North Carolina learned its a ways from where it wants to be during a measuring stick game against South Carolina. ROBERT WILLETT
CHAPEL HILL — In case you missed it during this long holiday weekend, here is my story from the day after North Carolina’s 27-10 defeat against South Carolina last Thursday night. The Tar Heels described their game against the Gamecocks as a measuring stick.
For one night, at least, UNC didn’t measure up to the No. 6 team in the country. Larry Fedora after the game said his team has a “long way” to go. But he said on Monday here during his weekly press conference that he thought the Tar Heels weren’t all that far away.
We’ll explore later on why both of his statements might be right.
