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?



Finish the Season Strong

McAdoo’s early foul trouble, Meeks’ illness, a great game by Hood, and a stellar game by Parker were too much for this Heel team to overcome. They’ll learn from this, and they’ll grow because of this.

This season is far from over, and we’ll still make some noise this year in both tournaments. But the dividends of some of these tough losses — especially the one tonight — will really show up next year and even the next.

We can’t start a game like this not matching their intensity. We have to stay poised and take care of the ball much better than we did tonight. (Early in the game, we had 6 points and 6 turnovers. Think about that.) And Paige can’t wait until the second half to start exerting his will on the offensive end. He has to break that pattern.

A coach can tell players those things over and over and over. But sometimes the players only partially understand words. They think they understand, but on nights like tonight, it becomes clear what “playing with a sense of urgency” and “playing the full 40 minutes” really means.

We have good guys on our team. They have heart, they’re talented, they’re coachable, and they’re resilient. They never give up — one of my favorite things about this team. They have far exceeded my expectations once we all learned PJ would not rejoin the team. But my expectations for them next year will be much higher.

For now, let’s finish the season strong. Let’s try to continue to exceed expectations. Let’s keep getting better.

Go Heels!

UNC vs Duke — Round 1, 2014

UNC Stomps Duke 400 x 400

Here we sit less than 48 hours away from tip-off of potentially one of the most exciting men’s college basketball games of the season:  UNC vs Duke — Round 1 in Chapel Hill.

Duke is the higher ranked team and the team most of the talking heads expect to come out victorious Wednesday night.  But when these two rivals meet, you never know what the outcome will be until it happens.

Tonight,  #17 ranked UNC women’s basketball marched a team of mostly freshmen and sophomores into Hansbrough Indoor Stadium, a.k.a. Cameron Indoor Stadium, and handily knocked off the #3 ranked women Blue Devils 89-78.  Let’s hope the ladies inspired our Tar Heel men to follow suit and complete the sweep of Round 1, UNC vs Duke.

UNC Beats Clemson in Chapel Hill 57 Straight

Not This Year!  57 and Counting...  UNC Beats Clemson in Chapel Hill again.

“UNC Beats Clemson in Chapel Hill”

You’ve heard or read that headline quite a few times unless you’re awfully young or you simply don’t follow Tar Heel basketball.  At some point, Clemson is bound to win again in Chapel Hill.   They have to, don’t they?  Obviously, odds are in their favor.

Year after year, decade after decade, Tar Heels tell each other that Clemson is eventually going to a game in Chapel Hill.  But it didn’t happen in 2014.

Clemson has won exactly ZERO times in the last 57 meetings against the Tar Heels on the hard court in Chapel Hill.  #KeepTheRecordAlive, Tar Heels.
