North Carolina spent last Sunday as college basketball's biggest loser, then spent this Sunday as college basketball's biggest winner. It's one of the great things about this sport -- watching teams adapt and make people reconsider everything they thought they knew.
You can put them in those iconic blue uniforms, let them walk out of the home locker room at the Dean Smith Center, and even give them a Hall of Fame coach with two national titles on his resume. But that alone won't make North Carolina very good. If you didn't realize it before, surely you realize it now -- after Sunday's home loss to Belmont.
We are now just days away from the start of college basketball's regular season, and I realize you're probably so distracted by football that you haven't had a chance to comb through everybody's schedules to figure out when and where the best non-conference games will be played.
That's why I'm here.
