For anyone who has ever turned 40, you know there are always a few moments that make you feel old. For Dale Earnhardt Jr., one of those came when Jeff Gordon announced that 2015 would be his last year driving full-time.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis heard general manager Dave Gettleman’s comments about moving out of the “dollar store” this offseason, and Davis is ready for the shopping to begin.

Three straight ACC losses have set NC State back, but coach Mark Gottfried said there’s still reason to be hopeful.

For Virginia, this is the beginning of the toughest stretch in their schedule, playing Duke, at North Carolina and then hosting Louisville all within an eight-day stretch. Leading up to this game with the Blue Devils, the Cavaliers had a five-day break between games, giving coach Tony Bennett plenty of time to entertain questions about the matchup.

UNC’s six-game winning streak has given the impression that this Tar Heels team is starting to click, if it isn’t already.
