Athlon's ACC Football 2016 Pre-Season All-Conference Team

The ACC featured four teams – Clemson, Florida State, Louisville and North Carolina – in Athlon's projected top 25 for 2016, and those four teams are home to a good chunk of the league’s talent this fall. The Tigers lead the way with 14 overall selections on Athlon’s 2016 All-ACC team, while North Carolina and Louisville are tied for second with 12. (Athlon Sports)

Extra Points: Freak Out

Someone picked up on the moniker used by the wide receivers position group, “Freaks.” Someone added, “Freak Show.” Someone else added, “Fedora’s Freak Show.” And thus a brand was born. Over the next several months, staff graphic designer Tony Tucker fashioned a “Fedora’s Freak Show” logo around an idea from a 1974 poster for a horror flick called Freakmaker. (GoHeels.com)

UNC opener an ‘easier sell’ for UGA in summer months ahead

They’ll be back to Athens in June and turn their attention to summer workouts and gearing up for the season opener against North Carolina Sept. 3 in the Georgia Dome. It’s the kind of big-name opponent to open the season that coach Kirby Smart has said he prefers to line up. “Obviously, coming into the Dome, playing North Carolina, it’s such a great opponent,” he said.

Chase Rice starts country career at the top

Chase Rice pretty much skimmed through the country music playbook, skipping over the chapters that said to be successful in country music you had to climb the ladder. “We’ve had a strange, strange career path because I’ve built my career as a headliner, which is not that typical,” he said in early May during a phone call from his 70-acre Nashville ranch.

Chansky’s Notebook: Forever’s Voice

Like other legends we know, Woody’s voice will always be with us. The way Woody Durham and his family handled his recent diagnosis is like he called UNC games in the heyday of his 40-year career as Voice of the Tar Heels. Perfectly. Friends and those who heard Woody speak in recent years knew something was amiss, and while he was trying to find out exactly what, his family made the decision that he would no longer be in the public eye.

How former UNC football player Matt Merletti became reunited with his long lost jersey

Giovani Bernard, extension rare on many levels

Giovani Bernard, 24, falls into line with the type of player the Bengals love to reward. Maybe even the poster child of such. Perform on the field, act unselfishly, excel as a teammate and represent the organization well in the community. Since stepping into the building after being drafted 37th overall in 2013, Bernard hit the grand slam of all four categories. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

Will UNC Have a 1,000 Yard Receiver in 2016?

UNC has not had a 1000 yard receiver during the Larry Fedora era. Eric Ebron came close in 2013 with 973 yards. Quinshad Davis in 2012, Ryan Switzer in 2014 and Mack Hollins in 2015 topped out at around 700 yards. In Fedora's offense the ball gets spread around and the nature of the offense, with short passes, doesn't lend itself to big gains. (Tar Heel Blog)
