A quick technical note. It would seem this blog has grown enough that the current web hosting no longer handles high traffic periods, such as game threads, as well as I had hoped. I have been working over the course of several weeks to resolve these issues but so far have only seen mixed results. Please be aware the site may be slow or unresponsive this evening during the course of the game and afterwards.
The ideal start to this game would be Harrison Barnes doing exactly what he did last year when the Heels played NC State in Chapel Hill. At any rate, I expect a good game and a solid test for the first game played without Dexter Strickland.
Comments if you have 'em.
