“We’re working hard on a number of scenarios and I would repeat what I’ve said before: I’m hopeful we’ll get some movement in some cases, but I just cannot guarantee it at this time,” Baddour said.
The 13 players—including potential NFL draft prospects Robert Quinn, Marvin Austin, Kendric Burney and Deunta Williams from a talented defense— didn’t travel with the team to face LSU in Atlanta last week due to the inquiry into agent-related benefits and possible academic misconduct.
The Tar Heels nearly rallied from a 20-point deficit in the fourth quarter, driving all the way to the LSU 6 in the final seconds before missing on two passes into the end zone in the 30-24 loss.
The school has been conferring steadily with the NCAA about the players’ status over the past two weeks. North Carolina is off this week, giving the school more time to get answers.
SUPER BANNER. The banners representing achievements of the New Orleans Saints, including the newly unveiled 2009 Super Bowl World Champions banner, hang above the fans in the upper deck during the Saints game against the Minnesota Vikings at Louisiana Superdome on September 9, 2010 in New Orleans, Louisiana. We'd like to pick on 'em for having four crummy banners, but after all they've been through it just ain't right... (Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty Images)

The Midshipmen (0-1) held the ball for nearly 19 minutes longer than Maryland (1-0) and outgained the Terrapins by more than 200 yards. But in a game influenced by untimely turnovers and huge penalties, the outcome was decided on a gritty goal-line stand.
Trailing 17-14 with a fourth down at the 1, Navy decided to go for the win. Dobbs took the snap, went to his left and was met by Tate, who would not relent to the momentum Dobbs brought to the line.
Earlier in the drive, Dobbs was stopped on a third-and-8. But Maryland's Adrian Moten was flagged for grabbing the facemask on the play, and the Midshipmen advanced until Tate's big play.
The game might have been a rout had Navy not failed to score on four different forays inside the Maryland 20. The Mids didn't punt until early in the fourth quarter.
