ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
For the past three weeks,
many residents of Belk and
Tyler residence halls have been
experiencing flickering phone
"Sometimes we'll pick up

anything, not even a dial tone
said Carol Smith of Belk Hall.

University Housing Services, along with the
Daily Reflector, hopes to bring the news closer to
students. The program, which is now in its testing
stage, provides students at various residence halls
access to two newspapers, the Daily Reflector and
This program originated at Pennsylvania State
University after studies revealed that students still
value news print over all other forms of informa-
tive sources, including the Internet and television.
"It is a lot more convenient said Sharon Evans,
student. "You can read a paper when you .have
downtime betweeeWclasses and When yon don't
have access to a news network
The papers can be picked up at Belk, Tyler, Gar-
ret and Fletcher. These four residence halls were
specially selected; they determine an accurate cross
section of students from different sexes and class
In its second week running this program, the
Dairy Reflector has tabulated a daily usage rate of
approximately 50 percent.
Brandy Hatchett, student, was surprised when
she discovered the program.
"One day the papers were just there Hatchett
said. "It was a nice surprise being able to get such
an asset free of charge
The pilot period is expected to last until Janu-
ary. At that time a decision will be made to either
bring the project to Its full scale or to terminate it.
Currently the papers are compliments of both the
Daily Reflector and USA Today. However, If the pro-
gram is successful, the university will take on the
costs at a reduced rate.
"It's a great program for college students said
Asa Doolittle, freshman. "Often there is this mis-
conception that we're uninterested in the news,
but it's not true
"To be honest, I never cared about actually read-
ing the paper before said sophomore Lisa Dozier,
"but now I like the fact that it's right there, and I
really do look at it more than I ever did before
Barbara Kuetemeyer, circulation sales manager
for the Daily Reflector, said that their paper encour-
ages students to get Involved and correspond with
their office. They want to hear student feedback.
For example, the paper is delivered on the campus
five days a week, but if students would like to have;
weekend issues, the paper would comply.

students because it gives them access not only

WASHINGTON (AP) � A relief co-pilot
alone in the EgyptAir cockpit said "I made
my decision now; I put my faith in God's
hands" just before the jetliner began its fatal
plunge, officials close to the investigation said
Wednesday. Moments after the plane began
to dive, the pilot returned to struggle � fu-
tilely � to pull out.
As Egyptian officials won time to send
their own experts to review the cockpit voice
recorder tape, a federal law enforcement offi-
cial and other sources close to the investiga-
tion described the evidence on Wednesday
that led the United States to the verge of put-
ting the FBI in charge of the inquiry as a po-
tential criminal matter.
The current theory of the fate of EgyptAir
990, the Boeing 767 that plunged into the
Atlantic Ocean off Massachusetts killing 217
people, is both tentative and incomplete, the
law enforcement official stressed. Further elec-
tronic enhancement of the tape recording and
input from the Egyptian experts could alter
the sketchy understanding of what went on.
With no sign of any mechanical malfunc-
tion or explosion, investigators have been
drawn to actions of the crew as captured on
the cockpit voice recorder and synchronized
with the plane's movements preserved in the
flight data recorder.
The law enforcement official, comment-
ing only on condition of anonymity, and
other sources close to the case gave this ac-
count what those recorders show:
Relief co-pilot Capt. Gameel el-Batouty,
scheduled to take over much later in the 11-
hour New York-to-Cairo flight, enters the
cockpit and asks to fly. His request is accepted.
The cockpit door is opened later, after
which there is no conversation, leading in-
vestigators to conclude el-Batouty is alone.
He says in Arabic: "I made my decision
now. I put my faith in God's hands
Shortly thereafter, the autopilot is turned
off and the jet begins to descend steeply from
The cockpit door opens again. Investiga-
tors believe the pilot, Capt. Ahmed
Mahmoud el-Habashy, has returned because
he is heard to ask what's going on. They be-
lieve he tries to regain control because he is
heard to say, "PuH with me. Help me. Pull
with me There is no sound of struggle, but
some investigators believe that phrase is said
in an argumentative tone.
At about this time, there is an unusual
split in the plane's elevators: One moves up
and the other down. These flaps on either
side of the tail usually move up or down in
unison to lower or raise the plane's nose.
Boeing has told investigators crew mem-
bers must apply SO pounds of pressure in
opposite directions on the pilot's and co-
pilot's control yokes to achieve this split out-
come. Investigators surmise this may be evi-
dence of a struggle between two crew mem-
bers over how to respond to the steep dive.
Shortly thereafter the jet's two engines are
shut off. The plane regains some altitude,
stalls and drops into the sea.
In Egypt, relatives angrily rejected any
notion el-Batouty planned to commit suicide,
described him as a loving father of five and
denied the family had financial problems.
Family members said el-Batouty had just
bought two automobile tires in the United
States for his son's car and they believed the
tires were on Flight 990.

