Football - UNC opens season with win

The North Carolina football team took a win in its first game of 2008, thanks in large part to a stunning performance by senior Brandon Tate. Tate finished with a school-record 397 all-purpose yards on only 11 touches. UNC beat McNeese State 35-27 in a game delayed almost two hours for weather. Despite climbing to an early 14-0 lead, the Tar Heels came back from the break without fire and fell to a third-quarter deficit, overcome in large part by Tate's explosiveness. Tate finished 106 yards rushing and 93 yards receiving, as well as an 82-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Though overshadowed by the martyrdom of John Lennon, McCartney had greater mass appeal, blending bright '60s melodies with grand, orchestral instrumentation into one of the most successful and influential sounds of the '70s. On its new full-length, krautrocking Beatle-heads Stereolab mine the material of McCartney and his Wings with great success.
