UNC: Back-to-back National Champs!

It has been brought to our attention that in our short time on earth - all three days of it - we have been relatively negative. We were even mentioned in the same breath as Skip Bayless. Sadly, we can't argue this point - the facts are right in front of us.

The Bayless comment really took us off guard, though. We don't feel it was justified, but we don't want to even go down the same street as Bayless. In fact, if Bayless is driving, we'll walk, thank you very much.

In that light, we have decided to bring to your attention something that not only makes our hearts warm, but should bring a smile to your face as well.

SI on Campus' "What If" Poll - which is the most fun I've had pretending since I decided a cardboard box was a rocket ship when I was four - has North Carolina claiming its second national title in as many years.

The premise of the poll is just a grand time in and of itself. What if everyone had to attend four years of college before going to ball in the L? Think of Bron Bron rockin' a Buckeye's jersey, or Melo playing all four years in Syracuse Orange. Amare would be dunking all over people at Memphis while Bassy would be getting suspended for handgun violations from Louisville instead of Portland.

Regardless, the squad UNC would throw out on the court would just be devastating. Four lottery picks - Felton, McCants, May, and Marvin Williams - plus you throw in Dwight Howard and J.R. Smith. J.R. hasn't exactly lit the League on fire - he's an In-Game Dunk Contest waiting to happen, though - but Howard has. Just for shits and giggles, we'll play Tyler Hansbrough - the reigning freshman of the year and third-team All-American - as our seventh man. And just so everyone knows what they are doing and there is someone to tell McCants to keep his jeresy on, we'll have the National Coach of the Year stalking the sidelines and breaking clipboards for no good reason.

In a word:

I'm thinking they average at least 123 points and roughly 37 dunks per game. As much fun as it was to see George Mason in the Final Four -
gulp - I'd have to trade in that for the Heels going back-to-back. And the best part? "One Shining Moment." Cue the goosbumps.

and if that was the case... what could any duke fan say to us unc fans...we would be beating them by 35. Hey maybe even roy would get to do the chevy commercial next year for the final four, what a bright spot that would be as compared to seeing coach k and the applebees tasty shrimp guys every 2 minutes
