North Carolina is terrible.
They are absolutely pathetic.
I watch this Roy Williams-coached team full of McDonald's All-Americans and future NBA first round picks, and I wonder how they could be so bad. I know they're young. I know it's a rebuilding year. I know they just lost Tyler Hansbrough and his irreplaceable Texas-style ping-pong skills. But, rebuilding and awful are two completely different things. And this team is awful.
If you or someone you know, can explain to me how this team has managed to lose nearly every single ACC game this season including seven of their last eight, please contact me at email@example.com. I'm not kidding. Seriously, e-mail me. I really want to know how they're so bad. I don't get it.
As far as tonight's game goes, Florida State won 77-67 but it never was a close contest. North Carolina was down 20+ at one point in the game. Fans were fleeing the Dean Dome faster than you could say "NIT Bubble". And when I say fans, I mean the handful that were in attendance. The upper-level of the Dean Dome was completely empty. The lower level had patches of die hard fans still living in the glory from 2009. But for the most part, the fans have given up on this team and I don't blame them.
Now it's time for us to move on to Morehead State to see some competitive basketball.
Dean Dome, it's been real.
Thanks for our second round of Bojangle's Famous Chicken'n Biscuits for the day and good luck in the future. Get some new chairbacks, too. Your current setup is incredibly uncomfortable.
