    I guess he won't coach at Historic Kinnick Stadium.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I guess they figured they didn't want another Ohio State type situation to develope.

    Re: North Carolina fires Butch Davis

    Here's what I've heard from the local ESPN radio channel, and the local news sports guy. The term of one of the head hanchos at the UNC board of trustees was up. He was a huge pro-Butch Davis guy and would not let the university fire him. The new members of the board of trustees apparently weren't so pro-Butch Davis and they decided to reevaluate the situation today in a closed meeting. In that meeting they decided that the university's image was the top priority and decided that canning the guy was the best for the university. As far as I've heard so far, nothing new had developed in the investigation of UNC's football program.

    Hell, I could recruit with his "resources."

    Also: I'm guessing sweater vests are somehow involved.

    As a current NC State grad student, the only thing that sadden's me about this situation is the end of NCSU's Tom O'Brien's perfect 4-0 record against Butch. Hopefully this fall brings a 5-0 record against UNC-CHeat.

    Actually, I take that back. I wouldn't wish this situation on any student athlete that did play by the rules the whole time, but has to miss "what could have been" of last season and this coming season, just because of some shady characters and rule breakers.

    Holy bad timing batman. If he is a slime ball, they should have fired him immediately after last season.

    Butch is more greasy than 10W30 oil.

    Re: North Carolina fires Butch Davis

    It will be interesting if any recruits decide to cut and run. We offered Nate Dortch, could be a possibility.
