Blue harrier Gardner
hurdles into 400m semis

Former 'M' tennis star
Malival Washington ousted
from Olympic tournament
By Will Mc~ahill
Daily Sports Editor
He ran faster than he'd ever run before, and he
picked the perfect time to do it.
Michigan senior Neil Gardner, running in the
Olympic Games for Jamaica, qualified for
tonight's semifinals in the 400-meter hurdles.
With a time of 48.59 seconds, Gardner eclipsed
his personal-best time by more than half a second.
The time also set a new Jamaican record.
Although he finished fourth in his heat - the
seventh and final preliminary heat in the event -
his time was fast enough for him to advance to the
semis.
In the event, the top two finishers in each heat
advance to one of two semifinal heats. In addition,
the two fastest finishers not in the top two move on.
Both of these latter qualifiers came from
Gardner's heat, the fastest of the seven preliminar-
ies. In fact, only two runners in other heats had

times faster than the Jamaican's.
Gardner now moves on to tonight's semifinal
round, where he will run in the second heat, sched-
uled to start at 7:25 p.m.
Gardner, running in lane 1, will be up against two
men with faster qualifying times. Zambia's Samuel
Matete, who recorded the fastest time in any heat at
:48.21, will run in lane 6.
Meanwhile, the man who finished ahead of
Gardner in heat 7, Everson Teixeira of Brazil, will
run in lane 4. Teixeira beat out Gardner by th0
slimmest of margins, five one-hundredths of a sec-
ond.
The top four finishers in each semifinal heat
advance to the finals, set for tomorrow evening.
Yesterday, fourth-seeded American MaliVai
Washington was upset by unseeded Spaniard Sergi
Bruguera in Olympic tennis competition.
The former Michigan star was serving for the
match at 5-4 in the third set, but double-faulted at
break point.
Washington ended up losing 7-6 (10-8), 4-6, 7-0
- The Associated Press contributed to this
report.

Who would have thought that with a
month left before the 1996 football sea-
son begins, Michigan football coach
Lloyd Carr would be talking about the
next millenium?
All of Carr's focus has been on the
upcoming season since the beginning
of February.
But with last week's announcement
by ABC Sports that the Rose Bowl will
be added to the bowl alliance - which
determines a national champion team

- starting in 1999, the second-year
head coach is not looking forward to
the major bowls of 2000.
Or to the effects the alliance is going
to have on college football even farther
down the road.
"This is going to lead to an extension
of the season because I see a playoff as
inevitable;' Carr said. "I don't think
there's any question that a playoff sys-
tem is going to happen and any exten-
sion of the season is not in the best
interest of the student athletes."
His other criticism of the deal focus-

es on what is likely going to happen to
the Big Ten.
"It will not take very long till the Big
Ten championship loses it signif*
cance,' Carr said. "It's just like the bas-
ketball situation where the entire
emphasis on
making the
NCAA tourna-
ment. Nobody
cares who wins
the Big Ten
championship."
"Eventually,
the conference
will be weak-
ened consider-
ably, so will all Carr
conferences ... I
think we are headed towards some-
thing, in my view, that is getting away
from the intent of college football."
But that's all Carr is going to say
about the alliance for now because it's
the near future that is most relevant.
Michigan opens up the 1996 season on
August 31 at home against Illinois. *
It's back to the gridiron.
The freshman class will start prac-
tice Monday, the varsity players next
Thursday. Media Day - when media
members converge on the team for
interviews - will follow next Friday,
with full-team practice beginning next
Saturday.
Carr said he is anxious to see the
newest Wolverines, who will
watched by the coaches for the fi
time.
As for the players returning from last
year, the defensive squad looks to be
Michigan's strength and the offense is
