Wainstein’s report into irregular classes released

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Wednesday announced the results of an independent investigation conducted by former federal prosecutor Kenneth Wainstein into past academic irregularities at Carolina and took immediate action to address the findings. Wednesday’s actions build on the reforms already undertaken in the years since first learning about the issues. (UNC.edu)

Red-hot Marquise Williams hopes UNC can replicate last year's finish

Marquise Williams had helped engineer a 6-1 finish for the Tar Heels last season following a 1-5 start, raising 2014 expectations that made the program's 2-4 start this fall all the more disappointing. Still, with Williams back in charge with five games to go, last year's finish is a good starting point for how UNC can turn things around again. (ESPN.com)

I Can’t Quit You, UNC Football

Carolina is only 1-2 in ACC play and still very much in contention for the #WideOpenCoastal. I’m telling myself that UNC’s only real “bad loss” was against Virginia Tech and that was when Fedora was still rotating quarterbacks. None of the remaining opponents are as formidable as ECU, Clemson, or Notre Dame. In other words I am in full blown relapse mode. I can’t quit you UNC football. (Raleigh & Company)

Scouting the Schedule: A Look at UNC's Remaining Opponents

At 3-4, UNC would have to win three of its last five games to secure bowl eligibility. The good news is there are no monsters on the schedule like there were in the first six games; on the other hand, there are no real lemons either. Here is a look at how the remaining five teams on UNC's schedule made out this week and where their seasons stand: (Tar Heel Blog)

Less is More? Paige’s Scoring Burden Lifted

Preseason All-America pick Marcus Paige carried the offensive load for UNC last season. But this year, Paige is hoping improved balance will ease his scoring burden. The Tar Heels appear to have a stacked lineup of scoring options that includes transformed returning players in Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks and uber-talented freshmen like Joel Berry and Justin Jackson. (Chapelboro.com)

UVa focused on stopping UNC's Marquise Williams

The Cavaliers will need another dynamite effort on defense Saturday as their bowl hopes hang in the balance. UNC quarterback Marquise Williams, who ranks 17th in total offense at 318 yards per game, is coming to Charlottesville and is playing the best football of his career. The Virginia defense has been among the best in the country, though, and Williams will have his hands full. (ESPN.com)

Carolina Rundown: October 22

Roy Williams will return to Lawrence on Monday for a celebration of Allen Fieldhouse. 11 points and six boards for Ed Davis off the bench last night for the Lakers. Harrison Barnes had 10 and six. Reggie Bullock had a bucket for the Clippers. Just one Tar Heel on Phil Steele's midseason All-ACC football team, as Landon Turner earned a second-team selection. (GoHeels.com)

T.J. Logan key to UNC turnaround

After last Saturday’s win against Georgia Tech, UNC now controls its own destiny to win the ACC Coastal Division and gain a berth in the conference championship game for the first time in school history. But if the Tar Heels are going to win their final five games of 2014, they are going to need a repeat of the late-2013 performance put on by running back T.J. Logan. (Carolina Blue)

College basketball conference previews: ACC

It’s a joy to watch Marcus Paige play basketball, and players like that should be celebrated. The problem is it often seemed like the Tar Heels spent too much time watching Marcus Paige play and not enough time playing with him. That has to change or the Heels will fall behind in a crowded ACC. (Sports Illustrated)

Extra Points: One And Counting

Good news for the Tar Heels is that Virginia's roster evolution over the last decade shows it currently has only three players from the state of North Carolina, and one of them is a kicker and neither of the others is on the two-deep. That's a pleasant development indeed given Virginia's proclivity the last three decades to harvest players from south of the border. (GoHeels.com)

Wainstein Report Primer

Kenneth L. Wainstein is a former Department of Justice attorney now in private practice for a firm in Washington, DC. He has a long history of conducting various internal investigations at corporations. Prior to starting his probe into UNC's academic scandal, Wainstein investigated whether NCAA Enforcement officials acted improperly during the Miami football violations case. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC’s offense learning to share ball

North Carolina’s football team has begun trying a new tactic in recent weeks: using running backs to run. While quarterback Marquise Williams continues to be the focal point of the offense and put up gaudy statistics against both Notre Dame and Georgia Tech, 898 yards of total offense, the offense is finding a bit of balance, as well.

Is Reilly Hovis a future pro baseball draft pick? His college coach thinks so
