Sure, in terms of stage presence, he may offer all the emotion, theatrics and general appeal of a Tar Heel tailgate — but at least he’s putting himself out there. Right?
And yeah, he might have been slightly out of key for a few bars there, but that’s par for the course around Chapel Hill these days, isn’t it? All kidding aside, though, it’s clear the man’s a music lover, and no one could fault him for that.
Seriously, just when we thought Holden’s Pit performance of Thriller would stand — ironically — as the single piece of evidence demonstrating that life indeed exists in the Chancellor’s body, he pops up shredding to this Chuck Berry classic. Bravo!
Ok, so those who are not ACC fans watching probably feel like this is shocking. However, the only thing shocking to me is that the player(who wandered from the 3 point line to half court without dribbling) wasn’t wearing Duke blue. We see this display of “keen eyes” year in and year out in the ACC. I must say though, this is extreme, even for the ACC. PIVOT!
The Butkus Award released it’s list of finalists today. One glaring issue I see is the lack of Nate Irving. I know, I know, I’m an NC State fan and therefore am subjected to bias. However, the stats just don’t add up on this one? You’ll see below that Nate should be the second favorite to win and definitely in the top 5.
Ahhh. It seems like only yesterday that Frumpzilla was busy writing its first ever UNC-Duke themed post. 2 1/2 years (and several unplanned, unannounced sabbaticals) later, do you think those Blue Devils over in Durham would pass up an opportunity to stick it to their powder blue nemeses? Of course not!
I’d heard about the Dukies starting the above chant during their win over Colgate, but — thanks to Fromthebarn.org — the above clip is the first chance I’ve had to actually see it. If only Friday’s loss to Minnesota had ended the Heels’ weekend woes.
Saturday saw things go from bad to worse in Chapel Hill as Carolina dropped a heartbreaker to bitter rival N.C. State. Fortunately, this particular game was played with that pesky oblong ball so many UNC faithful seem to find passion for at only the most opportune times. No big deal. After all, at least the 8th ranked basketball team was there to redeem an otherwise pitiful 72-hour stretch by beating Vanderbilt on Sunday, right?
Wrong. On the heels of all-world Freshman Harrison Barnes now going 4 of 24 from the floor in his last two games, the Commodores topped Carolina 72-65 Sunday night in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The trip home from San Juan will surely be a long one for Roy’s boys, but hosting UNC-Asheville on Tuesday should help restore some semblance of hope on the Hill prior to the Heels’ next encounter with that oblong ball — Duke, in Durham, on Saturday.
Ironically, something tells me there won’t be much — if any — video evidence of a classic fan rivalry sourced from that encounter.
As fate would have it, Frumpzilla has come across some rather interesting photos of Lee Fowler, NC State’s much maligned athletic director, in his off season activities…which, based on the success (or lack thereof) of his tenure, may or may not be year round.
Oh, and dear, dear Frumpsters, we have several more for you after the jump…
If the ship's going down, Lee Fowler is ready. If only State fans could get their hands around his neck...
Own it, Lee...f*cking own it with that power stance! Live it, live it!
No question that this season has shown mass improvement from the previous two in terms of intensity, hustle and pride exhibited by the Pack, however that has seldom resulted in the full 40 minutes needed to beat a quality opponent….until last night. The Pack was focused and aggressive from start to finish. NC STATE played as if they believed they were the better team and it showed. [...]
So I realize that I’m a few days late with this post but if you haven’t noticed, we’ve taken some time away from the site and come back with some aesthetic changes! All things considered, I believe this is a better late than never situation. You see, I hate UNC Chapel Hell with all my being. I feel they have an arrogance about them that just frustrates the crap out of me….words cannot describe the hatred. This is why I was so happy when this arrogance was put on a pedestal for all the nation to see this past weekend.
During a blowout win for Roy Williams’ basketball team against lowly Presbyterian College, the almighty coach had an opposing fan removed from the premesis for yelling at one of his players during a free throw. I know what you’re thinking, that kind of penalty must have been earned by yelling a vulgar or (even worse)racist comment at a player during a key moment in the game. That would’ve been a non-story. Instead, all this fan did was yell “Hey Deon, don’t miss it!” to Deon Thompson during a free throw with 6:45 left to play in a 103-64 drumming. The free throw was made and Roy turns to the fan and says, “Why don’t you shut up! Yeah, I’m talking to you!”. He then gets the attention of his rent-a-cops and motions towards the fan, who is then dragged from his seat without a chance to find out why or show his ticket to the henchmen.
In an instance of EXTREME IRONY, Coach Williams said after the game “Let’s don’t make it a bigger thing than it is. But I just don’t think anybody should yell negative things toward our players (when) you come in on our tickets to watch our game.” So if we take him at his word, no fan should ever cheer against his team when you’re in the dean dome, otherwise you will be removed. With this logic I hope every true blue douche-nozzle that shouts at the opposing team during away games gets dragged out kicking and screaming.
To make matters worse for this Presby fan, unc’s SID tried to spin the situation in typical fashion by defacing his name and claiming he was intoxicated and in the wrong seat. However the fan was later interviewed and disputed both claims. I hope this guy is lawyered up or better yet, I hope every opposing ACC team finds a way to get him a ticket behind unc’s bench this season to continue this drama.
Click the Frump to see video of this ENTIRE incident as well as hitler’s roy’s press conference after the game. As a bonus, there’s also a video of hilarity ensuing after a unc loss to Maryland. You’ll see crying and disappointment, and if you listen closely, you’ll even hear a unc fan yelling “Go Back to the Ghetto!!” to one of the Maryland players. I guess that’s alright though since it wasn’t directed at one of roy’s players.
