Ryan Switzer on returning for senior year, breaking records

North Carolina wide receiver and punt returner Ryan Switzer had the option to turn pro and test his stock in the NFL draft last offseason, but he opted to remain at UNC for his senior year and now has the opportunity to break multiple records. Looking back, Switzer said staying at Carolina was the right choice. (Carolina Blue)

UNC opponent film preview - James Madison

James Madison has only played North Carolina twice in school history, and the Tar Heels came out on top in both. However, as a 2-0 team, I’m sure they would love to prove themselves against a FBS opponent. Former Tar Heel safety and coaching veteran Bob Trott (1973-1975) is also now in his first year as Defensive Coordinator for the Dukes. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC OL R.J. Prince Moves into Starting Role

It’s become a common occurrence to see John Ferranto and R.J. Prince huddled together at lunchtime at the Kenan Football Center breaking down game film. This is not a once or twice a week occasion, but a scheduled session each afternoon from Monday through Thursday. That connection highlights the forced transition that has occurred at UNC's right guard position. (Inside Carolina)

Can James Madison spring an FCS upset at North Carolina?

Don’t be surprised if James Madison University isn’t exactly intimidated to go to North Carolina this Saturday. Don’t be shocked if an FCS team fearlessly confronts a Tar Heel team looking for a repeat trip to the ACC title game. The Dukes have a history of knocking off FBS opponents, including a win at SMU last year. (Today's U)

Former UNC player Tre Boston decked out in UGA gear after losing wager to Thomas Davis

Looks like a bet was made between Carolina Panthers' Tre Boston and Thomas Davis over the game between the Georgia Bulldogs and North Carolina Tar Heels, and it was time for Boston to hold up his end of the bargain. Davis, who played at Georgia, posted a video from the Panthers' locker room of Boston, who played at UNC, decked out in Bulldogs clothes. (11 Alive)

Hood and Logan Building an Identity for UNC Football

Through its first two games in 2016, the North Carolina football team has gashed opponents with its rushing attack when it’s chosen to do so—as tailbacks Elijah Hood and T.J. Logan work to carve out an identity for this year’s Tar Heel squad. The combination of Hood’s raw power and Logan’s blinding speed has been a nightmare for opponents. (Chapelboro.com)

A North Carolina football player turned himself in on an arrest warrant Wednesday morning for sexual battery and assault on a female student in February. In a news release, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said Allen Anthony Artis, 21, was released by the magistrate on a $5,000 unsecured bond. (Associated Press)

Why wins against FCS teams shouldn't always be regarded lightly

Thirty-four FCS teams would currently be favored over the worst FBS team (UL Monroe) on a neutral field, according to ESPN’s FPI projections. Beating North Dakota State or James Madison (whom North Carolina faces this week) or any other FCS top 25 team should not be considered a black mark on a team’s résumé. (ESPN.com)

UNC Football Film Review: Win vs. Illinois

The quarterback draw was such a key component to the North Carolina offense while Marquise Williams was at the helm, so it was good to see the offensive play-calling staff look to go back to it last weekend with Mitch Trubisky. I’d expect that we’ll see more of this from the offense moving forward given its success versus Illinois. (Tar Heel Blog)

The Dukes hired head coach Mike Houston, formerly the head coach at the Citadel, before the season’s start and his tenure in Harrisonburg, VA is off to a hot start. James Madison beat Morehead State, 80-7, in its season opener and took down Central Connecticut State 56-21 last week. (Inside Carolina)
