At the national convention on Jan. 25, these students competed against
17 universities from all over the United States. The students were asked to
plan a $114 million construction project The students had to estimate utili-
ties, discuss landscaping, financing, where to put in roads and an abundance
of other topics.
When the competition was over, ECU walked away with two awards.
ECU came in fifth place overall in the competition. Arizona State re-

third place and the fourth place award was given to the University of North

NCSU club finds homes for old textbooks
When the fall semester ended, many students traded in their text-
books for a lot less than they paid for them at local bookstores.
The only thing worse than getting next to nothing for your book is
finding out that the bookstore does not even want to buy it back, because
new editions have been published or the professor has changed books.
These books usually end up in the trash or as door stops. But thanks
to the Lorax Environmental Club at North Carolina State, unwanted
textbooks now can be relocated to a place where they will be appreciated.

UMC Research shows plusminus grading causes little change in G.P.A.s
After its first semester, the grade on plusminus grading system at
the University of Missouri-Columbia is starting to come in.
Some UMC professors believe it is too early to judge the plusminus
Despite affecting many individual students' grades, plusminus grad-
ing had only a minor affect on overall averages, according to the registrar's
report on grade distribution from the fall semester.
The report showed that the mean grade point average for the fall
semester was 2.852, a slight drop from the 2.868 mean grade point aver-
age from the fall 1994 semester.

CPS - Ever notice that woman

Her problem may be more than just
a case of the nerves.
According to University of Cali-
fornia-Davis Women's Resources and
Research Director Robin Whitmore,
many female students' reluctance to
speak up in class is a result of years
of subtle discrimination.
"By the time a female student
comes to college, she has experi-

Teen convicted of murder
Tired of Waiting For Cool
(AP) - Three young men were
convicted of murder and a fourth was
found guilty of voluntary manslaugh-
ter Monday in the slaying of a teen-
ager who was beaten with baseball
bats on the steps of his church in
Two other teen-agers were con-
victed of conspiracy in the attack on
16-year-old Eddie Polec.
Polec, who was from
Philadelphia's Fox Chase section, was
attacked by teen-agers from a rival
high school in 1994 to avenge insults
and get even for a reported assault
on a girl from their suburban com-
munity of Abington.
The girl later acknowledged she
was never assaulted.
The ferocity of attack stunned
residents of both neighborhoods and
exposed problems with Philadelphia's
police dispatch system. Seven 911
operators were disciplined after tran-
scripts showed that some of them
grew impatient and didn't send po-
lice until about 40 minutes after the
first of many calls. "
Parents sobbed as the jury con-
victed three of the defendants - Nick
Pinero, 18; Anthony Rienzi. 18; and
Thomas Crook, 19 - of third-degree
murder, rather than first-degree mur-
der, as prosecutors had sought.
According to witnesses, all three

Polec up after he had already been
injured, giving Crook and Pinero
clean shots at the teen's head. Reinzi
also was accused of taking a "golf
swing" at Polec's head.

ing the bats, while Khathavong was

mony of youths at the scene, particu-
larly Kevin Convey, who was origi-
nally charged with first-degree mur-

agers were lying to avoid implicating
themselves and their closer friends,
and noted that Convey named at least
five other youths who beat Polec but
who were never charged.