Take a stand; reduce racism
I grew up in a time when racism
and discrimination seemed to be the
natural order. I remember traveling
on the Trailway busses when I was a
boy of 8 or 9 years old. If I wanted
something to eat, I had to go to the
back of the station and order my
food from a small window. I had to
eat the food as best I couid.
You see, I could not eat inside
the bus station which had chairs
and tables and a counter where
people ordered their food and ate
in a relaxing atmosphere. I could
not sit and eat because the tables,
chairs and counter were on the
Whites Only side of the station and
coloreds were not allowed to ven-
ture into that domain. Racism was
alive and well, and was the order
of the day.
I write this today because those
harsh memories of man's inhuman-
ity to man are recycled when I ob-
served a table in Wright Plaza seek-

I had heard of discriminatory
practices such as requiring a nonex-
istent membership for African-
Americans or a "pants too baggy"
excuse for denying entrance to Af-
rican-Americans. I had heard that
African-American students visiting
the clubs with their white "friends"
were often turned away because of
these discriminatory practices
while their white friends were al-
lowed to enter. I would first ques-
tion why a "friend" would leave me
on the outside of a club that had
denied me entrance instead of
making a statement against dis-
crimination by not patronizing
such an establishment.
There are many other issues that
can be addressed in this regard but I
choose to leave that with others. My
purpose for writing on this subject
is to bring an awareness to the situa-

not exist in 1999. As we approach
the new millennium. I would be re-

all young students would party less
and study more. That, of course is
an old guys opinion. Although, I
feel this way, I will defend anyone's

As members of the ECU family,
we can make a strong statement
against this kind of discrimination
and insensitivity. We need to come
together, as students, to address this
issue because injustice anywhere is
a potential for injustice everywhere.
One of my oft-repeated state-
ments is, "As students, we are the
most important people here
A message needs to be sent out
that will let those who discriminate
know that if one of the members of
the ECU family is hurt, every mem-
ber feels that pain. We are about heal-

