Video: UNC Football All-Access vs. Georgia Tech

Go in the UNC locker room before and after the Tar Heels' big Coastal division win at home against Georgia Tech. View Video...

Defensive Progress Required

The Coastal race is playing out as many pundits projected during the offseason. That is, a modern day version of the Wild West. All seven teams have at least one win and at least one loss with the majority of ACC games yet to be played. UNC (3-4, 1-2 ACC) is in contention but no longer in control of its destiny. Defense will likely determine if either of those dynamics change in the coming weeks. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Monday Press Conference Quotes

Larry Fedora: “Finishing up last week’s game, we were able to go back, there were a lot of things that we were able to pull from this game that will hopefully pay off for us in the future as we continue to grow in all three phases. We still have a lot of work to do in all three phases and we understand that, but I do believe we are showing some improvement.” (Inside Carolina)

Marquise Williams still strives for more

For the second consecutive week, UNC quarterback Marquise Williams was named the ACC offensive back of the week. The junior is playing his best football of the season, and both he and coach Larry Fedora have a pretty simple explanation for it — rhythm. "I really think it's more, he's gotten into a good rhythm and he's gotten comfortable," Fedora said. (Carolina Blue)

Marquise Williams coming up big, has UNC's offense rolling

Marquise Williams suddenly has UNC's quarterback job to himself. And the Tar Heels' offense is rolling. After spending the first month rotating with backup Mitch Trubisky, Williams has led UNC from start-to-finish in the past two games. With Williams putting up big numbers, the Tar Heels are consistently finishing drives in the end zone to build momentum heading into Saturday's trip to Virginia. (Associated Press)

Ryan Switzer's Emergence at Wide Receiver

Sophomore wide receiver Ryan Switzer had a career night on Saturday as his big plays helped spark the North Carolina offense in its 48-43 win over Georgia Tech. Larry Fedora knew coming into last weekend that his offense was going to need to a healthy dose of explosive plays in order to keep pace with a Georgia Tech offense averaging over 33 points per game. (Inside Carolina)

Postgame Chalkboard from UNC-Georgia Tech

A few weeks ago, I wrote that quarterback play and offensive line play were holding the North Carolina offense back. No longer. The last two weeks, those two units have probably been the team’s best, as the Tar Heels have scored 43 and 48 points in consecutive weeks. The improvement at the quarterback position has been most notable. (Inside Carolina)

Williams, Switzer receive weekly ACC awards

North Carolina junior quarterback Marquise Williams received the nod as the ACC Offensive Back of the Week for the second week in a row following his performance in UNC’s high-scoring win over Georgia Tech. Tar Heel sophomore wideout Ryan Switzer, who teamed up with Williams for a pair of touchdown passes, was named the ACC Receiver of the Week. (The ACC)

Marquise Williams, Tar Heels Cool Under Pressure

When faced with a deficit and little time remaining on the clock, the UNC offense came up big Saturday night, snapping a five-game losing streak to Georgia Tech. UNC signal caller Marquise Williams’ poise under pressure was paramount. UNC head coach Larry Fedora says the team works through the two-minute drill every week. It showed against the Yellow Jackets.

Video: Larry Fedora's Passionate Postgame Locker Room Speech

After North Carolina beat Georgia Tech 48-43, Tar Heels head coach Larry Fedora gives a passionate postgame speech to his team as they celebrate the victory. View Video...

Art’s Angle: Unlikely Scenario Lives!

Fight and good fortune got the Tar Heels off the schneid in the ACC and, amazingly, leaves them a chance of still advancing to the conference championship game in Charlotte. Coming off four straight losses and relinquishing 70, 50, 34 and 50 points, the team still had enough gumption to get through what looked like another blown fourth quarter against Georgia Tech Saturday night.

Chancellor Folt Announces Live Wainstein Webcast

Dear Carolina Community, I want to be the first to let you know that this Wednesday at 1 p.m., Kenneth Wainstein, a former federal prosecutor who we retained to investigate past academic irregularities at Carolina, will publicly release his report. At that event, UNC President Tom Ross and I will share our reactions to the report, our plans for responding, and also answer questions from the media. There will be a live webcast of Mr. Wainstein’s presentation on Wednesday. (UNC.edu)

Wainstein Report Set to be Released

UNC will release the findings of Kenneth Wainstein's investigation this week, according to sources. University administrators are planning to host a press conference on Wednesday in conjunction with the release of the report, sources confirmed. UNC retained the services of Wainstein, a former federal prosecutor, to conduct an investigation into academic irregularities and any possible connection to the athletics department. (Inside Carolina)

Chase Rice gains momentum with "Ready Set Roll"

Chase Rice rolled into hit-maker status right out of the gate. His rookie album Ignite the Night took the No. 1 spot on Billboard's country albums chart in its first week, while lead single "Ready Set Roll" earned a gold certification for over 500,000 sales before it even entered country radio's Top 20. (CMT)

Heroic Williams deflects credit for UNC's comeback win

In the past two weeks, Marquise Williams has indeed been "balling out." Against two teams that had a combined one loss entering their respective games against the Tar Heels, Williams has completed 62 of 88 passes for 693 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions, adding 34 rushing attempts for 205 yards and two touchdowns.

"Living in Houston one definitely doesn't see much news related to the Tar Heels. Instead of bouncing around to several sites trying to keep-up with the the Heels, you guys offer "one-stop" service. Thanks for putting together such an informative site. Dook Sux!"
