UNC 45, Maryland 38

If you had been, say, on the moon since the summer and had not seen North Carolina play football this season before today, the Maryland game was a microcosm of the 2012 season in many ways. There was stellar offensive play by Giovani Bernard, a record-setting performance by Bryn Renner, and a big receiving day by emerging star Quinshad Davis. There was also mind-numbingly bad defense...

But his academics prevented him from qualifying, so he instead opted to play for Butler (Kan.) Community College. It was a junior...
