UNC-Stanford: Inside The Numbers

In its first game against a high-major frontcourt (and Stanford’s post duo of Reid Travis and Michael Humphrey is a really good one), UNC's freshman trio of Garrison Brooks, Sterling Manley, and Brandon Huffman had some ups and downs. Overall, however, they combined for 15 points (on 5-of-7 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line) and 13 rebounds in 33 minutes. (Inside Carolina)

Chansky’s Notebook: Three In The Post

Dean Smith had three freshman centers, Rich Yonakor, Jeff Wolf and Steve Krafcisin, and Smith joked that maybe Yon-Wolf-Sin could combine to equal Tom LaGarde’s lofty averages. Now, after three games, I am not saying that Garrison Brooks, Sterling Manley and Brandon Huffman are another Yon-Wolf-Sin, but from their numbers you would never know it. (Chapelboro.com)

Terry Porter’s squad has been hot from three-point land this season. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Live: Tailback Duo Offering Future Promise

The competition between UNC running backs Jordon Brown and Michael Carter could have been dangerous if one of them didn’t handle it correctly. Both players are young, and the desire to get ahead of one another could have created tension. However, sharing reps in practice has done the opposite, helping mold the pair into a serviceable unit in the backfield. (Inside Carolina)

UNC's Improving Defense Facing State's Many Weapons

UNC’s defense turned in its best statistical game of the season in Saturday’s 65-10 win over Western Carolina, but the reality is the Tar Heels were simply more gifted and more capable. So what can a coordinator learn about his team from such a performance, given the competition? “The biggest thing is you want to see execution,” John Papuchis said. “ (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Rivalry week is here. North Carolina has won the last two games played in Carter-Finley Stadium, including a 45-34 rout in 2015 when the Tar Heels jumped out to a 35-7 advantage on their way to winning the Coastal Division championship. We can go on and on, but what makes this rivalry special isn't the unexpected outcomes. It is the memorable moments. (WRAL Sports Fan)

The Chicago Bears (3-7) cut Barth on Monday after his 46-yard attempt with time expiring went wide right allowing Detroit to clinch a 27-24 win.

Upsets the Norm, Not the Exception in UNC-NCSU Football Rivalry

It’s not just double-digit spreads that are victim to upsets between these rivals. Since 1998, the underdog is 13-6. UNC is 3-7 and N.C. State is 3-6 as the favorite. “I don’t know why, but anything can happen in a rivalry game,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said on Monday. N.C. State is favored in the series for the first time in 10 years. That may be a good thing for the Tar Heels. (Inside Carolina)

After college, he turned pro – in Europe, shooting hoops for three years in Belgium and in Nice on the French Riviera. But eventually, Chadwick felt called to follow in the footsteps of his father, a longtime pastor. (Charlotte Observer)

Two Starts, Two Wins: Nathan Elliott's Growing Confidence

Since the Miami game, UNC's offense has been clicking. Larry Fedora's quarterback coachspeak is always centered around who will not turn the ball over and who gives his team the best chance to win. Right now that is Nathan Elliott. On Monday, Fedora added that Elliott has done a good job of executing the game plan and getting the ball where it needs to be. (Inside Carolina)

Chansky’s Notebook: Playing The Smart Card

Some of you may be wondering how Princeton defeated UNC in the NCAA women’s soccer tournament. It’s all Anson Dorrance’s fault, and not because he’s a lousy coach or over the hill. Just the opposite. Other schools began studying exactly what Dorrance was doing in Chapel Hill, and as more girls were playing soccer more of them became college prospects. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC pitching staff one of America's best heading into 2018

North Carolina's pitching staff starts with Luca Dalatri, who was a workhorse a year ago, making all 10 ACC weekend starts while logging 97 innings on the year. He finished 7-3 and showed advanced pitchability in walking only 19 while striking out 85. The 6''6" 240lb zone pounder was also impressive in three starts for the Team USA over the summer.
