Section 4 Chicago Tribune, Wednesday, October 16, 1996 Mine Views from out of bounds The Inter-Nate Connection It figures. Dallas Cowboys guard Nate Newton now has his own web page. Dial up and learn things. Like how he got so fat. "When I was in high school, my dad came up with this way to give me extra incentive for winning football games. Any time we'd win, he'd take me to Wendy's for a thing we called The Home Run,' which consisted of a single cheeseburger, a More Inter-Nate : Newton's home page also includes "The World According To Nate," where he offers random thoughts on random people. Like the Gimmick Formerly Known As Dennis Rodman: "The best rebounder, the best entertainer he's what makes the NBA fantastic." And William "Refrigerator" Perry: "Opened the door for fat guys like me. I havealotofrespectforhim." y The omen i The good news for Northwestern is that the only Big Ten teams that have gone to the Rose Bowl since 1974 are those that i have beaten Michigan (providing " Michigan doesn't go). The bad news is, the only two times the Wildcats have gone to Pasadena are the double cheeseburger, a triple cheeseburger, a large fries, a large Frosty and a large soda. We had a winning team that season, so I did put on some pounds." Steve Rosenbloom -LOCAL TEAMS AT A GLANCE OHome i OCT.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL Harrick reportedly cleared LOS ANGELES-UCLA basketball coach Jim Harrick has reportedly been cleared of violating NCAA rules in the sale of a car he owned to the sister of a top recruit. Neither the Pacific-10 nor UCLA would comment on reports that a conference investigation had not turned up any wrongdoing by the Bruins' coach. The conference and the university have been looking into the Sept 20 sale of a car by Harrick's son, Glenn, to Lisa Hodoh, The sale came two days after Baron Davis, the woman's younger brother, verbally committed to play for the Bruins. Davis is a highly recruited 6-foot-l-inch point guard who began his senior year at Santa Monica Crossroads High last month. , Jim Muldoon, the Pac-10's assistant commissioner, said from his Walnut Creek, Calif., office he could neither confirm nor deny the reports in Tuesday's editions of the Los Angeles Daily News and South Bay Daily Breeze. "We expect the investigation to be concluded by the end of the week," Muldoon said. "The process is not quite completed." f. ri W u AP photo Trial begins: Former NBA All-Star guard Alvin Robertson looks around the courtroom during jury selection in his burglary and assault trial in San Antonio. COLLEGE FOOTBALL Iowa's Shaw may miss Penn State IOWA CITY-Bruised ribs may sideline Sedrick Shaw, Iowa's all-time leading runner, for this Saturday's game at No. 10 Penn State, coach Hayden Fry said Tuesday. Shaw has been a model of durability during his career but has been playing hurt this season. He injured his ribs Saturday in Iowa's 31-10 victory at Indiana. Shaw, a senior, has gained more than 1,000 yards in each of the last two seasons and is trying to become just the eighth player in Big Ten history to make it three straight years. He has 449 this season. BRIEFS Byars goes to Patriots; Red Sox bid farewell to Greenwell Keith Byars signed with the New England Patriots on Tuesday, two weeks after being released by the Miami Dolphins. Byars, converted to tight end this year after spending his other 10 NFL seasons as a fullback, is expected to return to his old position, backing up Sam Gash. Baseball: The Boston Red Sox made it official Tuesday: They don't want Mike Greenwell back. The Red Sox designated the out fielder for reassignment on Tuesday as they shuffled their 40-man roster. Greenwell, an 11-year veteran, batted .295 with seven homers and was limited by injuries to 77 games last season. He has a .303 career average with 130 homers in 1,269 games. Baltimore Orioles pitching coach Pat Dobson will not return to the team next season. The move was made two days after the Orioles lost the AL championship series to the New York Yankees in five games. Horse racing: Skip Away will1 not run in the Breeders' Cup ) Classic.

