I read that article about who would the Heels fans root against, Duke or Rick Barnes? I couldn't help thinking, shouldn't they worry about beating LSU first? If there is another thread on this topic I couldn't find it, but please feel free to merge this if I missed something.
As long as we can manage rooting for Duke and also praying that Carolina won't win the title, I am sure that some UNC fans can multitask as well. After all, they aren't talking about the PLAYERS.
so what's the deal with unc fans and rick barnes? is it just the fact that he had interviewed at duke?
I've never been a fan of Barnes(at any school), but I gained respect for him when he refused to back down from Smith in the '95 tournament.
He is a Hickory, NC native. I hear there is great BBQ there. Used to be a furniture factory town til our manufacturing went to China and other cheap labor countries.
My daughter was there and she cheered for the 'holes in the 1st game (boo) and Duke in the 2nd game (yes!).
