Need for financial aid increases

due to the rising cost of a college

Computer misuse on rise
of proper conduct
Jacqueline D. Kellum
Students who enjoy playing with
the computers in any of the numer-
ous labs around campus are aware of
the many services and features that
the computers have to offer. Some
students are now using the Internet
to plagiarize or cheat on their school-
work, which is a cause of concern to
professors and administration.
Karen Boyd, the assocaiate dean
of students expressed her concern
over the increasing trend toward com-
puter misuse, which is beginning to
be prosecuted in some college judi-
cial systems. Just last semester at UNC
Chapel Hill a student was caught us-
ing an on-line service to cheat in a
class and went to the campus honor
There have been cases involving
computer misuse at ECU. although
not necessarily plagiarism.
"I've been here two years, and
I've been having cases like this from
day one Boyd said.
Boyd says it is important that stu-
dents realize that anything done on
the computer, especially the e-mail, is
subject to retrieval and is considered
"Anything you type on e-mail has
the potential to be brought back up.
It may not be able to be retrieved in
it's entirety, but in partiality it can be
This is an especially relevant con-
cern for students who use the com-
puter here on campus, where that
material is considered the property of

tation, and it is the right of the com-
puter owner to have it Students need
to realize that It is the universicy's

Web sites such as "Evil House of
Cheat" and "School Sucks" have made
it easier than ever for students to use
the Internet to invent new ways to
cheat These sites offer student term
papers just waiting I o be downloaded.
Boyd said that so far there have not
been any plagiarism cases at ECU, but
there have been other cases of un-
ethical computer use.
There are ways you could haze
or harass over the computer. We have
had a harassment violation Boyd
said. "We've had students who have
posted stories of things that happened
that are not true
The harassment case was adjudi-
cated, and there was a hearing held,
but Boyd could not comment further.
So far. there has not been any
change in campus policy or the judi-
cial system because the current poli-
cies are considered adequate for any
action that needs to be taken.
"We have not written a special
code for this, because everything in
the handbook covers, in general, stu-
dent behavior Boyd said.
Students need to be aware of all
the dangers and pitfalls of using e-
mail, the Internet and especially us-
ing the Net as a source for schoolwork.
While some information taken off the
Internet is considered research, some
of it is just plain cheating.

President Clinton approved the nation's toughest crack-
down on tobacco directly affecting farmers in the eastern
part of North Carolina. With ECU sitting in the heart of
tobacco country, students whose families depend on to-
bacco money for their livelihood are undoubtedly follow-
ing the situation closely.
While it is important to remember that this university
lies in the middle of the conflict and has been shaped by
students and educators alike whose families depend on
tobacco, it is not necessarily appropriate to curse every-
thing that attempts to regulate the industry.
For example, the recent crackdown on tobacco is an
effort to reduce teen smoking by classifying nicotine as
an addictive drug. Now the Food and Drug Administra-
tion (FDA) will be able to regulate the advertising and
availability of tobacco products.
Just because tobacco is king in eastern North Carolina
doesn't mean that we want the industry to have the free-
dom to target advertisements towards youths. Tnese new
regulations would prevent selling cigarettes in vending
machines. Who can protest this? There are no beer and
liquor vending machines which underage buyers can pur-
chase alcohol from.
Lawmakers from across the state were furious at the
"The president is declaring war on 76,000 North Caro-
linians who gain their livelihood in one form or another
from tobacco Sen. Jesse Helms, RN.C. said.
Tobacco farmers are worried that this is the first step
in a series of government regulations that may ruin the
industry. Still, comments like Helms' are overstated. This
step in itself is a step towards protecting children from a
life long addiction whose complications often result in
Underage smoking doesn't have the same taboo asso-
ciated with it as underage drinking does. Unfortunately,
since nicotine is an addictive substance, and it is generally
more accepted by society than other addictive drugs,
youths easily fall prey.
The new classification of nicotine as an addictive sub-
stance is an encouraging step towards addressing the seri-
ousness of the problem of underage smoking.
Anything derogatory to the tobacco industry is not
popular in this area. However, neither should anything be
popular in this area that promotes underage smoking.

