TST: 'North Carolina Could Be 3-2'

Ken Tysiac, the UNC beat writer for the Charlotte Observer, was a guest on Triangle Sports Talk's "Morning Sports Drive," hosted by Taylor Zarzour. Listen to a replay of Zarzour's discussion with Tysiac about Carolina football ...


"But really in my mind something that a lot of people have forgotten is the fact that NC State was 10 points up in the third quarter and then North Carolina just kicked their behinds for about 25 minutes. And North Carolina to me really proved over that 25 minutes that they're a much better team than NC State...

"Last weekend was really encouraging for two reasons for the Tar Heels. First of all, they won a game against a decent team on the road. And then, take a look at what they've got now. Utah is not as good as last year - not by a longshot ... so I think this is a winnable game this week for the Tar Heels. ... A week ago I'd have said Louisville was just another thumping for UNC the following week, but Louisville goes to South Florida and gets the snot kicked out of it and I really think you're looking at the possibility that North Carolina could be 3-2 and then who knows what could happen? They still have Duke and Maryland on the schedule ...

"I think [Barrington] Edwards showed some burst and more importantly an ability to get vertical and get upfield. I thought he was doing too much dancing early, but he did a nice job getting up the field against NC State and I think he's ready to go ahead and be an 80-yard per game back for the Tar Heels. He certainly showed it against a defense that had shut everybody else out."
