Rameses becomes a father to triplets

Rameses has once again become more than UNC’s iconic living mascot — he has also become a father. About 13 days ago, a living tradition was continued with the birth of triplet baby rams. All three lambs were born at Hogan’s Magnolia View Farm located on Old N.C. 86. The Hogan family has volunteered to take care of the Rameses lineage since the mascot’s inception. (Daily Tar Heel)

New proposal pushes NCAA to change credit hour requirement for athletes

One of the toughest opponents student-athletes face is how to split time between their schoolwork and their team. But Ryan McKee, an offensive assistant coach for UNC’s football team, and Steven King, a journalism professor, think they have a plan.

Prince, and true freshman January enrollee Bentley Spain.

UNC Defense Building Depth

North Carolina completed its spring open scrimmage schedule on Friday, and for the first time during the Larry Fedora era, defensive quantity can finally be viewed as a positive attribute. For the first time in recent memory, UNC’s defense is close to being able to fill out a complete three-deep with its roster, and that’s not even including the freshmen who will arrive for summer school in a few months.

UNC Football Post-Greensboro Scrimmage Quotes

Desmond Lawrence on this year's team: "I think there is more camaraderie. I think there are a lot of guys that want to be leaders. A lot of guys know that some of the things we did last year are not acceptable this year. Just putting our heads down. I think the defense is a lot faster, the offense is a lot faster. What we are about is smart, fast, and physical. Coach Fedora says it everyday." (Carolina Blue)

Connor Barth Makes His Return as Bucs Open Workouts

When the Tampa Bay Bucs open offseason workouts, there will be a lot of new faces for the team to learn. But the team will be glad that one familiar face will be returning. Kicker Connor Barth, who missed the 2013 season with an injury to his Achilles, said he is 100 percent and ready to go. "I'm starting to feel that strength come back and that power," Barth said.

Marquise Williams takes center stage

Just a year ago, practice was a slog for Marquise Williams, but he’s a different man now, and this is a different team. It’s his team, he said, even if his coach hasn’t made that distinction official. In the midst of a quarterback competition Larry Fedora still insists is too close to call, Williams is enjoying every moment of the battle. He’s not simply interested in winning the job. He wants to own the team. (ESPN.com)
