First-year head coach Butch Davis had, more than a week ago, earmarked Saturday as the time he hoped to name North Carolina's starting quarterback for the 2007 opener. But all Davis announced as the Tar Heels closed out their first week of preseason practice is that no decision had been reached on the quarterback job. In fact, Davis indicated five players — sophomore Cam Sexton, red-shirt freshmen T.J. Yates and B.J. Phillips, freshman Mike Paulus and senior walk-on Ben Johnson — were still in contention for the starting job.

Marietta native and former Pope High star T.J. Yates may find out this week whether he's earned the starting quarterback job at North Carolina. Yates, who redshirted as a freshman last season, has been working with the first team during the first week of practice. The Tar Heels had their first major scrimmage Saturday, and new coach Butch Davis indicated he wanted to name a starter soon after that.

Mike Paulus came to North Carolina looking for some early playing time at quarterback. Paulus might get his wish, but it likely won't happen as soon as he had hoped.

Mike Paulus wouldn't let it happen to him. One of the key members of North Carolina's highly rated recruiting class surely would avoid the struggles that usually plague first-year players. Then, he arrived on campus and got a reality check.
