U."knocks
off Cuba, wins
surpie gold
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - No names, no
more.
"I said that' when this is over, everybody in
,the world is going to know about these play-
ers," manager Tomn Lasorda said. "And by
4 olly, they do"
By doing what no one thought possible, a
ragtag bunch of US. minor leaguers won their
,country's first baseball gold medal and ful-
filled the prediction of its blustery Hall of
Fame manager.'
A 4-0 victory yesterday night over Cuba
gave the Americans an. identity as well as a
medal.
Ben Sheets_. the pitcher who brought the
Cuban baseball dynasty to its knees. Mike
Neill - the outfielder who homered and
mrade the diving catch that clinched America's
first Olympic baseball gold medal. Ernie
Young - the player who shoved the Cubans'
catcher and beat their hardest thrower.
,Beat them? They shut them out, leaving
thea without a gold medal for the first time in
the three Olympic tour-naments,
1The Big Red Machine of international base-
ball tore through the competition in Barcelona
and Atlanta, going undefeated while picking
up a matching set of gold medals.

America's band of minor leaguers knock~ed aft
Cuba 4-0 to win the gold yesterday night.
Sydney, where professionals were allowed for
the first time and bats were made of wood, not
metal. Thirteen of the Cubans already had
Olympic gold medals.
The Americans? They had a pitching staff
of high draft picks and an everyday lineup of
big-league castoffs. The most prominent play-
er was 37-year-old catcher Pat Borders, the
MVP of Toronto's 1992 World Series champi-
onsh ip.
"I know that when this team was picked, a
lot of people looked at the list and said, 'Who
are these guys?"' said D)oug Mientkiewicz,
who twice won games with homers.
In the end, they were the guys celebrating
on the field with flags draped around their
shoulders and a look-at-us-now expression on
their faces.

The Big Ten season continues on
Saturday with week two of confer-
ence play. After upstart
Northwestern shocked then-No. 6

ances. ~~~
Illinois ____ ____" ___
looks to
rebound from a disappointing loss
to Michigan, in which the officiat-
ing was deemed so poor by the
league that the conference issued
an apology to the Fighting Illini.
And Drew 13rccs returned to his
All-American ways, passing for
over 400 yards in a romp over
Minnesota.
Most teams will look to pick up
where they left off, or begin anew
in the second week of conference
play.
No. 19 PURDUE~ (3-0, 1-0) Nr
PENN~ S'v-vram (1-4, 0-1)
There are four things that fans in
Happy Valley want to see this
week. First, freshman cornerback
Adam Taliaferro leaving the hospi-

tal under his own power.[)octors
say spinal fusion surgery went well
for the freshman, and the I 8-year
old is determined to walk again.
Second, a bye week. Penn State
has to wait for Oct. 14 before a
week to regroup. Third, an offense.
Excluding a thrashing of Louisiana
Tech, the Nittany Lions have scored
just 1 7 points in four losses.
And finally, the fans would be
happy to see a team that struggles
to score as much as their beloved
Lions. Unfortunately, Heisman
Trophy candidate Brees leads a
poweiful Purdue team into State
College.
After throwing just 22 passes in
a loss to Notre Dame. Purdue
returned to its pass-happy offense
last week, and Brees completed 23
passes in the first half alone.
The Boilermakes hold the
nation's third-longest winning
streak against unranked opponents,
with 16 consecutive victories.
Through four games, they are aver-
aging 38 points per contest.
Penn State will conic out onl fire
with Tlhiaferro on their minds, ,but
they do not have the fire power to
keep up with Purdue.
Purdue 52, Penn State 13
No. 22 I.I~rois (3-1, 0-1) u-~
MINNitsUTA (2-2, 0-1)

The consensus in Champaign is
that the Illini are 3-0 against foot-
ball teams and 0-1 against football
referees for the season. Whether
that is true or not, Illinois is looking
for revenge this week against a
Minnesota team that has had pr~ob-
lems this season.
Last week, Drew .Brews torched
the Golden Gophers for 409 yards
and two touchdowns. Illini quarter-
back Kurt Kittner lit up Michigan
for 352 yards and two scores. Look
for an even bigger week from
Kittner against Minnesota.
Last season, the Gophers domi-
nated Illinois in nearly every phase
of the game, posting a 37-7 road
victory. It definitely will not be
that easy for the Gophers this week
--junior college transfer Travis
Cole will be making his first start at
quarterback.
But, the biggest obstacle for the
Gophers will be finding a running
game that punishes the Illini like
the Wolverines did last week.
Minnesota alternates two running
backs, Tellis Redmion and Thomas
Tapeh, who combine for 11 5 yards
per game.
Un fortunately, no matter how
many runni ngbacks the Gophers
throw at Illinois, none of them are
named Anthony Thomas. Look for
Illinois to get all the calls.
