Catching up with Caleb Pressley

Anybody who knows Caleb Pressley is not surprised by his latest gig. The former Reynolds High quarterback who led the Rockets to a state 4-A title in 2009 is the “supervisor of morale” for the UNC football team, a self-appointed title he is having a lot of fun with. His real job is to signal in plays from the Tar Heels’ coaches to the quarterback, but Pressley finds his work much more important. (Asheville Citizen-Times)

Clippers forward Reggie Bullock prepared for bigger role

With Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers still mulling over who will get the majority of the minutes at the starting small forward spot, there’s more than a glimmer of hope for second-year forward Reggie Bullock to get significant minutes on the title-contending roster. “Some of the main things I’ve been working on is just strength, getting my knee back healthy,” Bullock said. (Sports Out West)

UNC Women's Soccer Remains Unbeaten In ACC With 3-0 Win Over Duke

For the second straight game sophomore forward Emily Bruder scored two goals while freshman forward Alex Kimball notched her first career tally as #6 North Carolina defeated Duke 3-0 in women's soccer Sunday afternoon. The win was UNC's ninth in a row as the Tar Heels improved to 10-2-1 and remained unbeaten in the ACC with a 7-0-0 mark. (GoHeels.com)

Video: Georgia Tech-North Carolina Wrap-Up

ESPN analysts Kelly Stouffer and Anish Shroff discuss Tar Heels QB Marquise Williams' impact performance that led to a 48-43 victory over the Yellow Jackets. (ESPN.com)

The Good, Bad, & Ugly Report: Georgia Tech

Despite defensive struggles, Carolina won the game. In some ways I am willing to give the Tar Heels a pass given how enigmatic Georgia Tech has been for them in the post-Mack Brown era, but relying on outscoring an opponent is a dangerous way to live. Still it worked on Saturday and stopped the bleeding of the four-game losing streak. (Tar Heel Blog)

Extra Points: A Hard Line

The pretty boys with their single and low-digit jersey numbers, modeling contracts, and press clippings were shucking and jiving in the middle of the Tar Heel bench area early in the fourth quarter Saturday, the celebration raging after Mack Hollins had just made a Cirque du Soleil catch for a touchdown. A contrasting scene was noticeable and significant amidst the offensive linemen. (GoHeels.com)

UNC's Offensive Line Delivers

North Carolina’s offensive line performance had limited Seth Littrell's play calling throughout the first six games of the season. That wasn’t the case on Saturday, however, as the line kept Marquise Williams’ jersey clean and opened holes for the Tar Heel running backs. Saturday marked the second game this season that UNC’s preseason starting five actually started together. (Inside Carolina)

Matt Harvey visits UNC, eases into post-injury training

Injured Mets ace and ladies man Matt Harvey is easing back into training while attending a pal’s wedding this weekend. We hear Harvey’s visiting his alma mater, the University of North Carolina, while in the Chapel Hill area for the nuptials and will do mild workouts with his former college coaches. (New York Post)

Comedian Lewis Black still making 'em laugh

Lewis Black can't help but look back and laugh. While discussing Robin Williams' tragic demise and the state of America, the charmingly cranky comic may have hit it right on the head when trying to define that most elusive of states, happiness. (The Courier-Post)

Ryan Switzer shows out in UNC win over Georgia Tech

Saturday night during UNC's 48-43 victory over Georgia Tech, Ryan Switzer proved why so many people bought into the noise surrounding his play before the season began. Switzer had a career-high nine receptions for a career-high 136 yards and two touchdowns. It was only the second time in his career that he surpassed 100 yards receiving or caught two touchdowns in one game. (Carolina Blue)

North Carolina edges Georgia Tech, 48-43

North Carolina still hasn’t figured out how to stop Georgia Tech’s triple-option. Instead, the Tar Heels just outscored it. The Tar Heels scored touchdowns on seven of their final nine possessions, including a 2-yard run by T.J. Logan with 11 seconds left, in a 48-43 win Saturday that broke a four-game losing streak overall and a five-game losing streak to Georgia Tech. (Durham Herald-Sun)

ACC helmet stickers: Week 8

UNC QB Marquise Williams. For the second straight week, Williams was phenomenal -- but this time, the Tar Heels picked up a 48-43 come-from-behind win over Georgia Tech. Williams threw for 390 yards, ran for 73 more, completed a school-record 38 passes and had five total touchdowns. In the past two games, Williams has 696 yards passing, 205 yards rushing and nine touchdowns. (ESPN.com)

UNC offense comes together for complete game

A week ago, Marquise Williams put on a show in South Bend. Saturday night, with 3 minutes and 7 seconds remaining in the 48-43 win against Georgia Tech, Williams stepped up for his final act in part two of the Williams spectacular. It was just the kind of situation Williams relishes — down one point in front of a home crowd with what felt like an entire season riding on the game. (Carolina Blue)

Larry Fedora UNC-Georgia Tech Postgame Quotes

Larry Fedora "It was a heck of a game, and a much different locker room than it has been the last few weeks. I’m proud of our guys. We knew it was going to be a 60-minute game. Didn’t know all the things that were going to happen. But I can tell you when adversity hit throughout the game, nobody really flinched." (Inside Carolina)

What we learned in the ACC: Week 8

Marquise Williams is UNC's QB: Williams has been unstoppable in his last two games -- which, coincidentally, were the first two games where Mitch Trubisky wasn't given regular playing time. Williams set a North Carolina record with 38 completions, throwing for four TDs and rushing for one more while leading a dramatic 48-43 come-from-behind win over Georgia Tech. (ESPN.com)
