50 is the New 40

Being a UNC football fan in the Larry Fedora era means the Tar Heel record book is written in pencil, since in just three years, a number of significant offensive records have fallen. UNC games that cross the 40-point and even 50-point threshold are commonplace. However, it’s not just offensive records that are endangered. This season alone a half-dozen records for defensive futility have been set. (Raleigh & Company)

UNC, Northwestern, Mizzou, Kansas State to headline 2015 CBE Classic

Julius Peppers enjoying life with the Packers

Well into his 13th NFL season and with his third team, Julius Peppers is enjoying life with the Green Bay Packers. "I haven't really had very much to complain about," Peppers said Friday. "I wake up, I'm happy to come to work every day. So that's a good thing. So far, so good." What has Peppers excited and still highly productive at age 34 is being part of a deep and reliable group at outside linebacker. (USA Today)

Preview & Prediction: #6 UNC vs Davidson

The biggest concern for UNC will be Davidson junior Brian Sullivan. Last season, in UNC's overtime win over the Wildcats in Chapel Hill, Sullivan scored 33 points and was 7-14 from three. Davidson will be undersized against UNC's long perimeter players but at the same time have a pair of 6-9 players that can shoot threes. Prediction: UNC 83 Davidson 70 (Tar Heel Blog)

What Went Right, What Went Wrong Versus Duke

Given how the season has gone, though, this was easily the most complete game the team has played, so finding negatives was a bit more difficult than it usually is....More went right in North Carolina's 45-20 victory at Duke on Thursday night than in any game all season. 

UNC Receives Letter From Accreditation Agency

In response to Kenneth Wainstein’s report on academic irregularities, UNC’s accreditation agency has sent the school an eight-page letter asking for an update on how it’s complying with the standards required for accreditation. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Commission on Colleges sent the letter earlier this month; UNC officials released it publicly on Friday during a meeting of the Faculty Council.

Marquise Williams sets UNC total yards record

In UNC's 45-20 win over Duke on Thursday night, Tar Heel quarterback Marquise Williams set the UNC single-season total offensive yards record. Williams has 3,499 total offense yards this year. He has 726 rushing yards (on 162 carries) and 2773 passing yards (on 234-369 passing, 63.4%). (Carolina Blue)

Logan: Williams carrying UNC to wins, Fedora letting the team play

Steve Logan joined Adam and Joe in studio Friday to discuss the UNC-Duke game from Thursday night and said that North Carolina is getting great performances from their leaders – namely Marquise Williams. “Marquise Williams, minus Jameis Winston, has become the best quarterback in the ACC and it’s not even close,” Logan said.

Worth’s OT Goal Propels UNC Women's Soccer Past Colorado

The sixth-ranked UNC women’s soccer team had been knocking at the door all night but it took the first career goal from sophomore Maya Worth to earn the Tar Heels a spot in the NCAA Tournament third round as UNC took down Colorado 1-0 in overtime Friday. The Tar Heels earned a spot in the Final 16 of the tournament for the 33rd successive year. (GoHeels.com)

A Conversation with Harrison Barnes

Harrison Barnes: "It was an extremely frustrating year, but it turned out to be huge motivation for me this summer. To be able to go through what last year was, and then to be playing well on this year’s team and be part of a team that’s 8-2 right now, it makes it even more gratifying. I definitely want to just continue to keep working, continue to get better." (San Francisco Gate)

UNC vs Davidson preview

Last season, North Carolina needed overtime to put Davidson away 97-85 in Chapel Hill. This year, the two teams haven't changed much, at least that's what North Carolina coach Roy Williams said in his press conference Friday afternoon. "They're different, but not a lot," Williams said. On paper, that seems about right. (Carolina Blue)

UNC-Davidson Preview

North Carolina struggled at times last season, leaving coach Roy Williams to preach to his big men about providing solid efforts on a consistent basis. The message finally may be getting through. The sixth-ranked Tar Heels look to keep rolling as they face in-state counterpart Davidson on Saturday in Charlotte. (CBS Sports)

Road Swing Begins At Davidson

North Carolina (2-0) will play its first road game of the 2014-15 season when it plays at Davidson (2-0) on Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be played at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte. Carolina is coming off a pair of home wins over North Carolina Central and Robert Morris, while Davidson has started the campaign 2-0 with home wins over Catholic and Campbell. (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: UNC Basketball Notebook

Tomorrow marks UNC’s first regular-season game in Charlotte since the 2007-08 season opener. That game was also against Davidson, and featured a 72-68 Tar Heel win. Although it feels like Roy Williams has spent more time in Charlotte than this because of various ACC and NCAA Tournament appearances, this is just the fourth regular season game in the Queen City during the Williams era.

Wayne Ellington's Return Boosts Lakers
