Win in Durham
ends year at 8-4
BY DAVID ELY
DURHAM lt wasn’t pretty,
and it certainly wasn’t easy. But it
was a win —one North Carolina
A third consecutive loss would
have cemented the Tar Heels’ end
of-season collapse and ruined any
possibility of UNC appearing in
a top-tier bowl game come late
Saturday at Duke, the Tar Heels
made sure none of those things
became reality and resembled the
squad that won seven games en
route to a 28-20 win against the
rival Blue Devils at Wallace Wade
“Very big,” running back Shaun
Draughn said of the win. “We
weren’t playing for just a bowl
we were playing for integrity. We
were playing for ourselves.”
Draughn, in particularydirectly
contributed to North Carolina’s
resurgence on offense. On the Tar
Heels’ first drive, the sophomore
ripped off carries of 7,3, 6,7 and
30 yards before capping it all off
with a 4-yard burst for a touch
With Draughn off to a hot start,
there was less pressure on quarter
back T.J. Yates to lead the attack.
In turn, Yates played loose and
looked drastically more comfort
able on the field than he did last
week against N.C. State.
In completing 15 of 19 passes
for 190 yards and three scores,
Yates showed that Davis made the
correct choice in returning to the
sophomore as his starter.
It became clearest that Yates
was back to form when he perfect
ly lofted a ball just above Hakeem
Nicks’ right shoulder for a touch
down in the second quarter.
The only thing better than
the throw was the catch. Nicks
trapped the ball against his hel-

to dean rising
BY ASHLEY BENNETT
In the past five fall semesters,
the alcohol-related reports to the
Office of the Dean of Students have
increased by about 153 percent
But the increase isn’t being
reflected in other University
departments that monitor alco
hol violations, and officials try
ing to address the problem are
still unsure of the cause.
The University only uses the fall
semester reports for comparison,
but Dean Blackburn, assistant dean
in the dean of students office, said
the spring semester reports have
probably seen the same increase.
The violations primarily con
cern underage drinking or posses
sion, but reports also reflect open
container violations, fake ID usage
and driving while impaired.
A majority of reports are
from off-campus incidents, near
the Franklin Street bar area,
“Nationally we’ve seen alcohol
use is rising across the country, and
for Carolina, we’re no different,”

Yates, UNC offense re-find their stride against Duke
BY JOE MCLEAN
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
DURHAM Coach Butch Davis talked
all week about “recapturing the identity”
of his North Carolina offense. Davis hadn’t
seen much of one the past two weeks.
But against Duke on Saturday, the Tar
Heels’ offense was sticking. UNC looked
more like the team that piled up more than
34 points on four different opponents this
season, not the one that reached the end
zone only twice in the last two weeks.
And while the win came against the
ACC’s third-worst defense and a Duke team
that finished well short of a bowl bid, all the
pieces looked in place Saturday.

10 yards in the air during the first half.
But with Shaun Draughn running effec
tively on most first and second downs, Yates
didn’t need to look deep.
He stuck to short, safe passes underneath
the defense and avoided the temptation to
throw deep to his wideouts, who spent much
of the day in double coverage.
Take the Tar Heels’ 80-yard scoring drive in
the second quarter. The drive lasted 15 plays,
but UNC never stalled as Yates converted a
3rd-and-7 and a 3rd-and-6 with passes just
long enough to cross the first down marker.