V PRO FOOTBALL INSIDE THE BEARS Salaam, Harris could both play By Melissa Isaacson Tribune Staff Writer The Bears' backfield should get a much-needed boost between now . and its Monday night meeting at Minnesota on Oct 28, considering two more weeks of recovery time for Rashaan Salaam and the expected return of Raymont Harris. Harris and Salaam, a backfield the Bears envisioned as potentially one of the best in the league, never have lined up together. Harris broke his collarbone on the second offensive play of the season in 1995 and was out for the year. Salaam, who was a contract holdout in his rookie year, didn't start that first game. This season, Salaam missed the first three games with knee and hamstring injuries, during which time Harris injured his knee. Both should be ready Oct. 28 at Minnesota, but they still might not line up together. Harris is expected to get most of his work at tailback with Tony Carter to start at fullback. Harris, who had arthroscopic surgery two weeks ago, should be joined back in the lineup by defensive tackle Jim Flanigan, who strained his left calf three weeks ago. "Both would help immensely," said Bears coach Dave Wannstedt. Robert Green, however, also expected back from arthroscopic knee surgery, "is not quite as far along right now as Raymont is," Wannstedt said. "So he is doubtful" 32 starters: The Bears have listed 24 different players on the injury report during the first seven weeks of the season, and have started 17 players on offense and 15 players on defense. The injury list never, however, has included the names of Vinson Smith and Bryan Cox even though both have nursed various injuries. Cox has a sprained wrist and Smith has injuries to his shoulder and a slight ligament tear in his knee. Fresh blood: The Bpars filliji the With the Bears toiling in fourth place in the NFC Central, we will report daily on two Midwest football teams that are currently leading their divisions, the Green Bay Packers and the Indianapolis Colts. We will continue these reports as long as the two teams are in playoff contention. Packers need bye week to recover Brett Favre doesn't care to see the likes of San Francisco's Dana Stubblefield, Lee Wood-all and Marquez Pope any more, not even at Lambeau Field in the playoffs. "I'd hate to play them again, to be totally honest," said Favre, who called Green Bay's 23-20 overtime victory Monday night the most physical game in which he has played. The Packers have a 6-1 record entering their bye week, and the inside track to home-field advantage in the playoffs. They'll have to go the rest of the way without flanker Robert Brooks, however. Brooks, Green Bay's premier deep threat was lost for the year on the first play from scrimmage when he blocked cornerback Tyronne Drake-ford. The Packers said only that he suffered "ligament damage" and would likely undergo surgery by the end of the week. Indy racks up wins despite injuries : n The Colts (5-1) matched their a; best start since 71 1977 with Sunday r jght's 26-21 victory over ,-, Baltimore, but it has been .' anything but easy. So far, 10 starters have ; missed a combined 26 starts because of injuries, and the I number figures to grow for t Indianapolis' game with New , England on Sunday. Linebacker Quentin Coryatt was examined Monday for a possible muscle tear in his shoulder; tackle Tony McCoy i re-injured a knee, was kept in the hospital for treatment and . could miss at least one game; and quarterback Jim Har- -baugh spent Sunday night in 1 the hospital for treatment of -assorted ailments, none ' believed serious. ' "I have never been 5-1 t before," Harbaugh said. "It feels great. We got a lot of peo- ,', pie nicked up, and we've got r to get everybody healed up '". before next week." were left by putting Erik Kramer and Chris Martin on injured reserve. They re-signed first-year guard Octus Polk to the practice squad; second-year linebacker and special teams player Greg Briggs returns to the 52-man roster after being released three weeks ago; and rookie free-agent cornerback Rodney Ray was signed to the practice squad. Ray, a former Northwestern standout, was in training camp with the Miami Dolphins. Great expectations: Wannstedt continues to be tormented that he and his staff had such high expectations coming into the season. "I've been through difficult seasons like this in three or four other stops, but the difference has been, generally you go into the season and you know it's going to be a difficult year," he said. "The thing that makes this so devastating is that we really knew and believed, and it wasn't iust this was the best football team we've had in four years." Sidelines: The Bears are the only team in the league without a rushing touchdown this season. . . , Dave Krieg was indeed a bright spot Sunday. His quarterback rating of 131.1 (19-of-28 for 247 yards,",' three touchdowns and no inter-J ceptions) was the best by a Bears-quarterback since last season,. when Kramer had the same rating in a loss at St Louis. Krieg is just one TD pass behind Warren Moon for seventh place on the all-time list. . . . Fullback Tony Carter1 rushed for 37 yards on six carries, against the Saints. In his first 2V)i seasons combined, Carter totaled 37 yards on 11 carries. . . . For just the second time in four year?" Sunday, the Bears won the turn-; over battle but 16st the game., They are 15-2 under Dave Wannst-j edt when they have a positive takeaway-giveaway ration,'.' Aeainst the New Orleans Saints, it"