Remembering beginnings of NCSU-ECU rivalry
about who was present at the worst drubbings ever
imparted upon the beloved Pirates.
Jeff Blake, the only speck of talent to grace ECU'S
football team since Cro-Magnun man died off, and
Bill Lewis, the only ECU coach who could plot strat-
egy above the little-league level, moved on to
greener pastures after ECU reached the pinnacle of
its less than blinding brilliance in its 37-34 victory
over the Wolfpack in the 1992 Peach Bowl. As won-
derful as they were, these figures are in ECU'S past.
But what is ECU'S present? To be blunt, ECU
sucks swamp water. They're so bad, it took the threat
of legislative action for them to get real teams to
even consider taking them on.
ECU used to be just a big waste of perfectly good
tax money for some down East politicians and a
cheap institution for higher "learning" where dull-
ards are toting Cannabis instead of taking classes.
Now it'll be a waste of a perfectly good Saturday
afternoon. The whole concept of East Carolina is a
joke� a ship of fools could make short work of this
But there is a bright spot to all of this� mashing
the purple and gold till they're black and blue will
be most amusing. True, beating Appalachian State
would be more of a challenge, but the sense of ac-
complishment from ruining the day for thousands
of rowdy 'bucheads'�especially after they went to
all the trouble of bathing before the game and put-
ting on their Sunday-best ECU T-shirts (sans tobacco
juice stains of course)�would more than make up
for anything lost in such a lopsided match.
Editors note: The following Is an excerpt from an editorial that ap-
peared in a 1996 edition of The Technician, N.C. State's student newspaper.
We include this opinion, taken from the era when ECU and NCSU were first
sclreduled to began playing each other again, to give Pirate fans a perspective
on the nature of the on-going rivalry between the schools.
Some N.C. State fans remember a football ri-
valry between the Wolfpack and the Pirates of East
Carolina University. This wildly popular clash came
to an end in 1987 after the euphoria of victory over-
whelmed some ECU fans and led them to incite a
post-game brawl with the friendly neighborhood
Some thought that after the violently destruc-
tive display of jubilation, the boorish hordes from
Greenville would never return to West Raleigh to
pillage Carter-Finley Stadium. But thanks to some
concerned souls downtown on Jones Street, the
'Pack and 'Bucs' will soon flip for possession.
ECU, long seen as the stepchild to the flagship
schools of the best education bargain in the nation,
wants to schedule tougher opponents like NCSU and
UNC-CH�who ceased its series with the Pirates In
1981�so they may create a noteworthy football pro-
Now NCSU has had its arm twisted into accept-
ing a dud of an old rival, and there are those who
are less than pleased with the imminent reappear-
ance of the Pirates. Sure, ECU fans are as giddy as
little schoolgirls gossiping on who likes who on the
playground during recess, but we all know that it
will soon switch over to tired old veterans bragging
TONIGHTS BIG STORY
NEWSCASTERS SUCH AS MYSELF NOT ONLY
DON T WEAR PANTSWE DON'T HAVE LEGS!
NCSU felt their arm had been twisted by making them play their old
rival, ECU. The editorial below appeared in NCSU's student newspaper in
June 1996. My, how times have changed. Five months after this appeared,
the Pirates stomped the Wolfpack 50-29 in Charlotte.
NCSU knows they have their work cut out for them this time as well.
They are very aware that it is going to be a tough task to stop this Pirate
squad. With the Pirates at 8-2 and the 'Pack at 6-5, this time it will be the
Wolfpack who come in as the underdog. It will be the Pirates who put
their stellar record and national ranking on the line.
This particular game should be one of the more memorable tilts in a
series that has provided many unforgettable moments.
After hurricane-addled fans tore down the goalposts in Raleigh's Carter-
Finley Stadium in September following the Pirates' upset victory over Mi-
ami, NCSU fans took umbrage. Retaliation might come if the Wolfpack
wins on Saturday.
If NCSU wins, could there be another riot like there was after 1987's
match-up? The only precaution that can be taken is to beef up police, but
even that might not be enough to control the 48,000-plus stadium fans.
Greenville has been waiting for this game since 1932, when the first
Pirate team took the field. It is rare for any one of the "Big Four" to cross
1-95 to play a football game. For all of the NCSU-ECU rivalry's history and
tradition, the game has never been played in Greenville.
For staunch Pirate fans this game was a long time coming. Hopefully,
the final game of the century in North Carolina's most intense football
rivalry will be worth the wait.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Discrimination downtown unacceptable
Have you ever wondered why so many black stu-
dents walk the streets downtown? Ever thought it odd
that you could see very few black students in the clubs
downtown? Let me guess�you want to know why. I'll
tell you why: discrimination. That's right folks! Right
here on our doorstep, this ugly beast has dared show
its face again in our midst.
ECU students are being discriminated against down-
town simply because their skin tones happen to be a
bit darker. Of course, they will tell you it's because "No
baggy jeans are allowed Well, a lot of people where
baggy jeans�black, white, Asian, American-Indian,
Hispanic or whatever. But you can best believe that
white students are not being turned away.
How about this one: "members only Hmm, this is
an interesting one. How many nightclubs do you know
that refuse to allow someone in just because they don't
have memberships? How many of us had memberships
or were even legal when we were invited for orienta-
tion? "But it's a members-only club you say. No dice
there. I have personally been invited to several "mem-
bers-only" clubs. When you didn't have a membership,
they would go in, pull a member at random to sponsor
non-members and charge you double the cover charge.
If you don't believe this kind of discrimination goes
on downtown, ask a couple of black students. Quite a
few of the establishments downtown participate in this
disgusting practice. It happens most often at Pantana
Bob's, Sports Pad and the Cellar. So if you go down-
town and only see blacks at BW-3's, Underwater and
Boli's, its not because all we do is eat, but because those
are virtually the only places that realize the only color
in business is green. I personally salute these three es-
tablishments, although BW-3's could put a couple of
more hip-hopr & b options in the jukebox.
In conclusion, our colleagues, associates and friends
are being treated unfairly downtown. If you frequent
the establishments practicing this type of behavior, you
have the civic duty and responsibility to do something,
whether you choose to stop going or complain to man-
agement. To do nothing is to accept this kind of be-
havior in our community. If you do nothing you might
as well be the bouncer at the door telling me my pants
are too baggy, I don't have a membership, my skin is
too dark or my hair is not quite the right grade. Better
yet just tell me that you are better than I am and that I
have no rights or privileges. If you are not part of the
solution, you are part of the problem.

