UNC needs to stop the stupid free food if they score 100 promotion

...and Julius Hodge would not have to bum as many quarters on the corner. Sounds like everyone's grads are winners.

There is NOTHING in Daddy Emeritus' boy's world that isn't dominated by The Flagship. Completely and utterly dominated.

If UNC does have such a promotion this season, whatever restaurant sponsors it can rest easy: there is no way in hell this year's nearly-talentless roster puts up 100 points, even against its weakest out-of-conference opponent.
However, if the NY Knicks were running this promotion, they'd be the highest-scoring team in the NBA. Raymond Felton would average 50 pts/game until he ballooned up to Elvis-esque proportions and had a stroke.

This is just another in a long line of posts by 903 that shows his total obsession with everything UNC. This guy is a total waste. He desperately needs a life.

Exactly what does this and a Bulls player having a lack of self control have to do with UNC?
Did the guy buy Lance Thomas some bling after the game as well?

DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday that he spoke to center Joakim Noah about his decision to shoot a 3-pointer against the Orlando Magic just to try to win Big Macs for fans at the United Center.
The Bulls have a promotion through which fans can get a free Big Mac if the Bulls score 100 points in a home win. The Bulls won 99-93 as Noah missed his 3 with 3.8 seconds left.
"I talked to him about it, but I'm going to keep that private," Thibodeau said after Wednesday's practice.
It's not the first time the promotion has made headlines. Kirk Hinrich was booed after a game despite leading the Bulls to victory, and even Derrick Rose said he felt bad after his missed free throws cost the fans a free burger.
Noah made one of two free throws with 23 seconds left to make it 99-93, and Hinrich missed two with 10 seconds left.
"I got caught up in the moment," Noah admitted after the game.
Despite the fact the Bulls had won, many fans booed the team as the final buzzer sounded.
"I regret it a little bit," Noah said. "It wasn't a good shot.
"You have to respect the game because you never know what can happen in a game. I just got caught up in the moment and I was trying to get the people a Big Mac. They really wanted a Big Mac (judging by how loud the crowd was getting) and I felt like, not only did I take the shot and miss the shot, we didn't even get the Big Mac. Next time, I won't take that 3-pointer."
