’Canes fire Peter Laviolette

Posted By on Wed, Dec 3, 2008 at 10:29 AM

Press conference announced for 11:30 this morning at the RBC Center. Check back later today for more from Kate Shefte. A week ago, Kate speculated about the possibility of a coaching change in the near future. 12:08 PM UPDATE: The new coach is... the old coach, Paul Maurice, the 41-year-old who coached the squad to 268 wins between 1995 and 2003....

"Rod the Bod's" play has been a little...odd.

Posted By on Wed, Dec 3, 2008 at 1:06 AM

Okay, first of all… Patrick Eaves fights? Did anyone know he could do that? Now, onto more serious matters. Although they’re currently hanging onto the final playoff spot in the east by a thread and only three points behind the division-leading Washington Capitals, (and let’s face it, that’s because the division is weak again this year and the Capitals have been decimated by injuries) the Hurricanes have been wildly inconsistent this year, beating hot teams such as Ottawa (at the time) only to turn around and drop two to the Thrashers. Everyone has been getting on Eric Staal’s case for...

College football news: State's Wilson honored, Tar Heels going to Charlotte!

Posted By on Tue, Dec 2, 2008 at 4:30 PM

  N.C. State's freshman quarterback Russell Wilson began the season by getting knocked out with a concussion. It's been all gravy ever since. Yesterday, he became the first freshman quarterback named to the ACC's all-conference team. Today, he was named rookie of the year. Among his signal accomplishments: He passed for 1,769 yards and led the league in touchdown passes and passing efficiency. Most spectacularly, he threw only one interception all year, and none in the past eight games and 226 passes. Grayson Currin recently posted an appreciation. And from Chapel Hill comes the news that the Tar Heels,...

Notes from a blowout

Posted By on Tue, Dec 2, 2008 at 12:01 AM

A friend wasn't using his ticket to last night's UNC v. UNC-Asheville game, so I took it and went. I don't want to repeat the excellent overall account from Harrington already on our blog, so a few notes from the Dean Dome: 1. It's amazing how easy the Heels made beating a team by 68 points look. (That margin was a Roy Williams-era record, by the way.) Carolina didn't appear to burn even half its game fuel -- and that was without Tyler Hansbrough and Marcus Ginyard. Partway through the rather somnolent first half, I glanced at the scoreboard....

Tar Heels perform castration on Bulldogs

Posted By on Mon, Dec 1, 2008 at 1:42 PM

North Carolina's basketball team didn't show much mercy to UNC-Asheville, sending the Bulldogs hobbling back to Roy Williams' hometown after a 116-48 shellacking on Sunday night in Chapel Hill. Williams may have cultivated his love of Coca-Cola as a boy in Asheville, but the Bulldogs strictly were New Coke on this evening. Even without superstar Tyler Hansbrough, who sat out for precautionary reasons while he continues to mend from shin and ankle injuries, the Tar Heels simply were too talented for their in-state counterparts. After perhaps two minutes of sloppy play, UNC began to force a frenetic pace and take...
