ECU inks deal with ESPN
Minimum of eight
football games to
be shown over

ECU and ESPN Communica-
tions signed a multi-year television
agreement Tuesday that will assure
the Pirates of having national foot-
ball coverage, as well as select
women's athletic events during the
term of the contract, which starts
Mike Aresco, ESPN's director
of College Sports, and Dave Hart.
ECU'S director of Athletics, joined
forces at a Tuesday afternoon press
conference to make the announce-
"On the heels of last night's na-
tionally televised basketball game
on ESPN2, which was the first for
our basketball program Hart said,
"we are pleased today with what we
think is an exciting and significant
announcement relating to future
television exposure for our football
program, as well as a foundation
for additional broad-based visibilty
for ECU athletics on a national
Months of negotiations ended
with the agreement that will secure
the football program exposure into
the next decade.
ESPN and ESPN2 will televise
a minimum of eight Pirate home
football games over a five-year span,
starting in 1996.
As of 1996, ESPN will own all
rights to ECU home football games.
NBC's contract with Notre Dame in
football coverage is the only other
in the country similar to the ECU-
ESPN deal, for the number of
games and seasons.
The agreement would also sur-
vive if ECU joins a conference dur-
ing the term.
Whatever games ESPN does
noi choose to broadcast could be
shown by other networks, who
would have to negotiate with
As for regional exposure, such
as the Pirate Sports Network, ECU
would continue to broadcast above
and apart from the new agreement,
and could have four to six games
televised each season.
"We wanted to ensure that East
Carolina got the exposure it needed
in other forms Aresco said.
"Obviously we feel that our
commitment is a major one - we
are committing to at least one game
a year. On that basis, a regional

Controversy once again reigns
between the ECU cheerleaders and
the athletic department. After failing
to go to the national competition on
a paid-for basis last year, the ECU
cheerieading squad, although finish-
ing 15th in a recent national compe-
tition, failed once again to gain a paid-
for invite. They qualified, but will have
to pay their own way to the National
Cheerieading Championships in Or-
lando in May.
The problem is that the Univer-
sal Cheerieading Association (UCA).
which sponsors the event, will only
fund the top 10 teams that qualify.
The ECU cheerleaders feel the ath-
letic department should help send
them, since they did qualify for the
"We are extremely supportive of
our cheerleaders in what they accom-
plish here at ECU said Lee Work-
man ECU assistant athletics director
for tickets and promotions. "We try
to be fair in our policies and decisions
related to all areas of our athletic pro-
gram. Unfortunately we can't always
say 'yes The cheerleaders' primary
purpose at ECU is a student support
group for our athletic teams and an
ambassador for the University.
"I understand that the competi-
tion aspect is important to our cheer-
leaders, and we are proud that they
were ranked nationally
The NCAA does not recognize
cheerieading as an official sport,
therefore, no money is lequired to be
allotted to the program, and any
money given by the schools is up to
Interim Athletics Director Henry
Van Sant said a decision had not been
made about the national competition
because he had not yet received a re-
quest from the cheerleaders that they
wanted to go to the national competi-
"This is the first I've heard about
it said Van Sant. "I have not received
any type of request from the cheer-
leaders here at ECU
Chancellor Eakin was also un-
aware of the situation.
"I am in the dark about this situ-
ation so I cannot comment, but I am
sure I represent the whole ECU com-
munity in giving congratulations to
the cheerleaders on their 15th-ranked
finish in the national competition
he said. "1 have had the personal op-
portunity to see the cheerleaders
throughout the year, and they are a
great talent and credit to ECU
The athletic department, not un
der any NCAA regulations, does pay
for travel and lodging to all away foot-
ball and some basketball games, and
give the cheerleaders allotted
weightlifting time and regular use of
the sports medicine treatment.
"We allow one fundraising
project per year for our athletic teams.
The cheerleaders are usually given
two to help them out One is appear-
ance fees, and the second one is the
high school competition which they
hold in the spring. However, this
spring the cheerleaders are not hold-
ing the competition
Senior Pirate cheerleader David
Coates said that he feels the cheer-
leaders deserve a chance to prove
themselves on a national level, and
that the athletic department should
be proud to send them.

