MrTarheel - High Optimism for 2012 Football Season

I am a Larry Fedora fan. From what I have seen and heard so far he is exactly what I want in a UNC Head Football coach. He is innovative, enthusiastic, and hard working. The real deal.

2012


LARRY FEDORA. New head coach of the Tar Heels. In four seasons at Southern Miss, Fedora compiled a 34-19 overall record, including a 12-2 mark in 2011, and advanced to four consecutive bowl games. USM concluded one of the program's best regular seasons by knocking off previously unbeaten and then-No. 6 ranked Houston, 49-28, in the CUSA title game and beating Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl.

Tar Heel Football Tradition



Kelvin Bryant



A product of Tarboro, NC, Kelvin Bryant was one of the most exciting runners I ever saw. I am sure many of the ECU defensive players he faked out in his 6 TD game still have severe ankle problems.



Lawrence Taylor



Lawrence Taylor was part of some great defensive teams at Carolina....just ask some of the QB's he ran over. Went on to become one of the greatest NFL football players of all time.



Charlie "Choo Choo" Justice



A member of the College Football Hall of Fame, Charlie Justice was one of the best football players ever at UNC. He was twice a Heisman Trophy runner-up. Set all kinds of records at UNC for offense.



Don McCauley



McCauley shattered the Carolina and the Atlantic Coast Conference record books with a dazzling senior season in 1970. He rushed for 1,720 yards and scored 21 touchdowns, setting marks which still stand. His 1,720 yards was an all-time collegiate high at the time, breaking O.J. Simpson's NCAA record. McCauley led the nation in all-purpose running that season. Went on to a great career with the Baltimore Colts.
