    The Tar Heels have high hopes coming into this season. Their first game against a scrappy Eastern Michigan was a struggle to say the least.

    Coming in as an 18 point favorite, the Heels quickly fell behind 3-0. Being the terrible player that he is, PointShaver, quickly panicked and threw a pick six to fall behind 10-0.

    After settling down and going back to the running game, the Heels quickly turned it around and headed to the locker room with a 14-13 lead.

    After blowing a 28-13 4th quarter lead with around 40 seconds to play, TJ Yates completed a 58 yard screen pass for a touchdown to win the game 35-28. North Carolina was very fortunate to escape with a victory.:HoosierHoo::rolleyes:

    Indiana provided very little challenge for UNC

    [​IMG]
    Just another autumn Saturday at Chapel Hill for Tar Heel Senior Jordan Hemby.

    In the first quarter, North Carolina's ball control was on display as they scored on two ten play drives; one ending in a 4th and 1 QB sneak by TJ Yates and the other with a pounding TD run from RB Shaun Draughn.

    [​IMG]
    Shaun Draughn pounds it in from 5 yards out.

    The opening quarter also had both teams picking off the opposing QB for 6.

    [​IMG]
    Jordan Hemby, jumped a Ben Chappell pass to the flats intended for Damarlo Belcher for the 30 yard TD.

    [​IMG]
    An overthown pass up the middle was snagged by a lingering Nick Polk who sprinted 70 yards for Indiana's only TD.

    In the second quarter, UNC reached the endzone once more, this time through the air as Yates shows great touch the ball when he finds Sophomore WR Dwight Jones in the endzone.

    [​IMG]

    At halftime, the score was UNC 28, Indiana 10.

    The second half was purely academic as Indiana had no answer for UNC's defense which held them to only three points.

    The game ended with a final score of 44-13 as North Carolina improves their record to 3-2.

    UNC Starts the 2010 Season Off on the Right Foot
    The Tarheels started the 2010 campaign off by beating up the Colorado Buffaloes 44-17. Things were tight for a quarter and a half as the score was tied 10-10. Colorado was very effective running the ball as they just pounded it inside repeatedly and the Tar Heels had a hell of a time stopping it. UNC's offense would kick into high gear at this point as they scored 21 unanswered points to take a 31-10 lead at the half. Trailing by so many the Buffaloes had to resort to their passing game and the Tar Heels shut that down with no problems.

    UNC spread the ball around quite well as they had 4 guys with 5+ carries, but none with more than 8. They also had 5 guys with 2+ receptions, but none with more than 3. RS Freshman WR Jheranie Boyd was named player of the game with 264 all purpose yards, including a KR for a TD

    UNC Beats Up ECU

    This was a game where the men from North Carolina took on the boys from ECU. UNC won 34-0 in a game where UNC was clearly bigger, stronger, and faster than ECU. It started off slowly as both teams went scoreless after the 1st quarter. After that, UNC would start scoring while continuing to hold ECU scoreless. UNC dominated the time of possession as they held the ball for 19 minutes compared to only 9 minutes for ECU. ECU would only convert 2 of 11 3rd downs.

    Here are some examples of how UNC was just too strong for ECU. First is a TD reception by Jheranie Boyd. He took a 10 yard slant pattern, turned on the speed to pull away from the LBs. He would get caught by some DBs, but he was just too strong as he shrugged off 4 attempted tackles to score on a 66 yard TD.

    This next one is awesome! ROLB Zach Brown is blitzing. ECU's HB picks up the block on Brown just like he's been taught. Unfortunately for him, Brown posterizes him as Zach just runs him over on his way to the QB.

    UNC Downs NCSt, 48-9

    UNC had no problems handing an embarrassing loss to their little brothers, NC State. The Heels' defense was dominant once again as they only gave up 9 points. It would've only been 3 points, but they let a Wolfpack HB break a 66 yard TD on them. Coach Jello said during the press conference that his defense will be running some extra wind sprints because of that.

