Cavs cant get on track
Carolina's offense gets a break
By GENE LPCHI RCH
Carolina's offense, struggling and sputtering with only glaring
exceptions, should get a chance to have a game Saturday against
Virginia where a fumble recovery on its opponents' five-yard line
means more than a field goal.
Virginia has been fighting this season against all odds to work itself
into football respectability. But the Cavaliers still have some way to
go with a 1-7-1 record and a meet with the Tar Heels this week. Any
objective, honest observer of football in the ACC will say the Cavs
have as much chance of moving across midfield much less scoring
as a car without wheels. It could be done, but not easily.
"If we go up there and play like we're capable, we should win,"
UNC coach Bill Dooley said Tuesday. "If we don't, we could come
home with a loss."
Carolina's defense should have no trouble containing Virginia's
less-than-potent offense, even though it has come alive lately with a
quarterback change. And the Tar Heel offense, which had to settle
for a field goal in the 13-13 tie against Clemson Saturday after
recovering a fumbled punt on the Clemson five-yard line, should
have a chance to improve its potency.
Clyde Christensen should get the call at quarterback for the Heels
because starter Matt Kupec injured his shoulder against the Tigers.
Christensen directed the drive that set up the tying field goal
Saturday but he said he didn't think Dooley had confidence in him,
resulting in lack of playing time.
"I have confidence in all our quarterbacks," Dooley said Tuesday.
"Otherwise, he wouldn't have been out there then."
Dooley said both Christensen and P. J. Gay are the team's No. 2
quarterbacks, but that Christensen, a tough former junior college
All-America, has earned the starting berth
if Kupec is unable to
"Clyde probably has earned the right to be the first starter," he
said. "But the one who has the hot hand will be the one we go with."
Kupec, Dooley admitted, has not been as quick as he used to be,
since he underwent surgery for a knee injury sustained in 1975.
"Matt is probably not getting on the corner as well as he used to,"
Dooley said. "It might be his knee injury. He's not able to maneuvei
as well. He's not gun shy, he's just not as mobile. He should be able to
get better and better."
Inconsistency, Dooley said, is the disease plaguing the Tar Heel
offense this season. The offense seemingly runs into a brick wall deep
in its opponents' territory and must rely on Tom Biddle's kicking to
put points on the board.
"I don't think the offense is that bad," Dooley said. "It has been
inconsistent, and I'm not pleased with that. We can play better
defensively than we did Saturday and need to play more consistent
offensively. But I'm not going to throw darts at either of them."
Despite Virginia's overall losing effort this season in football, the
Cavs do have a couple of players that could make something happen
Saturday. Russ Henderson, the team's kicking specialist, has punted
70 times this season (none were blocked) and has connected on all
five of his field goal attempts to lead the Cavs in scoring with 17
points. In addition, Chip Mark has moved to quarterback.
"The best thing they've done all season is put Mark at
quarterback," Dooley said. "Since Mark was moved to quarterback,
they're not making as many mistakes and are playing better

Less emphasis on winning hopes to curb disagreements
Intramurals. How important are
they? Are they important enough to
fight an opposing team or important
enough to play just a little dirty?
UNC intramurals are the major
sports setting for most students, where
they can let off some energy and steam.
But in the past, fighting among
participants, which results in suspension
from the intramural program for at least
a semester, has marred some intramural
events. Even though the intramural
office discourages violence, there are no
established rules for action against
students who fight during intramural
"There is no definite line which we
draw if a fight occurs during an
intramural game," said Ed Shields,
UNC intramural director. "Usually we
will suspend the offender for at least the
remainder of the game and often until
the end of the sport's season in which the
person was caught fighting.
"We try to talk to all those involved, i
from the officials to team members to
those involved in the fighting. It's not
the kind of thing that is slapped on
someone haphazardly. We try to handle
it situation-by-situation. In the past we
By RICK SCOPPE
have had more troubles than we have
had so far this semester. But really
fighting is not that big a problem here."
Under Shields and assistant
intramural director Marty Pomerantz,
the intramural program has taken an
abrupt shift in philosophy this semester
from past years. The emphasis has
become more and more on the
recreational aspect of intramurals and
less on the fierce type of competition to
win at any cost.
"Many times the participants seem to
lose their perspective," Shields said.
"But as playoff time rolls around, and
many teams are struggling to get into the
playoffs, there is more pressure to win
and consequently.; more chance that
-stwnething may happen.
"One year during halftime of an
intramural basketball game I went to
center court and called the officials and
the two captains from both teams over
DISPLAY ADS DUE
3 BUSINESS DAYS
and told them if the second half was
anything like the first half I would
declare a double forfeit. And this was a
semifinal playoff game."
Usually the intramural office tries to
schedule the best officials for playoff
"The better officials tend to not let
that type of thing (fighting) occur. But
there seems to always be some
participants who have no patience at all.
On every call someone will bellyache.
"We realize that playoffs are a high
pressure situation, but it seems that the
participants could be a little more
tolerant in their dealings with the
officials," Shields said.
Intramural officials operate under a
protective -rule which states if "any
participant hits an official, the person
will no longer be able to participate in
intramurals at UNC.
"That rule does seem to keep people
from going too far in dealing with the
officials. We haven't had a case of a
participant hitting an official in a long
Basketball, Shields said, seems to be
the one sport where tempers Hare more
than in any other sport.
"In basketball once the shot goes up
everyone goes to the boards and that's
where we get a lot of contact and a lot of
elbows being thown."
Shields said he believed most
intramural programs slowly were going
more and more to a recreational type
"I would say everyone who isa part of
an intramural program abhors this type
of thing (fighting) and hopefully, with
more emphasis on the recreational
aspect of sports, we can do away with

November 9, 1977 The Daily Tar Heel 5
on bland note
By WILL WILSON
Stiff W riter
Ending a season filled with high pointi
and low ones, UNC women's tennis team
had neither Tuesday in defeating East
.. The match, as advertised, was an
opportunity for the Pirate netters to gain
experience against higher caliber
competition. However, they didn't gain at
much as they might have since the match
took just a little over two hours to complete.
For the Tar Heels it was a chance for both
the lower-ranking starters to play higher up
and for the reserves to get some playing time.
All five freshmen and one sophomore filled
the UNC singles lineup, and none lost more
than five games.
Carolina thus ended its fall season with a
9-2 record, losing to Yale and Virginia and
falling a little short of the undefeated season
coach Kitty Harrison predicted before the
first match in September.
"(The losses) were disappointing and
unexpected Virginia in particular," she
after the match T uesday. "Our team is player
for player stronger than theirs. I didn't know
that much about Yale it could've gone
The Tar Heels reached the high point of
their season on Oct. 1 2 when they defeated
Duke in a dual match just after winning the
initial ACC women's tennis tournament.
Carolina fielded a young team this fall,
with three freshmen in the starting lineup.
"It's a question of adjusting for them,"
Harrison said, "and I think they did. It's a
tremendous change for them."
Among the freshmen, Lloyd Hatcher and
Betty Baugh Harrison compiled the best
records, each losing only once. The other
first-year player who started, Margaret
Scott, was 9-5.
Sophomore Janet Shands finished 1 1-0,
tv hile junior Susie Black, the No. I player,
was 6-6 and Carney Timberlake was 84.
"Now they're going to concentrate on
academics," Harrison said in looking to the
immediate future. "But I'm going to work
with some of them on corrective things."
