Second-guessing alumni sitting in the stands cause enough grief for college football coaches. So consider the plight of Ohio State Coach Earle Bruce as he readies his team for its Jan. 1 Cotton Bowl game against Texas A&M. For the first time anyone can remember, an alumnus will quarterback the Buckeyes against the Aggies. Jim Karsatos secured his degree in communications at graduation ceremonies recently. "Isn't that great?" said Bruce, referring not to Karsatos' new status, but to his degree.

Jim Karsatos really wanted to play quarterback for USC. As a football and basketball star at Sunny Hills High, even before that, as a sports-crazy kid growing up in Fullerton, Karsatos knew what he wanted: To be the quarterback at USC. So 20 years ago, when Karsatos was being recruited, being wooed by USC and Ohio State, what the heck happened? Why is it that Karsatos has returned this week, visiting family, playing golf with old high school buddies, but only as an Orange County guest?

Only Jim Karsatos' long-time Orange County friends can detect the slight Midwestern accent that the former Sunny Hills High School quarterback says he has acquired since attending Ohio State University the last 3 1/2 years. But if that's not enough to convince you that Karsatos has adapted to the Midwest, note that his hobbies now include duck hunting on Lake Erie and fishing. He also likes country and western music and the Southern folk rock sounds of Jimmy Buffett.

No. 19-ranked Michigan, behind the passing and running of Jim Harbaugh, continued to rebound from its embarrassing 1984 season with its second straight victory over a Top 20 opponent, defeating No. 15 South Carolina, 34-3, Saturday at Columbia, S.C. Michigan is 2-0 in the wake of last season's 6-6 record, while South Carolina is 2-1. Harbaugh finished with 12 completions in 22 attempts for 164 yards. Meanwhile, Michigan's defense tamed the nation's No. 3-ranked offense.

A bunch of Ohio State crazies had just put the finishing touches on the goal post they had ripped from its socket after their beloved Buckeyes had knocked the No. 1 out of Iowa in a nationally televised game at horseshoe-shaped Ohio Stadium, or as it came to be known on this day, the really big shoe. Man, as Buckeye quarterback Jim Karsatos said, this is what it's all about. Lights, cameras, scouts, cheerleaders--just like they promised in the brochure.

Capistrano Valley High School quarterback Scott Stark became Orange County's all-time single-season passing leader Friday night while leading the third-ranked Cougars to a 38-0 win over visiting El Camino Real in a nonleague game. Stark completed 11 of 15 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns in a little more than two quarters. His 10-game total of 2,706 yards is three greater than current Ohio State quarterback Jim Karsatos' total in 13 games for Sunny Hills in 1980.

Ohio State quarterback Jim Karsatos is confident that he will be able to end the Buckeyes' six-year streak of 9-3 finishes. "Don't mention those 9-3 seasons," the former Sunny Hills High School star said. "We are going to try to do it all this year. I want to be going home for the holiday and play in the Rose Bowl." Ohio State fans are expecting big things from Karsatos, a 6-foot 3-inch, 224-pound senior from Fullerton.