Movie sparks controversy
. . � .J - - Vw fivct fima
The movie A Reason To Believe
stirred up controversy last night, not
because of the language and nudity,
but because the plot, about date rape,
took place in a Greek setting.
Over 1,000 people showed up at
Hendrix Theater to view the movie,
but only about 800 were permitted to
stay due to seating capacity, said
Heather Zophy, health education co-
ordinator at Student Health Services.
Due to the large amount of students
who wanted to see the movie, it was
shown a second time for those who
were turned away the first time.
Immediately following the first
viewing, a panel discussion was avail-
able to answer questions regarding
the movie and the issues it addssed.

Greeks being stereotyped, but this

"On an average we are serving
about 35 (people a day, but the num-
bers are growing said Martha
Dawson, a kitchen coordinator.
The Greenville Soup Kitchen pro-
vides homeless and needy individuals
with a meal at no cost. The Soup
Kitchen is the only one of its kind in
Greenville. Another soup kitchen in
Greenville, located on Fifth Street,
operated for three years but was forced
to close in August of 1994.
The ECU Student Volunteer pro-
gram, under the direction of Judy
Baker, used to supply the
kitchen with a large number of volun-
teers. After the Soup Kitchen closed
in August, it was removed from the
program. Since being opened at a new
location and under new coordinators,
it has yet to be reinstated.
An organization of York Memo-
rial, headed by Dawson and Barbara
Taft, started by serving on Saturdays
but quickly found that was not enough.
"We felt we had to do something,
and the response was such that it
needed to be done daily Dawson said.
The Soup Kitchen runs entirely
from private donations, a fact that both
coordinators are particularly proud of.
Seven area churches are the source of
most of these contributions, along with
some help from sororities. Several of
the churches have a specified day. On
that particular day the church's team
of volunteers prepares and serves the
food, and cleans up afterward.
The organization has even
thought of transportation. York

That's what we wrestled with
The state Senate already has ap-
proved lifting the cap in September
1996. when the state is expected to
have enough prison beds to house
all its inmates. But Lemmond said
waiting that long would put 3,185
inmates on the streets on parole.
"We felt that the Sept. 1 date
approved by the Senate was essen-
tially smoke and mirrors in that it
repealed the prison cap after it was
no longer needed Lemmond said.
The proposal from Lemmond's
subcommittee would do much more
than just lift the prison cap on Janu-
ary 1. It also would allow private
prisons to operate in the state for
the first time, would allow contract-
ing with counties to build and oper-
ate facilities for the state, and would
loosen restrictions on the Depart-
ment of Correction for renting out-
of-state prison beds in emergencies.

would have to spend no additional
money next year on out-of-state rent-

The Correction Department
pays as little as $54 a day per pris-
oner in Oklahoma to a high of $78
a day in Rhode Island. Potential
prison operators have said they

