Ed Cone and I agree on something: Dick Vitale is useless. The question is where -o- where will he be tonight —– at Cameron, cheering on his Dookies against Boston College, or at Littlejohn, where the Tar Heels have a tough time with Clemson?

As for the three-point shot, I agree it’s added a lot of excitement over the years, but it’s also painfully drawn out more than a few games. A perfect example was last night’s N.C. State -Florida State matchup, where the Seminoles kept trading 3s for foul shots down the stretch, extending the game by a good half -hour.

Yes, I had to keep watching to make sure the Wolfpack didn’t blow this one, while my couch partner sat and tapped her foot, waiting to cue the next episode of ‘Big Love.’
