Gameday UNC Football Links

Gameday UNC Football Links

Saturday's links from around the 'net.

"The Victory Bell has been on the North Carolina sideline so long now that Tar Heel fans are accustomed to seeing it there."
Duke gets another shot to ring Victory Bell
The Asheville Citizen Times

"Someone asked UNC linebacker Doug Justice what he knew about the famed object that goes to the winner of the annual UNC-Duke football game."
For whom the Bell tolls?
The Durham Herald Sun

"When the North Carolina football team practiced Thursday afternoon, the managers signaled the end of each segment not by blowing an air horn -- the usual method. Rather, they rang a bell -- the Victory Bell, which goes annually to the winner of the Duke-UNC game."
Bell tolls for UNC?
The Raleigh News and Observer

"As bad as UNC's campaign has been, losing to Duke would be the greatest embarrassment of all. UNC has won 12 consecutive games against its "rival" from Durham, which has also lost 24 straight ACC contests, dating back to 1999."
Last Chance for UNC, Duke To Salvage Dismal Seasons
The Daily Tar Heel

"A smoldering rivalry could burn again today when Duke and North Carolina close their football seasons on even, miserable terms at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham."
Woeful Tar Heels to play abysmal Blue Devils
The Winston Salem Journal

"After Duke closes Saturday against North Carolina, especially if Duke loses, athletics director Joe Alleva could point to his football coach's 5-40 record and fire Carl Franks."
Do the right thing, Duke
