Rameses XVII, the blue-horned ram who led the UNC Chapel Hill football team onto the field at Kenan Stadium for the past five years, died Thursday of complications from an injury he suffered in an encounter with his own son. Rameses was 8. His son Pablo, 3, will take the name Rameses XVIII and succeed his father as the Carolina mascot, said keeper Rob Hogan. (Raleigh News & Observer)
