with city council
By STEVE WILSON
The SGA has established good
relations with the Greenville City
Council, according to Jerry Cox
the appointed student represent-
ative on the council.
Cox is present at all formal
meetings of the city council to
ensure that students' interests
Cox gives a report at each
formal meeting concerning
relevant student issues, but said
most of his input comes at the
informal �'workshops" held prior
to the formal meetings and at
meetings of subcommittees, two
of which Cox is a member.
Cox said he is pleased with the
city council members' receptive-
ness to student input.
"A city council is responsible
for considering and creating city
ordinances, and ECU students
deserve to be represented, since
they make up much of the
population of Greenville said
Cox is a member of both the
joint ECU-City Parking Commit-
tee, and the Bikeways Commit-
"The Parking Committee is
basically a link between the ECU
Traffic and Security Department
and theaty council
Joe Calder, ECU Traffic and
Security Director, is also a
member of the Parking Commit-
tee, whose main function is to
investigate and propose resolu-
tions to existing parking prob-
Cox cited as examples both

merchants objecting to having
students park on Reade Street,
and campus-wide violations of
parking ordinances during regist-
In each case, the special needs
of ECU students were oonsidered,
and the city council did what it
could to alleviate the problem by
allowing students to park on
Reade Street, and easing up on
citing parking violators during
A presumed problem by
students that really does not exist
is lack of parking space for day
students, Cox said.
He said much available park-
ing space is not used by students,
especially the spaces near
Mendenhall Student Center.
Cox also serves as a member
of the Bikeways Committee,
which is now considering a
possible paved path between

The Greenville City Council is
composed of six elected council-
men, and is chaired by Greenville
Mayor Percy Cox.
The idea of student represent-
ation on the city council was
proposed by former SGA
President Tim Sullivan.
Sullivan served as the first
student representative, and
intended the position fa SGA
presidents, but when Neil
Sessoms was elected as SGA
president last year, he assigned
the position a cabinet status so
the student representative could
devote more of his time to the
duties of the position.

SGA President Neil Sessoms

that he is working on a plan which
would partially fund symposiums.

The plan would provide fa a
committee to screen applicants
who wish to receive SGA funds
for their symposiums. The
amount of money raised by a

said. A total of $1500 would be
spent on the symposiums, which
is $2000 less than was spent last

