Downtown crowds maced
too much for
J. Miles Layton
Greenville Police sprayed pep-
per gas into noisy downtown
crowds late Saturday night.
Several hundred students and
Pirate fans went to Fifth Street bars
to celebrate ECU's victory over
Syracuse. Around 2 a. m the street
was clogged with people which
prompted several policeman to try
and disperse the crowds. After
shouting into bullhorns to leave the
downtown area, students responded
on both sides of the street with
"F the police
Seargent Bo Jackson of the
Greenville Police Department said
the crowd was getting unruly and
blocking the street.
"A public street is open for ve-
hicular traffic and by getting the
ECU students to disperse, we are
looking out for their safety Jack-
According to Jackson, crowds
began to throw things at officers.
"Some of the people began to
throw stuff at officers and one was
hit twice he said.
Jackson said that when people
failed to disperse, officers began to
spray Capston gas into the crowds.
Capston gas, a deriative of pepper
gas, causes eyes to tear up and
lungs and air passages to burn.
During the melee, police took
four into custody and charged them
with disorderly conduct. Sixteen
others were cited for impeding traf-
fic and there were four ABC viola-
Jackson said this was not like
Halloween because the street was
not closed off making it dangerous
"There's a possibilty that some
crazy guy could have just decided
to mow down anybody in his path
Sensing the danger, police
sprayed gas into the crowds.
Freshman Stacy Jones did not
hear any warning prior to the pep-
"I was sitting next to Subway
and all of a sudden I felt my throat
burn Jones said. "I started sneez-
ing and the worst part - my chest
locked up. This meaning I have
asthma and I had no prior warning
and, for the first time had a se-
vere asthma attack.
"If I did not have my inhaler
on me, I would have dropped to the
ground and probably would have
been trampled. I did not come to
ECU to get maced or attacked
Gretchen Klein, Junior
Yes, because we pay
such high prices for the
cafeteria food which is
somewhat decent � so,
why can't we have fast
food chains for the same
price or even cheaper?
Jamie Caviness, second
No, I think a mid-morning
snack should cost
Jeremy McCullen, senior
Yes, Campus food
services are a rip-off.
Taesha Inman, sophomore
Yes, because the cost of
the meal plans are too
high. The school feels that
they are helping you, but
they are just making
money off of you. It would
be cheaper to have it on

President Dale Emery thinks the
police were justified.
"I could see why the cops were
as harsh as they were Emery said.
He said he saw a car full of girls
stop in the middle of the street
while a bunch of guys came and just
sat on the hood.
"That could have been my sis-
ter, or my mom, or my grand-
mother he said. "If it had been any
of those three or anybody else I
know, and they were as terrified as
those girls were, then I feel that in
that instance, as well a couple of
others, they were justified.
"But it is obviously wrong to
walk down the street and randomly
spray anybody and everybody

Injured student taken off life support
The world is a sadder place for the

neck down after a diving accident at
Emerald Isle Beach in Carteret County,

Calhoun suffered a stroke that night
and remained in a deep coma until
yesterday. After all medical options had
been discussed, the decision to take
him off life support was made by the
He is survived by his parents
James Sr. and Sandra Calhoun and his
two older sisters Michelle and Linda.
His girlfriend Tonya Oxendine is an
ECU student and member of the Lady
Pirate softball team.
The 20-year-old Rocky Mount na-
tive was a standout in several sports
at Rocky Mount Academy, earning All-
Conference mention in basketball and
baseball. He also coached Little-League
baseball this past summer, his team ad-
vanced to the playoffs.
He aspired to become a coach or
athletic director at the collegiate level.
Described as a fierce competitor,
Calhoun's enthusiasm and caring made
a big impact on the youths he came in
"Jim is the type of kid you want
your kids to grow up to be like
Calhoun's uncle Terry Barbour said.
"He wasn't perfect but he was a very
good, decent young man who cared
about others and left a positive impres-
sion on everyone he met the kind of
person you felt good about leaving in
charge of your children. He loved kids
and they loved him
The Calhoun's never gave up hope
for this special young man, praying and
praying for a miracle. His girlfriend

