Uncertainty Plagues UNC Football Team

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Less than a week away from the
high-profile opener that will kick off North Carolina's fourth
season under coach Butch Davis, the 18th-ranked Tar Heels aren't
sure exactly who will be playing for them against No. 21 LSU in
The team didn't release a depth chart Monday before Davis'
weekly news conference, a departure from typical gameweek
procedure. Davis wouldn't say how many players could be out amid an
NCAA investigation into agent-related benefits that has expanded
into a probe of possible academic misconduct.
School officials have said they might not know until gametime,
forcing Davis to use what he acknowledged was a "fluid" informal
depth chart in practice this week.
