Coach Kap: "We have to be better"

UNC offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic: How did the scrimmage go on Sunday? "We had a good day yesterday with the scrimmage. Physically and mentally we were really strong. The guys came out with a purpose and a mentality, I think that shows some maturity in understanding the task at hand...I have been really impressed with the young guys that have joined the team." (Carolina Blue)

The fantastic problem of where to put Giovani Bernard

The emergence of Jeremy Hill has been fun to witness for Cincinnati Bengals fans. Last year, the Bengals running back rushed for 1,124 yards on 222 carries. He led not only all rookies, but all running backs in yards gained on the ground in the second half of the 2014 season. However, his emergence leaves Giovani Bernard, another superb talent on the Bengals' offense, with new questions – the best kind of questions a team can have. (Cincy Jungle)

UNC Training Camp: Receivers Expected to be Loud–On and Off the Field

Fresh off its first full-team scrimmage on Sunday, the UNC football team resumed training camp Monday morning with a clearer picture starting to develop of this year’s Tar Heel roster. And if there’s one thing that can be said for certain about this year’s team just six days into practice–it’s that the deep stable of wide receivers will be making noise in many different ways.

Marquise Williams: "I love to play this game"

UNC quarterback Marquise Williams on how the team has looked so far in camp? "Its going great, both on offense and defense. The defense looks tremendous with the new scheme and Coach Chizik coming in and changing things up, those guys are looking confident. The offense is running the ball well which opens up the passing. Its been good, but we are taking it day by day to get better." (Carolina Blue)

UNC receiver Damien Washington serves as leader at his position

No drops. As the North Carolina football team's practice wound down Monday afternoon, receivers coach Gunter Brewer had one more task for his positional group: 24 catches in a row. The task wouldn’t be too tall for the sure hands of UNC's receivers. Still, as the 24th pass left Brewer’s hand, all eyes were on Damien Washington to finish practice with a snag. And the senior delivered. (Daily Tar Heel)

ICTV: All Eyes On Marquise

Inside Carolina pointed its camera exclusively on North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams at a recent practice to watch him work on his mechanics. Williams has returned to full health following offseason hip surgery and the benefits should result in better consistency for UNC's record-setting quarterback. “I think it’s been a big difference for him,” quarterbacks coach Keith Heckendorf said. (Inside Carolina)

Countdown To Kickoff: Week 1

As Tar Heel fans everywhere count down the days to the 2015 season opener on September 3 in Charlotte against South Carolina, GoHeels.com is satisfying its football itch with the Countdown to Kickoff campaign. Last November 20, the Tar Heels put together what Larry Fedora called a "complete game" in routing Duke, 45-20, in Durham before a Thursday night national TV audience. (GoHeels.com)

Defensive Line Development For UNC

How's this for a challenge: A team that struggled mightily a year ago employing a defensive scheme that required just three true down linemen now hopes to trust three times that contingent by Sept. 3. Furthermore, they, meaning the Tar Heels, are looking to do this using two true freshmen and a redshirt one, a true sophomore, two redshirt sophomores and a junior playing his third position in as many seasons.

Quinshad Davis poised to dazzle in ‘freak’ show

Bug Howard made it sound like North Carolina senior Quinshad Davis is other-worldly as a wide receiver. “Oh, he’s a freak, baby!” Howard said Monday after Day 8 of UNC’s training camp. Davis had metal rods inserted in his legs during the offseason, so now it’s like he’s a freak-a-zoid, Howard hinted. “He’s got new legs,” Howard said. (Durham Herald-Sun)

ICTV: Fedora Impressed By Defensive Line

When Larry Fedora was asked after practice on Monday about which single defensive position group has stood out to him during camp, the North Carolina head coach made a somewhat surprising choice. "The guys that have probably impressed the most would be the D-line," Fedora said. "The D-line as a group has probably impressed the most the first six days of practice." (Inside Carolina)

Monday Larry Fedora Post-Practice Quotes

Larry Fedora on the first day scrimmage: It was a pretty typical scrimmage in that there were some great things that happened and there were some catastrophic things that happened. The great thing is that all the catastrophic and bad things that happened are all correctable. The good thing is that it is the first scrimmage and we have another practice tomorrow. The effort was tremendous. (Carolina Blue)

Chansky’s Notebook: A Fair Call by the Coach

Larry Fedora is a stand up guy. Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight! I love Larry Fedora being UNC’s football coach, and have thought that since an old friend Fedora used to work for said he was a straight shooter, forward thinker and a no B.S. guy. He wants to win but wants to do it the right way. Yet he’s competitive and no fool. (Chapelboro.com)
