Penn State frosh
. is multiple threat
After departing early,
By David Horn

You would think that a quiet
week would be enough to dismiss
coaches' concerns over a hotshot,
flash in the pan
newcomer. But if FOOTBALL
there is one guy
in the Big Ten Notebook
who is on every-
one's mind - especially Wisconsin
coach Barry Alvarez's (who's Bad-
gers have to deal with him this Sat-
urday) - it's Penn State's
do-everything backup quarterback,
Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 231-pound
redshirt freshman out of Richmond,
Va., gives coach Joe Paterno's offense
yet another dimension of versatility.
Penn State was already loaded with
more legitimate offensive weapons
than most of its Big Ten competitors
when Robinson emerged on the scene
in the Nittany Lions' games against
Louisiana Tech and Nebraska. He
scored three times on three carries
against Louisiana Tech and added
another two touchdowns against
Nebraska. Robinson will line up any-
where - on the flank, in the slot, in
the backfield or behind center. Paterno
is comfortable using him to run (the
option, the reverse), to pass or to catch.
"It's obvious that he's a good
enough athlete that they want to get
the ball in his hands," Alvarez said.
"Anytime he takes the field you
have to be cognizant of all the
things he does and can do ... You
want to make sure you know where
he's lined up during the game, and
what he can do out of that particular
But last week against Iowa,
Robinson's productivity was
stymied. The Hawkeyes keyed in on
the young quarterback, and limited
him to four carries for minus two
yards. But in so doing, Iowa freed
up all other aspects of the Penn
"They have so many weapons, so
you can't overload on any one posi-
tion," Alvarez said. "That is an
offense that presents an awful lot of
problems because you can't over-
play one phase of it."
So MANY AWARDS, SO LITTLE TIME:
The Big Ten was noncommittal this
week in the distribution of Big Ten
Player of the Week honors. Two offen-
sive players - quarterbacks Brad
Banks of Iowa and Zack Mills of Penn
State - and two special teamers -
placekickers Nate Kaeding of Iowa
and Dave Rayner of Michigan State
- had to share the award.
It is no small wonder that the
Penn State-Iowa overtime marathon
produced so many honorees. Kaed-
ing connected from 55 and 47 yards,
and broke his own Iowa school
record of 13 straight field goals.
Banks set career-highs of 261
yards and four touchdowns, and
rushed for 41 yards to beat the Nit-

tany Lions in overtime. Mills rallied
from 22 points down to tie the
Hawkeyes and send the game into
overtime. He set a Penn State record
with 399 yards passing.
Purdue safety Ralph Turner, who
returned an interception 23 yards
for the go-ahead touchdown against
Minnesota on Saturday, was named
the defensive player of the week.
'PATIENCE MONTY, CLIMB THE LAD-
DER': With five teams in the top 25
and Ohio State ranked among the
nation's elite, the Big Ten looks to
be in healthy enough shape. Coach-
es in the Big Ten don't seem wor-
ried about the supposed "drop off"
or "death" of the conference, but it
is clearly not getting much respect
nationally. On his ESPN Chat Wrap
yesterday, ESPN commentator and
former Auburn coach Terry Bowden
had this to say when asked if the
Big Ten was "back."
"I wish I could agree with you but
I'm not sure that this is true.
Although Ohio State, Michigan,
Iowa, Penn State are all in the hunt,
I don't see anyone that I think can
win a national championship. I
don't think until they do that there
can be a true comeback."