Dole sells his soul
In this rosiest of election years
for the Democrats, the Radical Right
is frantically trying to indict President
Clinton in the court of public opin-
ion. What I hear over and over again,
just like a broken record is this char-
acter issue. Well, I'd like to throw a
new album on the turntable; how
about the lack of character exhibited
by Bob Dole?
First Bill Clinton is being unfairly
attacked for the drug problems we
have today. It's true that youth drug
use has skyrocketed, but can we re-
ally blame the president? Clinton has
increased funding for drug prevention
and rehabilitation, so to blame Clinton
for this is like blaming Governor Hunt
for those darn potholes on U.S. 264.
He is doing everything humanly pos-
sible to counteract this trend, but Bob
Dole still has the g to use this is-
sue as a political football. Well, Mr.
Dole, watch out for the fumble.
Dole is also shamelessly attack-
ing the Clinton White House for be-
ing a house of drug abuse horrors.
Besides the fact that these ridiculous
allegations have no evidence or sub-
stance behind them, it's outrageous
for him to talk about drug abuse. As
the Senate Republican leader in 1992,
Dole defended a republican nominee
to the Treasury that had used cocaine
as well as marijuana. All you smok-
ers know that Bob Dole is sympathetic
to your cause (he equated smoking
with drinking milk), but now. cocaine
junkies and crack users can take so-
lace in knowing that Senator Dole
stands behind you. My point is, if you
Dob is ah
Housi for being
a house of drug
are going to defend coke users, then
don't engage in cheap political drug
attacks on a White House that has
spent billions of dollars in trying to
end this problem.
Secondly, let's talk about this
supply-side economic crap that Mr.
Dole is trying to pass off on us like
Grandmother's fruitcake. What am I
talking about? Well, Mr. Dole wants
a tax cut to the tune of over $500
billion. Sounds great, but how can
anyone with the IQ of a salad bar (or
hopefully higher) actually buy that he
can simultaneously balance the bud-
get, cut over half a trillion dollars in
taxes, and not cut social security and
medicare. 1 got news for you, Bob.
There is no way in hell your program
could be paid for, not even with the
most liberal estimates of economic
growth. 1 know my Economics pro-
fessors are probably losing it right
about now, but the god-awful disas-
ter that Ronald Reagan created is in
danger of coming back again.
Yes, things were good in the 80's,
but that was because his policies of
short-term gains really screwed up our
country in the long run For one
thing, under Reagan's tutelage, we
had the largest disparity of income in
our history. Am I biased? Probably,
but conservative author Kevin Phillips
and former Reagan budget director
David Stockman aren't, and they
agree with my general premise: That
Reaganomics was an unfortunate
Listen, I know President Clinton
has his problems, but all these things
that are being thrown against him
(Whitewater, the FBI files, etc) are
unsubstantiated, unproven and likely
untrue. There isn't one scintilla of evi-
dence that directly implicates the Presi-
dent or the First Lady in Whitewater.
Don't forget that Gennifer Flowers and
Paula Jones were paid by the Republi-
can party to come forward with their
stories. I think that most of us can see
through all the fog and the mist and
come to a basic conclusion: Like any-
one, President Clinton isn't perfect but
he isn't the monster the Republicans
want you to think he is. It is my hope
that you all decide your candidate on
the issues, and not some crap in the
Enquirer. Since President Clinton de-
livered on his promises to reform wel-
fare, to give us more jobs (10 million
more), to cut the deficit in half, and to
not let the Republicans touch student
loans, I know whe I'm voting for. Do

