THE GETTYSBVRG TIMES, WEDNESDAY, JANVARY 4,1995 B3 FASTBREAKS From staff and wire reports Miami players to enter draft CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Lombard* Award winner Warren Sapp and running back James Stewart said Tuesday they'll enter the NFL draft rather than return to the Miami Hurricanes for their senior season. Sapp, an Ail-American defensive tackle, is expected to be a top- five pick in the April draft. Stewart, who led Miami with 724 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns, is projected as a second- or third-round choice. ·RIDGE OFFERS TO REWRITE FOOTBALL HISTORY HARRISBURG -- National football polls don j t matter in Pennsylvania. At least not when it comes to Penn State football, the state's gov.-elect said Tuesday. Tom Ridge, who will be inaugurated as governor Jan. 17, wasn't convinced by the results of two national polls making Nebraska the No. 1 college football team in the country. Ridge, a son of a Penn State alumnus and an avid Nittany Lions fan, Tuesday offered to rewrite the results for head football coach Joe Paterno. After his inauguration, "I will issue an official proclamation declaring the Associated Press and Cable News Network football polls to be null and void within the borders of Pennsylvania," Ridge told Paterno in a letter. LOCALLY ·FAIRFIELD'S ROTH SHINES AT PITTSBURGH MEET Amy Roth set two meet records at the 33rd Annual University of Pittsburgh Christmas Meet. Swimmers must achieve qualifying times to participate in the three-day United States Swimming Meet, considered one of the largest invitationals in the nation. Roth, 16, a Fairfield High School sophomore, set a meet record with her first-place Finish, a senior national time of 57.06, in the 100-yard backstroke. Her second meet record was a first place in the 200-yard backstroke when she swam a 2:02.16. Roth also made junior national times with a first in the 100 breast (1:07.05) and a fifth in the 400-yard individual medley (4.33.71). Roth placed sixth in the 100 freestyle and had the fastest swim in the 200-yard individual medley, helping her team, the Central Penn Aquatics Club, win eight place out of 106 teams.

So the decision was left to poll voters, who saw no reason to remove Nebraska from the No. 1 ,spot it held going into the bowls. "We're honored to be the No. 1 team," Osborne said. "It was a privilege to work with a bunch of players committed to one goal." Paterno said Penn State and Nebraska both deserved to win the title. ( "I feel very happy for Tom Osborne and a great Nebraska team, and I feel just as happy and pleased about my great football team," he said "The system is what it is and we can live with it, but nobody's going to take away the fact that I have a national · championship football team." His players weren't so diplomatic. "I think it's a crime that it's ' decided by a bunch of sports writers and not on the field," fullback , Brian Milne said. "I think in the ' near future, there should he some ' way if two undefeated teams end 1 up the way we did, that there is , some way to resolve it "We accomplished all the goals . we had to accomplish. The only Canners (From page Bl) "He's definitely been the difference in keeping us in ballgames this year," Kohler said of Rill. "He's getting the offensive boards we need and he's not afraid to put the ball back up and get the foul " But Fairfield's early advantage didn't last long The Canners scored the first 11 points of the second quarter and built a 34-25 lead at the intermission. The game remained tight through the third quarter, as Rill and Nick Hess (14 points) filled the net for Fairfield But when the fourth quarter goal we didn't accomplish wasn't in our control" A new bowl alliance next season will increase the chances of a 1-2 postseason game, but it wouldn't have produced a Nebraska-Penn State showdown because the Rose Bowl will continue to match the Big Ten and Pac-10 champions. It's ironic that/Penn State's decision to join the Big Ten a few years ago may have cost the Lions a national title If Penn State was still an independent, it could have played Nebraska in the Orange Bowl "I think Joe Paterno and I both have been in this business long enough to realize life isn't always fair," Osborne said. "There have been times when we didn't make it. I certainly have sympathy and understanding for where they are today." Nebraska received 511/2 first- place votes and 1,5391/2 points in the AP media poll, while Penn State (12-0) got 101/2 firsts and 1,4971/2 points. One voter made them a co-No. 1. In the USA Today-CNN coaches' poll, Nebraska had a 54-8 advantage in first-place votes and a 1,542-1,496 margin in points. "This is something I've dreamed about all my life, and it's been well worth the wait," said Cornhuskers defensive tackle Terry Connealy. Nebraska won consecutive titles under Bob Devaney in 1970-71, but Osborne failed to win one in his first 21 seasons despite having the best winning percentage among active coaches. While Paterno won championships in 1982 and 1986, this year's team joins his 1968, 1969 and 1973 squads as undefeated and uncrowned. Osborne knows what it's like to come up just short of a national title. He twice brought undefeated teams to the Orange Bowl and lost, to Miami m 1984 and Florida State last year. "The thing that stood out about this team was its resolve," Osborne said. "There was a lot of commitment in the offseason and during the season to get back down to Miami and win it. I don't think I've ever been around a team so dedicated to that proposition." Nebraska overcame the loss of star quarterback Tommie Frazier for much of the season Backup Brook Berringer was 7-0 as a starter while Frazier was sidelined with blood clots. Both played in the Orange Bowl, but it was came, the Green Knights' chance of winning quickly disappeared. Biglerville found success with the full-court press and quickly saw its lead rise to 10, 15 and then 20 points. May and Yohe scored seven points apiece in the final stanza. "That's our story of the year," Kohler said. "We're keeping everybody close and then we can't hang on at the end. It seems like every other game we show signs of greatness and then we turn around and we can't stop anybody." Biglerville won the JV game, 5946 Danny Walker had 19 points for the Canners, while Toby Cool added 15. Nick Riesner paced Fairfield with 10 points.
