UNC-Duke: Larry Fedora Postgame Quotes

Larry Fedora: “First thing I want to do is give Duke credit. They played a heck of a game. Our team played hard, there was no doubt about the effort. They made more plays than we did and we’re in a position to win a football game in the fourth quarter and we didn’t finish. That’s happened to us three times. Everybody understands that that’s my responsibility.” (Inside Carolina)

It’s early, but still plenty important for Blue Devils, Tar Heels

Maybe a meeting this early in the season between Duke and North Carolina makes the football game even bigger. Certainly the stakes seem high, with each team still capable of producing a strong season. “It’s so unusual to be playing this game early,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said of Saturday’s gathering in Chapel Hill. “I think it’s going to add a little life to it, to be honest with you."

The reeducation of Julius Peppers

Because he had played the position for 12 years, no one batted an eye when Julius Peppers rejoined the Panthers at defensive end. But, apparently, even future Hall of Famers need lessons. For Peppers, that’s meant dropping habits he picked up as a standup outside linebacker in the Packers’ 3-4 defense. “It's still a process. I'm still learning how to play defensive end again."

Faith takes Jason Brown from football to farming, and to Peoria

The sweet-potato harvest at Jason Brown’s farm in North Carolina takes place in about two weeks. It’s a busy time at his 1,000-acre spread. But the former NFL offensive lineman was able to take a break to visit Peoria, perhaps to help grow his faith instead of crops. “We take our farm-food ministry very seriously,” Brown said after he spoke to hundreds at the Peoria Civic Center.

Andre Smith, UNC’s star linebacker, is out for the season. Here’s who will replace him.

Always be prepared. Never slip. This is the advice North Carolina sophomore linebacker Jonathan Smith gets from his dad during almost every phone call between father and son. And it’s that advice that brings Smith to the empty team meeting room after hours. Here, he and junior linebacker Cole Holcomb comb through film of the Tar Heels’ upcoming opponent. (Charlotte Observer)

Will Mitch Trubisky make a start soon? History is on his side...

The question of when Mitchell Trubisky would make his first career start was always going to be a storyline this year, but Mike Glennon’s rough showing in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought it to the forefront of Bears-centric debate this week. Coach John Fox doesn’t want to deal in hypotheticals. But when will Glennon not be the starter and give way to Trubisky? (CSN Chicago)

Larry Fedora on Cutcliffe: “I think he’s done an unbelievable job over there.”

Heading into a critical game with Duke on Saturday, UNC coach Larry Fedora dropped by The David Glenn Show. Fedora and DG discussed a variety of topics: the rivalry with Duke, North Carolina’s 1-2 record, and Duke coach David Cutcliffe. “He’s done a great job everywhere he’s been. I think he is probably undervalued; he’s just a tremendous football coach.” (ACC Sports Journal)

Tar Heels’ injury situation goes from bad to worse

North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora was only joking on Monday when, commenting about his team’s injury situation at his regular weekly news conference, he told reporters that “the way things are going right now, we’re going to need every single guy and probably some of you.” Or maybe he wasn’t joking at all.
