Is it time for basketball yet?

Yeah, I know. At this point most of you are probably still stressing more over your fantasy football rosters than you are Larry Drew’s assist-to-turnover ratio, but did you know Late night with Roy is little more than two weeks away? This column on John Henson was getting me excited today so I had to look it up.

That means in the coming weeks The Rafters will start to kick back into gear. The Tie-Tracker will be back, as well as post-game awards and thoughts, and of course, plenty of Duke-bashing.

We like to meet the needs of you, the reader. So please, if you have an idea or something you’d like us to focus on or do more of, please comment on this post with your suggestions. The management appreciates all your feedback.

Things are looking up this year – it would be hard for them not to – so pull your blue out of the closet and let’s get ready for some Tar Heel basketball!
