Does anyone honestly know which North Carolina Tar Heels team is the real version? Are they the team who beat the then ranked number one team in the country or are they a group of fellas who lost to Belmont and UAB? Chances are, at least for now, they are somewhere in the middle.
With all of that being said, however, there is no question that North Carolina has some talent. Even with one of their players getting the heave-ho in favor of, um, something, there isn’t that many teams in the ACC who can compete with the Tar Heels as far as athleticism, skill and bucket-making goes.
Now, North Carolina has a pretty tough test against Kentucky. Wait, what? It’s not “that” Kentucky? Oh….

Should I Watch?
Eh. This one is up to you my friend. Northern Kentucky isn’t even one of those cool small programs. Sure, their nickname is pretty awesome, but they aren’t any good. Don’t, under any circumstances, expect this game to be close. It might be, per the blowout factor, kind of entertaining. I mean, if you are into the whole bloodbath kind of thing.
