North Carolina's Deunta Williams and Kendric Burney will have their appeals heard by the NCAA on Friday, UNC athletic director Dick Baddour said after a speech to the Raleigh Sports Club on Wednesday. Williams was suspended four games and Burney was suspended six games after violating the NCAA agent benefits and preferential treatment rules, and they also had to repay a portion of the benefit to a charity of their choice.

Before the NCAA investigation began, North Carolina's biggest question was whether its offense, ranked 108th nationally in 2009, would be better in 2010. After three games, there's no doubt about the answer, according to senior tight end Zack Pianalto.

North Carolina football players suspected of academic cheating will have to get in line with every other UNC student in a similar situation. Right now, that line stretches to 70 students or more. That was the approximate number of cases on the docket of the university's student judicial system last week, university officials said. It isn't clear how many of the 10 Tar Heels football players still sidelined by the NCAA investigation of the program have been implicated in cases of potential academic misconduct. University officials have said, though, that it could take several weeks at least for the current student cases to be resolved.
