Not everything is always black and white. One or the other. “It’s this, so it can’t be that.” It’s important to remember, after what was probably the most memorable college football season in North Carolina in recent memory, that multiple things can be true at once. Some examples of what we’re talking about: It’s possible to have a down year, on the field, and still have arguably the best ...

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Mack Brown made no grand promises when he returned to North Carolina four years ago, and instead spent much of his introductory press conference sharing a broad vision of hope. The Tar Heels football program had deteriorated into a mess, one with five victories over two miserable seasons, and of the task ahead Brown cheerfully said, “We love to fix things.” The challenge ...

Nov. 13—North Carolina's ability to keep winning close games, especially on the road, landed it officially in the ACC championship game on Saturday night. Despite the Tar Heels' 9-1 record, their rise in the Associated Press Top 25 remained capped because so few of their wins came over teams with winning records. That changed Saturday night when UNC edged Wake Forest, 36-34, in Winston-Salem ...

And just like that, a season that was once young is all grown up now. Suddenly it has arrived at middle age. Blink, and it’ll all be over. We’ve already reached the halfway point of the 2022 college football season. Doesn’t it feel like yesterday when it all began? Yes, those were innocent days, weren’t they, back when we thought the N.C. State offense might be especially formidable, and that ...

The big plays and gaudy numbers North Carolina’s offense has put up in five games excites fans and scares defensive coordinators. It’s also been the bells and whistles that have hidden the most inconsistent part, which coach Mack Brown is intent on improving. The run game. The flashes have been there like running back Caleb Hood bursting up the middle for a 71-yard score against Appalachian ...

Editor’s note: This story contains reporting about suicides, a topic that will be disturbing to some readers. A UNC-Chapel Hill alumnus and his wife have donated $25 million to the UNC School of Medicine’s Department of Psychiatry to create the UNC Suicide Prevention Institute. The institute will improve care for patients in North Carolina and help health researchers better understand the ...

The question now is not whether Appalachian State has North Carolina’s best college football program — which it clearly does — but how exactly the Mountaineers defied the odds to build it in such an enduring way. And also: why no other school in the state has come close to replicating it. Now keep in mind: a program is different than a team. Nobody has forgotten (or is likely to soon forget) ...

When North Carolina allowed a 21-yard run against Florida A&M last week, which accounted for roughly 40 percent of its total rushing yards, it came down to a defensive lineman having his head on the wrong shoulder of the lineman he was engaged. That’s gap integrity. And for the Tar Heels to leave Boone on Saturday evening with a win against Appalachian State, their defense had better have a ...

Down on King Street and up in the High Country, in the first days of a new semester, Bill Corriher was preparing for something the likes of which he has never seen in 40 years living in this college town, known for its views and for being the home of Appalachian State University. Corriher wasn’t alone. No one here has ever experienced what’s coming. “I feel bad for all the people who are gonna ...
