NORTH CAROLINA RUMORS

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...

North Carolina Football: Is Larry Fedora the Next James Franklin?

The program is picked to finish first in the ACC Coastal division, which wins them a trip to play FSU in the conference title game. The running game appears to be strong and the defense solid.

UNC Drops First Exhibition Game in the Bahamas

Okay, everybody panic! UNC dropped the first of two exhibition games in the Bahamas, losing to the Providence Storm 84-83 in a manner eerily similar to the way the Heels lost to Belmont last November.  Here is a short recap via UNC: Ernest Saunders dropped in a three-pointer from the right wing with 18.1 seconds to play to cap a 14-5 run and give the Providence (Bahamas) Storm...

North Carolina Football Preview

It would have been difficult to imagine UNC having a successful season based on the first six games of the 2013 season. A 1-5 start made the possibility of a bowl game very bleak. But that's why you keep playing the games. After the 1-5 start, the Tar Heels won five straight to become bowl eligible, ultimately finishing the season 7-6 after winning the Belk Bowl. This season...

Photo: A Trio Of North Carolina Basketball Alums, NBA Players Worked Out Together In Miami

If North Carolina put together an NBA team featuring only former Tar Heels, the squad would be quite competitive. That’s, of course, not allowed.  Instead, the various North Carolina alums playing in the NBA have to compete against one another on separate teams. They can still work out together in the offseason, though. That’s what former teammates Kendall Marshall, Harrison...

ACC Countdown: No. 5 North Carolina

North Carolina started last season dreadfully, losing five of its first six games with the only win coming against Middle Tennessee State. But the Tar Heels rebounded nicely against a much friendlier back half of the schedule and won five of its final six. Can the Tar Heels prove that the end of last year wasn't a fluke? Will they be able to answer all the questions about their...

North Carolina Tar Heels Are Now College Football Favorites Thanks To Their Ability To Practice Upside Down

It’s often said that football is comprised of three aspects – offense, defense and special teams – but the truly great teams know that’s not true. It’s also a game of gravity…and the North Carolina Tar Heels have absolutely mastered the art of gravity, as evidenced by this photo uploaded by UNC’s Inside Carolina: QB/WR passing drills pic.twitter.com/IijsnWXwB7 — InsideCarolina...

North Carolina football wants to break through the 8-5 ceiling

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- There aren't a lot of constants in college football, except change. But since the ACC went to Divisional play, either the Atlantic or the Coastal has been a Division filled with self-cannibalization. Right now, it's the Coastal Division's turn. And North Carolina (voted No. 23 in the preseason USA TODAY Coaches' Poll) aims to take advantage of...

Obligatory Kennedy Meeks Windmill Dunk Video

This comes via Kennedy Meeks' Instragram and delivers visual evidence of both Meeks' new-found dunking ability and his chiseled frame. I am guessing if ESPN did a top 50 list of strength and conditioning coaches in college basketball Jonas Sahratian would be at the top of the list. Joe Giglio of the News and Observer raises an interesting point on preseason ACC predictions...

This Short UNC Basketball Hype Video Will Get Tar Heels Fans Ready For 2014

It’s undeniable that North Carolina basketball had a weird 2013-2014 season. Early in the year, the Tar Heels seemingly traded huge wins over top-ranked programs for head-scratching losses to inferior opponents. They eventually put it together, ripping off 11 straight ACC wins between January and March. But in the end, UNC bowed out in its second game of the NCAA Tournament, falling...

North Carolina Academic Scandal Growing Uglier by the Day

North Carolina could be in serious trouble soon in light of recent allegations from former Tar Heels forward Rashad McCants that he took fake class to stay eligible while at UNC. In an interview with ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” with Andy Kaz, McCants reiterated his accusations of tutors writing papers and players receiving high grades in classes where they were never required...
