Monday Football Depth Chart, Notes & Quotes

UNC released its depth chart Monday for Saturday’s home game versus Louisville, which visits Kenan Stadium with 2016 Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson still at quarterback. Of note, Brandon Harris remains listed first at quarterback with “or” next to his name with Chazz Surratt listed second. Nathan Elliott remains on the depth chart but is third. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Michael Carter's Talents On Full Display In Carolina Debut

One of the bright spots in UNC’s puzzling 35-30 loss to California at home Saturday was the production of freshman running back Michael Carter. Carter ran the ball 11 times for 94 yards, scored two touchdowns - both on option pitches from Chazz Surratt - and his longest run went for 47 yards. Carter was a bit modest speaking about his performance afterward. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Steve Logan on UNC's QB play, lack of defensive pressure, and targeting

“When a quarterback hits a linebacker in the facemask, it’s a vision problem," Steve Logan ranted as we folded into a discussion of the Tar Heels loss at Kenan Stadium. Brandon Harris overthrew an easy touchdown pass and threw two bad interceptions and probably lost the quarterback job to Chazz Surratt as much as the southpaw took it away. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Tar Heels' high-scoring attack facing rare uncertainty at QB

North Carolina's quarterback uncertainty has extended into the season. Coach Larry Fedora already knew it would be tough to replace No. 2 overall NFL draft pick Mitch Trubisky at quarterback long before the start of a preseason camp that saw the Tar Heels trying to sort through their options. But things didn't get any clearer in a season-opening loss. (Associated Press)

It’s back to the plan for Bears rookie QB Mitch Trubisky

Not long after rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s first preseason concluded, he was asked if he had a better sense of what he needs to do in the regular season. “I’m continuing to figure that out more and more as reps get cut down,” Trubisky said after the Bears’ 25-0 loss to the Browns last Thursday. “[But] I have a pretty good idea of what needs to be done on a weekly basis." (Chicago Sun-Times)

Loss to Cal shows UNC could be in for very long season

Eight bowl appearances in nine years. Nineteen wins through the last two seasons. Why wouldn’t North Carolina be a force in the ACC this fall? The Tar Heels entered 2017 with perhaps the most talented defense they’ve fielded in the Larry Fedora era. Speaking of Fedora, the 54-year-old clinched bowl eligibility in eight of his first nine years as a head coach. (FanRag Sports)

Fedora still noncommittal on QB choice, even as Surratt’s stock rises

Larry Fedora continues to be noncommittal about North Carolina’s still-unsettled quarterback situation. But if you read between the lines of both the Tar Heels’ depth chart and the coach’s regular weekly press conference Monday, it appears as though redshirt freshman Chazz Surratt is inching closer to the starting job. If he hasn’t won it already. (North State Journal)

UNC vs. Louisville: The tale of the tape

Two days removed from the North Carolina football team's 35-30 loss against California in its season opener, Tar Heels head coach Larry Fedora met with reporters on Monday inside the Kenan Football Center. Here are five notes from the press conference, leading up to the Tar Heels' ACC opener against No. 16 Louisville on Saturday at Kenan Stadium: (GoHeels.com)

Larry Fedora Addresses Media After Tape Evaluation

Larry Fedora was pleased with the poise and communication of both quarterbacks, Chazz Surratt and Brandon Harris. There has been no decision made on who will be the starting quarterback on Saturday vs. Louisville. "We'll go through this week again and decide what we are going to do" Fedora said it is possible they will use two quarterbacks again vs Louisville. (Inside Carolina)

Fedora: Louisville's Lamar Jackson a 'Phenomenal Player'

Larry Fedora has faced a plethora of dual-threat quarterbacks in six years at UNC, but Saturday marks his first date with reigning Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson of Louisville. Jackson will arrive at Kenan Stadium on the heels of one of the greatest seasons in ACC history. Jackson churned out 485 yards of total offense in Louisville's season-opening win over Purdue. (Inside Carolina)

No Decision at Quarterback for UNC

North Carolina’s quarterback competition will continue into game week preparation for Saturday’s matchup with No. 16 Louisville, Larry Fedora confirmed on Monday. LSU grad transfer Brandon Harris started UNC’s season-opening loss to California on Saturday, although it was redshirt freshman Chazz Surratt who piled up the stats and played the final three series.

Michael Jordan Named UNC Honorary Captain vs. Louisville

Michael Jordan will return to UNC on Saturday to serve as the football team's honorary captain against Louisville. The Tar Heels also plan to honor the 2017 men's basketball national championship team. Players and coaches will receive their championship rings at halftime. Jordan last visited UNC in March to announce UNC Football's partnership with Jordan Brand. (Sports Illustrated)

Three things we learned from UNC’s loss to Cal

After Saturday it is blatantly obvious that if UNC is to get a win in an opening game that doesn’t involve an ACC team, it’s a happy coincidence. The offense wasn’t that complicated, the quarterbacks were continuously rotated which didn’t allow one to get into a rhythm, and the one real shining star on offense, Michael Carter, got only two touches in the 2nd half. (Tar Heel Blog)

A flock of flunking grades for Triangle college coaches in Week 1

Larry Fedora, UNC, F: It was a dreadful opener for the Tar Heel defense, which got completely picked apart by Ross Bowers in a 35-30 California win at Chapel Hill. But worse, the turning point was a senseless late hit to Bowers’ helmet by defensive tackle Jalen Dalton with Carolina up 17-7 in the second half. Dalton got ejected. Bowers and his offense came to life. (WRAL Sports Fan)
