North Carolina football coach Butch Davis was the picture of health as he conducted his first spring practices in Chapel Hill this week. He plans to stay that way by undergoing chemotherapy following removal of a cancerous growth in his mouth.

"I know people are going to be concerned and everything, but it's going to be OK," Davis said during a meeting with reporters in his office. "We're going to get through this and we're going to have a great season next fall."

"I want the focus of this spring to be about this team. I have every intention of being the coach here for a long time. After we talk about it today, I don't want to talk about it anymore. Things are fine. I feel great."

North Carolina senior Reyshawn Terry, who scored nine points in the final three minutes against Michigan State on Saturday despite a headache and a fever, did not practice on Tuesday after being tested for strep.

"If he had it (strep throat) on Saturday, I would hope he is at least in the middle of it now, so we're starting on the downside of it," Williams said.

"I haven't made it definitively," he said. "But I think it is my mind-set right now. I just have to wait until the end of the year and (see) what things are like and go from there."

"It's a loose team. It's a team that enjoys life, enjoys each other, and I love that part of it." UNC features a cast of characters -- "We've got 17 guys who go between Einstein and Bozo the Clown," Williams said -- but a few players stand out above the rest for their comedic ability.
