MSU's Moore: silent but deadly

By RICARDO COONEY
State News sports writer
To say that Tim Moore is the
strong, silent type is an
understatement.
The first thing you notice about
the Spartan outside linebacker is his
icy stare, the kind that CBS color
analyst John Madden always gets so
excited about.
"I wanted to play football my
whole life," Moore said. "A
linebacker or a running back is what
I wanted to be my whole life. As
young as I can remember, I wanted
to play football."
And now that he does, Moore is
not all that excited about talking
about himself. He, along with many
other good linebackers, prefers to let
his actions on the field do h i s
talking. And although he may not
seem like a friendly guy, it is not
his job to be friendly. When was the
last time you knew a linebacker who
liked many people he came in
contact with?
WATCHING FILMS for two

hours a day, Moore studies first his
opponents' weaknesses, and then
contemplates the most punishing
scenario in exploiting that weakness.
This is just one of the parts that
makes up a whole-a whole lot of
trouble for those who come u p
against Moore.
"I think you have to be smart,
you have to be fast, you have to be
alert, and you have to be ready for a
quick change," he said of his
linebacking duties. "I just want to
get by my tight end, and get to the
ball carrier. I have to beat my tight
end every play.
"As soon as I do that, then I have
to find the ball. The only thing I
have on my mind, is get to the ball.
I have to stop the ball carrier for
negative yards."
A FIFTH-YEAR SENIOR,
Moore saw his first action in 1984
after an injury to former Spartan
Thomas Tyree. Moore made 12
tackles, one for a loss, and picked off
a pass as the Spartans beat
Northwestern. From that day on, he
has been hitting Moore and Moore
opponents with all the anger and
vengeance of a Samurai Warrior
gone berserk.
Just ask Iowa quarterback Dan
McGwire. Late in last week's game
with the Hawkeyes, MSU blitzed
McGwire. Moore teamed with fellow
linebacker Kurt Larson on the play
and... well, all you really need to
know is that Chuck Hartlieb came in
to replace an injured McGwire on the
next set of downs.
Make no bones about it. Moore
is all business. He doesn't possess
the outspoken, cocky attitude of a

Brian Bosworth, nor does he have
the luxury of Chris Spielman's
Heisman Trophy hype. What Moore
does have that gives him the
opportunity to be compared to those
two is the ability to punish anyone
who dares carry the ball into his area
of the field.
NATURALLY, as a Big Ten
linebacker, Moore is tested week in
and week out. At 6-3, 225 pounds,
he utilizes his pressing ability to foil
runners.
This season, after only four

games, Moore is off to a good start
with 33 tackles, 19 solo, and 14
assisted. Included in those statistics
are five tackles for losses and a 10-
yard quarterback sack. He also
grabbed an interception. in the
Spartans first game of the season
against USC. V
Moore, of course, wants to play
professional football some day. But
until that days happens, he'll just
continue to be a genuine pain in the
sides of conference opponents.
