UNC's QB Competition Starting Over

North Carolina signed a pair of quarterbacks – three-star pro-style QB Cade Fortin and four-star dual threat QB Jace Ruder - in the early signing period on Wednesday. Those freshmen will join Chazz Surratt and Nathan Elliott in battling for the starting position this spring and into the fall, although the returners have a head start in terms of experience and schematic familiarity.

A Christmas wish list for UNC athletics

It’s been a great year for UNC athletics.

Chansky’s Notebook: Reloading? Hope So

The Tar Heels inked 14 players to letters of intent Wednesday, and reading Lee Pace’s account of these kids gets me excited that 3-9 seasons are potentially a thing of the past. No one covers Carolina sports in more detail or as colorfully as Pace, who has been a loyal football maven for years. Pace is subjectively objective. He tells it like it is with a Carolina slant.

Extra Points: First Course

The Tar Heel coaching staff hopes they have 14 special players to mark the nucleus of the 2018 signing class, though Larry Fedora stresses there are more players to sign and more work to do. "So far we've done a nice job addressing our needs," Fedora said. The essence of this class could be found on the field in Kenan Stadium one Saturday night in June. (GoHeels.com)

Texans QB T.J. Yates to start against Steelers

For Texans quarterback T.J. Yates, the starting job that eluded him for years is firmly within his grasp. Yates will start his second consecutive game Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Texans coach Bill O’Brien affirmed that Yates will remain the starter. He didn’t rule out quarterback Tom Savage for the remainder of the season, but he’s a “ways off” in terms of being cleared.

UNC Football Adjusting to Early Signing Period

UNC’s initial early signing period went according to plan on Wednesday as 14 recruits delivered their National Letters of Intent before most people left for work. The 65-hour signing period, which has prompted debate since the NCAA Division I Council approved the measure in May, uprooted the standard recruiting cycle that culminated with National Signing Day in February.
