Dajuan Drennon 'Hungry' in Return from Injuries

As his Tar Heel career winds down, the available snaps no longer seem limitless for Dajuan Drennon. As the days and reps pile up, the end steps ever so much closer. “He’s hungry,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said. “When you have an injury where you miss extensive playing time, you start realizing what’s at stake when you do get injured, so I think he’s hungry.” (Inside Carolina)

UNC Welcomes New Students to Campus

The largest first-year class in UNCl’s history, the Class of 2021 is already an accomplished group. They are veterans, community leaders and activists. They’re champion student-athletes, entrepreneurs and innovators (Video: Dorm move-in day). Chancellor Carol Folt challenged the students to set their goals even higher as Tar Heels. (UNC.edu)

Andrew Miller returns for Indians

The Cleveland Indians got a major part of their bullpen back just in time for this weekend's key divisional clash with the Kansas City Royals. Relief ace Andrew Miller pitched two-thirds of an inning in the Tribe's 10-1 win in Friday night's series opener after being activated from the 10-day disabled list, following his bout with right knee soreness.

No More Nerves For Carl Tucker

UNC tight end Carl Tucker played in all 13 games last season, starting the majority of them, and ended up with 9 receptions for 130 yards, including 54-yard touchdown at Duke, which was mostly his legs doing the work after catching the pass. Even while the nerves were gone, once in a while uncertainty would creep in. That’s typical for most first-year players. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Heather O’Reilly wins award for community work while playing in England

Former United States international Heather O'Reilly has helped to inspire many of the young people we work with over the past year. As well as making a number of trips to Arsenal's community hub to meet with our girls' football groups, she has played a big role in supporting girls' football teams close to our training ground in Hertfordshire.

UNC-Chapel Hill student creates parent-pending 3-D printing process for orthodontics

When Dr. Ching-Chang Ko first saw Christina Bonebreak Jackson’s application to the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry, he knew he wanted someone with her unique background to learn orthodontics. After all, few of the other 230 applicants in the 2014 class had a bachelor’s of science degree in mechanical engineering from MIT. (UNC System News)

Davis Love III approaches one of his goals

In what has become almost an annual ritual at the Wyndham Championship, a gallery packed the bleachers behind the practice range today watching Davis Love III hit balls. Later, as he climbed the hill back to the clubhouse, he was stopped every 10 feet by autograph hunters. To the Wyndham, Love has emerged as a replacement of sorts for Sam Snead. (Greensboro News & Record)

Tar Heel NFL Preseason week 2 recap

Many rookie Tar Heels in the NFL had coming out parties in their NFL debuts, most notably T.J. Logan, Mack Hollins, and Mitch Trubisky. The hope was that they could ride that momentum into future weeks, and their former teammates who didn’t turn as many heads could join them. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case this weekend, as only Trubisky got to really shine. (Tar Heel Blog)

Mitch Trubisky latest in long line of Bears saviors at quarterback

The momentary relief from quarterback mistrust was pleasant and shall pass as it inevitably does. Nothing is more temporary than faith that the Bears have found their guy. Chicago's favorite quarterback is always the one who is not playing. Those who would elevate rookie Mitch Trubisky from whim to savior fail to recognize that being unfailed is a safer credential than being exposed. (Chicago Tribune)

Astros' Colin Moran may return from facial fracture in September

On Thursday, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said something he never thought he would: third baseman Colin Moran may return from his ghastly injury and play for the Astros in September. Moran suffered a facial fracture when he fouled a ball into his face on July 23. After receiving surgery about a week later, Moran recently began working out at the Astros' minor league complex. (Houston Chronicle)

Aerial Glimpse of UNC Football Construction

North Carolina football's new indoor facility is set to open in time for the 2018 season. The massive construction project also includes a revamped stadium for Fetzer field (soccer and lacrosse), and two full outdoor football practice fields. The construction started in May. Lee Pace posted this photo of what the construction looks like up to this point. (Inside Carolina)

Saturday UNC Football Scrimmage Notes

Brandon Harris' arm strength might be his greatest asset, and he showed why multiple times on Saturday. In addition to his 30-yard touchdown to Devin Perry, Harris also completed passes of 44 and 45 yards. One of his best throws of the day came early, when he rolled right and found Brandon Fritts for 28 yards on a crossing route. Three of Perry's catches on Saturday went for 90 yards. (GoHeels.com)

Nine teams in seven years: I’ve been everywhere, man

From the time he was in fourth grade, growing up a Cowboys fan in tiny Tarboro, N.C., then as a Tar Heels running back, Shaun Draughn wanted this career, this life. How could he have possibly imagined that he would bounce from the Redskins to the Chiefs to the Ravens to the Colts to the Bears to the Chargers to the Browns to the 49ers and now … to the Giants? (New York Post)

North Carolina’s QB race doesn’t stop at the starting job

Brandon Harris didn’t enroll at UNC to watch games from the sideline. The former LSU quarterback picked Chapel Hill as his transfer destination with plans to be the starter. Three others are also competing for the top job, but Harris’ experience is a tremendous built-in advantage. Barring a surprise, Harris will be the first player to line up behind center on Sept. 2. (FanRag Sports)

Extra Points: Game Plans, Plural

Will UNC's offense find the arm strength and throwing prowess of transfer quarterback Brandon Harris is the answer? Perhaps the confidence and experience of Nathan Elliott, the only quarterback on the roster to throw a pass as a Tar Heel? Will it be the athletic dexterity and running ability of Chazz Surratt? There are so many plans, so few answers right now. (GoHeels.com)

Joel Berry II’s touching encounter with grieving fan

When you are the starting point guard at North Carolina and a preseason All-American coming off of a season where your team won the national title while you won the Final Four Most Outstanding Player award, getting recognized in Chapel Hill comes with the territory. Joel Berry II should expect it when he goes out to eat. (NBC Sports)
