e-mails, fliers littering campus and unbelievable campaign promises that no one could possibly deliver.
This year, there is actually one promise that caught my eye: Carolina Athletic Association presidential candidate Michael Songer's plan to take away Carolina Fever's seats at basketball games.
The reason that promise interested me while I scanned the various platforms during class is because I have a long-standing dislike for Carolina Fever.
The organization is 500-strong and, admittedly, it does put butts in the seats during the fall and some winter sports. But of course, there's also the 10-sport spring season.
A lot of those 10 sports are hurting for fan support in ways the fall sports never have. Check out a softball game or tennis match, and you'll find mostly parents and other athletes cheering the Tar Heels on.
As far as I can tell, Fever just stops existing as soon as the men's basketball season is over.
"Fever markets itself as an easy way to get basketball tickets," Songer said, adding that Fever starts targeting incoming freshmen at C-TOPS.
If Songer gets elected -- and that's probably a big "if" because any reasonable Fever member will turn out to vote against him -- taking those 169 seats away could bring the end of Fever.
Songer doesn't agree with me, but I suspect that members won't be as eager to support volleyball when they're not earning seats to see Kris Lang.
