the Olympic committees were there to watch the What the fans and officials saw was a dominating per formance by the Australians who won the womens mens and junior womens races Our team didnt do very Reed said We brought an elite team and they didnt win anything The age groups that did the best were 45 on Reed was able to stay in Australia after the race and go on a safari thanks to No Limits which sponsored her trip by paying for the air plane tickets No Limits is a Texasbased sportswear company and Reed became the first senior athlete to be sponsored for such an event Power Bur another of Reeds sponsors also helped finance the trip I enjoyed getting to know people from all over the world but I also got to see some of my German friends said Reed who was born and raised in Germany Ive

stated star tailback Lawrence Phillips to the team even after Phillips plead ed no contest to charges of assaulting a former girlfriend Osbornes decision follows the recent retirements of two of the most prominent coaches in college sports Eddie Robinson of Division IAA Grambling the winningest coach in college football and Dean Smith of North Carolina the winningest coach in college basketball With 15hour days routine for many coaches Osborne said it was time to slow down What Ive come to realize over the last three months is that Im not going to sustain that pace for any length of he said He had heart bypass surgery 13 years ago and was hospitalized with an irregular heartbeat last month He was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation which can produce varied and irregu lar heartbeats and Osborne said patients are sometimes at risk for strokes Osborne predicted the Huskers would change little under Solich an 18year assistant who has for years worked closely with Osborne in designing Nebraskas offense I dont know how you replace Tom Osborne as much as you follow Solich told about 300 people at the crowded news conference In his 25 years nobody has equaled Osfaorne has a 254493 record and hopes to finish with win No 255 He said he didnt think his decision would affect the resolve of the Cornhuskers 120 to beat Tennessee 111 in the Orange Bowl Nonetheless he said he hasnt even about V slate right said He also said he would try to talk with some of the players he has been recruiting to encourage them to attend Nebraska Osborne retires as the sixth win ningest coach in NCAA Division IA history behind Bear Bryant Pop Warner Amos Alonzo Stagg Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden Im surprised and saddened and I just hate said Bowden coach at Florida State Tom Osborne is one of
