SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - Even
before the Olympics begin, officials
announced that three athletes and a
coach have been barred from the games
after positive drug tests.
Taiwan, already hurt by two drug
cases, ordered weightlifter Chen Po-pu
and coach Tsai Wen-yee home, Taiwan
Also barred from the games were
Bulgarian triple and long jumper Iva
Prandzheva and Kazakstan swimmer
The expulsions came on the same day
that White House drug chief Barry
McCaffrey praised the International
Olympic Committee for its progress in
the past 18 months in keeping drugs out
of the Olympics.
Chen was tested twice on Aug. 28.
After learning that the first test was pos-
itive, he waived his right to know the
results of the second test, Taiwan's
Central News Agency reported.
Prandzheva, the triple jump silver
medalist at the 1995 world champi-
onships, was considered a medal threat
at the Sydney Games.
He had been banned for two years
after the 1996 games following a posi-
tive doping test.
Yermakova, a freestyle and butterfly
swimmer, tested positive for a drug
masking agent, Furosemide, at a meet in
Monte Carlo in May, the FINA world
swimming association said in a letter to
Former Jet sentenced
to 18 months in jail
NEW YORK (AP) - Former New
York Jets star Mark Gastineau was
sentenced Wednesday to 18 months
in jail for violating court orders that
stemmed from his tense relationship
with his wife.
Manhattan Criminal Court Judge
A. Kirke Bartley sentenced
Gastineau, 43, to a year on his guilty
plea in April to a misdemeanor
assault charge and six months for
contempt of court.
Gastineau's lawyer, Sharyn Stein,
asked Bartley to give the former
defensive lineman another opportu-
nity to straighten out his life. "He's a
changed man." she said.
Bartley said as he sentenced
Gastineau, "I have given you beyond
a second and third chance."
The charges grew out of
Gastineau's flouting of a 1998 court
order of protection to stay away from
his estranged wife, Patricia Schorr.
and his failure to complete a court-
ordered, year-long anger manage-
Schorr obtained the protection
order after.Gastineau pleaded guilty
in October 1998 to misdemeanor
assault for hitting her the previous
month and threatening her with a
glass cocktail table.
Gastineau, who played for the Jets
for 10 years,. had previously been
found guilty of assault in 1984 and
was sentenced to three years proba-
tion in 1993 on drug charges.

For the Daily
The midway point of September
marks the time in college football
when conference play begins, and
non-conference games become even
more heated. After Nebraska and
Florida State pulled out victories by
3 and 5 points, respectively, it's
become clear that anything can hap-
pen in college football this season.
Just ask SEC power Georgia, which
was upset by Lou Holtz's South
No. 6 FLORIDA (2-0) AT No. 11
TENNESSEE (2-0): After playing
back-to-back patsies at home, the
Florida Gators take to the road for a
game that will go a long way in shap-
ing both the SEC and national title
Defense, emotion and the occa-
sional fight have characterized this
series in the past and this year should
be no different.
The most important player in this
game might be Tennessee running
back Travis Henry.
Henry rushed for 135 yards in the
opener and needs to establish him-
self early to help take the pressure
off Tennessee's quarterback, third-
stringer A.J. Suggs.
The defenses are both so good
they almost cancel each other out.
Florida's running game doesn't mea-
sure up to Tennessee's, and that's
why the Volunteers will win this

No. 9 WASHINGTON AT
CoLoRAo: Washington coach Rick
Neuheisel's first trip to Colorado
since he bolted from the school to
take his current job might provide
enough emotion for a Colorado
Add the frustration of two heart-
breaking losses and the fact that this
is its home opener and Colorado
should be ready to go for this one.
Washington, meanwhile, has
established itself as a typical Pac-10
team: Offensively powerful and.
But, the Huskies have won their
first two games on the arm and legs
of quarterback Marques Tuiasosopo.
Not only is Tuiasosopo is the
team's leading passer with 446 yards
and two touchdowns, but he is also is
the team's leading rusher with 125
yards and two more touchdowns on
the ground. Granted, this doesn't say
much for the rest of Washington's
ground game, but Tuiasosopo has
proven that he can almost single-
handedly win football games. Hie
may get entered into Heisman
Trophy talk if Washington keeps

NORTH CARo.INA AT No. 2
FLORIDA STxr: It's no secret that
Florida State traditionally boasts one
of the best defenses in the country,
and this year is no different. Add in
the explosive offense led by 28-year
old senior citizen quarterback Chris
Weinke and Carolina will be tested
North Carolina always gets up for
the Florida State game, based on
their tough defense, and then gets
crushed over and over again. The
main difference in this year's battle
is that the Tar Heels have a solid
offense as well.
North Carolina has the personnel
to keep it close, but going into
Tallahassee is never an easy task. It
would take a career day from quar-
terback Ronald Curry and just about
every other North Carolina' offensive
player, as well as a stifling defensive
performance to keep the Tar Heels
close. Florida State just has too
much firepower to be beaten in the

ALABAMA: Southern Mississippi

After a week off following a loss
to Tennessee, Southern Mississippi
prepares to head back into SEC
country, as it makes the trip down to
Alabama to see if it can roll the Tide.
Over in Alabama, coach Mike
DuBose surprisingly named Tyler
Watts the starter for this week's
game, replacing Andrew Zow.
The Alabama defense was much
more solid this past week against
Vanderbilt than it was in the season-
opener against UCLA - the Bruins
ran up 35 points and almost 400 total
vards in shellacking the stunned

ity - with its game against

No. 5 TEXAS AT STANFORD: Guess
what? Texas has a quarterback con-
The Longhorns have yet to make
clear who wi1 start between Chris
Simms and Major Applewhite in
Texas' trip to Stanford on Saturday.
Stanford knows all it needs to know
about how tough Texas can be on
both sides of the ball after suffering
a disgraceful 69-17 loss to the
Longhorns last year, with
Applewhite at the Longhorns' helm.
Stanford won on the road at
Washington State to start the year,
but then lost to San Jose State at
home last week, so no one really
knows where the Cardinal is going.
Stanford has talent, but will it gel
like it did last year when the
Cardinal went to the Rose Bowl?
Don't count on it.
