Yep. They’re great. I’m convinced now that we should have lost to them.You can pretend UNC is devoid of talent all you want, but that's just not true. They worst finish they've had in recruiting in the modern era is 5th in the ACC - obviously FSU, Clemson, and Miami are going to out-recruit them every year, but let's not pretend they haven't done well for themselves on the trail. Fedora can't run a program and can't coach, but he was no slouch at recruiting. Injuries, suspensions, and inept program management is what sunk their ship before.
You can reiterate tired narratives all you want - yes, we've out-recruited them, yes, we should have won, yes, we're a perpetual disappointment - but devoid of talent they are not. Everyone and their moms should have seen that they were a prime candidate to turn a corner this year with Mack - at least those paying attention.
