Hype for Hood

Elijah Hood arrived at North Carolina in January with a five-star recruit ranking and lofty expectations in tow. UNC head coach Larry Fedora didn’t shy away from adding to the hype surrounding his rookie running back at the ACC Kickoff media event on Monday. “He’s special,” Fedora told reporters at Grandover Resort. “You don’t have a lot of kids like that in any program I’ve been in.” (Inside Carolina)

We’re excited to add a player of Marvin’s caliber to our team,” Cho said. “He will be a key piece of our frontcourt rotation.” The 6-9 Williams was the second overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft after one season at the University of North Carolina.

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. UNC received 27 first place votes, one of six teams to get a nod for the top of the division. The Tar Heels finished one point behind third place Virginia Tech. Miami was the choice to win the division followed by Duke. (Tar Heel Blog)

Opponents View: Fedora's Spread

Larry Fedora’s up-tempo spread offense has broken 55 offensive records during its first two seasons at North Carolina. Opposing defensive players at the 2014 ACC Kickoff media event on Sunday discussed the challenges of facing UNC’s offensive scheme. This is an offense that wants to run as many plays as possible, but there is a certain method to the madness. (Inside Carolina)

Ryan Switzer Ready to Score

If there was one thing the shifty wide receiver proved his freshman season, it was that if you put the ball in his hands something good was going to happen. Getting ready for his sophomore season, Ryan Switzer does not plan on that changing anytime soon. ”Anytime you can get in the end zone as many times as I did, your confidence is going to skyrocket,” said Switzer. (Carolina Blue)

Kendall Marshall thanks Chipotle for his time with the Lakers

Marquise Williams confident, ready to get throwing

Known more as a dual-threat quarterback than a pure thrower, North Carolina junior Marquise Williams gained two high-profile admirers earlier this month at the Manning Passing Academy — Peyton and Eli. “They told me a lot of guys said you weren’t a good thrower, but Peyton took me to the side and said ‘You’re a heck of a thrower,’” Williams said Sunday at the ACC Football Kickoff. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Video: Marquise Williams, Norkeithus Otis at ACC Kickoff

Marquise Williams and Norkeithus Otis spoke at ACC Media Day about what the Tar Heels need to do to take the next step in achieving success on the gridiron this upcoming season. View Video...

Isaiah Hicks an under-the-radar sophomore to watch

These 12 sophomores should make big improvements from their freshmen seasons. Isaiah Hicks, forward, North Carolina: Hicks appeared in every game as freshman for the Tar Heels, but mainly played out of position at small forward. This season should see him return to power forward where he should establish himself as the Heels' top frontcourt reserve. (ESPN.com)

UNC's Norkeithus Otis expects an improved defense

North Carolina turned a corner after losing a close game to Miami last season and won six of its last seven games. The defense gave up an average of 19.1 points in those seven games, an improvement on its 30.7 average over its first six games. That’s a major reason Norkeithus Otis expects the Tar Heels defense won’t need half of the season to unite this fall. (Greensboro News & Record)
