Welcome back from Labor Day -- hope yall had a good one.
I'm doing an online chat today from 12 noon to 1 p.m. on www.charlotteobserver.com -- just go there sometime in that hour and you'll be able to click onto the chat. We'll be talking sports, of course -- Panthers, Bobcats, college football and so on.
In the meantime, I wrote a column about the often controversial Bruton Smith for today's newspaper and online and went to Atlanta this weekend to write several columns on the Tar Heels' heart-stopping loss to LSU and their NCAA problems.
In Thursday's newspaper and online, columnist Tom Sorensen and I have our annual "dueling columns" to predict the Panthers 2010 season.
