Chase Rice just chasing his dream

Chase Rice's story is a real-life "Forrest Gump" script. Rice is a successful country music singer. He has a song on the radio. Rice also co-wrote one of the most successful commercial country music songs of all time, played major college football, almost won the TV reality show "Survivor" and tossed aside a potential career in NASCAR because his heart was in Nashville. He is 27 years old. (ESPN.com)

Andrew Miller discusses his transition since joining the Orioles

Since Andrew Miller came to the Orioles three weeks ago, the adjustment has been a smooth one. In eight games, he has allowed a run on just two hits in 7 1/3 innings. He’s walked three and struck out 11. The Orioles are 6-2 in the games he’s pitched. “Overall, it’s been great,” Miller said. “Everybody’s been so welcoming. Everybody’s gone out of their way to make my transition easier." (CSN Baltimore)

2014 UNC Season Preview: Linebackers

Among UNC's two central linebackers, junior Jeff Schoettmer and senior Travis Hughes are positioned to be the starters and impact players across the defense. Linebacker coach Ron West has particularly singled out Hughes as being exceptionally sharp in scrimmages and training camp. At the bandit spot senior Norkeithus Otis appears to be penciled in as the starter. (Tar Heel Blog)

The UNC Media Scandal: “Whatever,” Rosa and Bill

One of the last and weakest arguments of deceptive people is “You can’t shoot the messenger.” But there is a moral responsibility to figuratively shoot a messenger bearing false claims. The local and national media ignored that moral responsibility with respect to Mary Willingham; and in their attempts to scandalize UNC, they scandalized themselves. (Coaching the Mind)

UNC's inexperienced O-line must come together in a hurry

UNC is looking good at quarterback, running back and wide receiver, but there are plenty of issues where it matters most -- in the trenches, along the offensive line. The Tar Heels' O-line had an up-and-down campaign last season, struggling early on and then getting sharper as the schedule eased up. Now, this year's group will be down two O-linemen -- left tackle James Hurst (49 career starts) and center Russell Bodine. (Fox Sports Carolinas)

He was never too busy to help a friend or to listen to an idea.” (Daily Tar Heel)

Quarterback faceoff: Larry Fedora must choose starting quarterback soon

While Mitch Trubisky watched from the sidelines last season, Marquise Williams completed 126 of 217 pass attempts for 1,698 yards and 15 touchdowns. The 6-foot-2 redshirt junior also led UNC in rushing with 536 yards and six touchdowns. But Trubisky said the one thing that Williams has helped him with the most doesn’t even involve a football. It’s confidence. (Daily Tar Heel)

Q&A with basketball alum Jerry Stackhouse

On Wednesday, former UNC basketball player Jerry Stackhouse sat down for an interview with journalism professor Charlie Tuggle, Sports Focus and The Daily Tar Heel. Stackhouse, the 1995 National Player of the Year, discussed whether or not student-athletes should be paid, as well as how the Power 5 conferences play a role in that payment structure.

UNC QB, PK Positions Remain Open with WR Talent Aplenty

Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky has been toiling over the opportunity to snag the top spot on the depth chart away from junior Marquise Williams the entire offseason. And with the home opener only nine days away, a starter has yet to be named by head coach Larry Fedora. It appears both quarterbacks are likely set to see game action, at least for the first couple of weeks. (Chapelboro.com)
