Heels' defense faces huge challenge in Tigers

Here's what's happening now as the Tigers prepare for Saturday's game with North Carolina:

• The Tar Heels' defense has lost starting linebacker Ebele Okakpu for disciplinary reasons.

• ESPN's Heather Dinich says the Tigers should get a shot at the national championship. I hope she's right.

• Offensive coordinator Chad Morris says Clemson's offense is only going to get better.

Clemson's top Heisman candidates? Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins are outsiders right now, says ESPN. Watkins is also on ESPN's Heisman watch list.

• Running back Mike Bellamy has been frustrated by his lack of playing time.

The Post and Courier has an interesting story about long snappers.

• Recruiting news: Clemson has received another high-profile commitment  -- defensive tackle Josh Brown of Aiken, S.C.
