Turner's Take: Love

It started with love. Ronnie Schneider felt it when he visited Carolina, the embrace of the Carolina family. He wanted to be a part of it.

He knew that his class could help raise the bar for Carolina men's tennis. (GoHeels.com)

There will be an adjustment he'll need to make playing against more complex defensive schemes than he saw in college, but in a smaller offensive role, Jackson will likely find ways to use his basketball IQ to find openings to get good looks at the rim.

How Larry Fedora saved a UNC med student's graduation

To say that Larry Fedora wears a lot of hats at North Carolina would be a wince-worthy pun, but one rooted in truth. He's the Tar Heels' head football coach, but also a university ambassador, of sorts, and one of the public faces of the athletic department. And, oh yes, he's also giving rides now. At least Fedora did recently on graduation Saturday at UNC. (Charlotte Observer)

The eight most important NBA Draft Early Entry decisions remaining

If Tony Bradley stays in the NBA Draft, it would be a significant loss for the Tar Heels, but not a fatal one. If he returns, UNC would be one of the top national title contenders.

Sports)

Comparing Mitch Trubisky to Jim McMahon

Jim McMahon tweeted his approval of Mitch Trubisky using the alias "James McMahon" to make a dinner reservation with Bears executives in North Carolina.
