22 Jun 2011
A couple of months ago, as we were scheduling my SBN.com previews, we decided North Carolina's profile would land on June 22. We did not know that the NCAA would serve them with a Notice of Allegations (a perfect storm of academic fraud and dealings with agents) on the evening of June 21. We win the Internet for the day.
Anyway, the previews have kept right on rolling at SB Nation and Football Study Hall. Here's what you've missed lately if you aren't frequenting Study Hall yet...
The North Carolina Tar Heels And That Damned Dark Cloud
Predictable Platitudes And The Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets And The Forward Pass
Conservative Choices And The Connecticut Huskies
The California Golden Bears And Schizophrenia Medication
Dairy Queen And The Ole Miss Rebels
Service Breaks And The Illinois Fighting Illini
Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