The state now pays an average

Kudos to the entire Williams Arena crowd for their
never-ending support of the Pirates in a losing cause
on ESPN2 Monday evening. The national TV cover-
age may have slightly-restricted attendance and pre-
vented the game from being a sellout, but you wouldn't
have known it from the amount of crowd noise and
activity present throughout.
Although the top few rows of the Williams stands
were sprinkled with Pirate fans, all in the arena came
alive that evening, armed with ESPN signs and a de-
sire to show the nation the true spirit - Pirate style.
The Minges Maniacs came out in full force and
school spirit, easily discrediting claims by an overly
sensitive ECU "fan" (who labeled a certain group of
the student section as "absolute goons" and "want-to-
be Blue Devil fans" in the Feb. 9 edition of TEC.)
This group, centered between the two team
benches, have become the leaders of the Maniacs, and
should be commended for their efforts in trying to
make Williams arena as hostile as possible for the
opposition. If the refs (who, by the way, were horrible
on Monday night) aren't offended enough by their
actions to give them a tech, why should one of our
own raise a stink about it?
Pirate fever, after 10 home games, finally spread
throughout the rest of the coliseum, and made all the
difference. Head coach Eddie Payne, although ending
up with a tough loss, was able to gain the much talked
about "sixth man" -edge from the excellent fan sup-
port. Heck, even the people that paid for their tickets
were on their feet cheering the whole game.
The entire group of fans rocked visiting Old Do-
minion players and coaches (along with the aforemen-
tioned referees) with deafening cheers and chants,
while continually lifting the spirits of the purple and
gold throughout - what they are supposed to do, and
exactly why nationally-recognized student sections are
Simply put, it was louder in Williams Arena on
Monday than it has been for any other game this sea-
son. With Saturday's huge match-up with interstate
rival UNC-Wilmington looming on the horizon, the
fans need to come out strong and prove that Monday's
pep and spirit wasn't just a one time deal.

Traffic problems abound
The only major complaint I have
about Greenville, NC, is the traffic. I
moved here a little over a year and a
half ago and for the most part I've
enjoyed the town. Greenville is a nice,
quiet little town, maybe a little too
quiet occasionally but overall a pretty
friendly place. Unfortunately, the
friendly inhabitants of Greenville
can't drive. And I'm not talking about
just the year-round residents. ECU
students apparently acquire this de-
ficiency once they get in to town. (I,
of course, am immune.)
First let me ask a question: Is
no-one in this town ever in a hurry
to get anywhereThis is my first
experience living in a town where the
majority of people drive five to ten
miles below the speed limit Even
the Department of Motor Vehicles is
aware of this problem apparently.
When I went to get my North
Carolina driver's license there were
four questions related to minimum
speed limits and how driving too
slow can cause traffic accidents.
There was only one question about
exceeding the speed limit and that
was about going more than twenty
miles over the limit. Somehow I
doubt that is big concern here in

Another local traffic problem I
have encountered is the Stoplight
Phenomenon. This is when I am sit-
ting at a traffic light behind a line
of cars, the light turns green and
nothing happens. I continue idling
at a dead stop for another few sec-
onds before I see the car ahead of
me gradually begin to roll forward.
By the time the light turns red all
of three cars have managed to creep
across the intersection. It doesn't
matter though, because five more
cars follow after the light turns
It seems that the only time
Greenville residents are in a hurry
to get somewhere is when they see a
red light. I figure it works on the
same principle as waving a red cape
in front of a bull. I've seen so many
red lights run I'm beginning to think
red doesn't mean the same thing here
as it does everywhere else. From
what I've been able to tell, red means
hurry, green means go eventually
and yellow has no meaning at all.
This traffic light thing reminds
me of a silly joke my dad told me
when I was a kid. There was this guy
who was always running red lights.
He knew it was safe because his
brother did it all the time and noth-
ing ever happened to him. One day
he was driving along with a friend in
the car and he came upon a green
light. He slammed on the brakes and
screeched to a stop. "The light was
green the friend said. "You could've
gone "Are you kidding?" the guy
asked. "My brother might've been
coming the other way
Think about this the next time
you hit the road: If you drive at the
posted speed limits, you won't have
to run those red lights to get where
you're going on time. And you never
know when your brother may be com-
ing the other way.

grants during the
This belief is supported by num-
bers that show that states with higher
welfare payments have higher ratios
of illegitimate births to mothers who
are welfare beneficiaries.
As a result of increases of wel-
fare legislation and grants during the
early 1960s, illegitimacy rates skyrock-
eted between then and the mid 1980s.
There has been much recent de-
bate over the possibilities of institut-
ing new policies mandating the insti-
tution of government run orphanages.

