What happened on Sunday?Â I was out shooting hoops and by the time it got dark one of the fewÂ remaining players came running out of his house saying the Heels had lost in overtime.
We had done a radio check and at one point late in the regulation portionÂ of the Georgetown contest the Heels had built up a 10 point lead.Â Georgetown came roaring back to send the game into OT and by all indications the Heels Ran out of Runs.
Throughout the tournaments the Heels would build up a lead and then the other guys would come back and then the Heels would take off and make a reverse run and put the game away.Â Remember the Southern Cal game?Â A perfect example.Â On Sunday the Heels Ran out of Runs.
Where does this leave you hanging with us having no ACC teams left in the NCAA tournament?Â Is the interest still there for you?Â I say when the conference goes down then the ACC fan interest goes down.Â That’s unless you are a North Carolina hater and the ABC fan for life like our old buddies Scott Hall and Bruce Mitchell, because then you never had an interest in the Heels to begin unless they are dead, and the loss has you living in ABC Heaven.
Don Moore was on the money when he said with the absence of an ACC team the women’s regional at the Greensboro Coliseum is in Big Trouble and it might just be dead along with Greensboro’s hopes for a Women’s Final Four.Â Admit it, the biggestÂ sportÂ in this state is ACC Basketball.Â Nothing else comes close.Â With ACC basketball we are everything, without itÂ we are nothing.Â
Listen to what I’m telling you and you will save yourself a lot of time, money, and grief.Â What do you think?Â Are the viewing numbers going down now that the Heels have gone homeÂ and will the locals support the games at the GreensboroÂ Coliseum with no ACC team in sight?
