UNC's Ryan Switzer against idea of abolishing kickoffs from college game

UNC reinforcing their confidence in Trubisky

After the ACC Network announcement hoopla at ACC Kickoff died down Thursday, the North Carolina contingent spent their time assuring the media of their confidence at the quarterback position.

Harrison Barnes ready to move on

Harrison Barnes, in a way, has been virtually erased from the Warriors. There is no shortage of people who are happy to see Barnes gone. Not just because his departure opened the door for Kevin Durant's arrival -- and the Warriors' absolutely made the right choice -- but also because Barnes' four years with the Warriors showed flashes of greatness that were never sustained. (San Jose Mercury News)

More Records in Sight for UNC WR/PR Ryan Switzer

Ryan Switzer has grown accustomed to being peppered with questions about his return game exploits, and for good reason. The UNC senior tied the NCAA record with five punt returns for touchdown in his freshman season, added two more last season and is one electrifying punt return score away from tying the NCAA career mark.

Highlighting the 2016 UNC wide receivers

This year's North Carolina offense is looking to stay on pace with the 2015 squad. Since starting quarterback, Mitch Trubisky, and starting running back, Elijah Hood, will garner most of the attention, we decided to shift the focus to the receiving corps for the Tar Heels. It seems as though this group of guys don’t get the love and attention they deserve. (Tar Heel Blog)

NBA, Michael Jordan join talks over gender bathroom bill

It's no secret that business leaders, entertainers and heads of major corporations think North Carolina's gender bathroom bill is not just discriminatory, but bad for the state's economy.

ACC to add two more basketball games starting in 2019-20

The new ACC Network will have more television "inventory" when the league moves from 18 conference games to 20 beginning in 2019-20. The current setup of the league schedule means that not everyone plays twice, and while that would still be true even after adding two more games, the league would come closer to a home-and-away format.
