Students robbed outside Fletcher
Stephanie Lassiter
News Editor
ECU police continue to search
for an assailant who approached
two female students Tuesday
evening, snatched a purse from
one of them and fled on a bicycle.
At approximately 7:15 p.m.
Tuesday two ECU campus resi-
dents were walking to Fletcher
Hall when a black male ap-
proached them and snatched a
purse belonging to one of the
girls. The suspect snatched the
purse, valued at $40, containing
a wallet, $120, her driver's license,
ECU identification card and a
pocket calendar.
Two White Hall residents who
observed the crime said the man
was loitering before grabbing the
purse from the victim. After tak-
ing the purse, they saw him run
into nearby shrubs, then flee to-
wards Reade Circle and Cotanche
Street on an older model, men's-
style, 10-speed bicycle.
"He was running at a rather
slow pace for someone who just
stole a purse, and he got his bike
and rode off said a witness who
asked not to be identified.
The suspect was identified as a
black male, in his earlv 20s, be-
tween 5-feet-10-inches and 6-feet
in height, of slender build, me-
dium complexion, a close cut
shaven hairstyle. He was wearing
a lightblue, long-sleevesweatshirt
with a flannel shirt or jacket tied
around the waist and light blue
sweat pants. Because the victim
was approached from behind, she
did not get a look at the suspect's
face, but the witnesses from White
Hall helped give the description.
Both of the witnesses told the of-
ficer on duty that they could not
identify the assailant, because they
did not see him welll enough.
According to the victim, who
asked not to be identified, she and
a friend had parked her car on the
southwest side of Fletcher Hall
before unloading their groceries
and walking toward Fletcher. The
victim said her friend had noticed
the subject, thought he looked out
of place, but did not mention it to
her friend.
"I saw him when we were driv-
ing up and he looked suspicious,
but I didn't feel unsafe the
victim's friend said.
The victim said after her purse
had been snatched, she screamed
for help, but no one came to her
defense. ECU Sgt. Gurley said of-
ficers were between shifts at the
time of the robbery.
Chief Teresa Crocker, director
of the ECU police department said
although the patrol units do switch
shifts at 7 p.m that should not
have affected the response to the
"They came in at 7 p.m so I
don't see that as being a problem
Crocker said.
Crocker said the area is not a
potentially dangerous area be-
cause it is well-lit and generally
there are a lot of patrol officers in
the area.
"As a matter of fact, we were
out there on Halloween and it is
very well lit, almost like daylight
Crocker said.
Both the victim and her friend
believe the campus is generally
safe and that usually there are
plenty of patrol officers around,
but on this occasion, there were no
patrol officers around to help.
"I think there should have been
somebody down there the
victim's friend said. "There was
nobody on this area of campus. In
the past I've felt safe, but last night
there was
when we
said the
two girls
were being
safe by
walking in
pairs and
in well-lit
areas, but
they were
simply vic-
tims of a
"I think they did a lot of things
right she said. "Students should
be aware of their surroundings
Crocker does not believe the
department is close to finding the
assailant, as the description fits
the ordinary, average guy.
"The description was
vague �we just didn't have
enough Crocker said. "There
is just no evidence to solve it

Several attacks by an unre-
strained animal on campus have
sparked university action and
plans to enforce its Animals On
Campus policy by Jan. 1,1995.
The most recent attack hap-
pened last week to Officer David
Syth of the ECU Bicycle Patrol.
"I'd noticed several dogs over
between Rawl and The Student
Store when the same one who
went after me was barking at a
student sitting on the wall Syth
said. "I went ahead and called an
animal patrol officer when the
dog started on my boot and
worked its way up my leg. It kind
of shocked me because I'm an
animal lover. He joined up with
two other dogs and ran off
Syth said the bite didn't break
the skin. He was treated for minor
abrasions and said that on the day
after this incident, the police were
called to the same area about a dog
barking at students.
Tom Pohlman, environmental
health specialist for the Office of
Environmental Healthand Safety,
said there have been several other
attacks this semester.
"We've had two animal bites
on campus that I know of
Pohlman said. "One was a student
bitten by a stray cat while trying to
handle the cat. We have one case
of a student reporting being at-
tacked and cornered by dogs but
not bitten, and one other attack by
dogs with the cornering of a per-
son that was witnessed by a police
officer. So, we are seeing this start
to occur, and I think we are going
to see more and more
The policy, which was re-
vamped and put into effect in 1992,
is in compliance with the law and
ordinances of theCity of Greenville
and applied to the control of ani-
mals on the university campus.
Animals brought on campus must
be restrained. Restrained, by policy
guidelines, means controlled by a
leash, under direct voice control,
within a vehicle or within a secure
"The policy has been in effect
Pohlman said. "What we have seen
this year is an increase in number
of unrestrained animals roaming
on campus loose. What we are
trying to do is start a process to let
students know that we are going
to start handling this as a problem
because it is beginning to show
itself as a problem.
"A dog should be attached to a
leash, and a leash should be at-
tached to an owner, if thev are
going to bring a dog on campus
Pohlman said.
Some of these animals are be-
lieved to wander on campus from
surrounding areas while others are
brought onto campus by students.
"Most of our on-campus ani-
mals come from apartments off-
campus said Dr. Ronald Speier,
dean of students. "There are other
people who bring their dogs on
campus to run them or to exercise
Pohlman said the number of
unrestrained dogs around cam-
pus is getting too high.
" At one point, one of our safety
officers here in this department
counted 10 different dogs here on
campus running loose Pohlman
said. "When you have a campus
with a large number of students,
i t becomes pretty important to con-
trol these hazards
Communication split questioned
Teresa Crocker, director of Pub-
lic Safety, said that another con-
cern was the possible spread of
"Obviously, there are a lot of
surrounding counties, a lot of
counties in the state that have had
rabies outbreaks. I think if you go
out and look at the dogs that are
roaming around, you don't see
tags on them. You don't see that
these dogs have been immunized.
When you have a population as
dense as this area with as many
people as we have, it can turn out
to be a tremendous problem. I
think the problem falls back on
the university to do something
about it. lt'sour problem Crocker
If a student is attacked by a dog
or feels threatened, Crocker said
the student should call the ECU
police department. If the police
have time to handle the situa-
tion themselves, they will try
to capture the dog or, in most
cases, will call the Greenville
Animal Control, which is an
agency specifically trained for
such situations. However, in
either case, if the dog has tags,
the agency will contact the
owner and handle the dog un-
der the regulations for the city's
"It's not that we have any-
thing against dogs or anything
against dog owners Pohlman
said. "One of the reasons our
country is as safe as it is with
rabies is because of our animal
controls. If you go to Mexico,
you will find a lot more people
dying of animal-related dis-
eases because of the lack of

