North Carolina finished the first half of its football season with a 5-1 record, but Jabari Price isn't sure all of its efforts are appreciated or recognized. Price, a sophomore cornerback, said that UNC will have to grab the attention he thinks it deserves in its final six games, starting with Saturday's home game vs. Miami.
