Wednesday Larry Fedora Quotes

UNC head coach Larry Fedora spoke with reporters Wednesday for his weekly ACC teleconference. “We're getting in some practices this week, working with a lot of our young guys, working on the fundamentals of the game, trying to get better in all three phases of the game as we go into the week, and then at the end of the week we'll start getting ready for Pitt.” (Inside Carolina)

UNC Searching for the Ignition Switch

North Carolina not only endured another slow start in South Florida, but failed to muster much offense at all in its 47-20 loss to Miami. The Tar Heels’ bye week focus includes finding a rhythm off the opening kick for their stretch run. UNC’s offense has been shut out twice and held to a field goal a third time in the first half this season. (Inside Carolina)

Carolina Rundown: November 5

It'll require at least a 2-1 finish to become bowl eligible, and this projection thinks UNC will do it and then head to St. Pete. Tyler Hansbrough had 12 points and seven rebounds off the bench for Toronto. Marvin Williams had nine points and five rebounds, and P.J. Hairston scored his first NBA basket. Eight points for Wayne Ellington, while Ed Davis grabbed nine rebounds. (GoHeels.com)

My Carolina Experience: Mike Morton

After seven years in the NFL and earning a Super Bowl ring, Mike Morton returned to UNC to earn his dental degree. "Making the transition from the NFL to the dental office was difficult. The discipline I learned as an athlete made it much easier to go back and complete dental school. I feel being a student-athlete at Carolina helped prepare me to face difficult situations I've come across them later in life." (GoHeels.com)

UNC football practice notes Nov. 4

After a tough 47-20 loss to Miami last weekend, North Carolina doesn’t play again until Nov. 15 against Pittsburgh. With the bye week, UNC has a chance to regroup in an effort to win at least two out of its final three games and become bowl eligible for the second consecutive season. With Romar Morris out against Pittsburgh, Khris Francis stands to get more playing time at running back. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels In The NFL – Week Nine

It's been a rough start to Jonathan Cooper's NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals, but he could be looking at some more playing time over the course of the second half of the season. Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said that Cooper has been improving and that head coach Bruce Arians could be looking to get Cooper on the field more often. (GoHeels.com)

UNC LB Cayson Collins expanding role, production

North Carolina true freshman Cayson Collins is becoming a name all Tar Heel fans should know. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker has become an impact player for UNC as his role on the defense has increased in recent weeks. Collins, a Charlotte native, has played in all nine games in some capacity. He has nine solo tackles, 10 assisted tackles for 19 total. (Carolina Blue)

Carolina Rundown: November 4

Reggie Bullock had 12 points in his first action of the season, and the Clippers might be ready to give him more playing time. Nine points and 12 assists for Ty Lawson, but Denver lost. Vince Carter had nine points off the bench in a Memphis win. Tyler Zeller had six points in eight minutes. Brandan Wright had six points and six rebounds. (GoHeels.com)

Darian Durant showing signs of progress

Quarterback Darian Durant was out on the field throwing the ball for the first time for all to see since he injured his elbow in the Banjo Bowl in September. It was a positive sign for the Riders as they returned to practice on Monday after their bye-week. (News Talk 980 CJME)

UNC Suspends Romar Morris For Game Against Pittsburgh

University of North Carolina tailback Romar Morris has been suspended for UNC’s next game against Pittsburgh on Nov. 15 for a violation of team rules, head coach Larry Fedora announced Monday. “We hold our players accountable for their actions and when a player makes a poor decision, he must face the consequences,” said head coach Larry Fedora.

UNC running back Romar Morris charged with DWI

UNC running back Romar Morris was arrested early Sunday morning in Chapel Hill and charged with impaired driving DWI, a misdemeanor. Morris, 22, was arrested at 4:12 a.m. on Misty Woods Circle. He was booked at the Chapel Hill Police Department, presented to a magistrate and then released “to a sober person” at 5:30 a.m. on a written promise to appear in court, according to the arrest report. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Art’s Angle: Luck Running Out?

With what was supposed to be a bevy of fast, talented running backs, the Tar Heels were turned into what Larry Fedora himself lamented as “one-dimensional.” And unless The Hat uses the forthcoming bye week to restore the second and third dimensions to his team, it will have to be lucky again to win another game. (Chapelboro.com)

Postgame Chalkboard from UNC-Miami

Miami’s huge offensive line and 260-pound tight ends bullied the UNC defensive front, while gap control problems and poor angles continued to plague the defense as the Miami backs ran wild. Despite an outstanding strip sack by UNC end Mikey Bart returned for a score by Cayson Collins, the outcome of this game was never in doubt as the Heels were simply dominated from start to finish. (Inside Carolina)

Extra Points: Reboot For Homestretch

The post-game mental tug-of-war is always a balance between how badly did one team play versus how good did the opponent operate, and Saturday's story has to pay proper homage to Miami coach Al Golden and his team. The Tar Heels have not seen before nor will they see later this month anyone as good as Duke Johnson at tailback and Denzel Perryman at linebacker (GoHeels.com)
