Meet a Tar Heel: Retired professor Aris Domnas

From cross-country skiing across Quebec’s snow-covered landscapes to physical training in the Canadian Army, Aris Domnas has never strayed from breaking a sweat. Now in his early 90s, the retired Carolina biochemistry professor isn’t shying away from the active lifestyle he has always led. “I always did it,” he said. “It’s almost inborn.” (UNC.edu)

Marcus Paige on the Mend

Marcus Paige joked with his teammates that he was back after his game-winning layup against Louisville earlier this month. As No. 13 North Carolina prepares for Saturday’s rematch, Paige is finally playing up to his Preseason ACC Player of the Year status. While Paige said he’s still experiencing some pain in his foot when he has to sprint the full length of the court, he’s on the mend. (Inside Carolina)

College Baseball Preview Capsules: #17 North Carolina

Last season was never going to be easy for North Carolina. After a trip to Omaha, the draft sliced UNC’s lineup in half and pilfered two-thirds of its weekend rotation. Still, head coach Mike Fox managed to navigate his young Tar Heels to a regional. And with the overwhelming majority of that group back this year, UNC will surely take a step forward this season...right? (Baseball America)

FCS Opponents Place Premium on 7 Wins for UNC

North Carolina’s 2015 football schedule includes two FCS opponents, which could potentially bring recently updated NCAA bowl eligibility requirements into play if the Tar Heels finish the regular season with a 6-6 record for the third consecutive season. UNC hosts MEAC member North Carolina A&T on Sept. 12 and CAA member Delaware on Sept. 26. (Inside Carolina)

UNC’s Sasha Seymore Following His Dreams

UNC’s Sasha Seymore is used to winning titles… but not always in basketball. Despite being the senior class president and the recipient of the most prestigious scholarship UNC offers, Carolina basketball player may just be the sweetest title yet. Seymore played in six games as a walk-on for the Tar Heels before tearing his ACL in a game against Alabama-Birmingham. (Chapelboro.com)

Improving Britt's Quiet Confidence

Nate Britt has had his share of adversity in the last couple of weeks, both on and off the court. The Upper Marlboro, Md., native lost his grandfather on the day of UNC’s 81-79 victory over NC State and then injured his mouth two games later against Wake Forest. But despite the 15 stitches that were still in his lip on Monday night, and in honor of his grandfather, Britt gave his best performance of the year. (GoHeels.com)

Video: Young UNC Fan Gets Into National Anthem

The son of Eric Hoots, who is UNC's director of player development, at UNC-Syracuse on Monday night stands with his head down for the National Anthem and after it's over pulls his shirt off to reveal his game jersey, just like the players. Go ahead and offer this kid Roy, he's a gamer. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Votes for NCAA Autonomy

The five power conferences in the NCAA, including the Atlantic Coast Conference, have voted in favor of autonomy when determining guidelines governing student athletes. The decision was made at a meeting with university leaders from around the nation. UNC Chancellor Carol Folt says the conference included 80 members, one from each of the 65 universities in the power conferences along with 15 students. (Chapelboro.com)

Video: Wayne Ellington After Career-High 28 Points

Despite career-high performances from both Wayne Ellington and rookie Jordan Clarkson, combining for half of the Los Angeles Lakers 92 points, the Lakers lost by six points to the Washington Wizards Tuesday night. In addition to Ellington’s 28 points, his 12 made field goals were also a new career-high. (Lakers Nation)

Analyzing UNC's 2015 Football Schedule

UNC's farthest road game is at Pittsburgh followed by Atlanta, then Blacksburg. UNC won't leave the state of North Carolina until October 3rd and play every game within a 500 miles radius of Chapel Hill. Unlike the past two seasons, there is just one bye week in 2015. Unfortunately for UNC is comes after the Heels play Georgia Tech instead of before which is ideal when facing the triple-option. (Tar Heel Blog)

Lucas: Rapid Schedule Reactions

The opener against South Carolina is big for all kinds of reasons—a marquee matchup against an SEC opponent, a likely national television appearance, and a chance to make a dent in a series the Gamecocks have controlled lately. But the release of the schedule shows that the impression the Tar Heels make on Sept. 3 in Charlotte is likely to linger for the rest of the month. (GoHeels.com)

UNC 2015 Football Schedule Announced

A season-opening game in Charlotte against South Carolina, seven home games at Kenan Stadium and a Thursday night road game at Pittsburgh highlight the 2015 North Carolina football schedule, announced Thursday by the ACC. Carolina also closes the season against NC State for the second consecutive year and just the fifth time overall. (GoHeels.com)

Carolina innovation creates jobs, revenue

Startups are a booming business at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. More than 150 North Carolina companies have spun out of UNC, many from the University’s research. They generate more than $7 billion in revenue in the state each year, providing nearly 8,000 jobs to residents and 38,000 jobs worldwide. (UNC.edu)

Titus’s Top 12: UNC a more athletic, more uptempo, less bulky version of Arizona

Marcus Paige is back to playing like an All-American. Kennedy Meeks has been great all year. J.P. Tokoto has expanded his game so much that calling him a mere “dunker” is a huge slap in the face. Brice Johnson is one of the most underrated players in college basketball. And Justin Jackson is the best freshman in the nation who never gets mentioned in “best freshmen” discussions. (Grantland)

Kyle Seager Named On All-Underrated Team

On the current list, Mariners fans will be happy – albeit somewhat surprised perhaps – to find a familiar face: Third baseman Kyle Seager. Seager may be underrated by the rest of the league, but for Mariners fans and the Mariners organization in general, it’s hard to find the All-Star, Gold Glove third baseman to be underrated. (Sodo Mojo)

Why the Wake-UNC non-conference series should start a trend (please)

There's no bigger component of college football tradition than a classic rivalry game, which is why when ancient ACC rivals North Carolina and Wake Forest announced Monday they would face each other in a pair of non-conference games outside the ACC schedule in 2019 and 2021, college football fans reacted with universal applause and acclamation. (CBS Sports)

One on One with J.P. Tokoto

J.P. Tokoto: "I’ve always been able to hit an open teammate and use that court vision. I played a lot of point guard my senior year of high school, so I feel like that helped a lot in transitioning to college. As far as anything changing, I worked on my ball-handling, which helps a lot, I don’t have to look down at the ball at all when I’m dribbling. I feel like it just comes down to teammates finishing plays." (GoHeels.com)

UNC Football Facelift

Larry Fedora’s makeover of Carolina football continues this month after a lackluster 6-7 2014 season. Last Monday, the program officially announced the arrival of Gene Chizik as defensive coordinator. Chizik brings a championship pedigree to Chapel Hill. But even prior to Chizik’s announcement, the Tar Heels added ten January enrollees to the roster - the most in Carolina history. (GoHeels.com)

Position that needs improvement: North Carolina

Every team has issues to address this offseason, and this week, we're taking a look at the most glaring holes for each ACC team and figuring out where they might find answers between now and the season opener. North Carolina position to improve: Secondary. Why it was a problem: UNC had issues all over the defense in 2014, but it was particularly vulnerable to the pass. (ESPN.com)
