When Shannon Smiley was a high

So last year when Smiley, a sena-

and her running mates used the idea
as part of their platform.

Curry still looking for perfect game

Staff Writer


When UK takes on Vanderbilt
Saturday, the Cats will have a
chance to put together a complete
game —- which UK coach Bill Curry
has been set on achieving since the
beginning of the season.

“We're coming out aggressive and
shooting for our first complete per-
formance of the year," Curry said.
“We've got a chance to be a really
good football team and we have not
hit on all cylinders. We have not
had a game where all three groups
(offense, defense, special teams)
went out and just put it together."

Of UK’s three remaining games,
Saturday's matchup will be the best
opportunity for the Cats to put Cur-
ry’s dream game together.

Considering that Vanderbilt stan—
ed the season as one of the worst de-
fenses in the nation, especially
against the run, (allowing 278.7
yards per game), look for a big run-
ning game from tailback Al Baker.
Baker is going for his third straight
lOO-yard game.

A potent running game will open
up the passing lanes for quanerback
Freddie Maggard, who will be mak-
ing his first start since the Nonh
Carolina game on Sept. 22.

Last week‘s 0an date allowed
Maggard time to get his arm rested
and ready. Maggard is still healing
from a shoulder injury he suffered in
that game.

“Freddie just gets better all the
time. Of course, he‘s been doing that







About the Game

since March," Curry said. “Fred-
die’s picking up the offense now.”

The Commodores defense was so
bad earlier in the year that they
trailed Alabama 52-0 at halftime be-
fore finally falling 59-24. They also
lost 44-7 to lowly Southern Metho-
dist University, 56—6 to Auburn, and
49—14 to Syracuse University.
Along the way, Vandy accrued an
average of 481.7 yards and 40.3
points per game.

Last week, however, Vandy's de-
fense allowed only 14 points to a
strong Ole Miss team. That perfor-
mance was due, mainly to the fact
that Vandy coach Watson Brown
went back to last year’s defensive
scheme — the original George Per~
lis Pittsburgh defense.

“When you watch the Ole Miss
film, it’s hard to believe that’s the
same defense that played against
some of the other teams,“ Curry

The Cats‘ defense also will be
tested against the second-ranked of-
fense in the Southeastern Confer-
ence, which averages 343.4 yards a

“We want the defense to come out

backs, sophomores Marcus Wilson

game. Curry said that Wilson

quarterbacks to come out there and
give us a good picture of the wish-
bone,” Curry said.

“Both of them are fearless. Both
of them are quick so they’ve been
giving our defense fits. I think our
defense will be glad not to see our
scout team anymore. We’ve never
had a scout team that talented.”

Considering that the margin of
victory in the UK-Vandy series has
averaged only 4.8 points in the last
five meetings, Curry is looking for a
war on the field.

“If history is any guideline, then
this will be a tough, hard-fought

we‘re expecting,” Curry said.

Santa comes early
for bowl scouts

Associated Press

The college football bowls, which
traditionally fill their holiday stock-
ings well in advance of the official
NCAA deadline, have done their
1990 Christmas shopping earlier
than usual.

More than two weeks before the
Nov. 24 invitation date, most of the
bowls apparently have their teams
signed, sealed and all but delivered
— pending the outcome of some key
remaining games.

“It's the earliest it‘s ever been
done," said Jim Brock, executive
vice president of the Cotton Bowl.

“I’m a little disappointed that peo»
ple are panicking and I‘m really dis—
appointed that peoplc are calling
press conferences."

Brock apparently was referring to
the John Hancock Bowl‘s disclosure
earlier this week that it had lined up
Southern Califomia and Michigan

“You snooze, you lose," was the
retort from a Hancock Bowl official.

The current scenario has No. I No—
tre Dame bound for the Orange
Bowl if it beats No. 9 Tennessee on
Saturday, even with games left
against Penn State and Southern Cal.
Fourth-ranked Colorado, the Big
Eight leattr, is the likely Orange
Bowl host team with only Oklahoma
State and Kansas State left on the
regular-season schedule.

If Notrc Dame wins on Saturday.
No. 5 Miami seems headed for the
Cotton Bowl. If the Irish lose to Ten-
nessee, the order could be reversed,
with Miami in the Orange and Notre
Dame in the Cotton.

Second-ranked Washington has
clinched a spot in the Rose Bowl,
probably against No. 6 lowa, the Big
Ten leader.

The Citms Bowl's dream of a na‘
tiortal championship game died
when Virginia, last week’s No. 1
team, lost to Georgia Tech in a 41»

It's difficult to create the classic
I love story. Boy meets girl, boy gets
igirl. boy loses girl, boy gets girl
' back.

But Universal Pictures tries with
its new release “White Palace."

