Line Must Anchor Tar Heel Defense

It's been said that football is a game won "in the trenches." If that's true, perhaps it helps explain why the Tar Heels managed just three wins in 2006. The team finished last in the ACC in run defense, allowing 172.8 yards per game on the ground. That was good enough for 100th among NCAA Division I-A teams. The Tar Heels also had just 23 sacks, placing them 10th in the ACC. The 2007 defensive line aims to change that. (Tar Heel Blue)
