“North Carolina, c’mon raise up, take your shirt off, spin it rod your head like a helicopter.” Maybe Peteye Pablo isn’t your style. Perhaps General Johnson and the Chairmen of the Board with “sweet Carolina girls, sweet southern pearls” is more your speed? I’m trying to pump you up with music, because your UNC Tar Heels aren’t allowed to go bowling this college football season. Bummer.

Neither is Ohio State in 2012. Which is funny to me, because one of my closest friends has two favortie college teams: UNC and OSU. Guess I e has to wait until college basketball season for both. Even though this year we’ll see both programs drop off a bit. Well, at least the football Tar Heels will have a fun to watch fast paced offense going for them.

There are times when I wish I didn’t have to rank all my 77 in early June. Because quite a few things happen between then and kickoff. Of course, very few are as dramatic as what’s going on in Chapel Hill. I knew they were a college football program in turmoil, and that Butch Davis was in jeopardy. However, had I knew it was going to be interim leader and former Defensive Coordinator Everett Withers manning the sidelines, I would have ranked them in the 40s or 50s. Not that I’m so down on Withers. It’s just that any team firing it’s coach in August is in well, dire straits.

Still, there’s some NFL talent left on that defense. And I think the graduation of QB T.J. Yates could be addition by subtraction. Yes, I know he broke 37 school passing records, but that’s only because he started all four years. He’s like football Tyler Hansbrough- put up a lot of great numbers because he just wasn’t good enough to leave school early.
