Yep. I'm here to take all the crap. Bring it on
Every year we all get excited. The reports from camp are great! The recruiting is actually very good. This will be the year!!!!
But here's the bottom line. We are a middle of the pack football program. We will probably (in reality) be about 5-7 this year. But in my HEART, at the beginning of each season, we are destined to be 12-0 and at the begining of each game we are GOING TO KICK SOME BUTT! But that's what a true blue Tar Heel (notice: 2 words) is and that's how we think!
Here's what I hate more than anything. I love Coach Bunting. He's an alumni, he bleeds Carolina Blue, he is as loyal as me . He runs a clean and ethical program. Heck we have 4 starters from last year that are not playing this year for one reason or another (bad grades, bad conduct...) I appreciate that SO much and I'm so proud of the fact that we do run a clean program unlike so many others. But...he's had 6 years to build a program back and it's not happening. Folks have been calling for his head for two years now and I can see that it will probably happen this year, and that makes my heart hurt for him. I wish he could be the man. I really do.
What I am left wondering this morning is this:
"Is Rutgers that good? Are we that bad?"
Our defense looked so weak. The jury is still out in my opinion about our QB. I thought he did a very admirable job leading the team at times, but the two crucial INT's killed us. From what I have heard, INTs are what cost him his job at Nebraska two years ago. We'll see I guess. The rest of our schedule just gets tougher, so it could be a long year.
But I'll be right here anyway. Wearing my Carolina Blue, cheering my heart out, and praying for something to happen that makes them want to win as badly as I do
I am taking some solace in the fact that Duke lost 10-0 to the Richmond Spiders !!
How did everyone else fare yesterday?
