NOTING THE TAR HEELS 





Versatile sophomore Greg Little enters 2008 as the starting tailback. 



TAR HEELS RETURN 18 STARTERS, 43 LETTERMEN 



A year ago, North Carolina entered the season with 
more than 50 players who had never taken a college 
snap. Many of those players got a chance to play last 
season and will lean on that experience as they head into 
2008. 

The Tar Heels welcome back 43 lettermen this season, 
including 23 defensive lettermen, 1 9 offensive lertermen 
and one special teams lefterman. Carolina has nine 
returning starters on offense, including all-star candidates 
Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Tate at wide receiver, Garrett 
Reynolds at offensive tackle and T.J. Yates at quarterback. 
Versatile sophomore Greg Little returns at tailback after 
starting the final two games in 2007. 

Defensively, Carolina returns eight starters, includ- 
ing freshman All-Americas Deunta Williams at safety, 
Marvin Austin at defensive tackle and Quan Sturdivant at 
linebacker. Punter Terrence Brown is back at punter. 

"One of the most important parts of developing this 
program is getting players to take ownership of it," says 
head coach Butch Davis. "We want our older guys to 
develop leadership so they can take over position groups 
and we want them to look after young guys and make 
sure they're doing the right things not just on football 
field but in the classroom and in the community. There is 
evidence that is starting to take place." 

QUARTERBACK PLAY 

One of the storylines this fall will be the return of 
sophomore quarterback T.J. Yates, who missed spring 
practice after undergoing surgery on his right (throwing) 
shoulder December 1 7. Yates set a single-season school 
record in 2007 with 2,655 passing yards, the fourth- 
highest total in ACC history for a first-year player. Late in 
the season, he began to experience some minor shoulder 
pain. An MRI following the Duke game revealed a small 
tear that required surgery. Yates is expected to be at full 
strength for fall practice in August. 

"T.J. got off to such a great start last year," says Davis. 
"His efficiency and yards and touchdowns were outstand- 
ing. He struggled at the end of the season and looking 
back, it probably had something to do with the shoulder 
injury. With the receivers we have, he has an opportunity 
to bounce back and have another great season. We've 
only scratched the surface with what our quarterbacks can 
do. A whole new offense is a lot for them to learn. We ask 
a lot of them mentally. The longer they are in this offense 
the more productive they will be." 

Junior Cameron Sexton and redshirt freshman Mike 
Paulus split the snaps this spring in Yates' absence and 
both were impressive in the Spring Game. Paulus started 
and completed 11 of 1 6 attempts for 1 59 yards, and 



Sexton was 7 of 9 for 1 04 yards. 

Sexton played in seven games and started five as a 
freshman in 2006 He completed 57 of 1 36 attempts for 
840 yards and four touchdowns. Last season, he played 
in just one game and completed his only attempt. Paulus, 
a highly recruited quarterback from Syracuse, NY., red- 
shirted in 2007. Charlotte native Braden Hanson joins 
the team this season as a true freshman. 

WHAT CAROLINA RETURNS IN 2008 

Carolina returns several familiar faces in 2008, par- 
ticularly on offense. In fact, the Tar Heels return all of their 
production at quarterback, 99.5 percent of their output at 
running back and 98.6 percent of their receiving yards. 
The only statistical loss on offense was wide receiver Joe 
Dailey who had two receptions for 38 yards and one rush 
for five yards. 

As a group, Carolina's wide receivers may be as good 
as any in the conference. Hakeem Nicks, Brooks Foster 
and Brandon Tate combined for 1 28 receptions for 1 ,854 
yards and 1 2 touchdowns in 2007.

DEFENSIVE LINE AGAIN A STRENGTH 

Despite the loss of NFL draft picks Hilee Taylor and 
Kentwan Balmer, Carolina's strength on defense should be 
among the front four. Carolina has a solid nucleus includ- 
ing Marvin Austin, Cam Thomas, E.J. Wilson and Aleric 
Mullins, all of whom have logged significant playing time 
Meanwhile, players like Tavares Brown, Darius Powell, 
Darrius Massenburg, Greg Elleby and Tydreke Powell 
have potential, but just need experience. 

"I told those guys the first day, Not to put any pressure 
on you, but we'll go as far as you guys go,'" first-year 
coordinator Everett Withers says of the defensive front. "I 
honestly believe that's how you win games, you win them 
up front. If you have guys who are roaring and snorting 
every snap, they make it easy on the back end. I'm im- 
pressed with the talent and the job coach [John] Blake has

done with those guys. We just need to keep recruiting well 
and developing depth." 

Wilson started every game at defensive end in 2007 
and posted 44 tackles, including 9.5 tackles for losses and 
5.0 sacks, which ranked second on the team. Mullins, 
Austin and Brown all started at least two games a year 
ago. 

POSITI ON CHA NGES 

A handful of Carolina players have made position 
changes since the end of the 2007 season, including the 
team's leading rusher, Johnny White, who moved to cor- 
nerback. White started eight games in 2007 at tailback, 
gaining a team-high 399 yards on 95 carries. Freshman 
Greg Little moved into the starting tailback role for the 
final two games of the season and rushed for 243 yards 
and two touchdowns. 

Ryan Taylor, a standout on special teams and a tight 
end/h-back a year ago, has converted to linebacker. 

Late in spring practice Davis decided to move former 
tight end Vince Jacobs to defensive end. Initially, the swap 
was just on a trial basis, as Davis wanted to see Jacobs 
work in individual drills. But after the rising sophomore 
beat a pair of offensive linemen for a sack, it became a 
permanent switch. It paid off in the spring scrimmage, 
as on one play Jacobs' speed enabled him 
to run down a tailback for a loss from the 
back side. He also combined with Tydreke 
Powell for another tackle for loss and forced 
a fumble. 

Others making position changes include 
Cooter Arnold from CB to WR, Anthony 
Parker-Boyd from DB to WR and Aaron 
Stahl from OG to C. 



standout season. Davis says Reynolds is one of the best 
offensive linemen he has coached. 

Senior guard Calvin Darity (6-3, 310), junior tackle 
Kyle Jolly (6-6, 300), who missed the spring with a foot 
injury, and guard/center Aaron Stahl (6-2, 290) also 
return as starters. 

This spring, Davis experimented by moving Stahl to 
center. A versatile player, Stahl is probably the Tar Heels' 
quickest lineman. His move opens the door to competition 
from senior Bryon Bishop (6-3, 300) and sophomore Alan 
Pelc (6-6, 325) for the final starting spot. 

"The interior of the offensive line is not 100 percent 
settled," says Davis. "At left guard, Bryon Bishop played 
very well and had his most productive spring. He's being 
challenged by Alan Pelc. We would have liked to see 
if Kevin Bryant (6-7, 350) could challenge them but he 
missed the spring with a wrist injury. With Jolly out, we 
discovered that Carl Gaskins is a very good young pros- 
pect at the left tackle position. We still have some areas 
where we need to establish some good quality depth. We 
need to have 7-8 guys who can go in and play." 

WITHERS ADDE D TO C OACHING STAFF 

Carolina's only offseason coaching change was the 
addition of Everett Withers as defensive coordinator and 



defensive backs coach. Withers replaced Chuck Pagano, 
who left to become a Baltimore Ravens assistant coach. 
Withers joined the Tar Heels just after signing day and 
coached his new team this spring. 

"Everett's transition into this staff has been as seamless 
as any staff addition I've been around," says Davis. "He's 
a great person and a good man. He comes in with a great 
knowledge defensively of how to coach. Immediately he 
was a big hit with our players. We're very fortunate. He's 
a charismatic recruiter and outstanding secondary coach. 
We hit a home run by hiring him to this staff." 

Withers came to North Carolina after serving one sea- 
son as the University of Minnesota's defensive coordinator 
in 2007. He also has coached on the college level at 
Texas with former Tar Heel coach Mack Brown, Louisville, 
Southern Miss, Tulane and Austin Peay. 

Prior to working at Minnesota, Withers spent six sea- 
sons with the Tennessee Titans from 2001 -06 under head 
coach Jeff Fisher. He helped the Titans defense tally 57 
interceptions, which was the most for the franchise over a 
three-year period since 1 993-95. Withers also worked 
for the NFL's New Orleans Saints earlier in his career. 

Withers earned his bachelor's degree from Appala- 
chian State in 1 985. He was also a standout defensive 
back and captain for the Mountaineers from 1 98 1 -85. 



NICKS MOVES UP RECORD CHART 

Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks enters 
2008 as an All-America candidate with 
several Carolina career records within reach. 
A second-team All-ACC pick last year, Nicks 
set the single-season school record with 74 
receptions for 958 yards and five touch- 
downs. He enters 2008 just 64 receptions 
shy of Carolina's career mark of 1 77 . He 
also is 829 yards shy of the career mark of 
2,447 set by Corey Holliday (1 989-93). 

Over the last two seasons, Nicks has 1 1 3 
receptions, which is more than ACC career 
record holder Desmond Clark of Wake For- 
est (85) had at this stage of his career. 

Nicks is second among active ACC 
players in receptions and fourth in receiving 
yards with 1 ,61 8. 

TATE SEEKS NCAA CAREER RECORD 



In just three seasons, Brandon Tate set 
an ACC career record for kickoff return 
yardage with 2,383 yards. The previous 
record of 2,313 was held by UNC's Eric 
Blount (1988-91). A senior from Burlington, 
NC, Tate enters the season as the nation's 
active career leader in return yardage and 
tied with Indiana's Marcus Thigpen as the 
active career leader for kickoff returns for 
touchdowns (3). 

Tate is on pace to break the NCAA 
record for career kickoff return yardage held 
by Jeff Liggon of Tulane, who had 2,922 
yards from 1993-96 (123 returns). 

Tate also blossomed into one of the ACC's 
top big play receivers last season and led the 
Tar Heels with 1 9.2 yards per catch (25 for 
479) and five touchdowns. He led the ACC 
in all-purpose yards with 147.1 per game. 

REYNOLDS HEADLINES OFFENSIVE LINE 

Senior tackle Garrett Reynolds headlines 
North Carolina's massive offensive line. At 
6-7, 310 pounds, Reynolds is an imposing 
force on the right side of the line. He has

RECORD-SETTING YATES LOOKS TO IMPROVE 

By Adam Lucas, TaiHcclBhu-.com 




When he looks back at his freshman season, 
T.J. Yates doesn't see the school single-season 
record for passing yardage (2.655) or the UNC 
freshman records for completions (218). 

He sees mistakes. Lots and lots of mistakes. 
"This is just a bad mental mistake," he says 
as he watches his first interception of the year, 
which came against James Madison in the 
season opener. "I thought Hakeem was running 
a completely different route than what he was 
actually running. I just threw it to the wrong 
guy. 
"That's the kind of thing that can be so easily fixed, and it must be fixed 
because it leads to interceptions and turnovers. Looking back at how many of 
our problems were caused by things like that, it can make you really mad." 

It's hard to get too mad about one of the finest seasons ever for a Carolina 
quarterback. At a school where the passing heritage is not especially rich, his 
60 percent completion rate and 14 touchdowns should have qualified Yates for 
a statue. Instead, he spends more time thinking about the 18 interceptions than 
the 14 touchdowns. 

That's primarily because of the way the season ended, with two failed two- 
minute offense opportunities at NC State and Georgia Tech and a narrow over- 
time win over Duke in which Yates first began to feel pain in his right shoulder. 
"Before the Duke game, I knew I didn't have the normal zip on the ball," he 
says. "But I thought I was just fatigued from all the throwing during the season. 
But against Duke, it was kind of a cold day, and I never felt like I could get 
warmed up. At that point I thought something might be wrong, because I felt 
some pain in my shoulder." 

Yates completed just 1 1 -of- 24 passes for 75 yards in that game in an offense 
that had been drastically scaled down by coordinator John Shoop in order to 
protect the quarterback. And Yates's intuition proved correct when he was 
diagnosed with tissue trauma in his shoulder joint. 

The injury required a substantial 14-phase rehab process that forced Yates to 
the sidelines during spring practice, where Shoop could often be heard barking. 
"Look here. T.J. , these guys are getting better!" as backups Cameron Sexton 
and Mike Paulus went through their on-field repetitions. 

To compensate for the lack of field action — he didn't begin throwing until 
mid-April — Yates found other ways to improve. 

"Coach Shoop always says that if one of your senses is gone, you have to 
make the other ones keener," Yates says. "I couldn't do some of the physical 
throwing, but I could do things like work on my footwork and get in the film 
room. 

"That's how I'm going to get better. I'm trying to learn more football every 
day, and by doing that it makes playing the game more natural. And that's how 
you eliminate some of those silly mistakes." 



PLACE-KICKER BATTLE 

One of the position battles to watch 
this fall is at place-kicker, where the Tar 
Heels are looking to replace four-year 
starter and career field goal leader Connor 
Barth. Redshirt freshman Jay Wooten is 
expected to step in for Barth, but will face 
competition from a number of walk-on 
players, including Barth 's brother, Casey, a 
freshman from Wilmington. 

