North Carolina Football: Senior Day this Saturday

The junior tight end will forego his senior season to head to the next level First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, even if it could feel more like an early Christmas, as UNC basketball knocked off #3 Louisville last Sunday, while North Carolina football defeated Old Dominion 80 to 20 to get to a 6 and 5 record and become bowl eligible. Now, with one game left, the Tar Heels...

UNC Football: Stay classy fanbase

In the many years, or should I say decades, that I been a sports fan I have always enjoyed a good discussion, whether or not I agree with it. Before I go on with this post, let me repeat that… a good discussion, not a bashing, not a one way attack, a discussion. And secondly, this time this post is more as a fan than a blogger. With that said… Things such as… Should the coaching...

Are There Issues in the Locker Room at UNC?

In the wake of UNC's debacle against East Carolina, senior tailback A.J. Blue had some brutally honest things to say to the media about how the Tar Heels played and his teammates approach to the game. Via Lauren Brownlow at Fox Sports Carolinas Senior tailback A.J. Blue is a fifth-year senior, and he's been through quite a bit himself. His teammates respect him. Before Fedora...

UNC Football: The Recap… East Carolina

Maybe the only good thing today in Kenan stadium was the weather! As I do most every game that I do a recap of, I watched twice the game before talking about it. The one between North Carolina (1-3) and East Carolina (3-1) has almost left me speechless. Not so much the score, with the guest winning 55 to 31. The first win by the Pirates in almost forty years by ECU in Kenan Stadium...

UNC Football: Too many backs?

With so much talent, will there be enough snaps to go around From the end of the season last year, until the announcement yesterday, I was hoping and believing that A.J. Blue, the fifth year senior who changed positions from QB to RB while in Chapel Hill, would be the one starting for head coach Larry Fedora at the running back spot. That role is now taken by sophomore Romar Morris...

After difficult path, UNC's Blue playing for family

As the more powerful counterpart to North Carolina tailback Giovani Bernard last year, A.J. Blue is comfortable slamming into defenders and pushing his way ahead when he runs, shedding would-be tacklers with a well-placed stiff arm or pure brute force. Late in the third quarter of an October home game against Virginia Tech last season, Blue broke through the middle of the North...

Heels still a work of progress in spring game

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Led by third-year starting quarterback Bryn Renner, North Carolina's Blue team clobbered the White team, 34-10, in the Tar Heels' annual spring football game on Saturday at Kenan Stadium. UNC played two quarters as if it was a real game, though the punts included just the snapper and punter. The last two quarters were played with a running clock before...

UNC focused on filling hole left by Gio Bernard

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - As Larry Fedora walked off the field following North Carolinas first live scrimmage of the spring Thursday night in Charlotte, N.C., his running back, A.J. Blue, passed by on his way to media obligations. The Tar Heels' head coach cracked at his veteran tailback that no one should be allowed to talk to the media that dropped his ball. Both burst into big smiles...
