Considering I wasn’t in the room when the decision was made to hold Mustafa Greene out of practices recently, chalk this up to speculation. However, knowing Tom O’Brien and his disciplinary history, it’s not hard to connect the dots when you see the public record below. [...]
This undertaking, while in a similar vein, isn’t necessarily intended as a definitive ranking of select college basketball programs from ‘00/’01 – ‘09/’10. We basically just thought it would be interesting to see how college basketball programs would stack up when plotting out each’s NCAA Tournament performance over the course of a decade.
More than anything, we wanted this to be fun. If nothing else, you might learn a thing or two about NCAA Tournament history from 2000 through 2010 – at least quantitatively — so make the jump to see how the NCAA Tournament of the 2000′s plays out…
B Diddy’s a big Canes fan. Me, I could take ‘em or leave ‘em, but I certainly don’t say that callously.
Don’t harbor any ill will towards Frump’s hometown team — North Carolina’s only major professional sports franchise east of Charlotte — it’s simply a matter of my inability, try as I might, to get into hockey.
I just find it utterly uncompelling, honestly, but to each their own.
Unfortunately, the apathetic ignorance highlighted by our local NBC affiliate’s questions on “the big game this weekend” — let alone the Hurricanes franchise itself — suggests I may not be the only Raleigh resident struggling to find a place for hockey in his heart.
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.
Don’t you get tired of talking heads, print journalists, and anyone that just happened to have learned some HTML over a holiday weekend a few years ago (ahem, Ciaran) ramming their college football analysis down your throats on a weekly basis? Sure, we all do.
Wouldn’t it be nice if someone just compiled some allegedly intriguing facts about an upcoming match-up, and then let YOU decide what to make of them? Well, here’s an opportunity to find out — or just gather some tidbits to throw out for discussion at your Saturday morning tailgate — after the jump…
Today was NCSU Athletic Director Lee Fowler’s last day in office and we at Frumpzilla would like to bid him farewell. Just as his card reads(presumably from his daughter), “May you prosper in all that you do, wherever you turn”. As long as that isn’t in Raleigh, because let’s face it, Yow is the time for a change.
(I really just wanted an excuse to post this picture that I find quite funny.)
For the past ten years, one man has has reigned over NC State athletics. This man, at times, has been both myth and legend. One thing he has not been is effective. This man is @Lee_Folwer. Today, Folwer steps down from his post and moves on to the next step in his life. Not before sitting down with us in the Frumpzilla offices(read: the internet).
You’ve all enjoyed his quips and thoughts on Twitter, however we are both excited and saddened to bring you his final interview ever. It wasn’t cheap (who needs profit anyways?), but at least we are now familiar with the ins-and-outs of wiring money to the Cayman Islands. After the Frump is the entire transcript of @Lee_Folwer’s last interview.
***Update: For those that may be wondering, the Lee Folwer interview has been delayed. Mr. Folwer is stalling on us, allegedly waiting on the check to clear. We think he’s just a bit nervous about answering the tough questions. Either way, the interview will definitely be up this week. So stay tuned!***
And we’re hoping some of our readers would like to contribute. We can’t really go into what kind of strings had to be pulled to get this gig, but just know that, come Monday morning, the entire Frumpzilla staff is rolling out a full frontal assault; dusting every crevice, finely combing every former mustache hair, of the genius that is Lee Folwer.
Now, we’ve obviously got several questions lined up for Mr. Folwer, but we could always use some more. So, if you’ve got something you’d like to ask Lee, send us an email or hit us up on Twitter and/or Facebook. We’ll do our best to make sure your voice is heard!