Another ECU student has been
killed in an automobile accident.
Karl Dwight Righter, 25, died
Friday, Sept. 1 in a motorcycle ac-
cident in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Righter was pronounced dead
at the scene after he was struck by
a Cadillac crossing in front of his
path at U.S. 17 and 33rd Avenue
South. According to an article in
The Daily Reflector, Righter was
not wearing a helmet at the time
of the incident, but the driver of
the vehicle was expected to face
"Karl was a very people ori-
ented person, he enjoyed being
around people said Betty Righter,
Karl's mother. "He would always
wear a big smile and people would
remember him by that
Funeral services were held at
11 a.m. on Sept. 4 in Knightdale.
He was buried in Bethany Chapel
Cemetary. Righter's family asked
that any memorials be made to the
ECU School of Medicine.
"He had expressed interest in
it (medical school) Righter said.
She is hoping other students
and victims will be able to gain

"He was a friend to anybody -
even in elementary school one of
his teachers said she would sit
the new students next to Carl
Righter said. She said her son had
a way of making people feel com-
fortable and getting to know them.
A member of the Kappa Alpha
fraternity, Righter had at one time
hoped to go to medical school.
"He always had the highest
GPA said Mart Wooddal, fellow
KA and Righter's friend.
Righter had worked as a life-
guard in North Myrtle Beach for
quite a while, Wooddal said.
"We're from the same home-
town; he was my roommate said
KA Jason Warren. "We lived to-
gether at the beach. He was always
happy. Nothing in the world could
get him down

playing basketball, football and
wrestling. He was very athletic and

Career Services and the School

search on the companies they think

agencies that will be attending in the

fessional and carry a resume for po-
tential interview opportunities.

ally get from around 400 to 500 (stu-
dents) and they're from all depart-
ments with the exception of educa-

says no to chains
North Carolina State has them,
Chapel Hill has them, so why doesn't
Dining Services allow competitive food
chains here at ECU?
Referred to as branded concepts,
Director of Dining Services Frank
Salamon has several reasons for not hav-
ing them on ECU'S campus.
"Creatively, we feel we're getting
good mileage out of our units, since they
are our units we have total flexibility
to come in and mix and match different
food items in combination or try and
experiment with different things
Vice Chancellor for Student Life Dr.
Alfred Matthews agrees that ECU allows
for a great deal of flexibility through its
current food service.
"Aramark has an exclusive con-
tract Matthews said. 'They're able to
put together a complete food service. We
started in 1988 with basically no food
service at all the program has been
built since then
Salamon said there is also a cost to
working with national brands. A percent-
age of revenue earned from such sales
would have to be paid to the parent com-
pany in order to gain advertising, licens-
ing rights and so forth.
Randy Lait, business manager for
University Dining at North Carolina State
University said the cost is worth the busi-
Lait said meal plan purchases from
upperclassmen have actually increased
since the introduction of branded con-
cepts at State a few years ago, and the
revenues brought in outweigh any fees
paid to the parent company.
"It gives you a real stamp of approval
in quality Lait said. "Anybody can make
a taco, but Taco Bell has it down to a
Salamon said external factors must
also be considered when deciding
whether or not to allow any branded
concepts on campus. Because ECU is a
major economic presence in Greenville,
Salamon said several factors have to be
taken into consideration.
"It helps the off-campus brand be-
cause it increases awareness, it increases
customer acceptance of the brand
Salamon said. "And then of course the
other, opposite school of thought is that
it hurts the local franchise because in-
stead of people leaving the campus to
get their Taco Bell tacos, they can stay
Salamon said ECU's current food
services are a great deal and offer stu-
"In food that we make, burgers,
chicken, pizza and wokery sandwiches.
I'm very comfortable with where we are
in comparison to the marketplace, we do
market studies as well as anyone else
He said the high priced bottled soda
prices and other convenience items car-
ried on campus are areas he constantly
struggles with. Salamon said he could
choose not to offer items such as bottled
drinks and other similar products but
"I don't have that kind of luck, my cus-
tomers demand that convenience
Although he said the idea is always
under consideration, Salamon said there
are no plans for competitive chains such
as Burger King and Taco Bell on cam-
pus at this time.
"We don't have any definite plans
right now to introduce any branded con-
cepts, we never know what the future
holds Salamon said. "We are success-
fully building our business right now we
are in an expansion phase without na-
Salamon said any profits made by
dining services are reinvested in the pro-
gram to provide improved facilities such
as Todd Dining Hall and an expansion
for The Wright Place. Programs and ac-
tivities are also provided through dining
services at a cost to the organization,
Salamon said. Dining services often funds
activities such as Midnight Madness and
Seminar teaches dressing for success
Imagine going in for an inter-
view with a firm for a position
which you are well qualified and
not getting the posuion because of
the way you are dressed.
The ECU School of Business
hosted a beneficial seminar to com-
bat this problem last week.
The third annual Professional
Dress and Demeanor Program was
presented on Thursday, Sept. 7 in
Mendenhall Great Rooms two and
three from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
In the past, concern was ex-
pressed that many ECU students
did not dress appropriately for job
"Some on-campus recruiters
confided in me that they saw a
weakness in the preparation of our
students for interviews and one of
the concerns was the appearance
of our students not wearing profes-
sional dress sponsor Dr. Douglas
Two parts make up the pro-
gram, one addressing professional
demeanor in business situations
and the other part dealing with pro-
fessional attire. Proper attire for
women as well as men was dis-
played by managers of The Casual
Corner and Brody's.
"The program, I think, has had
some positive impact Schneider
said. "Some of the recruiters have
noticed a difference in the appear-
ance of the students. They seem to
be better prepared for the inter-
views. The job market is so com-
petitive now that recruiters are
looking for any excuse to eliminate
someone from consideration

