The UNC football team was embarrassed by East Carolina for the second straight year, losing 70-41 on Saturday.  The Heels were outplayed in nearly every aspect of the game, and were simply outclassed by the Pirates.

The thing is, UNC didn’t play all that much worse on Saturday than they had been playing all season.  The difference was that they were playing an opponent who took advantage of mistakes.  It certainly helped that there was no shortage of mistakes from the Tar Heel squad all afternoon long.
