Because, (I am speculating here) the Tar Heels have something the others do not have... a talented quarterback who proved his bona fides last year. They have talent recruited by the old warhorse but then, UNC always has talent. Talent is neve the issue in Chapel Hill...winning ball games is the issue.Why are these sportswriter's so high on North Carolina? I get it, the ACC doesn't have a lot to offer in the Coastal. But, the Tar Heels? I think Miami and VT will be better than UNC. I just don't get where this praise is coming from. I don't know... This year is going to be weird. All it takes is a few players contracting COVID and the best teams, become average. So, really hard to say how this season goes.