Unable to vote
Students have puzzled over,
the fact that they have to pay
property taxes in Pitt County, but
can't vae in city elections.
Mrs. Margaret Register, who
waks at the County Board of
Elections, said "The requirement
is that one has to be a permanent
resident of the county to vote"
but, one has to pay taxes where
he or she owns property.
"If they don't want to pay
taxes here, they could just leave
their property at home, but if you
have a car out on the street and
it's stolen or burned up, who are
you going to call?"
Phillip Michaels, county tax
supervisa said that under the
Machinery Act, "If a student has
two a more dwellings where he
might spend the first day of the
year, he has to pay taxes in the
place where he spent the most
time last year
Floyd Little, a tax collector said
he could see the student's point of
view on the issue, but said that
he oouldn't personally comment.
When asked if the city might
be trying to avoid a situation
where the students took over the
city vrting, the officials were
Little said he thought that this
could be so, saying that some
people in the city may think of the
students as a transit body.
Michaels, however, said he didn't
believe that this was the case.
Pros and cons of gubernatorial succession
Editor's Note: The following
article concerns the voting being
held today on two state bonds, a
dean water bond and a highway
bond, and five amendments to the
North Carolina Constitution. Only
students who have obtained ab-
sentee ballots or are residents of
Greenville can vote.
Today the vrters of North
Carolina faoe a crucial decision. A
constitutional amendment is be-
fae the people fa ratification
concerning the right of the
governa and the It. governa of
Nath Carolina to succeed them-
selves in office.
This article is to educate the
reader on both sides of the
question so that he may make an
intelligent decision in the matter
of gubernatorial succession.
-The primary argument fa
succession is that the voters
should have the right to decide
whether the governa and It.
governa have perfamed well in
office and whether they should be
retained fa a second term. This
right is fundamental to demo-
cracy. An official who must
answer to the people at the polls
will be rrxxe responsive to the
wants and needs of the electaate.
-A limitation on the tarn of
the governa reduces the effec-
tiveness of the two-party system
as the party out of power never
has the opportunity to challenge
the incumbent's recad during an
election. All candidates are untes-
ted in the duties and responsibili-
ties of the govana's office.
-When a govana is limited
in his term, he is also limited in
his effectiveness as the state's
chief administrata of policy. The
governa, at present, is a "lame
duck after the first two years of
his term as the chances of his
programs passing are reduced
during the second biennium of
that tarn. This leaves the legisla-
ture the principle controller of
policy in the state. i
-Tarn limitation greatly re-
duces any continuity in state
government as most of the
gubernatorial appointees will
leave office with the expiration of
the govana's tarn.
-The diance of succession fa
the govana increases the clout
of the state in several areas of the
federal government. These strong
state-federal relationships benefit
the state greatly.
-The Genaal Assembly of
Nath Carolina passed legislation
during the 1977 session giving the
people the right to decide this
issue. This proves its confidence
as a body that succession will not
affect the legislature's indepen-
dence from the executive branch
-Only seven states at present
restrict their govanas to one
tarn. Forty-three states either
abandoned or never adopted
one-tarn restrictions In recent
years four states approved suc-
cession amendments which indu-
cted the incumbent govana.
-A one-tarn restridion is no
more indefensible than a two-
tarn restridion. Carrying the
demoaatic ideal to its logical
extreme would prohibit all restric-
tions on the numba of tarns.
-Amendment 3 should na be
approved because it does not
exdude the current govana and
It. govana Iran its provisions.
Succession should be made appli-
cable to future office-holders and
not the incumbents
-The present four-year tarn
does not allow the governor
enough time to build his own
dynasty a political machine.
-Allowing the succession in a
state where one party is tradition-
ally stronga gives the incumbent
govana an unfair advantage,
making it even more difficult fa
the second party to establish
-Removing the one-tarn res-
triction would greatly reduce
competition within an incum-
bent's own party sinoe chaJlen-
gers would be placed in the
position of running against the
-While the one-tarn limitation '
prevents an effedive govana
from succeeding himself, it also
provides a guarantee that a poa

-The one-tarn limitation de-
creases the chance of the gova-
na's using the last years of his
administration to campaign fa
-The one-tarn restridiai pro-
teds the separation of powas
between the executive and legis-
lative branches, maintaining the

Another factor that may

Civil rights violated
Last Spring two Houston, Tex. police officers
were charged by the state with murdering a young
Mexican-American man whom they beat up and
threw into the Buffalo Bayou, where he drowned.
They said they wanted to scare the man and " see
if a wetback could swim The jury, however, found
them only guilty of "negligent homicide a
misdemeanor, then probated the one year in jail,
$2,000 fine for this crime. The 12 members have said
then, in so many wads, that society condones this
sort of police brutality. And as Houston Rep. Ben
Reyes said, that's sick.
The federal government should, now, bring
indictments for violating Torres' civil rights against
these officers before the entire law enforcement
branch of the United States government becomes
nothing more than a mockery giving police an open
road to misuse their authority at the discretion of
Joe Campos Torres was first arrested by officers
Terry Denson and Stephen Orlando for public
drunkenness. Minutes later they beat Torres with
their fists and a flashlight so badly that the Houston
city jail supervisor would not let them admit him into
the jail until they took him to a hospital for treatment.
But instead of taking Torres to the hospital, they
took him to a secluded parking lot and beat him more
to, as one of them said, "scare" him. Then they lit
upon the idea of seeing if a "wetback" could swim
and threw him, drunk and beaten as he was, into the
bayou where his drowned body was found two days
Policemen have, in their power, the arm of the
court for teaching people the results of disobeying
the law, as public drunkenness is. They do not,
however, have the right to "scare" anyone through
unwarranted physical violence. Nor do they have the
power to arrest, try and oonvict-or execute-to their
discretion. Beatings and resulting murders are not
punishment fa public drunkenness.
But these two officers obviously had more in mind
than arresting a man fa public drunkenness.Their
racial prejudices were clearly indicated when they
called Tares a "wetback a slanderous term used
fa Mexican-Americans, and by their own admission
of wanting to "scare" Tares. This is enough fa civil
rights action. As Reyes also said, lawandader is not
found by scaring the Mexican-American community.
He called the light verdict and probation "Complete-
ly ridiculousa farce
A serious flaw exists in the law enforcement
institution. This flaw, according to Reyes, is
"allowing people to miscarry justice because we
want lawandader at any cost In this case, the cost
was death. If the Texas state government will not
attempt tocarect this evil, the federal government
must, through federal civil rights prosecution.
Police are endowed with a grave amount of power
over citizens. Fa example, they carry weapons and
have the right to search and seize persons. Because
of this, they must be responsible, fair and above
misusing this power fa persaial vendettas.
The oily way now fa police to be made aware
that they cannot commit "negligent homicide
manslaughter a murder and get away with it, as
Denson and Orlando have, is fa the federal
government to prosecute and make this case a dear
illustration of how far polioe power can go. It must
also make a positive declaration in support of
citizens' civil rights and the results of ignaing these
rights befae this precious aspect of United States
government becomes nothing mae than a passing
joke fa the oountry's so-called "peace officers
Denson and Orlando must be tried and convicted in
this respect. A man s life is worth more than one year
and $2,000 probated.

