DT Demetri McGill looks to set up UNC visit
McGill said he has offers from East Carolina, North Carolina, Old Dominion and Temple. He wants to visit ECU soon and hopes to set up an official to UNC on the 25th. “Everything should fall into place there,” he said. “I’ve just accepted [Maryland’s decision]. I’ll find somewhere else to go.” (Baltimore Sun)

New documentary follows Andrew Wiggins
Andrew Wiggins hasn’t even committed to an NCAA program for next season yet he’s already being pinned as the top prospect heading into the 2014 NBA draft. There’s more to the future of Canadian basketball than Wiggins and there’s more to Wiggins than what he’s able to do on the court and that’s what Drew Ebanks and Jay Irving wanted to show in their new documentary ‘Huntington Hopefuls’ which was released online Wednesday morning.

ACC places 3rd among most valuable conferences
Even after signing a new $3.6 billion TV deal with ESPN the ACC was hounded with realignment rumors. And though Maryland eventually announced its departure for the Big Ten, the conference offered a strong response by adding Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Louisville and non-football Notre Dame. (Forbes.com)

Scouting the ACC’s 2013 quarterbacks
In great shape: North Carolina – Bryn Renner returns. He was No. 3 in the ACC last season in passing average per game (279.7), and he was No. 3 in passing efficiency. He finished with 3,356 yards, 28 touchdowns and seven interceptions. (ESPN.com)

Lucas: Let It Snow
With possible winter weather in the forecast, schoolchildren across the Triangle will be checking school closings tonight. Maybe it’ll snow. Maybe schools will be closed tomorrow, maybe they’ll operate on a two-hour delay, and maybe nothing will happen at all. Basketball fans can hope that whatever happens, it won’t impact Saturday’s noon tipoff against Maryland. (GoHeels.com)

Are We There Yet? Part I (excerpt from 1993 national title book)
The record will forever show Carolina won the NCAA championship on that magical night in New Orleans. But for 11 of us, the road to the national title started the night in Lexington, Kentucky, a year earlier when Ohio State bounced us out of the 1992 Mideast Regional. Some losses are more difficult to take than others. (Chapelboro.com)

Hoopsbag: North Carolina edition
What this team is missing most is a confident, well-rounded big man. For instance, put a Tyler Zeller on this team, and it opens things up more for forward James Michael McAdoo. It gives Marcus Paige a confident target in the post. It allows Roy Williams the more balanced inside-out game that he wants, and opens things up for all of the 3-point shooters. (ESPN.com)

Phil Ford: Carolina ‘Building Confidence’
No, I wasn’t surprised what happened at Florida State. I’ve played, coached and watched so much Carolina Basketball over the years — I’m never surprised at what the Tar Heels can do. Now, I knew that would be a tough win down there. That’s a good basketball team, with great guards and good wing players. They’re well-coached, and it’s always fun in Tallahasse. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC Football: A Salute To Gene Robinson
Let me just begin this article by saying this: Chapel Hill was not bowl eligible this season. Gene Robinson was a returning senior with a first year coach and a completely new defensive scheme facing him. He still had 43 tackles in 11 games. That speaks volumes to the type of player and man he is. (Keeping It Heel)

UNC Football Recruiting: Heels Could Have Dynamic DE Duo In Carl Lawson, Da’Shawn Hand
The North Carolina Tar Heels have a rich tradition of producing big time defensive ends from Lawrence Taylor to Julius Peppers and Quinton Coples to name a few. Larry Fedora has a chance to usher in two top flight ends who have UNC on their list could make for one of the most dynamic duos in Carolina history if Fedora is able to reel them both in.
