What To Watch For: Fayetteville State

Carolina takes on Fayetteville State tonight in exhibition play. Here are four things to keep your eye on whether you're at the Smith Center or watching on GoHeelsTV. Kennedy Meeks could become a more well-rounded player for the Tar Heels in his sophomore season, now that he’s not as well rounded. (GoHeels.com)

Countdown to Kickoff: Virginia

North Carolina and Virginia will renew the “Oldest Rivalry in the South” in an ACC Coastal Division tilt at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville on Saturday (12:30pm/ACCN). The Tar Heels (3-4, 1-2 ACC) and Cavaliers (4-3, 2-1 ACC) will play for the 119th time this weekend, marking the nation’s third-most played series. (Inside Carolina)

Six storylines: UNC-Virginia

The North Carolina offensive line will play its third consecutive game with all five of their starting big men healthy and ready to play. It appears the O-line is finally starting to become a more cohesive group, playing their best football as the season hits the home stretch. The Cavaliers’ defense has 23 sacks so far this season, which is the 11th best total in the country. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels Wrap Fall World Series at DAP

The UNC baseball team wrapped up their fall practice period with the annual intrasquad Fall World Series on Sunday. Unlike in previous years, when the Series was played over seven games, Mike Fox and his staff opted to play three series of three games each on consecutive weekends. Sunday night, the team played the finale in Durham Athletic Park. (GoHeels.com)

Another way at UNC

The eight-month investigation by Kenneth Wainstein found, as did seven previous investigations, that the bogus courses were not created to keep athletes eligible, and that coaches at UNC did not steer athletes in need of a parachute toward those classes — a narrative that has been pushed by major media in this state, both implicitly and explicitly. That doesn’t allow UNC athletics to wiggle of the hook. (The Robesonian)

UNC Basketball Holds First Exhibition Game Tonight

Unlike the past few years, UNC is eschewing the not-so-secret scrimmage and playing two public exhibition games instead of just one. The first one is tonight against Division II school Fayetteville State. Clearly there isn't a ton of value in these games given the level of competition other than getting a first look at the starting lineup and the rotations. (Tar Heel Blog)

ACC viewer's guide: Week 9

UNC at Virginia: Marquise Williams is coming off consecutive career outings. Virginia is looking to get back on the winning track after losing to reigning Coastal division champion Duke last week. Can its defense make another big stand and make life difficult for the red-hot UNC offense? Or have the Heels found their second-half groove after a poor start, much like they did last year? (ESPN.com)

Art’s Angle: You Know Who You Are

The Wainstein report is filled with testimony from people who knew enough to blow a whistle and others who were so uninformed or uncaring that, when asked, they said Crowder was a faculty professor. How can that possibly happen, Mr. Chancellor, Mr. Athletic Director, Mr. or Ms. Dean; Professor, Teaching Assistant, Academic Advisor, Tutor or anyone hanging around long enough to smell something fishy? (Chapelboro.com)

UNC Aims For Fifth Straight Win In ‘South’s Oldest Rivalry’

The North Carolina football team, 3-4 overall and 1-2 in the ACC, will travel up the road to Charlottesville and take on the Virginia Cavaliers, 4-3 overall and 2-1 in conference, Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in a pivotal Coastal division matchup. Carolina has dominated the South’s Oldest Rivalry in recent years, having won four straight with an average margin of victory of 25 points. (Chapelboro.com)

Watch UNC-Fayetteville State Basketball Friday On GoHeels TV

The North Carolina men's basketball team opens exhibition play for the 2014-15 season on Friday night against Fayetteville State, and the only way to watch the game online is on GoHeels.com. GoHeels TV also will stream the Tar Heels' exhibition game on Nov. 7 against Belmont Abbey. The regular season opener will be on Nov. 14 against NC Central. (GoHeels.com)

Thursday Q-and-A with UNC athletics director Bubba Cunningham

Bubba Cunningham: "After the press conference, we had an open forum with faculty, staff and students. We also had a meeting with head coaches. We had a meeting with student-athletes. We had a meeting with staff. We've tried to be as available as possible for people to ask questions and try to understand what the implications are for the institution and for them personally." (Fayetteville Observer)

Carolina Rundown: October 24

After the win over Georgia Tech, practice has been a little more spirited this week. Marquise Williams felt like last year's Virginia game was the start of his Tar Heel career, and now he has another important matchup against the Cavs. Don't forget the exhibition basketball game tonight at the Smith Center (GoHeels.com)

Marquise Williams knows U.Va. is once again a 'big' game

When Marquise Williams took over for injured Bryn Renner in 2013, the Tar Heels were 3-5 and 2-3. They ended with seven wins, including a Belk Bowl victory over Cincinnati. They’ve returned to a familiar position — and they’re facing a familiar foe. “As my first game, I felt like Virginia was the biggest game for me,” Williams said. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Everett Withers Responds To UNC Academic Fraud Report

James Madison football head coach Everett Withers responded to a University of North Carolina report regarding the school's academic fraud on Thursday night. "In a report issued yesterday by UNC's outside counsel, it was stated that I was unwilling to participate in their investigation. This is simply not true," Withers wrote. (WHSV.com)
