As most of you probably know, among the big rules changes back then included the forward pass, which UNC helped "invent".
Guess Carolina fans can stop bragging about that one, eh? :)
Don't see any reason we should.
The way I heard that story was that the UNC punter, realizing that the oncoming rush was going to squash him like a bug, threw the ball into the air and ran from the field screaming like a little girl. Luckily for UNC, a teammate caught the ball thrown away in panic and scored. So UNC "invented" the forward pass in the same way Isaac Newton invented gravity by letting an apple fall on his head. :)
So Carolina's luck is not a new phenomena? :)
