GoHeels Exclusive: Midweek Notebook

By Pat James,

Sitting at 2-0 after Saturday's comeback win against Miami, the members of the North Carolina football team have started sensing more excitement about the program.

"There's definitely a better buzz around campus surrounding the football team," Sam Howell told reporters on Tuesday. "That's what happens when you win, so we need to keep that going. … It's definitely a cool feeling. This school needs to be proud of their football team, and we're going to make them proud."

The Tar Heels will have a chance to continue doing that Friday, when they face off against Wake Forest in a non-conference game in Winston-Salem.
