Can Momentum Bring UNC 5-star football commitments?
North Carolina landed a pair of commits last Friday, and also received a visit from an in-state five-star prospect.
Now with inside linebacker Jonathan Smith and running back Jordon Brown on board, do the Tar Heels have a shot on Wake Forest (N.C.) High defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence or Havelock (N.C.) High outside linebacker Keion Joyner?
Candid Coaches: What are the best three basketball jobs in the country?
What are the top three college basketball jobs in the country? It's hard to take issue with Kentucky, Duke and North Carolina finishing first, second and third, and Kentucky and UNC are no-brainers, I think, if only because every man who has coached either of those schools for at least five seasons has won a national championship dating back more than 50 years.
Fedora: UNC Could Win With Trubisky
Larry Fedora has been vocal and direct this summer in declaring Marquise Williams the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback for his "Hurry Up-No Huddle" offense. Fedora also has full confidence in Williams’s backup, sophomore Mitch Trubisky. “We could win with Mitch right now if we went with Mitch, no doubt,” Fedora said following Wednesday’s practice.
How Pharoh Cooper became a Gamecock and not a Tar Heel
If UNC’s football coaches had been able, or willing, to come up with two more tickets to the 2012 basketball game against Duke, Pharoh Cooper probably would be wearing blue. “Originally, his dream school was North Carolina,” said Jim Bob Bryant, Cooper’s coach at Havelock High School in eastern North Carolina. That changed during Cooper’s junior year.

UNC reveals uniform for season opener
The Tar Heels will go classic for their season opener against South Carolina on Sept. 3rd in Charlotte. The UNC Sports Equipment department revealed on periscope and later on twitter that North Carolina will wear white pants, blue jerseys, and a blue helmet. The uniform combination includes the addition of argyle to the pants, jersey, and helmet, a new touch for the 2015 season.
Video: Defensive Players, Coaches Wednesday Post-Practice Interviews
UNC Defensive Coordinator Gene Chizik, linebackers coach John Papuchis, and senior LB Jeff Schoettmer share what they hope to see from the Tar Heel defense when Carolina takes on the Gamecocks on September 3.
What to do with third-string Ravens quarterback Bryn Renner
Young quarterback Bryn Renner is quietly having a strong preseason for the Baltimore Ravens. We've been talking about him for a couple of weeks, and every time you watch the kid play he impresses you more. He isn't going to dazzle you with great arm strength, but he seems to have a presence about him on the field. He is competitive and doesn't mind taking charge of the huddle.

Seventh Woods schedules official visit to Georgetown
Class of 2016 guard Seventh Woods has begun the process of scheduling official visits to the four schools he's still considering. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Woods will visit the Hilltop officially the weekend of September 11th. In addition to the Hoyas, the four-star guard is also considering the South Carolina Gamecocks, North Carolina Tar Heels and the Florida Gators.
Ranking the Toughest Games on UNC's Football Schedule in 2015
North Carolina plays seven games at Kenan Stadium and one game in Charlotte. Only four times does UNC play on someone else’s campus. On top of that, UNC did not draw Florida State, Clemson or Louisville in crossover games with the ACC Atlantic Division. From that perspective, it seems that Larry Fedora's team has a dream schedule. However, there are some pitfalls.
North Carolina football in good hands with 'The Freaks' wide receivers
It was well documented in the 1980s by lyrical scientists otherwise known as the rap group Whodini that the freaks come out at night. North Carolina coach Larry Fedora will unleash The Freaks -- that's what the Tar Heels wide receivers call themselves -- for the first time this year during the Sept. 3 season opener against South Carolina. He very well might send five of them to the field at the same time.
UNC defensive end Dajaun Drennon aims high with low number
Sophomore defensive end Dajaun Drennon is easy to spot during a football game. And that’s not because he’s 6-foot-4-inches, 255 pounds and has shoulder-length dreadlocks. While most defensive linemen have jersey numbers in the 70s or 90s, Drennon has settled for No. 17 — a number most associated with skill players such as quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers.
UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky still working, competing
This offseason, Larry Fedora has killed the two-quarterback system, leaving Marquise Williams as the unquestioned starter and Mitch Trubisky as the backup. For some, that would be it. Players only get four years, and every season, quarterbacks transfer after losing competitions in order to maximize their eligibility. But Trubisky stayed. He’s a competitor; he wants to compete.
