Saturday night at UNC vs. Duke, Michael Jordan announced Tar Heels football will be the next team to wear the Jordan brand — after Michigan football.
However, what really captured everyone’s attention were the words of inspiration MJ spoke at halftime — “The ceiling is the roof.”
What did Jordan really mean by that?
Did he just misspeak, or is he actually wiser than any of us could ever be?

Like, who are we to argue with His Airness?
Let's be real. If MJ came up to you and said "the ceiling is the roof" you'd be like... pic.twitter.com/SODIcif0Lu— Cooper J (@nomopain2318) March 5, 2017
Despite all the confusion, UNC fans remembered what was important.
Jordan was being roasted right and left.

Someone had it figured out, though. Perhaps folks were confused because MJ was speaking from inside Dean Smith Center, but he was talking about UNC football, not basketball.

THERE WAS A METHOD TO HIS MADNESS.
Good luck, Tar Heels.
The ceiling is the roof.
