Quote of the Day

"I messed up a great situation.  It was my fault."

-- former Tar Heel and projected NFL first round draft pick Marvin Austin #99 expressing regret for his role in an NCAA investigation that tarnished UNC’s football program that carried ACC championship hopes last summer.  That said, Austin, in Orlando for the East-West Shrine game and looking to impress pro scouts as he hasn’t played a down of football in over a year, refused to discuss agent-funded trips to Miami, any improper gifts he took or his relationships with former UNC assistant coach John Blake or agent Gary Wichard.

Other ACC players in the game: Mario Butler CB Georgia Tech,  Graig Cooper RB Miami, Christian Hairston OT Clemson, Tyrod Taylor QB Virginia Tech, Demarcus Van Dyke CB Miami, Beau Warren Center Virginia Tech and Da'rel Scott RB Maryland.

Kickoff is at  4:00 pm Eastern.
