Four Downs: UNC uses third-quarter run to get past Liberty

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- The biggest question going into No. 23 North Carolina's season-opener against Liberty, seemingly, was what the final margin of victory would be for the Tar Heels. After UNC got off to a quick 7-0 start, that still seemed to be the case. But Liberty took the lead twice -- 15-14 in the second, and then 22-21 in the third -- before the Tar Heels could pull away...

Trubisky, Williams fight it out for UNC's starting quarterback spot

It wasn't supposed to be this way. Four-star quarterback Mitch Trubisky committed to North Carolina as a highly-touted recruit out of Ohio in 2012. At that time, Bryn Renner was in his first full season as UNC's starting quarterback and would be graduated after 2013. Trubisky, in theory, would slide right in to the starting job after taking a redshirt season. But then Marquise...

Marquise Williams relishes the competition for UNC's starting QB job

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The questions about UNC quarterback Marquise Williams' fundamentals have swirled since he took his first snap, and they'll continue to -- but his throwing motion has the endorsement of one person that carries a good bit of weight. "That's Peyton Manning. He's the greatest in the game," Williams said. "When he gave me that talk, I...

UNC Football: Continued controversy

With spring practice now behind them, North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora spoke with reporters Wednesday during an ACC teleconference. Although Fedora spoke about many topics during his time on the call, there was one thing in particular that stood out – it seems the quarterback controversy is here to stay.

UNC Football: Spring practice begins

The University of North Carolina football team has begun spring practice in anticipation for their 2014 regular season. Despite the fact that the Tar Heels will not play their first game until August 29th against Liberty, the practice and reps the players take now will be vital once the season begins.

North Carolina Football: Not all is lost in light of Renner’s absence

After North Carolina defeated NC State on Saturday 27-19, I discussed how having two quarterbacks was better than one for the 2013 Tar Heels. This was due to the fact that fifth year senior Bryn Renner and redshirt sophomore Marquise Williams complemented each other perfectly while running the offense. Sophomore quarterback Marquise Williams will start the last four games of the...