Those of you who didn't want to fork out cash to see Twister, one
of this summer's biggest cinematic blockbusters, will get one last chance
to see this roller-coaster film on the big screen, and it wont cost you
one red cent Hendrix Theatre, ECU's premier movie theater, will have
free showings of Twister Thursday-Saturday at 8 p.m making this the
best movie deal around.
While a film centering on a couple of love-torn tornado chasers
may result in a lame script with cliched characters, it also results in
some breathless action sequences filled with state-of-the-art special ef-
Director Jan DeBont who managed to make Keanu Reeves some-
what exciting in Speed, makes the most of his special effects team and
creates an intensely fun brain-candy film that must be seen on the big
screen. Trust me, Twister will not be nearly as impressive once it's
released on video.
Fans of the hit TV show Mad About You will get an extra joyful
kick watching Helen Hunt (who gives the film's most likable perfor-
mance) face down one killer tornado after another.
So, if you have any desire to give Twister a chance, hop on down
to Mendenhall Student Center sometime between Thursday and Satur-
day. Twister should prove to be a great film to watch with a theater full
of rowdy Pirates.
Starting at 4 p.m Skeeter Brandon & Highway 61 will be playing all your favorite blues and
R&B tunes during the F.A.N. (Friday All-Nighter) Club meeting in Mendenhall Student Center.

Frog Legs It's the perfect name
for thif band. They're skinny, ugly,
and make me turn green. Their mu-
sic is humorous, yet silly, and that's
the problem. It's too sarcastic. The
band really doesn't seem to give a
damn, and it makes me wonder
whether to love them or hate them.
Unfortunately for them, this is
not love at first sight. The band seems
too childish. Listening to their album,
Midnight Radio, is like hearing a five-
year-old jam out a Phish tune. It just
The disc starts out with people
making the most ungodly noises I've
ever heard. How can you get into a
groove where there are people cluck-
ing like chickens?
And there's net too much to say
about the originality of each of the
songs on the album, either. You could
say that all of them are different; how-
ever, they all seem to have one thing
in common - they all sound like ass!
There are some positive things
about the band, however. Wrenn Mag-
num, the lead vocalist, has a good
vocal range that streaks from Presley
to Prince. If he were in a serious
band, people would see him for the
singer that he is. Other band mem-
bers include Morgan Huff (drums).
Tom IUmensee (electric and classical
guitar), and Turtle (bass). How cute.
Let's all get together and come up
with pet names, why don't we?
But let's not butter things up.
The band isn't exactly an emotion-
ally honest band. Frog Legs try too
hard to be comical on the album. It
will definitely make you laugh; the
problem is whether or not it's inten-
tional. This band is basically the
When Ween wants to be weird,
they can be weird. In fact, they're
almost the definition of the word.
They've done songs about spinal
meningitis, spaghetti western
themes, and happy tunes about little
daisies. It's even rumored that they
are the angry young guys behind the
pseudo-metallic punk rap out-
fit, the Moistboys. So if Ween wants
to dc something different musically,
where do they go? (
That's right, for their newest al-
bum, 12 Golden Country Greats, the
Ween brothers, Gene and Dean, de-
scended on the capitol of country
music for inspiration and motiva-
tion. Not only have they employed
such notable Nashville session mu-
sicians as Pete Wade (guitar, dobro,
6-string bass), Russ Hicks (pedal
steel), and Charlie McCoy (bass, har-
monica, percussion, vibes, organ,
trumpet, tenor banjo, tuba) to help
them capture that certain twang for
this release, they also roped in the
quintessential country vocal group,
The Jordanaires, as back-up singers.
This sounds like the makings of
a phenomenal cowpoke album,
doesn't it? Well, it is and it isn't.
Ween just ain't normal, folks. From
the outset, it's easy to tell that some-
thing just isn't right. For one thing,
12 Golden Country Greats only con-
tains ten tracks. Song titles are also
a dead giveaway, since they run the
gamut from the strikingly normal
"I'm Holding You" and "Pretty Girl"
to the hilariously strange 'Help Me

