CHAPEL HILL — If you watched North Carolina’s dominant 62-0 victory against Elon on Saturday at Kenan Stadium, you probably noticed a couple things: For one, the Tar Heels looked quite impressive against a clearly-overmatched opponent.
Two, Kenan was far closer to empty than full. At least in the second half, when uncomfortable heat and an uncompetitive game drove people out of the stadium. By the end, when the final seconds were ticking away, there might have been only a few thousand left in Kenan Stadium.
