It's Time For a Change

IOWA CITY, Iowa - Iowa
stormed from 13 points behind in
the last half and used Ron Nor-
man's basket with three seconds
left to nip Ohio State 74-72 in
overtime of a Big Ten basketball
game here yesterday.
The Hawkeyes, down 40-29 at
halftime, used a tenacious press
to take a 64-62 lead in the closing
seconds of regulation play.
But Ohio State's Denny Mea-
dors was fouled just before the
buzzer sounded, then hit a pair
of free throws to send the game
into the extra session.
Iowa built a 72-68 lead in the
overtime, but Jim Geddes swiped
the ball from the Hawks twice
in a few seconds span, scoring
once himself and feeding to Bill
Hosket for the other basket, to
tie it 72-72 with 54 seconds to go.
However, a few secondshlater
Hosket missed two free throws,
and with 24 seconds to go, Iowa

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Trail-
ing throughout most of the game,
Northwestern's Wildcats overtook
Indiana in the final 2% minutes
last night to score its second
straight Big Ten victory 86-81.
The victory gave the Wildcats
a 2-0 conference record and left
them 8-4 overall. Indiana is 2-1
in league play, 8-4 on the season.
Sophomore Dale Kelley's sharp-
shooting from the field and sup-
erior team free-throw shooting
were big factors in the North-
western win. Kelley counted 32
points, and the Wildcats, out-
scored from the field, hit 30 of
their 40 free throws.

Indiana led 62-46, but with three
men each carrying four fouls

There is a well-entrenched belief ingrained in Michigan athletic
structure that it is necessary.
There is a similar widespread feeling among football coaches
that becoming athletic director at Michigan or anywhere else would
bs a move "upward" on the sports ladder.
Indeed, it is generaly accepted in most sports circles that athle
directorships and sports administrations really do have something
to do with winning and losing football games.
What a bunch of crap.
If there ever was any relation between the sweat and grime of the
football field or the basketball court or the trampoline and the build-
ing on the corner of State and Hoover Streets, it has long since been
lost in the bureaucratic maze and blue which characterizes Mchigaxs
The intricacies of today's political frankenstein defy accurate
description. The NCAA, the AAU, the USTFF, the Olympic com-
mittees, the Boards in Control of Collegiate Athletics at every
university across the country. . . these have proliferated to such
an extent that the mind is baffled when it tries to deiniate the
functions of each.
The plain, simple truth is that all of these sewing circles and
bridge clubs have nothing to do with collegiate athletics. Rather they
are the playthings developed by ex-athletes and ex-coaches and alumni
and faculty who need somebody and something to manipulate.
The lines of communication between the gridiron grass and the
dining room conferences have become so clogged that even an over-
whelming dose of weed-killer could only temporarily clean up the me@
And without a doubt, the political ugliness would spring right back
up again anyway. \
Perhaps the most obnoxious aspect of the whole situation is the
self-righteous secrecy of most administrators, especially here at Mich-
Why doesn't the public have a right to know who is in the
running for athletic director? Not because it would have anything
to do with the choice of a new dictator, but because it's part of
the game to play "politics" behind closed doors in whispers and
Personally, I find the entire game a little sickening, and would
like to prescribe a new set of rules.
First of all, it is obviously too late to save college athletics from
the tentaclistic grasp of perverted professionalism, but hopefully, thee
is still some chance that the student body at large can be spared
from its murky influence.
President Fleming has said that the appointment of H. 0. Crisler's
successor as czar will be delayed until the Regents act upon a proposal
to re-organize the athletic structure.
Under the proposed plan, physical education and intramu i~s
would no longer fall under the direct control of the Athletic Boas
This plan deserves the wholehearted support of every student
at Michigan. Why let a remote and unresponsive group of alumni
and administrators dictate the conditions under which we enjoy
individual participation in amateur sports?
The fact is that they don't give a damn about us. Witness that,
in his 28 years as athletic director, Crisler has completed (with the
opening of the Events Building) 11 of his 12 original projects. T
only one which never did and never will receive adequate consider-
ation is, in Crisler's own words, "the one for the students."
This entails expansion of the ridiculously-inadequate intramural
facilities into some semblance of a semi-comprehensive program,
which would allow average students the right to remain physically fit.
And that's all there is to it! Simply an appropriation for the stu-
dents. How absurd!
But there are no funds for doing anything for the students,
because it is profitless. This is why Crisler's Board, the Regents
the faculty senate, all the various vice-presidents and (up until
now) the president, have not fulfilled their responsibility to the
None of these people can effect a change alone. And nobody
knows where whose authority starts or ends.
Thus it is time for a basic change.
Intramurals and physical education do not belong under the
"partial jurisdiction" of the Athletic Board, or the Regents, or the
faculty senate, or any other quasi-representative group.
Instead the students need an active and dynamic voice in the
area of physical education and recreation. The bureaucracy has shown
that it doesn't care about the students, so it is now our responsibility
to initiate a new system of control.I
No longer can the intramural directors be expected to rely on
"excess funds" from the athletic corporation in order to function.
Appropriations must come from the University General Fund, and
they must be administrated by a board without other duties or respon-
The rest of the administrators will kindly stick to their
whispers and dollar sign. We-the students-want to play basket- '
