* AROUND THE HORN
Madison may be 'buzzing' on Saturday
By Mark Francescutti
Daily Sports Editor
Is the Big Ten in trouble? Not really - but after most
teams struggled during the nonconference period, people
are questioning the midwest powerhouse.
a en State fell offtheAPTop 25 the first week, Illinois
a d Wisconsit squeaked by California and Cincinnati
this past weekend. Purdue and Michigan already have
losses. Indiana blew two games by seven or fewer points.
Northwestern and Iowa - well, they're Northwestern
"Three or four plays, and all those games could have
been different," Indiana coach Cam Cameron said. "Last
year the Big Ten won those close ballgames."
Well. nosw about half of them should get a 'W' as the
conferenee season begins.
t. 7 WIsCoNsiN: With a not-too-threatening oppo-
nent in Northwestern this week, possible bee swarms
remain the hot topic in Madison.
Wisconsin officials advised fans before the Cincinnati
game about huge swarms of bees that may enter the sta-
dium. Here's the warning from the Badgers' Website.
"It is suggested that you cover as much of your body
as possible in a manner that bees cannot access your
body and carefully examine your food and drinks each
time you partake. If you have a known allergy to bee
stings. it would be wise to bring your own self-injection
kit. The first-aid stations in the stadium and fieldhouse
the paramedics in the stadium are prepared to pro-
vide care fir those who do get stung."
No. 14 OHIO SI irE: The biggest problem facing the
Iluickeyes other than a young defensive front seven is that
they have to get up for a Peis State team teetering on
total disaster But John Cooper may be seeing deja vu, as
Ohio State dealt with much of the same difficulties last
season thiat Penn State struggles with today.
"You lose that first game to Southern Cal just like we
lost to Miami a year ago, and you lose your confidence,"
roper said. "It's hard to bounce back.
There's going to be some peaks and valleys"
The Buckeyes finished 6-6 last season, after replacing
a top-notch defense with a new load of freshmen - a
trend that continues this year.
"We only have two seniors (up front)." Cooper said.
"The rest of them are underclassmen. We're playing two
freshmen and a couple redshirt freshmen up front"
No. 19 ILLINoIs: While Michigan struggles with key
injuries on both sides of the ball, the Fighting Illini have
had the pleasure of a mostly injury-free starting roster
over the past couple weeks. Quarterback Kurt Kittner,
who sprained his knee and left the game against
California, is fine and will start against the Wolverines.
Kittner is 40-of-67 for 406 yards and seven touchdowns
thus far this season. ~
"He improved his accuraev from last year, he's making
quicker and better decisions" coach Ron Turner said.
"He's off to a good start."
No. 21 PURDIF: Tise biggest question surrounding
Purdue's 23-21 loss to Notre Dame continues to be the
lack of a passing attack. Brees completed only 13 of 22
passes for 221 yards with one interception. Meanwhile,
the zebramen threw a horde of yellow at the
Purdue committed 10 penalties for a total of 78 yards,
halting much of Purdue's offensive. Four of the 10 penal-
ties came in the final quarter; which halted the
Boiletmakers comeback chances.
No.23 MICHIGAN STTE: Three years, three wins over
the Fighting Irish.
But this season, the times have changed. Bob Davie
and Notre Dame aren't a has-been team of decades ago.
These Irish are up and coming. Nothing tells the story
more than its run through a gauntlet of a schedule __
knocking off Texas A&M and Purdue, while scaring No.
I Nebraska to death in a 28-24 overtime loss in between.
"Notre Dame is a much better team than a year ago:'
Michigan State coach Bobby Williams said. "I am very
impressed with Gary Godsey. I thought he did a great job
of taking that team down the field. He can move pretty
Williams also said Ryan Van Dyke should get the start
"Ryan practiced a little bit" Monday, Williams said.
He's a lot better than he was last week. I'll expect that
he'll be able to go on Saturday."
Running backT.J. Duckett has controlled the Spartans'
offense thus far, rushing for an average of 175 yards a
"We haven't thrown the ball a lot," Williams said. "The
passing game has to conic around because people are
loading up the box."
Up and coming
For the must part, conference play
has ceased by this'.Saturday, with
the exception of Notre Dame-:
Michigan State and Iowa-Nebraska.
Here are this weekend's games in
the Big Ten.
Northwestern at Wisconsin, noon

Iowa at Nebraska, 2:30 p.m.
Notre Dame at Michigan State, 3:30 p.m.
Michigan at lilinois, 7:30 p.m.' ,
Penn State at Ohio State, noon, ABC

be ose of the most crucial of the Big
Ten season. Now it's two middle-of-
the-pack teams, hitting each other.
Notre Dame at Michigan State, 3:30

Michigan State has won this game
three years in a row. And Spartans
fans are even wilder for afternoon
Michigan at lilInois, 7:30 p.m., ESPN

quite unusual. Add in the night start
and this becomes a game that could
be remembered for a while.

