THE DAILY TAR HEEL
A WAVE OF optimism has been sweeping the Carolina canmus
this past week over the chances of the Tar Heels against their tra
ditional rival Duke here in Kenan stadium this afternoon, but ac
cording to Coach Carl Snavely the loyal Carolina fans may be get
ting set for a let-down.
In bur last press conference with the Silver Fox last night after practice,
the Carolina mentor was none too certain of what will be forthcoming when
the Tar Heels meet the Blue Devils this afternoon. "We are facing our tough
est opposition of the season," Snavely opined, "with the possible exception
of Tennessee. But even Tennessee's line is no stronger than Duke's. That is
where the trouble lies. They are good in the line from one end to the other, es
pecially Mote, DeRogatis and Milner."
Gathering in the opinion of some of the outsiders, we find that the Asso
ciated Press picked the Blue Devils to win, as did one or two of the state's
leading sports writers. However, the field was about divided evenly on the
matter, thus making it near a toss-up affair. It is hard to favor either team,
although we personally have gone out on a limb to pick the Tar Heels by
a two-touchdown margin.
5 In a snapshot analysis, we are near certain of one thing. That being the
fact that the game will be either won or lost in the performance of the for
ward walls of the respective teams. If Duke is successful in halting the Car
olina ground attack, it could mean plenty of trouble, even though the Tar
Heels have had some success in the air lately.
From a psychological standpoint things are at a peak for both teams. Last
weekend saw both Duke and Carolina play what was probably the best game
of the season for the two teams. And there is no reason to think anything
but that they will be at a high peak of efficiency today.
Duke, as has been said before, is noted for pointing for a single game, and
this is the one the Blue Devils want above all. But so do the Tar Heels want
it, for they haven't taken a game from the West Durham institution since
1940. And you can rest assured from that thai you will see by far the best
game of the year at Kenan stadium when you take your seat this afternoon.
It's going to be a tough river' to cross, and you- have the word of Carl
Snavely for that, so don't be surprised at the outcome. Let's only stick with
the Tar Heels and pray for that' first victory of the 1940's. We stay with our
score, 21-7, Tar Heels, with our fingers crossed for the Tar Heel offensive
train, Choo Choo Justice ace "train-Driver." v
Doing some more prognosticating on the battle of the year, we have the
word of Coach Peahead Walker at Wake Forest that the game is going to end
in a 13-13 tie. .Take that as you will, but Peahead's rating the game even as
far as he is concerned is enough to prove that there wijl be no pushover for
either team come 2 p.m. today. Walker has played both Duke and Carolina, and
lost to both, and his opinion is to be valued. . .Smith Barrier in Greensboro