Although ECU'scommunication
department split last February, ques-
tions still remain among facul ty and
students concerning the effect of the
break-up on the cum'cul 11 ti and the
allocation of resources.
The division moved the bach-
elor of sdence program into the
School of Education's library sci-
ence department, while the bach-
elor of arts program will remain
within ECU's College of Arts and
Dr. Keats Sparrow, dean of the
College of Arts and Sciences, be-
lieves the division began within the
"Three of the faculty members
approached the School of Education
about moving from the communica-
tion department to the School of
Education because they felt their ori-
entation toward the communication
discipline was more akin to the mis-
sion of the School of Education
Sparrow said.
Dr. T. Harrell Allen, chair of the
B. A. program, said two faculty mem-
bers requested the move and one
faculty member chose to follow.
Sparrow said he would have been
happy to have the B.S. program re-
main, but did not try to interfere with
the decision to separate.
"It was a very bottom-up process,
it was not a top-down Sparrow
said. "It was a completely open pro-
cess. When there are philosophical
differences among professionals,
emotions can run high.
"Those people who wanted to
leave the communication depart-
ment, had only two or three years
earlier been involved in the found-
ing of the department, and they be-
gan to disagree with the way it was
going Sparrow said.
B.S. professor Dr. Jeanne Scafella
does not share this opinion.
"The faculty were effectively
barred from ever bringing issues to
vote, specifically code and curricu-
lum for the department Scafella
"I would think there are a lot of
philosophical differences between
the two groups � one is theoretical
and one is more applied said Dr.
Charles Coble, dean of the School of
Scafella agrees. "There are dis-
tinct differences on the focus of mass
media studies she said. "We in the
B.S. program did not feel human

Space may not be the final
frontier for some pregnant rats.
Drs. Hubert W. Burden and
Randall H. Renegar of the de-
partment of anatomy and cell
biology at the ECU School of
Medicine, are studying pregnant
rats, hoping to answer many
questions surrounding repro-
duction and fetal development
in space.
Last week, a group of rats
from ECU will embark on a jour-
ney into space to help research-
ers find out how the lack of grav-
ity and weightlessness affects
not only the pregnancy, but the
unborn rats as well.
Burden and Renegar are part
of an international research team
that hopes to answer questions
about microgravity (near-
weightlessness) and G-forces in-
herent in space flight and travel
to see how the flight affects the
mammalian reproductive sys-
tem and fetal development in
the uterus.
The data collected will be ben-
eficial, as researchers continue
to discuss the feasibility of a
space station and possible colo-
nization of extraterrestrial bod-
"The studies conducted bv
Drs. Burden and Renegar are
fundamental to long-term ex-
ploration and colonization of
space said Dr. Jack E. Brinn,
chair of the department of
anatomy and cell biology.
The rats will be on the
space shuttle Atlantis, sched-
uled to blast off this morn-
ing. On the shuttle, 188 miles
above Earth, the rats will
spend days nine through 20
of their 22-day gestation pe-
riod in near weightlessness.
A control group of rats will
remain on earth for compari-
son. Days nine through 12
are especially critical to the
developing embryos.
"The time of the flight is
very critical to the develop-
ment of the fetuses said

was involved in the early
stages of the research. "It has
never been established what

"If they are students' dogs and
the owners don't want them

there's no way they can do any-

Chancellor Richard Eakin said he
would have preferred the programs
to have remained together, but be-
lieves the separate programs will
thrive. "I think the faculty had many
points of view as to the nature of the
program and, as a result of that, it
seems the most beneficial way to
deal with that difference, or sets of
differences, was to actually divide
the program into two parts, Eakin
"One of which would continue to
be more theoretical in nature, that is
the existing communication depart-
ment in the College of Arts and Sci-
ences, and the other being a media-
based program which is now located
in the School of Education. It is rela-
tively infrequent in fact that a de-
partment divides. I think this is an
unusual event at the university "
A letter sent to B.S. students last
February stated the division "recog-
nizes the close relationship among
the audio, video and other educa-
tional technologies in a rapidly
emerging alliance, while continuing
thephilosophical integrity of rheBA.
Whetherstudents transferred with
the B.S. program or not, students
should be informed of thebasic make-
up of the new programs, said Vice
Chancellor for Academic Affairs
Tinsley Yarbrough.
"1 think the critical responsibility
we have is to make certain that stu-
dents are a ware of each program and
the orientation of each program
they may not be, and that may be a
problem Yarbrough said. "In that
case, it is the responsibility of the two
units to try to clarify this
Coble said he held a meeting for
communication students during the
summer to inform B.S. students about
what was happening.
"We wanted them to know that
we were excited about the B.S. stu-
dents being a part of the School of
Education, and I assured them that
they would be with advisers that
cared about them and would give
them support he said.
Three full time tenured faculty
membersand 1 lOmajorsmovedwith
the B.S. program, according to the
registrar's office. The B.A. program
has five full time faculty, tour part
time and 68 majors. The faculty num-
bers were obtained through the Aca-
demic Affairs office and do not in-
clude graduate assistants or adjunct
faculty members.
A June 7 agreement defined the
division of educational resources
between the two programs. The
agreement proposed by Allen and
Dr. Larry Auld, chair of the depart-
ment of library sciences, said the B.S.
program would bring three profes-
sors into the School of Education.
The school may hire an additional
faculty member in 1995.
"The university did give us an
additional fourth faculty member
for this fall Coble said. "I was un-
able to get any more tenure track
professors they have no guaran-
tees they'll have a job next y ar
Allen said none of the five full-
time and four part-time B.A. faculty-
are tenured, two of which teach only
speech courses. The department of
communication is planning to ten-
ure three professors within the next
year, Allen said.
Currently the faculty-to-student
ratio is higher within the B.A. pro-
"We provide course work for the
general education requirements, in
many cases we offer the course work

ment would transfer to the B.S.

The largest portion of equip-
ment listed as belonging to the
B.S. program isa studio located in

ally belongs to the department of
academic communications sup-
port services (ACSS) and is avail-
able for use by the B.S. classes only
on Thursdays, said Gary
Weathersbee, ACSS director.
Existing stud ioequipment and
SI (X),tXX) was transferred from the
department of communication to
the ACSS toequip and operate the
oyner studio. ACSS Ls a collabo-
rative effort among several uni-
versity departments to provide
audio-visual services.
Weathersbee said the ACSS de-
partment will move to a new stu-
dio when Joyner renovations are
completed within the next five
vears. He said he believes the ex-
isting studio will then belong to
the B.S. program.
The B.S. program received all
television production equipment
and the bulk of the audio equip-
ment, according to Allen.
Some of the cameras acquired
by the B.S. program are 10 years
old,said B.S. professor James Rees.
"We are delighted to be here, but
we are not happy about the fac-
ulty and equipment resources that
are available
Coblehasrequested additional
funds from the office of the vice
chancellor for academic affairs to
purchase new equipment for the
B.S. program.
"The B.S. program is not ad-
equate and is not up todate they
didn't have the right stuff and
they didn't have enough of it
Coble said. "They didn't have the
current equipment needed
Most equipment purchased
since 1993 remained with the B.A.
program. Much of the equipment
used in the B.A. program consists
of cameras and computer equip-
ment for field production, Allen
said. The B.S. program offers stu-
dents four concentrations: elec-
tronic news, broadcast perfor-
mance, prcxiuction and mass me-
dia management. Catalog listings

