2010 PREVIEW - NOTEBOOK 



.^fl 



2010 Preview 

Following back-toback eight 
win seasons, North Carolina 
has higher goals in 2010 as it 
welcomes back 39 lettermen and 
an ACC-high 21 starters. The 
Tar Heels return 1 starters on 
offense, nine starters on defense 
and both their place-kicker and 
punter. 

Carolina has made consecu- 
tive bowl trips for the first time 
since the late 1 990s and will look 
to continue that streak when they 
start the season vs. LSU in the 
Chick-fil-A Kickoff in Atlanta. 

"We must become a more bal- 
anced football team," says Butch 
Davis, who heads into his fourth 
season as UNC's head coach. 
"We can not rely solely on our 
defense to win games. We have 
an experienced team on both 
sides of the ball and we have 
a great opportunity this year to 
continue to build the program. 
We are excited about playing 
LSU in the season opener and our 
schedule is extremely challeng- 
ing." 

The best news this offseason came in January 
when six Carolina juniors who were considering 
entering the NFL Draft decided to return for their 
senior season. Those players included defensive 
standouts Marvin Austin, Kendric Burney, Bruce 
Carter, Quan Sturdivant and Deunta Williams. 
Add in second-team All-America defensive end 
Robert Quinn and the Tar Heels hope to repeat as 
the ACC's best defense. They finished sixth in the 
nation last year, allowing just 269 yards per game. 
However, Carolina must replace defensive tackle 
Cam Thomas and defensive end E.J. Wilson, both 
of whom were selected in the 2010 NFL Draft. Ju- 
niors Tydreke Powell (DT) and Quinton Copies (DE) 
are expected to step into those positions, but will 
face competition from a host of players, including 
junior DE Michael McAdoo, who had four sacks 
and an interception in the Spring Game. 

Despite losing just one starter on offense, 
Carolina will look to reconfigure its offense live. 
Jonathan Cooper, who started nine games last 
year at guard, will move to center, opening a spot 
for Travis Bond at guard. Bond impressed the 
coaching staff last year in his 
first career start vs. Pittsburgh 
in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. 
Senior Alan Pelc, a 1 3-game 
starter a year ago, is an all- 
conference candidate at the 
other guard position. Mike 
Ingersoll started 1 2 games in 
2009 and will return at right 
tackle. Junior Carl Gaskins 
and freshman James Hurst 
will compete for the left tackle 
spot. Gaskins was expected 
to challenge for a starting role 
last year before tearing his ACL 
in preseason practice. Hurst 
enrolled at Carolina in January 
after a standout high school 
career. 

Three-year starter T.J. Yates 








_jd! *&>» 



North Carolina led the ACC and ranked No. 6 in the country in total defense a year ago. 

Nine starters, including defensive end Robert Quinn (42) and linebackers Bruce Carter (54) 

and Kevin Reddick (48) return in 2010. 



returns as the starting quarterback, along with 
tailbacks Shaun Draughn (nine starts) and Ryan 
Houston (four starts). Highly touted redshirt fresh- 
man Bryn Renner opens the season as the No. 2 
quarterback. 

The Tar Heels return 1 5 of the 1 6 players who 
caught at least one pass last year, including lead- 
ing receiver Greg Little (62 catches for 724 yards, 
5 TDs). Sophomores Erik Highsmith and Jheranie 
Boyd should only improve after earning playing 
time as true freshmen. 

2010 Schedule

Duke (Nov. 27). 

Carolina plays an ACC-high 
eight teams that finished 2009 
with nine or more wins and eight 
of the Tar Heels' 1 2 opponents 
played in a bowl game last 
season. Based on opponents' 
combined winning percentage, 
Carolina (97-60; .618) will 
face the league's most difficult 
schedule in 2010, ahead of 
Virginia Tech (95-59; .61 7), 
Miami (92-61, .601 ), NC State 
(91-64; .587), Georgia Tech (87- 
64; .576), Florida State (86-66; 
.566), Virginia (82-73; .529), 
Maryland (79-72; .523), Wake 
Forest (77-76; .503), Clemson 
(72-79; .477) and Boston Col- 
lege (68-80; .460). 

Coaching Staff Continuity 

For the first time since Carl 
Torbush's first two years as UNC's 
head coach (1998-99), Caro- 
lina's coaching staff is completely 
intact in back-toback seasons. 
All nine assistants, plus strength 
and conditioning coordinator Jeff 
Connors, will return for the 2010 season. 

"It's important to have continuity on your staff to 
build relationships not only with the current players 
but with the high school coaches and future re- 
cruits," said Davis. "I'm pleased to have our entire 
staff intact this year."

will be built in Kenan Stadium's east end zone to 
house the academic support center for student-ath- 
letes, the Carolina Leadership Academy, Olympic 
sports' strength and conditioning center, visiting 
locker room, club seats and individual suites. 

Construction began immediately on the project 
that is expected to take roughly 1 5 months to 
complete in time for the start of the 201 1 football 
season. The Center for Excellence will replace the 
Kenan Fieldhouse, which was built in 1927. 

Sales of club seats and individual suites began 
in October 2009. Those sales will provide ap- 
proximately 50 percent of the funding of the $70 
million project. Private donations will fund the rest 
of the project. The athletic department will not use 
state funds. 

"The Carolina Student-Athlete Center for Excel- 
lence will help us provide exceptional academic 
support to our nearly 800 student-athletes," says 
Director of Athletics Dick Baddour. "It also cre- 
ates a new source of revenue that over the next 
30 years will help us maintain the broad-based, 
28-sport program we have long enjoyed." 

Potential NFL Draftees Return For Senior Season 

Six North Carolina juniors explored the possi- 
bility of going pro after the bowl game last season, 
but all six elected to return for the 201 season, 
including DT Marvin Austin, LB Bruce Carter, LB 
Quan Sturdivant, CB Kendric Burney, S Deunta 
Williams and WR Greg Little. Sturdivant, Burney 
and Williams were 2009 first-team All-ACC selec- 
tions and Austin and Carter were second-team 
picks. Little became just the fifth player in UNC 
history to post more than 60 receptions. 

Austin, Carter and Sturdivant all have been 
listed as the No. 1 NFL draft prospects at their 
respective positions by ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. In 
its rankings of 201 1 NFL prospects, CollegeFoot- 
ballNews.com has Austin listed as the No. 1 
defensive tackle, Sturdivant as the No. 2 inside 
linebacker, Carter as the No. 1 outside linebacker, 
Williams as the No. 1 free safety, Burney as the 



In Butch Davis' three seasons at UNC, the Tar 
Heels have won 20 games (4-8 in 2007, 8-5 in 
2008, 8-5 in 2009), which is one more than they 
won in the five years (2002-06) prior to his arrival 
Among the evidence that Carolina football has 
improved its profile since his arrival: 

• Season ticket sales have increased 

• Carolina played its first Thursday Night FSPN 
football game in 2009 

• Carolina's 201 Spring Game was broadcast 
nationally on FSPN and drew a school-record 
29,500. 

• Carolina has produced first-round NFL Draft 
picks (Kentwan Balmer by the San Francisco 49ers 
in 2008 and Hakeem Nicks by the New York Gi- 
ants in 2009) under Davis. 

• Carolina advanced to bark to-back bowl 
games for the first time since going to seven 
straight from 1992-98. 

• Carolina will play in the prestigious Chick- 
fil-A Kickoff Game vs. LSU in the 2010 season 
opener 

• Three of Davis' four UNC recruiting classes 
have been ranked in the Top 25 by a majority of 
recruiting analysts. 

The Mighty Quinn 



Junior defensive end Robert Quinn was diag- 
nosed with a brain tumor during his senior season 
at Ft. Dorchester High School (S.C.). Fortunately, 
his tumor was benign, but still required emergency 
surgery. He was told by a hospital nurse that he 
would never play football again. Quinn not only 
recovered, but he came back earlier that expected 
and won a third straight heavyweight wrestling 
state high school championship. 

At the same time of his recruitment, North Caro- 
lina head coach Butch Davis had been dealing 
with his own cancer treatments (non-Hodgskin's 
lymphoma) and promised Robert a scholarship 
would be waiting at Carolina no matter what hap- 
pened. On signing day in 2007, Quinn signed 
with the Tar Heels and started 1 2 games as a 
freshman. As a sophomore last season, he led the 
ACC in tackles for losses and was second in sacks 
and forced fumbles. He was named first team 
All-ACC and was a second-team All-America by 
CBSsports com. 

Bruce Carter in the Weight Room 

Senior linebacker Bruce Carter is one of the 
most talented players on the field, but has also 
proved himself in the weight room. In the most 
recent testing, Carter had the following measur 
ables: Bench Press 440; Power Clean 374 (UNC 
linebacker record); Back Squat 605; Veritcal Jump 
40.5 (UNC linebacker record); Broad Jump 10.6 
(Broad Jump); 40-Yard Dash (4.39); 20- Yard 
Shuttle (4. 19). 

Carter finished third on the team last year with 
65 tackles, including 7.5 tackles for loss and 2.0 
sacks. He was selected second-team All-ACC. 

This summer, Carter was named by ESPN.com 
as the nation's top "workout warrior".

2010 PREVIEW - NOTE 



Position-By-Position Previews 

Offensive Line: Injuries and attrition last season 
occasionally forced the Tar Heels to play with three 
freshmen on the offensive line, including nine- 
game starter Jonathan Cooper, tackle Brennan 
Williams and guard Travis Bond. Those three 
players gained a tremendous amount of experi- 
ence and all should battle for a starting spot this 
year along with returnees Mike Ingersoll (1 2 starts) 
and Carl Gaskins at tackle and Alan Pelc (1 3 
starts) and Greg Elleby at guard. Redshirt fresh- 
man David Collins, who had a foot injury last year, 
will compete for playing time along with January 
enrollees James Hurst and T.J. Leifheit. Leifheit 
missing most of the spring after undergoing ankle 
surgery. Pelc missed all of spring practice while 
recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, but is 
healthy entering fall camp. Gaskins tore his ACL 
last fall, but should be completely healthy heading 
into fall camp. 

Returnees: OG Travis Bond, OG David Collins, 
OG/C Jonathan Cooper, OG Greg Elleby, OT 
Carl Gaskins, C Cam Holland, OT Mike Ingersoll, 
OG Alan Pelc; OT Brennan Williams - (returning 
starters in italic) 

Losses: LT Kyle Jolly, C Lowell Dyer 

Newcomers: OL Nick Appel, OL 
Russell Bodine, OT James Hurst, OT T.J 
Leifheit 




Sure-handed senior tight end Zack Pianalto had 33 
receptions last season in just nine games. 



♦ ♦♦♦♦ 

Wide Receivers: Every Carolina 
receiver or tight end who caught at least 
one pass returns in 2010, including 
versatile performer Greg Little (1,1 12 
all-purpose yards), speedy Jheranie 
Boyd (four TDs) and reliable Erik High- 
smith (37 receptions). Little, a senior 
from Durham, N.C., became just the 
fifth player in UNC history to post 60 
or more receptions in a single season. 
Boyd also proved to be a valuable 
weapon as a runner averaging 10.8 
yards on 20 attempts. Highsmith's 37 
receptions were just one reception shy of 
Hakeem Nicks' single-season freshman 
record of 38. Behind that trio, Carolina 
returns several promising players includ- 
ing Dwight Jones, Todd Harrelson and 
Joshua Adams. Adams started the first 
two games last season before a shoulder 
injury ended his season. He received a 
medical redshirt and enters 2010 with 
four years of eligibility remaining.

Tight Ends/H-Backs: North Carolina 
is 1 3-5 over the last two seasons when 
Zack Pianalto plays. He is a favorite 
target for T.J. Yates, especially on third 
down, and last season, he set the UNC 
single-season record for receptions (33)

by a tight end despite missing four games with 
an foot injury. He enters the spring healthy and 
should contend for all-conference honors in 2010. 
NFL draft analysts have him among the top five 
tight ends in the country. Joining Pianalto at tight 
end is senior Ed Barham, who is noted for his 
blocking ability, but caught six passes a year ago, 
including a touchdown vs. Florida State. After 
sitting out last season as a transfer from Mississippi 
State, Nelson Hurst will be eligible this year. At the 
h-back position, senior Ryan Taylor, who missed 
all of last year with a knee injury, returns for his 
fifth year. Taylor is a tough player who also will 
improve Carolina's special teams coverage. Junior 
Christian Wilson saw action in seven games last 
season and recorded five catches for 30 yards. 
January enrollee Sean Fitzpatrick gives the Tar 
Heels much needed depth.

Running Backs/Quarterbacks: Shaun 
Draughn started nine games last season 
until a shoulder blade injury sidelined 
him for the final four games. His injury 
allowed Ryan Houston to showcase his 
ability as the full-time starting tailback. 
Draughn and Houston combined for 1 ,280 
yards on 31 5 carries, an average of 98.5 
yards per game. Houston had his most 
productive game against Duke, carrying 
37 times for 1 64 yards. Senior Anthony 
Elzy is a versatile player and is a receiving 
threat at either fullback or tailback. Devon 
Ramsay played his way into the starting 
fullback role last year and continues to 
improve. Johnny White was a standout 
on special teams with 1 6 tackles and led 
the team in kickoff returns. A.J. Blue, a 
versatile running back who can also play 
quarterback, tore knee ligaments in last 
year's game vs. Georgia Southern and 
missed spring practice. He will be limited 
in the fall as he continues to recover. 

At quarterback, T.J. Yates enters the 
spring as a three-year starter. Yates is 
second in the UNC record book in career 
passing yards, attempts and comple- 
tions. Highly touted redshirt freshman 
Bryn Renner enters the spring No. 2 on 
the depth chart. Sophomore signal caller 
Braden Hanson played in three games last 
year.

2010 PREVIEW - NOTEBOOK 




Greg Little hauled in 62 receptions last year and should contend for all-conference honors in 2010. 



