Daily Tar Heel | Jeremy Vernon: UNC football held their first practice of training camp Friday morning, and a few takeaways were immediately evident. This team is not satisfied with what it accomplished last year and wants to do more. Fixing the run defense that was badly exposed is also a priority.

From The Rumble Seat | Josh Brundage: Our Georgia Tech sister site previews UNC football’s upcoming season and predicts an 8-4 season ahead for the Tar Heels. Do you think they are overly pessimistic about the team’s chances?

News & Observer | Andrew Carter: What does the football team need to focus on now that camp is open? Preparing for Georgia, upping their defensive creativity, and having Mitch Trubisky slide into a leadership role, among other things.

247Sports | Jerry Meyer: Roy Williams is now recruiting Minneapolis power forward Jericho Sims. Sims’ hometown school, University of Minnesota, appears to be in the lead for his services at this point with the Texas Longhorns also showing interest.
