Carolina 53, Duke 69


You can't win 'em all, and we're just not very good this year. Add to that that d00que played its best and we...well...didn't.

You win some, you lose some.

The most annoying thing about it is that, last year, when we were the vastly superior team, the refs flat-out handed them a win with four abominably terrible calls in a row in the final minutes of the game in CH.  In a somewhat more just possible world, we might have gotten similar consideration... I'd have felt bad about a dirty win..but justice would, in some sense, have been done. And I can guarantee that nobody from the Carolina bench would have cursed at the crowd in celebration, as the d00kies did last year... Ah well. Didn't work out that way.

But it's not good to stew about such things. That first game from last year was a fluke from hell, and we'll never have it made up to us. Might as well forget it and move on. One hates to lose to Captain Ratface and the kids from Camp Mohawk... But it's bound to happen every now and then. Grumble.

On the bright side, at least this is a much, much less hateable d00que team than last year's. Swapping out the truly loathsome Rivers kid--who literally traveled every single bloody time he touched the ball, and yet was basically never called for it--and adding the seemingly perfectly decent Sulaimon, has made them significantly less...well...dookish.

Oh and: this was the first game Roy has dropped on Senior Night as head coach. That's especially impressive given that he owns Senior Night at Hanbrough Indoor Stadium.


Disappointing game. '

Tough year.

Go Heels.
