    Line one of the application form for the next UNC chancellor will be:

    1. Can you keep a secret?

    doesn't "do" application forms for Chancellor, Derpy.

    When we want you to know who's in the mix...we'll be sure and let you know.

    I see that some fans from UNC have risen up tonight. Fans. I see how some UNC graduates have taken the lessor road of late. I still wish the best for UNC to hire someone outside this system. I also would like for UNC to re-visit the findings of our former Governor Jim Martin. He made it even worse for UNC. No way he should have lead any committee for UNC. This is a huge black eye for UNC. The media has run with this one. I hope that the total picture will come to the fore soon. UNC gave this job to a former Governor. Pitiful thinking.

    He's not much when it comes down to having some ballzzs

    Ah yes but it certainly takes "ballzzs" to hide behind a computer screen and spout off about topics on which you know so very little, huh? What a joke.

    You don't even know where the Triad is...why should people put any stock in what you say about Holden Thorp?

    Never played anthing except a chess game probably.

    ..........and rubik's cube

    That was Thorp's claim to fame when he was a youngster. He didn't do anything at UNC except fire Davis and John Blake after the BOG fired down on his ar... He looked the other way when it came down to the esteemed AA Studies program. He was in charge of this program before he became the esteemed Chancellor. He's not much when it comes down to having some ballzzs. Wishing him the best away from UNC. He's still a highly intelligent person, but it didn't do him much good after bowing out at UNC. He simply doesn't have the "stuff" to deliver.

    Whatever you can do to take your minds off of The Taproot's curb-stomping of Ga. Tech on the road tonight, is fine with us.

    Doesn't it feel great to be right?

    — Posted by KT Returns

    You damm right. I have been kind to Holden Thorp. He got this job because of huge contributors from his family. Maybe when he's 60 he will grow a pair. Like you stated earlier, he hasn't shown much yet. Courage begins when you are raised up. He was a little rich kid with his toys of the day. Never played anthing except a chess game probably. He didn't have the intestional fortitude to handle this job. His rubic cube deal is his fame.

    I hope that UNC will go totally away from the University and hire someone without all of this nepotism.

    I have changed my attitude about UNC lately because of some fans from UNC. They claim this or that... I doubt most never darkened the doors of the school house gate at UNC nor ANY other school. Still, they know more about sports than some of us that played and coached. They write and attract those just like themselves.