Recently Hillary' Clinton argued
that she doubted weather Bill Clinton
or Newt Gingrich's mothers would
have given them up without one heck
of a fight.
The solution to the problem is
simple; attack it at the source. Re-
vamp the welfare system. Its time to
cease funding For illegitimate children
born while the mother is on welfare.
My argument has always been:
Why try to get something if you can't
pay for it in the first place. I'm not
alone in my findings, the numbers
speak for themselves. Ninety four
percent of Americans feel that the
welfare system is in definite need of
revamping. Of that 94 percent 64
percent feel that we should no longer
continue to fund for illegitimate chil-
dren born while the mother is on
The lack of responsibility is over-
whelming and we should no longer
tolerate or pay for it. One of the big-
gest responsibilities our society faces
is returning the responsibility of pro-
viding for children back to parents.
According to Wilson, that change re-
quires the emancipation of the indi-
vidual from the restraints of tradition,
community, and government.
Americans have always been the
kind of people that believe in helping
out their fellow neighbor. But, we
should no longer be stuck raising their

I could go on and debate over the
Republican's disdain for the college
generation, but that's not the point
College loans are important to a lot of
people, but the repayment of these
loans is a definite problem.
I should know, I have a Stafford
loan and college would be real diffi-
cult without it There are people less
fortunate than I who depend on loans
to pay for all college costs; tuition,
books, spending money, etc.
These are all loans that must be
paid back in full. For a student who
just graduated, paying back the loan
can be an inconvenience. He or she
may be looking for a job, seeking
graduate education, or looking for a
place to live.
Fortunately, for most loans, while
we are in school we are given the op-
tion to defer the loan payment until
we are no longer in college. The in-
stant we leave school, we are then ex-
pected to commence payments.
I feel this system is a great one,
designed to help people pursue a col-
lege education who otherwise might
not be able to. The usual stringent
Who Wants to
Steal Our Grace
demands for loans are relaxed to ac-
commodate college students. One dis-
tinguishing characteristic of a non-col-
lege loan is interest.
In most situations, when one bor-
rows money interest accrues on that
money until it is paid in full. Anyone
who has used a credit card knows what
this is all about.
The Speaker of the House wants
interest to accrue while we are in col-
lege. I think I speak for most college
students when I say we have enough
problems to worry about apartment
rent, electric bills, phone bills, grocery
bills and. hopefully, a little bit of spend-

To the Editor:
There's been some concern
voiced in the last week about the pro-
posed increase of out-of-state tuition
at the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill, North Carolina State
University and the North Carolina
School of the Arts.
Few of the stories and editorials
have given a full picture of the facts
that support the proposed increase.
It was originally proposed by the Gov-
ernment Performance Audit Commit-
tee (GPAC), the widely-applauded in-
dependent ajdit of state government
conducted in 1992. GPAC's rationale
was that out-of-state students ought
to pay the full cost of their education.
North Carolina taxpayers may not
realized that they now subsidize as
much as 25 of the tuition cost for
out-of-state students at L'NC and N.C.
State, footing the bill for some $2,100
a year for an out-of-state student at
There is no such subsidy at sev-
eral of the UNC campuses, including
UNC-Wilmington and Appalachian
State University. In fact, those schools
actually charge out-of-state students
more than the cost of their education.
It should be noted that even with
this increase, the cost of a UNC edu-
cation is still a good deal for out-of-
state students - still less than the
tuition charged by comparable state-
supported schools like the University
of Virginia, the University of Michi-
gan and the University of California
This budget recommendation is
based on the view that the taxpayer-
financed subsidy is something our
state can no longer afford, given the
other pressing needs we face. Those
needs include tax relief for working
families with children, strengthening
the state's efforts to fight crime, re-
ducing class size in the first grade and
improving direct services for children
in their early years.

