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 [...]

Independence Bowl: UNC vs Missouri

What: AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl Where: Independence Stadium, Shreveport, LA When: Monday, December 26th, 5:00 PM TV: ESPN2 Records: UNC 7-5; Missouri 7-5

The official end of the Butch Davis era.

The question facing UNC heading into this game is not so much how the Heels match-up with Missouri but one of focus and [...]

UNC To Play In Independence Bowl

Well that was weird.

Friday’s Football News and Notes

Yes, there’s plenty still happening in the world of college football.

** The UNC coaching search is in full swing. The list of reported serious candidates includes head coaches James Franklin of Vanderbilt, Kevin Sumlin of Houston, Larry Fedora of Southern Mississippi, Butch Jones of Cincinnati, and Skip Holtz of South Florida; Auburn offensive coordinator [...]

UNC 30, Tennessee 27 (2OT)

Well, that’s fitting - a bizarre finish to a bizarre football season.

UNC was dead in the water after blowing a second-half lead against Tennessee and having Dwight Jones drop a pass in the hands on 4th-and-20. The Heels forced a 3-and-out but had the ball at their own 20 with just 31 seconds to [...]

Music City Bowl: UNC vs. Tennessee

What: Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl Where: LP Field, Nashville, TN When: Thursday, December 30th, 6:30 PM TV: ESPN Records: UNC 7-5, Tennessee 6-6

Alternate title: The So You Thought You Could Duck Us Bowl

UNC To Music City Bowl vs Tennessee

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Could this be a game against the very team who earlier this year decided to hand Dick Baddour a check for three quarters of a million dollar to not play UNC in a home and home series over the next two seasons? You know the NCAA Tournament [...]

Pitt 19 UNC 17


Take your pick of the boneheaded mistakes in this one. It is fairly amazing that this team has found ways to make the worst mistakes it could possibly make at the most inconvenient time. T.J. Yates interceptions on the opponent’s goal line. Getting the exact same penalty called two straight plays. Passes hitting receivers [...]

Car Care Bowl: UNC vs #17 Pittsburgh

What: Meineke Car Care Bowl Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC When: Saturday, December 26th, 4:30 PM TV: ESPN Records: UNC 8-4, Pitt 9-3

UNC heads back to Charlotte for a second straight year, the by-product of bowl officials jockeying for a profit and the Heels’ complete inability to take care of business in [...]

Heels: Oh, Yeah We Are Thrilled To Be Going To Charlotte Again

They say all the right things because…well…what else do you expect them to say?

“No, we are pretty pissed at the fact we got shafted.”

Of course Kendric Burney, for his part, understands they sort of did this to themselves:

Junior cornerback Kendric Burney said the Heels don’t have anyone to blame but themselves after [...]

Heels Headed To Car Bowl; Will Face Pitt

And let me just say, that darn well better win. Why? Think about it, what could possibly be worse than having lost to a crappy NC State team this season? Also losing to the one legitimate team NC State happen to win a game against.  Yeah, that would really suck.  So it is on this [...]
