North Carolina v Duke

The Crow’s Nest in Cameron, which guys like Dick Vitale and Al McGuire both complained about and celebrated, and which Bob Harris referred to in nearly every broadcast, is no more.

It was taken down due to safety concerns and there is now a temporary platform, sans ladders, below where it used to be.

Duke is planning a permanent solution but it won't be in place until next season.

Some great stories in here about Vitale injuring or nearly injuring himself and Bob Harris dangling over some poor woman’s head when he misgauged his exit.