LITTLE RETURNS AT R UNNING BACK 

Carolina returns all four of its leading 
rushers from 2007, including sophomore 
Greg Little. A native of Durham, N.C. Little 
started the final two games last season and 
rushed for 243 yards, including 1 54 yards 
and two touchdowns in an overtime victory 
vs. Duke. 

Following the season, Little joined the 
basketball team as a walk on and stayed 
with the team through the ACC Tourna- 
ment. He returned in time for football's 
spring practice. 

Little enters the season as the starter, but 
will face challenges from sophomore Ryan 
Houston and redshirt freshman Devon 
Ramsay. Johnny White, last year's starting 
running back in eight games, has moved 
to cornerback. 

2008 TICKET SALES SET RECORD 



North Carolina sold a school-record 
36,250 season tickets for the seven-game 
home slate in 2008. Carolina's schedule 
is highlighted by visits from Virginia Tech, 
Notre Dame and NC State. The highest 
previous season ticket total was 34,800 
in 1 998, the year after the Tar Heels fin 
ished 11-1 and were ranked No. 4 in the 
country. 

"Our fans have been great," says head 
coach Butch Davis. "We had a fantastic 
gameday atmosphere last year. Our fans 
and their vocal support make a tremen- 
dous impact on our players and recruits." 

Last season, Carolina sold out five of its 
six home games, averaged 57,41 7 fans - 
the most in more than a decade. Average 
attendance was up nearly 1 8 percent from 
the previous season

Senior Garrett Reynolds is one of the league's top offensive tackles. 



night game on ESPN highlight North Carolina's 2008 
football schedule. 

Carolina plays host to seven home games for just the 
second time in the last 1 4 years. The Tar Heels begin 
the season on Aug 30 vs. McNeese State and also face 
non-conference home games against Connecticut (Oct. 4) 
and Notre Dame (Oct, 1 1 ). The Fighting Irish are visiting 
Chapel Hill for just the sixth time overall and the first time 
since 1975. 

The Tar Heels' ACC home slate includes games against 
defending ACC champion Virginia Tech (Sept. 20), Boston 
College (Oct. 25), Georgia Tech (Nov. 8) and NC State 
(Nov. 22). 

In the second game of the season, Carolina will play 
at Rutgers on Thursday, Sept. 1 1, in a nationally-televised 
game on ESPN. It marks Carolina's first appearance on an 
ESPN Thursday night game since the 2006 season against 
Virginia. 

Carolina's road schedule is highlighted by Davis' 
return to Miami (Sept, 27), where he coached for six 
seasons and led the Hurricanes to a 51 -20 record. Davis 
and the Tar Heels beat Miami, 33-27, last year at Kenan 
Stadium. UNC's last win at Miami came in 1 957. 

Carolina's other road games are at Virginia (Oct. 1 8), 
at Maryland (Nov. 1 5) and at Duke (Nov. 29). 

BALMER GOES IN FIRST ROUND OF NFL DRAFT 



Defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer was selected with 
the 29th overall pick in the first round of the 2008 NFL 
Draft. He became the 17th overall first-round selection in 
North Carolina history and the first since Julius Peppers 
and Ryan Sims in 2002. Balmer had a career year under 
the tutelage of head coach Butch Davis and defensive line 
coach John Blake. He finished with 59 tackles and 9.5 
tackles for losses 

"In the next half dozen years we will be the kind of 
program where Kentwan Balmer set the standard and 
we have 6- 1 2 kids drafted every year," says Davis, who 
runs an NFL-style program, "The more players you get 
drafted, the more high profile recruits want to come. It will 
definitely pay dividends in the future." 

ACC & NFL DRAFT 

Over the past two years, 82 ACC players have been 
drafted in the National Football League, the most by any 
conference in the nation. During the same time period the 
ACC has had more first round selections in the NFL Draft 
with 18.

North Carolina will unveil new Nike uniforms in 2008, 
The jersey has an updated design and includes a big- 
ger nameplate with a wide font. The uniform is made 
of new performance fabrics, producing a tight, shrink- 
wrapped fit Both the jersey and pants are significantly 
lighter in weight and are produced with fabrics that 
hold far less moisture. Lightweight mesh is added in 
areas traditionally covered by non-breathable fabrics, 
(in the upper back, neck and under arms where heat 
can escape). A Carolina Blue stripe on the side of the 
home (white) pants extends from the waist to the middle 
of the thigh.

Kenan 
Stadium 
Master 
Plan 



• "Many people acknowledge that 
Kenan Stadium and its surround- 
ing woods create the most beautiful 
setting for college football in 
America. This Master Plan, with 
all the improvements, will actually 
make the stadium even more beau- 
tiful than it is today." 

Dick Baddour 

Athletic Director 

University of North Carolina 



• Preliminary architectural render- 
ings of the expansion of Kenan 
Stadium were presented to the 
UNC Board of Trustees in March 
and again in July. These render- 
ings are preliminary, are subject to 
final approval of the Board of 
Trustees and will continue to 
evolve throughout the approval 
process. 



• Construction on the West end 
zone project will begin following 
the 2008 season. The South and 
North side projects will begin after 
the 2009 season. 



page 18 



a 





Kenan 
Stadium 
Master 
Plan 



• A 40,000 square foot academic 
center, which will serve all 
Carolina student-athletes, will be 
constructed on the North side of 
Kenan Stadium. 



• Plans include dramatic 
upgrades to the landscaping 
around Kenan Stadium. Those 
plans include a revamped 
entrance to the North and South 
sides of the stadium, the planting 
of several thousand trees in the 
Kenan Stadium grounds, and the 
construction of stone walls that 
tie into the overall design of 
campus. The outer gates will 
incorporate arches similar to the 
base of the Bell Tower.

Academic 
Excellence 



• In each of the last five years, UNC 
has been honored by the American 
Football Coaches Association for 
graduating at least 70 percent of its 
football student-athletes. 

• Tar Heel football players benefit from 
UNC's outstanding Academic Support 
Program. The program assists 
student-athletes in exploring their 
interests and abilities, enjoying a broad 
educational experience, and reaching 
or exceeding their academic goals. The 
staff includes academic counselors and 
learning specialists devoted to working 
with the football team. 

• The program is housed primarily in 
the Pope Academic Support Center, 
which is equipped with study facilities, 
tutorial rooms, a computer lab, a 
128-seat auditorium, counselors' 
offices, and state-of-the-art video and 
computer equipment. 

At the center, students meet with staff 
to discuss course selection, major and 
career exploration, academic progress 
and academic eligibility.

Sports 
Medicine 



• Tar Heel student-athletes are 
cared for by some of the nation's 
top sports medicine professionals. 
Physicians and athletic trainers 
provide a comprehensive system of 
care designed to prevent injuries 
and successfully rehabilitate any 
that might occur. 



• Student-athletes at Carolina are 
fortunate to have access to the 
services provided by the UNC Sports 
Medicine Research Lab. Directed by 
Dr. Kevin Guskiewicz and Dr. Darin 
Padua, the Research Lab specializes 
in sport-related performance testing. 

Football student-athletes undergo 
tests to measure not only their 
baseline neurocognitive function, but 
also functional biomechanical 
analysis. The information gained 
from these tests is used to better 
determine a student-athletes' readi- 
ness to return to competition follow- 
ing injury as well as to customize 
training programs to prevent such 
injuries. 

The Sports Medicine Research lab 
is a valuable tool in applying scientific 
data to improve our student-athletes' 
performance and healthcare.

Tar Heels' Hard Hits Help Researchers Learn About Injurie 

Technology worn in UNC players' helmets is helping researchers learn more about head 
injuries and could lead to better guidelines for evaluating a player's status for 
future competition. Using a system known as HITS (Head Impact Telemetry 
System), researchers were able to measure the amount of force players' heads 
experienced during tackles and also the directional force of 
the hits, as well as noting where on the head the impact 
occurred. 

By viewing video shot during the study, the research has 
already been able to avoid further injury. After a player in the 
study sustained two concussions, coaches viewed the video 
and determined that the player was not using proper 
technique. After training, he was able to make equally hard 
hits without sustaining injury. 

Kevin Guskiewicz is the chair of the Department of^. 
Exercise and Sport Science and senior author on < 
the paper, reported in the December 2007 issue 
of Neurosurgery. Guskiewicz was assisted by 
graduate student Jason Mihalik. 

The data for the study, funded by the Centers for /£l 
Disease Control and Prevention through a grant ji 
at UNC's injury Prevention Research Center, was 
collected from 88 Carolina football players from 
fall 2004 through spring 2006.

• As the 29th pick in the 2008 NFL 
Draft, UNC's Kentwan Balmer 
became the 17th first-round draft 
pick in school history and the first 
since Julius Peppers (second 
overall) and Ryan Sims (sixth 
overall) in 2002. 

Balmer is the 29th first-round 
pick Butch Davis has coached or 
recruited during his career as a 
college head coach. 



• "In the next half dozen years we 
will be the kind of program where 
Kentwan Balmer set the standard 
and we have 6-12 kids drafted 
every year," Butch Davis says. 
"The more players you get 
drafted, the more high profile 
recruits want to come. It will pay 
dividends in the future." 




"On the first day Coach Davis met with the 
team, he said he was going to show us how 
to be great. And he hasn't gone back on his 
word. Even as I have been going through 
this process and going to school, he has 
been with me every step of the way. It has 
just been a blessing to have him as a head 
coach. 

"Coach Davis and Coach Blake brought a 
professional approach to the game. They 
taught me what it takes in terms of mental 
preparation to play at the highest level. I 
owe it all to them for helping me reach my 
goal of playing in the NFL." 

- Kentwan Balmer 



"I was ecstatic for Kentwan. I know how | 
important it was to him and his family to b« 
a first-round draft choice. It's great for our 
program because it's a testimony that whe 
someone does what he did last year, the ' 
sky is the limit. He did everything a 
coaching staff could ask an athlete to do. 
He was a leader, he prepared and he 
played great on game days."

Playing 
for the 
Prize 



• As a member of the Atlantic Coast 
Conference, UNC plays each year for 
a berth in the Bowl Championship 
Series and a shot at the national title. 
ACC teams also compete for 
guaranteed spots in eight other out- 
standing games held in exciting loca- 
tions across the country. 

• The ACC is the nation's winningest 
bowl conference as the 12 current 
league teams are a combined 145- 
129-5 (.529) in post season play. 

In 2002, the ACC set an NCAA 
record when seven of its nine teams 
received bowl bids. Eight teams have 
earned bowl invitations in each of the 
past three years, a feat matched by 
only one other conference. 




Boston College • Clemson • Duke 
Florida State • Georgia Tech 

Maryland * Miami • North Carolina 

NC State • Virginia 

Virginia Tech • Wake Forest 



Now in its 56th year of competition, the Atlantic Coast Conference has 
long enjoyed the reputation as one of the strongest and most competi- 
tive intercollegiate conferences in the nation. 

Since the league's inception in 1953, ACC schools have captured 108 
national championships, including 57 in women's competition and 51 in 
men's. In addition, NCAA individual titles have gone to ACC student- 
athletes 143 times in men's competition and 91 times in women's 
action. 

The conference had an immediate impact on the national college foot- 
ball scene in the fall of 1953 when the University of Maryland captured 
the first of what would eventually be five national football titles for the 
ACC. Clemson laid claim to the league's second national title in 1981 
while Georgia Tech followed suit in 1990. Florida State pocketed na- 
tional titles No. 4 and 5 in 1993 and 1999. In addition, Miami has laid 
claim to five national gridiron titles over the past 22 seasons. 

This past season 10 ACC players earned first team All-America recog- 
nition, while nine others garnered second or third team honors. The 12 
institutions that take to the field this fall under the ACC banner have 
produced 533 first or second team gridiron All-Americas and 73 first 
team Academic All-Americas. 




The 2008 ACC Football Cham- 
pionship Game is scheduled for 
Dec. 6 in Tampa Bay. The 2009 
game also will be played at Ray- 
mond James Stadium. 

The 2010 and 2011 games are 
set for Charlotte, N.C.

Walk-on 
Tradition 



• Walk-ons play an important role 
in the Tar Heel program and have 
the opportunity to be a part of the 
UNC football family. 

• "When walk-ons come here, once 
they are on the football team I 
could care less whether they're 
here on a Pell grant, the GI Bill, 
Uncle Sam, or their Mom and Dad 
paying the way. Once they get 
here, the best players will play. 
They always have the chance to 
earn a scholarship here." 

- Head Coach Butch Davis 

• Several walk-ons have earned 
scholarships at North Carolina 
over the last decade, including NFL 
players David Thornton, Greg 
Warren, Jeff Reed, Wallace Wright 
and Durell Mapp. 

• Following spring practice, head 
coach Butch Davis awarded a 
scholarship for the 2008 season to 
junior center Lowell Dyer. 



II 



David Thornton walked on to North Carolina 
and was later selected in the fourth round of 
the NFL Draft. Last season, he led 
the Tennessee Titans in tackles 
and ranked 11th in the NFL.