Mike Cammalleri thought he was
giving up his senior year at Michi-
gan to live his dream when he signed
with the Los Angeles Kings over the
summer. Suffice it to say, his dream
didn't involve Manchester, N.H.
But that's where the forward will
start the season after the Kings sent
him to their American Hockey
League affiliate Monday night,
when they trimmed their roster to
"I thought I had a pretty strong
camp ... and thought I was progres-
sively getting better," Cammalleri
told the Los Angeles Times. "But I
guess decisions have been made."
Last season Cammalleri was
Michigan's top offensive player,
amassing 23 goals and 21 assists in
just 29 games. He served as one of
the Wolverines' alternate captains
and was named to the All-CCHA
second team. Cammalleri signed
with the Kings in late July, and at
the time, General Manager Dave
King told Los Angeles reporters
that Cammalleri threatened to play
in the Ontario Hockey League if
the Kings did not sign him. If Cam-
malleri had gone to the OHL, he
would have become a free agent
after this year.
Current Michigan senior John
Shouneyia, who counts Cammalleri
as one of his best friends, was sur-
prised that the former Wolverine
was sent down.
"He was doing pretty well up
there - the night before he got sent
down he had a three-point night -
so it was pretty tough to hear,"
Shouneyia admitted that knowing
Cammalleri will be playing in the
minors when he could be helping
the Wolverines defend their CCHA
title stings a little bit.
"It definitely hurts, but he chose
to play professional hockey and I
wish him the best of luck,"
Shouneyia said, adding that Cam-
malleri is "going to make the best of
Michigan coach Red Berenson is
one person who isn't surprised by
the Kings' decision, even though
they had told Cammalleri that he
would be on their NHL roster.
"The system puts these kids in a
vulnerable position," Berenson said.
"I think it was a bad move for L.A.
to start with, and unfair to the kid."
He added that Cammalleri "must
Michigan has lost six players to the
NHL in the last four years, including
Cammalleri and defenseman Mike
Komisarek, who also signed a pro
contract this summer after his sopho-
more season. Berenson has never
been a supporter of players leaving
school early, and Cammalleri's deci-
sion was no different.
"I just didn't think it made sense,"
he said. "I just don't think you give
up your senior year at Michigan to
play in the minor leagues."
Although Cammalleri's departure
left a sizeable hole in Michigan's
offense, Berenson said that's not
what he's concerned about right now.
"Our team is going to be fine
whether he's here or not. But I am
worried about the kid, what he's
going through ... and what he could
be going through," Berenson said,
alluding to Cammalleni's final year
of eligibility at Michigan. "You're
never going to get that back. You
can't buy it, you can't re-live it. So,
live and learn, but it seems like no
Alabama poised to upset Georgia in SEC clash
By Nicholas Flees
For the Daily
While defensive powers Southern Cal. and
Texas A&M match up against
high-powered offenses, Georgia ACROSS THE
looks to go 5-0 for the first
time since 1982, a year in NATION
which the Bulldogs fell just one
win short of a national title, when it travels to
Tuscaloosa to take on Alabama.
No. 7 GEORGIA AT No. 22 ALABAMA, 3:30
P.M., CBS: This weekend marks the 62nd meet-
ing between the two schools, but only the fourth
time in the series that both teams are ranked.
And despite Alabama's 35-22-4 lead in the
series, Georgia has yet to lose a game on the
road with coach Mark Richt at the helm. Georgia
enters the game undefeated, having beaten its
last two opponents, Northwestern State and New
Mexico State, by a combined 69 points in spite
of quarterback David Greene's broken right
(non-throwing) hand. But despite their domi-
nance in the past two weeks, critics of the untest-
ed Bulldogs still remain.
Alabama (4-1) enters the game on a three-
the michigan daily
game winning streak, with its only loss coming to
No. 3 Oklahoma in a heartbreaker in Norman
four weeks ago. Despite a season-ending injury
to starting tailback Ahmaad Galloway, the Crim-
son Tide will look to exploit a weak Georgia
rushing defense (ranked 1lth in the SEC) with an
explosive ground game. Filling Galloway's void
will be Shaud Williams and Santonio Beard, who
each posted 100-plus-yard games last week
Each team is capable of getting the ball into
the endzone. This game could potentially come
down to the final possession. A victory over
Alabama this Saturday ought to silence Georgia's
critics, but considering the formidable challenge
posed by the Crimson Tide, it won't happen.
Alabama 34, Georgia 28
No. 18 SOUTHERN CAL. AT No. 17 WASHINGTON
STATE, 7 P.M.: Washington State plays host to
Pac-10 rival Southern Cal. Saturday. Having
scored 40-plus points in three of their five games
this season, the 4-1 Cougars boast an extremely
potent offense, led by Heisman Trophy hopeful
quarterback Jason Gesser. But the 3-1 Trojans
feature an equally dangerous defense, which has
given up just 11 points per game. Southern Cal.
enters the game on a high note, after a 22-0
shutout of Oregon State a week ago.
A key to this game will be whether the Cougars
will be able to establish a ground game to set up
Gesser and their passing game. Southern Cal.'s
solid running game could pose a problem for the
Washington State's defense, which gave up more
than 300 yards on the ground against Maurice
Clarett and No. 5 Ohio State.
Expect to see an evenly matched game. These
are two solid teams whose only losses have come
against ranked opponents, with Washington State
losing to Ohio State, and Southern Cal. losing to
No. 13 Kansas State.
Southern Cal. 24, Washington State 23
TEXAS TECH AT No. 23 TEXAS A&M, 2 P.M.:
Texas Tech is an underrated football team. The
Red Raiders enter Saturday's game with a 3-2
record, coming off a 49-0 annihilation of New
Mexico, with losses to No. 5 Ohio State and No.
16 North Carolina State. But despite Texas Tech's
offensive firepower, its defense has become a lia-
bility, as it has surrendered a combined 96 points
in its two losses.
Texas A&M has been impressive, but its three