Defensive Line: Carolina's only two losses on 
the starting defense came along the defensive line 
with the graduation of tackle Cam Thomas and 
end E.J. Wilson. Fortunately, the Tar Heels have 
two standout defensive linemen returning, includ- 
ing ACC Defensive Player of the Year candidates 
Robert Quinn at end and Marvin Austin at tackle. 
Quinn earned first-team All-ACC honors after 
leading the ACC in tackles for losses and finish- 
ing second in sacks. Austin was a second-team 
honoree after posting 42 tackles and four sacks. 
They will be joined on the line by juniors Tydreke 
Powell at tackle and Quinton Copies at end. Pow- 
ell is best remembered for stripping the ball from 
Virginia Tech's Ryan Williams to set up Carolina's 
game-winning field goal. Copies was superb as a 
pass rush specialist with five sacks. Junior Michael 
McAdoo and sophomore Donte Paige-Moss pro- 
vide exceptional depth at end, while junior Jordan 
Nix and redshirt freshman Jared McAdoo compete 
for playing time at tackle. Former linebacker Lin- 
wan Euwell moved to defensive end in the spring.

Linebackers: Carolina welcomes back two of 
the nation's top rated linebackers in Bruce Carter 
and Quan Sturdivant for their senior seasons. Add 
in promising sophomore Kevin Reddick and the 
Tar Heels have one of the best starting linebacker 
combinations in the country. Sturdivant played 
both middle and outside linebacker last year and 
led the team with 79 tackles. Carter played on the 
other side of Sturdivant and had 65 tackles. Red- 
dick assumed the starting middle linebacker role 
at the midpoint of the season and responded with 
45 tackles, including 5.5 for losses. Junior Zach 
Brown is one of the fastest Tar Heels on the team 
and has competed in the offseason with the UNC 
track team. He started six games last year and 
had 47 tackles. Several other players are waiting 
in the wings, including juniors Herman Davidson 
and Ebele Okakpu, and sophomores Dion Guy 
and Shane Mularkey.

Defensive Backs: All four starters return in 
2010, including first-team All-ACC performers 
and Thorpe Award nominees Kendric Burney and 
Deunta Williams. Burney and Williams combined 
for 31 4 of Carolina's school-record 508 intercep- 
tion return yards last year. UNC's defensive backs 
picked off 1 7 passes a year ago with each starter 
registering at least one. Williams ranks third at 
UNC with 1 2 career interceptions, while Burney 
has nine. Senior Charles Brown is a talented cover 
man who finished second on the team last year 
with 66 tackles. Senior safety Da'Norris Searcy 
is a hard-hitting, aggressive defender who also 
returned kicks in 2009. He has improved every 
season and could contend for all-conference 
honors. Safety Matt Merletti is returning from an 
ACL injury suffered last preseason and should help 
Carolina's special teams as well. Cornerbacks 
Mywan Jackson and Gene Robinson gained valu- 
able playing experience last year as true freshmen 
and had good spring performances. The Tar Heels 
have several promising young players, including 
redshirt freshmen Curtis Campbell, Josh Hunter 
and Terry Shankle.

♦♦♦♦♦ 

Specialists: Casey Barth led the ACC with 21 
field goals in 2009, tying the single-season school 
record, and earned second-team All-ACC honors. 
Barth made 1 6 field goals in a row at one point 
during the season and made 34 of 35 PATs. He 
enters the season as a candidate for the Lou Groza 
Award, presented annually to the nation's top 
kicker. Punter Grant Schallock returns as the start- 
ing punter, but will face competition from redshirt 
freshman C.J. Feagles. Last season, Schallock 
averaged 40.3 yards, but needs to become more 
consistent. Deep snapper Trevor Stuart returns 
from last year's ACL injury to compete with walk- 
on Mark House for the starting role.

HEAD COACH 



FOURTH SEASON AT UNC 



36TH SEASON OVERALL 



Entering his fourth season at North Carolina, head coach 
Butch Davis has brought energy and enthusiasm back to the Tar 
Heel football program with his ability to motivate, teach and 
recruit at the highest level. A man with a proven record of suc- 
cess and an unyielding commitment to excellence, Davis has a 
clear vision for building a championship program in Chapel Hil! 
based on integrity, character and honor. 

In three seasons at North Carolina, Davis has led the Tar 
Heels to back-to-back bowl games for the first time in more 
than a decade and produced 16 wins over the past two years - 
the most since consecutive double-digit wins in 1996-97. 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. 
1 3, 2006, Davis quickly rejuvenated the fan bas< 
and brought excitement to every Saturday at 
Kenan Stadium. Beginning with his first Caro- 
lina recruiting class in 2007, which many an 
lysts 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. 

Davis, who guided Miami out of 
NCAA probation and into the upper echelon 
of college football in the late 1990s, has like- 




wise turned 
around the UNC 
program. Carolina 
improved from 4-8 in 
2007 to 8-5 in 2008, 
which was the sixth- 
best turnaround in the 
country. A second con- 
secutive eight-win season 
in 2009 gives the Tar Heels 
20 vvins under Davis, which 
is one more than they won in the 
five years (2002-06) prior to his arrival. 

Davis also emphasizes the importance of 
academics. His teams have been recognized by 
the American Football Coaches Association for 
outstanding graduation rates in each of his nine sea- 
sons as a head coach, including six at Miami and three 
at UNC. 

No stranger to success, Davis has coached in 1 3 
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 cham- 
pionship team. He also won two Super Bowls as 
an assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys. An 
excellent motivator and technician, Davis recruited 
or coached a number of players at Miami who were 



selected in the NFL Draft, including an amazing 28 first-round 
picks in six seasons. Since his arrival in Chapel Hill, Davis has 
produced two first-round draft picks in defensive tackle Kent- 
wan Balmer and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks. 

Prior to his arrival in Chapel Hill, Davis served as an ana- 
lyst on the NFL Network for two seasons. There he was able to 
watch and study the latest college football offensive and defen- 
sive 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. 

Carolina fans have certainly responded to his style of foot- 
ball. Just this past spring, Carolina attracted a school-record 
crowd of 29,500 to the Blue-White Spring Game, which was 
broadcast nationally on ESPN. Since 2007, Carolina has sold 
out nearly every home game, increased average attendance by 
more than 15 percent and has sold more than 35,000 season tick- 
ets per season, including a school-record 36,250 in 2008. 

Davis' third Carolina team used a dynamic defense and 
an opportunistic offense to go 8-5 overall, 4-4 in the ACC and 
advance to a second consecutive Meineke Bowl in Char- 
lotte. The Tar Heels' defense led the ACC and ranked 
sixth in the country in yards allowed. Carolina 
hosted its first-ever ESPN Thursday night game 
vs. Florida State and a week later knocked off 
No. 14 Virginia Tech in Blacksburg on Thursday 
night. Carolina also scored impressive wins over 
East Carolina, Connecticut, Duke, Miami and 
Boston College to post a second straight winning 
season. Of the Tar Heels' five losses, three were 
by a combined total of just six points. Carolina 
placed nine players on the All-ACC teams, 
including four first-team selections, 
which was the most since 1997. 

Carolina began to show evi- 
dence of improvement when it 
posted the nation's sixth-best 
turnaround from 2007 (4-8) 
to 2008 (8-5). The Tar 
Heels won games over 
bowl teams Rutgers. 
Miami, Connecticut, 
Notre Dame, Boston 
College and Georgia 
Tech and were in the 
hunt for the 2008 
ACC championship 
until the final week 
of the season. The 
Tar Heels earned 
an invitation to 
the Meineke 
Car Care Bowl 
in Charlotte, 
its first 
postseason 
game since 
2004, and 
sold more 
than 22,000 
tickets 
(10.000 
more than its 
otment) in 
just one week 
of sales. An 
estimated 
40,000 Caro- 
lina fans were 
in attendance.

No stranger to success, Davis has coached 
in 13 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. 

building a program to compete at the highest level for a national 
championship," says Davis, 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 held, but are also accomplished in the classroom, 
the weight room and other areas off the Held. We are climbing the 
mountain." 

Davis' first season in Chapel Hill was highlighted by an impres- 
sive 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 individuals 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. In 2008, 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 assistant coaches, I would not be where I am today." 

Carolina had an ACC-best five players picked in the 2009 NFL Draft, includ- 
ing Nicks, second-round pick Richard Quinn, third-rounder Brandon Tate and 
fifth-round picks Garrett Reynolds and Brooks Foster. Over the last three years, 
the Tar Heels have had nine players drafted and several others have signed as free 
agents, including Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting kicker Connor Barth. 

But statistics and draft choices don't reveal the full story. Davis has hired 
an outstanding staff of assistant coaches, brought in four consecutive 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 
and student-athlete experience and provide a source of revenue for the athletic 
department. The first phase of the Kenan Stadium Master plan was completed in 
time for the 2009 football season. A fifth floor was added to the Kenan Football 
Center, which contains additional space for the day-to-day operations of the 
football program, four gameday gathering areas, a larger video and studio facility 
and a state-of-the-art press conference area. The second floor was completely 
renovated for increased football meeting spaces, including bigger individual 
position meeting rooms and a larger team meeting room. Fourth floor renovations 
included additional office space for football support staff. The first floor players' 
locker room was also completely renovated. 

In May, 2010, UNC's Board of Trustees approved the the Carolina Student- 
Athlete Center for Excellence, a five-story privately financed structure that will be 
built in Kenan Stadium's east end zone to house the academic support center for 
student-athletes, the Carolina Leadership Academy, Olympic sports' strength and

conditioning center, visiting locker room, club seats and individual suites. 

Davis was head coach for six seasons at Miami ( 1995-2000) and led the 
Hurricanes to a 51-20 record, three Big East Conference championships and four 
postseason bowl wins in as many appearances. He took over a Miami program 
faced with NCAA sanctions that restricted the number of scholarships in his first 
three seasons. However, his Hurricane teams finished ranked in the Associated 
Press Top 25 on four occasions, including No. 2 in the 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 Championship by winning seven straight games to close the 
'95 season. The team would have received an invitation to a BCS bowl game, 
however, Miami declined the invitation due to NCAA sanctions previously ap- 
proved by university officials for violations prior to Davis' arrival. 

Davis again led Miami to a share of the Big East title in 1996 and catapulted 
the Hurricanes to a top 20 ranking and their first bowl victory in five years with 
a 31-21 win over Virginia in the Carquest Bowl. The following season he led 
Miami to a 46-23 win over North Carolina State in the 1998 Micron PC Bowl. 

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

Davis also emphasizes the importance of academics, and his Hurricanes 
earned recognition from the American Football Coaches Association for outstand- 
ing 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 Cleveland in 200 1 , 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, includ- 
ing 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 play- 
ers 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 assistant 
with the Dallas Cowboys from 1989-94 and was defensive coordinator in 1993 
and 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 spectacular 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' 52-1 7 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 coordinator a year later, 
the Cowboys set a team record by allowing just 21 touchdowns in 16 regular- 
season games and allowed one offensive touchdown or less in 12 of 16 games. 

Davis was also defensive coordinator during Barry Switzer's first season as 
head coach in 1994 and helped Dallas reach the NFC Championship Game, where 
eventual Super Bowl champion San Francisco denied its bid for a three-peat. Da- 
vis'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 Woodson. 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 Hurricanes 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. Davis' line was a key part of the 
Miami defense that finished second in the nation in both scoring defense (9.7 
points per game) and total defense (242.0 yards per game) in 1988. The 1986 
Hurricanes set a school record with 49 sacks, broke the mark with 50 in 1988 and 
held opposing rushers to fewer than 2.3 yards per carry in 1987 and 1988. 

Davis entered the collegiate coaching ranks on the offensive side of the ball 
as an assistant on Johnson's Oklahoma State University teams from 1979-83. At 
Oklahoma State, Davis coached receivers and tight ends while also serving as 
recruiting coordinator. 

Davis played college football at the University of Arkansas for coach Frank 
Broyles, but his career was cut short due to a knee injury. He earned a bachelor's 
degree in biology and life science in 1974. His coaching career began as a vol- 
unteer assistant in 1973 at Fayetteville High School in Arkansas. He had stints in 
Oklahoma at Pawhuska High School (1974-75) and Sand Springs High School 
(1976-77) as an assistant coach and at Tulsa Rogers High School ( 1978) in his 
first head coaching assignment before joining Johnson's staff at Oklahoma State. 

Paul Hilton (Butch) Davis is a native of Tahlequah. Okla. Davis and his 
wife, Tammy, have a teenage son, Drew. 

The Davis Family is heavily involved in the Chapel Hill and surrounding 
communities. Since moving to Chapel Hill in 2006, the Davis's have pledged 
their time and financial support to many organizations. They include, but are 
not limited to: Night of Champions, Flashes of Hope, Lineberger Cancer Center, 
UNC Children's Hospital, SECU Family House, Athletes in Action, Fellowship 
of Christian Athletes. Habitat for Humanity, Carolina Kids, Multiple Sclerosis, 
Crosby Scholars and Informed Families.

ASSOCIATE HEAD COACH 



DEFENSIVE LINE COACH 



RECRUITI NGCOOR DINATOR 
FOURTH SEASON AT UNC 

John Blake enters his fourth 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. 

Over the past three seasons in Chapel Hill. 
Blake has tutored a number of highly skilled 
defensive linemen, including 2009 first-team 
All-ACC selection Robert Quinn at defensive 
end and second-team pick Marvin Austin at 
defensive tackle. Quinn ( 19 tackles for losses, 
1 1 sacks) and Austin both return in 2010 and are 
considered among the top five talents in the coun- 
try at their respective positions. 

Last season, Blake's defensive line dominated the point of 
attack and Carolina finished sixth in the nation in tackles for 
losses. No. 6 in total defense and No. 10 against the run. De- 
fensive end E.J. Wilson and defensive tackle Cam Thomas were 
selected in the 2010 NFL Draft as Blake continued a history of 
developing professional talent. 

In three seasons at UNC. Blake has sent five defensive line- 
men to the NFL, including 2008 first-round draft pick Kentwan 
Balmer. 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 defen- 
sive line coaches at any level," said ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. 

In addition to his abilities as a defensive line coach, Blake is 
considered by many observers as the nation's top recruiter. In 
three of the last four years, at least one recruiting publication has 
named Blake the nation's top recruiter. Three different Sport- 
ing 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 
Quarterly in 2007. 

Blake was responsible for the recruitment of Austin, the 
nation's No. 1 high school defensive player in 2007, and Caro- 
lina's signing classes have ranked among the best in the country 
every season. 

Blake came to Carolina 
after serving three seasons 
at the University of Ne- 
braska, where he coached 
or recruited several 
outstanding defensive 
linemen, including 2007 
NFL first-round draft 
pick Adam Carriker (13th 
overall), 2007 third-round 
draft pick Jay Moore and 
2010 NFL first-round se- 
lection Ndamukong Suh. 
The Huskers defensive 
line was ranked the top 
defensive line unit in the 
country by CoIlegeFoot- 
ballNews.com in 2006. 

