Larry Fedora Focusing UNC On Physical Rest, Mental Prep for Duke

Larry Fedora talked to media after practice on Monday.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - North Carolina had a lengthy two weeks to prepare for its matchup against Georgia Tech, but now only has five days to ready for the Blue Devils. 

After Monday's practice, linebacker Andre Smith noted he could still feel the physical beating he took during Saturday's game. The recovery process, Fedora said, is 75 percent of this week's focus.

Physical rest and mental preparation is crucial in a short week's turnaround, alongside cramming film and strategy into the few days they have to gear for the rivalry clash.