Student Health Service
When students come to col-
lege, they often find themselves
responsible for things which
were previously of little concern.
Health care is a common ex-
ample. College students sud-
denly find themselves asking
questions about where to go
when feeling sick, experiencing
injury, or for other medical
needs. This column is designed
to address some common ques-
tions concerning the ECU Stu-
dent Health Service (SHS).
Question: I've heard all
sorts of stories about the qual-
ity of care at the SHS. Do stu-
dents find the care there satis-
Answer: Yes, ECU students
are generally satisfied with the
quality of care received from the
SHS. In a recent survey, ECU
students were asked "What was
your overall degree of satisfac-
tion with your recent SHS visit?"
Most students reported either
"good" (46 percent) or "excel-
lent" (44 percent) in reference
to the quality of care received.
It is interesting to note that SHS
conducts an ongoing quality as-
surance survey. Phone inter-
views are completed to assess,
monitor and continually improve
the services offered to students.
Students are also strongly en-
couraged to complete comment
cards that are available at SHS.
Question: If 1 am sick and 1
decide to come to the SHS, will
I have to pay to see a health care
Answer: Currently en-
rolled ECU students will
not be charged for an
office visit to see a
health care provider
at the SHS. A stu-
dent health fee is
part of the tuition
bill which covers m
the costs to see
health care provid-
ers at the SHS for
the semester. For ser-
vices such as gynecologi-
cal exams, medications, x- �
ray, lab and others, there are
small fees. As part of the educa-
tional process, it is important that
students become health care con-
sumers and compare prices between
the SHS and other offices and clin-
ics. Paying a lesser amount for medi-
cal services does not mean the stu-
dent is receiving less quality of care.
Question: I am a female student.
Why is it when I come to the SHS
for a sore throat, they ask me if I
Answer: This question may frus-
trate students, particularly if a stu-
dent feels assumptions are being
made about their personal sexual be-
havior. Asking female patients if
they are pregnant is a standard medi-
cal question that health care provid-
ers must ask. Pregnancy is a medi-
cal condition that affects treatment
options and care, particularly any
medications that might be pre-
scribed. The intended purpose of
this question is for medical reasons,
not to judge a student's sexual be-
What are the qualifications of
the medical staff at the SHS?
Answer: The members of
the medical staff come from di-
verse backgrounds and educa-
tion. SHS currently employs
physicians, psychologists, family
nurse practitioners, physician
assistants, registered nurses,
registered pharmacists, certified
lab and x-ray staff.
Question: What if I am sick
on the weekends? Where should
Answer: Many ECU stu-
dents are not aware of the fact
that the SHS is open both Sat-
urday and Sunday from 9 a.m.
until noon. Hours of operation
Monday through Friday are from
8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Question: What other ser-
vices does the SHS offer?
Answer: SHS offers a wide

The problem with comical
bands is that they fizzle out very
quickly. Sure it's amusing for a
while, but how funny is the same

into the "same song and dance"
foutine. When people hear some-
thing they like, they want to hear
it again. But it really lets people
down when they don't find the

title for the album. It probably has

watch the weather forecast
and if there is even a remote
chance of rain, take a pon-
cho. But no umbrellas, they
don't allow them inside the
Ponchos are inexpen-
sive and they keep the wa-
ter off of you. The players
and coaches still have to be
out there and they all can't
wear ponchos. I think it's
sort of fun to watch a game
in the rain, it adds to the
excitement. The football
game gets more challenging
for both sides and that is

said. "If we hadn't been to the Lib-
erty Bowl the last two years, I don't
know if we would be standing here
today. He has put our football pro-
gram on the map, we're nationally
recognized and the quality players
he has and quality staff he has. I
want to thank them
The determination of all in-
volved helped to bring Conference
USA to Greenville.
"If you have perseverance, it is
the grandest quality and that is the
quality that is here at East Caro-
lina University Logan said. "I am
so humbled and gratified to be a
part of this happening today be-
cause I am starting my eighth year
here and I've seen incredible
changes in eight years and I sus-
pect in the next eight that there
could be even more wonderful
things to happen
What this means for ECU, is
the opportunity to play for a con-
ference championship. That is
something ECU has not been able
to do since 1976, when they were
affiliated with the Southern Con-
ference. Since then, ECU has been
an independent team in Division I
"We're going to make this a

