2018 North Carolina Tar Heels Predictions: Team Strengths
Only up from here: There are so many question marks on this team, it’s hard to find many strengths but one is there isn’t anywhere to go but up.
The team only won three games last year, and if they win less then three games this year, it might be time to shut down the university.
They have a good coaching staff, and the players are getting older which should help, but it still could be a very trying year in Chapel Hill.
2018 North Carolina Tar Heels Predictions: Team Weaknesses
Both Lines have issues: Last year both the offensive and defensive line had issues, and they lost a few players off both of those teams.
They are going to get younger, and usually, that isn’t a good thing especially for the offensive line. The offensive line needs to do a better job of keeping the quarterback upright.
There are going to be growing pains with the offensive line, and it could be ugly. On the defensive line they are also going to get younger.
They need to put more guys in the backfield and try to wreck havoc. If they don’t put pressure on opposing teams quarterbacks, it could be a long season.
Passing Troubles: The passing game was about as ugly as you could get last year, and this year it’s not going to be much better.
Two of the top three receivers from last years team are gone, and there is still a big question at the quarterback position.
Whoever does play needs to limit the turnovers through the air, and if they can do that the passing game can be a lot better.
North Carolina Tar Heels Prediction: 6-6
This North Carolina Tar Heels team is going to be better, but the big question is will it be enough to make a bowl game this year.
A weak non conference schedule will help them advance to a bowl game, but it might take till the final few weeks to get in.
