Clemson Looks to Reverse Losing Trend

Perhaps UNC head coach Larry Fedora said it best when he called this Clemson football team “really good.” The Tigers opened the season with high expectations, but got off on the wrong foot by getting outplayed in a 45-21 loss to then-No. 12 Georgia. A mere two weeks later, the Tigers suffered a crushing overtime loss to top-ranked Florida State. (Inside Carolina)

Clemson, UNC coaches to wear Coach to Cure MD patch

The Clemson and UNC coaching staffs will be wearing the Coach to Cure MD patches this Saturday, as will all ACC coaching staffs. The special arm patch is to raise awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This is the seventh year of Coach to Cure MD, a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and Parent Project MD. (TigerNet)

Opponent Preview: Clemson

A week after a trip to Greenville the Heels are once more on the road to open ACC play in a tough game in Death Valley at Clemson. The Heels open up ACC play against a good Clemson team that will test the Heels in different ways. Clemson is the best team that Heels will have played so far this season. The Tigers have more talent than ECU and San Diego State. (Tar Heel Blog)

Dabo Swinney Previews North Carolina

Another tough challenge this week. Only thing being worse than 1-2 is 1-3. UNC is a dangerous team. They are coming off of a really tough loss like we are. I know people look at the score and say goodness gracious. Football is crazy sport and crazy things happen. This is a really good football team. Biggest thing for us is to finish. (CU Tigers)

There are No Quick Fixes and This is Going to Take Some Time

UNC didn't just lose to ECU on Saturday, the Heels were throttled. There are no simple answers or quick fixes. The current state of UNC's program is owed to multiple factors none of which can easily be separated out. While people cite inexperience and scholarship limits as excuses, those are indeed legitimate factors that have a real world impact on the program. (Tar Heel Blog)

Tar Heels In The NFL – Week Three

Bruce Carter has been solid for the Dallas Cowboys so far this season and his strong play continued on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams as he recorded 12 tackles and had an interception that he ran back for a touchdown. Carter's pick-six pretty much secured the win for Dallas and increased their lead to 10 points with six minutes to play. (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels put to rest burial by Pirates, prep for Death Valley

North Carolina’s linebackers usually spend 90 minutes on Sunday reviewing tape of the previous game with their position coach, Ron West. This past Sunday, they didn’t even bother breaking down the 70-41 loss at East Carolina. Partly, it was because UNC played a unique one-linebacker scheme against ECU’s spread offense.

Picking Through The Ashes

North Carolina was (again) humiliated by its little brother, shockingly getting whipped at its own game by a faster, more physical, and more aggressive team. Below, we poke through the carnage a bit. There’s little use in my usual format of looking at one or two plays from this game, but I’m going to take a step back and discuss a few bigger issues that have surfaced in the wake of this embarrassing loss. (Inside Carolina)

Defensive Questions Linger

UNC head coach Larry Fedora provided a list of bullet points on Monday that were not responsible for his team’s defensive meltdown in Saturday’s 70-41 loss at East Carolina. Concrete answers were not available and may not be easy to come by. (Inside Carolina)

UNC not dwelling on East Carolina loss

When the linebacker group came into Kenan Football Center Sunday, they sat down to start watching film. But they didn't spend any time watching tape of the 70-41 loss to East Carolina. There simply wasn't anything beneficial to take from that performance, junior Mike linebacker Jeff Schoettmer said. (Carolina Blue)

Fedora Challenging Soul-Searching Tar Heels to Overcome Adversity

UNC head football coach Larry Fedora says the Tar Heels were definitely feeling down following their 70-41 defeat at ECU Saturday, but Fedora says it’s through adversity that the true character of a team is revealed. “The world didn’t come to an end. The sun came up yesterday. It’s back up today. We’ve evaluated film, got the corrections made, and have moved on,” Fedora says. (Chapelboro.com)

Larry Fedora Monday Press Conference Quotes

Larry Fedora opening comments: “The world didn’t come to an end, the sun came up yesterday, and it’s back up today, so we’ve evaluated film, looked at the film, broken down, got the corrections made and have moved on and preparing for Clemson at this time. I can change a lot of things like the way we practice, but I don’t think that’s the answer. I think the way we practice is the right way.” (Inside Carolina)

With Clemson ahead, UNC moves on from ECU loss

UNC linebacker Jeff Schoettmer didn't even bother to watch the film of his last game. ''We went right on to Clemson,'' Schoettmer said Monday. That made it easier for him to try and forget what was arguably the worst defensive performance in school history. The Tar Heels' holes were exposed in a big way by instate rival East Carolina. The Pirates burned them for 70 points and 789 yards. (Yahoo! Sports)
