ACC Coaches Talk Anonymously About Conference Foes for 2015

On North Carolina: “They’re going to be prolific offensively with everybody coming back. They have great skilled athletes all over the field, and the offensive system they run fits their personnel." "They go as fast as Clemson, if not faster, and they’ve probably got the deepest group of receivers in the league. They’ve got four or five guys who could go for 100 yards on a given day.” (Athlon Sports)

Countdown UNC's 10 Best Players: #7 T.J. Logan

Now a junior, T.J. Logan is now the first string running back and should be prepared to carry a heavier load. Larry Fedora prefers the running backs to share carries, but I don’t think he wants his quarterback leading the team in rushing yards for three consecutive seasons. This is the year for Logan to step up and prove why he was rated as a 4-star back. (Keeping It Heel)

Are you ready for some football? State ACC teams are, as camps prepare to begin

WR Hakeem Nicks Wants to Bounce Back with Titans

Titans receiver Hakeem Nicks has a Super Bowl ring and over 5,000 receiving yards in his six-year NFL career. So when he popped up after making a sideline catch on Saturday and told a defender he was going to need some help covering him, he didn’t catch any flak. It came during his best practice as a Titan. The reality is Nicks can’t relax. He’s in a fight to make the roster. (Tennessee Titans)

Former Tar Heel Boston matured, looking to improve in Panthers secondary

Tre Boston's week began with what he described as one of the top five most nervous moments of his entire life, and it had nothing to do with training camp in Spartanburg. On Monday, the former University of North Carolina Tar Heel took a knee, and proposed to his long-time girlfriend Cierra Perry, who is from Henderson, N.C. So, how'd he go about popping the question? (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC football looks to rise above mediocrity

UNC had the third-best scoring offense in the ACC with 33.2 points per game. UNC’s passing offense ranked second in the league. But the Tar Heels couldn’t really run the ball, and that defense of theirs literally wasn’t hitting on much. So fans are left to wonder if the Tar Heels who report to training camp Sunday will go into the first day of fall practices Monday getting ready for another six-win season. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Q&A with Larry Fedora, Part V

You didn’t sign up for any of this (NCAA investigation)? How have you stayed sane knowing it’s stuff that happened before you got here? Larry Fedora: "What are you going to do? Think about it if you’re in my shoes are you going to lay around and cry about it? You really don’t have a lot of control over it. Again, it’s establishing a vision of where you want the program to go and being positive." (Inside Carolina)

Inside The Locker Room: Switzer's Steadfastness

This is the Switz I’ve come to know. The one to leave the facilities after everyone just to go on the ball machine more. The one who in between classes watches whatever film he can get his hands on. The one who will do an extra rep in the weight room because he knows his opponent won’t. When we go out in the fall, Ryan Switzer practices as if he was playing for the ACC Championship every time.
