Dear Butch, Please bring back Tailback U

During a 12-year run from 1972 until 1984, UNC had at least one, and sometimes two, 1,000-yard rushers in each season. During that stretch, the Tar Heels claimed the ACC regular season title on several occasions. But for fans of a consistent running game here at North Carolina, those have long looked like the good old days. For many years now, the wheels have been gone from the UNC rushing attack.
