Chancellor Folt Announces Live Wainstein Webcast

Dear Carolina Community, I want to be the first to let you know that this Wednesday at 1 p.m., Kenneth Wainstein, a former federal prosecutor who we retained to investigate past academic irregularities at Carolina, will publicly release his report. At that event, UNC President Tom Ross and I will share our reactions to the report, our plans for responding, and also answer questions from the media. There will be a live webcast of Mr. Wainstein’s presentation on Wednesday. (UNC.edu)

Wainstein Report Set to be Released

UNC will release the findings of Kenneth Wainstein's investigation this week, according to sources. University administrators are planning to host a press conference on Wednesday in conjunction with the release of the report, sources confirmed. UNC retained the services of Wainstein, a former federal prosecutor, to conduct an investigation into academic irregularities and any possible connection to the athletics department.

Chase Rice gains momentum with "Ready Set Roll"

Chase Rice rolled into hit-maker status right out of the gate. His rookie album Ignite the Night took the No. 1 spot on Billboard's country albums chart in its first week, while lead single "Ready Set Roll" earned a gold certification for over 500,000 sales before it even entered country radio's Top 20. (CMT)

Heroic Williams deflects credit for UNC's comeback win

In the past two weeks, Marquise Williams has indeed been "balling out." Against two teams that had a combined one loss entering their respective games against the Tar Heels, Williams has completed 62 of 88 passes for 693 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions, adding 34 rushing attempts for 205 yards and two touchdowns. (FOX Sports)

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)