Reader displeased with SU Artist Series' Suzuki performance
I would like to express my
displeasure at the inclusion of the
Shinichi Suzuki Talent Education
Tour on the Student Union Artist
Series. Several points concerning
the quality and appropriateness
of the oonoert of last week should
Firstly, the music manage-
ment is a highly competitive,
commercfaJ enterprise. Managers
represents a "stable" of artists
whom the freely merchandise fa
an established fee. Selection of
each yearffe attractions requires
much badjround knowledge of
the muise world, as well as
mature financial and intellectual
Secondly, many series ticket
holders, I am certain, were not
aware of what the Suzuki organi-
zatioi represents. The children
who perfamed ai last week's
concert are products of Suzuki's
music education program and his
philosophy of "talent education"
(Suzuki's own term). By Suzuki's
own admission these children are
not being primed fa the concert
stage. He uses these children to
great advantage in his workshops
and demonstrations. His con-
certs, therefore, serve to promote
his method, his organization, his
materials, and his followers.
All oonoert goers are aware of
the precocious child perfamer.
However, this concert did not
serve the mature music lover. The
concert did promote the interests
of a special group of listeners, the
parents and children of the Suzuki
method. Many of the children
perfamed student waks extrac-
ted from Suzuki's method books.
These peices were perfamed in
robotlike fashion with insipid
piano aooompaniment. The pian-
ists, apparently under the um-
brella of Suzuki's talent educa-
tion, struggled unsuccessfully

To FOUNTAINHEAD: ,
The caption Campus Fatties

Nov. 1 edition, was at best auel.
It totally undid whatever good the
article attempted to aooomplish.
It is obvious someone was
concerned about the hunger
problem. The people in the photo
were probably just as ooncerned,
although they have a problem
themselves with weight. Yet, they
undoubtedly never got to the
article, being totally offended by
the photo and caption. The
caption-writer lost the audience
he was trying to reach. You can't
reach someone by cruelly berat-
ing them in front of 12,000 of their
peers. It just doesn't wak.

Mr. Klimek-perhaps you
should re-read my letter, fa (and
I take the liberty of quoting

From the obvious inapplica-
bility of your reply, you either
chose to ignae the very thesis of
my letter or simply couldn't
comprehend it. I rest my case.
It is silly to imply that a person
doesn't care about the hunger
problem simply because he is
overweight. I'm sure if the
caption-writer compared his ratio
of food intake to that of the
undernourished individual, he
would find he had little room to
Unfatunately, this is not the
first time a tasteless photo a

evaluating the impact of the

castic anger, no matter how
righteous we deem it, seldom
changes a situation, as it is
certainly proved in this case.

hearing this music perfamed ai

Hunger Coalition to sponsor day of fast
The Hunger Coalition, a group
of concerned students and
citizens formed on campus last

complexities involved in the
hunger issue and to build up
interest among the students and

"Presuming that one is
genuinely concerned, the answer
to world hunger is to study and
understand said Father Charles
Mulhdland, a campus chaplain.
More than 460 million people
in the world are hungry and
undernourished, although most
people with food eat more than
ever before, according to studies
made by OXFAM, an organiza-
tion to oombat hunger.
World hunger is more than a
problem of production and pop-
ulation In fact, many experts
believe that today's agricult e
can produce an adequate diet fa
everyone in the wald.
The real causes of hunger
involve the unequal distribution
of the wald's resouroes. The
solutions to the problem lie not
only in improved food production
and increased food aid, but
primarily in political decisions,
economic policies, and an earnest
willingness to change one's life-
style and values.
"The namal reactioi to the
hunger problem is 'I will give
money said Father
"This will help, but will not do
the job. There has to be a change
in the systems of distribution, and
this means a willingness to share
our own surplus. We must have a

