Based on what we’ve read about UNC’s football program over the past year, it seems like there’s a lotta work to do in order to ‘change the culture.’ But in my humble opinion this is a good start:
Larry Fedora has spent less time talking about “changing the culture” at UNC than recent Tar Heel coaches.
But Fedora is definitely changing the dress code culture. For starters, he’s outlawed earrings at football functions and implemented a no caps while indoors policy.
“That’s just the way I was raised,” Fedora said Monday. “You didn’t wear a hat in the house. That’s not what a man does, and I sure as heck couldn’t get an earring. I’d have to moved out of the house.”
Never forget the time I sat behind the Florida State bench during a night game. The bling was downright blinding, and I couldn’t help but wonder why the players weren’t worried about getting an earlobe ripped up after a tackle.
For the record, let me state that I have never worn an earring.
