I can't understand why anybody would want to play football at UNC. Hats off to Fedora, I guess. He probably connects well with recruits and their families.

The fans not showing up to watch their team play Lamar Jackson is just pathetic though. Maybe seeing a real fan base in action will make his "decision" easier.

"Hats off to Fedora" - nice subtle humor.

UNC has a lot to offer, just not so much in football. Fedora needs to step it up or the seat will get warm(er) - remember that he was on our list at one time, so just one more reason that Tanner hit a home run with Boom. Fedora is a good recruiter but it is hard to overcome the football apathy in Chapel Hill.

Yeah, but just imagine him at a school with resources and a fan base that cares. He should have tried to cash in at a larger school after last season almost winning in the ACC Championship Game and a #1 draft pick.

Can't remember who had openings, but I am sure some bigger schools would have let their current coach go to let Fedora come in. Texas A&M can't wait to get rid of Sumlin, Auburn may get tired of Malzahn pretty quickly, Tennessee could have an opening soon, and that's just the SEC.

Wasn't an overture made to Fedora by SC and he sent word he had no interest? I don't think he would be a good fit at TAMU or UT, but I could see him somewhere like Florida or Auburn.

The thought was that Fedora was given a courtesy call because he had the same agent as Tanner or had a connection to the search firm, can't remember which. In other words, the call was made to help Fedora get a raise at UNC. But it was never a serious pursuit.

Oh, I am not saying he would be a good fit anywhere specifically. But again, if he showed no interest in a better program, that's my whole point. He should have taken advantage of his recent success and gone to a school that cares about its program.

I'm way happier with Muschamp though, and to be honest, I don't think a lot of coaches were interested in the drastic rebuild that we required, especially when you would have to follow a legend like Spurrier. Muschamp wanted another opportunity and was willing to show everybody what he could do. I'm glad he's with us.

Fedora probably won't want a complete rebuild unless it's a blue-blood program. I just don't know if he will get that chance if UNC completely falls apart under his watch. 0-2 is not an ideal start.

Would be a huge pick-up (in terms of impact, but he is also a large individual) at a position of need, and one where you can play as a Freshman. With Sandidge, Kinlaw and some of the young DTs, we would be in good shape.

He was one of the key targets that we were looking at early - his commitment would help with closing the deal on the remaining big names, and might get some committed recruits to give us another look.

Black-out! If we get to 4-0, the recrootin' train be rolling, baby!

Man, this would be awesome. I wish him and Tindall would just pull the trigger and commit so they can get to work on Hollifield. Maybe they will start this weekend?

Would be nice but I doubt he would commit publicly at this point, unless he is being pressured. Even a silent would be nice though

Getting his commitment this weekend would be the cherry on top of what could potentially be the biggest weekend for our football program in some time.

Would not be surprised at all if he committed this weekend. It's his mom's birthday, so I could definitely see him committing to the school she attended on her birthday. No matter when he does commit, I feel confident in him landing here. Spurs Up!

Mmmmm....might not be a coincidence that Barkley just decommitted? JUCOs are the bomb for immediate help - unless you can get a HS player that has the talent to play from Day One. C'mon down!

TM said Barkley was "encourgaed" to look around.
