Tomorrow is the big memorial service for Dean Smith at the Dean Dome. Here's what I'd like to see:
- A discussion of what Dean Smith meant to the university and the community.
- Discussion of the shootings of the 3 Islamic students, and how that, combined with the death of Dean, marks a watershed for Chapel Hill
- An active admissal of how fucked up the academic-athletic scandal has been and the extent to which it endangers the credibility of the university.
- Invocations of Bill Friday and a discussion of how Tom Ross getting forced out of the Chancellorship and the twin threat of Art Pope's ascension threaten UNC to its core.
- Some mention of Gene Nichol and the attempt to close the Poverty Center
- Carol Folt in the driver's seat, and Roy Williams in a supporting and subsidiary role.
I wouldn't bet on any of this, beyond the first.
