Carolina football opens at home
UNO defensive tackle Dee Hardison (71 ), who chased Kentucky quarterback Derrick
Ramsey (12) on this play last Saturday, said the Tar Heels defense did a good job
against the Wildcat running game except for three plays. He feels the Heels must
stop both Richmond's passing and running games this Saturday. Staff photo by L. C.
Defensive unit to lead
charge against Spiders
By GENE UPCHURCH

The big tackle hits one offensive lineman with a crisp crack of helmets and
shoulder pads. He bounces off, pushes past another lineman and grabs a
runningback carrying a ball, throwing him to the ground with a grunt.
The ball carrier has a pained look on his face as the tackle stands up. He lays still
for a moment as the tackle stands over him, glowering. I t makes the ball carrier
think the next time he takes the handoff and starts running.
Dee Hardison is a defensive tackle for Carolina. He knows the feeling of crashing
into linemen and trying desparately to grab a runner or quarterback before they can
gain any ground. When he sends them crashing to the ground, it gives them
something to think about as they walk back to the huddle.
"I like to hit," he says. When he hits someone, they know it, particularly when he
throws all of his 6-3'A, 252-pound frame into the hit.
Hardison played tailback in high school, but decided when he got to college that
he liked to hit rather than being hit, so he changed to defense.
And, he has become one of the top defensive players in the conference and in the
nation. Nearly every pro football scout who has watched a Carolina football game
in the past couple of years has Hardison's name underlined on their flip cards.
Hardison is the kind of player who can keep the defense charged up. After a big
tackle, whether he is in on it or not, he is clapping and encouraging his defensive
"We all basically do it," he says about cheerleading. "Especially when the other
team is driving and you're getting your backs to the wall, you try to keep your head
up and stop the drive." .
One of the reasons Carolina's defense is expected to do well this season, Hardison
says, is that the team has played together so long. Hardison was not disappointed
with the defensive performance in the 10-7 loss to Kentucky, where it allowed 12
first downs, and 203 total yards.
"I felt pretty good about it," he says. "We stopped their running game. They got
three long gains, but overall I think we did pretty good. As for myself, 1 need to get
off the ball quicker. We all can improve."
Carolina will have a chance this weekend to work on these problems when it plays
host to the Richmond Spiders, who are coming after a 36-0 loss to West Virginia.
