The Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: Missouri

Well, wasn’t that special?

I tried to share THF’s optimism in the game preview that UNC would want to finish this trying season on a strong note for interim coach Everett Withers and perform well in a de facto tryout for new coach Larry Fedora. Instead, Tar Heel Nation’s worst fears were realized when, after [...]

Missouri 41 UNC 24

Call me weird, but for some reason this best illustrates how the Butch Davis Era ended tonight in Shreveport.

I understand all the distractions, the upheaval, the fact Everett Withers has been spending most of this time on Zillow and the fact this game is being played in a terrible [...]

UNC Suspends Jones, Reinstatement Pending [UPDATED: Jones Cleared by NCAA]

See update at end of post…

In an NCAA eligibility dance Carolina football fans unfortunately know all too well, UNC has suspended senior wideout Dwight Jones for the Independence Bowl after his appearance on a flier for a New Year’s Eve party with Jones being the featured birthday guest.

From the News and Observer:

“Coach [Everett] [...]

Someone Forgot to Tell Dwight Jones to Stay Off Facebook

Oh no, here we go again.

Another UNC football player may have run afoul over NCAA regulations over - get this - a flier for his own birthday party.

Senior wide receiver Dwight Jones is featured on a flier for a Burlington nightclub that is promoting a New Year’s Eve birthday party in Jones’ honor.

Has Holden Thorp Been Vindicated?

On July 28, UNC Chancellor Holden Thorp took a torch to the Butch Davis era at Carolina, firing the coach after the NCAA levied charges of nine major infractions against the football program and the previously unrevealed plagiarism of work produced by Michael McAdoo came to the forefront. Now, barely 4 1/2 months after that [...]

Withers To Join Ohio St. Staff

Whither Withers? Sorry, had to do it.


WRAL has confirmed that University of North Carolina interim head coach Everett Withers will join the coaching staff at Ohio State.

Withers, who will remain with the Tar Heels through the Independence Bowl on Dec. 26, has been a candidate to join Ohio State head coach [...]

Thanks Coach Withers

At 1 PM today UNC will introduce Larry Fedora as the 37th football coach in school history bringing to an end the “Butch Davis era.” Lost in the shuffle of today’s announcement is the man who, on July 28th, was thrust into the position of interim head coach a mere [...]
