Excitement filled the air this

RHA Week gives students
the opportunity to become in-

Freshmen get into trouble
Everyone knows that carrying
a full course load can be challeng-

may not be used to the amount or
type of work required in college.
There are currently 1,864 out

across campus. Of the forms mailed

Faculty members assessed all
freshmen to determine whether or

One of the first sheets students
fill out is an evaluation of factors
contributing to academic difficulty.
This acts as a self-assessment tool
for students, Joyner said.
Students also learn how to
compute their grade point average
(CPA) and can make a prediction
of their GPA. Valuable tips and in-
sights on ways to succeed in col-

stand why you are in college" and
"try to have realistic expectations"
benefit the student in assessing
their college careers.
The Counseling Center and the
Academic Support Center offer aca-

throughout the semester in areas
such as career exploration, test-tak-

ment, along with various other ar-

But will we
Break out all the purple and gold: Homecoming starts
next week. The entire week celebrates Pirate pride. Folks
will come from all over to celebrate ECU. Most of the
out-of-towners are people who were where we are now;
ECU students. They symbolize what we aspire to be one
day; ECU graduates.
In years past, Homecoming week was an event that
everyone looked forward to. Alumni traveled far and wide,
from the corners of the country to return to Greenville
to pay tribute to their alma matter. Parents of current
students made sure to save the weekend for the parade
and of course, the big game.
Months of preparation went into every detail of ev-
ery project for the single most important week at ECU.
The few weeks prior to Homecoming were reserved for
ironing out all the little things; not necessarily problems,
but just a little security blanket for the entire school.
Tradition also plays a vital role in Homecoming ac-
tivities. Some traditions have been aborted. One such
change to tradition started last year when, for the first
time, we elected a king and queen instead of just a queen.
A Homecoming concert was also supposed to be new for
This year the university gave permission to use Will-
iams Arena at Minges Coliseum for a music concert for
Homecoming. Following in the footstep of schools like
Duke University with Cameron Indoor or the Dean Dome

series with a Homecoming band, but there will be no
As far as musical entertainment, we'll have to settle
for whoever happens to be playing downtown next week.
Edwin McCain, who just got off the road with Hootie &
the Blowfish, is playing downtown next week. Maybe
that's the biggest concert we have to look forward to. Of
course we at TEC don't think that if we were already
alumni we'd travel from the far corners of the earth to
see McCain, but it's better than nothing.
As far as an entire event to organize, Homecoming is
no small organizational feat by any means. It's an event
that requires months of preparation, hundreds of hours
of work, but when the event runs smoothly those in-
volved can sit back and enjoy what they've each helped

the United States, it would be easier
to understand why 1 miss '80s. I

.� understand the effects of
A .iheimer's disease because my
grandfather was diagnosed with it just
a few years ago.
It's sad that the Reagan family
has no control over his actions; how-
ever, one good thing has resulted from
his diagnosis - his family is there for
as well as
Before marrying Nancy, Reagan
was married to movie actress Jane
Wyman, famous for her appearances
in "Falcon Crest" Their marriage did
not last long, although they had two
children: Maureen and Michael. In
1952, Reagan married Nancy, and
they also had two kids. Ronald, Jr
who's now a defunct television talk
show host in Seattle, and the ever-
controversial Playboy centerfold and
rebellious daughter Patti Davis, are
the children of that second marriage.
Although the Reagan family was
dysfunctional for a very long time, it
is great that the children can rally
around their father in this time of his
deteriorating health. Although the
memories of Reagan's children grow-
ing up will always remain with Reagan,
it is definitely difficult tor the family
to enjoy the final years of his life.
I miss President Reagan because
he was more than just a president -
he was a leader. 1 distinctly remem-
ber the day that he was shot by John
Hinckley, Jr. I came home from school,
and with my mother and sister in the
kitchen "shush-ing" me, I waited for
the CBS News Special Report. Now I
was only in second grade, but I knew
far too weli what was going on. All of
the different camera angles showing
James Brady and the president get-
ting hit by the bullets made me cringe,
but I knew deep down inside that he
would pull through the ordeal.
As a nation, we weathered a lot of
domestic and foreign enemies head-on
with our fearless leader at the helm.
From the invasion of Grenada to the
summits with Gorbachev, we were
there. The "Great Communicator
made more State of the Union ad-
dresses than our current and previous
presidents combined. We never had any
reason to fear the "Evil Empire" (the
former Soviet Union), nor would we
ever succumb to communism.
The overall feeling of the nation
was positive, and in a world that seems
so whimsical today, those days should
be cherished. Reagan instilled the
sense of American virtues and the
domineering persona of the United
States over other countries in every
aspect of life and sent us the message
that if the country faltered, it was be-
cause we failed the system.
President Reagan brought excep-
tional ideals to his presidency. No presi-
dent since FDR could inform the
American public as well as Reagan
could, nor could any president make
you feel that the United States was