The Jerky Boys dial
the wrong number
For those who have never heard
the caustic, insolent barbs hurled by
the Jerky Boys onto unsuspecting
persons who pick up a phone, a new
film, aptly titled The Jerky Boys,
promises to acquaint you with these
two phone pranksters.
I first heard the Jerky Boys
while huddled in my brother's car
last Thanksgiving outside my par-
ents' house. Something about the
surreptitious manner in which we
listened to my brother's tape added
a thrill to what we heard. The mate-
rial seemed too illicit to listen to
with Mom and Dad around. A cer-
tain excitement about doing some-
thing not quite socially acceptable
filled the car as we anxiously
awaited to hear what these brazen
men would do next
My two brothers and I laughed
uproariously at the audacity of these
two callers. The Jerky Boys would
call anyone, in any situation. They
called a clinic claiming to be suffer-
ing from hemorrhoids and called a
talent agency pretending to be the
Egyptian Magician. The nonstop
barrage of insults spewed by these
' two New Yorkers left all three of us
short of breath from laughing so
The two men, Johnny Brennan
and Kamal Ahmed, who play them-
selves in the film, talked to listen-
ers on the receiving end of their
calls with harsh, brazen impudence.
I cannot be certain that the calls
were not staged, but the possibility
of the calls being real made the com-
edy truly stimulating. The thought
of these two Jerky Boys really jerk-
ing someone around until the per-
son finally hung up added the spice
necessary to make the comedy up-
Why anyone thought that a
Jerky Boys film would be a good idea
baffles me, however. Every call
within the film is obviously staged
and therefore lacks the energy of the
tapes. Plus, seeing the callers re-
moves the thrill of imagining what
might be going on with the poor
person on the receiving end of the
Worse yet is that the writers
(helped by the Jerky Boys) tried to
fit a story around which the prank-
sters could make their calls. They
also made a wrongheaded decision
to try to fit in routines from their
tapes. The Egyptian Magician se-
quence is hopelessly out of place.
The Jerky Boys call a gangster
and get him to think they are two
goodfellas from Chicago, working
for a don named Frank Rizzo (an-
other bit from the tapes). They get
to meet with Ernie Lazarro (Adam

They'd better hide their faces! Our reviewer gave phone pranksters the Jerky Boys (pictured
above) the lowest rating possible for their new film, imaginatively titled The Jerky Boys.
Giants walk the Ritz
I honestly didn't think this show
would be that great
No, really! On my way to the Ritz
Sunday night, I didn't expect to be
dazzled by They Might Be Giants.
Sure, they're one of my favorite bands,
but I figured their peculiar brand of
polka-heavy alternative pop was too
studio-bound. I expected to enjoy
myself, mind you, but the best I was
hoping for was to hear some of my
favorite obscure tunes, like "Kiss Me,
Son of God" or "Dead Anything
more seemed unlikely.
Okay, so I was wrong.
But before I get to how very
wrong I was, I need to give the open-
ing act their due. Fresh-faced noise-

