    LOL!

    We can have a good baseball season if the team plays up to their capabilities. I simply posted a first for UNC with the preseason poll from baseball America. I'm a Tar Heel fan and this is the first time ever we have been ranked #1 in that preseason poll.

    I apologize, Ligg, but I can't hear you over all the chest-thumping your group is hypocritally doing over their team that has yet to play.

    I'm sorry KT that our #1 national ranking hurts you so.

    When somebody hurls insults (calling them a wine and cheese crowd) and saying they don't come out to see a quality product, yes that is indicative of a coach not liking the fans.

    Deflect all you want.

    Is that all you got KT? Fox is upset with the crowd not being loud enough. LOL

    that's a far cry from "Fox doesn't like your fans"

    Ah breaking out with the ad hominem attacks when faced with the truth. Tsk Tsk Ligg. I thought you had a little more intelligence than that. Proof of my claim for any other doubters:

    I'd LOVE to see the guys win one for Fox - he is a terrific coach, and they've come so close - hope this is their year.

    I don't think she can see the difference because she is blinded due to affliction with the Red Cranial Encephalitis. When you have not been a perenical contender in college sports like the Heels, it's hard to see "Pack Overhype" and easy to fall into the trap poor Time Felon did. We all warned them to learn how to be a frontrunner but they went on ahead and purchased the trophy before the season ever started.

    I could've sworn he was talking about "Pre-season" rankings, and that UM was still WITH the services of their starting PG

    Try and keep up, chubs!

    Ummm......everyone and anyone who knows anything about college basketball knows States preseason ranking was a joke! We just got a kick out of it more than anything. Do the time, win some big games and build a tradition and then get back with me.

    Their best team in decades will have a worse record than UNC after tonight.

    How sad is that?

    I'd really like some links on this site to state fans doing that. I've repeatedly asked for them, but none of you tartrolls can seem to come up with one. Now I saw the media singing our praises, but all I saw on here was cautious optimism.

    Not really. The only thing I see is a bunch of chest thumping about a team that hasn't even played a single game.

  • FilPhord Feb 7, 2013

    Big difference in the way state basketball fans acted. They were already planning the parade and putting the last few stitches on the banner before the wheels came off.

    that's because state has not done anything in bball the last 30 yrs. the HEELS have been to the cws 5 of the last 7. see the differnce.

    you should have been happy.

    The Diamond Heels should do well this season and bring Fox a Title. That man deserves it.

    No one "complained"...we were MOCKING you.

    "Same old state college" we all said.

    Turns out we were right on the money, as per usual, as you will get NO WHERE CLOSE to #6 again this season, or next.

    LOL.

  • KT Returns Feb 7, 2013

    Maybe it was a dream, but I recall lots of kerlina fans complaining when we were happy about being preseason #6 in basketball. Hypocrite much, guys?

  • DooksucksV3 Feb 7, 2013

    Hopefully they live up to the billing.

    Go Heels and get you one coach Fox!
