When it came down, fast and final, O.J. Ojomoh couldn't believe it. He thought he could reverse the decision, like reversing his position on the field in pursuit of a ballcarrier. But there was no changing it: Ojomoh had to sit out last season on the sidelines for failing a summer school class. Ojomoh, the emotional leader of the Cal State Northridge defense and the cover boy of the schedule card, was left without a stage to express his fiery personality and intense devotion to the game.

O.J. Ojomoh, the top returning tackler and charismatic leader of the Cal State Northridge football team, said Thursday he will miss the season because of academic ineligibility. "You don't even want to know how I feel," Ojomoh said. "Every time I think about it, it makes me feel bad. The team needed me more than ever this year." Ojomoh, a senior linebacker, will be eligible for a final season next fall if he is able to increase his credits.

Five days after Heisman Trophy contender Marshall Faulk and his San Diego State teammates began drills, their opening day opponent, Cal State Northridge, will start its own preparations. The Matadors, who will make their Division I-AA debut Sept. 4 against the Aztecs at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium, could not afford the dorm fees to open fall camp before 9 a.m. today. As it is, housing is available to only 50 of the 84 players and walk-on freshmen cannot join the team until school starts Aug.

Offensive lineman Brian Hay gave his Cal State Northridge teammates a scare Monday night after he was knocked to the ground during practice. With teammate Tony Simon's leg pinned under him and the two players lying on the ground, team trainers attended to Hay until paramedics took him by ambulance to Granada Hills Community Hospital. Because of his size--Hay is 6-foot-4, 285 pounds--X-ray technicians had difficulty getting clear pictures of Hay's neck and had to X-ray him twice.

The defense dominated Cal State Northridge's intrasquad football scrimmage Saturday, but it was difficult to determine if its success was primarily due to the offense's inability to block, run and catch the ball. In a 32-7 loss at North Campus Stadium, the offense was held to a two-yard touchdown run by tailback Robert Trice.
