The 2017 college football season has barely begun, but North Carolina football already has two losses to its name.
It’s a disappointing start for the Tar Heels, who lost to Cal then came up on the wrong side of a record-setting Lamar Jackson performance against Louisville. The start earned North Carolina a spot among “college football’s 10 most disappointing teams” according to USA Today.
“Losing to California in the opener was an eye-opener,” wrote Paul Myerberg. “Now 0-2 following a loss to Louisville, the Tar Heels resemble a team that has little hope of reaching bowl eligibility. What’s been striking is the sour play of the defense. Thought to be the strong link as the offense broke in a new quarterback, UNC has given up 1,174 yards on 8.53 yards per play through two games.”
North Carolina plays at Old Dominion on Saturday.
