UNC's Terminator Bright Spot

The Tar Heel defense has been a bright spot, only giving up 14.6 points per game, good for first in the conference. The Heels are also only giving up 251.2 yards per game even though they've surrendered 300+ rushing yards to the Ramblin' Wreck. Quite an impressive feat, unless the it just means the entire ACC is filled with a bunch of slaps who play defense like the Big XII.

With that said, during the show prep I was looking over the ACC's defensive statistics and did notice that for all the woes on offense the Heels have popped up quite prevelantly on the defensive sheets:

#1 in Pass Defense and Pass Defense Efficiency
#2 in Sacks (a big change from just a season ago)
#3 in Rush Defense

Sure its early but after getting our brains beat in by Al Groh, his 3-4 defense and his Michael Myers-esque relentless will to stay employed this is our lone bright spot.

On the individual note the Heels have the current front runner for the ACC Defensive Player of the year and as it stands it isn't Deunta Williams, Bruce Carter, Marvin Austin or Quan Sturdivant. No folks its sophomore Robert Quinn.

Quinn is a beast, he's a certified cyborg according to Doc Walker and thus will probably be using lasers to destroy quarterbacks for just one more season in Chapel Hill. The sophomore is first in the conference in tackles for loss with 9.5 and second in sacks with 6 for the season. To put that in perspective the Heels entire defensive line only amassed 11 sacks for the entire 2008 season.

With Georgia Southern on tap get ready, word is that Quinn normally drinks Eagle blood mixed with concrete to get ready for games.
