UNC Spring Game 2012 Larry Fedora's New Spread Offense

Inside the Blue Zone, Kenan Stadium Chapel Hill, NC

A Very Different Offensive Look for UNC Fans

Saturday, April 14 the North Carolina Tar Heels kicked of their 2012 football season. New coach, Larry Fedora showed the UNC nation his spread offense, for most fans this was their first look.

In the early part of the scrimmage the new Tar Heel offense looked shaky at best. UNC players have only had a few weeks to learn Fedora's new offense, and it is very different from the NFL style scheme that Tar Heel players are use to. Still, the offense seemed to come together as the game went on. UNC's quaterback, Bryn Renner went 23-28 for 295 yards and two touchdowns for the game. Renner's numbers could really benefit from, Fedora's fast-paced, high octane system.

The running game seems to really benefit from the spread, as well. It seems that the spread creates some big holes for the UNC running backs to gash defenses. So, Gio Bernard could have a big season, running the ball and in the passing game, as a result of the new offense.

Tar Heel fans seem to be encouraged and ready to get past the distractions of the last two seasons. UNC announced there were 17,000 fans at the spring game. I estimated about 15,000 before the announcement.