Assistant Lifestyle Editor
1 never thought that Belly
would be able to top their last al-
bum, Star, but their new release,
King, is a surprising change of
pace for this multi-talented four-
The album starts off with a
rather upbeat song called "Pu-
berty Singer and guitarist Tanya
Donelly gives us a taste of her
abundant musical abilities on this
song with her guitar riffs and
beautiful melodic voice. Even
though 1 enjoyed the song thor-
oughly, it ended up being one of
my least favorites on the album.
"Seal My Fate" shows the
band's knack for writing slower
songs that explode into powerful
choruses with ringing guitars, up-
beat drumming and loud harmo-
nious vocals. This song also shows
Donelly's skill at writing song lyr-
ics. "Unholy and dirty words I
gathered to me Thinking the
point was keep what's mine for me
While he's laughing Hear my
faith Seal my fate The lyrics
she writes seem to just flow along,
and that in turn makes the songs
themselves flow better too.
The third track on the album,
"Red follows the same slow-to-
fast pattern as "Seal My Fate but
it doesn't fall into the trap of
sounding just like another song.
There were a few moments when
"Red" made me think of the song
"White Belly" from their last al-
bum, but this song has a lot of
merit, and is much more maturely
written than some of their past
"King the title track, is a
very fast-paced song that has
Donelly's voice slightly buried un-
der distorted guitars. It then
jumps into a very straightforward,
almost standard rock chorus,
which makes the song sound a
little unorganized. The song does
boast a short but sweet guitar solo,
and the lyrics are pretty good, too.
As the title track, this song has a
lot of potential because it has that
almost-cluttered sound to it that
everyone is so crazy about these
Currently playing on MTV is
the first release off King, called
"Now They'll Sleep This song is
incredible. It has all the elements
of a great song. Musically, the song
is well constructed, and flows to-
gether very well. The lyrics are also
interesting: "Now I've lost the plot
I'm not the hero I could be
But not the dog I was It's so
catchy that after the first time I
heard it, I sang it for at least three
For the most part, every song
on the album is well-constructed.
Drummer Christopher Warren is
a very capable drummer, and his
ability shines through on King
much more so than on Star. He
has this great style that uses a lot
of buildup techniques. These build-
ups really help the listener know
that something big is about to
happen within the song.
King also boasts a great deal
more harmonization than Belly's
last album. I hear more backup vo
cals by Bassist-Gail Greenwood
pop outfit the Dambuilders, despite
delaying the show's starting time by
nearly two hours, got things off to a

I wasn't disappointed. The Giants

smell a bit Phishy
See BELLY page 10
Last week, I heard a track on WZMB
from a band called Ominous Seapods. It
sounded real Phishy to say the least but
it was definitely worth giving a onceover
listening. So when I found their new CD,
Econobrain, I grabbed it Their sound is
not totally jazzy, bluesy or funky; it's all
these things combined.
One aspect of their sound that cer-
tainly made a favorable impression is that
it was recorded live. Few record compa-
nies will release a band's first effort as a
live album because they can't have the
producers change the music in the stu-
dio to make it sound more commercially
appealing. Most likely, in a release such
as this, what you hear is what you get
That's why I also assumed that their live
show would be as good as what I heard
For the most part, it was. The
Seapods are from upstate New York and
Greenville is the furthest south they've
ever been while touring. They're suppos-
edly one of the most successful bands
on the East Coast However, consider-
ing the size of the crowd at Peasant's
Cafe Saturday night I think it would be
quite difficult to find someone around
here who would agree with that claim.
The show did go much better after
1 am but this was probably due more
to the fact that the audience had a larger
amount of alcohol in their system than
the show actually getting better. Among
the 50 or so spectators at Peasant's Sat-
urday night the majority of the people
were more into in-depth conversations
with each other than checking out the
band they paid a 5 dollar cover to see.
Overall, the Seapods did not have
too bad of an introductory performance
in Greenville. Hopefully they won't be
scared away from our little town simply
because they didn't blow the roof off of
Peasant's. Many bands that come
through Greenville do not have a pleas-
ant first outing and never come back.
Hopefully, though, the Seapods will come
back to see us in the future

Considering how few bad songs �
there are in the They Might Be G-j
ants repertoire, this was a pretty safe ,
claim to make. Giant standards like,

