Duke football assistant goes on unhinged pregame rampage before UNC game

It should be noted that after Hoover got one guy super excited, another guy unnerved, and killed a chair, that Duke went out and lost 45-20. Maybe next time they should just listen to some fun music or do a team cheer or not destroy furniture. (USA Today)

UNC to Learn on the Road

No. 6 North Carolina will play its next four games away from the Dean E. Smith Center, its longest road stretch of the season. A lot more will be known about this Tar Heel squad once it returns from the Bahamas next weekend. After back-to-back seasons with unbalanced roster and varying degrees of turmoil, this UNC lineup seems relatively straightforward. (Inside Carolina)

UNC paid $3.1M for academic fraud probe

UNC paid more than $3.1 million to a Washington, D.C., law firm for its outside investigation of academic fraud at the school, according to an invoice.

Extra Points: Color It Chrome

When the Tar Heels went out for opening warm-ups on Thursday night at Wallace Wade Stadium wearing black helmets, the equipment staff pulled out the chrome lids and had them waiting. The players made the switch just before the kickoff and a sublime confluence of energy, focus, resolve, preparation, scheming and a roster of players maturing as the season wore on resulted in that fast start.

The Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: Duke

Wow, who saw that coming? With the win against Duke, UNC regains the Victory Bell but more importantly is once again bowl eligible after a 2-4 start and being labeled one of the country's biggest disappointments. Carolina did not disappoint in a featured prime-time game with tons on the line for both teams, however. With that in mind, here is this week's GBU Report: (Tar Heel Blog)

Previewing Davidson

North Carolina and its 2-0 record travel to Charlotte on Saturday to face Davidson, a team that took the Tar Heels to overtime a year ago in Chapel Hill. Tip-off at Time Warner Cable Arena is set for 2 p.m. and the game will be televised locally by TWC Sports. Davidson enters Saturday’s contest with a 2-0 record.

UNC men’s soccer advances in NCAA Tournament behind 5 second-half goals

The No. 16 North Carolina men’s soccer team has trademarked an explosive scoring offense this season. But it added another skill to its repertoire Thursday night on Fetzer Field in the first round of the NCAA tournament against James Madison. Patience. (Daily Tar Heel)

The Turning Point?

This game could serve as a turning point in the Larry Fedora era. It could be that moment where the players truly bought into what the coaching staff had been teaching them. The actual bearing of fruit following weeks of seeing barren branches could give the Tar Heel players the necessary confidence and the program much needed momentum. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC defense spoils Duke’s championship hopes

The UNC defense gave up 511.6 yards per game and 51 total touchdowns, earning it a spot at the bottom of the ACC. In North Carolina’s 45-20 win, UNC’s defense held Duke in check. The Blue Devils managed just 243 total yards of offense through three quarters, and their 20 points are the fewest an opponent has scored against the Tar Heels this season. (Daily Tar Heel)

Marcus Ginyard's Journey to the D-League

Known as a defensive stopper in his time as a Tar Heel, Marcus Ginyard won a National Championship at North Carolina in 2009. Since, basketball has taken him to Germany, Israel, Poland and Ukraine. Now 27, he’s back in the United States, playing just up the road for the Westchester Knicks. This is his story. (SLAM Online)

Know Your Opponent: Davidson

Brian Sullivan is back for Davidson, and Tar Heel fans will remember him. He dropped 33 in the Smith Center a year ago, including seven 3s. Fellow captains and returning standouts Tyler Kalinoski (11.0 points and 5.0 rebounds per game in 2013-14) and Jack Gibbs also return for the Wildcats. Kalinoski was actually Davidson’s most efficient offensive player a season ago. (GoHeels.com)
