1981 meeting flattened Heels

It will be the same for probably thousands of UNC fans who remember when their football team was almost as good as the basketball program. It was Oct. 24, 1981 -- the day the Tar Heels dropped a shot at the national championship for the second straight year. (Raleigh News & Observer)