make it a great conference

everything we can every year to win
The national exposure ECU
will receive will increase when they
play next season, since Conference
USA's games are televised on na-

games on last week, Tulane and

and I am absolutely amazed at the
exposure, recognition and the ac
knowledgment we have received as !
a result of that national exposure
Anyone that has followed EQJ
football knows that these confer
ence talks have been taking place
for some time now. One factor that
helped to finalize the talks was the
support of the fans. If the Pirates j
didn't have the fan following thj;
have had to away games, especially
the two Liberty Bowl games, thin j
this might not have been made pos- j
"The fans have played such an 1
incredibly important role in the de-1
velopment of this program and the
emergence of this program as a na
tionally competitive football team
"I would really make a huge-
mistake today, if I didn't pay trib
ute to the fans that fill that stadium
week after week � who travel with �
us week after week Eakin said.
"Those who have stood by us
through the times when 3-8 sea-(
sons didn't seem as if they would 1
ever go away
That is also the sentiment ex
pressed by Hamrick who pays hom-t
age to the fans.
"I can stand here before youj
today and tell you this would have!
not happened without the East)
Carolina fans Hamrick said. "The!
commissioner and I met for about!
six hours in Memphis and if we had
only had about two or three thou
sand Pirate fans this past year for;
that Liberty Bowl, that meeting;
probably would have lasted about
an hour I
ECU will join the conference as!
a football member only. AH the
other varsity sports at ECU are af;
filiated with the Colonial Athletic;
Association, and Slive does not
anticipate ECU's other varsity,
sports joining Conference USA. !
"We have had no discussions)
and I certainly don't anticipate
any Slive said.
When play begins next season
ECU will match up against Cincin;
nati, Houston, Louisville, Memphis,
Southern Miss and Tulane. The win;
ner of the conference championship
will earn an automatic berth to the
Liberty Bowl. But that is nothing
new for the Pirates who have trav-
eled to Memphis the past two years
to compete - losing in 1994 to Illi
nois and winning last season
As far as Conference USA ex-
tending to more teams, Slive said
it is possible but will not happen
"We're now seven with the ad-
dition of East Carolina and I can
assure you that expansion will con-
tinue over the next several year$
and my hope is that we will not limit
ourselves to seven Slive said. !
So now, ECU can breathe a
little easier with its new affiliation.
It's what officials have been work-
ing for and now the hard work has
paid off. Conference USA will help
to boost our football to the top. j
"The Pirates have established
themselves as a Top 25 contender
and the best is yet to come and that
best of what is yet to come is going
to come with Conference USA.t
Slive said. "If anyone has any
doubts just look at their bowl
records, look at who they play and
look at last year's win in the Lib-
erty Bowl over Stanford

