Linksters look for a few
By MEGAN CULHANE
Collegian Sports Writer
Fall is around the corner, and the
men's golf team is teeing up to try to
do amazing things with that dimpled
Head Coach Mary Kennedy said the
fall season, which begins the weekend
of Sept. 12, is the team's best because
of the consistent play the summer
provides. Team members will put
their summer practice to work as
they vie for spots this fall.
Returning golfers as well as new
recruits and anyone interested in
playing for this year's team are in
vited to three days of open qualifying
play. The qualifier consists of two 18-
hole rounds at Penn State's Blue and
White golf courses. Rounds are cur
rently in progress and will continue
through Aug. 29.
Kennedy expects to take the top 10
percent of the golfers after 36 holes.
Those players will move to final qual
ifying rounds consisting of 90 holes of
play on the Blue Course. Play for the
final qualifier will be from Aug. 30
thru Sept. 9.
CALDER SQUARE 11, STATE COLLEGE 237-671
The team will consist of the twelve
lowest scorers, and the top five will
compose the traveling team.
Kennedy has faith in this qualifying
process of elimination. Not only does
it force returning team members to
perform for their spots on the team,
but it encourages new talent that will
give the team depth.
Kennedy expects a few suprises
from the qualifier. She notes that in
the past the method has produced
some talent that might never have
"You never know what might pop
out of the woodwoork," Kennedy
said. "The only way to find out is with
an open qualifier. I think it's a fair
system and that's why I am taking
..only 10 percent. It's not a rule, but
every year I do."
Freshman Brian Brener is but one
of the recruited hopefuls for this
year's team. The native of South
Africa is attempting to place in that
10 percent who will constitute the
"I have to adjust to things (green
conditions) up here," the freshman
said. "In the qualifier I'm just trying
to make the team. It's hard to find a
feel for things, especially as a fresh
Like many coaches Kennedy's ulti
mate goal is the Nationals, but she
remains optimistic about the season.
She has increased the team's fall
tournament schedule to include the
East Coast Athletic Conference Qual
ifer and Championship. Making this
alteration in the fall schedule will
allow for cutbacks in the spring.
Kennedy hopes to produce a leader
through the qualifiers and throughout
the season ; Brener shares Kennedy's
"When going into a tournament it is
good to have a leader to be sure he
will shoot low scores," he said. The
freshman explained that out of the
five traveling team members, the two
low scorers are usually looked to for
moral support and leadership.
In the past, the team showed no
player who has consistently shot low
scores. Kennedy said that the emer
gence of such a player would spur on
team members, encourage their
mental game, and give them a sense
of direction and confidence.

Few stars get NFL's axe
By The Associated Press
Quarterback Paul McDonald, safety Dennis Thurman
and Jim Arnold, a league-leading punter just two years
ago, were cut by their NFL teams yesterday as was Bruce
Mathison, Buffalo's starting quarterback until Jim Kelly
But it was another victim of the axe, safety Mike
Kozlowski, who best expressed the feelings of fringe
players at this time of the year.
"There's a country song with the title 'My Best Friend
Just Ran Off With My Wife, And I Miss Him,' " he said
after he was cut by the Miami Dolphins. "That's kind of
how I feel right now. My wife is football and my best
friends, or most of them, are still here."
There were a lot of Kozlowskis yesterday as NFL teams
got down from 60 players to 50, a week away from getting
down to the final limit of 45 for the regular season.
The best known was the 30-year-old Thurman, a 10-year
veteran with the Dallas Cowboys who was the ringleader
of the group known as "Thurman's Thieves." But in
recent years, he had been reduced to playing as a nickel
back and had to give way to younger legs.
The Cowboys also dropped two other veterans, offen
sive lineman Chris Schultz and tight end Fred Cornwell as
well as two former USFL players, tight end Jeff Spek and
wide receiver Perry Kemp.
Mathison, a reserve during his college career at Ne
braska, spent two years at San Diego, then last year at
Buffalo, where he started seven games, completing 113 of
228 passes for 1,635 yards and four touchdowns. He also
threw 14 interceptions, however, and when Kelly was
signed when the USFL suspended play, it was apparent he
had lost his starting job.
McDonald, a one-time starter with the Cleveland
Browns and a former Southern California star was cut by
the Seattle Seahawks along with two othei former NFL
starters, cornerback Terry Jackson and fullback David
Hughes. Hughes was a starter with the Seahawks, while
Jackson had his best years with the New York Giants.
Arnold, who averaged 44.9 yards a kick to lead the NFL
in 1984 but slipped to 41.2 last year, was cut by the Kansas
City Chiefs, who will go with rookie Louis Colbert. The

Chiefs also dropped offensive lineman Bob Olderman and
fullback Bruce King. who began last year as starters..
Kozlowski, who had started just seven games in three
years with the Dolphins. was primarily a nickel hack and
His best performance came in a 1983 game when he
intercepted two passes by the New York Jets' Richard
Todd and returned them 35 and 38 yards for touchdowns.
Todd, ironically, was cut Monday by the New Orleans
Among the others cut yesterday were quarterback
Scott Brunner and wide receiver Earnest Gray, a former
playoff passing combination with the Giants. They were
let go by the St. Louis Cardinals. who also released one
time starting linebacker Thomas Howard and veteran
defensive back Jeff Griffin.
A former Cardinal, 10-year linebacker Kurt Alterman,
was cut by the Detroit Lions and the Denver Broncos
waived a future trivia question running back Tony
Boddie. Boddie, a former member of the USFL's Los
Angeles Express, outgained Herschel Walker in that
league's first nationally televised game with 77 yards in
13 carries to Walker's 16 for 65.
The Philadelphia Eagles cut guard Steve Kenney, a
starter since 1981 and placed offensive lineman Kevin
Allen, last year's top draft pick, on the reserve-non
football injury list.
Allen had periodically. suffered from dehydration and
cramps, once slept through practice and had been de
moted to fourth string by Coach Buddy Ryan. Kenney,
also a non-favorite of Ryan, complained he had never had
a chance in training camp.
"He took the bat out of my hand. I never got up to the
plate, I don't think," Kenney said of the coach. "Ile thinks.
other guys are better than me, and I don't.".
Minnesota cut defensive back John Turner, a nine-year
veteran and Pittsburgh cut a five-year man, linebacker
The Giants cut veteran placekicker Bob Thomas, who
was picked up last week and kicked two field goals in last
week's win over the New York Jets. The Giants said their
regular kicker, Ali Ilaji-Sheikh, had recovered from a
pulled groin muscle.
