Turner's Take: Unwritten

There is a column to be written on this Tar Heel football senior class, sixteen players who either comprised Larry Fedora’s first UNC recruiting class or had just completed a redshirt year when he arrived in December 2011. If Fedora and his staff are the architects of one of the most stunning turnarounds in the school’s football history, then these student-athletes are the ones wearing the hard hats. (GoHeels.com)

Why the CFP committee is overlooking North Carolina

North Carolina finally cracked the top 25 of the College Football Playoff rankings, but at 8-1 and fresh off a 35-point victory over a previously well-regarded Duke team, the Tar Heels’ No. 23 ranking is probably still a bit worse than they might’ve hoped. So what’s keeping UNC from getting any love from the CFP selection committee? The answer is probably the schedule. (ESPN.com)

Fedora and Chizik Discuss Focus, Miami

Larry Fedora on not getting distracted by potentially winning the Coastal Division: "We’re playing Miami. That’s it, that’s all we are worried about. I promise you, all I want is to win this game. I know if we just take care of our business, the thing that we can’t control won’t really matter. We just control the things that we can control and that’s all we focus on." (Carolina Blue)

North Carolina wants more from defense

While it seems almost all rosy for the North Carolina football team these days, players on defense said they’re a bit squeamish. That’s because during the eight-game winning streak holes have developed. Despite the 66-31 drubbing of Duke on Saturday, it matched the most points allowed by the Tar Heels this season.

North Carolina in position to demand national attention

After a six-win season in 2014 for the Tar Heels, expectations weren't exactly high for the program going into 2015 in a Coastal Division that featured a favored Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' team that had just won the Orange Bowl. Now riding an eight-game winning streak, the Tar Heels are in the driver's seat to represent their division in the ACC Championship Game (FOX Sports)

UNC Moving Past Defensive Lapse

No. 17 North Carolina’s refreshed defense took its first significant step back during Saturday’s win over Duke. “It was the first time that there were three or four glaring big plays that reared its ugly head,” defensive coordinator Gene Chizik said following Wednesday’s practice. “The standard for our defense is certainly not that.” (Inside Carolina)

North Carolina quarterback Marquise Williams on a star trek

How would you feel if you showed up for work one day knowing that every decision you made was going to be wrong? That’s the dilemma defensive coordinators face when they take on UNC’s Marquise Williams. The senior dual-threat quarterback is the personification of Star Trek’s Kobayashi Maru, a test designed purposely to have no correct answer. (FOX Sports)

Tar Heel Student-Athletes Visit UNC Burn Center

Each fall, UNC student-athletes gather for a special trip that always proves to be a highlight of the Carolina Outreach calendar. The annual UNC Burn Center Visit on Nov. 6 brought together student-athletes from the football, track and field, cross country, and women’s lacrosse teams to visit patients and hear from physicians at one of the state’s outstanding health care facilities.

The F.R.E.A.K.S. Show

The Carolina receiving corps is as deep as any unit across the country. UNC has had seven different players lead a game in receiving yards. That's part of the reason wideout coach Gunter Brewer calls his group "The Freaks." Although, the coach has been using the nickname for his players ever since he coached a certain hall of famer at Marshall. (Carolina Blue)

The top 10 best uniforms/helmets in college football

8. North Carolina Tar Heels Carolina blue is one of the best shades in all of college sports. So that alone makes UNC football’s uniforms great. But this year’s small addition of argyle to the Tar Heels’ jerseys, helmet, and pants was brilliant. (USA Today)

UNC-Miami Preview: Canes Building Momentum

Miami (6-3, 3-2 ACC) comes to Chapel Hill with the most momentum it's had all season, reeling off two straight wins under interim head coach Larry Scott after the firing of Al Golden. Miami also remains in the hunt for the ACC Coastal Division title. A win Saturday would move the Hurricanes within one game of the division-leading Tar Heels while owning the head-to-head tiebreaker.

Veterans & Football: The Parallels Are Many

Order. Structure. Punctuality. Chain of command. Teamwork. Planning, and execution. Persevering through pain, discomfort and difficult circumstances. The parallels are significant between the military and a football team. “We had a saying in the Seals, ‘Seal training is easy, all you do is never quit,’” says three-decade Navy Seal Mike Argo, a letterman on UNC's defensive line in 1978-79. (GoHeels.com)

Mack Hollins catches his opportunities

You’d think teams would know better by now. But on Saturday, against Duke, there went Mack Hollins again, streaking by the defense for another long touchdown. Week after week, Hollins has torched UNC opponents, with seven touchdowns in his past six games. The junior receiver is tied for second in the nation in yards-per-catch with 26.3. Almost every time he catches the ball, it’s a huge play. (Daily Tar Heel)

Shakeel Rashad: "Find a way to get the ball back to the offense"

By now everything has been written about North Carolina's offensive masterpiece against Duke. The Tar Heels scored nine touchdowns on the way to a 66-31 demolishing of the Blue Devils. In speaking with Tar Heel defenders after Saturday's game, it was clear the defense has main one goal: get the ball back to the offense. (Carolina Blue)
