UNC football players running track
By DAVID McCULLOUGH
An arrangement has been made
between UNC football coach Dick
Crum and track coach Don Lockerbie
which they say should be mutually
beneficial to track and football. The
arrangement allows football players to
participate in indoor track.
Lockerbie says the track team is much
more competitive this year with the
addition of football players.
"We now - have about .10 football
players out for track ... and we're a
lot better team," Lockerbie said. "Coach
Crum and I have reached an agreement
in which we believe the football team
can help track and track can help the
Crum also said that he thought the
agreement would help both programs.
"I think it's going to help the track
team," Crum said. "The people involved
with track are in
skilled positions (on
the football team),
and they are mainly
sprints. It will help
speed during the off
season. For the peo
ple in the field
events it helps them
It might seem strange that such a
mutually beneficial arrangement has
been overlooked or ignored in the past.
Crum said the failure to generate a
previous arrangement is due to lack of
"This is the first year anyone has
expressed any interest in having (foot
ball players). Coach Marks coordinates
the whole thing," Crum said.
Michael Marks, the University's
athletic fitness director, recognized the
track potential of several football
"Basically, we have nine football
players who have the capability of
performing well in track and field," said
Marks, a former track athlete. "The
track team needs to utilize their talent."
He was quick to point out that the
athletes were not pressured into
"It's strictly a voluntary thing,"
Marks said. "They are still training
several days a week (with the football
team). We are doing a workout which
will complement both football and
"It's helping me become more explo
sive," said Darryl Durham, a defensive
back on the football squad. "The
twisting and lateral movement you use
in shot and discus are the same (move-
ment) you use on the football field. The
more you use it, the better you perfect
Tailback Brad Sullivan joined the
track team with the idea of increasing
his speed, but now his success" on the
track has altered his thinking.
"When I first joined track I just
wanted to get my 40 time down,"
Sullivan said. "Since I qualified for the
NCAA Indoor Championship, I've
shifted a lot of interest to track."
In making the agreement with Lock- :
erbie, Crum insisted that his athletes
maintain their academic work. .
"The only thing I told the guys on
the football team was as long as they
remain sound academically, they can
continue with the track," Crum said.
The success of the arrangement has
been evident from the first two track
meets, according to Lockerbie. "We're
on a roll," he said.

throwing motion to a more overhand
release since high school, could have
brought the problem to the surface.
"(The change in motion) wasn't
something that I planned," Maye said.
"It just happened, and it triggered
everything that happened in my arm.
"I was as surprised as anybody,"
Maye said. "All the things (Jobe)
described, and I never felt anything.
When I threw, it hurt a lot, but in
normal activities it didnt hurt at all."
Maye said Jobe has tentatively
scheduled the surgery on his shoulder
for April, but added that he is anxious
to get through the operation and into
the 10-12 month rehabilitation process.
Maye would still be eligible for the 1986
and 1987 seasons.
"It seems like ever since I've been here
IVe been hurt or waiting to get back
to being healthy," Maye said. "I'm
trying to get the surgery moved up
because the sooner, the better.
"I never thought it would be anything
this serious," Maye said. "(The injury)
really didn't cross my mind that much."
Maye's injury means there will be rft)
two-quarterback system at UNC next
season, but it also means that the Tar
Heels will lack a backup with
Junior Kevin Anthony, who won the
starting job a year ago but felt the
pressure of Maye from students and
alumni, returns, and along with Wes
Sweetser and Mike Bowman. Those
three will likely be the leaders at
quarterback next season.
What does a college quarterback do
with a year away from football?
"That's a good question," Maye said.
"I'm not sure yet. Now 111 have more
time to concentrate on my classes. Ill
just pray that my arm gets back to
normal as soon as possible.
"I'm not worried about anything but
being able to throw the football. If
things work out, they work out!? and
if they don't, well, IU have to live with
that, too." -

'TO's keep hurting Heels
A quick look at Monday night's
statistic sheet at the half of the UNC
Jacksonville basketball game in Greens
boro revealed a trend in North Carol
ina's season. '
The Tar Heels were shooting a
blistering 75 percent from the floor and
had an almost two-to-one edge in
rebounding. Yet they held a slim three
point lead over a Jacksonville team that
had some excellent athletes but had
been struggling this season.
' Why did North Carolina hold such
a slim lead when it was, statistically at
least, dominating the smaller Dolphins
The answer could be found in the
ninth column of the official NCAA
basketball box score, under the heading
"TO," as in turnovers. UNC had 10 in
the first half to only three for Jackson
ville, allowing the Dolphins to stay in
a game they should have been out of
(the score was 26-10, UNC, before the
errant Tar Heel passes began).
Turnovers those traveling calls,
three-second violations, careless passes.
"We still drill all the time on passing,"
Buzz Peterson said in the locker room
Monday after the Tar Heels had clipped
the Dolphins, 74-68, but not before
turning the ball over 17 times. "It just
comes from the mind. I think it's a lack
Earlier in the year, the Taf Heels were
having the same problem. In games
against Wichita State, Arizona State
and Hawaii Pacific, UNC averaged 23
giveaways a game.
But starting with the Stetson game
Jan. 3, the turnovers decreased. UNC
averaged just 1 1 turnovers from the
Stetson game to the Southern Meth
odist game ten days ago.
Since then, the Tar Heels have
regressed. In the N.C. State game a
week ago, UNC gave up the ball 10
times in the first half and three more
times in its first five possessions of the
second half. They tightened up and
walloped the Wolfpack in the last 16
minutes, but ended up with 15 turnovers
and had to recover from a 15-point
After that. Duke's swarming defense
took advantage of 17 Tar Heel givea
ways with a 93-77 win.
But Monday's game featured 1 7 more
turnovers against a Jacksonville team
that employed a reasonably packed-in,
sagging zone defense. Not the kind of
pressure defense that forces turnovers.
"Careless" was the word going
around the UNC locker room after the
"We need to take our time and make
sure of the easy passes," Steve Hale said.
"There's no need to make spectacular
Peterson emphasized that the team
was not tired.
"It's just the mid-season blues,"
Peterson said. "You think you've got
the routine down, but you've still got
Kenny Smith seemed to have the
"mid-season blues" as well. "Once you
play so many games in a row, you start
to remember some bad passes you've
made lately and you think, 'I better not
throw that pass'," Smith said. "You see
(Maryland players) Bias and Gatlin and
(Duke's Johnny) Dawkins every time
down the court."
Coach Dean Smith wasn't too con
cerned about all this turnover talk,
though. Smith said many of the tur
novers came from lob passes to the big
men underneath, and that the number
of baskets outweighed the few turnovers
"If we're going to use big people in
our lineup, we might lose the ball a few
times," Smith said. "We'll work on (the
turnovers), but we're still going to throw
Granted, the Tar Heels aren't giving
up enough turnovers to warrant calling
out the National Guard: they are only
giving the ball up about one more time
per game this season than they did last
year. But they are forcing two less
turnovers a game this year than they
did last year, and they have less natural
talent to overcome the problem this
When North Carolina is executing
with its passes, it is one of the better
teams in the country. When it is not,
it beats Jacksonville by six points.
