    I think "The Flying Tammys" is perfect, since they always suck.

    This is too funny. There’s gotta be a ton of unemployed, bored with life, 25 year old kids out there just googling every phrase and name in all of existence trying to find something, that at one time, might be linked to somebody/something who wasn’t so nice in the past, who they can be offended by.

    I’m going with “the scholars”

    I'm surprised Kenan Stadium hasn't been big in the news.

    I'm offended by Roy and the UNC brand. I think we should get rid of UNC all together.

    We're close. Though if anything about Carolina is offensive, it's that awful blue they wear, and I don't see anyone raising hell about that!

    The Civil War was terrible. In 1861, there were about 1.1 million White Men in the Confederacy between age 15 and 44. Twenty three percent, 258,000+, died in the war. Most of them were dirt poor. Very few of them owned Slaves. Most of them had only one pair of shoes, and after months on dirt roads and swamps they had blisters,fungus, ringworm,etc. North Carolina had an abundance of pine trees and sold tar,pitch and turpentine to Great Britain. Maybe the name should be changed, but like most wars the soldiers were teenagers who were terrified. The legend is that the soldiers put tar on their heels to dig in. They didn't really put tar on their heels, but after crossing rivers and walking hundreds of miles, their feet and shoes were filthy. It was only 135 years ago but we aren't certain of the origin of Tar Heels or Stonewall Jackson. I've lived my life enjoying the Tar Heels as a unique symbol of the university of North Carolina and don't associate it with the Civil War or Slavery. Perhaps I should, and perhaps my mind can be changed, but today I hope that UNC retains the Tar Heels logo

    The spots on their cheetah uniform can be little banners.