These misguided souls feel it is perfectly alright to humiliate
themselves and the school by getting intoxicated beyond all mea-
sure and harrassing bystanders, bartenders and policemen. Sure,
celebration is called for, but can't it just be responsible enough
not to take away from our victory. When the Pirates beat the
Wolfpack in 1987, a bunch of people stormed the field and de-
stroyed the State ECU series which cost the school millions of
dollars in game revenues. Despite a hardfought Pirate victory,
all everybody could talk about was the riot afterward. Our
credibilty was destroyed.
We are not defending the police department either. One would
almost think Barney Fife is in charge the way they love to dis-
perse crowds. The police had no right to mace this crowd. Though
unruly and stupid, this crowd was not marching to the mayor's
house with torches in their hands.
These irresponsible actions could have been a disaster. What
if someone had been trampled? What if someone blinded by the
gas had been hit by a car- Fifth Street was still open?
How can anybody explain this away? "Sir, because we over-
reacted your son got trampled when the crowds we maced dis-

The police department evokes images of jack-booted thugs de-

The key to this madness is a little understanding. Though
this word may read like a politically correct, wimpy epitaph, it is
the truth. The police should remember that people are going to
get just a little unruly on such days. This is to be expected. Stu-
dents should remember the people in those uniforms are just
trying to do a job.
Maturity is something both sides should look into before
someone gets seriously hurt We have been lucky thus far but
the odds are going to run out one day. If one student or police-
man gets killed our town will be forever living under a horrible

community is a safe place of National Champions. They should
think of a team, that against any odds, can win. In this way, we

