In his second weekly press conference, North Carolina football head coach Larry Fedora touched on defensive breakdowns against California and — of course — the quarterbacks. Here are some notes from this afternoon.
There’s one less OR at the quarterback position. On the team’s second depth chart of the season, redshirt sophomore Nathan Elliott is no longer listed as a starting quarterback. He is in place as the No. 2 option right now, with Brandon Harris and Chazz Surratt listed the No. 1.
Although Surratt outperformed Harris in Saturday’s 35-30 loss, Fedora still remains noncommittal on choosing a surefire starter. He said he’ll watch them through another week of practice before deciding how to use them against No. 16 Louisville — be that in a rotation or not.
“You can’t do it all on one game,” he said of basing the decision off one game. “You can’t. There’s just too many things, too many variables. But we’ll see. We’ll continue to battle it out there, and we’re going to put the guy on the field that we think can help us win a football game."
