UNC vs. NC State

As far as I'm concerned, Copeland had that foul coming when he tried to dunk with 2 seconds left. You can't expect McCauley to just stand there and let him try to humiliate us. He should've known better than to try to score, and then should've realized that and not charged at McCauley when he fouled him.

As far as the mural goes, it wont be treated as a criminal act because that mural is painted on the Free Expression Tunnel. It is there for anyone to paint anything that they want on it (hence, why the students that painted the anti-Obama statements in November didn't face criminal charges.)

nobody ever has a hard foul coming, he should have played the ball instead of trying to tackle him midair, and I do admit Copeland should have never tried to retaliate. Play hard, go after the ball and if he gets fouled then he gets fouled.......People can get hurt and sometimes have season ending injuries on hard intentional fouls....Like I said it should have never came down to that, because Carolina should have ran the clock out. I just still think it is just as classless for McCauley to intentionally foul Copeland hard when he could have been a bigger person about it. It is over though, and there is nothing that we can change about it, just agree to disagree.

I understand about the mural being in the Free Expression Tunnel, but damn I think they should do something if they find the person that did that, and make them make a public apology to NCSU faculty and students or at least something.

Who the hell else would it have been? I don't know if you went to Carolina or not but if you did you would know that most of them are rich, stuck-up assholes that have no sense of right or wrong. It surprises me not at all that the mural was defaced...I actually kind of expected it.

well i do go there but i really don't associate with that crowd. i could imagine it would be a drunk fan or something. that sh*t was wrong and everyone i talked to said it was despicable and wrong. cancer ain't a joking matter and it damn sure it ain't fun and neither was the defacing. i hope their ass get kicked out of Carolina

I guess thats all we can do is agree to disagree.

I too wouldn't mind getting an apology from whomever painted all that stuff over the mural, but forcing someone to apologize for painting on a wall that was designated as a place for you to expression your own opinion just isn't right.

i don't blame Cope at all for trying to score... but after he got up, trying to get in that dude's face was a stupid thing to do. He just lost his cool. Like he said, he should've just shot his free throws and got on the stat sheet.

Yeah, I agree that Copeland should have kept his cool, but I just don't see how people can be so outraged that the guy wanted to dunk when he got the chance. As far as I'm concerned, when the 3rd stringers come in the game, they're there to play ball ball. If the other team's starters can't stop them, that's their problem.

Also, did he ever even touch McCauly after that play?

If you're ok with him trying to dunk then I'm ok with the foul....I thought it was dumb on both sides.

Well, I can see the argument about dunking on someone in the closing minutes of a game as being a little classless, but it's just as classless to to mug someone on that attempt. In the end it's supposed to be a rival.

As I said earlier, if you're going to attempt to dunk with 2 seconds left when you've already got the game comfortably in hand, then you should expect a foul to be coming your way.
