yep, also had that reaction when Cam saved it to Coby and he took the 3 (went in) instead of hitting Nas down low
that fast break was like when someone triggers the contraption in Mouse Trap
Garrison looking like Brice finishing that break
texted a buddy the same thing. he’s got a little brice in him even down to the moody mannerisms
Can you guys imagine being as good at anything as Roy Williams is at beating the shit out of NC State? Will be 35-4 in his career after the end of this one.
We are bound for biscuits you muthafuggers.
was bound to get a little sloppy I suppose, this thing's gonna end at midnight
Jokes on you Shig. We got biscuits

I like winning. It's like, better than losing.
feel like the first 30 minutes were as fast as I've ever seen us play
perfect game for us. we killed state but roy has plenty of ammo to hammer everyone for
errbody's jumped in on the Asante UNC cb train
There's this Fedora pc from November that keeps popping up in my recommended videos on youtube, when I think about that time it feels like a hazy dream from ages ago, blows my mind how much things have changed in such a short period of time
Thus far Mack has exceeded my wildest expectations. To clean up that dog shit class from fedora and turn it into something respectable is incredible.
things feel hopeful for the first time in forever. that ecu loss might have saved the program. we were at severe risk of losing an easy decade if we kept larry around for even another year
could probably say the same thing about the Fortin/Ruder injuries, as morbid as that sounds to say
nathan elliot the real mvp
Don: Mack Brown's Rapid Recovery
When Mack Brown was tabbed North Carolina's head coach in late November, there was no time to move into his office. He had to immediately save the 2019 class -- and that's exactly what he did.
In Larry Fedora's final days, UNC's recruiting, in general, lacked life. The class was ranked No. 63 in the nation and Sam Howell's flirtation was the only seemingly positive situation.
Fedora was fired on Nov. 25 and replaced by Brown two days later. Brown slowly but surely spearheaded a 31-spot charge up the 247Sports Team Rankings. When the dust settled on Wednesday, the Heels had the No. 32 class.
Landing four four-stars (Eugene Asante, Khafre Brown, Sam Howell, and Triston Miller) greatly aided the ascent. All four were secured following Brown's hiring.
Brown started by purging Fedora's commitment list. Despite those subtractions, Brown's quick efforts resulted in a splash during the Early Signing Period. The subsequent months were used to plug holes. Specifically, the linebacker hole was plugged by a prospect that was ostensibly stolen from an ACC Coastal Division rival.
Early Signing Day Splash
Although he had just three weeks to work with, Brown laid a robust foundation for this class during the Early Signing Period. Nearly 80 percent of the class was signed in December. What's even more remarkable is the number of early signees that the Brown regime specifically scored.
During his first three weeks in office, 13 recruits verbally committed to Brown: Khafre Brown, Obi Egbuna, Tomari Fox, Kevin Hester, Sam Howell, Khadry Jackson, Ben Kiernan, Tristan Miller, Justin Olson, Emery Simmons, Wyatt Tunall, and Kristian Varner. The prior regime had been courting some of those recruits, but Egbuna, Hester, Jackson, and Varner didn't begin hearing from UNC until Brown took office. Furthermore, Howell, Jackson, Miller, Simmons, and Tunall were committed elsewhere at the time of Brown's hiring.
Signing Day Steal
A year ago, Virginia Tech edged UNC for a four-star linebacker from the Tar Heel State (i.e. Dax Hollifield). On Wednesday, the Heels returned the favor by plucking a four-star linebacker from the Old Dominion State (i.e. Eugene Asante). Although other schools were involved, both recruitments were tug-of-wars between the Coastal Division rivals. Another commonality: Bud Foster was the Hokies’ primary recruiter for both.
With Asante, Virginia Tech built an ostensibly insurmountable lead. When he was nine years old, Asante enjoyed a memorable experience in Lane Stadium while watching his brother play for Nebraska. The Hokies recruited him throughout high school and extended him his first Power 5 scholarship, an act that resonated.