both its space program and by limit-

red nuclear deployment button with
the tip of Reagan's finger striking its
head, and the United States military
deploying jets to cease terrorism and
potential nuclear assaults. However,
the only fear we had was in ourselves.
It has been seven years, Mr. Presi-
dent, and you are sorrowfully missed.
Hey boys and girls, it's flashback
time again. Let's look back to the
1992 election. There was this move-
ment of these little old first-genera-
tion upperclass newcomers to the
world of politics. They all rallied
around this self-made billionaire. His
message was plain and simple; battle
political partisanship that has been a
part of our government since the be-
Well, many of us, including my-
self, quite simply wrote him off. It
seemed quite apparent at the time that
he would in fact go the way of all in-
dependent party representatives and
old soldiers by simply fading away.
Not so, he still has an enormous
amount of support These people that
we dismissed as over-driven moderates
are back, and there are a lot of them.
It's really not too hard to believe
when you look at the facts. Take into
consideration that in a recent CNN
Today poll many people expressed in-
terest in the idea of a new third party.
Okay, maybe this poll hit a lot of
people who don't vote. Anyway, we
can't stray away from the most alarm-
ing fact of all; an honest 20 to 30 per-
cent of the electorate has formed a
radical middle that quite simply is
unhappy with politics as they have
come to be practiced.
This radical middle is made up
of a group of people that don't really
like the way either of the two parties
are running things. This middle is no
longer just the older, first-generation
upper-class that I described above.
They have filtered down into the main-
stream by climbing down the socio-
economic ladder. They now include
These people are
patriotic and are
the working class as well, an invalu-
able (dare we say the most important)
realm of support for any group that
wants to be legitimately recognized.
At the center of their Christmas
list are congressional term limits, fis-
cal responsibility and pork barrel poli-
tics. They are well-informed, and are
more concerned with the issues than
the leaders themselves. That's where
things get crazy. These people are
patriotic and are willing to sacrifice
their own personal interests for the
good of the nation. "How patriotic
you ask? One supporter stated that
you could put him in a room all by
himself, play the Star Spangled Ban-
ner 100 times consecutively, and he
would still not tire of it
I'll admit that aside trom my
birthday the Fourth of July is my fa-
vorite holiday, but that's definitely
out of my league. That kind of pas-
sion is the exact reason why this
bunch of self congratulating and prais-
ing group is a force to be reckoned
with and courted during the 1996
The Republicans are starting in
the outside lane with them already.
They have lost support by allowing
that they are conducting business as
usual. They aren't going after the lob-
byists that control spending and in-
fluence regulation. They loved the
Contract with America when it began,
but hate the amount of steam it has
lost in recent months. Republicans
also don't support the line-item veto,
the salsa that the Perotians always
make a point of serving with their
The Democrats stand to gain the
most from this movement for the time
being. The simple fact is that histori-
cally groups bent on change have al-
ways sided with them.
The fact that Ross Perot is look-
ing to get his own independent spot i
on the '96 ballots is not going to mat- ��
ter much. No serious candidate is in
any way, shape or form going to run
on his ticket. The money they stand
to get is phenomenal, but it's not
enough to hide the perception that
they will still be a puppet for Perot
To sum things up, we are talk-
ing about the single largest swing
vote party since the remnants of the
Bull Moose Party went the way of
the Dodo after losing Teddy
Roosevelt. Any party that can pull J

The Wonders of Nature
It's that time of year again.
That's right - it's Fall. For many
ECU students, Fall is their favorite
season. Why? There are many reasons.
Fall is the season of shorter daylight,
colder winds, colorful leaves and, most
importantly, Homecoming! This year,
Homecoming festivities should be
better than ever.
Homecoming is more than just
an excuse to party. It's also a time to

