The UNC scheduling issues,
I'm trying to recall some facts about the rescheduling of the tarhole game from 2010. I was talking with a tarhole recently who said that our Athletic Dept isn't receptive to SC playing NC anymore in football.
From what I remember:
We scheduled a home and home series with unc for '07 and '10.
unc asked to push it back so they could play lsu in '10.
We pushed it back to '13.
Sometime in '12, Eric Hyman was approached by the unc AD to cancel the game, Hyman said no.
As part of the deal to move the game back with ESPN, we got the season opener against unc in '13 and '15.
Hyman and Tanner have asked to additionally schedule games with unc, unc has declined.
Am I missing or off on any of this?
"to be honest with you, if you just graded it out, we won in every phase of the game,” Swinney said. “We lost on the scoreboard."
