Interview with Chase Rice

With that in mind, one would easily jump to the conclusion that country singer Chase Rice was hoping to kickstart his career when he appeared on 2010's "Survivor: Nicaragua." Even though he made it to the finale and narrowly lost to winner Jud Birza in the closest jury vote (5-4) in the show's history, Rice is hesitant to answer questions about his tenure on the show.

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.

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)

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.

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.