    With as great as it was to beat up their rival like this, the game did come with a price. SR FB Anthony Elzy was injured and will miss at least the next 8 weeks. Prior to this game, Elzy was second on the team in carries (only 1 behind the leader), 2nd in rushing yards, and 1st in rushing TDs. Losing this half of UNC's dual headed rushing attack will hurt the Heels. Someone (hopefully HB Ryan Houston) will have to step up to fill that void.

    While this was a good victory for North Carolina, every UNC fan's head will be forever filled with the following image.

    UNC Physically Beats Up FSU, Then Survives Scare At The End

    [​IMG]

    North Carolina and FSU had a well played and hard fought game tonight. It started out close as both teams went back and forth in the first half and went into half time all knotted up at 17-17. In the 3rd quarter UNC seized control as they outscored the Seminoles, 10-0. UNC would strike first in the 4th thanks to a 68 yard TD run by HB Shaun Draughn to put UNC up by 17. FSU would march down the field and would score again on a 7 yard pass from Manuel to Easterling to pull to within 10.

    UNC would play it conservative then entire 4th quarter as they ground out the clock with their power running game. They scored a FG to put them up by 13 with 1:03 remaining. On the ensuing drive, UNC somehow let someone get deep on their quarters defense and this would ultimately result in an FSU TD with 9 seconds remaining to pull FSU to within 6. FSU would recover the onside kick, but, after having to burn all 3 TOs on UNCs previous drive, 9 seconds was not enough time to score again.

    This game was determined by 2 things; 1. the war in the trenches, and 2. big plays. Both of UNC's lines dominated the game. UNC's defense would sack Manuel 5 times and UNC's ACC leading rushing defense would hold the Seminoles to only 24 rushing yards on 19 carries. On the other side of the ball, UNC's offensive line would dominate as they would open holes in the FSU defense all game long. This allowed UNC to rush for 289 yards on 37 carries. It also allowed UNC to only have to pass the ball 9 times during the game and only have to punt once. UNC would also get some key big plays as 3 of their 4 TDs were for 50+ yards.

    Here is the kind of power football that UNC used to win this tightly contested game:

    Thankfully For UNC, It Doesn't Matter Who Plays Better, But Only Who's Leading When Time Runs Out

    [​IMG]
    Greg Little - All he does is catch TDs
    Here is Little's 4th TD on 10 receptions for 362 yards on the season



    For the most part, UNC was outplayed Saturday night, but they made the plays when they needed them to eek out a 32-26 victory over #19 Georgia Tech. GT was mostly unstoppable on offense. They were able to run the ball against UNC's 3rd ranked rushing defense to the tune of 167 yards and 2 TDs. UNC was fortunate to only give up 167 yards as the GT O-line pancaked 23 UNC defenders during the game. However, what was surprising was the fact that GT threw the ball for 268 yards and only had 4 incompletions out of 20 passes.

    UNC stepped it up when they had to. They forced FG attempts twice when GT had 1st and goal inside the 3 yard line. Also, while they had not forced GT to punt previously, they did force them to punt late in the 4th quarter which allowed UNC to get the ball back for their game winning drive. Also, after giving up 23 points in the 1st half, UNC's ACC leading scoring defense only allowed 3 in the entire 2nd half.

    UNC QB TJ Yates was ducking GT blitzers all day and threw 2 lame duck INTs, 1 of which was a pick 6. But he too made the plays when they were needed. He threw for 241 yards with only 10 completions and he helped the Tar Heels convert 8 of 12 3rd down conversions. UNC's running game was mostly stagnant, but HBs Draughn and Houston did manage 104 and 53 yards total.

    When it was all said and done, however, the fact remains that UNC won by 6 points, thanks in no small part to 2 missed FGs and a missed XP by GT's kicker. UNC will now prepare to face the Turkeys of Virginia Tech next week.

