NORTH CAROLINA PREVIEW • TAR HEEL NOTEBOOK

year as a starter. 




Preview 

A year after emerging as one of the most improved 
teams in the country, North Carolina heads into 200° 
with renewed optimism about the future of its football 
program. The Tar Heels won eight games in 2008 and 
earned the program's first bowl berth since 2004. Caroli- 
na carried that positive momentum into the offseason by 
signing a top 10 recruiting class in early February. 

"Last year we flipped the win total from four victo- 
ries to eight and advanced to a bowl game," said head 
coach Butch Davis. "We're heading in the right direction 
and we'll look to carry that momentum into the fall. It's 
an exciting time to be a part of Carolina football." 

Davis and his staff, which includes three new as- 
sistant coaches, have some key holes to fill as they look 
toward the season opener on Sept. 5 . For starters, the Tar 
Heels must plug two holes on the offensive line at right 
tackle and left guard and must build depth across the 
line. Carolina must replace three-year starters Garrett 
Ryenolds, who was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons, and 
offensive guard Calvin Darity. Davis would like to play 
as many as 9-10 offensive linemen in a game and may 
be forced to play a few incoming freshmen. Three-year 
starting left tackle Kyle Jolly is a potential all-conference 
selection, and Lowell Dyer returns at center, but the 
other three positions are unsettled. 

Another position of great need is wide receiver where 
Carolina lost six players from a year ago, including NFL 
draft picks Hakeem Nicks. Brandon Tate and Brooks 
Foster. Nicks declared early for the NFL Draft after set- 
ting 14 Carolina receiving records in just three seasons. 
Carolina lost players that accounted for 17 of its 21 



receiving touchdowns in 200X. The Tar Heels recruited 
well at wide receiver, and several true freshmen will get 
an opportunity to play. Joshua Adams enrolled in Janu- 
ary, participated in spring ball and has done a good job 
learning the offense. 

Carolina's needs are not as great on defense where 
the Tar Heels return a league-high nine starters, includ- 
ing second-team All-ACC cornerback Kcndi ic Burney 
and standout linebackers Quan Sturdivant and Bruce 
Carter. Gone are middle linebacker Mark Paschal I 103 
tackles in 1 1 games) and All-America safety Trimane 
Goddard who led the nation with seven interceptions. 
Sturdivant will slide to middle linebacker this fall, 
opening up competition at outside linebacker. Da'Norris 
Searcy had 10 of his 25 tackles last year in the bowl 
game vs. West Virginia and he begins the fall competing 
with Jonathan Smith and Matt Mcrletti for the vacant 
safety spot. 

2009 Schedule 



Seven home games, including the Inst Thursday night 
home game in UNC history, highlight the 2009 North 
Carolina football schedule. 

Eight of the Tar Heels' 12 opponents played in a 
bowl game last season, including Florida State, which 
returns to Kenan Stadium for the first time since 2003. 
The Tar Heels and Seminoles will meet over Carolina's 
[•'all Break on Thursday, Oct. 22 in an ESPN nationally 
televised game. The following week. Carolina goes on 
the road to Virginia Tech for another ESPN Thursday 
night game in Blacksburg, Va. 

Carolina's home slate features games against The 
Citadel (Sept. 5), East Carolina (Sept. 19). Virginia (Oct. 
3). Georgia Southern (Oct. 10). Florida State (Oct. 22), 
Duke (Nov. 7) and Miami (Nov. 14). The 2009 home 
schedule marks the first time Carolina and Duke have 
not ended the year since 2005. 

The Tar Heels" road schedule features 
contests at Connecticut (Sept. 12), Georgia 
Tech (Sept. 26). Virginia Tech (Oct. 29). 
Boston College (Nov. 21 ) and NC State 
(Nov. 28). 

January Enrollees 



from a sen ago 

Reddick spent one summer session in ( hapcl 1 1 ill last 
year and then attended Hargrave Military Academy lor 
one semester Reddick missed Carolina's 2009 spring 
workouts due to mononucleosis. A native ol New Bern 
N.C., Reddick was one ol the lop players in the state as ,i 
high school senioi in 2008. 

Letterwinners 

North Carolina returns 37 letterwinners from last sea- 
son's .S-5 squad, including a league-best nine defensive 
starters. The Tar Heels welcome back 21 letterwinners 
on defense and 15 on offense. The returning starters 
on defense include DE E.J. Wilson, DT Cam Thomas. 
DT Marvin Austin, DE Robert Quinn, LB Bruce Carter. 
LB Quan Sturdivant, CB Kendric Burney, CB Jordan 
Hemby and S Deunta Williams. The six offense starters 
returning are QB T.J. Yates, TB Shaun Draughn, IB 
Bobby Rome, OT Kyle Jolly, C Lowell Dyer and OG 
Alan Pelc. 

Staff Additions 

North Carolina hired assistant coaches Troy Douglas. 
Art Kaufman and Allen Mogndge in February. Douglas 
will coach the defensive backs. Kaufman will be 
responsible for the linebackers and Mogridgc will tutor 
the tight ends. 

Douglas comes to Carolina after a successful three- 
year stint at South Florida. Kaufman is a 25-year coach- 
ing veteran who has served as a defensive coordinator 
in the Southeastern Conference. Mogridge is a former 
Tar Heel letterwinner who was on Buffalo's staff for 
seven years. Mogridge played four different positions at 
Carolina from 1996-99 and played in two Gator Bowls 
and the 1998 Las Vegas Bowl. 



Signing Day Success 

Most analysts agree that North Carolina 



Wide receiver Joshua Adams and 
linebacker Kevin Reddick enrolled at 
North Carolina in January. Both arc- 
expected to compete for playing time 
as true freshmen. 

Adams is a highly-recruited 
player who originally committed to 
the Tar Heels as a junior. He was 
ranked by nearly every recruiting 
analyst as one of the top receiv- 
ers in the country. He will have 
plenty of opportunities this spring 
as the Tar Heels look to replace 
nearly the entire receiving corps

Kenan Stadium Renovations 



Renovation of the Kenan Football Center began after 
the 2008 season. An additional floor (level five) was 
added to the existing structure and renovations were 
made throughout the building. The fifth floor contains 
office and recruiting space for the day-to-day operations 
of the football program, four premium gameday suites, 
a larger video and studio facility and a state-of-the-art 
press conference area. The recruiting area and suites 
also will be used as academic study areas during the 
week. The second floor was completely renovated for 
increased football meeting spaces, including bigger indi- 
vidual position meeting rooms and a larger team meeting 
room. The fourth floor renovations included additional 
office space for football support staff. 

New lockers were installed on the first floor and the 
restrooms were renovated throughout the facility. 

Carolina officials have adopted a master plan for 
Kenan Stadium and additional renovations are scheduled 
to begin after 2009. 

UNC Tied For Sixth-Most Improved Record in 2008 

North Carolina had a four-win improvement in 2008 
from the 2007 season. UNC finished with an 8-5 mark 
last year, compared with a 4-8 record two seasons ago. 
The four-win turnaround tied for the sixth-best turn- 
around in the nation. The Tar Heels topped three ranked 
teams - No. 24 Connecticut, No. 23 Boston College and 
No. 22 Georgia Tech - and played in the Meineke Car 
Care Bowl vs. West Virginia. 



Player Note s 



• Over a span of two games last season, LB Bruce 
Carter blocked four consecutive punts. Carter blocked 
the final punt by Miami on Oct. 17, then blocked the first 
three punt attempts by then 24th-ranked Connecticut to 
set an ACC record and unofficial NCAA record for most 
consecutive blocked punts. 

• Linebacker Quan Sturdivant led the nation last year 
with 87 solo tackles and ranked third in the ACC and 
20th in the country in tackles per game. 

• Tailback Shaun Draughn rushed for 866 yards last 
season, the most at UNC since Jonathan Linton had 
1.004 in 1997. 

• Senior Lowell Dyer is one of five ACC pivotmen 
named to the preseason watch list for the Rimington 
Trophy, presented annually to the nation's best center. 



Yate s Ai ms For Efficiency 



North Carolina offensive coordinator John Shoop 
believes the top statistic for a quarterback is pass ef- 
ficiencey. Entering the 2009 season, junior signal caller 
T.J. Yates has a career pass efficiency rating of 131 .56, 
which ranks fifth all-time at UNC. Yates missed half of 
the 2008 season with an ankle injury, but still managed 
to record a pass effi ciency mark of 153.04 last year 
and his career pass efficiency mark is third best among 
returning ACC QBs behind only NC State's Russell Wil- 
son (133.93) and Wake Forest's Riley Skinner (132.34). 

In the UNC career records, Yates ranks third in 
completion percentage (.598), sixth in passing yards 
(3,823), seventh in completions (299). eighth in attempts 
(500) and ninth in touchdowns (25). 



Position-By-Pos itio n Preview 



Offensive Line: The trio of Kyle Jolly, Alan Pelc and 
Lowell Dyer combined to start 29 games last year and 
form a solid nucleus of talent returning in 2009. Jolly 
is entering his third year as a starter at tackle and should 
contend for All-ACC honors. Pelc came on strong last 
year to earn a starting spot at guard. Dyer, a two-time 
All-ACC Academic honoree, has started at center in each 
of the last two seasons. 

The Tar Heels will have to replace three-year starters 
Garrett Reynolds and Calvin Darity. Reynolds was a 
second-team All-ACC pick and consistently graded out 
as the team's top lineman. Finding their successors 
will be offensive line coach Sam Pittman's top priority. 
Junior Mike Ingersoll and sophomore Carl Gaskins are 
the top candidates at tackle. At guard, the unexpected 
departure of Aaron Stahl leaves an opportunity for red- 
shirt freshman Jonathan Cooper, who was impressive on 
the scout team last year and has good quickness. Kevin 
Bryant battled injuries last year, but will challenge for 
playing time this spring at both guard and tackle. Cam 
Holland provides depth at center.

TAR HEEL NOTEBOOK 



■ 



Wide Receivers & Tight K.nds: North Carolina 
must completely rebuild its receiving corps alter losing 
WR Hakeem Nicks (first round), TE Richard Quinn 
(second round), WR Brandon Tate (third round), WR 
Brooks Foster (fifth round) to the NFL draft. Carolina 
loses players that accounted for 1 7 of its 2 1 receiving 
touchdowns from 2008. 

The only returning player with significant playing 
experience is Greg Little, who began his career as a 
wide receiver, moved to running back from the end of 
his freshman year and first part of his sophomore season, 
before moving back to wideout. He had I I catches in 
2008 and is expected to earn one of the starting positions 
this season. Freshman Dwight Jones and sophomore 
Rashad Mason played sparingly last year, but both have 
the talent to earn a starting position. Other candidates 
include Todd Harrelson. who redshirted last year, and 
highly-touted Joshua Adams, who joined the team in 
January. Johnny White, who is one of the fastest players 
on the team, has moved to wide receiver after playing 
most of his career at tailback. Zack Pianalto. Christian 
Wilson. Ryan Taylor and Ed Barham will compete at 
tight end/h-back. Pianalto was injured much of the 2008 
season, but has shown the ability to be a productive 
player when healthy. Wilson saw significant time as a 
true freshman and has a lot of promise. Taylor is a good 
special teams player who has played both offense and 
defense during his career. Barham is a good blocker 
who is improving as a receiver. 

Returnees: TE Ed Barham, WR Todd Harrelson, TE 
Vince Jacobs. WR Dwight Jones, WR Greg Little. WR 
Rashad Mason, TE Zack Pianalto, TE Christian Wilson, 
TE Ryan Taylor. 

Losses: WR Cooler Arnold. WR Brooks Foster, 
WR Hakeem Nicks. Anthony Parker-Boyd, TE Richard 
Quinn. WR Brandon Tate. WR Kenton Thornton 

Additions: WR Joshua Adams (January enrollee), 
WR Jheranie Boyd, ATH Erik Highsmith, WR Joshua 
McKie 



Tailbacks & Quarterbacks: The Tar Heels return 
nearly every component of its 2009 offensive backfield, 
including all of their running backs from a year ago and 
starting quarterback T.J. Yates. The only loss is Camer- 
on Sexton, who elected to graduate early and transfer to 
Catawba. Shaun Draughn became the starting tailback 
midway through the season and rushed for 866 yards, the 
most by a UNC tailback since Jonathan Linton in 1997. 
Ryan Houston provided a powerful punch off the bench, 
leading the team with eight touchdowns, including six 
from just a yard out. 

While Draughn and Houston will still receive a bulk 





Three-year starter E.J. Wilson 
anchors a defensive line that 
returns all four starters. 



of the work at tailback, redshirt 
freshman Jamal Womble will 
have an opportunity to showcase 
his talents. He was a highly- 
recruited tailback the Tar Heels 
signed out of Arizona last year 
who has good speed, a low center 
of gravity and a quick, powerful 
burst. He was impressive in the 
spring and had a team-best 50 
yards rushing in the spring game. 
It will be interesting to see what 
added dimension he brings to the 
ground game. 

The Tar Heels are well 
stocked at fullback with Bobby 
Rome and Anthony Elzy. Rome 
is a powerful blocker with good 
hands. Both players are solid 
receivers out of the backfield. 

Yates returns as the starter at 
quarterback for the third year. 
He will face competition from 
sophomore Mike Paulus. who 
started one game last season 
when Yates went down with an 
injury, and redshirt freshman

Defensive Line: This is arguably Carolina's deepset 
position with all four starters returning and several 
promising young players among the rotation. At times. 
Carolina played as many as nine defensive linemen per 
game in 2008. Defensive end Robert Quinn became a 
starter in the second game of the season and finished 
third in the ACC's defensive rookie of the year voting. 
Senior defensive tackle Cam Thomas is coming off his 
best season at UNC and returns for his third year as a 
starter. Defensive tackle Marvin Austin and end E.J. 

Wilson played well in 2008. and 
will look to increase their produc- 
tivity this year. Reserves Quinton 
Copies and Michael McAdoo had 
solid rookie seasons and will push 
Wilson and Quinn for playing 
time. Alcric Mullins and Tydreke 
Powell are interchangeable with 
Austin and Thomas as starters at 
tackle.

ers in italic) 

Losses: None 

Additions: DT Jared McAdoo,

Linebackers: Carolina returns 
two all-star candidates in Quan 
Sturdivant and Bruce Carter at 



linebacker. Sturdivant led the nation with 87 solo tackles 
and ranked third in the ACC in total tackles per game. 
Carter was a one-man blocking machine, leading the 
country with live blocks in 200X Sturdivant will slide 
to middle linebacker this fall, creating an opening al 

the weakside linebacker position lor speed) sophomore 
Zach Brown. 

Although short on experience, (he Tar Heels have as 
much depth at linebacker as they have in recent memory. 
Carter and Sturdivant started every game last year, but 
the live other players have seen little playing time except 
on special teams. Freshman Kevin Reddick enrolled in 
January after a semester at Hargrave Military Academy, 
but missed spring practice with mononucleosis. Brown 
won the competition for the last starling spot in the 
spring, but he will have to lend off competition from 
sophomore Linvvan Euwell, converted safety Herman 
Davidson and redshirt freshman Dion Guy.

Losses: MLB Mark Paschal. MLB Chase Rice 
Additions: LB Hawatha Bell. LB Shane Mularkey, 
OLB Kevin Reddick (January enrollee) 



Defensive Backs: Carolina returns three of four 
starters in the defensive backfield. including second- 
team All-ACC pick Kendnc Burney, 2007 ACC 
Defensive Freshman of the Year Deunta Williams and 
senior cornerback Jordan Hemby. The graduation of 
All-America safety and three-year starter Trimane God- 
dard is a significant loss. Da'Norris Searcy, who had his 
career performance in the bowl game will be given every 
chance to win the job. but will face competition from 
juniors Matt Merletti and Jonathan Smith. Williams 
missed the spring due to a wrist surgery, but should be 
completely healthy this fall. Senior Melvin Williams 
had a great spring and will be ready if called upon. 
Hemby and Charles Brown were even coming out of the 
spring, and both are expected to be solid contributors 
in 2009. LeCount Fantroy and Brian Gupton will also 
compete for playing time at corner. 

