Photo Galleries: North Carolina | by Pat

Some may not really care to see photos from a loss, but there were a ton of them following the North Carolina game, so here they are. In a way it highlights just how big a game and win this was for the Tarheels that their official football site would post over 100 photos from the game.

Anyway, here are the links to galleries at the South Bend Tribune, galleries 1, 2, 3, and 4 at UNC's official site, a massive amount of photos at the News Observer (233 photos!), ACCFootballPhotos.com, and some from Getty Images.

For the shot of the game, I think this one of a dejected Clausen from the SBT just about sums things up. As Mike wrote in the previous post, the opportunity was there, but the Irish were unable to capitalize on it. Even with the growing confidence that the ND offense is on its way to being a force, coming up short against a motivated UNC team definitely hurts. Hopefully ND will be able to channel that disappointment into a strong second half of the season.

There are also a few videos to link. For those that weren't able to see any of the game thanks to ABC/ESPN, here are some of the ND highlights. Here's a sideline video of Mike Anello's tackle that knocked star returner/receiver Brandon Tate out for the year. The ACC Football Photos site linked above has a photo of the hit.
