The joy of UNC football being back lasted for about less than a quarter last week. While they made it close at the end, the Tar Heels struggled pretty badly against Cal out in Berkeley. Following last year’s 3-9 season, the performance has some fans feeling a little on edge. If there’s any game where the Tar Heels could get (at least temporarily) back on track, you would think it would be against East Carolina.
The Pirates are coming off a loss themselves, but there’s was a little worse. ECU dropped their opened to FCS opponent North Carolina A&T at home. If the Tar Heels can’t win this one, the clouds around the UNC football program are going to darken dramatically.