Returnees: CB Charles Brown. CB Kendrie Burney, 
CB LeCount Fantroy. CB Brian Gupton, CB Jordan 
Hemby. S Matt Merletti, S Da'Norris Searcy. S Jonathan

Losses: S Trimane Goddard, CB Richie Rich 
Additions: DB Curtis Campbell. DB Josh Hunter. 
DB My wan Jackson. DB Gene Robinson. DB Terry

Specialists: The unexpected departure of Jay Wooten 
leaves the Tar Heels with just one place-kicker - sopho- 
more Casey Barth - with any experience entering the 
fall. Barth was the Tar Heels' primary field goal kicker 
in 2008 and connected on 10 of 14 attempts. 

Carolina has no punter on the roster with any game 
experience. Walk-on Grant Schallock handled the punt- 
ing duties in the spring and was impressive. He will be 
pushed by signee C.J. Feagles. 

Carolina's special teams suffered a major loss last 
year when punt and kickoff return man Brandon Tate 
was lost for the season midway through the \ ear. Johnny 
White did a good job late in the season and has the 
inside track on returning kickoffs. The Tar Heels are still 
searching for the right answer on punt returns and could 
look to fill the void with an incoming freshman.

';if»'fw™*f^^f^fy§ w f^ 





North Carolina is currently underway with a renovation 
" lenan Stadium that will enhance the overall fan 
erience and provide much-needed recruiting and 
ice space for the football program. The first phase 
jn the Kenan Stadium Master Plan was the addition of 
a fifth floor to the Kenan Football Center and a renova- 
tion of other areas within the building. The project, 
which began immediately after the 2008 season, was 
scheduled to be completed by the first game o 



mil an ■■ 



The fifth floor contains additional office and r 







space for the day-to-day operations of the foo 
program, four gameday suites, a larger video ai 
studio facility and a state-of-the-art press conference 
area. The recruiting area and suites will also be used 
as academic study areas during the week. Tl 
second floor was completely renovated for inc. 
football meeting spaces, including bigger individual 
position meeting rooms and a larger team meeting 
room. The fourth floor renovations included additional 
office space for football support staff.

Student-athletes at Carolina are fortunate 
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 biome- 
chanical analysis. The information gained from these tests is 
used to better determine a student-athlete's readiness to return

If success is best measured in terms of wins and losses, then the Atlantic Coast 
Conference over the years has proven itself to be among the elite in Division l-A 
football. In 2008, the ACC won more non-conference games than ever before, 
posting a 41-17 record including 17-14 (.548 winning percentage) against teams 
from the SEC, Big Ten, PAC-10, Big 12 and Big East Conferences. 

This past season, the ACC set an NCAA record sending 10 of its teams to post- 
season bowl games. Since 2005, no conference has had as many bowl game partici- 
pants as the ACC, which has sent 34 teams to bowls in the four-year span. 

In 2008, the ACC broke its own NCAA record of percentage of teams going to 
bowl games set in 2002, as 83.3 percent of its teams were in post-season play.

§ NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • HEAD COACH BUTCH DAVIS 




North Carolina head coach Butch 
Davis has brought energy and enthusi- 
asm back to the Tar Heel football pro- 
gram 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 
Cleveland Browns, Davis is Carolina's 
33rd head coach and the ninth since 
the ACC was formed in 1953. 

Introduced as North Carolina's 
head coach on Nov. 13, 2006, Davis 
quickly 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 fast, hard- 
nosed, disciplined football. 

Over the past two seasons, Caro- 
lina has sold out 12 of 13 contests, 
increased average attendance by nearly 
18 percent and sold a school-record 
36.250 season tickets in 2008. 

Carolina improved from 4-8 in 

2007 to 8-5 in 2008, the sixth-best 
turnaround in the country. The 
Tar Heels won games over bowl 
teams Rutgers, Miami, Con- 
necticut, Notre Dame, Boston 
College and Georgia Tech 
and were in the hunt for the 

2008 ACC championship 
until the final week of 
the season. Carolina's 
eight wins were its 
most since 2001. The 
Tar Heels earned an in- 
vitation to the Meineke Car 
Care Bowl in Charlotte, its 
first postseason game since 
2004. UNC sold more than 
22,000 tickets (10,000 more 
than its allotment) in just one 
week of sales and had an esti- 
mated 40,000 fans in attendance. 

"We are building a program to 
compete at the highest level for a 
national championship," says Da- 
vis, who won a national title as an 
assistant coach with Miami in 1987. 
"It's a process that takes time and we 
are heading in the right direction. The 
steps we take are not always evident 
on the field, but are also accomplished 



in the classroom, the weight room and 
other areas off the field. We are climb- 
ing the mountain." 

Davis's first season in Chapel Hill 
was highlighted by an impressive 33- 
27 win over Miami, in which he earned 
his first ACC victory against his former 
school. Carolina was competitive 
in nearly every game, with 
six losses decided by a 
combined total of just 
24 points. Statistically, 
Carolina finished 35th 
in the country in total 
defense, improving 
nearly 60 positions 
from the previous year. 

Several indi- 
viduals have benefitted 
from Davis's return to 
the college game, none 
more than defensive 




tackle Kentwan Balmer and wide 
receiver Hakeem Nicks, both of whom 
became first-round draft picks under 
Davis' tutelage. 

Balmer had career highs in 
tackles and sacks in 2007, earned 
all-conference honors for the first time 
and was selected in the first round by 
the San Francisco 49ers. Last year, 
Nicks finished an outstanding three- 
year career with 14 school records and 
was selected in the first round by the 
New York Giants. Nicks became the 
30th first-round draft choice Davis has 
produced as a college coach. Many 
observers agree 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. "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 
guidance." 

"Coach Davis 
prepares players 




incredibly well for the NFL," says 
Nicks. "Without his help and the as- 
sistant coaches, I would not be where 
I am today." 

Carolina had an ACC-best five 
players picked in the 2009 NFL Draft, 
including Nicks, second-round pick 
Richard Quinn, third-rounder Brandon 
Tate and fifth-round picks Garrett 
Reynolds and Brooks Foster. Add 
defensive end Hilee Taylor (Carolina 
Panthers) and place-kicker Connor 
Barth (Kansas City Chiefs) from 
the previous season and UNC has 
produced seven NFL players in just 
two years. 

But statistics and draft choices 
don't reveal the full story. Davis has 
hired an outstanding staff of assistant 
coaches, brought in three consecu- 
tive recruiting classes stocked with 
some of the nation's top high school 
players, and produced an entertaining 
product on the field. In addition, the 
University is currently underway with 
a renovation of Kenan Stadium that 
will enhance the overall fan experience 
and provide much-needed recruit- 
ing and office space for the football 
program. A fifth floor was added to 
the Kenan Football Center following 
the 2008 season. The floor contains 
additional space for the day-to-day 
operations of the football program, 
four premium gameday suites, a larger 
video and studio facility and a state- 
of-the-art press conference area. The 
recruiting area and suites will also be 
used as academic study areas during 
the week. The second floor was 
completely renovated for increased 
football meeting spaces, includ- 
ing bigger individual position 
meeting rooms and a larger team 
meeting room. The fourth floor 
renovations include additional 
office space for football sup- 
port staff. 

No stranger to success, 
Davis has coached in 12 
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 assis- 
tant coach with the Dallas 
Cowboys. An excellent 
motivator and techni- 
cian, 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

NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • HEAD COACH BUTCH DAVIS 



No stranger to success, Davis has coached 
in 12 postseason bowl games as an assis- 
tant 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. As a head coach, Da- 
vis has recruited or coached an amazing 
30 first-round NFL Draft picks. 



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 I 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 academies, 1 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 51-20 record, 
three Big East Conference champion- 
ships and lour 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 nation 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 Cham- 
pionship by winning seven straight 
games to close the '95 season. The 
team would have received an invita- 
tion to a BCS bowl game, however, 
Miami declined the invitation due to 
NCAA sanctions previously approved 
by university officials for violations 
prior to Davis's arrival. 

Davis again led Miami to a share 
of the Big East title in 1996 and cata- 
pulted the Hurricanes to a top 20 rank- 
ing 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. 

Davis's 1999 squad began the 
year with a 23-12 victory over Ohio 
State in the Kickoff Classic and 
capped the season with a 28-13 victory 
over Georgia Tech in the Toyota Gator 
Bowl, the Hurricanes' first New Year's 
Day bowl game under Davis. 

In his final year at Miami (2000). 
the Hurricanes posted an 11-1 mark. 



including a 37-20 victory 
over Florida in the Nokia 
Sugar Bowl. That team 
was second in the nation 
in scoring, filth in total 
offense, fifth in scoring 
defense and eighth in pass 
defense. 

Davis also empha- 
sizes the importance of 
academics, and his Hur- 
ricanes earned recognition 
from the American Foot- 
ball Coaches Association 
for outstanding graduation 
rates in each of his six 
seasons. 

Davis left Coral 
Gables following the 
2000 season to join the Cleveland 
Browns. In his first season in Cleve- 
land in 2001 , Davis led his young team 
to an impressive 7-9 record, exceeding 
by two the expansion club's combined 
victories from 1999 and 2000 (5-27). 
Cleveland led the NFL in takeaways 
with 42. including a league-high and 
team-record 33 interceptions. The 
Browns defense also scored 32 points 
(four interception returns, one fumble 
return, one safety). His second season 
as head coach resulted in the Browns 
earning their first playoff appearance 
and best regular season mark since 
1994, despite 34 of the 53 players on 
the team's final active roster having 
four years of NFL experience or less. 
Cleveland finished the season with 
a 7-3 mark over its final 10 games, 
including victories in four of its final 
six outings, the best record over the 
final six games of the season for the 
franchise since 1988. 

Cleveland was Davis' second stint 
in the NFL. He was a defensive as- 
sistant with the Dallas Cowboys from 
1989-94 and was defensive coordina- 
tor in 1993 anil 1994. The Cowboys 
won consecutive Super Bowls in 1992 
and 1993 and played in one other NFC 
championship game. Davis helped 
Dallas post one of the most spec- 
tacular turnarounds in sports history 
as the Cowboys went from a lowly 
1-15 squad in 1989 to one of the most 
dominant NFL programs in the 1990s. 
He was the defensive line coach in 
the Cowboys' 52-17 win over Buffalo 
in Super Bowl XXVII and served as

defensive coordinator in the Cowboys' 
30- 1 3 win over Buffalo in Super Bowl 
XXVIII. As defensive line coach in 
1992, Davis helped the Cowboys lead 
the NFL in rushing defense. As coor- 
dinator a year later, the Cowboys set a 
team record by allowing just 21 touch- 
downs in 16 regular-season games and 
allowed one offensive touchdown or 
less in 12 of 16 games. 

Davis was also de- , — 

fensive coordinator dur- 
ing Barry Switzer's first 
season as head coach in 
1994 and helped Dallas 
reach the NFC Champion- 
ship Game, where eventual 
Super Bowl champion San 
Francisco denied its bid 
for a three-peat. Davis's 
defense was No. 1 in the 
league in total defense 
(269.6 yards per game) 
and pass defense (172.0 
yards per game), and third 
in scoring defense (15.5 
points per game). He 
coached three Pro Bowl 
starters - end Charles 
Haley, tackle Leon Lett 
and safety Darren Wood- 
son. The three defensive 
starters were the most for 
the Cowboys since 1983. 

Davis was defensive 
line coach at Miami from 
1984-88 under head coach 
Jimmy Johnson, whom 
he also coached under for 
five years in Dallas and 



five years at Oklahoma State. The Hur- 
ricanes went 52-9 in those five years 
and won the national championship 
after beating Oklahoma in the Orange 
Bowl to cap a perfect 12-0 record in 
1987. He coached 15 linemen who 
went on to play in the NFL. including 
All-Americas Bill Hawkins. Cortez 
Kennedy. Russell Maryland. Daniel 
Stubbs and the late Jerome Brown.

NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH JOHN BLAKE 




John Blake enters his third season 
on the North Carolina staff as the Tar 
Heels' associate 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 2008, Blake developed a 
unit that regularly played seven to 
eight players per game. Among the 
highlights of that group was defen- 
sive tackle Marvin Austin, who tied 
with E.J. Wilson for the most tackles 
among defensive linemen with 38. 
True freshman Robert Quinn quickly 
become a force at defensive end and 
was third in the league's defensive 
rookie of the year voting. Quinn was 
diagnosed with a brain tumor as a high 
school senior, but became a starter at 
Carolina in the Tar Heels' second game 
at Rutgers and won the ACC's Piccolo 
Award as the league's most courageous 
player. Tackle Cam Thomas also had 
his best season in 2008 under Blake's 
guidance. 

In 2007. North Carolina defensive 
lineman Kentwan Balmer and Hilee 
Taylor both became NFL Draft picks 
in one season with Blake. Balmer was 
selected by the San Francisco 49ers 
with the 29th pick in the first round 
and Taylor was taken in the seventh 
round by Carolina. 

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. 

In addition to his abilities as a de- 
fensive line coach, Blake is considered 
by many observers as the nation's top 
recruiter. In each of the past three 
years, at least one recruiting publica- 
tion has named Blake the nation's best 
recruiter. Most recently, three Sporting 
News recruiting analysts named him 



the best in 2009. He also earned the 
same distinction from CSTV's Tom 
Lemming in 2008 and the Wall Street 
Journal and American Football Quar- 
terly in 2007. 

In February, Carolina signed a 
consensus top 10 recruiting class, 
including a ranking of No. 5 by Scout, 
com. It was the third consecutive 
outstanding recruiting class under 
Blake. In his first year at UNC, Blake 
was responsible for the recruitment of 
Austin, the nation's No. 1 high school 
defensive player. 

Blake came to Carolina after serv- 
ing three seasons at the University of 
Nebraska, where he coached several 
outstanding defensive linemen, includ- 
ing 2007 NFL first-round draft pick 
Adam Carriker ( 1 3th overall). The 
Huskers defensive line was ranked the 
top defensive line unit in the country 
by CollegeFootballNews.com in 2006. 

Davis and Blake previously worked 
together as members of Jimmy John- 
son's staff with the Dallas Cowboys. 
Blake joined the Dallas staff as 
defensive line coach after Davis was 
promoted to defensive coordinator in 
1993. That year, Dallas ranked eighth 
in the league in total defense and 
beat Buffalo, 30-13, in Super Bowl 
XXVIII. After Davis left to become the 
head coach at Miami in 1995, Blake 
remained in Dallas and won another 
Super Bowl title under head coach 
Barry Switzer. 

A native of Rockford, 111., 
Blake played for Switzer at 
Oklahoma from 1979-82, 
where he earned All- Big 
Eight honors at nose 

guard. He later returned 



to his alma 
mater to serve 
as head coach of 
the Sooners from 
1996-98. 

At Oklahoma, 
Blake began as a 
student assistant 
working with the 
defensive line in 1985 




The Blake Family: Jourdan, Freda & John 



and earned a national championship 
ring that season. The Sooners lost just 
two games during his first tenure on 
the staff. 

Blake's first full-time assistant posi- 
tion was at Tulsa from 1987-88, where 
he coached the tight ends and wide re- 
ceivers. He returned to his alma mater 
in 1989 as the Sooners' defensive line 
coach, and then served as Gary Gibbs' 
linebackers coach from 1990 to 1992. 
After Johnson hired Blake 
in Dallas, five players made 
the Pro Bowl during his 
three seasons. Blake's 
defensive line was 
considered one of the best 
in the NFL during his

^m NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • ASSISTANT COACH KEN BROWNING 




The longest tenured assistant coach 
at North Carolina, Ken Browning en- 
ters his 16th season with the Tar Heels 
and third as the running backs coach. 
Browning has coached on the offen- 
sive and defensive side of the ball at 
UNC, including three seasons as tight 
ends coach (2001-04) and 11 years as 
defensive tackles coach ( 1994-2000, 
2005-06). Butch Davis is the fourth 
head coach Browning has worked 
under at North Carolina. Browning 
also oversees Carolina's camps 
and clinics. 

In 2008, Browning helped 
develop the sophomore tandem 
of Shaun Draught) and Ryan 
Houston into one of the top tail- 
back combinations in the league. 
Draughn steadily climbed the 
ACC rushing ranks to finished 
sixth in the league, while 
Houston led the team 
with eight rushing 
touchdowns. 
Draughn 's 866 
yards were 
the most by a 
UNC tailback 
since Jonathan 
Linton in 1997. 
Overall, the Tar 
Heels had their 
best rushing at- 
tack in four years, 
averaging 122.6 
yards and scoring 
18 touchdowns. 

