While we get our shit together on some more thoughtful stuff, here’s some links:
- Seriously, that SLAM magazine cover is awesome, and so it this:
- The News & Observer is all over it this week. Here’s one on Harrison Barnes, who says “But it’s not national championship or bust for us.”
- Ummm, yes it is.
- N&O has media day pictures here, and a story on media day and how Heels’ players “dominated” the ACC preseason voting. Here’s one on some more general ACC stuff, with a enlightening comment on the Tar Heels. “UNC will win…..a lot.” Insightful stuff, Mr. Giglio.
- If you’re a Carolina fan, you probably already noticed that UNC will open the season at No. 1 in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll. Oddly enough, USA Today noticed, TOO! They ran an ass ton of stories on college basketball yesterday! You’ll like this one, and this one and just maybe, this one.
- This Durham Herald-Sun story is about a week old, but I hadn’t seen it yet! ZOMG! But it is interesting in that it has some of Roy’s take on conference expansion.
Have a a great weekend. We’ll be back at it on Monday.
