    As the new leader of this team, I would like to see him get in All-American James Michael McAdoo's face sometime and scream "CATCH THE DAMM BALL!!!!!!"

    (Just kiddin' JMM. Love ya, big guy.)

    It was close to this same time 2 years ago when Roy replaced Larry WithDrew II Drew with K-Butter. Roy's loyalty to his upperclassmen and WithDrew II's defense kept him in it, until Roy had no choice but to replace his un-talented "ace".

    Butter then led the Heels to the Elite 8 for two straight years.

    I see this same potential in TJ Harrison.

    Agreed, Hokie. Sometimes, it takes a while to id your best lineup when you're replacing players. It's a process & coaches have to keep trying things until they id the right fit (chemistry). The good coaches will figure stuff out & get things back on track. In defense of UNC, look at who they lost last season. There are going to be "growing pains" when you take a hit like that.

    HB, TZ, JH, & KM accounted for 55.2 ppg last season (81.3 ppg as a team) & KM averaged 9.8 apg (17.3 apg as a team) That's a lot to replace, no matter who you are. IMO

    I'm just happy he has finally made the right choice with PJ. Should of been done months ago. This is not an inside dominate team, and no way we should of been trying to play like it was. Play to your strengths which is the smaller lineup this season.

    UNC has had only one bad coach. Matt couldn't cut it. As long as UNC can recruit all of those AA's, Roy can continue onward.

    Funny how the wusspackers initiate this MOWRONIC thread, then run with their tails tucked after getting bytch slapped by Tar Heel fans who have more basketball knowledge in our pinkies than they have over all, LOL.

    They'd better worry more about how a Va Tech team took them to OT at home, the same Va Tech team they mocked UNC for having to beat in OT at home.

    They'd better worry more about whether Gott is eying any of his players' girlfriends, as he's been PROVEN to have that wandering eye, LOL.

    They'd better be more concerned that their team has NO CHEMISTRY, Calvin is a DIVA, and they will implode and possibly miss the NCAA's they were "supposed to win", LOL.

    They'd better worry that 2 of their "one and dones" will probably leave after this season, along with Richard Foul, Scott "shoots bricks" Woods, and most assuredly surly Calvin, LOL.

    They'd better worry that they missed their best chance in DECADES to win the ACC in any shape or form, while Big Brother UNC has already reloaded for next year while having just as good a season as this "can't miss" state college team has had, LOL.

    Enjoy the ride while you have it, woofies, cuz it's very short lived and soon you'll be back where we all know you belong. You have too much on your minds to worry about the lineup Roy puts on the floor, until next Saturday anyway.

    I totally hate this one Battling. Duke will grow from this one.

    Just curious as to why you haven't figured out State's problems dating back to 1989? Thanks!

    If you know Roy, then you know that he is stubborn. He knew what needed to be done all year long. We do not know what goes on in practice, so I am sure that he had his reasons for not making the change until now.

    GP, libertard LOVES Roy. He's propositioned him for many dates and meetups at hotels with hourly rates. You're never going to get him to even think something remotely bad about Roy. It would just crush his whole world.

    Another reason this is such a typical ABC'er thread:

    Back in December, you ABC'ers were telling us that TJ Harrison was a "cancer in the locker-room" and was a terrible player who would be kicked off the team by January because of his attitude.

    Suddenly he's a great player, and we should be mad at our coach for not playing him more.

    Can't you ABC'ers make up your minds?

    I am being honest, I'm more than happy to let our Hall of Fame coach make those calls.

    All day, every day.

    (If I were you, I'd be way more concerned about my team being 1-18 against such a "bad coach".)

    Exactly my point. he's a "Hall of Fame" coach so why did he not have this figured out earlier? It was so obvious, even to this "anonymous ABCer". He's your best player, and he's just now getting some respect. Be honest, you know this move should have been done waaaaaaaayyy sooner.

  • Lux Libertas Feb 16, 2013

    We're happy to let our Hall of Fame coach make those decisions, not anonymous ABCers on the internet.

    Thanks so much.

    If he wants to make another lineup change..or none at all......we'll be sure to let ya know.

    Thanks again.

    Really? Hairston is just now starting to get this much playing time? As a state fan, I've been saying since the very beginning of the year that this kid needed to be starting every game and playing 35 minutes. Why did they just now figure out this lineup? I'd be mad if I was a UNC fan.....think about how different this season could look right now if Roy had just let Hairston play more, and to his strength?
