Fourth in a series.
The renovation of Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium has
made it one of the most impressive facilities in the Atlantic
Coast Conference. But the home football team will probably
continue to resemble the old Blue Devil squad that has im- ,
pressed nobody with all of four wins in the past two years.
Still, with the season two weeks away, there is hope in ?
Durham that this could be the year to turn the football pro 4
gram around and produce the first winning season for the
Blue Devils since 1974. , -
"I know we haven't set the woods on fire the past few;
years," Duke coach Red Wilson said, "but I think better.'
thine": arc ahead for Diike football." '
"Coach Spurrier showed us the tricks of the trade," Jones "
said. "He taught us to make head movements, read the de
fensive backs things that opened it up for us on offense.
Having a coach like him lets us always be prepared for any
thing the defense throws at us."
While the Blue Devil passing game prospered last year, its
runners rarely pushed past the line of scrimmage, averaging
only -2.2 yards a carry.
"The running game has been one of Duke's weaknesses
the past four, five years," Wilson said. "We haven't had
those guys that get you 1 ,000 yards. But we will do better this
.year because we have established a passing game, and the de
fense has torespect that. If we Dut in the draws, the screens,

but players insist that this year will be different.
"Duke.has always said that it was going to be good; then
we die during the season," quarterback Ben Bennett' saidy "
"It's time to put up or shut up. If we don't do it this year, we
should be quiet" i J . -
Duke won't be saying much next year unless Bennett carr
repeat his performance of 1980, when he set four Blue Devil
passing records and was named ACC Rookie of, the Yearr
Since his boastful manner and flashy style on the field led de-
fenses to key on him, Bennett said he would be more control
led in his statements this year. '..,
"I said things that I shouldn't have last year," he said. -"It's
not that they weren't true, but I still shouldn't have said
them. I had an attitude that was positive. It was a slap in the
face of a lot of teams, and Duke needed that."
Bennett will team up with a talented receiving corps led by
wide receivers Cedric Jones, Chris Castor and Ron Frederick
and tight end Mike Fuqua. Castor is a long-ball threat,
grabbing one touchdown pass last year for 75 yards. Jones
caught six touchdown passes to lead the team in that category.
The revival of the passing game at Duke coincided with the
hiring of former Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier as
; I One reason for optimism about the running game is an ex
perienced offensive line led by two preseason All-ACC picks,
'Robert Osendine and Brian Baldinger, at tackle. Tee
Moorman $nd Greg Bamberger will play guard, and Philip

k Including three in one game against Clemson, and. ran one

Beyond Tabron there is little experience in the secondary.
- Cornerback Keith "Crenshaw is the only returning starter.
The two safety spots will be taken up by -senior Mike
Armstrong and junior Darrell Deaton.
Both of last year's starting linebackers return: Emmett
Tilley and Jimmy Tyson. Tyson led the team in tackles, and
Tilley was third, even though he missed the last three games
because of injury. "
Four starters return to the five-man defensive line. It is led
by senior co-captain Dan Yellott at nose guard, and defensive
ends Larry LeNoir and Charles Bowser and tackle F.A.
Martin are also back.

Soccer romps to win in opener
North Carolina's men's soccer team
opened its season with a convincing 8-0
win over High Point College Sunday on
Captain Ricky Marvin said he was
pleased with the opening performance.
"In the past we've had problems with
scoring," he said. "If we can continue to
shut teams down as we did today, with
our scoring we'll do real well."
UNC missed several good scoring op
portunities early, but Ben Abell came off
the bench midway through the half to
score two quick goals that sparked the
"We were having the problems putting
the ball in the net at first," Coach Anson
Dorrance said. "Ben came in and got us
going. If you're going to name a man of
the match, he's it."
Several of the team's highly touted re
cruits also showed signs of playing up to
pre-season expectations. Robert Kelly
played strong defense. Ken West came off
the bench to score a goal.
But Dorrance singled out the perfor
mance of Billy Hart man, who scored two
goals and assisted on two others in his
college career debut. "Even an untrained
eye can tell that Hartman is going to con
tribute to this team," Dorrance said.
