UNC's Davis: "Our team wants to be here"

North Carolina football coach Butch Davis isn’t buying into the suggestion that the Tar Heels aren ‘t happy to be in Charlotte for their second straight appearance in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

“Absolutely our team wants to be here,” Davis said in advance of the Saturday game against Pittsburgh. “We’re trying to build a program and make going to bowl games a yearly event.

“Certainly coming to Charlotte, where a lot of people might say they’re disappointed because they were here last year, in some respects that’s good for us because so many of our kids are from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia. Their families can come and be a part of this. I think it’s very good.”

The Tar Heels arrived in Charlotte late Monday and held their first workout Tuesday afternoon at Charlotte Latin. Until this week, Davis said the Tar Heels had not had two days in a row of practice since the regular season ended due to exams.

“Now we can catch back up,” Davis said. “The kids will get back in the routine.”

Is 2 straight years in the Car Crap Bowl "making progress?" Is losing AGAIN to cellar-dwellars UVA and State "progress"?

No, it's not. Then tell me: why do the Holes think they're going to win the ACC every preseason?
