Bloated records muddy old feats


As Louisville was putting its final stamp on a 69-14 shellacking of the Tar Heels on Saturday, North Carolina fans had to be thinking, “it can’t get much worse than this.” Well, they were right. The loss featured the most points ever surrendered by a Tar Heel football team in the program’s (mostly) proud 117-year history. But a fairly recent phenomenon spanning college football has forever skewed the record books — making it impractical to compare Saturday’s game to UNC’s worst loss, a 66-0 drubbing at the hands of Virginia during the Taft administration.
