One more North Carolina thing, and then I’ll move on, I swear. One of the most enjoyable things to do after a big win is read the other opponent’s message boards. It’s REALLY fun to do when the other team has fans who love college basketball almost as much as we do. So, this morning, I clicked on over to Inside Carolina to see how the Tar Heels were doing after Saturday, and for the most part, they were gracious in defeat, praising Kentucky for a dominant performance; however, there were a few threads so riddled with ignorance and denial that I literally LOLed. Here are my top five favorites:
This thread was started before the game, but isn’t it nice to look back and smile at? There were indeed some shooting woes prior to Saturday, but the Cats showed just how scary they can be when the shots are falling, making 56.3% from the field and a season-best 46.7% (7-15) from the three-point line.
In case you forgot, UNC’s Desmond Hubert may have had one of the worst free throw attempts in history. This thread is just funny.
Too cautious to agree, but I see you there bold statement from a rival fan.
For UK fans who have ever lived in North Carolina, this is the most beautiful phrase ever.
The definition of irony.
