Sophomore linebacker Larry Edwards may have lost some favor with his coach. Apparently the Tampa product that finished third on the team in tackles last season arrived to camp a little overweight and complacent.
"He's more focused now than when he first came to camp," UNC coach John Bunting said. "This game is never easy – if you're a freshman or a fifth-year senior. But, especially for a guy who has had some success and then thinks he's got it made – if you get my drift. [Edwards' weight] is going down and continuing to go down.
"My hand got caught in his facemask," McGill said.
Yet it didn't seem to affect his receiving capability. McGill stood out in practice when he took a pass for a big gainer.
"I just caught the ball, the linemen made a couple of good blocks and I just took off," he said. "I don't remember much, except for when I hit Gerald [Sensabaugh]…that's the last thing I remember."
"He's here," Bunting said. "He got in last night and we're excited about seeing him here."
"We'll get into every situation that we can possibly cover in that Saturday practice," Bunting said.
