Heels hope to avoid Torbush ambush

Carl Torbush may be the world's foremost authority on the perils of playing Division I-AA Furman when you're the head coach of a beleaguered major-conference program. He was on North Carolina's sideline the afternoon of Oct. 30, 1999. The final score at Kenan Stadium that day: Furman 28, UNC 3. Only 33,000 were there to see the Tar Heels football program sink to a new low. Maybe that was a good thing. Perhaps not. (Greensboro News & Record)