fully mixed in with lesser-known stuff j
like "1 Palindrome I" and "Mammal
In the eyes and ears of the audience, (
our beloved Johns were right: There
wasn't a bad song in the bunch.
Showing off some impressive,
musical talents all the way through
the Giants surpassed the studio veis
sions of just about every song they
played. On "Spy for instance, they-i
expressed their love of '60s spy movie
theme songs and improvisational jazz'j
with a lovely, jumbled climax loosely J
conducted by Linnell.
But the big surprise for the'
evening was "Why Does the Sun
Shine?" A song plucked from some
educational children's record of the)
'50s, this one was released last year j
to mixed reviews. The somewhat myo-
pic tone grated on some ears, and this'
track became infamous as a love-it-or-
For the show, however, the Giants
relieved the song of any myopic quali- j
ties it might have possessed. Speed-�
ing things up. they almost gave this �
one a punk edge. I still can't believe ;
Linnell kept a straight face delivering J
lines like "The sun is a huge, atom
smashing machine" over the driving
beats being laid down by his'
But the giggles were infectious i
at this show. The audience (a pecu- j
liar mix of alty kids, skinheads and
the utterly normal) started moving as J
soon as They Might Be Giants took
the stage and rarely stopped. A mosh'
pit briefly broke out near the stage
and didn't really seem out of place,
despite the light tone. A rash ofj
pogoing broke out. and a conga line �
snaked around the crowd for a while, J
but soon found itself stopped dead in J
its tracks by people surging up from J
the back of the room.
All in all. I've seldom seen a hap-1
pier crowd: I didn't even see any vio- �
lence break out. Considering how i
tightly we were all packed onto the �
Ritz dance floor, that's pretty amaz- j
ing. Perhaps downtown audiences J
could learn from this example
It's even more amazing when you
consider the subject matter of a lot
of the music. They Might Be Giants j
play happy little songs about hoi i ibk i
little people, but that's their charm.
On the surface, their music might
appear frivolous: a friend of mine ac- J

beyond the bouncy beats is a core oi

than I ever did before. This is a great
asset on an album because if you
like to sing a long in the car like I
do. it will be pretty hard to get bored
since there are so many parts to sing
One other great thing about
King is that none of the songs sound
exactly alike. With both Doneliy and
Thomas Gordon playing guitar, both
of their sounds shine through. This
adds more variety to their songs and
shows their ability to put their own
creative effort into the band with-
out trying to outshine each other.
Overall. King is a great album.
There are maybe one or two songs
that start to grate your nerves be-
fore they are over, but I've forgot-
ten which ones they were because
I got so wrapped up in the disc.
1 highly suggest this album to
anyone who is a Belly fan. You will
not be disappointed. 1 will admit
that 1 was a little thrown off when
I first started listening, but I can
already tell that I will like King just
as much, if not more, than I liked
Arkin) in a hopelessly contrived situ-
ation that saps any comedic energy
right from the film.
The Jerky Boys. Brennan and
Kamal, still have humor. Brennan
called into Letterman last week and
got laughs even with his toned-down
language. But the film lacks story,
originality and acting. Not one aspect
of The Jerky Boys warrants praise.
The Jerky Boys detracts from
the comedy of the phone calls. Ev-
ery joke falls flat, which makes the
film painful to watch. Despite cam-
eos by Tom Jones and Ozzy
Osbourne, the film sinks to the low-
est possible depths of cinema, thus
according it the lowest possible rat-
ing. The Jerky Boys need to stay on
tape and away from celluloid.
On a scale of one to ten, The
Jerky Boys rates a one.

Early this season, Lamont
Edwards has stepped up in a big
way filling two new roles for the
Pirate baseball team. The starting
second baseman and leadoff hitter
is hitting .429 after three games,
and leads the team in runs scored
and stolen bases. He has also been
impressive in the field, committing
just one error so far this year.
Success has not come easily for
Edwards, who waited his turn as a
freshman in a reserve outfield role
before finishing fourth on the team
in batting last year with a .317 av-
After a productive summer
with the Arlington Senators in a
Washington D.Carea summer
league, expectations are high for
Edwards. He led the Senators in
batting (.360) and stole 17 bases.
"Lamont Edwards is a player
that has paid his dues Overton
said. "He was a backup player on a
outstanding 1993 squad. Last year,
he proved he is a Division-1 hitter.
I have every confidence that this
year he will prove to everyone as-
sociated with college baseball that
he is an outstanding prospect for
the professional scouts
Edwards has the size (6-2,
200), speed and natural ability to
play second base. He has good bat
speed and a strong arm that he
developed playing in the outfield.
"The couple of scouts that I
have talked to want to see me hit

