    That’s interesting, because the accounts I’ve heard/read suggest that the Southern game was characterized by runs/laterals while the Yankees were the first to introduce the forward pass.Report

    As a Tar Heel, I welcome this news but it only somewhat makes up for UNC’s loses to State. Also, Congrats to coach Roy Williams his 600th career victory.Report
