Brandon Robinson trashed Bojangles and people are PO'd

Look, I don’t always put my cape on. Especially when it comes to fast food establishments. But Brandon Robinson, a guard at UNC, went too far with this awful, no good, very bad food take about Bojangles. It got to the point where someone had to step in and talk sense into him. A’Ja Wilson, a forward for South Carolina’s women’s basketball team, was the hero we needed. (SB Nation)

Hear Chase Rice Praise Country Songs in New 'Three Chords and the Truth'

Chase Rice is talking like a new believer after a year of upheaval that saw him leaving Columbia to sign with Broken Bow Records in June. His first single from his upcoming album shows that the North Carolinian has taken a hard left from his bro-country days to arrive at the impassioned "Three Chords & the Truth," a Nashville song through and through. (Rolling Stone)

Lucas: Cam Johnson Adjusting To New Home

Cam Johnson, a graduate transfer from Pitt, has spent the past month on campus getting acquainted with his new surroundings. He's already graduated, and was unable to begin classes until the fall, so most of his summer days have been spent learning about his new teammates and program, with daily pickup games that include the current team and a host of alums.

Roy Williams on Cameron Johnson

"Something like getting Cameron Johnson -- it was the most exhausting thing I have ever gone through," North Carolina coach Roy Williams said on a recent edition of the Carolina Insider Podcast.

Chansky’s Notebook: Changing Of The Sod

If you have been to a UNC Baseball game recently or driven along Ridge Road, you have seen the renovation project across from Boshamer Stadium that looks more like a war zone than a multi-million face lift for Fetzer Field and the new football practice facilities. Well, it will be inside Kenan Stadium, which leaves UNC with a decision to make about the playing field. (Chapelboro.com)

Jawad Williams: Summer on the Hill

It’s great to walk in to the gym late at night to get a workout in and see the some of the current guys in there doing the same. For this upcoming season, I am predicting another National Championship. The team has added a very good experienced player in Cam Johnson from Pitt. I think he will fit in perfectly at UNC. A group of very talented freshmen have also been added to the mix. (Jawad Williams)

Seniors leave gap on North Carolina basketball team

The departure of Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks and Nate Britt will spur just as many questions for UNC this season as Justin Jackson and Tony Bradley's. After all, the Tar Heels won’t know exactly what to expect from their frontcourt or their No. 2 point guard. Meeks and Hicks led the most formidable rebounding frontcourt in college basketball last year. (Daily Tar Heel)

More fame, same Luke Maye

Luke Maye’s life has been very different ever since he spotted up just inside the arc, caught a Theo Pinson pass and let go a shot that’s already cemented in UNC basketball history.

(Daily Tar Heel)

(Cincinnati Enquirer)

M.J. Stewart: "I Want to Make People Remember Who I Am"

This fall the UNC secondary will revolve around M.J. Stewart, and new Tar Heel defensive backs coach Terry Joseph said as much in February. "It all starts with M.J. He played well last year. He is an NFL corner. He can go inside and play nickel. He is the prototypical guy that they look for at that level. He can cover, he can tackle, he plays the ball down the field." (Inside Carolina)

No more suds at Bub’s as Chapel Hill bar closes after 30 years

After serving customers for 30 years on Rosemary Street in Chapel Hill, Bub O’Malley’s closed its doors for good last Saturday.

Brandon Harris and the UNC Offense

Larry Fedora is approaching UNC's preseason camp, which begins next week, with an open quarterback competition.

Thought for the Day
I learned pretty quickly that this isn't all about me and what I can do for myself, but what I can do for other people. Once I learned that, it made life more enjoyable. The greatest joy we find in life is making other people happy.