    Tar Heels Run All Over Cavaliers in Front of 21 of Their Potential Recruits

    With the injury to starting FB Elzy, someone needed to step up their game and someone, thy name is Ryan Houston. The dual headed monster of Draughn and Houston dismantled Virginia's defense. Starter Shaun Draughn ran for 165 yards on 17 carries. Backup Ryan Houston would have a career day as he would rush for 66 yards and a whopping 5 TDs. TJ Yates, the ACC's leader in QB efficiency was his usual efficient self as he threw for 182 yards on only 11 completions.

    Next week the Tar Heels will take on division opponent Miami.

    Ladies and Gentlemen! It's the Ryan Houston Show! <applause>

    [​IMG]

    In what was a great defensive struggle all game, the Tar Heels finished ahead of the Hurricanes, 20-10. The difference in this game was clearly 2nd string HB, Ryan Houston. 1st stringer Shaun Draughn was injured in the 2nd quarter and never returned, but it didn't matter. Miami didn't have an answer for Houston's bruising running style as he ran for 118 yards and 2 TDs and seemingly picked up 5 yards any time that UNC needed it. Houston made it clear that arm tackles wouldn't be enough to bring him down as he was bouncing off of defenders all game.

    On the defensive side of the ball, the Heels came into the game with a very specific plan and it worked to perfection. They knew they needed to stop one of the best RBs in the conference in Cooper and one of the best receivers in Benjamin. UNC was able to do both as they held Cooper to 17 yards on 10 carries (and Miami to 6 yards on 15 carries) and were able to blanket Benjamin, allowing only 43 yards and 3 catches. Houston as deserves honorable mention for this defensive effort as his running of the ball allowed the Heels to control the clock for over 17 minutes to less than 10 for Miami. Keeping Miami's potent offense off the field proved to be an excellent defensive strategy.

    Next week UNC will take on Clemson while the Hurricanes play in an equally important game for the Heels as they take on Virginia Tech. Unless Miami and beat VT, UNC can not win the ACC title.

    UNC tops Clemson 34-10

    [​IMG]
    The Tar Heels hard hitting defense forced 4 turnovers against Clemson


    In this game one team lived up to what it does best while the other lived up to what it does worst. UNC's defense (which has given up the fewest points in the ACC) was dominant all game against one of the highest scoring, most powerful offenses in the country. Clemson, who is last in the NCAA in turnover differential, had trouble holding onto the ball as they threw 1 pick and fumbled the ball 3 times. UNC's stellar defense was hitting hard all day and made things as difficult as they could for the Tigers. They sacked Korn 5 times, forced 3 fumbles, intercepted 1 pass, and held the tigers to -14 yards rushing on 20 attempts and 152 yards of total offense.

    Player of the game, SR CB Kendric Burney played absolutely out of his mind tonight. He was throwing his little 5'9 180 pound body all over the place. He ended the game with a team leading 7 tackles, 1 interception, 2 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 1 TD. If he's not the national defensive PotW this week, then I can't wait to see the stats of the guy that beat him out.

    The Heels must now wait for the result of the Miami - Virginia Tech game to see if they can have a shot at playing in the ACC conference championship game.

    #10 UNC Tops an Absolutely Horrible Baylor Team, 56-0

    Carolina pitched their 2nd shutout (5th game giving up 10 or fewer points) while also scoring a team high 56 points while under coach Jello. The Heels amassed a ridiculous 600 yards of total offense as they rushed for 316 while passing for 284 (both season highs). Baylor's offense sputtered the entire game. While UNC converted on 9 of 10 3rd down conversions, the Bears only managed to convert 1 of 8 and 1 of 4 4th down conversions.

    It appears as if the Heels are upset about not getting to play in the ACCCG and about their perceived lack of respect in the polls and they took out their frustrations on the poor teddy bears.

    UNC Fights Tooth and Nail With Tigers and Finally Pulls Away in the End

    [​IMG]
    These two guys will be missed next season


    #8 UNC would ultimately win the Chick-Fil-A bowl against a lowly 7-5 Auburn team, but it wasn't easy. The tiger defense was pinning their ears back all game long and tallied 6 sacks. UNC also got in their own way on several occasions. On 1 of Auburn's scoring drives, the Heels had an interception called back due to a roughing the passer penalty and they also allowed Auburn to convert a 4th and 2 by jumping offsides. When it was all said and done, however, the Heels just had too much talent and they pulled out a 33-16 victory.

