Thirteen Tar Heels Stuck In North Carolina

Thirteen UNC players won’t play in the 18th-ranked Tar Heels’ opener against No. 21 LSU in Atlanta on Saturday amid an ongoing NCAA investigation.

The school said Friday that six players—defensive ends Robert Quinn and Michael McAdoo, cornerbacks Kendric Burney and Charles Brown, receiver Greg Little and suspended defensive tackle Marvin Austin—were declared ineligible for the opener for “violating school and/or NCAA rules.”

Another six players—top tailbacks Shaun Draughn and Ryan Houston; safeties Brian Gupton, Da’Norris Searcy and Jonathan Smith; and defensive end Linwan Euwell—are being held out of the game during the ongoing investigation.

In addition, North Carolina said three unnamed players are still in jeopardy of missing the game and didn’t travel with the team when it left Chapel Hill on Friday morning. The school is working with the NCAA to determine their status for the game.

What he said: “We are disappointed the players’ choices have denied them the opportunity to compete alongside their teammates and represent the University of North Carolina,” coach Butch Davis said in a statement. “Our coaches and players have a tremendous challenge this weekend, and despite these circumstances, our team will be excited to face LSU.”

What he meant: #&$%#%@#% Marvin!!! #&$%#%@#% Greg!!! (repeat with different player's name)
