Blue golfers close
season at Stanford
by Paul Barger
As quickly as it started, the fall
season for the Michigan men's golf
team is about to come to a close.
The Wolverines will leave the Mid-
west behind and take their talents to
Stanford, where they will attempt to
show their worth to the West.
Last weekend, the team competed
against a strong field and came away
with a solid third-place showing at
the Buckeye Invitational in Colum-
bus. One of the teams from that
field, Colorado, will also be playing
at Stanford this weekend. The Wol-
verines will attempt to best the
nationally-ranked Buffaloes for the
second time in as many weeks.
The golfers will also face some
Big Ten competition, as they will be
joined by Indiana, Wisconsin, and
Northwestern. At the Northern Inter-
collegiate Tournament in Bloom-
ington, Oct. 2-4, Michigan defeated
the Wildcats, tied the Badgers, and
lost to the Hoosiers.
Michigan coach Jim Carras feels
that he has a very good team, but
knows that they will be put to the
test against an excellent field.
"There will be a lot of strong
West Coast schools there," Carras
said. "Some are nationally-ranked
and the others all have very strong
golf programs. I would like to finish
in the top six, so anything better
than that will be a great bonus."
The Wolverines will face those
opponents with a varied lineup.
Based upon hisperformance last
week, senior co-captain James
Carson will play as the No. 1 golfer.
After two tournaments, Carson has a
75.5 average. He will be followed by
fellow co-captain Anthony Dietz
(75.7). Because of his 12th-place
finish in Columbus, Bob Henighan
(76.6) will play in the third
The fourth and fifth men will be
playing in their first tournament to-
gether as collegiate golfers. How-
ever,. it is definitely not the first
time they have teamed up in a
match. Two years ago, Bill Lyle and
Chris Brockway were the No. I and
No. 2 golfers for Ann Arbor's
Pioneer High School.
According to Carras, Brockway
has been playing well and deserved
this opportunity. Carras also had an
explanation for Lyle's troubles last
"I truly believe that it was just a
fluke," Carras said. "It happens to
everybody once in awhile. He made a
couple of mistakes and it begins to
compound. I suspect that he will
play well in California."
for second place
by Michael Rosenberg
A mere two weeks into the Big Ten season, Michigan's football team
already has sole possession of first place. With the exception of winless
Ohio State, every other team in the conference is 1-1.
The conference is as bad as it's been in a long time, but it does have
some decent teams outside of Ann Arbor. This weekend's games should give
a clear indication of the best of the rest. Here is a rundown of Saturday's
games among the Little Nine.
Michigan State (1-1 Big Ten, 1-4 overall) vs. Minnesota
Because of the down year in the conference, some are predicting that the
Spartans could finish second. And in their opening Big Ten win against
Indiana, the Spartans did look good. But any team that loses to Central
Michigan - twice in two years - cannot be the second best team in the
Big Ten, no matter what year it is.
On the other side of the ball is Minnesota. We won't bore you with
details in this space, so you'll just have to trust us. The Gophers stink.
Michigan State 17, Minnesota 6.
Ohio State (0-2, 3-2) vs. Northwestern (1-4, 1-1):
Could Ohio State actually lose to the Wildcats? In their first two Big
Ten games, losses to Wisconsin and Illinois, the Buckeyes looked bad. Real
bad. But not that bad.
As happens so often in the Big Ten, just when a team thinks it will
never win again, it plays Northwestern, and all is well. Ohio State was
nationally ranked in the preseason, and with good reason. Look for the
Buckeyes to put together a long winning streak, starting Saturday. Ohio
State 38, Northwestern 10.
Illinois (1-1, 2-3) vs. Iowa (1-1, 1-4):
Illinois must look like a Pop Warner team to Iowa, which has already
played Michigan, Miami (Fla.), Colorado and N.C. State. When the Illini
got crushed three weeks ago by Houston, they looked like a Pop Warner
team to the rest of the world too.
Going into the season, Illinois fans hoped that quarterback Jason
Verduzco could lead them to a bowl. But now Verduzco sits on the bench,
and Illinois is in trouble. Iowa 35, Illinois 24.
Purdue (1-1, 1-4) vs. Wisconsin (1-1, 3-2):
Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez did a lot of talking before the Iowa game
last week. Then, the Hawkeyes handed his Badgers their first Big Ten loss of
the year. Alvarez has been conspicuously quiet this week.
It doesn't really matter, though, because Purdue could be the worst team
in the conference. Wisconsin should beat the Boilermakers handily,
regardless of what Alvarez says.
The Badgers can show their improvement by beating teams that they're
supposed to beat. Purdue certainly qualifies. Wisconsin 27, Purdue 0.
Boston College (4-0-1) vs. Penn State (5-1):
The Big Ten's eleventh team played its game of the year last week
against Miami. The Hurricanes prevailed, but the Nittany Lions were clearly
the better team.
After such a heartbreaker, Penn State could go in either of two directions:
1) Roll over B.C. and continue to dominate the rest of its schedule, or 2)
Play without any emotion and lose to the Eagles. It says here the latter will
happen, and B.C. will move into the thick of the New Year's Day bowl
hunt. Boston College 20, Penn State 13.
Iowa wideout Danan Hughes is tackled in the Hawkeyes' 52-28 loss to
Michigan earlier this season. The Hawkeyes are one of eight teams with 1-
1 records in the Big Ten that will be fighting for second place this
weekend. Michigan is in sole control of first place with a 2-0 record.

9-2, earns first
TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto
Blue Jays finally learned how to win
in October and took the World
Series out of the United States for
the first time by beating the Oakland
Athletics 9-2 yesterday to win the
Juan Guzman did what Jack
Morris and David Cone could not
do, winning on three days' rest, to
wrap up Game 6. Joe Carter and
Candy Maldonado made Guzman's
second victory of the series easier
with home runs that put Toronto
ahead 6-0 after three innings.
Roberto Alomar capped the series
off with an RBI-single in the eighth.
He was 11 for 26 in the series, tying
the record for hits in an AL playoff.
The World Series will begin
Saturday at the home of the NL
champion. Then, on Tuesday night,
baseball's big event will get some
northern exposure for the first time
when the Blue Jays play host to
