** John Henson was named ACC player of the week after averaging nearly a double-double in UNC's pair of season-opening wins.

** The Bubba Cunningham era began at UNC on Monday as the new AD took over for the soon-to-be-retired Dick Baddour. The Daily Tar Heel has a nice look at Baddour's 45-year career in Chapel Hill.

** Bryn Renner did in fact suffer a concussion in the first half against NC State, but is fully recovered and ready to go for Thursday's game at Virginia Tech, according to Caulton Tudor of the N&O.

** Cornerback Todd Harrelson has left the football team and plans to transfer, according to Everett Withers.

** In an obligatory Tire Fire update, Michael McAdoo's lawsuit against UNC and the NCAA was dismissed by the judge. Not wholly unexpected since he was smacked down in the hearing by the NCAA and then signed a free agent contract with the Baltimore Ravens before being put on injured reserve.

**There's yet another ACC soccer title in Chapel Hill, but it's not the women this time. UNC's men's soccer team won the ACC soccer championship with a 3-1 win over Boston College on Sunday. Carolina's Ben Speas was named tournament MVP and the Heels captured an ACC title for first-year coach Carlos Somoano.

**UNC's #1-ranked field hockey team advanced to its 3rd-straight Final Four and 16th overall with a 5-1 win over Michigan. The Heels will face UConn on Friday in Louisville in one national semifinal, while Maryland and Old Dominion are in the other semifinal.