ing something very important she
said. "It goes beyond the classroom.
It's about voices heard in society
FIBER from page 1
financial aid should also become a lot
"It looks like we'll be receiving
financial aid applications for 1996-97
in an electronic manner, which could
possibly mean that there will be less
of a delay between the time a student
applies for financial aid and when the
application data appears on the ECU
The student database, along with
several other options will soon be
available to students through the
Internet and kiosk (information) ma-
chines that programmers in CIS are
currently working on. The machines
have touch screens and with the aid
of an identification card, will allow
students to access their financial aid
status, class schedule, grades and
many other services, Price said. CIS
has three machines which will be
spread across campus.
Price said CIS built extra space
into the network, but that demand for
connections has been so great that the
department has almost run out of
space. CIS continues to hook depart-
ments into the network, and is plan-
ning to help design a video surveillance
system for ECU Police to monitor a few
parking lots across campus.
CIS employees' hard work paid off
recently, when they took first place in
the Consulting Engineers of North
Carolina '95 "Engineering Excel-
lence Competition" for design.
"We've got u very technologically
advanced design said Thorn Lamb,
associate director of systems and com-
munication for CIS. "I think the
award was really a combination of the
stress or when we've had a death in
the family disordered eating, when
taken to an extreme, can lead to an
eating disorder Shepherd said.
Shepherd said the timing of the
screening program is ideal because
this time of year is when many stu-
dents may experience disordered eat-
ing as they try to lose weight in prepa-
ration for spring break.
Part of the goal of the screening
program is to provide some education
and early identification in an effort
to prevent such disordered eating
from becoming a serious eating dis-
order, Shepherd said.
According to the counseling
center's brochure on eating disorders,
90 percent of sufferers are female.
Shepherd said however, men cannot
be overlooked. She said that male ath-
letes in some individualized sports
including gymnastics, weight lifting,
running and swimming are at a higher
risk of developing an eating disorder.
Shepherd also said that men are more
likely to have the binge eating disor-
der over anorexia nervosa or bulimia.
Others at a higher risk for devel-
opment include frequent dieters, those
with a family history of obesity and
those with a family history of alcohol
fact that we did it with a limited bud-
get in a state system in a very short
period of time, and still managed to
pull off the technical side of it"
Lamb said several factors were
used to judge the competition includ-
ing budget timing, technical complex-
ity and innovative uses of the system.
A voice response system is another
area the administration has started
"We've also talked with Telecom-
munications about the possibility of
having some options on our telephone
system Stelma said. "One option
would allow students to request finan-
cial aid application forms, another op-
tion would allow students to listen to
general information about the finan-
cial aid application process. We want
to limit the options so people don't
have to wade through a maze to get to
a real person
Registration may also see an over-
haul in years to come.
"There is a task force put together
by the Chancellor and chaired by David
Watkins, Academic Affairs, that is look-
ing at the entire 'registration' process
� which we are defining as the whole
process of becoming an ECU students
- scheduling classes, getting financial
aid, paying the bill, etc Stelma said.

Treatment for an eating disorder
largely depends upon the individual's
needs. Shepherd said that treatment
most often consists of a combination
of individual counseling, nutritional
counseling, group therapy, a physical
evaluation and in some cases, medi-
Shepherd said that she wants
people to encourage their friends who
have eating disorders to come to the

should come to the screening and at-
tend the information session, in which
written information will be provided

February is a
time to reflect
on a part of
culture that has
pushed us to
Think of February and what comes to mind? Sweet romance,
candy, flowers and, oh yeah, it's a leap year too.
February is also Black History month.
It's a time to reflect on the African history of our culture.
But these reflections may not be so easy to come by when we
consider that the vast majority of Black history has been writ-
ten by Europeans and other non-Africans, and what we've been
taught in school may present skewed images of reality.
Luckily, America's society is opening its eyes, and the Afri-
can American culture is becoming more available to those who
seek it Groups such as Aliied Blacks for Leadership and Equal-
ity (ABLE), the opening of the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center
last fall and the office of minority affairs provide opportunities
for every ECU student to learn more about their own and other
According to Dr. Brian Haynes, director of minority affairs
at ECU, Black History Week was introduced by Carter G.
Woodson, also known as the father of negro history, in 1926.
This week was established in response to the segregation preva-
lent in America at the time. Woodson chose the month of Feb-
ruary because it is the birth month of historical figures Frederick
Douglas and Abraham Lincoln, signer of the Emancipation Proc-
Black History Week progressively evolved into Black His-
tory month in the late '60s, Haynes said.
When we think of prominent African American role mod-
els, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X may come to mind.
But did you know that street lights, golf tees and even ice cream
were invented by African Americans?
Considering the fact that Africans were in America before
Europeans, it may be time to learn about a culture long forgot-
ten or disregarded in the first half of this century. Our celebra-
tion of African culture will last throughout the month and sev-
eral activities are planned to bring awareness throughout the
The Ledonia Wright African American Cultural Center is
sponsoring at least six events, many of them free-of-charge.
Through these sessions, male and female students can learn
about self-love and relationships, focusing on the past to learn
about tne present And on Feb. 25, Clifton Davis will present
"God's Trombones For more information about how you can
get involved, pick up the phone and call the Ledonia Wright

