Jonathan Cooper shows resiliency in return to game action for Arizona Cardinals

On the second play from scrimmage in his first game action since breaking a leg in last year's preseason, Arizona Cardinals guard Jonathan Cooper got beat by Texans Pro Bowler J.J. Watt for a sack. Welcome back to the NFL? "Definitely not welcome back," Cooper said of the play that happened in Arizona's 32-0 win. (Arizona Sports)

UNC ranked 25th among top college football coaching jobs

Clay Travis of Outkick The Coverage recently published his top 25 list of the best coaching jobs in college football. It’s no surprise that a lot of big name programs made the list, with the Florida Gators being the number one job. But Travis included the North Carolina Tar Heels on the list who ranked at number 25.

Needed: A Few Good Men

With senior defensive tackle Ethan Farmer's status for the season still uncertain, as of now, none of the 10 Tar Heels battling to sort out the defensive line rotation have ever started a game up front in college. Only sophomore Mikey Bart has started a game, and that was twice last fall at bandit. Now he's a defensive end. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Phil Steele updates UNC bowl projection

College Football expert Phil Steele has released an updated bowl projection list and one difference includes the North Carolina Tar Heels. Steele has the Tar Heels playing Auburn in the Orange Bowl on December 31. The Tar Heels will take up the ACC spot that is guaranteed in the Orange Bowl, while Auburn has the spot reserved for the Big Ten, SEC or Notre Dame. (Keeping It Heel)

Extra Points: Snapshots From Scrimmage

On a wet field Saturday with intermittent rain, Romar Morris stood out for his running ability, squirting several long runs and crossing the goal line twice. It's no secret that running back is one of the Tar Heels' deepest positions, and one of the 2014 season story lines will be to see how head coach Larry Fedora, running backs coach Larry Porter and offensive coordinator Seth Littrell can involve them all.

UNC's Defensive Line Banking on Depth

North Carolina is counting on its defensive line’s depth to overshadow the lack of a brand name and recent attrition. Robert Quinn. Quinton Coples. Sylvester Williams. Kareem Martin. Those recent Tar Heel defensive linemen will be playing on Sundays this fall. The names the casual fan will hear at Kenan Stadium on Saturdays won’t roll off the tongue with such familiarity.

T.J. Yates makes a fine debut for the Falcons

Despite having just 12 practices with the Falcons, T.J. Yates replaced Matt Ryan as the second-team quarterback against the Miami Dolphins on Friday night at the Georgia Dome. Yates played five possessions and led the offense to a field goal late in the second quarter. Overall, he completed 7 of 16 passes for 127 yards. He also had two rushes for 8 yards. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Dominique Green No Longer Green

Dominique Green knows his role on North Carolina's defense. The sophomore understands the intricacies of his playbook better than he did a year ago. He gets that his responsibilities have grown and that even though he's the youngest member of the safety group with any playing experience, he's expected to be a leader in the backfield.

College Football Talk Preseason Top 25: No. 23 North Carolina

North Carolina can be a pretty good team if everything is working in sync right from the start. That has been a problem for Fedora’s Tar Heels since he arrived in Chapel Hill. North Carolina can be a streaky team it seems, but in a division that could be wide open for the taking, a slow start or a lull somewhere in the middle of the year is not going to have a good result.

UNC football to host Delaware in 2015

Delaware will play North Carolina in football during the 2015 football season, Delaware athletic director Eric Ziady said Friday. The game against the Tar Heels on Sept. 26 in Chapel Hill is one of two schedule additions against Atlantic Coast Conference schools announced by Delaware. The Blue Hens will also visit North Carolina State in Raleigh on Sept. 5, 2020. (Delaware Online)

UNC Football's Blur Points Designed for Accountability

North Carolina associate head coach for defense Vic Koenning has created a “blur points” program designed to promote individual consistency across the board on his side of the ball. The premise is relatively simple. Following each practice, the defensive players are awarded anywhere from one (poor) to five (all out) blur points. Koenning described the rankings as “five being a great level and one not so great.” (Inside Carolina)

Video: UNC Football Position Breakdown - Defensive Line

UNC defensive line coach Keith Gilmore goes in-depth on the players he expects to make an impact at defensive tackle and defensive end for the Tar Heels. View Video...

Turner's Take: Justin Time

One candidate to be an impact player on the defensive line is Justin Thomason. The junior defensive tackle from McDonough, Ga. (outside of Atlanta) is quiet and unassuming, something of a gentle giant off the field. In fact, he’s a bit like Kareem Martin in that manner. Thomason has seen spot duty through his first two seasons and now has an opportunity to start at defensive tackle. (GoHeels.com)

Falcons to see what they have in QB T.J. Yates

The Atlanta Falcons traded for quarterback T.J. Yates in June with hopes of solidifying the backup quarterback position behind Matt Ryan. It's been hard to determine Yates' value so far just based on training camp practices. He is still working on his timing with the receivers. But Yates should see his share of time during Friday night's exhibition against the Miami Dolphins. (ESPN.com)
