Cram's Tar Heels have talent

By EDDY LANDRETH
The 1986 season brings with it
great expectations for the UNC
The past two years has been a
painful learning experience for the
squad. Playing with many talented,
but inexperienced young athletes has
proven to be difficult task for head
Coach Dick Crum and his staff.
But this year should be different.
Many of the starters are now sea
soned veterans, with hopes of many
victories and possibly a bowl game.
Yet, there are some obstacles in
the path to glory. After much
criticism for a weak schedule, the
football Tar Heels began playing
many more difficult foes last year.
The problem is that many of these
people are on the road this time
As usual; the defense will probably
be strong point of the team. This
seems to be a trademark of North
Defensive tackle Ruben Davis,

he remains healthy, he should have

There may be quite a struggle for
the quarterback position this fall,
between Mike Bowman and Jona
than Hall. Hall got a considerable
amount of playing time this past year
and did an excellent job. In the past,
Coach Crum has never hesitated to
use two quaterbacks, so we may see
a lot of both men.
There is a third factor in the
quarterback story, and his name is
Mark Maye. Maye was highly rated
prospect out of high school, who was
viewed as Carolina's ticket to the top
when he first arrived in Chapel Hill.
A stumbling block in Maye's path
to glory was a shoulder injury, but
there is hope he may contend for the
job this fall. If Maye returns in full
form, the contest for quarterback
could really become interesting.

game, according to Athletic Director
"We felt it would be best to be
consistent in our starting time,"
Swofford said. "Plus, by starting a
little bit earlier, fans will have more
time after the game to spend on
campus and in town."
The Tar Heels added a new coach
to the staff this year. Lawson Hol
land, formally an assistant with
Clemson, joined the staff as the new
running back coach. He is regarded
as an excellent recruiter. The position
was previously held by Dale Evans,
who left for a job as athletic director
and head football coach at Dorman
High School in Spartanburg, S.C.
This year should prove to be a
great challenge for the North Carol
ina football team, but if they can win
at least eight games with this sche
dule, there should be a bowl game
in the picture.
