For roughly the past three years and some odd months, I have dedicated my time almost entirely to this paper. I have driven literally hundreds of miles to cover stories, sacrificed my free time, my relationships and often my grades to serve as an editor, and declared myself a DTHer through thick and thin.
I have been to more press conferences in my life than I care to remember, not because the number is so high, but because they are usually pretty boring affairs.
Was it ever going to be anyone else?

After UNC men's basketball head coach Roy Williams announced his retirement on Thursday, senior writer Brian Keyes reached out to several previous sports editors of The Daily Tar Heel to ask them about their thoughts on the moment and their memories of the Hall of Fame coach. Here's what they had to say.
GREENVILLE, N.C. — Coming into Tuesday night's game against No. 8 East Carolina following a sweep at the hands of N.C. State, the No. 21 North Carolina baseball team was looking for a way to change its momentum.
GREENVILLE, N.C. — The No. 21 North Carolina baseball (13-10, 8-7) team lost to No. 8 East Carolina (18-5,0-0), 11-10, on Tuesday night after an eighth inning collapse that saw the Tar Heels squander a four-run lead in the eighth inning to lose on a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth.
The North Carolina men's basketball team bruised and battered its way through three games in three nights and in the end, it ran out of juice.
The North Carolina men's basketball team lost in the ACC Tournament semifinals to Florida State, 69-66, in a game that saw the Tar Heels overcome another slow start, only to ultimately fail in a close-fought comeback attempt in the second half.
Roy Williams makes a lot of sacrifices to have his teams play the style he wants.
Annihilation. There is no other word. Complete and utter annihilation.
Rejoice, Chapel Hill. Moments like these have been so few and far between — you should take time to appreciate what you have just witnessed.
In the rivalry matchup to end the season, the North Carolina men's basketball team (16-9, 10-6 ACC) dominated Duke (11-11, 9-9 ACC) from start to finish in a 91-73 win. Led by three different players scoring 18 points apiece, the Tar Heels played one of their most complete games of the season in their last game of the year in the Dean E. Smith Center.
What a strange season it has been for the North Carolina men's basketball team.
Hope is a powerful thing.
The North Carolina men's basketball team (15-8, 9-5 ACC) defeated No. 11 Florida State, 78-70, in the team's best win of the season, behind a career-high 20 points from Walker Kessler, all to give head coach Roy Williams his 900th career win.
With the regular season almost finished, the North Carolina men's basketball team has yet to have a signature win against one of the top five teams in the ACC.
Despite a new head coach, not much has changed for the North Carolina baseball team heading into this season's opening weekend on Friday.
North Carolina basketball is known for 60 years of excellence, and for playing a beautiful, unselfish game. Usually that generosity stops short of handing the opposing team the ball. Even the ever-magnanimous Dean Smith would probably have wagered that would be a bridge too far.
In what may just be the most volatile men's college basketball season in living memory, one clear trend has emerged: if you want to be good, you need a team of veterans. Take a look at the teams ranked in the AP Top 25 poll — few teams have true first-year players in their rotation, fewer still with a first-year who starts. Gonzaga (with the exception of future top-three pick Jalen Suggs), Baylor, Villanova — the top three teams in the country — are all composed of experienced, veteran players.
