ICTV: Marquise Williams on the Rebound

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. "I had my days of just dwelling on my performance and I feel like I let the team down, but you just have to come out and you have to move on," he said. (Inside Carolina)

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. (Inside Carolina)

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.

Aggies will face tougher test against Tar Heels

North Carolina A&T's next game is Saturday against North Carolina in Chapel Hill. It’s the first time A&T, which plays in the lower Football Championship Subdivision, will play the Tar Heels. Aggie quarterback Kwashaun Quick is 11-3 as a starter in his career, including 7-2 last season when he completed 58.2 percent of his passes for 1,418 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Landon Turner Named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week

ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week – Landon Turner, North Carolina.: A preseason All-America selection, Turner lived up to his billing with a standout performance in last Thursday’s 17-13 loss to South Carolina, posting a 90 percent grade and registering 10 knockdown blocks. The Tar Heels ran for 208 yards and averaged 6.5 yards per carry against the Gamecocks. (The ACC)

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)

Tim Scott signed to Dallas Cowboys' practice squad

Colonial Forge graduate and UNC standout Tim Scott has been added to the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad. Scott, listed as a safety, signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent. He was a four-year starter at UNC, leading the team with 72 tackles in his senior season. He made 13 tackles in the Cowboys’ four preseason games. (Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star)

ICTV: UNC Defense Encouraged, Not Satisfied

After much anticipation, UNC's revamped defense proved to be improved and effective during the matchup against South Carolina, allowing only 17 points. Senior linebacker Jeff Schoettmer said it's just the first step. "I was encouraged with what we did defensively, but like I said, we're not satisfied with anything," Schoettmer said. (Inside Carolina)

Running back Elijah Hood supports role with Tar Heels

Elijah Hood seemed almost uncomfortable with so much attention regarding his role — or lack thereof — during a crucial segment of UNC’s season-opening loss to South Carolina. He wasn’t on the field for game-defining plays at the end of the 17-13 loss. “I wasn’t too surprised,” Hood said Monday. “There (were) times in the scrimmages that I would get down the field and then would come out.” (Burlington Times News)

A.J. Blue thrilled to be back at UNC as assistant strength coach

After spending a year coaching his son’s Pop Warner football team, A.J. Blue got a phone call last spring he’ll always remember. UNC “coach (Larry) Fedora called me and told me he had a strength job for me and he wanted me to take it,” said Blue, who played for Fedora’s first two Tar Heels’ teams in 2012 and 2013. “I took it and it’s really exciting to be back with football at this level.” (Gaston Gazette)

Lesson Learned: Give Elijah Hood the Ball

During UNC’s heartbreaking 17-13 loss to South Carolina last Thursday there was one player notably missing from the Tar Heels’ final seven offensive plays—sophomore running back Elijah Hood. Head Coach Larry Fedora gambled unsuccessfully late in the game, sacrificing Hood’s power running to try and keep the Gamecock defense off balance with his fast paced no-huddle attack.

The Baltimore Ravens new quarterback spent last season as a golf course attendant

It's not uncommon to see quarterbacks on the golf course. But to see one behind the clubhouse counter? Not so much. Meet Bryn Renner, the new third-string quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, and every golfer's favorite National Football League player. Renner was the former field general of the University of North Carolina squad. (Golf Digest)

Tar Heels try to clean up mistakes from loss to Gamecocks

Four days had passed since the Tar Heels' mistake-filled performance turned a winnable game into a frustrating loss against South Carolina. Yet Larry Fedora was still trying to answer for what happened, from the three critical interceptions thrown by a fifth-year quarterback to play-calling that anchored the Tar Heels' best weapon to the sideline in key moments.
