Trubisky’s improvement; defense needs to adjust

NCAA Football: James Madison at North Carolina Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

GoHeels.com | Lee Pace: While the Carolina offense walked away from the team’s blowout victory over James Madison feeling good about themselves, the Tar Heel defense knows they need to do better. Larry Fedora said that half the team still felt disappointed following the win.

Raleigh & Company | R.L. Bynum: All of the concern about Mitch Trubisky following the loss to Georgia in the first game of the season has faded away after the UNC quarterback has put up back to back strong performances against Illinois and JMU.

Inside Carolina | Greg Barnes: The defense was clearly frustrated with their play in the James Madison game, and felt like they were performing on the field worse than even in practice. The biggest adjustment they may need to make could be a mental one.

Greensboro News & Record | Brant Wilkerson-New: Mitch Trubisky has obviously settled in to his role as the Tar Heels’ starting quarterback, improving a great deal over his performance in the Georgia game. The defense, however, still has a long way to go.
