Matt Harvey aware he's in poor standing with Mets

Matt Harvey was mad. The righthander stormed through the clubhouse to stand in front of his locker and face questions about his night, about his journey back from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery. He glared at reporters and challenged questions, but the 29-year old was mad at himself. “It’s kind of hard to take any positives out of the last two years for me. It’s frustrating." (New York Daily News)

UNC basketball: Kenny Williams injury update

Kenny Williams began his UNC career after de-committing from VCU when Shaka Smart left the university to take the reins at Texas. Since putting on the Carolina blue uniform he has found himself catching the injury bug. A knee injury ended his sophomore season right after the first Duke game, and he had surgery this offseason to fix the issue. (Tar Heel Blog)

UNC's Alan Winn Named National Men’s Soccer Player of the Week

College Soccer News announced Monday that UNC senior forward Alan Winn was named its National Player of the Week, after scoring three goals in the Tar Heels’ wins over William & Mary and Duke. Despite missing UNC’s first three games due to injury, Winn has responded with four goals and an assist over UNC’s last four games–all of which have been victories. (Chapelboro.com)

Tar Heels look to heal

UNC’s hurting football team was feeling better only because it won its latest game. The Tar Heels are a banged-up bunch and so that leaves their lineup for Saturday’s game against Duke in a stage of uncertainty. The offensive line might be where the biggest concerns exist. “We’re going to have five guys that go out there and fight their butt off,” Larry Fedora said Monday. (Burlington Times News)

Rivalry week comes early for UNC football

Larry Fedora says he prefers playing rivalry games later in the season. But during his weekly press conference Monday, Fedora spent time fielding questions about Duke, which the Tar Heels will face Saturday in their second ACC game of the season. Saturday's game marks the 104th in the rivalry, and it will be their earliest meeting in series history – the previous being Oct. 10, 1925. (GoHeels.com)

Ashley Hoffman Named ACC Field Hockey Defensive Player Of The Week

UNC's Ashley Hoffman has been named ACC Field Hockey Defensive Player of the Week. Hoffman manned the center back position as North Carolina beat two ranked teams last weekend. Playing at Duke's Williams Field, the Tar Heels beat No. 10 Boston College 2-1 in overtime on Saturday and earned a 3-0 shutout against No. 13 James Madison on Sunday. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Men's Soccer Back To The Pitch Tuesday Against George Washington

No. 8 North Carolina continues a busy stretch of the season by hosting George Washington on Tuesday at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary.

Admission is free. (GoHeels.com)

UNC Prepares for Earliest Meeting with Duke in Series History

Saturday marks the first time the Tar Heels and Blue Devils have played in September and represents the earliest meeting in series history by nearly three weeks (Oct. 10, 1925). The rivals have played in November in 77 of the last 78 years and met in the regular season finale 49 times in 61 years before N.C. State assumed the role of UNC’s final opponent in 2014.

UNC vs. Georgia Tech Game Time Set

The North Carolina vs. Georgia Tech game will kick off at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30 in Atlanta's Bobby Dodd Stadium. In 2016, The Tar Heels defeated the Yellow Jackets 48-20 in Kenan Stadium. UNC is riding a three game winning streak over the Rambling Wreck. UNC (1-2) is coming off a 53-23 win over Old Dominion and will take on Duke this Saturday. (Inside Carolina)

It's time for Mitch Trubisky — even if John Fox can't see it

Start him anyway, and stop coddling a 22-year-old who proved in the preseason why he was the No. 2 selection in the NFL draft. Trubisky's mobility fits better with an offensive line that needs a quarterback to help hide its shortcomings, an element Glennon can't offer. Trubisky's accuracy and ability to hit receivers in stride will improve their efficiency. (Chicago Tribune)

Ho-hum weekend ends with swarm of B grades for Triangle football coaches

Larry Fedora, North Carolina, B: UNC's offense was too much for Old Dominion in the Tar Heels’ 53-23 win, but there was a lot for Fedora to fret about on the trip home. The defense gave up a 71-yard touchdown pass and the special teams leaked oil throughout a warm afternoon. On the bright side, the Tar Heels' quickly rebuilt offensive unit is fully up and humming. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Five With Fedora - Sept. 18

When you watched the game film, what specific areas did you feel the defense performed well in compared to the first two weeks? Larry Fedora: "First, the communication that we talked about previously was much improved this week. But we didn't really need to wait until we saw the film to see that because you could see it and feel it during the game and on the sidelines." (GoHeels.com)

UNC alumna in the US Virgin Islands gathering medical donations after Hurricane Irma

UNC alumna Jennie Rabinowitz reached out to ABC11 after escaping storm devastation in the US Virgin Islands. She's fundraising for medical supplies and urging medical professionals to help after Hurricane Irma destroyed the only hospital on the island of St. Thomas. Rabinowitz said she escaped the devastation there by boat and is now in Puerto Rico. (ABC 11)

What former Tar Heel great Julius Peppers told UNC’s Joel Berry and Luke Maye

Joel Berry and Luke Maye were on the sidelines to beat the Carolina Panthers’ ‘Keep Pounding’ drum before kickoff, but first they had to say hello to Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers. Peppers played on both the football and basketball teams at UNC before being selected by the Panthers back in 2002. “He just told us congrats,” Berry said. “Very cool to finally meet him.” (Charlotte Observer)

The Good, Bad, & Ugly Report: Old Dominion

The UNC offense hummed along as per usual but the defense still looked shaky in spots against an outmanned ODU team and the Heels left Ballard Stadium dinged up with injuries in the already depleted offensive line and defensive front seven. That made it the get right game UNC needed but not necessarily they one they wanted. With that in mind, here is this week’s GBU Report: (Old North Blog)

Pro Heels: NFL Week Two

Mack Hollins and the Philadelphia Eagles played at Kansas City. Hollins received the first catch of his NFL career and finished the game with three catches for 32 yards with a long of 13 yards. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Ryan Switzer played in his second NFL regular season game. In Dallas’ loss to the Denver Broncos, Switzer had one punt return for 19 yards. (Argyle Report)

Joel Berry, Luke Maye serve as honorary drummers for Panthers

The North Carolina Tar Heels men’s basketball program will begin practicing in just a few weeks as they hope to defend their 2017 national championship. On Sunday, two members of that 2017 title team were honored in Charlotte. Both Luke Maye and Joel Berry II were named honorary drummers for the Carolina Panthers’ home opener against the Buffalo Bills. (Keeping It Heel)

Julius Peppers reintroduces himself during Carolina Panthers home opener

This was Julius Peppers’ first regular season home game as a Panther since 2009. So in Luke Kuechly’s mind, it was a no-brainer to let Peppers savor the moment. Being the last one to run out of the tunnel is an honor that has been reserved for the faces of the franchise. “It’s Julius Peppers man!,” Kuechly said. “He deserves that with everything he’s brought to this franchise.” (Carolina Panthers)
