Sunday Practice Notes

Sunday's practice was the first of the season in half pads. After two days of no contact, players were ready for some hitting. "With the half pads, you don't have to slow down," cornerback Bryan Bethea said. "When we go without pads you always have to make sure you don't bump into anybody and hurt somebody. Once you put the shoulder pads on, we feel like it's all go." (Tar Heel Blue)
