North Carolina Tarheels
2020 Record: 8-4
5 ⭐ ………. 1
4 ⭐………. 11
3 ⭐………. 7
The Tar Heels were a popular pick to maybe give Clemson a run in 2020. They fell short of that goal, but it wasn’t a bad year. They scored points at a ridiculous pace, and that 8-4 could very easily been 11-1.
The Tar Heels should be better in 2021 than in 2020. QB Sam Howell should be in most Heisman conversations. His entire O Line is back. One problem; most of his top skill players are gone. The D should be improved, not that that was a big challenge; look at the scores last year. At first glance you might think it’s Tar Heels Basketball results.
If Things Go Well:
If a new batch of backs and receivers step up… and there is more than enough talent for that to happen… Virginai Tech and Notre Dame shouldn’t be elite this year, and Miami is at home. The season ender at NC State could be huge. If the D improves, this team could easily be playing for a National Title.
It They Don’t
If the skill players don’t pan out and the D is lousy again, 2021 will look just like 2020.
No Clemson helps. The ‘Heels will still be in some shootouts, and should win more of those close games. But when RB and WR are both issues in the same year, it’s hard to bet the farm.
