On Wednesday (Sept. 5), North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora was a guest on The David Glenn Show — a few days ahead of his team’s in-state showdown with East Carolina. During the interview, Fedora was asked what he remembered about the last time UNC and ECU met in Greenville — back in 2014. (A quick reminder: UNC allowed 70 points and nearly 800 yards of total offense.)
Fedora, however, claimed to have forgotten what happened that Saturday at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. (To hear the full interview with Larry Fedora and David Glenn, click here.) “I don’t remember a thing about it.”
Fedora, on what he remembers of UNC's last trip to Greenville (2014): "I don't remember a thing about it."
DG: Seriously? How could you completely forget (a 70-41 ECU victory) something like that? Or are you joking?
Fedora: I'm serious.
DG: I don't believe you.
Fedora: That's OK.

Later that afternoon, after the interview made a few waves on Twitter, Fedora was asked about his comments by News & Observer reporter Jonathan Alexander. Here’s what he had to say.
So I asked Larry Fedora about his radio comments, that he doesn’t remember the 70-41 loss to ECU in 2014. Here was his response pic.twitter.com/u2LlwOi8iq

Fedora: “Selective memory — that’s probably a good way of putting it. I remember what I want to remember, and block out the things that I want to block out.”
UNC and ECU kickoff at 3:30 on Saturday; the game will be televised on ESPNU.