In 2007, 
Browning had the 
unique challenge of 
coaching a position 
group comprised 
of all freshmen and 
sophomores. In 
fact, Carolina began 
the year 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 was the starter in 2008 for the first 
half of the season. 

In 16 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 Kent- 
wan Balmer.

in its positional "Dream Team" in its 
1998 preseason college football issue. 
Nearly every defensive tackle Brown- 
ing coached at UNC has been drafted 
by or signed by an NFL franchise. In 
2002, Sims, who played under Brown- 
ing 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 
at UNC. He coached 
Carolina's 
tight ends for 
four seasons 
(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, al- 
lowing 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 Heel staff in 1994 and has 
coached in some of the most memo- 
rable Carolina football games. He 
has been a part of eight bowl games 



and was on the staff in 1996-97 when 
UNC had a combined record of 21-3 
and finished ranked in the top 10 both 
seasons. 

Browning was the head coach and 
athletic director at Northern Durham 
High School for 18 years. He posted 
a 178-35 record and won the 1993 4-A 
state title and Shrine Bowl. Over his 
last three years. Northern built a 43-2 
record and he was named the North 
Carolina Coach of the Year by the 
Associated Press in 1992 and 1993. 
He became only the third coach to win 
both the state title and Shrine Bowl in 
the same year. 

Browning and his wife, Susan, have 
three sons - Chuck, John and Joe.

While his primary focus is the football 
team's strength and conditioning, Con- 
nors oversees the department's entire 
strength and conditioning program 
and also works specifically with the 
women's basketball team. 

Connors has been honored as a 
Master Strength & Conditioning Coach

and Garrett Reynolds. In four years 
under Connors' direction. Balmer 
increased his overall strength and 
agility and became a first-round NFL 
draft choice. 

Connors' conditioning program 
was one of the reasons Carolina 
outscored its opponents by 63 points 
in the second half in 2008. In 2004, 
players pointed to Connors' work as a 
reason the Tar Heels won three of the 
last four regular-season contests and 
earned a berth in the Continental Tire 
Bowl.

with the women's basketball team, 
the Tar Heels have won four ACC 
championships, made two Final 
Four appearances and one Elite 
Eight appearance. 

Connors came to Carolina 
after spending 10 seasons as East 
Carolina's Director of Strength 
& Conditioning. Under Con- 
nors, the Pirates were one of the 
best fourth-quarter teams in the 
country. In 1996, the ECU defense 
did not allow a point in the fourth 
quarter until the seventh game of 
the season and in 1999, the Pirates 
outscored their opponents, 102-56, in 
the final period. In 2000, ECU had a

m NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • ASSISTANT COACH SAM PITTMAN 




Sam Pittman enters his third season 
as North Carolina's offensive line 
eoach. 

North Carolina has shown steady 
progress along the offensive line under 
Pittman. In his first season in 2007, 
the Tar Heels had three-first year 
starters and just one senior among its 
top 10 players. That group continued 
to improve throughout the season and 
laid the foundation for a solid group 
in 2008. 

Pittman helped develop offensive 
taekle Garrett Reynolds into a second- 
team all-conference selection a year 
ago. Reynolds consistently graded 
out as the team's top performer over 
the last two seasons, was named to 
the 2008 Lombardi Award watch list 
and was taken in the fifth round of the 
2009 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Fal- 
cons. Reynolds was a key component 
in a line that helped Carolina produce 
its best running attack in four years, 
averaging 122.6 yards and rushing for 
18 touchdowns.

43 NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR JOHN SHOOP 




John Shoop enters his third season 
as North Carolina's offensive coordi- 
nator and quarterbacks coach. 

In 2008. the Tar Heels lost starting 
quarterback TJ. Yates for six games 
early in the season after breaking his 
ankle against Virginia Tech. Off to a 
hot start. Yates did not return to the 
starting role until the last three games 
of the season. Reserve QB Cameron 
Sexton helped lead the team to a 5-2 
record and had his best run of success 
at UNC under Shoop. Meanwhile, 
wide receiver Hakeem Nicks had his 
best two years in Shoop's offense, 
setting school records for career recep- 
tions, receiving yards and touchdowns. 
The Tar Heels also produced their best 
running attack in four years, averag- 
ing 122.6 yards per game as Shaun 
Draughn (866 yards) and Ryan Hous- 
ton (8 touchdowns) led the way. 

In his first year in Chapel Hill in 
2007, Shoop developed an exciting 
offense despite having just one senior 
starter. Yates, an unknown commodity 
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 Sporting News. Yates 
set the single-season school record for 
passing yards and Nicks set a school 
mark with 74 receptions. 

Wide receiver Brandon Tate 
became one of the best big-play threats 
in the conference in Shoop's offense, 
averaging more than 20 yards per 
catch. Versatile athlete Greg Little has 
been a productive player at both wide 
receiver and tailback as Shoop always 
finds ways to get the ball to the team's 
top playmakers. 

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 live 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 position after spending 
the 1999-2000 seasons 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 
Miller had his most productive season 
as a pro. 

Under Shoop's direction in 2002. 
the Bears offense produced Pro Bowl 
wide receiver Marty Booker, who be- 
came the first Chicago receiver to earn 
all-star game honors since 1971 . 

Prior to joining the Bears, Shoop 
spent four seasons with the Carolina 
Panthers, where he began his NFL 
coaching career at the age of 25. 
Shoop was an offensive 
quality control assistant 
for the Panthers in 
1995-96 where he 
was a member of 
a staff that led the 
team to the NFC 
Championship 
Game in 1996. He 
was then promoted 
to quarter- 
backs

i NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • ASSISTANT COACH CHARLIE WILLIAMS 




Charlie Williams enters his third 
season as North Carolina's wide 
receivers coach. 

One example of Williams' impact 
on the program was the development 
of tirst-team AU-ACC wide receiver 
Hakeem Nicks, who finished his 
three-year Carolina career in 2008 with 
14 school records. Nicks set school 
records for career and single-season 
receiving yardage and after a remark- 
able 217-yard performance in the 
Meineke Car Care Bowl, declared for 
the NFL Draft. He was selected in the 
first round (29th overall) by the New 
York Giants. 

Nicks' teammate Brandon Tale 
became a big play receiver under 
Williams' tutelage. Before Williams 
arrived, Tate had just five catches 
for 72 yards. In the two years under 
Williams, Tate caught 41 balls for 855 
yards (20.9 average) and eight touch- 
downs in just 18 games. 

All three of Carolina's starting 
wide receivers last year were selected 
in the 2009 NFL Draft. In addition 
to Nicks, Tate was taken in the third 
round by the New England Patriots 
and Brooks Foster went to St. 
Louis in the fifth round. 

Williams, who coached 
wide receivers with head 
coach Butch Davis at the 
University of Miami, 
came to Carolina after 
serving as the Univer- 
sity of Arizona's wide 
receivers coach from 
2004-06. 

A 24-year coaching 
veteran, Williams spent 
six seasons as receivers 
coach with Tony Dungy 
and the NFL's Tampa Bay 
Buccaneers from 1996-200 
tutoring standout performers 
such as Keyshawn Johnson, 
Reidel Anthony and Jacquez 
Green. Johnson was chosen to play 
in three Pro Bowls while Williams 
was his position coach. The 2000 
and 200 1 Tampa Bay offenses 
set several franchise offensive 
records, and the team advanced 
to the playoffs four times during 
his tenure. 

Prior to his NFL stint, Wil- 
liams was wide receivers coach 
for three seasons at Miami, two 
under Dennis Erickson and one 
under Davis. 



At Arizona, Williams developed 
Syndric Steptoe into a big-play threat. 
Steptoe was the Wildcats' leading 
receiver in 2006 with 55 receptions for 
568 yards. Mike Thomas, Arizona's 
second-leading receiver in 2006 with 
50 catches, set the freshman school 
record with 52 receptions in 2005. 

Williams also coached one season 
for Lou Holtz at South Carolina in 
2003, where he helped develop Troy 
Williamson into a 2005 first-round 
NFL draft pick of the Minnesota 
Vikings. 

In 1993 and 
1994, Williams 
coached Chris 
T. Jones, who 
led the Hur- 
ricanes in 
receiving 
both years 




The Williams Family: Charlie, Sydney, Jada, Charlie & Lisa 



and had a total of 90 catches for 1 ,462 
yards. The 1993 Hurricanes (9-3) 
played Arizona in the Fiesta Bowl and 
Jones led Miami with six catches for 
98 yards. 

Williams was part of the 1994 
Miami staff that led the Canes 
to a 10-2 finish and played 
Nebraska in the Orange 
Bowl.

NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR EVERETT WITHERS 




Charlotte, N.C., native Everett 
Withers enters his second season as 
North Carolina's defensive coordinator 
and secondary coach. 

In 2008, the opportunistic Tar Heel 
defense ranked eighth in the country 
with 20 interceptions, just one shy of 
the school record. Carolina returned 
a school-record four interceptions for 
touchdowns and posted a positive turn- 
over margin (0.46) for the first time in 
nine years. Under Withers' guidance, 
safety Trimane Goddard led the nation 
in interceptions with seven en route to 
first-team All-ACC and second-team 
Walter Camp and Associated Press 
All-America honors. He became the 
first Tar Heel defensive back to earn 
All-America honors since Dre' Bly in 
1998. 

Withers came to North Caro- 
lina 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 overall 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 Williams. The 
new arrangement helped the 
defense earn a top 10 ranking 
and Schulters' six intercep- 
tions 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, With- 
ers 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 num- 
ber of statistical categories. 

Withers joined the Longhorns after 
three seasons ( 1995-97) as defensive 
coordinator at Louisville. His 1996 
defensive unit ranked fourth nation- 
ally 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-America honors 
for the Cardinals. 

Withers' first National Football 
League experience came with the New 
Orleans Saints where he worked as 
defensive quality control

4» NORTH CAROLINA STAFF PROFILES • DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS DICK BADDOUR 



»r 




Goldsboro native and Tar Heel alumnus Dick Baddour is in his 13th year 
as Director of Athletics and his 43rd at the University of North Carolina. He 
directs one of the most successful and respected programs in the country , 
known for its commitment to academic integrity and competitive excellence 
in men's and women's sports. 

Baddour has the third-longest current tenure among Atlantic Coast Con- 
ference athletic directors and is one of three to serve as Carolina's director 
for 10 or more years since the Tar Heels joined the league in 1954. 

During Baddour's tenure, the Tar Heels have won 1 1 national champion- 
ships, including six in women's soccer, two each in men's basketball and 
field hockey and one in men's soccer, won two football bowl games and 
had numerous top 10 national finishes in Olympic Sports. Nineteen different 
UNC men's and women's teams have combined for 61 ACC championships, 
more than any other school in that time. UNC has led the league in the num- 
ber of team championships in seven of the last 12 seasons. 

The 2008-09 season was one of the finest in Carolina history. Women's 
soccer and men's basketball won NCAA championships, men's soccer and 
women's lacrosse reached the NCAA finals, baseball advanced to the Col- 
lege World Series for the fourth year in a row and football played in the 
Meineke Car Care Bowl. UNC became the first school in ACC history to 
play in the men's basketball Final Four, the College World Series and a foot- 
ball bowl game in the same year. 

Carolina finished second nationally in the 2008-09 Learfield Sports Direc- 
tors Cup, an award that measures NCAA postseason performance. It was 
the 10th time in 12 years the Tar Heels finished first among ACC schools. 
Overall, Carolina has averaged a seventh-place finish in the Directors Cup 
during Baddour's tenure. At least 23 of 28 
Tar Heel teams have qualified for NCAA 
postseason competition in each of the last 
four seasons. 

The second-place finish in the Directors 
Cup marked the seventh top 10 finish by the 
Tar Heels in the last eight years, including 
top four showings in 2006. 2007 and 2009. 
By comparison, the other 1 1 ACC schools 
have combined for four top 10 finishes 
- and no finishes in the top four - in the 
16-year-history of the Directors Cup. 

The NCAA also honored six UNC 
athletic teams last year - baseball, men's 
basketball, women's fencing, women's golf, 
men's lacrosse and volleyball - with public 
recognition awards for their latest multi- 
year Academic Progress Rate scores. 

Baddour emphasizes academic achieve- 
ment and the overall student experience. 
Last year, 270 student-athletes made the 
ACC Academic Honor Roll, 329 earned 
Dean's List honors over the two semesters, 
and all 28 sports rated well in the APR. 
Eleven different programs finished the 
spring with a cumulative grade point aver- 
age of better than 3.0. 

Five years ago, Baddour created the the 
Carolina Leadership Academy, a training 
program for student-athletes, coaches and 
administrators. The program develops lead- 
ership skills through interactive workshops.

360-degree feedback, one-on- 
one coaching, peer mentoring 
and educational resources. 
Carolina's coaches consider 
the program an overwhelming 
success and it is a model for 
schools across the nation. 
Baddour has hired head 
coaches in nine sports, in- 
cluding Roy Williams, Butch 
Davis and Mike Fox, overseen 
renovations or created plans to 
update virtually every facility 
in the athletic complex, ex- 
panded the direction and staff- 
ing for student-athlete services 
and worked tirelessly to set the 
program on sound financial 
footing. 

Baddour has made it a top 
priority to ensure the athletic 

department stays financially stable. The department and Rams Club helped 
to raise $280 million over the last nine seasons in support of the Carolina 
First campaign, increasing the scholarship endowment to where it is the 
largest for a public school in the country. He worked out funding for facility 
enhancement projects, scholarships and operating budgets. He negotiated 
partnerships with Nike to outfit the athletic program, with Learfield Commu- 
nications to direct UNC's multi-media properties, with Wachovia for on-site 
sponsorship in the Smith Center and Aramark for concessions. The Nike deal 
was widely praised as one of the most socially conscious contracts of its kind 
with respect to global labor issues. 

Boshamer Stadium, home of the baseball program, re-opened in 2009 after 
a $25 million renovation and drew rave reviews in its first season. Currently, 
the department is working on upgrades or new facilities at Kenan Stadium, 
the Smith Center. Carmichael Auditorium, sports medicine and wrestling. 
The athletic department and Rams Club moved into the Ernie Williamson 
Athletics Center in 2007 and the Carolina Basketball Museum opened its 
doors in early 2008. Nearly 40,000 visitors have toured the museum, called 

one of the finest of its kind in the country. 

Baddour began his UNC career in 
1967 as assistant dean of men. In 1971 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 admis- 
sions and scholarship programs, head of 
personnel and supervisor of career planning 
and placement. 

Baddour spent 1 1 years as John Swof- 
ford's top assistant before being named the 
Director of Athletics on June 25, 1997. In 
2001 . he received a Distinguished Service 
Medal from the UNC General Alumni As- 
sociation. 

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, Lauren and Julia, and son, 
Johnathan; Jennifer, a family therapist in 
private practice in Cary, and her husband, 
Kevin Snead, have a son, William.

Holden Thorp 



CHANCELLOR 







"We must make Carolina the best place to teach, learn, and discover." 



A T CAROLINA, Holden Thorp has been an undergradu- 
/ » ate student, a chemistry professor, a planetarium direc- 
JL JL. tor, an inventor and entrepreneur, as well as a dean. 
He graduated with honors, won teaching awards, led a power- 
house academic department, developed technology for electronic 



DNA chips, founded spin-off companies, and succeeded as 
an administrator. 

Now, as the 10th chancellor, Thorp is drawing from all of those 
experiences in leading Carolina among the ranks of the great re- 
search universities in the United States and around the world. 



V 



A North Carolina native, Thorp grew up in Fayetteville in 
a family steeped in Carolina traditions dating to the 1800s. 
His father, Herb, used to sing the alma mater, "Hark the 
Sound," at bed time. When it was time to graduate from 
Terry Sanford High School, there was only one school on his 
college application list - UNC. He earned a bachelor of sci- 
ence degree with honors in 1986. 

