Bob McAdoo is the forgotten superstar in the city of Buffalo

When discussing the greatest athletes in Buffalo history, Bob McAdoo has to be on the list. At the zenith of his career, he was the best player in the NBA not named Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. And even then, McAdoo’s play was good enough to earn him an MVP in 1974-75 even with Abdul-Jabbar hunting for the same title. McAdoo was an offensive nightmare.

Saturday’s results create new ‘reality’ for UNC, NC State

When the dreary wet day began, N.C. State was generally considered the up-and-coming team, with a realistic shot at stealing the Atlantic Division away from perennial frontrunners Clemson and Florida State.

Warriors’ James Michael McAdoo positioned for more playing time

One of the untold stories from the Warriors’ 2015 championship run was long coaches’ meetings about James Michael McAdoo.

UNC football cuts down on penalties

UNC did a lot of good things on offense in 2014. But playing mistake-free football was not one of them. This offseason, correcting those mistakes was a point of emphasis for coach Larry Fedora and his staff. Through five games in 2015, the team is seeing good results. UNC averages five penalties for only 38.6 yards a game, tying it with Vanderbilt for 14th in the nation.

Fedora Live: Marquise Williams's Maturation

One theme remained consistent in head coach Larry Fedora’s remarks about Marquise Williams during his radio show on Tuesday: maturity. Fedora discussed Williams’s bounce back game at Georgia Tech in length at Top of the Hill restaurant, detailing how quarterback’s age and experience helped him recover from a benching against Delaware.

Da'Norris Searcy Living Out His Dream in NFL

Ever since he could first write his name, Da'Norris Searcy had a Plan A. He never had a Plan B. “Career day would come along and they’d ask me what I wanted to be and I’d tell them I wanted to play in the NFL. They would always say, 'What’s your Plan B?' And I’d always tell them, ‘Plan A and Plan B are the same,'" Searcy recalled.

Three Larry Brown stories

Larry Brown is one of the most interesting, frustrating, entertaining and infuriating figures in the history of the sport. He’s a basketball savant. And he’s entirely unreliable. His selfishness is self-evident, but he’s also one of the great teachers of the game. He’s perpetually anxious, uncommonly detailed, overwhelmingly successful and unceasingly unhappy. Three Larry Brown stories come to mind.
