Butch Davis Speech:
"It's a great opportunity to be here today on behalf of the entire football program to represent the great group of young men that played this season and made this season happen and a phenomenal group of assistant coaches. Nobody in the country has a better coaching staff than we've got at Carolina right now. These guys are great men.

"I want to take this opportunity to say to everybody in the Carolina family – we are grateful, thankful and very appreciative for the best fans in the country. You guys made this season special. I also want to recognize the best student body – Carolina Fever – in the entire ACC. And I know in this arena today there are an awful lot of people that are Rams Club members. We are unbelievably thankful for everything that you do for this university for all 28 sports to give us the chance to be the best. Thank you for everything you do. We'll see you in the spring. Let's get ready for 2011. Thank you. "
