Smith Center renovations postponed

After months of discussions surrounding renovations to the Smith Center, UNC fans’ dream for a new-or-improved arena have been put on hold. “Just with the ongoing (NCAA) issues...there’s just a lot of flux right now,” said Steve Kirschner, a spokesman for the athletic department. “We just thought it best to kind of pull back and let some of those things sift and sort out before we do anything major.” (Daily Tar Heel)

Family of hospitalized UNC senior turns to community for help

A University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill senior has been hospitalized for almost three weeks for treatment of severe head injuries after a car accident in Durham.

Colin Moran excelling since joining Astros' system

Colin Moran has performed well since joining Double-A Corpus Christi. Through 22 games, Moran was hitting .307 with a .357 on-base percentage, two homers and 18 RBIs. He entered Wednesday on a six-game hitting streak, during which he was 9-for-27. The 6-foot-4 Moran was taken with the sixth overall pick out of North Carolina by the Marlins in 2013. (MLB.com)

For Liberty QB coach Joe Dailey, opener at UNC is a homecoming

Joe Dailey admits to still following North Carolina from afar. It’s his alma mater, after all. It’s where he earned his bachelor’s degree in 2007. It’s where he started seven games at quarterback in 2006 and finished his career a year later as a starting wide receiver. The Liberty quarterbacks coach will hide the Carolina blue for a day, though, come Saturday. (Lynchburg News & Advance)

Larry Fedora Radio Show Quotes

You’ve spent the last several weeks with your team. Are you excited to get the season underway? Larry Fedora: “I am, and I think they’re more excited than I am. I really do. This is by far the best camp we’ve had since we’ve been here. Lou [Hernandez] had done a tremendous job with our guys over the summer. They were so well prepared; they were in such great shape.” (Inside Carolina)

Excitement in UNC backfield

The first depth chart of the season points to either sophomore T.J. Logan or redshirt junior Romar Morris getting the start at tailback when UNC takes the field against Liberty Saturday. Larry Fedora and his staff feel confident enough in two other running backs: sophomore Khris Francis and true freshman Elijah Hood. Both were on the depth chart as backup running back options. (Carolina Blue)

Will Dancy Starting at Left Guard

Left guard Will Dancy will notch his first career start in UNC’s season opener against Liberty on Saturday night. The junior transfer from Eastern Arizona College signed with UNC in May 2013. He appeared in 10 games last season, primarily backing up Caleb Peterson at left guard. “Right now, Will Dancy will start the game,” UNC offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic said following Tuesday’s practice. (Inside Carolina)

No. 23 Tar Heels want to live up to preseason hype

Quarterback drama aside, the Tar Heels are starting out the season ranked (No. 23 in both polls) for the first time since 2010. This year's team isn't as talented as that one was, and in spite of its top-25 ranking, it has plenty of issues, particularly along the offensive and defensive lines. But the voters clearly liked the way UNC finished last season and the players that it brings back at the skill positions. (FOX Sports)

UNC’s Switzer, Schoettmer Brimming with Confidence

The No. 23 North Carolina Tar Heels are embracing their status as a member of the preseason Top 25, but sophomore sensation Ryan Switzer and junior linebacker Jeff Schoettmer believe they have the tools to climb the rankings even further as the football season gets underway Saturday in Kenan Stadium. (Chapelboro.com)

Kevin Reddick waived by New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints waived cornerback Rod Sweeting and linebacker Kevin Reddick, while confirming the release of veteran linebacker Victor Butler, coach Sean Payton said on Tuesday. In 2013, Sweeting and Reddick were mostly core special teams players. Reddick played in every game in 2013, but only saw snaps on defense in three of them. (New Orleans Times-Picayune)

North Carolina investigating alleged hazing incident with football team

UNC confirmed Tuesday that it is investigating a training camp hazing incident between football players that escalated into what multiple sources described as an alleged group assault of a teammate. "We are aware of an incident involving members of the UNC football team that took place earlier this month. We take this allegation seriously and the University is conducting a thorough review," Kevin Best, UNC's assistant athletic director for communications, said in a statement. (Yahoo! Sports)

Hendersonville High’s Eric Gash wears a lot of hats

Eric Gash made his debut as Hendersonville High’s football coach Friday. It was a night to forget, with the Bearcats on the wrong end of a 49-14 rout against Asheville High. And of the more than 30 high school football coaches in Western NC, Gash is probably the first in history to prep for his new job by spending 14 years in the Caribbean and starting a ministry before returning to the football field. (Asheville Citizen-Times)

North Carolina-Liberty Preview

North Carolina has optimism from a strong finish and motivation from watching a rival's surprise trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. And that has the 23rd-ranked Tar Heels talking about making their own run in the wide-open Coastal Division as they kick off their season Saturday against FCS opponent Liberty. (Yahoo! Sports)

Comprehending Brandan Wright’s statistical compendium

Just how efficient is Mavs’ backup center Brandan Wright? After three seasons in Dallas, Wright is the franchise’s all-time leader in four major offensive categories and is second in two more significant areas. Just look at the numbers below. Not only is Wright in first place on these lists. He’s in first by a mile. (Dallas Mavericks)
