Why is the ram the mascot of UNC?

Two different, but plausible, origins of the North Carolina "Tarheel" nickname. of which I am aware, are: ' 1) Tar stuck on the heels of sailors, longshoremen and other persons working on and around ships, docks etc in North Carolina's first settlements, all on the sea cost. The seams on hulls,wharfs, piers and decks were covered with tar as waterproofing: Tar Heels 2) During the Civil War, North Carolina troops fought so steadfastlhy that they gave no ground in one battle. It was observed by a Confederate general (possibly Lee) that they held their ground like their heels were stuck to the ground with tar: Tar Heels. Of course, this origin could actually be in reference to the first one, that is Lee, from Virginia knew of their maritime "Tar Heel" moniker and adapted it to fit the situation at hand

Is a tar heel a ram?

UNC's mascot is a RAM. The state North Carolina is known for it's early settlement trading of tar. NC had tar springs and used it in bartering. I guess for that reason they call themselves Tarheels. They seem a little mixed up to me in not knowing their identity. Not one person at UNC has ever stepped in tar. They never call themselves Rams, nor does any commentator.
