Barnes has been big in the clutch in several North Carolina wins this year and none bigger than the shot he hit late last night, to help the Heels topple the Hurricanes in Miami…..Barnes has even come up strong, in some games that were on the line, that Heels eventually went on to lose…..CLICK HERE and you’ll see why Harrison Barnes has become, THE BLACK FALCON…….

    Oh no, that’s not new. As I know you remember, Andy, young Mr. Barnes gave himself that nickname before he had played his first game as a Tar Heel.

    The precious Falcon has been dishonored. He can only be a Falcon if he wears the black and orange.

  • Mick said,

    You cannot give yourself a nickname. That is in the rule book.
    C’mon man.

  • Bruce Mitchell said,

    That’s your guy, Mick, not mine.

    Keep in mind, The Black Falcon isn’t a mere UNC basketball player like, say, Bobby Jones, he’s a brand, you know, like Cher or Lady Gaga.
