By Turner Walston | 0 Comment(s) | Posted

It's October, and apparently it's going to really start feeling like fall here in a matter of days.

Carolina football hosts Virginia Tech Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in what could be a huge game in deciding the Coastal Division. It's a "white out" game, so be sure to dress appropriately. You can pick up a t-shirt at Chapel Hill Sportswear or at Kenan Stadium. Yesterday, Lee Pace posted a uniform rundown on GoHeels.com. Here's the accompanying photo gallery. Check out the preparations being made at Kenan Stadium courtesy of assistant equipment manager Jason Freeman (worth a follow on Twitter @uncfootball).

Men's Soccer travels to Clemson for a 7 p.m. match tonight. Watch it on ESPN3.

Volleyball has a weekend road trip in Florida, with matches at Florida State Friday at 7 and Miami Sunday at 1.

Field Hockey is in Massachusetts this weekend for matches against Boston College and Dartmouth Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Roy Williams got some good news this week: the tumor on his left kidney is non-cancerous. He has been given the OK to be at practice on October 13. Adam Lucas checked in with men's basketball's Leslie McDonald, who returns from an ACL injury that caused him to miss the 2011-12 season.

In case you missed it, Adam also compiled some storylines from Tar Heel alumni in the NBA. Rasheed is back.

Major League Baseball's wild card round is tonight. The lone Tar Heel in the postseason is A's pitcher Andrew Carignan. Oakland plays the Detroit Tigers in the ALDS beginning Saturday.

Tuesday, Adam Greenberg got his one at-bat with the Miami Marlins. I wrote about being there for THM.com. Joe Posnanski chimed in as well.

Carolina baseball's Fall World Series begins Monday at 2:30 p.m. The rosters were set on Wednesday.


Interesting link from Katie Linendoll on malfunctions in NFL helmet radios.

J.J. Abrams showed a (very) short clip of the upcoming Star Trek into Darkness on Conan.
