A wise man once said, “winning isn’t every thing. It’s the only thing.” That man? Vince Lombardi. That’s right, y’all. Droppin’ serious science. Mad knowledge. So don’t front. Because what you hear, it’s not a test. I’m bloggin’ to the beat.
Check it. Lombardi’s phrase isn’t just a random saying you can use to wow your buddies. It’s applicable. Specifically? To tonight’s game, between North Carolina and Maryland. Word up.
I’ve seen every “House Party” movie eleven times. If you ain’t hip, better ask somebody. But in the meantime, just know that instead of saying “look at this” Kid n’ Play say “peep.” So that’s what I say, too. So yo yo, homies. Peep this.
My Tar Heels are a massive 21.5-point favorite in this game. Hansbrough. Lawson. Ellington. Green. What else do you need to know? Oh, you want more? Peep this, kid. Carolina? They’ve only had three games this season decided by less than 15 points. Tops in the ACC in scoring. Second in field goal percentage. Cool as the other side of the pillow. And you know something? That’s the only really cool phrase I’ve ever used. Boo-ya!
But on defense? The Heels aren’t so jiggy. Second to last in scoring defense in the ACC. Where does Maryland rank? Third, kid. Mad props to the Terps, son. Walk this way, talk this way. Jam Master Jay’s makin out my sound. The turntables? They might wobble. But they don’t fall down. And that’s real.
The Terps have a one-game win streak. The Heels? They’re at five. You do the math. Can the Terps win? If Heavy D can find love, anything’s possible. But the question is, what are they gonna do with it. Gary Williams got mad love from Debbie Yow today. But yo. Actions still speak louder. And Maryland needs to speak a lot in Chapel Hill. They need to get hot. And I mean Laura Winslow hot. They need to be the hater in the house. They need to regulate AND get jiggy. At the same time. Possible? Sure. Probable? Hardly. Just one man’s take. A wise man once said, “don’t hate the player. Hate the game.” Think about that, people. Think about it. And let me know.
Prediction: North Carolina 74, Maryland 60
