Arizona Cardinals guard Jonathan Cooper ‘obviously not’ playing as well as he needs to

This was supposed to be Jonathan Cooper’s breakout season, with the third-year pro finally making good on the potential that led the Arizona Cardinals to pick him seventh overall in the 2013 NFL Draft. The broken leg that cost him his rookie season was a distant memory, and the wrist injury that ended his 2014 campaign just as it seemed to be getting started was no longer a problem, either.

Seth Littrell or: How I Taught My Family To Stop Worrying and Love their Coach

“We were very happy at UNC and absolutely loved our time in Chapel Hill. It took a special place to get us to leave,” former UNC offensive coordinator Seth Littrell said. “When this job came open I knew without a doubt I wanted it.

Ranking the bowls 1-40 (excluding the national championship)

6. Russell Athletic Bowl (Dec. 29, Orlando) — North Carolina (11-2) vs. Baylor (9-3) This game has the potential to be a lot of fun if Baylor can find a worthwhile quarterback. The Bears lead the nation averaging 48 points per game and the Tar Heels average 40.9 points per game. Both of these teams missed out on CFP and NY6 spots, so while points are possible, motivation might be lacking. (Yahoo! Sports)
