Lucas: What Woody Says

Today’s meeting is because Woody Durham has primary progressive aphasia, and he felt an obligation to tell Tar Heel fans why they would no longer see him making speeches or hosting events or telling stories in public.

UNC sneak preview: WR Bug Howard a pest for opposing DBs

As a 6-foot-5, 220-pound wide receiver for North Carolina, Bug Howard looks like anything but a bug these. In fact, wearing the No. 84 jersey for the Tar Heels, he looks a lot like Randy Moss, his longtime idol. And he plays like him, too. Howard has been one of UNC’s most productive receivers over the last three seasons. (Dawg Nation)

UNC's Top 30 Football Players Ever: No. 1 Charlie Justice

Charlie Justice was the only two-time runner-up for the Heisman Trophy until Arkansas’ Darren McFadden fell short twice a decade ago. Justice was UNC’s all-time total yardage leader (1946-49) until the early 1990s and did everything for the Tar Heels. He ran, passed and even punted for UNC, helping lead the program to its best four-year stretch ever. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Greg Little trying to resurrect career in Buffalo

Remember Greg Little, the second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2011? Or how about Leonard Hankerson, chosen in the third round by the Washington Redskins the same year?

UNC Sneak Preview: What you need to know about Georgia’s opening opponent

I spent several days in Chapel Hill last month observing the Tar Heels as they wrapped up spring practice on that beautiful college campus. Those guys are coming off an 11-win season under fifth-year head coach Larry Fedora and they’re eager to prove themselves against Georgia and the mighty SEC. (Dawg Nation)

UNC's Top 30 Football Players Ever: No. 2 Amos Lawrence

The second player i college football to rush for 1,000 yards in each of his four seasons, and it’s only been done two other times by players from power programs: Tony Dorsett (Pittsburgh) and Cedric Benson (Texas). Set an ACC-record rushing with 286 yards in a game as a freshman. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC's Larry Fedora shows support for men's lacrosse

The North Carolina men's lacrosse team won the national championship in spectacular fashion Monday, and UNC head football coach Larry Fedora congratulated the team via twitter.

New Orleans Saints TE Jack Tabb nearing return after injury ended rookie season

Former UNC tight end Jack Tabb isn't participating in New Orleans Saints organized team activities just yet, but he's getting closer and says he expects to be back on the field soon. A year of rehab has increased his strength; now he just needs to do some more on-field work to shake off any rust from the 10-month absence. "I'm in the best shape I've ever been in." (New Orleans Times-Picayune)

Medical experts unsure about Georgia RB Nick Chubb’s knee for season opener versus UNC

During the 2015 season, Georgia running back Nick Chubb suffered a near career-ending knee injury against the Tennessee Volunteers which prematurely ended his season. Chubb has been hard at work trying to rehab, but while many believe he should be ready and 100 percent this season, some doctors believe it could be a longer road to recovery than expected.

ACC’s most underrated football talents - Ryan Switzer

North Carolina had so many weapons on offense a year ago, Switzer was easily overlooked. He finished with 55 catches, 697 receiving yards and six touchdowns, which doesn’t stand out too much, but he also returned 22 punts for 302 yards and two scores. He averaged 13.7 yards per punt return and his eight total touchdowns were tied for most among Tar Heels receivers. (Today's U)

1-on-1 with UNC coach Larry Fedora: Room for Growth

Larry Fedora: " Even though our offense broke all sorts of records, I think 62 total records this past season, there was still so much room for growth. What we were able to do was break all that down and show the guys, so they were able to see that too. If not, all they will do is just listen to their friends and talk about all the success they had." (Inside Carolina)

UNC DT Jeremiah Clarke Returns; OL Will Dancy Exits

Redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Jeremiah Clarke, who was not enrolled at UNC during the spring semester for undisclosed reasons, is back in Chapel Hill for summer school and is eligible for the fall semester, according to a UNC spokesperson.
