A look back at 1979 UNC football
Rarely does a team that finishes .500 in league play go down in history, but that's exactly the case with the '79 Heels. This was actually quite a talented group with Amos Lawrence and Doug Paschal carrying the load, a terrific offensive line, and Lawrence Taylor, Buddy Curry, Ricky Barden, Darrell Nicholson, Calvin Daniels and the unforgettable Steve Streater (also its punter) on defense.
ACC predictions for the 2010 season
Former North Carolina and NFL LB Buddy Curry: Tar Heels QB T.J. Yates will reach his potential. “This will be a bounce-back year for T.J. Yates. This past year he wasn’t as productive as you’d like, but he’s got all the tools. He’s got a good arm, he’s smart, he’s big enough, and he can take the hits out there.”
DE Justin Curry to sign with Tar Heels
Former Buford star Justin Curry has chosen to follow his famous father's footsteps to the University of North Carolina. Curry, who enjoyed an outstanding senior campaign in his first season as a starter, is expected to "grayshirt" next fall, meaning he won't enroll at Chapel Hill until January 2007; therefore he will not count against North Carolina's scholarship limit for the upcoming season. Curry is the son of former North Carolina All-American and former Falcons linebacker Buddy Curry.
