The tryout judges gave no specific instructions. No rules. The only thing they told Jason to do was put on the costume for the yellow-horned ram mascot, Rameses, at the University of North Carolina and prove he deserved to wear the suit. So Jason climbed into the furry blue and white outfit, pulled on the smelly Ram head and did his thing. Within seconds, the traffic on the two-lane stretch of South Road that cuts through the heart of campus stopped. On the north side of the street, they chanted, "Tar." On the south side, they chanted, "Heels."
