Sunday's UNC Football Links

Sunday's links from around the 'net.

"By the time Darian Durant was done for the day, standing on the Scott Stadium sideline with a white baseball cap on backward, the lead had evaporated. Durant, North Carolina's quarterback, was having one of his best days before he injured his right thumb. He was left, helpless, to watch."
Heels again fall apart in second half
The Raleigh News and Observer

"Sure, Virginia had been in this spot before. But not like this. And, North Carolina — gasping-for-breath UNC — well, it had been close at halftime, or ahead in previous games. But not like this."
Another 2nd half stinker for Heels
The Durham Herald Sun

"John Bunting said that no football game can turn on one play, and he's right. Multiple second-half occurrences were UNC's downfall at Virginia. However, one snap in the third quarter changed everything, though no one at the time knew its effect on multiple levels of the Cavaliers' 37-27 comeback win."
Game turns thumbs down for UNC on 1 play
The Durham Herald Sun

"Matt Schaub threw two second half touchdown passes and Virginia rallied from a 21-0 halftime deficit to beat North Carolina 37-27 Saturday, extending its winning streak to six."
North Carolina collapses
The Fayetteville Observer

"The Tar Heels' 37-27 loss to Virginia under slate-gray skies Saturday in Scott Stadium had come with staggering swiftness and a sense of inevitability."
Second-half collapse dooms North Carolina
The Charlotte Observer

"North Carolina quarterback Darian Durant will have his injured right thumb X-rayed today in Chapel Hill, though early indications were he sustained a bruise rather than a break when his hand hit another player's helmet."

"What began as a beautiful autumn afternoon in the Blue Ridge Mountains ended up as just one more lost weekend for North Carolina's football team."
Virginia rally smacks UNC
The Greensboro News and Record

"After Saturday's events, the only thing to do was to closely examine the West end zone of Scott Stadium, where a disproportionate number of bad things seem to happen to Carolina football. It was in that end zone that UVA's Antwan Harris picked off a Chris Keldorf pass in 1996, turning around the momentum of the game, and it was near that end zone that Sam Aiken inexplicably dropped the ball Saturday afternoon at the two-yard line."
