Point-system changes emphasize recreation , not competition
The UNC intramural office is no loncer tabulatine Doints for each snort, a
process which used to decide the overall champion in the residence hall, fraternity,
women's and graduate-independent divisions. Points were given for entering a team
and then more points were awarded for winning the sport. From these points an
eventual overall champion was determined.
In a decision reached last spring, the intramural office, then under director Ben
McGuire and assistant Marty Pomerantz, decided to do away with the point
system, thus leaving it up to fraternity and residence hall managers and interested
students to devise their own system.
"Coming from the Midwest, Ben (McGuire) and 1 saw that the trend around the
country was one of the intramural programs going more to a system without
points," Pomerantz said. "More and more, programs were emphasizing recreation
and not, so much, competition.
"This is not to say we're trying to do away with competition but just some of the
hostility that this higher level of competition breeds. There will still be champions in
each individual sport but no overall winner."
Win-Loss records are currently used to determine the champions in individual
Although the intramural office will not select an overall champion, both the
fraternities and residence halls have plans underway to try to keep the point system
a part of intramurals.
The residence hall managers organized an intramural point committee and made
up their own point system similar to the system used last year when the intramural
office did the tabulating.
Under the residence hall system sports will be divided into major, intermediate
and minor sports. Major sports include tag football, volleyball, basketball, soltball
, Intermediate sports are track and tennis while minor sports include table tennis,
horseshoes, racquetball, bowling, badminton and golf.
Major sports will get 50 entrance points and 100 achievement points.
Achievement points are determined by dividing the number of achievement points
(100 for major sports, 80 for intermediate sports and 60 for minor sports) available
for a sport by the number of games won by the winning team. The result then is
multiplied by the number of games won by other teams.

For both intermediate and minor sports the system is the same except there are
only 40 entrance points awarded toanintermediatesportand30loraminorsport.
The fraternities have set up their own committee and are working to get a point
system of their own organized.
Interfraternity Council (IFC) executive vice-president l orn I errell said he talked
with former intramural director Ben McGuire last year.
"He and I sat down and drew up some things to be considered this fall. Everything
changed because of McGuires change in positions," Terrell said. McGuire was
reassigned by the physical education department last summer.
"It's just taking time to complete it (the points system), and my agreement was
with Ben McGuire and not with the intramural office. I have not been rccontacted
concerning this by Dr. Shields. I guess he thinks we're going tocontinue on the way
we had planned (before he took over).
"Ben suggested the change because of. one. the bickering he had heard concerning
the point system; and this way if the IK" did it there would be less bickering, And.
two. it would give us more say so in the decision."
An U C committee was set up to determine an applicable point sstem for the
fraternities. It is headed by Handle Williams.
"What w e are planning to do."W illiamssaid. "is after the end of each major sports
season we (the committee) will sit down and figure out the points.
"One of the main reasons I want to keep the point system is try and keep up
participation. Also. 1 hope it would reduce the number of forfeits.
"We hope to have a system similar to the one used last year. 1 really don't think.
though, that many people realize that the point system is no longer being used by the
Williams added that if anyone was interested in helping his committee they could
contact him at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.
Before Ben M cGuire became intramural director there had been no"outsider" in
the intramural pi 'ogram in years. Most of the recent directors before McGuire were
products of the UNC system.
Intramural dire ctor Ed Shields believes this is one of the reasons for the shift in
philosophy in the intramural office.
"Before Ben and Marty, competition had been the big thing and the recreational
aspect had not bee n that emphasized. With Ben the emphasis became more and
more on recreation and less on the fierce type of competition that breeds hostility."
"We have had otln;r problems with the point system," Pomerantz said. "Last year
we had some real blatant cheating, such as ineligible players playing. 1 think it's
because of the tremendous pressure to win.
"Another time a st udent came into the office and asked me if he had to play
soltball for his dorm. I asked what he meant and found out that his intramural
manager was pressurin g the student to play, even though it was quite evident that he
didn't want to play."