Bowie, NIN mesh

Every paper has a TV critic, but

no mere TV junkie. No, our man wil

of quality or good taste. Truly, he has
no shame, and that is why we call

That's the way I feel about NBC's new
additions to its Thursday night line-up,
"The Single Guy" and "Caroline in the
Photo courtesy of Walnut Creek
David Bowie, rock's ever-changing chame-
leon of style, played Hardee's Walnut Creek
Amphitheatre in Raleigh last Saturday with
Nine Inch Nails.
So I had this ticket to see Nine
Inch Nails and David Bowie at Wal-
nut Creek. I'd been bouncing around
three states by car for the better part
of two weeks and was completely ex-
hausted, but I had to travel on to Ra-
leigh anyway. 1 had to stay true to all
that is Rock-n-Roll.
Unfortunately, I arrived at Wal-
nut Creek too late to catch the open-
ing act, so I can't say anything about
them. As I sat in a seat that was not
made for my ass, I wondered why 1
was bothering at all. I just didn't want
to be anywhere but in bed.
Suddenly, the stadium lights
went out and Nine Inch Nails came
on. Dressed all in black and headed
by the angst-ridden Trent Reznor, NIN
pumped blood into my lethargic sys-
tem and I was quickly e ergized.
Reznor's angered voice and his seduc-
tive, sexual stage presence kept the
entire stadium on its feet. Backing
Reznor's angry young man personae,
NIN's heavy guitar
drums sent a vibe
through me that City
made bouncing my
head up and down
just seem natural.
The first half
of NIN's set carried
the visual sense of
a minimalist artist.
Going against the
light show that a
Bon Jovi concert Mark Brett
would carry, each Lifestyle Editor
band member had �����������
his own set of white
ments hanging di-
with no front light-
ing. This forced
shadows on the
band's face that
prevented the audi-
ence from clearly
seeing the demons
that were singing
such dark songs as
"Pinion" and the
boasts that he
wants "to fuck you like an animal
Indeed, the combination of the music
and the lighting had created one level
of hell on stage.
Halfway through the set, this
bare bones act transformed into a
multi-colored kaleidoscope as lights
from all angles flooded the stage. But
this did not detract from the music,
which maintained its throbbing edge.
In some bizarre way, the rainbowed
lights actually complemented NIN's
Suddenly, the back area of the
stage was filled with a huge screen
projection that presented the audi-
ence with visuals of bees and sperm-
shaped images. While this occupied
the crowd, the music mellowed down
to a Pink Floyd-inspired rhythm. I
believed NIN to be gone.
A spotlight shot to the center of
the stage and the audience screamed
in exhilaration as David Bowie
emerged from the darkness like a
Christ figure to rescue us from the
hell NIN conjured. Bowie's deep voice

Every other reviewer on earth has
brought up the obvious comparisons to
that other NBC juggernaut "Friends
And truth be told, it's a pretty easy thing
to do. Keeping that in mind, let's look
at other, less-obvious things like plot,
character interaction, style and whether
either show is really funny.
"The Single Guy" (NBC Thursdays
at 8:30) features stage and screen actor
Jonathan Silverman as Johnny, a writer
in New York looking for his "big break
All of Jonathan's circle of friends are
married, and they would like to drag
him down the aisle with them. They
include couple one, Trudy (Jessica
Hecht) and Matt (Mark Moses), and
couple two, Sam (Joey Slotnick) and
Trudy (Ming-Na Wen).
"Guy" does feature some talented
and charming players. Silverman is
great, playing Johnny with a nice bit of
sarcasm to tain. as character's nice-guy
image. The other players are good too,
even though Slotnick and Vfen come
off at times as being a bit unbearable (a
surprise coming from Wen, who was so
good on "ER"). Also featured is Ernest
Borgnine as Manny the doorman. That's
right, Borgnine, last gracing us with his
presence on "McHale's Navy" some 30
years ago, is back. And honestly, he's
great! Who knew?
So with a talented cast, what is the
problem with "The Single Guy?" The
plots so far have just been dull, dull,
dull. And contrived. I mean, in three epi-
sodes, the basic plot has been "Johnny