I opponent on their 1996 schedule, and
ETSU would just love to come into Green-
viHe and leave with a major upset. ECU
players have been forewarned that they
better be ready to play on Saturday.
"ETSU is just another team that we
are trying to get past sophomore nose
guard Travis Darden said. "Until you men-
tioned it, I had forgot that they were a
Division l-AA team. We are trying to win
one game at a time
ECU is also ready to face someone
else other than their teammates. Senior
free safety David Hart can't wait until
"We've been ready for the past two
weeks, and we just can't wait to get out
there on Saturday and play the game
ETSU got their season kicked off last
Thursday as the Buccaneers defeated Lib-
erty 24-20 in Johnson City. A key player
in that game was senior quarterback Greg
Ryan. Ryan connected on 22 of 34 passes
for 229 yds and a touchdown. Ryan has
broken every major passing record at
ETSU, including passing yards with 6,010.
Ryan's favorite targets seem to be
sophomore wide receiver Marcus
Satterfield, and junior B J. .Adigun.
Satterfield caught seven passes for 65
yards and two touchdowns against Liberty.
Satterfield and Ryan know each other very
The two have been playing football
together since they were both members
of the midget league football programs in
Greenback, Tenn. Adigun, a pre-season All-
Southern Conference cl.oicc, had seven
catches for 96 yards against Liberty.
On defense, ETSU is led by senior
defensive end James Russell. Russell was
named pre-season All-Americar by the
Sporting News. The St. Augustine, Fla.
Native holds the Buccaneers career records
for tackles for a loss with 47 and sacks
A major concern for ECU going into
the season opener was who would fill the
void on defense left when Dwight Henry
was lost for the season at right cornerback
with an ACL injury to his knee. His re-
placement looks to be red-shirt freshmen
The Clemson, S.C. native had been
battling junior Tabari Wallace for the job.
Elsewhere on defense, junior Matt
Semenza has earned a start at outside
linebacker. Semenza will be sharing time
with senior B.J. Crane.
On offense, the only question going
into Saturday's game is how would the
running game respond with the loss of
Jerris McPhaii. McPhail rushed for 943
yards last season and is now showcasing
his talents on Sundays as a member of
the Miami Dolphins.
Coach Logan and his staff gave the
nod to sophomore Scott Harley. Harley is
no stranger to the ECU offense. Last sea-
son, the Neptune, N.J. native filled in for
an injured McPhail in the Temple game
and rushed for 175 yards, an ECU fresh-
man record. Quarterback Marcus Crandell
will be starting his final season in Green-
ville, and Crandell, who has broken almost
every major passing record at ECU, has a
lot of respect for this Buccaneer defense.
"Their secondary is tough Crandell
said. "They play soft coverage, and they
mix it up a lot
Look for the Pirates not to underesti-
mate the Buccaneers on Saturday. ECU
knows that they are still trying to gain
national respect, and a let down on Sat-
urday would be a major blow to a team
that is trying to prove something each and
every football game.
If the Pirates need any incentive on
Saturday, they need just to look back to

The End Zone
Final season for Crandell
End Zone Co-Editor
He has been praised as one of the
best quarterbacks in the country. ESPN's
Lee Corso dubbed him his "Superpick
Quarterback" for the year. Who is he? You
know exactly who he is. Marcus Crandell.
Going into this season, Crandell
knows that the expectations are high for
the defending Liberty Bowl champs.
"This year there is a lot more anxiety
that has been built up from last year's
season Crandell said. "We want to have
a better outcome as far as the record is
A better outcome for the players
would be to go undefeated. A light home
schedule should provide easy wins at
Dcwdy-Fkklen Stadium, while a tough
road schedule could give the Pirates some
"Games that we are for sure that we
can win, we have to make those wins as
good as possible, and try to prepare for
the next game Crandell said.
Crandell, who has surpassed two of
Jeff Blake's records (the Cincinnati
Bengal's starting QB) with 5,463 career
passing yards and 6,026 yards for total
offense needs just two more TD's to also
go ahead of Blake's career TD passes.
But as this first team QB for the 1995
All-Independent team knows, records can
be a huge motivation in a performance.
However, Crandell admits that once he hits
the field, those records are the furthest
thing from his mind.
"It doesn't enter my mindCrandell
said. "It's a motivating factor but I don't
think about it and when I broke records
last year I didn't even know that I had
broken them until after the came when
people told me
Because of the strong performances
Crandell has displayed the past two sea-
sons, he has been recognized as one of
the top quarterbacks in the country. For
example, in Football News he was listed
as one of five players nationally in a group
labeled "Players Worth price of Admis-
sion In other publications, Crandell h�
been recognized as one of the elite in the
QB position, but he still thinks he has to
show how good he really is.
"In the eyes of some people they
don't see me as that good and I still have
something to prove
This ECU team which is typically a
passing team will have to look to run the
ball more this season, and Crandell real-
izes that a lot of the ground yardage will
depend on him just as much as it will on
his running backs.
"We have to establish a running game
regardless, whether it be 90 percent pass-
ing and 10 percent running or 50-50
Crandell said. "We have to establish a run-
ning game to keep our passing game up
As with every player, obstacles are
met - and usually overcome. Crandell said
he didn't have just one hurdle to jump
over; he had two.
"When I first jjot here, being a
redshirt freshman and having to be thrown
into a system that is so hard to learn and
get it down pat to where I have it right
now Crandell said.
The second came just six quarters into
his career, in 1993, when a Central Florida
player took a cheap shot that resulted in
Crandell suffering a broken leg.
"I wondered if I would get back to
100 percent, where I was going to be able
' to play again
Much of the talk surrounding ECU
football has been the lack of respect from
the pollsters. The discrepancy In ratings
with different polls showed that really
nobody took a close look at the incred-
ible season the Pirates produced.
The AP Poll, which is regarded as
football's most prestigious poll, ranked the
� Pirates only 26th. That's right. They were
,the only 9-3 team with a bowl victory not
to make it into the top 25. It's a ghost
Crandell will finish this season as ECU'S all-time leader in career
passing yardage, career offense and career touchdown passes.
that the players are playing against, but
it's not something that is the most impor-
tant thing going into this season.
"I worry, but I don't worry about it,
because I know in my mind and my heart,
and I think I speak for a lot of guys on
the team that we're better than a lot of
the teams they picked before us Crandell
said. "All we have to do is just keep striv-
ing for the achievement and set our levels
of standard a little higher than last year
So what's next for Crandell after the
season? The answer is obvious, the pros.
But he isn't looking too far down the
road just yet. He knows he must concen-
trate on leading his team to victory and
focusing on his final season with the Pi-

