Page 4 The Battalion Monday, July 27,1992 Barone begins search to replace assistant men's basketball coach By Doug Foster The Battalion When Texas A&M assistant basketball coach James Green decided to leave Aggieland for a job at the University of Alabama, head coach Tony Barone was left with the job of finding a suitable re placement to Green on his bench. Barone is now begin ning that search, and said the process should be com plete by die first week of August. Entering his second season as head coach at A&M, Barone said the decision could be vital to es tablishing the kind of program he wants for the future in Col lege Station. "I think this decision is critical because the guy who comes into this position is going to have to buy in to what we have to do to be suceessful/' , Barone said. "And that's not just going out Barone and bringing in bodies. We want to bring in a certain type of student athlete and this choice is important for that." Barone said his selection process will consist of placing the applicants into one of four groups, selecting the best from each of those groups and making the final decision from those four people. "We have to set up the criteria for the type of person we want," Barone said. "I'm going to look at guys who are veterans in this business, some high school coaches, some people who have strong ties within the state and some people that I am interested in myself. 'TT1 pick the best of each of those categories and make my decision." After making his choice, Barone will recommend his can didate to Athletic Director John David Crow. According to ath letic department policy. Crow will then make the final decision on the hiring , taking Barone's recommendation into considera tion. Despite the adversity the A&M basketball team went through last season, Barone said he feels because of the wide amount of interest that has been shown, this is one of the top coaching opportunities in the na tion. 'T've talked to a lot of people to find out what kind of interest there is, and I already have over 60 resumes on my desk," Barone said. "1 think this is one of the top 10 assistant coaching oppor tunities in the country." Barone said this opening would offer a big chance for an assistant to make his mark, and said the type of person he was looking for was someone who eventually wanted to move on to a head coaching position in ma jor college basketball. "We want someone who is going to come in here with a tremendous amount of enthusi asm," Barone said. "We also want someone who is going to look at this job as an opportunity to take a program that was floundering and move that pro gram into the top 25 in the coun try. "1 think assistants who will do those things will become head coaches. If you don't ac cept those type of things as a challenge, you will never be a head coach in Division I basket ball. And I want assistants who want to be head coaches."

For Sale A&M, OU to start football series in '93 From Staff and Wire Reports Texas A&M University will renew its football rivalry with the University of Oklahoma in 1993. The joint announcement was made last week by Texas A&M Athletic Director John David Crow and Oklahoma Athletic Di rector Donnie Duncan. The two-game series will be gin in Norman in 1993 and will move to College Station in 1994. Discussions are still ongoing re garding the dates. There has been some speculation that A&M would use Oklahoma to replace a non-conference game with the University of Southwestern Louisiana in mid-September. The Aggies had to remove one team to stay within the NCAA regulation 11-game season. The Sooners hold a 7-5 advan tage over A&M since the series began back in 1903 with Okla homa winning 6-0. The schools met every year from 1944 through 1951 with the Aggies winning the last meeting, 14-7. "This series is great for college football," Crow said. "These two schools have tradition-rich pro grams and the support of both schools will make for quite an ex citing event." "The University of Oklahoma and Texas A&M University are always among the nation's best," Duncan said. "This series offers college football fans in Norman, College Station and across the country the opportunity to see two of the best in action." Richardson Continued From F^ge 3 Richardson. In keeping with an honored Houston training camp tradition, he, along with the rest of the Oiler rookies, received a com plementary haircut from the veter- Life on an expansion team Former A&M pitcher thrives in Rockies' farm system By Michael Plumer Tl'ie Battalion With the National League expanding by two teams next year, a former Texas A&M pitcher is try ing to become a part of baseball history. Jason Hutchins, a member of the 1992 A&M squad, is striving to be in Denver for the first pitch of the Colorado Rockies' inau gural season. Until then, he is biding his time in the Rockies' minor league system. "Right now, I am not sure where I will be next year but of course I would like to be in the majors," Hutchins said. "They will let me know sometime in the near future where I will be." For the moment, Hutchins is pitching in Bend, Oregon, for the