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 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...

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...

Bryn Renner visits Minnesota Vikings

Former North Carolina Tar Heels’ quarterback Bryn Renner had a very disappointing ending to what was a fairly solid career. Renner suffered a shoulder injury that limited him to seven games in 2013 and he missed the final six of the Tar Heels’ season. After throwing just two passes as a freshman, Renner became the Tar Heels’ starter in 2011 and was up-and-down with the good...

North Carolina Football: Fedora and Texas

Almost three months ago I wrote on this blog a post entitled “Could UNC be done by Coach Mac again?” Talking about the fact that if the former North Carolina coach, at the University of Texas now, was to either retire or let go, our own head coach Larry Fedora, could be looked at as a replacement. Well, three months later, and let the rumors begin and the carousel spin. Last...

UNC will rely on backup signal-caller Marquise Williams to right the ship, as the Heels need to win three of their last four...

North Carolina Football: For Renner the season is over

How does the old saying go… “Beware of what you wish for, as you might just get it”. This is how some of the North Carolina fan base must feel now that fifth year senior Bryn Renner has been ruled done for the season, meaning, done as a Tar Heel, due to the shoulder injury that he suffered in Saturday’s win over rival NC State. From an article on Inside Carolina Renner spoke...

North Carolina Football: The story after the rivalry game

The week leading up to the game between North Carolina and NC State some trash talk went back and forth, but for the most part, it was more the media reminding both fan bases that this was a rivalry game. Once the game was over, which the Tar Heels won, the team from Chapel Hill decided to go and stand at mid field. That brought one of the media outlets to report of what the NC State...

North Carolina Football: Two quarterbacks better than one

The 2013 North Carolina football team is proving the old saying that “having one quarterback is better than having two” is downright false. For the third consecutive game UNC rotated quarterbacks Bryn Renner and Marquise Williams and the offense continued to improve. Wide reciever Quinshad Davis (left) hauls in a touchdown during the second quarter of the 27-19 victory for North...

Four Downs: UNC gets much-needed second win

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- For UNC this week, there was a sense of urgency to get its second win of the season (and first against a BCS-conference team). Yes, the Tar Heels were 1-5 heading into this game against Boston College. And yes, they needed this win against Boston College badly. Particularly after a disappointing last-second loss (almost literally) to No. 7 Miami a week ago. Wake...

After the hello he just typed out one sentence, which was… “is this game against ECU a must win game for Carolina?” The answer about this game, which is also the Military Appreciation one for the 2013 season, from me was even shorter than the email I received, since all I said was: “Yes”. The reasoning behind it is a bit...

If we look at the FBS teams this season there are still 29 programs without a loss. Five of them are in the Atlantic Coast Conference, that would be close to 28% of the teams. For North...
