The question that fans have been clamoring for all week long â€“ has North Carolina Tar Heels’ football coach Butch Davis heard anything new about the dozen Tar Heels still yet to be cleared with regard to the ongoing NCAA investigation?
â€œWe have not â€“ no updates,â€ Davis said.
But donâ€™t think that the players in question are simply twiddling their thumbs on the sidelines.
â€œTheyâ€™re working on the scout team, theyâ€™re taking advantage of individual [drills] to keep their skills sharp,â€ Davis said. â€œWhen we go to individual drills, weâ€™re just coaching football. Fundamentals [and] techniques at all of the different positions. In groups and walkthroughs, obviously weâ€™ve encouraged all of those guys to stay mentally involvedâ€¦ If and when the day comes that they are cleared, theyâ€™ll be able to participate back again in the rotation.â€
But as the hours before Saturdayâ€™s noon kickoff rapidly evaporate, the opportunity for any of the 12 players to potentially log serious minutes against the Yellow Jackets also seems to be vanishing.

Another key point from Coach Davis, included in the WRALSportsFan article:
Anyone held out of Saturdayâ€™s contest(versus Georgia Tech) will not be able allowed to dress out or stand on the sidelines.
