By MARK MIHANOVIC
The Michigan gridiron wars have
been won through the air as well as on
the ground in this centennial football
season. If the Wolverines are to win
their final battle in the Gator Bowl
December 28 against North Carolina,
they may need this diversified attack.
The Tar Heels (7-3-1), ranked second
in the Atlantic Coast Conference in
rushing defense over the season, but
dead last in pass defense, suggests that
the passing talents of John Wangler
might prove more valuable for the Blue
than the option abilities of B.J. Dickey
or Rich Hewlett.
The key to North Carolina's strong
rushing defense is the inside
linebacking tandem of Buddy Curry
and Darrell Nicholson. Curry, a 6-3, 220-
pound senior,, led the team in tackles for
the third straight year with 119, and
picked off five opposition passes to lead
the squad in that category as well. His
quickness and range perfectly com-
plement the sophomore, Nicholson,
who's the hardest hitter on the team.
Nicholson, the ACC Rookie of the Year
last season, was second-on the team this
season in tackles with 101.
DONNELL THOMPSON (6-5, 260)
anchors the defensive line at left tackle.
His five sacks tied him for tops on the

concerns

Tar Heels'

team, and he possesses excellent speed
to go along with his size.
The other two defensive lineman,
John Brugos (6-2, 227) at right tackle
and Bob Duncan (6-2, 211) at nose
guard,. are on the smallish side, but'
compensate for that with hard work
and intelligence.
The two outside linebackers,
Lawrence Taylor (6-2, 230) and Calvin
Daniels (6-3, 225) both possess great
athletic ability and an improved pass
defense, a mediocre quality early in the
season. Taylor nabbed opposing
passers five times for losses.
RICKY BARDEN, a 5-9, 178-pound
rock, is stationed at strong safety.
Rated by many as the greatest defen-
sive back in North Carolina history, the
senior from Norfolk, Virginia, was
named to second team All-America by
the Football News this year.
Barden only intercepted Nvo passes
over the campaign, mainly due to the
fact that opposing quarterbacks stay
away from his area of the field. Yet he
made an amazing twelve tackles
behind the line of scrimmage, including
four sacks on blitzes. It's a good bet that
the Wolverines will avoid Barden's zone
as much as possible.
The rest of the secondary is con-
sidered' questionable, even though free

safety Steve Streater, who also handles
the punting quite capably with a 41.2
yard average, pulled in five intercep-
tions. North Carolina is most
vulnerable 'at the corners. Opponents
exploited the inexperience of freshman
Larry Winters and junior David

Singleton all season long, and Michigan
coach Bo Schembechler will probably
let speedsters Ralph Clayton and An-
thony Carter loose. back there.
THE TAR HEELS feel that their last
place standing in pass defense is
