Not after what Pasqualoni did to them.

The Lady Big Indians tripped Shepherd by game scores of 30- 22, 30-14, and 30-15. In the Lady Rams' final of four matches in the tournament, St. Xrmcent defeated Shepherd, 3-1, by winning the last three games. St. Xrmcent's winmug game scores were 26-30, 30-26, 30-16, and 30-18. Robinson has the reputation of being a blood and guts foot- ball man. Not many deep pass- es. No trickery, double reverses or flea flickers, you know. Robinson believes football excitement comes from line- backers drilling ball carriers on sweeps. And then drilling op- posing quarterbacks on blitzes. Definitely not the sort of coach to give your heart un- knowingly to if you are the $1,000 a decanter of wine type or know how to sniff the cork for just the right aroma on such a bottle. Coach Rob and his boys will greet Coach Rod and his boys. West Virginia might be just as unknown and puzzling to Syracuse as Coach Rob is going to be to the Mountaineer staff. WVU's Rodriguez might try to play at a pace the NFL only sees in the last two minutes of each half. And Syracuse's Robin- son might throw every blitz seen from Buddy Ryan to Bill Belichick at WVU's raw quar- terbacks. The wine-and-cheese-and- stock-portfolio gentry live a civilized and orderly existence. Blitzes and chaos are not a part of their lives. Leaving the outcome of a col- lege football game to the de- fense isn't what they came to see. Pasqualoni was dull enough. And he couldn't win enough. If Robinson can't bring a little more offensive zest to the Carrier Dome, we won't throw in with him just yet. Coaches alphor the unknown like nature abhors a vacuum. And neither of these coach- es is certain what the other is going to do. Rodriguez en- ters his fifth season. Robinson might reveal a few of his coach- ing tendencies if you watch the right film of his NFL defenses. Neither coach is likely to out- fox the other. They will stick to the first-game fundamentals. Let the opponent beat himself with mistakes. Let him make the crucial penalty. Vanilla pudding. Not cheese from the Bordeaux Valley. Not win from the interior of some monastery in France. Defense from Syracuse. Ja- son Colson, Pernell Williams, Jason Gwaltney from West Vir- ginia. Both sides will be wanting to see a close game in the fourth quarter. Let the defenses decide the outcome. Don't beat yourself. WVU has the right ammuni- tion -- Rodriguez 5elieves -- in Anthony Mires, Mike Lorello, Jahmile Addae, Antonio Lewis, "Boo" McLee, and Ernest Hunt- er -- all defenders. Robinson believes his de- fense, never seen in live action by WVU, is enough to give him a career-opening victory. Just like Rodriguez, Robin- son had to choose among two competing quarterbacks. Just like Rodriguez, the people from Syracuse will not want to open wide their arms and look at a quarterback and say: "Take us there, new man, take us there!" Both sides expect a close game. A win by either won't "make" their season. A loss by either won't "break" their season. Syracuse believes it has' enough to win -- the home field, a fiery defense, and the enthu- siasm brought by a new coach- ing regime. West Virginia believes it has enough to win -- a quick and experienced defensive second- ary, savvy at linebacker, and a horde of running backs to wear down the Orange defenders. Those in the sections of Syra- cuse season ticket holders will be properly reserved and dis- cussing things other than col- lege footbalI if they are still there in the fourth quarter. ,i The football is deliveredby a parachutist at Jefferson's opener.
