"You could turn back the clock five or six years for one glorious half of football Saturday, when the emotion and elation would cascade through Kenan Stadium as Vonnie Holliday or Greg Ellis or Dre Bly made a big play on defense -- a sack, a hurry, a batted ball, maybe an interception. The swagger was there for an instant as a Tar Heel leaped from the turf after pummeling an opposing quarterback. Is there anything as fun in football as the home team defense facing a third-and-short and converting, the Tar Heels cavorting off the field and the opposing offense trudging heads down to the far sideline?"

"First, the fumble wasn't all Darian's fault. This is an offense that lives by the big play and occasionally dies by that same sword. Already having shucked a blitzing linebacker who broke untouched into the Carolina backfield, Durant was running for his football life trying to turn nothing into something yet again."