Attending a world-class research university - where re- 
search and teaching are done by the same people - gave Thorp 
opportunities to work in chemistry labs alongside some of 
Carolina's very best faculty. Those experiences inspired him 
to become a college professor. He pursued that dream at the 
California Institute of Technology, where he earned a doc- 
torate in chemistry in 1989, and at Yale University for post- 
graduate work. After a year teaching at N.C. State, he came 
back to UNC's chemistry department in 1993. 

Because he has lived it from both sides of the classroom, 
Thorp is passionate about the undergraduate experience. 
"Carolina is perfectly suited to leverage our students' inter- 
ests in the great problems facing our world to enhance their 
academic success and position 
them to lead us," Thorp says. 
"Our greatest contributions are 
the UNC alumni who go on to 
be leaders in communities across 
North Carolina." 

He says the University's future 
depends on aspiring to global ac- 
ademic excellence and serving 
the needs of North Carolina's 



students and people. "We're the university of both - and: 
Both academic prominence and a commitment to our state." 

Before becoming chancellor on July 1, 2008, Thorp served 
a year as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He chaired 
the chemistry department, led a $17 million fundraising ef- 
fort for the Carolina Physical Science Complex as faculty di- 
rector, and spent four years as director of the Morehead Plan- 
etarium and Science Center. 

Nationally, Thorp serves on the Associations Patent Re- 
form Task Force, an advisory body to six associations repre- 
senting U.S. higher education in a Congressional effort to 
reform patent law. He has published 130 scholarly articles on 
the electronic properties of DNA and RNA. He invented 
technology for electronic DNA chips that led to 19 issued or 
pending U.S. patents. 

Although Thorp has lived mostly in North Carolina, he 
conducted a state tour during part of his first year as chancel- 
lor to show his personal commitment to the University's mis- 
sion of serving the state. Stops included visits with high 
school students, university students, alumni and all UNC 
system chancellors. 

An accomplished musician who plays jazz bass and key- 
board, Thorp is married to Patti Worden Thorp, a Hope Mills 
native and UNC Greensboro graduate. Their children are 
John and Emma. 



Keep up with Chancellor Thorp's chronicles 
of Carolina at his blog, holden.unc.edu, which 
features photos, video and audio. 



"It's on us to do more than teach, more than educate. We must 
inspire our students to reach beyond themselves and take on the 
great problems facing the world." 



I'M A „ 

TAR | HEEL 



IT'S A FEELING YOU GET when you are in Chapel Hill 
- a feeling that this is indeed a special place. It's not just brilliant 
students, or a Nobel Prize winner, or Hall of Fame coaches, or 
championship teams, or some of the most recognizable athletes 
in sports. This place is the sum of its parts - parts individually 
committed to the highest level of excellence in all that they do. 
It is the University of North Carolina. 



I'm the first person in my family to go to college. 
I don't take that for granted. I approach every day 
with the goal of succeeding the Carolina Way, and I 
thank the Carolina Family for making that possible. 

I'm Marvin Austin, 

and I'm a Tar Heel. 



It is every person working toward a goal of making themselves 
better - which in turn makes Carolina, as a team, stronger. It is 
the personal commitment to wake up at 5:00 a.m. for practice. It 
-is the lone shooter in the gym without the lights or the screaming 
fans. It is practicing hard day in and day out for the betterment of 
the team, knowing your jersey may never feel sweat on game day. 
It is busing back from a road game late at night, only to arise for 
that early morning mid-term exam ... and making Dean's List. It 
is an understanding that this is the Carolina Way - and it is what 
it means to be a Tar Heel. 



The Rams Club supports this commitment to the highest level of excel- 
lence. Pleasejoin ourefforts to make this experience possible forCaro- 
linastudent-athletes. And give them the opportunity to say with pride: 

I'M A TAR HEEL. 




The Rams Club 




The Rams Club - A Need for Growth 



The cost of competing at the highest level and educating out- 
standing student-athletes continues to climb. The Rams Club must 
grow its membership and level of support to keep Carolina as one 
of the nation's premier athletics programs both athletically and 
academically. 

The Rams Club has witnessed impressive growth over the past sev- 
eral years - 51% of members have joined within the last 10 years. 
Membership in The Rams Club is available through endowment 
and annual gifts. Gifts of all sizes are important - 47% of all An- 
nual Fund gifts are between $100 and $1,000. This growth must 
continue to meet the escalating needs of Carolina's 28 varsity 
sports and its student-athletes. 



As a member of The Rams Club, you provide a vital component 
to the success of Tar Heel student-athletes. Your membership 
provides Carolina student-athletes the opportunity to proudly say, 
"I'm a Tar Heel."

TAR 3 HEEL 



Annual Fund 

Donations through the Annual Fund offers The Rams Club the oppor- 
tunity 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. 

Scholarship Endowment 

The Rams 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 Half Scholarships in support of student-athletes which provide 
in perpetuity the support to a broad-based athletics program. 

Carolina Forver - Planned Giving 

As the Rams Club's planned giving program, Carolina Forever offers 
donors an opportunity to make a lasting impact by involving Caro- 
lina 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.

To me, being a Tar Heel means more than just 
being a student-athlete. It's about representing 
the university, and carrying on the great tradition 
that so many Tar Heels have built before me. 

I'm T.J. Yates, 

and I'm a Tar Heel. , """ 




NORTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL • KENAN STADIUM - HOME OF THE TAR HEELS 




Carolina football plays its home games at Kenan 
Memorial Stadium (eap. 60,000), one of the most 
picturesque athletic venues in America. Kenan 
Stadium has been the home of the Tar Heels since 
1927 and the thrill of playing 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 suipassed. 

The stadium has been expanded several times 
since its completion in 1927. In each instance, 
though, great care was taken to keep its funda- 
mental beauty intact. The addition 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, theater and Hall 
of Honor. 

An additional floor was added to the Kenan 
Football Center after the 2008 season. The fifth 
floor contains additional office and recruiting space 
for the day-to-day operations of the football pro- 
gram, four premium gameday suites, a larger video 
and studio facility and a state-of-the-art press confer- 
ence area. The recruiting area and suites also are 
used as academic study areas during the week. The 
second floor was completely renovated for increased 
football meeting spaces, including bigger individual 
position meeting rooms and a larger team meeting 
room. The fourth floor renovations added additional 
office space for football support staff. 

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 are also featured in the 
Hall of Honor. Special plaques, flags and an audio- 
visual presentation on each player are highlighted. 

The James A. Heavner Theater was made possible 



by a 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 personali- 
ties. They 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 of the more than 400 former 
Tar Heels who donated more than $2 million to the 
project; the Nassif 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 W. 
Garrell coaches meeting room. 

The 1997 expansion project, in which great care 
was taken to ensure that the surrounding environ- 
ment would be altered as little as possible, ties the 
north and south concourses to either end of the lower 
deck via the third level of the Kenan Center, making 
fan movement around the stadium much easier. That 
project also added nearly 8,000 seats, 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 con- 
tributions through the Educational Foundation and 
bonded indebtedness from the athletic department 
through the sale of revenue-generating bonds. The 
Educational Foundation and its members committed 
more than $50 million to the project. 

Two ribbon videoboards on the facade of the 
North and South side upper levels were added in 
2007. In 2003, a $2 million scoreboard at the east 
end of 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 of the late Frank H. 
Kenan, one ol the school's 
most generous benefactors. 
Kenan was a Durham resident 
and chief executive officer «it 
Kenan Transport Company in 
Chapel Hill. He passed away at 
age 83 in 1996. 

Kenan, a 1935 Carolina 
graduate, was the great-great- 
grandson ol 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 mil- 
lion 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 
funds 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 S3 1 mil- 
lion. The largest portion of that was targeted for the 
business school. In 1991 the school was renamed the 
Kenan-Flagler Business School after a S10 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 for 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, 68 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 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 sta- 
dium's south side. It is a one-level elongated struc- 
ture, running from 10-yard line to 10-yard line.

Also part of the 1987-88 project were a perma- 
nent lighting 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 interna- 
tional industrialist. Kenan discovered carbide and 
made monumental progress in the field of chemis- 
try. During his business career he was president of 
The Florida East 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 par- 
ents, 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 of nearly 40 alumni had contributed 
$27,926. At this time, however, a copy of the pro- 
spectus and plan of financing the stadium came into 
the hands of Kenan, who expressed an interest in 
the proposal. Kenan was considering establishing 
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 benefaction 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 lo 
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 SI .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 capacity to 48,000. That was 
expanded to 50,000 in 1979, 52,000 in 1988, 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 counsel- 
ing 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 sta- 
dium — 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 after sunset. Portable lights were also 
used in the 1987 Clemson game which was televised 
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.

4$ NORTH CAROLINA REVIEW • 2008 REVIEW NOTES 



CAROLINA FINISHES 8-5 IN 2008 



North Carolina was 8-5 in 2008, a four-game im- 
provement from 2007 and advanced to a postseason 
bowl game for the first time since 2004. The Tar Heels 
were in contention for the ACC title until the final week 
of the season and spent nearly half the season ranked 
among the top 25. Carolina posted wins over three 
ranked teams - Connecticut, Notre Dame and Georgia 
Tech - and notched impressive victories at Miami and 
vs. Notre Dame in Kenan Stadium. The Tar Heels fell 
to West Virginia, 31 -30, in the Meineke Car Care 
Bowl in Charlotte on Dec. 27 to close the season. 

HAKEEM NICKS FINISHES INCREDIBLE CAROLINA 
CAREE R 

Charlotte, NC, native Hakeem Nicks finished his 
career as arguably the top receiver in Carolina history. 
The 6-2, 210-pound junior set 14 school records in 
just three seasons in Chapel Hill. He ranked first in 
the ACC in receiving yards (94.0/game), second in 
receptions (5.23/game) and sixth in all-purpose yards 
(106.9). In 2008, he had 68 receptions for 1 ,222 
yards and 1 2 touchdowns. He also had five rushes for 
34 yards and one touchdown. Nicks became the first 
player in school history to top the 1 , 000-yard receiv- 
ing mark and also set the single-season record with 1 2 
touchdown receptions.

• Safety Trimane Goddard was named a second-team 
All-America by The Associated Press and The Walter 
Camp Football Foundation. The senior from Rober- 
sonville, N.C. led the nation with seven interceptions. 
He twice sealed a Carolina victory on the last play of 
the game with a turnover. He picked off a pass in the 
end zone at Miami and recovered a fumble vs. Notre 
Dame to ensure a Carolina victory. 

• Linebacker Bruce Carter led the nation with five 
blocked kicks, including three in one game vs. Con- 
necticut. Carter is believed to be the only player in 
NCAA history to block four consecutive punts (last one 
vs. Miami and three vs. UConn.) 

• Linebacker Quan Sturdivant led the nation with 87 
primary tackles. The 6-2, 235-pound sophomore 
ranked third in the ACC and 20th in country with 9.4 
tackles per game. 

• Senior Mark Paschal was voted the team defensive 
MVP and ranked fourth in the ACC and 21 st in the 
country in tackles per game (9.4). 

• Brandon Tate became the NCAA all-time leader in 
combined kick return yards with 3,523. He set the 
school record with his sixth kick return for a touch- 
down. Against McNeese State, he set the school 
record with 397 all-purpose yards. 

• A year following brain surgery, freshman defensive 
end Robert Quinn was named the 2008 ACC Piccolo 




Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks set 1 4 school records in just 
three seasons in Chapel Hill. 

Award winner as the league's most courageous player. 
The Ladson, S.C., native started 1 2 games and had 26 
tackles and 6.5 tackles for losses. 

CAROLINA COMEB ACKS 

Coming from behind to win was nothing new for the 
2008 Tar Heels. Carolina trailed in seven of its eight 
wins, including three (Miami, Notre Dame, Boston 
College) by deficits of at least 1 points. The only time 
Carolina did not trail was in a 28-7 win over No. 22 
Georgia Tech. 

THREE WINS OVER RANKED TEAMS 



North Carolina won three games over ranked teams 
in 2008, including No. 22 Georgia Tech, No. 24 
Connecticut and No. 23 Boston College. All three 
wins came at home, marking the first season in school 
history that Carolina has earned three victories over 
ranked teams. Carolina also posted three victories 
against ranked teams in 1 992, but only two came at 
home. North Carolina's average margin of victory 
against ranked teams this season was 22.6 points 
(UConn by 26, BC by 21 , Georgia Tech by 21 ). 

TAR HEELS EIGHTH IN THE NATION IN 
INTERCEPTIONS 



Carolina finished eighth in the nation with 20 intercep- 
tions. The Tar Heels intercepted at least one pass in 
1 of 13 games and had multiple interceptions in six 
games, including a season-high four at Rutgers. The 
only games Carolina did not pick off a pass were in

Carolina 35, McNeese State 27 

August 30, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Brandon 
Tate put on a dazzling one man 
show, scoring on an 82-yard punt 
return and putting North Carolina 
ahead for good with a 57-yard catch to help the Tar 
Heels hold off McNeese State 35 27 on Saturday 

Tate finished with a school-record 397 all-purpose 
yards for the Tar Heels, who showed little else in their 
second season under Butch Davis. In a game suspended 
nearly two hours due to weather, they blew a 1 4-0 
first-half lead and had to rally from a third-quarter deficit 
against a Football Championship Subdivision opponent. 

For all the preseason optimism that has abounded 
here, North Carolina had to rely almost solely on Tate's 
ability to weave through oncoming defenders or break 
free from the clutches of would-be tacklers on this night. 

The senior started with a 56-yard return on the 
opening kickoff and had a 54-yard run that helped set 
up the Tar Heels' second touchdown. He also had a 
38-yard punt return in the first quarter, finishing with 106 
yards rushing and 93 yards receiving to break the school 
record of 339 all-purpose yards set by Derrick Fenner in 
1986. The 397 yards were second-most in Atlantic Coast 
Conference history. 

Brooks Foster also had a touchdown catch for 
North Carolina, which compiled most of its 384 yards in 
the final 20 minutes. Shaun Draughn and Greg Little ran 
for fourth-quarter touchdowns that helped the Tar Heels 
stay in front. 

Derrick Fourroux and Mark Fontenot ran for scores 
to lead the Cowboys, who scored 20 unanswered points 
after the game resumed. But after Fourroux's 2-yard 
score for the 20-14 third-quarter lead, the Tar Heels 
answered by going to - who else? - Tate. 

Facing a third-and-6 near midfield, T.J. Yates 
heaved the ball deep to Tate, who caught it in stride and 
raced into the end zone for a 21 -20 lead with 4:35 left 
in the third quarter. 

Tate later broke the school record in fitting fashion, 
taking a handoff to the right side, then breaking free 
from Joshua Ellison - who had a hold of Tate's collar - 
and reversing field for a 20-yard gain early in the fourth. 

Ultimately, the only thing that slowed Tate was the 
weather. Officials suspended the game due to lightning 
with North Carolina leading 14-0 on Foster's short TD 
catch with 1 2:03 left in the first half. Both teams headed 
to the locker room before heavy rain arrived in a delay 
that lasted 1 hour, 48 minutes.

September 1 1 , 2008 

Rutgers Stadium • Piscataway, N.J. 



["A C PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -T.J. Yates 
J LA V- threw three touchdown passes 

I I I J and the Tar Heels won for the first 

time outside North Carolina since 
2002, beating error-prone Rutgers 44-12 in a nationally 
televised game that pitted Davis against his former pupil, 
Greg Schiano. 

Yates found a wide open Hakeem Nicks on 
touchdown passes of 9 and 1 1 yards and connected on 
a 69-yard scoring play with speedster Brandon Tate, who 
also scored on a 1 2-yard end around. 

The Tar Heels intercepted four passes, including 
three by starter Mike Teel. Linebacker Bruce Carter re- 
turned a bobbled pass 66 yards for a touchdown as the 
Tar Heels (2-0) handed Rutgers (0-2) its worst loss since 
a 56-5 loss to Louisville on Nov. 1 1 , 2005 Freshman Jay 
Woolen added field goals of 43, 29 and 27 yards 

The victory was the Tar Heels' biggest since a 52- 
1 7 win over Duke in 200 1 . 

The start is the best since 2000 for North Carolina, 
which is looking for its first winning season since 2001 
The Tar Heels were 4-8 a year ago in Davis' first season 

In many ways, the Scarlet Knights looked like the 
Rutgers of old. They blew pass coverages on all three 
of Yates' TD passes, had a bad punt lead to a North 
Carolina score and saw their senior quarterback turn the 
ball over three times. 

