M.J. Stewart everywhere for UNC football

Sophomore cornerback M.J. Stewart has been everywhere for the Tar Heels, four games into his sophomore campaign. He leads UNC with two interceptions, three passes broken up and five passes defended. Stewart has already matched his pick total from the 12 games of his freshman season. “I don’t think it’s me. I think it’s more (defensive backs) Coach (Charlton) Warren,” said Stewart.

UNC DBs Coach Charlton Warren Offering Option Insight

In 1998, Air Force won the WAC Championship with a 12-1 record behind Fisher DeBerry’s triple-option offense and a stout defense that allowed less than 300 yards per game. UNC head coach Larry Fedora served as DeBerry’s wide receivers coach that season, while secondary coach Charlton Warren was a standout defensive back for the Falcons. (Inside Carolina)

Fedora, Chizik talk Georgia Tech Prep

Larry Fedora and Gene Chizik spoke to the media after Wednesday's practice about stopping Georgia Tech, coach Charlton Warren, and the triple option. Larry Fedora on Georgia Tech preparation: "We've had three good days of preparation so far and the game plan is in, the guys understand it, and tomorrow we'll polish it up." (Carolina Blue)

Tar Heels In The NFL - Week Three

Since being drafted in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft, Quinton Coples has been a force to be reckoned with on the Jets defense. The linebacker from Kinston recorded 16.5 sacks over the past three seasons under the tutelage of former Jets head coach Rex Ryan. (GoHeels.com)

Georgia Tech offense’s ‘just play’ mandate

Part of the problem for the Georgia Tech offensive line in recent games may be falling into a trap of overthinking. Coach Paul Johnson said Monday at his weekly news conference that players may be anticipating too much. “We’ve got problems we’ve got to take care of from an execution standpoint,” Johnson said. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Offensive Line: Health, Redshirting, Recruiting

After Tuesday's UNC practice, CarolinaBlue went in-depth with offensive line coach Chris Kapilovic on a number of topics including the current health of the offensive line, the possibility of playing true freshmen, and recruiting challenges. "We have gone in with seven guys the last two weeks," Coach Kap started. "I'm praying that we can have eight for this one. Right now we don't." (Carolina Blue)

Georgia Tech’s Justin Thomas needs to trust teammates

It is far from the biggest problem that the Georgia Tech offense is facing right now, coach Paul Johnson was sure to make clear Monday, but he recognized that quarterback Justin Thomas has been trying too hard to make plays for the Yellow Jackets to the detriment of the offense. (Albany Herald)

UNC Offensive Line Named To Joe Moore Award Quarterly Honor Roll

The Joe Moore Foundation for Teamwork has announced the first quarterly Joe Moore Award Honor Roll, which identifies notable performances by offensive line units. The following universities earned a spot on the Honor Roll: Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Iowa, LSU, Michigan State, Navy, North Carolina, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn State, Southern California, Temple and Virginia Tech.

ACC Upset Watch Week 5: Will Georgia Tech get back on track?

Last year’s game was a scoring free-for-all, with the Tar Heels pulling out the win at the last minute. Georgia Tech has won eight straight over North Carolina in Atlanta, but the Jackets are having major issues running the ball. In their last two losses. If there is any good news for Georgia Tech, it’s the fact that North Carolina allowed 279 yards rushing to FCS Delaware last week. (ESPN.com)

Numbers Game Along UNC's Offensive Line

North Carolina's offensive line depth became a legitimate concern when top reserve guard Jared Cohen left the team for personal reasons and veteran interior lineman Will Dancy suffered a season-ending injury. A lower leg injury has sidelined Bentley Spain since the second week of the season, cutting UNC’s playing roster down to bare numbers. (Inside Carolina)

Injury picture better for Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech defensive end Rod Rook-Chungong is among multiple Yellow Jackets players injured in the past two games who appear on track to play in Saturday’s game against North Carolina. Rook-Chungong, a starter, suffered a shoulder injury against Notre Dame and sat out the loss to Duke, but has returned to practice. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

UNC Spreading The Wealth At Wide Receiver

UNC Wide Receivers Coach Gunter Brewer preaches balance amongst his group of wideouts. "Whoever it may be any given day, if they take one away then the other guy has to step up and do his part," says Brewer. The corps calls themselves the "Freaks" and they are living up to their name. A different player has led the team in receiving yards in each of the first four games. (Carolina Blue)

Lucas Crowley feels at home at North Carolina

Lucas Crowley knew there was something special about UNC the moment he walked onto campus. By the time he left, he already had committed to playing football for the Tar Heels. Now a junior, Crowley never has regretted his decision. “When I was getting recruited here, everybody welcomed me with open arms,” he said. “Other schools, some of the people acted like they didn’t have time for me.” (St. Augustine Record)

Rainy day blows over for Marquise Williams

Everyone has rainy days. Marquise Williams is no different. The normally sunny dispositioned quarterback did not play during the second half of Saturday’s rain-soaked 41-14 win against Delaware, as Coach Larry Fedora benched him for backup Mitch Trubisky. “As a senior, just some things you have to fix and clean up,” Williams said. “(Fedora) expects more out of me and I gave him more today.” (Daily Tar Heel)

Triangle teams in early position to make ACC title run

No Triangle team has won an ACC football championship since 1989 when Duke forged a tie for the title with Virginia. North Carolina has not finished atop the ACC standings since the days of Lawrence Taylor in 1980. NC State’s last ACC football title came in 1979. And yet all three schools appear to have a real chance to win the league; not just a theoretical chance. A real chance. (WRAL Sports Fan)
