UNC Faces New Questions
Game and time: Wake Forest at
North Carolina. Kickoff is at noon.
Records: Wake Forest is 4-4, 2-4 in
the ACC. North Carolina is 5-4, 4-2 in
Series: North Carolina leads
Injuries: Wake Forest - QB
Anthony Young is doubtful. North
Carolina - DT Jonas Seawright (left
knee) is doubtful. OT Justin Barton is
out. SS DeFonte Coleman (left shoul
der), DT Will Chapman (left knee), and
WR Isaiah Robinson (right knee) are
out for the season.
Hie key matchup: North Carolina
has enjoyed tremendous success with its
two-quarterback system of Ronald
Curry and Dari an Durant, going 5-0.
Last week, with Curry nursing a sore
hamstring, redshirt freshman Durant
started for the first time in his career,
completing 22 of 37 passes for 286
yards and three touchdowns against
Georgia Tech’s ACC-leading defense.
But the Tar Heels still lost, 28-21.
Now, because of personal tragedies,
both members of that tag team might be
unavailable for Saturday’s game.
Durant returned to practice for the
first time Thursday evening since
Saturday, when he went to Florence,
S.C. after the death of his stepmother.
He shared time with redshirt freshman
Aaron Leak in practice, taking about 60
percent of the snaps.
“Darian, especially coming from a
tragic situation that’s happened to him
and his family, he did a good job of
coming here and picking up on a lot of
things,” said UNC center Adam Metts.
“I felt like he stepped right in without
having to step off.”
Curry, meanwhile, is still in
Hampton, Va., where he will attend the
funeral of his cousin at 1:30 p.m. on
Bunting said earlier in the week that
he would have no problem playing
either Curry or Durant should they
return in time for the game because
both have had ample experience run
ning the offense this season.
But he said Thursday that he had
made no decision about the starter and
that a choice could come as late as
So the possibility remains that Leak,
who has thrown only one pass this sea
son, a 24-yard completion, could take
his share of snaps against Wake Forest.
That makes the running game even
more important for the Tar Heels.
They had a nightmarish showing on

measly 13 yards on 17 rushes.
“This week, we’ve put a large
emphasis on improving our running
game,” Metts said. “1 think from the
Georgia Tech game, it pretty much
proved that you have to have a running
game to be able to win.”
Final Analysis/Prediction: With or
without Durant under center, UNC
should still be able to win this game,
pending one thing - that its front seven
has gotten over the pounding it
absorbed against the Yellowjackets.

Passes lacked direction, shots went
wide, and UNC failed to connect The
Tar Heels managed 15 shots on goal in
the second half, but Lear only had to
deflect two of them.
N.C. State, on the other hand, did
everything it could to avenge last
Thursday’s 4-2 loss to UNC in Chapel
Hill and steal North Carolina chance at
a 13th-consecutive conference title. And
even more importantly, winning a con
ference tide was more than likely the
Wolfpack’s only hope of making the
NCAA Tournament this season.
N.C. State (8-10, 0-8) stepped up its
intensity and split possession fairly
evenly with the higher skilled Tar Heels
in the second half. But on 50-50 balls,
more often than not, it was a red jersey
that was first to scramble to the ball.
“We’re all very skillful,” Kluegel said.
“But if you don’t play with any intensi
ty or any heart, it really doesn’t matter.
“It’s frustrating. Our team needs to
get on the same page. If we don’t play

we’re gonna lose. Then our season is
