Tar Heels defense tough test for Gamecocks
Continued from page 1,
Carolina's defense will be able to stay in
Ehringhaus Saturday and watch Wide
World of Sports. Ron Bass, the Gamecock
quarterback, is completing over 53 percent
of his passes this season and has rushed for
214 yards.
"It seems like he's been around forever,"
UNC coach Bill Dooley said earlier this
week. Bass filled in for in injured starter
against Carolina in 1974, rushed for 211
yards and directed the Gamecocks to a 3 1-23
When Bass gets protection from his line,
he likes to throw to split end Philip Logan,
who has pulled down 17 passes for 302 yards
this season.
"He hasn't had a chance," Carlen said of
Logan. "There are two things in a passing
game a thrower and a receiver. And when
you don't have a line to block, those two are
Fullback George Rogers has rushed for
348 yards this season, averaging 4.6 yards
per carry, while tailback Spencer Clark has
rushed for 336 yards 4.4 per carry.
And Carlen is worried about the Tar Heel
defense. He is very much aware of the
mincemeat made of the N.C. offense last
week by Carolina's defensive line in a 27-14
victory over the Wolfpack.
"We haven't played such an outstanding
defense all season," he said. "They're very
large. The size of their people is enough to
intimidate any team."
Carolina snuffed nearly any semblance of
an offensive attack by State, allowing only
two clutch fourth quarter touchdown passes
by quarterback Johnny Evans.
But Carolina's defense is not the only part
of the Tar Heel team Carlen is worried
about. He said he knows how the offense got
on track against State, with quarterback
Matt Kupec back to full strength after
recovering from a leg injury and scrappy
freshman tailback Amos Lawrence spinning,
twisting and plain outrunning defenders for
big gains.
"I wish we could've played them earlier
before they put it all together,""Carlen said.
Lawrence, now starting for Carolina,
picked up 216 yards in 28 carries against
State and earned national weekly honors for
his performance, which included a dazzling
53-yard scamper.
Carolina's offensive line, for the most
part, cannot accurately be called
"inexperienced" anymore. Led by guard
Mike Salzano, the unit has faced tough
Continued from page 1
"While I'm here, 1 want this team to win an
ACC championship. We're ahead right now,
but the toughest games are still to come.
None will be easy. (Maryland, Clemson and
Duke all remain). I'd also like to go to and
win a big bowl game, and 1 guess you could
say I'd like to be on the AII-ACC squad."
Curry, like most Carolina players, enjoys
the home field advantage the Heels will have
Saturday against South Carolina.
"Having everyone stand up and yell when
we run out onto the field is really a great
feeling. My adrenalin gets going, and I get
very excited. I love to play at home."
By lifting weights in the off-season and
over the summer. Buddy devotes much of his
time to football. He says he doesn't think
there's any other way to do it. He's got to give
it his best effort.
"If you're going to do something well, you
should be willing to give it the best you have.
I play football, so 1 try to go out and give it
the best I have."

defenses in Kentucky, Texas Tech and State
and still was able to knock holes open for the
Carolina attack. It suffered one setback
when senior guard John Rushing suffered a
leg injury against Wake Forest two weeks
ago, but freshmen Donald Lucas filled in
against State and did what Dooley called "a
fine job."
A major job for the offensive line will be to
contain middle guard Roscoe Watson.
Rather than knock opposing centers out of
the way to get to the quarterback, Watson (5
feet 1 1, 195 lbs.) likes to leap frog the center,
Dooley said.
"Watson is quick," Carlen said, "but not
very big. We have a small team."
The Gamecock secondary is very quick
and, in free safety Curtis Boyd, has a prime
.pro prospect. . ,
"This is a very capable football team,"
Dooley said. "They're a lot better than a 4-3.,
record indicates."
The games South Carolina has lost this
season have been by two points (Georgia),
four points (Duke) and seven points
( M ississippi). The Gamecock's trip to North
Carolina is only the second trip they have
made this season. The first was last week
when they traveled to Oxford, Miss.; where
they lost 17-10.