Governor, ECU Black Students' Union;
SGA Judicial Board member
Curse of '87 can finally be lifted
Well, here we are, just two days
from one of the biggest events in
the school's history, and the admin-
istration looks like they are trying
to spoil the fun for everyone in-
I mean, what in the world were
they thinking when they set kick-
off for the NCSU game at 12:08
p.m.? It is completely dumbfound-
ing that they could pull a stunt like
this. This is to the students: When
was the last time you went to a col-
lege football game that kicked off
this early? And to the alumni:
When was the last time you even
REMEMBER a game being this early?
Come on guys. You can think of a
later time than this.
The word around campus seems
to be that the 'Powers That Be' are
trying to minimize the tailgating
and pregame drinking as much as
possible. Who are they trying to
The tailgating fields open four
hours before kickoff, so that means
that the individuals who partake in
this activity must arrive at 8 a.m. to
get their spots and get ready for the
game. Instead of cooking chicken,
steaks, and various luncheon feasts,
these people must now bring skil-
lets to cook eggs and bacon for
breakfast. Do you think these people
won't still drink at eight in the
morning? Come on. You have dras-
tically underestimated the drinking
capabilities of the student body and
alumni community. Hell, I know
dozens of Pirate Club members who
can outdrink any student we have.
With that little message out of
the way to the PTB (Powers That Be),
this goes out to all the students out
there. While we are at the game, can
we at least try to show some school
pride without repeating the riot of
1987? We fought long and hard for
the chance to play these suckers on
our home field, so lets not be the
drunken, crazed idiots that the state
seems to think we are, OK? I mean,
we can be the drunken, crazed idiT
ots they think we are, but let's at
least do it in a respectful manner.
Being respectful means no bottle
throwing in the stands, no fights
and no drunks passing out in the
stands, requiring the EMT's to come
get them. This is our chance people.
This is our chance to show the world
that we ARE capable of throwing
one kick-ass game and party at the
same time without having anyone
get hurt or arrested. The cops are
only there to do their job. We re-
spect them, they respect us. The
curse of '87 is about to be lifted. Lefs
make sure it never returns.

Pokemon inhibits children's learning
R.W. Hobbs, Jr.
A new foreign movie began hit-
ting theaters last week�not from
France or Italy, but from Japan.
Pokemon is probably the largest
Japanese phenomenon since those
horrible black and white claymation
monster flicks from eons past
(which can still be seen on the Sci-
Fi network). But it's not just an
American craze�Pokemon is popu-
lar worldwide. The concept was cre-
ated by Nintendo and arrived here
in America as a television show and
a video game. "Pokemon" is the
number one kids show on televi-
sion. And beyond video games, the
concept has also been successful
with toys and playing cards. The
motion picture is breaking all sorts
of box office records.
Whatever happened to educa-
tional children's programming like
Big Bird and Mr. Rogers? Children
are being overloaded with strange
and flashy cartoon figures and
mountains of toys. The big problem
lies with the parents, who are con-
stantly buying these expensive toys
for the kids. Children are even steal-
ing Pokemon toys from each other
at school, and trading, and gam-
bling with them. These cartoons
have no educational features or
message for kids. 1 am convinced
that programs such as "Pokemon"
do nothing for kids except to instill
addiction in toys at an early age.
Some schools are even banning it
because parents are worried about
the likelyhood that children will
The toys, especially the rare and
overpriced ones, become a compe-
tition among children. This is a
trend that has been going on for a
few years now. Around Christmas a
couple of years ago the "Tickle Me
Elmo" was causing parents to knock
each other over in the aisles of stores
just to get it. The same thing hap-
pened last year with the infamous

ably be a $200 Pokemon, which will

Some say that the Pokemon
cards help kids with math and de-
cision skills at an early age. That's
like saying it's OK for kids to jump
on their beds because it encourages
exercise, or it's good to allow kids
to slap their friends across the face
because it teaches self-defense. The
education argument does not wash
when you account for the sensory
overload of the toys, the gambling
and fighting over the cards, and the
addictive nature of the whole phe-