ECU composer writes music of the future

Assistant Trends Editor
Dr. Otto Henry speaks from
his chair in his offioe on the
second floor of Fletcher RedtaJ

weird assortment of electrical
gadgets, cords, plugs and tape

for a clandestine CIA operative.

very musical and sensitive. He

his realization of Hdst's "The

Hdst didn't write, like bursts of

Tomita uses anything he can get

their 55-minutes onstage seem

Basically a jazz-influenced

aew, by missing impatant in-
strumental fills, and intermediat-

mixing traces of Dave Mason and
America at their most trite.
Although the groups' uneven
instrumental work proved to be

Michael Clarke played with the
aiginal Byrds and Flving Burrito
Brothers; vocalist guitarist Rick
Roberts was once a member of
the Burritos. With the release of
their debut album in '76, promo-

another supergroup; this was an
understatement to say the least.

necessary changes a will face a

Reflections on the death of Steve Biko
By TED LOCK WOOD
Special to the Trends Section
I met Steve Biko only onoe but
I remember him very well. I had
come to South Africa in 1971 to
observe two political trials. Two
years before, in 1969, Biko had
helped to found SASO, the South
African Students Organization,
the first step in what was to
become the Black Consciousness
We met in a room in the tiny
medical school near Durham
which each year graduates ten to
fifteen African, Indian and colour-
ed doctors to serve 20 million.
We talked about black theo-
logy. I argued that black theolo-
gians seemed to be saying that
only blacks were capable of
saving the world.
Biko said that was a distort-
ion. I had to understand that
Africans, Indians and coloured
people in South Africa had first to
free themselves from a sense of
inferiority and dependency on
white liberals. He attacked do-
gooders who dainitd that they
feel the oppression as acutely as
blacks. "Blacks do not need a go
between in this struggle fa their
I was reluctant to hear and to
understand his message and yet
in the end I knew he was right.
His personal strength, serious-
ness and warmth gave me a new
sense of what dialogue and
mutual respect between the races
And now Steve Biko is dead,
dead and buried, dead at the age
of 30. Dead from being detained
by the South African police. Dead
from causes that may never be
In a .sense, Biko isjust one in
a host of mutilated victims of
Apartheid. But in another sense,
Biko's death is unique. He was
the leading thinker in the Black
Consciousness Movement. A man
who inspired fearlessness in a
people who had been utterly
intimidated by overwhelming
force. Yet he was a man of gentle,
soft-spoken warmtn end grace.
Now the American govern-
ment is joining in the tribute to
Biko and calling fa an investiga-
tion to his death. How ironic.

al guitar and sax solos (in the
tradition of Loggins and Mes-
sina), and controlled by the
wistfulness of vocalist Rick Ro-
berts meshed with the roughness
of vocalist Larry Burnett.
�' So Long started the perfor-
mance, with Firefall displaying
two of their very few assets: the
overall vocal harmonies and their
inclination (too often restrained)
to rock. Guitartist Jock Bartley let
it be known who would handle
most of the lead wak throughout
the show. Bartley was at his best
on the looser, mae improvisional
material. But he remains mae
show than virtuoso-repetition is
not the mark of a good guitarist.
Bartley fits well, however, into
, the limited structure of the band.
On "Getaway the slide licks
were stolen directly from ex-
Allman Brother "Dicky" Betts,
but Bartley improved on "No
Way Out" with tasty tena sax
response fron Firefall's recent
addition, David Muse. Muse
(alternating on keyboards, sax,
agan, moog synthesizer, flute
and harmonica) along with drum-
mer Clarke and bassist Mark
Andes lay down a functionable, if
maybe not flashy, rhythm fa the
three guitarists out front.
Firefall kept the mae popular
candy-coated radio songs tight,
usually attempting to reaeate the
vinyl versions live. It failed.
Vocally, numbers like "Just
Remember I Love You "Cin-
derella and "You Are the
Woman" lacked a necessary cae,
and came off as very weak.
Two exceptions were the
Stephen Stills' penned number,
"It Doesn't Matter which was
the song that put the band over
the FM progressive waves, and
'Livin' Ain't Livin which was
heightened by Muse's sax display
in a lengthy solo spot.
The band functions much
better on a looser rock basis. This
was proven on the thrusting
rocker, "Even Steven the har-
monica-centered "Sold On You

