My Carolina Experience: Cam Holland

“At Carolina I learned how to be a role model and how to give back," Cam Holland said. "Even now my pursuit of those things are invaluable to me and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. That same pursuit drives me to bring health care to communities who have been marginalized by society, like minority communities, the mentally and physically disabled, and the underprivileged."

Ranking the ACC's Toughest Non-Conference College Football Schedules in 2016

6. North Carolina: The opener against the Bulldogs in the Georgia Dome will be a huge test against a team that should vie for the SEC East title. The Tar Heels then travel to face an Illinois team that they should beat, but a Power Five opponent nonetheless. The other two non-conference games, against James Madison and The Citadel, should be relatively easy wins. (Athlon Sports)

North Carolina's defensive line looks for more explosiveness

Gene Chizik plans to let his defense off the leash a bit more, particularly on early downs. A year ago, UNC blitzed just 17 percent of the time on first and second down, the lowest rate in the ACC. This year, that number should climb. “We can be more aggressive,” Chizik said, “and looking back at last year, that probably would have helped us.” (ESPN.com)

Eight current college football stars who'd be great in the WWE

R.J. Prince has spent his first two seasons at UNC fighting for a job on the offensive line. He has always looked the part. At 6-foot-6, 325 pounds, he's a giant, with a long reach and ferocious power. The potential is obvious, and Prince hopes that eventually translates to a career in the NFL. But that's a tough road, he admits, and so it's always good to have a Plan B. (ESPN.com)

Ranking the ACC's Toughest College Football Schedules in 2016

(Athlon Sports)
