Ah. the plight of the quarterback.
For weeks, he consistently moves his football team, .
directing them in long marches down an endless
football Held. He is given the credit when the pass is
completed or the opposing defense is busted; he must
take the blame when the pass is intercepted or the
running back is. hit behind the line.
The quarterback, if he's a go6d one, can make a
winner out of a losing football team. The victories can
become more of an individual effort than a group
And then it happens. On just another inalong series
of plays, there is that tackle that will flash vividly in the
quarterback's mind forever. And, as he is helped off the
field, the hopes of the quarterback and often the team
go to the sidelines.
When I9th-ranked Texas Tech raids Kenan
Stadium on Saturday, its first-string quarterback will
be hobbling about in a cast. Rodney Allison, the senior
quarterback who has directed the Red Raider offense
for so long that even Tech Coach Steve Sloan cannot
remember starting a game without him, suffered a
broken leg last week in a 33-17 loss to Texas A&M. In
the first quarter with Tech leading 17-14, Allison was
tackled and suffered a broken bone in his lower left leg.
That leaves Tres Adami, who has never started, to
start for the Red Raiders.
"I don't know what kind of factor it will be," Sloan
said this week about Adami starting. "We haven't
played in a long time without Allison.
"I hope it will make the team more determined to
take up the slack."
After the loss to A&M, they dropped from 6th in the
coaches' college football poll to 19th this week. In
addition, losing to A&M is something fans in Chapel
Hill can relate to.
"It's like ya'U losing to N.C. State," Sloan said. "We
were bitterly disappointed. With that kind of a rivalry,
it's tough to lose."
Sloan said it is hard to say if Allison's absence during
the critical part of the game was a factor in the
"Since he wasn't in there, you can't really say," he
Sloan said he does not anticipate changing the Tech
offense because Allison is out for four-to-six weeks.

While the quarterback situation for both Carolina and
Texas Tech is in question for their battle Saturday,
there is no question about the Tar Heel tailback spot.
Tech runs a split-back veer (similar to State) and Sloan
hinted that the Raiders might do more passing than if
Allison were in the game.
"Tres is not a runner like Rodney," he said. "Rodney
has run 70 yards for touchdowns. Tres is not a running
"There's the possibility that we'll make some
mistakes. The timing will be different as well as his
inexperience and lack of playing time to execute the
Offensive players for Tech who will be running even
harder Saturday to fill Allison's empty shoes are Billy
Taylor, who picked up more than 600 yards last season
as a junior, and Mark Julian, aquick runner in his first
year as a starter. Fullback Jimmy Williams also is
expected to take some pressure off Adami with his
running and catching ability.
"We have not faced a team with the offense of this
caliber this year," UNC coach Bill Dooley said this
week. "We have not faced this speed since the Florida
game last year" which Carolina won 24-21.

In addition, Texas Tech's defense will give Carolina
problems because it is quick and constantly changing.
The multiple-style defense Tech runs will look different
to Carolina's offense on every play. When Carolina
faced another tough defense, Kentucky, it was given
several delay-of-game penalties when quarterback
Matt Kupec had a difficulty reading the changing
Carolina's quarterback situation for the Texas Tech
game is not much more clear than the Red Raiders.
Kupec is listed as questionable for the game because of
a sprained knee and ankle suffered in the Northwestern
game last week.
Backing Kupec at quarterback will be either PJ.
Gay or Clyde Christensen.
"Both are our second-string quarterbacks," Dooley
Both have comparable passing statistics after three
games but Christensen leads Gay in rushing stats.
