UNC’s path to making a New Year’s Six Bowl Game

Last season, North Carolina finished as the highest ranked team not to play in a New Year’s Six bowl game. Thanks to bowl tie ins, UNC got jumped over by Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, and the highest ranked Group of Five team, Houston. In 2016, there’s a chance UNC could rack up wins and get themselves back in that conversation again. (Tar Heel Blog)

Statement from the family of Caleb Henderson

The following is a statement Caleb Henderson's family released to THI on Saturday regarding the sophomore quarterback's decision to leave the program: "Our son, Caleb, left the University of North Carolina last evening. He is very grateful for the 2 years he spent there as a student athlete. He would like to especially thank his coaches and teammates." (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Report: UNC QB Caleb Henderson to transfer

North Carolina quarterback Caleb Henderson is transferring, according to a report by TarHeelIllustrated.com. Henderson entered preseason camp in a competition for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart.

Pittsburgh Steelers sign QB Bryn Renner

During the 2015 preseason, Renner completed 43 of 65 pass attempts for 409 yards with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. During his college career at UNC, Renner competed 67% of his pass attempts for 8,221 yards with 64 touchdowns. (Steelers Depot)

Tar Heels emphasize offensive line versatility

A starter from day one on North Carolina's football team, Caleb Peterson has played thousands of snaps at left guard and stands a good chance to move on to the NFL. Still, sliding over just a few feet to the right side of the offensive line can completely change the perspective for the 6-5, 300-pound senior. (Greensboro News & Record)

Rams DE Robert Quinn leaves Rio 'proud' of sister

Robert Quinn was back with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, running through drills after spending the last three days in Rio to watch his sister compete in the Olympics. Quinn watched his 19-year-old sister, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn, advance to the semifinals of the 100-meter hurdles and come up short of the gold-medal race in heartbreaking fashion. (ESPN.com)

Bill & Vince Dooley fought for each other

When you peruse the football resume of Bill Dooley, you become linked with a number of highlights which resulted from Bill being exactly what he was. A fundamentally oriented coach who had an ability to communicate and develop rapport with those who played for him. (Dawg Nation)

Video: High Expectations for Mack Hollins

Taylor Vippolis talks about what makes North Carolina wide receiver Mack Hollins so special and expectations extremely high this season. View Video...

North Carolina Owns Duke's Home Turf...Literally

Beware, North Carolina student-athletes. You’re on a University of North Carolina field in Chapel Hill, but you may be walking on enemy turf, literally. Casey Carrick chuckled while semi-reluctantly spilling the beans that he, the Director of Athletic Grounds and Turf Management at the University of North Carolina, uses Duke's tainted turf for UNC fields.

Elijah Hood: Star, Scholar, (Eagle) Scout

There are never enough good things to say about Elijah Hood. I have actually never heard a bad word spoken about the man in the three years he has played at UNC and the four years he played at Charlotte Catholic High School. Usually the first thing coaches say about Hood off the field is that he was an Eagle Scout. It stands out. It's note-worthy. (Carolina Blue)

THI Staff Picks: Favorite All-Time UNC Football Uniform

North Carolina’s football uniforms have gone through a lot of changes in recent years, from Butch Davis ushering in the dark blue pants to the black helmets (and uniforms) and chrome helmets in the Larry Fedora era. So, with so many changes, it only seemed right for THI’s staff to offer our take on our favorite uniforms the Tar Heels have worn. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Turner's Take: Snug As A Bug

Johnathan 'Bug' Howard doesn't like it when people assume he's a basketball player, but at 6'5" and 220 pounds, well, he looks like one. That frame and those sure hands have played a vital role in the Tar Heel football offense over the past three seasons, and Howard has one more year to continue to make an impact. (GoHeels.com)

Georgia coach Kirby Smart has optimistic take on Nick Chubb's status for UNC

Kirby Smart isn’t ready to say star running back Nick Chubb will be ready for Georgia’s opener against North Carolina on September 3, but it seems as if he isn't far from reaching that point. “It’s pointing in that direction,” Smart said when asked if Chubb will be back for the Tar Heels. (Dawgs247)

UNC’s defensive line has the depth to compete in 2016

The first 11 games of 2015 saw an overall turnaround for the UNC defense. Unfortunately, Carolina fell apart down the stretch allowing 1,272 rushing yards in the final three games. Baylor, of course, was responsible for 645 of those yards. Despite the end of 2015, UNC has enough depth to expect their best performance in years on the defensive line. (Tar Heel Blog)

Little Separation In Key Position Battles

The two position battles that have generated the most chatter during fall camp have been as Mitch Trubisky’s backup at quarterback and the starting right guard spot. And 14 practices in, it appears little if anything has been settled since camp began. That’s not all a bad thing, though. Separation is desired, but coaches love competition. (Tar Heel Illustrated)
