Lucas: Rapid Reactions - UNC vs. Virginia

One of the most controversial plays of the day involving the quarterback came with 1:10 left, when he appeared to be dragged down by the facemask on a crucial fourth down play in UVA territory. But the ACC crew did not throw a flag--until they hit the Tar Heel sideline with an unsportsmanlike penalty for protesting the non-call--and Virginia simply ran out the clock. (

Virginia beats N. Carolina 20-14; its best start since 2007

Kurt Benkert passed for 249 yards and two touchdowns to help Virginia beat North Carolina 20-14 on Saturday. Jordan Ellis rushed for a career-high 136 yards for the Cavaliers (5-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who are off to their best start since 2007. Virginia snapped its seven-game losing streak against North Carolina with its fourth consecutive victory overall. (Associated Press)

Video: Michael Carter Shines Against Virginia

North Carolina freshman running back Michael Carter racked up 157 yards on the ground on 13 carries and found the end zone twice against the Virginia Cavaliers in Chapel Hill on October 14, 2017. View Video...

UVa escapes UNC with 20-14 victory after missed penalty call late

Virginia’s defense had to hold on for the victory. Kurt Benkert fumbled in the fourth quarter, the Cavaliers’ first lost fumble of the season, giving North Carolina one final shot. But on fourth-and-9 at the U.Va. 37-yard line, junior linebacker Chris Peace sacked Brandon Harris – appearing to pull him down by his facemask. No call was made by the officials, and the penalty is not a reviewable one. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Difficult road back finally complete for UNC’s Kenny Williams

It didn’t matter that Kenny Williams’ shot wasn’t quite back Friday during the Late Night With Roy scrimmage. He was back and feeling at full strength again. He eventually came to terms with only being able to watch and cheer on his UNC teammates from the bench during their run to the national championship after having surgery on the torn meniscus in his right knee. (Raleigh & Company)

No. 4 UNC Men's Soccer Draws With No. 5 Louisville

No. 4 North Carolina got a result on the road at fifth-ranked Louisville, settling for a 0-0 double overtime draw on Friday night to add to its ACC Coastal Division leading points total. The scoreless result puts North Carolina (11-2-1, 4-1-1) at 13 points on six matches, three points clear of second place Notre Dame, who sits on 10 points after a 1-0 loss at home to Pitt on Friday. (

Chansky’s Notebook: Last Chance?

The Tar Heels’ injury woes and other problems aside, sooner or later hard work at practice, putting some plays together and a little luck are going to get them into the victory column. I think that will happen Saturday against Virginia. Clearly, this is a team that is short on depth, maturity and overall talent. But there are better football players than have shown up in recent weeks. (

UNC Football Family Embraces Fight Against Pitt Hopkins Syndrome

They stand on the UNC sideline, hand in hand, preparing to take the Kenan Stadium field before Saturday's Notre Dame game. For David Bomar, a Tar Heel safety from 1996-2000, the setting is familiar. His wife, Brooke, the middle daughter of former tailback Don McCauley, also knows it well. But this moment isn't for them. This is for their 5-year-old daughter Logan. (

Zack Gahagan Powers Blue To Game One Win In UNC Fall World Series

Zack Gahagan clubbed a pair of two-run home runs as Blue beat Navy 5-3 in the opening game of the UNC Baseball Fall World Series Friday at Boshamer Stadium. Cooper Criswell went six innings to get the win on the mound, with Caden O'Brien and Kyle Blendinger combining for three shutout innings of relief. Game two of the three-game series starts Saturday at noon. (

Late Night Notebook

Joel Berry II was on the verge of tears. At least that's what it looked like to Luke Maye on Friday night at the Smith Center, where the men's basketball team unveiled the 2017 NCAA championship banner at Late Night with Roy, shortly after a video montage. "We were all a little emotional," Maye said. Here are a few notes from Friday's festivities, hosted by Kenny Smith. (

If you think North Carolina got off easy, you need to see the bigger picture

In June 2015, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools announced it was placing UNC on a year’s probation, citing compliance violations in the areas of integrity, control of athletics, program content and other academic matters. For one of the nation’s top universities to have its accreditation placed under scrutiny is like having the bank threaten to foreclose on your home. (Sporting News)

Perspective on UNC football under Larry Fedora

Since arriving in Chapel Hill, Larry Fedora has guided UNC to a bowl game every season that they have been eligible. You know who did not accomplish that feat? Bill Dooley, Dick Crum, Mack Brown, Carl Torbush, John Bunting, and Butch Davis. What Fedora has achieved are not normal results. Be frustrated. Caring is good. Just understand how well Larry Fedora has done. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC set to move past academic probe, not celebrating ruling

The long-running NCAA academic case has ended with UNC facing no penalty. Still, even with what had to be the best possible outcome — a weight being lifted that has loomed over the Chapel Hill campus for years — school officials greeted the news more with cautious relief than exuberance. "This isn't a time of celebration," chancellor Carol Folt said Friday. (Associated Press)

UNC Basketball Players Comment on NCAA Resolution

In what became an odd coincidence, the NCAA's decision on North Carolina's case and Late Night with Roy were held on the same day. Following the Late Night festivities and the Tar Heels' intrasquad scrimmage, juniors Luke Maye and Kenny Williams spoke to reporters about the NCAA's decision, the team's approach, and head coach Roy Williams' reaction. (Inside Carolina)

Video: Julius Peppers makes NFL history with vicious sack of Carson Wentz

At 37 years old, Julius Peppers is still unstoppable. The Panthers defensive end got off to a big start against Philadelphia Thursday. On the opening possession, the Eagles drove into Carolina territory before Peppers brought their drive to a halt. On a first-and-10 from the Panthers' 35-yard line, Carson Wentz dropped back to pass and got smashed by Peppers. (CBS Sports)

‘A life of purpose’

For more than two centuries, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has prepared the state’s lawyers, business leaders, journalists, teachers, politicians and doctors. But the University experience, Gov. Roy Cooper said, does more than just prepare students for the workforce. Cooper was the keynote speaker at this year’s University Day celebration. (

UNC hangs banner at March Madness; Louisville keeps it subdued

North Carolina unveiled its 2017 NCAA championship banner during its annual "Late Night With Roy" event filled with jokes, dancing and a public scrimmage. It was part of a busy schedule that included Kentucky's "Big Blue Madness" as well as events at Louisville, Florida State, Georgetown and Iowa State among others in what amounts to a ceremonial start to the season. (

Lucas: A Banner Day

Whoever said Friday the 13th had bad mojo has clearly never met Friday, October 13, 2017. If we ever have to live one single day over and over again, can it be this one? Luke Maye's shot will always go in, and Roy Williams will always be proven loudly and emphatically right, and seven national championship banners will always look a little more filling than six. (