By the time the third quarter was over, North 
Carolina had a 38-6 lead and only a couple of thousand 
fans from the sellout crowd of 42,502 were on hand 
for a derisive cheer when Teel threw a fourth-quarter 
touchdown pass to Kevin Brock. 

Davis, who hired Schiano as his defensive coor- 
dinator at Miami, saw his team improve markedly after 
struggling in the season opener against McNeese State. 

Yates finished 14-of-22 for 221 yards and matched 
his career high with the three TD passes. Tate caught 
four passes for a career-best 1 38 yards. His 69-yard 
touchdown catch was the longest of his career. Nicks 
added six catches for 63 yards with the two TDs, tying 
his single-game high. 

North Carolina took control of the game with 38 
points in the second and third quarters. The Tar Heels 
scored on three straight possessions in the second to take 
a 1 7-6 halftime lead.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Dustin Keys 
kicked the go ahead 45-yard field 
goal to cap Virginia Tech's comeback 
from a two-touchdown deficit and beat North Carolina 
20 1 7 in a matchup of Atlantic Coast Conference dm 
sion favorites. 

Kenny Lewis Jr. and Darren Evans each ran for 
second half touchdowns for the Hokies (3-1 , 2-0 ACC), 
who struggled much of the game and trailed 1 7-3 
midway through the third quarter before finding a way to 
win their fifth straight in the series 

Virginia Tech managed just 268 total yards and 
converted only three of 1 6 third downs, but hung around 
and took advantage of their opportunities to get back in 
the game. 

Brandon Tate and Greg Little each scored touch- 
downs for the Tar Heels (2-1 , 0-1 ), who had pointed to 
this game as their shot to prove they had arrived as a 
rising league power in Butch Davis' second season 

Instead, North Carolina's players and fans got a 
painful reminder that the rebuilding project will not be an 
overnight success 

Despite stuffing the Hokies at nearly every turn 
while their offense slowly but steadily moved the ball, the 
Tar Heels saw it all unravel quickly They had 14 penal- 
ties for 121 yards - including a pair on third down to 
extend the Hokies' first TD drive - while committing four 
turnovers, miscues made worse when they lost quarter- 
back T.J. Yates to a broken left ankle in the third quarter 

Little's 50-yard run up the middle gave North 
Carolina the 1 7 3 lead with 6:44 to play in the third, 
but the Hokies answered with a 1 3-play, 89-yard drive 
that ended with Evans' 1 0-yard run to make it 17-10. 
Then, after Little fumbled at North Carolina's 36-yard 
line, Virginia Tech capitalized again and tied it on Lewis' 
1 1 -yard run with 1 3:45 to go. 

Finally, the Tar Heels committed a late-hit penalty on 
a punt return that set up Keys' go-ahead kick 

Yates, who was hurt while being sacked by Orion 
Martin, left the stadium briefly for X-rays before returning 
and watching the final minutes from a training table That 
forced the Tar Heels to turn to redshirt freshman Mike 
Paulus, who threw an interception to end North Caro- 
lina's last best drive and threw another one on fourth 
down deep in his own end to seal the game. 

Paulus finished 3-for-8 for 23 yards, while Tyrod 
Taylor shook off two interceptions to lead the Hokies' 
comeback before leaving the game with after injuring his 
ankle in the final period.

Carolina 28, Miami 24 

September 27, 2008 

Dolphin Stadium • 

Miami Gardens, Fla. 

MIAMI (AP) -Cameron Sexton 



threw a 14-yard touchdown pass 
to Brooks Foster with 46 seconds left, Trimane Goddard 
had two interceptions in the final minutes, and North 
Carolina rallied from an early 1 4-point deficit to beat 
Miami 28-24. 

Sexton - playing because North Carolina starter 
T.J. Yates will miss six weeks with a broken left ankle - 
relieved starter Mike Paulus early and completed 1 1 of 
19 passes for 242 yards, including two fourth -quarter 
scores. 

He found Hakeem Nicks with a 74-yard pass with 
9 minutes remaining, then coolly found Foster in the right 
corner of the end zone in the final minute to give North 
Carolina (3-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) its first 
lead of the day. 

Miami had one more chance, getting the ball at 
its own 31 . Robert Marve found Kayne Farquharson for 
a 29-yard gain that took the Hurricanes to the North 
Carolina 20 with 1 5 seconds remaining 

Marve nearly hooked up with Farquharson again 
on the final play of the game, but Goddard's second pick 
of the quarter sealed the Tar Heels' win. Farquharson 
had his hands on the ball in the end zone, yet Goddard 
was the one who wound up with possession 

Marve threw three touchdown passes for Miami 
(2-2, 0- 1 ), and Graig Cooper rushed for 1 1 yards plus 
had a receiving TD for the Hurricanes, who lost to the Tar 
Heels for the second straight season. 

Down 24-1 4 midway through the fourth quarter af- 
ter Marve connected with Aldarius Johnson on a 4-yard 
touchdown pass, the Tar Heels went to work. Nicks 
caught the ball ahead of a diving Bruce Johnson for 
the first North Carolina touchdown of the final quarter, 
seeming to stun the Hurricanes a bit, and then Sexton 
delivered the perfect touch pass at the end. 

It was a stirring turnaround, especially considering 
how the game started. 

The Hurricanes needed only eight plays to go 
89 yards - with Cooper rushing three times for 60 of 
them - on the opening drive, capped by Marve finding 
Farquharson with a 9-yard touchdown pass. 

A special-teams blunder by the Tar Heels later in 
the opening quarter gave Miami a two-touchdown edge. 

Miami made it look easy in the first 1 5 minutes, out- 
gaining North Carolina 127-24, limiting the Tar Heels to 
minus-4 yards rushing and less than two yards per play. 

Suddenly, everything that went right in the first 
quarter suddenly stopped for Miami.

Carolina 38, Connecticut 12 

October 4, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Shaun 
Draughn rushed for a career-high 
1 09 yards and a touchdown, 
defensive lineman Marvin Austin 
returned an interception 23 yards for another score and 
North Carolina routed No 24 Connecticut 38-12. 

Bruce Carter blocked three punts, Matt Merletti fell 
on one of them for a touchdown and Draughn's 39-yard 
touchdown run started the game-breaking sequence that 
gave the Tar Heels their first win over a ranked team in 
three years. 

Ryan Houston had a 1 -yard score and Cameron 
Sexton threw a 1 3-yard touchdown pass to Hakeem 
Nicks for North Carolina (4- 1 ), which overcame some 
shortcomings on the stat sheet by scoring 21 points off 
Husky mistakes. UConn outgained the Tar Heels 378-263 
and had a 10-minute advantage in time of possession, 
but couldn't overcome three interceptions by new starter 
Zach Frazer. 

Donald Brown, the nation's leading rusher, ran for 
161 yards--20 below his average—with a touchdown 
for the Huskies (5-1 ) But 93 of those yards came in the 
fourth quarter, well after this one was decided. 

Draughn, a former safety, took a handoff from 
Sexton midway through the third quarter and raced 
untouched up the middle to make it 24-6. 

Frazer's third interception came about 2 minutes 
later, and sealed it. Frazer was being spun by defensive 
end E.J. Wilson and tried to throw the ball away when 
Austin plucked it out of the air and jogged into the end 
zone. 

Frazer completed 24 of 42 passes for 210 yards in 
place of injured starter Tyler Lorenzen, who's out with a 
broken right foot. 

Making his first start since 2006, Sexton was 9-of- 
1 6 for 117 yards with an interception, but led the Tar 
Heels to their first nonconference victory over a Top 25 
team since beating then-No 17 Stanford in 1997. They 
had lost nine straight against ranked teams since upset- 
ting then-No. 1 9 Boston College in 2005. 

Yet this was no upset: North Carolina entered as a 
seven-point favorite. 

Still, UConn outgained the Tar Heels 169-107 in the 
first half, had the ball for nearly twice as long--and still 
trailed 1 7-3 because of mistakes by Frazer and the punt 
team. 

The game was delayed for 22 minutes early in the 
third quarter when two banks of lights temporarily went 
dark.

Carolina 29, Notre Dame 24 

J^JP October 1 1 , 2008 

WflV"Wfe Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 

W&MBr CHAPEL HILL, N C (AP) Cameron 
^H ^B Sexton scored on a leaping 4-yard 

keeper to start the fourth quarter 
and Quan Sturdivant had a momentum-changing 32- 
yard interception return to help the No. 22 Tar Heels 
beat the Fighting Irish 29-24, providing another boost to 
coach Butch Davis' rebuilding effort. 

The Tar Heels (5-1 ), off to their best start since go- 
ing 8-0 in 1 997, beat the Fighting Irish (4-2) for the first 
time since 1 960. 

Hakeem Nicks had nine catches for 141 yards and 
freshman walk-on Casey Barth kicked three field goals, 
helping North Carolina rally from an 1 1 -point first-half 
deficit. 

The Tar Heels' offense failed to reach the end zone 
in the first half while their defense struggled to slow 
Jimmy Clausen and the Notre Dame passing game. But 
their knack for forcing turnovers - four after halftime - 
was enough to help them hang on in a game that came 
down to a wild finish. 

It was Notre Dame's first game in the state of North 
Carolina since unheralded sophomore Joe Montana led 
a comeback win here in 1 975. 

The teams certainly provided a memorable finish, 
with Notre Dame reaching the North Carolina 7 in 
the final seconds before officials ruled - after a review 
- that receiver Michael Floyd fumbled the ball in what 
appeared to be a frantic attempted lateral. Trimane God- 
dard recovered, giving the ball back to North Carolina 
for a joyous kneel-down with 3 seconds left. 

Clausen threw for a career-best 383 yards - his 
third straight career game - and touchdowns to Golden 
Tate and Floyd that helped the Irish take a 1 7-9 halftime 
lead. 

Notre Dame finished with 472 yards, but couldn't 
overcome two interceptions and two lost fumbles in the 
second half. 

The Tar Heels went most of the way without big-play re- 
ceiver and returner Brandon Tate, who sprained his right 
knee in the first quarter. Nicks picked up the slack with 
another big day against the Irish after tallying six catches 
for 1 71 yards and a score against them two years ago 
in South Bend. Converted safety Shaun Draughn added 
his second straight solid game, finishing with 91 yards 
rushing on 1 7 carries. 

Sexton threw for 201 yards, but he made his big- 
gest play with his feet, scrambling right on third down 
and jumping through a hit from Kyle McCarthy at the 
goal line for the 29-24 lead with 1 4:55 to play.

Virginia 16, Carolina 13 (OT) 

October 1 8, 2008 

Scott Stadium • Charlottesville, Va. 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -Cedric 
Peerman scored from two yards in 
overtime to give Virginia a 16-13 win over No. 1 8 North 
Carolina 

Virginia (4-3, 2- 1 , ACC) trailed 1 0-3 with 2: 1 8 
to play, but Peerman scored on a two-yard run with 47 
seconds left in regulation and Robert Randolph's conver- 
sion was barely good to send the game into overtime. 

Casey Barth kicked a 28-yard field goal to begin 
OT, and North Carolina (5-2, 1-2) led 13-10. 

Tight end John Phillips caught a 1 9-yard pass 
from Marc Verica to put the ball on the Tar Heels' four. 
Peerman ran for two yards and then two more for the 
winning score. 

North Carolina, which won its previous three 
games and was off to its best start since winning eight 
straight games to start 1 997, was without key playmaker 
Brandon Tate, who suffered torn ligaments in his right 
knee in last week's win over Notre Dame. He was lost for 
the season. 

Sophomore Shaun Draughn had 1 3 carries for 80 
yards in the first quarter. He had 1 40 yards--the third 
straight game he's rushed for more than 100. 

Virginia, held to just 1 8 yards in the first quarter 
and 59 in the first half, got a fortunate break early in 
the third quarter. Sexton's short pass rolled right into the 
arms of nose tackle Nick Jenkins for an interception. 

The Cavaliers took over on the Tar Heel 34, but had 
to settle for a 37-yard field goal by Randolph. 

On the Tar Heels' next possession, Nicks caught a 
pass near midfield and fumbled. After Chase Minnifield 
recovered the ball on Virginia's 45, the Cavaliers were 
able to drive to the North Carolina 23. 

Randolph attempted a 39-yard field goal, but it was 
blocked. 

Virginia drove to the North Carolina 39, but its 
drive stalled, and was forced to punt. The Tar Heels took 
over on their own five-yard line with 9:51 to play and 
made three third-down plays--two receptions by Nicks 
and a 10-yard run by Draughn to keep the ball away 
from the Cavaliers. Nicks, who leads the ACC in receiv- 
ing added a 23-yarder after North Carolina called its 
final timeout with the ball on the Virginia 42. 

Barth 's 40-yard field goal with 2:22 remaining 
gave the Tar Heels their 1 0-3 lead. The Tar Heels' 1 5- 
play drive lasted 7:29. 

Getting the ball back with 2: 1 8 to play, the Cava- 
liers drove 82 yards in 1 :35, Peerman scored on a two- 
yard run, and Randolph lined up for the extra point. His 
attempt was tipped and barely made it over the crossbar 
for a 10-10 tie with 47 seconds to play.

October 25, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Hakeem 
Nicks had three second quarter 
touchdown catches and ran for a 
score in the fourth quarter to help North Carolina beat 
No. 23 Boston College 45 24 

Trimane Goddard added an interception return for 
a touchdown for the Tar Heels (6 2, 2-2 ACC), who fell 
behind 10-0 in the first quarter before roaring back with 
a dominating performance that made them bowl-eligible 
for the first time in four years. The Tar Heels also got a 
short touchdown run from Ryan Houston after a long 
interception return by Kendric Burney, who had two of 
the team's three picks of BC quarterback Chris Crane. 

Nicks finished with eight catches for 1 39 yards 
- with 1 27 yards coming in a 24-point second quarter - 
and three rushes for 31 yards, proving to be a matchup 
the Eagles (5-2, 2-2) had no answer for all day He had 
TD catches of 26, 40 and 43 yards to go with his 1 2- 
yard rushing score. 

Cameron Sexton threw for 238 yards, while Shaun 
Draughn had 64 yards rushing in a 352-yard day for 
the offense. That was more than enough against Boston 
College, which finished with 244 total yards behind a 
shaky performance from Crane. 

Crane threw for 204 yards and two touchdowns, 
while the Eagles got just 40 yards rushing. 

Boston College's defense got the Eagles off to a fast 
start, with Ron Brace sacking Sexton on North Carolina's 
third play and forcing a fumble that Kevin Akins scooped 
up and returned 1 3 yards for a 1 0-0 lead with 6: 1 8 left 
in the opening period. 

There were few highlights for BC from there. Crane 
threw a short TD pass just before halftime, but didn't 
direct another scoring drive until the final minutes By 
then, North Carolina had put the game far out of reach. 

Sexton connected with Nicks 31 seconds after 
Crane's TD toss to make it 24- 1 7 at the break. Then 
Burney picked off Crane on the Eagles' first possession of 
the second half and returned it to BC's 1 -yard line to set 
up Houston's score on the next play. 

Goddard essentially closed the door, lumping in 
front of Crane's pass for Brandon Robinson near midfield 
and going 51 yards for the score and a 38-17 lead on 
the first play of the fourth quarter.

November 8, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North 
Carolina's defense hung in against 
Georgia Tech's triple option attack 
long enough for the offense to finally get moving. Ryan 
Houston ran for a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to 
help North Carolina beat the 22nd-ranked Yellow Jackets 
28-7, ensuring their first winning season in seven years. 

Cameron Sexton added two touchdown passes for 
the Tar Heels (7-2, 3-2 ACC), while Hakeem Nicks had 
a touchdown catch and set the school record for career 
receiving yardage in the final period. 

