As the North Carolina football team prepares for its matchup against Rutgers, many wonder whether quarterback Bryn Renner will be as good as he was last Saturday against James Madison University.
Rutgers coach Greg Schiano is convinced he will be.
“He’s mobile and he can make every play,” Schiano said Monday in a press conference. “Not a ball hit the ground on Saturday … I don’t know if I’ve ever seen that in a college football game. He’s good. Very good.”
After his 22-of-23, two touchdown performance against the football championship subdivision Dukes, Renner had a film session with offensive coordinator John Shoop, and Shoop liked what he saw.
Renner said there are things he needs to work on, but right now, he’s focused on preparing for the Scarlet Knights.
“Their linebackers are really athletic, and they have a great defense,” Renner said. “I know coach Schiano is going to do a great job game planning for us and our scheme that we have, and I’m really looking forward to this Saturday and improving on what I did last Saturday.”
