UNC: Pro Football Player Factory

Pro Bowl Center Jeff Saturday, one of several UNC alums on this years roster, signs an autograph enroute to last year's Pro Bowl.

Looking at the Pro Bowl Roster, looks like after the "U", North Carolina produced the most pro-bowlers. Although the Tar Heels' won loss record for the past few years doesn't show it; Carolina clearly is a football factory.

(Number of Pro Bowlers followed by college)

6- Miami (Fla.)
4- North Carolina
3- Southern California, Georgia, NC State
2- Oregon State, California, LSU, Purdue, Tennessee, TCU, Penn State, Texas, Oklahoma State, Maryland, Arizona, Clemson, Iowa, Florida State, Oklahoma, Virginia

Additionally, eight of the twelve playoff teams had Tarheels on their rosters. John Bunting didn't do much winning, but (and we never really payed much attention before) seems to have put a lot of guys in the league.

Willie Parker got to the league despite of John Bunting and co.
