North Carolina Tar Heels

The North Carolina Tar Heels finished 8-4 last year and will now be bowl-eligible and ACC title-eligible this season. Head coach, Larry Fedora, was modestly successful in his first season at North Carolina. Fedora’s spread offense produced more than 40 points a game, setting school records along the way. On the other side of the ball, the defense was a disappointment, allowing at least 28 points in seven of their twelve games last year. The same might be true for the Tar Heels this year, as the offense should be explosive again, while the defense has several holes to fill heading into this season. The offense also has gaps to be filled, but senior QB Bryn Renner is a solid quarterback, and his supporting cast offers hope. Renner has not disappointed Tar Heel fans over the past couple years and he will use his final year in college as a Read More