North Carolina also used a strong 1 -2 rushing at- 
tack with Houston and Shaun Draughn, and converted a 
pair of fumbles into touchdowns to break the game open 
late 

It was clear the Tar Heels were prepared, Georgia 
Tech couldn't sustain a scoring drive nor push deeper 
than the Tar Heels' 23-yard line until Jonathan Dwyer's 
85-yard touchdown run - the longest rush allowed by 
North Carolina - with 6 minutes left By then, however, 
the Tar Heels already had a 21 -0 lead 

Dwyer, the league's No. 2 rusher, ran for 1 57 yards 
for the Yellow Jackets (7-3, 4-3), who finished with 326 
yards rushing and 423 total yards 

But they did themselves in with several miscues 
that kept them scoreless until the game was out of reach 
- none bigger than the back to back turnovers in the 
third and fourth quarters. There were also two missed 
field goals and two failed fourth-and-short conversion 
attempts in the first half. 

North Carolina's offense didn't give its defense 
much help, getting Sexton's touchdown pass to Zack 
Pianalto on the opening drive but little else for the next 
two-plus quarters. That is, until Georgia Tech's Roddy 
Jones muffed a punt that was recovered by Matt Merletti 
at the Yellow Jackets 30 late in the third quarter. 

North Carolina converted quickly, getting an 8-yard 
run from Draughn to help set up Houston's 2-yard score 
that made it 1 4-0 with 1 3:57 to play 

Then, Robert Quinn stripped Jaybo Shaw on a 
keeper and Paschal recovered the fumble on the ensuing 
possession. Houston converted again, running four 
straight times before bouncing off a hit from Morgan 
Burnett at the goalline for a 3-yard score that pushed the 
lead to 21 points with 10:49 left. 

Draughn finished with 90 yards rushing and Hous- 
ton had a career-high 74 to offset a shaky passing day 
from Sexton, who went just 7-for-16 for 100 yards. 

But Sexton found Nicks for an easy 31 -yard score 
on fourth down with 4: 1 1 left to seal it, and Nicks set the 
receiving record with a 22-yard catch a little later from 
T.J. Yates, making his first appearance in relief from a 
broken ankle suffered in September.

NORTH CAROLINA REVIEW • 2008 RECAPS 




Maryland 1 7, Carolina 1 5 

November 1 5, 2008 

Byrd Stadium • College Park, Md. 

COLLEGE PARK, MD. (AP) -Playing 
on a wet field, facing a tough North 
Carolina defense and starting 82 
yards from the end zone, Maryland 
desperately needed a score to keep alive its run of suc- 
cess against ranked teams. 

Chris Turner made it happen, engineering a 
dramatic 1 9-play drive that provided the Terrapins with a 
17-15 victory over the No. 1 7 Tar Heels. 

Obi Egekeze kicked a 26-yard field goal with 1 :42 
left to cap a 73-yard march that lasted nearly 9 minutes 
and produced the only points of the second half. 

An 1 8-yard completion from Turner to Ronnie Tyler 
on a third-and-1 1 from the Maryland 44 helped, but the 
key was an impromptu 9-yard run by Turner on a fourth- 
and-5 at the Carolina 32. 

Da'Rel Scott ran for 1 29 yards and a touchdown 
and Davin Meggett had 86 rushing yards for Maryland 
(7-3, 4-2). The Tar Heels (7-3, 3-3) dropped out of first 
place in the Coastal Division and remained winless at 
Maryland since 1997. 

North Carolina converted only one of 1 1 third 
downs and finished with only 75 yards rushing. It was 
their third loss by three points or fewer. 

After Egekeze's late field goal, Cameron Sexton's 
bid to bring the Tar Heels back ended with an intercep- 
tion by Jamari McCollough in the final minute. 

Sexton went 10-for-24 for 1 66 yards and took the 
blame for an offense that produced only 1 1 first downs. 

North Carolina missed a chance to increase its one- 
point lead late in the third quarter when Casey Barth's 
28-yard field goal attempt hit the left upright. A 44-yard 
pass from running back Shaun Draughn to Brooks Foster 
preceded the errant kick. 

The Tar Heels got the ball back when a fumble by 
second-string quarterback Josh Portis was recovered by 
Quinton Copies at the Maryland 33, but three straight 
incomplete passes led to a punt. 

A back-and-forth first half, played at times in heavy 
rain, ended with North Carolina up 1514. 

The game's first points came on a Maryland 
mistake: a snap over the head of punter Travis Baltz, who 
dived on the ball in the end zone for a 42-yard loss and 
a safety. 

After Barth added a field goal, Scott capped a 
76-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run to put the 
Terrapins up 7-5. 

Two plays later, Sexton lofted a pass on the run that 
cleared leaping defensive back Kenny Tate and landed in 
the arms of Cooter Arnold, who completed the 59-yard 
play for his first career touchdown.

November 22, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Russell 
Wilson threw for two touchdowns and 
had a key run in the third quarter to 
set up another score, and NC State beat the 25th-ranked 
Tar Heels 41 -10. 

Tailback Jamelle Eugene ran for two touchdowns 
and Andre Brown ran for another for N.C. State (5-6, 
3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). 

NC State scored 21 points in the third quarter to 
blow it open, earning its biggest win in the series since a 
40-6 victory in 1 989. N.C. State finished with a season- 
high 466 total yards while holding North Carolina to a 
season-low 203, handing the Tar Heels (7-4, 3-4) their 
most lopsided loss under second-year coach Butch Davis. 

Wilson finished with a career-high 279 yards pass- 
ing to go with 50 yards rushing. The redshirt freshman 
also extended his interception-free streak to a school- 
record 203 passes, part of a turnover-free day against a 
defense that has been one of the nation's best at forcing 
mistakes. 

Instead, it was North Carolina giving it away. 

North Carolina committed six turnovers - two 
on fumbles by starting tailback Shaun Draughn in the 
opening 5 minutes - and got no spark from the return of 
quarterback T.J. Yates to the starting lineup. 

North Carolina's previous three losses were by a 
combined eight points. 

Yates started all 1 2 games last year and the first 
three this season before breaking his left ankle against 
Virginia Tech in September. One-time third-stringer 
Cameron Sexton had won four of six starts since, but 
Davis opened competition this week after Sexton's shaky 
performance in last weekend's loss at Maryland. 

Yates completed 1 of 22 passes for 1 1 6 yards and 
an interception before Davis opted for Sexton midway 
through the fourth quarter. By then, the Tar Heels trailed 
34-10 - though it might not have mattered who started at 
quarterback. 

The Wolfpack managed to convert only one of 
Draughn's early fumbles into a field goal and led 10-3 at 
halftime on Wilson's 1 7-yard TD pass to George Bryan. 
Then, leading 17-10, N.C. State put the game out of 
reach. 

With his mobility buying time against North Caro- 
lina's pass rush, Wilson completed passes to convert on 
third and fourth down before running 26 yards to set up 
Brown's 2-yard scoring run that made it 24-10. 

Then, a play after Richard Quinn fumbled away the 
ensuing kickoff, Wilson connected with Owen Spencer 
for a 21 -yard touchdown over the middle to push the 
lead to 31 -10 with 1:14 left in the third quarter.

November 29, 2008 
Wallace-Wade Stadium • 
Durham, N.C. 

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -A near-perfect 
T.J. Yates threw three touchdown 
passes, and Trimane Goddard 
intercepted a pass in the closing seconds to seal North 
Carolina's 28-20 victory over Duke. 

Shaun Draughn rushed for 1 10 yards and a touch- 
down and caught another score from Yates to help North 
Carolina (8-4, 4-4 ACC) snap a two-game losing streak 
and beat the Blue Devils (4-8, 1 -7) for the 1 8th time in 
1 9 years. 

Thaddeus Lewis led Duke into the red zone in the 
final minute before his fourth-down pass went straight to 
Goddard at the 4. 

Yates completed 1 5 of his first 1 6 passes and 
finished 1 5-of- 1 9 for 1 90 yards with scoring passes cov- 
ering 1 1 yards to Draughn, 25 yards to Hakeem Nicks 
and 32 yards to Richard Quinn. He won as a starter for 
the first time since Sept. 1 1 at Rutgers after after missing 
five games with a broken left ankle suffered a week later 
against Virginia Tech. 

Lewis finished 34-of-49 for 278 yards with an 
8-yard touchdown pass to Eron Riley. Vincent Rey 
returned a fumble 36 yards for a score for Duke, which 
ended David Cutcliffe's first season with five straight 
losses after starting 4-3. 

The Blue Devils have lost five straight in the rivalry 
for the Victory Bell, the rolling trophy that is annually 
spray-painted with the winning team's shade of blue. 

One possession after Duke made it a one-point 
game, Yates helped the Tar Heels retain ownership of the 
trophy when he faked a handoff, rolled right and hit a 
wide-open Quinn in stride. The tight end rumbled - and 
then spun - into the end zone with 1:16 left in the third. 

North Carolina - which was favored by a touch- 
down - didn't take its first lead until late in the second 
quarter, when Yates put the Tar Heels up 21 -14 with a 
deep ball to Nicks. 

The receiver pulled in the ball behind Glenn 
Williams near the back of the end zone for his school 
record-tying ninth TD catch. Nicks finished with three 
catches for 38 yards and became the school's first player 
with 1 ,000 yards receiving in a season. 

Duke closed to 2 1 - 1 7 at halftime on Joe Surgan's 
career-long 55-yard field goal on the final play, then 
made it 21-20 on Nick Maggio's 27-yard kick on the first 
series of the second half.

West Virginia 31, Carolina 30 

December 27, 2008 

Bank of America Stadium • 

Charlotte, N.C. 



CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Pat White 
threw for 332 yards, including a 
20-yard touchdown pass to Alric 
Arnett midway through the fourth quarter to send West 
Virginia to a 31 -30 win over North Carolina in the 
Meineke Car Care Bowl. 

The senior quarterback was voted MVP, helping 
West Virginia (9-4) overcome Hakeem Nicks' big day 
for North Carolina. Nicks caught eight passes for 217 
yards and three touchdowns for the Tar Heels (8-5}, but 
T.J. Yates was intercepted by Pat Lazear with under 2 
minutes left to end Butch Davis' hopes of a bowl win in 
his second year at North Carolina. 

White completed 26 of 32 passes and threw one 
interception. The NCAA's all-time leading rushing quar- 
terback added 55 more yards on the ground to finish 
with 4,480. 

After J.T. Thomas recovered Shaun Draughn's fumble 
at the West Virginia 30, White threw a 41 -yard pass 
over the middle to Jock Sanders, picked up nine yards 
on a running play and then rifled a pass between two 
defenders to Arnett for the go-ahead touchdown with 
7: 1 4 left. 

Yates couldn't find the dynamic Nicks on the Tar 
Heels' final drive, eventually throwing his first intercep- 
tion of the game. 

Nicks already set three school receiving records and 
shattered his career-high in yards receiving - with 10:37 



left in the second quarter. It was part of a dizzying 
offensive display by both teams that produced six touch 
downs in the game's first 20 minutes. 

Nicks' 25-yard TD catch from Yates early in the 
second quarter was his 178th career reception - another 
school record - and gave North Carolina a 23-21 lead 
The action thrilled a sellout crowd at Bank of America 
Stadium that included thousands of fans from both 
schools.

GEORGE BARCLAY, GUARD, 1934 

Barclay was Carolina's first football All-America. 
The 5-11, 1 85-pound guard and linebacker was 
a three-year standout for Chuck Collins and Carl 
Snavely. 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. 

AN DY 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, 1948 -49 

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 
career scorer, eighth-leading rusher and I8th-leading 
passer. He had a career punting average of 42.6 and 
averaged 14.2 yards on punt returns and 26.6 yards 
on kickoff returns. In 1948 he received the national 
player of the year award from the Washington 
Touchdown Club and was the recipient of the Walter 
Camp Memorial Trophy. Justice is a member of the 
College Football Hall of Fame. 




Charlie Justice (left) and Art Weiner, both members of 
the College Football Hall of Fame, helped lead the Tar 
Heels to back-to-back New Year's Day bowl games in 
1949-50. 



KEN POWELL, DEFENSIVE END, 1949 

Powell teamed with Art Weiner to give UNC a for- 
midable pass receiving threat in the post-Wold War II 
"Justice Era." He was outstanding in the 1947 Sugar 
Bowl against Georgia and earned first-team All- 
America honors at defensive end in 1949 by NEA. 
That organization named Powell to its All-America 
Team on defense, the first time it selected All- 
Americas on both offense and defense. He finished 
his career with 23 receptions for 324 yards and three 
touchdowns. 

ART WEINER, END, 1 948-49 



A great all-around end, Weiner led the nation in 
receiving in 1949 with 52 catches. He had been sev- 
enth nationally in receiving the previous year with 31 
catches. His 106 career catches are the ninth-most in 
school history and until 1997 he held the UNC career 
record with 18 touchdown receptions. Many remem- 
ber him best for a game-saving defensive play on the 
last snap of the 1949 Duke game. Weiner was named 
the most outstanding lineman in the Senior Bowl. 
Weiner was inducted into the College Football Hall 
of Fame in 1992.

IRV HOLDASH, CENTER, 1950^ 

While Carolina's football fortunes slipped in the 
years immediately following the Charlie Justice Era, 
Holdash still received national attention for his 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." 

AL G OLDSTEIN , END, 1958 



An outstanding two-way end, Goldstein earned All- 
America honors in 1 958 by making 24 catches for 490 
yards, averaging an amazing 20.4 yards per reception. 
Adept at making the seemingly impossible catch, 
he had a 68-yard TD reception at Virginia. He also 
starred defensively and had a 46-yard interception 
return for a touchdown against Maryland.

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.

McCauley shattered the Carolina and the Atlantic

senior season in 1970. He rushed for 1,720 yards 
and scored 21 touchdowns, setting marks which still 
stand. His 1 .720 yards was an all-time collegiate high 
at the time, breaking O.J. Simpson's NCAA record. 
McCauley led the nation in all-purpose running that 
season. He was twice the ACC Player of the Year and 
still ranks fifth in career rushing at UNC. He had a 
lengthy professional career with the Baltimore Colts. 
He was inducted into the College Football Hall of 
Fame in 2002.

performance in 1 970. McCauley rushed for 279 yards and scored five touchdowns in a 59-42 win over the Blue 
Devils. 



RON RUSNAK, OFFENSIVE GUARD, 1972 

Rusnuk was a unanimous All-America selection in 
1972 as Carolina posted an 11-1 record. At 6-2 and 
220 pounds, he did not have the size to play profes- 
sional football, but Rusnak was a great college player. 
He was a two-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference 
choice, starting on teams which combined for a 20-4 
record. In 1972 he won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy 
as the best blocker in the ACC. 

KEN HUFF, OFFENSIVE GUARD, 1974 



Huff was a key man on one of the most explosive 
units in Carolina history. He was the leader of an 
offensive line which helped the Tar Heels accumulate 
4,691 yards, at the time a school record, in 1974. 
The 6-4, 255-pound Huff won the Jacobs Blocking 
Trophy as the best blocker in the Atlantic Coast 
Conference. Sparked in great part by his play up front, 
the Tar Heels had two backs rush for over 1 ,000 yards 
in the same season. Huff was the third player selected 
in the NFL draft by the Baltimore Colts. 

CHARLES WADDELL, TIGH T END, 1974 

Waddell rates as one of the best all-around athletes in 
Carolina history. He won three football letters, two in 
basketball and one in track. Not only was he a fine 
receiver at tight end. but he was also a dynamic block- 
er. He set a school single-game record in 1974 with 
three touchdown catches against Clemson. He had 41 
career catches for 518 yards and seven TDs. His pro- 
fessional career was cut short by a knee injury.

DEE HARDISON, DEFENSIVE TACKLE, 1977 

A two-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, 
Hardison played on one of the top defensive teams 
in Carolina history. UNC led the nation in scoring 
defense in 1977, giving up just 7.4 points a game. 
The Tar Heels led the ACC in total, rushing, passing 
and scoring defense. A big reason was the play of 
Hardison, a 6-3, 252-pound tackle who dominated the 
line of scrimmage all season. After leaving Carolina 
he began a lengthy NFL career with the Buffalo 
Bills/ 

RICKY BARDEN, DEFENSIVE BACK, 1979 

One of the top defensive backs in Carolina history. 
Burden was a repeat All-Atlantic Coast Conference 
selection in 1978 and 1979. Burden made nine cureer 
interceptions. He started at cornerback for two years 
and then was shifted to strong safety for his final year 
where he broke up nine passes and was the third-lead- 
ing tackier on the team. His 156 yards on interception 
returns are the third-most in school history. 




