ACC football to utilize medical observers

Commissioner John Swofford said Monday afternoon that the ACC will have two medical observers in the press box of each football game this fall to monitor player safety. The rule will be in place for all games involving an ACC team, and an observer will travel with his/her specific team. An observer will not have the ability to stop a game but will have direct contact to the sideline. (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels QB learning from best

North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams walked around in a dream state at last weekend’s Manning Passing Academy at Nicholls State University. As a second-year counselor, Williams knew the routine and what to expect in preparing to teach the 1,200 campers passing drills, but getting to work with Peyton and Eli Manning is a dream come true for the senior from Charlotte, N.C.

Five things to discuss on the eve of the ACC Kickoff

The Tar Heels are, for the time being, out from under the NCAA sanctions that contributed to some wildly inconsistent play during Larry Fedora's first three seasons. Poor performances to end the 2014 season had some players criticizing the team's effort. With NCAA issues still not resolved, and fans growing weary of mediocre results, year four looms as a pivotal year. (Fayetteville Observer)

Documents detail Hawkins' payments in UNC case

Newly unsealed documents in the case of an ex-college football player charged with violating North Carolina's sports agent law suggest he funneled money to multiple Tar Heels players and set up meetings with agents and financial advisers trying to sign them to contracts. Christopher Hawkins was arrested in May for providing former player Robert Quinn thousands of dollars and helping him sell game-used equipment in 2010. (Associated Press)

ACC Kickoff: Team-by-team storylines

Will North Carolina's defense be better? UNC was awful on defense last year, giving up 29 or more points in 10 of 13 games. That’s why coach Larry Fedora brought in former Auburn coach Gene Chizik as the new defensive coordinator (the rest of the defensive staff is new, too). If the defense improves, UNC could make some noise. The offense returns 10 starters. (Carolina Blue)

North Carolina Football: Five players to watch in 2015

The Tar Heels put together the highest-ranked recruiting class of Larry Fedora's four-year reign -- ranked 24th overall by Scout.com and third in the ACC -- and, Fedora added maybe his most important recruit in defensive coordinator Gene Chizik. Will it get North Carolina the breakthrough season it's been pining for? These five players will help to determine it. (FOX Sports)

Who’s Who in the ACC on preseason football watch lists

The preseason watch lists for 17 major college football awards were announced over the past two weeks, with no fewer than 77 ACC players and six from East Carolina earning mention for at least one honor. Clemson had the most nominees with eight, followed by North Carolina, Duke, Florida State and Virginia Tech with seven each. (Wilmington Star News)

Coastal Division baffling again entering ACC Football Kickoff

North Carolina welcomes back 17 starters, including 10 on an offense ably guided by quarterback Marquise Williams. But the Tar Heels ranked 116th among 125 teams nationally in scoring defense at 39.0 points per game last season, and absent exponential improvement under new coordinator Gene Chizik, UNC is less trustworthy than an o-lineman left to his own devices at the ice cream bar.

Catching up with Jaguars OL Brennan Williams: The NFL's biggest nerd

Brennan Williams received a scholarship to play at UNC, which is where he was named an honorable mention on the 2012 All-ACC team. In 2013 he was drafted in the third round by the Houston Texans and now plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars. He is also unquestionably the biggest nerd in the NFL. We caught up with Williams and talked about what it’s like being a football player with highly unconventional interests. (Sports Illustrated)

Jeff Saturday induction is at ideal time

Jeff Saturday’s induction into the Indianapolis Colts’ Ring of Honor has an ironic twist. The retired center will see his name and jersey number 63 unveiled at Lucas Oil Stadium during the Colts’ Sept. 21 game against the New York Jets. It was against the same opponent, as a rookie in 1999, that Saturday thought he had played his way out of the league. (Colts Blitz)

ACC football preview: Five players to watch

Quinshad Davis, senior, WR, UNC: Lost in all the twists and turns of the Marquise Williams saga in Chapel Hill was that Davis saw his role in the offense decrease drastically. He caught only 470 yards' worth of passes as a junior after spending two seasons as one of UNC’s best targets inside the 20. If the Tar Heels are going to win, Davis needs to be involved.
