Football-Basketball: Which Side Are You On?
This column in the Winston-Salem Journal doesn't tell tell us a lot that Prisbell hasn't already written, but there are two observations I thought were pretty illustrative: (1) the BCS race actually has more clarity than the ACC race right now, and (2) with three weeks left in the regular season, just three teams have been eliminated from championship contention, and one of them is preseason favorite Clemson. What a league.
Meantime, the North Carolina football team remains tied for first place in the Coastal Division with a big game coming up Saturday at Maryland, and it appears the media and fans in Chapel Hill are focused on two things: (1) Is Butch Davis going to take the Tennessee job? and (2) Basketball season is starting.
Apparently conflicts with basketball rear their heads early for Tar Heels fans, when Saturday's hardwood season opener tips off just a half-hour after North Carolina kicks off against Maryland in College Park. Now I understand that the ACC is basketball country and football just doesn't compare (it's taken nine years of being 500 miles from Ann Arbor to understand, but I get it now), but is a hoops opener against Penn really bigger than third-to-last game of the football season for a division contender? If the Maryland basketball team were playing its season opener late Saturday afternoon, which game would you be more interested in?
