Larry Fedora Wednesday Teleconference Notes

Larry Fedora: "We are looking forward to getting back on the field against an exceptional football team down in Clemson. Dabo has put together a great football team, especially with the eight seniors they have on the defensive side of the ball. They are really playing with a lot of confidence and flying around. We are really looking forward to getting back out on the field and playing again." (Carolina Blue)

Opportunity Awaits for Kiaro Holts

UNC junior tackle Kiaro Holts has struggled with injuries throughout his career at North Carolina, but the once-prized recruit will likely get a chance to showcase his talents at right tackle at Clemson on Saturday. UNC head coach Larry Fedora has repeatedly cited his offensive line as the position group that he is least comfortable with. (Inside Carolina)

Current Tar Heels Know Little of Clemson Rivalry

Since the ACC expanded and went to two divisions with Carolina going to the Coastal Division and Clemson to the Atlantic, that annual showdown has been reduced to an occasional skirmish. After the Tar Heels traveled to Clemson in 2006, they went four years without playing. Now they play once again, with kick-off set for 7 p.m. in Death Valley. The Tigers don’t come to Chapel Hill again until 2019. (UNC Lettermen)

Winterville billboard sends message to UNC fans

A message to all the Carolina Tar Heel fans after ECU's big win Saturday is now up in lights, but who put it there is still a mystery. The electronic billboard off Vernon White Road and Highway 11 in Winterville flashes the score of the Pirate's win of 70-41 with the hashtag,"Beneath Who?" (WITN)

Larry Fedora Radio Show Quotes

What right now is concerning you the most on the defensive side of the football? Larry Fedora: “Let’s be honest. What isn’t right now? The biggest thing for me right now is to make sure that those guys are all right mentally; that’s the main thing. They have to get their confidence back and get themselves going again and play good ball.” (Inside Carolina)

Young O-line face tough test at Clemson

UNC will likely be starting its third different offensive line grouping in four games against the most talented and experienced defensive line they are expected to face all season when they play Clemson Saturday night. Heading into their game against the Tigers, the Tar Heels will most likely be without the entire right side of their starting offensive line. (Carolina Blue)

Switzer, Tar Heels Still Searching For Spark

UNC sophomore wide receiver and return specialist Ryan Switzer threw a touchdown pass last weekend – that’s one more score than he’s achieved with his legs so far in the 2014 season. And although Switzer places second in receiving yards for the Tar Heels, the going has not been as easy in year two for the player who electrified fans in his freshman campaign with trademark elusiveness.

Julius Peppers forces and recovers fumble against Lions (video)

That was Julius Peppers’ cue, getting around the right tackle rather easily and wrapping up Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. Instead of driving Stafford to the ground, Peppers realized the opportunity he had, stuck his hand in and ripped the ball out of Stafford’s grasp. (FanSided)

Video: UNC Football Tuesday Post-Practice Interviews

UNC junior wide receiver T.J. Thorpe and sophomore offensive tackle John Ferranto talk about the football team's transition from ECU to Clemson after practice on September 23, 2014. (View Video...)

San Diego Chargers sign Kevin Reddick, Shaun Draughn

NFL teams would prefer their Tuesdays quiet. If only. The Chargers made 10 transactions this one. Inside linebacker Kevin Reddick, running back Shaun Draughn and practice-squad outside linebacker Cordarro Law were added to the 53-man roster, as San Diego performed needed roster maintenance following a brutal injury stretch.

Broncos' Marvin Austin plays to honor father

Broncos defensive tackle Marvin Austin played Sunday, just two days after his father, Marvin Sr., 49, died from injuries he suffered in a car crash this past Sunday. “I know he was looking down," Austin said after the loss. (

Clemson Looks to Reverse Losing Trend

Perhaps UNC head coach Larry Fedora said it best when he called this Clemson football team “really good.” The Tigers opened the season with high expectations, but got off on the wrong foot by getting outplayed in a 45-21 loss to then-No. 12 Georgia. A mere two weeks later, the Tigers suffered a crushing overtime loss to top-ranked Florida State. (Inside Carolina)

Clemson, UNC coaches to wear Coach to Cure MD patch

The Clemson and UNC coaching staffs will be wearing the Coach to Cure MD patches this Saturday, as will all ACC coaching staffs. The special arm patch is to raise awareness of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This is the seventh year of Coach to Cure MD, a partnership between the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and Parent Project MD. (TigerNet)

Opponent Preview: Clemson

A week after a trip to Greenville the Heels are once more on the road to open ACC play in a tough game in Death Valley at Clemson. The Heels open up ACC play against a good Clemson team that will test the Heels in different ways. Clemson is the best team that Heels will have played so far this season. The Tigers have more talent than ECU and San Diego State. (Tar Heel Blog)

Dabo Swinney Previews North Carolina

Another tough challenge this week. Only thing being worse than 1-2 is 1-3. UNC is a dangerous team. They are coming off of a really tough loss like we are. I know people look at the score and say goodness gracious. Football is crazy sport and crazy things happen. This is a really good football team. Biggest thing for us is to finish. (CU Tigers)
