6The Daily Tar Heel Wednesday, October 7, 1987
Rappin' a while with author LT
Exuding his trademark confidence
and exhibiting his natural gift of
quotability; New York Giants star
linebacker Lawrence Taylor rolled
into town Monday to promote his
book LT: Living on the Edge.
Since the NFL players' strike began
two weeks ago, Taylor has been
taking it easy, visiting Atlantic City
for a few days and spending a week
at his home in Houston. Golf, and
not "gassers," has occupied his time.
Taylor stopped by Chapel Hill on
his way to Washington for an appear
ance Tuesday night on the Larry King
Show. Monday morning he shot a
75 at Finley Golf Course in his
"I didn't have my clubs or my shoes
with me," he said. I bought a new
set of clubs in the pro shop, but they
didrrt have any shoes to fit me, so
I played without them."
Monday night, adoring fans and
old friends streamed into the Intimate
Book Shop at University Mall to
share a word or two with the man
many consider the greatest defensive
player in NFL history. Six straight
years as an All-Pro. Four times
named the league's Defensive Player
of the Year. A living nightmare for
opposing quarterbacks everywhere.
And it all began right here at UNC,
where Taylor earned consensus All
America honors in 1980, his senior
year. That season North Carolina
went 11-1, and only a loss to Okla
homa in the eighth week prevented
the Tar Heels from a New Year's Day
bowl and a shot at the national
Decked out in a dark blue wind
breaker and Giants cap, and sporting
a top-of-the-line Rolex watch, his
Super Bowl XXI ring and a gold
medallion with his number "56"
outlined in diamonds, Taylor signed
copies of his book for nearly two
hours, fielding questions from repor
ters and fans as he did so.
"Are you guys gonna play the Bears
in the Super Bowl?" one painfully
uninformed fan asked LT.
MI don't think so," Taylor ans
wered, leaving to someone else the
task of explaining to the chubby man
that the Bears and Giants are in the
"What about the strike," a reporter
queried. uDo you really believe in the
Heels looking to stay intense for Wake
By JAMES SUROWIECKI
The mood was subdued in the
Skipper Bowles Room Tuesday, as
a rather quiet UNC football coach
Dick Crum fielded questions from a
group of reporters who seemed often
disinterested in the proceedings.
The press conference resembled in
tone Crum's brief and curt appear
ance after Saturday's 20-10 loss to
Auburn, a loss which was especially
painful because for much of the game
the Tar Heels had outplayed the then-sixth-ranked
Crum, though, was much more
expansive Tuesday, apparently reco
vered from Saturday's post-game
blues. It was instead the press corps
who wielded the weapon of muteness,
creating long, painful silences as
Crum waited for another question.
The end, when it came, brought with
it an almost palpable sense of relief

uIVe never been a union man. Both
sides are dead wrong," LT said. I
look at what we are asking for, and
I see nothing worth going on strike
for. But then I look at what the
owners are offering, and I see nothing
worth going to work for."
And on it went from 7 p.m. until
almost 9. Thirty-seven people bought
the book, nearly doubling the pre
vious number of sales since its release
in mid-July, according to store
Somebody asked Taylor if he was
going to watch the Giants replace
ment players play against San Fran
cisco's scabs on Monday.
"Only if the TV happens to be on
and I happen to be in the room and
I happen to glance that way," Taylor
said. "I was planning to play some
marbles tonight anyway."
That remark was just one of many
which drew a chuckle from the crowd
of 50 or so which huddled around
the display counter turned pulpit. As
usual, Taylor held the fans' rapt
attention without even trying.
"What do you think about the
scabs?" someone asked.
"I have nothing against them,"
Taylor said of the replacement
players hired by the owners in an
effort to break the NFL's third strike
in the past 13 years. "If some guy
is making $300 a week and he
suddenly has a chance to make $5,000
a week, he should do it. You've got
to go with the economics.
"The guys I have hard feelings
toward are the owners. I think they
are showing what they think of us
by going out and hiring new players
to take our place." s
"Have you thought of crossing the
picket line at all?" another reporter
"Yes, I have. I wanted to go back
a couple different times last week, but
each time something would happen
to keep me from doing it," Taylor
said. "The last time was on Friday.
I was ready to go back to work, but
from the tense atmosphere which
ruled the conference.
It was a half-hour dominated by
a discussion of the past, of the road
which UNC has traveled while com
piling a 3-2 record. On the minds of
everyone was the Auburn game, and
how the Tar Heels would rebound
from such a disappointing loss.
"The game was one that we thought
we could go in and play with them,
and we did," Crum said. "The team
played hard, and their level of
competitiveness was very high, so I
can't fault their effort. We made some
mistakes offensively and one big
mistake on defense, and that cost us."
Crum seemed less concerned about
the impact of the loss than did certain
of the reporters, as he emphasized
that UNC had not made an extraor
dinary investment in the outcome of
last Saturday's game.
"It was not an emotional blowout,"
he said. "It was not an emotional,
last-ditch effort to save the farm. I
think these guys will be back around.
You play hard so that playing with

