Rameses' owner fights for his life

Farmer Rob Hogan is probably best known for being the caretaker of Rameses XVIII, UNC-Chapel Hill's latest in a long line of football mascots who lived at the Carrboro farm. Hogan, 54, was critically injured Sept. 15 when he missed a step on his tractor, landing hard on his left leg. The accident also kept Rameses from attending UNC's first home game of the season. It's unlikely the ram or Hogan will be at any games this year. (Raleigh News & Observer)