Lawrence Taylor dominated college football in 1980, 
earning ACC player of the year honors. 



LAWRENCE TAYLOR, OUTSIDE 
LINEBACKER, 1980 

From midwa) in Ins junioi season until the end ol 

his senior year in 1980, Taylor dominated the foot- 
ball field as few defensive players ever had Now 
regarded as the finest outside linebacker in the his 
tory of the game, Taylor had a remarkable senior 
season which featured a school-record 16 quarterback 
sacks and six other tackles for losses. In Carolina's 
only close games in an I 1-1 season. Taylor made the 
game-saving defensive plays against Texas Tech and 
Clemson. He was a runaway selection as ACC Player 
ol the Year.

RON WOOTEN, OFFENSIVE GUARD, 1980 

Wooten won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy in 1980 as 
the best blocker in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He 
was the leading vote-getter in the offensive line on 
the All-ACC team. He was one of the leaders of an 
offensive line which helped the Tar Heels lead the 
ACC in total offense and which also helped produce 
two 1. 000-yard backs. He went on to become a start- 
ing guard with New England in the NFL. 

DAVID DRECHSLER, OFFENSIVE GUARD, 
1981-82 

Drechsler became Curolina's first two-time All- 
America since Charlie Justice and Art Weiner when 
he earned first-team honors in 1981 and 1982. He 
played every position in the offensive interior during 
his Carolina career, but settled in at guard. The 6-4, 
253-pound Drechsler played on Tur Heel teams which 
were 37-10-1 and were unbeaten in four bowl games. 
He also was the winner of a post-graduate scholar- 
ship from the NCAA. Drechsler went on to become a 
starter with the Green Buy Packers until a back injury 
forced him to give up the game. 

WILLIAM FULLER, DEFENSIVE TACKLE, 
1982-83 



Fuller is one of just six Carolina players to win first- 
team All-Americu honors twice. Although powerfully 
built at 6-3 and 250 pounds. Fuller's greatest asset 
was his quickness. He used that quickness to make 13 
tackles for losses and six sacks in 1982 and 17 tackles 
for losses with five sucks the following year. He was 
the only ununimous choice on the 1983 All-ACC 
team und is one of just three defensive linemen ever 
to make All-ACC for three straight years.

BRIAN BLADOS, OFFENSIVE TACKLE, 1983 

When two Carolina tailbacks ran for over 1 ,000 yards 
in 1983, much of that 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 90 of 100 ballots in voting for 
the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team. He was a 
first round choice by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 
NFL draft. 

HARRIS BARTON, OFFENSIVE TACKLE, 
1986 

Barton was a four-year starter for the Tar Heels, first 
at center and then at tackle. With so many teams 
playing even-man front defenses. Barton was moved 
to tackle in 1984 to take better advantage of his skills. 
He excelled at left tackle, the key blocking spot in 
the Carolina passing game. As a senior, he led an 
offensive line which helped the Tar Heels rank first in 
the Atlantic Coast Conference and sixth nationally in 
total offense. An excellent student, he was chosen for 
a post-graduate scholarship by the National Football 
Foundation and was a first-round selection in the 
NFL draft. 

PAT CROWLEY, OFFENSIVE GUARD, 1989 

Crowley was a standout offensive guard and a leader 
of the first of Mack Brown's teams. He won first- 
team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors in 1987, 
1988 and 1989 and became only the second offensive 
lineman in conference history to win three all-league 
honors (Virginia's Jim Dombrowski was the other). 
He started every game in his college career and 
helped open the way for a pair of 1, 000-yard backs 
(Derrick Fenner in 1986 and Kennard Martin in 
1988). He is one of three Tar Heels to be named first- 
team All-ACC in three seasons. 

BRACEY WAL KER, FRE E SAFETY, 199JL 



The first Carolina defensive back to ever receive first- 
team All-America honors by a major organization. 
Walker burst onto the scene in 1992 when he was one 
of the stars of the Peach Bowl win over Mississippi 
State. Walker blocked two punts in that game, 
returned one of them for a tying touchdown and set 
up the game-winning interception with a jarring colli- 
sion. He was the Defensive MVP of the Peach Bowl. 
In 1993 he led the Tar Heels with 100 tackles and 
was the co-leading vote-getter on the All-ACC first 
team defense. He also blocked four more punts, two 
of which were recovered in the end zone by Carolina, 
and was named the National Special Teams Player of 
the Year by Sports Illustrated.

MARCUS JONES, DEFENSIVE TACKLE, 
1995 

Jones became the first Tar Heel to earn consensus 
first-team All-America honors since Harris Barton in 
1986 and the first defensive lineman since William 
Fuller in 1982-83. Jones had 25 career sacks and 
finished with 222 tackles. That included 46 behind 
the line of scrimmage. He broke Lawrence Taylor's 
school record for sacks and held that mark until Greg 




Marcus Jones posted seven sacks and 19 tackles for 
losses in 1 995 en route to the ACC Defensive Player of 
the Year honors. 

Ellis broke the record in 1997. He was named the 
Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Player of the 
Year in 1995 and earned first-team All-ACC honors 
for the second straight season. He became the first Tar 
Heel defender to repeat all-conference selections since 
Tim Goad in 1986-87. As a senior he had a career- 
high 94 tackles, despite facing constant double- and 
triple-team efforts. He registered an ACC-leading 19 
tackles for losses for 74 yards, seven of which were 
quarterback sacks. He was hampered in the first half 
of the season by a knee sprain. Over the last five 
weeks, however, he averaged 10.8 tackles per game 
and had 16 tackles for losses for 65 yards, including 
six sacks for 41 yards, and pressured the quarterback 
13 times. Quite fittingly, Jones capped his career by 
sacking Arkansas quarterback Barry Lunney on the 
Razorbacks' final offensive play in Carolina's 20-10 
win in the 1995 Carquest Bowl.

v m NORTH CAROLINA HISTORY BOOK • CHARLIE "CHOO-CHOO" JUSTICE 




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 four 
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. 1 college football team. The Tar 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 state. 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 book, 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 Asheville'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- 
studded Bainbridge Navy Squad. After two years 
of romping for Bainbridge against opponents across 
the country, he was a target for pro offers 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 Snavely — "I 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 of 18, 40, 
and 56 yards. He 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 just like 
a choo choo train,") 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 devastat- 
ing rusher, a good passer, and a fake artist who 



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 Snavely system called for a spinning fullback, 
fakes and counter fakes, fullback pass plays and 
reverses. It was a dashing brand of football made 
more exciting by players' ability and maturity to 
accept Snavely's often complicated 
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 21-14 tri- 
umph, 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 
company 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 quar- 
terback Jason Stanicek broke the 
mark in 1994. Justice, graciously, 
was on hand to congratulate Stanicek. 

Justice seemed to peak when 
the traditional games were being 
played. He led the Tar Heels to four 
straight wins over Duke. He was an 
All-America mention as a freshman 
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 good 
reason. The All-Stars walloped the 
Philadelphia Eagles, led by Steve 



Van Buren, 17-7. Justice gained 133 yards individu- 
ally, 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 dedi- 
cated in 2004.

J& NORTH CAROLINA HISTORY BOOK • HONORED JERSEYS 



Twenty-six former University of North Carolina 
football players have been honored in a special 
fashion as their names and jersey numbers have 
been placed on the facade of Kenan Stadium's 
upper deck. The men honored include five who have 
already had their jersey numbers retired, Carolina's 
consensus first-team All-Americas and any athlete 
who was named Atlantic Coast Conference Player of 
the Year. Consensus All-Americas are those players 
who made the majority of the first-team selections in 
any given year. In 2003, the Athletics Council and 
Athletic Director Dick Baddour voted to also honor 
five first-team Associated Press All-Americas and 
two players who were among the ACC's greatest 50 
football players.

whose number has been retired. Weiner won All- 
America honors in 1948 and 1949 and was the 
nation's leading receiver as a senior. He teamed with 
the legendary Charlie Justice to form perhaps the 
most potent offensive duo in school history. Voted 
the top lineman in the Senior Bowl, Weiner is a 
member of the National Football Hall of Fame. He is 
still ninth in UNC receptions with 106. 

DANNY TALBOTT "10

North Carolina's Sports Hall of Fame. A guard and 
linebacker at 5-11, 185 pounds. Barclay was a stand- 
out for three seasons under coaches Chuck Collins 
and Carl Suavely. A tremendous blocker and fero- 
cious tackier, he was captain of the 1934 team that 
went 7-1-1 . Barclay later served as UNC's head 
coach from 1953 until 1955. 

ANDY BERSHAK *59 

A great two-way end from 1935 to 1937 who was 
a consensus All-America in 1937. His number also

stone of the offensive front on 
the 1972 team, which went 
11-1. Rusnak was a two- 
time All-Atlantic Coast 
Conference choice on 
teams which combined for

from 1973 to 1976 who 
was the ACC Player of the 
Year as both a junior and 
senior. Voight is second in 
Carolina history in rushing 
with 3,971 yards and third 
in scoring with 254 points. 
He had three 1 ,000-yard 
seasons and twice was the

1 10 points and ran for 
1,407 yards, including 
261 in his final game —a 
dramatic 39-38 shootout 
with Duke. 

DEE HARDIS ON "71 

A defensive tackle from 
1974 to 1977 and a con- 
sensus All-America as 
a senior. Hardison was 

the star of one of Carolina's greatest defenses in 
his final year. He dominated the line of scrimmage 
all season long as the Tar Heels led the nation in 
scoring defense in 1977, giving up just 7.4 points a 
game. Carolina also topped the ACC in total, rush- 
ing and pass defense that year. No team would lead 
the league in all four again until Florida State in its 
1993 national championship season. 

LAWRENCE TAYLOR " 98 

An outside linebacker from 1977 to 1980 who is 
regarded as the greatest player of all time at that

championship. 

WILLIAM FULLER "95 

A defensive lineman from 1980 to 1983 who was 
a consensus All-America as a senior. Also honored 
as a first-team All-America as a junior, he is one of 
only six Tar Heel players to be named first-team All- 
America twice. Fuller, who utilized his tremendous 
quickness to slice through offensive lines, had 22 
tackles for losses in both 1981 and 1983. He is one 
of only three defensive linemen ever to make the 
AU-ACC team three times. 

ETHAN HO RTON "12 

The Associated Press ACC Player of the Year as a 
senior. Horton rushed for 1 .247 yards in 1984 after 
a 1,107-yard performance in 1983. He was named

career. He anchored a defense that was second in the 
country in total yards in each of his final two sea- 
sons. Carolina posted a 21-3 record in that span and 
had consecutive Top 10 finishes in the polls. Ellis is 
one of only four players in Carolina football history 
to be named first-team All-ACC three times. He was 
voted by his teammates as a team captain and the 
best overall senior. He was the eighth selection in 
the first round of the 1998 NFL Draft by the Dallas 
Cowboys. 

BRIAN SIMMONS "41 

An outside linebacker from 1994 to 1947, Simmons 
was a major contributor in Carolina's rise to the 
Top 10 in his final two seasons. A first-round draft 
selection of the Cincinnati Bengals in '47. Simmons 
had 317 tackles over his last three seasons. He was 
named first-team All-America as a senior by the

All-America honors in three different seasons. Bly 
became the first freshman defensive player in col- 
lege football history to earn consensus first-team 
All-America honors in 1446. When he repeated con- 
sensus honors in 1497, he became the first two-time 
consensus All-America in UNC football history. In

team All-America in 1996 by the Associated Press, 
The Sporting News, the Football Writers and the 
Walter Camp Foundation. In 1997. Bly added five 
more interceptions and was named All-America by

1 ,000 yards in four consecutive seasons. 



JULIUS PEPPERS, "49 



A unanimous All-America selection in 2001 . 
Peppers won the 200 1 Lombardi Award as the 
nation's top lineman. He also won the Chuck 
Bednarik Award as the nation's top overall defensive 
player, earned All-America honors in 2000 and was 
a two-time first-team All-ACC selection. Peppers 
ranks second at UNC and sixth in the ACC in career 
sacks, despite playing just three seasons. He led the 
nation with 15 sacks as a junior. One of the top two- 
sport athletes in ACC history. Peppers was a forward 
on UNC's basketball team where he helped the Tar 
Heels advance to the 2000 Final Four and earn a 
share of the 2001 ACC regular-season title. 

KELVIN BRYANT, "44 



A three-time first-team All-ACC tailback. Bryant 
ranks fourth at UNC with 3,267 rushing yards. He 
had three consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons 
from 1980-82. Despite injuries, he had 1.015 yards 
in seven games in 1981. He rushed for more than 
100 yards in a game on 19 occasions and scored 
six touchdowns in a game against East Carolina 
in 1981. Bryant holds the NCAA record for most 
touchdowns scored in two and three consecutive 
games ( 1 1 and 15. respectively). He played eight 
years of professional football. 

HARRIS BARTON, "67 



Barton was a four-year starter for the Tar Heels, first 
at center and then at tackle. With so- many teams 
playing even-man front defenses. Barton was moved 
to tackle in 1984 to take better advantage of his skills. 
He excelled at left tackle, the key blocking spot in 
the Carolina passing game. As a senior, he led an 
offensive line which helped the Tar Heels rank first in 
the Atlantic Coast Conference and sixth nationally in 
total offense. An excellent student, he was chosen for 
a post-graduate scholarship by the National Football 
Foundation and was a first-round selection in the 
NFL draft. 



CAROLINA'S ACC TOP 50 PLAYERS 

In 2002, the Atlantic Coast Conference celebrated its 

50th Anniversary and named the 50 greatest football 

players that have played in the conference. Carolina 

had eight players among that list, including: 



Dre' Bly 

Kelvin Bryant 
William Fuller 

Amos Lawrence 
Don McCauley 
Julius Peppers 

Lawrence Taylor 
Mike Voight 




BRIAN BLADOS, "60 

When two Carolina tailbacks ran for over 1 ,000 yards 
in 1983, much of that 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 90 of 100 ballots in voting for 
the All-Atlantic Coast Conference team. He was a 
first round choice by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 
NFL draft. 

IRV HOLDASH, "25 

While Carolina's football fortunes slipped in the 
years immediately following the Charlie Justice Era. 
Holdash still received national attention for his 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 1977 was NCAA freshman 
rushing record at the time. Lawrence was named the 
co-MVP in the 1979 Gator Bowl and was the MVP 
of the 1480 Bluebonnet Bowl. 

PAUL SEVERIN, "87 



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.

1947 Sugar Bowl 

New Orleans, La. 

Georgia 20, Carolina 10 

January 1, 1947 




The 1947 Sugar Bowl, which 
matched Carolina against 
■ Georgia, is one of the most 
famous Tar Heel games of the 
Charlie "Choo Choo" Justice 
, years and produced one of the 
^ most controversial plays in howl 
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 Tar 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 Ranch. 

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 earned 18 times for 37 yards

advancing 



The Tar Heels returned to the 
Sugar Bowl in 1949 and were 
defeated 14-6 by the University 
ol Oklahoma, representing the 
Big Seven Conference. A record 
crowd ni 85,000 turned out to see- 
the Charlie Justice-led Tar Heels 
battle Bud Wilkinson's Sooners. 
Carolina threatened early, 
via a Justice to Art Weiner 23-yard pass 
play to the OU 15. Justice's next pass, however, 
was intercepted by linebacker Myrle Greathouse 
who rumbled 59 yards to the Carolina 13. Sooners' 
quarterback Jack Mitchell scored the first points of 
the day on a two-yard run. 

The Heels capitalized on an OU fumble later in 
the first quarter and Justice marched the team down 
to the two, from where Hosea Rodgers scored. The 
conversion was wide right. 

Carolina advanced to the OU eight late in the first 
half, but could not score. 

The Sooners regained the lead for good in the 
third quarter. Quarterback Darrell Royal connected 
for 37 yards with Frankie Anderson and two plays 
later, Lindell Pearson ran it in from eight yards out. 

Justice was brilliant, rushing for 84 yards and 
passing for another 57.

1963 Gator Bowl 

Jacksonville, Fla. 

Carolina 35, Air Force 

December 28, 1963 




It had been 13 years since 
Charlie Justice had led Carolina 
to the 1950 Cotton Bowl, so 
when the Tar Heels got a chance 
to play in the 1963 Gator Bowl, 
they made the most of it. The 
Tar Heels walloped the Air 
Force, 35-0. 

