ICTV: UNC WR Bug Howard On Attendance Tweet

Bug Howard didn't expect this kind of reaction. After observing Saturday's low fan turnout at Kenan Stadium, UNC's junior wide receiver decided to act. While hanging out with members of the UNC basketball team on Tuesday, he made a post on Twitter. It was both criticism and a joke, but was intended as a rallying cry. And it resonated.

Tar Heels In The NFL - Week Two

As a third-round pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, Kareem Martin finished his rookie season with eight combined tackles and one forced fumble on the year. Currently, he is still adjusting from his offseason positional-shift from defensive end to outside linebacker in an attempt to utilize his athleticism for both rushing the quarterback and dropping back in coverage.

Bug Talks Tweet

UNC junior wide receiver Bug Howard created quite a stir Tuesday morning when he tweeted something that took on a life of its own and was rather embarrassing for the Tar Heels' football program. Howard's Tweet: "Maybe if we did a Men's basketball pick up game at halftime of our games maybe people will show up? Will you?" (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Quinshad Davis' career with Tar Heels nothing to sleep on

It’s not that Quinshad Davis was avoiding UNC football coach Larry Fedora during the recruiting process. It’s that he didn’t want to talk to Fedora when the coach would call. “My mom would pick up the phone and say, ‘Q, Coach is on the phone,’” Davis said. His response: “Coach I’m asleep right now, I’ll call you back. All the time. I did that to every coach who called me.” (Burlington Times News)

Elijah Hood, An Eagle Scout?

Yes the powerhouse running back was an Eagle Scout. When the 220 pound football player was not running through players on the gridiron, he was harnessing his outdoor skills and helping out in the community. "I started way back in Pre-K when I was a Cub Scout," said Hood. (Carolina Blue)

Giovani Bernard's big game gives Bengals something to consider at RB

Few teams have the option of benching a 100-yard rusher and feeling good that his backup can hit triple figures, too. Hill didn't play after his second fumble during a 24-19 win over San Diego on Sunday. Giovani Bernard — who lost the starting job to Hill last season — got the bulk of the plays in the second half and ran for 123 yards overall. "When the opportunity arises, that's the biggest thing for anybody," Bernard said. (Associated Press)

T.J. Logan awaits his big game

T.J. Logan came to North Carolina with a lot of hype. And now, he’s just waiting — mostly patiently — for his next big game. “Oh, yeah. Most definitely. Most definitely,” said freshman tailback Ty’Son Williams when asked if Logan’s big game is on the horizon. “I mean, he’s gonna stay steady, and it’s gonna come soon.” (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC OG Landon Turner 'Dominating' Interior

North Carolina right guard Landon Turner entered the 2015 football season with high expectations. Through three games, he is living up to the hype. Turner was named ACC Lineman of the Week for the second time this season after a strong performance against Illinois. “I’m honored by it, for sure,” Turner said after practice on Tuesday. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Live: M.J. Stewart's Play Earning Praise

M.J. Stewart stood out among his fellow defensive backs in Saturday’s win over Illinois, earning defensive player of the game honors from the coaching staff. “When we go in and talk on Sunday about who were the guys that really well played in the game, this is three weeks in a row now for M.J.,” UNC head coach Larry Fedora said during his live radio show on Tuesday night. (Inside Carolina)

UNC players notice empty seats

Tar Heel junior wide receiver Bug Howard sent a tweet out on Tuesday morning that spread like wildfire through social media. As of 2:58 PM on Tuesday the tweet had 324 retweets. The tweet is in reference to the low UNC fan turnout during Saturday's 48-14 clobbering of Illinois. There were also plenty of empty seats f (Carolina Blue)

Video: Switzer's "Dead Fish" TD celebration

Following his second half punt return touchdown on Saturday against Illinois, Ryan Switzer did an interesting celebration. He jumped in the air, moved his body horizontally, and fell to the ground untouched. "I call it the dead fish," Switzer said after the 48-14 win. "I tried to jump and have people catch me and no one caught me so I probably won't be doing that again." (Carolina Blue)

Elijah Hood: "You could drive a truck through that hole"

Elijah Hood came into the season as UNC's starting running back. It's clear the the 6-foot-0, 220-pound Charlotte native is "the guy" for UNC this season. On Saturday he rushed 16 times for 130 yards, an 8.1 yards per carry average, and one touchdown. In three games, Hood has 45 carries for 323 yards. That is 7.2 yards per carry and a 107.7 per game average. (Carolina Blue)

My Carolina Experience: E.J. Wilson

Every tale of triumph features a protagonist that has to use their strengths to overcome their obstacles; E.J. Wilson’s is one of those. Hailing from the small town of Emporia, Va., the eventual NFL defensive end went to a high school that wasn’t very good at football. They were, however, great at basketball and as such the two-sport athlete used that to his advantage. (GoHeels.com)

Video: Ryan Switzer's Top 3 Plays vs. Illinois

North Carolina WR Ryan Switzer was once again dynamite in all facets of the game for the Tar Heels in their win over Illinois. Switzer's sticky hands and sweet feet got him to the end zone twice with a 34-yard touchdown catch and a phenomenal 85-yard punt return: View Video...

No Looking Ahead For Fedora, Tar Heels

The Georgia Tech game is more than a week away, and the Tar Heels have an opponent to deal with in between. But with Delaware an FCS member and not expected to challenge the Tar Heels this Saturday at Kenan Stadium, human nature suggests there might be a temptation for the coaching staff to insert some Georgia Tech prep into this week's work to get a jump-start on readying to take on the unique Yellow Jackets.
