Carolina controlled its own road to the Orange Bowl going into Saturday's game against Maryland, but the Tar Heels lost. We almost won, but we did not deserve to be in the game.
Yesterday's loss all but dashes our hopes for a trip to the ACC Championship and Orange Bowl. I found an article that explains the few scenarios in which Carolina would win a trip to Tampa. I can't take it seriously now, but it's a good resource in case things fall into place again. This has been the season of many chances. Anything could happen.
