N.C. football schools in ACC slump
Tue Jul 26, 2005

"North Carolina is probably always first and foremost going to be a basketball school," said North Carolina quarterback Matt Baker, "but there's no reason football can't be up closer." Since coach Mack Brown left the Tar Heels for Texas after the 1997 season, North Carolina's ACC schools have a total of five winning conference records.