Richards proves versatile
End Zone Writer
In the complex offensive mind of
Steve Logan, his well oiled machine calis
for a strong receiving corps. In a short
passing game like ECU'S, a strong tight
end mtist accompany speedy wide outs
in order to be successful. None better to
fill this spot than senior tight end Scott
With a short passing game, a great
number of patterns are in the middle of
the defensive secondary, and a big tar-
get is needed to complete some passes
in a sea of linebackers. Richards, at S'5"
260 pounds, is one of the bigger tight
ends in division one football, and has
become a huge threat in Logan's offense
in the past two seasons.
"We are very comfortable with our
tight end situation with Scott Richards
Logan said. "I feel we have one of the
most underrated tight ends in the coun-
He might be underrated, but his stats
are not. Last season, the rumbling tight
end gathered 33 passes for 341, yards
which placed him fourth among Pirate
"I've worked hard to improve the
past two years, and I look forward to
improving again this season Richards
Richards impressed coaches and fans
alike the past two campaigns starting in
every game lest season, including the
southern Miss contest where he caught
four passes for 62 yards and two touch-
downs in the victory over the Golden
Eagles. Now when you talk to Pirate fans
about Richards, the first thing out of their
mouths is reliable. From his 93-yard gutsy
performance at the Carrier Dome at Syra-
cuse to being the leading receiver in the
Liberty Bowl victory, when the Pirates
needed a big reception big number 90
would some how show up on the play.
Richards, recruited out of high school as
a quarterback, has a valuable ability of
reading defenses as well as being able
to anticipate QB Marcus Crandell's next
"I'm a former quarterback, so read-
ing defenses is something I've been able
to do Richards said. "Also, it helps me
understand what Marc wants me to do
and where he wants me to be on certain
Richards has proven to be versatile
and reliable as a receiving tight end,
blocking tight end, or even a blocking
full back in short yardage situations.
"What ever it takes to win, I'm will-
ing to do my part to help the team out in
anyway I can Richards said.
Being a team player, the biggest as-
piration for Richards this season is to
earn the respect of poll voters who
shunned the Bucs last seasons.
"Last year was great, but it's over
Richards said. "We've gotten to the bowl,
we've won a bowl, now we've need to
bring the program to another level and
be recognized as a national class pro-
It's old news to Pirate fans when it
comes to being shunned by the Associ-
ated Press poll, but last season hurt a
touch more after winning nine games as
weil as snagging the Liberty Bowl title
from Stanford in the Bucs' second
straight appearance in Memphis.
"For them to rank us 26 was disap-
pointing, especially to me, because we
knew after all the hard work we deserved
a better ranking than 26 Richards said.
"This year it's our goal to do like coach
(Logan) says and just win the next game,
prove that East Carolina football deserves
to be in the top twenty five
The drive for the top twenty five will
no doubt be steered by many, including
Richards. This quest will begin next week
at home for the Pirates, much to the avail
of Richards, a senior majoring in Indus-