"Deep Space Nine" has always

Considering that its acting and
writing runs easy rings around the

been able to figure out why. The

Full Length Album
A current music magazine named
this album "Weirdo Record of the
Month and it deserves every bit of
that title. What Thee Shatners have
done is combine Star Trek themes
with surf instrumental to make one
of the most "warped" concept albums
ever heard. Available from Planet
Pimp Records on CD and vinyl LP,
Full Length Album is one of the
strangest, hippest, goofiest records
I've come across.
With songs like "Green Blooded
Love "Beam Big Daddy, Beam
"Klingon Boarding Party and the
ingeniously titled "Kirock (I Am) you
know this has got to be good. How-
ever, only a few of the tracks ("Stron-
ger Than Kirk" and "Damn Your
Fucking World) have any lyrics, so
mostly the record consists of your
basic surf instrumental.
But that's not so bad, because
Thee Shatners have spliced in dia-
logue bits from what sounds like an
old Star Trek Storybook & Record set
("I know Scotty, how do you fight a
microscopic joke?"), along with sound
effects from the original show (red
alert, phaser fire, warp speed, etc.),
to punch up the laugh factor in the
record. Boy, does it work!
The majoi drawback is the
record's length. Althoun there are
12 tracks on the album, it clocks in
at less than 20 minutes because the
instru mentals are so short. Of course,
this doesn't include the bonus 13th
"Mystery Track which is almost as
long as the other tracks combined. I
won't give away what this track is. but

Get a grip on your health nggH
ECU Student Health
The ECU Student Health Service
(SHS) is in full swing so far this se-
mester. There have been some changes,
some continued services and processes
and some traditional data that goes
along with day-to-day operation.
As far as some of the changes at
the health center are concerned, some
of the costs have changed in the phar-
macy and in other areas (lab and X-
ray). Not to alarm anyone though, this
is still by far the least expensive health
care a student can receive. I mean,
where else can you get a prescription
for penicillin that costs less than $4?
Anyway, with the absence of a fee in-
crease, the changing economy and the
changing costs in paperwork (state
contracts), there are some slight dif-
ferences in costs at SHS from last year.
On to the next topic: continued
services and processes. The Student
Health Center is still operating on an
appointment system from 8-5 dur-
ing weekdays (like a doctor's
office), and urgent care fy
hours from 9-12 on the �,
SHS is also cori-
tinuing a patient satis-
faction survey we insti-
tuted in the spring of
1995. If you are treated in the
health center, you may receive a
phone call later asking about your re-
cent visit The caller knows nothing
about the reason for your visit (except
for the date and doctor you saw), and
asks only generic questions about your
satisfaction with Student Health. Con-
fidentiality is always assured with the
Student Health Service.
Another continued service is the
Student Health Advisory Committee
(SHAC). This committee is composed
of students, faculty and staff (mostly
students) and serves as the liaison
between students and the Stu-
jr dent Health Center. Anyone
who is interested can call
Heather Zophy (328-
Now for the data that
is used tor day-to-day opera-
tion: immunizations are a big
J " concern. Many students did not
complete the requirements prior to
beginning classes and have now received
a letter stating that if they weren't prop-
erly immunized they would be with-
drawn from school. The 30-day grace
period for receipt of a satisfactory re-
port of medical history, including the
required immunization is over. Please
contact Suzanne Tumage at 32&6841
if you have any questions regarding your
required immunizations. Remember, TB
skin tests can be performed at the Stu-
dent Health Center for $5 every year,
not just when you are first enrolled.
Aside from some minor changes,
SHS is still operating in the same ca-
pacity as a doctor's office. Remember,
the Student Health Center is here for
you, the students. For more information,

Then NIN waved good-bye and
left. Bowie was solo now, with his own
band backing him. I admire Bowie and
fully acknowledge him as one of the
greats. But I' can't get into his stuff
once we cross from the '70s into the
'80s. I know his new concept album
Outside: The Nathan Adler Diaries
is a '90s attempt to return to form,
but (with a few exceptions) I feel like
he has said all he has to say.
Overall, Bowie's stage presence
was worthy of his classic status, but
something was lacking in his music.
Some of his new songs, such as 'The
Heart's Filthy Lesson do illustrate
the intensity of Bowie's earlier efforts.
However, this intensity quickly dies
out in other songs.
I applaud Bowie for not doing a
greatest hits show. He owes it to him-
self and his fans to experiment and
try new things. But I got the impres-
sion that he teamed up with NIN in
an attempt to win a different audience.
Therein lies the problem. The au-
dience was divided, and I am solid
proof of this. Not all NIN fans are

