Spartan Players Face Bomb-Making Charges

From Times Wire Reports

Terry Love and Irving Campbell, 19-year-old freshmen receivers at Michigan State, were arrested Tuesday morning and charged with possessing a dangerous chemical compound after they allegedly planted homemade bombs that blew up outside campus apartments in East Lansing, Mich.

The men said they planted the bombs as a prank, campus police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said. No one was hurt and there was no property damage. The players were released on $500 bond after being arraigned.


Steve Spurrier wants to return to college coaching and South Carolina is interested.


The State newspaper of Columbia, S.C. reported Tuesday that a representative of the university had contacted Spurrier, 59, to see whether the former Florida coach would be interested in the Gamecock job if Lou Holtz, 67, retires after this season.

Spurrier indicated Tuesday he has no intentions of returning to the NFL, where he spent two losing seasons with Washington. Spurrier left Florida in 2002 after 12 winning seasons.

“I’ve said recently to several people that if I get back coaching, it will probably be a good college job somewhere,” Spurrier told Florida Today, a newspaper in Melbourne. “It seems like I’m better suited for that. I know I certainly had a lot more success in the college game than in the NFL. So if I return to coaching, I think that would probably be the best idea.”
