UNC falls to Miami 27-23: Buck up Heels fans, bowl game still out there

The North Carolina Tar Heels started the season with a top 25 national ranking and high expectations. After falling apart and allowing the Canes to mount a comeback victory Friday afternoon, those two views are far in the rear view rear for the UNC football program.

It’s not just Miami either. This team simply can’t hold on to leads, nor can they sustain momentum throughout any particular ballgame. You can see the talent, you can see the potential, but it’s never quite fulfilled.

The schedule is partially to blame, but the Heels really should be better than 1-5 at the halfway mark and the fans know it. Friday was just another crushing blow to the Chapel Hill faithful.

Still, it get’s easier in the second half and all six games remaining are highly winnable contests. Here’s the remaining schedule for UNC:

  • Sat. Oct 26 – Boston College Eagles
  • Sat. Nov 2 – @ NC State Wolfpack
  • Sat. Nov 9 – Virginia Cavaliers
  • Sat. Nov 16 – @ Pitt Panthers
  • Sat. Nov 23 – Old Dominion Monarchs
  • Sat. Nov 30 – Duke Blue Devils

Buck up Heels fans! I think you can find five wins there to claw your way into a bowl, right? And four of the remaining six are at home.
