There is a Carolina blue billboard in Durham, N.C. that reads “#FreePJ.” The sign, which is located off of I-85, refers to North Carolina Tar Heels guard P.J. Hairston, who has been suspended indefinitely.
After a turbulent offseason, Hairston is being investigated by the NCAA for potentially receiving benefits. During a traffic stop over the summer he was ticketed while driving a rental car registered to a Durham party promoter.
As the season carries on, Carolina, and Hairston, are left in limbo wondering if he will play again. Apparently fans have grown restless, and want answers as well.

Oddly enough, this billboard is in the heart of Dookie country.
