I think I know the real answer.

Prior to 1970, UNCheat pretty much dominated UVA in both football and basketball. That all changed forever on March 5, 1970 in the ACC tourney when the #7 seed Hoos beat the #2 seed Tarholes led by All-American Charlie Scott 95-93. I distinctly recall watching the game on an old B&W tv in the basement of Humphreys dorm with a bunch of fellow 1st years. At the conclusion of the game one of us started chanting “Carolina sucks” and we all quickly joined in. I’m pretty sure I remember hearing the chant regularly after that.
