    Dean Smith: 1931-2015 

    deansmith

    By now, you’ve probably heard about the passing of Dean Smith, the father of Carolina basketball. His efforts on the court and, more importantly, off the court are probably the reason you’re even reading this blog — the reason you love UNC. He inspired us to believe in doing things the right way, for the right reasons. By loving Carolina, we felt like we showed our support for that ethos, even from a distance.

    He once told John Feinstein that, “You should never be proud of doing what’s right. You should just do what’s right.”

    We don’t need the clicks, and certainly don’t want to capitalize on this loss, so we’ll point to the passer. Read the Feinstein piece above, and then hear what Roy Williams has to say here. If you need some more, try this Adam Lucas piece.

    Thank you, Mr. Smith, for the memories and the lessons. You are already missed.

    Roy Williams Tie Tracker: William & Mary 

    One thing all UNC fans have come to know, love and expect of Roy Williams is his fashionable selection of ties, most often courtesy of Chapel Hill outfitter Alexander Julian. The same man who put the argyle on the side of the basketball uniform is still turning heads with what he’s putting around Ol’ Roy’s neck. So, here at The Rafters we decided to pay homage to the best accessory in college hoops, if not the entire sporting world, and document every Roy Williams tie this season.

    Roy and coaching staff were wearing purple ties against UNC-Greensboro to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer and honor Roy’s friend Ted Seagroves. Also, note UNC alum Jackie Manuel and Wes Miller looking good on the Spartans’ bench.

      I noticed Roy Williams wearing a blue puzzle piece lapel pin this game. I was intrigued by
      it and started my search for one which led me here. I think it’s the Autism
      Speaks pin; can you tell me if this is correct? Also, are these available
      somewhere? Would love to get one to wear.
      Thanks!

      Go Heels!!
