Cameron fined for critical remarks w

From staff and wire reports
By Chris Duprey
Daily Sports Editor
One Big Ten coach is fined
for critical remarks about the
officials after his team's loss on
Saturday. Another reacts to a
sticky issue concerning his star
wide receiver. It's time to take a
look Around the Horn.
No. 5 Wiscoxsrx: Wide
receiver Chris Chambers began
his three-game suspension this
past week against Oregon. He
will sit this Saturday's home
game against Cincinnati. as well
as the Big Ten opener against
Northwestern on Sept. 23 in
NCAA rules state that missed
games due to injury cannot be
counted toward a suspension.
Therefore, Chambers must be
healthy since he has begun serv-
ing his three-game penalty.
Coach Barry Alvarez bristled
at a published report that
Chambers' injury would keep
him out until later in September,
implying that Chambers began
serving his suspension, despite
still being hurt.
"I think our medical person-
nel are more on top of that
issue" than the press, Alvarez

Indiana announced yesterday that it hired assistant Mike
Davis as interim basketball coach to replace the fired Bob
Knight. The move prevented potential problems with the team,
including the possibility that a number of players would trans-
"There was no way I could turn this job down" said Davis,
surrounded by the team at a news conference. "I'm sad by the
way it happened. ... Everyone knows Coach Knight is the rea-
son I'm here and why the players are here"
But, he added, "Indiana basketball is bigger than anyone."
John Treloar, another Knight assistant backed by the play-
ers, was also retained and promoted to interim associate coach.
"We're so pleased they're willing to go forward with us"
athletic director Clarence Doninger said. "We are presenting a
unified front today. We're looking forward to the future. We
know this team has great potential"
Knight was fired Sunday for repeated misconduct. Monday
the players told Doninger that Davis or Treloar had to be hired
as interim coach or every one of them would leave the program.
"There's no question they came to Indiana University to
play for coach Bob Knight," Doninger said in an earlier inter-
view. "We'd like to think they came to Indiana University
because of Indiana University, too. But I know the facts of life
here, and they came to play for coach Knight"
Dane Fife - who said Monday he had decided to transfer
- met with Davis and Doninger priorto yesterday's press con-
ference and decided to re-evaluate his early position.
"I've spoken with my teammates, and I was at a club last
night and somebody came on stage and said, 'Dane, you've got
to stay.' And the place just erupted in loud cheers," Fife said. "It
really made me appreciate what Indiana basketball is all about."
Yesterday before the press conference, Dane's brother
Dugan - who played guard for Michigan from 1992-96 -
said that if Dane chose to transfer, he wanted to stay in the mid-
"Michigan is one of the possibilities," Dugan said. "He is
also thinking of Michigan State or maybe Notre Dame."
But Dugan hinted that Dane would probably stay at Indiana
if Davis were hired.
"(Dane) hasn't asked for his release yet," Dugan said.