Davis and Blake previ- 
ously worked together 
as members of Jimmy 
Johnson's staff with the 




The Blake Family: Jourdan, Freda & John 

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, III., Blake played for Switzer at Okla- 
homa 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 and earned a national champion- 
ship ring that season. The Sooners lost just two games during his 
first tenure on the staff. 

Blake's first full-time assistant position was at Tulsa from 
1987-88, where he coached the tight ends and wide receivers. 
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 tenure. Among 
others, Blake tutored Pro Bowlers Charles Haley, Russell Mary- 
land. Leon Lett, Chad Henning, Tony Tolbert and Jim Jeffcoat. 

Blake earned his bachelor's degree in public relations and 
recreation from Oklahoma in 1986. He and his wife. Freda, have 
one son, Jourdan.

binations in the league. Draughn was among the 
league's top rushers in 2009 before a shoulder 
injury vs. Duke sidelined him for the rest of the 
year. Houston, who finished ninth in the league in 
touchdowns, took over as the primary ball carrier 
and led the team in rushing. Houston has com- 
bined for 17 touchdowns over the last two seasons and is one 
of the most difficult runners to bring down after initial contact. 
Draughn coverted from safety to running back in 2008 and has 
started 17 games in the last two years. 

In 16 seasons in Chapel Hill, Browning has developed a 
number of outstanding players, including lirst-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 lirst-round 
NFL draft pick Kentwan Balmer. Sports Illustrated selected 
North Carolina's defensive tackles in its positional "Dream 
Team" in its 1998 preseason college football issue. In 2002. 
Sims, who played under Browning for three years, was selected 
by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round. 

Browning is in his second stint coaching on the offensive 
side of the ball at UNC. He coached Carolina's tight ends for 
four seasons (2001-04). where he developed several standout 
players.

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

rated high school coaches. Brown- 
ing joined the Tar Heel staff in

Snoop's pro-style offense, including 2008 
all-conference wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, 
who set 14 records at UNC and was drafted in 
the NFL first round last year. Quarterback T.J. 
Yates, an unknown commodity prior to the 
start of the 2007 season, is second all-lime at 
UNC in passing yards, attempts, completions 
and completion percentage. 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.

year, averaging 28.4 points over the last seven games of the

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 coordinator 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 Offensive 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 became 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 quarterbacks coach, serving in that capac- 
ity for Carolina from 1997-98. 

Shoop began his coaching career as a volunteer quarterbacks 
coach at Dartmouth in 1 99 1 . then served as a graduate assistant 
at Vanderbilt from 1992-94, where he also earned a master's 
degree in education.

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 recep- 
tions 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 Hurricanes in receiving both years 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.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR 



SECONDARY COACH 
THIRD SEASON AT UNC 



Charlotte, N.C, native Everett Withers enters 
his third season as North Carolina's defensive 
coordinator and secondary coach. Withers is in 
his 23rd season as a coach and has experience at 
both the professional and college level. 

A year ago, the Tar Heels' defense was 
among the nation's elite, ranking sixth in total 
defense. 10th against the run, 13th in scoring de- 
fense and 14th in pass defense. Carolina was the 
only school in the country ranked in the top 15 in 
total yards allowed, scoring defense, run defense, 
pass defense, pass efficiency defense, third-down 
defense and tackles for losses. Six Carolina 
defenders were named all-conference, including 
tirst-team picks Robert Quinn. Quail Sturdivant. 
Kendric Burney and Deunta Williams. 

In addition to his duties as the coordinator. 
Withers oversees the defensive secondary, which 
has developed into one of the best units in the country. Carolina 
picked off 19 passes in 2009 and has 39 interceptions over the 
past two seasons. Last year, Carolina set a single-season ACC 
record with 508 interception return yards. 

In 2008. the opportunistic Tar Heel defense ranked eighth 
in the country with 20 interceptions, just one shy of the school 
record. 

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

Withers spent six seasons with the Tennessee Titans from 
200 1 -06 under head coach Jeff Fisher. From 2002-04, Withers 





The Withers Family: Everett, Tia, Pierce and Kara 

helped the Titans defense tally 57 interceptions, which was the 
most for the franchise over a three-year period since 1993-95. 
The 57 interceptions 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 interceptions were the most by a Titans safety 
since 1993. Withers also developed Andre Dyson into a starter 
as a rookie in 2001 and helped him total 16 interceptions during 
his four-year Titan career, including six his final season. 

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

Withers joined the Longhorns after three seasons 
( 1995-97) as defensive coordinator at Louisville. His 
1996 defensive unit ranked fourth nationally in both total 
defense (235.8) and rushing defense (81.1) and led the 
NCAA in forced turnovers (41). While at Louisville. With- 
| ers 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 in 1994. Prior to his experi- 
ence with the Saints, Withers was defensive backs coach 
at Southern Mississippi for two seasons (1992-93) and 
outside linebackers coach at Tulane in 1991 . The first three 
years of Withers' coaching career came at Austin Peay. 
where he was defensive coordinator ( 1988-89) and special 
ams/wide receivers coach (1990). 
Withers earned his bachelor's degree from Appalachian 
State in 1985. He was also a standout defensive back and 
captain for the Mountaineers from 1981-85. Withers and

DICK BADDOUR 




DICK BADDOUR 



DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS 

44TH YEA R ATUNC 

1 4TH YEAR AS 



ATHLETIC DIRECTOR 



Goldsboro native and Tar Heel alumnus 
Dick Baddour is in his 14th year as Director of 
Athletics and his 44th 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 second-longest current tenure among Atlantic Coast Confer- 
ence 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. 

Under his direction, the Tar Heels have won 13 national championships, in- 
cluding seven in women's soccer, three in field hockey, two in men's basketball 
and one in men's soccer, won two football bowl games and had numerous Top 10 
national finishes in Olympic Sports. Nineteen UNC men's and women's teams 
have combined for 62 ACC championships, more than any other school in that 
time. UNC has led the league in the number of team championships seven times. 
Last year, Carolina won national championships in field hockey and women's 
soccer and reached the national semifinals in men's soccer, women's lacrosse and 
women's tennis. Twenty-four of 28 sports competed in post-season play. The Tar 
Heels finished seventh nationally in the Learfield Directors Cup. Overall, Caro- 
lina has averaged a seventh-place finish in the Directors Cup and finished first 
among ACC schools 10 times in Baddour's 13 years at the helm. 

The seventh-place finish in the Directors Cup marked the eighth top 10 finish 
by the Tar Heels in the last nine years, including top four showings in 2006, 2007 
and 2009. By comparison, the other 1 1 ACC schools have combined for eight top 
10 finishes in the 17-year history of the Directors Cup. 

Academically, 23 of Carolina's sports exceeded the national average in the 
NCAA's Academic Progress Rating. Six programs scored a perfect 1 ,000 in the 
APR over the last four years and 1 3 scored a perfect 1 ,000 in 2008-09. The APR 
accounts for eligibility, retention and graduation and provides a measure of each 
team's academic performance. 

Carolina baseball, men's basketball, men's and women's swimming and div- 
ing, women's fencing, women's golf, gymnastics and volleyball rank in the Top 
10 percent nationally in their respective sports. Men's basketball, men's and 
women's swimming and diving, women's golf and volleyball had the highest 
APRs in the Atlantic Coast Conference in their respective sports for the four-year 
period from 2005-06 to 2008-09. 

Baddour emphasizes academic achievement and 
the overall student experience. Last year, 266 student- 
athletes made the ACC Academic Honor Roll. 277 
earned Dean's List honors over the two semesters and 
eight different programs finished the spring with a cu- 
mulative grade point average of better than 3.0. 
The 2008-09 season was one of the finest in 
Carolina history as the Tar Heels finished second 
nationally in the Learfield Directors Cup. Women's 
soccer and men's basketball won NCAA champion- 
ships, men's soccer and women's lacrosse reached 
the NCAA finals, baseball advanced to the College 
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 
football bowl game in the same year. 

Six years ago, Baddour created the Carolina 
Leadership Academy, a training program for student- 
athletes, coaches and administrators. The program 
develops leadership skills through interactive work- 
shops, 360-degree feedback, one-on-one coaching, 
peer mentoring and educational resources. Carolina's 
coaches consider the program an overwhelming suc- 
cess and it is a model for schools across the nation. 

Baddour has hired head coaches in 1 1 sports, 
including Roy Williams, Butch Davis and Mike Fox, 
overseen renovations or created plans to update virtu-

ally every facility in the athletic 
complex, expanded the direction 
and staffing for student-athlete 
services and worked tirelessly to 
set the program on sound finan- 
cial footing. 

Baddour has made it a top 
priority to ensure the athletic de- 
partment stays financially stable. 
His efforts to put together a plan 
and financial model to renovate 
Kenan Stadium have resulted 
in phase I being completed by 
adding a fifth floor to the Kenan 
Football Center and phase II 
getting approval from the Board 
of Trustees in May 2010. Phase 
II includes the Carolina Center 
for Student-Athlete Excellence, 
a five-story privately financed 
structure that will house the 
academic support center for 
student-athletes, the Carolina Leadership Academy, Olympic sports' strength and 
conditioning center, visiting locker room, club seats and individual suites. The 
Center for Excellence not only provides much needed space for academic support 
for all 28 of Carolina's varsity programs, it also creates an additional revenue 
stream through the sale of premium seats that will provide future revenue for the 
department. 

The athletic department and Rams Club raised nearly $300 million over the 
last 10 seasons in support of the Carolina First campaign, increasing the scholar- 
ship endowment to where it is the largest for a public school in the country. Bad- 
dour developed funding models for facility enhancement projects, scholarships 
and operating budgets. He negotiated partnerships with Nike to outfit the athletic 
program, with Learfield Communications to direct UNC's multi-media properties, 
with Wachovia for on-site sponsorship in the Smith Center and Aramark for con- 
cessions. The Nike deal was widely praised as one of the most socially conscious 
contracts of its kind with respect to global labor issues. 

Baddour has overseen a number of facility enhancements throughout his ten- 
ure. Last year, Carmichael Arena re-opened after a $30 million renovation and the 
Stallings-Evans Sports Medicine Center, a facility that is open to student-athletes 
and the student body at large for sports injury rehabilitation, opened in the spring. 
Boshamer Stadium re-opened in 2009 after a $25 million renovation and has been 
received as one of the top baseball facilities in the country. The athletic depart- 
ment and Rams Club moved into the Ernie Williamson Athletics Center in 2007 

and the Carolina Basketball Museum opened its doors 
in early 2008. 

Baddour began his UNC career in 1967 as assis- 
tant 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 admissions and 
scholarship programs, head of personnel and supervi- 
sor of career planning and placement. 

Baddour spent 1 I years as John Swofford'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 Association. 

Baddour and his wife, Lynda, have three children. 
Allen, a superior court judge for Orange and Chatham 
Counties, and his wife. Holly, have two sons, Henry 
and Jack; David, an attorney with RTP-based Wom- 
ble-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, and a 
daughter, Lynley.

HOLDEN THORP 

CHANCELLOR 



A T CAROLINA, Holden Thorp has been an undergraduate student, a chemistry 

/-=\ professor, a planetarium director, an inventor and entrepreneur, as well as a dean. He 

^ JL, graduated with honors, won teaching awards, led a powerhouse chemistry 

department, developed technology for electronic DNA chips, founded spin-off companies, 

and succeeded as an administrator. 

Now, as the 10th chancellor, Thorp draws from all of those experiences in leading Caro- 
lina, which is among the great research universities in the United States and the world. 



A North Carolina native, Thorp grew up in Fay- 
etteville in a family steeped in Carolina traditions 
dating to the 1800s. When graduation from 
Terry San ford High School approached, there 
was only one school on his college application 
list — UNC. He earned a bachelor of science de- 
gree with honors in 1986. 

Attending a world-class research university — 
where research and teaching are done by the same 
people — gave Thorp opportunities to work in 
chemistry labs with some of UNC's best faculty. 
Those experiences inspired him to become a pro- 
fessor. He pursued that dream at the California 
Institute of Technology, where he earned a doc- 
torate in chemistry in 1989, and at Yale Univer- 
sity for postgraduate work. After teaching a year 
at NC State, he returned to UNC in 1993. 

Because he has lived it from both sides of the 
classroom, Thorp is passionate about the under- 
graduate experience. "Carolina is perfectly suited 
to leverage our students' interests in the great prob- 
lems facing our world to enhance their academic 
success and position them to lead us," he says. 

The University's future depends on aspiring to 
global academic excellence and serving the needs of 
North Carolina's students and people. "We're the 
university of both— and: Both academic promi- 
nence and a commitment to our state," Thorp says. 

Before becoming chancellor in 2008, Thorp 
served a year as dean of the College of Arts and 
Sciences. He chaired the chemistry department, 
led a $17 million fundraising effort for the Caro- 
lina Physical Science Complex as faculty director 
and was director of the Morehead Planetarium 
and Science Center. 

Thorp serves on a new U.S. Manufacturing 
Competitiveness Initiative for the Council on

presidents and labor leaders working to ensure 
U.S. prosperity in a global economy. He is also a 
member of the Champions' Board of Teach for 
America, which aims to end educational inequity 
across the nation, as well as the Associations' Pat- 
ent Reform Task Force, an advisory body to six 
associations representing 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 tech- 
nology for electronic DNA chips that led to 19 
issued or pending U.S. patents. 

Thorp co-authored a new book, "Engines of 
Innovation — The Entrepreneurial University in 
the 21st Century," with Buck Goldstein, Univer- 
sity Entrepreneur in Residence. The UNC Press 
book makes the case for the pivotal role of

graduate. Their children are John and Emma.

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. 



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. 



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." 



I'M A 



W^IBHE. 



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 Forever — Planned Giving 

As the Rams Club's planned giving program, Carolina Forever of- 
fers donors an opportunity to make a lasting impact by involving 
Carolina Athletics in their estate planning. Carolina Forever's mission 
is to ensure 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.

IMA TAR HEEL. It's a simple statement — a phrase that can 
mean something different for each person who says it. Underlying 
it is a thread common to each member of the Carolina Family. That 
underlying thread is the commitment each Tar Heel has to do things 
the Carolina Way— with great integrity, a dedication to fellow Tar Heels, 
an unwavering loyalty to Carolina, and a commitment to excellence. 

