I suppose I would be labeled a racist if I said I’d rather have a “white-berry”?

I was ashamed of UNC when they let 0bama play in a pick up game.

Yeah, baby!! FYI: I always pull for WF against all other ACC teams and out of conference, except when they are matched up against The Pack (1975-1979) I pull for UNC against the Dookies, always.

...LOL! That MIGHT be “blingy” enough. But would that be considered “Presidential bling”?

My guess is that WF will be dropping below Memphis in the polls next week.

It’s kind of funny considering Reggie Love’s role.

Probably and I would be labeled racist if I wanted a “Red-berry” for being part Cherokee.

You were there just after Roman Gabriel played? Cool. The place sure has changed...I still love Reynolds. Met DT (Skywalker), Bureleson, Monte, and some others Aug., '75. Never saw Monte without a Bud when he was at the apt. he shared with David (The Orchards). I enjoyed watching the Buckey twins and Ted Brown play. I sure hated seeing Holtz leave. Anyway, was sitting in the Rams Section - '77 I think ($$$ Carolina alumni - 40 yd line) pulling for The Pack & giving The Heels all the heck when State whooped them 34-7 (IIRC) at Keenan. P'O'd my gf's dad (UNC Med School Grad) hehehehehe. We finished the 2nd half across the field in the student section. Oh, what a time. FYI....The Wolf Line was mine and 4 others brainchild with all the routes, timings, funding, maintenance, route building, bus acquisition --- Enigneering Concepts class project fall '75 - freshman then. We had to present it 3 more times and then turn in all data to the bigwigs....chancellor, head of CE, mayor of Raleighwood with others.

As a matter of fact, the bus service terminal (motor pool) is in the exact spot we placed it (north of Sullivan Dr.) for at the inception to reduce the need for more parking.

J.W. Isenhouer was my PE tennis I & II coach - what a slave driver - lol!. Live in Bragaw for 2 years then 2 years off campus.

Anyway GO PACK!!

Nothing can match basketball in Reynolds for getting the blood pumping! Especially David Thompson and Monte Towe with their alley-oop plays. Check this out to bring back fond memories.

Agree...imagine if DT had been able to dunk back then and Dean Smith had had a 45 sec shot clock? I hated the 4-corners and despised Phil Ford and the way Dean played his team back then....I remember when we played the Heels and Dean went into the 4-corners with 13:23 left on the 1st half clock....The score was like 13-7 Heels at that time...talk about mad then. Shame DT let the money and the fame and fortune get to him like it did....I remember his purple Merc. 450 SL convertible he drove after signing with the Hawks- beach hat, shorts, tank top, sun glasses and carrying a b-ball.....that I saw at least a dozen times. DT was a really nice person back then.
