Tar Heels rout RU
for rare away win
BY MIKE EHRLICH
PISCATAWAY, N.J. - For the
first time in a long time, the Tar
Heels delivered on the big stage.
Thursday night. ESPN. The
eyes of the nation looking on to
see if the Tar Heels would live up
to the preseason hype.
And for the first time since
2002, North Carolina won out
side its home state.
UNC dominated field position,
won the turnover battle and got
another big game from emerging
all-purpose star Brandon Thte in
a 44-12 rout to improve to 2-0 for
the first time since 2000.
“It was a big step for this new
team in this new era that we’re
under right now,” sophomore
safety Deunta Williams said.
“With a big win like this, it just
gives us a lot more confidence.
“Coach (Butch) Davis always
talks about playing in the games
with the blimps in the sky, and I
definitely saw one out there today.
And we all performed.”
The Tar Heels were in control
of all phases of the game against a
Rutgers team that looked hapless
in its own stadium.

North Carolina defense takes control

For the second consecutive drive, Rutgers
looked poised to break through against
North Carolina’s defense.
Scarlet Knight quarterback Mike Teel was
making it look easy, completing five of his
first six passes against a Tar Heel secondary
that seemed content to play off the ball and
prevent a big play.
That trend looked to continue after Teel
again found an open receiver this time
Tiquan Underwood over the middle on
second down from the UNC 48.
Then Burney entered the equation.
Symbol of black power shares his story
BY MARYANN BARONE
Former Olympic track star Tommie Smith, made
famous by his raised fist at the 1968 Summer Olympics
in Mexico City, said Thursday that he wasn’t even aware
of racial discrimination until he went to college.
The human rights symbol presented a lesser-known
side of himself speaking Thursday night about his life
prior to his famous display against oppression.
The event, titled “The Time is Nigh: Organize,
Mobilize, Radicalize,” was the kickoff for the Sonja
Haynes Stone Center’s series on the civil rights move
ment of 1968 and 1969. Smith entered to a standing
ovation from the about 150 people who attended.
He said that growing up on a farm in Texas and
then moving to Lemoore, Calif., with his 11 brothers
and sisters shaped him into who he became.
“We did things that made us who we are today”
He said he was unaware of the racial discrimination
that was going on in the world around him because of
his life on the sheltered farm.

Sophomore cornerback Kendric Burney sends Rutgers receiver Tiquan Underwood to the turf during Thursday's
game. UNC's secondary picked off Scarlet Knights fifth-year senior quarterback Mike Teel four times in the win.
Flying in from the right hashmark,
Burney lowered his shoulder and slammed
into the Rutgers wideout, jarring the ball
loose and sending Underwood to the Scarlet
Kinghts’ sideline. The UNC defense had got
ten its mojo back.
“When he threw it, you know, I just kind
of threw all my 185 into him,” Burney said.
“That lifted up our defense as a whole and
lifted our team up.”
The effect of Burney’s hit was evident
from the moment the second play resumed.
Again Teel dropped back to pass and fired,
and again a Rutgers receiver was dropped
by a Tar Heel defensive back this time
safety Deunta Williams.

Smith’s landmark fist salute at the Mexico City games.
His talent for running was unnoticed by his large
family, Smith said, although in high school he was
running faster than some college athletes.
When he graduated, he went to San Jose State
University. There he saw the outside world for the first
time —and decided he would try to combat discrimi
nation by trying to get the “best out of the worst.”
“I felt a necessity to get involved after I found out
things were different,” he said.
It was at the Olympic Games that he was first able
to take a public stand on his new view of the world.
But before his 200-meter dash in Mexico City, he
pulled a leg muscle.
“Here I was, at the pinnacle of my career, saying a
pulled muscle is OK,” Smith said.
He recovered with the help of a bag of ice and light
