Two Louisville football players booted
Former Eastern Michigan coach Ron Cooper kicked two players off the
Cardinals' football team and suspended two others for breaking team rules, he

booted from the Nebraska football squad. Running back Corey Salee and
sophomore cornerback Chris Pointer will not return to the squad this season.
Defensive linemen Craig Powell and Mike Scott were suspended for one and

Carr in light mood asM
readies for Boston College

By Ryan White
Daily Sports Editor
Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr
has a secret weapon up his sleeve for
Boston College this weekend.
"Kevin Sullivan, one of the great
milers in the country, will be on the trip
and we're hoping to get him in if the
game goes into overtime," Carr joked.
Chances are pretty good that the game
won't go into an extra session but
Sullivan and the rest of the men's and
women's cross country teams, will be
on hand for the Wolverines' game Sat-
urday against the Eagles.
Both cross country teams have meets
Saturday morning in Boston and are
traveling with the football team.
The men are competing in the Boston
College Invitational, and the women
have a dual meet against the Eagles.
As for the football team, the Wolver-
ines are hoping to continue what has
been the best start for a Michigan team
since 1986 - the last time it started 3-
Things aren't all peachy, however,
for the Wolverines.
They turned the ball over four times
against Memphis Saturday and the of-
fensive flow was marred by penalties
all day.
Tshimanga Biakabutuka, Clarence
Williams, Mercury Hayes and George

Howell all fumbled the ball Saturday -
the first fumbles of the year by Michi-
"Three of the four were, in my view,
preventable," Carr said.
Biakabutuka's fumble came with the
Wolverines inside the Tigers' 10-yard
line on a bad exchange with quarter-
back Scott Dreisbach.
Howell's fumble was returned for
Memphis' only touchdown.
"We're going to have to work on
taking care of the football," Carr said.
"That's apparent."
He is hoping to have that corrected
before this Saturday's game against
Boston College.
The game poses a number of unusual
problems for the Wolverines. To begin
with, it won't start until 6:30 p.m.
Carr, however, doesn't plan to do
much to try to prepare the team for
playing at night.
"We may turn the lights down a little,"
he quipped.
Ofbigger concern to Carr is the crowd
noise. Saturday's crowd will be the
smallest the Wolverines have seen this
year, but it will also likely be the loud-
Carr hoped to get Dreisbach accus-
tomed to crowd noise against Illinois,
but the Wolverines took the Illini out of
the game before they ever really got

into it.
The Eagles' Alumni Stadium under-
went renovations last year and added an
upper level of seats that increased the
stadium's capacity to 44,500. In 1991,
Michigan's last trip to Boston College,
the stadium held 32,000.
Saturday is not only Boston College's
first home game ofthe year, but it is also
Carr is expecting the crowd to be the
loudest the Wolverines will encounter
this season, "and if you wait until six
o'clock it will be even noisier, I guess,"
he said.
Michigan got an early look at the
Eagles when Boston College lost the.
Kickoff Classic to Ohio State, 38-6.
"I think the Ohio State game got out
of hand for (Boston College)," Carr
said. "The long touchdown return by
(Shawn) Springs took them out of their
game plan."
Carr isn't expecting the same Satur-
day, and he's hoping the Wolverines'
defense will continue to get the pres-
sure it got against Memphis and that the
offense can put together some sustained
If it can't, Sullivan may become
Michigan's next two-sport athlete.
ftONORED AGAIN For the second
straight week, Michigan pulled in Big

Spikers'lineup not as potent without starters
Miniuk expected back this weekend; Luze and Tennis out for at least two weeks

By Monica Polakov
Daily Sports Writer
Every serious athlete has one fear
in common: injury.
Whether you are a football player, a
basketball player, or a golfer, you do
all you can to protect yourself.\ After
all, you do not want to sacrifice years
of training and hard work because of
a careless mishap.
However, everybody knows that
there is no surefire way to prevent
And when athletes do get hurt, they
not only hurt themselves but their
teammates as well -by leaving holes

Unfortunately, injury has occurred

Luze, an outside hitter, has a
sprained ankle. The junior landed on
a middle blocker's foot and tore three
ligaments at practice a couple of weeks
As a result, she missed the Georgia
Invitational, in which Michigan won
two out of three matches.
Now she is back and feeling 100
percent. Luze practiced with the team
last Tuesday and managed to get some
playing time in last weekend's Kaepa
"I feel good and I'm glad to be
back," Luze said.
Luze doesn't think that her injury
seriously affected Michigan's perfor-
"Our outside hitters are doing such
a great job that (we) haven't been
affected much."
Luzeeis impressed with the perfor-
mance of right outside hitter Jeanine
Szczniak, who is only a freshman.
The Wolverines also lost Chereena
Tennis, the starting defense specialist
and one of the best passers on the
squad, to injury.

Finally, Colleen Miniuk was out
with a strained knee but should be
back in time to go to the University of
Massachusetts Invitational this week-
She hit a wall and twisted her knee
during practice in the second week of
the season.
"The team played through the inju-
ries really well," Luze said. "Injury
didn't affect the lineup very much."
The Wolverines lost some the depth
but continue to improve.
"This year is looking a lot better
(than previous years)," says Luze.
"We've always had talent but (now)
we're really playing well."
