The game of football still comes down to blocking and tackling, but getting there today is a road paved with quarks and gigabytes, MP3 players and laptop computers, pixels and binary numbers. Technology plays a major role today in scouting, game-planning, creating playbooks, teaching, recruiting, training and providing medical treatment. One of the trainers even carries a beeper connected to the National Weather Service in Wichita, Kan., which alerts him to thunderstorm activity within 10 miles of campus. (Tar Heel Blue)
