I’ve been rather quiet about the Carolina TarHeels preseason and their 4-1 start on the regular season, so I thought I’d make a quick mention about the ACC/Big 10 Challenge that kicks off tonight. What I really want to know is this: How long before someone in the Big 10 decides they need to cancel this annual event? In past seven contests, the ACC has literally spanked the Big 10, winning 40 of the 64 total games. I don’t this year will be any exception. Carolina does indeed have a talented (albeit young) squad, but so do many other teams in the ACC.
Tonight’s game against Ohio State will likely be one of Carolina’s toughest matchups this season outside of the ACC. Tip-off in the Smith Center is at 9:00 PM tonight and the game will be televised on ESPN, so get your game face on and plop yourself in front of the TV.
