UNC to debut new TV ad during first football game

UNC has scrapped its “Minds on a Mission” TV promo and will unveil a new commercial during the telecast of the opening football game Saturday. The University hinted on Twitter Thursday that the new ad would pay homage to an older commercial narrated by the late CBS correspondent Charles Kuralt, a UNC alumnus. “What is it that binds us to this place as to no other?” the tweet read.

In UNC Football Investigation, Source: ‘Twitter Accusations Wrong’

The older brother of UNC football player Jackson Boyer, who alleges he was assaulted by multiple members of his team, took to Twitter Thursday calling for head coach Larry Fedora to be fired. Cole Boyer said Thursday that more than four players are responsible for the alleged injuries to his brother. Meanwhile, a UNC source close to the football team countered Cole’s tweets.

ACC Football Preview: North Carolina

The Tar Heels turned lemons into lemonade last year by rallying from a 1-5 start to win six of their final seven games – punctuated by an emphatic Belk Bowl victory against Cincinnati. With many of those who contributed to that turnaround back, coach Larry Fedora and his team are hoping the momentum carries over in 2014. First, though, UNC must settle on a QB.

No. 23 UNC Football Kicks Off 2014, ‘Locked in On’ Liberty

The No. 23 North Carolina football team will look to shrug off the off-the-field incident and the loss of two starting cornerbacks when the Tar Heels host the defending Big South co-champion Liberty Flames Saturday at 6 p.m. in the season opener. Both UNC and Liberty are looking to build off the momentum of strong finishes in 2013. (Chapelboro.com)

T.J. Yates states case to be Falcons' backup QB

T.J. Yates made a strong case to be Atlanta's backup quarterback Thursday night. Yates threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-14 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in both teams' preseason finale. Yates had shown little in the team's first three exhibitions, completing 39.4 percent of his passes, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. But Yates shined against the Jaguars.

Injured UNC walk-on's brother points finger at Tar Heels

The brother of a North Carolina player who was reportedly the victim of a training-camp altercation has accused the program of downplaying the incident.

UNC Top 5 Potential Breakout Players

Heading into the 2014 North Carolina football season CarolinaBlue looks at five players (that you might not be familiar with) that we think could have big season and be major impact players for the Tar Heels. 1. Bug Howard - Sophomore Wide Receiver (6-4, 200): Howard caught 22 passes for 278 yards and four touchdowns in 2013. As a freshman he was used mostly as an endzone target. (Carolina Blue)

Next Men Up

For the first two years of his career, junior defensive end Jessie Rogers was always looking up the depth chart at Kareem Martin. With Martin off to the Arizona Cardinals, Rogers steps into a more prominent role on the Tar Heel defense. Actually, Rogers is stepping into two roles, as he’s being asked to play both defensive tackle and defensive end, depending on the situation. (GoHeels.com)

One Thing to Watch: Liberty

Carolina’s secondary will be tested Saturday by a veteran quarterback and a talented group of wide receivers. Liberty junior Josh Woodrum led the Big South conference in passing yards and touchdowns a year ago and was one of the nation’s most efficient passers. Woodrum led the Flames to a 5-0 start, and the team finished 8-4 with a share of the Big South championship. (GoHeels.com)

Training Days

They’re in the huddle. They’re on the sideline. They’re in the dugout, by the pool, or at the track. Athletic trainers are ready to attend to the medical needs of Tar Heel student-athletes. And though you might only see them on game days, the work of the athletic trainers at Carolina goes well beyond taping ankles and icing elbows. (GoHeels.com)

Elijah Hood could be big for Tar Heels' backfield

Being on the wrong side of a blow from UNC freshman running back Elijah Hood is not a pleasant experience. “Hood is like a bull in a china closet,” Larry Fedora said. “He’s 225 pounds, he’s got great speed and he likes to run into things. When he breaks through, he’s not looking to avoid contact. He’s looking for something to run into — our team, their team, it doesn’t matter. He just wants something to hit.” (ESPN.com)

Jettisoned by Bears, rejuvenated Peppers taking Lambeau Leap of faith

Julius Peppers didn’t want to end his NFL career on a tormenting note, wondering, “What if?” Thanks to the Green Bay Packers, he doesn’t have to. After 12 seasons as one of the top defensive lineman of his generation, Peppers is getting the chance to reinvent himself. He had toyed with shifting to outside linebacker in the past, but fate -- and an admitted touch of self-doubt -- kept him at defensive end. (FOX Sports)
