Team preview: North Carolina

The winds of change swept some of the cobwebs out of North Carolina's football program during the offseason. But will it be enough to take the Tar Heels off that maddening cusp of being just good enough to make a bowl game? Two years ago, John Bunting's team did play in the postseason, losing to Boston College in the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Last year, a 30-3 loss in the season finale against ACC Coastal Division champion Virginia Tech prevented the Tar Heels from qualifying for a bowl. Bunting would like to remove all doubt by establishing this year's team early as the most successful since he took over the program in December 2000. (ESPN.com)