University 
of North 
Carolina 



• The University of North 
Carolina at Chapel Hill was the 
nation's first state university to 
open its doors and the only public 
university to award degrees in the 
18th century. Authorized by the 
N.C. Constitution in 1776, the Uni- 
versity was chartered by the N.C. 
General Assembly Dec. 11, 1789, 
the same year George Washington 
first was inaugurated as president. 
The cornerstone was laid for Old 
East, the nation's first state univer- 
sity building, Oct. 12, 1793. Hinton 
James, the first student, arrived 
from Wilmington, N.C, Feb. 12, 
1795. 

• Now in its third century, 
Carolina offers bachelor's, 
master's, doctoral and professional 
degrees in academic areas critical 
to North Carolina's future: 
business, dentistry, education, law, 
medicine, nursing, public health 
and social work, among others. 
Offerings include 71 bachelor's, 
107 master's, 74 doctorate and four 
professional degree programs. 

• Through teaching, research and 
public service, Carolina connects 
with the people of North Carolina 
every day in ways that improve 
lives and build futures. The Uni- 
versity is committed to addressing 
the issues that North Carolinians 
are concerned most about - such as 
education, health care and 
economic development. The 
University's focus on excellence is 
to help North Carolina be the best 
that it can be.

FOSTER FILLS ANY ROLE 



11 



By Adam Lucas. TaiHcclBluc.com 

Even Brooks Foster has a little trouble 
describing where he fits in the North Carolina 
offense. 

In Carolina's deep and talented pool of re- 
ceivers, some have distinct job titles. Brandon 
Tate is the blazer. Hakeem Nicks is the go-to 
big-play man. And Foster? Well. . . 

"1 don't know how _\ou describe my role." 
he says. "I'm the versatile guy. I can do my 
job. or I can do Hakeem's job, or I can do 
Brandon's job." 

Whatever his job description, the senior has been a productive member of 
one of Carolina's most talented position groups. He has 67 career catches and 
three career touchdowns, and his 14.4 yards per catch and 29 receptions as a 
junior ranked second on the roster in each category. 

In some ways, he's a beneficiary of the attention paid to Nicks and Tate. 
With opposing defenses forced to double-cover at least one of them, it can open 
some seams for Foster. But having such talent on the field at the same position 
also means he's unlikely to ever gain the status of a featured receiver. 

The Boiling Springs, S.C., native doesn't seem to mind. Instead, he's fo- 
cused on gaining consistency, especially after an up-and-down sophomore cam- 
paign that saw him catch 14 passes and a touchdown in the first two games but 
then amassed just 24 receptions and zero touchdowns over the final 10 games. 

Since then, he's focused on turning his raw skills into a deeper understand- 
ing of football. 

"I felt like I was a fairly complete receiver when I came into college, but I 
needed to improve all aspects of my game," Foster says. "The biggest part of 
that has been studying the game. And that doesn't mean just in the film room. 
You can do a lot of studying on the field, too. You can do it through experi- 
ence." 

In fact, he's the most experienced receiver in that gifted group and one of 
just a handful of seniors on a youthful Tar Heel offense. That doesn't mean he's 
planning to become a boisterous center of the huddle, instead preferring to lead 
by example, but he still has lofty goals for 2008 in an offense that has proven to 
he creative enough to get the ball into the hands of playmakers. 

"I'm going to play a bigger role this year." he says. "To this point. I've kind 
of laid back. But this is my last year. I have to step forward and do what I can 
do. and I know I can do that."

IMICKS SAYS TIME IS NOW 

By Adam Lucas. TiirHcclBlnccotii 



Hakeem Nicks has done most everything a 
wide receiver can do during his Carolina ca- 
reer. He set a single-season school record with 
74 receptions last season and also holds the Tar 
Heel freshman records for receptions (39) and 
receiving yards (660). He's in position — as just 
a junior— to challenge the school records for 
career receptions and career receiving yards. 
With a phenomenal catch and run, he made 
what Butch Davis called "one of the most 
inspirational plays I've seen in 33 years of coaching" against Virginia. 

So it's a little surprising when Nicks responds so quickly to the question of 
whether there's anything he hasn't yet accomplished in his Tar Heel career: 

"1 haven't won." he says. "I haven't been to a bowl yet in my college career, 
and it's time to get that done." 

That's a high priority for Nicks, who arrived at Carolina by way of the sto- 
ried Charlotte Independence program and never lost a game in his high school 
career. 

Adjusting to the parity of the college game and going just 7-17 in his first 
two years in Chapel Hill has been a challenge. 

"That first year was hard," Nicks says of his 3-9 freshman campaign. "I 
knew before I got here that there would be a lot more competition at the ACC 
level. I wasn't expecting to win every single game. But I definitely want to \\ m 
more than we have so far." 

The Charlotte native is convinced that the offense is in place to score plenty 
of points — and post plenty of wins. The unit showed flashes of that potential in 
2007, but was halted by a revolving door at tailback and, eventually, an injury 
to record-setting freshman quarterback T.J. Yates. 

Now Greg Little is entrenched at tailback and Yates is healthy, which means 
coordinator John Shoop finally has a full set of weapons to deploy. 

Nicks is still the acknowledged big-play master— Shoop loves the fact that 
his 6-foot- 1 receiver can take a short pass at midfield and turn it into a long 
play, but is also versatile enough to be a strong target down around the goal 
line — but he's not the only threat. 

"Our offense is going to shock people." Nicks says. "We have a lot oi 
skilled players who make plays. If teams focus on me, Brandon Tate is on the 
other side and Brooks Foster is in the middle. And we've got Greg running the 
ball and a talented quarterback. We really are deep." 

Deep enough, perhaps, to turn some of those narrow 2007 losses into 
victories? 

"No doubt," Nicks says with the conviction of a man who understands what 
it takes to manufacture a winner. "This is our time."

2nd Year at Carolina 
34th Year Overall 



Entering his second season as North Carolina's head coach. Butch Davis 
has brought energy and excitement back to the Tar Heel football program 
with his ability to motivate, teach and recruit at the highest level. A man with 
a proven record of success and an unyielding commitment to excellence. 
Davis has a clear vision for building a championship program in Chapel Hill 
based on integrity, character and honor. 

The former head coach at the University of Miami and the NFL's Cleve- 
land Browns. Davis is Carolina's 33rd head coach and the ninth since the 
ACC was formed in 1953. 

Davis was introduced as North Carolina's head coach on Nov. 1 3. 2006. 
and in just one year he has rejuvenated the fan base and brought excitement 
to every Saturday at Kenan Stadium. Beginning with his first Carolina 
recruiting class in 2007. which many analysts ranked among the top 
10 in the country. Davis has connected with student-athletes and 
fans alike with his brand of football. 

Last season, Carolina sold out live of its six home games, 
averaged 57.417 fans - the most in more than a decade 
- and played with a renewed sense of confidence and 
enthusiasm. Average attendance was up nearly 18 
percent from the previous season and season ticket 
sales have surged to more than 35,000 in anticipation 
of the 2008 campaign. 

"Building a championship program is a process that 
takes time." says Davis. "We had a taste of success last 
year and grew together through the tips and downs. One of 
most important parts of developing this program is get- 
ting players to take ownership of the program, 
and we arc starting to see evidence of that." 

Davis's first season in Chapel Hil 
was highlighted by an impressive 33-27 
win over Miami, in which he earned 
his first ACC victory against his 
former school. Carolina also secured 
wins over James Madison. Maryland 
and Duke, but saw several narrow 
victories slip from its grasp, drop- 
ping six games by a combined total 
of just 24 points. Statistically, Car- 
olina finished 35th in the country 
in total defense, improving nearly 
60 positions from the previous 
year. Offensively, quarterback T.J. 
Yates and Hakeem Nicks set school 
records lor passing yards and receptions, 
respectively. On special teams, senior 
place-kicker Connor Barth was among the 
best in the country and finished his career ; 
Carolina's all-time leader in field goals. 

Several individuals benefitted from 
Davis's return to the college game, none 
more than defensive tackle Kentwan 
Balmer. who rose from part-time 
starter to an NFL first-round draft 
choice. Balmer had career highs in 
tackles and sacks, earned all-confer- 
ence honors for the first time and be 

82 • TARHEELBtUE.COM 




came the 29th first-round draft choice Davis has produced as a college coach. 
Balmer's experience is yet another example that Davis and his staff prepare 
players for professional football better than any other group in the country. 

"Coach Davis taught me how to be a professional player," says Balmer. 
who was taken with the 29th overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers. "I 
know I still have a lot to learn, but I think I understand more of what it takes 
to be an NFL player now than I did before. 1 wouldn't be a first-round draft 
pick without his help and guidance." 

Defensive end Hilee Taylor, linebacker Durell Mapp and Barth all had 
their best seasons in 2007 and each earned the opportunity to join the NFL 
ranks in 2008. Taylor was drafted by the Carolina Panthers and Barth (Kan- 
sas City) and Mapp (Green Bay) signed free agent NFL contracts. 

But statistics and draft choices don't reveal the full story. Davis has 
hired an outstanding staff of assistant coaches, brought in back-to-back 
recruiting classes stocked with some of the nation's top high school players, 
and produced an entertaining product on the field. In addition, the Univer- 
sity is in the early stages of a major renovation of Kenan Stadium that will 
include a new academic support center for all of Carolina's student-athletes, 
a fifth floor to the Kenan Football Center for additional football operations, 
a new press box and new suites and club seating options. With Davis at the 
helm, the football future is bright in Chapel Hill. 

No stranger to success. Davis has coached in 1 1 postseason bowl games 
as an assistant or head coach, including two apiece in the Fiesta, Orange and 
Sugar Bowls, and he either recruited or coached nearly all the players 
from Miami's 2001 national championship team. He also won two 
Super Bowls as an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys. 
An excellent motivator and technician, Davis recruited or 
coached a number of players at Miami who were selected in 
the NFL Draft, including an amazing 28 first-round picks. 
Prior to his arrival in Chapel Hill. Davis served 
as an analyst on the NFL Network for two seasons. 
There he was able to watch and study the latest college 
football offensive and defensive schemes. Yearning to 
return to the college coaching ranks, Davis surveyed the 
college football landscape, and when the Carolina job 
came open, he was immediately interested. 
"When 1 looked at everything North Carolina had to 
offer in terms of a great campus setting, access to play- 
ers and the proper balance between athletics and 
academics. I knew this would be a good fit for 
me and my family," said Davis. 

Davis was head coach for six seasons at 
Miami ( 1995-2000) and led the Hurricanes 
to a 5 I -20 record, three Big East Confer- 
ence championships and four postseason 
bowl wins in as many appearances. He 
took over a Miami program faced with 
NCAA sanctions that restricted the number 
of scholarships in his first three seasons. 
However, his Hurricane teams finished 
ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 on 
four occasions, including No. 2 in the na- 
tion in 2000, when the Canes went 11-1 and 
beat Florida. 37-20, in the Sugar Bowl. 
In his first year in Coral Gables. Davis 
helped the Canes earn a share of the Big East 
Conference Championship by winning seven 
/ straight games to close the '95 season. The team 
^/ would have received an invitation to a BCS bowl 
game, however, Miami declined the invitation due 
to NCAA sanctions previously approved by univer- 
sity officials for violations prior to Davis's arrival. 
Davis again led Miami to a share of the Big East 
title in 1996 and catapulted the Hurricanes to a top 20 
ranking and their first bowl victory in five years with 
a 31-21 win over Virginia in the Carquest Bowl. The 
following season he led Miami to a 46-23 win over 
North Carolina State in the 1998 Micron PC Bowl.

What Others Are Saying 
About Butch Davis: 



"Coach Davis taught me how to be a professional player. I 
know I still have a lot to learn, but I think I understand more 
of what it takes to be an NFL player now than I did before. I 
wouldn't be a first-round draft pick without his help and guid- 
ance." 

Kentwan Balmer, Defensive Tackle 
Taken in the first-round of the 2008 NFL Draft 



"North Carolina is extremely fortunate to have a man like Coach Davis in 
their corner. He is above and beyond a players' coach. He's a family coach. 
He helped me so much both on and off the field in preparation for my NFL 
days, and I will forever be grateful. I'd keep an eye out on their program for 
years to come because the man is special and he's going to make many people 
happy." 

Reggie Wayne, Wide Receiver 
Indianapolis Colts 

"Coach Davis does everything he can to run his opera- 
tion and prepare his players for success at the highest level 
possible. He prepares his players and his team as if it were 
a professional program. His players will be well-equipped 
for the NFL level because he puts his players in a position to 
succeed on the college level like it were a pro team. He runs a 
program like no other, when guys come in as 19-year olds or 
whatever the case may be, he molds them into men as play- 
ers and as people. He gets his players focused on the important things within 
the team and school and has the respect of his players for them to act the right 
way." 

