Nathan Elliott Named UNC Backup QB, Caleb Henderson to Transfer
Larry Fedora had seen enough to tab Nathan Elliott as the player most likely to step into the starting lineup if Mitch Trubisky is sidelined for any reason. Elliott, a three-star recruit out of Celina, Texas, made a move during spring practice to become Caleb Henderson’s primary competition for the No. 2 spot. The lefty has impressed with his decision-making and quickness.
A thank you to Tar Heel Marquise Williams
As UNC gears up for a new football season with a different quarterback calling out plays, it’s time to remember and appreciate the enigmatic Marquise Williams. Never the most popular or celebrated player in Chapel Hill despite his eye-popping stats or impressive feats of athleticism, Williams led the Tar Heels for roughly two and a half seasons, including last year’s stunning 11-3 record.
UNC’s path to making a New Year’s Six Bowl Game
Last season, North Carolina finished as the highest ranked team not to play in a New Year’s Six bowl game. Thanks to bowl tie ins, UNC got jumped over by Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, and the highest ranked Group of Five team, Houston. In 2016, there’s a chance UNC could rack up wins and get themselves back in that conversation again.

Pittsburgh Steelers sign QB Bryn Renner
The Pittsburgh Steelers made a few roster moves on Saturday and it included signing quarterback Bryn Renner . During the 2015 preseason, Renner completed 43 of 65 pass attempts for 409 yards with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.

Tar Heels emphasize offensive line versatility
A starter from day one on North Carolina's football team, Caleb Peterson has played thousands of snaps at left guard and stands a good chance to move on to the NFL. Still, sliding over just a few feet to the right side of the offensive line can completely change the perspective for the 6-5, 300-pound senior.
Rams DE Robert Quinn leaves Rio 'proud' of sister
Robert Quinn was back with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday, running through drills after spending the last three days in Rio to watch his sister compete in the Olympics.

North Carolina Owns Duke's Home Turf...Literally
Beware, North Carolina student-athletes. You’re on a University of North Carolina field in Chapel Hill, but you may be walking on enemy turf, literally. Casey Carrick chuckled while semi-reluctantly spilling the beans that he, the Director of Athletic Grounds and Turf Management at the University of North Carolina, uses Duke's tainted turf for UNC fields.
Elijah Hood: Star, Scholar, (Eagle) Scout
There are never enough good things to say about Elijah Hood. I have actually never heard a bad word spoken about the man in the three years he has played at UNC and the four years he played at Charlotte Catholic High School. Usually the first thing coaches say about Hood off the field is that he was an Eagle Scout. It stands out. It's note-worthy.
THI Staff Picks: Favorite All-Time UNC Football Uniform
North Carolina’s football uniforms have gone through a lot of changes in recent years, from Butch Davis ushering in the dark blue pants to the black helmets (and uniforms) and chrome helmets in the Larry Fedora era. So, with so many changes, it only seemed right for THI’s staff to offer our take on our favorite uniforms the Tar Heels have worn.
Turner's Take: Snug As A Bug
Johnathan 'Bug' Howard doesn't like it when people assume he's a basketball player, but at 6'5" and 220 pounds, well, he looks like one. That frame and those sure hands have played a vital role in the Tar Heel football offense over the past three seasons, and Howard has one more year to continue to make an impact.
