“When you play North Carolina, there’s nothing you can do.” ~ Tom Izzo
Tom, you’re right. You learned that twice this year. Once in December, and then just last night. You all really had a good run. You really did. But what it all comes down to is that you’re not North Carolina.
As a UNC alum, there are few moments that affect you like a National Championship. I remember being on Franklin Street after we won in 2005. As a senior, that national championship was my one shining moment. Sitting on my friend’s shoulder, surrounded by thousands of my closest friends and fellow Tar Heel fans is one of my favorite memories of my time at UNC.
I’ve said before that I agree with Thomas Wolfe, as he described his time at UNC as, “…as close to magic as I’ve ever been.” I’m blessed that there are still times like these, where I feel that magic.
