That’s what North Carolina deserves. That’s what college football deserves, too. We deserve to not have that program, currently in the middle of two enormous and distinctly unrelated scandals, foisted upon us. The college football season is a three-month-long celebration of sport. It’s confetti, strobe lights and a kazoo. It’s a party. It’s a punch bowl.

Lot of dots to connect there — pock marks, really. Davis is gone. Maybe he doesn’t know it yet, but sometimes people like that are the last to know. He’s in the moment. He’s not thinking of his future. Hey, I’ll think of it for him, and what I think is this: He’s gone. He’s gone, and he’ll finish his career as an NFL assistant.
