UNC plans to keep rotating QBs at No. 6 Notre Dame

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) North Carolina has one quarterback who is leading the team in rushing, another with less experience and shaky confidence, and an offense that has been inconsistent through the first five games. And yet, the Tar Heels are sticking with their weekly plan to play both heading into No. 6 Notre Dame on Saturday. ''If we were 5-0 right now, it wouldn't even be a...

Liberty-North Carolina Preview

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina has optimism from a strong finish and motivation from watching a rival's surprise trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. And that has the 23rd-ranked Tar Heels talking about making their own run in the wide-open Coastal Division as they kick off their season Saturday against FCS opponent Liberty. "Once you've put in so much...

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...

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 looks...

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 talent...

Four Factors to determine UNC's starting QB

As a sophomore Williams was thrust into action when senior quarterback Bryn Renner suffered a season ending injury.  Williams brought an added dimension which lifted a struggling Tar Heel running game.  Where Williams struggled in accuracy he made up for it for lengthening plays with his running ability. The new season is around the corner and North Carolina Coach Larry fedora...

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...

College Football’s Top 25 Heading Into 2014-2015

Let’s be honest—releasing a Top 25 for the 2014 college football season in January is pretty ridiculous. There are still many draft decisions, recruit signings, and coaching hires to be made, and then all of spring football and summer workouts before we can really begin to figure out who the nation’s elite teams will be this fall. However, what’s the harm in guessing? Here...

The "What If?" UNC Football Season in Review

As we turn the page into 2014, let's take a look back at the 2013 Carolina football season by playing a game of "What If". The 2013 football season began with a lot of promise for the UNC football team, coming off a share of first place in the Coastal Division in 2012. The Tar Heels returned a veteran quarterback, exciting skill players, and an experienced secondary. However against...

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...
