Tar Heel Mania is a blog dedicated exclusively to sports events relevant to Tar Heel fans. It was created by Mike White, a graduate school journalism student in North Carolina. Mike has been a rabid Tar Heel fanatic since the age of eight, introduced to the religion by the likes of Mack Brown, Dean Smith, Rasheed Wallace, Jerry Stackhouse, Leon Johnson, Brian Simmons, Antawn Jamison, Dante Calabria, Greg Ellis, Chris Keldorf, and many more. His passion only grew when he became a student at Carolina and endured the sporting doldrums of Carl Torbush, John Bunting, and Matt Doherty (all of whom he has neither completely blamed nor completely forgiven).
Now, instead of expressing his love for the Heels through projectile furniture in the genral direction of his TV, he expresses it through this blog. That’s pretty much the reason why he is (and by proxy, you are) here.
