Subject: Man, what a tough season

Dear Bubba,

I hope this finds you and your friends and family well.
3-9 was tough, I know that season was hell.
Overall I understand and I’m feeling fine.
We had 19 season-ending injuries, and a MASH unit O-line.

Anyway, I wanted you to know I still support the program.
You got the NCAA off our back, so glad we’re past that sham.
Glad we have basketball to look forward to, how do you think we’ll do?
After last year, I don’t care, just proud of that Carolina Blue.

But football is my first love, and I’ll see you at Cal.
I’m hoping that we can connect, and we can be pen pals.
I’m renewing season tickets, next year I’m getting six.
Looking forward to a healthy team, I know its gonna be sick.

I’m holding out hope for brighter days ahead.
We’re gonna take the Coastal out behind the woodshed.
Knowing what we went through this year, it can’t be that bad.
Carolina’s biggest football fan, Chad.

Bubba,

Nice to see you at the Rams Club event today.
You didn’t recognize me when I introduced myself, so I walked away.
I thought you’d be a little bit taller in person.
I also thought last season’s results wouldn’t worsen.

27 plays, one first down, 3 picks in the first half?
All me and dad could do was sit in the seats and laugh.
Do you think its possible that the HUNH is maybe no longer novel?
Its harder in this economy to pay to watch this team wobble.

I was already concerned with Larry’s thoughts on CTE.
After watching today’s game I wonder if he has the brain injury.
I’ll always support our players, but sometimes he makes it harder.
I can see why he was hesitant to name a quarterback starter.

Any, its week 1, things happen least we covered the spread.
We’ll get the Pirates next week and then start to turn some heads.
I’m a little concerned, but want a little ROI.
Still a Tar Heel til I die.

BUBBA,

WELL THERE’S SOME SHIT I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SEE
AND I’VE BEEN COMING TO GAMES SINCE 1993.
THEY SAY THE BIGGEST PROGRAM KILLER IS APATHY
THAT’S RIGHT, YOU ALREADY REDUCED SEATING CAPACITY

ECU, HUH? THE TEAM THAT JUST LOST TO A&T
HAS FIVE FBS WINS UNDER SCOTTIE MONTGOMERY.
TWO OF THOSE WERE UCONN, I DON’T THINK THOSE COUNT
WHILE YOU’RE DOING COUNTING, WE NEED TO PUT FEDORA OUT.

ITS ME OR HIM, BUBBA, WHO IS IT GONNA BE?
I HAVE A DEGREE FROM ANOTHER UNIVERSITY.
THEY FIRED A COACH FOR GOING 10-3.
AND LOOK AT THEM NOW, THEY PLAYED IN THE CFP.

MY FRIENDS AND I HAVE TROUBLE GETTING EXCITED ABOUT GAMES
WE’RE YOUNG ALUMNI, 30 YEARS OLD, HAVEN’T MET UP SINCE NOTRE DAME
WE’RE REALLY BUMMED OUT ABOUT THE FOOTBALL PROGRAM
SUCKS DRIVING TO A GAME, THEN AT HALFTIME, WE SCRAM

I GUESS YOU PROBABLY DON’T REALLY NEED MY MONEY.
I SAW THAT BUYOUT FOR FEDORA, MAN THAT ISN’T FUNNY.
HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO LET US TAKE THESE L’S?
AND LET THIS CTE TRUTHER DRAG OUR PROGRAM STRAIGHT TO HELL?

FUNNY THING ABOUT FANS IS THAT WE REMEMBER LOSSES
AND SOMETIMES IT MIGHT BE CONTINGENT ON HIS BOSSES
TO MAKE AN EASY DECISION, ONE THATS NOT TOUGH TO BROACH
I THINK ITS TIME YOU FIRE YOUR ———————
