Letter: ​Fedora is to blame for loss against USC


I read the articles in The Daily Tar Heel and find them a little off in terms of our loss to South Carolina. Yes, Marquise Williams didn’t have a good game but the real reason we lost this game is not Marquise... it is the poor play calling. I like Fedora but please give us all a break. You have a tailback who is averaging over ten yards a carry in a game and he only is given the ball 12 times the entire game?

You are running out of time, have three minutes and 40 seconds left, and you are on the 3-yard line with third and fourth down left to try to get in the end zone and, if you get a touchdown, to be ahead by three and you choose to pass the ball by a quarterback that is having an off day?

You leave Hood on the sidelines for this crucial play? This is not a game lost by Marquise... frankly speaking, this is a game lost by Fedora’s refusal to play Hood more and to not use him in those two downs. I am quite sure we would have garnered three yards in two plays with him in.
