and you become sort of a national
hero," Cammalleri said. "To win a
gold for your country-eit's a great
honor and I'm so excited for the
opportunity."
But, there are always negatives with
every positive - the Wolverines will
most likely be without three of their
top players, including their two lead-
ing scorers (Hilbert and Cammalleri)
when the Great Lakes Invitational
takes place Dec. 29-30.
The loss of Komisarek will hit an
already-depleted Michigan blueline
even harder, as the Wolverines contin-
ue to deal with the injuries to Dave
'Huntzicker, Brad Fraser, and Andy
Burnes. A shorthanded group of
Wolverines will most likely have to
deal with either No. I Michigan State
or No. 3 Boston College, after facing
Michigan Tech in the opening round.
But Powers said that the coaches
were fully expecting to compete with-
out a few players - much like they
have done in recent seasons - and are
aware that this is something their play-
ers can't pass up.
"I think it's incredibly special,"
Powers said. "To go over and represent
the flag, every kid, it just touches
them. This is a once-in-a lifetime
thing "

Redskins, 7-6, axe coach
with 3 games remaining

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - After the most
,expensive team in NFL history was booed
off the field, Norv Turner must have seen
it coming.
The Washington Redskins coach found
out for sure hours later.
He was fired yesterday for failing to
live up to expectations with a team once
considered a Super Bowl favorite. Owner
Dan Snyder made the move after watching
his $100 million roster lose Sunday to the
New York Giants, 9-7.
It was the fourth loss in five games for
the Redskins (7-6) and the third straight at
home, and it moved them close to elimina-
tion from the playoff race.
"It's all about winning," Snyder said.
"We assembled the best team we could put
together. At this point we just really need-
ed to make a change, driven with what I
call some serious leadership."
Turner, in his seventh season with the
team, leaves with a 49-59-1 record and
one trip to the playoffs.
He fought back tears as he said good-
bye.
"I've obviously been put in a good posi-

tion to have an opportunity to win," Turner
said. "This team has a chance to be 10-6.-
That's a disappointment to me. There's
part of me that would like to be a part of
it. There's part of me that understands why
it's necessary to make a change right now."
Passing game coordinator Terry
Robiskie was named interim coach. In his
first meeting with the team, he made an
impassioned speech and received a stand-
ing ovation.
"Terry is blunt and to the point," defen-
sive end Kenard Lang said. "He's like a
stick of dynamite. He's going to make
something happen."
It was stark contrast to Turner, an Xs
and Os strategist who never came across
as an effective communicator or motiva-
tor.
"Norv did not threaten players," guard
Keith Sims said. "Some guys took advan-
tage of him. Terry - you're not going to
take advantage of him."
Snyder said defensive coordinator Ray
Rhodes, the former head coach at
Philadelphia and Green Bay was not inter-
ested in the job.

Gymnasts si all-
around standout
The Michigan men's gymnastics
team recently inked all-around gym-
nast Geoff Corrigan. Corrigan, one
of the nation's top high school junior
gymnists, will join the Wolverines for
the 2002 season.
Under the watchful eye of coach
Ron Brandt, Corrigan has turned in
top 20 finishes in both the U.S.
National- Championships and the
2000 Junior National
Championship.

Donnan booted by
Georgia after 7-4 year
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -Georgia fired
football coach Jim Donnan yesterday
after a disappointing 7-4 season that
started with the Bulldogs ranked No. 10
and picked to win the SEC East, his
players said.
"I thought he would be around anoth-
er year," said quarterback Cory Phillips,
who was at a team meeting at which
Donnan told the team he'had been dis-
missed. "I'm a little bit shocked. It's an
unsettling feeling."
Athletics director Vince Dooley had
given Donnan a vote of confidence just
last month. But the players said Dooley
told them that school president Michael
Adams made the decision to fire
Donnan.
Being John Mackovic:
Arizona hires coach
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - After three
years as a TV footbail analyst, John
Mackovic decided he wasn't through
with coaching after all.
When Arizona called about the
opening created by the resignation of
his good friend Dick Tomev,
Mackovic jumped at it.
Yesterday, Mackovic appeared at a
news conference to be introduced a:
the Wildcats' new coach, the fourth
program he has headed in what will be
his 14th season as a major college
coach.
"The TV gig was nice, but it's not
coaching," he said. "It.doesn't have the
same feel of coaching."
