Ask Arizona offensive lineman Joe Smigiel how his college football career is going, and he might say he's been blindsided, leg-whipped, chop-blocked, clotheslined and just plain knocked on his rear countless times. But he also might say he's doing fine. Which is the answer one would expect from a 6-foot-5, 275-pound starting tackle who will be spending New Year's Day tangling with Miami defensive ends in the Fiesta Bowl.

In the wake of Cal State Long Beach's decision Tuesday to drop football, Northridge Coach Bob Burt said he will attempt to recruit former 49er players. Because Long Beach no longer has a program, any transfers would become eligible immediately upon enrolling at CSUN. "We'll be interested in some of their athletes and hopefully they'll be interested in us," said Burt, whose team lost to Long Beach, 25-24, in 1990.

Since his last game at Newbury Park High in 1989, football has not been kind to offensive lineman Joe Smigiel. First, he felt he was betrayed by Arizona State. Then, George Allen, the man who recruited him to Cal State Long Beach, passed away. A few months later, Smigiel (SMY-gull) tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, forcing him to miss the 1991 season. Finally, the rug was pulled from under him Tuesday when Long Beach dropped its football program.