Army ROTC cadets outshine peers at camp
valuable life skills
The Army ROTC at ECU taps the full potential of
its cadets in a variety of activities. During their field
training exercise at Ft. Bragg on Nov. 7 and 8, their
skills and abilities were tested In a series of challenging
Over the course of one weekend, 42 cadets ranging
from sophomores to seniors, were put through land
navigation exercises, a leadership reaction course and
a qualifying test at the rifle range. All of these exercises
are intended to give the cadets a taste of the challenges
the Army will present them after they leave college.
"Each of the things that they are exposed to before
they go to camp gives them more realistic training and
more realistic evaluations to see how they stack up
against their peers said Lt. Col. Michael Loftin.
ECU'S ROTC cadets, in the opinion of Loftin, ex-
celled in comparison to the other cadets who were train-
"We are head over heels above the cadets we trained
with at St. Augustine's College in Raleigh Loftin said.
The first activity, a land navigation exercise, chal-
lenges the cadet to find certain markers in the envi-
ronment using a compass. They do this exercise twice,
the first time during the day and the second at night.
"The land navigation course at night was interest-
ing because it demonstrated what skills we did or didn't
have negotiating the terrain Loftin said.
Another activity, the leadership reaction course,
gave the cadets the opportunity to see what they could
do when put in command. The cadets are broken down

The benefits of training often go beyond their ROTC

training has had a positive benefit in her life.

coast, anything like that Schisler said.
Whether he is describing his work on his new deck
or being home with his wife and two daughters, there
is more to this professor than a student sees in the class-
room. Of all the activities that he spends his spare time
on, golf is his personal favorite.
Painting given to Makuck by M. Silverman because of his
interest in aquatic life, (photo by Susan Wright)
"I'm a three handicap Schisler said, meaning that
his average score is only three over par.
Dr. Jim Holte, a professor of the English department,
may not play golf, but his travels have taken him to
the land that invented golf�Ireland.
Holte has visited a variety of countries in England,
Romania may seem to be a strange place for a vaca-
tion, but for Holte, it was his interest in vampires that
brought him there.
"Transylvania is in Romania you know Holte said.
The vampire memorabilia in his office, including a
rubber bat and a life-size stuffed Dracula sitting in a
rocking chair, shows his interest in vampires.
"I've written four books on vampires and their his-
tory Holte said. "I have around 250 books of vampire
fiction in my collection, mostly all new
Holte also sits on a worldwide committee that judges
the best new vampire-based literature that comes out
each year. The committee meets in various locations
throughout Europe, so traveling is not only his pas-
sion, but is also necessary.
Dr. Peter Makuck of the English department also
likes to get out, but his adventures are of a more nauti-
cal nature. His two favorite pastimes are fishing and
"I fish for anything that will put up a fight�wa-
hoo, Spanish mackerel, tuna and dolphin, sailfish too
Makuck said. "There's nothing like being out there and
landing a big one.
"All around you, any way you turn, there's nothing
out there but you and your boat. The lilac-colored wa-
ter, and you get a strike Makuck said. "Your rod-tip
dives over the edge of the boat, and your reel starts
screaming, and there's nothing you can do about it,
you just let it urn, and then you see this huge silvery-
blue marlin jump out of the water. There's nothing like
The experience becomes poetic and almost epic in
the telling. Expect no less from Makuck; he's written
four books of poetry and one of short stories.
Schisler, Holte and Makuck all have different lives
outside of the classroom, and they all have to get away
sometimes. Their paper-littered desks are just the tip
of the iceberg when it comes to the personality of each
and every professor at ECU.
The Series will begin showing 10 minute clips of
the student videos on Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30
p.m. and at 3 p.m. on Sundays.

According to Black, this has the potential to be a
promising future ECU annual tradition, providing the
student response is high. If you are a student filmmaker
dying to have your work published, or if you enjoy
fiddling around with a camera on the weekends, come
by the Student Union and pick up more information.
Everyone has to get their start somewhere, and for
students interested in film production at ECU, this may
be the place to start. Someday the world may be watch-

The words came straight and true, just like
those fearsome forehands that kept opponents
pinned behind the baseline.
Steffi Graf was again on center court at
Madison Square Garden during the final tour-
nament of the WTA Tour, an event she has
won five times during the length of her career.
This time she wore a formal black sweater
and ankle-length black skirt and fought back
the tears, especially when she thanked her
mother, Heidi, and coach, Heinz Gunthardt.
"I don't only call you a coach Graf said to
Gunthardt, sitting next to Heidi Graf in the first
row. "I call you a friend, too
She paused, regained most of that famed
composure, and added: "I knew I would get

Cy Young winner
Pedro Martinez pitched another shutout,
winning the American League Cy Young Award
in a unanimous vote. Now the question is
whether he'll be elected Most Valuable Player,
"It would mean a lot, probably more than

after the Cy Young voting was announced.
"I've already achieved that, so the MVP would
be something different, especially to a pitcher
Martinez became only the fourth pitcher to
win the AL Cy Young Award unanimously and
joined Gaylord Perry and Randy Johnson, who
won his first NL Cy Young on Monday, as the
only pitchers to win the honor in each league.
Martinez, 23-4 with a 2.07 ERA for the
Boston Red Sox, received all 28 first-place
votes for 140 points in balloting by the Base-
ball Writers' Association of America.

