WOME
Ailing h
By GREG MOLZON
For their season opening meet,
Michigan head coach Sue Parks
and her women's cross country
team travelled half way across
the country this past weekend to
visit the Show Me State and
participate in the Missouri
Invitational in Columbia, Mo.
The Wolverines finished third
out of seven teams, but they were
hampered by illnesses which kept
the team from showing the
Missourians two of its better
runners, Cheri Sly and Melissa
Thompson.
SLY HAD the flu and wasn't
able to compete at all, while an ill
Thompson attempted to run but
was ineffective and finished 29th.
Still, the other young
Wolverine runners were able to
pick up the slack and finished
with 66 points, behind only
Arkansas, with 29 points, and
Kansas State, 48 points.
"Arkansas and Kansas State
are pretty good teams," said
Parks. "They're two of the best
in the nation."
EVEN WITH Sly and
Thompson healthy, Michigan
probably wouldn't have been able
to catch these top teams, so Parks

OSU's start puts
pressure on Bruce

I

COLUMBUS (AP)- Ohio State
is off to its worst start this century
and many Buckeye followers are
worried.
But Buckeye coach Earle Bruce
is not one of them.
THE LAST time Ohio State lost

y7a

"'qwmm Ilww

..

its first two games was 1894, when
the Buckeyes fell to Akron 12-6
and Wittenberg 6-0.
So far in this, Ohio State's 97th
season of intercollegiate football,
the Buckeyes have shown a
similar lack of firepower in
dropping a 16-10 decision to
Alabama in the Chase Kickoff
Classic and a 40-7 humiliation
against Washington Saturday in
Seattle.
The pressure is on, not only on
the team but also the eight-year
coach of the Buckeyes.
"I'VE BEEN traveling through
the alleys and staying away from
everyone," Bruce said with a
laugh yesterday at his weekly
news conference. He joked that
he has started checking the
undercarriage of his car for
bombs prior to starting out in the
morning.
Not since 1911 has a Buckeye
team had a slower start
offensively. That team managed
a pair of opening victories on a
total of nine points.
The natives are restless, as are
members of the largest alumni
organization in the country. Ohio
State started the 1986 season with a
.705 winning percentage.
Buckeye fans are not accustomed
.to losing.
"WHO HAS played Alabama
and Washington back to back?"
Bruce asked rhetorically. "Who
has?... I have said all along that
those were two great football
teams and this was as tough a
start as Ohio State has ever
faced."
But Bruce hasn't blamed the
two defeats strictly on the
schedule.
For one, he pointed to
inexperience which has led to
numerous mistakes.
GRIDDE PICKS
