    Apparently Julius Peppers means a lot to this poll.

    Can't forget "Fast" Willie Parker, though he didn't actually play at Chapel Hill.

    Parker played a little bit. Enough that on the 'heels' first play from scrimmage in 2001, he ran the ball 78 yards for a touchdown. It was also the first game of the Ralph Friedgen era and seeing that I thought I was in for another Vand(erlinden) Wagon run of Maryland coaches. Thankfully I was wrong.

    Also don't forget Dre Bly.

    That's what I was thinking. The only three I could come up with off the top of my head were Peppers, Bly and Ronald Curry.

    Ebenezer Eckuban, too (god, I completely misspelled that).

    Atlanta's Alge Crumpler, Dallas' Greg Ellis, Denver's Ebenezer Ekuban, Jaguars LB David Thornton and Colts Pro Bowl center Jeff Saturday played for UNC, off the top of my head. I'm sure there are other good players from there.
