first inning of last night's World Series action. It was all in vain, however, as Lopes was left stranded. The A's, bouncing
back from last Sunday's loss, recorded a 3-2 victory over Los A ngeles and took a 2-1 lead in the series.

John Kohler.-

IT'S BEEN ONLY a little more than a year since the Big Ten
adopted redshirting, but the Michign football team has al-
ready benefitted greatly from the legal extra year of eligibility.
Starting defensive end Larry Banks would not be on campus
had he not been redshirted last year. Quarterback Mark Elzinga
also sat out last fall, and will still have two years of eligibility
left once Dennis Franklin departs.
Calvin O'Neal was redshirted last year. He is currently a
sophomore in eligibility, and next year, after Steve Strinko
and Carl Russ depart, he will have a linebacking position of
his own for two years.
His play so far this season would seem to indicate that O'Neal
will make good use of that starting slot. With both Strinko and
Russ hampered by injuries, O'Neal has become a semi-regular,
starting twice and garnering 36 tackles through five games.
With all the good O'Neal received from redshirting, it is a
bit surprising that he remembers his redshirt year with distaste.
"I found out I was being red-_
shirted last year the week be-d
fore our first game," he relates.
"I was on the travel list for the
Iowa game and I expected to
"But after practice, Moel-
ler (Gary Moeller, defensive
co-ordinator) told me I was
being redshirted, and I
wouldn't make the trip. I felt
pretty bad after hearing that,
since I wasn't expecting to
sit it out." iv
"We had decided that we
didn't need him last season,"
explains Moeller. "We had
(Craig) Mutch, Russ Strinko
and (Jovan) Vercel who were
all experienced linebackers."
A redshirt player is not al-
lowed to take the fall off, by
any means.
"We had -to dress for the
h o m e games," continues
O'Neal. "Going through the
warmups and all that rigama-
role was hell. I dreaded every-
"I told myself that I would
never go through anything like
that again, that I would get
myself physically and mental-.
ly ready for next season. That's
why I stayed here over the sum
mer, lifting weights and getting
myself in shape for this year."
One of the major reasons
that O'Neal was red-shirted,
was his relative lack of ex-
perience at linebacker. The O'Neal i
coaches tried Calvin in his
freshman year at middle guard and defensive end. He
even played fullback for the Varsity Reserves.
"We always felt he could be a linebacker," says Moeller.
"But we needed help at other positions, so we tried him at
middle guard and defensive end to see if he could help us."
The experiments at middle guard and defensive end explain
how Calvin picked up a lineman's number, 96.
"I always wanted to be a linebacker," O'Neal emphasizes.
'I played there as a freshman: But they told me I was being
ied at middle guard.
"That broke my spirit. But I didn't want to be against the
ystem or anything, so I gave it a try. I didn't do well there
ossibly because I didn't like the position.,
"Then after a week, they told me I was getting switched
rom middle guard, but they wanted me at a down lineman posi-
ion. I guess the reason I returned to linebacker was because
f persistance on my part. I just kept asking them to switch me,
ntil they moved me back.
"I like the freedom of being a linebacker. I can't be re-
stricted, and at linebacker, you can get in on all the action.
"At defensive end, if the play's not going in your direction,
you usually don't get in on it. At middle guard, the play's either

grams of health, welfare, lob opportunity, etc. are admin-
