Monday Larry Fedora Post-Practice Quotes

Larry Fedora on the first day scrimmage: It was a pretty typical scrimmage in that there were some great things that happened and there were some catastrophic things that happened. The great thing is that all the catastrophic and bad things that happened are all correctable. The good thing is that it is the first scrimmage and we have another practice tomorrow. The effort was tremendous. (Carolina Blue)

Chansky’s Notebook: A Fair Call by the Coach

Larry Fedora is a stand up guy. Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight! I love Larry Fedora being UNC’s football coach, and have thought that since an old friend Fedora used to work for said he was a straight shooter, forward thinker and a no B.S. guy. He wants to win but wants to do it the right way. Yet he’s competitive and no fool. (Chapelboro.com)

Former Steeler Jeff Reed escorted out of Hall of Fame game

Jeff Reed has been out of the NFL since 2011, but the former Steelers kicker is still close to the game and was on hand at the Hall of Fame game on Sunday night between the Steelers and Vikings. But the night didn't end well for the two-time Super Bowl champion who played for the Steelers between 2002 and 2010. The eccentric kicker appeared to be removed from the stadium in Canton, Ohio for being intoxicated and getting into a confrontation with another fan. (Sporting News)

Bug Howard Taking Snaps at Tight End

Bug Howard has always been a wide receiver with tight end size. This season, Howard has gotten several reps at tight end during North Carolina’s training camp, lining up along side split end Quinshad Davis, A-back Ryan Switzer and flanker Mack Hollins. His inclusion in the slot gives quarterback Marquise Williams his four best targets on the field at the same time. (Inside Carolina)

Offensive Line Play Highlights UNC's First Scrimmage

On the first play from scrimmage, UNC’s veteran offensive line blew open a hole that Elijah Hood burst through for an 80-yard touchdown run on Sunday. Quarterback Marquise Williams was tasked with manufacturing much of UNC’s ground game in 2014 due to youth and inexperience along the offensive line. That position group apparently made a statement with its play in the first scrimmage of training camp. (Inside Carolina)

Gamecocks, Tar Heels look forward to playing on national stage

When North Carolina and South Carolina meet in Charlotte to open the college football season, both programs will look to fill in a few blanks regarding their programs. But there is one question that fans are obviously interested in. Exactly who is the better Carolina when it comes to football? The season opener, which is now less than 30 days away, will provide an opportunity for the Gamecocks and the Tar Heels to claim bragging rights in the border battle. (WISTV.com)

UNC players meet and greet their fans

North Carolina didn’t exactly tear it up on the football field last season. Actually, the Tar Heels didn’t do much the year before that, either. They were 4-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference in each of the past two seasons. UNC was 7-6 overall in 2013 and a little worse in 2014 at 6-7, Coach Larry Fedora’s first losing season as a head coach. Yet folks came clutching baby-blue helmets and posters and footballs with sky-blue hues Saturday at UNC’s Eddie Smith Field House. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Countdown UNC's 10 Best Players: #5 Quinshad Davis

An accurate prediction for wide receiver Quinshad Davis would probably be about 50 receptions, 725 yards and seven touchdowns. That performance would be reminiscent of his first two years and would really provide a spark for UNC’s offense. Davis' 150 career receptions is 31 shy of Hakeem Nicks’ record and his 1,976 receiving yards ranks ninth all-time in UNC history. (Keeping It Heel)

ACC 2015 Preseason Quarterback Rankings

4. Marquise Williams, UNC: North Carolina’s skill players and offensive line should be among the best in the ACC, and Williams returns as one of the league’s top quarterbacks after passing for 3,073 yards and 21 touchdowns and adding 783 yards and 13 scores on the ground. The senior ranked second in the ACC last season by completing 62.9 percent of his passes in league games. (Athlon Sports)

ESPN ACC preseason football power rankings

Fall camps are up and running throughout the ACC, and a few things have changed since we last compiled our power rankings. 10. North Carolina Tar Heels: We love the Tar Heels' offense, which should be terrific this season. But how much progress can Gene Chizik make in Year 1 on defense? UNC is just starting to install the bulk of its Tampa 2 scheme, so there is a lot of ground left to cover. (ESPN.com)

Gio Bernard's versatility may present conundrum for Bengals coaches

Giovani Bernard has one main concern at this early stage of the Cincinnati Bengals' season: getting chances. "When you've got the opportunity to build on something," the third-year running back said, "you've just got to capitalize on it and hopefully do something with it." Last season, the number of opportunities Bernard had were ultimately fewer than he anticipated. (ESPN.com)

Lions TE Eric Ebron causes mismatch problems during strong first week of training camp

Eric Ebron was humbled during a rocky rookie season with the Detroit Lions last season. So the former 10th overall pick returned home to North Carolina determined to right some wrongs. He's pored over his playbook. He's obsessed over other veterans, gleaning tips on routine and scheme. And it has all come together for him over the past few weeks, with a standout performance during minicamp. (MLive.com)
