This may be a dumb question, but how did Jeff McInnis wind up with the nickname Touche' ? Is there a story behind that?

I know Jeff McInnis is infamous for having sex with Phil Ford's wife while at Carolina (why he went pro after his junior season) so maybe that has something to do with it...
Phil Ford: "Jeff, you let your guy beat you off the dribble all night!!"
Jeff McInnis: "I was tired from putting it to your wife all morning.."
Phil Ford: "Touche'..."

Ive always been told its a nickname given to him as a child because he resembled "Touche" the turtle.

Jeff banged Phil Ford's wife ??? How did that tidbit of information manage to escape me?

I thought that was common knowledge. It was a big reason he left UNC early. I heard Pretty Rick Fox banged her too.

After doing some Googling, you're right she made her way through several of the Tarheel hoops squad.
... with those kind of benefits, no wonder they get all of the top recruits. :biggrin:

Here is Jeff denying it, but its pretty much a known fact that it happened.
Sometimes the whispers get so loud that one of the subjects goes public to defend his reputation. In 1996, practically everyone in North Carolina had heard the gossip that University of North Carolina point guard Jeff McInnis had been sleeping with Phil Ford's wife. In his book A March to Madness, sportswriter John Feinstein delicately alludes to Duke fans razzing McInnis about "personal animosity between him and assistant coach Phil Ford." As that year's NBA draft neared, McInnis broke the official silence when he told the Charlotte Observer that Orlando Magic staffers had quizzed him about the allegations that he was leaving school early due to the fallout from an affair with Ford's wife. His answer: "Nothing ever happened. She is often hugging players. The Duke people blew the whole thing up."
[quote]Sure, Dean showed some loyalty with the attempted cover up of two Phil Ford DUIs, but when push came to shove Smith chose Jeff McInnis over Ford and when the head coaching job became open at UNC-CH, Ford was overlooked as many times as he was covered up. Twice./[quote]
And the unforgettable Jeff McInnis of UNC banging Phil Ford's wife, leading to this gem of a sign at NC State: "Jeff, have you driven a Ford lately?"

Sorry but I have to post here. Is this really true?????? lol

LOL, after that, if I was Phil, I would've gotten a lot more than 2 DUIs myself, and I don't drink lol.
How did they coexist here then?!?!

I have a good friend who graduated from UNC Chapel Hill, and apparantly it's common knowledge up there that Jeff McInnis did indeed "do the deed" with Ms. Phil Ford.
Now, the Rick Fox thing, thats news to me hahaha!

After a period that he terms "curious discovery" while at UNC, McInnis developed the nickname "Butt Toucher", also shortened to "Toucher"....in an effort to seem more "cultured" he changed it to "Touche"
