As Part of Bowl Experience, Tar Heels Spend Morning at Give Kids The World Village

Russell Athletic Bowl Saturday Notebook

UNC's second full day in central Florida was a busy one, as the Tar Heels participated in a trip to Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort that houses sick children and their families for a week of fun in a stress-free environment.

No. 18 Baylor Takes On No. 10 UNC in Orlando

A unique, up-tempo spread attack with origins in Bill Yeoman's `Houston Veer' (perhaps most identifiable by wide splits of receivers and a power running game), Art Briles has honed his offensive system over the past four decades as a high school and collegiate coach; it's a balanced offense, not to be confused with more common pass-heavy spread attacks.

Marquise Williams: Overcome

Marquise Williams is overcome. He examines a picture of himself on Senior Day. In it, he stands with his mother, holding a framed jersey minutes before kickoff against Miami. It's hard to describe the look on his face –not smiling, not frowning, but a bit bleary-eyed. Overcome. “Just finished crying,” he says. “Like, 'Wow, I did it,' and this would be my last time playing at Kenan Stadium.” (GoHeels.com)

Why The Bowl Game Versus Baylor Matters

Bowl games carry different meanings for different teams, often depending on the season they've had, the location of the game, the name value of their opponent, and sometimes there's just no rhyme or reason a team either pulls a no-show or tears out of the tunnel ready to rip off opposing heads. In North Carolina's case versus Baylor, it's conceivable nobody really knows what we will see from the Tar Heels. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Tar Heels hunting history, not just Bears, at Russell Athletic Bowl

Most college football bowls, with the exception of the two that serve as national playoff semifinals, are little more than exhibition games designed to reward players for a season of hard work, soak some money out of their school’s boosters and provide holiday programming for a certain 24-hour cable sports network. But that won’t be the case for UNC at the Russell Athletic Bowl. (Wilmington Star News)

Where would Houston Texans be without T.J. Yates?

"Where would we be without T.J. Yates?" It’s a question that Texans coach Bill O’Brien asked aloud on his Monday radio show.

From a 2-5 record to within reach of the playoffs, the 2015 has been unpredictable, tumultuous, and yet exhilarating. (Houston Texans)
