Does UNC boast the best cornerback duo in college football?

There have been many great duos in pop culture and sports: Tom and Jerry, Batman and Robin, Jordan and Pippen, and now M. J. Stewart and Des Lawrence. I know, it’s sacrilege to put them in the same breath as Tom and Jerry but let’s do it. These are two of the best corners in the country, forming possibly the best cornerback duo in the country.

UNC senior defensive end Mikey Bart is entering his final season at UNC, and year two as the power end starter for the Tar Heels.

Larry Fedora responded, "love ya man #TarHeelforLife #Igotyourback." Williams replied, "Love you too coach."

New QB Trubisky more interested in leading Tar Heels than following Williams

Marquise Williams told a statewide radio show that Mitch Trubisky would not only lead the Tar Heels to a second straight Coastal Division title, but that UNC would “be beating Clemson this year in the ACC Championship Game.” That’s a lot of pressure to put on a youngster whose start in the season opener against Georgia will be his first as a college quarterback.

Bills' Kevin Reddick Suffers MCL sprain

Buffalo Bills linebacker Kevin Reddick suffered a sprained MCL in practice on Friday. It was a rough day for linebackers at Bills' training camp, as both Reddick and second-round draft pick Reggie Ragland (knee) went down with injuries.

What we learned from UNC football's first day of training camp

Probably the biggest offseason storyline for UNC football is new starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who will make his first collegiate start when the Tar Heels take on Georgia on Sept. 3. But while much of the talk has been about how the redshirt junior can help the offense, the rest of the offensive players will make things much easier as the quarterback transitions.

Chemistry A Huge Factor in UNC Football’s Recent Success

Chemistry definitely isn’t the easiest subject in school, but if there’s one thing most people know about it—it’s that when things go wrong, they typically blow up in your face. It’s a good thing, then, for the UNC football team—which opened training camp Friday afternoon— that there seems to be a winning formula brewing. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC's players came to preseason camp talking about building on an 11-win season that ended with a pair of frustrating losses. It was a positive sign for fifth-year coach Larry Fedora.
