We're only two weeks into the 2018 college football season, but for some fan bases, it's already been two weeks too many.

A couple of major college football programs are off to tough starts. Which fan base is currently the most "miserable"?

According to USA TODAY's Dan Wolken, it's that of an ACC program.

North Carolina, which is off to an 0-2 start after a loss to lowly ECU, holds that title right now.


Remarkably, it could get worse before it gets better. At 0-2 already, the Tar Heels next face UCF, Pittsburgh, Miami and Virginia Tech in succession, which means 0-6 isn’t just on the table but is the most likely outcome of the next month.

And even though North Carolina fans may not care about football as much as basketball, that doesn’t mean they will accept it — particularly when Fedora’s undeserved arrogance too often leads him to stick his foot in his mouth.

Just this week, for instance, Fedora drew unnecessary attention to his troubles when he said he didn’t remember anything about the 70-41 loss he suffered to ECU back in 2014. It started Wednesday on the Raleigh-based David Glenn Show when he said “I don’t remember a thing about it,” which he repeated when pressed by Glenn and then again by UNC beat reporters after practice.
