Dooley concerned about Northwestern's defense
By GENE UPCHURCH
When Carolina's football team runs into
Northwestern's Dyche Stadium in Evanston, 111. this
Saturday, it will not be met by the cheers of nearly
100,000 screaming Big Ten football fans.
Northwestern officials say that Dyche. with a
capacity of 48,500. will be holding a home opener.
Band Day crowd of 25,000.
The W ildcats have not gotten off to a great start this
year, one of the reasons the tickets for the game have
not been going as if Michigan and Ohio State were
playing. In addition, they are coming off a dismal I -10
season. Northwestern, the Virginia of the Big Ten, has
not scored a touchdown this season, losing its opener
to Iowa, 24-0, and to Arizona St., 35-3.
All of this has UNC Coach Bill Dooley concerned.
He knows Northwestern made mistakes in the first
two games and that all of a sudden, the mistakes could
"They've haven't looked that bad," Dooley said
Tuesday. "They've hurt themselves. We can't go into
this game saying they've made mistakes that allowed
the other teams to win. We can't depend on
Northwestern doing that. We've played teams before
who have had turnovers in games before ours, then
they didn't do it against us."
Noseguard Simmons honored
GREENSBORO (UPI) - North Carolina nose guard Dave
Simmons and Clcmson linebacker Randy Scott have been named
the Atlantic Coast Conference defensive players of the week.
Simmons, a 6-foot-4. 206-pound junior from Rosewood, got the
lineman award for making 1 1 tackles Saturday as the Tar Heels
shut out Richmond. 31-0.

Dooley says his biggest concern is the Wildcat
defense. That might sound strange for a team that has
given up 59 points already this season, but Dooley said
it wasn't the fault of the defense.
"Arizona St. got its points on a punt return and an
interception," he said. "In the second half,
Northwestern shut them down. Iowa got their points
on an interception, a Northwestern fumble and
turnovers. The defense has not given up that many
The Northwestern defense is experienced, with
every player but one a junior or a senior.
"They're a better defense than what the score
indicates," Dooley said. "The score doesn't tell the
A sputtering offense is the reason the Wildcats hae
yet to score a touchdown this season. They lack u
good, dependable quarterback to direct the team.
Junior Scott Stranski probably will start against
Carolina, but a freshman. Bill Dierberger. is listed
behind him. Steve Breitbell. who started in the
Wildcats' 12-0 loss to the I ar Heels last year, is listed
at the third quarterback spot now.
Split end Mark Bailey- is a threat, but the
Northwestern quarterbacks have been throwing more
balls toward the opponents' defenders than toward
him. He is a deep threat and has good hands, Dooley
said. Another offensive threat for the Wildcats is tight
end Dan Cleary, a senior who missed part of last
season because of an ankle injury.
"I'm concerned going up there," Dooley said. "They
have a lot of experience on their team. You look at our
team and sec a lot of sophomores and a few freshmen.
We're playing at Northwestern in their home opener
and they're hungry for a victory. II we don't go up
there ready, we could be in lor a long alternoon."
Carolina will be playing on an artificial surlace
when it travels to Northwestern. It will he the first time
a Carolina team has played on an artificial surface
since the 1975 game against I ulane in the Superdome
in New Orleans.
l!NC Athletic Director Bill Cobey announced
I uesday that the I'NC-Wake Korcst game Oct. X is
now a sellout. He added that ticketsare sellingquieklv
lor the other Carolina home games, including Texas
lech, South Carolina and Clcmson.
Billy Johnson, whocrashed to 67 yards on 19 carries
against Richmond, gets his jersey torn off often, as
defenders try anything to bring the big player down.
He changed jerseys three times in one drive Saturday.
Athletic officials apparently anticipate more of the