It is the reason for creature
These insane binges for food are
present in women all over campus, let
alone in the world. For the purposes
of this article, the women of the sixth
floor of Green hall were kind enough
to share with me the most common
foods that satisfy them in this situa-
tion as well as others.
Let me first paint a picture. It's
10:45 on a Thursday night and Mindy
(not a real person so don't think that
it's you) is pacing around her room
binges for food
are present in
women all over
alone in the
wincing and complaining about any-
thing that crosses her mind. All of a
sudden a picture pops into her head.
The refrigerator, surrounded by a
glowing light, hovers over a cloud in
a vision that she has just seen.
Quickly, she rushes to it and reaches
for the first and, according to my most
valuable and wonderful source, most
important source of satisfaction -
An un-named source said that
"chocolate and P.M.S. go hand-in-hand
because chocolate satisfies another
important craving ,
After chowing down on a bag of
Hershey Kisses that Mindy kept in the
fridge, she reached again into the
depths and pulled out a can of peaches
which she proceeded to eat with
melted marshmailows on top.
I know, you're saying, "I know
somebody that lives in that dorm. Do
they do these things?" I'll tell you
right now that it is not just that dorm.
Next, with the knowledge that
the peach and marshmallow smores
did not do the job, she climbed over
the table behind her to grab a giant
jar of peanut butter which she eats
on the end of oourdough pretzels. As
sne scoops out the peanut butter, she
spies out of the corner of her eye, a
family size bottle of ranch dressing in
the doer of the refrigerator. Climbing
back over the table, she shoves a two
day old plate of French fries into the
microwave for two minutes and pulls
them out only to drown them in a
molten pouring of dressing.
At this point the average person
might think about stopping, but not
this one because she has been taken
over and is being controlled.
Finishing off even the Styrofoam
plate which held only a dribble,of
dressing, she pours an entire gallon
of milk into the sink, careful to plug
up the hole at the bottom and emp-
ties a box of fruity pebbles into it A
ladle provides the necessary tool for
this craving, and she is almost satis-
fied when she trips over a pile of pizza
coupons sitting on the floor in a two
She orders a pizza that she will
eat after she goes through all-of the
normal craving foods like popcorn,
donuts, French onion dip and potato
chips and finally, ice cream.
It is almost three o'clock in the
morning when Mindy decides that the
hole in her stomach has been appeased.
She shuts the door to the fridge whigh
was the only light source in the entire
room. It is now dark.
It is the opinion of this writer that
if women have to have P.M.S then they
deserve a little midnight chomping. So
chow down and don't let a silly little
man tell you that you're strange.
Well ladies, thumbs up?

