USC runs into problemsI
Coach John McKay of Southern California said Tuesday he
may be forced to move Ricky Bell, the nation's top runner, from
tailback to fullback,. at least part-time, even though it would
cause a series of problems for the third-ranked Trojans.
The powerful Bell, a junior switched from fullback to
tailback this season, is off to the fastest start of any running
back in Trojan history. He has torn for 471 yards and six
touchdowns in two games.
But Dave Farmer, who took his place at fullback, broke a
leg against Oregon State Friday night.
"Farmner's injury obviously reduces our effectiveness," said
McKay. "At the start of the season with Farmer, Bell, and Mosi
Tatupu we had what I claimed were the three best fullbacks as
a group, and now you have to take another one out."

Bosox boast best DI s
Cecil Cooper and Jim Rice of the Boston Red Sox stand one-
two in the American League designated hitter standings. The DH
population already has hit more homers, scored more runs, and
driven in more runs than last year, the league office announced
Tuesday.
Cooper leads the weekly batting race with a .312 average
while Rice boasts a .287 mark. Rice will not get an opportunity
to better that performance, since he injured his left hand Sun-
day and will be out for the season.
Willie Horton of Detroit and Billy Williams of Oakland have
been the year's top sluggers. Horton has 25 homers, 61 runs
scored and 91 RBI, followed by- Williams with 22 homers, 63 runs
and 76 RBI.

Clemson caught byNCAA?
Clemson University has been found guilty of illegal basket-
ball recruiting practices by the National Collegiate Athletic As-
sociation, according to the Greenville Piedmont. The newspaper
said that informed sources report the school will be placed on
two years probation.
It said no information is available on whether the proba-
tion would be limited to post season basketball or whether
it would affect the entire athletic program.
The Athletic Coast Conference school's athletic program has
been under scrutiny since early this year.

the Varsity Reserve's purpose
was clear-to groom promising
freshmen, as well as some older
players, for the varsity, by pro-
iiding actual game experience.
Then, in Brown's first yaar as
VR coach, the Big Ten decided
to let freshmen play with the
big boys, and the face of VR
football changed - somewhat.
For example, this year's reserve
squad would've included not
only Leach, but highly-touted
freshmen runners Russell Davis
and Harlan Huckleby.
The rule hasn't signaled the
end of VR quality, though. Even
with the chance to develop the
more obviously skilled taken out

Brown contends that the out- ---- -_.
standing freshmen may miss the
VR expnerience more tha~n the
reserve sq-ad misses them.
"THE FRESHMAN rule plac-
ed a lot of pressure on the in-
coming freshmen," Brown said. "
"Now they feel they're failures
if they don't play in the big
stadium on Saturday.
"But we don't judge a playter
by his freshman year," BN'wn
continued. "It's a big adjust-
ment. Everything's stew, from
his uniform to the system.
These freshmen need coaching,
and on the varsity, they won't
get as much individual atten-
tion as they would on VR."
Brown admits even the VR 5"
