31 Things You Need to Eat In Chapel Hill and Durham

From good ol’ Southern comfort food to burgers to staple drunk eats, these towns have got something for everyone. Whether you’re pulling for UNC or Duke, I think we can all agree that the food in these college towns is something special. (Spoon University)

Turner's Take: Don't Forget Thanksgiving

It's tempting to look past Saturday, to take a peek at the College Football Playoff rankings and try to figure out who needs to win and lose for the Tar Heels to ring in 2016 in style. But UNC has business to take care of. Thanksgiving comes before Christmas, and after Christmas, well, what are you doing New Year's Eve? We'll see. But for now, Happy Thanksgiving. (

Marquee QB matchup headlines UNC-NC State rivalry game

The Tar Heels are among the hottest teams in the nation and favored by a touchdown to extend their win streak to 11 entering the ACC title game against Clemson. If Jacoby Brissett has been good for the Pack, Marquise Williams has been just as good and maybe better this season for the Heels. There’s a reasonably good chance Thanksgiving Day 2016 could find both on NFL rosters. (WRAL Sports Fan)

UNC Volleyball Uses Efficient Offense To Sweep Demon Deacons

North Carolina volleyball kept its hot streak going on Wednesday, capturing its 12th straight victory with a sweep of Wake Forest on the final week of the 2015 regular season. The Tar Heels hit .371 with 12 blocks in the 3-0 victory to secure its sixth consecutive 20-win season, improving to 20-8 (17-2 ACC). (

Charlotte players dominate rosters for UNC, N.C. State football

When rivals North Carolina and NC State meet for the 105th time at Carter-Finley Stadium, a total of 35 players who hail from in or around Charlotte will be on the sidelines. Among the 14 on the Wolfpack's roster and the 21 playing for the Tar Heels are several former high school teammates and competitors, which adds an element of city pride to an already intense rivalry. (Fayetteville Observer)

Hakeem Nicks is back with the Giants, who think he can help

Hakeem Nicks, the Giants' prodigal 2009 first-round pick, is still, somehow, only 27 years old. What remains to be seen is how and how much Nicks can help. The Giants ran a completely different offensive system in 2009-13, when Nicks caught 311 passes for 4,622 yards and 27 touchdowns and helped the Giants to their Super Bowl XLVI title. (

Shaun Draughn Goes from Real Estate Salesman to Starting NFL Running Back

Shaun Draughn’s career was at a low point in 2013. The undrafted running back had just been released by the Baltimore Ravens. After already being let go by two other teams, Draughn began to consider life after football and turned to real estate, something he’d always been interested in. But more phone calls and tryouts from NFL teams allowed Draughn to put those plans on hold. (San Francisco 49ers)

Video: Justin Jackson CBE Hall of Fame Classic Highlights

Justin Jackson was dominant in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic, combining for 43 points (16-28 FG) to go along with 18 rebounds and 8 assists in two games against Northwestern and Kansas State - both Carolina victories. (View Video...)

UNC Women's Basketball Falls To Pacific

Erin Butler scored 15 points to lead Pacific to a 66-63 win over North Carolina Wednesday at Carmichael Arena. Xylina McDaniel came off the bench to score 16 points to lead four UNC (4-3) players in double figures. Jamie Cherry added 15 points before fouling out late in the fourth quarter. Freshmen guards Destinee Walker and Stephanie Watts each had 11 points. (

N.C. State looks to recapture magic of last year's win over UNC

Penetration in the backfield. Pressuring the quarterback to throw off his rhythm. Tackle well in space and don't give up deep balls. That was the formula the N.C. State Wolfpack used a year ago in routing archrival North Carolina on its home field, 35-7. (Fayetteville Observer)

Gene Chizik Nominated For 2015 Broyles Award

UNC defensive coordinator Gene Chizik has been nominated for the 2015 Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation's top assistant coach. Chizik won the award while serving as the defensive coordinator at Auburn in 2004. No team in the country has improved as dramatically on defense as the Tar Heels, who are allowing nearly 20 fewer points and more than 113 fewer yards than last year. (

Fedora praises UNC's consistency, discusses rivalry

North Carolina's goal is to become state champs. UNC has beaten Duke and Wake Forest. A win over the rival Wolfpack would fulfill that goal. Even though the Coastal Division has been clinched, Larry Fedora doesn't worry about the Tar Heels preparing any differently or not being focused. It's a rivalry game and that can bring out the best in both teams. (Carolina Blue)

A scientific look at Roy Williams' emotions

Emotion. It's something that UNC Men's Basketball Coach Roy Williams has a lot of. And now we know exactly what he's feeling. Microsoft released a new tool that uses an algorithm to guess how you feel, by using a picture of your face. The Daily Tar Heel used the tool to run some old photos of Roy to see just how he was feeling and graphed the results: (Daily Tar Heel)

The official Week 13 rooting guide for North Carolina fans

It’s the final week of the regular season, and at No. 14, the Tar Heels certainly aren’t a lock for the playoff even if they win out. But as a conference champion with 12 straight wins, a UNC team that wins out would have a good case. So, with that in mind, which teams should UNC fans be rooting for this week? Here’s a quick guide, in descending order of importance. (

Thought for the Day
Winning and losing are both very temporary things. Having done one or the other, you move ahead. Gloating over a victory or sulking over a loss is a good way to stand still...or worse.