Acknowledging that it required the full month of January and then some to catch up, UNC strategically scheduled Asante’s official visit for the final weekend before National Signing Day. During the preceding weeks, the Heels sent multiple coaches to Asante’s home whenever permitted. Those coaches were tasked with building a bond with Asante and his family. Once in Chapel Hill for the official visit, Brown and company showed Asante how the aforementioned bond fits nicely within Chapel Hill's family-oriented environment.
Transition Alters Class
Different coaches understandably have different tastes. As such, UNC not only began to target new recruits under Brown, but the staff parted ways with six of Fedora’s verbal commitments: Raykwon Anderson, Brendan Harrington, Kenan Johnson, Coleman Reich, Jerrod Means, and Allen Smith. In particular, Reich had spent a year and a half on UNC’s commitment list.
All five eventually found collegiate homes elsewhere: Anderson and Harrington will be teammates at Appalachian State, Johnson signed with Georgia Tech, Reich enrolled at Coastal Carolina, Means opted for Tennessee, and Smith committed to Louisville.
Headliner: Ranked the No. 93 overall prospect nationally, Sam Howell is easily the highest ranked member of UNC’s 2019 class. That intrinsically warrants the “headliner” title. But, he's also the future quarterback of his home state's flagship university and was flipped from ACC rival Florida State at the eleventh hour. The four-star has already enrolled at UNC and will be given a chance to compete for the starting quarterback job, which has been unsettled -- to say the least -- the past two seasons.
Best in Class: While not a flip like Howell, Triston Miller spent five and a half months on NC State's commitment list before de-committing and then signing with UNC during the Early Signing Period. The signature gave the Heels another four-star talent. The 6-foot-6, 275-pound offensive tackle has the potential to become a standout blindside protector.
Sleeper Pick: Despite his production in the state's most competitive area, Power 5 schools overlooked Justin Olson (but, 19 others -- including a few Ivy League schools -- did offer). During his senior year, he caught 55 passes for 1,001 yards and 13 touchdowns, and averaged 45.8 yards on six kick returns. The highlight of his season -- and what convinced UNC to offer -- was a six-catch, 188-yard, and two-touchdown performance against national powerhouse Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek, which featured a stellar defense.
Immediate Impact: As a byproduct of a new coaching staff bringing in new schemes, several of UNC’s 2019 signees will receive a chance to make an immediate impact. But none of them walk into such an opportunistic situation as Drew Little. UNC had two long snappers on scholarship last fall and both have exhausted their eligibility. Considering Little’s ranking (No. 3 in the nation, according to Chris Rubio) and the opportunity available in Chapel Hill, it would be a surprise if he’s not the Heels' snapper the next four seasons.
lol at 2 of larry's guys ending at app, 1 at coastal and another at louisville which may as well be g5. christ this class was a miracle
Louisville only signed like 14 recruits to go with one of the lowest averages in the conference. I'm sure Satterfield would've had an easier transition recruiting for UNC with his in state ties established, but you have to wonder how long it would've taken him to turn our mess in recruiting around, and if he would've even been given enough time to do so.
no way he gets guys like asante or miller or asaboro. same for murray considering he was committed to louisville and flipped. woulda been lucky to get howell too imo and who knows with simmons
someone on ic suggested cotman as a guy to process since we are 7 over the limit
yeah that's a no for me
elliot will for sure be one. chazz either switches positions or becomes another. would guess sutton as well. believe they've already told thomas jackson he doesnt have a scholarship anymore. don't want to bc he was an elite recruit but wouldnt be surprised if melton ends up as a medical hardship guy considering i don't remember him ever playing
also fritts somehow has eligibility left?
I think whoever you hired would have gotten Miller. He was already looking around before Ledford left and was always a big Heels fan.
hope this arizona stuff keeps blowing up and we grab zeke and/or green
small sample but holy smokes at that #1 lineup
Luke just dunked on a guy
pretty shitty half. nas was awesome but outside of that was meh
couple coby 3’s and we’ll be good
interesting bar experiences the last two games
louisville game some guy bet me $10 that the first cards loss and duke’s win against uva was the same weekend. easy win
today the guy beside me swears he watched in person george mason beat us elite 8 and also is fully convinced that coby white is a white man bc of his last name
feel like home games with a sleepy crowd our typically our worst showings, so damn annoying
