Looking at next year schedule anyone already thinking about heading out to Tar Heel Country for a Mid-September afternoon game? I got really bored at work tonight and did some Google Mapping of their Stadium/Campus and it looks like it would be a nice venue to check out and actually the campus itself looks like a fun one to wander around on pre/post game.
Duke and Northwestern play on the same day in Durham, so if the game times work out fans could take in a doubleheader.
We used to play winter golf on the Anchorage Russian Jack golf course. We used colored balls and sometimes they were still hard to find. It was fun and free, except for the occasional lost ball!Who would be in on organizing a huge Gopher golf outing over the long weekend?
We are thinking the same with our Flagstaff in tow, Never been to the SE before so figure to spend two weeks and take in the NU game on the way back home.We’re going as well. Putting together a big trip from Washington state starting with the home Nebraska game, the MN State Fair, then on to NC for the game. We have plenty of friends and family to visit in both states, plus going to do some hiking in the mountains.
We are golfing that Thursday/Friday just not sure where yet. Might be closer to Greensboro or Charlotte and not necessarily in the triangle area. However; if someone sets something up in the vicinity would maybe have 4 of us join.Who would be in on organizing a huge Gopher golf outing over the long weekend?
Yes. Let's not dishonor Mr. Bell, Mr. Eller, nor their teammates. Takes on history (Jim Crow, etc. ) can be voiced on the OTB.Bobby Bell and Carl Eller were both from North Carolina. Both were not allowed to play or UNC due to good old fashioned Jim Crow (no long lost political board type comments on who owns most of that- hint- Bill Clinton's mentors/ heroes in the Senate not to be named here).
I have been standing nearby both of those guys when they were well into their 70s and they looked nothing like anyone else I never knew at that age. I felt like a decrepit old man in my 40s next to both of them.
Assuming both are healthy it would be great to see both part of the traveling party, at the walk through, and on the sidelines for this one at Chapel Hill. The TV crew would be all over that visual. I know Bobby Bell in particular has been on the sidelines at times in recent years, probably back in the Kill era.
