While Tech narrowly missed being shut out for the first time since 1997 in Saturday’s loss to Temple, Carter was hopeful in the offense’s progress.
“I feel like we’re just one step away,” Carter said. “We got to the red zone plenty of times (against Temple). It’s just punching it in there. The game could have been a lot different. I feel like just with time, with work, with paying attention to the little details, I feel like we’re just one step closer.”
One part of that development could be quarterback James Graham, who replaced starter Tobias Oliver in the second quarter of the Temple game. It’s possible that Graham could have a bigger role against the Tar Heels.
“He’s got a great arm,” Carter said. “He can throw it just as far as the football field itself. He’s great on his feet and just with him now getting a little more reps, he’s just getting smarter and smarter. Being able to get some reps with some of the starters, we can go ahead and get that chemistry going, and he’s really getting in a groove.”
