CHAPEL HILL — If you’ve read even a little this week about North Carolina football, you’ve probably seen the word “tempo” or time or two. Or “pace.” Whichever. They both refer to the same thing: the speed of the Tar Heels’ offense.
Not necessarily the speed of running back Giovani Bernard or receiver Erik Highsmith or any other player. But the speed of the offense as a whole, related to how quickly it moves from one play to the next. The Tar Heels were fast in that 62-0 season-opening victory against Elon.
But not fast enough. At least, not according to coach Larry Fedora and offensive coordinator Blake Anderson.
