Extra Points: Speed Is A Key For Tar Heels

Here's how you know your defense is getting to the right place: Your cupboard is stocked well enough that you can move a cornerback to safety, a safety to linebacker, a linebacker to end and an end to tackle. You don't give up anything from a strength and stature standpoint with the individual moves and you get a faster player at the new position. That's what Mack Brown and Carl Torbush did in the spring of 1995 with a Tar Heel defense coming off 40- and 35-point blemishes in the final two games of the 1994 season (a win over Duke and a loss to Texas in the Sun Bowl.)