The fall school
semester is quickly
drawing to a close. With
papers due and final exams
to prepare for, we are all
searching for ways to
relieve stress. What better
stress relief can you think
of than going to a football
game and screaming
support for your team?
Don t be fooled. This is
not one of the usual
meaningless lectures that
extol the virtues of
cheering for your team.
Indeed, much is on the line
this weekend for our
Pirates. If you are one of
those self-admitted, fair-
weather, band-wagon fans
who goes to games only in
crisis situations, you should
attend this weekend's
This Saturday, if ECU
defeats Central Florida,
they will be assured of a
winning season, something
not accomplished since
1991. Also, the Pirates will
vasdy increase their chances
of gaining a Liberty Bowl
However, along with our
victory, we must cheer for
another team. The key to
the Pirates' Liberty Bowl
hopes is the Tennessee
We will need a
Tennessee victory this
Saturday and a win at our
final regular season game at
Memphis to ensure a spot in
the Liberty Bowl. If we gain
the opportunity, we may be
able to test our mettle in
front of an international
audience on Dec. 31.
We need everyone's
support at Dowdy-Ficklen
this weekend. Along with
the otherteam's opposition,
the Pirates have been beset
by an injurious season. Top
players, including wide
receiver Mitchell Galloway,
have been sidelined for long
periods often because of
Don't allow the other
team or our own injuries
preclude us from the victory
we deserve. All players,
especially those backup
players filling the big shoes
of starters, need fan support
to help rally them. This is a
chance for ECU to spread
their reputation far and wide
on the national circuit.
Besides, it is the last home
game. Whatmoreofanexcuse

have a good time while

Killer of children should receive no mercy
By Angela McCullers
Tens of thousands of children
are severely battered or killed in
the United States every year. The
prevalence of child abuse in the
modern world is not only
puzzling, it is shocking.
To explain it, many of us tell
ourselves that there are "animals"
among us, for only animals would
be capable of such atrocities.
Violence against children has been
manifested in every conceivable
manner. What Susan Smith did to
her two small sons is a good
example of animalistic behavior.
How can she live with herself
on a day-to-day basis knowing
that she has taken her children
lives? All children are innocent in
God's eyes. Susan Smith's actions
can not be justified or explained.
She is, simply, a cold-blooded
Not only did she kill her
children, but she went on national
television accusing someone else
of the crime that she committed If
someone else was arrested and
convicted for this horrific crime
do you think she would have came
forward? I do not think so.
She told the media that a black
man did it, a lie she knew that
many members in society would
be more than willing to believe.
It is a rare day when there is
good news about the lives of
black men. Countless articles
tell us that black men are
involved in criminal acts
against society. People of all
races our put behind bars for a
crime that they did not commit.
My heart goes out to the
father of those two little boys.
Their life was over before they
could begin to live.
It is truly sad that our.
society is made up of people,
like Susan Smith. People like
Susan Smith must be stopped
before they have the
opportunity to kill.
I find it hard to believe that.
up until now she was the
average, loving and caring
mother that she was portrayed
to be, until she admitted to
killing her children. We will
never know of all the things '
those two little boys suffered in
her home.
I can not bring myself to
show any sympathy for her at
all.Shecommitted one of the worst
sins I can think of�murder.
Letters to the Editor-
Foreman proves he is a champion
A friend and 1 watched the
boxing heavyweight
championship fight lastSaturday
night on HBO. In it, the 45-year-
old George Foreman, whom
many claim is just a con man and
an on-going joke in the sport of
boxing, sought to reclaim the
championship title that he lost
24 years ago, in 1973,a to the
legendary Mohammed Ali. I've
seen tapes of that fight. I was
only three years old when it
Ali made Foreman look
terrible, he destroyed him, and
after the fight Foreman retired,
slipping back into the
woodwork ot society, becoming
obese on junk food and
inactivity, convinced that he
was a loser. He was finished in
the sport of boxing and finished
in life for all he cared.
When Foreman announced
that he was coming out
retirement a few years ago, it
was more of a joke than
anything else to those, like
myself, who keep track of the
sport. I admit that I was one of
his detractors as well. I
thought the overweight, too-
old Foreman was going to
get killed, and that, for the
most part, he deserved to.
1 felt that, like so many other
aged champions, he was just
trying to climb back into the
ring and take a dive after the
first few rounds for that one last
paycheck to keep him out of the
red. Believe me, I now stand
When he first came out of
retirement, Foreman told the
press that he had received a
message from God telling him to
get back into the sport, get back
into shape, and begin the quest
to reclaim the championship
that he had lost so many years
ago, and to do it in God's
name, and that God would aid
him and give him strength in
his quest. No one else believed
that it could possibly be done.
It was an unprecedented
attempt and almost laughably
unbelievable at Foreman's
age. The oldest former boxing
champion to reclaim the
heavyweight title was Jersey
Joe Walcott at age 36. Foreman,
however, believed, and he has
now done what the rest of the
world almost unanimously
called completely impossible.
The fight itself was really
an amazing thing to watch.
The 45-year-old Foreman was
matched against the current
champion, 24-year-old
Michael Moorer, young
enough to be Foreman's son
and, although a mediocre
champion, still a quick,
muscular and deadly boxer.
Foreman was slow, and at
250 pounds still had some
spare tire around the waist,
yet as is his custom, he refused
to sit down in his corner
between rounds, and he kept
slowly coming, taking punch
after punch from the younger
champion but always moving
slowly forward and throwing
huge sledgehammer punches
of his own.
He was very obviously
losing round after round of
the fight, and as the fight
continued, he got slower and
received more damage to his
face and body from the young
champ. Even I had given up
At ten rounds it just
seemed like Foreman was
desperately lost. There wasn't
a thing he could possibly do
to pull the fight out except
knock the champion out, and
that seemed more and more
hopeless as the fight wore on
and Foreman wore down.
Suddenly, in the tenth
round, out of nowhere, Moorer
caught a hook to the face and
seemed to stumble, then
caught another left to the jaw
that must have felt like a 1955
Cadillac, and down he went,
eyes staring vacantly up into
outer space, flat on his back
on the canvas. My friend and I
were on our feet, completely
by Patrick Hinson
Moorer didn't get up; the
ref counted him out with ten
Foreman did it, and when
we looked back at the fight, we
watched him give a look to
Heaven, and then he was down
on his knees in the neutral
corner, giving thanks. Many
will still think that Foreman is
only champion because there
are no real champions left in
the sport of boxing at the
present time.
Many say Mike Tyson, for
example, would probably
destroy Foreman in a few
seconds, but then again Mike
Tyson is also a convicted rapist
and in prison where he belongs.
I don't care what people say,
with the friends George
Foreman seems to have in his
corner, he could probably have
beaten Tyson too.
He has dared to dream the
impossible dream, as he sang
before the fight, to fight the
unbeatable foe, to bear with
unbearable sorrow, all of which
George Foreman seems to have
done, and he has come back
out, finally, on top.
We may have the oldest,
slowest, fattest boxing
champion in the history of the
sport right now, but 1 think none
could deserve the title more
than he does, and none could
have worked as hard for it nor
come as far.
When I used to box, there
was quote on the wall of our
gym that said, in short, "Its the
fighter who will always go one
more round that can never lose.
When things look bad, as
they tend to do, you've got to
go one more round
Thai kind of says something
about life in general too, doesn't
it? When no one else will believe
in you, you've got to believe in
yourself, and you've got to dig
in and fight one more round. I
know one person who seems to
have just proven that theory to
all of us.
To the Editor:
Sports fans have been terribly disappointed
this year. First the baseball season ended without
a World Series and then the NHL locked the
players out. Luckily, the NBA was able to work
out a deal.
Fans have missed out on the fall classic and
professional hockey. But the real losers are those
who depend on professional sports for their live-
lihoods. Those who sell the fans food, give them
shelter, provide parking � the average blue-col-
lar worker who prefers to earn his money instead
of holding his hand out for a welfare check.
Greed has blinded both the players and the
owners. For Americans, the owners' and players'
self-centered attitudes go far beyond the mere loss
of entertainment. Because of the strike, many of
these hard working families will have to struggle to
get by the holiday season. But those greedy owners
and players don't give a darn.

