What UNC must do to beat Georgia

The University of North Carolina will face off against the Georgia Bulldogs on a “neutral” field in Atlanta, Georgia in just 42 short days. Between now and then there will be much speculation as to what the main keys and focus to the game are. We decided to start that conversation off with three keys for the Tar Heels to come out victorious.

Larry Fedora and Ryan Switzer Have Fun at the ACC Kickoff

Larry Fedora and Ryan Switzer clearly had a lot of fun at the ACC Kickoff on Thursday. Like several other ACC coaches and players, the pair played rounds of “Fruit Ninja” in virtual reality. The ACC Digital Network also got Fedora and Switzer to go along with a fun bit based on a recent tweet from the wide receiver. Back in June, Switzer noted that his coach did not follow him on Twitter.

Report: Celtics re-sign Tyler Zeller

After reportedly agreeing to terms with Gerald Green, the Boston Celtics also reportedly locked up Tyler Zeller to a guaranteed two-year deal, and then filled out the roster with Demetrius Jackson and Ben Bentil. Zeller gives Boston a big man with real height who remains a better rim protector than the departed Jared Sullinger and who can play extended minutes.

Spurs’ Danny Green Relishes Being Role Model

Sports are often used as a tool to not only teach athletic skills, but life skills as well; that is what San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green set out to do with his statewide basketball clinic tour....Green, who’s been coached by North Carolina’s Roy Williams and the Spurs’ Gregg Popovich, is using the knowledge he’s gained over the years and sharing it in his youth clinics.

Crystal Dunn Poised To Become Next Star Of U.S. Women’s Soccer

When the Americans head to Rio de Janeiro in August to pursue a fourth consecutive Olympic gold medal, the heartache that came with missing out on the World Cup can finally go away for Crystal Dunn. After a year in which she broke out as the top goal-scorer in the NWSL, Dunn has also emerged as one of the USWNT’s most important young players.

UNC Ranks 35th Among Universities in U.S. Invention Patents

UNC has been ranked number 35 out of the top 100 universities to be granted U.S. Utility Patents in 2015. The report was published by the National Academy of Inventors, a non-profit organization, recognizing U.S. and international universities and non-profit research institutions that have received the most patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Notes about Duke, UNC football from ACC Kickoff

Scotland High School graduate Jonathan Smith is expected to make a significant contribution on UNC's defense as a true freshman this fall. Smith, the two-time Southeastern 4-A Conference Defensive Player of the Year, enrolled a semester early in college and participated in spring practice with the Tar Heels.

Tar Heels’ Des Lawrence makes fashion statement at ACC Football Kickoff

What a spectacle Des Lawrence’s closet must be. North Carolina’s senior cornerback was among the dozens of players and coaches who spoke at the ACC Football Kickoff Thursday, but the former Charlotte Christian star made more noise with his clothes than his comments.

Corpus Christi officer helps Spurs’ Danny Green with flat tire

Usually it's a Spurs teammate who gives guard Danny Green the assist. Late Wednesday night, it was a Corpus Christi police officer. Officer Robert Cabello saw a man dealing with a flat tire on his car, according to the police department's post on Facebook.

Des Lawrence excited for big senior season with improved UNC defense

Cornerback Des Lawrence enters his senior season at North Carolina more mature and intent on making headlines on the field rather than off the field. He was one of four Tar Heels suspended for one game at the start of his sophomore season because of an off-campus altercation involving the team. “I’ve settled down,” Lawrence said Thursday at ACC Kickoff.

A long legacy of research at UNC

From building the first university astronomical observatory in the United States, to becoming the world’s leading scholar on Franklin Delano Roosevelt, to developing antiretrovirals that prevent HIV transmission by 96 percent — researchers at UNC-Chapel Hill have achieved amazing feats.

Offense can carry UNC again in 2016

UNC football coach Larry Fedora doesn’t believe his offense has reached its limits. “We have the talent to be better than our numbers said we were last year.” Given what Carolina accomplished a season ago, Fedora’s expectations may come off as somewhat far-fetched. But a look at the personnel suddenly makes his hopes seem a little more realistic.

Audio: Fedora doesn’t care about predictions: “It’s not something that we talk about”

Back in Charlotte for the 2016 ACC Kickoff, North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora joined The David Glenn Show. During the interview, Fedora mentioned that following a disappointing close to the 2015 season, there was plenty to work on in the offseason. “When you lose your last two games, you have things you want to talk about,” Fedora stated.

UNC tries to stop revolving door atop ACC's Coastal Division

North Carolina coach Larry Fedora knows all about the unpredictable nature of the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division after his Tar Heels made a surprise climb to the top last season. Staying there? Now that will be tough based on the division's recent run.
