Confidence is common denominator of UNC CB duo

Brian Walker is talkative on the field, while Des Lawrence stays quiet. When it comes to tackling a big running back, Walker prefers to go for a knockout blow while Lawrence tries to take him down by the legs. But Walker and Lawrence are incredibly similar when it comes to perhaps the most important aspect of being a defensive back — they’re both extremely confident. (Durham Herald-Sun)

Ethan Farmer’s Status Still in Question

UNC senior defensive tackle Ethan Farmer’s status remains in limbo at the midway point of training camp. UNC head coach Larry Fedora told reporters following practice on Thursday there was no timetable in place for clarification on Farmer’s eligibility. A source confirmed to that Farmer’s eligibility concerns are academic-related. (Inside Carolina)

2014 Season Preview: Quarterbacks

Whatever happens with the quarterback position, the fact that Larry Fedora has two quarterbacks who fit his spread offense is a factor that should not be overlooked. Bryn Renner left UNC as one of the best passers in Tar Heel history. However he was also never a perfect fit for Fedora's system. Marquise Williams and Mitch Trubisky both are and by extension the offense should start running on all cylinders. (Tar Heel Blog)

Ohio State drops football series with North Carolina in 2017 and 2018

Ohio State football will no longer play a scheduled home-and-home series against North Carolina in 2017 and 2018, and a replacement should be named soon. North Carolina announced the series cancellation on Wednesday, and Ohio State's Martin Jarmond, the executive associate athletic director tasked with making the football schedules, confirmed it to (

Undersized Carolina Defense Offering Speed, Energy

There may be a concerning lack of size and power, but the UNC defense is making up for it with speed and energy as the Tar Heels continue to hit the practice field hard in preparation for the Liberty contest Aug. 30. Losing defensive end Kareem Martin to the NFL leaves a noticeable void for the Carolina big men up front to fill. And what’s more, those ‘big men’ aren’t all that big. (

T.J. Yates returns to adoring fans

When the Atlanta Falcons' team plane descended into Houston, backup quarterback T.J. Yates felt a little bit like he was coming home. Weird, though, because Atlanta actually is where he's from, and where he currently works. But those three seasons with the Texans got him very familiar with this place, and got fans very familiar with him. On the practice field Wednesday, fans greeted him happily. (

The Tar Heels will play host to the Bears on Sept. 2, 2017, and then play on the road in Berkeley on Sept. 1, 2018. The Cal series replaces the Ohio State home-and-home series, which was cancelled.

Tar Heels aim to win wide-open Coastal division race

North Carolina has optimism from a strong finish and motivation from watching a rival's surprise trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. And that has the Tar Heels talking about making their own run in the wide-open Coastal Division. The Tar Heels (7-6, 4-4 ACC) say they have the players to keep coach Larry Fedora's no-huddle offense humming. (WRAL Sports Fan)

The Top 10 Most Underrated College Football QBs in 2014

Marquise Williams, North Carolina (Jr.): Williams acquitted himself admirably in his first chance as a starting college quarterback. Over the final seven games of the season, he rushed for 441 yards, threw for 1,308 yards, scored 17 total touchdowns and led the Tar Heels to a 6-1 record. The offense averaged over 40 points per game during that span and he should only continue to get better this fall. (Athlon Sports)

USA Today College Football Countdown | No. 27: North Carolina

UNC remains hopeful that last season's defensive surge carries over to the fall, giving the Heels the sort of offense-defense balance needed to not just claim the Coastal Division but potentially hang with Florida State or Clemson – well, Florida State – in the conference title game. In specific, the staff is hopeful a reworked, retooled, largely inexperienced and somewhat star-free defensive front can carry the load throughout ACC play. (USA Today)

North Carolina Football Season Preview

Best-case scenario for 2014: Larry Fedora finds his quarterback, the offensive line jells quickly, the rushing defense improves dramatically from a year ago and UNC finally finds some consistency overall. The schedule won’t be an easy one, but if the Tar Heels can get off to a quicker start this year than last, they remain a strong contender for the Coastal Division. (
