Howard's Michigan legacy runs on

by Bruce Inosenclo
Daily Sports Writer
The rumors are true - Desmond
Howard will suit up for Michigan
once again. But Michigan's Heisman
Trophy winner won't be on the grid-
iron; he'll be sprinting around a
track. Howard has already run with
the indoor track team in practices,
but will not see competition for a
few weeks.
"Desmond will run for us, and
now it's just a matter of his busy
schedule allowing him time for prac-
tices and meets," Michigan coach
Jack Harvey said.
Howard downplayed his decision
to join the team.
"There isn't a whole lotto say.
I'm just going to try to stay in shape
for the pro scouts so I can run a
quick 40 (yard dash)," Howard said.
Harvey hasexpressed the need
for stronger times in the sprints and
hurdles, and Howard may give the
Wolverines the boost they are look-

ing for in the shorter distances.
"I'm not trying to take anyone's
spot on the team, but I hope I can
help out in a few areas if the team
needs it," Howard said.
Other Wolverine gridders who
will run track this season include
Dwayne Ware, Tyrone Wheatley
and Felman Malveaux. Ware is the
only one ready for competition, but
Wheatley and Malveaux, who has a
cyst on the back of his knee, could
be competing soon.
"We are weak in the sprintshand
Howard and Malveaux have the po-
tential to run some fast times for us,"
Harvey said. "Desmond is in shape
right now, but being in shape for
football and in shape for track are
two different things," Harvey added.
Howard ran in a few indoor
meets two years ago and was able to
make a contribution. But, Harvey
stressed that Howard would not be
competing until he was ready.

"There's no sense in sticking him
out there if he's going to finish dead
last - that wouldn't do him or the
team any good," Harvey said.
Harvey feels that Howard and
Malveaux are now capable of run-
ning 55 meters near 6.3 seconds, and
hopeful that they will both improve.
As a note of comparison, Ohio
State football player Butler By'not'e
won the 55-meter dash with a time
of 6.36 in Saturday's meet between
Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State
and Michigan State.
Howard will run the 55 during
the indoor season. When competition
moves outdoor, he will be part of a
sprint relay team and run the 100.
Expect to see Howard in the track
results as early as mid-February.
Aside from the new members of
the track team, a number of football
players were running in front of a
scout from the New York Giants.

SPORTING VIEWS

Fans win big during
Super Bowl week

by Jeremy Adams
MINNEAPOLIS - Like lucra-
tive advertising opportunities flee-
ing from Buffalo quarterback Jim
Kelly, visitors returned home from
Minneapolis, host city to Sunday's
Super Bowl XXVI.
Nowhere was this more apparent
than at the airport Monday morning
- Super Bowl Monday, as it's
known - where travelers carrying
Super Bowl seat cushions from the
Metrodome made their way toward
outbound flights.
With the exception of those
headed for either Buffalo or Wash-
ington, most people seemed indif-
ferent toward the game's outcome.

Sure, all had cheered for one team
or the other throughout the week
and at the big game, but now was a
time to put these temporary al-
legiances aside. Time to root for the
home team again, and to look for-
ward to next season. And time to be
grateful to have been a part of the
past week's festivities. ss
Redskin quarterback Mark Ryp-
ien described Super Bowl Week best
upon his arrival in Minneapolis last
Monday evening. When questioned
about the hype that Super Bowls
bring with them to their host city,
he admitted, "You have to get
caught up in everything that's going
on and the excitement."
Eight days, a championship and
an Super Bowl MVP award later,
the excitement continues for Ry-
pien. For most fans across the
country the Super Bowl XXVI ex-
perience ended at the conclusion of

CBS' broadcast Sunday night.
But for many of the 70,000
visitors to Minneapolis, it ends in
the Minneapolis airport.
Asone of those 70,000, I have to
agree with Mark Rypien: you have
to get caught up in the excitement.
For those of us who did, Super
Bowl XXVI was much more than a
Redskins' victory over the Bills.
It was the NFL Experience, an
NFL theme park that allowed fans
to throw footballs for accuracy in a
simulation of the event which Dan
Marino won last year, to try and
beat the sprint time of the NFL's
fastest man, and to experience an
NFL game through the eyes of the
players in a 10-minute NFL Films
feature.
It was "Super Bowl Saturday
Night", hosted by Burt Reynolds
and broadcasted live by TNT - a
90-minute show that featured per-

formances by Huey Lewis and the
News, among others, and the presen-
tation of awards such as Coach and
Player of the Year.

01

It was "A Taste of the NFL" -
a party featuring the most popular
foods from the 28 NFLE cities.
It was the NFL Tailgate Party,
the Super Bowl Breakfast, and the
excitement in the lobby of the Hy-
att Regency whenever ESPN's Chris
Berman reported live.
And it was Minneapolis, the city
that billed Super Bowl week as
"The Hottest Time of the Year
and actually made us believe it de-
spite the high temperatures around
20 degrees.
Perhaps Redskins' coach Joe
Gibbs put it best when asked about
his stay in Minneapolis:
"I truly enjoyed the whole
trip," he said. "The Minnesota pco-
ple were great, it was a great place
to have it, and I'd be glad to come
back again."
I'm sure that all of us in the
Minneapolis airport Monday morn-
ing would be glad to join him.
