Re: A Tar Heels POV
I feel like the heat sapped the crowd of some energy. It was miserably hot, and the atmosphere felt a little fatigued even before the game. I also felt the absence of a guy like Swearinger, who was great at ramping up intensity, both from the crowd and defense. Hope someone steps into that role. But, the crowd was still decent in the early going when we were dominating. That long UNC drive seemed to bring the energy down, especially after the face mask penalty.