Pirates rout Mountaineers 45-14
By CHRIS HOLLOW AN
In what has to be tbe Pirates
best total efforts of the year, East
Carolina intercepted five passes,
reoovered two fumbles and put 45
points on the board in a rout of
Appalachian State. Coach Dye
has been worried all week about
his team and the negative effects
that the loss to Southwestern
Louisiana might have. He also
had in his mind the beating that
the Mountaineers had put on the
Pirates two years ago in Boone.
In that game the ASU offense
ian all over the Pirate defense
running up a 41-7 led before the
Pirates were able to get anything
ng in an eventual 41-25 rout.
This time however Dye's dreams
were sweet ones as the Pirates
increased their record to eight
wins and two losses. In the
process of winning the Pirates
may have once again put them-
selves in contention fa a bowl bid
of some kind.
The game itself started off
rather bad for the Pirates. After
stopping the Mountaineer offense
Gerald Hall was back to receive a
punt. The punt, was fumbled
however and the Mountaineers
reoovered on the ECU 10 yard
line. After a penalty the ASU
ense got back to the ten and
Robby Price hit Scott McConnell
h a touchdown pass. The kick
Davis was ycoo and the
I 'ountaineers, to the delight of
fans, had 7-0 lead.
Their joy was short lived
owever as the lead lasted only
iong enough for the Pirates to get
the ball. After the kickoff return
of Tony Collins put the ball at the
ECU 31 Southerland showed
some of his wishbone magic. On
first down he took the ball around
the left end to about the 40, where
he pitched back to Eddie Hicks
just before he was hit. Hicks then
in the clear ran all the way for a 69
yard touchdown. In that one play
he had a game high fa the
season. It was also the first time
the outside pitch had waked so
well this year. This tied the scae
at 7-7 after a Junia Creech kick
A few minutes later Hall made
amends fa the dropped punt. He
intercepted a Robby Price pass at
the ASU 47. From there Leander
Green hit Terry Gallaher fa a 16
yard pass. Then Green kept fa 13
more. Theodae Sutton hit the
middle of the Mountaineer line
fa 15 more to the ASU three. Two
plays later Eddie Hicks scaed his
second touchdown of the day. The
PAT was good and made the
scae 14-7 ECU.
Appalachian then drove from
its own 24 to the East Carolina 31
where the drive fizzled out. The
Mountaineers then tried a fake
field goal pass but it was dropped
turning over the ball to the
The East Carolina offense
then proceeded to drive down
field for another score. Sam
Harrell gained 14 yards on the
first play and on a third and three
from the ASU 45, Sutton broke
lose fa a 22 yard gain to the 23
yard line. The drive ended here

however and Junia Creech hit a
35-yard field goal to make the
After a few plays by Appala-
chian Noah Clark reoovered a
Mountaineer fumble at the ASU
34 yard line. Southerland then
drove the Pirates down field
picking up 15 yards on the first
three downs. Then from the four
yard line Green scaed on a
quarterback keeper around the
right side with about five minutes
left in the half. The Creech kick
was good and the scae became
ECU 24-ASU 7.
Only two plays after the kick
to ASU the Pirates were back in
business. Thomas McLaurin in-
tercepted quarterback Chris
Schwecker at the 42 setting up
another scaing chance. Schwec-
ker was in to replace starting
Mountaineer quarterback Robby
Price who received a neck injury
when he was hit by Harold
Randolph and Noah Clark.
With Southerland at the con-
trols the senia fran Wilmington
N.C. picked up 23 yards himself
and then passed to Terry Gal laher
fa 12 mae. The Pirates received
two five-yard penalties on the
drive but were able to overoome
them with Willie Hawkins going
in fa the soae. This made the
scae at the half after another
Creech PAT, ECU 31-ASU 7.
In the second half a mistake
by Harold Randolph allowed the
Mountaineers to receive the
kickoff when East Carolina could
have received it. The Mountain-
eers drove from their 36 to the
ECU 20. It was here that Willie
Hoi ley intercepted a pass and
returned it to the ECU 47 yard
The Pirates onoe again drove
down field fa the soae. The key
plays in the drive were catches by
Gallaher of 23 and 11 yards. This
put the ball on the ASU two yard

