UNC Backup Quarterback Caleb Henderson Upset With Tar Heels' Student Newspaper For Criticism Of Starter Marquise Williams

Marquise Williams, North Carolina's starting quarterback, did not play well in the Tar Heels' season-opening loss to South Carolina Thursday night. You could even say that Williams, who threw three interceptions - all of which came in the red zone - was largely responsible for the 17-13 loss to the Gamecocks. 

UNC's student newspaper, The Daily Tar Heel, wrote a cover story that centered on that idea. 

Their cover featured a picture of Williams on the ground with the headline, "I don't know what to tell you," which was a quote from UNC head coach Larry Fedora.

This seemed to upset North Carolina backup quarterback Caleb Henderson, who tweeted and retweeted the following Friday afternoon.

In this situation, the criticism seemed fair. 

North Carolina is set to play North Carolina A&T next Saturday.