Why China for women's conference?
In one of the biggest jokes in the
recent international scene. China has
been selected to host a world confer-
ence on women. From Aug. 30 to
Sept. 15, delegates from 170 sover-
eign nations will attend the United
Nations Fourth World Conference on
Women in Beijing, China. What is the
joke? No country has abused and op-
pressed more women than China.
Beijing holding a conference for
women's rights is like the Ku Klux
Klan having a racial reconciliation
China's record is horrendous at
best. Rather than promoting freedom
for women, China has forced abor-
tion policies and laws limiting repro-
duction to one child per family. The
restrictions are so tight that China
actually monitors menstrual cycles so
it can identify young women with un-
This is not just limited to restrict-
ing women but also destroying
women in the making. China is a
country that has murdered tens of
millions of female infants. These are
not abortions but cases of infanticide
based upon gender. The bias has
been so effective that in large parts
of China the sex-ratio favors men by
If that is not enough, China's
overall human rights record is another
joke that has no punch line. The
atrocities are overwhelming and even
According to World, human fe-
tuses have begun to appear on menus
of Chinese restaurants as a delicacy
and health tonic. They reported that
an Eastern Express correspondent
entered the state-run Shenzhen
Health Center for Women and Chil-
dren and requested a fetus for a
feigned illness. The next day the doc-
tor gave a small jar filled with thumb-
sized fetuses. The doctor said There
are 10 fetuses here, all aborted this
morning. You can take them. Nor-
mally, we doctors take them home to
eat - all free. Since you don't look
well, you can take them
Gross, disgusting, revolting and
even immoral are all words that come
to mind. Not the kind of policy that
seems to respect women or even hu-
man life in general. This is not just a
random event but an event that took
place at a state run facility.
But in reality we should not be
shocked that China is the sight of the
conference, because the conference
itself is not exactly on solid ground.
At the heart of the governing docu-
ments for the UN and U.S. sponsored
event are anti-family sentiments (mar-
riage is bondage), gender feminism
(gender is a product of upbringing not
nature), so called "reproductive
rights" (free and unrestricted access
to abortion as contraception) and anti-
religious rhetoric. Most of what the
conference stands for is diametrically
opposed to the beliefs and feelings of
the average American.
Countries reluctant to adopt the
ideas about abortion and safe-sex ide-
ology are not left to handle the deci-
sion on their own. The good old U.S.
will be doing a little coercion. U.S aid
programs (our tax money) will be
linked to the willingness of these gov-
ernments to implement these so called
"population control" measures. Those
that fail to participate, mainly pre-
dominately Muslim and Catholic na-
tions, will be threatened with reduced
foreign aid. The result is that coun-
tries complain because they cannot
get medical support or help in devel-
oping clean water supplies, but they
can get condoms by the truck load.
This is not just talk. President
Clinton has requested $635 million in
the 1996 budget for international
population control. Maybe "Condoms
for the World" should be next years
campaign theme. In the end the whole
issue is not a joke but an organized
attempt to allow governments to con-
trol women, not respect them.
Bottled smiles for miles and miles
Last week WNCT-TV 9 ran a story
on a group of children that took a field
trip to a local tobacco warehouse. The
event was sponsored by a group called
Friends of Tobacco. The idea here, I
guess, was to educate school children
on North Carolina's largest industry-
I see seven or eight guys, in three-
piece suits, sitting around a table in a
dark warehouse somewhere. One guy
says " Okay, here's the problem. We
have to think of some ways in which
we can get public exposure without
reminding anyone that our group is
dedicated to supporting one of Ameri-
cas most addictive and mortal prod-
ucts. Anybody got any ideas?" A
shorter guy on the opposite side of
the table pulls a giant cigar out of his
mouth with a cloud of smoke. As he
begins to speak, he ashes into midair
on the man sitting next to him. " If
we were to get a bunch of kids to walk
around near some tobacco we might
be able to put it on TV
The point here is that the amount
of rhetoric going on in the media
about the tobacco industry makes me
ill. I do not fault WNCT-TV 9 for run-
ning the story. They were nice enough

The simple fact that this group had
the ability to convince school officials
to take children to a stinky, nasty to-
bacco warehouse is amazing.
While watching the segment
filled with pictures of children carry-
ing tobacco leaves home to their re-
frigerators- comforting thought, 1
heard some genius comments about
the standpoint that this group takes
on tobacco regulations. The news
cast reported that "The group of

