The North Carolina defense spent too much time on the field, as they had to defend 76 offensive plays run by the Georgia Tech offense, and the results were a disappointing 33-7 loss to the Yellow Jackets on Saturday. The Tar Heels offense had opportunities to answer, but never could convert good field position gained by turnovers into points on the scoreboard.
Here is what North Carolina coach Larry Fedora said afterward:
Struggles of the offense: “Where didn’t the offense bogged down, I don’t think we executed one thing offensively today. In fact, I don’t think we did anything right on offense today.”
Injuries affecting the continuity offensively: “We’re going to put out 11 guys, and those 11 guys are expected to do their job. They practice each week and compete, so they can’t worry about continuity because there is none. ”
The play of the defense: “We gave up too many third-and-long plays. That’s all there is to it. We created turnovers, but never converted them into points. Our defense had to defend 76 offensive plays, and when the offense couldn’t extend drives in the second half, we were pretty much done from that point.”
