    ....... as it was anticipated by NC's opponents in the 1977 championship match .... and Al McGuire's Marquette eventually won the championship match 67-59:

    North Carolina edged on top 45-43 with 13:48 left and a short time later went to its vaunted four corners offense - a tactic McGuire had anticipated and which came to naught.

    The Warriors sagged underneath to take away the back-door play and, directed by Lee, who scored 19 points and was named the game's outstanding player, were patient on offense. Over the next 12 minutes, thanks in part to its own slowdown tactics, the Tar Heels scored only four points.

    "We should pay attention to that man behind the curtain."

      No strategy is infallible. Look at how the 49ers trashed the Packers in this year's playoffs. But you can be every other NFL team (and arguably, already, the Ravens) have studied the heck out of the way they used QB Kaepernick. It will not be as effective going forward. Now, if Dems could just figure out how to kill the GOP's legislative stalls. Sagging to take away the figurative back door? Sounds about right to me.
