We face power-house UNC on the pitch today. This is a bit of a rebuilding year for us, while the 19-time national champ Tar Heals have 11 returning starters (I think that is all of them). Cross your fingers, this may be ugly.

JTrain practiced yesterday, no pads, no contact, but still suffers from headaches from his August 13th injury. 2 weeks and he still has headaches, get he kid an MRI.
My boy JC (Jason Carter) added to the reasons why NFL pre-season games are stupid when he popped his ACL late in the fourth. He is dunzo, cut Carolina head coach John Fox said "...if he works like (he did this year) he'll be back next year."

News) to doubtful (HChron) for the season opener on Saturday. The big
man suffered a 'stinger' (something short of a concusion) a week or so
ago and has not practiced since. Shermi has a 'major concern' with
his absence in conditioning drills, for obvious reasons. Backup Nick
LaMantia is nursing a sprained but should be ready to take JTrain's
spot against Arkansas State.

Highlights came from Goodson and true Freshman running back Cyrus Gray. "Cyrus had the long catch on the inside seam route" and "Goodson finished very well today, which was good to see coming off that [hamstring] injury."
Mr. QB crush himself Mi Bennett managed to dust himself off after being declared academically ineligible for last year's Alamo Bowl. Shermi is "counting on Michael Bennett big-time" this year. Welcome back. Easy on the late hits.

Goodson returned to practice, but looked like crap ('rusty').
Lane sat out with a 'stinger'. I am still annoyes with him. His
"drink less alcohol" diet is both underwelmimg and disturbing.
Our men's basketball scheduel is still not out. Previously, I thought
we were waiting on a tourney invite, which was wrong. We seem to have
accepted a bid to the South Padre Invitational months ago. Now I
think a team bailed on us and we are looking for someone willing to
travel to the BCS.

With Mike Goodson and this pulled hammy watching from the sidelines--- sans cell phone, camera, and audio/video equipment --- Shermi has gotten a good look at true-freshman running back Cyrus Gray, and is impressed...ish, "He’s got to clean up some things he’s making mistakes on. You’ve got to weigh that with his productivity on the other stuff. But I’m excited about him. He’s doing a nice job." Lane has also been getting some snaps at his old stop in Mike's absence, but the coaches still think he is still too fat.
Sophomore wide receiver Roger Holland, who caught four passes for 52 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown reception against Kansas, will redshirt this season due to a concussion he suffered in the spring. Shermi don't "mess around with head injuries."
After all the new mascot brouhaha, hubbub, scuttlebutt, and kerfluffle, we picked another female collie. Good job big search team. My vote was for a mutt, I guess I am just old-school.

"...exceeded expectations we could have only imagined" sounds so awkward.

Our men's basketball schedule is still MIA, but LSU posted our date with the Tigers --- Dec. 20th.