The Carolina Way also entails a commitment to excellence — a 
commitment that is unrivaled elsewhere. It is evident in Carolina's 37 
team national championships, 54 individual national championships, 
and numerous conference titles. It is evident in the classroom as 
Carolina boasts an outstanding 85 percent graduation rate among 
student-athletes. It is evident in the community as Tar Heel student- 
athletes and staff performed more than 20,000 hours of community 
service last year. 

The Rams Club shares the commitment to a high level of excellence 
that is characteristic of this University. The Rams Club supports 
Carolina's broad-based athletics program by offering scholarship and 
program support assistance to more than 450 student-athletes in 28 
varsity sports each year. 

As a Rams Club member, you can enjoy the pride of investing in our 
student-athletes and their success. Your renewed membership in The 
Rams Club gives our outstanding student-athletes an opportunity to 
give their own definition of what it means TO BE A 

TAR HEEL. 



To come to such a great university with a rich history 
and tradition means the world to me. I will always 
cherish the amazing times I've had here at Carolina. 
I am forever grateful for the opportunity to come to the 
best university in the nation. Hove Carolina! 
I'm Deunta Williams, and I'm a Tar Heel.

Carolina football plays its home games at Kenan 
Memorial Stadium (cap. 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. 
For scenery, atmosphere and charm, it cannot be 
surpassed. 

The stadium has been expanded several times 
since its completion in 1927. In each instance, 
though, great care was taken to keep its 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 pregame gathering areas, 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. 

In May, 2010, the UNC Board of Trustees 
approved the Carolina Student-Athlete Center for 



Excellence, a Five-story privately financed structure 
that will be built in Kenan Stadium's east end zone 
to house the academic support center for student- 
athletes, the Carolina Leadership Academy, Olympic 
sports' strength and conditioning center, visiting 
locker room, club seats and individual suites. 

Construction has already begun on the project that 
is expected to take roughly 15 months to complete 
in time for the start of the 201 1 football season. The 
additional seats in the end zone, named the Blue 
Zone, offers 1 ,836 seats in the Concourse Club/Loge 
just a few feet from the field, 824 seats in the Upper 
Club/Loge on the fourth floor and 320 seats in 20 
suites on the fifth floor. Combined, the project adds 
2,980 seats to the stadium's capacity. The project 
will also tie the north and south concourses together 
and will provide the stadium with 360 degree con- 
course to enhance fan movement in the facility. 

For more information and photos of the Carolina 
Student-Athlete Center for Excellence, please visit 
NewKenan.com. 

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 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 his- 
tory 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 Rams Club and its members com- 
mitted more than $50 million to the project. 

The football center is named in honor of the late 
Frank H. Kenan, one of the school's most generous 
benefactors. Kenan was a Durham resident and chief 
executive officer of Kenan Transport Company in 
Chapel Hill. He passed away at age 83 in 1996. 

Kenan, a 1935 Carolina graduate, was the great- 
great-grandson of General James Kenan, a member 
of the University's founding board of trustees. An 
Atlanta native. Kenan had a tremendous impact on 
the growth of the University. He served on many 
campus boards, including the Board of Visitors and 
the Educational Foundation Board of Directors. 

In recent years the William R. Kenan Jr. 
Charitable Trust, of which he was a trustee, has 
donated more than $100 million to schools in the 
state's consolidated university system, including 
Carolina. NC State and the N.C. School of the Arts.

KENAN STADIUM 



«^« 



Among other tilings, the trust funds 92 William R. 
Kenan Jr. Professorships at 56 colleges and univer- 
sities nationwide. 

Kenan served on the steering committee of 
Carolina's Bicentennial Campaign, the University's 
largest fund-raising effort. Gifts by him. his family 
and the trust during the campaign exceeded $31 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 $10 million 
gift. 

The preferred seating box that rises above the 
second deck of the grandstand on the north side of 
the stadium has outdoor seating 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 ami 
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 
$1 .000.000 contribution to construct a second deck 
on the stadium. After Kenan's death in 1965 the 
William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust, which was 
established by his will, donated $1 .000,000 to 
enlarge and modernize Kenan Fieldhouse. 

In 1988 the Kenan Trust made another $1,000,000 
gift to complete the new chancellor's box on the 
North Side. Another lasting memory of William 
R. Kenan Jr. is the Kenan Athletic Scholarship 
Endowment, valued at over $1 ,000.000. Each year 
a student-athlete is awarded a full scholarship from 
this fund. 

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

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

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

As originally built, the stadium seated 24,000. 
However, in 1963 the benefactor added portable 
stands and then an upper deck to the permanent 
stands, which increased 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 fool 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.

TARHEELS 



2009 REVIEW 



&**' 



Tar Heels Post Back-to-Back Eight- 
Win Seasons 



• North Carolina finished 8-5 for the second 
consecutive season. Carolina's 16 wins over the 
last two years are the most by a Tar Heel team 
since posting 21 victories in 1996 and 1997. Only 
Virginia Tech (19). Georgia Tech (19) and Boston 
College (17) have had more wins in the ACC over 
the last two seasons. 

• Carolina advanced to a bowl game for con- 
secutive seasons for the first time since 1997-1998. 

Success Against Ranked Teams 



• Dating back to 2008, the Tar Heels had won 
five straight against teams ranked the APTop 25 
Poll prior to the loss to No. 1 7 Pittsburgh in the 
Meineke Car Care Bowl. In 2008, Carolina posted 
wins over No. 24 Connecticut. No. 23 Boston Col- 
lege and No. 22 Georgia Tech. In 2009, Carolina 
knocked off No. 14 Virginia Tech in Blacksburg 
on Oct. 29 and defeated No. 12 Miami on Nov. 7. 
The 2009 win over Miami is the highest ranked 
team Carolina has defeated since a 31-28 win over 
No. 4 Miami in 2004. 

• The last time Carolina defeated two Top- 1 5 
teams in the same season was 2001 when the Tar 
Heels knocked off No. 6 Florida State. 41 -9. and 
No. 13 Clemson, 38-3. The 2009 season was the 
third time in school history Carolina defeated two 
top 15 teams in the same season. The others were 
1957 and 1979. 

Nine Players Earn All-ACC Honors 



• Nine North Carolina football players, includ- 
ing four first-team defensive selections, were 
named to the 2009 All-Atlantic Coast Conference 
teams as selected by the Atlantic Coast Sports 
Media Association (ACSMA). Defensive end 
Robert Quinn, linebacker Quan Sturdivant, corner- 
back Kendric Bumey and safety Deunta Williams 
earned first-team honors, while linebacker Bruce 
Carter, defensive tackle Marvin Austin and place- 
kicker Casey Barth were named to the second 
team. Tight end Zack Pianalto and offensive tackle 
Kyle Jolly were honorable-mention picks. 

• Carolina's four first-team selections were the 
most by the Tar Heels since placing six on the 
1997 all-conference squad. Carolina had not had 
four defensive players make first team since 1 997 
when five were honored. The 209 season was 
the first year since 2002 that the Tar Heels had a 
defensive first-team all-conference selection. 

• Quinn, a sophomore from Ladson, S.C., had 
the second-highest vote total of any defensive 
player after finishing the season with 19 tackles for 
losses, including 1 1 sacks. Quinn ranked first in 
the ACC in tackles for losses, second in sacks and 
second in forced fumbles with six. He was the first 
defensive end to earn first-team All-ACC honors at 
UNC since Julius Peppers in 2001 . 

• Sturdivant, a junior from Oakboro. N.C., was 
the first Tar Heel linebacker to earn first-team all- 
conference honors since Kivuusama Mays in 1997. 
For the second straight season, Sturdivant led the 
Tar Heels in tackles, finishing with 75. including 
12 for loss, which ranked sixth in the conference. 

• Williams and Bumey. both juniors from Jack- 
sonville, N.C., took two of the four all-conference 
defensive backfield spots. Bumey had 48 tackles 



and five interceptions for 200 yards and two 
touchdowns. He ranks second all-time in the ACC 
in interception return yardage and holds the UNC 
career record for interception returns for touch- 
downs with three. Burney was the first UNC cor- 
nerback to earn first-team all-league honors since 
Robert Williams and Die' Bly in 1997. Williams 
had a team-high six interceptions for 1 14 yards and 
finished the regular season with 41 tackles. 

• A native of Washington. D.C., Austin had 40 
tackles, including six tackles for losses and four 
sacks. He was joined on the second-team defensive 
squad by Carter, who was second on the team 
with 61 tackles, including seven for losses. Barth 
became the first kicker at UNC since Jeff Reed in 
2000 to earn all-conference honors after making 20 
of 24 attempts, including 16 in a row at one point 
this season. 

• Despite missing four games to a foot injury. 
Pianalto was one of the top tight ends in the league 
with 31 receptions for 308 yards and a touchdown. 
Jolly graded out as the team's top offensive line- 
man and had 3 1 knockdown blocks on the season. 

• In the last two seasons, Carolina has had 16 
all-conference selections, the most in any two-year 
period since 1996-97(22). 

Carolina Defense Ranked No. 6 In 
The Country 

• North Carolina was ranked in the top 15 in the 
country in all four major defensive categories. The 
Tar Heels were No. 6 in total defense (269.6 avg.), 
No. 10 in rushing defense (95.6 avg.). 13th in scor- 
ing defense (17.1 avg.) and 14th in passing defense 
(174.0 avg.). The last time North Carolina fin- 
ished ranked in the nation's top 10 in total defense 
was 1997, when the Tar Heels were No. 2. 

• Carolina's run defense held nine of 12 regular 
season opponents under 100 yards on the season. 
Duke rushed for just 12 yards, the fewest by 

a UNC opponent in 2009 (previous 30 by The 
Citadel). It was the fewest since Wake Forest had 
minus-two yards in 2000. In the final six games 
of the regular season vs. Florida State (43 rushing 
yards). Virginia Tech (95), Duke (12), Miami 
(116), Boston College (97) and NC State (76). 
Carolina held its opponents to 73.2 rushing yards 
per game. 

• Carolina's defense held eight of its 1 2 regular 
season opponents under 270 yards, including five 
to fewer than 200 yards. 

• The Tar Heels held eight of 1 2 regular season 
opponents to 17 points or less this season. Caroli- 
na posted a second-half shutout at Boston College 
in a 31-13 win. UNC held Duke to just six points 
and shut out the Blue Devils in the second half. 

A week earlier, Carolina shut out Virginia Tech 
in the first half and held the Hokies to 17 points. 
Carolina allowed a season-high 24 points twice 
this season - in a 24-7 loss at Georgia Tech and a 
33-24 win vs. Miami. 

• The last time Carolina allowed less than 300 
total yards per game was in 1997, when UNC's 
defense ranked in the top 10 nationally in all major 
statistical categories.

2009 GAME REVIEWS 




Carolina 40, The Citadel 6 

September 5, 2009 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - T.J. Yates threw two touch- 
down passes in the decisive first half, and No. 21 North 
Carolina routed The Citadel 40-6 on Saturday night. 

Ryan Houston had touchdown runs of 5 and 3 yards, 
and Shaun Draughn rushed for 1 1 8 yards while helping 
the Tar Heels roll up 375 yards total offense. They had a 
261 -30 advantage on the ground. 

Da'Norris Searcy returned a late punt 77 yards for 
a touchdown. Yates was 9 of 20 for 1 1 4 yards in three 
quarters, with scoring passes of 1 8 yards to Johnny White 
and 21 yards to Greg Little for the Tar Heels. 

They played their first opener as a ranked team since 
they were No. 1 2 in 1 998, and were upset 1 3- 1 by 
Miami of Ohio. This one was nowhere near that close, 
after a second quarter in which North Carolina scored on 
four straight possessions. 

The halftime stat sheet was all Tar Heels: They led 23-0, 
outgained the Bulldogs 204-73, held a 108-16 advantage 
in yards rushing and forced four turnovers. 

Bart Blanchard was 21 of 37 for 1 1 7 yards for The 
Citadel, but threw three first-half interceptions. Two were 
picked off by Deunta Williams - including one in the 
end zone that thwarted the Bulldogs' best chance for a 
touchdown. 

At least The Citadel kept things closer than it did its 
last time out - a 70-1 9 loss to eventual national champion 
Florida in last year's finale. That wasn't much consolation 
for a Championship Subdivision team looking to beat one 
of the big boys for the first time since 1 992. 

This was a punishing all-around effort from the Tar 
Heels. They entered coach Butch Davis' third season 
hoping to take the next step toward becoming an annual 
contender in the Atlantic Coast Conference - but also 
looking for a way to replace three receivers taken in the 
NFL draft. 

Yates capped the Tar Heels' second possession of the 
second quarter with his scoring pass to White to make it 
10-0, before hooking up with Little shortly before halftime 
for the play of the game. 

Yates was flushed right but found Little outside the 
hash marks. The one-time running back spun around one 
defender and shook off three arm tackles while cutting 
back across the field for his first receiving touchdown 
since 2007.

Carolina 12, Connecticut 10 

September 1 2, 2009 

Rentschler Field • East Hartford, Conn. 



HARTFORD (AP) - No. 1 9 North Carolina won 12-10 
at Connecticut after defensive end Robert Ouinn was held 
in the end zone with 1 :32 left in the game giving the Tar 
Heels a safety. 

The Tar Heels (2-0) trailed 10-0 entering the fourth 
quarter, when Casey Barth kicked a 22-yard field goal. 
Then, T.J. Yates led the team on a 1 3-play drive, and his 
2-yard touchdown pass to tight end Zack Pianalto with 
2:36 left tied the game at 10. Pianalto hurt his leg jump- 
ing up after the score and had to be taken from the field 
in an air cast, another bizarre moment from a game that 
ended in crazy fashion. 

After the safety, UConn recovered the onside kick but 
couldn't get into field-goal range, allowing North Caro- 
lina to improve to 3-0 against the Huskies. UConn has just 
one win in 1 3 games against Top 25 opponents. 

UConn's stifling defense held North Carolina scoreless 
and with just 1 34 yards of offense through three quarters. 
The Huskies seemed poised for an upset after cornerback 
Robert McClain batted Yates' pass into the hands of Twyon 
Martin at the Tar Heels 26 late in the third quarter. 

