Carolina Kids Classic Golf Tournament Raises $93,000

The UNC Finley Golf Course in Chapel Hill played host Thursday to the 28th annual Carolina Kids Classic Charity Golf Tournament.

Who will be the ACC's 100-tackle players in 2016?

3. Donnie Miles, North Carolina. One of the unsung heroes of Gene Chizik’s defensive revival in Chapel Hill in 2015, Miles thrived in his first year as a full-time safety, completing the transition from the hybrid Ram position and tallying a league-best 128 tackles. If UNC is to build off last year’s Coastal-winning season, Miles will need to have similar production. (ESPN.com)

“Finest Example of Gridiron Architecture in the Country”

The clock was ticking the week of November 7, 1927. In five days, Davidson would come to Chapel Hill for its twenty-fifth meeting against the Tar Heels, and Kenan Stadium was set as the venue. The Tar Heels had played their last football game on Emerson Field. Tickets were priced at $2—for all seats. “There are no bad seats,” the Chapel Hill Weekly noted. (Kenan Journal)

Forever young: Julius Peppers still chasing 'rabbits' and (Super Bowl) rings

Julius Peppers is still the most impressive-looking athlete in most rooms, including the Green Bay Packers' locker room. He still runs with the defensive backs when he trains. And, oh, does he train. At age 36 and entering his 15th NFL season, Peppers let everyone in on a little secret about his longevity: The older he gets, the less time off he takes. (ESPN.com)

UNC Football: Ryan Switzer announces engagement

Extra reps benefitting Jonathan Cooper

Jonathan Cooper arrived in Foxborough earlier this year as part of a trade with the Arizona Cardinals. His change of scenery marks a second chance to prove that Arizona’s investment in him – he was the seventh pick overall in the 2013 NFL Draft – was worth it. So, getting extra work on the field with Tom Brady is helping Cooper adapt to his new system. (New England Patriots)

Who will be the ACC's 1,000-yard receivers in 2016?

4. Mack Hollins, North Carolina. If UNC is to build off last year’s Coastal division title, Hollins will likely take the next step after seasons with 745 (2015) and 613 (2014) receiving yards. He is now the go-to threat, too, after the departure of Quinshad Davis. 5. Ryan Switzer, North Carolina. (ESPN.com)

Larry Fedora goes in-depth on satellite camps

On Tuesday, CarolinaBlue spoke with UNC head coach Larry Fedora on the topic of satellite camps, a hot topic in college football. A satellite camp is a prospect camp held far from a school's campus that is usually hosted by another school in a recruiting hotbed. UNC will not participate in any satellite camps this summer, a conscious decision by Fedora. (Carolina Blue)

Who will be ACC's 1,000-yard rushers in 2016?

3. Elijah Hood, North Carolina: Hood finished with 1,463 yards last season and averaged 6.7 yards per carry -- second in the league behind Cook. With one of the strongest offensive lines in the ACC returning, Hood should be a shoo-in for a second consecutive 1,000-yard season. (ESPN.com)

ACC Coastal win totals: Can UNC bring stability to the top of the division?

North Carolina has the highest predicted win total, according to Vegas Insider, and Virginia has the lowest but the rest of the ACC's Coastal Division is separated by just 1.5 games. Making any predictions about this division is a fool's game, but I love the chaos too much not to try and predict the unpredictable. UNC, 8.5 (CBS Sports)
