    UNC cutting the nets

    Yep! UNC is cutting down the nets for their 1st place tie with UVA. Looking back, we'd have cut a lot of nets

    It will look nice next to the 3rd Place NIT Banner, but maybe they need some stitches for Tyler's nose.

    Credits to LobsterDevil, AKA Orin Day. Heck, if you can get his permission, sized down that would be a heck of an avatar!

    Roy Williams said in his post-game chat that they only cut down one net because they were only co-champs, and that UVA was welcome to drive down and cut down the other. Now that I'd like to see.

    Even if he didn't copyright it he is part of our communty, and as a decent show of respect we wouldn't use one of his photographs without his permission.

    I hope no one accuses this UNC team of having title hopes. Roy said earlier this week he wasnt concerned about his team's ACC tourney play ( I under stand, but sets a really bad tone with a team as talented and dep a that one).
    With UNC laying down at the close of games, I'd pick most good mid majors over them.
    That's only a very small consolation prize as a Duke fan, but reminds me on UNC's 94 and 98 teams.

    It's got his marker on it, I orally credited him, and DBR has used the image on its front page before. But I'll email him too just to make sure it's OK.

    Classy.

    Maybe while we're looking for stitches y'all can try and locate someone who can guard him.

    classy???????

    lets not talk class, TH is the same guy who threw multiple elbows throughout the game, you guys had your starters in, not only that, he tried to dunk up 16 pts, yea and we are the ones who need class?, give me a break

    Hey, Chris, good to see you again. Things been better? Drop me a note when you can.

    Zoubek did a fine job of guarding him today and McClure did more than a fine job last time.

    By that argument, Duke should have cut down one of the nets in the Dean Dome when it beat unc for a first-place tie in the standings in 2001. Then K could have magnanimously "allowed" D'Oh to cut down the other net, becuase unc still had a share of the lead.

    Except when Zoubs got called for fouling him when breathing on him too hard. Lance had similar issues.

    My guess is that you are basing your comments on Barry Jacobs' statistical analysis that suggests Roy Williams does not do well in tight games. Carolina's 25 wins were by an average of 24 points, while their 6 losses were by an average of 4.7. I'll use 10 points as the definition of a "close game" for UNC given that Carolina is #1 in the nation in scoring margin and #2in ppg. In games decided by 10 points or fewer the Heels are 4-6. In games decided by 11 or more points they are 20-0. It seems to me that Roy's coaching record is pretty strong this year, and that analysis of games decided by a margin of <5 points is a weak attempt to tarnish his season. But, hey, I think that the public has learned some valuable lessons this week courtesy of Coach K and his masterful ability to put a spin on a story. I think that I am going to take from all of this "analysis" that Carolina dominated Duke both times we played since neither game was "close" by Jacobs' definition. Thanks, Coach K. You just made my day!

    I've heard a rumor that a new banner is in the works (from an inside source). An artist's rendition is shown here:

    NIT was no pushover tourney back then

    Back before all you young bucks were even born, the NIT was a major tournament. The banner you reference is no different than a Final 4 banner. Only conference tournament champs were invited to the NCAA tourney, so many strong teams went to the NIT. It was not like today when Duke will get to go to the NCAA tourney even though they compiled just an 8-8 regular season ACC record. The '73 Heels were 25-8.

    Maybe so, but 3rd place?!? Come on, now that's just silly.
