Complete coverage of North Carolina Football.

UNC receiver Damien Washington serves as leader at his position

No drops. As the North Carolina football team's practice wound down Monday afternoon, receivers coach Gunter Brewer had one more task for his positional group: 24 catches in a row. The task wouldn’t be too tall for the sure hands of UNC's receivers. Still, as the 24th pass left Brewer’s hand, all eyes were on Damien Washington to finish practice with a snag. And the senior delivered. (Daily Tar Heel)

ICTV: All Eyes On Marquise

Inside Carolina pointed its camera exclusively on North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams at a recent practice to watch him work on his mechanics. Williams has returned to full health following offseason hip surgery and the benefits should result in better consistency for UNC's record-setting quarterback. “I think it’s been a big difference for him,” quarterbacks coach Keith Heckendorf said.

Countdown To Kickoff: Week 1

As Tar Heel fans everywhere count down the days to the 2015 season opener on September 3 in Charlotte against South Carolina, GoHeels.com is satisfying its football itch with the Countdown to Kickoff campaign. Last November 20, the Tar Heels put together what Larry Fedora called a "complete game" in routing Duke, 45-20, in Durham before a Thursday night national TV audience. (GoHeels.com)

Defensive Line Development For UNC

How's this for a challenge: A team that struggled mightily a year ago employing a defensive scheme that required just three true down linemen now hopes to trust three times that contingent by Sept. 3. Furthermore, they, meaning the Tar Heels, are looking to do this using two true freshmen and a redshirt one, a true sophomore, two redshirt sophomores and a junior playing his third position in as many seasons.

Quinshad Davis poised to dazzle in ‘freak’ show

Bug Howard made it sound like North Carolina senior Quinshad Davis is other-worldly as a wide receiver. “Oh, he’s a freak, baby!” Howard said Monday after Day 8 of UNC’s training camp. Davis had metal rods inserted in his legs during the offseason, so now it’s like he’s a freak-a-zoid, Howard hinted. “He’s got new legs,” Howard said. (Durham Herald-Sun)

ICTV: Fedora Impressed By Defensive Line

When Larry Fedora was asked after practice on Monday about which single defensive position group has stood out to him during camp, the North Carolina head coach made a somewhat surprising choice. "The guys that have probably impressed the most would be the D-line," Fedora said. "The D-line as a group has probably impressed the most the first six days of practice." (Inside Carolina)

Monday Larry Fedora Post-Practice Quotes

Larry Fedora on the first day scrimmage: It was a pretty typical scrimmage in that there were some great things that happened and there were some catastrophic things that happened. The great thing is that all the catastrophic and bad things that happened are all correctable. The good thing is that it is the first scrimmage and we have another practice tomorrow. The effort was tremendous. (Carolina Blue)

Chansky’s Notebook: A Fair Call by the Coach

Larry Fedora is a stand up guy. Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight! I love Larry Fedora being UNC’s football coach, and have thought that since an old friend Fedora used to work for said he was a straight shooter, forward thinker and a no B.S. guy. He wants to win but wants to do it the right way. Yet he’s competitive and no fool. (Chapelboro.com)

Former Steeler Jeff Reed escorted out of Hall of Fame game

Jeff Reed has been out of the NFL since 2011, but the former Steelers kicker is still close to the game and was on hand at the Hall of Fame game on Sunday night between the Steelers and Vikings. But the night didn't end well for the two-time Super Bowl champion who played for the Steelers between 2002 and 2010. The eccentric kicker appeared to be removed from the stadium in Canton, Ohio for being intoxicated and getting into a confrontation with another fan. (Sporting News)

Bug Howard Taking Snaps at Tight End

Bug Howard has always been a wide receiver with tight end size. This season, Howard has gotten several reps at tight end during North Carolina’s training camp, lining up along side split end Quinshad Davis, A-back Ryan Switzer and flanker Mack Hollins. His inclusion in the slot gives quarterback Marquise Williams his four best targets on the field at the same time. (Inside Carolina)

Offensive Line Play Highlights UNC's First Scrimmage

On the first play from scrimmage, UNC’s veteran offensive line blew open a hole that Elijah Hood burst through for an 80-yard touchdown run on Sunday. Quarterback Marquise Williams was tasked with manufacturing much of UNC’s ground game in 2014 due to youth and inexperience along the offensive line. That position group apparently made a statement with its play in the first scrimmage of training camp. (Inside Carolina)