For "Guy this situation is the
whoie plot The only really interesting
thing has been to see who will turn up
as Silverman's woman-of-the-episode
(Olivia D'abo in the first. Heather
Langenkamp of the Freddy movies in
the third). For this show to survive, it
has to begin to make use of its unique
qualities, building up the relationships
between these married people and their
single friend. The creators of "Guy"
shouldn't have to rely on stunt casting
to promote interest in the show.
Comparing "Caroline in the City"
to "Friends" is really pushing the bound-
aries for me, even though it has been
done by some reviewers. "Caroline" fea-
tures film star Lea Thompson as the
perpetually-perky Caroline, a New York
cartoonist whose syndicated strip (called
"Caroline in the City" - go figure) has
the dishonor of being confused with that
comic harbinger of doom, "Cathy Ugh.
Caroline has just broken up with
her childish doofus boyfriend Del (Eric
Lutes), who is also her boss at a greet-
ing card company that promotes
"Caroline" cards. Enter Richard
(Malcolm Gets), the cranky colorist that
Caroline hires to help with strip pro-
duction, and you get an interesting love
triangle of sorts.
As with "Guy the actors and their
characters are all wonderful. Thompson
is great and I'm not just saying that
because I loved "Some Kind of Won-
derful Lutes hasn't quite hit a good
stride, but he is enjoyable. The real find
here is Gets' Richard, who plays like the
evil twin of Fraiser's brother Niles. Gets
is hysterical and ruthless, puncturing
Thompson's shiny, happy balloon when-
ever given the chance. However. Gets
still manages to show us deep feelings
for Caroline through his sardonic mask.
Talented actors aside, the plots on
"Caroline" aren't exactly original, either.
They are okay, but they rely too much
on the style and presence of the show's
lead actors to float them. So far, I can
see the on-again, off-again relationship
with Del coming from miles away. Same
with Richard's unrequited love. Still,
"Caroline" is better than "Guy enter-

What "Caroline" and "Guy" need
to do is take their interesting premises,
ignore all of the unfair comparisons to
other shows in the NBC hierarchy, and
come up with scripts that work for their
own particular idioms. I fear that they
will instead attempt to bottle the suc-
cess of "Friends" and think that they
can duplicate it on their shows. If that
is the case, see the Xerox comment ear-

Enter Worf. Assigned to Deep
Space Nine to help Captain Sisko
with Klingon Federation relations,
Worf is put in a tough position. In
good "DS9" tradition, he is forced
to make a hard decision: remain
loyal to Starflet, or join his war-
rior people in the conquest they
were born for.
And that's the Reader's Digest
version. There are subtle nuances of
racialcultural tension and charac-
ter history involved here that would
take days to explain. A seemingly in-
consequential bar scene between
Quark and Cardassian tailorspy
Garak speaks volumes to "DS9"
fans, but may seem to be just a funny
aside bv new viewers.
But that's the beauty of "Deep
Space Nine The ever-evolving po-
litical social situations add a depth
that Lhe other Trek shows simply
lack. The other series may have
more action, but "DS9" is a differ-
ent kind of show. Action's okay, but
action backed up by layer after layer
of plot is loads better.
That's why the season premiere
is the ideal "DS9" episode. Plot ele-
ments that have been brewing for
years come together and form new
situations. Characters are put
through the ringer, making tough
personal decisions that have real
consequences. Paranoia and in-
trigue build and build and build
until they explode into action.
I can only hope that all of
"DS9's" detractors are sufficiently
impressed. They'd better be: this is
the best Trek show since the classic
"Best of Both Worlds" episode (in
which Captain Picard is assimilated
by the Borg). I also hope they real-
ize that the things that made this
episode so good were already
present on "DS9 The arrival of the
Klingons only brought the show's
quality to their attention.
On a scale of one to 10, the sea-
son premiere of "Deep Space Nine"
rates a very satisfying 10.

