Chansky’s Notebook: Kinder and Gentler?

Two ways the Duke-Carolina rivalry has changed. When the Blue Devils and Tar Heels play, it is almost always a great game, tough and taut for most of 40 minutes. The common denominator making the greatest rivalry in college basketball is both programs ...

Chansky’s Notebook: Nine Common Opponents

It’s Duke-Carolina week, so let’s start with common opponents. We’ll be hearing lots of statistics and metrics this week as the Tar Heels and Blue Devils tangle in the first of two contests this Wednesday night in Durham. Nine common opponents to date ...

Chansky’s Notebook: The Stronger Survived

Ol’ Roy needed to channel his inner Belichick. As Carolina moves on to a winnable visit to Wake Forest Saturday, bloggers were still analyzing how usually composed Virginia coach Tony Bennett reacted to his players turning the ball over too much in fal...

Chansky’s Notebook: 5 ACC Lottery Picks

The recent mock NBA draft guts the ACC’s top teams. ESPN’s latest guess as to which college players will go and where if the NBA draft was held today is especially impactful on the ACC’s three best teams, especially Duke. The Blue Devils’ four freshmen...

Chansky’s Notebook: Rally Or Meltdown?

The face of a champion and the face of a choker. You can watch basketball for the rest of your God-given life and likely never see anything close to what happened in the Duke-Louisville game Tuesday night. The greatest second-half comeback in Mike Krzy...

Chansky’s Notebook: Out Of Juice

At the end of a tough game, Carolina was just too sick and tired. Perusing the box score, it is hard to believe that the Tar Heels actually led fourth-ranked Virginia by seven points with less than eight minutes to play. The Cavaliers shot 53 percent f...

Chansky’s Notebook: Two Days to Remember

The perfect storm lasted less than 24 hours, hopefully longer. By 10 pm Tuesday, the basketball Tar Heels had ended the most embarrassing three days in N.C. State history by scoring the most points ever against the Wolfpack, which the previous Saturday...

Chansky’s Notebook: Old Unies, Same Story

Uniforms were different 50 years ago, but not much else vs. State. In the walloping win over the Wolfpack, Carolina wore its throwback unies from the pre-Alexander Julian argyle days. But going back a half-century, a lot is still the same in the Caroli...

Chansky’s Notebook: No Super Big Deal

The Saints should have been in the Super Bowl for other reasons. Besides the infamous non-call in the NFC championship game that may have cost New Orleans a shot at playing on Super Sunday, the big game suffered in more ways than one. TV ratings, among...

Chansky’s Notebook: Beware The Wolfpack

Funny in basketball how what goes around comes around, isn’t it? Carolina avenged a home whipping to Louisville Saturday by being a combination of Muhammad Ali, who was honored in his home town and at the Yum Center. The Tar Heels floated like a butter...

Chansky’s Notebook: Love ‘Em Or Hate ‘Em

The Patriots could be 8-0 or 0-8 in the Tom Brady Super Bowl era. There have been polarizing sports team in history: the old Boston Celtics and New York Yankees, the Dallas Cowboys and Duke Blue Devils. But nothing like the New England Patriots. Howeve...

Chansky’s Notebook: Older, But Better For It

Why won’t LeBron James and Tigers Woods win another major? The two most famous professional athletes find themselves stuck on the same road, wondering if their last turn was a mistake. One is on the downswing as the greatest basketball player of his ge...

Chansky’s Notebook: A Much Tougher Out

Recruiting is why Carolina is better this season than last. I laugh when the ABC crowd complains that UNC got off Scot-free in the endless academic scandal. Yes, the university escaped more penalties from the NCAA but paid in so many other ways — like ...

Chansky’s Notebook: Heading For The Turn

Keeping pace week for Carolina basketball starts tonight. Like a championship horse race, the Tar Heels are in the back stretch hoping to keep pace with the other contenders as they head for the finish line in February and early March. And they have ev...

Chansky’s Notebook: Ridiculous Upside!

Theo Pinson has become the rage among two-way pro players. A story on the SB blog Ridiculous Upside promotes Theo, the former Carolina team star, as one of the best wing players in the NBA’s G League and highlights his breakout game when he ...

