    Christmas List: Jerseys in the Rafters 2 Out Now! 

    Some of you may have seen the original incarnation of “Jerseys in the Rafters,” which I believe you can buy at most apparel and book stores in Chapel Hill. But since that film came out in 2001, seven additional players have received the highest honor that you can receive in Carolina Basketball.

    Well, I guess the Dean E. Smith Center is a pretty good one, too. But still.

    In light of that fact, a newer, bigger, bad-asser version of the DVD has been released including players from the ’09 championship run. Tyler Hansbrough even makes an appearance on the cover.

    I’ve not seen the original, but I do own Jump Around, which is about the ’09 team’s title season and is produced by the same company, but how could almost two hours of footage of Tar Heel greats be bad? The “Dean Smith: Coach, Mentor, Friend” feature sounds sick. I watched it three times in the first month I owned it. Let’s assume it’s pretty much awesome. Plus, it came out Dec. 1, just in time for Christmas. We have a copy coming so expect a review soon!

    Buy it!

    Barnes Burns Duke, Signs with Carolina 

    Christmas has come early for the Heels.  This afternoon, top rated prospect Harrison Barnes selected UNC over Oklahoma, UCLA, Iowa State, Kansas and most notably, Duke.  Landing Barnes makes Carolina’s Class of 2010 one of the best in the country.  He will join PG Kendall Marshall and SG Reggie Bullock on a team that should undoubtedly challenge for the 2011 National Title.

    Barnes announced his decision in an unusual fashion-Skyping Coach Williams to inform him of his intent to play for the Heels.  I am rather impressed with Roy’s technical savvy.  As Coach would say himself, he has had the same putter and wife for the past 30 years.

    As for Duke, this is yet another blow to Coach K’s recruiting prowess.  Roy has outmaneuvered Coach K for other prized recruits in the recent past (Brandan Wright), and Barnes’s decision solidifies Williams as the top recruiter (and coach) on Tobacco Road.  All this should make for an interesting trip to Cameron for Mr. Barnes in February of 2011.

    Now, time for a victory cigar.
