Ravens reserve quarterback Bryn Renner has dealt with injuries, adversity in his career

Bryn Renner is reflective, doesn't complain about the bumpy road his career took and is thoroughly enjoying his experience so far with the Ravens. "I'm so happy to be here, and it's going great so far.. Everything I've been through made me stronger and better.

10. UNC Zaps Georgia Tech: UNC’s most impressive win of the 2014 football season was also its most thrilling. The Tar Heels battled Georgia Tech neck-and-neck for the duration of the mid-October contest. Though UNC took a 35-24 lead into the fourth quarter, Georgia Tech stormed back and eventually went ahead 43-42 with just more than three minutes on the clock. (Carolina Blue)

Long snapper Greg Warren is a rarity on the team being a part of that rich tradition for over a decade. Warren is in his 11th camp with the team this year.

Tar Heels taking a risk with neutral-site opener, but rivals want in

Larry Fedora acknowledges there are inherent risks in opening the football season against an SEC opponent at a neutral site on national television. The North Carolina coach also feels the TV exposure and recruiting impact from playing South Carolina in Charlotte on Sept. 3 offers a potential reward that far outweighs those risks. (Charlotte Observer)

One last go around for Marquise Williams

Any successful college football program usually has an established, solidified talent under center to reach its goals. This season in Chapel Hill, the North Carolina Tar Heels are hoping and counting on senior Marquise Williams. Williams passed for an astonishing 3,068 yards last season. He also led the team in rushing yardage with 788 yards. (New Bern Sun Journal)

Ranking the ACC's non-conference football schedules

10. North Carolina -- South Carolina, North Carolina A&T, Illinois, Delaware: It's the second time in three years the South Carolina-North Carolina game has opened the season, and given the location of those two schools and the neutral site location in Charlotte, that's a pretty good game. There's not much else to speak of on the schedule. The Illini have been a mess lately. (Roanoke Times)

Vikings CB Jabari Price suspended two games

The NFL announced Friday that Vikings cornerback Jabari Price has been suspended for the first two games of the 2015 regular season without pay for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

(Minneapolis Star Tribune)

New-look defense brings new attitude for UNC

The Tar Heels now have four new coaches on the defensive side of the football, including coordinator Gene Chizik. “What Gene brings to the table is one the renewed confidence in those guys, I think is the biggest factor that I’ve seen to this point,” said Fedora. Chizik looked at every defensive play from every game last year. What he saw was a unit that took poor tracking angles and a team that didn’t tackle well. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Malik Simmons Suspended

Malik Simmons's offseason momentum has hit a roadblock. The senior from Lehigh Acres, Fla., who was slated to enter training camp next month in competition for the starting cornerback job, has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities, a team official confirmed on Friday. He was listed on the school's 2015 preseason depth chart tied atop the position with junior Des Lawrence. (Inside Carolina)

Charlotte wants to host more UNC-South Carolina football matchups

The Gamecocks and Tar Heels will open the season Sept. 3 at Bank of America Stadium in a Thursday evening game televised by ESPN. Charlotte Sports Foundation founder Will Webb said he's had discussion with the schools about additional games, including a potential matchup in 2019. Organizers are calling the North Carolina-South Carolina matchup the Belk College Kickoff Game, and Webb would like to make it an annual event. (The State)

College Quarterback Rankings

15. Marquise Williams, North Carolina. Williams has been a bit underrated during his career. Last season, for a solid offense that was overshadowed by a struggling defense, Williams threw for 3,073 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine picks, and he had 193 rushing attempts for 783 yards and 13 touchdowns. Like the rest of the Tar Heels, he's inconsistent, but he could turn into a star if UNC ever realizes its potential. (Sports on Earth)

Audio: Jeff Schoettmer interview

North Carolina linebacker Jeff Schoettmer joined The David Glenn Show on Tuesday, and among the topics discussed were the Dallas native’s family ties to Duke.