Karolyi named coordinator
of women's team
Bela Karolyi, the bearish-looking coach
who helped Nadia Comaneci, Mary Lou
Retton and Kerri Strug win gold medals, is tak-
ing charge of the U.S. women's gymnastics
program less than a year before the Olympics.
Karolyi, who retired after the 1996 Olym-
pics, will be the women's national team coordi-
nator but he will not coach at the Sydney
Olympics, USA Gymnastics said Tuesday. He
will set the team's training programs and over-
see its Olympic preparations.
"We need to make some adjustments to
our women's program to improve our prepara-
tion for the 2000 Olympic Games said Bob
Colarossi, president of USA Gymnastics.
"Karolyi's efforts will make a significant differ-
ence in our ability to train at the highest level
during the 10 months prior to Sydney
Karolyi will advise the gymnasts' personal
coaches and have a role in saying who makes
the Olympic team.
"This is a special opportunity for me to con-
tinue supporting American gymnasts Karolyi
said. "This role suits me best since my retire-
ment from training individual gymnasts. I take

When it comes to grid

got its fair share.
Some of the most storied rivalries
date back to the last century. How-

brings emotion out of the most se-

"It's like if you and your brother

Kerr. "It's like a sibling rivalry
ECU played N.C. State for the
first timt in football on Oct. 10,
1970, in Raleigh. The Wolfpack
whipped the Pirates 23-6 in front of
18,000 in Raleigh's Carter Stadium.
The following season under first
year Head Coach Sonny Randle, the
Pirates beat N.C. State 31-15 and the
rivalry was born.
The rivalry that began in 1970
had been an annual affair for 17
years. It had been halted for almost
a decade and revived by an act of
law. It has been played as season
openers, season finales and bowl
games. By far, it is the most intense
football rivalry the state has seen.
The early years, 1970-1972
Many of the emotions that fuel
the rivalry come from before the
two teams ever met on the field.
For much of the century, east-
ern NC was behind the rest of the
state in many areas. Eastern NC's
feeling of inferiority extended from
a lack of economic prosperity in col-
For years, the "Big Four" domi-
nated college sports in NC. Duke,
University of North Carolina-
Chapel Hill, N.C. State and Wake
Forest got the exposure and notori-
ety when it came to college football.
The "Big Four" had their regal
rivalries that dated back to the
1890's. They had the tradition, they
had the history, they had each other
and the prestigious Atlantic Coast
ECU played in the lower profile
Southern Conference. The Pirates
faced conference foes such as
Furman, The Citadel and William
& Mary. The Pirates playing one of
the "Big Four" would be a major
boost for the program.
ECU did play Wake Forest once,
in Greenville on Sept. 21,1963. The
Pirates beat the Demon Deacons 20-
10 in front of 17,000 in the first
game ever played in Dowdy-Ficklen
The game marked the first and
only time time that ECU would play
one of the "Big Four" before 1970.
The ECU-N.C. State rivalry owes
its origins to a pair of old friend talk-
ing over dinner. Former N.C. State

longtime ECU Head Coach and Ath-
letic Director Clarence Stasavich,
discussed having their teams play
each other, while the two were at
dinner during a national coaches'
convention in the late '60s.
"They were the first in-state
school that agreed to play us said
Henry VanSant, assistant athletic di-
rector. "They helped East Carolina
a great deal by agreeing to play us
On Oct. 10,1970, the two teams
finally did suit up and play each
other in Raleigh. Edwards was on
the N.C. State sideline, while ECU
was coached by first year man, Mike
McGee. Edward's Wolfpack stomped

The next year the Pirates
notched their first win against N.C.

