UNC Players Take In the Solar Eclipse

It was one of the larger astronomical events in recent memory. The 2017 solar eclipse took place on Monday afternoon right at 2:42 p.m. ET. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and earth and fully or partially blocks the sun. Hundreds of students sat on UNC's quad to observe the event on Monday afternoon.

Mitch Trubisky beaten up but not beaten down in second exhibition

Mitch Trubisky took his jersey and laid it over a chair inside the Bears’ locker room Saturday. A grass stain was smeared across the back, symbolic of a performance that wasn’t as clean as his captivating debut. The first-round rookie quarterback was sacked twice and completed 6 of 8 passes for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Bears’ 24-23 exhibition win over the Cardinals. (Chicago Tribune)

Indians' Andrew Miller re-injures knee against Red Sox

Monday UNC Football Preseason Camp Tidbits

Larry Fedora said that all UNC's running backs are "like freshman" outside of sophomore Jordon Brown.

Roy Cooper gives UNC permission to remove Silent Sam

Gov. Roy Cooper wrote a letter to UNC-System President Margaret Spellings giving the University permission to remove Silent Sam if leaders "believe there is a real risk to public safety."

Department of Public Safety Secretary Eric Hooks and UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees Chair Haywood Cochrane. (Daily Tar Heel)

How patience paid off for UNC receiver, former walk-on Thomas Jackson

Thomas Jackson’s last trip home to Charlotte, at the end of July, was entirely ordinary. Nights relaxing at home. Trips to the local Harris Teeter. Even a visit or two to his favorite sandwich shop just south of uptown, Laurel Market. “I always get a No. 4,” Jackson said Monday after North Carolina’s final day of football training camp. (Charlotte Observer)

Video: Larry Fedora Monday Post-Practice Interview

Gunter Brewer On Some Pups, Perry, Mollette & More

“You’ve got some that have been in there, like Austin Proehl, but he’s been injured. You’ve got Thomas Jackson, who’s been in the fray and done a really good job. But then you’ve got the puppies, who hadn’t been in at all and (are) learning the offense completely, the tempo we practice, how hard we practice and what we do. They’re grinding through like the rest of us.” (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Kareem Martin Makes Claim For Cardinals' Defensive Role

Kareem Martin has turned heads in the preseason, registering a half-sack against the Raiders and then bringing down Mark Sanchez in the backfield Saturday against the Bears. “Kareem Martin had a hell of a game,” coach Bruce Arians said. Martin is a former defensive end who is built a little differently than Okafor – Martin is two inches taller and 12 pounds heavier. (Arizona Cardinals)

UNC QB Competition Still Ongoing

While North Carolina’s training camp has come to a close, its quarterback competition has not. “We’ve still got a ways to go before somebody separates themselves, but I like the way they’re competing,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said after practice on Monday. Brandon Harris, Nathan Elliott and Chazz Surratt will enter game prep for the season opener still in contention (Inside Carolina)

As camp ends, no UNC QB has eclipsed the rest

It would take an astronomical event for UNC coach Larry Fedora to tip his hand regarding any personnel decision he doesn’t have to. An actual astronomical event in the form of a solar eclipse came and went on Monday, and that was only slightly more interesting to Fedora than sharing who will start at quarterback for the Tar Heels when they host California in the season-opener. (Greensboro News & Record)

Larry Fedora Not Showing His Hand About UNC's QB Situation

North Carolina’s third scrimmage of fall camp this past Saturday was it’s best, head coach Larry Fedora said.

Dajuan Drennon 'Hungry' in Return from Injuries

As his Tar Heel career winds down, the available snaps no longer seem limitless for Dajuan Drennon. As the days and reps pile up, the end steps ever so much closer. “He’s hungry,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said. “When you have an injury where you miss extensive playing time, you start realizing what’s at stake when you do get injured, so I think he’s hungry.” (Inside Carolina)

UNC Welcomes New Students to Campus

The largest first-year class in UNCl’s history, the Class of 2021 is already an accomplished group. They are veterans, community leaders and activists.