I am writing this letter in sheer disgust toward
a few of the authoritative members of this campus.
Last night, I and a few friends of mine were treated
like common criminals while entering a residence
hall here on campus. I know it was Halloween, but
it is a security guard and RA's job to prevent
trouble, not randomly select someone and start
My friend is a resident of this hall and 1 was his
guest. I was simply trying to retrieve some text
books and other study materials when we were
crudely paraded through this hall like the catch of
the day. I couldn't help but feel the guard and RA
had a sick sense of amour-propre in "finally"
making a situation out of nothing at all. While

desperately trying to elucidate my presence at that
particular resident hall, the RA responded,
pedantically: "You are giving me a headache
Thus prompting me to write this letter for it became, ;
clear and evident to me that I was trying to
communicate rationally with an obtuse, egoist
teenager. I am 24 years old coming back to college after
spending three years in the worlds intense work force
so I want to be spoken to with respect. This whole
incident was totally avoidable if the aforementioned
guard and RA had any common sense, responsibility,
judgment and just plain intelligence.

To the Editor:
A recent columnist in The East Carolinian
questioned the non-commercial nature of "under-
writing acknowledgements" (U As) being aired on
By 1979-80, the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) had realized that non-com-
mercial stations were folding, and fast. The FCC
ruled that non-commercial stations could expand
the scope of their underwritingacknowledgements
beyond name-and-address, to include a listing of
any products, brand names, and services which
the donating business offered.
Restrictions remained on the "call to action
encouraging the listener to a particular action
(e.g "Stop by "X" today). Also still illegal were

Listeners will also find that WZMB's UAs
lack background music and usual length of 30
seconds � to further distance our UAs from regu-
lar commercials (Spots about WZMB showspro-
motions do not fall in this category).
True, a station is not forced to air these UAs,
and neither is a station forced to accept donations
Consider the following, though.
Many Greenville businesses are willing to
support WZMB, but most want at least a little
exposure in return. It's a two-way street. ,
ECU provides (literally) WZMB with a bud-
get which includes limited equipment replacement,
allowing the station to operate through most of the
calendar year; if the station wants to give away
prizes, or purchase more technical improve-
ments the station is on its own.
For most listeners, it's a fair enough trade

The East Carolinian
Electric dragons live for ECU professor
Brad Rice
Staff Writer
Dr. Roger Schlobin, an English
professor from Purdue who is
teaching at ECU for a year, has
just released his first novel. The
story is a fantasy, and possibly
stepping on the boundaries of
fantastic science fiction.
By definition, fantasy litera-
ture concerns occurrences that
are impossible and illogical, yet
the imagination allows the reader
to express and symbolize them.
Schlobin's novel is titled Fire
and Fur: The Last Sorcerer Dragon.
But there's one major difference
between Schlobin's novel and al-
most every other novel ever writ-
ten: it's not in print, but on com-
puter disk.
"I think it's a good way to get
a book before millions of poten-
tial readers Schlobin said.
It also costs much less than
hard cover novels. On a com-
puter network, one can down-
load up to 20 chapters for free.
The technology includes a fea-
ture called "Softlock" which re-
tains the concluding chapter or
chapters. The reader then buys a
password for $7.95 that gives
himher the final segment of the
The story takes place in the
Gobi desert in a time before hu-
mans existed and the earth was
ruled by cats and dragons. The
dragons once had a band of sor-
cerers that protected them from
evil, but they have all become
lazy and apathetic and are un-
able to stand up against their
ancient enemies, the Azghun
Demons. The main character of
the story, Ao Rue, is the only
remaining dragon whose sorcery
is strong enough to withstand
the power of the demons (hence,
the title of the novel). He is con-
sidered a social misfit, young and
immature, yet he is the only one
who can save all of dragonkind.
Although he does not have to
fight the battles completely alone,
he is assisted by a silver-mack-
erel tabby named Mei-chou.
Thematically, the story con-
cerns the downfall of the Ameri-
can culture today. It gives a nihil-
istic view of society, which basi-
cally states that good guys finish
last. It also draws upon ancient
Chinese mythology throughout
the text. Ao Rue is the ancient
Chinese title for "King of Sad-

Costner and Wood wage a complex War
This tree fort becomes the main object of contention in The War,
screened as a sneak preview in Hendrix Theater last week
Ike Shibley
Staff Writer
The most recent sneak preview
shown on campus, The War,
opened at Hendrix Theatre two
days prior to its national release
on November 4. The film commit-
tee deserves accolades for bring-
ing sneak previews to campus be-
cause they allow students an op-
portunity to see a film prior to the
rest of the country. The feeling is
akin to having the only Tcnka
truck on the block or being the
only kid with the newest style of
Barbie. No matter what the film, a
sneak preview excites a certain
euphoria in the viewer. Hopefully
with the positive response given
to The War, the film committee
will be able to bring many more
sneaks to campus.
Usually during a sneak preview
the audience mumbles, hoots,
yells and generally acts boister-
ous throughout the film. Action
and horror films prove virtually
unwatchable in such an environ-
ment unless one concedes to join
in the hollering. Much to the credit
of The War, the nearly full theater
was mercifully quiet. The students
and staffwatching the film quickly
got pulled into the power of the
The War of the title refers to
many battles. The main war af-
fecting Stephen Simmons (Kevin
Costner) was the one fought in
Vietnam. Stephen still suffers hor-
ribly from a traumatic experience
in the war in which he watched a
friend die. Much like the horror
affecting Sophie in Sophie's Choice,
Stephen's entire life has been
transformed by a decision he
made on the battlefield. Stephen's
family struggles to survive while
Stephen battles his personal de-
mons both in and out of mental
institutions. Stephen's wife Lois
(Mare Winningham) works two
jobs just to make ends meet.
Stephen loves his family dearly
and battles with himself�another
warto pull himself together, so
he can pull the family together.
Another war occurs with
Stephen's children, Stu (Elijah
Wood) and Lidia (Lexi Randall).
Stu and his two friends battle Lidia
and her two friends for control
over a tree house that they both
want to build. Soon the boys put
aside their differences with the
girls to fight an even larger war
with a clan of misfit children, the
Lipnickis, who are abused by a
drunken father. The Lipnickis ter-
rorize Stu and his buddies by beat-
ing them up when they are on
their property and generally ter-
rorizing them at any other time.
Another war being fought by
Lidia occurs in the classroom
where a racist teacher forces all
the black students to sit in the
back of the class. Lidia fiercely
opposes the teacher and eventu-
ally wins ground in an ongoing

The second album from North
Carolina's own Buzzoven is titled
Sore, and it will leave your ears
feeling just that way. Their sound
combines punk, noise and thrash,
which leaves them with an angry
Death Metal effort falling nothing
short of audio violence. Buzzoven
is disappointed with life and they
want everyone else who can relate
to listen. They've had a cult follow-
ing for over four years, but with
this latest effort, Sore, they wish to
expand their mutual hatred abroad.
The album's sound quality and
production leave a lot to be desi red,
but if you're a true Death Metal fan,
it sounds just right. Kirk, the band
member listed as the guitar player
insulter, has a screeching voice that
parallels John Tardy of Obituary.
Tardy he's not, but his technique
and word pronunciation run on
parallel planes. His voice is defi-
nitely unforgettable and almost evil.

