Tar Heels Wrap Up Spring Ball

UNC’s offense rallied for a 74-70 victory over the defense using an unorthodox scoring approach in Saturday’s Spring Game.

Despite the offense’s win, UNC coach Larry Fedora wasn’t willing to give either side of the ball an edge. (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels aim to build on defensive turnaround from 2015

The Tar Heels had several young players getting key reps during the spring, including January enrollees Jonathan Smith at linebacker, and defensive backs Myles Wolfolk and Myles Dorn. That trio combined for 14 tackles during Saturday's spring game that put the offense and defense against each other in a scoring system based on points awarded on outcomes for each play.

Spring Football Game: What To Look For

North Carolina will hold its annual spring game Saturday at 3 p.m. at Kenan Stadium. A year ago, the team held a scrimmage at Rocky River High School outside of Charlotte because a new drainage system was being installed underneath the field at Kenan. But it wasn’t an actual spring game, so Saturday’s affair will be interesting in that respect, and also because there are plenty of story lines worthy of noting. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Competition a top priority at UNC spring football game

Whether it’s nothing more than a motivational ploy or actual competition, in Larry Fedora’s eyes, everyone on UNC's roster will be playing for a job during Saturday’s annual Spring Game at Kenan Stadium. “I want every guy on our football team to feel like they earned what they’ve got, that nobody gave them anything,” Fedora said after a recent spring practice.

North Carolina has questions in the trenches as spring practice wraps up

Spring Game Gives Chance for UNC Football’s New Stars to Shine

UNC football coach's wives 'superwomen'

None of them knew what they were getting into. Well, that’s not quite true.

She said yes anyway. (Daily Tar Heel)
