Not everything is always black and white. One or the other. “It’s this, so it can’t be that.” It’s important to remember, after what was probably the most memorable college football season in North Carolina in recent memory, that multiple things can be true at once. Some examples of what we’re talking about: It’s possible to have a down year, on the field, and still have arguably the best ...

Georgia, Ohio State, Michigan and TCU held on to the top four spots in the College Football Playoff rankings. The Bulldogs’ Southeastern Conference rivals Tennessee and LSU are at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively. With three of the top six teams and only three weeks left until Selection Sunday, the SEC appears well positioned to put two teams in the CFP for the second straight season and third time overall. USC, the Pac-12′s best and probably last hope to make the final four, is seventh.

Well, things are officially getting weird. Have been for a while, actually, but Saturday cemented it: This is now the wildest, strangest college football season in recent memory in North Carolina.

"Raising Lazarus: Hope, Justice, and the Future of America’s Overdose Crisis" by Beth Macy; Little, Brown (373 pages, $30) ——— It was historic — and alarming — news when in August the National Center for Health Statistics announced that, for the second year in a row, life expectancy for Americans had declined, dropping to a level last seen three decades ago. One factor in that drop was, of ...

The season of recalibrated expectations comes for everyone, eventually — even Clemson, at this very point last fall, after the loss at Pittsburgh. It is the moment when whatever plans were made in August are officially moot, and nothing pushes a team further down the spiral than losing its quarterback. That’s particularly acute at N.C. State, where there was never a real backup plan for Devin ...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — For someone so closely associated with Charlotte and the South, famed artist Romare Bearden spent precious little time here. In fact, his parents fled the city when a white mob targeted them in 1915 during the Jim Crow era. They took their young son to Pittsburgh, part of the Great Migration of Southern Black families to the North in the early 20th century. Later, they ...
