Your “Show of Hands…Who’s Still Here?” U*NC Game Thread

gross

In spite of a boatload of distractions over the past several days (none of which I plan to talk about in this entry, because there are plenty of other places where those things are being discussed), the reeling Pack (14-12, 3-10 ACC) welcomes their non-rivals to the PNC tonight.  Carolina (21-5, 9-3 ACC) is coming off a loss at Duke.  Let’s at least TRY to slap 2 in a row on ’em???

The Wake Forest game….review at your own peril.

Let’s Take This In a Different Direction

It’s Carolina.  Regardless of what may or may not be going on in our own house, I STILL hate these guys and I STILL want to beat the stink off these guys.  So for a few hours, on this thread at least, let’s try to direct the hate properly….

UNC-Battered-Ram

Here’s your target.

So, Carolina jokes….

  • Q:  How do you neuter a Carolina fan?
  • A:  Kick his sister in the jaw.

Lucas: Pack History Ignites Williams (GoHeels.com)

It’s NC State week, so you know what that means for Roy Williams.

“He gets fired up every time we play them,” Theo Pinson said after the last time the Tar Heels faced the Wolfpack, a 51-point victory in Chapel Hill. “There’s a certain spark he has when we play NC State…You can just tell by his voice. He wants our execution to be perfect because it’s NC State.”

That approach has worked, as Carolina has enjoyed significant success against NC State in the Williams era. The last NCSU win in the series in Raleigh came in 2013, and Carolina has won 20 of the last 22 meetings between the two Triangle squads.

With such a dramatic edge in the series, why does Williams still get so amped to play the Wolfpack? It’s because his formative years as a Tar Heel came in a very different time in Carolina-State history.

Williams arrived in Chapel Hill as an undergraduate in the fall of 1968. Those were good Tar Heel basketball times, as Dean Smith directed the program to three straight Final Fours. Carolina eventually stretched out a 10-game winning streak over the Pack that was snapped in December of 1970. This was an era when it wasn’t unusual for Carolina and State to play three times during the regular season, with a pair of ACC meetings plus a Big Four Tournament contest in Greensboro.

That’s where the series turned, as the Pack took a victory in December of 1970. And after four more Carolina wins, Norm Sloan’s team won the final UNC-NCSU game of Williams’ undergrad career, an 85-84 upset in Reynolds Coliseum of the fifth-ranked Tar Heels, and then proceeded to win a total of nine games in a row against their hated foes from Chapel Hill.

 

Frankly, I like that the overblown little Huckleberry Hound looking [insert your profane insult here] dislikes us.  The whiny cheating little [insert additional profane insult here].

    We must document the atrocities. Perhaps there will be a streaker? Perhaps GOTT will be the streaker??

    I’m going (its business). Was hoping Hodge would be interim coach. Two possible outcomes: we win by 2 or we lose by 42. Wise guys say Cheaters giving 10. Holy Crap, that is an absolute no brainer.

    I’m here, but I am not going to watch the game or otherwise pay any attention to it.

    Sorry, Pack Hoops, but if your apathy made me apathetic too.

    Baby sitting. Betty than being at game.

    Did put on some red and logo items.

    Obviously not pulling for UNC, but somewhat apathetic.

    Probably only one of you that feels that way.

    Go Pack. RIP.

    Whoever is at game, field report on ratio of Red to Blue.

    Also intensity of BOOS when GOTT is introduced.

    I have TWO pregame speeches in my head…

    1. “Last time we gott beat by 51pts… that’s NOT who WE ARE… TONIGHT is our season… TONIGHT we SHOW ’em who WE ARE…. T0NIGHT is our NIGHT, in our HOUSE!!!”

    … and these kids and Coach come out too high and sh#t the bed…

    2. “Forget the last game, forget the season, forget everything and everybody… and let’s just go out there and play OUR GAME… OUR GAME… not their game…”

    … Coach, wtf… you mean that game we did twice this year — against VT and Dook?, Coach, how about ….we don’t have a game…

    This a tough one to call…

    POP!!!