UConn tailback Jordan Todman dragged several 
defenders the final four yards for the score, putting the 
Huskies up 10-0. 

Yates, who completed 23 of 32 passes for 233 yards 
and two interceptions, found his groove in the fourth 
quarter. He led the Tar Heels on a 78-yard drive that 
ended with Barth 's field goal, and when UNC got the ball 
back, he marched 78-yards again, eating up 6:36 before 
finding Pianalto in the end zone from 2-yards out. 

While the Huskies held North Carolina to just 65 
yards in the first half, and pressured Yates all day, North 
Carolina's defense held UConn to just 1 96 yards, and 
dominated the Huskies in the fourth quarter. 

UConn got the ball at the 20 after the tying touchdown, 
but a snap over backup quarterback Cody Endres' head 
on second down put the ball at the 8-yard line. 

Endres scrambled away from the pass rush on third 
down, and completed a 1 6-yard pass to Todman that 
would have given the Huskies a fourth-and-6. But there 
was the flag in the end zone, and the safety that gave 
North Carolina the lead.

September 20, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - T.J. Yates threw for two 
touchdowns while freshman receiver Erik Highsmith had 
a big game to help No. 24 North Carolina beat East 
Carolina 31-17. 

Highsmith had six catches for 1 1 3 yards and a score 
for the Tar Heels, who are off to their first 3-0 start since 
winning the first eight games in 1 997. His big day 
included a pair of key catches to move the chains on 
the Tar Heels' clock-draining drive that ended with Ryan 
Houston's 5-yard score with 1 :58 left in the game. 

Jheranie Boyd also had a juggling 59-yard touchdown 
grab for his first collegiate catch, and North Carolina got 
a solid all-around effort from its young offense to comple- 
ment another strong performance from its defense. 

East Carolina ( 1 -2) got a touchdown catch from Jamar 
Bryant and a TD run from Dwayne Harris, but finished 
with just 247 total yards. 

Yates completed 1 9 of 24 passes for 227 yards 
while spreading the ball around to several talented but 
unproven receivers. Highsmith came up with a 16-yard 
touchdown catch for North Carolina's first score, while 
fellow rookie Boyd hauled in Yates' deep ball to make it 
1 4-7 in the second quarter. 

Highsmith was particularly impressive, starting with 
a 16-yard catch for North Carolina's first score. But he 
made his biggest plays in the fourth quarter after the Pi- 
rates had closed to within 24-1 7. First he took a quick out 
from T.J. Yates and sprinted 43 yards for first down. Two 
plays later, Yates rolled to his left and found Highsmith 
again for a 10-yard gain and another first down that 
ultimately led to Houston's second score. 

In perhaps a good omen, Highsmith became the first 
true freshman to crack the 100-yard mark here since 
Nicks did it three times in 2006. 

The offensive line, which played without injured senior 
center Lowell Dyer, also opened up enough running lanes 
for Houston and Shaun Draughn. Houston's 1 -yard score 
late in the first half put North Carolina ahead for good at 
2 1 - 1 4, while Draughn ran 1 9 times for 84 yards. 

The Pirates handed Butch Davis his first loss as North 
Carolina's coach in 2007 with a last-play field goal in 
Greenville. Patrick Pinkney threw for 406 yards and three 
touchdowns in that game, but threw for just 1 57 yards 
and a touchdown in this one. He got no help from the 
rushing attack, either; East Carolina had 55 yards on 30 
carries against the Tar Heels' defensive front.

Georgio Tech 24, Carolina 7 

September 26, 2008 

Bobby Dodd Stadium • 

Atlanta, Ga. 



ATLANTA (AP) - Josh Nesbitt ran for two touchdowns 
and Georgia Tech held the ball for 42 minutes, its highest 
total in 1 3 years, to beat No. 22 North Carolina 24-7. 

Georgia Tech (3-1 , 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) 
opened in a 4-3 scheme instead of the 4-2-5 it ran last 
week. The third linebacker helped; the Yellow Jackets held 
North Carolina (3-1 , 0-1 ) to 1 54 yards on only 44 plays. 

Georgia Tech held the ball for 42 minutes, 6 seconds- 
its best mark since a 1 996 win over Wake Forest. 

Jonathan Dwyer ran for 158 yards in his first 100-yard 
game of the season. He showed no sign of the shoulder 
injury that limited him to five carries for 7 yards against 
Miami. 

Nesbitt added a career-high 32 carries for 97 yards. 
Georgia Tech had 31 7 yards rushing in its spread-option 
offense while holding North Carolina to 1 7. 

North Carolina's only touchdown came on Yates' 40- 
yard pass to Erik Highsmith early in the fourth quarter. 

Georgia Tech then put the game away with a 1 7-play, 
76-yard touchdown drive, capped by Nesbitt's 1 0-yard 
run. The drive lasted 8:15. 

Burnett's second interception ended North Carolina's 
final drive with 1 ;34 remaining. 

Georgia Tech did not commit a turnover. It was a 
reversal from last year, when North Carolina won 28-7 
in Chapel Hill as the Yellow Jackets were hurt by two lost 
fumbles, an interception, two missed field goals and two 
failed fourth-down conversions. 

Georgia Tech extended its lead after a Tar Heels 
turnover. Yates lined up in the shotgun but wasn't looking 
for the snap when the ball shot past him. Georgia Tech 
defensive end Derrick Morgan recovered the fumble at the 
North Carolina 32, setting up Scott Blair's 34-yard field 
goal for a 10-0 halftime lead. 

The kickers combined to miss three field goals of under 
40 yards. North Carolina's Casey Barth was wide right 
on a 32-yard attempt. Blair missed tries of 37 yards in the 
first quarter and 27 yards in the third quarter. 

There was light rain in the second half. Fans were 
cautioned of lightning in the area at the start of the fourth 
quarter and told they could re-enter the stadium if they 
chose to leave. Most fans remained until the rain became 
heavy in the final minutes.

Virginia 16, Carolina 3 

October 3, 2008 

Kenan Stadium » Cha pel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -Mikell Simpson ran for the 
game-clinching touchdown in the fourth quarter while 
Virginia's defense turned in a dominating performance to 
beat North Carolina 16-3 on Saturday. 

Robert Randolph kicked three field goals for the 
Cavaliers (1-3, 1 -0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who came 
out of a bye week with a desperately needed win after 
a terrible start to the season. Simpson added 100 yards 
rushing, but the Cavs didn't need much offense consider- 
ing the way their defense completely locked down on the 
Tar Heels (3-2, 0-2). 

North Carolina got nothing from its rushing attack, 
committed three turnovers and managed just 1 74 total 
yards. And when Simpson ran it in from 8 yards out with 
5:49 left, Virginia had a two-possession lead that sent 
most of the light blue-clad Tar Heel fans bolting for the 
Kenan Stadium exits. 

The Tar Heels came into the season facing several ques- 
tions about their offense and knowing that their defense 
would have to carry the load. The defense did its part for 
most of the day, with Robert Quinn tallying three sacks 
and Virginia managing just 254 total yards. But the of- 
fense turned in a bad performance for the second straight 
week, failing to reach the end zone against a defense that 
was allowing 31 points per game coming in. 

It wasn't the kind of performance the Tar Heels 
expected from a team that was nationally ranked just 
two weeks ago before a 24-7 loss at Georgia Tech. But 
for the Cavaliers, it was exactly what they needed after a 
tumultuous opening month of the season that had led to 
speculation about coach Al Groh's future. 

Virginia had lost at home to Championship Subdivision 
team William & Mary in the opener, then followed that 
with a home loss to TCU. The Cavaliers then scrapped 
some of the spread offense they had installed in the 
preseason before the Southern Mississippi game and led 
by 1 7 points halftime before falling 37-34. 

Now the Cavaliers have won 1 of 1 2 meetings 
against their cross-border rivals, including all three since 
Butch Davis took over in Chapel Hill in 2007.

Carolina 42, Georgia Southern 1 2 

October 10,2008 
Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Ryan Houston rushed for 
three touchdowns and Quan Sturdivant returned a fumble 
49 yards for a score, one of six turnovers forced by North 
Carolina during a 42- 1 2 rout of Georgia Southern on 
Saturday. 

Bruce Carter brought back an interception 41 yards for 
a TD and the defense set up two quick scoring drives with 
takeaways for North Carolina (4-2). 

Houston scored on rushes of 1 , 1 and 7 yards. Shaun 
Draughn added a 1 6-yard touchdown run for the Tar 
Heels, who held the Eagles to 170 total yards and 75 
through the air. 

Adam Urbano had a 45-yard TD rush - the longest al- 
lowed this season by North Carolina's stingy defense - for 
the Eagles (3-3). 

The Tar Heels managed only a combined 10 points 
in consecutive losses to Georgia Tech and Virginia that 
dropped them out of the national rankings and into last 
place in the ACC's Coastal Division, 

Turned out, a timely visit from another outmanned 
Football Championship Subdivision opponent was just 
what they needed, building a 42-7 halftime lead - their 
highest-scoring first half in nine years. 

The Tar Heels' defense, which entered with national 
rankings of No. 8 overall and No. 4 against the pass, 
spoke openly during game week about feeling the need to 
give their struggling offense a jolt. Defensive end Robert 
Quinn promising to "put it on our shoulders." 

Did they ever. Quinn jarred the ball loose from Lee 
Chappie as he passed late in the first quarter. E.J Wilson 
returned it to the 1 6 and Draughn scored on the next play 
to make it 1 4-0. 

Sturdivant pushed the lead to 21 -7 midway through 
the second when he ripped the ball out of Urbano's hands 
and returned it down the right sideline for his second 
career score. Zach Brown's interception moments later 
gave the Tar Heels the ball at the 22 and three plays later, 
Houston barrelled in from 7 yards out. 

Carter then snuffed out the Eagles' next possession with 
his second career interception return for a TD. 

North Carolina, held to nine first downs in last week's 
loss to the previously winless Cavaliers, nearly matched 
that on an opening drive that ended with Houston's first 
1 -yard plunge. He powered in with 6 seconds before the 
break to give the Tar Heels their most points in a first half 
since they scored 52 against Duke in 2000.

Florida State 30, Carolina 27 

October 18, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) • Christian Ponder threw 
for 395 yards and three touchdowns to help Florida 
State rally from a big second-half deficit and beat North 
Carolina 30-27 in the first Thursday night game in UNC 
history. 

Rod Owens had nine catches for 1 99 yards, including 
a 98 yard score, for the Seminoles (3-4, 1 -3 Atlantic 
Coast Conference), who trailed 24-6 early in the third 
quarter and appeared headed for a fourth straight loss. 

Instead, Ponder directed a stunning rally against 
the nation's third-ranked total defense, including the 
go-ahead 1 8-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Beau 
Reliford with 6:20 to play. 

The Tar Heels (4-3, 0-3) still had a chance to tie when 
they got the ball back with 47 seconds left and no tim- 
eouts, but their desperate drive only got to midfield before 
Markus White sacked T.J. Yates on the final play. 

Florida State finished with 438 total yards, the most 
allowed by North Carolina all season. That came despite 
the Seminoles generating little on the ground and com- 
mitting penalty after penalty to force almost the entire 
burden on Ponder, who responded by completing 33 of 
40 passes. 

The Tar Heels had everything in hand, dominating the 
mistake-prone Seminoles through the first half to take a 
1 7-6 lead - a margin that could have been even worse 
had they not had a holding penalty wipe out an 81 -yard 
scoring pass from Yates to Jheranie Boyd. 

Yates increased the lead when he rolled left on a 
keeper and scored from 1 yards out to make it 24-6 with 
1 1 : 38 left. The rest of the quarter, however, belonged to 
the Seminoles. 

Ponder connected with Taiwan Easterling for a 6-yard 
touchdown pass to start the comeback. Then, after Yates 
threw an interception near the goal line, Ponder lofted the 
ball deep down the right sideline for Owens, who evaded 
a diving tackle attempt from behind by Charlie Brown 
and sprinted to the end zone for the 98-yard score - the 
longest play from scrimmage by either side in a North 
Carolina game - that made it 24-20 with 4:41 to play in 
the third.

Carolina 20, Virginia Tech 17 

October 29, 2008 
Lane Stadium • Blacksburg, Va. 



BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Casey Barth kicked a 
21 -yard field goal on the final play and the Tar Heels' 
defense, ranked seventh in the nation, stopped No. 1 4 
Virginia Tech all night long in a 20-17 victory 

One week after blowing an 1 8 point lead in a 30-27 
home loss against Florida State that had them reeling, the 
Tar Heels put their troubles in the past and handed the 
Hokies their second loss in a row. 

The Tar Heels (5-3, 1 -3 Atlantic Coast Conference) got 
their first conference win after forcing a fumble by Ryan 
Williams at his own 24 with 2:02 left and running out the 
clock. 

Barth's field goal, his second in the final 3 minutes, just 
made it official. The reverse may be true of the Hokies (5- 
3, 3-2), who until losing to No. 1 1 Georgia Tech 1 2 days 
ago were in the thick of the national championship picture 
and feeling good. 

No one felt worse than Williams, who started the night 
averaging 1 1 9 rushing yards, gained 96 and was hoping 
to lead the team down the field to a win until he lost the 
ball. 

The loss was the Hokies' first in six ACC games against 
the Tar Heels. 

Tydreke Powell caused Williams to fumble for just the 
second time this season-the first was on a muffed punt in 
the opener--and Deunta Williams recovered, setting the 
Tar Heels up at the Hokies 24. After six carries by Ryan 
Houston, Barth's chip shot won it. 

Yates, who was knocked out of the Tar Heels 20-1 7 
loss to the Hokies last season, finished 1 8-for-28 for just 
1 31 yards. He was sacked twice, both in the first quarter. 

He hit Jheranie Boyd from 1 3 yards in the first half 
for the game's first points, and Greg Little from 1 5 yards 
as the Tar Heels answered immediately after the Hokies 
tied it. 

The Hokies finished with just 256 yards and 1 1 first 
downs. 

They finally came to life with their first possession of 
the third quarter, and a huge play by Taylor early in the 
drive saved it. Facing a third-and- 1 7 from his 1 1 , Taylor 
dodged pressure and rifled a 22-yard pass to Dyrell 
Roberts for the first down.

November 7, 2008 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Ryan Houston ran for a 
career-high 1 64 yards and Jheranie Boyd scored the 
clinching touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to 
help North Carolina beat Duke 1 9-6 on Saturday. 

