UNC-Miami Larry Fedora Postgame Quotes

Larry Fedora opening comments: “Rough ball game today. I’m not sure if any one of our three phases played very well. We’ve got to go back and evaluate the tape look at it, get it corrected and hopefully come out and be a better football team in two weeks.” On the offense: “It was very disappointing. I don’t think we played well up front. Anywhere. Quarterback, running backs, wide receivers." (Inside Carolina)

Turner's Take: Keep Punching

Carolina’s offense continued its unfortunate pattern of slow starts –they didn’t snap the ball on the Miami side of the 50-yard line until the second half– and that ripples out to effect the whole team. “We were behind so early, and so fast, it was hard to stay in a game plan, so your game plan, you have to adjust with it, and we didn’t do a very good job of that,” Fedora said afterward.

Tar Heels Stunned in South Florida

North Carolina entered Saturday’s contest with Miami in control of its Coastal Division destiny. The Tar Heels left Sun Life Stadium with their worst ACC loss under Larry Fedora and questions surrounding their potential bowl eligibility. “This is a tough one,” sophomore receiver Ryan Switzer said following UNC’s 47-20 loss. “We all came down here feeling like we could compete, and they just whipped us.” (Inside Carolina)

Hurricanes steamroll Tar Heels

After two straight wins, it appeared the North Carolina football team was back on track. The team turned a corner following four straight losses, and a Coastal Division crown wasn't out of the question. But the train to the ACC championship derailed in a catastrophic wreck in Sun Life Stadium as the Tar Heels were decimated by Miami 47-20 Saturday afternoon. (Carolina Blue)

Recap & Analysis: Miami 47 UNC 20

Ugly doesn't begin to describe it. Miami's Duke Johnson ran for 177 yards, had 49 yards receiving and scored three touchdowns as the Hurricanes blew a 16-6 game open late in the first half on the way to a 47-20 win over the Tar Heels. Anyone who has been paying attention recently knew Johnson would be difficult to stop for the Tar Heels. (Tar Heel Blog)

Duke Johnson scores 3 TDs, Miami rolls past Heels 47-20

Duke Johnson went over the 3,000-yard mark for his career and scored three times despite getting most of the second half off, Brad Kaaya threw three touchdown passes and Miami rolled past North Carolina 47-20 on Saturday. Quarterback Marquise Williams had a pair of touchdown runs and Cayson Collins returned a fumble 39 yards for a score for UNC (4-5, 2-3). (ESPN.com)

Rapid Reactions: Miami

There was a moment when it looked like Cayson Collins' 39-yard fumble return for a touchdown might be a momentum turner, as it took the Tar Heels from trailing 9-0 to within 9-6. Instead, it just turned out to be a temporary island in a hurricane of Miami points. There's just not much to say about that 47-20 defeat--the 'Canes were better in every phase of the game.

Miami takes on UNC for homecoming in another crucial ACC matchup

Homecoming brings another crucial Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division matchup this weekend. Miami (5-3, 2-2 ACC), which has won two games in a row, hosts North Carolina (4-4, 2-2 ACC) Saturday afternoon at Sun Life Stadium. Both teams trail Duke (6-1, 2-1 ACC) and Georgia Tech (6-2, 3-2 ACC), finding themselves in a four-way tie with Pittsburgh and Virginia in the standings. (FOX Sports)

Preview & Prediction: UNC at Miami

UNC takes a two game winning streak to Miami and controls its own destiny for winning the Coastal Division. Yes, that statement still sounds really weird and no the odd are probably nowhere in UNC's favor of doing much in the next four games but get to six wins. In the context of just this game, the Tar Heels face a tall order. Prediction: Miami 44 UNC 35 (Tar Heel Blog)

How much heavier is Giovani Bernard's workload?

Amid concerns that Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard's string of injuries are a matter of him taking on a more significant workload than before, we turned to ESPN Stats & Information for help comparing his second year to his rookie season. (ESPN.com)

Miami, #ByTheNumbers, game 9 vs. North Carolina

QB Marquise Williams is one of five players in the country leading his team in both passing yards and rushing yards. Williams ranks second in the ACC and 15th in the country in total offense, averaging 316.5 total yards per game. Only FSU’s Jameis Winston (320.8) is averaging more in the ACC. (Cane Insider)

Six storylines: UNC vs. Miami

Miami freshman quarterback Brad Kaaya has started all eight games for the Hurricanes and has done well considering his inexperience. Kaaya completes 61% of his passes and averages nine yards per attempt. The California native has 17 passing touchdowns and nine interceptions. Yet, if there is a weakness to Kaaya's game it would be his lack of mobility. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels focused on Miami, not Hurricanes’ fans

Miami isn’t known for having rabid crowds at Sun Life Stadium, especially for day games. “The stands are just so far that you could almost have another game from the stands to the bench area,” North Carolina junior guard Landon Turner said. “We’re not too stressed about crowd level or home-field advantage.” Instead, Turner said the Tar Heels are just focused on the Hurricanes themselves.
