Despite the presence of record-setting quarterback Marquise Williams, the 2014 UNC offense struggled to block, was unable to establish a rushing attack and as a result was inconsistent week to week, series to series.
Fedora talked at Wednesday's Media Day about the progress Williams has made, detailed several other key offensive players and spoke to the new mindset of the offense, which includes a commitment to the ground game.
"That's been a point of emphasis this fall camp is we're going to run the football and we're going to be effective running the football," Fedora said.
Elijah Hood is one of the Tar Heels expected to play a major part in that ground game this season. According to Fedora, Hood works so hard during practice that at times coaches have to slow him down.
"My concern with Elijah is how hard he practices, everyday. Every single day," Fedora said. "I have to make sure that however he plays on September 3 he's still playing that on that first weekend in December. We have to do a great job of managing him. He is a coach's dream on the way he practices."