    Jr kicker, Casey Barth was the PotG with a 4/4 FG performance. This completed a perfect season for the kicker (who wasn't even 1st team all conference) as he hit 23/23 FGs (including a nation high 5 50+ yard FGs) and 56/56 XPs. Shaun Draughn rushed for 100 yards and 1 TD in his final game wearing the Carolina blue. UNC was pissed off that, as the #8 team in the country, they had to play a 7-5 team and they clearly underestimated the Tigers, but they were simply too strong for Auburn anyway.

    UNC 2011 Season Preview

    The Heels are almost completely revamped this year after a very successful 2010 campaign. They have lost their starting QB, HB, FB, WR1, WR2, and TE on offense. SR Mike Paulus will start out as the starting QB, but coach Jello won't hesitate to yank him in favor of JR A.J. Blue if things go sideways. While they lost Shaun Draughn @ HB, Ryan Houston will fill in very nicely as he started half of last year due to Draughn's injuries. The Heels have 4 pretty decent WRs, but after that they are iffy at best. The O-line is easily the best part of the Tar Heels offense as they start 4 SRs.

    Then there's the defense......

    SR book ends Robert Quinn and Quinton Coples are looking to have a huge years after 11 and 8 sack performances last year. SR OLB Zach Brown should also have a monster year. Outside of those 3 guys, the defense is very poor. The Heels have 4 FR DTs, none of whom is worth a damn. Their other 2 LBs are mediocre at best and really, really pale in comparison to Carter and Sturdivant who are playing for the Redskins and the Colts in the NFL this year. The secondary is so bad that it has made coach Jello cry himself to sleep on many a night. Their #2 CB is a 254 lb redshirt FR. Nuff said. UNC's best defense is clearly going to be their offense remaining on the field. Sadly, their offense may not be good enough to accomplish this.

    Unfortunately for the Heels, their schedule is not at all conducive to them finding their identity early. Their first 6 games consist of 5 road games and 5 games against ranked opponents, including 3 top 10 teams. All in all, they play 6 teams ranked in the top 25 and 5 user games. This could very likely be a very rough season for Tar Heel fans everywhere.

    Revenge Has Never Tasted So Sweet!

    [​IMG]
    Ryan Houston was a BEAST today

    UNC got revenge for their last loss of last season today between the hedges. They dominated the dawgs in every facet of the game and cruised to an easy 44-18 victory over the #1 team in the land. UNC's offense dominated UGA's defense just as much as UNC's defense had their way with the UGA offense. They had 400 yards of offense to UGA's 200 yards. They had 120 rushing yards to UGA's 45 and they threw for 280 yards compared to 160. The Heels only had to punt once the entire game and that was during the last minute of the 2nd quarter where they had a 3 and out with nothing but passes to try to move quickly down the field.

    Offensively, Ryan Houston was the man and proves that there is clearly a place in college football for a big powerful back and that not everyone needs to be Demps. He ran for 116 yards, averaged 5.2 yards per carry and totaled 3 rushing TDs. What's most impressive about this is the fact that his long was only 14 yards so that average isn't padded. He was good for about 5 yards almost every single time he touched the ball. He ran straight up the gut and outside with equal ease. He made it very clear early on that arm tackles would not be enough to bring him down. Because of Houston's rushing prowess, the dawgs really packed the box for most of the game, which game new starting QB Mike Paulus easy reads on passes which allowed him to complete 15 of 21 passes for 280 yards. His main target was SR TE Christian Wilson who caught 6 balls for 150 yards and 2 TDs.

