Before he died, Coach Smith wanted to make sure his players (specifically his lettermen players) knew how much they meant to him, so he made sure to leave them a little present in his will!

So what exactly did he leave them? Well, Dean made sure a letter was sent to 180 of his former players containing a check for $200 and a note to "enjoy a dinner out"!

Awwwww! How sweet is that!!

Former UNC player Jim Dempsey posted a picture of the letter he and many others received this morning, and we're sure more than a few players were fighting back some waterworks when this came in the mail!

Girl power meets Nintendo Power!

The video game company is celebrating Women's History Month by posing several of its classic characters as Rosie the Riveter!

For you kids out there, Rosie the Riveter may sound like someone you could choose to play in Mario Kart, but she's actually the character portrayed in the classic "We Can Do It!" posters!

The female empowerment icon was created during WWII as women took on many jobs traditionally worked by men while they were away at war.

Sure, those jobs didn't include hunting down Metroids or exploding on cue, but what the heck! Anything that sheds more light on equality — especially for the Wii demographic!

Nice job, Nintendo! See the rest of the ladies (above)!

Wow. Awkward. So sooooo awkward.

When it comes to important parent-child conversations, none is more dreaded than explaining the facts of life, the birds and the bees, the horizontal hustle.

It must be pretty uncomfortable for everyone involved, though we're still having trouble deciding who it's worse for… the kids or the parents. Or us!!
