Bryn Renner's a rookie?

North Carolina first-year starting quarterback Bryn Renner hasn't gotten the hype this offseason of some of his other ACC peers, but odds are he's going to be getting some more attention this fall if he continues to play the way he has today against JMU.

He doesn't look like a rookie, that's for sure.

The Tar Heels are up 21-0 and Renner has completed all six of his passes for 113 yards and a touchdown. A year under former quarterback T.J. Yates and a significant number of reps with the first-team offense have clearly paid off. It's a great start for a new era at North Carolina with its new head coach, Everett Withers, and a new quarterback.
