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)
Wake Forest gained 509 total yards, rushed for 415 and led 21-0 before allowing the outmanned Blue Hose a first down.

So…Is it the hair, the tight jersey, the loud music, the improperly tined windows? What, what, what?
According to ACC Now, the Tar Heel tackle, who has been interviewed as part of the NCAA's investigation into possible improper benefits provided to players by sports agents, was suspended indefinitely Wednesday for violating team rules and neglecting his responsibilities to the team.
That means the flamboyant star senior who hasn’t cut his hair in four years will not travel to Atlanta for UNC's season opener against No. 21 LSU in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff on Saturday. And sometime before the 18th-ranked Tar Heels board the team the bus at 9:30 a.m. Friday, the school plans to announce who else won't be making the trip, athletic director Dick Baddour said.
Basketball coach Roy Williams has since announced that none of this players are involved in any way with the tutor or tutoring in question.

So happy, he’s imitating former Nat Elija Dukes, hardly the picture of stability. If Morgan keeps it up, he could end up just like Dukes – out of MLB.

For the first time in more than 100 years, the Virginia Tech Hokies will wear black when they suit up in the Nike Pro Combat System of Dress for Monday night’s game against Boise State at FedExField.
Jersey numbering, outlined in gray, is rendered in burnt orange with a Chicago maroon fade-in to form an all-over technology-inspired pattern – a nod to Virginia Tech’s engineering identity. The circuit-board pattern is reprised in a shoulder graphic and in bands running down the sides of the pants. The wide stripe also bisects the matte black helmet. Corresponding footwear in orange and black carries the same print to complete the uniform.
