CHAPEL HILL http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/zach-allen-jersey , N.C. (AP) — North Carolina is finally back on schedule.The Tar Heels open Atlantic Coast Conference play Saturday at home against Pittsburgh after having a game canceled due to Hurricane Florence. It will mark their first chance to climb out of an 0-2 start , though it comes after a week that took them out of in-season routines.“It’s an unforeseen break,” UNC coach Larry Fedora said, “and we’ve got to turn it into a positive.”UNC was set to face No. 16 UCF last weekend, but Florence’s approach toward the Carolinas’ coastline forced the schools to cancel the game Sept. 11. A day later, Fedora said, the coaches dismissed the players Cullen Gillaspia Jersey , with roughly half leaving campus with classes canceled and the rest sticking around.The Tar Heels didn’t practice for four days as the storm brought wind and rain. And as they returned to the practice field Monday, there was also work to aid Florence relief efforts.Fedora and several players spent part of Tuesday loading the program’s equipment truck with donated items being brought to campus to help areas affected by the storm. The players also decided to give their $15 per-diem meal money for last week’s canceled game to acquire $1,275 in supplies for former UNC linebacker Kevin Reddick’s donation drive for his hometown of New Bern, one of several flooded communities in the eastern half of the state.Now it’s time to focus fully on football again.“It’s definitely weird having those four days off,” offensive guard Nick Polino said. “It’s not something that usually happens . even on a bye week. We just kind of did some recovery, some guys got a workout in if we could.“Other than that, we’re ready to be back in the swing of things.”The Panthers (2-1 Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , 1-0 ACC) are coming off a home win against Georgia Tech in their league opener, though they’re preparing for their first road game of the season. They’re also trying to earn their first win against UNC since joining the ACC for the 2013 season.Pitt has lost all five meetings against its Coastal Division foe, all by one-possession margins.“It’s by four points here, five points there,” Pitt senior cornerback Phillipie Motley said. “And it’s a topic of discussion just because we’ve been in the game and had chances to win the game. But like I said, hey, we just didn’t make the plays when it was time to make the plays.”Here are things to know about Saturday’s Pitt-UNC game:QADREE’S QUEST: Pitt senior running back Qadree Ollison is running well. The former league offensive rookie of the year leads the Panthers with 283 yards rushing and three touchdowns while averaging 6.3 yards per carry. He credits his success to his line http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/ben-banogu-jersey , some added explosiveness for trimming body fat in the offseason and time spent working primarily as a blocking back — which helped him better understand how to set up his own blockers.ELLIOTT’S ACCURACY: North Carolina needs quarterback Nathan Elliott to be more accurate . He’s completed roughly 51 percent of his passes with one touchdown in two games. The junior said he’s working on it and determined to “be better.”BRACE YOURSELF: Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett is traveling with extra hardware: a brace on his left knee. The sophomore typically wore a brace during practice but not in games — that is, until coach Pat Narduzzi ordered Pickett to wear it full time after Pickett narrowly escaped serious injury when a Georgia Tech player crashed into the knee last week. Pickett says it shouldn’t limit his mobility and the biggest issue is simply comfort.WATCH LIST: North Carolina receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams had a huge game at Pitt last year. He returned the opening kickoff for a 98-yard touchdown, threw a trick-play scoring pass and had the go-ahead TD catch in the fourth quarter of the 34-31 win.ADVANTAGE?: UNC’s altered schedule means more time for banged-up players to heal and extra time for UNC’s coaches to scout Pitt. “Nobody is banged up and they’ve had two weeks to prepare for us,” Narduzzi said. “I think it’s an advantage for them.” CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)The Turner family could be growing within the Carolina Panthers organization. The team is interviewing Norv Turner for its vacant offensive coordinator position, said a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the team does not discuss potential coaching candidates. The Panthers fired offensive coordinator Mike Shula and quarterbacks coach Ken Dorsey Tuesday, two days after a playoff loss to the Saints. If the 65-year-old Turner is hired Parris Campbell Jersey , he’s expected to bring in his son Scott as quarterbacks coach. Scott Turner is an offensive analyst at the University of Michigan and previously worked for the Panthers as an offensive quality control coordinator from 2011-12. It would also be quite a family reunion if both are hired. Norv Turner’s brother, Ron, is an offensive consultant for the Panthers and his nephew Cameron is the team’s assistant quarterbacks coach. After initially giving Shula a vote of confidence on Monday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera fired him a day later saying that the team’s offense needed a ”different perspective” and ”different ideas” going forward. Carolina was 11-5 this season and finished 19th in total offense under Shula, but again struggled moving the ball through the air finishing 28th in the league. Quarterback Cam Newton turned in his worst two quarterback ratings of his career in the last two seasons. Norv Turner began working in the NFL in 1985 as a wide receivers coach for the Los Angeles Rams and later won two Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys as an offensive coordinator in the early 1990s. Turner has worked as the head coach of the Washington Redskins (1994-2000), Oakland Raiders (2004-05) and San Diego Chargers (2007-12) and was a combined 114-122-1 with five playoff appearances but no Super Bowl appearances. While in San Diego, Turner employed Rivera as his defensive coordinator before the Panthers hired him as head coach in 2011. Turner last worked in the NFL from 2014-16 as the offensive coordinator for the Minnesota Vikings. Former St. Louis Rams wide receiver Torry Holt praised Turner on Twitter Will Harris Jersey , tweeting ”get ready for Bang 8’s, Deep Digs, Power Run game, and a ton of shifts on offense. His style will challenge his players. Outstanding offensive MIND.” —
