Video: 2015 UNC Football - Big Hits Compilation

A video compilation of some of the biggest hits in Tar Heel Football history set to music to get you hyped for the upcoming 2015 season. View Video...

Quinton Coples Wears Many Hats

Versatility is a big weapon in Quinton Coples' arsenal. And actually, I think that's hurt him in some fans' eyes because he's never been turned loose for a prolonged period as a pass rusher. But that's OK with Q. Just tell him what you want him to do. "I'm 'zero to free safety,' " he said of his position, zero being zero-technique, head-up on the center. (New York Jets)

Eric Ebron's confidence could help him in second year with Lions

Eric Ebron channeled Muhammad Ali. One of the greatest talkers and most loquacious athletes in sports history, "I'm a bad man." In explaining why he'll be a better player in his second season, Ebron mentioned his own confidence. And he said he was trying to revert back to how he felt in college at North Carolina, when he knew who he was and would not let anyone change that. (ESPN.com)

Detroit Lions looking for Eric Ebron to start stringing good practices together

Eric Ebron's season isn't going to be defined by his performance in one practice. The dropped passes during an OTA session in May will be a distant memory come September, just like his impressive start to this week's minicamp won't matter when the Detroit Lions travel to San Diego to battle the Chargers in Week 1.

Belk College Kickoff Game To Be Televised On ESPN

ESPN announced Thursday that the 2015 Belk College Kickoff Game featuring the Tar Heels of North Carolina taking on the Gamecocks of South Carolina will be televised on ESPN on September 3. Opening kick is scheduled for 6 p.m. EDT at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. The Tar Heels currently lead the series with a 34-18-4 record against the Gamecocks. (GoHeels.com)

Secondary switch-up

New North Carolina defensive backs coach Charlton Warren entered the spring with an open mind, knowing the secondary needed changes and needed to play better. He opened up the competition for all four spots. During spring practice, everyone was given a shot to win a starting job. Incredibly, heading into fall camp, there are four new names atop the depth chart: (Carolina Blue)

Ranking the Top 5 Running Backs in UNC history

A few have referred to North Carolina as “Tailback U” due to the multitude of 1,000 rushers in their gridiron history. There have been 15 tailbacks that have crossed the thousand-yard mark for a total of 26 times. However, rushing yards over a single season do not completely define a back’s greatness. Let’s see which greats sit on the list of the best 5 running backs in UNC football history. (Carolina Blue)

William Sweet Making Big Gains

Back in Jacksonville, Florida for high school graduation last week, William Sweet had a surprise for family members who hadn’t seen him in months. Some 18-year-olds put on a freshman 15 during their first semester of college. For Sweet, it’s been more like a freshman 30. “Oh yeah, we could see that he’d picked up some extra pounds,” William Sweet’s father, William Jr. says. (Inside Carolina)

Sylvester Williams measures up at nose tackle for Broncos

Sylvester Williams earned a bigger role in the Broncos' defense over the past month, securing the starting nose tackle job. When he begins training camp next month, he will be a bigger man. Williams revealed Wednesday that his offseason of positive adjustments will include an additional wrinkle. He plans to return to work at 320 pounds, roughly 10 pounds more than he currently weighs. (Denver Post)

Lions TE Eric Ebron moving past disappointing rookie campaign

Detroit Lions fans must hate hindsight because it's 20/20 when it comes to last year's draft and tight end Eric Ebron. And when you take Ebron in a draft where they were rumored to be trading up for a big receiver like Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans before ultimately passing on the likes of Odell Beckham Jr., the expectations are going to be high.

2016 NFL Draft: North Carolina Preview

Over the last five years, North Carolina has produced 21 NFL Draft picks, but zero came in the most recent draft class. The Tar Heels have sent multiple draft picks to the NFL each of the last seven years until the 2015 NFL Draft, also snapping a four-year streak with at least one first round pick. North Carolina's top NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2015: (CBS Sports)

James Hurst Aims To Be Super Sub For Ravens

Hurst was an undrafted rookie out of North Carolina last year. A knee injury to Monroe, whom the Ravens signed to a long-term contract last offseason, would have seemingly been a crushing blow, but Hurst stepped in and did the job. It’s a very difficult position to begin with, let alone for an undrafted rookie. (Baltimore Ravens)

Toughest three-game stretch: North Carolina

The home date against Miami comes after a bye, and that’s the one UNC should circle as a must-win. Those final two games could be real trouble though. Last year, UNC lost to both Virginia Tech and NC State by a combined margin of 69-24. It was the Tar Heels’ two worst offensive performances of the season, and both the Hokies’ and Wolfpack’s defenses are likely to improve in 2015. (ESPN.com)
