Behind Closed Doors
Even the multiversity has "air" problems these days.
Not the same kind that plagues our giant cities, of course, but
the multiversity's own brand of smog seems just as oppressive to my
existence as the yellow clouds that obscure the noonday sun in New
York and Los Angeles. I'm talking about the impersonal, mechanized
air that pervades the atmosphere of our modern universities, which
seem both larger than life and incompatible with it.
Unfortunately, no one has come up with air purifiers that can
solve this type of atmospheric difficulty. It just possibly could be
that with size automatically comes impersonality. This develop-
ment may be regrettable, but also unavoidable, and we might as
well accept what is. In less fatalistic moments, I think there may
be some hope for cleaning up the University's air, however. Per-
haps, with some work and creativity, we can retain the personal
elements that still exist in the academic atmosphere.
When I look at my cherished field of extracurricular involvement,
intercollegiate athletics, and find that even it has been affected by
this dirty air, I must admit that a pessimistic pressure system rolls
over my mental faculties. Is there no joy in Smogville?
There are some athletic directors and other men in the field who
are worried about the increasing estrangement of that amorphous
mass called the student body and that professional machine called
the athletic department. Most probably have never thought of this
divorcement of the average student and athletics, which is not to say
that they, the members of the athletic bureaucracy, should be account-
able for this neglect. Given the present-day pressures of winning, the
coaches have precious little time to do anything else but produce
victories and scour the boondocks for new material.
About the only way the average student becomes acquainted
with a player is a chance and rare meeting in the classroom. And
outside of Bump Elliott and Dave Strack, most people wouldn't
recognize a member of the coaching staff when passing him on
the street. Many wouldn't even recognize their names. Try to
connect Bill Dodd, Dave Martin, Bill Murphy, and Dick Honig
with their respective coaching assignments, for instance! Or Bert
Katzenmeyer, Dick Kimball, and Moby Benedict.
Why the impersonal trend in athletics has worried administrators
and observers of the collegiate scene is because they fear a significant
flagging of student interest in intercollegiate sports over the long
run. Their arguments are countered by the obvious statement that
professional sports in the United States such as basketball, baseball,
and football are totally devoid of any relationship between spectator
and athlete, outside of the typical spectator-athlete roles at a sporting
And everyone knows how attendance is on the way up in the pro
circuits. The analogy is weak in one respect, however. The pros have
excellence on their side. By exhibiting that quality consistently, the
professional leagues have an added attraction and advantage over the
college brand of ball. The difference in ability is demonstrated year
in and year out by football's college All-Star game, which has become
an annual July farce.
The inexorable march of progress in intercollegiate athletics
has almost obliterated the contrast between professional and
amateur sports, though. All except for the difference in playing
ability, that is.
To my mind, the impersonalization of the collegiate sports scene
Is the single most damaging development in the area today. Com-
pounding the problem is the tragic lack of recognition that this trend
is dangerous at all. And once upon a time, or so I'm told, universities
maintained athletic programs chiefly for the students' benefit.
Granted, there's no turning back the clock. The days of the walk-
on athlete are buried with the likes of Knute Rockne and Fielding
H. Yost. Yet, the level of play has almost certainly risen in iter-
4 collegiate circles, no matter what else can be said.
In the end, I must admit that I hold doubts about whether there
has been a corresponding increase in the student body's enjoyment of
THEIR intercollegiate program. The question is how to bring the
average student back into the athletic scene. Does a university's athle-
tic program have anything to offer the non-athlete besides enter-
t Yes! A plethora of coaching expertise in many sports. And it
could be exploited by a simple and relatively inexpensive program
that would bring the student back to intercollegiate athletics and
intercollegiate athletics back to the student.
As mentioned earlier, the coaches have little time available for
teaching duties, and when they do, their talents are directed mainly
to physical education majors. It would seemingly be possible, though,
for the varsity coaches and their staff to sponsor annual clinics in
their respective sports which would be open to all students. The
coaches might also include some of their athletes in the program.
The number of frustrated high school athletes on this campus
who didn't possess the ability for the big-time, but still pursue their
chosen sport, is certainly large. Add to this group the other partici-
pants of the intramural program, a service which involves more stu-
dents than any other on this campus. Take those sedentary spectators,
who might not take an active part in athletics, but would jump at the
opportunity to meet the head football coach, and ask him questions.
The combination of these varying segments would make up a signifi-
cant proportion of the student body on this campus.
The clinic could consist of many phses. A question-and-
answer session could be conducted by the head coach, replying to
general queries about both his own team and the nature of his
sport on the collegiate level. He might pick out one segment of a
sport, such as putting in golf, and give pointers to those attending.
If his players also took part, they could fill the part of instructors
with regard to individual problems.
In team sports, coaches could provide some basic plays for the
group which would be of special interest to athletic managers of
+ dormitories and fraternities. And the sports fan who hasn't heard
Michigan offensive line coach Tony Mason speak on athletic motiva-
tion has an experience in store for him.
The proposal would take some time, effort, and money to im-
plement. If intercollegiate athletics is really to benefit the student
body in the multiversity, the coaching clinics would seem to be well
worth this "trouble." On the practical side, revived student interest
in their sports program would likely be a valuable product of the new
rapport between the athletic department and student body.
I don't know about you, but I can smell that fresh air already.

the remainder of regulation time.
Only a standout performance by
the sophomore netminder, who
played in his first starting role,
kept the Wolverines from winning
in regulation time.

prolonged intermission to take a

TheSpartans, however, took ad-
vantage of two Wolverine penalties
and forced the game into overtime
when Nino Cristopholie flipped
the puck into the net over three
sprawled Michigan defenders for
his second goal of the night.
All evening long the Spartan
line of Christopholie, Robert Fal-
lat, and Charles Phillip forced the
play to the Wolverines.
Michigan State went flying at
the opening faceoff as Fallat
sent a pass to Phillips, who was
standing alone in front of the
net, and whipped it past Keough
with only 18 seconds played.
The Spartans kept the pressure
on and forced the play into the
Michigan zone continually during
the first period.
The Spartans kept the pressure
on throughout the first half of
the second period. At 11:35, how-
ever, a minor brawl broke out
which sent three Wolverines and
three Spartans to the penalty box.
It was then that the scoreboard
and clock broke down and caused
the 40-minute delay.
