Senior tailback Leon Johnson (12) sprints away from a bevy of Clemson defenders during a 67-yard run Saturday. The carry was Johnson's longest ever, and he scored moments later
to give the Tar Heels a 6-0 lead. Johnson rushed for 109 yards and scored two touchdowns as North Carolina beat Clemson for the first time in three years.

Chancellor Michael Hooker’s letter
asking alumni to refrain from drinking
while tailgating at this weekend’s foot
ball game received a mostly positive re
sponse . But the letter did not seem to stop
many alumni from drinking.
“I don’t see anything wrong with drink
ing at the game,” Educational Founda
tion member James Holleman said.
“Drinking a couple of beers is no worse
than drinking a couple of Coca-Colas.
“Tailgating is what makes coming to
football games so much fun. People just
want to eat, drink and be sociable.”
Other alumni rejected Hooker’s re
quest to refrain from drinking, but tried
to maintain a facade of compliance.

by students’ complaints that they were
often cited for alcohol consumption while
alumni were not.
