Odds are Mitch Trubisky will start for Bears sometime this season

Still, Bears general manager Ryan Pace held his ground and said: “There is no quarterback controversy.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

Five Questions With UNC DB Coach Terry Joseph

When the time came to decide, what factors led you to saying yes to Coach Fedora and come to coach at UNC?

Eagles' Mack Hollins heeds advice from Carson Wentz before training camp

Carson Wentz's suggestion to Mack Hollins last month was simple: Take some time off. "He talked about how long the year is, especially for rookies, because you get no break," Hollins said Monday after the Eagles' first training camp practice.

Harrison Barnes looks forward to development of Mavs’ ‘promising’ core in 2017-18

Harrison Barnes has stayed out of the public eye this summer, which for him has been a pleasant departure from his regular-season routine, when he talked with the media after every game. Win or lose, good game or bad, Barnes always did his duty, even on nights when it would take him an hour to finish. So the silent summer has been a welcome one for Barnes. (Dallas Mavericks)

UNC-Duke basketball rivalry set aside to help raise money for Teen Cancer America

Though Nolan Smith was the headliner for Saturday's event, Duke wasn't the only Triangle program represented. Former UNC players Brice Johnson, Nate Britt and Phil Ford were on hand, too.

Larry Fedora's Offense Built to Adjust

Larry Fedora's offensive system is not one of complexity, but rather of simplicity. Attack where the defense allows. “I’ve never been just stubborn in that there’s only one way to do it,” Fedora said during an interview with Inside Carolina. “I do believe that you need to be balanced, and I don’t care how it happens. It’s always been about taking advantage of what the defense gives you." (Inside Carolina)

The top 25 college basketball players with something to prove this season

Luke Maye, North Carolina: The man responsible for hitting the winning shot vs. Kentucky in the Elite Eight, the bucket that catapulted UNC closer to clinching a championship, will have a much bigger role in 2017-18.

Roy Williams Looks Ahead to 2017-18 Basketball Season

Heading into the 2017-18 UNC basketball season it's safe to say that the Tar Heels lost some key components from the last year's championship run. Gone is Justin Jackson.

North Carolina in need of special teams stars for 2017

This August, the Tar Heels will have players competing for starting jobs in numerous spots, including quarterback and running back. What’s easy to overlook as players vie for playing time on both sides of the ball is the fact that this year’s team will be tasked with replacing key special-teamers. Here’s where North Carolina stands in those areas: (FanRag Sports)

How UNC receiver Austin Proehl is emulating his NFL dad, Ricky, on and off the field

Austin Proehl learned two things early on from his father: how to catch and how to serve. The first part came naturally for the former Providence High standout, who turned an all-conference career into a scholarship at UNC.
