The day of reckoning is nigh for the Carolina
Saturday, it faces the unenviable task of taking its
sputtering offense and strong defense to Raleigh and
Carter Stadium to tangle with N.C. State's high
powered running backs the kind that run over you
and don't even say "excuse me."
The cliches come rolling out whenever someone
talks about the Carolina-State rivalry. Such good old
phrases as "this is what college football is all about,"
"you can throw the record books out the window" and
"there'll be a lot of fireworks" punctuate conversations
about the age-old rivalry to the great dismay of
listeners who have heard them countless times before.
The cliches, however, could give way to more
specific terms after the game, a do-or-die affair for
Carolina. The Tar Heels have breezed to three
victories in five games this season, but have been
unable to win their two games against top-20
opponents Kentucky and Texas Tech.
And now it faces State, which slipped into the top 20
(at the 20th spot) this week in the college coaches
football poll. Even UNC coach Bill Dooley admitted
Tuesday he voted for the Wolfpack to be in the top 20.
"I think they deserve to be in the top 20," he said.
The Wolfpack now is 5-1 after an opening-game loss to
East Carolina and victories that include wins over
defending Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC)
champion Maryland and Auburn of the Southeastern
"Their offense presents our defense with the biggest
challenge this year," Dooley said. "They have a big-
That "big-play" backfield is anchored by running
back Ted Brown, who is averaging just undersix yards
per carry and 95.7 yards rushing per game. Rickey
Adams adds depth to the running back spot while Billy
Ray Vickers is performing well at fullback.
And then there's Johnny Evans. The versatile
quarterback is a good runner and passer and one of the
top punters in the nation. He adds a dimension to the
State attack that will put additional pressure on
Carolina's defense. In six games this season, he has
rushed for 173 yards and passed for 767.
"As far as us having any hope of winning this game,
we must stop the big play," Dooley said.
But it's Carolina's offense and kicking game, not the
defense, that has Dooley worried. The offense has
been plagued with inconsistency during the early part
of the season, making some big plays but faltering
sometimes in crucial situations. For example, early in
Carolina's 24-3 win over Wake Forest, the offense
moved the ball down to the Wake 1 1-yard line when
tailback Phil Farris fumbled the ball, and Wake
"If we expect to win this football game at all,"
Dooley said, "we must execute more consistently."
Carolina had two fumbles recovered by Wake and
two intercepted passes against the Deacons.
The Carolina kicking game particularly the
performance of punter Johnny Evans also worries
Dooley. The performance this season has not been the
same performance of a kicking unit that lifted Carolina
out of several tight spots last season.
Facing a punter like State's Evans, Dooley said the
kicking game could be a critical factor in determining
the outcome of the game. Carolina has a minus-two
yards average in punt-return yardage on eight attempts
Alan Caldwell, Carolina's bruising strong safety and
the ACC defensive back of the week, ran back an
intercepted pass 72 yards for a touchdown against
Wake. Dooley praised the senior's performance, as
well as the performances of tackle Dee Hardison and
defensive back Ricky Barden against the Deacons,
particularly for blocks that opened the way for
Dooley said John Rushing, the senior offensive
tackle who was injured against Wake, and one of the
few experienced players on the young line, will miss the
State game and is questionable for the South Carolina
game next week.
He suffered a strained knee. Freshman John Lucas
will fill in for Rushing. Mike Salzano has been moved
from his normal right guard position to left guard and
Lucas will play right guard, Dooley said, because the
freshman has more experience at that spot.