Brouse: mens golf best ever at UNC
The topic of sports officials does not breed
apathy. Everyone has his own opinions
views that are often clouded by the person's
lack of knowledge concerning the rules of the
At UNC students are interested not only in
the officials at Carolina's intercollegiate
contests, but also in the intramural officials.
The officials, like the participants of
intramurals, are students. The only benefit
the officials receive is a paycheck ($2.30 per
hour) every two weeks. The abuse they have
to put up with is, at times, unbelievable.
Sometimes the abuse is warranted. There
is no excuse for an official not knowing the
rules, but abuse of officials on judgment calls
Keith Head is the supervisor of officials
for intramurals. Even though it is still early
in the year, there have been very few
problems, Head said.
"Early in the season," Head said, "we try
and work two new officials with an
experienced one. This year we have a total of
40 officials, of which approximately 25 are
new to officiating."
At the beginning of each sport's season,
officials go over the rules in a meeting, which
lasts an hour and one-half. The officials are
told to go home and study the rules, but no
test is given.
"We gave a test on basketball rules last
year and we might do it again this year, but
no one is required to pass it," Head said.
Instead, officials are evaluated by a field
supervisor on their on-the-field abilities.
Already this year, nearly every official has
"1 see the evaluations," Head said, "and
then give them to each official. Really the
evaluation shows the official what to work
on and what he is doing really well.
"We'll probably do another evaluation in
a couple of weeks to see how everyone is
One of the problems Head encounters is
lack of communication. "Managers go to
meetings, see the rules and then go back to
their dorm or frat and don't tell their team.
Or if they tell anyone it's usually their blue
(competitive) team and they leave the white
(noncompetitive) team out in the cold."
Sport is not a life and death .situation,
Head said. "I'm a player and I still get mad at
the referees but then I think what it was like
to be a referee, or what it'd be like without
In officiating, some calls, obviously, are
easier to judge than others. Some calls are
made literally without thinking, as if a
reaction, but others are not. These are the
judgment calls and are both the hardest to
judge and the most controversial.
"I would have to say that judgment calls

are the most difficult. Everyone sees
different things and interprets things they see
differently. But once the whistle blows, the
play's dead. Right or wrong, the official has
to make the call and has to maintain control
of the game, especially in basketball."
Officials are taught to blow their whistles
quickly and loudly.
"So far this semester we have had very few
complaints lodged. If someone wants to
complain they should see me for results,"
"I don't know what I'll do, it depends on
"This year we have added walkie-talkies,
which should help our general organization.
We can now be informed almost instantly
about forfeits and injuries.
"There will be a walkie-talkie on both
Carmichael and Ehringhaus fields and the
base station will be the intramural office.
"Officiating is hard," Head said.
"Everyone, referees and players, gets hot and
sweaty under competition."

The UNC men's golf team enjoyed a
tremendously successful season last spring. "
and the Tar Heel golfing brigade is looking
for more of the same this time around.
Last spring, the Heels proved themselves
to be one of the best teams in the country by
winning the Pinehurst Intercollegiate
Championship, the Big Four Tournament,
and the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)
championship, and finishing 12th in the
NCAA tournament. Indeed it was a great
year, yet Devon Brouse, the acting coach in
the absence of Coach Mike McLeod thinks
this year's squad can be even better.
"This is probably the best team ever at the
University in the modern era," said Brouse.
"We placed 12th in the nation last year, have
our top players back, and they all have
improved and gotten more experience. A lot
of teams w ill be better, but I think we w ill be
one of the top teams in the Southeast. I am
looking forward to the year and to achieving
bigger and better things on top of last year's
Bill Sibbick. Bill Buttner. Kevin King and
John McGough are the top returnees from
last year. Buttner, King, and McGough were
All-ACC selections a year ago. Sibbick and
McGough had outstanding summers, with
Sibbick qualifying for the U.S. Amateur and
McGough winning the Mississippi State
Open and finishing second in the Southeast

close in caliber and experience, and Brouse

Fuhrer w ill be battling for the final tw o spots
on the six-man A team. John Elam is playing
football this fall, but Brouse is looking for
Elam to have a good season in the spring.
The 19-member team has been busy
qualifying the past two weeks in preparation
for the fall competition.
The team opens its fall season this
weekend with the Foxfire Intercollegiate B
Tournament at Pinehurst. Golf is becoming
more of a split-season sport, with the fall
season providing an opportunity for coaches
to see what players can do. although the
tournaments are not quite as important as
the spring matches.
"The fall offers a chance to look at
people." Brouse said. "We have three good B
team tournaments. We will be losing some
very good players alter this year so our
future is now, but we also must look to next
year and the fall season allows us to do just
that. Our first major tournament will be Oct.
7 in the Memphis Fall Classic.
When most of the top performers return
from a team that placed 12th in the nation,
the squad is bound to hut a great deal of
strengths and a minimum of weaknesses.
Brouse said the short game is the Heels
possible shallow spot, but concedes that
over-all the team is very strong.
