Long time no talk! What’s up, brotherman? How you been? How was the trip to Maine? Talked to Dad lately? How’s the wife and kid, he reciting Shakespeare yet?

Big words, I realize, considering how little recent success UNC has to stand on against the Bugs and their repetitive motion offense. Run, run, play-action run, run…and I’m not even trying to hear that Tech has come to embrace the advent of the forward pass in the last three weeks: even grinders get bored enough to throw after scoring 50 points. But I’ll take my chances this Saturday with the boys in Columbia Blue, as the color commentator for ESPN called them during the UNC-UVa game, to the bewilderment of his partner and the country as a whole below 110th St. on the West Side.*
