UNC Football: Fedora in the spotlight is good, or not?

Head Coach Larry Fedora in Kenan (Picture by Tar Nation on Facebook) 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...

UNC Football: Can it be as good as basketball?

For as long as I can remember, and I have been watching UNC Football and basketball going on over a third of a century now, one of the theories I have heard a lot has been… North Carolina is a basketball school that also has a football program. When you look at the results of the two sports you would have to agree, even if legendary coach Dean Smith once said something to the affect...

UNC RB Giovani Bernard to turn pro

With respect to Mr. Football in College Station, Texas, Giovani Bernard would have provided considerable competition for the Heisman Trophy next season if he hadnt opted to leave North Carolina for the NFL. Bernard is that good. But the 5-foot-10, 205-pound tailback wont get the chance to beat out Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel now that he has entered his name in the 2013 NFL...

UNC Football: The farewell tour for Bernard?

After North Carolina beat N.C. State last week with what I call “The Return” by red shirt sophomore Giovani Bernard I doubt that there should be any excuse not to go see UNC football in their last few games. But, if you still need something to get you to Kenan Stadium, the beautiful facility that the Tar Heels call home, here it is… get to the games versus Georgia Tech (11...

Tar Heels' Bernard deserving of recognition

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Giovani Bernard isnt going to win the Heisman Trophy in December, but finding a better and more thrilling player anywhere in the nation might be akin to that whole needle-in-a-haystack deal. Bernard is that good, and hes that underrated. Look no further than North Carolinas 43-35 victory over NC State on Saturday in which Bernard raced 74 yards into the end...

Giovani Bernard, UNC Beat N.C. State on Last Second Punt Return Touchdown (Video)

N.C. State learned a valuable lesson Saturday: don't punt to Giovani Bernard when the score is tied late in the fourth quarter. With 30 seconds left and the score tied 35-35, the Wolfpack not-so-wisely chose to punt to the Tarheels' star, sophomore running back. Bernard took the punt back 73 yards for a touchdown, and the win. The touchdown was Bernard...

North Carolina Football: A plea to the fan base

Yesterday in Chapel Hill began the Fedora era for the North Carolina football program. It began with a 62 to nothing shut out of FCS foe Elon. It began with some excellent play by the team, led by star running back Giovani Bernard, who scored in everyway he could, through the ground, through the air and even on a punt return, and quarterback Bryn Renner, who hit fourteen different...
