ACC Power Rankings: November 12 - ACCSports.com
Just call me the Sisyhphus of power rankings. Every week I set about the task of trying to bring order to the ACC. And every week, thanks to the chaos that ensues on Saturday, my efforts prove fruitless. Seriously, how am I supposed to make sense of the section of this conference that lies somewhere in the vast gap between Clemson and Wake Forest? Anyone? . Anyone?

Haase get pleasant surprise from old boss Roy Williams - AL.com
UAB head men's basketball coach Jerod Haase was in for a treat when he took the court at Bartow Arena 30 minutes before the Blazers' first regular season game against Young Harris College. On the Blazers' bench was Roy Williams, the North Carolina head coach who coached Haase at Kansas and mentored him through the years as an assistant at Kansas and UNC.

Heels have no 'time to cry' about loss to Tech - Durham Herald-Sun
The North Carolina football team usually spends Sundays watching film from its most recent game. That didn't happen after Saturday's 68-50 loss to Georgia Tech - not because it would have been demoralizing, but because there wasn't time. The Tar Heels (6-4, 3-3 ACC) have a short workweek before playing at Virginia on Thursday (7:30 p.m., ESPN). Read more: The Herald-Sun - Heels have no time 'to cry about' loss to Jackets.

UNC ranked No. 11 in both polls - ESPN.com
North Carolina, which opened the season with wins over Gardner-Webb and Florida Atlantic, was ranked 11th in both polls released Monday. The Tar Heels moved up one slot in the USA Today coaches poll (where they were 12th last week), and stood pat in the Associated Press rankings.

ACC Week 12 sneak peek - ESPN.com
North Carolina (6-4, 3-3) at Virginia (4-6, 2-4), ESPN, 7:30 p.m. Let's put it simply: Virginia is hot, and North Carolina is not. The Hoos come into the game on a two-game winning streak, while the Tar Heels have a very short work week to figure out what exactly went wrong in a 68-50 loss to Georgia Tech. And because their division is a total mess, this one could have implications on who ends up going to the ACC championship game. Though North Carolina is ineligible to win the division, its results and records still figure into the league's tiebreaker scenarios. Though Virginia is no longer alive for the division crown, the Hoos still have bowl hopes.

ACC Power Rankings: Week 12 - ESPN.com
The Coastal Division race is as clear as mud, with Miami, Duke, Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech all still capable of winning the division title. Go ahead, rank those four teams on your own. See what you come up with. Good luck. Meanwhile, Florida State is in the driver's seat in the Atlantic Division.

ACC Heisman Watch: Week 12 - ESPN.com
1. North Carolina running back Giovani Bernard: He is simply one of the most electrifying and productive players in the nation. He ranks second in the nation in scoring, third in all-purpose yards, fourth in punt return average and eighth in rushing (yards per game). Bernard has 17 touchdowns this season and needs four to equal the single-season school record of 21 set by Don McCauley in 1970. He ran for more than 100 yards against Virginia Tech, Miami, Duke and NC State. Bernard has 1,008 rushing yards and is the first Carolina player with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons since Natrone Means in 1991 (1,030) and 1992 (1,195).

UNC QB Williams deserves late-season snaps - FoxSportsCaroilnas.com
Among the areas of concern facing first-year North Carolina football coach Larry Fedora and his staff is the fairly immediate future of quarterback within the program. Incumbent starter Bryn Renner is a fine college quarterback. He makes nice reads, throws a good deep ball and can hit the short stuff. He moves fairly well in the pocket and he is a leader in the huddle, on the rare occasion the Tar Heels even bother huddling. But is he the right player to run Fedora's spread offense?

Lucas: By The Numbers - GoHeels.com
After Carolina dispatched Florida Atlantic 80-56 on Sunday afternoon, Roy Williams had a simple assessment: "We got a heck of a lot better as a team today." At this point in the season, that's the goal every time out for this particular type of young Tar Heel team. But after two home wins, with a challenging stretch of four games away from home in six days, what have we learned about the 2013 Tar Heels?

Cavs prepare for fast-paced UNC offense - Richmond Times-Dispatch
Virginia linebacker LaRoy Reynolds was keeping an eye on the out-of-town-games scoreboard during Saturday's game. Every time he looked, Georgia Tech and North Carolina had traded touchdowns again. The Yellow Jackets ended up winning 68-50 against the Tar Heels, who head to Charlottesville on Thursday. "I was shocked," Reynolds said of the outcome. "I was trying to figure out how they scored that many points."
