NC State: 33 Years and Counting


To celebrate last night’s win which completes the sweep of NC State in men’s basketball during the regular season once again, we thought we’d update an old graphic that was created while the Wolfpack’s ill-advised “Our State” advertising campaign was ongoing.

Yes, it has been 33 years since the Wolfpack has won a national championship in any sport except… wait for it… Bass Fishing.  North Carolina might be NC State’s state on a level much different from the one they attempted to promote, but that stat is definitely theirs.

  • NC State is 3-30 against Roy Williams.
  • The last time the Wolfpack had a coach with a winning record against UNC is when they had Everett Case on the sideline from 1946 to 1965. Case was 25-19 against the Tar Heels.
  • NC State is now 77-153 against UNC in men’s basketball.

To be fair, it’s difficult to excel in anything else if you spend every waking moment focused on how to bring down UNC.   Or should we say “UNCheat”, the not-so-ingeniously creative way those adorable whimpering pups now refer to the Tar Heels?

North Carolina NCAA National Semifinals Game Film

Marcelo Perez - Basketball in a SpoonThis is an exciting weekend for the fans of  the Louisville Cardinals, Kentucky Wildcats, Ohio State Buckeyes, and Kansas Jayhawks.  All four teams will play in the NCAA National Semifinals this evening in New Orleans.  The North Carolina Tar Heels lost to Kansas in the Elite Eight of this year’s NCAA tournament and didn’t make the trip to New Orleans.

At least four members of the current Tar Heel squad have decided to enter the upcoming NBA draft; only one has exhausted his college eligibility.   And the exodus to the NBA may not end there.  James Michael McAdoo is still deciding whether to make the leap with his teammates — Harrison Barnes, John Henson, Kendall Marshall, and Tyler Zeller — or to return to UNC for his sophomore season.

Not only will UNC fans miss the opportunity to watch the 2011-2012 Tar Heel hard court edition reach their dream of winning a National Championship for themselves, their coaches, and all of Tar Heel Nation, but also, we have this entire weekend to ponder what might have been if this talented team could have avoided the unusually high number of serious injuries they suffered this season.  And then there’s this little issue concerning our frontcourt for the 2012-2013 season.

Instead of worrying about McAdoo’s decision and moping around while the Cardinals take on the Wildcats and the Buckeyes take on the Jayhawks, maybe you Tar Heels would enjoy watching a few of Carolina’s previous NCAA National Semifinals.

UNC vs Duke — I Can Finally Almost Talk About It

Okay, I confess.  Twelve days have passed since that atrocious UNC vs Duke game, and I can still hardly discuss it.  It was a nightmare — an unbelievable, unforgettable nightmare.

In all my years of watching or playing basketball, I never saw or participated in a game called so poorly by the refs.  That crew of ACC refs missed call after call that any junior high ref should have been able to make.  How is that even possible if they’re trying to do their jobs honorably?  I doubt I will ever forget or get over that.

And for all the Dukies who want to share their snide remarks about whiny Carolina fans, my response is: Look at the tape.  The tape doesn’t lie, and it doesn’t cheat.  It’s also not intimidated by Coach K’s constant stream of abuse.  Just look at the tape. The proof is there for all but a completely blind person to see.

That said, I would like to add that our guys should have still pulled out that game in spite of the despicable calls and non-calls.  They weren’t quite mentally tough enough to get it done, however.

Also, congratulations to Austin Rivers for playing a great game and for hitting a helluva shot to win the game.  He showed that he had the  courage and the skills to excel on a big stage.  I don’t appreciate the middle-finger salute he offered up to our student section once the game ended, but that wasn’t any worse than the obscenities shouted by their team trainer as he ran off the court. What great examples of class, sportsmanship, and respectability!

Anyway, as I was scanning the net tonight, I ran across this podcast on Tar Heel Bred Tar Heel Dead.  Andy and Reed do a nice job sharing their thoughts on that Duke game.
