Larry Fedora and his players have been counting down the days until the N.C. State game. CHUCK LIDDY
CHAPEL HILL — Larry Fedora has twice made it clear, publicly, that he has been counting down the days until North Carolina’s game against N.C. State. You might recall a post right here, back in late April, that detailed Fedora’s comments to a group of UNC boosters in Charlotte.
At that booster club appearance, a member of the audience asked Fedora how much emphasis he’d place on the Tar Heels’ games against the Wolfpack. Fedora said, “There’s going to be an emphasis.” But he also said, “I don’t want to talk about [the rivalry] too much because I don’t want to legitimize their program.”
