Art’s Angle: A Great Day Nonetheless

The new deal announced earlier Saturday between UNC and Larry Fedora was far more reaching and, in fact, bodes well for the Tar Heels getting back to Charlotte. In making a seven-year commitment to each other, UNC and Fedora have agreed that Carolina Football has such potential to become a regular ACC contender that neither has to look anywhere else for a long time.

A quick guide to Baylor's postseason, including an opportunity to earn respect

Baylor had to deal with injuries at the quarterback position more than almost any team in the nation. The Bears lost all three scholarship quarterbacks at some point this season: opening day starter Seth Russell with a fractured vertebra in his neck against Iowa State, backup Jarrett Stidham with a chipped bone in his ankle against Oklahoma State and third-string Chris Johnson to a concussion in the first quarter against Texas.

UNC too late in solving Clemson’s defense, then doomed by two turnovers, phantom penalty

Clemson’s defensive line manhandled UNC’s offensive line during most of the Tigers’ 45–37 victory in the ACC championship game. By the time the Tar Heels seemed to solve that defense in the second half, two key turnovers and a phantom offside penalty on an onside kick kept them from erasing a 19-point third-quarter deficit. “That’s the best team I’ve played in my entire life,” UNC tailback Elijah Hood said.

Larry Fedora comments on Seth Littrell, new offensive coordinator search

After UNC's 45-37 loss to Clemson in the ACC title game, Carolina head coach Larry Fedora was asked about Coach Littrell and the upcoming search for a new offensive coordinator. "Seth Littrell, I can't say enough great things about what Seth did. There's no doubt in my mind Seth is going to be a great head coach. So going forward, we'll take our time," Fedora explained.

2015 Russell Athletic Bowl, Baylor vs. North Carolina: Date, time, location and more

After being robbed of a chance at winning the ACC Championship thanks to a phantom offside call on what would have been a recovered onside kick, the Tar Heels finish the season with two losses. This was their first loss since the ever-confusing season-opening loss to South Carolina that would haunt them for the rest of the regular season. (SB Nation)

Extra Points: One Play Short

The screen shot taken from ESPN showing the yellow line and no Tar Heels having crossed it on a crucial onside kick had spread like a jolt of electricity through the smart phone universe of the North Carolina football team within five minutes of the end of their crushing loss to Clemson Saturday night in the ACC Championship Game.

Five with Fedora – Part 12

How would you describe the effort that your team showed against the #1 team in the nation? Larry Fedora: “What I saw from my team was the same grit and determination I’ve seen from them all year long. It shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody that they fought the way that they did. Never once this year, in any situation, have they panicked or let their foot off the gas with their intensity." (Sports Glutton)

UNC coach Larry Fedora pulling for Clemson to win national title

No. 17 Baylor motivated to take on No. 10 UNC in Russell Athletic Bowl

Baylor coach Art Briles expects his team to be highly motivated when it faces North Carolina in the Russell Athletic Bowl. “We could go to a bunch of bowl games this year and we’d have a hard time finding many more quality opponents than North Carolina,” Briles said. “That’s the reality of it. They deserve where they’re at. I don’t think motivation is an issue at all.” (Waco Tribune-Herald)

ACC backs its officials on offside call in championship game

North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora says the refs missed it. So did UNC's athletics director, Bubba Cunningham. Video evidence appears to back them up. The ACC says it's officials got the call right, but a questionable late-game offside call provided yet another infamous officiating highlight for the league in Saturday's league championship game in Charlotte. (Greensboro News & Record)

Tar Heels have reason to be upbeat, even after championship game loss

Three months earlier, Larry Fedora looked around a losing locker room at Bank of America Stadium and saw something special in his football team. Saturday night after another close, disappointing loss at the same venue — this time a 45-37 ACC Championship Game setback to Clemson — the Tar Heels coach was even more convinced than ever that he was right.

The Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: Clemson

It was going to require a Herculean effort and a very clean game to challenge Clemson, and while the effort was there, it was far from a clean game. And yet, with one more break, who knows. North Carolina acquitted themselves as a top-10 team and played the top-ranked Tigers to a one-score game. That is just about as much as anyone could ask for. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC Headed to Russell Athletic Bowl