Ken Willard was the hero 
of the day. He ran for 94 yards on 18 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 
to the Academy's 14, and piled up 370 yards in total 
offense compared to 260 for the Falcons. 

Gary Black completed all six of his passes for 71 
yards and one touchdown and he rushed for another 
score. Junior Edge was good on five of his nine 
throws for 42 yards. 

Carolina finished the season 9-2, its best record in 
Hickey's eight years at the helm.

The Tar Heels exploded for 
! 26 second quarter points but 
couldn't hold off Arizona State 
in the final two quarters as the 
Sun Devils rallied for an exciting 
\ 48-26 victory before 52,126 fans 
at Grant Field. 

Carolina spotted unbeaten 
ASU 14 points on a pair of 
touchdowns runs, from eight and 33 yards, by Bob 
Thomas. 

Don McCauley got the Tar Heels on the score- 
board with a one-yard plunge set up by a long pass 
from Paul Miller to Ricky Lanier. ASU scored on its 
next series, though, on a 67-yard TD catch by J.D. 
Hill. 

Carolina then scored the final three touchdowns of 
the first half to go into the intermission with a 26-21 
lead. First, Miller passed 37 yards for a score to 
Tony Blanchard. Then McCauley rushed in from 17 
yards out. And finally, the All-America McCauley 
scored again from four yards. 

Arizona State dominated a second half which was 
played in a heavy Atlanta snowstorm and without 
Miller, who left with an injury. 

Monroe Ely scored twice and Thomas reached 
the end zone for the third time in the Sun Devils' 
27-point second half.

1971 Gator Bowl 

Jacksonville, Fla. 

Georgia 7, Carolina 3 

December 31, 1971 



1Q" J For the first time since 1950, 

I the Tar Heels were playing in a 
' bowl game for the second con- 
secutive season. This time, the 
Tar Heels would fall, 7-3, to the 
Georgia Bulldogs. 

The game produced a bowl 
| first — brothers coaching against 
each other. Bill Dooley led the 
Tar Heels and older brother Vince coached the 
Dawgs. 

The game was a defensive struggle with all the 
points coming in the third quarter. 

In the opening half, Carolina had the best chance 
as linebacker Jimmy Webster, voted the Tar Heels' 
MVP this day, blocked a punt out of bounds at the 
Georgia 24. A fumble, though, denied Carolina any 
points. 

A pair of long runs by Lewis Jolley brought the 
Tar Heels down to the Georgia 16 on UNC's first 
possession of the second half. But a procedure pen- 
alty forced the Heels to settle for a 35-yard field goal 
by Ken Craven. 

A 3 1 -yard pass play from Andy Johnson to Roy 
Hunnicutt set up the Georgia touchdown. Jimmy

1972 Sun Bowl 
El Paso, Texas 
Carolina 32, Texas Tech 28 
December 30, 1972 




Carolina capped an 11-1 sea- 
son in the 1972 Sun Bowl by 
defeating Texas Tech, 32-28. 
Quarterback Nick Vidnovic 
brought the Tar Heels from 
behind with a late scoring drive 
which he capped by tossing a 
1 3-yard touchdown pass to wing- 
back Ted Leverenz. 
That play, with a minute to go in the game, gave 
UNC a 30-28 lead. Carolina added two points 
moments later as Ronnie Robinson sacked quarter- 
back Joe Barnes in the end zone. 

The Tar Heels led 9-0 in the second quarter on 
a field goal by Ellis Alexander and touchdown run 
by Dick Oliver. The Red Raiders rallied, however, 
for the next 21 points and a 21-9 lead. Vidnovic hit 
Leverenz for a 62-yard touchdown and Billy Hite 
carried it in from three yards to reestablish a 24-21 
Carolina lead. Tech gained the advantage. 28-24, 
with 7:41 to play in the game. 

Vidnovic completed 14 of 26 passes for 215 yards 
and two touchdowns. Ike Oglesby rushed for 71 
yards and Sammy Johnson added 52. 

The Red Raiders had a touchdown called back in 
the second quarter. All-America guard Donald Rives 
ran a blocked punt back for an apparent score, but 
Tech was (lagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and 
the points were nullified.

December 28, 1974 




Despite mounting 402 yards 
in total offense, the Tar Heels 
dropped a 26-24 decision to 
Mississippi State in a record- 
setting Sun Bowl. 

Terry Vitrano's two-yard 
touchdown with 3:41 remain- 
ing was the game-winner. That 
capped a 16-play, 80-yard drive 
which lasted nearly seven minutes. 

Carolina had taken a 24-2(1 lead with 10:26 to 
play on an Ellis Alexander field goal. 

The Bulldogs totaled a Sun Bowl record 499 yards 
in total offense — 455 of those yards came on the 
ground via the veer offense. Walter Packer rushed 
for 189 yards, Vitrano added 164 and quarterback 
Rockey Felker gained another 69. 

The Tar Heels also got big ground gains from 
Mike Voight and James Betterson. Voight picked 
up 90 yards on 19 carries and Betterson chipped 
in with 84 on 17 rushes. But Voight was stopped a 
yard shy of a first down on Carolina's last offensive 
play of the game. Chris Kupec, who led the nation in 
pass completion percentage, connected with Jimmy 
Jerome for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Playing without an injured 
Mike Voight, the Atlantic Coast 
Conference Player of the Year. 
! the Tar Heels managed just 
: five first downs and 108 yards 
Io(al offense in a 21-0 loss to 
Kentucky. 

Voight. who had rushed for 
1 ,407 yards, injured his ankle in 
practice two days before the game when he stepped 
in a hole going out on a pass play. Ironically, Voight 
had caught just four passes the entire season. 

The teams battled to a tie at the half, but Carolina 
thought it had put up points in the first quarter. On 
the Tar Heels' opening drive. Matt Kupec hit split 
end Walker Lee with a 50-yard touchdown pass, but 
officials ruled the Tar Heels offside and the play 
came back. 

Early in the third quarter, Kentucky defensive end 
Bud Diehl knocked the ball from Rupee's grasp and 
the "Cats recovered at the UNC 21 . That set up the 
first of three rushing touchdowns by fullback Rod 
Stewart. 

Stewart, who finished with 104 yards and the 
game's MVP trophy, added fourth quarter scores 
from 13 and three yards. 

Subbing for Voight. freshman Doug Paschal led 
the Tar Heels with 41 yards rushing.

field goal attempts. Michigan did score first fol- 
lowing a turnover and added a 53-yard touchdown 
reception by Anthony Carter to move ahead 9-0.

1981 Gator Bowl 

Jacksonville, Fla. 

Carolina 31, Arkansas 27 

December 28, 1981 




Kelvin Bryant rushed for I4S 
yards and Ethan Morton added 
144 to lead the Tar Heels to a 
31-27 victory over Arkansas in 
4 the Gator Bowl. 

Bryant and Horton shared 
Most Valuable Player honors, 
I but it was a key defensive stop 
by seldom-used freshman Ronnie 
Snipes which saved the night for 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 had played just two 
previous downs in the contest, sacked 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. 

UNC quarterback Rod Elkins scored on a one- 
yard sneak on the Tar Heels' next drive. He was set 
up by a 21 -yard run by Horton and a 13-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 Razorbacks 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.

utes into the third quarter with Texas leading 10-3 
and with the ball, third-and-goal at the Carolina one. 
Two times. Texas fullback Ervin Davis tried to find 
the end zone, but twice he was hurled back. First, it 
was Wilcher who made the hit and then on 4th-and- 
goal. Greg Poole made the stop which changed the 
game. 

The Christmas Day affair was played with inter- 
mittent snow flumes and a wind-chill reading that 
hovered around 12 degrees.

1986 Aloha Bowl 

Honolulu, Hawaii 

Arizona 30, Carolina 21 

December 27, 1986 




Arizona converted four North 
m Carolina fumbles into 20 points 
m and then held off a furious Tar 
I ■ Heel rally in the fourth quarter to 

I I 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 of 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 yards on only seven carries. Maye 
completed 17 of 34 passes for 171 yards; he hooked 
up with Eric Stan' a game-high seven times for 53 
yards.

1993 Peach Bowl 
Atlanta, Ga. 
Carolina 21, Mississippi State 17 
January 2, 1993 




Defensive MVP Bracey 
Walker blocked consecutive 
third-quarter punts, returning one 
of them for the tying touchdown, 
and forced a fourth quarter inter- 
ception which Cliff Baskerville 
returned 44 yards for a touch- 
down to lead Carolina to a 21-17 
Peach Bowl win over Mississippi 
State. 

Walker's heroics capped a fierce second-half 
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. 

Carolina regrouped at halftime, however, and cut 
the lead to 14-7 just six plays into the third quarter. 
Mike Thomas connected with Bueky Brooks for a 
53-yard completion on the fourth play of the half 
and Natrone Means scored from a yard out two 
snaps later. 

Means led the Tar Heel offense with 128 yards 
rushing and was named the game's Offensive MVP. 
Later in the third quarter. Walker blocked a punt 
but Carolina's field goal try was unsuccessful. On 
the next series UNC again forced the Bulldogs to 
punt and this time Walker blocked the kick, picked 
up the loose ball and raced 24 yards untouched for 
the tying score. 

Early in the final quarter Walker forced a midair 
loose ball with a jarring hit and Baskerville plucked 
the ball out of the air and sprinted 44 yards down the 
left sideline for what proved to be the winning score.

William Henderson plunged in from a yard out for 
the lead. 

The Crimson Tide went up 10-7 Burgdorf scored 
from 33 yards out on a quarterback draw. 

With 1 :44 left before intermission. Stanicek led 
what would be the final Tar Heel scoring drive. He 
hit Holliday with passes of 12 and nine yards and 
Curtis Johnson ran twice for 20 yards before the 
drive stalled and Tripp Pignetti hit a 23-yard field 
goal to tie the game at 10. 

The Alabama defense was the key to the game, 
holding UNC to a season-low 42 net yards rushing

yards and four first downs in the second half.

December 30, 1995 



Leon Johnson rushed for a 
Carolina bowl record 195 yards 
and Mike Thomas threw for two 
scores as the Tar Heels knocked 
off Arkansas, 20- 111. in the 
Carquest Bowl. 

Johnson's 195-yard effort 
topped the previous high of 148 
yards by Kelvin Bryant, also 
against Arkansas, in the 1981 Gator Bowl. Johnson 
had just 23 yards on eight carries in the first half, but 
exploded for 172 yards in the second half. 

All-America tackle Marcus Jones capped his 
career with four tackles for losses, including a quar- 
terback sack on Arkansas' last play from scrimmage 
- his final collegiate play. 

Trailing by a touchdown the Tar Heels quickly 
moved into position to tie the game. On third-and- 
long quarterback Mike Thomas rolled right, threw 
back across the field to Ashford. who sprinted 
around the left flank into the end zone. 

The Razorbacks managed to take a 10-7 lead 
in the third quarter on a 26-yard field goal by 
Latourette. Two series later Carolina went into 
the lead for good. On third-and-eight from the 28, 
Thomas ran the option around the right corner, 
turned upfield and then pitched the ball to Johnson, 
who was trailing the play perfectly. Johnson ran 
untouched for a 28-yard, go-ahead score.

1998 Gator Bowl 

Jacksonville, Fla. 

Carolina 42, Virginia Tech 3 

January 1, 1998 

Chris Keldorf threw for 

I 290 yards and three scores and 
Carolina's defense and special 
■\ teams added touchdowns as the 
Tar Heels pounded Virginia 
Tech, 42-3, in the Toyota Gator 
Bowl. 

The victory, UNC's most lop- 
sided in a bowl game, secured a 
No. 4 final ranking in the coaches' poll for the 11-1 
Tar Heels. The game was Carl Torbush's first as 
Carolina's head coach. Torbush, UNC's defensive 
coordinator the past 10 years, was elevated to head 
coach on December 8th after Mack Brown accepted 
the same position at the University of Texas. 
Keldorf completed 17 of 28 passes, includ- 
ing touchdown throws of 62 and 14 yards to wide 
receiver Octavus Barnes and four yards to fullback 
Jamie Carrick. 

Carolina amassed 427 total yards and held the 
Hokies to just 185 yards. Leading 3-0, Keldorf hit 
Barnes with a 62-yard bomb down the left sideline 
for a 10-0 lead. Later in the first quarter, Carolina 
forced Virginia Tech to punt deep in Hokie terri- 
tory. Quinton Savage blocked the punt and Die' Bly 
scooped it up at the 6-yard line and scored for a 16-0 
UNC advantage. 

One minute and 10 seconds after Bly's touch- 
down. Ellis fell on a loose ball in the Tech end zone 
for another touchdown. Carolina scored 16 first- 
quarter points in the entire regular season, but scored 
16 in the first quarter of the Gator Bowl and six 
more just seven seconds into the second quarter. 

The 42 points were the most in UNC postseason 
history and the three touchdown passes by Keldorf 
set a UNC bowl game record.

'■ tions and the Tar Heel defense 
; did not allow a TD in the last 59 
minutes as Carolina defeated San 
Diego State, 20-13.

play of the opening quarter. He rushed for 93 yards 
on 10 carries and accounted for 96 of Carolina's 196 
total offense yards, despite playing just four series.

per hour. Passing was almost impossible. In fact. 
Carolina won the game despite completing just four 
passes for 33 yards. 

Schmitz averaged 44.0 yards on five punts and 
pinned the Aztecs inside their own 1 1 -yard line four 
times. Late in the second quarter, Schmitz unloaded 
a 66-yard punt into the wind.

minute of the game before the Tar Heels scored 20 
unanswered points to close the first half. After two 
second-half field goals cut it to 20-13, the Aztecs 
had one final chance to tie the game. With just over 
a minute left, Dre' Bly broke up a pass in the end 
zone. On the following play. Brandon Spoon tipped 
Brian Russell's pass in the air and the ball was inter- 
cepted at the goal line by Keith Newman with 59

2004 Continental Tire Bowl 

Charlotte, IM.C. 

Boston College 37, Carolina 24 

December 30, 2004 

Kicker Ryan Ohliger scored 
m a 2 1 -yard Take field goal run 
to seal Boston College's 37-24 
.ictory over North Carolina in 
the Continental Tire Bowl. 
Clinging to a 27-24 lead 
! over 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 handofl 
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.

2008 Meineke Car Care Bowl 

Charlotte, M.C. 

West Virginia 31, Carolina 30 

December 30, 2004 




Pat White threw for 332 
yards, including a 20-yard touch- 
down pass to Alric Arnett mid- 
way through the fourth quarter 
to send West Virginia to a 31-30 
win over North Carolina in the 
Meineke Car Care Bowl. 

The senior quarterback was 
voted MVP, helping West Virginia (9-4) overcome 
Hakeem Nicks' big day for North Carolina. Nicks 
caught eight passes for 217 yards and three touch- 
downs for the Tar Heels (8-5), but T.J. Yates was 
intercepted by Pat La/ear with under 2 minutes lelt 
to end Butch Davis' hopes of a bowl win in his sec- 
ond year at North Carolina. 

White completed 26 of 32 passes and threw one 
interception. The NCAA's all-time leading rushing 
quarterback added 55 more yards on the ground to 
finish with 4.4S0. 

After J.T. Thomas recovered Shaun Draughn's 
fumble at the West Virginia 30, White threw a 
41 -yard pass over the middle to Jock Sanders, picked 
up nine yards on a running play and then rilled a 
pass between two defenders to Arnett for the go- 
ahead touchdown with 7:14 left. 

Yates couldn't find the dynamic Nicks on the Tar 
Heels' final drive, eventually throwing his first inter- 
ception of the game. 

Nicks already set three school receiving records 
and shattered his career-high in yards receiving - 
with 10:37 left in the second quarter. It was part of 
a dizzying offensive display by both teams that pro- 
duced six touchdowns in the game's first 20 minutes. 

Nicks' 25-yard TD catch from Yates early in 
the second quarter was his 178th career reception 
- another school record - and gave North Carolina 
a 23-21 lead. The action thrilled a sellout crowd at 
Bank of America Stadium that included thousands of 
fans from both schools.
