UNC Athletics: Catching up with Corey Holliday
I recently got the chance to sit down with former UNC wideout and current Associate Athletic Director Corey Holliday. By the time he graduated in 1993, Holliday held the the school record for career receptions. He played in 47 games in his career and caught a pass in every one. Holliday went on to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers and now supervises UNC's football operations.
Former UNC chancellor Paul Hardin remembered for irrepressible spirit
Paul Hardin, whose over-the-top enthusiasm led him to declare nearly every day the best day ever, every bite of his wife’s cooking the best dish ever and his position as UNC chancellor the best job ever, was celebrated at a memorial service Saturday as a superlative leader, family man and follower of Jesus Christ.

Paul Hardin — a good man who made UNC better
When Paul Hardin slipped away last week, North Carolina lost a brilliant and fine man, a UNC chancellor whose leadership was endearing, its lessons enduring. “This may be audacious, but here’s an idea,” I heard him say so often as a way to prepare us to hear how he might see the future differently. It was the good fortune of us all to learn from him.
UNC introduces free streaming as the best gift for Carolina fans around the world
This sort of thing is a bigger deal at a place like UNC than it would be at other schools. UNC has a ton of alumni and fans living outside of the range of the THSN. I know I wasn’t alone in muting Billy Packer and Dick Vitale in favor of Woody and Mick, but since I moved away from North Carolina in 2003, I haven't been able to listen to a game on the radio.

In the coming months, the NCAA will attempt to reiterate -- and perhaps redefine -- its role as the punitive arm of collegiate athletics. High-profile cases involving UNC and Louisville, both of which have been appealed, could act as deterrents for future rule-breakers or demonstrate the NCAA's limited power and reduced position in the era of the Power Five.

This speaks to the university’s commitment to run a broad-based athletic program, offering more than 700 athletes a chance to compete.

Audio: Q&A with UNC Senior Associate AD Rick Steinbacher
Earlier this week I got a chance to chat with Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Communications Rick Steinbacher. Steinbacher was an All-ACC linebacker under Mack Brown, as well as a former color commentator for the Tar Heel Sports Network. He embodies the things that bring UNC such distinction: passion, humility, community, and greatness.
'Unflappable' John Swofford marks 20 years as ACC commissioner
A former North Carolina quarterback and defensive back, John Swofford is the first to applaud the athletes and coaches who earn championships and awards.
