So This Year of UNC Athletics Turned Out to Be Pretty Good

UNC baseball isn't in the NCAA Tournament but frankly that might be the only real blemish on the current athletic year. Even the heartbreak of the way the men's basketball season ended and the dumpster fire that women's basketball has become wasn't enough to take the shine of one of the more successful seasons in recent memory. Just how good was it? (Tar Heel Blog)

Gene Chizik and UNC proving to be an excellent match

The Tar Heels’ defensive staff underwent a complete overhaul after the 2014 campaign, and Gene Chizik — taking on his first gig since getting fired by Auburn in 2012 — was brought on as the new defensive coordinator. To this point, the hire has proved to be a complete success. There was a night-and-day difference between UNC’s 2014 and 2015 defenses. (Today's U)

The name is Bond...Travis Bond

It’s not just that he’s big. At 6-6, 329 pounds, Travis Bond is the biggest of all — the largest mammal among the 85 XL men the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have in training camp this week. After a standout career at UNC, the Vikings drafted Bond in 2013 and he spent the past three seasons with the Vikes, Carolina Panthers and St. Louis Rams. (Winnipeg Free Press)

North Carolina's defense needs to take another step in 2016

Depending on your point of view, your lingering perception of North Carolina’s 2015 defense was either (A) a massive improvement from the previous season or (B) a patchwork unit that showed its true self during a disastrous bowl loss to Baylor.

Open Letter From Woody Durham

Letter from Woody Durham (audio): "Last winter, I was diagnosed with a neurocognitive disorder, primary progressive aphasia, that affects my language expression. I want to tell you this because I will no longer be doing any public speaking. I can still enjoy the company of friends and traveling with my wife, Jean, but I am not able to address groups as I did in the past." (GoHeels.com)

Lucas: What Woody Says

Today’s meeting is because Woody Durham has primary progressive aphasia, and he felt an obligation to tell Tar Heel fans why they would no longer see him making speeches or hosting events or telling stories in public.
