Brief blog this morning as I have work to do here at work. Bob Holiday writes some nonsense about loving college life. I love college life, but at some point you have to make a living, no? Camp is over and all three Heels will have a few private workouts with some teams before making their decisions.  Lawson only played one day and it seems he may have heard what he wanted from people in the know. No, Jim Young, I did not wince. All three have a legitimate shot at being drafted in the first round. All three have a legitimate risk of not being drafted in the first round.

The Dodgers have not been killing enough rallies. Not worth reading anymore, really. He is crazy.

There is no news about Wayne, Tywon, or Danny. All three have a legitimate shot at being drafted in the first round. All three have a legitimate risk of not being drafted in the first round. Carolina March blogs on the silly gridiron post-season. Adam Gold interviews Roy Williams.

As much as I dislike Boston sport and also Kobe Bryant, the country can’t really take Sp*rs-Pistons, can we? Dodgers get bad news. Poor Cincinnati. Derby County’s season review. I’ve never been less excited about a cash cup final. This is brutal. The King had no helpNixicheck? Dolphins having another great off-season.

Boston cheating again? I fear for my sanity when I agree with Tom Brady. I really think women’s tennis should consider this. Joe Morgan is back! Why did the Dodgers ever fire this guy to hire Ned Colletti? We could be good.

Not much news that I could find this morning. Most of you probably know that Carolina has a very very good baseball team. The conference tournament is 10 days away and it is a great time for those who love the sport. I understand that aluminum bats are a necessary evil, but I just can’t watch the sport. Good luck to the Heels though!

Elsewhwhere, there is no news about Wayne, Tywon, or Danny. All three have a legitimate shot at being drafted in the first round. All three have a legitimate risk of not being drafted in the first round.

Gary Williams not sweating this?  No more time this morning. . .

Good Decisions

I’ll be a bit short on time this week, but I can’t imagine there will be too much to talk about. Tyler Hansbrough is retuning for his senior season. This is fantastic news and who isn’t looking forward to a fourth season from Psycho T?  Legend! Tywon Lawson, Wayne Ellington, and Danny Green will all take the pH of NBA aqua. None of the three has singed with an agent. I pointed out last week that declaring without signing an agent rarely changes the status of the player but with nothing to risk, why not? The NBA pays for everything, the player gets some unbiased feedback and has more time to make a very tough decision. Check out early positional rankings here.

Tar Heel Fan blogs about why Danny’s decision was a bit different. Barry Jacobs thinks Tyler made the right call. Til tomorrow.

Good News From Mom?

I’m reaching pretty hard for something this morning. Jackie Lawson says:

“We haven’t talked about it yet,” Jackie Lawson told The Fan Sunday night. “Right now it’s a return to school.”

Let us completely breakdown this all important quote.  Tywon Lawson may or may not return to Carolina.

No time for further blogging this morning. Til tomorrows. . .

Monday Is Not So Bad, Eh?

The Monday after the clocks spring forward can be a tough one. Fortunately, we can read all about Saturday night. I don’t have much time this morning, but I really do think Coach K should take some heat for the loss. We might have won anyways, but trying to limit possessions at home, up 2, with 5:44 left is completely weak. Dook started out tight and had no idea what to do with Carolina’s excellent, switch on every screen, man-to-man defense. Still, from the 8 minute mark until the last six minutes, they played very good basketball. Why would a team who was scoring so effectively stop doing what had given them the lead? It is inexplicable. Even if there had only been three minutes left, you can’t sit on a 2 point lead against one of the best offenses in basketball. Ridiculous, and I can’t believe how many writers are giving him a pass.

Barry Jacobs mentions that the Devils had this game. Dan Huffman thinks Carolina was just more mature. Pat Ford thinks Carolina is the favorite. Adam Lucas is emotional. Aaron Beard says Dook started and finished terribly. Lawson thinks he’ll be 100% by next weekend. Tyler was not touched? Lennox Rawlings notes that a rematch is not all that likely. Brett Friedlander writes that the game somehow lived up to the hype. Bill Cole ddoesn’t think we are satisfied. Dascenzo wonders if there could be a fourth meeting. Tar Heel Fan has the best picture! ACC tournament pairings. Out of time.
