North Carolina vs. Elon Football: Positives and Negatives of Tar Heels' Win

It would be tough for Larry Fedora to ask for a better start to his North Carolina coaching career than laying down a 62-0 romping of the first opponent—albeit Elon. The Tar Heels were still one of only three FBS teams to score 60 points or more in their 2012 opener.

This isn't your usual Tar Heels football. We've seen the exciting, fast-paced basketball ever since Roy Williams took over the program. Now Larry Fedora has implemented the same theory on the gridiron—and it is every bit as entertaining to watch.

And don't tell these kids they don't have anything to play for. They aren't laying down just because they can't play in the ACC championship. They are full steam ahead, looking to take the Coastal Division.

That's Tar Heel pride.

UNC dominated this game from the jump, but they weren't without mistakes. Yes, even in a 62-point shutout, there will still be some things that will drive the fiery Fedora crazy in the film room.

With the first game in the books, it's time to talk the positives and negatives of this matchup.
