Submitted by Andrew_Carter - Raleigh News & Observer: I’ve received a lot of email over the years. Some of it nice. Some of it mean. But I don’t know if I’ve ever received an email quite like the one that popped into my inbox at 12:49 p.m. today.
The individual who wrote me – whose name I’m withholding to protect the guilty – claimed that North Carolina invented Kendall Marshall’s injury so that the Tar Heels could remain in the news and overshadow N.C. State’s appearance in the Sweet 16.
SUBJECT: Marshall’s wrist injury
Did you actually see a doctor cut the wrist??? How many times has UNC played this card during the years??? You and I know there is no doubt Marshall will play this weekend. Roy knew that NC State was in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the Titanic sunk, and lo and behold, the Pack was in the sweet 16. Roy knew the media would be all over the Wolfpack and he was not going to let that happen. We all know it is only about the Heels. So excuse me if do not believe the story...How is Barnes ankle??? Roy cried all year about that and he was 1st team ACC. I think the league should start fining the Heels for these false reports.
No, thank you.
