Larry Fedora Post-NC State Quotes

Larry Fedora: "Give Dave and his team credit for a hard-fought win. It was a heck of a game. We just ran out of gas. I’ll tell you this.

Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. NC State

It's impressive how the 2017 Tar Heels stayed focused and competed throughout the entire season. But ultimately, it's still frustrating to end the year with a second straight loss to NC State and a third loss in four games in the series. The running game basically decided the 33-21 game. State was completely committed to the run and rolled up 292 yards on the ground. (GoHeels.com)

How senior leadership has helped UNC get through a rough football season

Chase Rice’s Long, ‘Grueling’ Journey to Not Quite Reinventing Himself

Chase Rice was ready to pivot, he just needed the songs and support to do it. Finding both for Lambs & Lions was a long, “grueling” process that took three years, several producers, multiple versions of at least five or six songs and at least one very difficult conversation. “For me, I wanted to get away from ‘Girl, perfect night, stars out, tailgate down, sippin’ on something, dirt road.'” (Taste of Country)

Perseverance Pays Off For Nathan Elliott
