Tar Heels in the NY Times

In case you missed it...Maybe once they will highlight our academic strengths?

My favorite part...

Eight miles to the northeast, on the manicured campus of Duke University, an incongruous tent city called Krzyzewskiville was functioning one day early this month as impromptu housing for aspirants waiting in line for the limited number of free student tickets, which aren’t given out until game days...This line, for the game with North Carolina scheduled for Feb. 7, had formed on Jan. 2. Wearing a blue Duke ski cap and wrapped in a blanket, Ms. Stansbury sat in a lawn chair at the front of the line. She planned to switch off with friends and go to class and to Duke’s other home basketball games — the Duke student government has an elaborate list of rules for holding a place in line — but she expected to ride it out. “It’s part of the Duke experience,” she said cheerfully. I bet it's not her$46,000. Go Duke.

And the challenge:
“There’s more energy here than anywhere in the country,” Scott Eren, a sophomore political science major from Durham, said through deep-blue lips. In addition to blue face paint, he wore devil’s horns.
