long, but true..
The "Pokey was great" mythology remains, facts about her recruiting..Pokey almost killed our program...She helped recruit some great players for sure, but she also lost us many recruits who did not want to be "hit on" by an asst coach, (Tiffany Jackson to name one with whom we al...

3-11 vs top 50 rpi this year,

Next year is big year for NC...as have been the first 3. She has certainly shown an ability to get the team playing well in NCAA's last two years but losing 3 senior starters and in the SEC last year and even more so this year we were well below where we should be IMHO.

Need help here, I'm no expert on Pro Football Hall of fame, but do we have any that may make it in next decade. That we only have three in now and given our football history (especially last 15 years or so), I have to think we will get some in coming years, those who know, help me here

The $$ is what it is I have NO issue with NC's salary, now if she does not win (in 4 or so total years)she needs to be removed and the next coach will NOT cost less, if she wins she gets raises....we paid market price for a top 10 program (something UCLA is NOT)but something me and many others (once...

I view Thursday’s game versus Tennessee as perhaps the biggest to date for this team and a major “indicator” as to where NC has the program. A close loss or a win shows that any hangover from this recent losing streak is over and the team and coaches were prepared to bounce back to maybe being the ...
