Denver Broncos sign kicker Connor Barth

The Denver Broncos have waived rookie kicker Brandon McManus and signed Connor Barth, according to Adam Schefter and Mike Klis respectively. Barth is a far more accurate field goal kicker than McManus has shown to be. In 2012 with Tampa Bay, Barth's last NFL season, he made 10 of 11 attempts up to 39 yards, 12 of 13 from 40-49, and 6 of 9 from 50+. (Mile High Report)

2014-15 NCAA Basketball Preview: The ACC

I have read the entire Wainstein report and I’m choosing to believe 100 percent of it. This is an academic issue involving athletes. Not an athletics issue involving academics. You can’t punish people for getting wrapped up in something that goes so much higher up than them when there’s no proof that they knew anything was wrong. (Grantland)

ACC Upset Watch: Week 14

NC State (6-5) at North Carolina (6-5), 12:30 p.m.. Line: North Carolina by 6.5. The Tar Heels are riding high off an impressive 45-20 win against Duke, but now they face their second straight rivalry game against a Wolfpack team that had a week off to prepare. Though UNC's run defense played much better, NC State will try to continue to exploit weaknesses in that group . (ESPN.com)

Half-full, half-empty: Andrew Miller

We continue our half-full, half-empty series on MLB free agents with a look at Andrew Miller. He might actually be the most-sought-after free agent this offseason because every team would like to add a hard-throwing lefty reliever who held opponents to a .153 average in 2014. Reports last week indicated that at least 22 clubs had contacted Miller's agent. (ESPN.com)

Tar Heel Bowl Projections

Here's a look at how the bowls might play out for UNC, followed by some of those same national forecasts that didn't include Carolina a month ago. And yes, we know there is still a game to play, and the outcome against the Wolfpack will determine a great deal about the postseason destination for both schools. (GoHeels.com)

UNC, Wisconsin, Florida, UCLA lead Atlantis field

North Carolina coach Roy Williams knows a trip to the Bahamas will not in any way resemble a Thanksgiving vacation for his Tar Heels. He's not complaining. And neither are plenty of other teams that are spending the next few days in paradise. No. 2 Wisconsin, No. 5 UNC, No. 18 Florida and No. 22 UCLA headline the eight-team bracket at the Battle 4 Atlantis. (Associated Press)

Previewing Butler

North Carolina heads to the Bahamas to open play in the Battle 4 Atlantis on Wednesday against Butler. Tip-off is set for noon and will be televised by ESPN2. Butler enters Wednesday’s Battle 4 Atlantis opener with a 3-0 record. The Bulldogs have won each of their games by 20-plus points, defeating Maine (99-57), Chattanooga (70-48) and Loyola (Md.) (80-39). (Inside Carolina)

Fedora, Tar Heels Look To Send Seniors Out On Top

For now, the Victory Bell chimes have grown quiet. The Tar Heels have turned their attention to another in-state foe – the Wolfpack of N.C. State. UNC will be striving to make it three straight victories over its rival in red Saturday afternoon inside Kenan Stadium and remarkably, given the 2-4 start, be playing to finish with a 7-5 regular season record. (Chapelboro.com)

Rivalry Week: Part Two

While ramifications for last week's win were still echoing through Chapel Hill, N.C. State was making noise of its own in Raleigh ahead of the game against UNC Saturday. Wolfpack safety Hakim Jones caused quite the social media stir at N.C. State's press conference when he said: "After you hit (Marquise Williams) a few times he basically almost quits because he really don't like to get hit." (Carolina Blue)

Satara Murray ends unforgettable women's soccer career

As the announcer at Fetzer Field counted the clock down to zero during the North Carolina women’s soccer game Sunday in the third round of the NCAA Tournament, senior defender Satara Murray stopped in her place on the field and reluctantly lowered herself to the grass. The number next to UNC on the scoreboard read zero. The number next to South Carolina read one. (Daily Tar Heel)

Know Your Opponent: Battle For Atlantis

The Battle 4 Atlantis boasts one of the top fields of the Thanksgiving week tournaments, with seven teams in the KenPom top 56 and four teams in the AP top 25. It’s a nice mix of familiar opponents, bluebloods, exciting mid-majors and legitimate national title contenders. Here’s a quick look at the seven teams awaiting the Tar Heels in paradise. (GoHeels.com)

Wolfpack safety barks, Tar Heels seeing red

After a resounding 45-20 win over Duke last Thursday at Wallace Wade Stadium, the Tar Heels expect to be just as fired up to face the Wolfpack. It didn’t take long on Monday during UNC coach Larry Fedora’s weekly press conference to get focused on N.C. State when he heard comments about the toughness of UNC quarterback Marquise Williams from the Wolfpack’s Hakim Jones. (Durham Herald-Sun)

NC State talk won’t bother Marquise Williams

By now Marquise Williams knows. He has to. An eager Larry Fedora couldn’t wait to tell the redshirt junior quarterback what he just learned at his weekly Monday press conference — so much so that he was tempted to give Williams a call the second the conference ended. “Larry, N.C. State had some player say that when you hit Marquise Williams a few times, he just quits.” (Daily Tar Heel)
