I have been knee deep in patching servers in preparation for the new Daylight Savings Time date. So this will be short.
I think UNC can show some serious intentions about winning the national championship by winning the next three games in decisive fashion. Maryland is a hot team right now and UNC has shown it can rise to the challenge on the road. UNC follows this game with a trip to Atlanta before hosting Duke. Much like the 2005 team which also faced a huge battle at College Park, UNC can definitely make a statement here with a win. Maryland likes to press and has great guard play, something that has given UNC fits this season.
Also, today is my birthday and since I have been alive UNC is 5-2 on my birthday including a win over NC State the day I was born. The only two losses came under Matt Doherty...let's never speak of them again.