Rockies' short season Single A team. He said that the Pacific Northwest did not let him down with its picturesque and beautiful scenery. "Bend," he said laughing, "well. Bend is different. It is a small town in the middle of a forest but it is pretty. "This is a lot like the area where Kindergarten Cop was filmed. I keep waiting for Arnold (Schwarzenegger) to come out of the forest with loaded guns," he said. With all the imagery aside, Hutchins' main job is to get batters out. As his team's closer, it is up to him to slam the door on opponent's rallies. So far, he has performed adequately. "Right now, I am doing well," he said. " My record is 0-0 but I have 9 saves and 1.61 ERA." In entering the league as an expansion team along with the Florida Marlins, the Rockies present a unique opportunity to Hutchins that has not been available to players since the late 1960s when base ball last expanded. "With them being new, this is a good thing to get into but it is not an easy way to the majors," he said. "It can be a quick way up, though. "The main thing has been the attitudes of the managers, coaches, and owners. They treat us well plus there is a lot of excitement which is an added bonus. That makes me and my teammates want to try harder to succeed." Although Hutchins was not drafted by an estab lished major league team, A&M baseball coach Mark Johnson stressed that Hutchins should not alter his approach in getting to the big leagues. "This is a great opportunity for Jason becaut there are not many players ahead of him," Johnso: said. "Due to that, there are not many peoplel; crawl over on the ladder. "For him, being on an expansion team is aw some but he has to do the best he can by throwiii strikes." Johnson offered a piece of advice that he fed would serve Hutchins well in any situation, whetie he is on or off the field. "He has great potential but what is important,n matter where he is, is not to hold anything back. "Jason must go for it." Starting anew is never easy. Besides newsm roundings, there are new coaches, teammates, aa: attitudes towards the game of baseball. Hutchins related his experiences in Oregon toon he encountered about four years ago. "This is just like starting at Texas AM,’ Hutchins said. "You do not know how thecoacks are and they do not how you are. "Also, how the players or coaches are going tot in certain situations is only determined overt® At first, I was a little scared and tense butasti* passed I loosened up." In November, Hutchins will find out his state concerning whether he will play winter baseballs not. Until then, he is enjoying the jostling andplai fulness of a team that does not have the overridiil; pressure of competing for a spot on the major leags roster. "The locker room is loose and that makes it easii to relax and play ball. It is easier to play withouti the outside hassles. There has not been any befc the back stuff yet but it could start soon." Hutchins' has a new teammate whose nan; could be familiar to fans of the Houston Astros, foi mer University of Florida pitcher John Burke. Burke, the Rockies' first pick in the amateur drat this past June, was the Astros' first pick in thedri last summer. But due to monetary difference Burke returned to school for his senior year. Hutchins said Burke did not have many favorat! things to say about the Astros. "He just started pitching for us due to a sore am but yeah, he is constantly bad-mouthing the Astros Hutchins said with a slight laugh. "He says tk were cheap, but 1 don't know' about that." While Burke wonders about the Astros' suppose; stinginess, Hutchins confessed there is only on thing on his mind. "I want to be in the majors soon and I think I a: on the right track here." Hutchins Swimmer overcomes dark past to capture Olympic gold medal BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Most official biographies of Olympic athletes begin by listing records and accomplishments. Nelson Diebel's bio begins by not ing his car accidents and broken bones. Not every competitive swim mer occasionally wears a tatty black leather jacket and cutoff black jeans as a warmup suit. Or celebrates his swimming victories by adding another earring in his ear and an Olympic tattoo on his hip. Or cheerfully describes himself as "borderline suicidal." So now meet Nelson Diebel, the first American to win a gold medal at the Barcelona Games. The 22-year-old Diebel, de scribed in some Olympic pre views as "a former juvenile delin quent from Chicago" was a sur prise winner in the 100-meter breaststroke Sunday, beating a strong field that included world record holder Norbert Rozsa. Diebel, who was third at the 50-meter turn, stormed back to set an Olympic record of 1:01.50. "It's a great rush to have done it and gotten the gold and every thing,” Diebel said, an American ans. To say that the end result is unflattering is to be extremely kind. Richardson's new 'do consists of a shock of hair directly on top of his head, with nothing but bare skin on the sides and back. As one might expect, Richard son is less than pleased with his new coif. "I haven't adjusted to it yet," flag bandanna covering