I don't think that this group is
trying to fool anybody. I'm sure that
everyone involved in this group does
not think that school children should
become a part of this kind of adver-
tising. I'm also sure that there are
some that simply want to protect
their own self-interest. These being
the people who make their living
from the growth and sale of tobacco.
The number of options to tobacco
farmers who could lose income due
to the further regulation of tobacco
is limited. However, 1 think that they
have to realize how harmful tobacco
is. It is ridiculous to use children to
sway the American public.
I pray that Friends of Tobacco
rethinks the ethics of teaching kids
that tobacco is cool. Maybe this is a
glimpse of the '96 campaign to put
the virtue back into tobacco. We
might see reports of tobacco compa-
nies sponsoring "Chew till you drop
" contests for local pre-school kids.
Maybe they will hire Bill Cosby to
eat Jell-0 and give out cans of dip at
tee-ball games. At this point, noth-
ing would surprise me.
A friend of mine made a good
point once, one that gave me the great
proverbial reality check. She told me
that I was the pessimist's pessimist.
"You know how the regular pes-
simist is supposed to see the glass as
half-empty?" she queried. "Well, with
you, not only was the glass totally
empty, but someone ran off with it to
sell it for an insultingly low price at
some grubby flea market
Not true, I told her. The glass
never existed to begin with, it was just
a figment of everyone's imagination.
Depressing stuff. It's no small
wonder that she went off to enjoy
sunnier attitudes. I, of course, re-
mained behind to tend the cobwebbed
lighthouse of self-imposed misery.
Years passed, each one pressing
on me a growing aversion to glasses,
and just when I was beginning to feel
comfortable with feeling awful, a cu-
rious thing happened. I fell in love and
got engaged. The pall that had hung
over my head for 20 years skulked off
to go bother someone else.
My friends wanted to hear noth-
ing about it. Mention love in circles
these days and you'll be kicked off the
porch like a leperous weasel with its
tail on fire. The disappointed are of-
ten intolerant of other people's hap-
piness, and quite a few of them have
relegated ecstasy to anything 12

But there's other exit doors.
There always are, for those deter-
mined to get out of Desolation Row.

Freshmen just catch hell.
I don't think it's anything
personal, really. All of us upper-
classmen were freshmen once and
we received our fair share of teas-
ing, too. We're just sort of pass-

Besides the usual freshman er-

and buying books for the wrong
classes, I almost wrecked my aca-

stereotypically boring small rural
town, the lure of the college so-
cial life was overwhelming. Swiftly
and systematically abandoning
study in favor of fun, I became
that ultimate college horror story
you hear from preachers, parents
and Jesse Helms. I was "cor-
rupted" by the big city.
It started small. I had this
economics class that I found sort
of boring. The main lecture was
taught by this guy who looked
like Jack Nicholson but had none
of his charm. In and of itself, that
wasn't so bad. There were about
50 other people in the room, and
we could all just anonymously
But I also had to attend an
econ lab, which was taught by San
Sub Lee, the killer TA. By all ac-
counts, San was a nice guy, and
he certainly knew the subject mat-
ter. But he had this really heavy
Korean accent, and my Eastern
North Carolina backwater ears
couldn't understand a word he
So I stopped going to lab.
Then I stopped going to the main
lecture, too. Not surprisingly, I
didn't do very well on the next
test, and wrote the class off.
It was all downhill from
there. Once I let one class go,
another followed, and another,
until I was attending only two
This left me with loads of free
time, which I used to further my
social life. I started hanging out
with a bunch of comic book freaks
and punk rockers, leading a bi-
zarre dual life in two of the most
outcast sub-cultures on campus.
I developed unpopular political
beliefs and a taste for weird com-
ics, loud music and strange cloth-
Then there were the girls. I
learned how to meet girls that
year, girls who were as eager for
new experiences as myself. Nature
took its course, again and again.
I was experimenting at nearly
every opportunity. I won't go into
any details here, but let's just say
that I once had a conversation
with a lamp post, and leave it at
that. When I look back, I'm
amazed at how lucky I was to have

Chicken filet sandwiches are cur-
rently a popular menu item. Hardee's,
Wendy's, Miami Subs and campus din-
ing services all offer their own version.
Though Miami Subs' chicken filet sand-
wich is substancially larger than any
other local restaurants' version, so is
the price tag at $3.49. For 50 cents
more, Wendy's will give a chicken filet
combo. It's a smaller piece of chicken,
but fries and a soda are included.
The Spot in Mendenhall, will sell
you their grilled chicken sandwich for
$2.69. At lunchtime, campus' grilled
chicken combo (fries and a drink) costs
$2.99. The campus chicken is smaller,
but the combo is still substantially
cheaper. Salamon won this round, but

immense popularity of the Psychic

Many people, while claiming
not to believe in such things, reli-

even more dial up their own "per-
sonal" psychic for advice on every-
thing from money matters to their
love life. Generations of children
have played with Ouija boards, and
stories abound in many families
about ghosts, telepathy and
miracles. How many of these sto-
ries are coincidence, and how many
are true parapsychic occurrences?
The study of parapsychology is
an extremely controversial one.

