In this social experiment of ours there are wishcasters bittercasters and very few in between.

I have had a roller coaster of emotions since Sunday with regards to basketball. First, the awful news about Kobe, his daughter, and the others getting killed in the helicopter crash. Kobe was my second favorite player to watch after Jordan.

And then last night my daughter's basketball team that I coach lost by 2 points. And my son's team that I also coach had a game right afterwards, and we won by 1 point to go undefeated for the regular season and win the division championship.

And then I got home and was shocked to see my Tar Heels beat State.

You should be disappointed unc didn't beat state by more. The worst 2 coaches in the acc reside in Raleigh right now and yow strapped us to some terrible contracts. Not sure what is generating more anger and apathy state athletics or winter

My son is a sensitive, emotional kid. He loves snow. Been looking out the window every morning hoping and praying. He’s disappointed so far. I’m planning to go to the mountains mid month. I sure hope he sees something!

He can win a nice flaming bag of dog poop on his front porch from me. Unwilling to change defense when we are getting scorched off the dribble and UNC is a putrid 3pt shooting team. We run 1 offense, if whoever sets the high screen doesn't get open on the roll to the basket then we just dribble for 20 more seconds and throw up off balance 3's. Garbage

That's pretty much it. He isn't going to run any sort of set half court offense. Run and gun and screen and roll. There doesn't seem to be a focus on fundamentals (rebounding, for instance), and there doesn't appear to be very much player development. I guess you can blame things on this being his 3rd year or him not having all of his players, if you want to. But there are many coaches out there that do much more with less than we have. Next year, we have a good recruiting class. If by the end of next season we have made no progress, I think you can safely throw in the towel on the KK era.

His style of play is great for high school and mid major levels where you can out athlete the other team. It's not going to work in the acc unless you are pulling in top 5 classes on the reg. If I ever hit the mega millions I'll pay the buy out for keatts and doeren but we would probably end up with 2 bigger idiots

Yeah that's the problem. Our admin is incompetent when it comes to bringing in real coaches. Just can't get it done.

Maybe since Yow is out things will change, I doubt it.

Not going to lie, I often wonder if we had kept OBrien and Gottfried would we be as bad today?

Yes. We would. And we would likely be in NCAA trouble in Bball.

I'm not sure Yow being gone is going to make much of a difference. I am not too impressed with this Boo guy.

Looks like the cold will be arriving just as you’re leaving. I’m cancelling my trip to beech mt on the 15th too. It’s really, really over and not just outside of the mountains.

Do you think that if we all got our accents together, along with our grills, a barnfull of yard-bird, a trainload of black-eyed peas and a truck load of okra, a couple 18 wheelers full of grits, a freezer truck full of coleslaw, plenty of grits mix, some kegs of whisky, a goodly portion of beer, an imported boat full of Lipton Tea bags, a few hundred shotguns and fishin' poles, and moved to say, Montana, we could create a collective new south ... with snow?

Lol, you know we are snow starved when 128 people are viewing a thread for a storm that is modeled to form and fade over a period of just over 6 hours and blanket an area only roughly the size of Connecticut.