Usually, just hearing the term
"concept album" is enough to
make me retch. A sad relic of '70s
arena rock, few concept albums
ever worked and even fewer were
very entertaining. I had dismissed
the form completHy.
Then along comes the Frank
Spencer Quartet and their Mutant
Dog (A Concept Album). Damn
them. This is one of the most re-
freshing discs I've heard in quite
some time. Unlike most rock
groups, this band isn't weighted
down by musical styles and their
own lack of originality. They jump
quite happily from jazz to pop to
rock and occasionally to heavy
metal. Influences apparent on the
album range from Frank Zappa to
Tom Waits to Led Zeppelin to the
Beatles to They Might be Giants to
Monty Python.
If you can't imagine such an
eclectic mix, don't worry. Mutant
Dog itself more than makes things
clear; it's just as quirky as the band
that made it. It's a collection of
songs, comedy, and sound bites
culled from such diverse sources
as Scooby Doo, old Beatles inter-
views, and recordings from the
1950s touting the great technologi-
cal advancements of stereo sound.
The disc runs 75 minutes, and con-
tains 71 separate tracks, some last-
ing only seven seconds.
With a mostly unconnected
group of songs, the "concept" on
Mutant Dog is pretty difficult to
grasp. The disc is supposedly about
evil musical scientist Dr.
Finklesteinberg and his creation,
the part-sheep-part-dog-part-
shopping-cart Mutant Dog of the
title. The disc's liner card even fea-
tures an unreadable tombstone
supposedly marking Dr.

story of Mutant Dog's creation. Of

course, most of the tracks that seem
to deal with the good doctor and
his bizarrecreation are under thirty
seconds long, and the rest of the
album is pretty random.
For instance, the first full song
on Mutant Dog is called "The At-
tack of the Green Martian (From
Planet One) This jazzy track fea-
tures a gravely voice (presumably
that of the Martian) that works in
counterpoint to the smoother lead
vocal. It also has little or nothing to
do with Dr. Finklesteinberg and,
thus, the album's concept.
But that's okay. All it takes is
one look at the long song list to
show that the Quartet didn't actu-
ally intend to make a real concept
album in the first place. With songs
like "Crystal Cave of the Vulcan
Princess" (which is 10 seconds
long), it's pretty obvious these guys
are poking some serious fun at the
bloated, pretentious habits of the
concept albums of the '70s. Those
albums often tried to find deep
meaning in goofy fantasy concepts,
but usually only sounded like bad
Tolkien. I thought Rush's "By-Tor
and the Snow Dog" (from their Fly
By Night album) was cool when I
was 16, but now I know better.
At any rate, the Frank Spencer
Quartet has put together a fine and
entertaining album here, regard-
less of the concept question I ospt-

about the formation of the band.
Also entertaining is the weird
Beatles riff they pull off in the

a nice bit of comedy in the Monty

around some old British guv dis-
cussing his memories of the Beatles.

The East Carolinian 9
From p. 7
Amid all the war are the hu-
man relationships that help any
person survive in times of
struggle. Love abounds in The
War and the underlying message,
surrounded by and confused
with many other messages, is that
love provides the true meaning
of life. A life without love is a life
not lived. Love eventually helps
win all the personal wars fought
in this film. The many vignettes
that appear in The War all have
love as their unifying theme.
Directed by John Avnet, The
War captures the feel of a poor
Southern family struggling to
keep love alive. Like the director's
Fried Green Tomatoes, the story in
The War is told episodically. The
fabric of the film never gets tightly
woven. Avnet does a remarkable
job of creating the desired mood
of the film but screenwriter Kathy
McWorter needed to ease up on
the heavy-handedness of each
Rather than easing along, The
War tells a moving story, allows
it to climax and then begins anew.
The film may have had more of
an impact had Avnet and
McWorter allowed the story to
gradually unfold without so many
melodramatic moments. The War
tires the viewer because of all the
different stories being told, each
with several scenes of dramatic
Still, The War manages to affect
the viewer because the characters,
even within the close confines of
the script, manage to become
three-dimensional. Much of the
credit for these characters coming
to life belongs to the actors.
Kevin Costner has repeatedly
defied Hollywood convention by
refusing to return to the heroic
roles that made him famous. Just
as he defied Hollywood logic by
making two baseball movies in a
row, Bull Durham followed by Field
of Dreams, he seems to sneer at
those who would direct his ca-
reer. Costner has chosen complex
roles that have shown his range as
an actor. He perfectly fits thecrimi-
nal, Butch, whom he played in the
high quality, but little seen, A Per-
fect World. Now he plays a bewil-
dered father trying to pick up the
pieces of his life. Costner allows
his dignity to be seen slowly while
playing the role with quiet
From p. 7
The two children do a remark-
able job also. Elijah Wood has
made several films already � The
Good Son, Radio Flyer and North �
and will probably make many
more. He has a quiet confidence
that is the antithesis of the cocky
bravado displayed by Macauly
Culkin. Wood knows how to sum-
mon the requisite emotions for
any scene without looking un-
natural. Lexi Randall is a wonder
in The War. 1 could not find any-
thing else in which she has ap-
peared, but she deserves to get
more roles. Her "Lidia" steals the
film. Lidia narrates the events of
The War and plays a central role in
the film. Her scenes surpass most
others in The War for sheer power,
most of that power emanating
from her small form. She perfectly
fits the confused but stubborn
adolescent struggling to become
an adult.
The War provides much emo-
tion and does a great job of cap-
turing an era. Though far from
perfect, The War does tell a poi-
gnant tale with a combination of
grace and grit.
On a scale of one to ten, The War
rates a seven.

The four members are seriously
angry guys, and you can feel it
when listening to their album. Their
lyrics scream of pain, loss, betrayal
and fear. The most notable song on
Sore is "Broken This song makes
you feel so mad that you want to do
something about it. Through the
lyrics of the song you feel as though
you've been swept away, like
yesterday's trash, into an aban-
doned building with nothing left
but you and your anger. The best
line that represents that is, "your
sickness- done emotions- why, it
gets to me- relax frail me- teacher,

Buzzoven's name, like their
music, is best described as some-
thing simple turned confusing and
Sore is a classic example of a raw
Death Metal album that makes
love, passion destroys itself and
its possessors as each character
tries to find fulfillment in a des-
tiny beyond his control.
The major conflict of the play
lies not only in the rivalry which
exists between families but also
in the rivalry of two men for a
woman torn between her desire
for stability and her need for pas-
sion. One of the most interesting
aspects of the play is the lack of
character names. Only one char-
acter in the play, Leonardo Felix,
has a name. The rest are titled bv
their position in life, such as
Mother, Bridegroom, Bide and
Father-in-law. In this way Garcia
Lorca leads the play up to its
final conclusion with Leonardo's
denial of tradition and refusal
to accept the loss of his love.
The ironic nature of this play
is shown from the very begin-
ning, with the title. Literally
translated, "Wedding of Blood"
is almost gruesomely prophetic.
While a wedding usually stands
for happiness, joy and families
joined in love and celebration,
this 'blood wedding' is a culmi-
nation of years of violence, death
and destruction.
The play promises to be a
challenge for both the actors
and the audience. Because it
was translated from the Span-
ish, a lot of the written imag-
ery has been lost. The actors
will have to work hard to help
the audience visualize what
was lost in translation. How-
ever, the ECU Playhouse has
always readily accepted such

about this play is that we have
to work in a language it's not
written in. And poetry is so

