Early 2016 ACC football forecast favors Clemson, UNC

In a seven-team division that features five returning starting quarterbacks, picking a team that lost the most dynamic player at that position in school history seems irrational. But Mitch Trubisky, the heir apparent to Marquise Williams at North Carolina, has played in 19 games and thrown 125 passes. (Daily Press)

With 11 wins and no NCAA concern, North Carolina turning recruiting corner

Larry Fedora experienced a couple of “firsts” at North Carolina on signing day. To start, the Tar Heels left the fax machine languish in the storage closet. There was no use for the antiquated device that’s become obsolete just about everywhere but the college football domain. All of the school's letters of intent were received via text message.

UNC's Offensive Staff Plan TBD

Larry Fedora said he will be move involved in the Tar Heels' play-calling not long after announcing Chris Kapilovic’s promotion to offensive coordinator on Wednesday. The details on how the staff collaboration will come together have yet to be worked out. “I’m going to be more involved in the play-calling than I have been since I’ve been here,” Fedora said on Signing Day.

Giants WR Hakeem Nicks sending water bottles to Flint

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is sending 17,000 bottles of water to a church in Flint, Mich. The water bottles will be distributed to locals in the area affected by contaminated water in the public system. Corrosive water from the Flint River has leached lead from the city’s aging pipeline, leading to a dangerous level of the toxic element in the water. (Sports Illustrated)

UNC football continues to make recruiting inroads in Northern Virginia, Maryland under Larry Fedora

In Fedora’s four recruiting classes since he took over in Chapel Hill in 2012, North Carolina has signed 10 Washington, D.C. area players. Virginia and Virginia Tech, which have long tapped Northern Virginia for talent, each have 11 signees in that span. The trend began in 2014, when four local standouts pledged to join the Tar Heels, led by All-Met defensive back M.J. Stewart (Yorktown) and All-Met quarterback Caleb Henderson (Lake Braddock).

UNC coach Larry Fedora: NCAA cloud has dissipated and people are tired of it

During his national signing day press conference last year, in February 2015, North Carolina coach Larry Fedora sounded exasperated by the continued uncertainty surrounding the long-running NCAA infractions case at UNC. He said then that he and his staff had to address questions about the case “on a daily basis.” (Charlotte Observer)

UNC Football Spring Game Set For April 16

North Carolina's annual Spring Football Game will be held Saturday, April 16, at 3 p.m. at Kenan Stadium. Admission is free.

UNC Football: Fedora and Chizik No Longer Selling Hope

UNC head football coach Larry Fedora announced Wednesday, on National Signing Day, the addition of 19 new recruits. Fedora—fresh off an 11-win season and a contract extension—used this season’s success to help bring in the first full recruiting class of his five-year tenure in Chapel Hill. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC signee Roscoe Johnson has good connection with Tar Heels

Union County wide receiver Roscoe Johnson was asked during the National Signing Day ceremony which friends he wanted to pull out of the audience for a picture with him. Johnson started naming so many names that he was just handed the microphone to do it himself. When he called them by their nicknames, there was laughter. Then he put on a pair of sunglasses and enjoyed his moment in the spotlight. (Go Upstate)

Tar Heels In The Super Bowl

Super Bowl 50 marks the fifth time UNC has had players on both teams in the game. Tre Boston is a safety for the Panthers and Sylvester Williams is a defensive tackle for the Broncos. Williams is making his second appearance in the Super Bowl in just his third season in the NFL. Boston has been at his best in the postseason this year, registering three tackles, a sack and an interception. (GoHeels.com)

Depth of North Carolina's 2016 class marks new chapter

If North Carolina didn't exactly hit a home run with its 2016 signing class -- ESPN graded it as a B-minus -- then it at least counts as a crucial turning point in the development of the program. This was the first time in coach Larry Fedora's tenure that UNC was able to sign a full class, and while NCAA investigations remain ongoing, Fedora is eager to turn the page. (ESPN.com)