Santana Moss, Wide Receiver 
Washington Redskins 

"His office door is always open if guys need to go up there to talk to him. 
Whether it's about football or a personal issue, he's a guy that is going to open 
his door to you and be honest with you. He's more like a father figure." 

Damione Lewis, Defensive Tackle 
Carolina Panthers 



"Butch Davis worked for me for many years and did a great 
job. He is an outstanding coach and recruiter, and North 
Carolina is extremely fortunate to obtain him. I'm sure he'll 
do a great job." 

Jimmy Johnson, 

Fox Sports NFL Analyst, 

Former Miami (Fla.) & NFL Head Coach 



"One of the things you'll find out about Butch is how much he cares about 
people. You could see that in the fifth and sixth grade and you could see that 
all through college. He's a person who once he gets to know you. will always 
remember you and stay in touch with you. His concerns are not about what you 
do on the football field, his concerns are what you do as a young man. about 
being respectful to your family, about being respectful to the community and 
being thoughtful to your teammates and fellow students. He wants to prepare 
young men who will go on and be successful beyond the football field because 
football is only temporary." 

John Tyson, Chairman of Tyson Foods 
Friend of Davis's since the second grade 

"Butch Davis is a man of integrity, who is a superb coach with great people 
skills. He is an excellent role model with a strong commitment to his profession 
and calling, which enables him to recruit quality players who win on the play- 
ing field and prepares them for a life after football. ... 1 believe he is an excel- 
lent choice for the job."

ASSISTANT COACH PROFILE - JOHN BLAKE 




Associate Head Coach 

Recruiting Coordinator 

Defensive Line Coach 

2nd Year at Carolina 
20th Year Overall 



John Blake enters his seeond season on the North Carolina staff as the Tar 
Heels' assoeiate head coach, recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach. 
Blake, who coached with Butch Davis in Dallas, has developed some of the top 
defensive linemen in the country at all levels, including high school, college and 
the NFL. 

In 2007, North Carolina defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer and Hilee Taylor 
had their best seasons in just one year under Blake. They were both taken in 
the 2008 NFL Draft, and Balmer, a defensive tackle, was selected by the San 
Francisco 49ers with the 29th pick in the first round. He became the 17th overall 
first-round draft pick in North Carolina history after finishing his senior season 
with a career-high 59 tackles and 9.5 tackles for losses. Taylor was second in the 
ACC in sacks and third in tackles for losses and was selected in the seventh round 
by the Carolina Panthers. 

Blake earned rave reviews from NFL Draft analysts for his ability to develop 
Balmer into a first-round selection in just one year of coaching. "Kentwan had a 
great senior year under the tutelage of John Blake, who I think is one of the best 
defensive line coaches at any level," said ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. 

Blake's defensive line played a major role in the Tar Heels' defense improving 
more than 60 positions from the previous year in the NCAA statistical rankings. 
Balmer and Taylor both had career years, while E.J. Wilson, Aleric Mullins and 
Marvin Austin also showed 
steady progress. 

In addition to his 
abilities as a defen- 
sive line coach, Blake is 
considered by many ob- 
servers as the nation's top 
recruiter. Most recently, CSTV's Tom 
Lemming named Blake the top recruiter 
in the country in 2008. Blake also was selected by 
the Wall Street Journal and American Football Quarterly a: 
one of the nation's top three recruiters in 2007. 

In February, Carolina signed its second consecutive outstanding 
recruiting class under Blake's guidance. The previous year. Blake was 
responsible for the recruitment of Austin, the nation's No. 1 high school 
defensive player. 

Blake came to Carolina after serving three seasons at the University of 
Nebraska, where he coached several outstanding defensive linemen, in- 
cluding 2007 NFL first-round draft pick Adam Carriker (13th ovei 
his first year, the Huskers ranked second in the Big 12 and 1 1th nationally 
in rushing defense. Nebraska allowed just 104.0 yards rushing per game, 
including a league-low 2.9 yards per attempt. In 2005, Nebraska's defense 
ranked in the top 30 nationally in all four major defensive categories, in- 
cluding being the top-ranked unit in the country for sacks and tackles for loss. 
In 2006, Nebraska was 9-4 during the 
regular season and accepted an invitation 
to play Auburn in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 
1 , 2007. The Huskers defensive line was 
ranked the top defensive line unit in the 
country by CollegeFootballNews.com. 
Blake also coached in the Huskers' 32-28 
win over Michigan in the 2005 Alamo 





Bowl. 

Blake's role in helping bring some of 
the country's most talented players to the 
University of Nebraska led to his inclu- 
sion as a finalist for National Recruiter of 
the Year by Rivals.com in 2006. He also 
was responsible for recruiting the major- 
ity of the starters on Oklahoma's 2000

head coach Browning has worked under at North Carolina. Browning also 
oversees Carolina's camps and clinics. 

Last year. Browning had the unique challenge of coaching a position 
group comprised of all freshmen and sophomores. In fact. Carolina began 
2007 with just one player who had any experience as a college running back. 
That player was sophomore Richie Rich, who later moved to cornerback. 
Carolina's top four rushers last season were all freshmen - Johnny White. 
Greg Little, Anthony Elzy and Ryan Houston. Little started the last two 
games against Georgia Tech and Duke and enters 2008 as the likely starter. 

In 14 seasons in Chapel Hill, Browning has developed a number 
of outstanding players, including first-round NFL draft picks 
Vonnie Holliday (DT), Marcus Jones (DT/DE) and Ryan 
Sims (DT) and second-round picks Rick Terry (DT 
and Russell Davis (DT). He also recruited and 
coached 2008 first-round NFL draft pick Kentwan 
Balmer. Sports Illustrated selected North Carolina's 
defensive tackles in its positional "Dream Team" in 
its 1998 preseason college football issue. Nearly every 
defensive tackle Browning coached at UNC has been 
drafted by or signed by an NFL franchise. In 2002, Sims, 
who played under Browning for three years, was 
selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first 
round with the No. 6 pick. 

Browning is in his second stint coaching 
on the offensive side of the ball at UNC. He 
coached Carolina's tight ends for four sea- 
sons (2001-04), where he developed several 
standout players, including NFL players 
Zach Hilton and Bobby Blizzard. 

With Browning on the defensive side 
of the ball, the Tar Heels led the ACC in 
total defense from 1995-97 and finished 
No. 2 in the nation in yards allowed in 1996 
and 1997. The Tar Heels were third in the 
country against the run in 1996 allowing 73.9 
yards per game. In 1997. Carolina was fourth 
in the nation stopping the run as opponents 
averaged 77.9 yards per contest. UNC held 
opponents to less than 50 yards rushing in 
six games and less than 100 yards in nine of 
12 games. 

Promoted to defensive coordinator in 
2000. Browning directed a UNC squad that 
set a school record with an ACC-best 53 
sacks. Carolina finished 19th in the nation 
against the run. allowing just 103.5 yards 
per game, and was second in the league 
and 30th in the nation in total defense. 

One of the state's most decorated high 
school coaches. Browning joined the Tar

John Shoop enters his second season as North Carolina's offensive coor- 
dinator and quarterbacks coach. 

Despite working with an offense that featured just one senior starter, 
Shoop developed an exciting offense led by a pair of record-setting skill 
players in 2007. Quarterback T.J. Yates set the single-season school record 
in passing yards and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks set a school mark with 74 
receptions. Yates, an unknown prior to the start of the season finished fourth 
all-time among ACC freshmen in single-season passing yardage and was 
selected first-team freshman All-America by The Spoiling News. 

Nicks, a second-team All-ACC selection, had 958 yards receiving (third 
highest total in school history) and five touchdowns. Fellow wide receiver 
Brandon Tate became one of the best big-play threats in the conference, 
averaging more than 19 yards per catch. Entering the year with 
just five receptions in the two previous seasons, Tate caught 
25 balls for 479 yards and five touchdowns in Shoop's 
offense. Versatile freshman tailback/wide receiver Greg 
Little increased his production as the season evolved and 
was the team's leading rusher in each of the last two games, 
including a 158-yard, two-touchdown effort in an overtime 
win over Duke. 

Looking ahead to 2008, Carolina returns its top four 







rushers and all but 
one of the starting offen- 
sive linemen, including all-star 
candidate Garrett Reynolds. 

Shoop came to Chapel Hill after 
serving two seasons with the Oakland Raiders. He was 
Oakland's quarterbacks coach in 2005. the tight ends 
coach in 2006 and was elevated to offensive coordinator 
for the final five games of the 2006 season. 

Shoop spent the 2004 season as quarterbacks coach 
for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers under head coach Jon 
Gruden. He worked five seasons (1999-2003) for 
the Chicago Bears under head coach Dick Jauron 
including three as the offensive coordinator 
(2001-03). Shoop was promoted to 
Chicago's offensive coordinator posi- 
tion after spending the 1999-2000 sea- 
sons as the Bears quarterbacks coach. 
At the time, he was one of the youngest 
coordinators in NFL history. 

In his first season as the coordina- 
tor in Chicago, Shoop revitalized the 
Chicago offense and helped lead the 
Bears to the NFC Central Division 
title with a 13-3 record. That season, 
tailback Anthony Thomas earned Of- 
fensive Rookie of the Year honors after 
setting a Bears' rookie rushing record 
with 1 ,183 yards, and quarterback Jim

ASSISTANT COACH PROFILE - EVERETT WITHERS 



Charlotte, N.C., native Everett Withers enters his first year as North Caro- 
lina's defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach. 

Withers came to North Carolina after serving one season as the University 
of Minnesota's defensive coordinator in 2007. 

Withers spent six seasons with the Tennessee Titans from 2001-06 under 
head coach Jeff Fisher. From 2002-04, Withers helped the Titans defense 
tally 57 interceptions, which was the most for the franchise 
over a three-year period since 1993-95. The 57 intercep- 
tions also ranked fourth in the AFC and eighth overal 
during that time. The Titans totaled 21 picks in 2004, 
including 16 by the secondary. 

In 2002, Withers directed a revamped secondary that 
added safeties Lance Schulters and rookie Tank Wil- 
liams. The new arrangement helped the defense earn a top 
10 ranking and Schulters' six interceptions were the most 
by a Titans safety since 1993. Withers also developed 
Andre Dyson into a starter as a rookie in 2001 and 
helped him total 16 interceptions during his four- 
year Titan career, including six his final season. 

Prior to working with the Titans, Withers 
was defensive backs coach under Mack Brown 
at Texas from 1998-2000, where he guided a 
Longhorns secondary which improved from 
75th in the nation in pass defense in 1997 
(132.7 efficiency rating) to first in the nation 
in 2000 (88.02). Withers is credited with 
helping a young corps of defensive backs 
improve in a number of statistical categories. 

Withers joined the Longhorns after three 
seasons (1995-97) as defensive coordinator 
at Louisville. His 1996 defensive unit ranked 
fourth nationally in both total defense (235.8) 
and rushing defense (81.1) and led the NCAA 
in forced turnovers (41). While at Louisville, 
Withers helped current New York Giants All- 
Pro cornerback Sam Madison earn All-Americ; 
honors for the Cardinals. 

Withers' first National Football League experi- 
ence came with the New Orleans Saints where he 
worked as defensive quality control in 1994. Prior to 
his experience with the Saints, Withers was defensive 
backs coach at Southern Mississippi 
for two seasons (1992-93) and outside 
linebackers coach at Tulane in 1991. The 
first three years of Withers' coaching 
career came at Austin Peay. where he 
was defensive coordinator (1988-89) 
and special teams/wide receivers coach 
(1990). 

Withers earned his bachelor's degree 
from Appalachian State in 1985. He was 
also a standout defensive back and cap- 
tain for the Mountaineers from 1981-85. 
Withers and his wife, Kara, have two 
children, Tia and Pierce.

42nd Year at Carolina 
12th Year as Athletic Director 



Goldsboro native and Tar Heel alumnus Dick Baddour is in his 12th year 
as Director of Athletics and his 42nd at the University of North Carolina. 
Baddour directs one of the most highly acclaimed and respected athletic pro- 
grams in the country, known for its commitment to academic integrity and 
competitive excellence in men's and women's sports. 

Baddour currently has the third-longest tenure as athletic director in the 
ACC and is one of three to serve as athletic director at Carolina for 10 or 
more years since the league was formed in 1954. 

The Tar Heels have won 58 ACC championships during his tenure, 
1 1 more than Duke, which is second. Nineteen different UNC men's and 
women's sports have won conference titles during his tenure. UNC has led 
the league in team championships in seven of the last 1 1 seasons. Last year, 
field hockey won the national championship with an unbeaten season, men's 
basketball won its second consecutive ACC title and played in the Final 
Four, the women's basketball team went undefeated in ACC play and won its 
fourth consecutive ACC championship and the baseball team advanced to the 
College World Series for an ACC record-tying third straight year. 

The Tar Heels led all ACC schools in 2008-09 with a 14th place finish 
nationally in the US Sports Academy Directors' Cup. Carolina has averaged 
an eighth-place finish in Baddour's 1 1 years at the helm (the Directors' Cup 
measures NCAA postseason performance). UNC has finished first among 
ACC schools in the Directors' Cup nine times in the last 1 1 years. At least 
23 of 28 Tar Heel teams have qualified for NCAA postseason competition in 
each of the last three seasons. 