The East Carolinian
ECU ruggers outslug UNC Tarheels, win 26-23
William W. Ellis
Staff Writer
On Saturday, ECU's ruggers
defeated UNC-Chapel Hill 26-23
in a slugfest to win the North
Carolina Collegiate champion-
ship. In doing so, they won a
unique Collegiate Triple Crown,
because ECU won the Division I
and Division II collegiate cham-
pionships in the spring and the
matrix championship in the fall.
The game started well for ECU.
Five minutes after kickotf, Jay-
Keller forced the ball loose, and it
popped up for Steve Flippen to
carry 40 meters to a try between
the posts. After Opie Moss kicked
the conversion, ECU was up 7-0.
A pattern started immediately af-
terward, because Carolina got a
penalty goal by Jamie Whittle,
making it 7-3.
At the 21st minute, Dennis
McLane took on the ball from a
ruck and scored from 50 meters
out. Again Moss converted, and
again Whittle quickly kicked a
Carolina penalty to make it 14-6.
Just before the half, John Hogan
crashed over from a lineout when
Carolina make a capitol error on
the throw-in. The ball seemed to
be thrown to Hogan instead of
the Carolina player and he sim-
plv dove over the line.
Had the first half ended there,
the Pirates might have had the
game in hand, but in the 39th
minute, Whittle again kicked his
third penalty to make it 19-9 at
the half. This penalty gave Caro-
lina a slight edge in momentum
when the match resumed. Al-
though Pirate fans felt the referee
was giving away the match, Caro-
lina had two tries called back and
most penalties seemed deserved.
The second half saw less scor-
ing but greater intensity. After a
long spell, which saw play move
up and down the field with nei-
ther side achieving advantage,
ECU put a great deal of pressure
on Carolina's back line. Forced to
play defense in front of their goal,
the Tarheels made a series of mis-
takes. At 28 minutes, ECU's Dave
Johnson fell on a loose ball.
When Moss converted, the Pi-
rates had a 26-9 lead. Then the
pressure began. Carolina contin-
ued to attack and ECU was
stretched to continue their de-
fense. At 36 minutes, Galahad
Clark scored a try converted by
Whittle, ECU 26, Carolina 16.
Then, in injury time, Carolina got
a try from Geoff Pike, that Whittle
converted to make it 27-23.
Time ran out four minutes
later, with the Pirates clinging
desperately to their lead by clear-
ing the ball away from their end
at everv opportunity.
The game took two forms. The
first half was fairly open with
Carolina playing kick and chase
and ECU attacking with forward
rushes. The second half was in-
tense, in-your-face combat for the
ball, with sides going after both
ball and opponents with equal
On several occasions, the
thumps of boots and fists strik-
ing players could be heard above
the normal sounds of ruck and
As time wore on and players
became more tired, ECU began
to unravel. ECU has always had
trouble with Carolina in the fall
and as Whittle and Clark led the
Tarheels back, the Pirates began
to draw penalties.
They more they struggled, the
more penalties seemed to come
their way, and the Pirates were
Clubs gain
(RS) � With intercollegiate
and professional athletes mak-
ing most of the headlines these
days, it's comforting to know
the competitive spirit is still alive
without all the "fringe benefits"
of high salaries, big cars and fans.
Speaking of fans, most stu-
dents on campus have never
even heard of the members of 16
active-sport clubs on ECU's cam-
pus. Our own Club Sport Pro-
gram has been honored with
state, regional and national titles.
This year's Club Sport pro-
gram offers a wide variety of
both competitive and recre-
ational clubs. Aside from the fun
and sweat that's sure to come
out of involvement, these activi-
ties will undoubtedly fine tune a
sense of leadership, communi-
cation and team work skills that
always make for greater spirit.
These extracurricular outlets
have attracted a number of stu-
dents with similar interests and
goals. Keesha Kems took up
Goju Shorin Karate four years
ago, on a dare. She has found
herself with a little more than a
knowledgeof self-defense. "This
club is a big family, of sorts. We
sha many other facets of life
out ie the classroom, be it tail-
gating, movie-going or just
hanging out. It's good fun
Kems said.
Glancing at the list of these
year-round programs, one will
quickly notice eight to be more
of a recreational nature. Though
not as aggressive and competi-
tive as the team sports, these
programs can definitely evolve
into an entire lifestyle whose
growth can be continuously
sharpened far after college life.
Five of these fall under the broad
category of the martial arts.

phasis on reducing everyday

Padgett impacts Pirate soccer team
Jody Jones
Staff Writer
Most college soccer players start
playing the game at a very young
age. Chris Padgett is no exception.
He has been playing since his dad
first introduced the game to him
when he was only five years old.
Padgett is from the small town of
Swansboro, NC, where he attended
Swansboro High School.
Padgett played on the
Swansboro varsity soccer team for
four years, and all four years his
team played for the state 2-A soccer
championship. They won the title
once during his Swansboro tenure,
during Padgett's sophomore year.
Although his team would not win
another state championship while
he was in high school, Chris would
go on to have outstanding junior
and senior seasons. He was named
to the All-Coastal Plains confer-
out of high school, Padgett was re-
cruited by Barton, Campbell, Coastal
Carolina and ECU.
"I was pretty set on going to

He has started every game since
coming to East Carolina, a streak of
34 straight games. Last season, he
ranked third on the team in scor-
ing, and this season leads the
Pirates with 13 points (six goals,
and one assist).
The games-played steak al-
most ended against Old Domin-
ion. During the game, Chris
broke two of his toes and did not
know if he would be able to play
the next game. After talking it
over with the trainers and Coach
Carey, Padgett got to start. It ap-
peared the injury had little affect
on him, a - he scored two goals in
the game.
"I wanted to be part of an era
where the program got stron-
ger he said. "Going to all these
different schools to play is great,

The women's volleyball pro-
gram at East Carolina has gone
through several changes this
year, and those can be seen
through the improved play of
the team.
One player that has in-
creased her productivity and
level of play is junior middle
hitter Tara Venn.
In three different games this
season, the Lady Pirates have
gone to Venn for more than her
dependability, but her inspira
tion. In a game against
Campbell, Venn, who elevated
her level of play to score a per-
sonal-best nine kills, helped the
Lady Pirates overcome a late
Camel rally.
"I was recruited to block,

said Venn.
She is currently tied for fourth

than during last year.

There are many clubs that ECU students can participate in
during their spare time, including Tae Kwon Do and Karate.
(AP) � Whatever other hare-
brained schemes George Foreman's
stunning upset is bound to inspire,
a seniors' boxing tour apparently
won't be one of them.
Thank heaven for small favors.
Now George should do himself a
favor and get out while he is still
healthy and on top.
"If Larry Holmes and George
Foreman ever got into the ring to-
gether Foreman joked over the
weekend, "the smell of Ben Gay
would be so great that nobody would
want a ringside seat
When Foreman first raised the
possibility of a fight between 45-
year-olds � it would have to be
billed something like "When George
Met Larry" � he did so strictly in
the spirit of poking fun at himself.
He doesn't like Holmes, doesn't
want to fight him, and after drop-
ping 26-year-old Michael Moorer
with a thundering right hand Satur-
day night to reclaim a title he owned
two decades earlier, doesn't have to
do anything he doesn't want.
Though George wouldn't be any
more specific about whether he will
fight again, he had no trouble re-
membering what he does even bet-
ter than box � which is telling jokes.
It was,after all,still a Saturday night,
he still had an audience, the adrena-
line was still flowing and he was on
a roll. So on he went:

in boxing for the moment is that
whatever George wants, George
will get. And while no one would
deny him the opportunity to cash
in on what was one of the grand-
est triumphs in sporting memory,
the debate comes down to whether
he should do it inside the ring or

who was in Moorer's camp for the
fight, "I'd tell him, 'Milk this for all

Not so fast, said Bob Arum, the
promoter who made Foreman's im-
possible dream come true once and
thinks he could do so again. Assum-
ing that George's dream is to be even
richer than he is (and coincidentally,
to enrich Arum in the bargain).

