They both do it.

I don't think a "fan" of a basketball program that can't fundamentally shoot free throws is at liberty to judge a real basketball program and their coaching capabilities.

There's better basketball players at Park Road Park RIGHT NOW than there are at Crap State.

That wasn't a flop. It looked like sloppy footwork and bad defense.

Please watch basketball.

Someone, needed to sleep that one off didn't they.

I watched it. I was at my parent's house doing some christmas things and my dad had to rewind that over a few times to show me. he clearly got to the foul line and turned around for a charge, stood still, and actually was in perfect position. One thing didn't happen though, he didn't get touched but yet he collasped. You're in denial about that.

Also about me being a fan of app state basketball... Have you seen me post anything here, EVER, about app state basketball? If that is going to be your rebuttal to everything I say I'm just going to quit responding, even though I have fun pointing out your ridiculous arrogance about your basketball knowledge.

Haha, Greg Paulus had bad footwork too then.

There's better basketball being played in Greenville NC than in Chapel Hill

    • Great. That's like putting this guy in charge
    • As far as the OP's question, any OT, Allen (wasn't impressed with him in the playoffs), Lattimore, Charlton and a QB. I'd be happy with Adams, Hooker, Fournette and Howard. I'd love Fournette or Howard.
    • Again, your generalizing people.  While there are plenty of examples of trashy people (lord knows my mother's side of the family is basically a garbage dump of humanity), you can't paint the entire community in that scope.  Like many of the bootstrappers, you say "if I can do it, anyone can."  That's not true. I have a ton of stories of kids with potential, drive, brains, determination who are simply lost due to their demographics and experience.  I know a kid who was from an absolutely horrible situation.  His parents were jailed, raised by his aunt and uncle as a 2nd class citizen when compared to his cousin.  I mean, they provided, but they failed in the love department.  Not quite Harry Potter situation.   He was brilliant, earned a full ride to NCSU, but failed out in the first semester because while he could navigate a crappy neighborhood and poorly supported high school; he was unable to cope with the rich, white world of the majority of NCSU kids.  Culture shock.  Thankfully, he found the military, got his life straightened out, and is stationed in Hawaii and keeps posting these beautiful images of the islands. While it's fairly easy for white people of all income levels to navigate the great world of white culture, minorities and especially minorities from poverty have an extremely difficult time "fitting in" to the greater, whiter world.  It has nothing to do with their work ethic, their intelligence, but simply stepping into a world that is so different from where they are from. Hence why there's a significant amount of internet tension between bootstrappers and those who think it's fine to help those who need some help. What I'm seeing based on his news posts is a general level of ignorance of the people around him.  I mean, I get it, there are many examples on the huddle and in the world of people who overcame adversity, but they are the exception, not the norm.  That dirty word "white privilege," or more accurately "middle class privilege," blinds people to the realities of those outside of their small circles. Now before the angry, poor-to-rich bootstrappers get huffled about being called middle class, how hard was it for you to walk into a bank, talk to people, be taken seriously, and do business?  Despite their relative levels of poverty, they still have an advantage of knowing how to function in the greater, whiter world.
