Going into the season, the University of North Carolina had high hopes for their football squad. On the back of their Heisman hopeful quarterback, Sam Howell, the Tarheels expected to push for an ACC title. However, after a disappointing start to the season, UNC football seems to be dealing with an outbreak.

How Bad has the Outbreak Been?

While some programs have spent the past year dealing with Covid, UNC football is dealing with a… difference kind of outbreak.

1. No STDs

In football, it’s necessary to be in peak physical condition. While being in shape and eating right is a big part of that, there are other ways to take care of your body.

Growing up in the northeast, college football wasn't exactly played in my house. That all changed when I went to the University of Alabama. I immediately fell in love with college football, and took that love to Belly Up Sports where I became the college football department head. One upside of being from Massachusetts is I have seen a lot of success in terms of sports, and fell in love with all sports at a young age, so I will dip my pen about pretty much anything. I also make graphic content for the site.
