IMHO - March 16, 2011 Edition

Carolina wins!  They beat duke at The Hill on March 5th.  I wouldn't be surprised if you said you could hear me from wherever you were that night.  I was so raising the roof and screaming my head off, I'm shocked I had a voice to sing at church the next morning.

The ACC Tournament was disappointing as far as quality of play from the Heels.  It took a last second shot from Zeller in UNC's first game and OT in the second to secure the wins.  And that was after coming back from 14 and 19 points respectively.  This is not "Secretariat" (coming from behind all the time)!  And all Carolina fans knew they could not do that against duke and survive.  UNC did not show to give the devils a game (it's that simple).  The Heels could have been resting and practicing if they were not going to correct their mistakes and make an attempt at beating their rival - pathetic.

Now, March Madness is upon us.  The NCAA Tournament arrives and the Tarheels land a #2 seed.  Personally I think this was way to high for them, but....  The Heels drew LIU (Long Island Univ.).  "Long Island. North Carolina can ill afford to continue its ACC tournament trend and fall behind the Blackbirds early. LIU likes to score and score in bunches. The Blackbirds are ranked fourth in the nation in scoring and third in rebounding, which means they tend to get their misses. The Tar Heels are young enough that they could overlook the Northeast Conference champions and the Blackbirds are young enough to be brash enough to not be intimidated." (Dana O'Neil,

So, here we go.  Slip up and you are done, home bound. 
You have got to take care of business and give NO hope to anybody at anytime!
