indoors since the 1984 Sugar The Tigers dont feel that will be any disadvantage when they make their reappearance In the Superdome against Syracuse on We may not be completely comfortable playing Inside after only two days of practicing in the but I dont think it will put us at a Auburn tight end Walter Reeves It all boils down to concen trating and doing what you have to do to safety Greg Staples The fourthranked and unbeaten Orangemen are accustomed to the peculiarities of playing inside because they practice and play their home games at the Carrier I think well be at a slight ad vantage playing inside because we are a dome team Syracuse tailback Robert Drum mond The only difference is the dome here is a lot Auburn plays at JordanHare an outdoor Playing in the warmer climate of the Deep South gives little reason for the Tigers Southeastern Con ference foes to have enclosed so 6 Auburn doesnt get to play inside on the The Sugar Bowl is the only New Years Day game to be

finished 741 while the Falcons fell to Syracuse believes the strangeness of playing inside might surface in several It can get awful noisy when youre playing in an enclosed area like Drummond At least it does in the Carrier Dome and theres room for more people I dont think you have that kind of noise level playing out The Carrier Dome seats while the which covers two acres more and stands 110 feet taller than the Car rier has a capacity of near ly They Auburn might find it harder to hear one another or to hear audibles at the line of scrim the teams top But the Tigers summarily dismissed that I dont think the Superdome will be any running back Stacy Danley Weve played before people at home and at Were used to the noise a large crowd can We got an idea of how loud the place can get Sunday at

just has a feel for doing the right thing Here is another chance for Bucky to show his wares before a big crowd The Aggies almost redshirted who eventually started four games They told me i 1 didnt play in the first five games they were going to redshirt Richardson said 1 was trying to do eventhing I could to get some playing time The Aggies offense started slowly and the decision was made lo switch from a prostyle passing attack to a groundorienled We didnt get to work with Bucky in August because we thought we were going to redshirt Amedee Then we decided lo change our Richardson broke his long run against Southern and his speed convinced the coaches he should be in the lineup 1 think that run was what they ithe coaches were looking Richardson said It added some ex citement to our
