Perhaps scholars shouldn't be so quick to
attack the mentality of football players.
Playing the game takes more than brawn.
Some brains are required.
Offensive linemen, in particular, often
have it rough. There's a lot more to blocking
than simply memorizing the number of the
brute on the other side of the line and
charging after him like a madman all
For every offensive play, there are
countless ways to block it, depending on the
defensive alignment. And the linemen have
only a couple of seconds to figure out what
the defense is and how to block.
That's one reason the normally high
powered, explosive Texas Tech offense had
so much trouble against Carolina's defense
Saturday afternoon in Kenan Stadium. The
Red Raiders were confounded by the Tar
Heels' varied formations and were able to
construct only one sustained drive.
"It got confusing for us out there at times,"
Texas Tech Head Coach Steve Sloan said.
"North Carolina does so many different
things defensively that we were having some
trouble picking up our assignments. They
use so many fronts and coverages, and they
used one front we didn't expect them to run."
Senior fullback Billy Taylor, who is ninth
on Tech's all-time rushing list and who was
the game's leading rusher with 150 yards,
also noticed the complexity of the Carolina
"Ten points is the lowest we've scored in a
long time," he said. "You've got to give
North Carolina's defense credit. They gave
us a whole different look in the entire game.
It was a little confusing, especially in the first
half. They've got a good defense."
The Raider plight wasn't helped any by the
inexperience of its two quarterbacks Tres
Adami and Mark Johnson. Adami started
for the injured Rodney Allison and was
replaced by Johnson late in the first half.
"I just wasn't moving the team all that
well," Adami said. "I guess they just wanted
to try and get something started with Mark.
He's a little quicker than I am and can get
Carolina did a good job of stopping the
Tech option most of the afternoon. Much of
the Raiders' 235 yards rushing came when
Taylor carried between the tackles. The one
possession whenTech was able to control the
flats between the hash mark and sideline,
however, the Raiders marched 80 yards in 13
plays to tie the score at 7-7 early in the second
"I was having a little trouble reading what
theywere doing," said Johnson, who
directed the scoring series. "We were
optioning the end and then the cornerback
on most of that drive. Once I got settled, I
started running more."
Johnson kept the ball six times on the
drive, gaining 45 yards. The last carry was
three yards to the right side for the tying
touchdown. "That play was an option run
pass," he said. "AH my receivers were
covered in the end zone, so I just took it in
The winning score came in late in the
fourth quarter on a 35-yard Bill Adams' field
goal after Taylor carried eight of nine plays,
moving the -Raiders from their own 48 to the

"1 don't know why they had me running it
so much," a worn out Taylor said. "I guess
with Allison out I've been expected to take
up more of the slack."
Adam's game-winning effort was perfect,
even though the walk-on soccer-style kicker
experienced difficulty in opening warm ups
of having to adjust to the thick natural grass
of Kenan Stadium.
"I'm not used to kicking on natural turf,"
he said. "We had a little trouble getting used
to the grass. We had to make several
adjustments before I started kicking like I
wanted to. But we had a good snap and hold
on that field goal. It felt pretty good. I just
stayed down and followed through."
Tech's other kicker, punter Mike Mock,
also had problems with the turf. After
dropping a center snap at his own six
midway through the second quarter, Mock
stumbled and fell when his cleats got caught
in the grass while he reached down to recover
his fumble. The Tar H eels scored a play later.
"My cleats got hung up, and I thought I
was down," he said. "I should have tried to
run it or something, but I thought the ball
was dead. It was a bad play on my part."
His voice is nearly as familiar as the
voices of Carolina's coaches maybe
Wherever Carolina is playing a
basketball or football game, Woody
Durham is there. He talks to the players
and coaches and is in his seventh year
doing the play-by-play for the radio
network for both sports.
For the past 1 3VS years, Durham has
been the sportscaster at a Greensboro
television station, WFMY. Now he's
moving on to something new and, to
him, more challenging. He is now news
and sports director of WRDU, a UHF
station that serves the Raleigh, Durham
and Chapel Hill markets. The station
was bought this summer by Durham
Life Broadcasting, which also owns
WPTF and WQDR radio stations.
"They approached me early this
summer," Durham said Saturday after
the Texas Tech game. He was waiting
for a player to interview for "The Bill
Dooley Show," of which he is the host.
"I'd been thinking about making a
change for a long time. I'd really done all
I could do and accomplished all my
goals. I wanted to make a change before
it showed in my work. I told them
WRDU I would like to have more input
into management and policy decisions."
Durham Life is pumping money into
By GENE UPCHURCH
WRDU to try to make it competitive
with other stations in the area. A new
tower is being built in Apex and a five
million-watt transmitter is being
installed to make the station easier to
receive. A nine-person news staff has
been hired for local news, which will
premier with Durham as the
anchorman Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m.
"When 1 was making this decision, I
asked a lot of people to ask me negative
questions about taking the job. It all
came down to my future. Now, my
future is unlimited. I'm not in a capacity
where I can be stereotyped. As the TV
station grows, I'll grow."
Conflict of interest and failure to
remain objective are problems that
some people will accuse Durham of, just
as they always have, since he is an
independent reporter and ' on the
University payroll for doing the play-by-play.
Durham sees no possible
conflict but says it always is on his mind.
"Fans will say what they want to
about the things 1 say," he says. "I've
never seen any conflict. My foremost
goal is to be objective. I'm fair and put
reasoning behind every decision. People
respect my job."
Durham says objective decisions also
are being made about which games to
broadcast on the station's Monday
night Big Four college football
broadcast, which airs from 6 p.m. to 7
p.m. The station shows the game which
has the most interest among the public,
Durham says. The game tonight is the
"As long as 1 don't have any problems
staying objective, I'll stay on. I'll stay
concerned about being objective while
doing the best job 1 can in both. The fans
are going to be fair."
