CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Elijah Hood is healthy and excited to be back on the field with his fellow Tar Heel running backs.
The squad of Khris Francis, Hood, T.J. Logan and Jordon Brown laughed and joked around after Wednesday's practice - even opting to interview together - making it clear the unit is eager and energized as it heads down to Miami.
That reinforces Larry Fedora's comment that practices this week have been the best he's seen all season. UNC's head coach has been impressed with the way his players have moved past the ugly loss to Virginia Tech and are focusing in on their next tough ACC matchup. A win this weekend is crucial for North Carolina to stay in the running for the Coastal Division title, one of the team's goals of the 2016 season.
