BIG TEN CHAMPS:
Colorado, Playoffs Next for Puckmen

Indiana Flavored in Big

Ten Swim

w

By DAVE WEIR
Sports Editor.
It happens every spring.
Whenever the end of the sea-
son rolls around, coaches begin
getting philosophical.
Yesterday, it was hockey men-
tor Al Renfrew's turn to reflect on
the past four months of puck ac-
tion:
"Basically, we won some and we
lost some. When we were winning,
we took advantage of the breaks
.. but when we let up once or
twice, it really cost us . .."
He was referring to the current
four-game losing streak which
(1) superceded a ten-game win-
ning splurge, and (2) shattered
all Wolverine hopes of a WCHA
championship.
Wear One Crown
Michigan is, however, the Big
Ten hockey champion for 1967-68.
Michigan State finished in sec-j
ond place, and Minnesota brought
'up the rear in the final standings.
"This is no longer a mythical
title, but is officially recognized
as a legitimate crown by the Big
Ten," Renfrew pointed out.
Nevertheless, there is still one
two-game series in the WCHA re-

maining, (at home this weekend
against Colorado College) and the
added attraction of a berth in the
league playoffs a week from to-
night.
"The chances for a fourth place
finish, and therefore a good play-
off berth, are pretty slim," claims
Renfrew. "We need a sweep of the
two games against Colorado this
weekend, while Minnesota must
drop both games with Michigan
Tech at Houghton.
Home Ice at Stake
"Otherwise we'll end up in fifth
place, and will not have the ad-
vantage of home ice for any of
the tournament action."

During a recent Michigan basketball game, several angry parti-
sans spewed out a stream of obscenities at a pair of conscientious
referees trying to do their job.
From my seat in the press row, I picked up the words quite
clearly. So did the microphone from the out-of-state radio station
whose announcer was seated next to me.
After the game was over, the announcer turned and said, "That
crowd was really bad tonight. I never expected this at Michigan."
Several weeks later, a Daily front-page story revealed the practice
of local merchants giving discounts to athletes in the 'M' Club. This
practice is illegal under Big Ten rules for athletes on scholarships.
The reaction to the story was immediate and definitive.
The Establishment was upset. You could tell so from its
Voices.
One of these Voices, TV announcer Van Patrick in Detroit,
libeled, slandered . and otherwise categorically castigated the
reporters who bylined the article. All this on his 6:00 show.
Five hours later, he derived great pleasure in announcing the
nearly-tragic brick-throwing incidents which left gaping holes in
several Daily windows.
This sterling performance shattered my boyhood image of a jolly,
human Van Patrick; and left in its place an ugly, McLuhanistic
conglomeration of misshaped dots.
Two weeks later, a local merchant refused The Daily service
because of the discount stories.
And, all the while, the recruiting process went on.
Mr. Anyalum in Anytown, USA, was promising young Mr. Any-
jock something. And the bets were that that something was illegal.
Why, then, did it keep happening?
Just where on the scale of societal importance do sports
rank?
Personally, the cries -of "kill the ref" and "lynch the re-
porters" frighten me. And not just because I'm a reporter.
There's a much more fundamental question involved, and it
concerns the significance of winning and losing "games." I, for
one, don't know the answer.
The fact is, however, that the recruiting game goes on. The fact
is, also, that the double standard of drawing up, and then ignoring
meaningless rules and regulations goes on.
Nobody in college athletics is willing to face up to the question
of professionalism, even when it smacks them right in the face.
Coaches retire, newspapers sensationalize, investigators investigate,
committees punish; but nobody ever admits the obvious fact: college
sports has already become Big Business, and that college athletes
are rapidly becoming paid performers.
Until these facts of today's athletic scene are publicly admitted
and recognized, the present outworn system of cover-up rules and
rationalizations will reinforce a dishonest and illegitimate situation.
