Most readers I assume have heard about UNC-CH coach Fedora’s over-excited statement from Wednesday night. When asked about the State rivalry, Fedora apparently exclaimed ““I don’t want to talk about [the rivalry] too much because I don’t want to legitimize their program.” Yeah whatever. I actually don’t care that much about his dumb comments. What I do care about is the mistake in the N & O’s online and print coverage:
UNC fans are eager for the Heels to break a five-game losing streak against N.C. State – a streak that represents UNC’s longest stretch of futility in the series since losing five consecutive games from 1978 through 1982.
State actually won from 1988-1992.
And State did not win 5 straight from 1978-1982, so they got it doubly wrong. Is it asking too much for our “home-town” paper to get basic, easy-to-check facts correct?
