    all 3 gone

    Well, unless Inside Carolina has been hacked, the IC Staff just posted that Henson, Barnes, and Marshall are all leaving.

    Look back at post #61. NBC-17 (Raleigh) had a news crawl this morning during the Today show saying "Insidecarolina.com has confirmed...", but I never saw any confirmation anywhere. Sorry to have jumped the gun (probably just lazy reporting by NBC), but hopefully it WILL come true.


    Oops - see above!!!

    Thanks, guys, for pointing me in the right direction above. I obviously just glanced over that part of the thread without noticing it.

    What a glorious start to the off-season that would be. If the big three (Henson, Marshall and Barnes) all leave, and they are somehow followed by Michael McAdoo (who, from what I understand, is predicted to go top ten in some mock drafts), the heat on Roy, it will be on.

    The thought of a repeat of UNC 2010 is enough to make me want to front crawl to Australia and actually hug a black falcon.

    Now we just have to wait on McAdoo to make his decision. Next year could be very interesting, unc will not be a traditional unc team with a very limited frontcourt, NCSU could be the cream of the crop in the acc and it's too early to tell where Duke will stand (we have too many variables that are yet to be decided).

    From the wral article:

    “I’m honored and blessed to have the opportunity to compete in the NBA,” says Barnes. “The love and respect I have for basketball fuel the drive toward my ultimate goal – to experience an illustrious career in the NBA. I have consulted with Coach Williams and my family, and although it was a difficult decision, I have decided to enter this year’s NBA draft.
    "illustrious career"?
    well, we'll see

    3 UNC guys headed off to the big show

    Marshall surprises me, not the other 2.

    Wooops, this has already been covered in another thread, I see no reason to keep this around except for the sole reason to highlight it!

    Marshall doesn't surprise me. I think in addition to being a great pg, he had a wealth of talent surrounding him this year that helped his stock skyrocket. It was the perfect time for him to leave. I doubt he would have put up the same kind of numbers next year. The late season injury probably also served as a reality check.

    This seems accurate to me - his entire college career has been an illusion.

    Interesting that they all announced at once.

    Also, agents?

    That's the way UNC usually does it. Wonder what that means for McAdoo.

    Regardless, it'll be an entirely different UNC team next year. I suspect that they'll be adding Oriakhi now, which will help their frontcourt. But that's no longer a top-10 team in my opinion, even if McAdoo comes back.

    I can't say I'm surprised, but as a greedy Carolina fan I'm really sorry to see them go. I was particularly hoping, and mildly optimistic, that Marshall would stick around another year, but his stock is so high one can hardly blaming him for going now. A Marshall/McAdoo combination could have been potent. Oh well. Looks like it may be NCSU's year.

    It always stings when a guy leaves early, no matter how expected it might be. Last year I was still holding out hope that Kyrie would come back, right up until the minute he announced, even though the writing had been on the wall for some time. And it sucks that you guys had a perfect storm of talent and experience this year that got derailed by injuries, much like it did for us last year. Anyways, as a Duke fan I hope this swings the pendulum back in our favor, though a lot remains to be determined. Agree that NCSU has the talent to be right up there with the big two regardless of any remaining departures or additions.

    Probably no announcement for McAdoo until next week. But his exclusion from this announcement shouldn't be considered evidence in either direction.

    The greedy Duke fan in me is glad Marshall won't stick around to break Hurley's record. But I did enjoy watching him in college.

    Although it's sacrilegious to say this, for the non-Duke-fanatic, very-interested-but-disinterested bball fans, a UK-UNC NC game might have been a classic.

    As a Duke fanatic, I'd have to have taken comfort that one of them had to lose.

    But, with a healthy Marshall, and certainly with a healthy Marshall and Strickland, that would have been an enticing prospect.

    So, I'm happy Roy doesn't get a shot at #3 in 2012. And an NC for Barnes would have been exceedingly difficult to stomach. But I do admire the great play of Zeller and Marshall.

    Well, did.

    Based on Roy's quote in the ESPN article, they aren't coming back.

    Best news of the day.

    Total rebuilding year for the Heels next year.

    Plus, Stillman White is gone for his mission, Watts and Zeller graduated. That leaves Strickland and McDonald coming off injuries, and the incoming freshmen.

    The only downside is... what does this mean for recruits who have not decided on a school yet? How many add UNC back to their lists?

    And Reggie Bullock. And PJ Hairston. And possibly James McAdoo. Still a very talented group.

    I don't see a lot of size there...