    Defensively, coach Jello's gameplan was to attack the UGA offensive line. With the plethora of scary weapons UGA has on offense, their O-line is probably one of the weakest that the Heels will face all season. They are especially weak at RT where they start true FR Will Hooper who would probably be a 3rd stringer on most SEC or ACC teams. To take advantage of this, coach Jello switched his RE (his best DE) to LE for this game to line him up against the FR and it worked like a charm. Coples tallied team highs with 9 tackles, 5 TFL, and 3 sacks. All in all, the Heels sacked the UGA QBs 6 times and they also forced 2 interceptions to boot.

    Hopefully this performance will help boost the confidence of a very young, and frankly, not very good defense. Ryan Houston showed what most Heels fans already knew coming into this season. Our offense will be just fine.

    UNC Holds on to Win Against Revamped #7 Georgia Tech

    UNC was in shock at the beginning of this game. They spent the entire week following their upset @ #1 Georgia preparing for #7 Georgia Tech's fleXbox One attack. Much to their surprise, GT didn't run any fleXbox One and instead ran mostly a shotgun attack. This caused GT to take a 7-3 lead through the 1st quarter. GT also would've lead at halftime, but UNC got a TD with 5 seconds remaining to take a 24-21 lead.

    Georgia Tech's run defense was very stout against the Heels which forced them to have to throw the ball much more often than which they are accustomed. Luckily the Heels' offense was up to the challenge. UNC ended up throwing for 381 yards and 3 TDs while only gaining 56 yards on the ground off of 29 carries. In addition to stopping the Tar Heel rushing attack, the Yellow Jacket defense was money on 3rd downs and forced the Heels to punt the ball 7 times.

    The UNC defense looked confused at times during the 1st half as they gave up 21 points. After a very intense halftime speech by coach Jello, the young Tar Heel defense came out inspired in the 2nd half and didn't allow a single score for the rest of the game. GT's only 2nd half points came off of a pick 6. With their new SG attack, GT QB Shaw threw for 338 yards. Stud HB Roddy Jones rushed for 135 yards thanx in part to a 76 yarder in the 1st half.

    You would think that beating the #s 1 and 7 teams in back to back weeks would give the Heels a reason to celebrate their new #1 ranking, but unfortunately they have no time to celebrate as they now have to prepare to face the #6 Crimson Tide of Alabama. 3 weeks and 3 top 7 opponents. Hopefully the Heels can survive this gauntlant.

    #1 Heels Take Care of Business Against #6 Alabama in Home Opener

    [​IMG]
    UNC QBs combined for 5 TDs and 0 Interceptions on the day

    In an offensive shootout, UNC prevailed in the end over #6 Alabama 41-31. For the entire game, both teams' offenses pretty much had their way with the opposing defense. Both teams just went back and forth as they took turns marching the ball down the field. The 1st quarter was rather uneventful as UNC took a 7-3 lead after 1. Alabama would begin the explosive 2nd quarter by scoring on a 29 yard TD run just 7 seconds into the 2nd. The teams would swap scores for the entire 2nd quarter. On Alabama's 2nd to last drive they once again marched the ball down the field. Once it was 1st and goal, coach Jello began burning his timeouts so that he could hopefully have time to score. UNC stonewalled Alabama on 3 straight plays which brought up 4th and goal from the 1. Coach Killa made the gutsy decision to bypass the sure FG for the lead and went for it. HB Griffin would punch it in from 1 yard out as user controlled MLB Reddick flew through the hole only to run right past Griffin instead of smacking him in the mouth. Coach Jello was beyond pissed at his lack of stick skills.

    This put Alabama up by 7, but thanks to UNC using all of their timeouts, they left themselves 1:30 to try to tie the game up. It turns out that they only needed 52 seconds to get the tying TD on a 9 yard pass from backup QB A.J. Blue. Starter Mike Paulus was injured and missed half of the game, but Blue played brilliantly for the 2nd week in a row as a sub. Blue has now completed 68% of his passes and thrown 5 TD passes on 11 completions for 21 yards per completion in backup duty. Paulus is going to have to continue to put up big numbers if he wants to remain the starter, but for now, his job is safe. Injuries could've been a big factor in this game for the Heels, but luckily they have enough depth at some key positions to have survived. In addition to Paulus missing half of the game, #2 WR and #1 returner Jheranie Boyd had to sit out the game. Starting HB Ryan Houston also got injured and missed over half of the game.