Coaches ready for action
pL .fr C
Pirate football mid-term report card
The date OcL 15 has been in Joe
Dooley's and Ann Donovan's minds
since last spring, when they were hired
to take over their respective programs.
That date marks the official start of
the college basketball season, and
these two first-year head coaches are
ready to finally get down to business
Dooley, who is the youngest head
coach in Division I men's basketball,
will have to replace three starters off
last year's squad. Dooley will be try-
ing to lead the Pirates to their third
straight winning campaign. Anton Gill
and Chuckie Robinson, the bulk of last
year's Pirate scoring have graduated,
and shooting guard Skipp
Schaefbauer transferred to Illinois SL
The Pirate offense will be led by
sophomore point guard Tony Parham
who averaged 9.1 poits and 2.7 re-
bounds last season and was also
named to the All-CAA rookie squad.
Tim Basham is the Pirates' leading
returning scorer. The junior from
Roanoke, Va. averaged 10.6 points last
year and was also 61 of 106 from three
A player Dooley hopes that can
fill the void at the center position is
Florida SL transfer Jonathan Kerner.
The 6-foot-ll Kerner is very mobile
for a big man. Veterans Vic Hamilton
and Chuck Jones will be vying for the
other forward spot. In the off-season
Dooley went the junior college route
in recruiting. He signed forwards
Morris Grooms, Chris Tiger and guard
Deron Rippey. Grooms is a 6-7 forward
from Pompano Beach, Fla. and should
Players to watch
contribute early. Rippey, sophomore
Othello Meadows and red-shirt fresh-
man Lawrence Thomas will be battling
it out at the shooting guard position.
Top reserves for the Pirates include
forward Von Bryant, center Don Dou-
glas and guard Damon Van
Coach Anne Donovan's Lady Pi-
rates return all five starters from last
year's 8-19 squad. This year's team
should be an exciting one as Donovan
brings her style of basketball to ECU
that made her a member of the Na-
tional Basketball Hall of Fame.
Donovan hired a completely new staff
which includes Ginny Doyle, the
NCAA record holder for free throws,
Charisse Mapp, a former UNC Tarheel
star and Gaynor O'Donnell an ECU
graduate who had an impressive ca-
reer as a Lady Pirate.
Tomekia "Fruiky" Blackmon is
the Lady Pirates top returnee. She
averaged 16.1 points a game as a jun-
ior last season. Danielle
Charlesworth, a 5-foot-3 senior, will
once again anchor the offense. The
Raleigh, NC native averaged 10.5
points per game and also led the
team in assists.
Tracey Kelley should also make
a big contribution. The 6-foot junior
will help the Lady Pirates in rebound-
ing. A big pickup in recruiting for
Donovan's squad is 5-9 guard Laurie
Ashenfelder. The Danville. Pa. native
had an impressive junior college ca-
reer. She should help at the shoot-
ing guard. Other key players for the
Lady Pirates this season will include
junior forward Shay Hayes and
guards Justine Allpress and Belinda
The Lady Pirates open up their
home regular season schedule on
Dec. 2 as they host the Lady
Wolfpack of N.C. State at Williams
Arena, while the men open up their
home season against Elon, Nov. 25.
It's open week for ECU, and the
break in the action couldn't come
at a better time for the Pirates.
ECU did the impossible in Sep-
tember, winning three out of five
games when most media outlets
only had the Pirates winning one
of those games in their pre-season
The Pirates were blessed to
come out of that first month of play
virtually unscathed, but injuries are
now starting to plague the team. Of-
fensive tackles Charles Boothe and
Ronnie Suddith have nagging ankle
injuries stemming from the Syra-
cuse victory, and now fullback Jerris
McPhail has suffered a sprained
wrist at the hands of Cincinnati this
past weekend. McPhail was also ren-
dered unconscious in the contest,
and noseguard Travis Darden
sprained his ankle against the
Bearcats. With the open date on the
schedule, the Pirates have two
weeks to heal their wounds.
Perhaps coincidentally, the only
injuries suffered by the Pirates have
been on Astroturf fields. The con-
troversial playing surface has usu-
ally been favorable to ECU'S offen-
sive attack, but has now become a
Also, the loss this past week-
end to Cincinnati will be a bitter
taste in the mouths of the players
and coaches for the next two weeks,
who now must channel their ener-
gies toward preparation for Temple.
The Owls will visit Greenville for
Homecoming on OcL 21.
With six games under their belt,
and five remaining including three
home games, here's a look at how the
Pirates are faring so far this season.
The Pirate offensive unit has
struggled in the past three games.
ECU was shut out by Illinois, only
scored three points in the second half
against West Virginia and couldn't get
the job done against Cincinnati.
The offense shined, however, in
the second half versus Syracuse and
the first quarter against West Virginia.
The Pirates came back from 21 points
behind to defeat the Orangemen at
the Carrier Dome and jumped on the
Mountaineers early, creating a point
margin that they could not overcome.
These two brilliant offensive show-
cases display the team's potential. The
bottom line is wins, and you can't win
The defense has definitely
outplayed their offensive counterparts
this season. ECU has previously been
known for its productive offense, but
that trend has swung the other way
this year, as the defense has kept us
in every game we have played this
season. The squad cannot be given
enough credit for their performance,
holding Illinois to seven points and
Cincinnati to 13 in losing efforts. The
27-7 loss to Tennessee was not indica-
tive of how close the game was.
The Phate "D" held overrated quar-
terback Peyton Manning in check for
the majority of the game. The only
breakdowns this season have occurred
in situations when the defense was on
the field for most of the game, due to
turnovers and stalls by the offense.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B
Chid Holcomb kicked the
game winning field goal against
West Virginia, but missed an extra
point in the same game. Holcomb
booted his best kick of the season
last weekend, a 42-yarder, against
Cincinnati. Matt Levine is punting
well, and credit should be given to
the blocking on the special teams,
without which the kicks would not
be gotten off.
Jason Nichols has assumed
the punt return role for the Pirates
this year. II took a couple of games
for Nichols to settle into the posi-
tion, letting a couple of returnable
punts go, but he is now playing in
outstanding fashion. The special
teams coverage of punts and kick-
off returns has been mediocre this
OVERALL GRADE: B
The Pirates have been up and
down all season, and it's hard to
tell which team is going to show
up on Saturday. The team is moti-
vated to accomplish their "unfin-
ished business" of returning to the
Liberty Bowl and winning it, but
should not be content to just beat
enough Division-1 teams to return
to Memphis. The talent is there to
go above and beyond their imme-
Due to the loss Saturday at Cin-
cinnati, a showdown with Southern
Mississippi is likely to determine the
Liberty Bowl Alliance Champion.
The Pirates have performed well in
general, but need to take their play
to another level to be considered
for post-season play.
Recently, the ECU men's lacrosse
club traveled to Wake Forest for their
first game against the Demon Dea-
cons. With games against Appalachian
SL and N.C. State under their belt,
Wake Forest entered the game with a
record of two wins and no losses.
During last season N.C. State pulled
a last second upset victory over the
Pirates. This led to a belief that Wake
would have an easy victory over East
Carolina. The Pirates, however, had
something else in mind.
The game began with ECU look-
ing a little rusty and Wake control-
ling the momentum of the game. It
was in the first quarter that tragedy
struck, when defensive-man Greg
Daisey suffered a separated shoulder
while attempting to retrieve a ground
ball. Daisey suffered a third degree dis-
location of his right shoulder, tearing
ligaments and tendons. Due to the
extent of his injuries, Daisey is not
expected to play for the rest of the
year and will probably require surgery.
At the end of the first quarter,
the score was 5-1 in favor of the Dea-
cons. In between quarters the team
seemed frustrated, not because they
were losing but because they were not
playing to their potential. East Caro-
lina knew what they needed to do.

