EAST LANSING. Mich. (AP) -
Michigan State coach Nick Saban must
feel like he's dreaming. Only they're not
dreams. These are nightmares for any
college football coach, and they are very
real. They are option quarterbacks.
First it was Oregon's Akili Smith,
then it was Notre Dame's Jarious
Jackson. Now comes Indiana's Antwaan
Randle El, just itching to spoil the
Homecoming festivities at Spartan
Michigan State (0-1 Big Ten, 2-3
overall) couldn't handle Smith at
Oregon. But the Spartans rebounded to
pin a 45-23 loss the Fighting Irish. Still,
that doesn't make Saban feel any better
about getting ready to face Randle El.
Randle El has been the focus of the
Hoosiers offense. He has passed for 878
yards and four touchdowns and also
leads the teams in rushing with 234 yards
Saban, State scared of
Indiana's Randle El
and five touchdowns.
"He's an outstanding player" Saban
said. "He's got big-play capabilities. Hc's
one of the leading total-offense guys in
the Big Ten"
The Hoosiers (0-1, 2-2) have become
an offensive threat this season, and the
redshirt freshman is a big reason why.
Indiana's two losses have come at the
hands of Kentucky and Wisconsin -
both noted offensive powers - by a total
of just eight points.
"They have tremendous balance,"
Saban said. "He runs the option well,
he's a good thrower, and he's very athlet-
ic. He is always a threat to scramble and
Last week, in a 24-20 loss to
Wisconsin, Indiana had more yardage
than the Badgers (29 1-253). Randle El
passed for 145 yards and ran for 34
A note of explanation on Staff Picks:
One quick word about those picks, folks. They're made against the spread That means this:
MICHIGAN STATE (-10) vs. Indiana
'actually means that ifJames Miller picks the Hoosiers to win, they don't actually have to win
the game - theyjust have to be within 10 points ofMichigan State. So if Michigan State wins
by 9 points or fewer, Miller wins that game - even though the team he picked actually lost.

There was even a minor uproar in
recent years involving the high
school basketball tournament.
Indiana went from the single-class
tournament to a mutli-class tourna-

season from happening again.

With a state that cares more about
