Default What will ESPN call us?

I was just browsing a UNC forum and read a post about what abbreviation ESPN will use for us. So it started me thinking -- is ESPN going to call UNC 'Carolina' for the whole game? Oh, man, that would suck.

And before anyone else says it, ESPN hates us. ;)

They were pretty even-handed with it during the super regional, avoiding "Carolina" entirely. Sometimes they slipped up, but from what I recall, they made that mistake with both schools. I wager we'll be called "USC" a lot more than we usually are.

That's good to hear. I can deal with USC as long as they don't spend the whole game calling THEM Carolina.

I live in the baby blue north, so I spend every football season explaining that, yes, I pull for Carolina, and NO, I do not mean the baby blue one.

I hope they don't play up that "right to be called Carolina" like they did in the baseball series...it got old real fast.


Just call us "daddy Carolina" and the others Jr.

They are in Columbia, they had better say Carolina if they want to make it out.

It'll be UNC and USC during the game.

Stuart Scott just declared on ESPN "it's the battle of the Carolina's, tho we all know who the real Carolina is".

During the super regional the announcers tried not to use just the word "Carolina" the whole game.

Just heard something interesting on SportsCenter.

Stuart Scott: So who is the real Carolina? We know the answer to that, but it's South Carolina vs. North Carolina at 6:00 ET...blah blah blah.

Not sure what he meant by that.
