On Friday, former North Carolina offensive guard Landon Turner will take part in the NFL Combine.

West Virginia native turned-UNC football star Ryan Switzer hasn’t forgotten where he came from

Many WVU fans know exactly who UNC standout wide receiver Ryan Switzer is. A majority of them wish the West Virginia native sported Old Gold and Blue instead of Carolina Blue, but it didn’t work out that way. Though Switzer took his speed and versatility to UNC, the senior still roots for his home state of West Virginia, especially when it comes to the hardwood. (Blue Gold Sports)

Ranking the ACC Football-Basketball Coaching Duos

4. North Carolina: Football: Larry Fedora, Basketball: Roy Williams; Williams has his best UNC team in at least five years. Williams is looking to reach his eighth Final Four. It probably took Fedora longer to turn the corner with the football program than UNC fans would have hoped, but the Heels are coming off their best season since 1997. (Athlon Sports)

Georgia State Announces Home and Home Football Series with North Carolina

Georgia State has announced a future football home and home series with North Carolina, marking the first time the Panthers will host a school from the ACC. The Panthers will travel to Chapel Hill on Sept. 11, 2021, with North Carolina returning to Atlanta the following season to play Georgia State on Sept. 10, 2022. (Georgia State Sports)

Ranking the QB position in the ACC

6. North Carolina: Marquise Williams was a second-team, all-ACC selection after combining for more than 4,000 yards of total offense last season and setting nearly two dozen school records. Junior Mitch Trubisky saw action as Williams’ backup the past two seasons, but the dual-threat quarterback should slide into the starting role with ease in 2016. (Orlando Sentinel)

The most underrated player on each Top 25 team

18. North Carolina Tar Heels: It is easy for a player like Mack Hollins to not be fully appreciated from the outside looking in. But the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Hollins actually led UNC in receiving yards (745) during an 11-3 campaign in 2015 despite being third in catches (30), and he should step into an even bigger role in 2016. (ESPN.com)

North Carolina expects breakout spring from QB Mitch Trubisky

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora isn’t going to hand Mitch Trubisky the starting quarterback job. It doesn’t matter that the fourth-year player nearly started earlier in his career. Fedora knows Trubisky, a redshirt junior from Ohio, has “paid his dues,” however, and expects a breakout spring for the prohibitive favorite to start for the Tar Heels in 2016. (ESPN.com)

25 Greatest Linebackers in NFL History

1. Lawrence Taylor: L.T. could hit like a freight train, but it was his finesse and high football IQ that helped him revolutionize the linebacker position. He is not only the greatest linebacker in NFL history, he is one of the game’s greatest players period. Taylor is one of only two defensive players in the history of the NFL to be named NFL MVP. (Athlon Sports)

College Football's Top 20 Quarterbacks on the Rise for 2016

Mitch Trubisky, North Carolina: UNC’s offense won’t miss a beat in 2016 with a new quarterback under center. Trubisky has waited his turn behind Marquise Williams but has played in 19 games over the last two seasons and completed 82 of 125 passes for 1,014 yards in that span. The Ohio native should emerge as one of the ACC’s top quarterbacks. (Athlon Sports)

UNC's NCAA case has outlasted sanctioned football assistant John Blake's ban

If it feels like UNC's NCAA case has been dragging on for years, it's because it has. The last vestiges of the Tar Heels' case won't come to a conclusion until at least April of 2016. Considering this all started in 2010, that's a long time. So long, in fact, that former football assistant John Blake's three-year show-cause penalty has already expired, and he was just hired as the defensive line coach at Lamar. (SB Nation)
