Last Thursday, North Carolina and South Carolina kicked off the college football season with a tough interstate rivalry game. As was expected, a lot of eyes were on Jadeveon Clowney, the Gamecocks’ Heisman candidate. In particular, college football fans were outraged when it appeared that UNC’s Kiaro Holts took a major cheap shot by cutting Clowney’s legs:
Today, Tar Heels head coach Larry Fedora offered a bit of a flimsy defense for Holts — he said it was “a poor decision,” but indicated there was also “no malicious intent.”
LF on Holts clip: “There was no malicious intent. He just made a poor choice. He was disciplined like all guys who get personal fouls.”

You’ve seen it — was this fair or foul? Not sure if I’m buying Fedora’s response.

The lone "controversy" from Thursday night's game against South Carolina, well, outside of all the hand-wringing over Jadeveon Clowney's conditioning.UNC's Kiaro Holts clips Clowney at the tail end of a play earning him a personal foul and the disdain of pretty much everyone who saw it.
As you might imagine this drew a strong rebuke from pretty much everyone...

It's that time of year again sports fans. Time for the warriors on the football field to make us proud as we watch them do battle with their opponents in their desire to find gridiron glory. In the process things will happen. Guys will make mistakes. Refs will stupid calls. Beer will be consumed (by us; not the players--hopefully).
In the end there will be a winner...
It was a Fig Thing this weekend, for sure.
Is everyone okay?
After such a buildup to the college football season, several people have sought medical attention after severe adrenaline dumps. Luckily, yesterday was Labor Day, so many Americans did not have to take a sick day from work. If everyone is ready, let’s take a quick look back at the first weekend in college football.
