The six volleyball freshmen should help the team immensely if they can adjust to campus life
Frosh give up much for volleyball
By PHYLLIS A. FAIR
How well a person hits or spikes the ball or her
physical appearance aren't the main things that attract
UNC head volleyball coach Peggy Bradley-Doppes.
When Doppes recruits someone to play for North
Carolina, she looks at the player's grades first, then
her personality and physical characteristics.
According to Doppes, student-athletes dont come t
here just to play ball. They're also here to receive
a good education. They know that it is going to be
a little bit tougher on them because they aren't just
students or athletes but both.
A lot of pressure is put on all athletes, but even
more so on the freshmen, because they are adjusting
to a new way of life. They have to perform well
both on and off the court, she said.
"The freshmen who are playing ball have a little
bit more pressure, and we (the team and coaches)
try to alleviate that pressure," Doppes said.
"When an athlete is on the floor she has pressure
put on her, but if she knows her grades are good,
some of the pressure is taken off," said Sharon
German, a freshman from Dillion, S.C.
"1 came to Carolina because I wanted a good
education," she said. "I want to be the best I can
as an athlete, and I want my grades to be good."
German said she knew in order to perform well
off the court and in the classroom that she would
have to give up something and discipline herself.
"1 plan to cut out most of my social life this year,
because I'd like to start out on a good foot," she
A lot of background checking is done into the
prospective players. Doppes talks to friends, teachers
and acquaintances of a recruit to find out what type
of person she is.
"1 look for somebody who will work for the
Carolina tradition," she said. "I want to see people
who can budget their time."
The student-athletes know they, like other students,
are going to be left with some free time on their
hands, but they need to know how to discipline
themselves, Doppes said.
"1 think discipline is good for a team," said Lisa
Joffs, a freshman team member from Boulder, Colo.
"I could play volleyball all the time, but I know
academics and volleyball come first in that order."
Carole Ann LaMorte, a freshman from Darien,
Conn., said it is going to be tough playing volleyball
while also doing well in school.
"It's something everyone expects," she said. "It's
going to take a lot of time. It's not going to be easy."
The academic aspect of being a student-athlete isn't
going to be a big problem, said freshman Kristin
Breuss, a Morehead Scholar from Nashville, Tenn.
"I expect to come out of here with a good education,
and to grow a lot, so I can make a contribution
to my society," she said.

The death knell for the USFL?
Here's why it's good riddance
In a recent court decision, the
winning party received a death
penalty. Yes, the winning party will
That party is the United States
Football League, and although
technically it won its antitrust suit
against the National Football
League, or at least a part of it, it
was awarded just $1, which was
trebled by antitrust laws to $3.
Therefore, it finds itself consider
ably short of the reported $300 mil
lion needed to continue its farcical
league. Maybe it can spend its win
nings on some aspirin, with which
to soothe the pain of wasted
Actually, the NFL was absolved
of eight of the nine charges brought
against it. The jury decided that
although the NFL does possess a
monopoly, the. USFL created its
own problems and must face the
responsibility for doing so: Amen.
In an age when so many court
decisions make as much sense as
paying Steve Young $40 million for
throwing short passes, this one is
best described as amazing: common
sense prevailed. As NFL attorney
Frank Rothman said, "Justice is
The USFL began as a spring
league, and in the beginning it
stated that it was not attempting to
compete with the NFL, nor was it
seeking a merger. Hmmmm, you
want to be sure you never buy land
in Florida from these guys, or sea
The plain truth is that not only
did it hope to compete, it hoped to
create a merger, which would hand
somely multiply its initial
The USFL's case rested on the
premise that the television networks
and the NFL collaborated to pre
vent the new league from getting a
television contract when it moved
to the fall.
Well, who said there is an inher
ent right to a television contract
just because you wear shoulder
pads and play with an odd shaped
Attempting to compete head-to-head
with the NFL would have
been to commit ratings suicide. The
American public would have tuned
in to its beloved standby and
avoided the expensive imitation.
If the USFL is to punish the real
culprit for its failing, then the foot
ball fans of America must be
brought to trial for having the
audacity to exercise good taste. It is
the viewing public which has
spurned this fumbled attempt at
Possibly, the new league could
disguise itself as Chrysler and have
Lee Iacocca solicit Congress for
In the meantime, the NFL will
prosper from a lack of year-round
football saturation and the influx of
There are those skeptics who
believe NFL owners with poor
teams will now have no incentive to
spend the necessary money to
improve. This belief exists because
television revenue is distributed
equally among all of the teams,
regardless of won-lost records.
However, it is important to
remember that few owners of pro
fessional teams rely on those teams
for their income. Most are exceed
ingly wealthy and own a team for
egotistical reasons. And a massive
ego, of course, is the greatest of all
incentives for fielding a winner. If
this were not the case, 20-year-old
men would not be paid millions to
So, as the USFL crawls toward
eternal peace, over a path littered
with large contracts and bank
ruptcy proceedings, let us bid it a
not-so-fond farewell: Amen.
