No Looking Ahead For Fedora, Tar Heels

The Georgia Tech game is more than a week away, and the Tar Heels have an opponent to deal with in between. But with Delaware an FCS member and not expected to challenge the Tar Heels this Saturday at Kenan Stadium, human nature suggests there might be a temptation for the coaching staff to insert some Georgia Tech prep into this week's work to get a jump-start on readying to take on the unique Yellow Jackets.

UNC football prepares for Delaware with Georgia Tech looming

One game at a time. It’s one of the oldest sports mantras. Look beyond a weaker opponent, and they just might make you pay.But North Carolina has undermined that rule to a degree. After thrashing Illinois 48-14 on Saturday, UNC faces Football Championship Subdivision opponent Delaware on Saturday in its final nonconference matchup of the season. But beyond Delaware looms No. 20 Georgia Tech with its lethal triple-option offense. (Daily Tar Heel)

Bug Howard Has an Idea to Boost Attendance

Yeah, this should go well not to mention be tossed around by a certain group of red clad rival fans. Probably the more telling aspect of this tweet is the players noticing the poor attendance and making some noise about it. It certainly sucks for them to play in front of empty seats and I can't imagine it does much for recruiting either. (Tar Heel Blog)

Video: Colts induct Jeff Saturday into Ring of Honor

Former Colts center Jeff Saturday was inducted into the team's "Ring of Honor" Monday night. The six-time Pro Bowler played 13 seasons for the Colts, including during the team's Super Bowl win. Saturday's return to Indianapolis for the ceremony proved an emotional one as his name joined Marvin Harrison, Tony Dungy and others as a permanent fixture in Lucas Oil Stadium. (The Indy Channel)

Small crowds raise attendance questions for UNC football

Anyone who watched North Carolina dominate Illinois on ESPN2 Saturday probably noticed one thing: a stunningly small crowd at Kenan Stadium. The Tar Heels posted a 48-14 drubbing of the Illini, the largest margin of victory over a team from a top five conference since 2010. Carolina beat Virginia 44-10 Oct. 16, 2010. (WNCN)

Giovani Bernard inspired by playoff fumble against Chargers

The same feelings of shame and anger that bubbled inside him during a Cincinnati Bengals playoff game nearly two years ago clouded Giovani Bernard's mind at times last week. But when they did this time around, they served as game-week motivation as he prepared for a grudge match against the team that took advantage of one of his biggest career miscues, turning it into a momentum-turning instant in a playoff win that should have been his team's.

Vikings corner Jabari Price back from suspension

Jabari Price suspected it would be tough to watch the Vikings play during his two-game suspension, and it was. The Minnesota cornerback was reinstated to the 53-man roster Monday after being suspended for violating the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. "Very tough," he said. "I never in my life had to sit out a game because of disciplinary action. That will never happen again." (St. Paul Pioneer Press)

Weekly Report Card: Illinois

Carolina submitted an excellent performance at home on Saturday with a 48-14 blowout win over Illinois. UNC did well in almost every facet of the game with their only weakness being the lack of a pass rush. The Heels will face stiffer opposition in conference play, but this game was an encouraging performance. On to the Grades: (Tar Heel Blog)

Kick-starting confidence has UNC’s Weiler on target

Without his mind and body right last season, Nick Weiler’s strong right leg was like a Ferrari that couldn’t kick into a higher gear. How can a kicker who was unable to make a field-goal attempt beyond 23 yards a year ago make all five attempts this year, all at least 32 yards long, including two 48-yarders and a 47-yarder? He’s gone from a kicker who couldn’t keep his starting job a year ago to one of the nation’s best so far this season. (Raleigh & Company)

Catching up with former Colts center Jeff Saturday in his new world (video)

Dave Furst caught up with Saturday in Bristol, Connecticut, where the next chapter of his career continues as an analyst at ESPN. (The Indy Channel)

Hens hoping to 'step up' to challenge of UNC

University of Delaware head football coach Dave Brock is hoping his offense cuts down on 'self-inflicted mistakes' as they move up a level to battle ACC member North Carolina this Saturday. The Hens battled hard but fell 28-21 at Villanova Saturday in a game they led 21-20 in the 4th quarter. Brock said his defense's inability to get off the field on 4th down ended up being critical in the loss. (WDEL.com)
