UNC RB Elijah Hood’s Tactical Approach

The football field is like a battlefield, at least according to UNC running back Elijah Hood. After grueling weight room sessions throughout the offseason, Hood liked to curl up with a good book. That book just so happened to be The Art of War. “It gives you some instruction on tactical things that help you when you’re going into a battle-like mentality,” Hood told reporters on Friday.

Tar Heel Fans Kick Off Fall With Meet The Heels

Young Rondy Bryant II was just one of the excited Tar Heel fans Saturday afternoon at Eddie Smith Field House for the annual Meet The Heels event.

Tar Heels' record-setting offense ready to roll again

Mack Hollins looks back at what UNC's high-scoring offense did last year and thinks the Tar Heels can do even more. That would be quite a feat, too, considering the Tar Heels put up totals never seen before in the program's century-plus history "If you're not getting better then you're getting worse," the receiver said Saturday on the team's preseason photo day.

UNC's Football Roster Rebuilt

Larry Fedora accepted North Carolina’s head coaching position in December 2011 well aware of the scholarship reductions in his program’s immediate future.

ICTV: Mack Hollins--Snakes Alive!

Mack Hollins is one of UNC's senior leaders on the field. He sets an example for others with his words and his actions. Away from the field, he has what coach Larry Fedora calls some unusual interests. Saturday, Hollins showed up on the field for photo day with two snakes in tow and shared them with his teammates and the media members present. (Inside Carolina)

UNC's new secret weapon?

The secret is out. UNC has a 27-year-old freshman punter from Australia. His name: Tom Sheldon. His game: We don't know. Not much has been said about what Sheldon will bring in year one of his life in the United States and at UNC. First he has to learn the basics of American football and what goes into the punting game. (Carolina Blue)

Introducing Tom Sheldon, UNC’s new Australian punter

When UNC opened Fall Camp on Friday, there was a new face on the practice field: 27-year-old Australian punter Tom Sheldon. A former Aussie Rules Football player, Sheldon only very recently arrived in the United States. How awesome is it that he’s 27, and technically a freshman? He’s like the Australian Chris Weinke of punters. (Tar Heel Blog)

North Carolina preseason camp: Position battles to watch

With its season-opening showdown against Georgia four weeks away, North Carolina opened preseason camp on Friday. The Tar Heels will be a Top-25 team when they square off with the Bulldogs on Sept. 3, but before they step into that matchup, they’ll have to resolve a few position battles. Here are three areas to watch as UNC prepares for its 2016 season: (Today's U)

Quinshad Davis is turning some heads at Lions camp

Quinshad Davis was one of Detroit's worst players during OTAs and minicamp. And he has been one of the team's most improved players in training camp. He's catapulted himself into the discussion for a spot on the practice squad, and if he continues his ascent, particularly in the exhibitions, could work his way onto the periphery of the 53-man roster.

Detroit Lions' Eric Ebron carted off Ford Field with leg injury

The Detroit Lions suffered a potentially devastating injury in their annual mock game today when third-year tight end Eric Ebron had to be carted off the field with a lower right leg injury. Ebron, the Lions' No. 1 tight end, spent several minutes on the ground clutching the back of his right leg in the ankle/Achilles area when before a cart came to take him off the field.

Does UNC boast the best cornerback duo in college football?

There have been many great duos in pop culture and sports: Tom and Jerry, Batman and Robin, Jordan and Pippen, and now M. J. Stewart and Des Lawrence. I know, it’s sacrilege to put them in the same breath as Tom and Jerry but let’s do it. These are two of the best corners in the country, forming possibly the best cornerback duo in the country.

UNC senior defensive end Mikey Bart is entering his final season at UNC, and year two as the power end starter for the Tar Heels. CarolinaBlue spoke with the 6-3, 270-pound Georgia native following Friday's practice. "Our D-line is real athletic this year. We got Dajaun Drennon. We are getting Jalen Dalton into the mix. I think we are moving Nazair Jones to nose tackle." (Carolina Blue)
