Notre Dame football players closed ranks behind their boss Wednesday, defending Coach Lou Holtz--and themselves--from published charges that Holtz tolerated widespread steroid abuse. "I know the guys on this team don't use steroids, and that's all there is to it," co-captain Todd Lyght said. Chris Zorich, a senior nose tackle who bench-presses 500 pounds, said former Notre Dame player Steve Huffman has a "chip on his shoulder."

The publisher of Sports Illustrated says the magazine isn't singling out Notre Dame football for criticism. In the current issue, a former Notre Dame linebacker claims that steroid abuse was widespread and that two assistant coaches even recommended the muscle-building drug. Last season, a Sports Illustrated story held Notre Dame responsible for a pre-game brawl at South Bend between Irish and Southern Cal players. Publisher Donald J. Barr, a Notre Dame alumnus, denies picking on the Irish.

REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS' internecine battles over immigration policy have already prevented them from acting on one of President Bush's top second-term priorities: comprehensive immigration reform. Now the GOP border split is threatening to cost Republicans at least one seat in the House of Representatives.
Notre Dame said today five football players have tested positive for steroid use in the past three years, but Coach Lou Holtz denied published allegations by a former player that steroid use was widespread and that he must have known about it. "I totally deny unequivocally everything that was written," Holtz said at a news conference. He also denied allegations in a Sports Illustrated story written by former Irish lineman Steve Huffman that two assistant coaches suggested players use steroids.
The revelation that five Notre Dame football players tested positive for steroid use was no revelation at all. In fact, the allegation by former Notre Dame lineman Steve Huffman that half of the Irish lettermen took steroids isn't even the most serious charge contained in the first-person story he co-authored for this week's Sports Illustrated. Steroid use at America's University? The school under the personal watch of Touchdown Jesus? Of course.

Ram kicker Mike Lansford spoke at the Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club's 16th annual Rally with the Rams, held Friday at the Bonaventure Hotel. Lansford discussed Coach John Robinson's confidence in him: "Against the (San Francisco) 49ers last year, we were on the one-yard line. I was lined up to kick and then I was told Coach Robinson had called for a fake. "I was stunned. He's so conservative, he doesn't even run fake field goals in practice.

Best deal Fred Claire never made was the one that would have sent Kirk Gibson to Oakland or Detroit for a fifth starter. Gibson has been a major contributor to the Dodgers' resurgence, and Jim Neidlinger wouldn't have gotten a chance to pitch if the trade had been made. . . . Dodger fans, take heart: On Aug. 24, 1964, the St. Louis Cardinals were 11 games out of first place. They won the National League pennant and the World Series. . . .
