North Carolina

Tar Heel football meeting was routine

Updated July 21, 2010

The Tar Heel football team held their annual summer meeting Tuesday. It's the first time the team has been together since the NCAA investigation began.

The closed-door meeting lasted just over an hour. Afterward, players and coaches had nothing to say to the media.

Kevin Best, spokesman for the UNC football team, told WRAL's Jason Jennings that the summer meeting was routine.

Best said the players were instructed not to talk to the press about the on-going NCAA investigation of the program. Athletic Director Dick Baddour will be the only spokesman on that matter, Best said, but the university will not comment until the investigation is over.

The players listened to a motivational speaker for the first hour and then for the next 10 minutes listened to announcements. They were also told to be smart with what they say, on Twitter and in general in light of the investigation.

Head Coach Butch Davis is scheduled to attend the Pigskin Preview on Thursday in Durham. His comments and those of other attendees will be carried live on 99.9 The Fan ESPN Radio and on WRALSportsFan.com.

He will also be available at the ACC Kickoff in Greensboro on July 25-26 along with quarterback T.J. Yates and defensive end Robert Quinn. WRAL-TV, The Fan and WRALSportsFan.com will have team coverage of the kickoff Sunday and Monday.

    What is the real definition of ROUTINE?

    If Carolina's meeting was truly about their normal summer meeting, then I wonder what could be coming down the road. It should make some good reading.

    I am sorry. Y'all look good in Duke Blue in Kenan Stadium. Noone looks better than Biutch himself. He recognized that powder blue wasn't very intimidating, he tried to change it. Tee hee hee,

    The Standards of which you speak are the highest. But let's compare Cow College's with UNC's... View More

    I am only referring to the standards most unc fans refer too. Cow College only reflects and refers to your ignorance.

    The Standards of which you speak are the highest. But let's compare Cow College's with UNC's graduation rate, championships in multiple, multiple sports, consistent top ten rankings of numerous of our colleges as well. As I said before, this is a small bump in the road which in the grand scheme of things will be insignificant.

    Having said that, I am disappointed at the greed of one or two players of any team who put themselves above their teammates most of whom will never play at the professional level. Frankly, I wish we could contain this sort of thing to the SEC who seems to be so good at it.....

    So if "chewing the cud" over and over again about your nemesis in every sport have at it.....it's getting more and more humorous.....

    I would also fire him for having so many ncaa infractions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would fire my coach immediately for wearing my competitors colors.

  • wolfbitesyourheels Jul 21, 10:56 p.m.

    And please do not change our football colors to duke blue!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh Butch, you are my dream coach. You have never done anything wrong. You can lead the heels on to a great season. please don't let this get you down.

    I agree, if you were at NCSU, you would deserve NCAA Punishment, but you are a tarheel. you are a winner, keep your chin up, don't feel down. we are the tarheels, the ncaa will respect what we have done. We will be champions. we have done nothing wrong!
