Turner's Take: The Golf Swing Mentality

"It felt great to finally win one on defense," Jeremiah Clarke said. "But like Coach (Gene) Chizik and the defense has been saying, it's the golf swing mentality. A perfect hit or hitting it in the water is one golf swing away It's literally this small of a chance," he said, holding his thumb and index finger to indicate a very small margin. (GoHeels.com)

North Carolina Tar Heels 2016 Midseason Review and Second Half Preview

After UNC lost a winnable non-conference opener to Georgia, the Tar Heels scored a thrilling crossover upset at Florida State, then followed that up with a waterlogged beatdown at the hands of Virginia Tech. Following this weekend's 20-13 win at Miami, dreams of a repeat division title are still alive. Here's a quick look behind and ahead. (Athlon Sports)

Trubisky, UNC finding continued success away from home

With their win against Miami on Saturday, the North Carolina Tar Heels improved to 3-0 in road games this season. The team has picked up its two biggest wins of the year away from home, defeating Florida State in Tallahassee before the win in Hard Rock Stadium against the Hurricanes. Trubisky and company have performed well in these high-pressure environments. (Carolina Blue)

Film review: Cornerback MJ Stewart stands out for UNC secondary

There’s plenty of praise for UNC's defensive line, especially for Jeremiah Clarke and Malik Carney. Defensive tackle Nazair Jones also deserves credit as the leader of that unit. But this week, we want to hone in on another star of the Tar Heel defense who came up big Saturday and has throughout the season — junior cornerback M.J. Stewart. (Daily Tar Heel)

ICTV: UNC Teammates Aim To Finish What Mack Hollins Started

Donnie Miles and the rest of the UNC locker room spent Monday reflecting on the impact of senior wide receiver Mack Hollins, who suffered a season-ending broken clavicle in Saturday's game against Miami. Hollins walked onto the football squad in 2013 and quickly became a playmaker and a leader. (Inside Carolina)

Coastal Favorites?

North Carolina entered its game Saturday at Miami still in contention for the ACC’s Coastal Division title. Yet, the Tar Heels clearly needed some help from other teams to earn a repeat spot in the league’s championship game. They got some of that help Saturday some 1,400 miles north with Syracuse shocking Virginia Tech at the Carrier Dome. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

For No. 22 Tar Heels, playing on the road isn't a problem

North Carolina keeps coming up with big wins on the road — and that has the No. 22 Tar Heels in strong position to win their ACC division again. Entering Saturday's trip to Virginia, the Tar Heels have won three road games this season and haven't lost on an opponent's home field since 2014. That eight-game run in true road games is tied for fourth-longest in the country. (Associated Press)

Fedora and Trubisky on Mack Hollins

One of the major topics of discussion on Monday inside the Kenan Football Center was the season-ending injury to senior Tar Heel wide receiver Mack Hollins and what that means for UNC. Hollins brought a lot to this Carolina football team and the Carolina football program. (Carolina Blue)

North Carolina kicker Nick Weiler reaches out to NC State's Kyle Bambard

There is no love lost between North Carolina and NC State. But for Tar Heels kicker Nick Weiler, the heat of their rivalry took a backseat to a simple act of kindness. After NC State's Kyle Bambard missed a 33-yard field goal that would have won the game against Clemson over the weekend, he was the subject of taunting and abuse on Twitter. (ESPN.com)

Monday Depth Chart, Notes & Quotes

The most notable change from last week’s depth chart is that senior WR Mack Hollins is no longer listed, as he’s out for the season with a broken collar bone. In his place on the depth chart is redshirt freshman WR Anthony Ratliff-Williams, who has seen limited action running pass routes but has been in on some special teams, including returning kickoffs. (Tar Heel Illustrated)

UNC Football Primed for Coastal Repeat

North Carolina needed wins and plenty of help to stay afloat in the ACC Coastal Division race following its 34-3 loss to Virginia Tech on Oct. 8. One week later, the Tar Heels have elevated their standing and may have the inside track to a second straight trip to the ACC Championship Game. UNC currently resides atop the Coastal standings with a 3-1 ACC record. (Inside Carolina)

Larry Fedora Monday Pre-Virginia Press Conference Notes

UNC head coach Larry Fedora spoke with the media on Monday, coming off a 20-13 win over Miami and heading to Virginia this weekend. Video confirmed to Fedora that the defense played really well. Fedora added that there were only six big plays that they shouldn't have given up. Fedora: "It was a good of a game as we have played" on defense. (Carolina Blue)

Five With Fedora: Miami Game

When thinking of key plays in a game, people always point to touchdowns or a big sack and fumble recovery. What was a play that stood out to you against Miami that people may have missed? Larry Fedora: “I think the play that Myles Dorn made in chasing down their running back was a huge play. Instead of giving up a touchdown, we end up holding them to a field goal." (GoHeels.com)

Lucas Crowley Voted ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week

Lucas Crowley graded out at 90 percent, had 12 knockdown blocks and did not allow a sack as the Tar Heels posted 461 total yards of offense in a 20-13 victory at No. 16 Miami. Crowley’s efforts helped North Carolina have success moving the ball against a Hurricanes unit that entered the game ranked 10th nationally in total defense. (The ACC)

Weekly North Carolina Coaching Grades

Larry Fedora, UNC, A: Since the injury toll continues to climb and especially along the quickly thinning offensive line, the 20-13 win at Miami didn’t entirely qualify as a perfect day for the Tar Heels. But it was close. Not only did UNC win an important Coastal game as a road underdog, Virginia Tech’s stunning loss at Syracuse rearranged the divisional landscape. (WRAL Sports Fan)
