ICTV: M.J. Stewart Interview

The 2015 All-ACC second team member (ACSMA) and All-ACC honorable mention (Coaches) M.J. Stewart finished last season with 18 passes defended, 14 pass breakups, 62 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, and four interception. The Arlington, Virginia native shared his thoughts with Inside Carolina. (Inside Carolina)

Mitch Trubisky ready to lead North Carolina

Mitch Trubisky has waited three years for this opportunity. He sat and watched starting quarterback Marquise Williams rack up records, but now the redshirt junior finally gets a chance to lead the Tar Heels. "I’m excited. I'm trying to lead the troops and it starts with day one. Show the guys that I am the number one guy and can lead," Trubisky said at preseason camp. (Carolina Blue)

Zach Brown the next man up for Buffalo Bills

It's easy to forget that Zach Brown was penciled in as a starter when the Buffalo Bills signed him in April. That's until Reggie Ragland took an eraser to Brown's name on the depth chart. All of that may have changed, however, when Ragland suffered a non-contact knee injury during practice Friday. That could put Brown right back into a starting job. (Buffalo News)

Buffalo Bills waive injured Kevin Reddick

Kevin Reddick is out of action with a knee injury which led the Bills to put him on waivers with the injured designation. Reddick would revert to injured reserve if he goes unclaimed and can eventually reach an injury settlement to become a free agent once he’s ready to play. Reddick played five games for the Bills last season. He’s also spent time with the Panthers, Chargers and Saints. (NBC Sports)

Greg Little working to be an answer at WR for Bills

On the eve of training camp, there wasn’t much buzz surrounding journeyman receiver Greg Little and while he is far from a sure thing to secure the No. 3 on the depth chart, he has opened some eyes during this first week at St. John Fisher. Listed at 6-2 and 220 pounds, Little casts an imposing physical presence on the field. (Buffalo Bills)

UNC Football's Aussie Addition: Tom Sheldon

UNC’s summertime secret – the recruitment of Australian rules football player Tom Sheldon – was finally revealed when training camp opened on Friday. There have been whispers of a strong-legged lefty from Down Under, although the mentions lacked other details. Larry Fedora often prefers to keep items hidden from the public, and in this case, he succeeded. (Inside Carolina)

Extra Points: Perfection

It was just after noon when practice number two of the Tar Heels’ August camp ended and the offense spread out the width of the field to run three across-and-back conditioning sprints, and then senior receiver Mack Hollins was called in front of the group to put the cherry on top: Two perfect jumping jacks.

Tar Heels build bonds within team

Coming off an 11-win season with many of the key components in tow and a likely preseason national ranking, there’s no shortage of potential for North Carolina’s football team. Not so fast, coach Larry Fedora said Saturday. “We have to figure out what makes this team work,” he said. “I think we have some of the pieces of the puzzle.” (Burlington Times News)

Disappointing end to 2015 fuels UNC’s motivation

North Carolina started fall football practice Friday and the Tar Heels look forward to putting the end of last season behind them. The Heels tied a school record with 11 wins in 2015 but dropped their final two games. Baylor piled up more than 600 rushing yards on UNC in the Bears’ 49-38 win in the Russell Athletic Bowl. (WNCN)

Depth of knowledge will improve Tar Heel defense in Chizik's second year

Gene Chizik helped North Carolina significantly improve its defense in 2015 from where it was the year before in his first season as the team's defensive coordinator. Now the Tar Heels hope to build on that in year two. “It’s all about getting better, regardless,” senior defensive lineman Nazair Jones said. “Coach always says that; either you get better, or you get worse.” (WRAL Sports Fan)

Elijah Hood on being a leader

Preseason camp started this week and that means Carolina football is back in action. Elijah Hood and the Tar Heels are looking to build on what was a stellar 2015 season and Hood says it all starts with some internal motivation. "Everyone is trying to do a little bit more to push themselves to be a little bit better," Hood told reporters at the first day of practice Friday. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels don't need reminders about how their season could have ended

The fourth 11-win season in program history, a Coastal Division championship and a No. 15 ranking in the final top 25 for the 2015 season. Those are all accomplishments North Carolina could have carried into the offseason. But after the Tar Heels’ first preseason practice on Friday, its seems UNC is more focused on the sting of what it didn’t accomplish. (Greensboro News & Record)

UNC RB Elijah Hood’s Tactical Approach

The football field is like a battlefield, at least according to UNC running back Elijah Hood. After grueling weight room sessions throughout the offseason, Hood liked to curl up with a good book. That book just so happened to be The Art of War. “It gives you some instruction on tactical things that help you when you’re going into a battle-like mentality,” Hood told reporters on Friday. (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heel Fans Kick Off Fall With Meet The Heels

Young Rondy Bryant II was just one of the excited Tar Heel fans Saturday afternoon at Eddie Smith Field House for the annual Meet The Heels event. There were food trucks parked outside, but inside the field house, there was a buzz as Tar Heel fans young and old gathered to help kick off the fall sports season at North Carolina. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels' record-setting offense ready to roll again

Mack Hollins looks back at what UNC's high-scoring offense did last year and thinks the Tar Heels can do even more. That would be quite a feat, too, considering the Tar Heels put up totals never seen before in the program's century-plus history "If you're not getting better then you're getting worse," the receiver said Saturday on the team's preseason photo day.