During Baddour's tenure, the Tar Heels have won national championships 
in men's basketball, men's and women's soccer and field hockey, won two 
football bowl games and had numerous Top 10 national finishes in Olympic 
Sports. UNC has won 23 individual national 
titles in the last seven seasons. 

Baddour has hired head coaches in eight 
sports, overseen renovations or created plans 
to update virtually every facility in the athletic 
complex, expanded the direction and staffing 
for student-athlete services and worked tire- 
lessly to set the program on sound financial 
footing. 

Baddour emphasizes academic achievement 
and the overall student experience. Last year, 
295 student-athletes made the ACC Academic 
Honor Roll, 303 earned Dean's List honors, and 
every program fared well in the NCAA's APR. 
Baddour initiated the concept for the Carolina 
Leadership Academy, a training program for 
student-athletes, coaches and administrators, 
which has completed its fourth year. The 
program develops leadership skills through 
interactive workshops, 360-degree feedback, 
one-on-one coaching, peer mentoring and edu- 
cational resources. Carolina's coaches consider 
the program an overwhelming success and a

Baddour has made it a top priority to ensure 
the athletic department stays financially strong.

the scholarship endowment to 
$190 million. He worked out 
funding for several facility 
enhancement projects, scholar- 
ships and operating budgets. 
He negotiated partnerships 
with Nike to outfit the athletic- 
program, with Learfield Com- 
munications to direct UNC's 
multi-media properties, and 
with Wachovia for on-site 
sponsorship in the Smith Cen- 
ter. The Nike deal was widely 
praised as one of the most 
socially conscious contracts of 
its kind with respect to global 
labor issues. With regard to the 
Wachovia contract. Baddour 
was credited with working 
diligently over several years 
to balance the Carolina culture 
ami the need for sound finan- 
cial partnerships. 

The athletic department 
and Rams Club moved into 
the Ernie Williamson Athlet- 
ics Center in December 2007 
and the Carolina Basketball 
Museum opened its doors a 
month later. More than 25.000 visitors toured the museum in its first six 
months. Currently, he is overseeing major facility projects designed for 
Kenan Stadium. Boshamer Stadium, Carmichael Auditorium, sports medi- 
cine and wrestling. Kenan Stadium will undergo a multi-year renovation that 
will begin after the 2008 season; Boshamer was closed for renovations last 
year, but is scheduled to open again in 2009: and Carmichael will be closed 
for renovations throughout the upcoming season. All three of those projects 
mark the greatest period of refurbishments since each respective facility was 
first built. 

Baddour began his UNC career in 1967 as assistant dean of men. In 197 1 
he became assistant dean of undergraduate 
admissions. He served as Assistant Dean at the 
UNC School of Law from 1983 to 1986. He 
served as the school's director of admissions 
and scholarship programs, head of personnel 
and supervisor of career planning and place- 
ment. 

Baddour spent 1 1 years as John Swofford's 
top assistant before being named the Director 
of Athletics on June 25. 1997. In 2001 . he re- 
ceived a Distinguished Service Medal from the 
UNC General Alumni Association. 

Baddour and his wife, Lynda, have three 
children. Allen, a superior court judge for 
Orange and Chatham Counties, and his wife. 
Holly, have two sons, Henry and Jack; David, 
an attorney with RTP-based Womble-Carlyle, 
and his wife, Carey, have two daughters, Lau- 
ren and Julia, and son, Johnathan; Jennifer, a 
family therapist in private practice in Cary, is 
married to Kevin Snead.

Holden Thorp 






One of our own begins 
with ambitious plans 
for serving North 
Carolina and beyond 



holden thorp, one of Carolina's own 
took office July 1 as the University's 10th 
chancellor — a job he calls the best in 
American public higher education — 
following a national search. He will be 
installed on University Day, Oct. 12. 

Thorp, dean of unc's College of Arts 
and Sciences since July 2007, succeeded 
James Moeser, who last September an- 
nounced plans to step down June 30th 
after eight years and, after a year's re- 
search leave, return as a professor. 

A 1986 unc graduate, Thorp, 43, has 
rapidly progressed through several 
leadership posts since joining the fac- 
ulty 15 years ago. He quickly became an 
award-winning teacher and nationally 
recognized researcher, rising to the level 
of Kenan Professor in 2005. 

A native of Fayetteville, Thorp also 
chaired the highly regarded department 
of chemistry, where he has been a full 
professor since 1999. He was faculty 



We have so much work ahead 

of us. Our to-do list is nothing 
less than the greatest problems 
of our time: Cure diseases, and 
get those cures to all the people 
who need them. Find and invent 
clean energy. Inspire students in 
our public schools. Feed seven 
billion people. Describe the 
world, and replace conflict with 
understanding." 



CHANCELLOR 




director of a fundraising effort attract- 
ing about $17 million for the Carolina 
Physical Science Complex as part of the 
Carolina First Campaign. 

From 2001 to 2005, Thorp directed 
the Morehead Planetarium and Sci- 
ence Center, guiding efforts to expand 
the planetarium's original emphasis to 
become a comprehensive science educa- 
tion center for North Carolina. 

Thorp has published more than 
130 scholarly articles on the electronic 
properties of dna and rna. He invented 
technology for electronic dna chips 
that is the basis of 19 issued or pending 
u.s. patents. One invention provides a 
less expensive blood test to determine 
if prospective parents carry the cystic 
fibrosis gene. For his dna chip technol- 
ogy, Thorp was recognized as one of 
the Top Innovators of 2001 by Fortune 
Small Business magazine; 



North Carolina, in spite of the 
difficulties we face, promises 
a great future. Why? Because 
the idea of a research university 
— a place where research 
and teaching are done by 
the same people — is a bold 
and audacious idea, the very 
fabric of American prosperity 
and innovation. There's one 
idea that's even better than a 
research university — and that's 
a public research university." 



Thorp received his bachelor of science 
degree with highest honors in chemistry 
from unc in 1986. He earned a doctorate 
in chemistry from the California Institute 
of Technology in 1989, and started his 
faculty career at n.c. State University.

Annual Fund 

Donations through the Annual Fund offers The Rams Club 
the opportunity to meet immediate funding needs-primarily 
the funds needed to bridge the difference between the 
endowment's yield and the actual scholarship costs and 
other important projects for Carolina's student-athletes. 



ENDOWMENT 



The Hams Club's Scholarship Endowment Trust is the 
largest athletic scholarship endowment in the nation. 
The Scholarship Endowment Trust is built upon gifts 
from Carolina supporters who have endowed Full or 1 lall 
Scholarships in support of student-athletes which provide in 
perpetuity the support to a broad-based athletics program. 




As the Rams Club's planned giving program, Carolina Eorever 
offers donors an opportunity to make a lasting impact by 
involving Carolina Athletics in their estate planning. Carolina 
Forever's mission is to insure that the university continues to 
provide in perpetuity the unique opportunity to experience 
what it means to be a Tar Heel student-athlete in a broad- 
based athletics program. 

Sports Endowments 

The Sport Endowments program provides additional 
funding for the operating budgets of each of the 28 sports. 
Donors can make gifts to an individual sport with the yield 
from that trust made available to the appropriate coach 
for use in budget-enhancing activities like recruiting, team 
travel, assistant coaches' salaries and more. With the gifts 
designated into an endowment, these gifts will provide a 
continuous stream of usable income in perpetuity.

NORTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL 




Carolina football plays its home games at Kenan 
Memorial Stadium (cap. 60.000). one of the most pictur- 
esque athletic venues in America. Kenan Stadium has been 
the home ot the Tar Heels since 1927 and the thrill of play- 
ing in or attending a game there is as exhilarating now as it 
was when it was first constructed. 

Considering its majestic setting among the Carolina 
pines, many observers say Kenan Stadium is the most 
beautiful football facility in the country. One national sports 
magazine rated Kenan one of the five best places in America 
to watch a college football game. For scenery, atmosphere 
and charm, it cannot be surpassed. 

The stadium has been expanded several times since its 
completion in 1927. In each instance, though, great care 
was taken to keep its fundamental beauty intact. The addi- 
tion of the Frank H. Kenan Football Center and the North 
Side Stadium Preferred Seating Box in 1997 have further 
enhanced the stadium's status as a campus landmark. 

The Kenan Football Center houses the Carolina football 
program, including the locker rooms, weight room, training 
room, equipment room, players' lounge, computer labs and 
study areas. 100-plus seat auditorium, coaches' offices, the- 
ater and Hall of Honor. 

The Charlie Justice Hall of Honor, located on the 
ground floor, is a multi-media history of Carolina football. 
Photographs, awards, trophies and artifacts detailing the rich 
and storied history of the sport in Chapel Hill are on display. 
The players who have been honored by placing their names 
and numbers on display in the stadium arc also featured in 
the Hall of Honor. Special plaques, flags and an audio-visual 
presentation on each player are highlighted. 

The James A. Hcawici Theater was made possible by 
;t special gift by the former executive producer of the Tar 
Heel Sports Network and president of Vilcom. The theater 
is a 30-person mini-theater equipped with surround sound 
and seven dramatic videos presenting the history of UNC 
football. 

A number of rooms in the Kenan Football Center have 
been dedicated in the honor or memory of Carolina's 
benefactors, fans and athletic personalities Thev include 
the Brinkley Lounge, the fourth floor reception area 
named for Harvey M. Brinkley Jr.; the Don McCauley/ 
Paul Miller Head Coach's Suite: the Norman M. (Buddy) 



Black Jr. Lounge, the fourth floor hospitality area; the Oscar 
Davenport/Chris Keldorf Quarterback Meeting Room, 
as given by Bob Biggerstaff; the Jo Allison Clary Smith 
Weight Room; the Carolina Football Players" Locker Room, 
named in behalf ol the more than 400 former Tar Heels 
who donated more than $2 million to the proiect; the Nassit 
Offensive Staff Meeting Room; the Ann and Paul Lawing 
Coaches' Locker Room; Koury Box North, box seating on 
the north side of the stadium named for Maurice J. Koury; 
the John W. Pope Academic Support Facility; the John W. 
Pope Stadium Box. a stadium box on the north side; the 
John D. Swofford Auditorium and the Jimmy \V. Garrell 
coaches meeting room. 

The 1997 expansion project, in which great care was 
taken to ensure that the surrounding environment would be 
altered as little as possible, ties the north and south con 
courses to either end of the lower deck via the third level 
ol the Kenan Center, making tan movement around the 
stadium much easier. That project also added nearly 8,000 
seals, a state-of-the-art football facility, chancellor's box and 
preferred seating box. The renovation and expansion project 
was financed through a combination of private contributions 
through the Educational Foundation and bonded indebted- 
ness from the athletic department through the sale of reve- 
nue-generating bonds. The Educational Foundation and its 
members committed more than $50 million to the project. 

The most recent additions to Kenan Stadium are two rib- 
bon videoboards on the facade of the North and South side 
upper levels. In 2003. a $2 million scoreboard at the east 
end ot the stadium was added. The scoreboard was financed 
through an agreement with Learfield Communications. 
UNC's multi-media rights holder. The $2-million-figure 
includes the cost of the video board, installation and a new 
public address system. Over 40 new speakers were added 
throughout Kenan Stadium 

The football center is named in honor ol the late Frank 
H. Kenan, one of the school's most generous benefactors. 
Kenan was a Durham resident and chief executive officer ot 
Kenan Transport Company in Chapel Hill. He passed away 
at age S3 in 1996. 

Kenan, a 1935 Carolina graduate, was the great-great- 
grandson of General James Kenan, a member of the 
University's founding board of trustees. An Atlanta native, 



Kenan had a tremendous impact on the growth of the 
University. He served on many campus boards, including 
the Board of Visitors and the Educational foundation Board 
of Directors. 

In recent years the William R. Kenan Jr Charitable 
Trust, of which he was a trustee, has donated more than 
$100 million to schools in the state's consolidated university 
system, including Carolina. NC State and the N.C. School 
of the Arts. Among other things, the trust lunds 92 William 
R. Kenan Jr. Professorships at 56 colleges and universities 
nationwide. 

Kenan served on the steering committee of Carolina's 
Bicentennial Campaign, the University's largest fund-raising 
effort. Gifts by him. his family and the trust during the 
campaign exceeded $31 million The largest portion of that 
was targeted for the business school. In 1991 the school 
was renamed the Kenan-Flagler Business School after a $10 
million gift. 

The preferred seating box that rises above the second 
deck of the grandstand on the north side of the stadium has 
outdoor seating lor almost 1 ,200 spectators That includes 
the Chancellor's Box on the second level of the box 45 
feet above the ground. The fourth level. OS feet high, has 
outdoor seating for more than 1 .000. plus concessions and a 
7.500 square foot lounge. There is a smaller lounge and food 
preparation areas on the third floor. 

