Extra Points Wednesday


The 1978-87 epoch of Carolina football has been overlooked, under-appreciated and often ignored simply because of the star-crossed public persona of its head coach, a bespectacled former math teacher whose hair turned from brown to white during his decade in Chapel Hill. The fact is the Dick Crum era produced the last ACC championship won by a Tar Heel football team. It's fitting that those 1980 Tar Heels be recognized this weekend on the occasion of the silver anniversary of a dramatic goal-line stand at Clemson and a 6-0 record that won the ACC.
