In its past two games, a win and a loss, UNC has managed a total of 184 yards passing. Jarwarski Pollock had two catches for seven yards in those games, and Mike Mason had one for five yards. Derrele Mitchell had none and didn't even have a pass thrown his way against Miami last week.

We're going slower. We have to be more patient, because it takes a while to learn, and it also takes a while to learn in game situations. I can put them out there today, the five freshmen, and say, "Run secondary break, dribble." And they'll do it perfectly, just like that. Put 21,750 fans in there, they have no hope of getting it right, and I know that.