Violence hits everyone
Move over Al Capone, here come
some really sinister and nasty people!
I couldn't help but read this
amazing article in Newsweek about
an upstart gang that's controlled by
its cult-like leader who, ironically
enough is sitting in a Chicago jail cell.
It almost sounds like another David
Koresh-Timothj McVeigh story, with
a few plot twists.
However, the thing that caught
my attention was the violence that this
mythical cultgang had administered
to those people that got in its way.
baseball bat beatings characterized by
making the transgressor look like a
"pumpkin head after the group had
finished its business. Sometimes the
punishments were worse. Not only
that but the leader of this regime, the
Gangster Disciples, are in jail and have
supposedly been there for 22 years,
convicted of murder.
It is really appalling to find out
that this murderer and cult leader he
been able to coerce minds and make
inner-city youth and aduits carry out
his orders as the supreme being. A
false deity, who's behind Illinois State
Penitentiary bars, that no one has ever
met can control the drug trade and
mastermind the killings of those
people in the CD's way. What kind of
person are we dealing with?
His name is not Adolph Hitler, but
it's very close. Larry Hoover is the
kingpin of all kingpins in Chicago,
very similar to his predecessor who
roamed the Chicago streets using
thuggery as a means of getting his
way. Now you find his heir apparently
looking to control Chicago once again.
Not so though, considering the
IRS's findings of a Chicago concert
promoters' financial files. This search
came up with resoundingly good in-
formation for the feds in the cracking
down of one of the biggest mid-west-
ernChicago drug cartels and more
importantly, super gangs. Not since
the Crips and the Bloods have we seen
this much press.
It's really a terrible thing consid-
ering the fact that this gang has more
of a mythical and cult-like presence
in the Chicago area and in approxi-
mately 35 states with more than
roughly 50,000 members roaming
One good thing about the
government's findings is that some
CD members and their devious leader,
now supposedly reformed, will stand
trial for drug conspiracy this week.
Isn't it nice to find that our govern
ment has ways of destroying these evil
gangs that only make our world an
often wretched place to live.
As this trial goes to court maybe
we will see some justice done. But if
not, don't cross the leaders of the
movement because you may end up
like Charles "Big Chuck" Dorsey, who
took over gang operations back in
August "Dorsey did not follow orders
and assumed he was higher than
Hoover, but that's treason said Chi-
cago police commander Donald
Hilbring, "apparently punishable by
Letters to the Editor
To the Editor,
Americans love their sports. Ev-
ery year millions of people set them-
selves in front of the TV to watch their
favorite sports: the Monday night
football, professional basketball, and
the baseball league. People dress up
in their favorite team's colors, fly their
flags, and cheer loudly for their fa-
vorite players. In American society,
sport has somewhat reached the po-
sition of religion. It is "the opium of
the masses Sport has its own ideol-
ogy, values, norms, hierarchy, and the
ways of worshipping its Gods.
Because United States is sic a
highly capitalized society, so are its
institutions organized like commercial
enterprises. The goal being to make
business as profitable as possible. In
modem world sport is a profitable en-
tertainment business in Which the
heroes and heroines of sport are the
stars of the show and so treated as
celebrities. They are admired and
emulated, glorified and identified
I appreciate a good, skilled sport
performance like I would appreciate
a delicious dinner with candle lights,
and good company. Being an athlete
all my life and competing in interna-
tional level (sic) for some years, I know
what it takes to get there. You have
to work harder than anybody else, be
ready to sacrifice and not to give up
when the first headwind drags you
down. But that is the case in every-
thing in life when you are aiming to
the top sic.
And yes, I agree it felt great when
I succeeded in a race and people came
up to me and told me they admire
what I do. But it never was because
of these people that I got up every
morning during the winter to go for
my one and a half hour run or two
hour cross-country skiing in freezing
temperatures. I did it because there
was something so important for me
in that short moment of solitude that
1 couldn't found sic anywhere else
in my life at that time.
The way sports are delivered and
consumed in a society depends exclu-
sively on that particular culture. Most
Americans love spectator sports over
others and that requires big crowds.
But look at Africans, for example, they
are the best middle and long distance
runners in the world but the only
crowd in the jungle to cheer them on
are the camels and zebras. For Afri-
cans sports is sic not dependent on
the fans but on their own determina-
In American society (and in many
other western societies) sport is what
it is because of the media. These two
institutions live in a highly symbiotic
relationship in which without the one
there won't be the other. Media, be-
ing the delivery system, is therefore
widely responsible for the way sports
are seen and interpreted by the audi-
ence. There is a growing concern
among lot sic of people, however,
that today's sports doesn't sic pro-
vide healthy role models for kids. Ath-
letes who get caught beating their
wives, trashing bars, insulting refer-
ees or having problems with drugs are
hardly worth admiring, let alone iden-
tifying with. Of course, these are only
some extreme cases, and there are also
lot sic of "true" sport heroes out
there who are responsible and who
care about their behavior in and out-
side the court. The point here is, how-
ever, that these athletes, although
they may be the best in the world in
their sport are just people like you
and me. They are not invincible or
untouchable. They can also fall like
you and me and they should be held
responsible for their actions like you
and me, which often is not the case.
People, and especially the media has
sic the tendency to put the athletes
on pedestal sic and treat them as
"larger than life" figures, human em-
bodiments of Gods on earth.
Athletes are unique like every
individual but they are in no sense
special. Tomorrow there will be a new
hero, and the next day Sport hero
as sic its best can help people in the
process of socialization by displaying
the values, norms, attitudes, and ap-
proved forms of behavior prevalent in
the society. As sic its worst, sport
shows the selfishness, immaturity,
anti-intellectualism, and incapability
to pursue equal opportunities for ev-
erybody. Modern spectator sports, no
matter how fun it is to watch, is sic
still just a game. A great show, which,
to put it crudely, doesn't produce any-
thing without which we couldn't live
if we had to.

