This is a sad loss for our state. Bill Friday seemed to have a vision for improvements in various aspects of life and was a voice of reason.
Brian Zoubek on what was going through his mind walking to the free throw line with 3.6 seconds remaining in the 2010 National Championship game and Duke up by 1: "Fifty percent [of me is] thinking, This is what I've been dreaming of doing my entire life. Fifty percent I'm crapping my pants."
I had forgotten that Friday was an original co-chair making the current mess at UNC more than a little ironic He must have been deeply saddened by the whole, sordid affair.
Truly, the greatest Tarheel of them all.
