Marquise Williams among ACC's 2015 Heisman hopefuls

North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams’ numbers in 2014 were exceptional already, but he was largely overshadowed by UNC’s rocky season defensively. If the Tar Heels can finally emerge into a Coastal contender with Williams leading a high-powered offensive attack, he could easily emerge as one of the nation’s biggest dual threats at QB.

Carolina Rundown: December 15

Bruce Carter played well on Sunday Night Football, making six tackles and grabbing a game-sealing interception. Giovani Bernard had 79 yards on the ground and 24 yards receiving. All-America honors for two UNC men's soccer players. The volleyball team defeated Oregon to advance to the NCAA regional final for the first time in school history, but fell to Texas in the round of eight. (GoHeels.com)

Quick Lane Bowl: UNC has fond memories of Detroit

The Dec. 26 Quick Lane Bowl against Rutgers will not be North Carolina's first time playing at Ford Field. The Tar Heels basketball team completed its magical run there in 2009, beating Michigan State for the NCAA title in front of a plethora of MSU supporters. (Detroit Free Press)

Tar Heels Targeting Durkin to Lead Defense

North Carolina is targeting D.J. Durkin to lead its defense, according to multiple sources. The Florida defensive coordinator is serving as interim head coach for the Gators in the Birmingham Bowl. Tar Heel head coach Larry Fedora met with Durkin on Sunday, sourced confirmed, and the UNC administration has granted Fedora the ability to offer a competitive financial package. (Inside Carolina)

Congratulations To The Tar Heel Graduates

UNC held its Winter Commencement on Sunday, and approximately two dozen student-athletes are among the nearly 1,000 undergraduates who completed their degrees this month.

Butch Davis Speaks Out On ESPN About UNC Academic Scandal

One of the first people to lose his job over the UNC academic scandal is talking. Former football coach Butch Davis spoke on ESPN's "Outside the Lines" Friday saying he's not to blame. Davis called it a rush to judgment. He lost his job and some would argue his reputation. (ABC 11)

Rutgers, North Carolina get $1.2 million each for Detroit Quick Lane Bowl appearance, report says

If you didn't know, there's going to be a college football bowl game played in Detroit on Dec. 26 at Ford Field. And it reportedly will include a lucrative payout for North Carolina and Rutgers — the Quick Lane Bowl's two participating teams. (MLive.com)

Fedora: 'You're starting to see the real Eric Ebron'

What do Kyle Fuller and Johnthan Banks have in common? They are two of the NFL's up-and-coming corners. And they were both posterized by Eric Ebron in the past two weeks. The Detroit Lions rookie tight end jumped over Fuller, the Bears' top cornerback, in a win two weeks ago. Then he did the very same thing to Banks in a win last week against Tampa Bay. (MLive.com)

Motown welcomes Tar Heels

Balmy temperatures and palm trees were nowhere in evidence as North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora and UNC athletic director Bubba Cunningham met the press in this Detroit suburb on Friday. Nor will there be when the Tar Heels face Rutgers in the Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26 at Detroit’s Ford Field, home of the NFL Lions. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Fedora mum on Koenning's future on UNC staff

UNC football coach Larry Fedora suggested Friday that he needed to speak with his players and staff before publicly commenting on media reports that Tar Heels defensive coordinator and associate head coach Vic Koenning would not be with the program next season. “I’m really not at liberty to talk about that at this time,” Fedora said during a Friday afternoon new conference.

Bowl game matchups: North Carolina vs. Rutgers

Who wins: As has been the case most of the season, this game really depends on which North Carolina team shows up. The Heels are talented, as evidenced by their rout of Duke and win over Georgia Tech. They also have a tendency to not show up, as we all saw in the regular-season finale at rival NC State, an inexplicable 35-7 loss. Rutgers wins 38-31. (ESPN.com)

Video: Connor Barth knows a lot about a lot

Connor Barth is our sit-down guest for the 9NEWS Denver Broncos pregame show this week. We thought we were going to talk to the Broncos kicker about, well, kicking. But we got a whole lot more. Here's a preview of the memorable interview with Barth. (9News.com)

Coaching Changes Aren't a Cure All

It is important to remember that changing the coach isn't a cure all. Yes, it had to be done because a sacrifice needs to be made on the altar of accountability and fan outrage. However, the state of UNC's defense in 2014 isn't the result of one factor. The sheer awfulness of the numbers point to something that is multifaceted and unresolved simply by jettisoning the coach running that unit overboard. (Tar Heel Blog)

Carolina Rundown: December 12

It appears Kentucky has lost a starter to a torn ACL. Jonathan Cooper got his second career start in the Thursday night game as Arizona beat St. Louis, 12-6. Ed Davis is adjusting to a starting role with the Lakers. Three Tar Heels were invited to the MLS combine. (GoHeels.com)
