  1. I just learned this morning that we have lost another Tar Heel from “the best of times at UNC.”

    Joe Swicegood passed away back on March 22nd, 2018. He was a center, Jersey #21, on the Justice Era teams and was, along with his wife Peggy, a participant in the 50th anniversary Sugar Bowl trip in 1997. He was also a teammate of Justice at Lee Edwards High in Asheville, 1940-1942.

    And of course, he is famous for his legendary barbecue restaurant in Asheville.
