SPARTANS
Continued from Page 13
"I wish we didn't have to play 'em,"
he said. "If they play better in practice,
they'll play in the game. But it helps
depth to play them."
Hawkins, who is only 17, has been
forced to fill in at the linebacker position
because ofsophomore starter Ike Reese's
broken hand and deep leg bruise.
In five games, two of which he started,
Hawkins has compiled 12 tackles, three
for a loss, and a sack. These are impres-
sive numbers for a player who said he
'expected only to play special teams this
season.
"Hawkins played a heck of a game
(against Boston College)," Saban said.
"He had a sack and a tackle for loss."
Despite becoming one of the mar-
quee figures on the team, Hawkins said
the freshmen stick together and help
each other out during the transition from
high school to the Big Ten.
"You've got so many guys much
bigger than you. We try to make it like
a family," Hawkins said. "We call each
other 'the brothers,' we hang out to-
gether, order pizza."
tOne of the surprises of the fall has
been Gould's story. The Troy native
showed up at practice at the beginning
ofthe school year and within two weeks
was playing against defending National
Champion Nebraska.
"I didn't expect that at all," he said.
"I've learned a lot."
'Gould wears No. 45, the same num-
ber Dan "Rudy" Ruettiger wore in the
1993 film "Rudy" about the famed Notre
Dame walk-on. He said he doesn't think
Saban is playing younger players to
build for the future, but to win now.
"They deserve to be in there," Gould
said. "(Saban) said he's not playing for
the future, but he's going to put the 11
best players out there."
Hawkins said that if some of the
higher-touted high school players see
freshmen playing at Michigan State,
they might consider coining to East

Michigan State's Courtney Ledyard (53) is surprised at how many freshmen are playing for the Spartans this season.

Lansing rather than redshirting in other
programs.
"It brings more unity and brings more
attention to the team," he said.
Another player who has been thrust
into the limelight is Chapman. Entering
fall practice, he was low on the tight-
end depth chart. But as the season pro-
gressed, Chapman turned his efforts on

the practice field into playing time.
Against Boston College, Chapman
caught a three-yard touchdown pass from
sophomore quarterback Todd Schultz.
It was his first-ever catch as a colle-
gian and pulled the Spartans to within
five points of the Eagles in the third
quarter. Michigan State eventually won
the game, 25-221.

Miami guilty of six NCAA violations

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -
The University of Miami publicly
admitted guilt Tuesday on six of 10
NCAA charges but denied the most
damning allegation -lack of institu-
tional control.
School officials will attend a
hearing Nov. 10 before the NCAA
Committee on Infractions to dis-
cuss institutional control and three
other allegations. Sanctions will
.likely be announced by the end of
December,
"There is a relief," athletic director
Paul Dee said, "in that we're finally
going to get to the end of this, we
hope."
Probation could include a ban on
bowl game and TV appearances for
one or more years, as well as scholar-
ship reductions.
At a news conference, the uni-
versity released a summary of the
10 NCAA charges.
Three involve a Pell Grant scan-
dal that prompted a federal inves-
tigation and led to the conviction
of former university academic ad-
viser Tony Russell, who admitted
falsifying the Pell Grant applica-
tions of 91 students, including 85
athletes.
The NCAA, which began its inves-
tigation four years ago, alleges that a

lack of institutional control made the
financial fraud possible.
"That is the allegation that car-
ries with it the most likely heavy
penalty," university president Ed-
ward Foote said. "Our position is
that there was extensive wrongdo-
ing with the Pell Grants, but it was
orchestrated by one employee who
has admitted that he did it and who
is long since gone.
"We know of no other represen-
tative of this institution who was
involved in any respect.
"Our position is that it is not a lack
of institutional control."
Russell has said repeatedly that he
acted without the knowledge of any-
one at the university.
The school also denies that rap star
Luther Campbell's special treatment
of football players constituted an
NCAA violation, saying Campbell
wasn't affiliated with the school as a
booster or season-ticket holder.
Miami admits violating NCAA
rules by failing to follow its own
drug-testing policies.
The school also acknowledges a
play-for-pay scheme involving at
least one former football player, ij-
accurate room and board calculations
and excessive distribution of books
to athletes.

Chapman said the experience was
like nothing he had ever experienced.
"It's a little strange, it was just like a
video game, but I liked it a lot," he said.
Saban got a late start in recruiting last
winter because he was with the Cleveland
Browns until January, but the results he
has produced so far may open up the prep
talent pipeline for the future.

the hamstring as he did last weekend
against Wisconsin.
While no one but the coaches really
knows what's going on, Carr is guess-
ing that the Spartans may not be in as
bad a shape as Saban is letting on.
"First of all, I'm sure they're close to
100 percent," Carr said. "I don't think
you believe everything that's in the
papers.
"I think you make a huge mistake if
you buy everything that's reported."
So will this affect the way the Wol-
verines spend this week getting ready
for Michigan State?
"We always prepare for a guy to play
until we hear he is out," Carr said.
Who to start?

University of Miami president Edward
Foote admitted the school's guilt in six
of 10 NCAA charges against the
school. Sanctions on the University
should be announced by the end of
December.
Current Miami players shrugged the
latest disclosures. The Hurricanes are
4-3 and still in contention for a bowl
bid - perhaps their last one for sev-
eral years, depending on how the
NCAA rules.
"There's nothing we can do about
it," sophomore center Mike Wehner
said. "We weren't here when the play-
ers did whatever. We've got to take
whatever the NCAA gives us, and
hope it's not much."
