UNC has 17 guys on its roster. GU has 12. How many can be on a DI roster, and are all of those who aren't redshirting game-eligible?

GU's roster
2 Jeremy Pargo G 6-2 220 Senior Chicago, IL
3 Demetri Goodson G 5-11 164 Freshman Spring, TX
4 Chris Pontarolo-Maag G 5-11 175 Junior Quincy, WA
5 Austin Daye F 6-11 200 Sophomore Irvine, CA
11 Andrew Sorenson G 6-2 172 Senior Olympia, WA
15 Matt Bouldin G 6-5 224 Junior Highlands Ranch, CO
21 Robert Sacre C 7-0 247 Sophomore North Vancouver, BC
22 Micah Downs G 6-8 194 Senior Kirkland, WA
32 Steven Gray G 6-5 208 Sophomore Bainbridge, WA
42 Josh Heytvelt F 6-11 260 Senior Clarkston, WA
45 Will Foster C 7-5 273 Junior Bonney Lake, WA
50 Ira Brown F 6-4 235 Senior Conroe, TX

UNC's roster
1 Marcus Ginyard G-F 6-5 220 Senior Alexandria, VA
2 Marc Campbell G 5-11 175 Junior Wilmington, NC
4 Bobby Frasor G 6-3 210 Senior Blue Island, IL
5 Ty Lawson G 5-11 195 Junior Clinton, MD
11 Larry Drew II G 6-1 180 Freshman Encino, CA
13 Will Graves G-F 6-6 245 Sophomore Greensboro, NC
14 Danny Green G-F 6-6 210 Senior North Babylon, NY
15 J.B. Tanner G 6-0 185 Senior Hendersonville, NC
21 Deon Thompson F 6-8 245 Junior Torrance, CA
22 Wayne Ellington G 6-4 200 Junior Wynnewood, PA
24 Justin Watts G 6-4 205 Freshman Durham, NC
30 Jack Wooten G 6-2 190 Senior Burlington, NC
32 Ed Davis F 6-10 215 Freshman Richmond, VA
35 Patrick Moody F 6-4 195 Senior Asheville, NC
40 Mike Copeland F 6-7 235 Senior Winston-Salem, NC
44 Tyler Zeller F 7-0 220 Freshman Washington, IN
50 Tyler Hansbrough F 6-9 250 Senior Poplar Bluff, MO

BTW, blue chips appear to have huge rosters. Kentucky has 19, UCLA has 18, Kansas has 16, this Duke has a mere 14.

Div 1 teams are allowed 13 scholarship players (which includes any players who are redshirting).

All the rest of the players on North Carolina's roster have to be walk ons.

Good catch. I guess we do compare, and I imagine teams with bigger budgets can afford the travel and lodging for more walk-ons (they do get to travel and have it covered, right?).

Only two walkons can suit up, making 15 total players.

They are walk ons. Carolina is one of the few teams that still has a JV program. Each year they will pick up players from that program to be part of the varsity.

North Carolina is one of only a handful of teams in the nation that still has a Junior Varsity team. The JV team suits up with the team for every game and a handful of the players are listed on the active roster, and occasionally get an opportunity to get into the games when they are blowouts.

Most programs abandoned JV teams after freshman were declared eligible to play in the early 70s. Dean Smith kept the JV team primarily to give his assistant coaches an opportunity for head coaching responsibilities. Interestingly enough, Roy Williams was one of Smith's assistants who piloted the JV team for a few years. I think it is pretty neat.

Here's an article about the UNC JV squad (http://msn.foxsports.com/cbk/story/9273528/Tar-Heels%27-JV-team-continues-playing-in-anonymity?CMP=OTC-K9B140813162&ATT=99).

I see Toewon beat me to it. Welcome Toewon. Nice name.

Moody, tanner, and wooten are walk-ons for UNC off of the JV team. Graves is suspended for the rest of the year and Ginyard, our best defender, is red-shirting after continued problems after an injury recovery.

Here is a pretty simple UNC depth chart that will probably be used:
Hansbrough
Lawson
Green
Ellington
Thompson
Davis
Frasor
Zeller
Drew II
Maybe Copeland

Campbell, Watts, and the others I mentioned earlier will probably not see any time.

lol Actually there usually are some decent players on the team. I was at a coaching clinic a couple of years ago and watched a kid named Dewey Burke hit 23 out of 25 3 pointers in a shooting drill. He was one of the kids pulled up from the JV.
