Videotape shows
Knight choking
former player
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -A video-
tape aired last night shows Indiana
basketball coach Bob Knight grab-
bing a player by the neck during a
practice and pushing him backwards.
Two university trustees are investi-
gating the outspoken and controver-
sial coach following recent reports
from two former players that he phys-
ically abused team members.
Last month, CNN/Sports Illustrated
reported former player Neil Reed's
allegation that Knight choked him
during a 1997 practice. The videotape
obtained by CNN/SI shows Knight
grabbing a player by the neck, push-
ing him backward. The player's head
appeared to snap backward.
Knighttwas out of town and could
not be reached for comment. Knight
declined an opportunity to view the
tape before it aired, CNN/SI reported.
The allegations of abuse are the latest
in a line of incidents involving Knight.
Jets WR Johnson
headed to Tampa
NEW YORK (AP) - Keyshawn
Johnson will join the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers this week if the star receiv-
er can agree with the team on a new
contract.
A source close to the negotiations
told The Associated Press today the
Bucs and New York Jets have agreed on
a trade, contingent on Tampa Bay sign-
ing Johnson.
The trade, which would give the Jets
two more first-round picks for a total of
four, could have a major effect on
Saturday's draft.
"It's only up to Keyshawn and his
agent, said the source, who requested
anonymity. "The teams have an agree-
ment, but the Bucs have to reach some-
thing with Keyshawn."
If the deal goes through, New York,
which has the 16th and 18th overall
picks, would receive Tampa Bay's two
No. Is, Nos. 13 and 27, and probably
one of the Bucs' starting wide receivers,
Bert Emanuel or Reidel Anthony.
The Bucs would get the impact wide
receiver they want for what has been a
stagnant offense, and the Jets would
have enough to perhaps trade up for the
No. I pick with Cleveland.

Weather continues to be biggest foe for 'M' baseball

By Dena Beth Krischer
Daily Sports Writer
Yesterday, the Michigan baseball
team didn't get to play yet another
home game due to "precipitation of
the .rain and snow variety," or in
plainer terms, Michigan weather.
Missing out on the home opener
against Eastern Michigan was one
thing, but to the Wolverines and their
fans, it's beginning to get a little
absurd.
Yesterday's game against Ball
State was the third cancellation this
season - the second time in a seven-
day span after postponing the game
against Bowling Green this past
Tuesday.
The rescheduling of all three
games is still to be determined.
Perhaps the capricious weather
could be legitimately at fault for
Michigan's slow start in the confer-
ence season.
After putting aside an entire after-
noon to play a ballgame only to find
that it's been rained, snowed or
hailed out - and then have to hold a
practice indoors instead of on an
actual field - that can hinder a
team's performance.
DAILY SPORTS
SAVED THE BEST
FOR LAST.
CHECK OUT THE
LAST Tw o
PAPERS OF THE
SEMESTER.

How is a team supposed to jel
together on the field when it doesn't
even have access to it half of the
time?
Not playing a game for four days
until a four-game series the next
weekend is going to leave the
Wolverines as cold as the Michigan
air outside.
How do the Wolverines psyche
themselves after a five-day-long hia-
tus?
"It's just like every other game,"
freshman centerfielder Blake
Rutkowski said. "We just have to go
out hard, win and have fun while we
do it."
Although playing in the rain is
always a fun time, playing baseball
in the mud is not. Trv throwing a

baseball after it's been ground into
wet sand. It's hardly an easy feat.
But on the bright side, one weath-
er report says the clouds should clear
out by today and that the baseball
team should be able to get a game,
some live hitting practice and some
fielding under its belt when the
Wolverines take on Toledo at 3 p.m.
this afternoon.
Besides, it can't rain all the time.
Or can it?
There is another weatherman who
has predicted heavy rain and possible
snow. And since this is Michigan,
anything can happen.
If by some miracle the Wolverines
do get a chance to play today, the
game appears to be in Michigan's
favor. The Wolverines have won the

last six meetings with Toledo.
Sophomore right-hander Bobby
Wood (0-2, 7.65 ERA), who was
expected to start Monday, is not
expected to start today against the
Rockets.
Michigan coach Geoff Zahn is
going ahead as planned and starting
lefty freshman Rich Hill (1-1, 8.66
ERA).
This will be Hill's second start of
the season, and his first start since
picking up a win against Kent on
March 13. Hill leads the Wolverines
with 24 strikeouts in his 17.2
innings.
Junior catcher David Parrish will
have the opportunity to extend his
hitting streak to 14 games and con-
tinue sneaking up on former second

baseman Bobby Scales' Michigan

Parrish currently leads the
Wolverines in hitting with his .357
average, 35 hits, 7 homers{ and 25
RBI.
The start would also put Parrish
just three away from the 100 mark -
if he gets the chance.
Otherwise, he and the Wolverines
might be practicing indoors again.
