Turner's Take: Break Your Heart

It's the toughest out of your career, if you're Adam Pate. He graduated from Carolina nearly a month ago. He's married. He's an adult now. He'll take off that Carolina jersey for the final time at some point. Maybe he has by now, but he didn't seem in a hurry to remove it Sunday night. "It's been special," he said of his time at Carolina and his senior year. (GoHeels.com)