The Kenan Football Center and preferred seating box are 
the predominant changes in a multi-year renovation plan that

2008 NORTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL 



KENAN STADIUM - HOME OF THE TAR HEELS 







began in 1995. A new playing field was installed that spring 
The new turf includes an improved drainage system beneath 
the field that drains through the field itself rather than off 
the sides of the field as in the past. Prior to the 1996 season 
the restrooms and concession stands were expanded and 
renovated. 

Another significant stadium expansion took place prior 
to 1988 and involved adding 2.000 choice seats between 
the 40-yard lines where the press box and chancellor's box 
formerly stood. A new press box was constructed on top of 
the upper deck on the stadium's south side. It is a one-level 
elongated structure, running from 10-yard line to 10-yard 
line. 

Also part of the 1987-88 project were a permanent light- 
ing system, a chancellor's lounge on the north side of the 
field and a football lettermen's lounge on the south side. 
The lights are part of a General Electric low-mount system 
which minimizes the height of the lightpoles. Cost of the 
entire project was $7 million. It was funded by private gifts 
and bonds. 

William Rand Kenan Jr. deserves the credit for originally 
making the stadium a part of the University. He was born 
in North Carolina in 1873 and graduated from Carolina 
in 1894. An international industrialist, Kenan discovered 
carbide and made monumental progress in the field of chem- 
istry. During his business career he was president of The 
Florida Hast Coast Railroad, The Florida East Coast Hotel 
Company, The West Palm Beach Water Company and the 
Florida East Coast Car Ferry Company. 

He was a director of Florida Power and Light Company 
and built the first power plant in Miami in the early 1900s. 

The stadium was built as a memorial to his parents, 
William R. Kenan and Mary Hargrave Kenan. Construction 
began in November 1926 and was completed the following 
August. Complete cost of the stadium and accompanying 
fieldhouse was $303,000. 

Originally, the stadium was to be built through funds 
raised by alumni donations, and by June 1926, a group ol 
nearly 40 alumni had contributed $27,926. At this time, 
however, a copy of the prospectus and plan of financing the 
stadium came into the hands of Kenan, who expressed an 
interest in the proposal. Kenan was considering establish- 
ing a memorial to his parents, and the pressing need for 
a stadium and the possibilities of the beauty, dignity and 
permanence it presented, suggested to him that the benefac- 
tion he contemplated may well take the form of a memorial 
stadium. The Stadium Committee immediately endorsed his 
proposal and on the very day in November 1926 on which 
Kenan visited the planned site, he announced his financial 
gift to build the stadium. 

Kenan remained very interested in Kenan Stadium 
throughout his lifetime. In the 1950s he gave a SI, 000 ,000 



contribution to construct a second deck on the stadium. 
After Kenan's death in 1965 the William R. Kenan Jr. 
Charitable Trust, which was established by his will, donated 
$1 .000.000 to enlarge and modernize Kenan Fieldhouse. 

In 1988 the Kenan Trust made another $1,000,000 gift 
to complete the new chancellor's box on the North Side. 
Another lasting memory of William R. Kenan Jr. is the 
Kenan Athletic Scholarship Endowment, valued at over 
$1 .000,000. Each year a student-athlete is awarded a full 
scholarship from this fund. 

Besides giving the stadium to the University, Mr. 
Kenan also sponsored and financed the famous Kenan 
Professorships. He was awarded the honorary degree of 
LL.D. by his alma mater in 1944. 

In the first game played there. Carolina defeated 
Davidson. 27-0. on November 12. 1927. 

Carolina's all-time record at Kenan Stadium is 
249-162-16. The most points scored by the Tar Heels in 
Kenan came in the third game played there as Carolina 
whipped Wake Forest, 65-0, in the 1928 season opener. 

As originally built, the stadium seated 24,000. However, 
in 1963 the benefactor added portable stands and then an 
upper deck to the permanent stands, which increased capac- 
ity to 48,000. That was expanded to 50.000 in 1979, 52,000 
in I98X, 57,500 in 1997 and 60.000 in 1998. 

At the East end of the stadium is the Kenan Fieldhouse. 
home of the Student-Athlete Development Center. A 20,000 
square foot building, it is a one-of-a-kind facility. For study 
purposes, it contains a language lab. video room, computer 
lab. theatre-style lecture hall, several reading rooms and 
numerous tutorial rooms. UNC's academic counseling staff 
has the advantage of using the most modern techniques in 
assisting student-athletes. 

Capacity crowds have come to be expected at Kenan. In 
1997, the Tar Heels played in front of a record-shattering 
crowd of 62,000 on Nov. 8. 1997, as fifth-ranked Carolina 
battled No. 2 Florida State. The largest crowd to watch a 
game prior to the most recent major expansion was 54.300 
as Carolina defeated N.C. State, 31-17. in 1994. 

The 1983 season saw another first in the stadium — a 
game played under artificial lights. The Carolina-Duke game 
was played in the late afternoon so it could be televised 
throughout the ACC area. Portable lights were brought in 
since the second half was played alter sunset. Portable lights 
were also used in the 1987 Clemson game which was tele- 
vised nationally by ESPN. 

The 1991 season opener versus Cincinnati and that 
season's Clemson game, which was televised nationally by 
ESPN, were the first true night games ever played at Kenan 
Stadium.

2008 NORTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL 



2007 REVIEW NOTES 




DAVIS COMPLETES FIRST SEASON 

North Carolina completed its first season under 
head coach Butch Davis with a 20-14 overtime vic- 
tory over Duke on Nov. 24. The Tar Heels finished 
4-8 overall and 3-5 and fourth in the Coastal Divi- 
sion of the Atlantic Coast Conference. 

Highlights of the season included: 

• Sophomore wide receiver Hakeem Nicks set 
the single-season school record with 74 receptions, 
eclipsing the previous mark of 71 by Jarwarski 
Pollock in 2003. Nicks finished the season with 
74 catches for 958 yards, which ranks third on the 
UNC single-season list. 

• Senior place-kicker Connor Barth set the school 
record with 19 consecutive field goals and estab- 
lished the UNC career record with 54 made field 
goals. Barth made 30 of his last 33 career attempts, 
only missing from 49. 52 and 63 yards. 

• Junior kick returner Brandon Tate broke the 
ACC career record for kickoff return yards with 
2,383 yards. With one season remaining, Tate has a 
chance to eclipse the NCAA kickoff return mark of 
2.922 by Jeff Liggon of Tulane (1993-96). Tate also 
set UNC single-season records 39 kickoff returns 
and 939 kickoff return yards. 

• Redshirt freshman T.J. Yates set the single- 
season school record for most passing yards with, 
2,655. Yates also set UNC freshman marks for 
completions and attempts. 

• North Carolina's defense improved nearly 60 
positions in the NCAA rankings, moving from 92nd 
in 2006 to 35th in 2007. Carolina allowed 368.2 
yards in 2006 and 349.8 in 2007. 

• The Tar Heels nearly doubled its tackle for 
loss totals from a year ago, including 1 1 additional 
sacks. In 2007. UNC posted 83 tackles for loss 
and 34 sacks. The previous year, Carolina had 44 
tackles for loss and 23 sacks. 

• Durell Mapp had 132 tackles, ranking second in 
the ACC and 10th in the nation in tackles per game. 

• Freshman Greg Little converted from wide 
receiver to tailback for the final two games of the 
season and rushed for 243 yards (121 .5 avg) on 
50 carries and scored twice. He became the first 
Tar Heel in 2007 to top 100 yards rushing when 
he posted 154 yards on 26 carries vs Duke. His 
25-yard run on the first play of Carolina's overtime 
possession gave the Tar Heels a 20- 14 win. 

ATTENDANCE AT HIGHEST LEVEL IN A 
DECADE 

North Carolina sold out five of its six home foot- 
ball games in 2007 and averaged 57,417 fans, the 
most in more than a decade. Average attendance 
was up nearly 18 percent from the 2006 season 
when Carolina drew 48,857 per game. 

"The fan support this year was outstanding," said 
head coach Butch Davis. "1 appreciate all the sup- 
port of the Tar Heel fans. In particular, the students 
in the Tar Pit did a great job getting our players 
excited before kickoff and were a inspiration to our 
players and staff. We received positive feedback 
from prospects visiting campus and from those 
watching on TV on how impressive the student sec- 
tion and our fans were this year." 

On Oct. I 3 vs. South Carolina, the Tar Heels 
drew 61 ,000, the second-largest crowd in school 
history behind only the 1997 matchup with Florida 
State (62.000). Capacity of Kenan Stadium is 
60.000, but bleachers were brought in for two 
games this year against Miami and South Carolina.

Carolina 37, James Madison 14 

Sept. 1, 2007 

Chapel Hill, IM.C. 




CHAPEL HILL. N.C. (AP) 
- North Carolina got oil to a last 
start under new coach Butch Davis, 
getting three touchdown passes 
from first-time starter T.J. Yates to 
beat James Madison 37-14. 

Yates threw for 218 yards -- including a 65-yard 
score on his first college throw -- for the Tar Heels, 
who won their season opener for just the third time 
in a decade. Brooks Foster caught two touchdown 
passes, while redshirt freshman Anthony Elzy ran for 
a pair of short scores. 

North Carolina scored the first 24 points and 
never was threatened by James Madison (0- 1 ), 
a Football Championship Subdivision (formerly 
Division I-AA) program. It all started with Yates, a 
redshirt freshman, finding Foster on the third play 
for the long score that enthralled a sellout crowd still 
teeming with the optimism that began with Davis' 
arrival last fall. 

Davis, who rebuilt Miami into a powerhouse 
before spending four seasons with the Cleveland 
Browns, had to like what he saw from his new team. 
Despite plenty of youth and inexperience, the Tar 
Heels were efficient on offense while their defense 
- long a sore point in si\ struggle-filled seasons 
under coach John Bunting -- showed few chinks 
until the Tar Heels were in firm control against an 
overmatched opponent. 

Rodney Landers threw a touchdown pass for the 
Dukes, while Eugene Holloman ran for 82 yards.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) 

-- North Carolina quarterback T.J. 
~PlRBTES Yates threw lot 144 yards and three 
touchdowns in Carolina's 34-31 loss 
at Fast Carolina. It was only Fast 
Carolina's second victory in 1 1 tries — the last com- 
ing 32 years ago -- against the Tar Heels ( I - 1 ). 

In a game that went back and forth. Carolina 
seemed poised to lake a late lead, but the Tar Heels 
botched a 52-yard field goal attempt with a poor hold 
and ECU drove down for the winning field goal as 
time expired. 

ECU quarterback Patrick Pinkney threw for 406 
yards ami three touchdowns in his first start and Ben 
Hartman shook off three missed field goals to kick 
the vv inner on the final play. Chris Johnson added two 
touchdown catches and a rushing score for the Pirates 
( I - 1 ). who managed to hold on for a thrilling victory 
in their home opener against their instate rival. 

Hartman missed field goal attempts of 30, 32 
and 37 yards before nailing the 39-yarder on the final 
play. 

Brandon Tate scored three touchdowns for North 
Carolina, which suffered its first loss under new 
coach Butch Davis. 

The teams traded scores almost the entire way. 
Tate's 58-yard punt return for a score on the final 
play of the third quarter sent the game into the final 
period tied at 3 1 . Then came two missed field goals 
by Hartman, who hit the left upright on a 32-yard 
try on the Pirates' first possession of the fourth and 
missed a 37-yarder for the lead with about 3 minutes 
to play. 

On their final possession. ECU drove to North 
Carolina's 21-yard line. The Pirates then called 
timeout with 2 seconds left and Hartman made a 
39-yarder for the victory.

Tampa, Fla. 



TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The South 
Florida Bulls validated their first 
Top 25 ranking Saturday with a 
37-10 victory over North Carolina. 
Matt Grothe led long touch- 
down drives on USF's first two possessions, while 
the Bulls' swarming defense forced four turnovers 
and kept the young, rebuilding Tar Heels out of the 
end /one until just over a minute remained. 

Grothe completed 1 7 of 30 passes for 230 yards 
and one touchdown before being replaced by backup 
Grant Gregory in the fourth quarter. The Bulls (3-0) 
also rushed for 194 yards and outgained North Caro- 
lina (1-3) 428-164 overall. 

The Bulls marched 78 yards after the opening 
kickoff to take a 7-0 lead on Mike Ford's 5-yard 
touchdown run. then moved 83 yards in 10 plays 
on their next possession to go up 14-0 on Grothe \ 
12-yard scoring pass to Amaru Jackson. 

North Carolina redshirt freshman T..I. Yates 
found it difficult to throw against a USF secondary 
led by cornerbacks Trae Williams and Mike Jenkins. 

The Tar Heels forced two fumbles by Grothe, 
but both times Yates - harassed all day by a relentless 
pass rush - turned the ball back over to L'SF on inter- 
ceptions that set up held goals by Delbert Alvarado. 

The quarterback's third interception, on a play 
when he was flushed out of the pocket, led to Benja- 
min Williams' 5-yard TD run that put USF up 30-3 
late in the third quarter. 