McLaughlin shouted orders to take

Lady Pirate soccer player Barrie Gottschalk believes this season is
going to be one of rebuilding. This sophomore midfielder hopes to see
an improvement from last year's team which recorded only two wins and
sustained 15 losses.
Gottschalk. who started in ail but one game as a freshman, had two
goals and one assist during the 1994 season. She believes this season is
going to be better than last season's because there is more team unity
among the players. Everyone on this team now gets along on and off the

David Gaskins, assistant director of

many more to soon start, there is never

Mr. Gaskins commented that there
are many different intramural sports
going on at this time, and there are
many more planned for the rest of the
semester. Intramural activities are open
to all students, faculty and staff. Teams
can consist of fraternities, sororities,
residence hall residents, and indepen-
dent teams which may be campus
groups or any group of students that
would like to participate. To sign up,
either the team captain or the individual
needs to attend the meeting on the date
of registration and sign up in that sport
If you don't have an organized
team, that doesn't necessarily mean you
won't be able to play. Often there are
teams that are looking to pick up a few
more players. The only way to know is
if you attend the meeting. If you can't

Gaskins said the participation in
intramural sports is good. He realizes
there are other things happening on
campus so not everyone has time for
participating, but he also realizes that
often students do not always know
about the upcoming sports. Mr. Gaskins
admits that the department could do
more to promote their interests, but he
also says half of the responsibility rests
on the students being interested.