his humble beginnings in the neigh-

Brooklyn, New York.
"I grew up on the nicest block in
the ghetto and was bused to a white
school in Brooklyn Rock said.
At the tender age of 18, Rock was
performing at New York's Comedy
Strip. Rock's performance was sup-
posed to be the final headlining act
but at the request of Eddie Murphy,
it was pushed up to earlier in the
evening. Murphy wanted to see the
young comic, and after the show, Rock
was invited to perform with Murphy
on his HBO special, "Uptown Comedy
"I started out in white comedy
dubs. There weren't any black ones,
so I think that's helped me to appeal
to both blacks and whites explained
Rock in a recent phone interview.
Since that initial break, Rock has
enjoyed exponential success in the
cut-throat world of stand-up comedy.
But Rock considers the turning point
of his career to be his tenure as a rep-
ertory cast member of "Saturday

characters as militant black talk show

into the game and sets up what seems
to be a fugitive film. You know, the
kind of movie where the murderers

Well, he kind of does that, but
somewhere along the way our hero-

man (listed in the credits as "The Old

Morrison did when he got together
at Ronnie Scott's London jazz club
with some of his close friends on
the third day of May, 1995. We were
in finals and Van was swinging.
Among those present at this live
jam were longtime Morrison
bandmates Georgie Fame (organ)
and Pee Wee Ellis (saxophone), who
have about as much renown in the
blues, jazz and soul scene as
Morrison does as a singer
songwriter. From arrangements to
solos to scats, their effect on this
record is felt across the board.
Morrison covers many of the
artists who influenced him in the
early days: Mose Allison ("Your Mind
is on Vacation" and "Don't Worry
About a Thing"), Louis Jordan
("Early in the Morning"), George &
Ira Gershwin ("How Long Has This

"A Drop in the Bucket" is
just what it claims to be: a very
tiny drop in the great scream-
ing bucket of American media
opinion. Take it as you will.
A great man died recently.
He wasn't a general, or a politi-
cian, or even a famous movie
star. In fact I'd be willing to bet
that most of my audience has
never even heard of him. But
that doesn't make Jerry Siegel
any less great.
Why? Because, while you
may not know the man, you most
certainly know his work. You
know the legacy he left America.
It's a heroic legacy, one that has
become synonymous with
America's highest ideals. But you
still don't know what I'm talk-
Does this ring any bells?
Look! Up in the sky!

