Da'Norris Searcy snags a pair of picks

Bills safety Da’Norris Searcy has been a defensive back since high school, but he channeled his inner wide receiver in the Bills 26-10 win over the Cleveland Browns. Searcy had two interceptions on the day for 38 yards to post his first career multi-pick game. With Sunday’s interceptions, he now has five for his career and three this season. (Buffalo Bills)

Not Self-Imposing Bowl Ban Correct Move for UNC

With the uncertainty surrounding UNC’s academic scandal and the NCAA’s investigation, it does not make sense for UNC to self-impose a penalty that might not come into play. Whether much of the conduct in the Wainstein report is an NCAA violation is still an open question. How much the NCAA can corroborate is another. Self-imposed penalties are also unlikely to be helpful at this point. (30-Mile Radius)

Six Tar Heels Earn All-ACC Football Honors

Six North Carolina Tar Heels received all-conference honors, as announced Monday by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA). Quarterback Marquise Williams was a second-team selection, guard Landon Turner and wide receiver Ryan Switzer earned third-team honors and wide receiver Mack Hollins, defensive tackle Ethan Farmer and cornerback Brian Walker were honorable-mention selections.

Carolina Football recognizes the importance of their fans. As the 2014 season comes to a close, UNC Football and IMC Sports present this video as a tribute to the Tar Heel Football fans. View Video...

Carolina Rundown: December 1

Great Denver debut for Connor Barth, as he tied a franchise record and went 5-5 in his first game as a Bronco. A big win for women's basketball over Stanford. Marcus Paige will renew acquaintances with some AAU teammates on Wednesday. P.J. Hairston scored 15 off the bench for the Hornets on Saturday. The Bucks suddenly decided to play Kendall Marshall, and he had nine points and eight assists. (GoHeels.com)

'Redemption' bowl next game for UNC

North Carolina’s below-average performance Saturday against N.C. State notwithstanding, the Tar Heels’ win-loss record depicts a team that played .500 ball this season. At 6-6 overall and 4-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Coastal Division, UNC is eligible to get in some more practice reps while preparing to suit up for the postseason. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Art’s Angle: A Poor Response

I have never bought into the losing excuse that “we weren’t ready to play.” After a week of practices, team meetings and other various organized preparation, of course major college football teams are “ready to play.” What some teams don’t do as well as others is take the opponent’s first punch and respond in kind. That was obviously the case in UNC’s dismal 35-7 loss to N.C. State. (Chapelboro.com)

Is the ACC Headed for a Bowl-mageddon?

What if I told you a league expanded for football, and then had more bowl-eligible teams than it had guaranteed spots? That is the position the ACC finds itself in after Pitt's win over Miami gave the league 11 teams that have qualified for bowls. The ACC has 10 guaranteed spots, plus an overflow spot, meaning every ACC bowl tie-in is covered. So how then is the league coming up short? Blame Notre Dame. (Tar Heel Blog)

Connor Barth calls first game ‘awesome’ experience after tying Broncos record

Sand paper couldn’t wipe the smile off Connor Barth’s face. Sunday wasn’t his first NFL game. But it was his first with his new team. Following the Broncos’ worst special teams performance of the season, Barth made a memorable first impression, tying a franchise record with five field goals in Denver’s 29-16 trouncing of the Kansas City Chiefs. (Denver Post)

Extra Points: State of Shock

The dynamic of UNC facing its backyard rivals on back-to-back weeks is a recent occurrence. It never happened over a century for UNC to meet Duke and NC State in successive weeks until 1995. That year the Tar Heels beat Duke by four at home and then played State on a cold, rainy Black Friday in Raleigh, bolting in front and holding off a furious Wolfpack rally for a 30-28 win. (GoHeels.com)

Back to Drawing Board for Fedora, Heels

UNC coach Larry Fedora was at a loss for words following his team’s 35-7 loss to their rivals in red. What’s next for the Tar Heels? The Heels will now await their postseason bowl destination, likely a lower-tier bowl game. But in the meantime, Coach Fedora says the coaching staff will hit the recruiting trail and the players will focus on finishing up their coursework strong. (Chapelboro.com)

Slow start, bitter ending for Heels

Defensive end Dajaun Drennon knew something was wrong with North Carolina before the opening kickoff Saturday. While N.C. State players danced and jumped around, revved up for a rivalry game, UNC’s sideline at Kenan Stadium was more subdued. “They were jumping up and down and our sideline was dead,” Drennon said. (Greensboro News & Record)

The Good, Bad, and Ugly Report: NC State

What a difference a week makes in college football. Just last week, UNC played one of its best games in the Larry Fedora era in a 45-20 dismantling of Duke. The Tar Heels were well-prepared, disciplined, and played extremely hard against a fierce rival in a game that wasn't really as close as the final score indicated. Then this week happened. (Tar Heel Blog)

ACC Football Power Rankings: Week 14

11. North Carolina Tar Heels: UNC is perhaps the biggest enigma in a league filled with them. The Heels routed rival Duke last week and ruined the Blue Devils' Coastal Division title hopes -- and then laid an egg against NC State a week later. A much-hyped team entering the year, UNC proved to have way too many deficiencies, specifically on the defensive side. (ESPN.com)

NCSU-UNC: Brissett wins battle of QB toughs

N.C. State defensive tackle T.Y. McGill knocked North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams out of the game. Days before Saturday’s contest at Kenan Stadium, N.C. State safety Hakim Jones called out Williams as being the sort of signal caller who’d wilt when walloped a few times. (Durham Herald-Sun)
