Hey UNC Banner-Chasers and Accreditation-Revokers, Sit Down and Shut Up

To the Banner-Chasers and the Accreditation-Revokers, I have a plea from all of us who are concerned about the academic fraud: “Sit down and shut up!” This issue is too important for hyperbole from the sports media, higher education leaders, or holier-than-thou critics. Let’s rationally examine the issues involved, the culture that supported them, and address needed reforms. (Higher Ed Professor)

Ty Lawson answers questions on Reddit's "Ask Me Anything"

Former UNC and current Denver Nugget point guard Ty Lawson joined the web site Reddit on Monday to participate live in the popular "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) question and answer session with the online community. (Reddit.com)

UNC locks in on ACC Coastal crown

Following two straight come-from-behind wins, the Tar Heels will be Coastal champions if they win their final four games, starting Saturday at Miami. “There’s a lot of, ‘We have to get these wins,’” offensive guard Landon Turner said. “Every game from here on out is a championship game for us. For us, there’s no added pressure. It’s going to make it more fun.” (Durham Herald-Sun)

Turner's Take: Monday Musings

There was “plenty to learn from after looking at the film” from Saturday’s win over Virginia, Larry Fedora said at his Monday press conference, but the bottom line was that the Tar Heels found a way to win the football game. It took game-changing plays in all three phases of the game. The fact that Carolina was able to win, however, can pay dividends down the road. (GoHeels.com)

Experience helped prepare Trubisky for game-winning pass

Larry Fedora kept saying that he knew what he was doing when he continued playing two quarterbacks earlier this season. Saturday, the UNC football coach got a chance to tell his detractors “I told you so.” With starting quarterback Marquise Williams forced to the sidelines after losing his helmet, Fedora didn’t hesitate sending backup Mitch Trubisky onto the field for a pivotal fourth quarter play. (Wilmington Star News)

Tar Heels hope improved depth means big things

North Carolina has spent the past two seasons trying to overcome personnel losses that forced coach Roy Williams to keep reshaping the way his team played. The Tar Heels shouldn't have that problem this year, not with replenished perimeter depth that has them equipped for a run at the ACC title. For Marcus Paige, that means a run at the Final Four, too. (Associated Press)

Ex-UNC chancellor Moeser: Wainstein report 'shocking'

The former chancellor at UNC during the academic scandal said Monday he was shocked by what investigator Kenneth Wainstein found. Wainstein delivered his report Wednesday in Chapel Hill, detailing problems that stretched over 19 years. James Moeser was chancellor at Carolina from 2000 through 2008 and said what Wainstein found "was shocking to me." (WNCN)

Larry Fedora Monday Press Conference Quotes

Larry Fedora: “Plenty to learn from after looking at the film in all three phases of the game. We were fortunate to make the plays that we needed to to win the game. Give credit to our kids for continuing to believe in what we’re doing, continuing to believe in each other, and kept fighting hard, and kept playing hard, and finished it up at the end.” (Inside Carolina)

Emmert calls North Carolina report 'troubling'

NCAA President Mark Emmert says the findings of a report into alleged academic fraud at the University of North Carolina are ''deeply troubling'' and ''absolutely disturbing.'' The 20-minute interview with The Associated Press marked the first time he has commented publicly since Kenneth Wainstein's report was released last Wednesday. (Yahoo! Sports)

Karen Shelton has national honors as both a field hockey player, coach

When Karen Shelton accepted the head field hockey coach position at North Carolina in 1981, she was still a player. And not just any player — she was one of the best in the United States. Shelton’s first three years at UNC overlapped with her time spent with the U.S. National Team, which she played on from 1977 to 1984. (Daily Tar Heel)

Believing Enough to Make Plays

Virginia appeared on its way to building a two-possession lead midway through the fourth quarter when defensive tackle Nazair Jones hauled in his first lifetime interception. Backup quarterback Mitch Trubisky threw his first game-winning touchdown three minutes later, and UNC kept the Virginia offense off the field for the remainder of the game with a gutsy onside kick to preserve the 28-27 victory. (Inside Carolina)

Video: UNC Football Weekly Press Conference Recap - Miami

Larry Fedora and Landon Turner discuss the Tar Heels' win over Virginia last weekend, Mack Hollins' progression on the field and the team coming together as a whole. View Video...

Mack Hollins Named ACC Receiver of the Week

Mack Hollins did a bit of everything in UNC’s 28-27 win over Virginia. He had a 57-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter and a 63-yard scoring catch in the second quarter to finish with a career-high 120 yards receiving. Hollins also recovered an onside kick with just over four minutes to play. In addition, Hollins twice downed UNC punts inside the Virginia 2-yard line. (The ACC)

North Carolina makes its Coastal move

It was convenient for us all to write off North Carolina after another embarrassing start to its season, but one thing is becoming quite apparent about these Tar Heels under Larry Fedora. They rise only after they have fallen hard, refusing to give in to the gut punches and the critics. Are they making things difficult on purpose? Because they seem to thrive on the rush that comes when they have been dismissed. (ESPN.com)
