All Panthers fans are currently buying up all of the super tailgate specials at Bojangles in preparation to celebrate Matt Rhule's departure to Oklahoma

Looks like the celebration may be premature, but get the biscuit specials anyway if only for the comforting nutrition.

Rhule ought to grab one of the college jobs that come open as the coaching carousel continues to spin. He's managed to qualify as a college coach NFL flameout much more quietly than the likes of Petrino, Spurrier, Saban, et al.

Marcus Freeman got the Notre Dame job without having Brent Musburger fawn over him for several seasons as Bob Davie did when he was the Irish DC and rumored successor to Lou Holtz. Musburger's adoration condemned various players and coaches to future mediocrity such as Davie, Ron Powlus, Brian Bosworth and AJ McCarron. A few players such as the Honey Badger managed to escape Brent's curse despite being showered with on-air roses and bonbons.

This just in: the length of the Bojangles express line has doubled in the wake of UNC's roundball schooling of Michigan.

In Chapel Hill, they're raiding the local Whole Foods for all the of wine and cheese. My in-laws were at the game last night, so I'll have to check in on them this morning to see if they survived the 9:15 tip off time. Thankfully for their old hearts, it was an easy win
