Holtz resigns as Notre Dame football coach

SOUTH BEND (AP) - The Lou
Holtz era is over at Notre Dame.
The coach will announce at his
weekly news conference today that
he's resigning after 11 seasons.
Details were completed at a meeting
yesterday with athletic director Mike
Wadsworth and the Rev. William
Beauchamp, the university's execu-
tive vice president.
"He met with the administration
and told them he's leaving," one of

two university sources, who spoke on
the condition they not be identified,
told The Associated Press.
School spokesperson John Heisler
declined to confirm Holtz's resigna-
tion, saying only he had met with
Wadsworth and Beauchamp.
Wadsworth declined comment, and
Beauchamp was not immediately
available.
"They have reached a decision and
it will be announced at 1 p.m.

(today)," Heisler said.
Why Holtz, 59, is resigning is not
clear, but one possibility is that he
wants another shot at the NFL, where
he led the New York Jets to a 3-10
record in 1976 before resigning with
one game left.
One scenario has him coaching the
Minnesota Vikings if current coach
Dennis Green leaves.
It was business as usual at Notre
Dame's practice yesterday, with Holtz

- pacing the field and occasionally
yelling at players when they did
something he didn't like. He refused
afterward to confirm his resignation,
but he did say the situation is starting
to take its toll.
"I will talk about that at the appro-
priate time and now is not the appro-
priate time," he said. "Practice went a
little longer than I wanted because I
was eating Rolaids, and I couldn't call
them up."

athletes' inaction leads to loss

For Athletes in Action, their shoot-
ing touch may have been touched
from above.
In what was supposed to be a cake-
walk, the Michigan basketball team
was shocked by Athletes in Action,
dropping a 104-96 decision.
In a shooting performance that
would make Billy the Kid jealous,
AIA sizzled their way to a 68 percent
clip from the floor, maintaining
almost identical percentages in each
half.

"It's hard to win when you can't
stop the other team from scoring4'
Michigan coach Steve Fisher said,
"and we couldn't stop them from
scoring.
"They were literally on fire in the
first half."
Athletes in Action, an amateur
exhibition team, came out shooting
like anything but amateurs, connect-
ing on 24 of their 35 shots in the first
half. In addition, they nailed nine of
14 shots from behind the arc en route
to taking a 15-point halftime lead, 63-
48.
"I guess tonight we took our frus-
tration out on the nets' AIA coach
Chuck Badger said "We haven't shot
like this on the tour for a whole
game"
And it wasn't as if Michigan was
laying bricks for Athletes in Action to
build their lead. The Wolverines shot
a uncharacteristically strong 53 per-
cent from the floor in the first half,
including 56 percent from 3-point
range.
But when Michigan expected AIl
to fall apart in the second half, they
didn't. In fact, AIA continued to

0 With all the troubles the Michigan
football team has had in its last two
games, a trip to Columbus may not be
what the Wolverines need.
"The Buckeyes are 10-0 overall and
"linched a Rose Bowl berth with a vic-
tory over Indiana last weekend. They
are ranked No. 2 in the country and
haven't really been challenged all sea-
son.
Then again, that's an eerily familiar
scenario for Michigan.
Last year, Ohio State was No.2 in the
nation and undefeated but lost to
Michigan, 31-24, in Ann Arbor.
Two years ago, Ohio State had only
one loss coming into Ann Arbor, and
the Wolverines won that game 28-0.
""'In fact, the Buckeyes have won only
twice in the past 10 meetings between
the two teams.
thNone of that, however, is enough to
*keep Ohio State from being a 15-point
favorite Saturday.
And, as far as center Rod Payne is
concerned, the spread is probably justi-
fied.
"Coach (Lloyd) Carr tells us, 'You're
only as good as your last performance,'
which pretty much puts us at the bottom
of Division I schools, Payne said.
Michigan lost to Penn State, 29-17,
last Saturday and dropped a 9-3 deci-
*sion to Purdue two weeks ago. The
Wolverines turned the ball over 10
times in those two games.
It's those mistakes, according to
senior co-captain Jarrett Irons, that
knocked Michigan out of the rue for
the Big Ten championship.
"I think when we come out and don't
make any mistakes, we're a great team,"
Irons said. "When we go out and make
a lot of mistakes, we're a mediocre
team."
On offense, Ohio State has been
able to replace three of last season's
top NFL draft picks, receiver Terry
Glenn, running back Eddie George
and tight end Rickey Dudley, without
missing a beat.
On defense, however, the Buckeyes
have nearly the same personnel as last
year.
Only three players, freshman line-
*backer Andy Katzenmoyer, safety
Damon Moore and tackle Winfield
Garnett, weren't in the starting lineup
for last year's Michigan game.

You're only as
good as your last
performance,
which pretty much
puts us at the

1 schools"
- Rod Payne
Michigan football player
A game in which Michigan put up
484 yards of total offense, 381 on the
ground alone.
So why doesn't Michigan expect to
do the same this week?
"We're a different group," Payne
said. "This year we're struggling. I
know we were struggling last year, but
we weren't coming off two losses."
Carr pointed specifically to the
offense in terms of what has to change
for Michigan to win Saturday.
"I think it's a different year," Carr
said. "Certainly we're going to have to
devise a way of moving the football and
hitting some big plays, because Ohio
State does gang up on the run."
Michigan's offense improved last
weekend on its performance against the
Boilermakers, but not in the area where
it needed to most - turnovers.
Quarterback Scott Dreisbach was
responsible for four of the Wolverines'
five turnovers, including three intercep-
tions, and took responsibility for the
loss after the game.
That move may have upset Carr
more than anything else.
