Meeks is a Raptor

Kennedy Meeks is a Toronto Raptor. After the former Tar Heel averaged 11.3 points and 5.5 rebounds in four NBA Summer League games, the Raptors signed him on Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed. Meeks himself announced the news via Twitter.

After good summer league play, Christian Schneider at Tar Heel Blog asks if Kendall Marshall and Marcus Paige might find roster spots.

Yesterday, I wrote about the Tar Heels' place in the ACC football preseason polls –specifically their fifth-place standing– and took a look at Carolina's performance vs. expectations in the Larry Fedora era.

At last week's ACC Kickoff, Fedora spoke about the Tar Heels' trip to Norfolk for a game against Old Dominion, a program on the rise, in September.

Brian Geisinger at ACC Sports Journal says Malik Carney can be a force for the Tar Heel defensive line in 2017.

Carolina men's golf elevated associate head coach Andrew Dibitetto to the position of head coach on Tuesday. DiBitetto's promotion follows the dismissal of Andrew Sapp. He has helped the Tar Heels to steady improvement over the past six years, and the team returns seniors Ben Griffin and William Register, who are tied for second overall in career stroke average at the school.

Yesterday at the gym, I saw a familiar logo in the background of an MSNBC live shot from The Washington Post.

Turns out that's the desk of national reporter Brady Dennis, a 2000 graduate of Carolina. And 2016 graduate Drew Goins, multiplatform editor, chimed in as well.

 

Some twenty years after hearing Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" for the first time (while watching "The Wizard of Oz," naturally), I saw Roger Waters last night at Greenboro Coliseum.

Today on Argyle Report - The preseason All-ACC football team should be announced shortly. Look for a post later on my personal selection process.
