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...

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.