    Like UNC's last game against GT, their defense gave up huge numbers in the 1st half, but after coach Jello tore them a new bunghole at halftime, they played much better as they only allowed 7 Alabama points in the 2nd half. This was also due to UNC's offenses brilliant job of staying on the field in the 2nd half. By far, the most telling stat of the game was 3rd down conversions. Alabama pretty much moved the ball at will, and gained a lot of 1st downs on 1st and 2nd down, but when they were actually forced to 3rd down, the UNC defense stiffened up. Alabama gained more 1st downs than UNC, but 15 of their 18 1st downs were on 1st or 2nd down. UNC would convert 6 of their 8 3rd downs which allowed their offense to stay on the field. Alabama only managed to convert 1 of their 6 3rd downs. That was the difference in the game right there.

    At the risk of jinxing themselves, coach Jello was quoted as saying "Alabama is a tough ass team and I expect them to challenge for the SEC title this year. I'm just thankful that the 1st half of out ridiculous gauntlet is behind us and we get to get a free win against a terrible rival in NC State. We're going to beat them up and I'm going to enjoy it and look past them as I begin preparing for a very tough Virginia Tech team. They're the only ACC team to beat us last year and we must have this win. Another loss in that game will mean yet another season with no shot at the ACC title."

    Heels Escape Raleigh with Victory over Wolfpack

    [​IMG]
    Christian Wilson caught 3 TD passes on the day

    After guaranteeing a victory in this game following the Alabama win, coach Jello almost had to eat his words. NC State almost gave the Heels more than they could handle. The Wolf Pack lead at the half 19-14 and took a 26-14 lead early in the 3rd. The Heels fought back into the game and finally took the lead with 3:27 left in the game.

    The Heels were very flat and did not play well at all in this game. They turned the ball over 4 freakin' times while NC State didn't turn it over once. Starting QB Mike Paulus accounted for 3 of those turnovers as he fumbled once and threw 2 INTs. He was yanked at halftime and backup A.J. Blue played the 2nd half. Ryan Houston was solid on the ground, rushing for 126 yards, but TE Christian Wilson was the offensive star. He caught 5 balls for 97 yards and 3 TDs.

    North Carolina will now prepare for their huge matchup with Virginia Tech.

    Tar Heels Defense Finally Lives Up to Potential

    Thanks to a 1st half interception thrown by Mike Paulus, UNC would play catch up for the entire game. Unfortunately, their defense, which has been almost respectable so far this year, finally fulfilled their promise as they were incapable of getting the Hokie offense off the field. VT never had to punt the ball the entire game and they were only forced into 5 3rd down attempts. VT completed 22 of 28 passes, threw for 339 yards, and ran for 179.

    Midway through the 3rd quarter, VT would take a 31-17 lead before UNC would finally decide to attempt a comeback. On the day, the UNC offense, like the defense, lived up to their potential. Fortunately, the potential of the UNC offense vastly exceeds the potential of our defense. Later in the game, because of the deficit, UNC went into pass only mode. Before this, however, UNC was able to run the ball well. They rushed for 159 yards, led by 155 from Ryan Houston. Mike Paulus would forget about his early interception and throw the ball well for the entire game. He ended up with 381 yards and 4 TDs with the 1 INT on the game. UNC's receivers were once again led by surprising early season Heisman candidate TE Christian Wilson with 9 catches for 151 yards and a TD and 6'5 WR Rashad Mason who caught 7 passes for 108 yards and 2 TDs.

