It would be pretty dang good. And thats the potential of this football team.Thats the balance for Fedora. His Tar Heels (4-1, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) sit atop the leagues Coastal Division after rallying to beat Pittsburgh and then-No. 12 Florida State with scores in the last 5 seconds each time. But UNC is still spotty on defense, while the offense that has the potential to sprint past anyone still has moments that Fedora wants to clean up.Against the Seminoles, for example, it was Elijah Hoods fumble near the FSU goal line. Fedora said there was some gloom when coaches reviewed film of a thrilling win.Everybody knows you cant keep living on the edge like that, Fedora said.The Hokies (3-1, 1-0) are coming off a bye week and bring a tough defense to face UNCs rolling offense.

Junior college transfer Jerod Evans has started all four games, throwing for 13 touchdowns with just one interception.DEFENSIVE CONCERNS: The Tar Heels are still up and down on defense. They struggled for three quarters against Pitt before coming up with two straight three-and-outs in the fourth quarter to set up the comeback win, then held FSU to 14 points through the first three quarters before giving up 21 in the final quarter.
