Re: “The bicycle thief: After being caught with stolen bikes, Christian Browne wants back into Raleigh's cycling scene

This is a joke, right? I almost thought Grayson Currin wrote this POS article.

Re: “Biking the Triangle: Where & When

Good list, but needs updating; Benelux has since relocated to Cameron Village on Oberlin Road. Luna Chix, a women's only cycling group, also meets on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6:00 and they alternate between Forest View Elementary and Mapleview Farms. Finally, I agree that CBC deserves a mention--great group!

Re: “Biking the Triangle: Where & When

This is a great list. But it *is* somewhat of a moving target. Team CBC has already spoken up. As far as the Tarwheels, I am no longer the primary contact, but I would be sure to direct people to the right contact. I am now also affiliated with the Bicycle Alliance of Chapel Hill, a group similar the the Carrboro Bicycle Coalition (CBC) , but operating in Chapel Hill.
My point is this: This is a great list, and I thank your for publishing it, these are all good groups and resources. But maybe, to make it even more awesome, you need to work out a scheme to make it easier, and perhaps more efficient for all the groups, rides etc.. you list to help YOU keep it up to date.

Oh. and yeah, a big shout out to Oaks and spokes, who has nailed it for another 10 days bike extravaganza. If I lived in Raleigh, I'd have been to nearly every one of their events!

Re: “A brief history of the ACC Tournament—and how television and money are killing our good basketball

Not quite an unqualified rant bemoaning the demise of a " Tobacco Road " alignment. Our schools are much more prominent nationally in professional and academic areas as well as athletic dimensions .

I love how former BIG EAST teams kick all the ACC ass.

Interesting piece, it really resonates with Jeff Currie's essay in this story on fans of tobacco road: http://www.bitandgrain.com/

Re: “A brief history of the ACC Tournament—and how television and money are killing our good basketball

Yeah, the ACC survives in name only. So? Same could be said of most conferences. Times change. People in NC should leave the 1960s-1980s behind. The three Triangle schools notwithstanding, without expansion the ACC would have been squeezed into the insignificance of the Atlantic 10 or the Big East.

By the way, since joining the ACC my alma mater Georgia Tech has cracked the football AP Top Ten 3 times and has made it to the Sweet Sixteen 6 times. Don't tell me that expansion has watered down the conference.

Re: “An offensive pick for a defensive coach at UNC

The job title that accompanies my previous comment is out of date. I have updated my INDY profile.

Re: “An offensive pick for a defensive coach at UNC

Nice job, Curt. I always enjoy reading your work. However, I can't summon much outrage over Chizik and the Cam Newton affair. Even if Newton's father was handed $200,000 to ensure that his son went to Auburn, the fact remains that Newton played for far less than he is worth.

The scandal isn't the "cheating." The scandal is what's legal: the continued exploitation of talented young athletes by the NCAA.

Good article. Sums up the nation's collective "wtf" and "smh".

Re: “An offensive pick for a defensive coach at UNC

Great job.
It's obvious that if the tarholes had done half as much "vetting" and background investigation of Area-Code-216 Butch and his Black Santa, there likely never would have been Anchorman Austin's tweets, Jennifer and Greg's parking tix scam, etc,etc and they'd still be blissfully ignorant football "sleeping giants".

Re: “An offensive pick for a defensive coach at UNC

This is a great opinion piece, but it is just that: your opinion, which happens to be crap. Thankfully, no one reads these crap articles. You're welcome for the page-click.

Re: “An offensive pick for a defensive coach at UNC

Your article, like your view, is total bs.
Like some others in your profession, you prefer to publish innuendo rather than facts.
Too bad for you and too bad for your handful of readers.

Re: “Triangle soccer fans have a bevy of options

August, this article is part of our Fall Arts and Culture preview, which is why it doesn't mention big soccer events in the winter.

Re: “Triangle soccer fans have a bevy of options

You could have mentioned that the NCAA Men’s College Cup, 2014 Division I Men’s Soccer Championship, will be held at the WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC, on December 12 and 14.
