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.

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)

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.

Video: UNC Receivers do the Cha-Cha Slide at practice

Having known UNC receivers coach Gunter Brewer for several years, I can attest that he truly is one of the good guys in the profession. With all that said, there still was a belief in some coaches minds that Brewer had a secret up his sleeve that helped players become so enamored with coach Brew. Today that secret has been revealed.

Rosa Parks, Mary Willingham, and UNC Football

I have assembled you all here today to finally, and officially, address my Rosa Parks essay that has underwent such wicked scrutiny from media outlets across the nation over the past few weeks.