psychic ability is a true and natu-

Karges, a hypnotistmentalist,
wants to prove that psychic pow-
ers are more than just sleight-of-
hand parlor tricks.
To understand Karges' point of
view, we should look at psychic phe-
nomena more closely.
It is reasonable to say that al-
most everyone has some interest in
parapsychology. Whether that in-
terest is manifested in belief or in
a desire to prove so-called
Houdini. The master illusionist was
one of the most well-known magi-
cians in the world, but ironically he
did not believe in psychic ability.
"Spiritualism has claimed
among its followers numbers of bril-
liant minds - scientists, philoso-
phers, professionals and authors
Houdini wrote. "Whether these
great minds have been misdirected,
whether they have followed the sub-
ject because they were convinced
fully of its truth, or whether they
have been successfully hoodwinked
by some fraudulent medium, are
matters of conjecture and opinion
What exactly is psychic ability?
Is it the ability to read minds? Is it
the ability to move inanimate (or
animate) objects without ever
physically touching them? Is it
nothing more than fodder for sci-
ence fiction stories? Does it even
Many scientists say it does. In
fact, those same scientists claim
that everyone has some latent psy-
chic ability. Russell Tong and
Harold E. Puthoff, researchers at
the Stanford Research Institute,
conducted several experiments in
the mid-seventies to try and explain
Since then, research has been
conducted at an amazingly rapid
rate. It seems that everyone wants
to cash in on the "psychic" wave -
from illusionists like David
Copperfield to self-proclaimed
psychics found in infomercials on
The question is, should the
public blindly accept this new psy-
chic trend as fact, or reject it as
clever illusion? How much should
be considered entertainment?
Where do we draw the line?
All of which brings us back to

It's always hard to follow in the
footsteps of a band from your own
region. Unfortunately, the music in-
dustry is constantly looking at cities
such as Seattle to produce the next
Pearl Jam and Nirvana.
Interestingly enough, the south-
east region of the U.S. is getting more
hype now than it did in the early
R.E.M. days, thanks to MTV-favorites
such as Hootie & the Blowfish and
The Dave Matthews Band.
The word is, the next big hit from
the south is South Carolina band
Edwin McCain, which dropped the

cussionist Kevin Smith, who left the

songs from the independently-pro-
duced CD Solitude.
Every song that is redone for

made it good to begin with. For ex-

known songs, "Don't Bring Me

lation. A song about struggle and
survival, the new version sounds way
too jazzy and happy-go-lucky. Instead
of jamming to it, I feel like I should

