Carolina Convo: what are realistic expectations for this football season?
National publications aren't particularly bullish on the Heels' chances this season, and that's understandable after a 5-18 mark with just two ACC victories over the past two seasons.
Still, the cupboard isn't bare for Mack Brown's first season back and playing in the Coastal Division means anyone has a chance.
What's the bare minimum for an acceptable season and what would turn this into a great season? Is there a must-win game on the schedule?