Truth, justice and the
That's right, Jerry Siegel
was the creator of Superman. In
1938, he and artist Joe Shuster
(who died himself a few years
back) brought Superman to life
in the pages of Action Comics.
The release of that comic book
was a galvanizing moment in
American history; its import is
still being felt today.
Superman's impact on the
American comic book industry,
for example, is staggering.
Within a year of his debut Su-
perman comics were selling in
the millions, and he had
spawned a host of imitators. The
entire comics publishing indus-
try is built on a foundation laid
down by the Man of Steel. De-
cades of colorful superhero ad-
ventures have been published,
and every one of them is a Su-
perman story at the core. With-
out Siegel, Shuster and Super-
man, comic books probably
wouldn't exist today.
But the existence of the
American comic book industry
isn't what makes Siegel a great
man. Sure, comics are neat, and
to fans like myself they mean a
lot Siegel is a hero to me.
But all of America lost some-
thing when Jerry Siegel died,
whether you like comic books or
Superman is an important
figure in American popular cul-
ture. While he certainly wasn't
the first larger than life hero fig-
ure, he was definitely the larg-
est. Other heroes were crack
shots or good fighters. Super-
man could pick cars up over his
head! Bullets just bounced off
his chest! He could leap over tall
buildings in a single bound! Evil
didn't stand a chance.
America needed a hero like
that in 1938. We were still stag-
gering from the Great Depres-

The East Carolinian
Photos illustrate Nazi rise to power
LONDON (AP) - A huge collec-
tion of high-quality photographs
taken in Germany in the 1930s has
emerged in London after being
stored in a Dutch barn for more than
half a century.
The photos depict everyday life
before and after the coming to power
of dictator Adolf Hitler in 1933. They
reflect the speedy transition from the
tolerance of the Weimar Republic to
the tension of the Nazi era.
Scenes of children playing in
sunny meadows and frolicking young
lovers, as well as the hard times when
over 5 million people were unem-
ployed, gave way to images of young
aviators, marches and parades. There
are uniforms, loudspeakers on street
corners, construction of the
Autobahn and portraits personifying
Hitler's ideal of the Aryan race.
Within four months after Hitler
is made chancellor, a patriotic farmer
near Munich scattered chicken feed
in the shape of a gigantic swastika,
the Nazi emblem. The camera clicked
as the flock of white birds spreads
out to peck at the corn.
Within a year, a photographer
snapped a ballerina performing be-
fore a selection board which includes
a man in Nazi party uniform.
Other photos express the Ger-
man interest in work and technology:
nuns use the telephone, brew beer,
mill grain and operate an X-ray ma-
chine; workers put on waders and
descend into the massive Berlin sew-
ers through which they can walk up-
right, go by boat and even ride bi-
Some 150 of the photos were on
show at the Royal Festival Hall and
have transferred to the Royal Photo-
graphic Society in Bath.
The photos formed the stock of
the Klinsky picture agency set up in
Amsterdam about 1930 to distribute
pictures from Berlin agencies to the
Dutch press. It ceased activity at the
end of World War II.
The stock was bought from a
Dutch dealer by Timothy Prus, cura-
tor of the Archive of Modern Con-
flict in London, a privately owned col-
lection of 200,000 images of military
and social affairs from the 1880s to
1990, mostly amateur photos, films
and snapshot albums, as well as pro-
Prus travels the world looking
for such photos and said the stock
was in good condition, having been
sealed in boxes and stored in a dry
barn in Dordrecht near Amsterdam
"There is still a lot to find out
about it. We don't even know
Klinsky's first name or whether that
was his real name Prus said in an
"The Klinsky stock contains
27,580 photos. I know because I
counted every one said Ian Jeffrey,
a free-lance art historian who orga-
nized the exhibition.
He began work on it when
London's South Bank Center arts
complex asked him to curate a photo
show of the dictator era in Germany,
Italy and Russia as part of its "Art
and Power" exhibition on the same
theme at its Hayward Gallery. The
photo project was canceled when
funds ran out, but as Jeffrey had com-
pleted the German part, that was
mounted separately at the center's
neighboring Royal Festival Hall.
The Klinsky stock contains 700
to 800 photos taken by the late Alfred
Eisenstaedt, who worked in Berlin and
who left Germany in 1934. He later
became famous in the United States
working for Life magazine.
Eric Borchert, who worked for
the same agency as Eisenstaedt and
later became a war photographer with
the German army, specialized in pho-

