Tar Heels Turn Back The Clock Wednesday


Posted Feb 14, 2005


CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- The University of North Carolina Athletics, in conjunction with ESPN and Nike, will be conducting a "80s Retro Night" at the Carolina vs. Virginia game this Wednesday at the Smith Center.

Both teams will wear uniforms worn in the 1980s, and ESPN will create television graphics that were used during this era as well. Commentators Mike Patrick , Len Elmore, and Doris Burke will adorn 80s attire, and UNC Athletics is encouraging spectators to do the same as well.

"It should be a fun night. Our fans will enjoy seeing the old v-neck uniforms as we have had many requests for the team to bring these back for one game," said Associate Athletic Director Norwood Teague. "We are encouraging fans to dress in 80s attire if they would like, and we are planning various activities in the arena that will involve an 80s theme."

Throughout the game, activities will include; UNC historical elements displayed on the video boards, 80s music played throughout the arena, and a best dressed contest that will offer the winner a shot at winning a 2004 Cadillac.
