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.
2 years ago on Marshall Takes His Game to NBA Rivers Takes his Name
@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.
I guess the only solace in Jordans pick is that he wanted Phil Jackson to take over the Bulls.

@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.
2 years, 1 month ago on Lunchtime Poll: Will Bryn Renner Adjust to Fedoras Spread?
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.

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.

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.

2 years, 2 months ago on KIH Radio: UNC Tar Heels Saturday Morning Conversation
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......
2 years, 2 months ago on UNC Basketball Recruiting: Do the Heels Need a PG in 2014?
We enjoy having Matt Hamm join us for recruiting updates. We do not follow the recruiting as closely because we analyze classes three years later as opposed to signing day. It is good to know who will be joining teams in the fall.
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.

2 years, 2 months ago on UNC Tar Heel Fans: Join In On The Discussion With Keeping It Heel
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.

2 years, 2 months ago on UNC Basketball: Hubert Davis is the Perfect Addition to Tar Heels Staff
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.

2 years, 3 months ago on Why Alex Oriakhi Shouldn't be Allowed to Visit Kentucky or Missouri
@KIH Matt Of course its academic reasons because of shambles UCONN is under with graduation rates. Duke and UNC recruit one and dne, but the place Roy and K avoid are handlers like John Wall had. Calipari would put up with them and Roy will not spak with "handlers" I have first hand knowledge of the Wall situation, and that would worry me more than any other recruit UK has had. I hope Calipari stayed away from some of those guys around Wall.
@KIH Matt With UCONN facing sanctions for low graduation rates I believe the sit out rule will not apply nor will he have to choose a school without the same program like Justin knox did.

@MichaelParker I am in agreement that Calipari works the system, and he would recruit well in any situation. The UK angle brings readers, and possibly that is what Matt is doing with the Calipari mentions. The fact remains he has lost two final fours to sanctions and that brings negative attention.
Matt and i disagree vehemently about college basketball being less exciting than college baseball. In basketball there are two NBA draft rounds, and baseball has like 20 thousand plus several farm system layers. You cannot compare college baseball and basketball.

I know its a WCU joke usually said by App State fans....
Okay folks lets be real here. Harrison Barnes was a very good player at UNC. He average 17 ppg, and yes he underperformed without Kendall Marshall, but this kid is not a villain who used UNC. He was interested in the business school and is just using things he learned to create his own brand. He is doing the same thing many of us are doing. Trying to make money off of our brand. Most of us here are blogging for our hobby, but if you told me i could cash a check each month you can bet your butt I would be at the Bank everytime.
Harrison Barnes is a Tar Heel, and we are just upset that next year will be a rebuilding year as opposed to another title run.
The Michigan example is not the same. Renner is athletic and can run enough. Fedora's QB doesn't run all the time like Rodriguez's. The hype around Williams is being brought to create a controversy that isn't there. Larry isnt stupid. Renner will start game one.
2 years, 3 months ago on UNC Football: Does Bryn Renner Really Have Something To Worry About?
1. The answer is no. Renner three for 3000 yards and had a 3/1 interception rate. He ran this offense in high school as did Williams.
