Back in Phil Ford's day, dunking the basketball in college was illegal. I wonder how many more points he would have had?
Maybe two. He was not a leaper, or this is what he said the other night at the game. He might have been a good three point shooter, but that is a mute point, since Tyler has only hit three three pointers in his career. They are two different type players, both all-americans, both winners.

The Tennessee Valley Authority, better known as TVA, has a coal-burning power plant located near Harriman, Tennessee, along Interstate 40 between Knoxville and Nashville. The stuff that is left over after TVA burns their coal is called coal ash.
Coal ash contains mercury and dangerous heavy metals like lead and arsenic - materials found naturally in coal are concentrated in the ash.

TVA has a huge mountain of this coal waste material stored in a gigantic pile next to their Harriman (Kingston) power plant, alongside a tributary of the Tennessee River.

On Monday morning Dec. 22 around 1:00 am, the earthen retaining wall around this mountain of coal ash failed and approximately 500 million gallons of nasty black coal ash flowed into tributaries of the Tennessee River - the water supply for Chattanooga TN and millions of people living downstream in Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky.

This Tennessee TVA spill is over 40 times bigger than the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska, if local news accounts are correct.
*** This is a huge environmental disaster of epic proportions.
To see an amazing aerial video of the spill - the big hunks and chunks in the river are mounds of coal ash:

Sad that this environmental disaster has received so little coverage.

But we'll leave out Notre Dame who was ranked in the top 10 (currently 8) when we played them and Michigan State who was ranked in the top 10 when we played them (currently 11).

Then we have to contend with the extremely competitive ACC games after the new year. There are currently 4 ACC teams in the top 25 with three of them in the top 10. Why would the Tar Heels, or any other highly ranked team, want to load up their schedule with the most difficult teams in nation? All that is going to do is risk injury and fatigue the players earlier in the season.

I'm sure the selection committee is worried about the criticism they will receive by picking a team that is a unanimous #1 selection in nearly every poll available.

Besides Gonzaga, who has UConn played?

Carolina ducks no one. Games are scheduled years in advance. Roy's crystal ball informed him that the Wildcats would be far below their usual level of competition, correct?

No committee needed when the Heels stroll through the ACC & NCAA tournament. I'll save this post so I can remind you along the way.
Heels are too deep and strong.
Read and weep.
And, next years crop of young men is even better!

It's fun when the Tarheel haters cry, cry, cry. You know when the Tarheels are on top, when the dookies start crying. It makes me laugh when I read things like, they duck all of the good teams. They have beat every team on their schedule and really stomped the two that were ranked. UConn. struggled with Gonzaga. Carolina has been doing this at less than full strength.

They were ranked in the top ten, before their spanking by the heels.