Tuesday, September 12,1995 The East Carolinian
ECU takes Syracuse in
For the Pirates, the season should
appear brighter now. They had their
most impressive comeback in ECU his-
tory against a nationally ranked team
on the road, and they will finally be able
to play in front of the home town fans
in Dowdy-Ficklen this weekend.
What could be finer? Do you 'Be-
lieve' in '95?
After a shaky first half marred by
earry penalties and the Syracuse offense
lighting up the secondary for big gains,
even the biggest die-hard Pirate fan
could have been in a state of disbelief.
But the Pirates were victorious over the
Orangemen with a 27-24 win.
However, if you were to look on
the ECU sideline, there was one man
who was not Head Coach Steve Logan,
poised with the intensity to single-
handedly beat the Orangemen if he
needed to, gambled on critical fourth
down play, and went right after the un-
tested SU secondary with three receiver
sets and Jerris McPhail in the backfield
with great results.
"I have our players convinced that
'it's not over he said. "Syracuse is a
first class program and so is East Caro-
If the first half was any indication
of how the Pirates will play the rest of
the season, then do not show up until
the second half for the exuberant fire-
works' display? led by junior quarter-
back Marcus Crandell resembling a
former ECU quarterback who used to
wear no. 2 and did the same thing to
the Orangemen four years ago.
Syracuse, who exploited the Pi-
rates defensive secondary, rattled off 21
first half points on 36 plays covering
259 yards. Each of the three scoring
drives covered an average of 71 yards
on eight plays.
The Orangemen began the scoring
with a Malcolm Thomas eight yard jaunt
up the middle at the 2:59 mark in the
first quarter. After an ECU fourth down
attempt failed due to a false start on
die offensive line, Syracuse orchestrated
its second drive that saw Tebucky Jones
cap off the series with a 10-yard gallop
off the blocking of Harvey Pennypacker
and Shelton Prescott
After another quick three-and-out
SU took advantage of a missed assign-
ment in the Pirate secondary as redshirt
freshman Donovan McNabb hooked up
with senior Marvin Harrison on a 49
yard completion. With 8:30 remaining
in the second half and two plays later,
McNabb found junior wideout Deon
Maddox in the back of the Pirate end
zone for the 21 point lead.
"The first thing I'd like to do is give
them credit for being down 21-0 in our
facility and coming back to win SU
coach Paul Pasqualoni said.
Just before the intermission and vi-
tal to Pirates to shift the momentum
was the opportunity to get points on
the board. With less than three minutes
in the second half, Crandell led the two-
minute offense against a well-rested Or-
Putting ECU on the scoreboard
with 21 seconds left, Larry Shannon
caught Crandell's five-yard touchdown
pass in the back of the end zone quiet-
ing the Carrier Dome crowd.
"When something happens like
that, it's important for the next guy to
step junior tightend Scott Richards
Showing signs of receiving an
adrenaline shot at halftime, Crandell and
the Pirates marched down the field on
the opening drive of the second half to
narrow the margin to a touchdown. Out
in the left flat Crandell spotted senior
halfback Derek Batson who eluded an
Orange tackier and raced 29 yards for
Four series later, and on his way
to a career day, Crandell spotted an open
Richards in the SU end zone for the
possible game tying touchdown, how-
ever the extra point was blocked leav-
ing ECU still in reach, 21-20.
But Syracuse answered with a 54
vard strike to senior Marvin Harrison
.hich put the football inside the ECU
35 yard line. Although ECU held the
offense to just three points, it may have
meant a big momentum shift if the Or-
ange put six points on the board.

Marcus Crandell added a new dimen-
sion to his game this weekend against
Syracuse - running the football. A
quick Orangemen defense forced him
out of the pocket and he responded
with several long runs including one
for 15 yards. He outrushed tailback
Jerris McPhail with 78 rushing yards.
Crandell was named the ECAC
Player of the Week this week after a
great performance in which estab-
lished school records for passing
yards (392), total offense (453), pass
attempts (59) and most plays from
scrimmage with 74. The junior from
Robersonville, N.C. is third on ECU'S
career passing yardage list behind
leader Jeff Blake. He has amssed his
total of 3,517 passing yards in just

Jerris McPhail continued to shine
Saturday against the Syracuse
Orangemen accumulating 200 all-
purpose yards including a record-set-
ting 122 yards receiving out of the
backfield. He scored on a 14 yard
touchdown catch in the fourth quar-
ter, easily outracing the Syracuse de-
He leads the Liberty Bowl Alli-
ance in rushing with 186 yards after
the first two games and is third in
receptions per game behind team-
mates Jason Nichols and Mitchell Gal-

pose yards as well as sixth in total
Heady numbers for a player who
was considered a question mark go-
ing into the season, replacing record
setter Junior Smith. The Clinton, N.C.
native transferred from Wake Forest
University three years ago and after
one year as ECU's best wide receiver
and another as Smith's understudy
McPhail is making his mark this year.
He is considered the best athlete
on the squad with a 4.38 40-yard
dash and a 41 inch vertical leap, win-
ning the school's slam dunk contest
the past two years. He has already
drawn the attention of NFL scouts
who have been at recent practices of
the Pirates. Mel Kiper, ESPN and
NFL Draft Analyst has McPhail rated
among the top players at his position.
Both impressed Central Michi-
gan head coach Dick Frynn.
"Marcus Crandell is one of the
outstanding quarterbacks in the
country Frynn said. "Jerris McPhail
is a big, strong and fast tailback who
also catches the ball well. And they
operate behind a big, experienced
Two members of that line suf-
fered injuries Saturday in tackles Ron
Suddith (ankle) and Charles Boothe
(knee). Boothe returned to action but
Suddith was injured too badly to play.
The All-Independent selection is ex-
pected to miss two weeks of action.
" In their place junior guard Jamie
Gray (6-foot-3 285) and junior tack-
les Shane McPherson and Mark
McCall stepped in and did a job, keep-
ing the speedy Orangemen defense
off of Crandell.
Gray, a native of Phoenixville,
Pa. closed off the speed rush of the
Syracuse defensive line, locking them
out with his superior upper body
strength (415 pound bench press).
"I wasn't really worried about
their upfield rush Gray said. "I was
worried about them coming under-
neath. You are sort of on an island
out there, all by yourself. I just kept
playing them inside-out and tried to
stay between them and Marcus.
Unrecruited by big-time north-
ern schools like Penn State and Syra-
cuse, Gray feels like he has proven
himself against top competition.

