    He had a small distraction, a side-hustle that kept his attention elsewhere.

    UNC records by the decades.
    1982-89. 8 Finals Fours. 7 titles. (*)
    1990-99. 10 Final Fours. 8 titles.
    2000-09. 7 Final Fours. 5 titles.
    2010-19. 4 Final Fours. 1 title.

    (* 10 Final Fours and 8 titles if you include the AIAW tournaments in 1980-81.)

    While most programs would envy 4 Final Fours and a national title in a decade, we are behind both Stanford (7 Final Fours and 3 titles) and FSU (6 Final Fours and 2 titles) in this decade. This is especially remarkable for FSU, which didn't have a team until 1995.

    Yeah, but Anson is responsible for growing the women's game and spurring those other programs to build their teams, and catch up to Carolina. This last decade is less about Carolina going down than other teams catching up to them.

    Also, I took care of 2 UNC players who came to me for 2nd opinions, and Anson was always great to deal with. I didn't know him well but we got along well, even though he knew I bled the wrong color of blue (to him anyway).

    And to move the thread a bit further off task, Stanford beat Carolina yesterday in the women’s NCAA soccer championship, 0-0 at the end of overtime play. Stanford won 5-4 on penalty kicks.

    And Stanford head coach is from England. So apparently he has not been infected by this silly idea of not running up the score

    Nassau County has an unusual policy designed to prevent lopsided results in football games: If a team wins a game by more than 42 points, the winning coach must explain to a special committee why such an outsize margin could not be avoided.
    The coach's explanation was not accepted and he was suspended for one game.
    Nassau County is now considering expanding the lopsided scores policy to other sports. The proposal would exempt baseball and softball, which already have mercy rules in place.

    I wonder if they would make a distance runner slow down if he or she is about to lap someone in a 3200. :-(