    Trailing 31-17 midway through the 3rd, UNC made a comeback, helped by JuJuJuJu's 2nd INT of the game. They would connect on 2 TD passes in the 4th quarter to finally tie the game up # 38 with 2:39 left in the quarter. As was the case the entire game, UNC's defense couldn't get off the field and VT marched down the field. UNC's defense finally showed a little bit of back bone as they held VT to a FG with 22 seconds remaining. UNC had burned all of their TOs on that last VT drive so they had to try to get into FG range in 22 seconds. They had a couple of incomplete passes and 2 completions that got them to about the VT 20 yard line as time expired. If there had been 5 more seconds remaining, they could've spiked the ball and kicked the tying FG, but there wasn't.

    Once again UNC can't figure out VT and VT will sail into the ACC championship game for the 3rd straight year. Next week UNC's terrible defense is going to take on #10 Clemson who is leading the nation in scoring with 143 PPG, #2 in the country in total offense, and #1 in rushing offense. If UNC can hold the Tigers below the century mark, we will consider this a success.

    Wilson Has a Career Day as Heels Offense Kicks It Into High Gear

    [​IMG]
    Christian Wilson now holds the UNC single season record for TD receptions

    Mike Paulus and Christian Wilson just shredded the Virginia defense all game long. Paulus had 2 annoying interceptions, but he also completed 64% of his passes for 287 yards and 5 TDs. Wilson caught 10 of those passes for 159 yards and a whopping 4 TDs. His 4th TD was his 13th on the season which broke the UNC single season record. UNC's 2 impact receivers both had 1 TD and 83 and 53 yards of receiving. On the ground, Ryan Houston started off strong, but was held in check for the last half of the game. He ended up with 79 yards on 16 carries. UNC's beleaguered defense played surprisingly well as they held the pitiful Virginia offense to only 13 points.

    This game was played in front of 9 recruiting prospects so hopefully UNC will finally start getting some of the many commitments that are needed. Next week they will host Miami and their new head coach Kezo NY.

    Heels Pound #14 Bearcats Into Submission

    [​IMG]
    Christian Wilson and the Heels had the Bearcats feeling blue all day

    North Carolina cruised against #14 Cincinnati to a 48-21 victory. Christian Wilson was his usual beastly self as he caught 12 passes for 225 yards and 2 TDs. PotG, QB Mike Paulus put up equally studly numbers as he threw for 378 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT, and ran for 1 TD as well. The Heels out gained the Cats 480 yards to 280. The Heels porous defense only allowed 13 rushing yards, which is a tremendous feat for them.

    There were only minor injuries, and with an BYE week before the conference championship game, the Heels expect to be at full health when they face the mighty Clemson Tigers.

    Heels Win First Conference Championship since 1980!

    [​IMG]
    Ryan Houston was unstoppable all game long

    UNC's very good offense dominated the entire game while their porous defense played surprisingly well en route to a 31-13 victory. In their 1st matchup earlier this year, Clemson won 34-24 thanks in huge part to the 3 INTs thrown by Mike Paulus. Because of this, coach Jello played very conservatively (the longest pass play was 20 yards) and it paid off. Clemson's defense was unable to stop this conservative gameplan of lots of runs and short passes. UNC never had to punt and scored on every possession of the game. UNC converted on an amazing 10 of 11 3rd down conversions and scored a TD all 3 times they entered the red zone. The real surprise was the defense, which is rated in the bottom half of teams in the country. During the game they only allowed 1 TD and 2 FGs which is a humongous achievement for them.

    Ryan Houston returned from his injury and came up huge in the game. He ran for 119 yards and 2 TDs and was good for 3-5 yards almost every time he touched the ball. While TE Christian Wilson didn't catch many balls as Mike Paulus spread the ball around (he completed his 13 completions to 6 different receivers) but he made them count, catching 2 TDs on 3 receptions.

    UNC will be partying hard as for a week and then they will prepare to face #4 Rutgers in the Orange Bowl.

