His cell phone was jammed with voice-mail messages, 20 to be exact, because 20 is his phone's limit. He had 65 instant messages awaiting him Sunday, some from people he doesn't remember meeting. People come up to him and say, "Hey, are you Connor Barth?"

Bunting said the coaches named Doug Justice the defensive MVP of the game. Justice made his first start of the year Saturday, totaling five tackles and earning another starting spot for this Saturday's game against No. 18 Virginia Tech at Kenan Stadium.

The 18th-ranked Hokies had six personal fouls in their 34-20 victory over Georgia Tech last Thursday. Senior rover James Griffin was ejected for collecting two, though he's eligible to play Saturday when Tech (3-1, 6-2) plays an ACC game at noon at North Carolina (3-2, 4-4).

Sean May is proud of his weight loss, and why shouldn't he be? At about 250 pounds, in what he calls the best shape of his life, North Carolina's powerful forward has more agility and quickness than ever.
