Tar Heel Post
A few days ago, I wrote an article entitled "UNC Basketball: How Soon We Forget." In that article, I warned us all not to forget how good UNC was back in 2008-2009 and how good of a coach Roy Williams was. I just did not want us to forget despite a terrible 2009-2010 season and a bad start to the 2010-2011 season.

Now, it seems that many others have forgotten and that includes recruits. One recruit in particular, Austin Rivers who is committed to Duke.
In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel Rivers said, "I don't think it's much of a rivalry right now because UNC's not better than Duke, nowhere near in my opinion. Until UNC can start winning some games, I don't think it's much of a rivalry. They've got to do something first. Duke's done their share. I don't know about UNC."

For one, a rivalry is not created or diminished in one year. Secondly, to say it is not a rivalry is to bash one of the things his future school lives for. Third, if anybody could have said that it was North Carolina when they beat Duke four years in a row at Cameron.

Oh how soon they forget. But P.J. Hairston was not about to let him forget. You can go back and check the tweets, but Hairston basically reminded Rivers of the last four wins at Cameron.

Of course, we realize this is part of the good-natured rivalry, but I think sometimes people do not look past one season. Remember, to look at the programs as a whole. It is definitely a rivalry, and nobody, not even Austin Rivers, can take that away. 

Both programs have been good for years, and will continue to dominate for years to come.

Louis Vuitton uses what you would call production Louis Vuitton Outlet code. This code is for their own purpose. It does give some sort of clue as to how old the bag is or where it was made.