This is a jazz album. In fact, it's

usual Poiydor (although both labels

And not only that, he embraced
American ideals and made them his

That's a powerful cultural mes-

they were just two Jewish kids who
wanted to make a living doing comic
books. But they did it anyway.
Few fictional characters have
been around as long as Superman.

comic book writer. We lost a man
who gave America an important part
of its cultural heritage. We lost some-

win after a disappointing loss to UNC-Charlotte, and they came away with a close one when they defeated the Lady
Seahawks of UNC-W 60-57 in CAA play this past Friday in the Port city.
Donovan's troops vere led by junior shooting guard Justine Allpress who registered 17 points four assists,
two steals and one rebound. Following close behind Allpress was center Tomekia Blackmon with 11, and Danielle
Charlesworth who added 10 points of her own.
ECU led at the half 36-30 by shooting 52 from the field and a much improved 83 from the charity stripe.
The Lady Bucs continued their percentage by finishing the game 25-50 from the floor and 6-7 from the free throw

NFC holds on to deny a late AFC comeback
HONOLULU (AP) - For Brett
Favre, being surrounded by a group of
"West Coasters" proved advantageous.
For Jim Harbaugh, another opportu-
nity to add to his "Captain Comeback"
heroics fell short - not once, but twice.
It was only a simple one-yard out
pattern, but Favre, the NFL's player of
the year from Green Bay, made the
most of it by drilling a pass to San
Francisco's Jerry Rice that gave the
NFC a lead it never relinquished in
Sunday's 20-13 victory over the AFC
in the Pro Bowl.
"I was in synch with Jerry (Rice)
said Favre, even though they worked
together for only a week. "There were
times when a play was called, I just
knew where he'd be as I've done with
Robert (Brooks of the Packers) dur-
ing the season. Even though he wasn't
the primary guy, I hit him with several
"The touchdown was jusjt a simple
out by Jerry, a one-on-one with man
coverage, and he beat his guy so good
I just had to hit him. It was easy
Rice, voted the game's most valu-
able player, seconded Favre's rationale.
"I think Favre knew that I would
be there the wide receiver said.
"When I looked back, I didn't see him;
I just saw the ball. We run a similar
kind of offense at San Francisco, so I
didn't have to do too much thinking
That Favre-Rice combination
stemmed from the "West Coast of-
fense which Green Bay coach Mike
Holmgren helped develop while an as-
sistant with the 49ers.
It was different for Harbaugh, who
pulled off several game-ending victo-
ries for Indianapolis during the regu-
Given two opportunities to at least
tie the score with two minutes left in
the game, Harbaugh couldn't pull it
off. First he threw an interception from
the NFC 8 and then misfired on three
passes from the 14, including missing
a wide open Tim Brown of Oakland in
the end zone as time ran out
Harbaugh was more upset about
the interception than the incompletion.
"He was covered the quarter-
back said of his receiver. "I tried to
throw it high, giving him a chance to
catch it It got tipped right up and in-
Tim McDonald of the 49ers picked
it off in the end zone to stop that threat
but the AFC defense held on downs to
force an NFC punt and give Harbaugh
another shot at a score.
A 36-yard pass to New England's
Ben Coates put the ball on the 14 with
47 seconds left but after spiking the
ball to stop the clock, Harbaugh threw
consecutive incompletions, including
the game-ending overthrow to Brown.
Had the AFC scored, coach Ted
Marchibroda of the Colts said he would
have settled for a tie and not gone for
a two-point conversion.
Harbaugh's miscues earlier in the
game resulted in 10 points for the NFC.
Ken Harvey of Washington picked
off a pass and returned it 36 yards for
a touchdown late in the second quar-