For the aily
The season opener for the Michigan
men's golf term at the Inverness
Invitational in Toledo ended etmsplhatical-
ly yesterday, as senior Scott Hayes rose
above the competition and finished first
in a competitive 65-man field.
Hayes - who was tied for third after
Monday - shot a one-under par 70 to
finish with a total of 213. He won the
tournament in a scorecard playoff' with
Fresno State's Nick Watney, who also
finished with a 213.
In a scorecard playoff, the last nine
holes for the two players are matched up
together. Hayes' score oilthe back nine,
34, was two shots better than Watisey's,
making him the winner.
Hayes was extremely ecstatic about
his first individual title at Michigan.
"This means a ton to me," Hayes said.
"This is the first individual tournament
title in my career, and to win at one of the
best venues in the world for a collegiate
tournament is very, very special.'
Hayes extended Michigan's streak of
at least one individual medalist honor to
five straight years.
The Wolverines couldn't fully capital-
ize on Hayes' performance. They fin-
ished tied for ninth in a field of 13.
Michigan turned in a score of 909, 31
shots behind the winner, South Carolina.
Considering the strength of the field
and the difficulty of the course,
Michigan coach Jim Carras was pleased
with the results of the tournament.
"In my 21 years with this team, this is
the second most difficult course I've

Another Purdue loss would really put the hurt on
quarterback Drew Brees' Heisman hopes.
INIANA: Is Antwaan Randle El tired out et? The
multi-talented quarterback rushed 39 times in the first
two gaies, while completing 25-of-53 passes through
the air. You think regular quarterbacks are important -
Randle El nosy accounts for more than 75 percent of
Ihis performance thus fr still hasn't been enough to
finish offihte Hoosiers'opponents. Indiana dropped a 41-
34 contest to Kentucky and a 41-38 matchup to North
Carolina State, something Cameron blames on fouirth-
"We were able to do it against Illinois last sear in over-
time," Cameron said. "We've just got to believe in what
we're doing and finish plays. We go right down the field
(against Kentucky) in a minute (to the 10-yard line) and
then we throw three incompletions."

Blue recruit is
By Raphael Goodstein
Daily Sports Writer
The newest verbal commitment to
Mn Michigan basketball team,
Wssmstattic Inmgersoui, at (s-hot-)
guard ranked by most recruiting ana-
lysts in the top 25, is academicallv
eligible and has received a qualify-
ing test score.
Ingersor averaged 20.2 points per
game last season and 5.7 rebounds
and 3.8 assists per game.
Monday, Hoop Scoop recruiting
analyst Clark Francis said,
Academically "he's a question mark,
>ig question mark. I've heard he
'ght not make the grades."
Ingersoin's coach at Santa Barbara
High School, Jeff Lavender, disputed
this statement. "He has a 3.3 grade
point average, and he passed his
tests," Lavender said.
Francis recanted: "I was wrong. I
didn't know firsthand. I'd never seen
Francis also previously said that
re are "real attitude questions"
a out Ingersols.
But the only attitude questions that
Lavender had about Ingerson was
with his trash-talking at summer
camps, which most camp players do.
"He (trash) talked a lot this sum-
mer at some camps,," Lavender said.
"While he was playing for me, lie
didn't. I wouldn't allow it."
Lavender said that Ingerson's
trash-talking stems from a me-
# inst-the-world attitude instilled in
him when he was growing up in
Last year, Ingerson moved to the
Santa Barbara area, where he now
lives with his aunt. Ingerson also
knew a friend he played with in All-
Star games, who lives in Santa
"He'll gravitate to whatever influ-
ences he has - good or bad,,"
Lavender went on to say that since
Ingerson began living with his aunt
in Santa Barbara, he has gravitated

Ingerson want to stay on the west
coast for college.
"He wasn't interested in the west
coast," Lavender said.

Chandler, a 7-fiot-h center, consid-
cred one of the best three prospects
in the country, has scheduled only
one in-home recruiting visit - with
Michigan, Lavender said.
Some expected that Chandler
would jump straight to the NBA, but
apparantly that decision has been put
Chandler is from Compton, Calif.,
and received a "We want Tyson"
chant during Michigan's 104-97 loss
to Duke last season. Chandler
attended the game on his own.
"Obviously, Tyson is a great bas-
ketball player," Lavender said. "le
and Dommanic would continue to
help Coach Ellerbe rebuild."
The Michigan-Wisconsin game on
Sept. 30 at Michigan Stadium has
been officially announced as a noun
start, ABC will televise the game.
Games at home against Purdue on
Oct. 7, at Northwestern on Nov. 4,
and at home against Penn State on
Nov. 11 are still officially listed as
"to be announced."
As the games draw nearer, televi-

games they will air. The contract
states the networks must stake an
official determination either six or
12 days before the game.