Gray excited about season
By DAVID MERRIAM
If one looked at last year's
ECU basketball won loss reoad,
they would be inclined to be
skeptical about this year's team.
With a 10-18 mark, and a squad of
roundball players that were liter-
ally pushed all over the oourt, one
oould only speculate as to how
good this years team would be. It
was obvious that some changes
needed to be made. Well, some
changes have been made. That o
Larry Gillman being appointed
head ooach to a ship of sinking
Pirates, appears to be the biggest
and best improvement this year.
"I'm very excited about this
year's team, and I expect some
fine perfamances by all of our
players commented Gillman.
One player Gillman is expecting a
great deal from is returning
faward, Herb Gray.
"Herb has the potential and
athletic ability to be as good a
player as he wants, I'll be
expecting a la from him this
season commented Gillman
when asked about the 6'712"
sophomore. "Herb must play
hard, be consistent, and be
continually competitive to really
develop into one of the area's
finest big men
Herb agreed, "I know to
develop into an offensive and
defensive threat, I must wak
hard. I'm in the best physical
shape I've ever been in since I
came to ECU "Even our center,
Greg Canelius can outrun many
Despite the fact that Herb has
had a stressed fracture in his
right arch, hehasna let that stop
him from practicing.
I tape it every day and refuse
to sit out practice, I'm na going
to baby my injury, a use it as an
excuse to take it easy, I'm really
fired up into playing this year
So one might ask, "What s
the difference in last years team
and this years?" After a moment
of concentration Herb answered,
"This year we have one of the
best college coaches available, we
have an offensive threat, (that of
oourse being junia transfer Oli-
ver Mack) and we have a team
that is always waking at im-
provement "We have utilized
our fast break, and set up our
man to man defense much
However, a key to all this
might still rest in Coach Gillman
He has tightened up what has
returned from last year, and
developed the 'alent that was
often overlooked. With modest
flare Coach Gillman was quick to
add, "Thisteam is going to shock
an awful la of folks, and when we
surprise Indiana, those same
folks are gonna' sit up and take
As Herb summed it up, "We
have enough good players to
finish with an excellent season,
and the type of coach to get us

Gillman will use this game to
evaluate his teams progress in
practice this year.

importance of student involve-
ment, and hopes for a big turn out
at the scrimmage.

had another chance to score when
senior Steve Hale intercepted a
pass at the ASU 40. The drive
only got to the 29. A few plays
later however the Pirates got the
ball back again when Matt Jones
hit the Mountaineer halfback and
he fumbled the ball. D.T. Joyner
recovered for the Pirates at the
nine yard line.
From here the Bucs went in
fa another soore in three plays.
Sam Harrell made the touchdown
from two yards out. The Creech
kick was good for the sixth time
and the soore was ECU 45-ASU 7.
In the fourth quarter ASU got
the ball on the ECU 36 line after
forcing the Pirate offense into a
hole on the three. From there the
Mountaineers push the ball down
to the one where Greg Kilday
scored. This finished out the
scoring fa the day fa both teams
making the final score ECU
The Pirates finished the game
with 363 yards total offense. This
was down however from the 406
that they had at the end of the
third quarta. The younger play-
ers took over in the fourth quarta
but wae unable to move the ball
Eddie Hicks was the leading
rusha fa the Pirates with three
carries fa 73 yards. Theo Sutton
had seven rushes fa 54 yards.
The two Pirate quarterbacks
Leanda Green and Jimmy South-
aland combined fa 60 yards
passing ai eight of ten attempts
with no intaoeptions.
The Pirate defense was out-
standing to say the least. The
Pirate defense picked off five
passes and reoovaed two fum-
bles in a great effat.
The win raised the Pirates
bowl hopes which wae thought at
one time to be gone. Develop-
ments ova the weekend changed
things a bit and a win ova
William and Mary this weekend
might earn the Pirates sane kind
of bowl invitation. Nothing is
known at this time howeva just
what East Carolina's chances are
fa a bowl bid. It is only known
that they do exist.
