UNC: Tuesday's Tour of the Internet(s)

Posted by on Tue, Sep 1, 2009 at 2:47 PM

Every Tuesday while I idle between classes and procrastinate leafing through my AP Style book or other things journalism students believe justify a degree, I'll scout the Internet (or Internets if you're one of those weird people) for UNC related articles.

I consider this more time worthy than what my neighbor in the student union is doing:  passed out with a sandwich slowly drifting from her hand dangerously close to her chair.

So here we go:

  • Isiah Thomas apparently changed his tune, and FIU will indeed open the season in the Smith Center against the Tar Heels, the N&O's ACC Now reports. Thomas became agitated last week when UNC released its schedule and he discovered his first game will be a blowout, even though the Golden Panthers thought they would be instead playing Ohio State -- a team with fewer kinks to work out.  I can't help but think Thomas doesn't like UNC ... with the whole not passing to Michael Jordan thing in the NBA All-Star game.
  • The leading Tar Heel sports blog, Tar Heel Fan, has a breakdown of UNC's secondary for the upcoming season, including the big question of who will replace Trimane Goddard. Da'Norris Searcy earned the starting job after a highly praised preseason and even nabbed the punt return duties.
  • Adam Lucas breaks down the importance of season openers, throwing in some history of how UNC fared in certain opening games, which is always fun for you newbies to the UNC football world.  For Butch Davis' sake, let's hope UNC doesn't open the season similarly to the 2003 campaign.
  • Senior defensive end E.J. Wilson will run an audio blog for 1360 WCHL this season.  Wilson talks about campus, the locker room and the prospects of this season.  Wilson definitely has a future in journalism, especially radio, in life after football.  He's also gone on record saying the defense expects to be one of the best in the country.

That's it for now; I'm back to studying while the woman next to be tries to clean up her sandwich.  I hope her nap was worth it.
