Is this an April Fools joke? Or is someone reporting this for real?

According to the report I found, UNC has two candidates in mind, neither named Hunter.

Well done, roto And you didn't even use the sarcasm pink.

I suppose we could lose all our coaches and all our players at any given time but it does get tiresome to expect the worst case scenario every time some program farts. With a third of basketball players and counting transferring, along with the SCOTUS case this week, the NCAA landscape is under seismic shift. Hang in there.

My first thought when I saw the UNC news was "so along with losing our AD and football coach to Kansas, now we're gonna lose our basketball coach to UNC..."
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Funny, around here everyone has forgotten it's April Fools Day because it's OPENING DAY.

Other than the bizarre April snow we got this morning... That was like a joke...

I thought the chance that a blue blood like UNC would consider Hunter based on his performance at Tulane so far was too far fetched even for a joke :lol: And I knew it was April Fool’s Day because it’s also my wife’s birthday and there are consequences for forgetting that 8)
