Peyton Manning's words boost UNC's Marquise Williams

In the battle for the North Carolina Tar Heels starting quarterback job, Marquise Williams knows he's clearly been pegged as the mobile alternative to Mitch Trubisky's pocket-passing expertise.

Tar Heels Look to Employ More Vertical Passing Attack

Nate Britt's jumper finally all right

Plenty of players adjust their shooting mechanics during the course of their college career, but very few could even consider the option of changing hands.

Larry Fedora Q&A From ACC Kickoff

Larry Fedora: "We don't want to start the season out the way we started out this past season. Unfortunately last year we had to play a lot of young guys, but fortunately for this year all those young guys got a lot of experience. They won't be so wide-eyed looking around figuring out what's going on. They'll know the way they should play." (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC Picked Fourth in ACC Coastal Division

The ACC preseason football poll is out and UNC has been picked to finish fourth in the Coastal Division in what looks like a fair amount of vote splitting.
