I thought Wiggins would take them deep into the tourney, but Sanford came up huge today standing tough when Kansas would come at them.  I don't mind watching my bracket get destroyed, if Kansas goes out early.  w00t!

Wiggins should have came to UNC. 

 

FTR - I had Kansas losing this game but it was to New Mexico.

I'm glad he didn't. Tokoto has really developed this year & he would've been buried on the bench. If we had Wiggins Tokoto would've been a Jr next year with almost no experience.

Now he looks like he'll be very, very good as an upperclassmen.

-Berry

-Paige

-Tokoto

I'd guess that being the 1-3 starters next year. Very dangerous back court.

I always root for Kansas and Kentucky to lose, because they are the only two programs with more all time wins than UNC, even though they played 10 more seasons.  If UNC wins today, and UK also loses, then they will be tied for the season, even though KU and UK played one more game.

 

Then, once UK has a couple of seasons voided for recruiting violations, like every other program Calipari has ever coached, UNC will move back up.

 

FTR, Dook is still 100 games out.

'10 really hurt UNC. They were caught up with UK due to their woes & Roy's ridiculous run from 04-09. It'll be hard to catch them again any time soon.

The 8-20 season under Matt took UNC out of the top spot, and they've been clawing their way back ever since.  Will be a while, though, to catch up the 10 games they are behind.  Still 2nd all time in win %.

if we can get another shooter, we're a final 4 team all day long...would have been this year with Hairston.

good points...it's funny how stuff works out sometimes. It's easy to sit back and say "Man, if Hairston was still at UNC, they'd win the title...", but who knows...maybe Paige doesn't breakthrough if PJ was still around...and he would have certainly bit into some of Tokoto's minutes too. Britt also would have played a lot less.

Even if JMM leaves for a possible second round draft pick - I still believe they are going to be one of the top 4-5 teams in the country next season. Leslie is the only sure thing that's gone  next year. Not to mention the experience the young guys have got this year, and let's be honest here this type of up/down year, especially with the Hairston stuff, builds character and brings people together. Stuff like that can tear you apart, but Roy hasn't let it happen.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
