ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit appeared on Get Up! this morning to discuss everything that's going on in the college football world.

The biggest story in the college football world right now is Mack Brown.

North Carolina has officially hired the former Texas head football coach. The move was first reported on Monday morning and was confirmed today.

Herbstreit is a fan of the hire.

The ESPN college football analyst thinks the Tar Heels will be a program on the rise in the coming years.

"They're going to have quarterbacks, they're going to have athletes on both sides of the's going to be fun," Herbstreit said of North Carolina's future.

North Carolina is viewed as a program with some nice upside.

There are some who are doubting Brown's ability at this point in his career, but perhaps he'll be able to propel the Tar Heels upwards.
