Extra Points: A Look At the Spring Petri Dish

Spring football practice is a five-week compendium of introductions, auditions, experiments and evolution. It's an organized three-ring circus with a new coach here, emerging red-shirt freshmen and sophomores there, players tending to injuries on the sidelines and neophytes sweating and grunting in an effort to be noticed. The results of Carolina's 2008 spring Petri dish will be on display Saturday when the Tar Heels present their Spring Showcase exhibition. (Tar Heel Blue)
