Saturday, November 8, 1975 The Daily Tar Heel 3
Seven Tar Heels leave Kenan limelight
Carolina blue seats, empty most of the
week, are supported by gray concrete.
Players see them every day, either from the
field or Field house. The bright metal seats
are neatly arranged in rows, with aisles
dividing them into sections. White numbers
are painted on each seat, corresponding to a
Fans who will fill the seats begin arriving
in Chapel H ill the night before the game, but
most drive into campus the following
morning. Cars jam parking lots and edge the
road like curbing. Policemen direct traffic,
students wait for tickets, and many spread
picnic lunches of chicken and the trimmings.
Gradually everyone files into Kenan
Stadium. There, they match the stub with the
seat number for a day-long dose of Carolina
"It seems like a carnival when you play
over there," said Bobby Trott this past week
in his Ehringhaus dorm room, which is just
across the road from Kenan. "But once the
game starts, you don't realize it."
Ray Stanford said, "It's (Kenan's) sorta
like home. I'm comfortable here."
Bill Paschall said, "What I'll remember
most is the beauty of Kenan. Not the fans;
they change so quick."
Today's game against Clemson is the last
home game for seven seniors. Three are left
from the 31 scholarship players who entered
UNC four years ago in 1972 as freshmen.
Seven more of the 31 should graduate next
year, having been red shirted a year ago, but
that leaves 24 who are no longer in the UNC
program. The three are Paschall, Deke
Andrews and James Betterson. Trott was a
The other seniors are Stanford, Roc
Bauman and Mark DiCarlo, who hasn't
played this year because of a knee injury.
Red shirted a year, they entered the program
"1 try not to think about playing the last
game in Kenan," Trott, a defensive back,
said. "I know I'm going to miss football. I've
been playing it since the seventh grade. HI
look back and be proud I played. I'll
remember that at times nobody thought I'd
play. I'll remember my teammates."
.Since arriving at UNC, Trott said he has
learned "how silly it is to be All-Carolina or
All-State. Players are getting hit out there
and can hardly breathe. You know they want
to win real bad, but I don't think people
realize it's just a game."
Paschall, a quarterback, said the most
memorable aspect of his career "is just being
associated with the players. That's good
enough for me. Fans usually remember the
bad things, like the missed two-point
conversion at State. Maybe that's a bad view
Offensive end Stanford said, "If at all, the
coaches will remember me as the little guy
w ith no speed, as the one who left his helmet
for the Duke game (I just forgot to take it),
and as the one who wore blue jeans to
Tulane." The players are supposed to wear
dress coats and slacks for road trips.
"I think it's the nature of people (fans) to
remember winners. People will remember
other people I care about. That's what
matters most to me ... my friends."
Stanford said he will most recall a catch
against Army last year and his season as a
freshman. That first year he caught 30
passes, lived in Teague Dormitory and didn't
have the pressure of varsity competition.
Andrews, a center specialist, said with a
laugh, "If 1 hadn't come to college, I'd
probably have been a truck driver in Virginia
or a gigolo in Monte Carlo.
"Seriously, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't
for football. 1 owe my whole college to
football. I'll always be indebted to football."
So few seniors on this 1975 team has been
often pointed out by UNC Head Football
Coach Bill Dooley. He noted it in preseason
interviews and in recent weeks has
underscored it. Carolina has dipped to a 2-6
record, the worst mark these players have
experienced. Two seasons ago the Tar Heels
went 4-7, but every other year since 1971 has
had a bowl game finale.
The 1972 freshmen were the first signees
after the death of UNC football player Bill
Arnold, who collapsed from heat exhaustion
in 1971 in preseason practice. UNC was not
held legally responsible for the incident, but
UNC coaches have said it hurt recruiting.

"I think it had a big influence," said
Paschall, adding that UNC didn't get many
top high school players in 1972 and that
among those signed, he remembered about a
dozen quitting the first several weeks.
"It's been a long (senior) year," said
Paschall. "It's the frustration of losing when
you don't think you should. The whole
season's been a disappointment."
Stanford said the season "situation has
kind of forced us (seniors) together. There's
going to be so much blame thrown on the
seniors at the end of the season. I think it's
fair. We weren't really sure how to act. We
couldn't pattern ourselves after other years;
we have so few seniors."
Stanford said he underestimated the
impact of senior leadership. "We've got so
many young people. They're not aware of
what kind of effort you've got to give.
Seniors know it's their last year and give
their all. Some of the others might have the
feeling that there's always next year."
Paschall said Dooley emphasizes senior
leadership, but he should not necessarily rule
out other players. "He's talked about the
senior class. As seniors, we don't like that.
There's just not a lot of senior football
players around. And unless you sign some
really super football players, they are not
going to play as well when they're young.
We've got good talent on this team; the
attitude just went down."
Andrews, the only one as a freshman to
play on the 1 1-1, 1972varsity,said,"Ihateto
end like this. I know we're a better team than
we're showing. We're still waiting to put it all
Concerning the final home game, Paschall
said, "The fans haven't been that good to us
lately. We'll see if we can't give them
something to scream about.
"I haven't thought about it (last Kenan
game) that much. It's really been pretty good
to me there.
"I guess I'll remember the Carolina blue
seats." He laughed jokingly.