Yates finished 1 1 of 27 for 85 yards and four 
interceptions. Ryan Houston scored North Carolina's 
only touchdown on a 5-yard run with 1:04 left.

and play, the players find out more about themselves 
and we find out more about them."

Oct. 6, 2007 
Chapel Hill, IM.O 



fll Hi CHAPEL HILL. N.C.(AP)- 

^M i^H Brandon Tate scored on a long 

J^ ^H end around in ,i spurt ol 27 points 

^^^" m ^^^ to start the game and Connor Barth 

kicked four field goals to help North 
Carolina hold off Miami 33-27. giving Butch Davis 
his first ACC win against a program he once built 
into a national champion. 

Anthony El/y ran for 95 yards and a score lor the 
Tar Heels (2-4. 1-2 ACC). who turned in a dominat- 
ing performance to take a 27-0 lead at halftime then 
hung on as the Hurricanes (4-2. 1 -1 ) twice rallied to 
within a touchdown in the second half. 

Davis had played down his first game against 
the Hurricanes earlier in the week and said after the 
game that beating Miami didn't make the victory 
anymore special. 

"Winning the game is the most important thing 
for this football team," he said. "My total focus is on 
the University of North Carolina football team and 
I'm just proud of the way our kids performed." 

The Tar Heels put together big plays when they 
needed them in the second half: a punt-forcing sack 
from Hilee Taylor to end a Miami drive near midfield 
late in the third quarter; a 49-yard eateh-and-run from 
Tate on the ensuing possession: and two fourth- 
quarter field goals from Barth that kept Miami in 
catch-up mode. 

Davis' new team got oft to a last start against 
Miami and Randy Shannon, who was a player and an 
assistant under Davis. 

But Miami did everything it could to get back in 
the game, with Darnell Jenkins scoring on a 97-yard 
touchdown catch that made it 27-20 late in the third 
quarter and Javarris James scoring on a short run to 
set up an onside kick with about a minute left. But 
the Hurricanes couldn't overcome the halftime deficit 
or four interceptions from Kyle Wright.

Chapel Hill, N.C. 

(II \l'l Mill I \ ( (AP) 
[M PJiBailJI ni - Connoi Barth kicked three held 
| .-Cj! j]j/-*4J goals and I J. Vates threw a touch- 
down pass to Hakeem Nicks to help 
Ninth Carolina snap a two game 
losing streak with a 16-13 victor) ovet Maryland. 

Freshman tailback Johnny White added a career- 
high 92 rushing yards Im the l.u Heels (3-6, 2-3 
ACC). 

Nicks, the team's leading receiver, finished with 
eight catches lor 88 yards. Yet, it was the defense that 
set the tone earl) lor North Carolina. Maryland man- 
aged only 3 yards on nine plays, quarterback Chris 
Turner was sacked once and leading rusher Keon 
Lattimore was held to a single yard. 

And the least penalized team in the ACC was 
flagged twice, nearly half its season average. 

Still, Maryland had a chance down the stretch. 
One final drive started on its own 23-yard line with 
2:49 left, and Turner completed lour consecutive 
passes to move the Terps to North Carolina's 41 . 
But on fourth-and-2, he was pressured by defensive 
tackle Kentwan Maimer and threw high toward the 
sideline, ending the drive w ith only 36 seconds 
remaining. 

Barth connected from 23 yards to break the 
scoreless tie in the second quarter. Maryland's Obi 
Egekeze tied with a 26-yarder with about 3 1/2 min- 
utes remaining in the lust half. 

Yates completed three consecutive passes - two 
to Brooks Foster - to give Barth another chance from 
45 yards out. and his kick broke the tie at 1:01. 

After the ensuing kickoff. Turner overthrew 
Darrius Hayward-Bey. and safety Trimaine Goddard 
intercepted it. Yates worked the hurry-up offense 
again, and his 20-yard completion led to another 
45-yard held goal for Barth. 

Yates' 30-yard touchdown pass to Hicks put 
North Carolina ahead, but Maryland found an of- 
fensive spark to make it close.

Raleigh, IM.C. 




RALEIGH. N.C. ( AP) - Jamelle 
Eugene ran for three touchdowns, 
including the go-ahead 1-yarder 
with 1:41 left, to help North Caro- 
lina State hold off North Carolina 
31-27 in a wild finish. 

Eugene finished with 159 yards rushing for the 
Wolfpack (5-5, 3-3 ACC), who ended a three-game 
losing streak in the instate rivalry. Daniel Evans 
also threw for a score as NC State blew a 17-point 
first-half lead before forcing a late turnover to set up 
Eugene's final score. 

The Tar Heels (3-7. 2-4) certainly made it 
interesting alter a terrible start, returning two 
interceptions for long touchdowns and getting a 
50-yard fullback pass as their only offensive score of 
the game. But they couldn't answer Eugene's final 
plunge, driving all the way to N.C. State's 7-yard line 
with 6.9 seconds left before coming up empty when 
T.J. Yates couldn't connect with Hakeem Nicks in the 
end zone on fourth down. 

Charles Brown returned an interception 92 yards 
for a touchdown and Kendric Buniey returned one 76 
yards for a 27-24 lead in the fourth quarter for North 
Carolina. 

But it almost turned into a morale-crunching loss. 
Brown's interception return in the first half gave the 
Tar Heels life after trailing 17-0. and Burney's grab- 
and-run of a hobbled pass put North Carolina ahead 
with 9:40 to play. Then, after North Carolina forced a 
three-and-out. the Tar Heels were in position to work 
on the clock and increase their lead. 

But Willie Young managed to pressure Yates in 
the pocket, hitting his arm and knocking the ball into 
the waiting arms of DeMario Pressley. That put the 
Wolfpack at North Carolina's 25-yard line with 5:38 
left, starting a slow march that ended when Eugene 
found an opening on the right side to put N.C. State 
ahead for iiood.

Atlanta, Ga. 




yy ATLANTA (AP)- Travis Bell 

atoned for an earlier miss by kicking 

a 27-yard field goal with 15 seconds 

left as Georgia Tech overcame four 

lost fumbles to beat North Carolina 

27-25. 

The Tar Heels had taken advantage of quarter- 
back Taylor Bennett's second fumble to go ahead 
25-24 with 5:50 remaining. 

Bell missed a 33-yard attempt with 2:31 to go, 
but the Yellow Jackets stopped North Carolina on 
three plays and got the ball back at their 50 after a 
29-yard punt by Terrence Brown. 

Tashard Choice, who had 33 carries lor 142 
yards, quickly moved Georgia Tech into field goal 
position. 

Bell made a 32-yard kick, but officials had 
waved the play dead because North Carolina had 1 2 
players on the field. 

After the penalty. Bell was good from 27 yards. 

North Carolina's Connor Barth had a 63-yard 
field goal attempt partially blocked on the final play. 

Greg Smith had six catches for 155 yards and 
two touchdowns for Georgia Tech (7-4, 4-4 ACC).

sacked by North Carolina's Da'Norris Searcy. Hilee 
Taylor recovered for the Tar Heels at the Georgia 
Tech 2, and Anthony Elzy scored from the 1 lor a 
25-24 lead. 

Georgia Tech answered with a drive to the North 
Carolina 16, but Bell's try was wide right. 

Freshman Greg Little made his first start at 
tailback and had 24 carries lor 89 yards for North 
Carolina. 

Another freshman, T.J. Yates, was 2 1 -of-35

Carolina 20, Duke 14 (OT) 
Nov. 24, 2007 
Chapel Hill, N.C. 




CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - 
Greg Little ran for a career-high 
154 yards and the go-ahead 25-yard 
score in overtime to lead North 
Carolina past Duke, 20-14. 

The converted wide receiver also had a leaping 
7-yard touchdown to tie it midway through the fourth 
quarter for the Tar Heels (4-8, 3-5 ACC). who closed 
their first season under coach Butch Davis with yet 
another win against their nearby rival. 

Thaddeus Lewis threw a pair of touchdown 
passes to Jomar Wright for the Blue Devils (111. 
0-8), who missed field goals on the final play of regu- 
lation and the first possession of overtime to suffer 
their 25th straight ACC loss. 

The loss came in typical painful fashion for the 
Blue Devils, who took a 14-7 lead early in the fourth 
quarter and had a solid defensive performance most 
of the way before seeing it come undone in the decid- 
ing minutes. 

It ended officially when Little, who became the 
first Tar Heel to run for more than 100 yards this 
year, sprinted through the right side and raced to the 
right side of the end zone on the first overtime play 
for North Carolina. 

But in some ways, it seemed over a few minutes 
before. Duke drove to the 23-yard line and called 
timeout lor a field goal with a second to play in regu- 
lation, only to see Nick Maggio go wide left on the 
40-yard kick as time expired. Then, after three plays 
netted only 2 yards, Joe Surgan - benched earlier this 
season for his kicking struggles - went wide left on a 
40-yarder for the lead to start overtime. 

For the Tar Heels, meanwhile, it was exactly 
what they wanted to close the year. They won for the 
17th time in 18 meetings dating to 1989 and head 
into the offseason with much more confidence.

GEORGE BARCLAY, GUARD, 1934 

Barclay was Carolina's first football All-America. 
The 5-11. 185-pound guard and linebacker was 
a three-year standout for Chuck Collins and Carl 
Suavely. A fine blocker and an extraordinary tackier. 
Barclay lined up in the offensive interior next to 
tackle Jim Tatum. He was captain of the 1934 team 
which went 7-1-1 . Barclay later served as head coach 
at Carolina for three seasons, from 1953 to 1955. 

ANDY BERSHAK, END, 1937 



A 185-pound end. Bershak was a two-way performer 
for the Tar Heels. He was a fine receiver, but was 
even better on defense. He played two years for Carl 
Snavely and one for Ray Wolf. Bershak. an honor 
student, was also a basketball starter. He was selected 
to the Order of the Golden Fleece and served as presi- 
dent of the Carolina Athletic Association. 

STEVE MARONIC, TACKLE, 1938 

Maronic was a two-way tackle for the Tar Heels 
and team co-captain in 1938. He was an "iron man." 
playing almost 60 minutes in every game that season. 
He turned in two of his best performances in front 
of the New York media against NYU at Yankee 
Stadium and Fordham at the Polo Grounds. Those 
games solidified his All-America chances. Maronic 
also was a place-kicker and hit 13 straight PATs in 
his final season. 

PAUL SEVERIN, END, 1939-40 




Severin was a two-time All-America selection by the 
Associated Press (1939 and 1940) and made most 
of the all-star teams in his senior season. His career 
was filled with big plays — a touchdown catch to tie 
Tulane in 1939. two scoring catches against Penn 
that same season and a touchdown-saving tackle from 
behind of Duke's great Steve Lach in a 6-3 win over 
the Blue Devils in 1940.

CHARLIE JUSTICE, HALFBACK, 194849 

Twice a runner-up for the Heisman Trophy, Justice 
is rated by many as the best all-around player in the 
history of Southern football. He was a true triple- 
threat performer, leading Carolina in rushing, passing 
and punting from 1946 to 1949. He sparked Tar Heel 
teams which appeared in the Sugar Bowl twice and 
the Cotton Bowl once. He was the school's all-time 
total offense leader with 4.883 yards for more than 40 
years and also ranks as the Tar Heels' fourth-leading

vears immediately following the Charlie Justice Era.

Charlie Justice 
was more than just a 
great football player. 
He was a bonafide 
superstar. ..a hero. ..a 
legend in his own 
time. He had an 
impact on his home 
state that no other 
athlete had ever had 
before or few have 
had since. 

During his tour 
years in Chapel Hill. 
from 1946 to 1949. 
Justice helped guide 
the Tar Heels to three major bowls. For one week 
during the 1948 season Carolina was ranked as the 
nation's No. I college football team. The far Heels 
ended that year rated third, the best finish in school 
history. 

It is no wonder then he was held in great esteem 
by everyone in the stale. Certainly, the time was 
right for a hero like Charlie Justice. World War II 
had just ended and people wanted to turn their atten- 
tion to more pleasant things. They wanted someone 
to help them forget the trauma they had just suffered 
So they looked for heroes and they found Charlie 
Justice. 

In his hook. They Made the Bell Tower Chime. 
Bob Quincy summed up Charlie Justice's college 
career quite succinctly. An excerpt is repeated here: 
The Justice era of 1946-49 was the most exciting 
in Carolina's football history. Charlie was the ring- 
leader of a circus of thrills. He set the pace, but his 
backing was superb. 

The Tar Heels operated from the single wing with 
the kinds of variations that at times resembled the 
Harlem Globetrotters' pre-game ball-handling act. 
The four seasons netted 32 victories, seven losses 
and two deadlocks, plus three major bowl appear- 
ances. 

