UNC Football adds Techno-Bling to Recruiting Arsenal

UNC Football….facing the dire threat of MORE CHARGING STATIONS in NCState’s Murphy Center…. responds:   The Wannabee Gridiron Juggernaut “amid Kenan’s Lofty Pines” has announced:

Wi-Fi in UNC’s FB Locker Room

and soon to be throughout the spacious confines of The Kenan Football Center including, one can only assume… in The Fabled Mack Brown Aquarium.

according to our super secret deep-inside source over yonder.   The implications of “this” is already reverberating across Power Five World.   That UNC somehow managed to make it to The Russell Athletic Bowl without Wi-Fi in their locker room is nothing less than incredible.

The Great Bling Battle wages on with Triangle-area rivals doggedly playing Anything you can do we can do too… and spend even more Fat Cat Money doing it…. So There!

The Tar Heel Locker Room Wi-Fi was activated on Thursday…. with the Big News rapidly spreading from Murphy To Manteo. In-state blue-chippers made UNCFBRoomnote that surely THIS indicates Team Larry/Gene’s total commitment to once & forever finally Awaken The Sleeping Giant Amid Kenan’s Lofty Pines.

The cost of this latest techno-bling was not announced but is presumed to be somewhat less that the $795,000 paid out earlier in the week in settlement of The “Walk-On” v Rude Boys case.

I know what many of you are thinking….

Does this mean Wi-Fi will also be available in those notorious All-Aluminum Zones in the far corners of what someone once called THE Most Beautiful Football Venue in Orange County, Bar None.

Those edgy zones which only enjoy human habitation maybe once/twice each Fall. We do not have that answer yet.

BUT…. It (a/k/a Wi-Fi) – is NOW available “in the locker room”.  Including we can assume in The Rude Boys’ ‘Hood.

Our deep inside source did NOT have any update on (1) Smoothie Machines…. (2) New Ping Pong Tables …. or possibly even (3) larger than life wall decals of Beyonce sporting a Tar Heel tatt high on her left quadricep.

When told of all this…. Clemson’s Dabo Swinney yawned and sneered…. “Let me know when they add mini-golf.  Only two-stars are impressed by Wi-Fi.”

At least no one is saying “we added this feature so our young scholar-athletes can study right up to Game Time each Saturday”.   But the most naive of TruBlue Holocaust Deniers are free to assume whatever they please….

With this announcement the bling ball is back in NCState’s court to “Can U Top THIS” with more silly bling? That sound you hear is Wolfpack Club Rainmaker Bobby Purcell texting his short list of Deepest Pocketed NC State Partisans.  He who hesitates is forever doomed to “a minor bowl”.

The appetite demands of semi-literate 17 y/o bluechippers is, alas, insatiable.

    bob, maybe wifi in Kenan stadium has less to do with competing with State college than providing a small convenience to its patrons and athletes. This article points out sports attendance is declining since watching from home is much more convenient, so its good business sense to attract fans this way http://nyti.ms/28YeBcS

    there’s no press release from UNC, so it looks like you’re making it a bigger deal than anyone else. and don’t worry about your tax dollars: UNC athletics looks to be in good financial shape http://bit.ly/1VVL7gi

    also why did you try to ban me? would you like others to just agree with you on this site or are you just not a fan of free speech?

      I “tried” to “ban you”…. HUH? Last time I banned anyone was over 10 years ago and involved a nasty comment about my mother. BUT, if “banning you” will score you points with your buddies I will do so. Let me know.
      .
      My source re: the Wi-Fi was a copy of an internal email within the UNCAthDept announcing the installation. Choosing what I write about is based on what interests me for any number of reasons. The Recruiting Bling War interests me. …. “Recruiting” itself does NOT interest me but it probably does interest you.
      .
      The email about Wi-Fi did not mention “within the stadium” but only “in the locker room”. An AD friend of mine told me several years ago that Wi-Fi-ing a stadium was a VERY expensive project… but one many schools are considering to attract fans back to games. If I’m not mistaken none of the recruiting bling at any school involves “tax dollars” but simply Fat Cats anteing up whatever it takes.

        bob, how convenient my IP address was banned after I left a comment that doesn’t suit your rhetoric. but anyway…

        it’s distasteful to refer to recruiting as a “war”, you should have more respect for our veterans.

        write about whatever you please, but don’t get your feelings hurt if someone calls out your hypocrisy. what I find interesting is your interest in locker rooms and athletic depts purchases only as it pertains to the shade of blue on the shirts of their players.

        I’m sure you were cc’d/forwarded that email about wifi installation by a very high up AD. You sound like you rub elbows with all the right people.

        P.S. “using” quotations “is not” your strong “suit”

          I will attribute what you consider “banning” to recent major malware issues. Be grateful you didn’t get the porn link that many readers got. You don’t seem very happy here; but you are welcome to stay and comment or not.
          .
          Thanks for letting me write about whatever I please. If you have any “friends” who are fans of other area schools they might attest to my 18 year history of calling out foolishness regardless of the jersey color. Ask any State Fans about “The Hindenburg Hangar” or “charging stations” or Frau Yow. That said, UNCCH IS a very fertile source of foolishness lately.
          .
          No, it wasn’t an AD but it could have been.
          .
          ellipses …….. are my strong suit. ” ” ” are my addiction. …. re: your war / veterans remark? REALLY!

    With this new “toy” I can imagine a group of deep snappers assembling in a far corner of the locker room binge watching the video of Paulina Gretzky making her way to the US Open scorers tent. The mind reels, does it not?

      I assume they will use it (Wi-Fi) to look up the Periodic Table and to critique the Great Books Of The Western World …. No ???
      .
      OK… and maybe Best Lesbian Billygoat Porn too.

        I’m sure it’s a toss up between watching Paulina videos and reading Look Homeward Angel. ?

        This will make it easier for the next “Marvin” on their roster to tweet from the locker room.

          The mind reels at the possibilities.
