Opinions Without Consequences

Oct 15,’13:   HOLY CHOO CHOO!  Say it ain’t so Chris Hanburger.   For the first time ever since Andy Griffith sucked up his big orange watching football “amid those lofty pines”, the Home team will be in all-black unis this Thursday night.... and on National freakin’ TV too.

Somebody check that stadium naming agreement with Old Man Kenan.  Specifically paragraph four on page six...... “shall never ever wear all-black uniforms EVER.” ...... What’s next?  Fracking down The Old Well! ..... Clemson winning a Bkball game in Chapel Hill ????

I know of one kinda odd bunch of “world’s greatest Tar Heel fans” who are in Year 26 of a nasty cuss-fight over the REAL PMS color for “Carolina Blue”.   Gotta figure that bunch ain’t going to be none too happy over this.  That bunch hasn’t been none-too-happy since Marv tweeted etc three years ago so it’s not like it will totally ruin their day.

Ye Ol’ Dean (of Dome fame) supposedly used 5-6 different shades of C-Blue depending on the specific purpose at the time.  A darker contrast with white being preferable on TV, etc.   But Dean...... never sent his hoopsters out of the tunnel in all-black.  And besides..... Dean is Dean and who in The County of Orange would dare say a discouraging word to a man named for a Dome?

This new guy from Mississippi hasn’t built quite the mountain of “because I said so” cred that “Dean” had.  The Butcher caught flak for wearing a navy visor for criss-sake..... then ButchWorld blew up and “the navy visor” wasn’t that bigga deal any more.

Interesting Anecdote..... I was standing with Matt Kupec (yes, THAT one) when Butcher led his team onto to Kenan’s hallowed turf in all-navy unis.   Matt went ballistic.   Some will undoubtedly “go ballistic” when the all-blacks run out..... but I won’t be standing with Matt Kupec this time.   Funny how you remember certain “where I was when .........”s.

Of course, it’s not what Matt thinks..... or BobLee thinks...... or even the swells in TheBlueZone..... or the academic dandies with Charming Carol From Dartmouth up in the Chancy’s Box.  It’s all about what 17 year-olds on ESPN’s Top 100 list think.  Before you say “who cares what they think?” wait til the game with The U is over.

Is it “the uniform” or is it the athletical proclivity (?) inside the uni?   Let that debate commence.

give me substance over style every day!

BL: RBHer, your opinion matters about as little as mine does on this subject.

Funny how we old folk fans have a similar reaction to fad changes in uniforms regardless of school......I distinctly remember saying to the wuffie next me when our team paid homage to almost all black : anything but PMS blue!

BL: Millenials now call the shots for sure.

Madison Avenue has forsaken baby boomers. :-(

Noticed John MacDonald on your author list. Have you read Ross MacDonald?

Nope... just John D and Travis McGee.

Yup. That debate was on PackPride, whether to follow the Oregon model or to stick with simple school colors. Someone produced polls that showed that 'creativity' in uni choice affected recruits (that top 100). Of course those polls were conducted by uni companies. I would like to see further research on the kids who ask what will I be wearing on game day as opposed to asking who is my coach likely to be, what style offense/defense will we play and or less likely asking what should I major in. I would suspect the ones concerned with wardrobe would be more likely to tweet about the inappropriate benefits they receive from advance men for agents. Just a guess.

Personally I like the custom accelerator pedal from Auto Zone on y'all's helmets:-) Well except on Gio.

BL: I'm pretty sure our die-hard "old grads" are finally realizing that Thomas Wolfe, Charlie Kuralt and Alexander Julian don't resonate too well with "2013 blue-chippers".... not that they EVER did.

Tricky unis beat "some old white dudes" every time.

If the Heels don't begin winning, they and The Hat might should look for invisibility uniforms.

BL: Not but so much one can do with "left-overs". But again fans will have opinions, and will mutter them, regardless. Tuff bizness.

You guys could adopt New Zealand's Rugby team. They're the All Blacks. Maybe the Heels can line up at the 40 and perform the haka before the Miami team.
Ps special prayers for Sylvia.

BL: Maybe the lights will go out in Kenan like they did a few years ago. The term Zero Dark will take on new meaning.

Everyone blamed THAT on Dickie, which I'm glad to do re: this.
