    Power-Ranking College Football's Top 25 Teams by Returning Starters

    No. 2: North Carolina

    This past winter, a record number of players decided to forgo their senior seasons and enter the NFL under the threat of a rookie salary cap next year.

    The validity of that threat aside, the effect it will have on college football next year will be profoundly felt.

    Many of 2009's top teams will feature all new faces on offense and defense. In a sport that places so much emphasis on experience and returning starters, that might not be welcome news.

    Using Phil Steele's list of returning starters by team, and taking a closer look at the departures, I've re-ranked the top 25 football teams for 2010 based on the number and strength of starters coming back this fall. I'm 100 percent confident this list will shock you.


    No. 2: North Carolina



    Nineteen is UNC's magic number, and it's all thanks to Robert Quinn, who will return for his senior season and convinced many of his teammates to do the same.

    That defense finished sixth in the country against the run. Losing Cam Thomas at defensive tackle will hurt, but four-star end Brandon Willis enrolled early and could slide inside to free up lanes for Quinn and Quinton Coples.

    The UNC offense started to click down the stretch, with T.J. Yates, Greg Little, and Erik Highsmith cooking up some positive chemistry.

    Make no mistake: This team can throw, as we saw during Yates' performance in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in 2008. It's just a matter of keeping the QB protected. The good news is that line remains intact and gets a solid impact freshman in OT James Hurst.

    If defense is the order of the day, then UNC's has what it takes to challenge for an ACC title and, if they can beat LSU in week one, even more.

    I sympathize with you. My eyes have seen stranger things than NC becoming a powerhouse in football. I have witnessed the Buccaneers and the Saints win a Superbowl.

    I'm very suprised that UNC is ranked that high... C'mon, they might be strong this year, but not THAT strong... ...

    ... Seriously though, the schedule should be somewhat favorable after the first game against LSU, and even that one is a home game for the Heels.... Away games at Rutgers, Virginia, Miami, FSU and Duke should all be very "doable".

    ... And 'ya gotta love the week off against William & Mary right in the middle...

    While I think the ACC has somewhat fallen-off in recent years, I have definitely been impressed with what I've seen from the Heels.

    Butch is heading the program in the right direction. We used to be a top 10 team when Mack Brown was here. **** that was a long time ago.

    Yes he is...

    ... I gotta admit that I've only seen a few of their recent games because the ACC hasn't excited me...

    But my team out in LA has let me down with the recent departure of Pete Carroll and the hiring of that little punk Kiffin.

    Gonna be an interesting season to say the least....

    BTW, just for your information, keep track as best you can of all the various teams... We do a "College Football Bowl Extravaganva" contest... I've done it the last two years... Knowledge (and a bit of luck) is crutial!... So pay attention all season....
