COACH: Bob Shoup, 24th year, 166-54-6 LAST SEASON: 5-4-1 record as an NAIA independent PLAYERS TO WATCH: Defense traditionally has been the strength of the Kingsmen--and 1985 will be no exception. Middle linebacker Earl Bentancourt is a converted defensive end who led the team with 19 sacks last year. Opponents ran away from his side but won't be able to now that he's in the middle. Chris Heintz, Ken Wood, Tom Gabriel and Robert Jackson are other fine linebackers.

While some college football teams like USC run the ball out of a simple I-formation, Cal Lutheran University has used several variations of the I-formation this year. The Kingsmen have, at various times, run the "I-Can't-Get-Up formation," "the I-Can't-Walk formation" and the "I-Need-Immediate-Medical-Attention formation." While some other schools, like Oklahoma, continue to run the Wishbone formation, Cal Lutheran is mastering the Brokenbone formation.

Saturday's 17-3 loss to Cal State Northridge was hard on Bob Shoup, Cal Lutheran football coach. It was hard on CLU starting quarterback Jeff Chalmers. It was hard on backup quarterback Shane Hawkins. But it was probably hardest of all for Tom Bonds. While Chalmers and Hawkins spent a long afternoon at Mt.

In the psychological whirlwind of preseason predictions, it is not unusual for coaches to tell untruths--even fib--about their team's chances. Often football coaches who know full well that their teams are going to breeze through the schedule talk about how improved the competition is and they wonder, aloud, how they are going to survive.

A dense layer of low clouds, which had enveloped this peninsular city earlier in the day, cleared Saturday just before Cal Lutheran College met Santa Clara University before a homecoming crowd of 7,339 at Buck Shaw Stadium. The fog, however, never lifted for the Kingsmen, who fell behind in the first quarter, 28-0, en route to a 51-23 loss. "We set an ominous tone early," said Cal Lutheran Coach Bob Shoup.

He's bald. He's bold. And he's beautiful to anyone who has followed football at Cal Lutheran College. He's Hank Bauer, a hard-running fullback who is best remembered as a runner who'd rather bowl down tacklers than avoid them. An All-American as a senior in 1975, Bauer, 31, still holds three school rushing records: most yards (2,659) and attempts (502) in a career, and most yards in a season (1,024).

An impatient and impotent Cal Lutheran College dropped its fourth consecutive Western Football Conference game Saturday to Sacramento State, 38-7, before a sparse crowd of 1,120 at Mt. Clef Stadium. It marked the first time in the 24 years of the school's football program that CLC (4-5 overall) has lost four straight games. A decision to go for a first down on a fourth-and-one situation at their own 48-yard line on the first Kingsmen possession set the tone for the imbroglio.

First, let's size up the situation. One of the top competitors, a 26-year-old construction worker from Alabama with Butterbean as his nom de guerre , goes 6-feet-2 and more than 300 pounds. The guy, whose real name is Eric Esch, likes to knock silly whoever jumps in the ring with him. Others, from assorted walks of life, display the same tendencies and eagerness to inflict pain.
