Tar Heels Look For 5-1 Start Against Cardinals

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina is looking for a 5-1 start when it faces Louisville on Saturday.

The Tar Heels are looking for their eighth straight nonconference victory and also have a chance to win their first four home games in 14 years. They're coming off a 35-20 win at East Carolina, though interim coach Everett Withers says his team didn't finish well after running out to a big first-half lead and "left a lot of meat on the bone."

Redshirt freshman tailback Giovani Bernard has three straight 100-yard rushing performances for the Tar Heels, who have outscored opponents 42-3 in the first quarter.

The Cardinals (2-2) are coming off a home loss to Marshall in a performance that included 11 penalties. Coach Charlie Strong called it "a step backward" for his program.

    Why is UNC looking for a Football coach?.You got the right guy already. It Would be stupid to go out a hire anyone else. The Interm coach is doing a heck of a job. Give Him a 2 year deal.Probably Could get him for a fraction of what Davis was making?The Guy just needs a chance to prove himself. He might suprise you. Seems to be a good coach & High Class guy.Good Speaker on Radio & TV Also.