that had not been playing good
football that season rame into

and the Pirates were at 1-5 prior to
"The intent when we went in
was not to get embarrassed said
running back Carlester Crumpler.
"We wanted to go out and and play
hard and represent the university
The Pirates did just that. On the
strength of a 20-point first half, the
Pirates cruised to a 31-15 win.
"It was big Crumpler said, who
had 47 yards on nine carries. "Both
teams didn't have good years. I
think we won four games, but one
of those wins was against them
While the early games drew the
fans, it was not yet a true rivalry.
"We thought a lot about it, but
it wasn't as hyped up as it is now

ence games that we played while I

Building a rivalry, 1973-1987
In 1972 the Pirates began a
string of eight winning seasons.
N.C. State and ECU played every
year, always in Raleigh. During
these years of Pirate success, ECU
only beat the Wolfpack twice. In
1976 and again in 1977 the Pirates
bested the Wolfpack. By 1980, with
over a decade of games under their
belts, N.C. State held an 8-3 series
lead. The losses continued until
1983, when ECU topped the
Wolfpack, 22-16 in Raleigh.
A N.C. State win in 1984, fol-
lowed by a Pirate win in '85, fol-
lowed by a another N.C. State win
in 1986, gave credibility to what
once was a one-sided series.
Up until to this point the rivalry
was a pair of in-state schools squar-
ing off. It made for some good col-
lege football games and bragging
rights. What made the rivalry run
so deep is also what killed it for
nearly a decade.
"The rivalry was stopped be-
cause of difficulties we had in '87

Since the rivalry between N.C. State and ECU be-

come east of Raleigh. Saturday, they finally get the
chance to see the Pirates and the Pack go head to head
"It's going to be big said quarterback David
Garrard. "The crowd Is going to be in It the whole game.
They've been waiting for State to come here for so long,
and now they're finally here. They just want to see a

"It will be electric. It will be what college football is
supposed to be like
The game will be the 23rd renewal of one of college
football's most intense rivalries. For the seniors on this
Pirate squad, it will be the third time they have faced
the Wolfpack. For others on the team, it will be the
first time playing the Wolfpack. While they have not
faced State on the field, the teams are not strangers.
"I know a couple of players on the State team, and
I live like, 15 minutes from it Garrard said. "Actually,
that was my school in high school, but it kind of
changed a little bit
For many, including senior LaMont Chappell, the
Wolfpack team is filled with familiar faces. Chappell
went to high school at Roxboro's Person High School
along with State quarterback Jamie Barnette.
"ECU-N.C. State is a big rjvalry Chappell said. "It
will mean a lot to me because a lot of those guys are
from my hometown, who I grew up with from kinder-
garten up. I played ball with those guys since elemen-
tary school�peewee league all the way up to high
school. It will mean a lot and give me some bragging
rights when I go home
Barnette, a senior, will be a concern for the Pirates
as they prepare for the Wolfpack.
"We've got to keep Jamie Barnette from running
up and down the field on us Logan said. "He's a run-
throw guy; he can do both. People chase him around
all the time, but he gets sacked maybe once a game.
You've got to trap him with three people. One guy can't
sack him. Two guys might have a chance, but it takes
three to take him down
Another point of concern will be the talented corps
of receivers Barnette has at his disposal. Koren Robinson
and Chris Coleman have helped the Wolfpack offense
pass for an average of 201.8 yards per game.
While the Wolfpack offense has caught the atten-
tion of Pirate coaches, the defense has not gone unno-
"I know they're going to play man-to-man
Chappell said. "They played Carolina pretty good on
defense; they've really played everybody pretty good. I
feel they're going to come out and their going to play
their hardest, for a few quarters. But if we keep pound-
ing them, we'll come out with a victory

