Top Gun Quote Guide For The Carrier Classic

New, 17 comments

Since UNC will be playing a game on the deck of an aircraft carrier it is only appropriate that we make extensive use of Top Gun quotes during the game. Here is your comprehensive guide.

Dexter Strickland goes coast to coast for a basket: "I feel the need, the need for speed"

John Henson blocks a shot: "Negative Ghost Rider the pattern in full." (hat tip: @SamWalkerOBX)

A player attempts to make a play, fails and turns the ball over: "Son, your ego's writing checks your body can't cash"

Player at the free throw line holding the ball: "Talk to me Goose"

Missed dunk: "You know on the first one I crashed and burned"

Shots of sweaty players on the bench: "Slider, you stink"

Pull up three pointer on the break: "Hit the brakes and he'll fly right by"

Roy Williams chewing out the team at any point: "What you should have done was land your plane. You don't own that plane the taxpayers do!"

Random points during the game starting singing: "You've lost that loving feeling!"

Kendall Marshall makes a ridiculous pass: "Great balls of fire!"

Any made three: "Splash <insert number>"

Bad offensive or defensive set: "The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid."

For whoever loses: "The plaque for the alternates is down in the ladies room. "

Kendall Marshall on a 3-on-1 break: "This is what I call a target-rich environment"
