November 5 Miami Head Coach Larry Coker has
suspended 4 players for the game for
undisclosed violations of team policy.

The suspensions include the
team's leading Rusher from last season,
Running Back Tyrone Moss.

He still led the team after
his season was cut short by a knee
injury suffered against Virginia Tech.

Moss said he would be ready
health- wise for the season opener, but
it doesn't matter now.

Joining Moss on the sidelines
will be receivers Ryan Moore and
Rashaun Jones, along with linebacker
James Bryant.

the dedication by the Vikings in the

To go along with the lifting,
running hills has become a team bonding
activity.

The first chance to check out how
the weights, running and new look will

NASA teams will begin hooking up
fuel and power lines over the

coming days.

The space agency plans to launch

Corporate parent Time Warner has
decided in order to

attract users and advertising dollars
to the A-O-L Internet site,

it has to give away E- mail and other
services.

A-O-L will still offer its dial- up

accounts at 26 dollars a

month for unlimited access, but the
company will no longer

aggressively market it.

The changes are expected to fully
take effect early next month.

Subscribers who dropped A- O- L
within the past two years will be

able to reclaim their old E- mail
addresses.
