A Miles stone

Well..I was wrong when I said Miles Austin would make the Dallas Cowboys practice squad. He didn't make the practice squad. HE MADE THE TEAM. Austin, MU's all-time leading receiver in numerous categories told Press staff writer Steve Edleson, that Bill Parcells told him, ""Tell the folks back home you're a Dallas Cowboy.'' Austin becomes the first football player in MU's now 14 seasons to make a 53-man NFL squad. Steve will have the complete story in Sunday's Press and I'll get some reaction from MU coach Kevin Callahan after tonight's game.

Oh yes, the game. The conditions are as ridiculous as is the fact this game at Fordham is goign to be played. Driving wind, rain. MU didn't get here til about one hour before kick off. There's about 100..maybe 150 fans here.

Another suspension

This time it's senior team captain Walter Carter, a running back, for five games for "violation of team rules' according to the MU sports info department. Senior punter Sean Dennis is serving game one of his two gamer tonight.
