CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina coach Larry Fedora isn't deviating from the normal plan for early in preseason camp, even with 13 players facing suspensions for secondary NCAA violations for selling team-issued shoes.
The focus remains on installing basic schemes for at least a few more days, though the coaching staff will soon start adjusting the amount of reps for players facing suspensions as the Tar Heels prepare for the season opener at California on Sept. 1.
"We know some guys are going to be out," receiver Thomas Jackson said after Thursday morning's practice. `We'd love to have them but we don't. That's not going to change our attitude going into the first game. . So it's not really affecting anybody's mindset."
