I stated when this season began that Miami would be in the mix. The crusty Larranago has total respect from his players. He outcoached Roy in the 2nd half last night. He took Bullock completely out of his game. Duke, State, Miami, FSU, and Maryland are the leaders right now. UNC may be next. I think that MD will beat State next week at home. Roy isn't a game coach. Games are won in practice, but when it close.....
Gunnstigator Jan 10, 9:58 p.m.
Roy has never been the best at making adjustments during a game, and yes, Larranago definitely coached his guys to take Bullock and McAdoo out of the game, and it worked.
I was glad to see Roy use his T/O's as well, but it was too little too late. I did see Roy coaching up the players, though, instead of sulking like he does sometimes.
It's going to be a long year, but you can't win 'em all.
Gunnstigator Jan 10, 9:55 p.m.
Thanks for keeping it classy, shaken. You could be on here slamming us like all the others, but you're not - thanks for that.
Gunnstigator Jan 10, 9:52 p.m.
Thankfully, Carolina plays that game in LIttlejohn, or yes, that streak would be over as well.
Gunnstigator Jan 10, 9:50 p.m.
Yeah, and if I see effort and hustle, I'm OK with it, and the guys did try tonight. I feel bad for them and worse for Roy.

Huckleberry can't coach unless he has 2,3 or 4 NBA 1st round draft choices on his team (which most folks could do with those lineups).
FAN72 Jan 10, 9:38 p.m.
Most State fans were too busy watching or attending the GT game to post on the forums.
Miami made half time adjustments to take Bullock and McAdoo out of the game during the second half.
PS...I was glad to see Coach Williams use his time outs at the end of the game setting up plays when the margin was close enough to close. Too many times he has left timeouts on the board when they could have been used for instructive adjustments.

the best this years unc team can go is 4-12 in the acc this team is certainly at the bottom of the acc no heart, no good coaching, no chemistry, and no judgement at all this team is getting outplayed outcoached in every game that being said roy williams is not doing a good job coaching this team just as he does most of the time in rebuilding seasons but this team should get better next year if we get some good players but this year we could very well be the worst team in the acc!
Dr.Phil Jan 10, 9:32 p.m.
JR Ried....Mr. UNC
shakennotstirred Jan 10, 9:31 p.m.
Miami got hot when it counted and UNC just can't find a hot shooter. They still will win some big games, hopefully not against the pack though.
ncstatefan13 Jan 10, 9:30 p.m.
You're mixing memories- Chris Washburn had the low SAT score (470) and Charles Shackleford was "amphibious". What's embarrassing about Lorenzo Charles? That he made the winning dunk to win the national championship?
Wolfpackindahizzy4shizzy Jan 10, 9:29 p.m.
it was Chris Washburn that scored that...
sheesh... at least get your OBSESSION RIGHT!!!
tough break, pansy fan.

"cheaters never win "
There is no doubt that what has happened at Tarhole U will leave a stain on them for years...LOL...
uncsuckz Jan 10, 9:24 p.m.
don't forget Kevin Madden from Staunton, Va and his 490. DES welcomed him with open arms.
mickhall64 Jan 10, 9:23 p.m.
He wasn't as smart as Highsmith. He cheated off of a 2nd grader instead of a 11 year old. I'm suprisedn I haven't heard the "just wait till football season" mantra yet :)

This team is worse than any under Matt D. I would not be surprised if UNC finished this year at the bottom.
Wolfpackindahizzy4shizzy Jan 10, 9:22 p.m.
hey.. look on bright side, roxboro... at least you're NOT counting!!!
wait... err.... derp!
chin up, lil fella!
mxteam44 Jan 10, 9:20 p.m.
The young guys haven't figured out how to help on defense. They over-rotate, then leave a guy wide open for a 3.
mxteam44 Jan 10, 9:19 p.m.
Or Chris Shackleford? "Mr 460 SAT"? Now THAT'S funny right there! You get 400 for signing your name to it! Maybe he misspelled that too?
321oohaw Jan 10, 9:15 p.m.
...Can us say Lorenzo Charles? enough said embarrasment wise
west1117722 Jan 10, 9:14 p.m.

PanthersFan45 Jan 10, 9:09 p.m.
2 games in a row now that the tempo was dictated to them by their opponent. Whats very noticeable is the lack of defense, plus most of their players look lanky and can't play physical. It was obvious to me that Miami came out in the 2nd half and wanted to show some muscle around the basket, the Tar Heels were beaten badly on the boards (both ends). I don't like saying this but I would not be surprised if Clemson (who hasn't won in Chapel Hill in several decades), actually wins here. This is the weakest Tar Heel team I can think of in quite some time. The teams under Matt Doherty were talented, but the players didn't care for him. This is different ...... the team just doesn't communicate and help each other out. I expect better from Roy but theres only so much he can do, he must be frustrated with what he sees.

It's time for Ole Roy to earn some of his salary. These guys need a full dose of man-up. Let's put a second half together with a good first half. The U changed something at the half. What did we do?
Evidently, not much. Let's get it together Heels...............
mxteam44 Jan 10, 8:57 p.m.
This guy wouldn't know what a pronoun was if Google didn't exist!

The youth of this team really showed tonight. We all knew this would be a frustrating season. Roy is coaching for next year at this point. It is what is is!
Gunnstigator Jan 10, 8:55 p.m.
Oh well. I saw some improvement and effort. Guess we won't see Roy in that suit again, though.
barry333 Jan 10, 8:55 p.m.
there's not 1 player starting for the heels that should start anywhere! all of these guys are role players and they don't even know their role! macadodo is not lottery or even second round material! terrible looking team this year and seems the coaches on the bench have no say so at all in game decisions! cca maybe?
mxteam44 Jan 10, 8:54 p.m.
LOL! 60 posts by the time the game ENDS, and 30 are from a State fan! I swear, you're making it hard for me to pull for State on Saturday!
Observing Sassie and Laughing Jan 10, 8:48 p.m.
Great game! UNC-CHEAT gets that kicked again! LOL at Carolina! And by the way, GTHC!

I didn't use the pronoun you. I used they. Are you they?
Wolfpackindahizzy4shizzy Jan 10, 8:04 p.m.
Exactly... Now then... Your point about ME being here??