In this film the viewer meets two
people — and for a refreshing
change they’re from opposite sides
of the tracks. Blue collar girl, white
collar boy. He’s a Volvo-driving,
Chablis-drinking, tuxedo-wearing
perfectionist. She takes the bus,
slams vodka tonics, wears a polyes-
ter fast food restaurant uniform.
and is a real slob.

An unlikely couple, yes, but they
are drawn towards each other and a
beautiful romance results.

The story takes place in present-
day St. Louis. Max, played by
James Spader is a young, 27-year-

old Jewish advertising executive on
the rise. He has an elegant town
house and eats brunch and drinks
cocktails with his yuppie friends.

Susan Sarandon plays Nora, a 43-
year-old waitress who sells hambur‘
gers at the local fast food joint
White Palace. She lives alone and
spends her spare time watching tel-

Once these two meet, they each
realize that the other fills a void in
each other's life. The relationship
builds on mutual need, reciprocal
desire and great sex.

However, the element that makes
this particular love story work is the
excellent acting.

Sarandon has come a long way
since playing Janet in “Rocky Hor-
ror Picture Show" and has found
her niche playing the mature, self-
confident, sensuous woman. From
“The Witches of Eastwick" to “Bull
Durham" and now “White Palace.“

Sarandon is more than convincing.
She is vulnerable and mysterious as
well as sexy.

Spader is Max Baron. Known for
his rich boy roles, Spader assures
us of a flawless performance. He is
the king of introvened looks and
steely glances. Unlike his part in
“Less Than Zero," as the cold self-
ish user; and in “Sex, Lies and Vid-
eotape,” playing an introverted vid-
e0 voyeur, Sparder pulls it off as
the tender romantic. His young
pretty-boy looks are the perfect
compliment to Nora‘s weathered

The entire movie contributes
many fine performances including
some wonderful supporting roles.
The combination of Sarandon and
Spader is believable, and it works.
If you could believe “Pretty Wom-
an,” “White Palace” is certainly a
worthwhile contender.

‘Trip To Bountiful’ride is
smooth sailing for theater

Staff Critic

Actor’s Theatre of Louisville has
mounted a fine production of Hor-
ton Foote's “The Trip to Bounti-
ful.” My memory of the film ver-
sion of several years ago is strong,
and comparisons between the two
are inevitable. But Horton’s quiet,
intimate story seems more suited to
the theater, and its sensitive han-
dling here has displaced my memo-
ry of the film.

The story is slight In Houston in
the early 1950s. an elderly woman
with a heart condition, Carrie
Watts, lives in a two-room apart-
ment with her middle—aged son, Lu-
die, and his complacent, discontent-
ed wife, Jessie Mae. It is Carrie’s
fervent wish to return before she
dies to her girlhood home, the Gulf
coast town of Bountiful.

Ludie and Jessie Mae regard this
as frivolous and, for Carrie, poten-
tially dangerous and so for years
have kept a close watch to prevent
her from escaping. But one day she
eludes them, boards a bus in the di-
rection of Bountiful, and fulfills her

wife she meets along the way; her
pleas to the sheriff who, at Ludie’s
request, intercepts her just before
she gets to Bountiful. There is re-
markably little action in the play.
Instead, we see the interaction that
takes place between events.

The success of such a play de-
pends on thoughtful acting and di-
rection, on the accumulation of tell-
ing detail that yields insight into the
characters and their experience. In
the production, Horton‘s play re-
ceives these in abundance.

Ray Fry has directed with clarity
and precision. Nothing here is su-
perfluous, nothing is arbitrary. The
actors — among them. Adale
O’Brien as Carrie, William McNul-
ty as Ludie, Pamela Stewart as the
soldier’s wife, and Peggity Price as
Jessie Mae — are well cast and per-
form with intelligence and restraint.

The relationship between Carrie
and Jessie Mae, in particular, is
much more satisfactory here than in
the film, which made Jessie Mae
into a harping shrew and was fatal-
ly weighted in Carrie‘s favor. Here,
the relationship is more objective,
more carefully modulated, and
more pleasingly ambiguous. And

Rampino's costumes and Paul

All are pleasing to the eye, evoca-

Again, everything is concise, well

Owen’s set is particularly effec-

in the Watts' apartment. at a bus sta-
tion in Houston, on a bus on the
highway, and at a bus station just
outside of Bountiful —~ the settings
are simple and economical and are
placed in front of the theater's cur-
tain. But in the final act, the curtain
pulls back and the lights come up on
a huge, fully realized outdoor scene.
Carrie stands in front of a dilapidat-
ed Victorian house, a cluster of trees
with a blanket of Spanish moss
hanging from them. and a slowly
brightening morning sky.

All of this — beautifully rendered
by Owen and his crew —functions
as a visual analogue to the action, a
highly theatrical effect which neatly
