Carolina Football

North Carolina's last break of the regular football season is over and has given way to what Coach Butch Davis is calling the big push at the end. There are four games left in the regular season starting on Saturday against Georgia Tech in Kenan Stadium. North Carolina is already bowl eligible, and after the games last Saturday, North Carolina came out of its break in more favorable position in the ACC race than when it entered.

North Carolina doesn't have a football game today, but Tar Heels coach Butch Davis can go ahead and add a very important intangible victory to his record. More correctly, to his resume. That's because November officially has arrived, and there's still as much interest among Carolina fans in the football team as the approaching basketball season.

North Carolina quarterback Cameron Sexton admits he was rooting for Miami to beat Virginia on Saturday. Not just as revenge for the Cavaliers' overtime victory over the Tar Heels last month -- but because of the boost it gave to No. 19 UNC's chances of playing in the ACC Championship Game.

Georgia Tech's new wishbone offense, which has chewed up a league-high 242.3 yards per game, has puzzled opposing defenses this season. First-year coach Bobby Johnson has brought his trademark scheme to a league that hasn't seen a similar attack in several years. But when No. 19 North Carolina squares off against the No. 22 Yellow Jackets on Saturday afternoon in a key Atlantic Coast Conference tilt, the Tar Heels will have one advantage not every team gets. An extra week.

When the Washington Nationals drafted Terrence Brown out of high school in 2005, he knew exactly what he wanted to do: play Division I college football. So the former Bullard High standout went on to play baseball and football at Fresno City College, hoping a D-I college would show interest. After two seasons at Fresno City, that goal was realized, as North Carolina football coach Butch Davis offered Brown a scholarship as a punter.

The Marcus Ginyard who reached for the remote any time political coverage came on the television in high school and most of college would've been flabbergasted by the Marcus Ginyard who took the microphone during a lull at North Carolina's Late Night with Roy festivities recently.
