High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - October 29, 1976, High Point, North Carolina By pin shins take Wijtyk Shinn. There a photographer working at the Enterprise who is known to some of his intimate relations As Hawk. The Why is another Story but Hawk sometimes helps me make these picks for the Atlantic coast conference football season. But Hawk has a problem two really he always wants Points and Duke saying he can t bet against the Blue devils. But be turns right around and has All kinds of bad things to say about his team whenever they lose after the last two weeks performances by Duke i can to say i really blame him by reasonable standards. Duke should not be As bad As it has shown lately. A couple More games like the one against Maryland and there won t be enough Points to even get a bet with Hawk the Blae devils will be Back Tell Agata this saturday along with other members of the conference. It will be a Boac reference game Aga Laet Long time rival Georgia tech la Durham. Elsewhere. Corollas to at Wake Forest re Tacky at Mary Load state at South Carol Ina Virginia is. Vii at Norfolk and Clemson at Florida state. All Are i so games except a 7 31 game la Florida. The standings wont change much with the one conference game this will be a week for teams to try to improve their Overall records that s something Hawk and i can stand too. What with a split Over last week for a season of 25-13-3. Here s a carious evaluation of this saturday s crop. Carolina 9-1, i at Wake Forest Ltd 3-5 new in t necessarily better Carolina showed that in beating East Carolina and if the situation arises you can look for the same ingredient to be put in the mixture again the ingredient is a 20-year-old football that two tar Heel Hooters found in the equipment room and used to kick East Carolina you can bet they la have it As part of Standard equipment this week still it s not a Good thing to depend on Field goals As your main source of attack with the defense holding though a team does t need As Many Points the thing about Wake is it gets wins Over unc when it urn t supposed to coach Chuck Mills denies his team was looking past Virginia in that loss rather he says the team took Virginia too lightly. That a something that won t happen this week and ifs another Honor for safety Bill Armstrong already picked for one postseason ail Star game it has been announced he will also play in the Hula bowl. That does t have anything to do with tomorrow s game though. Wake Forest by just a nod. 24-17. Georgia tech 3-3-1 at Duke 3-3-1 a tech had an unbeaten freshman team in 1973. So it should have meant a blossoming of Talent this season. Things did t Start that Way. However and coach Pepper Rodgers has had some disturbing moments since september the yellow jackets Are Back on target now it seems and May be catching Duke at a Good time. It will take a Superior Job of motivation from the players and coach to snap Back from last week s lots a sunday workout followed that defeat As Mike Mcgee tries to keep from letting the season slip away. Quot we can t let one disappointment set us Back from having a great he says. Quot i Don t think we will. Well find out saturday. Techs running backs Are As Good As any Well see this season with the exception of Pitt. And they re an improving team Quot assistant coach to Forte goes a step further in calling the yellow jackets the fastest team on the Duke schedule. Now that tech has dropped the Wishbone and gone to the veer the opponents have been in trouble Dukes in trouble again tech is the pick 21-14. Stale 3-4-1 at South Carolina 5-3 a being an Independent us must impress any bowl scouts hanging around the gamecocks have played some Good games even in losing efforts it should be a Good offensive show Between state s Johnny Evans and us quarterback Ron Bass. Runners Are abundant with Ted Brown facing off against Clarence Williams in other words the defences of both teams will literally have to have their hands full to Stop the other team s attack and the 50,000-plus fans expected to Stop a by will keep the chill off what May be a Cool afternoon. A Point in favor of the gamecocks is the artificial playing surface. A difficult Choice but South Carolina has a lot Riding on the outcome. For that reason give the gamecocks a 35-28 pick to win. Kentucky 4-3 at Maryland 7-0 a Kentucky students have come up with something new in boating. They made one out of Cement that really will float. A school with people that smart should have them working on ways to beating the fifth ranked team. This is Maryland a Steve Atkins last Chance to get Back in the running for Rushing honors. He dropped out after missing last week s game and if he misses another he won t have enough games left to be counted in Mcaa statistics. The last time Kentucky visited Maryland it won. But that was a Long time ago 1956at that time the terms were on a five game losing Streak now its the other Way around. Larry Dick has recovered enough to sub for quarterback Mark manges taking some pressure off there. Maryland is the Choice 24-21. Virginia 14 is. Vii 3-5 a despite last weeks win Virginia still has a 10-game no conference losing Streak. The cars Are last in the league in Rushing. Nobody has quite figured out How they beat Wake Forest. And they did it without Billy Copeland who is gone with a head injury. A min a biggest weapon is being fifth in the country in pass defense of the Cavaliers go to enough wide option plays they can hang on for a 20-15 win. Clemson 1-44 at Florida state 1-5 a last year the seminoles scored 43 Points at Clemson in a rout. The quarterback has changed but the veer is still around. If you place emphasis on the kicking game Florida state has punted 36 times so far and allowed 33 Yards in return yardage. Favor state 28-10. Mcgee shares Golf Lead Pensacola. Map a Jerry Mcgee if building a new Home in Ohio which should be ready for occupancy in a couple of weeks Quot ifs got a trophy room in it Quot Mcgee said and grinned. Quot and i be Only got one trophy it sure would be Nice to get another one Quot he took a step in that direction with a four under 67 that gave Mcgee a share of the first round Lead in the 1125 000 Pensacola open Golf tournament thursday the event that last year prodded him with the Only trophy he now owns Quot after playing on the tour As Long As i have. I did t think it would happen but i was really nervous on the first tee. Quot Mcgee said Quot in be never been a defending Champion before there s a lot of Pride on the tour play i really wanted to play Well it was awfully important to me i did t putt particularly wed but i played that last nine about As Well As i can play and i will play Well the rest of the Way of i can get that Putter rolling a Little.