recruiting dream. At ECU, it's a real-
ity, in the person of sophomore Brian
While at Beaufort (S.C.) High
School, Johnson was a four-year
letterman in track and football as a
wide receiver. The home-state recruit-
ers from the University of South Caro-
lina and Clemson actively courted
Johnson, but it was the word of an
impressed colleague that brought
Johnson to the attention of veteran
Pirate track head coach Bill Carson.
Carson was at his first indoor-out-
door meet of the 1992-93 season,
when he got the tip from a rival coach
about a South Carolina senior who
could do both track and football.
"The coach from University of
South Carolina came up to me and
said, 'Coach, there's a kid in South
Carolina that I think would really fit
the nature of your program Carson
When Carson returned to
Greenville, he did his homework on
Johnson and made several efforts to
contact him, but was not able to reach
him that week.
Within a couple of days, Carson
received a call from the Pirate foot-
ball office. They were looking at a com-
bination football-track athletc.named
"Well, a little light bulb went off
Carson said. "So then when I talked
with Brian, and saw his size, I knew
what he could do because I had
checked that out. His times and all
were very legit 1 knew that he was
going to have a good high school
Both athletic offices worked to-
gether with Brian in an effort to sign
him to both sports for the Pirates.
"I told Brian if ECU football did
not take him, that I would, and give
him a full scholarship Carson said.
"He could participate in football if he

pened Carson said. "Football signed

Drug use hurt '80s Mets

even harder than they played in the
1980s, according to former star Darryl

much, we would have won more says
Strawberry, who played for the Mets from
1983-90. "We had a team full of drunks.
We'd go into a town and couldn't wait to

Former Mets trainer Steve Garland
said that after Gooden got out of a re-
hab center in 1987, the pitcher told him
the team had a drug problem.
"He talked to me about how preva-
lent the drug use was on the team Gar-
land told SI. "He started calling off
names. He rattled off more than 10 -
more than half the team. Probably

'85 and '86 teams were wilder
The story traces the downfall of
Strawberry and Gooden, who helped the
Mets win the World Series in 1986.
Strawberry was released by the San
Francisco Giants and suspended from
baseball for 60 days on Feb. 6 after test-
ing positive for cocaine.

Making the transition from the
outfield to second base hasn't been
easy because of the 30 pounds that
he has put on since last playing the
position. The weight gain has both
positive and negative aspects.
"It isn't uncomfortable, but I
just have to get used to carrying
this weight Edwards said. "I have
spent a lot of time in the weight
room since I started school here,
and it has really helped me to im-
prove my power
As far as goals go, Edwards
doesn't set any individual goals ex-
cept getting on base a lot and im-
proving his batting average. Areas
he wants to improve on are steal-
ing more bases by getting a better
jump on the pitcher, and to cut his
swing down to make better contact
with the ball.
The double-play combination of
Edwards and shortstop Chad
Puckett looks to be outstanding
because of Puckett's experience at
the position and Edwards' out-
standing range and strong arm.
"I really like playing with Chad
because he has played the position
for a couple years now, and he is
one of the best defensive players
on the team Edwards said. "Once
we get used to playing together we
should really be good at turning the
double play. One thing I have to get
used to is pivoting and making the
throw to first when runners slide
and try to take me out. You have
to make the tag and throw really
fast to get the job done
The team was picked to finish
fifth in the CAA, a prediction based
upon the graduation of the major-
ity of the pitching staff.
"We are a young team, but we
do have a lot of talent Edwards
said. "I think we can finish first in
the conference because this is a
much closer, unified team than last
year. Coach Overton is a great
coach. He teaches us to play with
reckless abandon, and play as hard
as we can every inning
Edwards began his career at
East Carolina as a two-sport athlete,
playing football and baseball. At
wide receiver Edwards excelled in
several spring scrimmages, but base-
ball has always been his first love.
"I was going to be drafted, but
I decided to give football a shot be-