Arum's plan is George using his

popularity to break the political ties
that are strangling boxing.
"When something cataclysmic like
this happens, everybody rethinks
their positions Arum said. "People
might be willing to take a risk and
have fights the way we used to, con-
tender vs. contender
According to Arum, while thecon-
tenders were off bearing each other's
brains out, George would take only
those fights the public was clamor-
ing for. He would be immune to the
television cartel and the alphabet-
soup organizations that extort hefty
fees to sanction sham contests. He
could pick his way through the
minefield of rising heavyweights �
or avoid it altogether � hanging on
long enough to fight Mike Tyson
when the crown-prince-in-exile gets
out of an Indiana state prison next
That, as Arum envisions it and
certainly intends topromote it, would
be the "fight to end all fights Then,
with its popularity intact and a hand-
ful of recognizable contenders in the
wings, boxing would go forward
from that cataclysmic event to an-
other golden age.
The problem with that scenario is
that it just puts off solving for several
more months what can be solved
right now. At the moment, boxing
needs less mega-fights rather than
more; big purses encourage fighters
not to fight too often, which in rum
keeps them from being recognizable.
George is recognizable enough.
Rather than an aging colossus stand-
ing astride the sport for a few more
months, what boxing needs right
away is a tournament that matches
the handful of legitimate young
heavyweights already outrhere. And
it can't happen soon enough.
"George has bought us all a little
time. But the longer he hangs on, the
longer boxing is living in the past
Duva said.

hurry, turn some heads and drum up

Scooty Carey is preparing to
take his 4-13-1 Pirates to
Wiliamsburg, Va. for this
year's annual Colonial Athletic
Association Tournament.
ECU will face the Dukes of
James Madison on Thursday,
November 10 at 12 noon. These
two teams are quite familiar
with each other as the Pirates
faced JMU in the season finale
only three days ago in a 5-1

Strangely enough, ECU was
paired with James Madison in
the first round of the last year's
tournament as well. JMU out-
shot the Pirates 21-6 in route to
a 3-0 shutout. The Dukes went
on to win the tournament and
advanced to the NCAA's.
This year's ECU team is best
described as youthful. Over 50
percent of the squad's total
point production has come
from either sophomores or
freshmen. 2nd year player

In truth, honor in the B
match should go to the

spite their missing players.
They also maintained a sense
of humor about their fate.
Evened up in the second half,
they threatened repeatedly but
opted to run the ball instead of
kicking penalties that would
have put them on the
scoreboard. ECU turned them
back every time.
ECU will have to make some
major adjustments to over-
come their penalty plagued
style. Now in the final 64, the
Pirates will only encounter
stronger and stronger teams
with more speed, skill and ex-
perience than typical in the
North Carolina Rugby Union.
ECU must eliminate the pen-
alties and play with more poise
and confidence to advance fur-
ther toward the national cham-
pionship. This is not as diffi-
cult as it seems as most penal-
ties were drawn from overly
aggressive play to obtain the
ball (falling over the ball, or
going offside) or intimidate at-
tacking ball carriers (high, or
dangerous tackling).
More attention to basics can
eliminate these errors now that
the Pirates have an obtainable
goal in their future.
The Pirates are at home next
weekend against Georgia Tech.
The next match determines fi-
nal seedings for Group III in
Annapolis on Nov. 19. The East
Carolina-Georgia Tech match
will be played at noon on Sun-
day, Nov. 13, due to a home

Robesonville was recruited last
year to fill the vacuum left by
graduating quarterback Jeff Blake,
who recently started for the Cin-
cinnati Bengals and led them to a
near-upset of the Dallas Cowboys
last month.
Crandell was starting quarter-
back at Roanoke High School for
his last three years there, and he
played 'both ways' during his jun-
ior and senior years. The heaviest
recruiting offers came from South
Carolina, North Carolina, and East
Carolina; everyone wanted to re-

the ball � except ECU.
"That's the main reason I
came here Crandell said. Though
he was red-shirted as a freshman,
he still got the starting quarterback
nod by at least the second game of
the 1993 season, the Central
Florida game � in which one play
is still quite vivid in his mind.

factor in ECU's scoring on field

A love for football flows

uncle Bill going on play in the

Additionally, his younger brother
Nicky, a high school senior, plays

and is being recruited by

Crabtree came to
Greenville from Triton High
School (Erwin, N.C.), where he
won letters in three sports. On the
gridiron, Crabtree played
quarterback, linebacker and
punter for the Hawks, twice
earning All-Area and All-

as a senior, Crabtree was named
the team's MVP and given the

to wear the Pirates' purple and
gold were simple.

He was redshirted during
the 1992 season, and worked
exclusively as a punter. During the
'93 campaign, Crabtree spent
most of the year backing up Bill
Wilson, until he was given the
starting nod against
Cincinnati (L, 14-34)
in the final game of the
year. Crabtree had five
punts (39.8 average),
with a long punt of 47
yards in the loss.

Prior to the
season, All-Maryland
freshman punter Matt Levine was
recruited by the Pirate coaching
staff, and after fall practice,
Crabtree dropped to 2 on the
ECU depth chart at the position.
"My job right now is to
hold, but stay ready to punt
Crabtree said. "If Matt struggles
or gets hurt, then I have to be
ready to step in. I'm like '911
I'm always on call
"Holding is one of those
jobs where you get no glamour or
glory, but everyone expects you to
do your job right he said. "No

golf and tennis) and spending time

Crabtree is pleased with
how the Pirates are doing this
season, but has stayed level-
headed and modest about their
past successes and Saturday's
matchup against Division I-AA
opponent Central Florida.
"We are currently 5-4 and
have lost to four nationally-ranked
teams by a total of just 30 points.
It's definitely a turnaround from
2-9 last year

expects us to win he said. "We
can't overlook them. Hopefully
we can knock them and Memphis

instead focusing on
their own personal lives. Academics
and family should be the student
body's main priorities, but supporting
your school is important as well. Our
fans need to show the Bowl scouts and
College Football Association that their
poor attendance at the Cincinnati
Homecoming game was a aberration,
and that ECU fans do support it's foot-
ball team.
Pirate Athletic Director Dave
Hart has made major contributions to
this school. Through his "Shared Vi
sions" campaign, ECU's endowments
have risen dramatically. Pirate Club
members Ron Dowdy and the Will-
iams family, have given millions of
dollars to refurbish and rebuild our
football and basketball facilities. All
of this fundraising and progress will
be for naught if our fans don't make
the kind of strong showing needed to
impress the Liberty Bowl Alliance.
"In November we have a ten-
dency for that last game for the crowd
to kind of dip Hart said. "We have
so much to play for, unlike some past
Novembers, and it would be a real
shame if we didn't have the same type
of numbers and the same enthusiasm
that we have had in prior games. I'd
like to make an appeal to our student
body from my position that they come
out Saturday and support the team
The circumstances surrounding
this Central Florida game are differ-
ent than the usual last home game of
the season for ECU the past few sea-
sons. Usually, the Pirates are out of
contention for any post-season play at
this point, but the Pirates (5-4) are
breathing down Memphis' (6-3) neck
for first place in die Liberty Bowl Al-
liance standings.
"Obviously, if we can finish
strong and get a win, and if we are for-
tunate enough for Tennessee to beat
Memphis Saturday, that would be
ideal Hart said. "They Memphis
played a great game against Ole Miss.
That was some comeback they made.
We are right on the verge of going to
the Liberty Bowl, so it would be a
shame to not have a representative
Memphis has to beat Tennessee
and ECU must beat the Tigers in Mem-
phis a week from Saturday to go to
the Liberty Bowl. The Pirates no
longer have control of their own des-
tiny. Even if the Tigers beat Tennessee
and lose to ECU they will still go to
the bowl because they would have one
more Division I-A win.

