|The color black is used more in UNC's new uniforms.|
The all-black uniform marks he first installment of the new "Tar Pit Series," which will feature an alternate uniform or helmet for one game each year. This year's alternate uniform color has been taken from the black tar in the Tar Heel logo.
"Our kids are excited about the new uniforms," said head coach Larry Fedora. "They saw them for the first time Friday and they are fired up about wearing them this year. We wanted to design a uniform that connected our team to The Tar Pit, our name for the student section. Make no mistake, Carolina Blue and white will always be our traditional colors."
