‘O.K. is never Okay': Larry Fedora Wants More from Tar Heels

UNC head football coach Larry Fedora says tasting success last weekend should motivate his 3-4 Tar Heels to want to experience more of it. And that’s a good thing for the Carolina skipper who knows there’s plenty to work on in all three phases of the game. Despite a four-game losing streak, UNC’s 48-43 win over Georgia Tech puts the Tar Heels right back into the ACC Coastal conversation. (Chapelboro.com)

Carolina Rundown: October 21

It's sounding like James Michael McAdoo has a very real chance of making the Warriors. Raymond Felton is making some progress from his ankle injury. John Henson had a double-double (11/10) last night, and Kendall Marshall added six points and five rebounds. P.J. Hairston had 11. Julius Peppers is being credited as the missing piece in Green Bay. (GoHeels.com)

Cavs' trouble with touchdowns could be issue against UNC

Discussion of Virginia’s red-zone difficulties Saturday may be obscuring an even bigger issue. The Cavaliers (4-3, 2-1) have scored one touchdown in the past six quarters. That’s not a good omen as Virginia prepares to entertain a North Carolina team that has failed to score more than 30 points only once in seven games. (Lynchburg News & Advance)

Turner's Take: Monday Musings

Perhaps lost in the headlines with Marquise Williams and Ryan Switzer being named ACC Offensive Player and Receiver of the Week, respectively, is the improved play of the Tar Heel offensive line. The young group looked lost at times early in the season but has begun to put things together and allow plays to develop. “Those guys are unbelievable,” Williams said. (GoHeels.com)

2014-15 UNC Basketball Yearbook Available Online

The 2014-15 North Carolina men's basketball yearbook is now available online exclusively at GoHeels.com. The official team yearbook includes all the latest, updated information on the Tar Heels, including player and coach bios, history, records and more. (GoHeels.com)

Virginia Hosts UNC, Cavs Tied Atop ACC Coastal

Virginia hosts North Carolina at Scott Stadium for homecoming this Saturday. The Cavaliers are coming off a 20-13 loss at Duke, but still remain tied for first place in the ACC Coastal Division with Duke and Pitt. The Tar Heels are coming off a 48-43 win over Georgia Tech, in a game where UNC quarterback Marquise Williams passed for close to 400-yards and four touchdowns. (NBC 29)

Virginia meets defenseless North Carolina in swing game

The highest-scoring game in Scott Stadium's 84-year history was Virginia's 63-47 victory over Tulane in 1968. Might that benchmark be threatened Saturday when the Cavaliers face North Carolina? Virginia's defensive excellence this season screams "no." In seven games, the Cavaliers have allowed more than 28 points only once, in a 41-33 setback at Brigham Young. (Daily Press)

Bethel: Mary Willingham's "Literacy before Legacy" Campaign

Monday Mary Willingham launched "Literacy before Legacy," a campaign to raise $120,000 to establish a literacy program for college athletes. Furthermore, she hopes to begin the program in January 2015, less than three months from now, though she has offered no details on how the program would be structured or who would be part of her "team of experts." (Coaching the Mind)

The Magic of Marquise

Marquise Williams has accumulated 898 yards of total offense in the past two games, also a school record, and is one of six players in the country who leads his team in passing (1,776 yards) and rushing (448 yards). He is second in the ACC in total offense (317.7) behind Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Defensive Progress Required

The Coastal race is playing out as many pundits projected during the offseason. That is, a modern day version of the Wild West. All seven teams have at least one win and at least one loss with the majority of ACC games yet to be played. UNC (3-4, 1-2 ACC) is in contention but no longer in control of its destiny. Defense will likely determine if either of those dynamics change in the coming weeks. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Monday Press Conference Quotes

Larry Fedora: “Finishing up last week’s game, we were able to go back, there were a lot of things that we were able to pull from this game that will hopefully pay off for us in the future as we continue to grow in all three phases. We still have a lot of work to do in all three phases and we understand that, but I do believe we are showing some improvement.” (Inside Carolina)

Marquise Williams still strives for more

For the second consecutive week, UNC quarterback Marquise Williams was named the ACC offensive back of the week. The junior is playing his best football of the season, and both he and coach Larry Fedora have a pretty simple explanation for it — rhythm. "I really think it's more, he's gotten into a good rhythm and he's gotten comfortable," Fedora said. (Carolina Blue)

Marquise Williams coming up big, has UNC's offense rolling

Marquise Williams suddenly has UNC's quarterback job to himself. And the Tar Heels' offense is rolling. After spending the first month rotating with backup Mitch Trubisky, Williams has led UNC from start-to-finish in the past two games. With Williams putting up big numbers, the Tar Heels are consistently finishing drives in the end zone to build momentum heading into Saturday's trip to Virginia. (Associated Press)

Ryan Switzer's Emergence at Wide Receiver

Sophomore wide receiver Ryan Switzer had a career night on Saturday as his big plays helped spark the North Carolina offense in its 48-43 win over Georgia Tech. Larry Fedora knew coming into last weekend that his offense was going to need to a healthy dose of explosive plays in order to keep pace with a Georgia Tech offense averaging over 33 points per game.
