Tar Heels' version of 'Thunder' and 'Lightning' have the offense rolling

"Thunder" and "Lightning" nicknames for running-back combinations hardly are novel. The idea, on the other hand, of North Carolina having a running attack worthy of a nickname is somewhat different. So if Ryan Houston and Shaun Draughn want to start throwing around "Thunder" and "Lightning" comparisons in the wake of their performance against Georgia Tech on Saturday, that'll work just fine with the Tar Heels faithful.
