Audio: Jones Angell and Carolina football

It's almost football time at North Carolina. With the opening kickoff only a few days away, we're talking with Voice of the Tar Heels Jones Angell about his broadcast career and the upcoming football season, which begins Saturday evening against the University of Georgia. (SoundCloud)

Not Looking Back, UNC's Run Defense Primed For Improvement

It isn’t a reach to suggest that if the Tar Heels are better at stopping the run they will again be formidable. The offense should be outstanding, the special teams very good, and the secondary proved a year ago it was plenty capable of doing its job. So, Carolina’s pass defense could be among the nation’s best in 2016. But the run defense is another story. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Larry Fedora Live: QB Communication

Football is all about communication, especially for the quarterback. Not only does this player need to be able to communicate with his offensive teammates, but he also needs to be on the same page as his coaches. That is where UNC junior quarterback Mitch Trubisky may have grown the most since he arrived in Chapel Hill, according to Larry Fedora. (Inside Carolina)

UGA vs. UNC Prediction, Game Preview

The Tar Heels offense could be just as explosive as last year, and it starts with Mitch Trubisky being a proper replacement for Marquise Williams at quarterback. He has All-ACC wide receivers Ryan Switzer and Mack Hollins back, along with All-ACC running back Elijah Hood. (Campus Insiders)

Nick Chubb, Elijah Hood key for Georgia and North Carolina

The Kirby Smart era gets underway Saturday at the Georgia Dome when the Bulldogs square off against North Carolina. Georgia has a new coaching staff but returns enough players that they may not look that much different in 2016. UNC finally broke through last season and wants to prove that was no fluke. Here is a look at some of the key players for Saturday’s game: (Dawg Sports)

UNC's Des Lawrence: Georgia is 'a test we are ready to take'

There is plenty of hype surrounding the North Carolina Tar Heels coming into the 2016 season, but Carolina is focused on taking things game-by-game and improving upon last year. UNC started the 2015 season on a rough note losing the first game to South Carolina, and senior defensive back Des Lawrence says that may have been a product of the Tar Heels trying to do too much.

Four key stats that will point to UNC football success

It’s game week. The University of Georgia and Nick Chubb are finally on the horizon. The 2016 season is days away, and Tar Heel fans are one major season-opening win against an SEC opponent away from talking themselves into a College Football Playoff berth. To help feed that fire, I started looking at some stats from last year. (Tar Heel Blog)

45 years after 'Dooley Bowl,' UNC and Georgia set to meet

Nearly 45 years have passed since the last time North Carolina and Georgia met on the football field. On the very last day of 1971, the Tar Heels and Bulldogs collided in Jacksonville’s Gator Bowl, in a game that will always be remembered as “The Dooley Brothers Bowl.” With the recent death of Bill Dooley, it seems fitting that we revisit that game.

Greg Little Released by Buffalo Bills

Greg Little was released by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday. The veteran wideout was let go on Tuesday even after his impressive preseason in which he was second on the team in receptions and receiving yards. Little will now hit the open market, with a chance to sign on with a team looking to add experience to their wide receiver corp. (CBS Sports)

Against Georgia, UNC has a chance to put big game woes behind them

When North Carolina plays Georgia on Satuday, it’s another chance in a big game against a big name opponent. Those haven’t ended well for UNC the past couple years. At the end of last season, North Carolina had two chances to win a marquee game. In the bowl game, they were practically ran over by Baylor. (Tar Heel Blog)

Romar Morris Waived by New York Jets

Romar Morris was waived by the Jets on Monday with an injury designation, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports. Morris was competing for a spot in the crowded Jets backfield prior to being released. He injured his shoulder and will require surgery, which was the reason for the team deciding to part ways. He'll be eligible for the injured reserve list if he clears waivers. (CBS Seattle)

Video: Gene Chizik Tuesday Post-Practice Interview

UNC defensive coordinator Gene Chizik met with the media following Tuesday's practice to discuss the many true freshmen that will see action in the opener Saturday, how much further his unit is from this time a year ago, and other thing as the Tar Heels prepare for Georgia. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC Opponent Preview: Georgia

Georgia enters the 2016 season hoping for a new beginning. The momentum of a 4-1 start to the 2015 season was halted by the injury of Bulldogs’ star running back Nick Chubb. The Bulldogs finished the season 10-3 (5-3 SEC). Following the conclusion of last season, Georgia parted ways with coach Mark Richt, who was replaced by a former Bulldog in Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart. (Inside Carolina)
