Today’s U | Mark Carroll: The Tar Heels went run heavy against Georgia last week, but if they want to bounce back against Illinois and help Mitch Trubisky regain confidence, they should focus more on passing.
247 Sports | Chris Fisher: Five-star basketball recruit Kevin Knox will host four different head coaches as Roy Williams and UNC are expected to visit the Tampa native in the coming days. John Calipari of Kentuck, Mike Krzyzewski of Duke, and Leonard Hamilton of Florida State will also pay him a visit.
Raleigh & Company | R.L. Bynum: Elijah Hood and T.J. Logan could end up as one of the best running back combinations in program history, and UNC’s offense could benefit from them more if Larry Fedora gave them the ball more often.
Inside Carolina | Evan Chronis: A scouting report on what to expect from Lovie Smith’s Illinois team this weekend. It will be interesting to watch whether UNC’s run defense or the Illini rushing attack wins out.
