Quarterback Johnny Swofford Is Nailed
by Mark thicker
Most of South Carolina's Gamecocks
have to look down to find Dick Harris and
Harris weighs 1 64 pounds, Mitchell
157. They seem out of place among the
rest of their gargantuan teammates, who
have been described as bigger than
Nebraska's Cornhuskers, the epitome of
girth in college football.
Yet without the work of the little men,
South Carolina would merely be playing
out the string. Their efforst propelled the
Gamecocks to a 35-21 victory over the
Tar Heels Saturday afternoon and back to
the favorite's role in the ACC race.
Harris' electrifying 97-yard punt return
in the second quarter gave USC a 14-7
lead, and Mitchell, after the Tar Heels had
fought back for a 21-21 tie in the fourth
period, snared a 50-yard Jackie Young
pass to set up the deciding score.
For a moment it looked as though
Harris would regret fielding Don
Is The Worst Behind Heels Now?
by Chris Cobbs ,
In a way, Bill Dooiey had anticipated
"We knew about their speed, we knew
how dangerous South Carolina was," the
Tar Heel coach said after UNC's 35-21 loss
Carolina planned accordingly, he said,
intending to blitz a lot and wanting to vary
its defense as much as possible. The Tar
Heels did just that, but with little effect.
"We were not surprised that they came
out throwing like they did," Dooiey said.
"We double covered some, tried rushing
and then laying back, but they were really

But there was a lot more thaf fhe Tar
Heels could not contain.
Dick Harris, kick returner supreme, for
one. Dooiey had warned his specialty
teams Harris was "the most dangerous we
have come up against in two years." He had
a 97-yard punt runbackTfor atouchdown
and a 55-yard kickoff return.
Also, there was Billy Ray Rice, who was
replacing Ail-American tailback Warren
Muir. Rice's 65-yard burst in the fourth
quarter sealed the Gamecock victory.
Interestingly, the Tar Heels were
worried about South Carolina's passing
when Rick bolted off left tackle on the
trap play. UNC was blitzing-rushing
Suggs all out and the defensive backs were
surprised and unable to cope with Rice
when he slipped through the line,
according to end Judge Mattocks.
"They had the best pass protection we
have faced since we played them last year,"
Mattocks said. "Dave DeCamilla contained
me real well."
"I think we are mature enough to come
back and play the way we are capable of
playing the rest of the season," said the
Judge, an All-ACC selection last season as a
"South Carolina may be good enough
to go on and repeat as champions,"
however, he added.
"We are very, very disappointed to lose
after we came back and tied it in the fourth
quarter," Dooiey commented.
"You can't say if was offensive
inadequacies that beat us, although we
were not at all happy with our passing
attack. Not having Paul Miller had to hurt
us, but I don't think that was the
"We gave too much and now we are just
going to have to forget about this one and
try to get ready for Tulane."
The Tar Heels meet the Green Wave in
New Orleans next weekend. It is still not
known if quarterback Miller, whose
maneuverability remains impaired by an
ankle injury, will be ready.
Unless he is, and unless the Tar Heels
can find ways to shut off the big plays
which felled them Saturday, the worst may

'y,r Carolina's harriers took a beating from
two of the country's best cross-country
teams Saturday morning. Maryland
defeated UNC 15-48, and William & Mary
trounced the Heels 16-47 in the tri-meet
held at Finley Golf Course.
The Terps squeaked out a 28-29 win
over William A Mary in the meantime.
Carolina's best performance, a 26:04
time by Larry Widgeon, was good only for
Other UNC finishers were Pat Grady,
1 9th at 26 : 5 1 ; Mike Garcia, 2 1 st at 27 : 1 2 ;
and Bruce Hafemister, 22nd at 27: 1 8.
Mike Caldwell, Bill Harward, Steve
Grahtwohl and Ray Helm came in 23rd,
24th, 26th and 27th respectively.
-'RussTaintor' cruised to' the victory' Tor ;
Maryland with a clocking of 24:54.8.
Charles Shrader, last year's conference
champ, Jim Rosen, Al Carey and Marty
Brotemarkle also placed for the Terps.
Randy Fields finished second with a
time of 25:27 for the Indians. In fourth,
fifth and sixth were Ron Martin, Howell
Michael, the national AAU mile champ,
and Bill Louv.
The kick sailed 51 yards and Harris
received it on the Gamecock three-yard
line with four Tar Heels quickly
"IH run with anything I can catch,"
said Harris, a junior from Point Reasant
Beach, N J.
"We had the return called to the right
side of the field, and I faked that way."
"But I got past the first wave, and with
the help of some good blocking. I managed
to get past some others," continued Harris.
The only man left was McCauley, and a
South Carolina blocker took care of him.
Harris experience as the conference's
440-yard champ came in handy as he
completed the jaunt.
Harris' other encounters with McCauley
weren't as pleasant, howev er.
"He's tough," asserted Harris. "He's got
plenty of second effort in him.
For Mitchell, now living in Greensboro,
it was a salubrious homecoming. He caught
three passes for 107 yards.
Mitchell had suffered a shoulder injury
in the Wake Forest game and had to sit out
the 77 tie with State, a g3me for which
the Gamecocks were far from mentally
"Since we beat Wake Forest so badly,"
said Mitchell, "we figured State and Wake
were two comparable teams. We didn't
play as well."
The State game will be remembered
fondly in Columbia, however, as the
afternoon that Jackie Young showed his
colors. He came in for the injured Tommy
Suggs and directed the Cocks to a late
'Tommy was still hobbling a bit today
and was a little off in his passing," cited
Mitchell, "but Jackie stepped in and threw
a perfect pass to me.
"That's one of the'hardest things to do,
you know, coming right off the bench like
that. We have confidence in him."
Coach Paul Dietzel sent in the play for
Young, and it couldn't have been executed
more brilliantly. Mitchell described some
of the trickery involved.
"I had been running a post pattern most
of the day on Greg Ward, and we noticed
that he started coming in real hard on me
to break it up.
"On this particular play, Lou Angelo
switched with Ward to defend on me. So I
tried to fake around him, and came up to
bump me which is a real good play for a
. pass defender, i ; -J. i 1 r i
"I got around him a little, but I didn't
have him beat by much. Jackie threw me a
perfect pass," Mitchell concluded.
"It always turns out that receivers and
quarterbacks get interviewed after the
games, but don't forget about our
offensive line," Mitchell admonished.'
"They protected Jackie and Tommy well
"The players didn't razz me too much
out on the field," said Mitchell, "except

once after a pass play Ar.e!o came over
and threw me around a Utile Hi?"'
"I'm so l-tt'e that he couJd hare
probably thrown me around as much as he
wanted to. Mitchell chuckled.
"It's a lot easier running against
second-string defenders," Mitchell added.
He had played with Rusty Culbreth at
Grimsley Hih in Greensboro, and
operated against replacement Greg Ward
much of the afie.pon.
Defensive tack Jim Poston, at 260
pounds the biggest the Gamecocks, had
mixed feelings atsjut his individual
"I feel like we did a good job," he said,
"but when you give up as many yards as we
did you always think you could have
But not many people were talking to
Poston, although he and the rest of the big
linemen had obviously played well.
The attention was going to the little
guys, Harris and Mitchell, the fleas who led
South Carolina's elephants to victory.
They stand out in a crowd.
