Complete coverage of North Carolina Tar Heels Football.



Fueling Up The Tar Heels

Carolina football fans know the third floor of the Loudermilk Center for Excellence as the Concourse Club of The Blue Zone, home to premium seating on football Saturdays. But on weekday mornings, the third floor of Loudermilk is home to the Fueling Station, a new nutritional offering for Carolina student-athletes.

Tar Heels Prep For Virginia

After its 48-43 win over Georgia Tech last weekend, Carolina has a little more bounce in its step at practice this week. Head coach Larry Fedora doesn't like to see a lot of ups and downs in attitude from his players throughout the season, preferring that they stay consistent from week to week, win or lose - but he does think the team's confidence is a higher this week.

Carolina Rundown: October 23

Tyler Zeller had 11 points and nine rebounds. Wayne Ellington also scored 11. John Henson had five points and eight rebounds. Danny Green scored five. Ed David had four and four off the bench for the Lakers. Reggie Bullock and Tyler Hansbrough each had a bucket. Baseball America ranks UNC's freshman class sixth in the country and has some very kind words about the Diamond Heels.

Red-hot Marquise Williams hopes UNC can replicate last year's finish

Marquise Williams had helped engineer a 6-1 finish for the Tar Heels last season following a 1-5 start, raising 2014 expectations that made the program's 2-4 start this fall all the more disappointing. Still, with Williams back in charge with five games to go, last year's finish is a good starting point for how UNC can turn things around again.

I Can’t Quit You, UNC Football

Carolina is only 1-2 in ACC play and still very much in contention for the #WideOpenCoastal. I’m telling myself that UNC’s only real “bad loss” was against Virginia Tech and that was when Fedora was still rotating quarterbacks. None of the remaining opponents are as formidable as ECU, Clemson, or Notre Dame. In other words I am in full blown relapse mode. I can’t quit you UNC football.

Before achieving stardom with the St. Louis Rams of the NFL, Robert Quinn overcame a brain tumor during high school on the way to achieving his dream as a standout defensive end at North Carolina.

Scouting the Schedule: A Look at UNC's Remaining Opponents

At 3-4, UNC would have to win three of its last five games to secure bowl eligibility. The good news is there are no monsters on the schedule like there were in the first six games; on the other hand, there are no real lemons either. Here is a look at how the remaining five teams on UNC's schedule made out this week and where their seasons stand:

UVa focused on stopping UNC's Marquise Williams

The Cavaliers will need another dynamite effort on defense Saturday as their bowl hopes hang in the balance. UNC quarterback Marquise Williams, who ranks 17th in total offense at 318 yards per game, is coming to Charlottesville and is playing the best football of his career. The Virginia defense has been among the best in the country, though, and Williams will have his hands full.

Carolina Rundown: October 22

Roy Williams will return to Lawrence on Monday for a celebration of Allen Fieldhouse. 11 points and six boards for Ed Davis off the bench last night for the Lakers. Harrison Barnes had 10 and six. Reggie Bullock had a bucket for the Clippers. Just one Tar Heel on Phil Steele's midseason All-ACC football team, as Landon Turner earned a second-team selection.

T.J. Logan key to UNC turnaround

After last Saturday’s win against Georgia Tech, UNC now controls its own destiny to win the ACC Coastal Division and gain a berth in the conference championship game for the first time in school history. But if the Tar Heels are going to win their final five games of 2014, they are going to need a repeat of the late-2013 performance put on by running back T.J. Logan.

Extra Points: One And Counting

Good news for the Tar Heels is that Virginia's roster evolution over the last decade shows it currently has only three players from the state of North Carolina, and one of them is a kicker and neither of the others is on the two-deep. That's a pleasant development indeed given Virginia's proclivity the last three decades to harvest players from south of the border.

UNC’s offense learning to share ball

North Carolina’s football team has begun trying a new tactic in recent weeks: using running backs to run. While quarterback Marquise Williams continues to be the focal point of the offense and put up gaudy statistics against both Notre Dame and Georgia Tech, 898 yards of total offense, the offense is finding a bit of balance, as well.

Mack Brown’s First 1-On-1, In-Depth Interview Since Leaving the Sidelines

Some were mad that I left, but I thought that was a compliment. And in reality we never thought we’d leave Chapel Hill. We loved it there. We still have our friends in North Carolina that we’re very close to and talk to all the time. And I would also be lying if I said we weren’t disappointed that UNC didn’t proactively come out and say, ‘We want you to stay here for good, no matter what it takes,’ instead of just reacting after-the-fact to the Texas interest.
