UNC defense planning to ’Pack a punch

The goal line stand. Everybody remembers it. The image of former N.C. State tailback T.A. McLendon slamming into the solid 6-foot-6, 297-pound wall better known as North Carolina defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell to seal the 30-24 UNC victory last season still rests in the mental chest of Tar Heel football memories. But even with the rivalry game between the Tar Heels and Wolfpack on the horizon, Mitchell and his teammates have one thing in mind — and it has nothing to do with last year’s epic play. “I feel safe in saying that all our guys’ minds are focused on making N.C. State look horrible,” Mitchell said with a straight face. (Daily Tar Heel)
