Bethel: Jay Smith Makes Accusation of Mental Instability

Last weekend, I learned that Jay Smith had emailed the Provost to report that I was demonstrating symptoms of mental instability. Keep in mind that Smith, as a professor, is responsible for teaching and exemplifying critical thinking and civil debate. Yet, when I exposed his dishonesty and revealed the shoddiness of his position, he resorted to a threat of retaliation and then to an accusation of mental instability. (Coaching the Mind)

UNC Running Backs: "The Tightest Group"

They compete for snaps, jockeying for position every day in practice in search of the glory inherit with their trade. In many circles, "every man for himself" might apply. But not these guys. Not these young men. UNC's foursome in the backfield is indeed a single group. They are four parts - Romar Morris, T.J. Logan, Khris Francis and Elijah Hood - but together they are one.

It didn't take Steelers defensive end Cam Thomas long to adjust to a scheme that demands he sacrifice numbers for results. “We're not thinking in terms of making plays but be the reason why others make plays,” Thomas said Monday.

Quotes and Notes from Camp: Offensive Line and QB Competition

Landon Turner took snaps at center this morning, but don’t expect that to indicate a major shakeup on the offensive line. It’s a just-in-case precaution, a if-the-worst-should-happen contingency plan. “It’s good to be versatile as an offensive lineman and as far as my career, I’m an interior guy, so I need to be able to play guard and center,” Turner said. (Carolina Blue)

Tommy Hibbard averaged 43 yards a punt, and the punt team was 10th in the country in net punting at 40.25. (GoHeels.com)
