"What I remember most about that game was that we were a powerhouse. Duke was a powerhouse, and the Kentucky team was a very well-coached team that had some local Kentucky kids on the team. No one kind of expected them to be there ... they were the underdog, we were the favorites. I think that's why it touches such a part [of fans' emotions]."Christian Laettner, once again showing his keen insights into the human condition. Because there's nothing America likes more than seeing the plucky underdog stepped on by an utter prick.
A column on his success at ASU, after beating his instate rival for the fourth straight time. That's all Wolfpack fans ever wanted, right? (Sendek is 50-39 at ASU. Sidney Lowe is 49-42.)
I like that a) this is breaking news the Associated Press felt necessary to push over the wire and b) no matter how many luxuries they've put on the light poles out there they still haven't gotten around to antibiotics.

"(The rivalry is between) the best program in the world vs. a program that is trying to be Carolina. It's a wannabe program. They want to be the Tar Heels. They realize after 20-some years, you can't do that. It's never going to happen."George Karl, neatly summarizing Duke. (The debate with Jones on academics is also interesting, since it's harder to get into UNC from out of state than it is UNJ-D.)
Why wait until Wednesday? It already happened Monday night in Chapel Hill. Jessica Breland's 23 rebounds and the team's 64 percent shooting is just scary good.
What? Allow me my moment of new media / Web 2.0 / whatever this is.
How UNC lost a defensive back to LSU through a coaches grippingly interesting spiel.
I answer questions for Tomahawk nation. Surprisingly, cheese and wine do not come up.
