The turnaround business can be tricky. Do too well, too soon, and everybody wants more. Purdue Coach Joe Tiller took over a Boilermaker team that had posted only one winning season since 1984, then managed a 9-3 record and a trip to the Alamo Bowl last season in his first year at the school. Now what will he do, after losing all but four regulars from his high-scoring offense? "The people who followed us last year and enjoyed it expect things, and you just cringe," Tiller said.

He's a cross between Wilford Brimley and Grandpa Walton, crusty but lovable, wise enough to wrap his messages in humor that is most often aimed at himself. Purdue Coach Joe Tiller peppers his speech with expressions such as "dang-gum" and "tinker's dam." He chooses his practice clothes for comfort, not effect, and the wide-brimmed Panama hat he wears to ward off the sun would look comical on most other coaches. Somehow, it's perfect for Tiller. Like him, it's different, with a definite flair.

Joe Tiller said he could see it coming. Not Purdue's 28-17 upset victory over Notre Dame, but the play that sent the Boilermakers on their way. Notre Dame was within 14-10 until the fourth quarter when Purdue safety Adrian Beasley scooped up a fumble by Irish quarterback Ron Powlus and returned it 43 yards for a touchdown. It was Purdue's first fumble return for a touchdown since 1994.

Paul Roach said Wednesday that Washington State offensive coordinator Joe Tiller will succeed him as Wyoming's football coach. The Copper Bowl game against California in Tucson on Dec. 31 will be the final game for Roach, who has indicated that the strain of being coach and athletic director has been wearing on him. Roach, 63, said he would remain as athletic director. Tiller, 47, was Wyoming's offensive coordinator in 1987 and '88.

After taking Saturday off, USC turns its attention today to preparing for the opener against Purdue in the Pigskin Classic next Sunday at the Coliseum. The Boilermakers were 9-3 last year in Coach Joe Tiller's first season at the school and went to a bowl game for the first time since 1984. But most of the players responsible for a wide-open offense that averaged 33 points a game are gone--including star receiver Brian Alford, quarterback Billy Dicken and the top two running backs.

Marcel Shipp rushed for three touchdowns and 244 yards as 11th-seeded Massachusetts upset top-ranked Georgia Southern, 55-43, Saturday at Chattanooga, Tenn., for its first Division I-AA title. The victory capped an amazing turnaround for the Minutemen (12-3), who rebounded from a 2-9 record in 1997 by winning more games than any other team in school history.
