The golden lining of a possible Bowl Championship Series bid for the North Carolina Tar Heels was lined with bad stuffing before the season even started. In the season opener, UNC was without 12 players, most of whom were potential first-rounders on defense.
With serious investigations going on surrounding the eligibility of UNC football players, how could head coach Butch Davis sit there, publicly, without a smirk or a grin, and act like he knew nothing of what his players were involved in?
Seriously, HC Davis is involved with these kids more every day than their own families. Yet, he stood there and prodded along like he was assisting the NCAA with its investigation.
By allowing these football players to break some serious rules, this turkey of a coach risked the UNC Tar Heels' chances at making its first-ever BCS trip.
Entering 2010, UNC was amped due to its spectacular defense which has been one of the best in the country over the last couple of years.
With an experienced starter returning at quarterback in T.J. Yates, the Tar Heels were looking like one of the dark horses to compete for a National Championship.
Unfortunately, some guys got wild and the house came crashing in, right during a party.
Butch Davis, you are a turkey for building up a terrible football program into one that became noteworthy and letting it fall apart by your laissez-faire approach to managing your student-athletes.
