In North Carolina's win over East Carolina on Saturday, the Tar Heels dominated every statistical category except one -- punting. UNC Grant Schallock's four punts averaged just 31.2 yards against ECU, and his short punts were especially noticeable since the Pirates' Matt Dodge was boom- ing 48.8-yard punts on average. Through three games this season, Schallock is averaging 37.8 yards a kick while the Tar Heels' opponents are averaging 44.6 yards. Those are numbers that make UNC coach Butch Davis uneasy since it is placing his team in less than desirable field position.

It's said that one man's misfortune is another man's opportunity. If that's the case, then Mark House now knows what it's like on both sides of the equation. A year ago, the walk-on from Hoggard battled his way out of nowhere to win the job as North Carolina's long snapper. But after fracturing his finger against Notre Dame in the season's sixth game, he lost the position to teammate Trevor Stuart.
