Bucks player profile: Kendall Marshall

Of the four players capable of playing point guard on Milwaukee's roster, Kendall Marshall is the closest thing to what is considered a true point guard. He's a pass first player who can rack up the assists. Marshall has a chance to seize an opportunity with the Bucks because the backcourt situation is unclear moving forward. (FOX Sports)

Blame, pressure build on UNC secondary

A week after ECU gashed UNC’s defensive backfield, Clemson took advantage immediately, throwing for a 74-yard touchdown pass on the second play of the game Saturday, a play that Fedora said saw two blown coverages. Coverage has been a consistent weak spot for UNC through the first third of the season, and patience is running thin. (Greensboro News & Record)

James Hurst gets passing grade in first start

Undrafted rookie offensive tackle James Hurst has been thrown into service as the Ravens’ starting left tackle, replacing injured Eugene Monroe. And in his first start Sunday against the Carolina Panthers, Hurst got a passing grade. “There were some things he can work on still, but he played well,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said. (Baltimore Ravens)

Audio: A Chat with VT Coach Frank Beamer

WCHL’s Matt Oakes caught up with legendary Virginia Tech head football coach Frank Beamer this week. The two discussed the competitiveness and depth in the ACC, how to replace injured Hokie freshman running back Shai McKenzie and of course, previewed what Coach Beamer is calling a ‘must-win matchup’ with UNC this weekend. (Chapelboro.com)

Q&A with UNC and Virginia Tech Insiders

UNC will again come out trying to stop the run. They did against Clemson and were successful in holding the Tigers to under 100 yards rushing. But the plan in many ways backfired, as the Tar Heel secondary was torched for over 400 yards passing. (Carolina Blue)

UNC's Young Defensive Line Showing Signs of Growth

North Carolina’s defensive line turned in its best showing of the season in Death Valley last weekend, which bodes well for a position group rotating in five underclassmen. UNC held the Tigers to 92 rushing yards on 2.1 yards per carry in its 50-35 loss on Saturday. The Tar Heel defensive front also sacked Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson three times for 19 yards.

Video: Fedora, Hughes Wednesday Post-Practice Interviews

Larry Fedora and Travis Hughes talk about a healthy and deeper UNC offensive line, the growth of Elijah Hood, and preparing for Virginia Tech. View Video...

Wednesday Larry Fedora Quotes

Larry Fedora: “[Virginia Tech is] going to be very sound in everything they do on special teams. And offensively I think they've evolved and they're throwing the ball much better than they have in the past. They've got some big receivers and tight ends, and the quarterback is doing a great job for them. We're going to have to play a really good, complete football game.” (Inside Carolina)

Looking Ahead to What UNC's Much Maligned Defense Will Be Facing

120 points and 1300 yards. That is what UNC has given up in the past two games to a pair of the more dynamic offenses in the country. Those numbers cast doubt on how the rest of the season will play out. The hope is that the remainder of the schedule doesn't pit UNC against any offensive powerhouses. Here is how the rest of the teams on UNC's schedule rank in the relevant offensive categories. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Celebrates Military Appreciation Day This Saturday

Carolina will celebrate Military Appreciation Day this Saturday as the Tar Heels take on Virginia Tech at Kenan Stadium. Just as in previous years, the team plans to wear a special helmet for the event, but there’s much more in store for Saturday. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Veterans Thorpe, Farmer Preaching Accountability

Senior defensive tackle Ethan Farmer and junior wide receiver T.J. Thorpe each lead on different sides of the football, but both Tar Heel veterans are driving home the same message to their teammates. One is more outspoken; the other, more of a stoic example. But both leaders are preaching the same doctrine this week in practice. (Chapelboro.com)

Paige Views: Inside Conditioning

Marcus Paige: "When I first came to Carolina, I thought of 'conditioning' as running line drills over and over in practice. That's what we do in practice, and that's what I was used to doing in high school. I never thought, for example, that weightlifting had anything to do with conditioning. But every day before we condition we lift for an hour. That makes a big difference." (GoHeels.com)

Hokies and Tar Heels to meet in key Coastal clash

Virginia Tech (3-2, 0-1 ACC) will return to conference play this Saturday afternoon, taking on North Carolina (2-2, 0-1 ACC) at Kenan Stadium in a key Coastal Division matchup. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. Tim Brant, Dave Archer and Rachel Baribeau will have the call for the ACC Network. (Hokie Sports)

Emergence of Elijah Hood

Through the first three games of the season, UNC quarterback Marquise Williams led the Tar Heels in rushing. For a North Carolina team that was supposed to have four quality running backs, none of them had separated themselves as a lethal threat. That separation may have come last Saturday in Clemson thanks to freshman running back Elijah Hood. (Carolina Blue)

Yankees’ Adam Warren puts seal on season

Adam Warren toed the rubber for the final time this baseball season. The New York Yankees’ relief pitcher, and New Bern native, pitched 1.1 innings in the season-finale on Sunday against the Boston Red Sox. It was also the final game for teammate Derek Jeter. Warren finished the season with a 2.97 ERA with three saves in 69 appearances. (New Bern Sun Journal)
