ACC full of quarterbacks to chase

Three of the ACC’s leading ground gainers in 2014 were quarterbacks. Tyler Murphy of Boston College and Justin Thomas of Georgia Tech both topped 1000 yards. UNC’s Marquise Williams piled up 788 yards, leading his team in rushing by a wide margin. But we’re just getting started. Syracuse has Terrell Hunt, who has rushed for 792 yards in his career.

Q&A with Larry Fedora, Part II

What are you telling recruits about the NCAA and why are you so confident in what you’re telling them? Larry Fedora: "You know I’m a very positive person. There’s plenty of people out there that are going to look at the negative side of everything that we do. I’m pretty positive that it’s turning to turn out good for us. One, because I believe we do things the right way. I think that plays a role in it, I really do." (Inside Carolina)

Chase Rice to headline own tour this fall

Chase Rice has been learning lessons in entertaining crowds while on Kenny Chesney‘s The Big Revival tour this summer, and after taking notes for over 40 shows, it’s time to put that knowledge to the test by embarking on his own tour this fall. “When I was playing football in college, I learned the most about my peers, and competitors, by studying their moves,” shares the North Carolina native.

UNC Football: Time For An Upgrade To Facilities?

The way Larry Fedora sees things, it's all about keeping up with the Joneses. That's the way things are in college football these days. UNC's head football coach acknowledged earlier this week at the annual ACC Kickoff that his program has several needs, and each requires considerable cash investments. But they are needs nonetheless, and it starts with an indoor football practice facility. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Jim Martin Claims He Misspoke on UNC Scandal

Former North Carolina Governor Jim Martin now says he misspoke about the UNC scandal when he told trustees: “This was not an athletic scandal. It was an academic scandal, which is worse; but an isolated one.” These revelations were put forward in a new book slated for an October release that was previewed by the News & Observer of Raleigh.

UNC Sports Year in Review: No. 7-8

UNC’s most significant win during the arduous football season was against against Duke on a Thursday night at Wallace Wade Stadium. UNC showed up and dominated Duke in every facet of the game. The Tar Heels built a 38-7 lead by the mid-third quarter of a game that was televised by ESPN and was supposed to be Duke’s next step into national relevance. (Carolina Blue)

Chizik Emphasizes Simplicity Over Scheme

While North Carolina’s schematic change from a 4-2-5 to a 4-3 has been the offseason talking point, the teaching method employed and the fundamentals involved will have a more significant impact on the 2015 Tar Heel defense. Gene Chizik has focused on fundamentals and limiting the complexity of his new scheme. (Inside Carolina)

Quinton Coples among Jets players with something to prove

Quinton Coples is at a crossroads in his Jets career. He’s a starter, but the Jets have alternatives at OLB/DE, so new coach Todd Bowles won’t have to play Coples all that much if he doesn’t want to. Coples has never quite put it all together but said recently that he thinks he’ll be rushing the quarterback more this year. That’s good for him because that’s what he does best. (New York Daily News)

Report: Jets work out former Bengals WR Greg Little

The Jets already made major upgrades to their receiving corps this offseason by trading for veteran Pro Bowler Brandon Marshall and drafting Ohio State's Devin Smith in the second round. They might not be done tweaking that position group just yet. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets worked out former Bengals and Browns receiver Greg Little on Monday. (247 Sports)

UNC QB Marquise Williams, WR Quinshad Davis cleared for fall practices

UNC’s dual-threat quarterback has been cleared to go for fall practices. UNC head coach Larry Fedora confirmed quarterback Marquise Williams and wide receiver Quinshad Davis have each been cleared by medical staff to participate in fall camp. That gives the Tar Heels two key players on the offense that is expected by some to have a strong season in the ACC Coastal Division. (NBC Sports)

National title in reach for North Carolina basketball

In one corner of the ACC, Roy Williams has his top four scorers returning and talented group of sophomores ready to take a big step forward. Just 11 miles down the road, in Cameron Indoor Stadium, Mike Krzyzewski just sent his top four scorers to the NBA. The Tobacco Road rivals each have distinctly different makeups heading into the 2015-16 season. (CBS Sports)

How heavy a favorite is North Carolina basketball?

How heavy an ACC favorite is North Carolina? Pretty heavy. The Tar Heels return nine of their top ten players from last year's team that won 26 games and lost to Wisconsin in the Sweet 16 giving Roy Williams the same type of returning nucleus he had in both 2005 and 2009 when he led his alma mater to national titles. The biggest thing that North Carolina needs to improve this season? Closing out games. (CBS Sports)

Film Room: J.K. Britt

To prepare for the start of the 2015 season, Inside Carolina's staff convened to review and discuss spring film. In this segment, beat writer Greg Barnes and Xs and Os analyst Jason Staples discuss freshman safety J.K. Britt, who quickly surged up the depth chart. (Inside Carolina)

Q&A with Larry Fedora, Part I

Larry Fedora: "As we brought this 2015 team back at the beginning of this year, the first thing we did was talk about the issues we felt like we had as a team. Every single guy on the team got to say what they thought the issues were, and then we addressed every one of those issues. We owned them and then we got rid of them, and said ‘Alright it’s time to move forward so let’s learn from them.’" (Inside Carolina)

Ravens reserve quarterback Bryn Renner has dealt with injuries, adversity in his career

Bryn Renner is reflective, doesn't complain about the bumpy road his career took and is thoroughly enjoying his experience so far with the Ravens. "I'm so happy to be here, and it's going great so far.. Everything I've been through made me stronger and better. It hasn't always been smooth or easy, but I wouldn't trade what's happened for anything. This is a great time in my life to be here." (Baltimore Sun)

UNC Sports Year in Review: No. 9-10

10. UNC Zaps Georgia Tech: UNC’s most impressive win of the 2014 football season was also its most thrilling. The Tar Heels battled Georgia Tech neck-and-neck for the duration of the mid-October contest.

Long snapper Greg Warren is a rarity on the team being a part of that rich tradition for over a decade. Warren is in his 11th camp with the team this year.
