UNC's Switzer doesn't look back

During Thursday's meeting of the University of North Carolina Board of Trustees, trustee Donald Williams asked UNC wide receiver Ryan Switzer: "How does it feel to see a 280-pound guy coming after you?"

Switzer replied: "I usually don't see them because they're behind me. But if I do get caught, it usually hurts."

Marcus Paige, another student-athlete on hand during the meeting, told the board that he likes to support sports that don't always get as much attention as the men's basketball team, such as gymnastics and lacrosse. He's got more opportunities for that now that the Tar Heels are out of the NCAA Tournament.

"I have a little free time now," he quipped. "Unfortunately."