Charles Brown also came up with a key interception 
late in the third quarter as part of a dominating defensive 
performance for the Tar Heels (6-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast 
Conference), who shut down Thad Lewis and the prolific 
passing attack that had carried the Blue Devils (5-4, 3-2) 
to three straight victories. 

Duke finished with 1 25 total yards and had to fight for 
every one of them. The Tar Heels didn't have much offen- 
sive success, but they wore down the Blue Devils behind 
Houston after starting tailback Shaun Draughn went out 
with an early shoulder injury. 

Houston finished with a career-high 37 carries, includ- 
ing 10 on the clock-draining drive that ended with Boyd's 
touchdown with 6:57 left. 

He also had the lead block on Matt Daniels that 
allowed Boyd to get to the right pylon on a 3-yard end- 
around that made it a two-possession game. 

Not a bad performance for a guy who typically served 
as the short-yardage and goal-line back and had never 
had more than 1 8 carries or 74 yards rushing in a game. 
Then again, the Tar Heels didn't have much choice after 
Draughn injured his left shoulder on a 9-yard gain on the 
Tar Heels' first offensive play and didn't return. 

It was the first meeting in 1 5 years in which both North 
Carolina and Duke had winning records, while it was one 
of the rare times in the rivalry that they weren't meeting 
to close the regular season. But it ended much like the rest 
have, with North Carolina winning for the 1 9th time in 
20 meetings. 

The game remained tight until the final period despite 
the fact Lewis was under constant pressure and didn't 
have time to wait for his receivers to get open. 

He completed 1 6 of 33 passes for 1 1 3 yards, snap- 
ping his streak of four straight 300-yard games. His 
biggest mistake came when he tried to force the ball to 
Conner Vernon late in the third quarter only to see Brown 
jump in front of the pass and return it 54 yards. That set 
up Barth's 41 -yard kick for a 9-6 lead on the final play of 
the third quarter.

Carolina 33, Miami 24 

November 14, 2009 

Kenan Stadium • Chapel Hill, N.C. 



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Kendric Bumey returned 
one of his three interceptions for a 77-yard touchdown 
and his third pick resulted in a bizarre fourth-quarter 
score that helped North Carolina beat No. 1 2 Miami 
33-24 on Saturday. 

Bumey fumbled his third interception on what looked 
to be a forward lateral, but Melvin Williams picked up 
the loose ball and ran the last 44 yards for a score. The 
touchdown held up on review after replays showed the 
ball slipping from Burney's hand, confirming a play that 
gave the Tar Heels (7-3, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) a 
30- 1 7 lead with about 9 1 /2 minutes left. 

Casey Barth kicked four field goals, including the 
clincher with 1 :57 left, to help North Carolina become 
bowl-eligible for the second straight year and give Butch 
Davis yet another win against his former program. It also 
was North Carolina's fifth consecutive win against ranked 
teams dating to last season. 

It was quite a way for the Tar Heels to close their home 
schedule. Their defense, which came in ranked fifth in the 
nation, allowed 435 yards but harassed Jacory Harris 
into a career-high four interceptions - with three going to 
Burney to end drives deep in North Carolina territory. 

Harris threw for 31 9 yards and a touchdown for the 
Hurricanes (7-3, 4-3), and Graig Cooper and Damien 
Berry each ran for scores. But they had to play catch-up 
almost the entire game, with North Carolina using 
Burney's long TD return to take a 20-7 halftime lead then 
getting a 32-yard field goal from Barth midway through 
the third. 

It was a familiar scene for the Tar Heels, who led Flor- 
ida State 24-6 in the third before faltering late and losing 
30-27. This time, North Carolina held on, putting together 
an 1 1 -play, 60-yard drive that took more than 5 minutes 
off the clock and set up Barth's final field goal - the kind of 
drive it couldn't manage against the Seminoles. 

Ryan Houston ran for 76 yards for the Tar Heels, 
including 33 on that final drive. Greg Little had a 29-yard 
TD catch from T.J. Yates in the first quarter. 

Burney finished with 170 interception return yards, a 
single-game ACC record, and became the first Tar Heel to 
have three picks in a game since Dre' Bly in 1 996.

Carolina 31, Boston College 13 

November 21, 2008 

Alumni Stadium • 

Chesnut Hill, Mass. 



BOSTON (AP) - Cam Thomas and Kendric Burney 
each had defensive touchdowns on Saturday as North 
Carolina scored three times in a span of 2 minutes, 19 
seconds to open a 21 -point lead and hold on to beat 
Boston College 31-13. 

North Carolina (8-3, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) 
forced six turnovers totaled to win its fourth consecutive 
game. 

Deunta Williams had three interceptions, returning 
one 39 yards to the BC 6 inch-line with 4:42 left in the 
game. Ryan Houston ran it in from there for his second 
touchdown of the game to make it 28-1 3. 

Boston College (7-4, 4-3) had an outside shot at 
winning the ACC division title, but that disappeared with 
a flurry of first-quarter turnovers by quarterback Dave 
Shinskie that helped spot the Tar Heels to a 21 -0 lead. The 
Eagles would have needed to win their last two games 
and hope Clemson lost to Virginia, which is in last place 
in the ACC Coastal Division. 

Shinskie fumbled away one ball that Thomas returned 
20 yards for a touchdown and then, two plays later, threw 
an interception that Burney ran in from 30 yards out. 
Shinskie had four interceptions in all; he also fumbled 
twice more when BC recovered, and another interception 
was negated by a pass interference call. 

Mike Marscovetra relieved him late in the fourth quar- 
ter; his first pass was picked off by Melvin Williams. 

T.J. Yates threw three interceptions of his own, includ- 
ing one in the end zone when Carolina was still sitting on 
a 21 -1 3 lead. But Roderick Rollins, who had been called 
for a late hit that moved the Tar Heels in position to score, 
outjumped the receiver and kept BC in the game. 

Three plays later, Deunta Williams grabbed his third 
interception of the game. 

Houston ran for 1 yard to make it 7-0, and the Eagles 
ran just two plays before Shinskie fumbled when was hit 
from behind by E.J. Wilson. Thomas, a defensive tackle, 
picked the bouncing ball up and rumbled the last 20 
yards, fighting off Harris near the goal line and scoring 
his first career touchdown to make it 14-0.

NC State 28, Carolina 27 

November 28, 2008 

Carter Finley Stadium • 

Raleigh, N.C. 



RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Russell Wilson threw four touch- 
down passes and Alan-Michael Cash blocked a field goal 
with about 5 minutes left to help North Carolina State 
rally past No. 23 North Carolina 28-27. 

Wilson connected twice with Owen Spencer for scores, 
including the go-ahead 38-yard touchdown two plays into 
the fourth quarter that gave the Wolfpack [5-7, 2-6 ACC) 
a third straight win against its next-door neighbors and 
fiercest football rival. 

Wilson and the Wolfpack offense got off to a slug- 
gish start against a defense that has ranked among the 
nation's toughest all year. But the longer the game wore 
on, the better Wilson and his teammates got, until Wilson 
put N.C. State on top by lofting a pass over the middle 
to Spencer, who sprinted away from defender Da'Norris 
Searcy for the 28-27 lead with 14:31 to play. 

Wilson completed 20 of 27 passes for 259 yards, 
including a critical third-down strike to Spencer with about 
3 minutes left that moved the chains and allowed the 
Wolfpack to work on the clock while the Tar Heels - who 
burned their final timeout with 3: 1 6 left - could do nothing 
to stop them. 

North Carolina finally got the ball back at its 28-yard 
line after a fourth-down stop with 23 seconds left. T.J, 
Yates forced a pass to Erik Highsmith, and the throw went 
high and into the arms of Clem Johnson to seal the win. 

Yates threw two touchdown passes to Jheranie Boyd 
for the Tar Heels (8-4, 4-4), including a 70-yarder in the 
final minute of the first half, while Johnny White scored on 
a 40-yard run that helped North Carolina take a 24-1 4 
halftime lead. 

But the Tar Heels repeatedly cost themselves with penal- 
ties and a goal-line fumble by White that wiped out what 
should have been a first-quarter TD run. 

In fact, the Tar Heels had two penalties after driving in- 
side the 10 - one holding, one personal foul - that forced 
them to settle for field goals. Then there was a second- 
quarter touchdown drive by the Wolfpack in which North 
Carolina's defense was flagged twice for pass interference 
and once for roughing. 

North Carolina was penalized 10 times for 1 22 yards 
in the game.

2009 GAME REVIEWS 




Pittsburgh 19, Carolina 17 

December 26, 2009 

Bank of America Stadium 

Charlotte, N.C. 



CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Dion Lewis rushed for 
1 59 yards and a touchdown to pass Tony Dorset) as 
Pittsburgh's top freshman rusher, and Dan Hutchins kicked 
a 33-yard field goal with 52 seconds left to give the 1 7th- 
ranked Panthers a 19-17 win over North Carolina on 
Saturday in the Meineke Bowl. 

Winning 10 games for the first time since Dan Marino 
was the quarterback in 1981 , Pitt (10-3) overcame a 
disappointing loss to Cincinnati three weeks ago that cost 
it a Sugar Bowl berth and staged a late rally in front of a 
hostile crowd. 

Pitt converted on fourth down at its own 30 and took 
advantage of a key offsides penalty to set up Hutchins' 
fourth field goal. 

T.J. Yates threw two touchdown passes to Greg Little, 
but his incomplete pass on fourth-and-10 from his own 49 
with 6 seconds left sent the Tar Heels (8 5) to their second 
straight loss. 

Lewis surpassed Dorsett's freshman rushing record of 
1 ,686 yards in the first quarter and finished with 1 ,799, 
behind only Dorsett's 2,150 in his Heisman Trophy-win- 
ning, national championship season of 1976. 

Yates was 1 9 of 32 for 1 83 yards and an interception 
while Little caught seven passes for 87 yards and Ryan 
Houston rushed for 83 yards. 

But North Carolina's defense, which came in sixth in 
the nation overall and ninth against the run, struggled to 
contain the shifty Lewis. 

The matchup featured old coaching buddies who won 
a national championship and Super Bowl together. Pitt's 
Dave Wannstedt and Davis worked on Jimmy Johnson's 



staffs at Oklahoma Stale, Miami and the Dallas Cowboys 
Their careers then included NFL head coaching jobs 
before they returned to college. 

It took Wannstedt's big gamble to help Pitt end a two 
game losing streak after North Carolina took a 17-16 
lead late in the third quarter on Yates' second touchdown 
pass to Little 

Facing a fourth-and-1 from his own 30 with 6:36 left, 
Bill Stull got 3 yards on a quarterback keeper. 

Lewis was later stuffed on third down, leaving Warms! 
edt with another decision on fourth-and 2 from the North 
Carolina 30 with 1 :30 left. He brought out the field goal 
unit, but North Carolina's Cam Thomas jumped offsides, 
giving Pitt a first down. 

Lewis got 1 3 yards on the next play, and his 6-yard 
run into the middle of the field set it up for Hutchins and 
erased an earlier blunder. 

Lewis broke Dorsett's 36-year-old mark on a 24 yard 
run late in the first quarter that ended with him fumbling 
the ball through the end zone for a touchback when E.J. 
Wilson knocked the ball free. 

The shifty Lewis made up for it with a personal, 
three-play 45 yard drive that ended with an 1 1 -yard 
touchdown run that put Pitt ahead 10-7 early in the 
second quarter. 

The 5-foot 8 Lewis had eclipsed 100 yards by halftime, 
his 10th 100-yard game of the season and his eighth 
straight. Not bad for a lightly recruited player deemed too 
small by most of the major schools. 

North Carolina had to overcome its own turnover 
trouble. Erik Highsmith's fumble set up a Pitt field goal, 
and Yates was picked off by Dan Mason near the goal 
line in the second quarter. 

After missing from 40 yards on Pitt's opening drive, 
Hutchins kicked two 31 -yard field goals, the second giving 
the Panthers a 13-10 halftime lead. Hutchins kicked his 
school-record 22nd field goal early in the third quarter to

GEORGE BARCLAY, GUARD, 1934 

Barclay was Carolina's first football All-America. 
The 5-11, 185-pound guard and linebacker was 
a three-year standout for Chuck Collins and Carl 
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. 

ANDY BERSHAK, END, 1937 

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

STEVE MARONIC, TACKLE, 1938 

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

PAUL SEVERIN. END, 1939-40 

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

CHARLIE JUSTICE, 


HALFBACK, 


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

the College Football Hall of Fame, helped lead the Tar 
Heels to back-to-back New Year's Day bowl games in 
1949-50. 

years and also ranks as the Tar Heels' fourth-leading 
career scorer, eighth-leading rusher and 18th-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. 

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, 1948-49 



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, CENT ER, 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 GO LDST EI N, 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.

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.

McCauley shattered the Carolina and the Atlantic- 
Coast Conference record books with a dazzling 
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 1970. McCauley rushed for 279 yards and scored five touchdowns in a 59-42 win over the Blue 
Devils. 



RON RUSNAK, OFFENSIVE GUARD, 1972 

Rusnak 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, TIGHT 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. 
Barden was a repeat All-Atlantic Coast Conference 
selection in 1978 and 1979. Barden made nine career 
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. 



Ron Wooten won the Jacobs Blocking Trophy in 1 980 
as the ACC's best blocker. 




LAWRENCE TAYLOR, OUTSIDE 
LINEBACKER, 1980 



From midway in his junior season until the end of 
his senior year in 1980, Taylor dominated the loot- 
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 11-1 season. Taylor made the 
game-saving defensive plays against Texas Tech and 
Clemson. He was a runaway selection as ACC Player 
of 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 Carolina'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 Tar 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 Bay 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-America 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 sacks the following year. He was 
the only unanimous choice on the 1983 All-ACC 
team and is one of just three defensive linemen ever 
to make All-ACC for three straight years.

BRIAN BLADOS, OFFENSIVE T ACKLE, 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 WALKER, FREE SAFETY, 1993 

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.

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 
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 1 995 Carquest Bowl .

Year. Consensus All- 
Americas are those players

whose number has been retired. He died in an auto 
accident after his freshman year, stunning his team- 
mates and Coach Carl Snavely. Sutherland was 
named one of the Tar Heels' three captains for what 
would have been his sophomore season and Snavely 
worked to ensure that his number would be retired. 

