Sounds like Mitch Trubisky will get his shot with Bears' first-string

Chicago Bears coach John Fox either has to break his GM’s silly promise to Mike Glennon by playing Mitch Trubisky with the first-string or he has to risk losing the locker room by continuing to start the inept and uninspiring Glennon because the players always know who deserves it and who doesn’t. Trubisky has completed 72.7 percent of his passes this exhibition season. (Chicago Tribune)

UNC DC John Papuchis Keying on Four Defensive Stats

First-year UNC defensive coordinator John Papuchis doesn’t care much for traditional statistical categories that are mainstays in the media yet no longer apply to the current game. “I am a stat-heavy guy in terms of what really matters,” Papuchis said. “There are a lot of stats that when you really look at them, they’re not really relevant to playing good defense.” (Inside Carolina)

Old Well ‘Worth the sip’ on UNC's first day of classes

For the past three years, Corbin Phifer has made a habit of stopping by the Old Well on the first day of classes in hopes that the legend of the first sip comes true and she receives a 4.0 grade point average for the semester.

Now that you have a season under your belt back at UNC, what's it been like for you as a former player to coach the guys wearing the same Tar Heel uniform that you wore?

UNC Football early opponent preview: Louisville Cardinals

The last time these two teams played was 2012 with Louisville still a member of Conference USA. Larry Fedora was in his first season still trying to instill his new offense and Charlie Strong hadn’t left for Texas yet. Louisville got the win at home that day 39-34.

Mitch Trubisky beaten up but not beaten down in second exhibition

Mitch Trubisky took his jersey and laid it over a chair inside the Bears’ locker room Saturday. A grass stain was smeared across the back, symbolic of a performance that wasn’t as clean as his captivating debut.
