Heels in the Pro’s
If you love UNC Football and follow its former players at the next level there is now way that the stories about Giovani Bernard could have slipped you by. Heck, he has been doing so well in the pre season that Yahoo Sports did a video/article about him climbing up in the fantasy world. You know you are doing something right when that is happening!
On the other hand, still with the Cinci franchise, the news is not as good for two other former Tar Heels. From an article that I read yesterday both tight end Richard Quinn and wide out Jheranie Boyd did not make it pass the first cut. Especially for Quinn, who was a second draft pick in `09, this is definitely not how the young men hoped their season, if not career, would be ending up.
This should be a stern reminder, not just for players coming out of Chapel Hill, but for anyone that plays college sports, that the next step is not a guarantee. And that while in college it would be extremely wise for all lucky enough ...

Before going with the post, let me just say, that...
Jonathan Cooper (Heels in the Pro’s)
How many times have you heard the phrase “in football you are but one play from an injury”? Unfortunately for the Arizona Cardinals and their first round pick, former UNC offensive line man Jonathan Cooper, that phrase came calling last night. And it is not a minor thing, as the Cards’ coach, Bruce Arians, said… “Right now it’s looking...

As I always say, one of the best part about being a non professional blogger is that I get to read a ton of stuff about my favorite school. Today was no difference as I stumbled upon a piece on USA Today’s web site, which talked about “football coaches you need to know now”. One of the five mentioned was UNC...
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - Eric Ebron has the strength to block up front for North Carolina, the speed to sprint by defenders after the catch and the versatility to be an all-over-the-field threat. It's why coach Larry Fedora is pushing his tight end for a big season in the Tar Heels' no-huddle offense.
Game week has arrived and the Tar Heels have broken camp to begin preparation for the opener versus South Carolina in Columbia.
The post-camp depth chart can be found here.
There really isn't too much here outside a couple of question marks. Only one of the five offensive line positions lists a "OR" for the starter with Jon Heck, Kiaro Holts and Nick Appel in the mix...
