Marvin Austin could have played for Florida State or LSU or Southern Cal and been just one of the high school All-Americans those programs seem to collect. But when the nation's No. 1 defensive tackle prospect selected North Carolina in February 2007, he chose to become the face of a rebuilding effort. One year into that process, Austin and the Tar Heels seem ahead of schedule.
UNC defensive tackle Marvin Austin ready to shine
The Fayetteville Observer
Ryan Taylor will start a new football season with new duties and new responsibilities, and he'll go through on-the-job training Saturday when North Carolina opens against McNeese State at Kenan Stadium.
Taylor, a North Carolina junior and Mount Tabor graduate, has switched positions and is now a linebacker. He played tight end his first two seasons.
Tar Heels' Taylor still adjusting
The Winston-Salem Journal
Judging by the number times "or" shows up on North Carolina's depth chart, a number of positions are still up for grabs as the Tar Heels begin their game-week preparations for their season opener against McNeese State on Saturday.
Either that or there will just be a lot of positions where different players split time.
