The memory of North Carolina's first loss of the season is starting to fade away, but not the pain. Almost three full days have passed since the 24-7 setback at Georgia Tech, but quarterback T.J. Yates is still upset with the manner in which he played. Many other UNC players are also seething at the team's performance.
Heels 'angry' about defeat
The Winston Salem Journal

Quarterback T.J. Yates watched the film of North Carolina's 24-7 loss to Georgia Tech and didn't recognize his own team. The errant passes, the missed blocks, the missed kicks, the turnovers and the defensive lapses, that wasn't the UNC team that started 3-0. "It was not really us as a team," Yates said. "That's not our identity."

Shaun Draughn didn't want to even think about football, while T.J. Yates couldn't help but cringe while watching the game film. Yet there was no escaping the fact that North Carolina's young offense - which had shown progress for two straight weeks - has taken big step back just in time for Atlantic Coast Conference play.

After a disappointing loss to Georgia Tech on Saturday, North Carolina began turning its focus to its next opponent, Virginia, on Monday. But even as the Tar Heels answered questions about the Cavaliers, the 24-7 loss to Georgia Tech still was in the back of their minds. UNC might be playing Virginia this week, but the Tar Heels will be using their first defeat of the season as motivation against the Cavaliers.

With an ACC opener at North Carolina on the horizon, common sense would indicate that Virginia's football players would have tuned in for the Tar Heels' showdown on Saturday against Georgia Tech. Think again.

The wagons are circled at Camp Wahoo as Virginia's football team braces for its ACC opener against ancient rival North Carolina this weekend. Starting off 0-3, the Cavaliers' worst start since George Welsh dared to take over the laughing stock of ACC football back in 1982, Virginia has its work cut out heading into Chapel Hill.
