DETROIT After a season unlike any he had ever experienced – and not in a good way – North Carolina sophomore receiver Ryan Switzer stood outside his team’s locker room on Friday night and spoke with a sense of defiance, with emotion, about another poor game at the end of a long season.
The Tar Heels had just ended their season with another defeat – a 40-21 loss against Rutgers in the Quick Lane Bowl – and Switzer was talking about searching both for answers and for teammates with the right kind of drive and determination.
“We’ll find the guys that want to grind with us,” he said, “that want to go through the spring ball and (offseason workouts) and work their tails off to get to next season.”

. Greetings from Lexington, Ky., folks, where on Saturday North Carolina will play a Kentucky team that Roy Williams said his the best he's ever seen. Well, Williams didn't exactly say it that way, in those terms.

Marcus Paige's answers were shorter following North Carolina's 60-55 loss against Iowa on Wednesday night, his insights less detailed than they normally are. Excpet those directed at himself, at least.
