It's astounding how far the Sentinel has fallen. AP coverage of the title game?

That was embarrasing for Michigan State Basketball and an amazing statement for The Heels.

The pretenders are gone, and the ACC is back in their rightful place, atop the basketball world!

The sweetest thing of all is no teams from the corrupt big east were present. The sports broadcasters are so blatently biased to that conference it's sickening. Go Heels!

This sports reporter should be covering Dancing with the Stars. You are as bad a Billy Packer - and BTW is he working now? No, he was replaced by Kellog who at least doesn't dis Carolina at every opportunity. If you don't want to write about the game, tell your boss and maybe you can get transferred to the entertainment section.

The game was great. The Carolina players shone as we all knew they could and put on a clinic for the championship game. I'm so glad for Roy and all the players to have this victory. I was on the court when UNC beat Georgetown in 1982 and while that game was more of a nailbiter, this one was every bit as sweet -seeing the kids we've watched grow into their own from rebuidling after the last championship in 2005 and the disappointment last year. Carolina takes her place in the record books tied for second in most NCAA basketball championships. And this year's recruiting class looks great...