CHARLIE JUSTICE *22 

One of the most famous and popular athletes in 
the history of the state. Justice was a consensus 
All-America and twice runner-up for the Heisman 
Trophy. During his four seasons, 1946-49. Carolina 
went to the Sugar Bowl twice and the Cotton Bowl 
once. A single-wing tailback, he still holds many 
of the school's total offense records. In addition, he 
was a sensational punter and kick returner. He was 
the 1948 National Player of the Year. 



ART WEINER "50 

An outstanding two way end from 1946 to 1949, 
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 



A star quarterback from 1964 to 1966 and the 
1965 ACC Player of the Year under Head Coach 
Jim Hickey. Talbott led the league in total offense 
and scoring that season. He had 318 yards of total 
offense in one game against Georgia, at the time a 
school record. 

DON MCCAULEY "23 



The ACC Player of the Year as a junior and senior 
and a consensus All-America in 1970. his final sea- 
son. McCauley was the first of Carolina's 23 backs 
to rush for 1 .000 yards. He twice led the ACC in 
rushing with 1 ,092 yards in 1969 and 1 .720 in 1970. 
That latter total at the time broke O.J. Simpson's 
single-season NCAA record. He also led the nation 
in all-purpose running as a senior and his 126 points 
that year still is the league record. 

RON RUSNAK "62 



An offensive guard on three bowl teams from 1970 
to 1972 who won unanimous All-America honors 
in his senior season. At 6-2. 220 pounds, Rusnak 
wasn't as big as some linemen, but had great tech- 
nique. He was the cornerstone 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 a 20-4 record. He won 
the Jacobs Blocking Trophy in 1972 as the best 
blocker in the ACC. 

KEN HUFF »68 



A three-year starter at offensive guard from 1972 to 
1974 and a consensus All- America as a senior. Huff 
was a dynamic blocker at 6-4 and 250 pounds. He 
was the key figure on the 1974 line which helped 
Carolina boast a pair of 1 ,000-yard backs and lead 
the ACC in total offense, rushing and scoring. Led 
by Huff, UNC accumulated 4,691 yards, at the time 
a school record. The Tar Heels were fifth nation- 
ally in total offense and ninth in scoring that season.

blocker in the Atlantic Coast Conference and was 
the third player selected overall in the 1974 NFL 
draft by the Baltimore Colts.

was the ACC Player of the Year as both a junior and 
senior. Voight is second in Carolina history in rush- 
ing with 3,971 yards and third in scoring with 254 
points. He had three 1 ,000-yard seasons and twice 
was the top ground-gainer in the ACC. In 1976 he 
scored 1 10 points and ran for 1 ,407 yards, including 
261 in his final game —a dramatic 39-38 shootout 
with Duke. 



DEE HARDISON "71 

A defensive tackle from 1974 to 1977 and a consen- 
sus 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, rushing 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

regarded as the greatest player of all time at that 
position. Taylor was a consensus All-America and 
the ACC Player of the Year in 1980. He had a 
Carolina-record 16 quarterback sacks that season 
for losses totaling 127 yards. Sparked by his play, 
the Tar Heels went 11-1 in 1980 and won the ACC 
championship.

A defensive lineman from 1980 to 1983 who was 
a consensus All-America as a senior. Also honored

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

All-ACC team three times. 

ETHA N HORTON «12

over Arkansas and was the MVP of the 1982 Sun 
Bowl.

A defensive end/tackle from 1992 to 1995 who was 
a consensus All- America and the ACC Defensive 
Player of the Year as a senior. Jones had 24 career 
quarterback sacks to break Lawrence Taylor's school 
record. A two-time first-team All-ACC selection,

tions and wins in the 1993 Peach and 1995 Carquest 
Bowls.

all-time leader in quarterback sacks. The Wendell.

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

became the first freshman defensive player in col- 
lege football history to earn consensus first-team 
All-America honors in 1996. When he repeated con- 
sensus honors in 1997, he became the first two-time 
consensus All-America in UNC football history. In 
1998, he set the all-time ACC record for intercep- 
tions with 20 and was named first-team All-America 
by the Walter Camp Foundation. Bly led the nation

HONORED JERSEYS 




Amos Lawrence is the only ACC player to rush for 
1 ,000 yards in four consecutive seasons. 



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. 

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 HO LDASH, «25 

While Carolina's football fortunes slipped in the 
years immediately following the Charlie Justice Era. 
Hoklash still received national attention for his out- 
standing play. A center on offense and linebacker on 
defense. Hoidash 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." 



CAROLINA'S ACC TOP 50 PLAYERS

Lawrence Taylor 

Mike Voight 




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 seven 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 1980 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 tic 
Tulane in 1939. two scoring catches against Perm 
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 

Mew 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 
I Charlie "Choo Choo" Justice 
^ }> - i years and produced one of the 
most controversial plays in bowl 
hi story. 
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 Hipped 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 Rauch. 

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

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

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

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

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

half, but could not score.

Charlie Justice had another 
| great day in the 1950 Cotton 

Jowl, but it just wasn't enough 
I as the Tar Heels fell to fifth- 
jranked Rice, 27-13. The Owls 
had a 9-1-0 record, while 
Carolina came in at 7-3 and was 
ranked 16th. 

Rice and Carolina played to 
a scoreless draw in the opening quarter, but Rice 
opened the scoring in the second quarter when quar- 
terback Tobin Rote hooked up with Billy Burkhalter 
for a 44-yard touchdown. Bobby Lantrip's three- 
yard run built a 14-0 halftime lead, and the Owls 
kept right on rolling i n the third quarter. 

On its second possession of the second half, 
Rice traveled 77 yards in six plays, capped by 
Rote's 17-yard scoring pass to "Froggie" Williams. 
Burkhalter made it 27-0 with a 12-yard fourth quar- 
ter score. 

The Tar Heels got two touchdowns in the final 
eight minutes. Justice hit Paul Rizzo for a two-yard 
touchdown pass and then Rizzo ran it in from two 
yards. 

Justice managed 59 yards rushing and another 63 
in the air, while Art Weiner led the Tar Heels with 
five receptions for 41 yards. Billy Hayes topped the 
UNC rushing attack with 107 yards on 19 carries. 

The 1950 Cotton Bowl marked the end of the 
"Choo-Choo" Justice era that began in 1946. The

three major bowl games.

secutive season. This lime, the

I Georgia Bulldogs 

The game produced a bowl 
lust — brothers coaching against 
each other. Bill Dooley led the 
far Heels and older brother Vince coached ihe 
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 31 -yard pass play from Andy Johnson to Roy 
Hunmcutt set up the Georgia touchdown. Jimmy 
Poulos. on the very next play following Hunnicutt's 
catch, took it in for a score from 25 yards. Poulos 
rushed for 161 yards on the afternoon and was 
named the Georgia MVP.

December 30, 1972 

Carolina capped an 11-1 sea- 
son in the 1972 Sun Bowl by 
I defeating Texas Tech. 32-28. 
I Quarterback Nick Vidnovic 
\ brought the Tar Heels from 
[behind with a late scoring drive 
| which he capped by tossing a 
13-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

Trailing 9-0. the Tar Heels 
rallied for the next 17 points and 
then held off a Michigan threat 
late in the game to post the first of Dick Crum's four 
consecutive bowl wins. 

Carolina had two chances early on to score first, 
but high winds knocked down a pair of Jeff Hayes 
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. 

Doug Paschal put the Heels on the board with a 
two-yard touchdown. Early in the third. Kupec engi- 
neered a 16-play. 97-yard touchdown drive which 
culminated in a 12-yard pass to Phil Farris. Hayes 
added a 32-yard field goal in the fourth for a 1 7-9 
UNC lead. 

Michigan, thwarted once already in the fourth 
when Lawrence Taylor scooped up a loose ball, did 
manage another Carter touchdown with 1:28 left, but 
the two-point conversion pass to Carter fell short. 

Kupec and Lawrence were named co-Most 
Valuable Players.

1981 Gator Bowl 

Jacksonville, Fla. 

Carolina 31, Arkansas 27 

December 28, 1981 




Kelvin Bryant rushed for 148 
; yards and Ethan Horton added 
] 44 to lead the Tar Heels to a 
3 1 -27 victory over Arkansas in 
\J[ the Gator Bowl. 

Bryant and Horton shared 
: Most Valuable Player honors. 
■ but it was a key defensive stop 
by seldom-used freshman Ronnie 
Snipes which saved the night 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 Ra/orbacks scored with 5:05 to play, recov- 
ered an onside kick and scored again with 2:44 
left. UNC punter Jeff Hayes took an intentional 
safety with 1:44 to play. That gave the ball back to 
Arkansas and set up Snipes' defensive gem.

1982 Sun Bowl 

El Paso, Texas 

Carolina 26, Texas 10 

December 25, 1982 



North Carolina scored the final 
23 points of the game in the final 
J quarter and held seventh-ranked 
: Texas to 48 total yards in the sec- 
ond half as the Tar Heels became 
the first ACC team to win four 
i consecutive bowl games. 

Ethan Horton was the offen- 
sive star of the game, rushing 
lor I 19 yards in the second half as Carolina won 
26-10. He replaced injured starter Kelvin Bryant, 
who totaled 45 yards before leaving the game with 
an injured ankle. 

Trailing 10-3 after three quarters, the Tar Heels 
vaulted into the lead via three consecutive field 
goals. Sophomore walk-on Rob Rogers, who had 
connected from 53 yards in the second quarter, hit a 
47-yard field goal with 14:51 to play to narrow the 
Texas lead to 10-6. Brooks Barwick was then suc- 
cessful from 24 and 42 yards, the latter putting the 
Heels into the lead at 12-10 with 4:56 left. 

Horton tacked on a three-yard touchdown with 
2:17 remaining and Mike Wilcher fell on a loose ball 
in the end zone for another touchdown with 1:35 to 
play. 

The defensive series of the game came five min- 
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 flurries and a wind-chill reading that 
hovered around 12 degrees.

1983 Peach Bowl 

Atlanta, Ga. 

Florida State 28, Carolina 3 

December 30, 1983 




Florida State scored the first 
two times it had the ball and pen- 
alties and turnovers cost the Tar 
Heels dearly, as the Seminoles 
whipped Carolina 28-3 in a mis- 
erably cold and half-empty Peach 
Bowl. 

Played before only 25,648 fans 
in low-20 degree temperatures, 
the Peach Bowl loss snapped the Tar Heels' con- 
secutive bowl- game winning streak at four. 

The Seminoles held the Tar Heels' running game 
to just 32 yards and three first downs. One thousand- 
yard rushers Ethan Horton and Tyrone Anthony 
were held to 30 and 27 yards, respectively. 

Florida State quarterback Eric Thomas, making 
his first start, connected with Weegie Thompson on 
touchdown passes on the 'Noles first two series. 

Midway through the second quarter, the Tar Heels 
fumbled away a punt at their own 16 and FSU con- 
verted via a 1-yard touchdown run. 

Carolina put up its only points of the day on 
Brooks Barwick's 36-yard field goal. 

The loss was the fourth in the final five games of 
the season and ended a season in which Carolina had 
been ranked third in the nation.

1986 Aloha Bowl 

Honolulu, Hawaii 

Arizona 30, Carolina 21 

December 27, 1986 





Arizona converted four North 
Carolina fumbles into 20 points 
and then held off a furious Tar 
Heel rally in the fourth quarter to 
win the 1986 Aloha Bowl, 30-21. 
Carolina dug itself a 30-0 hole 
anil 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 Starr 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 



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 Bucky 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.

Quarterback Brian Burgdorf 
I threw for two touchdowns and 
| ran for another to lead 1 8th- 
' ranked and defending national 
champion Alabama to a 24-10 
| victory over 1 lth-ranked 
Carolina in Outback Steakhouse 
I Gator Bowl. 

Corey Holliday caught nine 
passes for I 25 yards and was UNC's MVP. 

After a scoreless first period, Alabama took the 
lead on a 22-yard field goal by Michael Proctor. 
Carolina quarterback Jason Stanicek then led a sev- 
en-play. 80-yard touchdown drive in just 1 :36 to take 
the lead, 7-3. on the ensuing possession. Stanicek 
hit Holliday with completions of 29 and 22 yards 
and executed one of his trademark option pitches to 
freshman tailback Leon Johnson for an 18-yard gain. 
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 
on 25 carries. Carolina could only muster 40 total 
yards and four first downs in the second half.

completed 23 of 39 passes for 298 yards and two 
touchdowns. He set UNC bowl game records for 
completions and yards and tied the mark with two 
scoring tosses. He was 15 for 19 in the first half and 
completed 20 of 29 before a final desperation drive. 
Wide receivers Marcus Wall and Octavus Barnes 
were two more standouts for the Tar Heels. Wall 
was selected the game's Most Valuable Special 
Teams Player. He gave the Tar Heels a 24-21 lead in 
the fourth quarter when he returned a punt 82 yards 
for a touchdown. 

Barnes set UNC bowl game records for most 
catches and yards with nine receptions for 165 yards 
and one score. The 165 yards were also the most in 
Sun Bowl history. 

With Carolina up, 31-21, Texas quickly went on 
a 68-yard touchdown drive in only 2:38. On the 
next series, Texas took over at its own 32 and drove 
68 yards in 10 plays for the winning score. Holmes 
carried the last three plays on the drive for nine, two 
and finally the five yard touchdown run.

Miami, Fla. 

Carolina 20, Arkansas 10 

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, 20-10, in the 
Carquest Bowl. 

Johnson's 195-yard effort 
lopped 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 lor 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 Hank into the end /one. 

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.

Carolina 42, Virginia Tech 3 

January 1, 1998 




Chris Keldorf threw for 
• 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 I I- 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.

December 19, 1998 




Ronald Curry rushed for a sea- 
son-high 43 yards and a touch- 
down, punter Brian Schmitz was 
outstanding despite windy condi- 
ions and the Tar Heel defense 
id not allow a TD in the last 59 
minutes as Carolina defeated San 
Diego State, 20-13. 

Curry, the game's Most 
Valuable Offensive Player, gave Carolina the lead 
for good with a 48-yard touchdown run on the final 
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

BOWL GAME RECAPS 




2004 Continental Tire Bowl 

Charlotte, IM.C. 

