At North Carolina, Virginia and USC the rebuilding remains long-term. It's not as if Groh and Bunting have anywhere else they want to coach. Bunting's wife, Dawn, attends every practice and often shows up in the football office to help with administrative tasks. A couple of weeks into the season she passed her husband's office and saw him staring out the window behind his desk at Kenan Stadium. "He turned around and sat down and there were tears in his eyes," Dawn says. "I asked him, 'Are you all right?' That's how he feels about this place."
