UNC Comeback Falls Just Short in Volleyball Thriller in Louisville

North Carolina erased an 0-2 deficit to force a deciding fifth set at Louisville on Sunday, but the Cardinals held on to win, 15-11, to take the match, 3-2. It was the second time this season that the Tar Heels returned from trailing two sets to none against the Cardinals. With the win, Louisville remains tied for first place in the ACC at 22-6 (16-2 ACC), while UNC falls to 14-12 (11-7 ACC). (GoHeels.com)

Austin Proehl Made It Back For Senior Day

On Sept. 25, Austin Proehl underwent surgery. His father Ricky, a former Wake Forest receiver who spent 17 years in the NFL, was among the first to greet him following the procedure. He asked Austin then if he planned on returning this season. There was never any doubt. "I told them, 'I want to come back,'" Austin said. "And they all looked at me kind of crazy." (GoHeels.com)

Extra Points: It Matters

Austin Proehl was adamant since having surgery that he would come back, despite caution from the doctors. "I wanted to show guys that it matters. Regardless of our record, with all that's going on on the outside and what people are saying about us, that it matters. I'm not going to just hang it up because of our record. It's bigger than that. It's bigger than me." (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels Riding Momentum into Football Season Finale

North Carolina has no chance to play in a bowl game or to have a winning season. On the other hand, the Tar Heels now have two things that seemed just as elusive three weeks ago: momentum and confidence. UNC (3-8) kept the good times rolling in a 65-10 victory over Western Carolina on Saturday, winning for the second week in a row after starting the season 1-8. (Inside Carolina)

David October Sees The Big Picture

David October plans on returning to England one day, where he hopes to teach others about the benefits of the American soccer system. "Life is not about living until your 32 and you give up football," he said. "What are you going to do then?" October might have seemed destined to face that question. But he discovered much more at UNC, outside of England and soccer. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Basketball Visits Stanford To Open Road Trip

The Tar Heels play the first of three non-conference road games on Monday, Nov. 20 at Stanford (11:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2). UNC is 10-0 against the Cardinal, including 2-0 in Chapel Hill, 1-0 at Maples Pavilion and 7-0 at neutral sites. The Cardinal is coached by Jerod Haase, who played for Coach Williams at Kansas and was a member of the UNC staff from 2003-12. (GoHeels.com)

Joe Wolf proud he didn't take shortcuts in coaching career

The youngest of seven children, Joe Wolf’s desire to play far from home led to his playing for legendary coach Dean Smith at UNC. He even crossed paths with Michael Jordan during Wolf’s freshman and Jordan’s junior season in Chapel Hill. He now finds himself as an assistant at UNC-Wilmington under C.B. McGrath, all because of his connections at North Carolina. (Sheboygan Press)

Eric Ebron to Mitchell Trubisky: I look forward to kicking your you-know-what

Lions tight end Eric Ebron was heading into his final year at North Carolina. People were already talking about how highly, not if, he'd be drafted. Then one day a freshman quarterback walks into the building, and starts throwing lasers. "He was on the practice squad," Ebron said, "and I was just amazed how well he threw the football." That quarterback? Mitch Trubisky. (MLive.com)

Bruce Carter delivers 400 turkeys to hometown during Jets' off week

Harlowe is a small community near Havelock, quite the opposite of New York City where Bruce Carter plays linebacker for the Jets. But that doesn't keep him from coming home. "To take care of people in this community is a great thing." This is the third year Carter has given turkeys to families in Harlowe. Carter gave away more than 400 turkeys. (WCTI12.com)

Tar Heels clobber Catamounts in home finale

Quarterback Nathan Elliott, in his first home start, threw four touchdown passes as North Carolina trounced Western Carolina 65-10 Saturday at Kenan Stadium. The outcome gave UNC (3-8) a two-game winning streak heading to next Saturday’s finale at NC State. The Tar Heels scored three touchdowns in less than a three-minute span early in the second quarter. (Burlington Times News)

Austin Proehl's Drive to Return

Austin Proehl’s career as a Tar Heel was supposed to be over. When the senior broke his clavicle against Duke on Sept. 23, he was declared “out for season.” But on Saturday there he was. The decision for Proehl to be able to play in the home finale was made earlier in the week, but the Charlotte native said that he knew the moment he stepped onto the road to recovery. (Inside Carolina)

Turner's Take: Something Bigger

He didn’t have to come back. Austin Proehl could have packed it in and taken it easy, rested for Pro Day or the Combine and gotten ready for the NFL Draft process. He didn’t have to come back, but he did. For his brothers in the locker room. For his brother in Greenville. For the love of the game. For his last game as a Tar Heel. It’s about something bigger. (Argyle Report)

Austin Proehl Makes Triumphant Return in UNC’s Victory Over Western Carolina

With it being Senior Day at Kenan Stadium, there was no chance Austin Proehl was going to miss an opportunity to put his Tar Heel uniform on one final time in front of the home fans. “He wanted to play, and he wanted to get back out there with his teammates,” coach Larry Fedora said after the game. “So I was happy for him, and happy to see him get that opportunity.” (Chapelboro.com)

Larry Fedora Post-Western Carolina Quotes

Larry Fedora: “I’m proud of our guys, especially the seniors. Our seniors have done a tremendous job of keeping the locker room positive and keeping our guys playing hard no matter what the situation was. I said it from the beginning, these guys love each other and play hard for each other and I’m proud to have coached them this year and we have one more to finish it up.” (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels End Season at Kenan Stadium With 65-10 Drubbing of Western Carolina

Saturday saw the UNC football team pick up its first home victory this season, as the Tar Heels rolled to a 65-10 demolition over Western Carolina. It was the final game at Kenan Stadium for the UNC seniors, but it also marked the first career home start for sophomore quarterback Nathan Elliott–who led the Tar Heels to a win at Pittsburgh last week in his first start.

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Western Carolina

On a day when almost everything went right, it was fitting to have receiver Austin Proehl back on the field. The senior has worked hard to come back from what was thought to be a season-ending collarbone injury. Proehl had three catches for 52 yards in his return. Put UNC's last two victories together, and now the Tar Heels have the opportunity to go to Raleigh with momentum. (GoHeels.com)
