No lineup changes for Tar Heels after loss

Coming off the first loss of the season and out of the top 25 for the first time, North Carolina's not going to panic.

Tar Heels coach Butch Davis said he won't make any changes for the sake of making changes and the lineup that lost to Georgia Tech remain in tact against Virginia on Saturday.

"We're playing the best players that we've got," Davis said. "The worst thing that we could do is try to do some kind of a magical, hodge-podge."

Davis pointed out again the Heels need to clean up their mistakes on third down, on both sides of the ball, and take better care of the ball. The Heels went 1 of 11 on third-down conversions, compared to 10 of 19 for Georgia Tech.

The three turnovers, compared to none for GT, continued the rudimentary trend that when UNC has a negative turnover margin, it loses. They were minus-3 on Saturday and minus-12 in their five losses in 2008.

im starting to see how this all works. when UNC wins there are fans all over the place claiming there love for the heels. when they lose no one is around. no one has even tried to defend their team in the blogs about the loss. is one bad game all it takes for the fair weathers to jump ship, lmao

Same thing happens in basketball, baseball, etc. with Heels fans.

When they win, they're the "best in the country, 'Dook sucks', national championship-bound, BS BS etc".

When they lose (which they will many times this year in football), they disappear into thin air.

I'm not which is more striking in it's stupidity. The fact that you called us Tar Heel fans juvenile while using the very juvenile tarholes, or the fact you actually think they may be more delusional than Wolfpack fans.
