Tuesday, September 17, 199! the Cincinnati enquirer College football, college basketballD-3 F XU is choice Bowling Green offers respite for UC of Cleveland prep standout BY JOHN ERARDI Since beating Louisville on Sept. 12, 1987, the University of Cincinnati's only Division l-A football victories came against Mid-American Conference teams (Miami in 1987, '88, and '89, and Kent State in '90). UC records since Sept. 12, 1987: 8-35-1 overall 4-2 versus Division l-AA schools 4-3 versus MAC schools 0-30-1 versus other l-A schools. The Cincinnati Enquirer ' Joe Rey thinks like he passes. Quickly. The senior-to-be basketball player from Cleveland St; Francis High School visited Xavier last weekend and immediately decided to become a Muskie. "He had up BY TOM GROESCHEN The Cincinnati Enquirer Finally, there's a game the University of Cincinnati football team can win. Seemingly. UC (0-2) is at Bowling Green (1-1) this Saturday. Bowling Green is a mid-level Mid-American Conference team, with roughly the same talent level as UC. L5M M?BlSSnM 132-16, in tosses to nationally ranked Penn State and North Carolina, have no excuses this week. "We should get a good barometer this weekend of what kind of football team we're going to be this year," UC coach Tim Murphy said Monday. UC has believed itself superior to the MAC since leaving the league in 1957, But times have changed. Today, UC is ranked by some the worst Division I-A team in America. The Bearcats own eight straight losses since beating another MAC team, lowly Kent State, 27-24, at Kent on Sept. 29, 1990. Bowling Green is a veritable vacation compared to Penn State and North Carolina, but UC can't approach it that way. "We remember last year,", said Latish Kinsler, UC coming visits anced than us, at this point. "We'll have to play very well to win." Bowling Green ranked 15th nationally in points allowed last year, and eight starters return from that unit. There are 12 local players on BG's roster, including starting cornerbacks Carlos Brooks and Ken Burress, both from Middletown High School. POWELL TO START: Tailback Vince Powell will make his first start this week, Murphy said. Powell's sprained left ankle limited him to 12 yards on eight rushes in his debut last week. HARP NO. 1: Lance Harp will start again at quarterback, after passing for 181 yards and two TDs. Normal starter Paul Anderson (injured shoulder) could return Sept. 28 against Miami University. IMPROVEMENT?: UC was 0-2 at this point in 1990 and had been outscored, 68-20. "I think we're ahead of where we were offensively," Murphy said, "but we've got to put more points on the board. Defensively, we've got to reduce the point total we give up, and cut down on big plays." PENN STATE DUMPED: Murphy was as shocked as anyone by Penn State's 21-10 loss to Southern Cal. Penn State beat UC, 81-0, the week before. "It shows you're never as good as you think you are or as bad as you think you are," Murphy said. scheduled for safety. "We can't go up there with our guard down." Bowling Green beat UC, 34-20, in the 1990 opener at Riverfront Stadium. Bowling Green didn't win for another six weeks, finished 3-5-2, and coach Moe Ankney was fired. "They rushed for 300 yards (actually 294) on us last year," Murphy said. "And several of those guys are back." Gary Blackney, former Ohio State assistant, is Bowling Green's new coach. This year, the Falcons have beaten Eastern Michigan, 17-6, and gained respect by losing only 24-17 to West Virginia. Bowling Green was idle last weekend. "Bowling Green is every bit as good as we are, or vice-versa," Murphy said. "They're more well-bal Herbstreit to start at QB for Ohio State "My mobility is something that I can add to the offense, said Herbstreit. "My ability to Providence, Virginia and Wake Forest," said Brian Becker, Rey's prep coach, "but he liked what he saw at Xavier and cancelled the other visits." Rey is a Jamie Gladden-type player, with excellent court vision, good shooting range and in-your-face defensive ability. He'll be an honorable mention prep All-America in the upcoming edition of Street & Smith's, says editor Jim O'Brien. That means he, ranks somewhere between No. 120 and No. 500 among the top prep players in America. Dave Krider, who runs a summer camp for high school hoopsters and rates prep players for USA Today, says Rey will fit well into Xavier's racehorse offense and pressure defense. "He's quick and he's athletic," said Krider. "He's also an excellent shooter, a good three-point kid." Rey played a combination of point guard and off-guard at Cleveland St. Francis, but will probably play more off-guard at Xavier. His stock went way up this past summer, when he made one of the Krider camp all-star teams and starred in AAU play. "Besides his physical talents and his heady play, , the recruiters have all remarked on how unselfish he is and how he makes the players around him better," said coach Becker. "He liked Xavier because of the coaches, the players and the family atmosphere. He , feels he can learn a lot from Gladden for a year