Boston College 37, Carolina 24 

December 30, 2004 

Kicker Ryan Ohliger scored 
on a 21 -yard fake field goal run 
to seal Boston College's 37-24 
victory 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 handoff 
from holder Matt Ryan and raced into the end zone, 
breaking a tackle along the way, for a 34-24 lead 
with 10:32 to play. Before leaving, Peterson went 
24-of-33 for 236 yards and two touchdowns. 

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

North Carolina quarterback Dalian Durant threw 
for 260 yards and three TDs in his final game as 
a Tar Heel. He finished his storied career with 5 I 
school records, including all major passing and total 
offense records. 

Wide receiver Derelle Mitchell caught seven 
passes for 116 yards.

2008 Meineke Car Care Bowl 

Charlotte, IM.C. 

West Virginia 31, Carolina 30 

December 27, 2008 

Pat White threw for 332 
yards, including a 20-yard touch- 
| down pass to Alric Arnett mid- 
l way through the fourth quarter 
I to send West Virginia to a 3 1-30 
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 Lazear with under 2 minutes left 
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. 

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 7:14 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.

2009 Meineke Car Care Bowl 

Charlotte, IM.C. 

Pittsburgh 19, Carolina 17 

December 26, 2009 




Dion Lewis rushed for 159 
.yards and a touchdown, and Dan 
Hutchins kicked a 33-yard field 
: goal with 52 seconds left to give 
the 1 7th-ranked Panthers a 19-17 
I win over North Carolina on 
Saturday in the Meineke Bowl. 
Winning 10 games for the 
first time since Dan Marino was the quarterback in 
1981. Pitt (10-3) converted on fourth down at its 
own 30 and took advantage of a key offsides penalty 
to set up Hutchins' fourth field goal. 

T.J. Yates threw two touchdown passes to Greg 
Little, but his incomplete pass on fourth-and-10 from 
his own 49 with 6 seconds left sent the Tar Heels 
(8-5) to their second straight bowl loss. 

Yates was 19 of 32 for 183 yards and an inter- 
ception while Little caught seven passes for 87 yards 
and Ryan Houston rushed for 83 yards. 

But North Carolina's defense, which came in 
sixth in the nation overall and ninth against the run, 
struggled to contain the shifty Lewis. 

The matchup featured old coaching buddies 
who won a national championship and Super Bowl 
together. Pitt's Dave Wannstedt and Davis worked 
on Jimmy Johnson's staffs at Oklahoma State, 
Miami and the Dallas Cowboys. Their careers 
then included NFL head coaching jobs before they 
returned to college. 

It took Wannstedt's big gamble to help Pitt end a 
two-game losing streak after North Carolina took a 
17-16 lead late in the third quarter on Yates' second 
touchdown pass to Little.

MEDIA INFORMATION 



ATHLETIC COMMUNICATIONS 



Football media services are coordinated by Director 
of Football Communications Kevin Best and Assistant 
Athletic Communications Director Bobby Hundley. 
Please direct interview, information and photo requests 
to Best or Hundley. Best's office is located on the fourth 
floor of the Kenan Football Center. The main Athletic 
Communications Office is located on the street level of the 
Koury Natatorium, adjacent to the Dean E. Smith Center 
and less than one mile from Kenan Stadium. 



CREDENTIALS 



Requests for working press credentials at Carolina 
home football games should be made in writing on 
station/newspaper/magazine letterhead to Associate 
A.D. for Communications Steve Kirschner. The mailing 
address is P.O. Box 2126, Chapel Hill, N.C. 27515. 
Requests may be sent via fax (91 9-962-061 2) or e-mail 
(stevekirschner@unc.edu), but all requests should be sent 
so they reach the Athletic Communications Office at least 
one week prior to the game. 

Credentials will be mailed or they may be picked up 
before 5 p.m. on Friday at the Athletic Communications 
Office. Those credentials not picked up by 5 p.m. on 
Friday will be left for Saturday pickup at Kenan Stadium 
Will Call at Gate 6. Will Call opens two hours prior to 
kickoff and will be staffed through the third quarter. 

SIDELINE POLICY 

Photographers will not be allowed on the sidelines 
without a UNC-issued photographer's vest. Vests will be 
distributed in the press box beginning 90 minutes prior 
to kickoff. Each photographer must sign in for his/her 
own vest. Under NCAA and Atlantic Coast Conference 
guidelines, photographers are not allowed between the 
25-yard lines and must remain outside the restraining 
lines surrounding the field. Credential holders not work- 
ing will be asked to leave the sidelines. A representative 
of the Athletic Communications Office will be on the field 
to handle any questions and serve as field liaison to press 
box officials. We ask, for the safety of others, that equip- 
ment not be left unattended on the sidelines. If you are 
shooting with a tripod, please keep a safe distance from 
the playing field. 

GAME DAY PARKING 

Requests for parking passes should be made well in 
advance to Steve Kirschner. Single-game parking passes 
will be mailed. Parking is located either in the Rams 
Head Deck on Ridge Road or the Dogwood Deck at the 
corner of East and Manning Drive. 

POSTGAME INTERVIEWS 

Following a brief cooling-off period, requested UNC 
players will head directly to the interview area on the fifth 
floor of Kenan Football Center for a 20-25 minute inter- 
view period. The Tar Heels' locker room is closed. 

Representatives from the Communications Office will 
take player requests from the media during the fourth 
quarter. Local television media who are on the field 
during the game should make player requests prior to 
the end of the game to the on-field Communications rep- 
resentative. 

Head coach Butch Davis will conduct a short interview 
with Woody Durham for the Tar Heel Sports Network's 
live broadcast while the players are in the interview area. 
Davis will begin his postgame press conference after the 
player interviews are completed. 

After night games, Davis and the players will be avail- 
able simultaneously due to deadline demands. Quotes 
will be gathered from both Davis and several players for 
distribution in the press box. Away game procedures will 
vary, depending on available facilities. 

Please note: Davis is contractually obligated to do a 
short postgame interview with the Tar Heel Sports Radio 



Network. After night games, great care will be taken to 
get Davis to the general media as quickly as possible. We 
understand everyone has deadline pressures after late 
games and will do our best to provide access to Davis as 
quickly as possible. 

INTERNET AVAILABILITY 

Kenan Stadium's press box has wireless capability. 
Media with wireless capability should be able to connect 
to the internet by turning on their computers and filling 
out the on-line form. 

PHONES 

Several phones will be available for media use. All 
long distance calls must be by credit card, collect or billed 
to a third number. Anyone desiring a private phone 
should contact Bell South at least two weeks prior to the 
game. If you are calling from within the 919 area code, 
dial 780-2800. However, if you are calling from outside 
the 919 area code, then you must dial 1-800-919-2800. 

Phone lines and ethernet access are available for 
use by photographers only in the main press area. 
UNC Director of Photography Jeffrey Camarati coordi- 
nates the photographer's work area. 

Note: The on-campus building number for the press 
box at Kenan Stadium, for which you will be asked, is 
#51 9. List Steve Kirschner as the stadium contact for plac- 
ing the phone. 

INTERVIEWS WITH HEAD C OACH BUTCH _DAV|S 

Butch Davis will meet with the media at 1 1 :30 a.m. 
each Monday prior to a game for approximately 30 min- 
utes. A podcast of Davis's Monday press conference will 
be available on TarHeelBlue.com later that afternoon. 

Davis is also available on the weekly ACC 
Teleconference on Wednesdays. Contact the ACC or Best 
for the time and phone number. 

All other interviews should be arranged through the 
communications office. 

PLAYE R INTERVIEWS 

All player interviews should be arranged through Kevin 
Best or Bobby Hundley. Players have been instructed not 
to grant an interview request unless they have been set up 
in this manner. The interviews will generally be conducted 
prior to the start of football practice at Kenan Football 
Center. All interviews are to be conducted on Tuesday, 
Wednesday or Thursday. 

Telephone interviews are conducted at the player's con- 
venience. Usually they are handled by players returning 
calls before practice. No home numbers for players will 
be given out and players have been told not to accept 
calls from anyone asking football related questions. 

Please do not show up and wait for players unan- 
nounced on campus, at players' housing or the 
Football Center. The players have been instructed to 
politely decline the request and refer the person to the 
Communications Office. 

Players may do taped radio interviews but will not be 
available for live call-in radio shows. 

Note: Due to the overwhelming number of all-sports 
radio talk stations, players will generally not be available 
to appear on these shows. Hometown stations, stations in 
that week's opponent's market or national shows may be 
accommodated. 

PRACTICE COVERAGE 

Subject to change, Carolina will practice each 
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday beginning at 3:30 
p.m. on the practice fields located directly across the 
street from the baseball stadium and adjacent to the 
UNC School of Law. Players and select assistant coaches 
are available to meet with the media before practice on 
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Practice will be 
open for 30 minutes each Tuesday.

the Learfield umbrella. Among those for which Learfield also owns the rights are Alabama. 
Clemson, Colorado. Oklahoma, Indiana. Miami (Fla.), Missouri and Wisconsin. 

"Our goal is to continue and add to the tremendous tradition and fan following at 
Carolina," says Gary Sobba, the 10-year General Manager for Tar Heel Sports Properties. 

"I have worked on various college campuses for more than 20 years." adds Sobba, "and 
if there is a better athletic program in the country than this one, I don't know where it is." 

Tar Heel Sports Properties is in its 16th year as UNC's multimedia rights holder. All 
Carolina fans have heard of the Tar Heel Sports Network, which broadcasts the play-by- 
play of football and basketball games, but that is only one facet of the operation. 

Tar Heel Sports Properties is a full-service agency overseeing production and sales of all 
the University of North Carolina's football and basketball entities including television, print 
products, internet and radio.

athletics. 

Durham was inducted into the North Carolina Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame

TAR HEEL TRADITIONS 



WHY TAR HEELS? 



University of North Carolina athletic teams are known 
as the Tar Heels because North Carolina is "The Tar Heel 
State." 

One legend has the nickname being applied to the 
state's residents as long ago as the Revolutionary War. 
According to this story, the troops of British General 
Cornwallis were fording what is now known as the Tar 
River between Rocky Mount and Battleboro when they 
discovered that tar had been dumped into the stream to 
impede their crossing. When they finally got across the 
river they found their feet completely black with tar. Their 
observation that anyone who waded North Carolina 
rivers would acquire tar heels led to the nickname first 
being used. 

Others say the nickname was acquired during the 
Civil War. During one of that war's fiercest battles a col- 
umn supporting North Carolina troops was driven from 
the field. After the battle, the North Carolinians who 
had successfully fought it out alone, happened to meet 
the regiment which had fled to safety and were greeted 
with the question, "Any more tar down in the Old North 
State, boys?" 

"No, not a bit," shot back one of the North Carolina 
soldiers. "Old Jeffs bought it all up," he went on, refer- 
ring to Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. 

"Is that so? What's he going to do with it?" 

"He's going to put it on you'ns heels to make you 
stick better in the next fight." 

Upon hearing of the incident, Robert E. Lee smiled 
and said to a fellow officer, "God bless the Tar Heel 
boys." 

A letter found in 1 991 by State Archivist David Olson 
lends credence to another more direct theory. A letter 
from Maj. Joseph Engelhard describes a fight involving 
men from North Carolina in which Lee was heard to 
have said, "There they stand as if they have tar on their 
heels." 

The letter, dated August 24, 1 864, told the tale of a 
battle on the outskirts of Petersburg, Va. Engelhard was 
elected secretary of state for North Carolina in 1 876. 

RAM MASCOT 

Since Carolina's nickname is Tar Heels, it might seem 
strange to have a ram as a mascot. It is. But, there is a 
good explanation. It's offered by Vic Huggins, Carolina's 
head cheerleader back in 1 924. 

"In 1924 school spirit was at a peak," Huggins once 
explained. "But something seemed to be missing. One 
day it hit me. Georgia had a bulldog for a mascot and 
State a wolf. What Carolina needed was a symbol." 

Two years earlier the Tar Heels had posted a brilliant 
9-1 record. The star of that 1 922 team was a bruising 
fullback named Jack Merritt. Merritt was nicknamed 
"the battering ram" for the way he plunged into lines. It 
seemed natural to Huggins to link a mascot with Merritt's 
nickname. 

"Charlie Woollen, the athletic business manager at 
that time, agreed with the idea and gave us $25 to pur- 
chase a fitting mascot," said Huggins. 

Rameses the First was shipped in from Texas, arriv- 
ing just in time to be introduced at a pep rally before the 
VMI game. Complete with 
a monogram blanket on 
his back, Rameses helped 
make the pep rally one of 
the school's greatest. 

Then the ram was taken 
to Emerson Field where 
Carolina was an underdog 
to a strong VMI team. But, 
for three quarters the Tar 
Heels battled the visitors to 
a scoreless tie. 

Late in the fourth period 
Carolina's Bunn Hackney 
was called upon to attempt 
a field goal. Before taking 
the field he stopped to rub 
Rameses' head for good 
luck. 

Seconds later Hackney's 
30-yard dropkick sailed 




between the goalposts, 
giving the Tar Heels a 3-0 
victory and a legendary 
mascot. 

OLD WE L L WALK 

On game days, the 
North Carolina footba 
team travels from the team 
hotel and is dropped off 
in the center of campus at 
the Old Well, one of the 
University's most recog- 
nized landmarks. From 
there, the Tar Heels walk 
from the Old Well through 
the main quad of cam- 
pus and into the Kenan 
Football Center. The Old 
Well Walk, which began 
in 2001 , is packed each 
Saturday with thousands 
of cheering fans, hoping 
to catch a glimpse of their 
favorite player or coach. 
The Old Well Walk begins 
approximately two and a 
half hours prior to kickoff of 
each game 

SCHOOL COLORS 

The adoption of light 
blue and white as UNC's 
colors dates back to the 
1 9th Century. When the 
University reopened fol- 
lowing the Civil War, 
most social activities were 
directed by two literary 
societies, the Dialectic and 
Philanthropic. The officio 
color of the Di was light 
blue and that of the Phi 
white. 

On public occasions the 
student officers, marshals and ball managers were chosen 
equally from the membership of the two societies. It had 
long been the custom of each society for its members to 
wear its color on such occasions. However, the chief 
marshal and chief ball manager, one from the Di and the 
other from the Phi, wore combination light blue and white 
regalias and rosettes signifying that they represented the 
whole student body. 

So it seemed only natural for the fans to adorn 
themselves with the same combination as that used by 
the chief marshals and ball managers, colors which rep- 
resented not membership in a society, but a University 
student body.