Chansky’s Notebook: Kevin Durant’s Greatest Play

Kevin Durant has risen way above his personal criticism. Sure, he was ripped by some for leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder and signing with the reigning NBA champion Warriors. And it always hasn’t be smooth sailing with superstar Steph Curry and aggres...

Chansky’s Notebook: Stop The Freaking Game!

It is ludicrous the NFL can’t prevent what happened to the Saints. The National Football League is the richest professional sports enterprise in the U.S. if not the world. Millions upon millions are spent watching, attending, advertising and betting on...

Chansky’s Notebook: Untimely Pause?

Will an eight-day layoff help or hurt the Tar Heels? The obvious quirk in the schedule when it came out is now upon us, and it could be good or bad for a Carolina team that has seemed to find itself over the last two games. Eight days off and idle over...

Chansky’s Notebook: Generational Quarterbacks

All logic favors the Saints and Chiefs advancing to the Super Bowl. The NFC and AFC championship games Sunday are both rematches from the regular season that the home teams should win, one indoor at the climate-controlled Super Dome in New Orleans and ...

Chansky’s Notebook: A Dear John Letter

Art Chansky ruminates on what’s going through Mack Brown’s mind since the 2019 football schedule was released:  An open letter from Mack Brown to John Swofford: Dear John, I know you don’t make the ACC football schedules, but as the guy who brought me ...

Chansky’s Notebook: Winning Ugly

Little meant a lot for the Tar Heels last night. Imagine Carolina playing two stinkers in a row at the Smith Center. Well, it almost happened against Notre Dame, which was outshooting and outscoring the Heels until late in the second half when the Iris...

Chansky’s Notebook: Life Happened To Duke

Duke’s season may have taken a turn for the worse. The Blue Devils’ lost their most important player Monday night, indefinitely, and with it their invincibility. Tre Jones, the least heralded of the Fab Four, is the floor leader of their top-ranked tea...

Chansky’s Notebook: Quick Fix Needed

“The other team has coaches, too.” That was a favorite line of Dean Smith when his Tar Heels were preparing for a tough opponent or they didn’t play as well as expected. I thought about that after Chris Mack’s Louisville Cardinals cleaned Carolina’s co...

Chansky’s Notebook: Early ACC Overrated?

This weekend should show if the ACC is truly a two-team race. Basketball commentators are crowing again about how strong the ACC is from top to bottom, with six teams ranked in the top 15. But we’ve seen and heard all this before, and I don’t buy it. T...

Chansky’s Notebook: Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Weather will be a big factor in who gets to play for the Super Bowl. In the AFC playoffs, early games on Saturday and Sunday will likely be impacted by the conditions. The Indianapolis Colts, who play at home inside Lucas Oil Stadium, and the LA Charge...

Chansky’s Notebook: Hurts So Good

Photo by Todd Melet I guess you could call Carolina’s win at State pretty ugly. The Tar Heels continued their six-straight dominance over N.C. State in Raleigh by using almost everything they had in their tank to hold off the Wolfpack and overcome thei...

Chansky’s Notebook: Top Of The Class

The good news and bad news about Clemson’s blowout of Alabama. I sure hope everyone understands why Dabo Swinney replaced Kelly Bryant with true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence after four games of the season. Swinney knew his team could not beat t...

Chansky’s Notebook: Always Must-See TV

Does playoff football rip out your guts, or what? You can say what you want about the National Football League – and I’ve said it all before – but the greed, the money, the politics that control the NFL can’t keep us from watching when the playoffs rol...

Chansky’s Notebook: Who Needs The Final Four?

Can Alabama-Clemson IV bail out the college football playoff again? Over the last three years, only one of the six semifinal games of the College Football Playoff was worth all the fuss – Georgia’s 54-48 double-overtime win against Oklahoma. And the fa...

Chansky’s Notebook: Mystery Team?

Is Carolina ready to begin ACC play? Honestly, I can’t tell. The 10-3 Tar Heels open conference action with two road games, Saturday at Pitt and Tuesday night at 18th-ranked N.C. State. Somehow, I feel less confident than in past years, even though the...