The 170-pound Justice was one of the nation's 
most sought-after players when he enrolled at 
Carolina. Some called him the hottest property in 
the history of football at that time. He had been a 
standout at Ashe\ die's Lee Edwards High, leading 
the Maroons to two unbeaten seasons. He was All- 
Southern two years at Asheville. and as a member 
of the Shrine Bowl football team in 1942 he scored 
three touchdowns against South Carolina, a record 
that still stands. 

The Navy became home for Charlie during the 
war years, and he became a phantom on a pro-stud- 
ded Bainbridge Navy Squad. After two years ol 
romping for Bainbridge against opponents across 
the country, he was a target for pro otters from the 
Philadelphia Eagles and Washington. 

Charlie wanted an education, and scouts stayed 
in pursuit. He chose Chapel Hill after seriously 
considering South Carolina and Duke. An off-hand 
remark by Suavely — "! hope he comes out for 
football" — became a classic understatement. 
In the Virginia game his freshman year he 
gained 170 yards in 17 carries with runs ol IX. 40. 
and 56 yards, lie had seen little practice because of 
a leg injury, but the Cavaliers were certain he car- 
ried a spare appendage. 

Choo Choo (he acquired the name at Bainbridge 
when a gob remarked. "He runs along |iisi like 
a choo choo tram.") was excitement. He was all 
eagerness on the sidelines and all business when 



he moved into the tailback slot. He thrived on duty, 
and he was a master of the quick kick, a devastating 
rusher, a good passer, and a fake artist w ho could 
charm a cobra. 

Jack Fitch, a thick-legged back who occasionally 
shared duty with Justice when not playing on the 
wing, sized up Charlie's style by noting. "Justice has 
the ability to be running at full speed, stop suddenly, 
and then be back at full speed almost instantly. He 
was never regarded as fast in terms of a track man. 
He had a change of pace that couldn't be matched. 
and he knew how to follow blockers as well as any 
back I've ever watched." 

The Suavely system called for a spinning fullback, 
fakes and counter lakes, fullback pass pkt\s and 
reverses. It was a dashing brand of football 
made more exciting by players' ability and 
maturity to accept Snavely's often compli- 
cated maneuvers. 

A book, "Choo Choo", documents the 
career of Charlie Justice. He was a folk hero 
and deserved the special treatment. The 
great Benny Goodman and the late Johnny 
Long recorded the Campbell-Beebe song, 
"All The Way Choo Choo." It sold by the 
thousands. 

Typical of Justice was the Georgia game 
of 1948. He scored three times against the 
Bulldogs in a 2 I - 14 triumph, the climax 
being an 84-yard punt return. At mid-way 
point that season, the Tar Heels were ranked 
No. 1 in the nation. 

Justice erased more records than a com- 
pany of auditors during his four years at 
UNC. He scored 234 points and passed or 
ran for 64 touchdowns. As a ball carrier he 
accumulated 2.634 yards. 

His total offense record of 4,883 yards 
lasted for 45 years until quarterback Jason 
Stanicek broke the mark in 1994. Justice, 
graciously, was on hand to congratulate 
Stanicek. 

Justice seemed to peak when the tradi- 
tional games were being played. He led the 
Tar Heels to lour straight wins over Duke. 
He was an All-America mention as a fresh- 
man and made many of the major teams as 
a junior and as a senior. He was runnerup 
for the Heisman Trophy to Doak Walker of 
SMU in 1949. 

Charlie's finest moment came in 
the College All-Star Game of 1950 at 
Chicago's Soldier Field. He was voted the 
MVP of the game for siood reason. The 



All-Stars walloped the Philadelphia Eagles, led by 
Steve Van Buren. 17-7. Justice gained 133 yards 
individually, or 48 more than the Eagles posted as a 
team. He set up a touchdown on a 60-yard pass from 
Eddie LeBaron. 

Justice passed away in Cherryville on October 17. 
2003. He was 79. The next day, Carolina played 
Arizona State at Kenan Stadium and the number 22 
was painted at the 22-yard line in Justice's honor. 




A statue of legendary Tar Heel Charlie "Choo Choo" Justice was 
dedicated in 2004.

BRIAN BLADOS, "60 

When two Carolina tailbacks ran for over 1 ,000 yards 
in 1983. much of thai yardage came behind Blados. 
The 6-6. 305-pound left tackle dominated the line 
of scrimmage as Carolina set a school total offense 
record and finished seventh nationally in yardage. 
Blados was named on 40 ol HID ballots in voting for 
the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team. He was a 
first round choice by the Cincinnati Bengals m the 
NFL draft. 

IRV HOLDASH, "25 

While Carolina's football fortunes slipped in the 
years immediately following the Charlie Justice Era, 
I loklash still received national attention for Ins out- 
standing play. A center on offense and linebacker on 
defense. Holdash was a three-year regular who never 
missed a game during his varsity career. He perhaps 
sealed All-America honors in 1950 with a sensational 
performance in a 14-7 loss at Notre Dame. Irish quar- 
terback Bobby Williams called him "the best I've 
played against." 

BOB LACEY, "85 

Lacey led the Atlantic Coast Conference in receiving 
in 1963 with 48 catches for 533 yards. His pass- 
catching was a key factor as Carolina rolled to a 9-2 
record, defeating Air Force, 35-0, in the Gator Bowl. 
Lacey was also the team's top receiver in 1962 with 
44 catches. He was the first Tar Heel player to have at 
least 40 catches in two seasons. His career total of 102 
receptions is the lOth-best in school history. 

AMOS LAWRENCE, "20 

The only ACC player and one of only four players 
in college football history to rush for 1 .000 yards in 
four consecutive seasons, Lawrence holds the UNC 
career record and is second in ACC history with 
4,391 yards rushing. He rushed for more than 100 
yards in a game on 25 occasions and his 286 yards 
rushing vs. Virginia in 1477 was NCAA freshman 
rushing record at the time. Lawrence was named the 
co-MVP in the 1974 Gator Bowl and was the MVP 
of the 1980 Bluebonnet Bowl. 

PAUL SEVERIN, "87 



Severin was a two-time All-America selection b\ the 
Associated Press (1939 and 1940) and made most 
of the all-star teams in his senior season. His career 
was filled with big plays — a touchdown catch to tie 
Tulane in 1939. two scoring catches against Penn 
that same season and a touchdow n-sa\ mg tackle from 
behind of Duke's great Steve Each in a 6-3 win over 
the Blue Devils in 1940.

, The 1947 Sugar Bowl, which 
; matched Carolina against 
j Georgia, is one of the most 
• famous Tar Heel games of the 
Charlie "Choo Choo" Justice 
years and produced one of the 
3 most controversial plays in bowl 
'. history. 
Carolina was leading 7-0 in 
the third period when Bulldog defensive right end 
Joe Tereshinski intercepted a Tar Heel pass at the 
Georgia 24-yard line. He then flipped a lateral to 
Dick McPhee who raced 52 yards to the Carolina 14. 

The far Heels argued the lateral was a forward 
one and the play should have been called back. 
However, the officials ruled differently. Georgia 
went on to score the tying touchdown on a quarter- 
back sneak by Johnny Rauch. 

Carolina's lone touchdown came on a Walt Pupa 
two-yard run following an interception by Tar Heel 
guard Bob Mitten. 

The Tar Heels' last lead at 10-7 came on a Bob 
Cox field goal. 

The Georgia game-winner came on a 67-yard 
touchdown pass from Trippi to Dan Edwards less 
than three minutes after the UNC field goal. 

The Dawgs' Charley Trippi rushed for 77 yards, 
while Justice carried 18 times for 37 yards.

to play in the 1963 Gator Bowl, 

i they made the most of it. The 

ITar Heels walloped the Air 
% l 

\ Force, 35-0. 

Ken Willard was the hero 

of the day. He ran for 94 yards on 1 8 carries and 

scored the first touchdown which keyed the runaway 

victory. When Willard wasn't running in this rout, 

he did his share of the offensive blocking. 

Joe Robinson scored on a five-yard pass and also 
caught a two-yard conversion to give the Tar Heels a 
20-0 lead at intermission. 

Coach Jim Hickey's Tar Heels had 23 first downs

Garcia came off the Cornhuskers' 
bench in the final period to toss

to Tim Smith with 3:16 left in the game. That came 
six plays after Nebraska recovered a fumble at the

game's Most Valuable Player despite the loss, had 
led the Tar Heels to a 17-7 lead in the third quarter.

Kelvin Bryant rushed for 1 48 
yards and Ethan Horton added 
[144 to lead the Tar Heels to a 
31-27 victory over Arkansas in 
■ the Gator Bowl. 

Bryant and Horton shared 
Most Valuable Player honors, 
but it was a key defensive stop 
by seldom-used freshman Ronnie 
Snipes which saved the night lor Carolina. 

After building a 31-10 lead midway through the 
fourth quarter, Carolina watched as Arkansas rallied 
for two touchdowns and had the ball again inside 
Tar Heel territory with less than a minute to play. 
But on third down. Snipes, who hail played just two 
previous downs in the contest, saeked quarterback 
Brad Taylor for a 17-yard loss. 

The game was deadlocked at 10-10 at the half, 
but Carolina came right out to open the third quarter 
and put together a 13-play, 85-yard drive which was 
capped by Horton's one-yard scoring run. 

LINC quarterback Rod Hlkins scored on a one- 
yard sneak on the Tar Heels' next drive. He was set 
up by a 2 1 -yard run by Horton anil a I 3-yard scam- 
per by Bryant. 

Horton then churned out 42 yards on six plays 
and went in from four yards out to give the Heels a 
31-10 lead with 7:29 to play in the game. 

The Ra/orbacks scored with 5:05 to play, recov- 
ered an onside kick and scored again with 2:44 
left. UNC punter Jeff Hayes took an intentional 
safety with 1:44 to play. That gave the ball back to 
Arkansas and set up Snipes' defensive gem.

Arizona converted tour North 
Carolina fumbles into 20 points 
and then held off a furious Tar 
Heel rally in the fourth quarter to 
win the 1986 Aloha Bowl, 30-21. 
Carolina dug itself a 30-0 hole 
and did not put points on the 
board until freshman tailback 
Torin Dorn broke a 58-yard 
touchdown run with 2:19 left in the third quarter. 

The Tar Heels fumbled five times in the first 
three periods and the Wildcats turned them into two 
touchdowns and two field goals. 

Following Dorn's electrifying run, the Tar Heels 
quickly moved back within striking distance with 
two more touchdowns in the next seven minutes. 
Mark Maye hit Randy Marriott with a six-yard 
touchdown pass after a Norris Davis interception 
and then followed a Davis punt block with a two- 
yard scoring run ol his own to narrow the margin to 
30-21 with 9:10 to play. 

That, however, was as close as Carolina could 
challenge. A couple of dropped passes thwarted two 
more Carolina drives. 

Dorn was the game's leading ground-gainer, 
rushing for 101 sards on only seven carries. Maye 
completed 17 o\ 34 passes for 171 yards; he hooked 
up with Eric Starr a game-high seven times lor 33 
yards.

and forced a fourth quarter inter- 
ception which Cliff Baskerville 
returned 44 yards for a touch- 
down to lead Carolina to a 2 I - 1 7 
Peach Bowl win over Mississippi 
State.

comeback in which the Tar Heels came from 14 
points behind to score three times, although just once 
on an offensive possession. 

MSU took a two-touchdown lead in the first quar- 
ter and had two more scores in the second quarter 
called back due to holding penalties.

the lead to 14-7 just si\ plays into the third quarter.

53-yard completion on the fourth play of the half 
and Natrone Means scored from a yard out two 
snaps later.

2008 NORTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL 



BOWL GAME RECAPS 




2004 Continental Tire Bowl 

Charlotte, IM.C. 

Boston College 37, Carolina 24 

December 30, 2004 

Kicker Ryan Ohliger scored 
on a 2 1 -yard fake field goal run 
to seal Boston College's 37-24 
[victory over North Carolina in the 
Continental 'lire Bow I 

Clinging to a 27-24 lead 
lover North Carolina (6-6) in the 
fourth quarter, BC quarterback 
Paul Peterson was injured as he tried to run outside 
for a first down on third-and-1 and was brought 
down awkwardly by Tommy Davis. On the next 
play, Ohliger. a 5-foot-9 freshman, took the handoff 
from holder Matt Ryan and raced into the end zone, 
breaking a tackle along the way, for a 34-24 lead 
with 10:32 to play. Before leaving. Peterson went 
24-of-33 for 236 yards and two touchdowns. 

Virginia represented the ACC in the first two 
Tire Bowls, so the inclusion of North Carolina was a 
welcome change of scenery. Tar Heels fans snapped 
up over 65.000 tickets, washing out the scattering of 
Boston College supporters in a sea of light blue. 
They had plenty to cheer about early as North 
Carolina seized the momentum by scoring a pair of 
touchdowns after Peterson's fumble and Ohliger's 
missed field goal. 

North Carolina quarterback Darian Durant threw 
for 260 yards and three TDs in his final game as 
a Tar Heel. He finished his storied career with 51 
school records, including all major passing and total 
offense records. 

Wide receiver Derelle Mitchell caught seven 
passes for 1 16 yards.
