Nothing's for sure on North Carolina's men tennis team.
Everything from uncertainty surrounding its top six players to injuries to an upset loss to Furman could make some coaches worry about the future.
But Sam Paul doesn't worry. Instead, the Tar Heels' coach is looking forward to the rest of the year and sees his club as a contender for the ACC title.
"Our goals are still the same as always," Paul said. "We want to win the ACC and make it into the NCAA tournament."
Last year, UNC fell just short of one goal.
With the return of senior All-American Tripp Phillips from surgery, UNC finished 2000 with a 18-6 record, but placed second to Duke in the ACC standings at 6-2.
The Tar Heels went on to the NCAA tournament, losing to regional host and national semifinalist Tennessee 4-2 in the second round.
It's hard to say what UNC has in store this season, even after four matches and a fall season filled with competitive tournaments.
Phillips is gone, and senior Chad Riley recently returned from an injury which had sidelined him since August. Sophomore Tyne Brownlow has also caught the injury bug and is likely out for the season.
