jB Reno Gazette-Journal Saturday, October 19, 1985 UNR-Weber State From page 1B Weber State's defense is not nearly as strong as its offense. The Wildcats rank seventh in the league in scoring defense (28.4 points per game) and last in pass defense (277.6 yards per game). Part of the problem is that Weber State has played four straight passing teams in Eastern Washington, Portland state, Montana State and Idaho. With typical humor, Weber State head coach Mike ttice said, "We're not No. 1 in the country in defense, we re No. 1 in Ogden (Utah). We're improving. We nave a hard-hitting, aggressive defense. You'll be surprised. You'd think we were a bunch of cream puffs, but I don't think we're as bad as the stats indicate." "Their defense is playing a lot of man-to-man coverage with a lot of defensive back personnel in there," Ault said. "Of the films we have, they played their best defensive game last week. (Linebacker Mike) Powell is the obvious leader." Last week at Ogden, Weber State suffered a heartbreaking 31-28 loss to Idaho, which leads the Big Sky at 3-0 and 5-1. The Wildcats were driving for a possible go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter when split end Davey Davis, unmolested, fumbled on Idaho's 35. Earlier in the game, Idaho scored on a 66-yard punt return by Brant Bengen after Bengen appeared to be down and on a 46-yard field goal by Brian Decicio that bounced over the cross-bar. "I thought we played pretty well well enough to win, but we didn't," Price said. "We were unlucky. That's the first time I've ever used that excuse in a loss, but I might as well." Price admits he fears a letdown against UNR. "It will be interesting to see how the players react," Price said. "They've been up for three weeks in a row. We haven't had the greatest practices this week, but I'm confident that the players will come back. Reno's gotta get ready for us." Ault, in turn, is looking for four quarters of solid play from UNR. The Wolf Pack led Eastern Washington, 31-3, with one minute left in the third quarter last week before winning 31-25. "We've really emphasized that this week," Ault said. "We certainly haven't come close to peaking yet. We look at that very positively."

In a terse, 10-page ruling, McCurn denied McHale a preliminary injunction against the NCAA and Cornell. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive end sought to play this season for the Big Red although he had not been on the Cornell campus a calendar year as required by the NCAA. The national organization adopted the rule decades ago to keep players from jumping from school to school. However, McHale left Maryland after the 1983-84 school year not to play in a better program, but to enroll in Cornell's acclaimed School of Hotel Administration. He was accepted last fall and enrolled in January 1985. Cornell plays in Division I-AA, Football and McHale had to give up an athletic scholarship and pay the $14,000-a-year cost of rooms and tuition at Cornell to make the switch. McCurn decided against McHale's argument that he was not recruited and that his playing, therefore, "would not subvert the rule." THE SAN DIEGO Chargers Friday reactivated tight end Kellen Winslow and cornerback Terry Lewis, the club announced. Both are back from knee injuries. Cornerback Jim Rockford and running back Anthony Steels have been released. CLEVELAND BROWNS' Coach Marty Schottenheimer didn't care whether veteran Marc Wilson, who suffered a slightly separated shoulder last week, or rookie Rusty Hilger would be starting at quarterback for the Los Angeles Raiders this Sunday. "The only thing that would affect us from a defensive standpoint is if they said Marcus Allen isn't going to start," Schottenheimer said. HALFBACK CURTIS Dickey, who has missed 11 of the past 12 games after minor knee surgery, was activated by the Indianapolis Colts Friday and will play Sunday at Buffalo. Dickey had been placed on injured reserve after hurting the knee in a preseason game at Chicago. The sixth-year veteran has gained 3,456 yards in the past five seasons, including 1,122 in 1983. With Dickey out, the Colts have relied on fullback Randy McMillan and reserves George Wonsley and Albert Bentley to pace the ground game. Wire service reports Basketball Sheehan hopes Vegas stop pays off LAS VEGAS Patty Sheehan returns to her good-luck city of Las Vegas seeking a third straight big-money golf victory when she competes in the $100,000 J&B Gold Putter Award Playoff starting Saturday. Sheehan, a graduate of Wooster High School, defends her putting title on the greens of the Desert Inn Country Club and Spa, where there is a $50,000 winner's purse in the two-day competition. After winning the playoff last October, Sheehan returned to the Desert Inn in April and won the J&B Scotch Pro-Am and its $30,000 first prize. Only 16 members of the Ladies Professional Golf Association qualify for the putt-off the Golf defending champion, the seven with the lowest putting average, the seven leading birdie-makers and the golfer with the most eagles, this year Betsy King with 10. Sheehan said she doesn't have a special preparation strategy. "It's mostly a matter of staying relaxed," she said recently. "There's really not much you can do. You can't force it. You try to put your best stroke on the ball and let it go. I don't think there is any way you can prepare." GIL MORGAN and Scott Hoch finished the second round of the $300,000 Pensacola Open at nine under par Friday as first-round leader John Cook slipped into a group of four golfers a stroke behind the co-leaders. Nebraska slaps team, Iba for holding early practice LINCOLN, Neb. The University of Nebraska said Friday that its men's basketball team broke a National Collegiate Athletic Association preseason practice rule Oct. 7. The school said in a news release issued at noon that it has barred head coach Moe Iba and his assistants from attending team practice for five days. The action stemmed from a story in The Daily Nebraskan in which the student newspaper said it made tape recordings of Iba and assistant Randy Cipriano shouting instructions to players in a campus gymnasium on Oct. 7. NCAA rules prohibit coaches from running team practices before Oct. 15. Iba denied any wrongdoing. He said he was only putting his players through running drills, which the NCAA allows before Oct. 15. Athletic Director Bob Devaney also ordered Iba to issue a public apology to the university and "the university community," the release said. THE NEW YORK Knicks have signed New Jersey Nets star forward Albert King to a National Basketball Association offer sheet, the New York Post reported Friday. According to the newspaper, the free-agent forward agreed to a multi-year contract worth $600,000 a season. The Nets reportedly will match the offer. If the Knicks did sign King, he would join his older brother, Bernard King, who currently is on the Knicks' injured list. CANCEL THE GREEN size 16s. The Boston Celtics are back to basic black. The NBA team has switched shoe colors after 17 years of green sneakers because too many different shades of green were showing up on the court. "Why black instead of green or, say, purple? It's a basic color and it goes with everything," said David Zuccaro, spokesman for the Celtics. The shoemakers that pay the players to wear their brand-name sneakers evidently could not agree on the color of Celtic green, head trainer Ray Mel-chiorre said from Los Angeles Friday, the day after a 128-124 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
