Throughout camp, GoHeels.com will provide news and notes, important links, videos and more updating the team's progress ahead of the 2015 campaign. (GoHeels.com)

Turner: "I am really excited to see what we can do"

Senior offensive guard Landon Turner on the first day of camp: "I am really excited to see what we can do. Its night and day difference from last year as far as attitude and maturity level. Just from everybody but especially my guys. The summer workouts were a lot easier, guys kinda of knew what to expect and we carried a lot of good stuff in from last season, so we are going to build on that." (Carolina Blue)

Larry Fedora Live! Returns Aug. 25

The show can be heard on GoHeels.com and across the state on the Tar Heel Sports Radio Network. (GoHeels.com)

Podcast: Training Camp - First Impressions

Greg Barnes and Buck Sanders share their impressions of the first day of training camp with Tommy Ashley. "On the defensive side of the ball, there was a lot of good energy out there, and some of that has to do with the players listening to a different set of voices on the coaching staff, and they are all putting their best foot forward, because they want playing time," Sanders added.

Marquise Williams vs the Record Book

Senior QB Marquise Williams enters the 2015 season poised to make a further dent into the UNC record book. The combination of Williams' dual-threat capabilities and Larry Fedora's fast paced spread offense has already spawned some gawdy numbers. With at least 12 games left in his college career, Williams has a chance to place his name prominently in the Tar Heel records. (Tar Heel Blog)

Excitement: Key word as UNC football opens training camp

Long before the North Carolina football team took the field for the first training camp practice of the year Monday, Coach Larry Fedora gathered his players and showed them a video the UNC football video department put together as a preview for the upcoming season. Unlike a usual "hype" video, the trailer traded in the big hits and long touchdowns to focus on what the team had done together this offseason. (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC Football shows off new argyle helmet stripe

The Tar Heels are just a little over a month away from kicking off against South Carolina in Charlotte, but any news we get should be exciting. Today the Tar Heels showed off their new helmet design for the upcoming season which features a traditional UNC look. Carolina Football tweeted out a photo of the new Carolina Blue helmet that features a awesome argyle stripe down the helmet. (Keeping It Heel)

Quinshad Davis back at full strength, just not full speed

Quinshad Davis is back to full strength. But as the UNC wide receiver learned Monday on the opening day of the Tar Heels’ preseason football camp, he still has work to do before he’s back to full speed. “It’s a challenge getting back into football shape,” Davis said after his first organized practice since breaking the tibia in his right leg against Rutgers in the Quick Lane Bowl last December. (Wilmington Star News)

Day 1 different for Tar Heels in multiple ways

The way the Tar Heels told it Monday at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, their chemistry experiment is working, because not even knuckleheaded moves by one of their football brethren has diluted the formula they said they discovered after a dud of a 2014 season finally fizzled in Detroit. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Titans' Zach Brown ready to make up for lost time

The first day in pads can be a bit daunting for an NFL player. It’s even more daunting when you haven’t had full contact in almost 11 months and you’re testing how well a torn pectoral muscle has healed. That’s what Titans linebacker Zach Brown was up against on Sunday. And he came through the test just fine. Brown was injured on just the fourth play of the 2014 season. (Nashville Tennessean)

Help us Heel our Giant, Quincy Monk

Please help us Heel our Giant - Quincy Monk, a Tar Heel and New York Giant. After recently suffering a stroke and seemingly making an incredible recovery. The Monk family was hit with another obstacle. The “C” word. Quincy was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma and it is very aggressive. Please find it in your hearts to help one of the best guys we know fight the fight of his life. (Go Fund Me)

Quinshad Davis hopes for only good breaks in 2015

On Monday, Tar Heels' wide receiver Quinshad Davis returned to the field after months rehabilitating a fractured right tibia. If Davis was moving a bit slower than before, quarterback Marquise Williams noticed that his routes were crisp. "He looked great running routes," Williams said. "I told him, 'Quinshad, you're running some of the best routes,' and he said, 'Yeah, I got my legs back under me.'" (WRAL Sports Fan)

Gio Bernard looks to shine no matter when, where

This time last year, Giovani Bernard prepared for a season as primary back carrying the bulk of the load in the running game. Jeremy Hill brought with him second-round potential, but this still would be Bernard's opportunity to play the part of featured back. Midway through the season, he learned exactly what being a feature back in the NFL feels like. It hurts. (Cincinnati Enquirer)

Sylvester Williams draws Broncos coaches' praise

Sylvester Williams recalled the moment that explains how significantly his career has shifted over the past year. At the end of Saturday's practice, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak singled him out in front of the team for his relentless effort. Williams' progress remains central to the defensive line. If the nose tackle reaches his potential it would echo across the front seven. (Denver Post)

Robert Quinn Striving for Improved 2015

Robert Quinn has been dominant since he arrived in the league, though his breakout season was undeniably in 2013 when he set a new franchise mark with 19 sacks. But an underrated aspect of the defensive end’s game may be his ability to create fumbles, at which he continued to excel in 2014. The coaches gave him credit for seven FFs last season, giving him a total of 15 for his career. (St. Louis Rams)
