Thanks to Snoopy for that expressive title. It is really all I needed to describe my angst after the Heels blew not one but two leads yesterday and fell in overtime to Maryland. Headlines using the phrase shock or upset describe my reaction very well. I read on line articles from several sources and the more I read the less fun it was. The AP photo below shows a Maryland player, Grevis Vasquez, who had  a career game,shooting over our Danny Green.This seemed as   good a reflection of the outcome as any.

Maryland Good, Carolina not so good

Maryland Good, Carolina not so good

But as I knew it would,the world as a whole says so what. As Dean Smith once told his son after a Carolina loss, a billion people on the other side of the world really could care less. I konw that is true and sometimes on rare occasions such as this, I wish that I didn’t care,but 50 year habits are hard to change, especially when one doesn’t really want to change.

So,the top ranked baseball team won twice, the women’s swimming and diving team came in second at the ACC Championships and Tar Heel freshman Layne Brodie had a great meet.All is not bleak in Tarheelia.

We will be back in the round ball wars. Let the games continue.
