The quarterback duel between Joe Dailey and Cameron Sexton remains in a dead heat, and Coach John Bunting is thinking more seriously of playing both in North Carolina's Sept. 2 opener at Kenan Stadium against Rutgers.

That can't be North Carolina's new offensive coordinator in the baggy blue shorts, layered T-shirts and grungy baseball hat yanked down to his eyebrows. Frank Cignetti, impossibly 40 years old, looks more like the backup quarterback than the brains of the Tar Heels' offense.

North Carolina's quarterback competition continued "go as go," as Coach John Bunting likes to say, Thursday afternoon. Neither junior transfer Joe Dailey nor redshirt freshman Cam Sexton has pulled ahead in the bid to replace Matt Baker behind center.

North Carolina coach John Bunting and his offensive coordinator, Frank Cignetti, have a dilemma. The Tar Heels open the season in eight days, and they still don't know who their starting quarterback will be.

Aleric Mullins, a freshman from East Wake High School, will take classes at the University of North Carolina and will practice with the Tar Heels this season but he is not eligible to play in any games, UNC coach John Bunting said Thursday.

Freshman defensive lineman Aleric Mullins will not be eligible to play for North Carolina this season because of an academics ruling Thursday from the NCAA Clearinghouse. Mullins still can practice with the Tar Heels, as he has done since the start of preseason camp, but the SuperPrep All-American from Wendell can't play until next fall. He will have three years of eligibility left and can earn back a fourth by meeting certain academic criteria.
