South Carolina and North Carolina play tonight to kick off the college football season.  While this Battle of the Carolinas is compelling for a number of reasons, I think the New York Post is reaching on this one just a bit in the subheadline.  Either the Post is mistaken, or there are actually only 49 states in the union.  And for that matter - what about the Dakotas?

UNC Football: It’s recap time… South Carolina