his shaved head. "I wish I could do it all over again. It's like a drug, you know. It's the best high you could ever get." Diebel knows of what he speaks. He talks openly of a drug and alcohol problem from age 12 to 16. The drug use was mostly confined to marijuana; "hard drugs scare me," he said. The alcohol: "Anything, de pending on the night." Diebel credits his mother. Marge, a stockbroker, for forcing him off his personal highway to hell. She insisted he go to prep school to get him away from the bad crowd he was running with. After he was kicked out of one school for fighting in his first se mester, his mother tried to get him into the Peddie School in Princeton, N.J. When the school expressed doubts about his poor grades and bad attitude, Diebel claimed a non-existent prowess in the swimming pool. It was that lie that saved him. The swimming coach was Chris Martin, a big man with a forceful personality who reined in his new charge. "He made me look at what I Richardson said. "I'll never adjust to it. I'll just have to wear a hat for the next month." The next few weeks will present Richardson with a more serious test of his mettle. Houston will play the Dallas Cowboys in the American Bowl in Tokyo Aug. 2, then have four straight road exhibi tions against Detroit, Dallas, New Orleans and the Los Angeles was doing to myself and realiz how foolish and what a waste! was," Diebel said. Diebel has cleaned up his act majoring in history at Princeto: Still, he has a manner thatsuf gests something else. His recoii of car accidents and his kindi! downtown strut suggest hemigt: have shaved his head evenifk never came near a pool. Diebel, his friends and his fam ily all say he's just an exdtaklt boy. His mother has been quote! as saying he was born talking an! hasn't stopped since. "I'm very hyper," Diebel saii "especially during the taper have too much energy. I havets control it." The taper is the time swimmer: refer to when they scale dowi their hours of daily practice!! prepare for a meet. The lull cai turn some into jittery wrecks, am Diebel says he is a prime example Six days after he lost in qualif) ing trials for the 1988 Olympic tri als, Diebel was working as a life guard at the Peddie pool. Hi climbed a railing and began div ing in. "It's lots of fun. It's a rush,''Ik said. Raiders. That lengthy preseas® schedule should give Richards® plenty' of chances to show why It was the most-decorated memberc* last year's Southwest Conferee champs. "I'll just continue to work and try to take advantage of every op portunity," Richardson said "There's a ladder you have ft climb here."

Norwood Continued From Page 3 reneging on a bonus clause that was agreed to in writing. To not hold out for what could turn out to be an amount between $4 and $6 million is a prime exam ple of Moon's selflessness toward his teammates and coaches, as well as his fans. Selflessness, however, is not the main reason Moon deserves to receive the buyout. That comes in the fact that few players are as important to the success of their teams as Warren Moon. Whether the so-called "experts" in the sport want to acknowledge it or not. Moon is the most talent ed quarterback in the NFL, and probably the most intelligent. How many quarterbacks in the league today could have molded their styles to the run-and-shoot the way Moon has? Very few, if any. To place the blame squarely on the shoulders of Adams is a fallacy. Adams has a pair of the deepest pockets in the NFL. He is also having to deal with the enigma that is Sean Jones for yet another year, as well as the hold out of William Fuller, both of which provide enough distrac tions for five owners. The mystery man, however, is Mike Holovak. The Oilers' gen eral manager has remained out of sight for the past fevy weeks, which might not be an accident. Over the past few years, Holo vak has cultivated a hardline per sona, squabbling with agents over seemingly trivial amounts of money. That's not always bad, though, as many agents use the wishy-washy nature of some g.m.'s to almost extort money for unproven rookies. Holovak has tried to prevent that type of situation, one that cropped up under the reign of Ladd Herzeg during the 80s. But Holovak may have taken his mission a step too far this time by slighting the one true un touchable in the eyes of the fans in the same year that marks yet another raise in ticket prices. Hopefully, the doom and gloom surrounding Moon's situ ation is indeed on the way out. Adams is one of the most amica ble owners around, and wants nothing more than to see Moon happy. And Steinberg has not become the best agent in the business by ordering his clients to hold out at the drop of a hat. But until the buyout is com pleted, don't be surprised if everyone surrounding the Oilers camp keeps walking on eggshells. Moon is in too fragile a state to be disrupted again, and is too eager to reach a resolution. And without that resolution, Moon's contractual problems may have serious consequences. "I feel great about my progress," Moon said shortly be fore leaving the Trinity campus. "I just wish that this stuff was over with."
