Most Revered Name in Kenan Stadium History?

Charlie Justice was the most loved. Lawrence Taylor and Julius Peppers were the most feared. Dré Bly had the knack, Eric Ebron the smile and the stride and Chris Hanburger the scowl and the clothesline tackle. But behind the scenes, the most revered name in football over half a century in Chapel Hill was that of Morris Mason. (Kenan Journal)

Gene Chizik having fun again coaching football

There are two things immediately apparent about Gene Chizik when you visit him in his Carolina blue surroundings at UNC’s Kenan Football Complex. One, this is clearly a man who is relaxed and content with his current situation. And, two, he doesn’t mind telling it like it is. Both are likely a byproduct of the two years he spent outside the game he loves. (Dawg Nation)

UNC could face depth issues at RB with Williams transferring

The Tar Heels boast one of the best running back units in the ACC. That unit took a hit this week with the news that sophomore ball-carrier Ty’Son Williams is transferring. The impact of Williams’ departure may not be immediate. A year down the road, though, UNC could end up extremely thin at the position, and Williams’ decision to leave could be felt then. (Today's U)

Can UNC back up Marquise Williams' boast? Maybe

There’s something to be said for a little confidence, especially when you’re not in a position of having to back it up.
