Apparently, the awesome billboard was not enough celebration of mediocrity. North Carolina finished 8-4. They lost to both Duke and Wake Forest and gave up 68 points to Georgia Tech at home. They were ineligible to face Florida State in the ACC Title game due to NCAA sanctions. Nonetheless, Tar Heels players were “SMART, FAST and PHYSICAL” enough to earn a giant ring for their efforts.
Printing “8-4” on the ring was a genius move. There’s no way in hell players are going to be able to sell those on E-bay.
