Tuesday's UNC Football Links

Tuesday's links from around the 'net.

"Chase Page lay in his bed Monday morning. It was 2 a.m. Then 3. Then 4. He tossed, turned, tumbled. He couldn't fall asleep."
Tar Heels tired but energized
The Raleigh News and Observer

"Yep, it's the week of the State-Carolina football game, when the offbeat and bizarre seem normal. It's a week when locker-room bulletin boards overflow should one team utter the slightest of slights, when neighbors and co-workers avoid one another, when many fans on both sides pessimistically ponder Saturday afternoon doomsday scenarios.''

The Raleigh News and Observer

"Perhaps fully aware that North Carolina State fans aren't shy about crashing parties in Chapel Hill, coach John Bunting of North Carolina is trying to round up his team's fans this week."

"The tape arrived at the N.C. State football office at noon on Sunday, less than 12 hours after the final play of North Carolina's 38-35 victory at Arizona State. Until the tape got there, the Wolfpack's only knowledge of the game had come from newspapers and the Internet."

The Charlotte Observer

"With Saturday's high noon battle in Chapel Hill fast approaching, Amato doesn't deny that stakes are high. That would be the case even if the Wolfpack (6-0 overall, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) wasn't trying to remain unbeaten and improve on its No. 14 national ranking. That would hold true even if UNC (2-3, 0-1) wasn't looking at a game in which a victory could provide a springboard to a second-half turnaround to its season."

"No matter how hard N.C. State's Chuck Amato tried to be entertaining on Monday, he couldn't hide the fact that the pressure is on. It's on him. It's on the Wolfpack Nation and its stick-out-your-chest-because we're-pretty-darn-good attitude. It's on his 6-0 Wolfpack as it prepares to invade Kenan Stadium on Saturday for a noon shootout with 2-3 North Carolina."
