Wednesday's Clipboard

Nov. 11, 1998

Tuesday's sports page had some errors, which I would like to correct.

*The point guard for the Baylor men's basketball team is Tevis Stukes, a New Orleans junior.

* Sunday, the women's soccer team earned a bid to the NCAA tournament, not the Big 12 tournament. Come see them at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Baylor Soccer Complex.

* The mascot of Kansas State University is a Wildcat, not a 'Wildact.' Spell check is my fiend. Spell check is my friend.

This week, there will be no bashing of the football team. Our Bears played very hard, especially after losing offensive lineman and team leader Kelvin Garmon to a leg injury in the first quarter. Baylor ran the football better against the Wildcats than most other teams this season, and displayed great effort, even after falling behind 14-0 in the first four minutes.

For this Saturday's game,

Baylor is favored over the University of Oklahoma. Not only is it the Bears' last home game of the season, it's my last home game as a student. You all better be there, and don't leave until the game is over, because Baylor is going to stick it to the Boomer Sooners.

Last week's trivia winner was John McAuliffe, a Katy sophomore, who knew that the only college football teams to win more than nine games in each of the last five years are Kansas State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State, Florida and Florida State. Congratulations.

This week's trivia question deals with men's hoops, since the exhibition season began with a late game last night against Macedonia. Brian Skinner was a first-round draft pick for the Clippers this summer, but he was not the highest-drafted player in Baylor history. For a shot at eternal glory, e-mail the name of the player, his nickname, the year he was drafted and his position in the draft to Matthew_Kuzma@baylor.edu.

As always, the winner will receive an Oatmeal Creme Pie and recognition in Baylor's favorite student-led newspaper.
