ACC Week 5 Preview and Predictions

UNC at Clemson 7 p.m., ESPNU: The Tar Heels will be tested again on defense this week. The Tigers average 37 points per game. Another concern for UNC is the offensive line, which may not have guard Landon Turner or tackle Jon Heck in the lineup due to injuries. That’s bad news against Clemson’s defensive front, which has registered 10 sacks and 29 tackles for a loss in 2014. (Athlon Sports)

Tar Heels Ready To Move Ahead To Clemson

You can't allow one game to define an entire team, North Carolina football head coach Larry Fedora said at Wednesday's practice.

Swinney speaks well of Koenning, but they do have a history

Dabo Swinney has had nothing but good things to say about Vic Koenning in the run-up to Clemson’s game Saturday against North Carolina.

Julius Peppers is a stand-up guy in Green Bay

The differences between Chicago and Green Bay would seem obvious. One is a world-renowned metropolis; the other, far from it. Yet, Julius Peppers finds similar comforts. “I lived in Highland Park,” Peppers said. “Pretty much, you put a football stadium in Highland Park and you got Green Bay right there. But from a football standpoint, Peppers might as well be on Mars. (Chicago Sun-Times)

Art’s Angle: Great Coach? Not So Fast

So let’s talk about what we DO know, while some segment of Tar Heel Nation continues to freak out over Saturday’s 70-41 embarrassment at East Carolina.

Before practice Wednesday afternoon, North Carolina defensive coordinator Vic Koenning thought back to the worst times in his coaching career. After Saturday’s 70-41 loss to East Carolina, Koenning realized that a loss hadn’t felt this bad since his time with Wyoming, when he was the head coach from 2000-02. (Daily Tar Heel)

Vic Koenning Doesn't Look Like He's Having Very Much Fun

Vic Koenning says the last time he spent this much time in practice working on "little details" was at Wyoming in the late 90s. There are certain aspects of UNC's defensive play Koenning says players should just know how to do but this group hasn't grasped them. The reason for this isn't clear but the coaching staff is emphasizing basic elements Koenning believes should be second nature (Tar Heel Blog)
