Heading into Hickory from Cullowhee, it was wet, rainy, and foggy, which may have been God's way of foreshadowing the game between the #14 Lenoir-Rhyne Bears and the #1 Ferris State Bulldogs. However, pulling up to the newly upgraded Moretz Stadium, it's evident that the Bears are building something special in Hickory. Currently a Division II university, I believe that the stadium and facility upgrades are preparing the Bears to jump from Division II to the FCS. There's a reason the defending Division II National Champions made the trip from Central Michigan to Hickory, North Carolina.
In the past decade, UNC has had a decent lineup of quarterbacks. Trubisky, Howell, Williams, and now sitting in the driver's seat for the Tar Heels, Drake Maye. The win against Florida A&M this past weekend kicked off Mack Brown's fourth season back with the Heels, which means, aside of a few redshirt seniors, every player is Brown's recruit.
