Letter from Ryan Switzer

I found myself here at Carolina. I found my future wife. I found out what it takes to put someone’s happiness before my own, and I set the baseline for the man that I want to be down the road.

Versatility never is a bad thing in the NFL, and Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron has shown a flash of having a wider repertoire. Ebron’s impressive touchdown run on a goal-line sweep last weekend might have been the highlight of a burgeoning new skill set. (Detroit Free Press)

Five With Fedora: The NC State Game

What was mood in the locker room after the game when you first walked in, and what were your emotions? Larry Fedora: “It was extremely somber. There were some guys that were emotionally having a really hard time. Winning this game meant a lot to them, and their teammates really wanted to get it done for these seniors. Not being able to do that was hard to take." (GoHeels.com)

Weekly N.C. Football Coaching Grades

Larry Fedora, UNC, F: With losses to Duke and State to wind up their ACC schedule, the Tar Heels (8-4, 5-3) technically crash-landed and definitely underachieved overall. Against the Wolfpack, the offensive front had alarming difficulty handling a basic four-man pass rush while the defensive front got controlled in the first and fourth quarters. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Chansky’s Notebook: Taking The Best Shots

The Tar Heels are now taking opponents’ best shots on the football field as they have been on the basketball court for years. When you can beat your arch rival, it can save a season.

His forehead was red from the pressure of his helmet, and his legs ached from the weight of his performance — 13 catches for 171 yards, more than his UNC teammates combined. But the sharpest pain was saying goodbye. “Regardless of how you play individually, you want to go out on the right note." (Daily Tar Heel)

ACC Football Week 13 Power Rankings

T-5. North Carolina. As you can see, we ran into some trouble building a consensus here. North Carolina beat Miami and Pittsburgh, but the Tar Heels ended the regular season with consecutive disappointing losses to Duke and NC State, when the Coastal Division was there for the taking. (ESPN.com)

Butch Davis will bring star power to Conference USA

As he searched for work with major college football programs after being fired as North Carolina’s head coach in 2011, Butch Davis discovered he was virtually unemployable. It didn’t matter that he wasn’t implicated in the NCAA violations that occurred in Chapel Hill. It left him with baggage that, in spite of his enormous talent, made him damaged goods for most big-time schools. (The Virginian-Pilot)

Extra Points: Imperfect Storm

The loss to State and the one two weeks ago to Duke marks the first time since 2003 the Tar Heels have lost to their Triangle-area rivals in the same year. Before that, you have to go back to 1988-89 when coaches Dick Sheridan at State and Steve Spurrier at Duke held sway over the tumultuous early days of the Mack Brown era to find that double-dose of misery.
