Cloak of mystery

It's been an ongoing storyline this offseason and one that UNC head coach Larry Fedora apparently wants to continue. Throughout summer and fall camp, Fedora has refused to announce a starter at quarterback, waving off the question each times it's asked. At Monday's press conference, Fedora made it apparent he doesn't plan to answer the question at all publicly. 

The QB race has been between redshirt junior Marquise Williams, who started five games last season, and Mitch Trubisky, who arrived in Chapel Hill as a highly-touted prospect. When Fedora was asked who will start Saturday for UNC against Liberty, he replied, "Somebody's going to be out there. It'll probably be a quarterback, though."

When a reporter further pressed Fedora why he chooses not to select a starter, Fedora had an unexpected reply.

“Because it bothers a lot of people,” Fedora said. “And that'd probably be the number one reason -- is that everyone wants to ask about it, and so it just gives me pleasure. And it just gives me pleasure.”

Fedora did comment that his two quarterbacks will be notified who's starting Saturday sometime this week.