that morning I saw a picture of some
of the guys in the picket line and I
said, 'No, I can't do it.
"I have no respect, though, for the
guys who never even gave the strike
a chance to work. At least stay out
a week and give it a chance to develop.
As for the guys filing back in now,
I have nothing against them. They've
got a life to live, too. You've got a
family, a wife, a girlfriend some
Not all questions merited such
lengthy answers. The toughest offen
sive lineman? "Jimbo Covert on the
Bears. He's a real nice guy. Like, hell
spit on you and say 'I'm sorry. "
And what about Jets lineman
Mark Gastineau? "He's arrogant, he's
self-centered and he's a son of a
bitch." And Mark Bavaro, the Giants
tight end? "He's real quiet, real
strange. If he asks you a question,
you feel real honored that he actually
talked to you. I don't think he said
20 words to me all last year."
How about Walter Payton, the
NFL's all-time leading rusher? "He's
all right. But Kevin Mack and
Herschel Walker are tougher to bring
Later, the conversation turned to
matters closer to home. Topics like
fraternity parties and Dick Crum
came up, and Taylor was more than
happy to give his opinion on them.
"You still have fraternities on this
campus?" Taylor joked. "We used to
tear them up. What's that one over
near Granville? The Pikas? Yeah,
those are wild guys. I loved those
It's no secret, however, that Taylor
never held a similar place in his heart
for his college coach.
"It's not that I dislike Crum as a
person," LT explained. "It's just that
we never saw eye to eye as far as
football goes. Another problem is
that I don't think he knows people.
I don't think he can handle people.
"But that's all in the past. I'm not
here to criticize the man. I had a great
four years here. We were lucky
enough to win some ACC champion
ships and go to some bowl games.
Hopefully they (UNC) can do it
again. And maybe Crum's the man
who can do it for them.
"But I don't think so."
intensity becomes a habit, not a
Perhaps the Tar Heel who has been
most successful at remaining consist-'
ently intense this year is nose guard
Carlton Bailey, who had a pheno
menal IS unassisted tackles against
Auburn and was in Tiger quarterback
Jeff Burger's face all day long. Bailey
has keyed the resurgent UNC defense,
and Crum, as has become his custom,
raved about his dominant lineman.
"He's having an exceptional year,"
Crum said. "He's doing everything we
thought he could do and hoped he
could do. He's matured a lot,
leadership-wise, and he's been a real
key to the success of our defense. He
has had as outstanding a season as
any player we've had here."
Talk did eventually turn to the Tar
Heels' upcoming game with the 4-0
Deacons of Wake Forest, who are
led by former UNC head coach Bill
Dooley. Crum dismissed any notion
of a rivalry between him and Dooley
as a product of media hype, but
adopted his usual attitude of warning
when speaking of the Deacons.
"Wake comes in with an unde
feated football team and a defense
that has only given up one touch
down," he said. "It's going to be a
real tough, physical football game
and one that we're going to have to
Of the miserly Deacon defense,
Crum said, "They're extremely well
coached, they're aggresive and they
He also had praise for his own
defensive squad, though, which has
played in stark contrast to the defense
which last year gave up 30 points in
seven of its last eight games. Crum's
one bone of contention was Satur
day's 33-yard Burger-to-Freddy Wey
gand touchdown pass, a pass which
resulted from a blown coverage.
"Other than that one play, I
thought our defense played really
well," Crum said. "They're coming
along, and they've made progress.
They aren't the kind of guys who are
going to sit there and rest on their
Given Crum's vision of the games
before the ACC schedule as making
up a "preseason," resting on their
laurels should be the last thing the
Tar Heels are thinking about.

Strike talks resume; settlement near
From Associated Press reports
NEW YORK NFL strike nego

union softened its stance on free
agency, leading some players to
predict regulars would be back on the
field this weekend.
The talks, the first in 11 days,
involved only the chief negotiators
management's Jack Donlan and the
union's Gene Upshaw. The site was
The two sides returned to the
bargaining table following an eight
hour meeting in Chicago of the
union's 28 player representatives.
The new talks also followed a
weekend in which both sides seemed
to lose owners, because stadiums
were filled to just 25 percent capacity
rather than the usual 90 percent;
players, because of nearly 90 defec
tions and reports that many more,
including entire teams, might cross
picket lines this week.
"I think the pressures are beginning
to build up on both sides," Commis
sioner Pete Rozelle said in Washing
ton where he was testifying before a
Senate Judiciary subcommittee on
the NFL's TV package.
Owners, meanwhile, put more
pressure on players by moving up the
reporting deadline from Friday to
Wednesday. That means a player who
wants to get paid for this weekend's
games must report to his team by
Wednesday, two days earlier than last
