Student Body President Kevin

parking and know the issue has not
yet been resolved for the future.
"They (students) need to voice their
opinions and concerns," Martin said.
Parking is a tremendous problem
at UNC, and students undoubtedly
will have to suffer as improvements
are made, he said.
But faculty and staff should also
share part of the burden, Martin said.

Tar Heels, 31-10,

By MIKE BERARDINO
COLUMBIA, S.C. It could
have been better; it could have been
worse. But as far as new coach Mack
Brown and his UNC football team
are concerned, the best thing about
Saturday night's much-dreaded sea
son opener against South Carolina
is that it's over.
Before a Williams-Brice Stadium
crowd of 73,275, including Republi
can vice-presidential nominee Dan
Quayle, the Tar Heels stayed with the
19th-ranked Gamecocks for a while.
But in the end, USC's twin advan
tages of speed and experience paved
the way for the home team's 31-10
Todd Ellis, South Carolina's
carved the UNC secondary for 290
yards passing and two touchdowns.
Tailback Harold Green accounted for
the Gamecocks' other two TDs,
juking and jiving his way to a 100
"We're disappointed; we came in
here wanting to win the ballgame,"
Brown said afterwards. "Shoot, we
were onside kicking late, we were
trying to do anything we could
possibly do to get back in the thing,
which probably made the score more
than it would have been if we hadn't
made those decisions."
Indeed, Hamp Greene's 28-yard
field goal with 6:40 left in the game
pulled North Carolina within two
touchdowns, at 24-10, and gave the
Tar Heels at least a slight measure
of hope for a miracle comeback. But
the ensuing onside kick was recovered
by the Gamecocks, who, then
marched the remaining 40 yards to
the end zone in just six plays to put
the game out of UNC's reach and
cover the 14-point spread.
