Associated Press | Aaron Beard: Defensive coordinator Gene Chizik is focusing on improving the Tar Heels defense by getting them to stop the running game. After seeing improvements last year, there is reason to believe this team can do well on both sides of the ball.

Keeping It Heel | Zack Pearson: After some time playing with the Indiana Pacers in the Summer League, Joel James has decided to continue his career in Japan.

Chapelboro | Avery Trendel: No matter how you look at him, running back Elijah Hood continues to be the most interesting man in Chapel Hill.

Inside Carolina | Greg Barnes: The Tar Heels continue to tough it out and improve, despite having to practice in the grueling heat that we have had to suffer through this summer. It’s been bad enough just walking outside, I can’t imagine playing football for hours a day in this weather.
