Offense, defense both have their moments in UNC spring game

Spring football games are usually a glass half full vs. glass half empty proposition. If one side of the ball does well, it usually means that the other side didn’t. Saturday at Kenan Stadium, however, was one of those rare occasions in which both offense and defense came away with something to be happy about. The Tar Heels defense shined by intercepting four passes. (Wilmington Star News)

Spring football: Tar Heels chip away at offseason questions

Though not confirmed by Larry Fedora, it’s clear that it’s Mitch Trubisky’s long-awaited chance to be the first-string quarterback. The redshirt junior seemed particularly fond of receiver Mack Hollins, connecting with him seven times for 111 yards – including an 18-yard touchdown hookup. Trubisky completed 13 of 22 passes for 148 yards. (Burlington Times News)

Tar Heels try to top 2015 top-10 season

North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora's hope is for the 2016 Tar Heels to be better than last season in every way. UNC was undefeated in Kenan Stadium, won 11 games and the ACC Coastal Division Championship and was ranked in the top 10 nationally for the first time since 1997 in 2015. But being merely a top-10 team's not enough. (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC football not a one-hit wonder

Amid that uneasiness, though, there is something to be excited about, and it's not just the typical waiting for November for basketball season to begin again. North Carolina just had its best football season since the 1990s, and it has the returning talent to duplicate that success, finally on the verge of sustaining relevance for the first time since current players were born. Despite the ending, the 2015 season was not a fluke. (Sports on Earth)

Larry Fedora Post-Spring Game Quotes

Larry Fedora: "Offensively and defensively, there will be a lot of things we can learn from today. We had to run the scrimmage the way we ran it because of some injuries at certain positions, and we weren’t deep enough to be able to split into two teams and play a true game. That’s why we did it the way we did it, and we still thought we got a lot out of it." (GoHeels.com)

Tar Heels Wrap Up Spring Ball

UNC’s offense rallied for a 74-70 victory over the defense using an unorthodox scoring approach in Saturday’s Spring Game. The scoring system, which UNC borrowed from the Seattle Seahawks, provides points based on down-and-distance situations. Despite the offense’s win, UNC coach Larry Fedora wasn’t willing to give either side of the ball an edge. (Inside Carolina)

Tar Heels aim to build on defensive turnaround from 2015

The Tar Heels had several young players getting key reps during the spring, including January enrollees Jonathan Smith at linebacker, and defensive backs Myles Wolfolk and Myles Dorn. That trio combined for 14 tackles during Saturday's spring game that put the offense and defense against each other in a scoring system based on points awarded on outcomes for each play.

Spring Football Game: What To Look For

North Carolina will hold its annual spring game Saturday at 3 p.m. at Kenan Stadium. A year ago, the team held a scrimmage at Rocky River High School outside of Charlotte because a new drainage system was being installed underneath the field at Kenan. But it wasn’t an actual spring game, so Saturday’s affair will be interesting in that respect, and also because there are plenty of story lines worthy of noting. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

Competition a top priority at UNC spring football game

Whether it’s nothing more than a motivational ploy or actual competition, in Larry Fedora’s eyes, everyone on UNC's roster will be playing for a job during Saturday’s annual Spring Game at Kenan Stadium. “I want every guy on our football team to feel like they earned what they’ve got, that nobody gave them anything,” Fedora said after a recent spring practice.
