Know Your Enemy: North Carolina Tarheels

It's not easy to make fun of the Tarheels with all of their history and their good reputation. But I sure as hell will give it my all.

Did anybody catch that game last night? I heard it was pretty good.

North Carolina Tarheels:
Location-Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Enrollment- 30,000
Famous Alumni- Michael Jeffery Jordan (did not graduate), Dan Cortese, Rick Fox, Andy Griffith, President James K. Polk, and Julius Peppers (did not graduate).
School Motto- "If you mention Duke one more time I'm going to kill you."
Everything you need to Know about UNC- Petey Pablo can tell you-

Things they Tell Recruits-
  • "Look, if you want prestigious, go to Duke. If you want flash and an NBA atmosphere, go to Kentucky. If you want Roy Williams crying every time somebody sneezes at him, then come here."
  • "Matt Daughtery era? What's that? Yes he played here but he never coached here. (nervous laugh)."
  • "I promise you that it's only our football players that cheat and get kicked off the team."
  • "Our most popular class is one where we teach basketball players to whine and throw temper tantrums like Rasheed Wallace used to do."
  • "Michael Jordan played here." (There is nothing funny about that)

Most Famous Sports Moment-Arguably the most popular player in the history of the program is the hateable Tyler Hansbrough. Here is a little hate montage dedicated to him. Focus on the bloddy nose.

Reasons why Kentucky will beat them to make it to the Final Four-

  • Jorts has become just as good of a player as Tyler Zeller.
  • Harrison Barnes meet DeAndre Liggins.
  • Brandon Knight LOVES it in clutch time.
  • The Cats are playing some of their best defense of the season right now. Defense wins championships.
  • The Cats are undefeated in revenge games this season.
  • We got that swagger of a team that just beat the #1 team in the whole country.
  • We turned it up to 11 on the blocks. 11.

No doubt this game is what every college basketball fan dreams of. Two powerhouse, storied programs battling each other for the right to go to the Final Four. The tip off is 5:05 p.m. tomorrow night. Expect Newark to be on fire.

This is the second year in a row the Cats have made it to the Elite Eight and join Butler as the only two teams from last year's bracket to do so. This team plays great team basketball and they don't quit. I loved last year's team with all of my heart, but this 2011 version of the Cats are meshing and playing their best basketball at the right time.

Go Cats. #revenge
