Weekend Preview: April 11-13

It's your last chance to get a Kenan Stadium fix until the 2014 season opener, which is over four months away. Spring games have transformed from a nice little intrasquad scrimmage into a true extra home game. This year's event features numerous gameday activities to provide that Kenan-in-the-fall flavor, and it looks like it will be accompanied by terrific weather. (GoHeels.com)

Breaking Down the Buzz: North Carolina

Glamour positions like quarterback and running back get attention in the spring, but on Saturday UNC fans should watch the defense. With Kareem Martin, Tre Boston and Jabari Price gone, the Tar Heels have very recognizable names on the depth chart. But even with the lack of star power, it is possible that the defense could be better in 2014. (CBS Sports)

Extra Points: Finding Defensive Identity

Two weeks into spring practice, signs are emerging that the Tar Heels in 2014 could stride toward better upholding their leg of the three-pronged stool. They have two young, aggressive cornerbacks in Brian Walker and Des Lawrence. Darius Lipford has moved to middle linebacker and gives the defense the edge of speed and size they've not had there.

UNC's Littrell takes charge of no-huddle offense

Seth Littrell took the job running North Carolina's offense to play the same fast-paced style that coach Larry Fedora wants. The Tar Heels close offseason drills with Saturday's annual spring game, ending Littrell's first on-field look at the unit he'll lead as UNC's new assistant head coach for offense.

Bucky Brooks: I'm A Tar Heel

I’m a Tar Heel. I’m a proud graduate of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. I’m also an African-American athlete who earned five letters with the Tar Heel football and track & field teams from 1989-1994. With our core values and principles shaped by our experiences at Carolina, I refuse to allow others to disregard the hard work of my peers or taint my appreciation for my alma mater. -- Bucky Brooks (UNCLettermen.com)

Marquise Williams eyes UNC’s starting quarterback job

Mitch Trubisky gave the media his interpretation of the UNC quarterback competition, suggesting he would’ve started after Bryn Renner’s injury if not for his redshirt. That he doesn’t look up to Marquise Williams. That the job is his. The mention of those words brought about a change in Williams. The Marquise Williams who’s called the competition a friendly one — disappeared. (Daily Tar Heel)

Desmond Lawrence easing into starting corner job

When freshman Desmond Lawrence suffered a knee injury early in training camp last August, most everyone must have figured that he would likely be redshirting the 2013 season. Most everyone, that is, except his head coach. That very afternoon, as Lawrence lay awaiting his immediate future, UNC head coach Larry Fedora called and reassured him that he wouldn't be forgotten.

Plenty Of Questions Remain For Tar Heels Heading Into Spring Game

The Carolina football team is ready to put on a show for the outside world Saturday in Chapel Hill. The annual Blue & White Spring Game will allow fans to get a glimpse of what is to come when the competition really heats up later in the fall. The Tar Heel offense, by all appearances, seems ‘locked and loaded’. But will the defense be able to answer the bell? (Chapelboro.com)

UNC Spring Practice Observations

Ryan Switzer should have a big year. He has a much better grasp of the offense and should be able to contribute on that side of the ball a lot more. Switzer has been wearing a non-contact orange jersey all spring. He has an injured shoulder. Marquise Williams is confident and seems to have a very good relationship with the team and the offense. You can tell he is leader of this team. (Carolina Blue)

ACC spring games preview

North Carolina: 3 p.m. on Saturday (ESPN3); One thing to watch: True freshman running back Elijah Hood. The four-star recruit was rated the nation's No. 9 running back in the Class of 2014 by ESPN.com and No. 80 overall in the ESPN 300. The early enrollee has had such a good spring that he could see some immediate playing time, even though the Tar Heels are deep at the position. (ESPN.com)

Heckendorf Talks QBs

The top storyline throughout North Carolina’s spring practice has been the quarterback competition between Marquise Williams and Mitch Trubisky. The duo has split reps during spring ball, down to the point of alternating days in running with the first team. New quarterbacks coach Keith Heckendorf provided his perspective ahead of Saturday’s spring game. (Inside Carolina)

Seth Littrell Q&A: Catching up with UNC’s new offensive coordinator

When North Carolina offensive coordinator Blake Anderson left to become the coach at Arkansas State, it was clear from the get-go that Tar Heels coach Larry Fedora would look for someone who had a similar offensive philosophy. Enter Seth Littrell, who had spent the last two seasons as the offensive coordinator at Indiana. (Sports Illustrated)