Here's the beef
Stacey Whitehead was hard to
miss on the football field in ECU's
opener versus the University of Ten-
nessee Volunteers. The junior col-
lege transfer's number 91 jersey
stretches across his huge upper
body, the midsection isn't a
sculpted one, he carries a little ex-
cess weight on his 6-foot-6,300 plus
frame, but there is no doubt that
he belongs in the middle of the Pi-
rate defensive line.

in the nation he dominated mak-

Steve Logan said. "With his size
and speed offensive tackle is prob-
ably his best position.
Mpumi Masimini is another
huge (6-foot-4, 295-pound) new-
comer who played well against
Tennesee. The big youngster from
Washington D.Cs Woodrow Wilson
High School saw signigicant game
action at left offensive tackle. He
did allow one sack but it seemed to
be more of a mix up on his assign-
ment than any lack of ability.
On several plays number 50
dominated his opponent, planting
him on the grass of General
Neyland Stadium. This type of pro-
duction is what was expected when
Logan signed the Super Prep Ail-
American out of the Capital City.
Masimini considered Colorado, Illi-
nois, Wisconsin and Syracuse be-
fore deciding on ECU and immedi-
ate playing time.
He gives offensive line coach
Jeff Jagodzinski another huge, ag-

Butkus Award candidate Mark
Libiano is also rated among the top
players at his position by Kiper,
rated as the No. 6 linebacker pros-
pect for this spring's draft. The 6-
foot-3, 235 pound senior leads the
team with 20 tackles, two tackles
for losses and is tied for the team
lead with three quarterback pres-
Hard-hitting junior inside line-
backer Marvin Burke (6-foot-l, 240
pounds) is bringing the wood op-
ponents again this year. After sup-
planting incumbent starter B.J.
Crane in preseason drills Burke is
second on the team in tackles with
19. One of the most intense and
physical players on the team Burke
has an instinct for finding the foot-
ball that can not be coached.
Tight end Scott Richards had
a career day catching eight passes
including a long touchdown Satur-
day. He was joined by Mitchell Gal-
loway who had eight catches as
well. The marks tie a ECU record
for junior single game receptions.
"This game the tight ends were
a big part of the offense, catching

of scrimmage, we are going to get
Defensive linemen Walter Scott
(two sacks), Lorenzo West (two
sacks) and Travis Darden (moved
from end to nose guard this week
were impressive against the bigger
Syracuse offensive line. Scott bull-
rushed his way to sack McNabb
twice while West and Darden used
a blend of speed and strength to
generate a pass rush. Darden, a
true freshman is learning on the
job, but is very aggressive and
strong. He is described by Logan
as a "tasmanian devil on the foot-
Aaron Black has recovered well
from appendicitis to start at out-
side linebacker. He had the option
of redshirting this season, but de-
cided to play instead.
Emmanuel McDaniel, a return-
ing starter at cornerback who had
five interceptions last year may be
on the start of another take-away
string with a big interception
against the Orangemen.
E.J. Gunthrope, Brian Bentley,
Tabari "Snoop" Wallace and Ber-
nard Lackey have been the main-
stays of ECU's punt and kickoff cov-
erage making several solid tackles.
John Peacock has changed his
mind about his college choice and
will attend Georgia Southern, a 1AA
school in Statesboro. Ga. that has
won two national championships.
He is immediately eligible to play
and will see game action at either
tailback or linebacker.
Jermaine Smith, who trans-
ferred to Central State (Ohio) this
summer had three sack and sever,
quarterback hurries in his first
game. He was expected to replace
Willie Brookins at one defensive