The East Carolinian
Tarheels outlast week�.
The Lady Pirate Volleyball team
unfortunately lost an uphill battle this
past Monday night in Williams Arena
at Minges Coliseum. The UNC Tarheels
beat the Lady Pirates in three straight
sets of 8-15, 13-15 and 11-15.
At the beginning of the
game, ECU seemed ex-
cited and ready to
dominate the court
The stands were
active with a
good turnout of
students and family
members of the team
as well as some fans
who had driven from Ra-
leigh to support the visitors. Al-
though support from the fans was over-
whelming for the Lady Pirates, the
team was unable to turn the cheers
The first set was highlighted by
senior forward Melanie Richards who
placed precise, yet powerful cross court
digs between the Tarheel players. Late
in the first set with the Tarheels up 8-
11, the head referee failed to call a
hands-over-the-net call on the Tarheel
team, sending the ECU stands into a
frenzy. Soon after this first failed call,
the referee failed to call a four hit rule
violation on the side of the Tarheels.
The Pirates were visibly discouraged.
Of course, Richards returned the fa-
vor with an extra hard kill.
In the second set ECU was able to
bring up the scoreboard from behind,
but not quite enough to take the game
point The set finished at 13-15.
The third and final set was
long and grueling. At 11-14,
the final point was not eas-
ily accepted by the lady
Pirates who returned
the volley over and
over again with an ex-
citing dig delivered by
junior Kristen Woodruff.
Afterwards, a dis-
couraged Head Coach Kim
Walker explained she was,
"Disappointed we lost but I think
we played well. We were outmatched
and outsized she laughs at her under-
statement "We got stuck in a couple
rotations and that hurts. Carolina is a
confident team. They beat us. we didn't
The ECU Lady Pirates are travel-
ing to the William and Mary tournament
this weekend Oct. 13-14 in
Williamsburg, Va. ECU is scheduled to
play James Madison on Friday at 4:30
and Clemson on Saturday at 2 p.m.
The best part about soccer to
Gottschalk is the team sports atmo-
"Working as a team to get a
job done is the best thing
It is that kind of attitude that
the 1995 squad is looking for. So
far the Lady Pirates have a record
of 1-10, and 0-4 in the CAA, which
they can only hope to improve upon.
Gottschalk goes on to say that the
team does have set goals and hopes
to do better than last season.
Because this season has been a
little rocky at times, the team must
pull together and look forward to
the future. "We have a very positive
coach and a positive team. "We all
believe in ourselves Gottschalk
This year's tough matches will
come from opponents like James
Madison. George Mason and William
and Mary. Gottschalk feels that the
team knows what they are doing and
is confident they know what they
are capable of. As far as the season,
she simply says, "It's coming along
First year Head Coach Neil Rob-
erts thinks a lot of Gottschalk. "She
has proven to be a leader on and off
the field said Roberts. "She guides
us, leads us, and takes over the cen-
ter midfielder position
One of the strengths about this
team is the amount of communica-
tion between players and coaches.
"You lack something when you don't
have communication off the field,
because if you do have it, you can
carry it on to the field during a
game. Everyone tries to help one
another out and correct each other's
mistakes added Gottschalk.
So what about the weaknesses
of the team? Gottschalk says it is
having to playing the whole 90 min-
utes. During the first half, the team
goes out on the field and has a lot
of enthusiasm and is ready to play.
But then in the second half, after
about 10 minutes, the enthusiasm
is lost. "During the second half we
kind of lose it she said.
Last year Gottschalk believed
she had a lot to prove, being a fresh-
man. However, this year she feels
more mixed in with everyone and
believes she won't stick out as
When Gottschalk isn't practic-
ing or involved in a game, you will

ing a weekend with her parents at
home in Falmouth, Va. This health
education major hopes to go into
the field of sports administration.
