Don't tell Carolina boosters times are tight. Tar Heel fans haven't let a little thing like a recession get in the way of a $70 million expansion for UNC's home football field, Kenan Stadium. At least it's all private cash, given by choice. Not so in the case of the $9.4 million in taxpayer money earmarked in the proposed state Senate budget to subsidize scholarships for out-of-state athletes, including nearly $2.5 million that would go to Carolina.
