UNC football looks to rise above mediocrity

UNC had the third-best scoring offense in the ACC with 33.2 points per game. UNC’s passing offense ranked second in the league.

Again, it’s establishing a vision of where you want the program to go and being positive." (Inside Carolina)

Inside The Locker Room: Switzer's Steadfastness

This is the Switz I’ve come to know. The one to leave the facilities after everyone just to go on the ball machine more. The one who in between classes watches whatever film he can get his hands on. The one who will do an extra rep in the weight room because he knows his opponent won’t. When we go out in the fall, Ryan Switzer practices as if he was playing for the ACC Championship every time.