The End Zone
Burns turns up the heat for '96
End Zone Co�dttor
M there was ever anyone on the ECU
football team that symbolizes the word
player, it would be senior Lamont Bums.
As a freshman writer for The East Caro-
linian back in 1993,1 had a chance to
interview Lamont for the first time. I
have seen Lamont not only mature as a
player, but also as a person.
Lamont Bums has definitely had his ups
and downs as a Pirate. Bums was recruitc1
by former ECU head coach Bill Lewis in 1992
out of Page High School in Greensboro. As
a high school senior he recorded 55 tack-
les, and recovered seven fumbles. Although
ECU had a coaching change, Bums still de-
cided that ECU was the place for him to
continue his football career. The times have
been rocky at some points, but Bums said
he has never regretted his choice to come
"I would not chanqe any decisions that
I have made at ECU Burns said. "The things
that have happened to me here has made
me a stronger person today
After red-shirting in 1992, and receiv-
ing the Outstanding Defensive Scout Team
Award, Burns played in all 11 games at de-
fensive end during the dismal 2-9 season in
1993. However, things changed in the spring
of 1994. The coaching staff decided to move
Bums to tight end, a position he really never
got comfortable with. When fall drills began
in 1994, Burns moved to offensive guard
where he saw limited time in four games.
Then there came 1995. Bums started
to improve at offensive guard and by season's
start, had earned himself a starting posi-
tion at offensive guard, and by season's end
was named the most improved offensive
player He also had a Liberty Bowl champi-
onship to add to his career achievements.
Through all the position changes, and
the difficulties he went through, Bums cred-
its Coach Steve Logan for helping him
through the situation.
"Coach Logan has always been real to
me Bums said. "I wasn't performing up
to his potential on defense, so he made a
change. Every position change I made, Coach
Logan was very supportive
The next step for Burns could be pro
football, and he is receiving national atten-
tion. Several college football magazines have
listed him as a top offensive linemen, but
Bums knows that if pro football doesn't work
out he is ready for his future.
"It's just time to wait and see what hap-
pens Bums said, who has already gradu-
ated with a BA degree in Communications,
"i have already graduated, so I am ready for
One thing Burns is ready for is the '96
season. Bums and the Pirates still feel that
they are not getting the national respect that
they should, and the Associated Press Poll
Last season added salt to the wound. The
AP poll snubbed ECU out of the top 25, by
placing them at number 26.
"It bothered a lot of people Burns
said. "We think we deserved to be in the
ECU opens this Saturday against East
Tennessee State, a team that some people
think the Pirates might overlook. But Bums
and his fellow teammates know better.
"At first I was worried that we might
overlook them Bums said. "But we have a
lot of seniors on this team and we know
that people have overlooked us before, and
were not going to let that happen on Satur-
One thing he is proud of is the fact that
he has been part of a program that has risen
into the national spotlight in recent years.

program more visible on the national
The final regular season piece to his
puzzle will end on November 30 in Char-
lotte against the N.C. State Wolfpack, a
team that Pirate fans have been waiting to
see ECU play for a long time.
"I came in after the Peach Bowl game,
and everybody has been waiting for this
one for a long time since Burns said. "It's
going to be a bam burner
