North Carolina Tar Heels Tickets for Sale

The North Carolina Tar Heels may be far more famous for its basketball dominance, but the football team suddenly deserves a little attention. The Tar Heels went 4-4 in the Coastal Division of the ACC in 2008 and went 8-4 overall. UNC ended up going to the Meineke Car Care Bowl to play West Virginia. WVU won 31-30.

This season the North Carolina Tar Heels open the season in the Top 25, ranking 22nd in the ESPN Power Rankings and 20th in the USA Today Poll. The only real standout on the team is defensive back Kendric Burney, though the secondary as a whole is not an overly dominant unit. The Tar Heel linebackers, however, are one of the most fearsome units in the conference.

Fittingly, the strength of this team is its defense. The defensive line could end up finishing among the best in the conference and that, combined with a great group of linebackers, means that this team could challenge for the Coastal Division title.

The offense is not looking great for Tar Heel football fans. The top three receivers from 2008 went to the NFL and the quarterback expected to start in 2009 transferred. This leaves T.J. Yates, a player that has had his share of problems with injuries, to fend without the playmakers to spread the field.

University of North Carolina athletic teams are known as the Tar Heels because North Carolina is "The Tar Heel State."

One legend has the nickname being applied to the state's residents as long ago as the Revolutionary War. According to this story, the troops of British General Cornwallis were fording what is now known as the Tar River between Rocky Mount and Battleboro when they discovered that tar had been dumped into the stream to impede their crossing. When they finally got across the river they found their feet completely black with tar. Their observation that anyone who waded North Carolina rivers would acquire tar heels led to the nickname first being used.

Others say the nickname was acquired during the War Between the States. During one of that war's fiercest battles a column supporting North Carolina troops was driven from the field. After the battle, the North Carolinians who had successfully fought it out alone, happened to meet the regiment which had fled to safety and were greeted with the question, "Any more tar down in the Old North State, boys?"

"No, not a bit," shot back one of the North Carolina soldiers. "Old Jeff's bought it all up," he went on, referring to Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy.

"Is that so? What's he going to do with it?"
