MARQUISE WILLIAMS RUMORS

Optimist vs. Pessimist: Bowl Eligibility

The bye week feels like a great time to break out my old column Optimist vs. Pessimist. There’s not a whole lot to be optimistic about the rest of this season, but perhaps a bowl win could inspire a little hope like it did at the end of last season. Naturally, two more wins are needed before Pitt can even think about going to a bowl game. Let’s examine whether or not James Conner...

Williams coming up big, has UNC's offense rolling

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Marquise Williams suddenly has North Carolina's quarterback job to himself. And the Tar Heels' offense is rolling. After spending the first month rotating with backup Mitch Trubisky, Williams has led UNC from start-to-finish in the past two games. With Williams putting up big numbers, the Tar Heels are consistently finishing drives in the end zone to build...

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 Williams...

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 felt like nobody could tell me...

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. Fedora remained non-committal on deciding between redshirt junior...

Four Downs: Youth, QB battle focus of UNC spring game

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- North Carolina's Blue Team ran past the White Team 38-17 in the annual spring game, and all analysis past this point should be prefaced with the caveat that this is only a scrimmage and ultimately doesn't mean much in the grand scheme. It also serves to highlight not only some of the reasons there is a lot of optimism surrounding the Tar Heels moving into next...

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. Spring practice will run for the next few weeks, and will end with the annual Blue...

North Carolina Football: Bowl game possibilities

Marquise Williams (12) will look to lead North Carolina to their first bowl victory since 2010. (Robert Willett/Raleigh News & Observer/MCT) The 2013 North Carolina football regular season ended last weekend with a 27-25 loss to arch-rival Duke in a hard fought, back and forth game. However, all was not lost for the Tar Heels, as they still finished the season with a 6-6 record...
