Turner takes leading role on UNC's veteran offensive line

Landon Turner is the perfect leader for North Carolina's offensive line. He's a fifth-year senior wrapping up a tumultuous career marked by NCAA investigations, two coaching changes, an overhaul to a no-huddle offense, even a postseason ban that kept the Tar Heels out of the ACC championship game in 2012. He also balances a relentless on-field drive with an easygoing demeanor. (Yahoo! Sports)

The ACC Top 10 Wide Receiver Rankings

5) Quinshad Davis (North Carolina): I distinctly remember being in Gaffney (S.C.) and seeing this wide receiver when he was coming out of high school and absolutely loving his upside. Larry Feodra and the Tar Heels jumped on him late and nabbed him in signing day. Davis has had three very productive seasons, catching 150 passes for 1,976 yards and scoring 15 touchdowns.

14 Position Groups Under Pressure in the ACC for 2015

North Carolina Defensive Line: Improving the defense was the top priority for coach Larry Fedora in the spring. Hiring Gene Chizik as the team’s new coordinator was a step in the right direction, and the former Auburn coach inherits six returning starters. Getting better play from the defense starts up front, as this unit has to stop the run better after giving up 240.5 yards per game in 2014. (Athlon Sports)

Long road ahead for Darian Durant after Achilles injury

The dust has settled from the Roughriders' difficult start to the regular season after losing franchise quarterback Darian Durant for the rest of the season. Durant ruptured his Achilles on an innocent-looking play late in the second quarter against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. "It's not career ending, there's no doubt about that. It's season ending, that's for sure," said general manager Brendan Taman. (News Talk 980 CJME)

Triangle college football's weight room warriors

Lou Hernandez at UNC chose senior WR/TE hybrid Kendrick Singleton. Singleton, who's known as 'Bull' because of his work ethic goes 'only' 6'2 and 215. He was a HS weightlifting champ though and according to Hernandez' formula, is the strongest pound for pound guy on the roster. The raw numbers bear that out: Clean 452. Squat 550 Bench 405.

Freshman DT Aaron Crawford crushing in the weight room

Interior defensive line depth is one area of concern for UNC football heading to the 2015 season. Tar Heel freshman defensive tackle Aaron Crawford, who has been enrolled for less than two weeks, might be an option to help out on the defensive front. (Carolina Blue)

My Carolina Experience: Greg Ellis

Through the 1996 season, Greg Ellis’s junior year as a All-ACC and All-America defensive end, the Tar Heels were 35-8-1 in Kenan Stadium in the 1990s, including 5-0 in ’96. They would win five of six at home in 1997 and notch back-to-back Top 10 finishes in 1996-97. The defense that Ellis was a part of limited opponents to an average of 217 yards and 11.5 points a game over two seasons. (GoHeels.com)

Former UNC DE Greg Ellis focused on the big screen

For two decades, football was life for former UNC defensive end Greg Ellis. "That's the challenge when you get off football," said Ellis. "All of a sudden, it's over." Always wanting to inspire, Ellis believed the best way to motivate was through entertainment. That led to his next venture, CEO of Play Now Enterprises and perhaps his biggest undertaking, a major motion picture. (WRAL Sports Fan)
