New, 2 comments

Independent of Carolina’s defense (a story for another day), who will be behind center against the Heels this year?

Jacob Cowden (@jacobcowden28) wrote about it, so you know what that means: we had to talk about it. Host Chad Floyd (@Chad_Floyd) brought the quarterback-ranking Tar Heel Blog colleague to discuss his rankings, break down some rationale, and let Chad quibble very slightly with his picks.


  • Chad didn’t do his research on Mercer’s QB;
  • COASTAL CHAMP Kenny Pickett of Pitt;
  • Interesting battles at N.C. State, Georgia Tech, and (possibly?) Miami;
  • Ryan Willis: decent-to-good quarterback, should’ve just started his career at North Dakota State;
  • Jake Bentley, and comparisons to Jake Browning (formerly of Washington), and it being confusing because this year’s Washington QB is Jacob Eason and we’re talking to Jacob Cowden;
  • Trevor Lawrence: the best college QB this millennium.