or two." As junior, Rey averaged 17.4 points, six assists, 5.3 rebounds and 3.7 steals per game. "We like to get the ball into Joe's hands in the open court, because he's such a great passer," said Becker. "He doesn't have the numbers of some guards in the state, but we play one of the toughest schedules in Ohio. Joe's very good in terms of guarding the ball. He gives the dribbler a hard time. He's used to running and jumping a lot in our style of ball, and he excels at that." Among other schools interested in Rey were UCLA, Arizona and Michigan, said Becker. With only one scholarship open, Rey apparently will be XU's only prep recruit for 1992-93. get out of trouble is a little better than Kent's." The knock on Herbstreit is that he's all run and no pass, He has played in only 16 games and has completed 4 of 10 passes for 48 yards. "I'm looking forward to throwing the ball," said Herbs treit, who was moved to defen Cothran's play at all." On his last play, Graham went right, while the rest of the offense went left. "That's when we knew something was wrong," Graham said. Herbstreit, 6-foot-2, 213 pounds, is the son of former OSU captain Jim Herbstreit (1958-60), who played at Reading High. His grandparents still reside in Reading. "It's a chance to show the coaching staff and the people what I can do," Herbstreit said. "I've been waiting four years for this opportunity and I've finally got it." Herbstreit was an option wizard in high school. He directed Centerville's wishbone to a 10-0 record and was named the Ohio Back of the Year in 1987. Herbstreit. Saturday, Graham faked to Jeff Cothran and, before pitching to Butler By'not'e, took a thunderous shot from Louisville's Mel Mills early in the second quarter. During OSU's final scoring drive in the fourth quarter, he was slammed to ground after tossing a 21-yard completion to Brian Stablein. Three plays later the woozy Graham was pointed to the right sideline. "I can't remember any of (the plays after the second hit)," Graham said. "Evidently, Jason Winrow came over and asked me how I was doing. I remember saying, 'I'm all right, just get back in the huddle.' "I don't remember being in the huddle or any of those plays. I don't remember Jeff BY D. ORLANDO LEDBETTER The Cincinnati Enquirer COLUMBUS, Ohio Ohio State coach John Cooper's proclivity for-an option-style offense has cost him his starting quarterback. Kent Graham, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound converted option QB, suffered a concussion and shoulder separation against Louisville. The senior is expected to return for OSU's Big Ten opener against Wisconsin on Oct. 5. "We're taking him out because of medical orders," said Cooper. Kirk Herbstreit, a junior from Centerville, Ohio, will start at quarterback against Washington State at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Ohio Stadium. "We can win with any of our three quarterbacks and I still sive back earlier in his career and later returned to quarter back. "I don't know why I have such a bad rap for throwing the at Zmu 1 ball. It kind of upsets me. "I threw for 2,500 to 3,000 yards in high school. Kent Graham was hurt Saturday running the option. feel that way," Cooper said. "Kirk is a hard worker who has paid his dues."

Club officials said Monday there would be too many crowd control problems if they played on the middle Sunday of the two-week event a move caused by rainouts the first week. Fans and players thought it was a great idea. Instead of the staid crowd that usually fills Centre Court, a younger group of spectators many of whom spent all night on line for tickets created a carnival-like atmosphere with their enthusiasm. But club chairman John Curry said it would be impossible to ensure crowd safety if everyone knew in advance that tickets would be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Club officials made one concession: cutting the price of 2,000 unreserved Centre Court seats on the middle Saturday from $47 to $35. imph, RADIAL ATX" Onloft road 4 WD tire Deep-grooved tread Double steel belts Shock fortified Canada tops U.S. to capture Cup ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES HAMILTON, Ontario: Canada, playing without injured team captain Wayne Gretzky, got two goals from Steve Larmer to beat the United States, 4-2, Monday night and clinch their fourth Canada Cup in five tries. Larmer's second goal of the night, a short-handed effort at 12:13 of the third period, broke a 2-2 tie. U.S. defenseman Gary Suter, the man who put Gretzky out with a brutal check in Canada's 4-1 victory Saturday, lost the puck at Canada's blue line. Larmer skated in alone on goalie Mike Richter, pulled the puck to his backhand, and slipped it between Richter's legs. Dirk Graham, Larmer's teammate on the Chicago Blackhawks, scored into an empty net with 42 seconds remaining. Bill Ranford again was outstanding in the nets. Canada swept the best-of-three final and finished the six-country tournament undefeated (6-0-2). Canada won the Canada Cup for the third straight time.