from page 10
What happened on the night of Sept. 5, 1987 ce-
mented the rivalry and made Into the intense feud that
it is today.
The season opener for the Pirates was going to be a
stern test for Head Coach Art Baker. Baker, in his third
year as head coach, had an undistinguished tenure at
the helm of the Pirate program. Having led the Pirates
to a 2-9 finish in 1985 and a 3-8 record in 1986, the
match up with N.C. State would be of the utmost im-
portance to Baker's future at the school.
The game itself was uneventful. On a rainy, late-sum-
mer evening, 56,000 fans watched ECU take apart the
Wolfpack. The Pirates' run and shoot offense was click-
ing with Travis Hunter at the helm. The Pirates opened
up a 13-7 lead at halftime and cruised to a 32-14 win.
ECU racked up 330 rushing yards in the victory.
With 10 seconds remaining, and the scoreboard pro-
jecting the all-but-certain ECU victory, hoards of Pirates
fans streamed from the grassy hill behind the South end
zone of Carter-Finley. The stampede was turned back by
an infuriated Baker. However, as the final seconds ticked
away, neither Baker nor the police could stop what was
about to happen.
Storming the field following a Pirate win in Carter-
Finley was nothing new. Pirate fans had taken to the
field after every Pirate win since 1971. It was usually a
peaceful, uneventful action. However, on this night, it
Thousands of Pirate fans ran over a chain link fence
and took to the field. This time N.C. State fans were
waiting. While the ECU fans headed for the goal posts,
N.C. State fans tried to defend their home field. When
the two factions met, a riot ensued. Police were unable
to control the melee.
Maj. Larry D. Liles, of the NCSU Department of Pub-
lic Safety, told the News and Observer that he estimated
over 2,000 people were on the field during the incident.
In the chaos, fist fights broke out and both goal posts
were torn down.
The incident outraged fans of both teams. As a re-
sult, the series that had been played every year since
1970 was halted indefinitely.
"One of the great college football games, period
If the 1987 game gave the rivalry its intensity, then
the 1992 Peach Bowl gave it its magic.
The effects of the game are still felt today in this part
of the state. Names like Jeff Blake, Robert Jones and Luke
Fisher still resonate like the names of heroes in a legend.
Almost every restaurant or shop in Greenville pays hom-
age to this team and this game with a picture on the
wall, a jersey on display or some other relic from that
January day in Atlanta.
"It was just one of the great college football games,
period said Head Coach Steve Logan, who then was
the offensive coordinator.
The Pirates began the 1991 campaign with a loss at
Illinois. It would be the last time the team lost all year.
The team rattled off 10 straight wins, many in dramatic
fashions. Of the teams' 10 regular season wins, four were
by seven points or less.
The team's winning streak garnered much attention
and its motto, "We Believe" adorned buttons and bill-
boards across the state.
The team accepted a bid to go to the Peach Bowl in
Atlanta to face N.C. State.
The game would be the last Peach Bowl played in
Atlanta's Fulton County Stadium. With 59,322 fans in
attendance the game kicked off. N.C. State took the early
lead on a 2-yard touchdown run from Gary Downs. A 5-
yard touchdown pass from Blake to Cedric Van Buren
knotted the score at seven. The Wolfpack took a seven
point lead when quarterback Terry Jordan found fight
end Todd Harrison for a 4-yard touchdown reception.
ECU countered with 10 points of their own, seven com-
ing on a 55-yard touchdown strike from Blake to Hunter
Gallimore. The Pirates went Into halftime up, 17-14.
The third quarter saw N.C. State score 13 unanswered
points. A 52-yard touchdown pass from halfback Ledel
George to split end Charles Davenport put the Wolfpack
up by 17 with 13:01 left in the game.

What happened next was storybook. After ECU got
the ball following a muffed N.C. State punt with 8:41
on the clock, Blake led the Pirates back from the brink.
Blake scored on a 2-yard run to cut the Wolfpack lead to
10. On the following ECU possession, Blake moved the
Pirates 80 yards and found Dion Johnson for a 17-yard
Head Coach Bill Lewis opted for the two point con-
version. It failed and the Pirates were down four with
4:18 remaining. On the Pirates final possession, Blake
hit the tight end, Fisher for a 22-yard touchdown. This
put the Pirates up 34-31.
When Damon Hartman's 49-yard field goal attempt
fell short, the Pirates had completed the greatest come-
back in ECU history. ECU had put up 20 unanswered
points and taken their place among NC's elite football
From the gridiron to the legislature, 1992-1997
The 1992 Peach Bowl re-energized the rivalry be-
tween the two schools. The game, combined with both
teams' moderate success in the early and mid '90s, cre-
ated a movement to get the two schools to renew their
annual series. State senator, Mark Basnight (D-Dare) in-
troduced bills In the General Assembly to require ECU
to play N.C. State and UNC-CH. The measure worked
and UNC-CH and N.C. State agreed to play ECU, start-
ing with N.C. State taking on the Pirates in 19.
The two teams'first meeting since the Peach Bowl
came on Nov. 30, 1996 in Charlotte's Ericsson Sta-
On that rainy day, it was aU Pirates. ECU took
control early and never let up, cruising to a 50-29

Pirate running back Scott Harley set an NCAA
record for rushing yards as a sophomore, racking up
351 yards on the ground.
