Drew Davis enrolling at UNC says more about his character than words that can be spoken.  His father coaching at UNC should have nothing to do with him as a player.  If he rises through the ranks great, and if he doesn't he better challenge the defense every day from the scout team.  

 

He did play in a spread offense under Bill Renner  and is probably more suited for that offense than the one ran in Miami.

 @coltsguy510 That is good stuff, but I think athlete in this regard may be explosion off the drill getting their own shot.  Rivers has been better in that phase, but Kendall explodes off the drill to create shots for teammates.

 @TarHeelsFanRenn First thanks for commenting.  I think Rivers has potential to be very good. I did not think another year would really tell much more about Marshall.  If Rivers makes it through the rocky waters no pun intended then his career could be fantastic, but some guys go in the league not ready and never make it to the second contract regardless of who their daddy is.

 @maddog73 You are right. Renner looked crisper than I thought he would.  He will put up big numbers this fall.  this offense requires quick decision making as well as athleticism. A piece that gets overlooked more often than not by the experts who were shouting for Williams prior to the spring game.

I am not going to say never, but realistically each year there are about 10 teams that can win it all.  They usually reside in historical powerhouse football universities.  Having 85 scholarships has increased that field a little, but even with that the big boys still rule.  Think about some of the schools that have committed to football for years who have not won a title in the past 30 years.  

 

Never say never but competing for a conference title should be priority number 1. Wait beating NC State is one.

Thomas Robinson is a good player, but I want you to remember he did not even start until his junior season. Is he truly someone you are ready to roll the dice on with the second pick in the draft?  I cannot say that about anybody after Anthony Davis with confidence.  Whoever they select better not be a bust.

Haley has more opinions on this and the impact of paying athletes goes beyond his disgust for some of the actions by former Tar heels.  There are ways some of the players receive more money than I ever dreamed while i was in college.  

 

Debbie Keller who unfortunately later sued Coach Dorrance was the National Player of the Year for womens soccer, and told me she was not on a full ride her senior year because she gave some money bak in her scholarship to help land another top recruit.  This was routinely done in womens soccer the winning est program in the nation.

 

Steve Spurrier, college football and the rest of men's basketball say these things, but my example of above is what should never happen before anyone gets paid.  The baseball team that has been to how many CWS??? Receives 11 full scholarships to split amongst the team?  

 

Football and Basketball players should be grateful for what they receive, and the degree they get from their University.  That is if they graduate. Look at the number of big time football and basketball programs that do not graduate kids.   

 

I am all for assisting kids in need for family issues, but a slippery slope is being tossed out there and as a person becoming more jaded with sports each day this is an issue I will never support.

As long as he implements an attack type scheme fans will love him.  Torbush was nearly fired as DC for his bend dont break schemes until Mack made him change.  Fedora wants to be aggressive so I think that is what we will see.  No more 3 man rush on third down and 8.

i do not think what i think before i see Marcus Paige play a college game will mean anything, but if Paige can be serviceable as a Freshman and keep assist to TO ratio 2-1 or better then depending on match ups the tar Heels could go far.  I still want to see JMM develop because even though he made great strides at the end he still needs a counter move in the post.  Health of Strickland and McDonald is still a ? until we see them play. Will Hairston provide outside shooting and will Bullock develop into the NBA player we thought he would out of HS.

You can really point to one or two games each week in the NFL that are stellar.  By Thanksgiving half the games are irrelevant, and with college football the rivalry games make the last few weeks excellent.

The whole debate about the PG position is one where I cannot recall a title type team having two Point Guards or even a 1 and 1a.  In Roy's system the point guard sets the tone so whoever starts when both Paige and Britt are here one will get the majority of minutes.  Now if one can develop into a two guard the scenario changes, but with all positions there are only 40 minutes to distribute the playing time.

 

I think this years situation without KM injury was the ideal.  KM was the obvious floor general, but white was able to spell him without the team dropping off drastically.  Chemistry is always an issue and PGs who are talented rarely sit the bench happy.  Jeff McGinnis behind derrick Phelps was a prime example.  

 

Rarely do you have a Bobby Fraser......

Richard Howell should be able to hold his own if he can stay out of foul trouble.  Tyler Lewis can ball. The idea no one else would sign him is a little far fetched. He was in the Mcdonalds AA game and held his own against quality PGs including Marcus Paige one of those top 100 commits for UNC.  Remember NC State had Archie Miller who was about 5'10 who gave other elite PGs fits while playing for the pack.  Distributing the ball effectively is so undervalued.  Just remember when LDII was UNC point man and threw passes high, low and wide how inaffective the Tar heel offense was.  

As much as i dislike Wojo, he was pretty effective for Duke at 5'10.  you are looking at State's recruiting as if they are building a 1 and done title next season. It takes several years to build a program and Gottfried has gotten off to a fast start.

Duke beat Arizona 3/4 during the late nineties.  The location of the game was argued in 2004, but even I can stand up for the ACC and the Dookies in saying the wildcats did not own Duke.  in the season Arizona should have been title contenders in 1997 they lost 95-87 in Maui to the blue Devils. Bibby was awful that game.

I think par of PJ's issue was having to maximize his limited time. He took ill advised shots i think because he was trying to make something happen too much in his small playing time.  Some shooters need more PT to get a feel for the game. He started rushing his shot, and his confidence sunk.  Hopefully a great off season along with increased PT can get him back in form.

 

I also am not certain he ever got over that ankle injury in early December. Davis will have to work on his confidence as well as his shot.  He has all the tools to be really good.

This is a home run with both college basketball on a national scene and the Carolina Family. As much as we love Phil Ford and I for one hoped they hire him I can not argue against Davis.  Davis is part of the UNC family, and for college basketball it is similar as if Kirk Herbstreet left ESPN for Ohio state football.  Davis may not be as popular as Kirk, but there are similarities.  Davis was a tireless worker in the NBa and one of the best shooters I have ever seen.  His clinic he did in Chapel Hill in 1995 was one of the best coaching clinics I have been around, and it was geared for kids.  

 

Great hire Roy. In my opinion this trumps the Jeff Capel hire in Durham, but time will tell on the recruiting trail. Hopefully he goes head to head with rod strickland who is an ace recruiter for Calipari.
