Hokies still trying to get healthy after off week, prep for reeling UNC

Judging from the lingering bumps and bruises he saw in No. 14 Virginia Tech’s limited practice work during its off week, Coach Justin Fuente doesn’t have a clear image of what his team will look like Saturday against North Carolina. There’s still time for Tech to mend before hosting struggling UNC, but the running back and wide receiver positions are trouble spots. (Daily Press)

UNC Basketball: Walker Miller 2017-18 season preview

Walker Miller will carry on a family tradition this season when he joins the North Carolina basketball program as a walk-on. Miller, the younger brother of former UNC point guard Wes Miller, first committed to Dartmouth, one of the Ivy League’s oldest and most respected schools.

The Good, Bad, & Ugly Report: Virginia

Carolina’s remaining five games include three games against teams ranked in the top 16, Pitt, and a Western Carolina team that is currently 5-2. This season has been a perfect storm of injuries, poor play, bad luck, and did I mention injuries? UNC may win 3 of 5, or may not win another game all year. That’s the state of Carolina football in 2017. What are you gonna do? (Old North Blog)

Top 10 moments from Late Night With Roy

“Coach Smith would be so proud of you.” Kenny Smith said it early, but that didn't make the quote any less memorable. Roy Williams, who is entering his 14th season as Tar Heel head coach, was introduced after the words to thunderous applause, followed by close embraces with seniors Theo Pinson and Joel Berry. (Daily Tar Heel)

Accrediting agency won't reopen investigation into UNC academic scandal

The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the accrediting body for UNC, told WRAL News Monday that it had reviewed the NCAA's findings against UNC and did not find anything there that would prompt another investigation. Dr. Belle S. Wheelan, SACS president: "I have read the report and I find nothing in it to cause use to reopen the investigation." (WRAL.com)

NCAA follows own rules, accepts that UNC athletics didn’t break theirs

There is no way to accurately measure the damage done to the academic and athletic reputations of one of the nation’s most esteemed public universities, but we will minimize it by calling it Milky Way-like. How many times in the last five years did UNC get dragged through the cow pasture by television commentators during athletic events who depended on the reporting of others? (The Robesonian)

Joel Berry Named to Bob Cousy Award Watch List

UNC point guard Joel Berry was named to the preseason Bob Cousy Award watch list on Monday. The Cousy Award is given to the nation's top collegiate point guard. Berry averaged 14.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game last season and would be the fourth UNC point guard to win the award (Raymond Felton 2005, Ty Lawson 2009, Kendall Marshall 2012). (Inside Carolina)

UNC Making Strides in Ground Game

With varying degrees of injuries to four starting offensive linemen since the start of the season, UNC's current starting line made its fourth consecutive start together against the Cavs and holes that were previously hard to come by became more available. UNC rushed for 211 yards at a 6.0-yards-per-carry clip, as 19 of its 33 non-sack rushes earned four yards or more. (Inside Carolina)

UNC's Fedora has easier recruiting road with end of NCAA academic case

Larry Fedora was hired in 2011 as the NCAA was wrapping up an initial investigation into the football program that spawned the academic case. He said after Saturday's loss that he had been "numb" about the case for a long time. But it had been a constant topic in recruiting, from recruits' families asking questions to schools using it against UNC on the recruiting trail. (Associated Press)

Video: Larry Fedora Pre-Virginia Tech Press Conference

North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora speaks with the media on Monday prior to the Tar Heels' game at Virginia Tech on Saturday in Blacksburg, Virginia (3:30 PM, ESPN2). View Video...

Five With Fedora - Oct. 16

Larry Fedora: "You see guys like Tomon Fox, C.J. Cotman, Tre Shaw and Dazz Newsome making more plays the more they play. All of the young guys. That's what you hope to see and we're seeing it. I think the effort they're putting in and the effort you see from these guys in the games has been outstanding. So the playing time these guys are getting now will pay off as we move forward."

Chansky’s Notebook: Call It Time Served

Did UNC get off scot-free by the NCAA? Hardly. I know there is outrage in corners across North Carolina, and college athletics in general, by the NCAA’s decision not to sanction North Carolina because it could not prove any of its bylaws were violated. It’s funny how people who understand exactly what happened still think UNC should have been punished. (Chapelboro.com)

Ten years ago, UNC mascot Jason Ray entered our lives in an unexpected and tragic way

It's been 10 years since Jason Ray was hit by a car in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Ten years since Charlotte and Emmitt followed Jason's wishes and allowed him to become an organ donor. They're doing better today than they thought they would. Still, it isn't easy. How do you process the fact that the world praises a selfless decision your son made, but for that to have happened your son had to die? (ESPN.com)

Tomon Fox announced his arrival as a pass rush specialist on Saturday against Virginia. The redshirt freshman defensive end had two sacks and forced a fumble.

(Inside Carolina)

Bears' Mitchell Trubisky breaks rookie QB curse in Baltimore

Mitchell Trubisky reminded everyone on Sunday why the Chicago Bears believe he can develop into a franchise quarterback. Trubisky’s 27-yard, third-quarter touchdown pass to tight end Dion Sims showcased the rookie’s mobility, accuracy and arm strength. That’s a big-time throw for any NFL quarterback -- much less a rookie in his second career start. (ESPN.com)

Video: J.P. Tokoto Australian Hype Video

J.P. Tokoto stared for three seasons at UNC before leaving after his junior season to enter the NBA Draft. The 6-foot-6 Wisconsin native was taken No. 58 overall in the 2015 NBA Draft by Philadelphia 76ers.

After six years of uncertainty, Fedora, UNC football can finally move on

While news that the NCAA had ended its investigation into the Tar Heels’ athletic department without imposing any penalties was greeted with relief, elation and even vindication by some at UNC, Fedora said he’d become “numb” to the situation. “You’re happy that it’s over,” the coach said of the seemingly neverending case. “But don’t think that we haven’t been penalized."