He began to have serious
doubts about coming to ECU after
not seeing any action defensively
against Temple.
"We were winning by a lot and
they didn't put me in Smith said.
"I started thinking about where I
should transfer to and that this
would be a wasted year. I wasn't
thinking straight
After meeting with the
coaches, Smith decided to stay.
"They told me to focus and
play under control Smith said. "I
didn' t look at it from their side. Now
I feel like they were right. I have to
accept their coaching and play the
way they want
A change of position was just
what Smith and the coaches needed.
After former NEO teammate Willie
Brookins went down with a knee
injury versus South Carolina, Smith
moved to linebacker.
"I moved to outside line-
backer two days before the Tech
game Smith said. "We didn't have
a pass rush without Willie, and they
needed someone to get to the quar-
terback. I decided to give it my best
'Smith's best was certainly
good enough in his role as desig-
nated sacker. "Danny Russ plays the
run, and 1 come in on 3rd down
Smith said. "I feel I can be a Derrick
Thomas or 'LT' type of player at this
position. I feel I have the tools to be
good. I can blitz well. This position
suits me well. It is really a big change
because I don't have to worry about
assignments, just rush and keep con-
During the Virginia Tech game,
quarterback Maurice DeShazo con-

very seldom did this happen with
Smith in the game.

Extra weight would help Smith
to be a complete player and eventu-
ally become a starter at outside

"I need to put on some weight
in the offseason Smith said. "Get up
to 235-240. Right now, I just use my
quickness, being a former DB. I am
quicker than the offensive linemen
and can make things happen. A lot of
people don't know me and think I'm
quiet. I don't go out much. After this
season, I want them to know about
my contributions on the football
So far this season, Smith has two
tackles for loss and a sack. Bigger
things are looming on the horizon for
him, and Smith can't wait.
"I will do anything to make it to
the next level because I have the abil-
ity Smith said. "I want everyone to
know I am pro material
Gaining a reputation for being
mean and nasty on the field is some-
thing Smith relishes.
"Most people don't shake my
hand after games Smith said.
"When I am on the field, I try to hurt
people. I want to knock the quarter-
back out. My instinct is to bring ev-
erything I can to the party. I have been
called a dirty player before. Back in
high school I used to pinch, bite and
hit way out of bounds. It is all out of
aggression. I am just an aggressive
person. This sometimes takes me to
levels that are uncalled for
Smith's favorite NFL team is the
Pittsburgh Steelers. He loves the
tough defensive tradition they started
in the 1970's that continues today.
"Jack Lambert is my idol

dirty. I'll hurt you to win a ballgame.

Logan said. "We made him an out-
side linebacker and he has great
quickness and is very strong. I am
glad to see him contributing and he
should help us down the road.
Jermaine comes in on 3rd down and
gives us a lift. Eventually, he could
start for us. I knew when we recruited
him that he was a big-time player, the
kind of guy we need to have out there
on defense
Recently, prior to the Auburn
game Smith suffered a ligament in-
jury to his elbow rendering him inac-
tive for that contest. He is expected
to be full-go versus Central Florida
and isn't concerned about the injury.
"My elbow hurts a little bit Smith
said. "That is all part of the game and
sometimes injuries happen
Smith's confidence is sky-high
right now as he is getting settled in to
his new position.

His sophomore season was even
better, as he led the Pirates in tackles
with 114, averaging nearly 13 tack-
les per game. Sportswriters began to
notice his performance, and named
him to the All-Independent team
Football News) and the All-Atlantic
Coast and HM All-American Teams
(Street & Smith's).
ECU defensive coordinator Paul
Jette, who doubles as inside line-
backer coach for the Pirates, proved
to be a change of pace for Libiano
from Babich.
"He's not the kind of guy to rant
and rave at you Libiano said. "He
isn't as vocal. He will pull you aside
and tell you what you did wrong and
how to improve. It is a good situation
for me right now. Babich meant well,
but I am at a level now where I don't
need to be screamed at. I have a lot of
respect for Coach Jette, and I am glad
to be playing for him
The change seems to be work-
ing well, as Libiano once again leads
the team in tackles with 112 (includ-
ing nine for losses), going into the
UCF game.
"I always try to build my abili-
ties and be a versatile player Libiano
said. "I just make plays. I slice away
and away until I get results.
"I like watching old films of
Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary and

His older brother is a walk-on

learned a lot from his example.
"He's on the scout team
Libiano said. "Those guys respect
him and appreciate the effort he
gives. I really look up to him, be-
cause he won't quit
Setting high goals has brought
Libiano to the pinnacle of success
both personally and team-wise.
"I want to be an All-American
Libiano said. "Academics are impor-
tant to me, too" Libiano said. "I want
to have something to fall back on if
football doesn't work out

"There will be a Liberty Bowl
scout there and we will be following
the Tennessee score closely Hart said.
"We will keep abreast of how that
game is going. There is a variety of
reasons to play for, and we would like
to maximize our chances
The wording of the Liberty Bowl
contract reads that the minimum re-
quirement to play is six Division I-A
wins. Boston College, Wisconsin, NC
State and North Carolina are all can-
didates to play Memphis or ECU on
New Year's Eve.
"The contract reads clearly and I
almost think I had misinterpreted it
Hart said. "If they win, they clinch the
bowl because of having more Div. I-
A wins. If they beat Tennessee, they
would have beaten three SEC teams
and would have really earned it
ECU could explore other venues
and possibilities for postseason play
but it would appear improbable.
"It would be slim at best, but still

defensive end Emil Ekiyor seriously
injured quarterback Marcus Crandell,
putting him out for the season. Crandell
suffered a dislocated and fractured
ankle that required reconstructive sur-
gery. He has made a complete recov-
ery and is playing even better than he
did prior to the injury.
Pirate fans were irate at Ekiyor
only being penalized for a personal
foul and not being ejected from the ball
game. Ekiyor was a underclassmen last
year but does not show up in UCF's
statistics, depth chart, or media guide.
Obviously, his departure from their
program does not reduce from the ill-
will that some feel about the incident.
Students and alumni were very upset
about what happened and are still talk-
ing about it.
"I don't think there will be any
negativity over what happened last
year Hart said. "I am sure that our
folks would like to see us play well
and like to see us win the game more
than usual, because of human nature.
I would certainly hope that there won't
be anything beyond that and I don't
anticipate that there would be. I don't
think there will be any lingering ill will
at all. It doesn't have anything to do
with this game
ECU's attendance, for the most
part, has been very impressive thus far
this year.
"We have a chance to set an all-
time attendance record Hart said.
'To do that, we need the same kind
of response from our students that we
usually receive. Our students are as
supportive as anyone. I understand in
years past we didn't have anything to
play for, and this is a really good foot-

A win this Saturday against
Central Florida is important, but the

come down to the last game of the
season between the two prime con-
tenders, ECU and Memphis.
Crandell missed it last year, and is
ready to do what it takes to get the
Pirates there this year.
"It would mean a lot to me
Crandell said. "Last year we were
thinking about a bowl game, and I
got hurt. We didn't get that chance,
but this year I've put a lot into it.
We've looked forward to going to a
bowl game all year, and we have a

very important for me, and I think
it's more important for our seniors
