As I write, it is a balmy 25 degrees, wind chill 16, in northeastern North Carolina. The sun is shining and there is a brilliant blue sky overhead. And, yes I am amazed. Why is there a blue sky overhead? How can it be so? You see, the Tar Heels fell on their sword last night down in Charleston, SC in trying to be nice to an old friend in Bobby Cremins.
Cremins used to hang out at Georgia Tech but now coaches at the College of Charleston. Yesterday’s Raleigh paper had a nice article about Cremins and the game, adding that there was no chance Cremins team could win last night. Shoulda seen it coming after that. Carolina had 2 starters out with injuries and their guards ended up shooting percentages equal to today’s temps.
Yes, there were late game snafus, a miracle shot at the end of regulation, etc that should have never mattered. Did I forget to mention the 11 point lead that vanished in the last 4 minutes? How could I forget that?
I could wax eloquent and wonder what fate will befall us when the games arrive versus Duke (ugh) and others. Will there be an ACC victory this season- sure- How many- good question.
One last aside. On my Tar Heel collectible shelf, there stands a soft drink bottle commemorating the 1982 National Championship. It fell off the shelf today, all by itself. Must have been in shock.
Things will improve, right? And probably even before next season, right? Well, there is always last year to remember!