    2012 North Carolina Tar Heels Season Preview

    Returning Leaders

    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4 Column 5
    Area Player POS Year Stats
    Passing A.J. Blue QB SR 193.7 QBR, 587 yards, 8 TD, 4 INT
    Rushing Dallas Kirk HB SO 157 yards, 4.7 YPC, 1 TD
    Receiving Jheranie Boyd WR JR 54 rec, 780 yards, 3 TD
    Tackles Dustin Williams SS JR 122 tackles
    Sacks Alex Henry DT SO 7 sacks
    INTs Larry Abrams CB SO 4 INTs

    UNC lost a ridiculous amount of firepower on offense. They lost their starting QB, top 2 HBs, record setting TE, top 3 WRs, and some guys on the line. Combine that with their terrible defense which got even worse this year and they are yound and untalented pretty much across the board.

    Starting QB
    A.J. Blue (91 OVR, 76 SPD, 91 THP, 88 THA)

    ---Blue will have to be a true leader and put the entire team on his shoulders this year.

    STARTING BACKFIELD
    HB- Dallas Kirk (89 OVR, 93 SPD)
    FB- David Sharpe (74 OVR, 79 SPD)

    ---With the departure of all everything back Ryan Houston, there is a gaping hole in the backfield. Kirk will be a very good back by the time he leaves the Heels, but he'll never be another Ryan Houston.

    STARTING RECEIVERS
    WR- Jheranie Boyd (93 OVR, 94 SPD)
    WR- Todd Harrelson (92 OVR, 93 SPD)
    WR- Kyle Rogers (87 OVR, 89 SPD)
    WR- Jerry Henderson (85 OVR, 90 SPD)
    TE- Tony Hunter (83 OVR, 81 SPD)

    ---Boyd and Harrelson will be very solid targets for Blue. Rogers will be decent in the slot, but anything over 3 WR sets will bring inexperienced and untalented receivers onto the field for the Heels. They had better pray that none of their top 3 receivers gets hurt. Hunter, while not another Christian Wilson, will become a solid TE before our coaches are through with him.

    STARTING OLINE
    LT- Mark hardy (86 OVR)
    LG- Jonathan Cooper (99 OVR)
    C- Eric White (84 OVR)
    RG- Johnnice Farms (92 OVR)
    RT- Brennan Williams (86 OVR)

    ---This is easily the worst offensive line in coach Jello's tenure. Blue is more mobile than any other QB that the Heels have had and he'll likely need that mobility if he intends to keep his head attached.

    STARTING D-LINE
    DE- Tydreke Powell (95 OVR, 86 SPD)
    DT- Alex Henry (83 OVR)
    DT- Drew Brown (81 OVR)
    DE- Mike Jacobs (80 OVR, 86 SPD)

    ---With the exception of Powell, this defensive line belongs on a MAC school.

    STARTING LB
    OLB- Herman Davidson (89 OVR, 85 SPD)
    MLB- Derrick Jenkins (82 OVR, 79 SPD)
    OLB- Hawatha Bell (91 OVR, 86 SPD)

    ---See Defensive and offensive line comments...

    SECONDARY
    CB- Cameron Moore (82 OVR, 90 SPD)
    CB- Larry Abrams (81 OVR, 91 SPD)
    FS- William Perry (82 OVR, 87 SPD)
    SS- Dustin Williams (88 OVR, 89 SPD)

    ---Uhhhhhhhh.
    Yeah.


    UNC's immediate goal for this season is to make a bowl game. If they can do that, then this season will be seen as a success.


    EDIT:
    Wow. I just checked and Auburn and Virginia are the only user teams worse than the Heels. The other 9 teams are all better. I really need to get this recruiting thing figured out!

    Heels lose to a CPU controlled team for the first time during coach Jello's tenure.

    The Heels lived up to preseason expectations as they lost their season opener to Arizona State 28-34. SR QB A.J. Blue played like crap, throwing 1 TD and 3 picks. SO HB Dallas Kirk ran hard and often as he carried the ball for 100+ yards and 3 TDs. JR WR Jheranie Boyd caught UNC's only TD reception.

    The Heels defense played like the steaming pile of crap that they are as the ASU offense pretty much had their way with them. The Heels will have to regroup quickly as they strive to attain 6 wins this year and attend a bowl game.
