Hard work pays off for UNC football player Bug Howard

From the final whistle of 2014, through the spring and summer, UNC wide receiver Bug Howard worked. Thursday night, in UNC’s 17-13 loss against South Carolina, a bigger, faster, better Howard displayed the fruits of that work.

Deafening crowd drowns UNC football's offensive line

UNC's entire offensive line struggled to communicate in the Tar Heels' 17-13 loss to South Carolina on Thursday. But in a neutral-site showdown in Charlotte, the Tar Heels were taken aback by the decidedly one-sided crowd. “(When) the crowd is supposed to be somewhat split, you don’t go in anticipating that it’s going to be one of the loudest games you’ve played in,” Jon Heck said.

It's time for Marquise Williams to move on from his disappointing season opener. After calls from fellow quarterbacks - most notably NFL great Peyton Manning - he's ready to do so.

Bug Howard Elevates Play

On a night the North Carolina offense would like to forget, Bug Howard played a game to remember. In the Tar Heels’ season-opening loss to South Carolina in Charlotte, N.C., Howard caught six passes for 114 yards and UNC’s lone touchdown, and stood out along with Elijah Hood as one of the team’s offensive bright spots.

Where was Hood at the end of UNC’s ill-fated last drive?

Why did Elijah Hood not touch the ball in the last red-zone sequence of North Carolina’s 17–13 season-opening loss to South Carolina? That question has been asked by many fans and commentators since Thursday, when Hood wasn’t given the chance to add to his 139-yard rushing total at the end of UNC’s ill-fated final drive.

UNC defense: "We have a long way to go. It's a long journey"

UNC forced punts, they got the ball back to the offense, and they allowed only three scores, 17 points, and just a couple of big plays. There was distinct, recognizable improvement. Players were in position. They played with energy and they played as a group. Still there is plenty of room for improvement for a group that is inexperienced in UNC's new defensive system.

ACC Week 1 Power Rankings

9. North Carolina (0-1): There isn’t much justification for the Tar Heels to be sitting at 0-1 right now. North Carolina handed South Carolina the game in the opener. The silver lining is North Carolina played well enough to win, and maybe they will build on the positives rather than dwell on the loss. (ESPN.com)
