I'll go ahead and say it... for those who were rolling their eyes that the win vs. Xavier got a thread... you'd better be up in arms about this one.

Anyone who still has a problem can just stop viewing these threads since I already explained the criteria for what threads get made.  You people can be really ridiculous sometimes.

A regular season upset in a very forgettable year with an underachieving team, or a 2nd round NCAA Tournament game that went to OT against a #1/#1 ranked and #1 seeded team and the team a lot of us have in our Top 5 Most Hated. Nope, this thread's game is bigger.

Either way, hopefully the people who were up in arms realize that this is not a historical highlights section but a compendium of all our history.

The first part is not necessary.  The second part is all that matters.

There are way too many whiners on this board.
 
I'm tired of all the whining.

Awesome game.  Foul trouble kept the Niners from being competitive in overtime.

Why?  This game was 20 times bigger than the Xavier game.

A third former Smith assistant, Bill Guthridge, was luckier. His top-seeded Tar Heels, in their first encounter with neighbor UNC Charlotte, were taken to the barricades of overtime by hoops revolutionary Diego (Trey) Guevara, who tied the game with a final-seconds three-point volley from the hills. Only flawless free throw shooting—the Tar Heels made their last 17 in a row—saved Carolina from elimination.

I agree that this should be threaded, as it was a big game.  My post was targeted ad those who were complaining that we were recognizing the Xavier game.

However, to say that a loss is 20 times bigger than any win is ridiculous, and pretty much admits that we're not a proud program.  To qualify yourself with "Yeah, well, we went to overtime vs. a 1 seed" is pretty sad if you lost in overtime.

It was a bigger game, win or lose.

What do I have to do to get across that the magnitude of the game is not the major qualification for what gets its own thread and what doesn't?

That's pretty sad.

If it were an overtime loss to Arizona, would you still consider it more important than a win in another game?

You already have.  I understand.  We're on to discussing the game.

If Arizona was the top seed, and the game was in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, then yeah.

Exactly!  I really feel sorry for some of you students where the greatest Niner win you have seen is this year's Eggsavier win.  It's not even in the same league as the importance of this Chapel Hill game.  That game was heart breaking.  

I was in Cincinnati the week before for the '98 conference tournament (another heart breaking loss to Cincy in the championship game).  My buddy got thrown out of the Shoe after our semifinal game against Southern Miss for yelling at Huggins.  What an awesome memory!

I guess I am lucky, we played in the conference championship game my sophomore (lost to Marquette), junior (lost to Cincy), and senior years (beat Louisville).

The quote I just posted for you says "I agree that this should be threaded, as it was a big game." This makes the legitmacy of a thread being posted directly contingent on whether or not it was a big game, unless I'm misreading it.

Booker said the Charlotte win was a valuable experience.

“It was crazy up there,” he said. “It reminded me of Duke, how loud it was, it was crazy.”

I find that hard to believe for some of us.  Arizona was a #1 seed that year, that's why I used them as an example.  However, it seems like a lot of us put Chapel Hill on a pedestal, even if it is out of hate.  We hate them, so for a lot of people this game is bigger than a loss.

I don't care who it was, I think it is horribly demeaning to our program to rate a loss of any kind higher than a win.

Case in point, 1977 vs. Marquette.  We lost that game... Final Four or not, it's not a bigger game historically than X.  Of course it was a bigger game before and during the game, but historically a win is a win, and a loss is a loss.  The game vs. Michigan in which we earned our trip to the Final Four, however, is the biggest game in school history, IMO.

By the way, is there a thread for the Michigan game yet?

Damn then we really do suck because the game that a lot of us are proudest of was a loss to Marquette.
