The Defensive Player of the Week honor is the second for UNC on the year, with David Hoage winning two weeks ago.

  Navy inside linebacker Tama Tuitele has entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to a published report. Rivals.com reported via its NCAA Transfer Portal Twitter feed that Tuitele, a junior who played in 14 career games for the Midshipmen, was considering a transfer. Navy athletics spokesman Scott Strasemeier declined to comment on the report, stating that Tuitele remains on the football roster. Tuitele, like all juniors, is due to sign the two-for-seven papers binding midshipmen to two more years at the Naval Academy and five years of military service. Tuitele can leave the academy with no repercussions before signing those papers before classes start for the fall semester. Tuitele's career at Navy has been beset by injuries. The Colorado native started four of six games as a freshman before suffering a season-ending injury against South Florida. He totaled 19 tackles that season and led the team with five solo stops against Memphis. - Capital Times

  The new Northern Colorado quarterback has a big head, the offensive coordinator kidded. That same O.C. was grounded twice during camp, the head coach cracked. Those McCaffrey boys, just full of jokes. On this, they're quite serious: Teaming up to help lead the Bears back to football prominence. The Mac-to-Mac-to-Mac connection in Greeley features quarterback Dylan McCaffrey transferring in from Michigan and his big brother Max putting NFL tryouts on the backburner to serve as offensive coordinator. They're joining forces with their dad, Ed, the longtime NFL receiver who was hired as head coach in December 2019 and will finally make his college coaching debut Sept. 3 at Colorado (the Bears' season in 2020 was postponed due to the virus).

"We all want to get better. We all want to win football games," Dylan said Wednesday after practice. "That really brings the respect in, along with the love." The McCaffreys have long been one of the first families of football in Colorado. There's also Christian, a running back for the Carolina Panthers, and Luke, a quarterback at Rice. Of course, the glue is their mom, Lisa, who's always at games. As for the pressure of dealing with such a well-known last name - dad was a three-time Super Bowl winner with Denver and San Francisco - Dylan dismissed it: "I know my family because they're my family." - Denver Post
