Larry Fedora: Mitch Trubisky will measure '6-2 or a little taller

UNC coach Larry Fedora laughed when asked if his star quarterback Mitch Trubisky will measure 6-foot-1 at the NFL Combine next week instead of the 6-3 he's listed at in his Tar Heels bio. "I think it's funny,'' Fedora told on Wednesday. "I love this time of the year watching how they just tear every kid apart. I promise you Mitch will be tall enough." (

Starting Point for UNC's Offensive Line

Chris Kapilovic knows that UNC’s offense has to retool in 2017. Though “Coach Kap” is the offensive coordinator, he’s also the offensive line coach, and he knows that position will have to account for attrition. Gone are center Lucas Crowley and right tackle Jon Heck, and also Caleb Peterson. What will the starting five look like when spring ball opens next Tuesday? (Inside Carolina)

Mitch Trubisky to Take Part in Jon Gruden’s QB Camp

Jon Gruden’s QB Camp series, a signature element of ESPN’s annual pre-NFL Draft coverage, returns for its eighth year this spring. In the coming weeks, Gruden will welcome seven quarterbacks, including former UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky, to ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando where he’ll spend time with each prospect in the film room and on the field.

Frustrated by errors last season, Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager has addressed those issues

The look returns to Kyle Seager’s face. It’s one part annoyance, another part aggravation. It’s arises when Seager does something on a baseball field that he believes is unacceptable for himself. A perfectionist and often his harshest critic, Seager suffers his mistakes with minimal sympathy for himself or any mitigating circumstance of the situation. (Seattle Times)

Mipso, string band formed by UNC grads, plays to the beat of a brand-new drummer

With a sound that blends the present with the past -- old-time string band instrumentation in service of timeless stories inspired by relationships and other emotional experiences -- Chapel Hill band Mipso has established itself as one of the top Americana bands in North Carolina.

More solid defense from Nate Britt a big part of UNC’s victory

Nate Britt’s UNC career has been full of shifting roles, different challenges, some struggles and stretches of outstanding play. His most valuable contribution this season has come on defense, and that never was more apparent than during No. 8 North Carolina’s 74–63 victory over No. 7 Louisville on Wednesday to take control of the ACC regular-season race. (Raleigh & Company)

Justin Jackson Building Awards Resume

Justin Jackson scored a team-high 21 points, using his body to get to the rim and using his shot to rattle home several 3-pointers. It was the seventh time in nine games that Jackson had scored 20 or more points, and it was the 10th time he had made at least four 3-pointers. He’s quick to credit UNC strength and conditioning coach Jonas Sahratian for his body development. (Inside Carolina)

The Primary Break: UNC-Louisville Quick Takes

With his 14-point, 10-rebound double-double, Kennedy Meeks passed Rusty Clark on both the all-time scoring and rebounding lists. He moved into the top 10 in rebounding with 939 in his UNC career. He should pass Eric Montross (941) for ninth place in UNC’s next game at Pitt. The top 8 all have 1,000+ career rebounds (Brad Daugherty is eighth with 1,003). (The Secondary Break)

Lucas: ACC After Dark

Welcome back, old ACC. It’s 11 p.m. and do you know where your Tar Heels and 21,269 of their closest friends might be? They’re in the Smith Center, standing and roaring, not worried that tomorrow is a school day or there’s an 8 a.m. meeting or traffic in the Bowles Lot is going to be sticky. There aren’t many things in life for which you’d endure this. (

UNC-Louisville Postgame Quotes

Roy Williams: "I just heard about one fan being ejected at halftime, yelling something at Rick (Pitino). I don’t like that. I mean we’re North Carolina, we don’t have to be like everyone else. You can raise Cain and you can boo, but you don’t have to say stuff that we as coaches have to put up with. I hope that never happens again at North Carolina. I apologize to Rick." (

UNC stakes their claim to the title of ‘nation’s best’ with No. 7 Louisville beatdown

UNC is not a sexy pick, they’re not the favorite in Vegas and they may finally crack the No. 1 seed line in all bracket projections after beating No. 7 Louisville 74-63 on Wednesday night, but at this point, I’m not sure that the Tar Heels aren’t the best team in college basketball. ‘The Best Team In College Basketball’ is not an easy title to earn this season.
