NATIONAL OUTLOOK:

VoIis

By BOB LEES
A look at this week's football
polls shows that the power in the
nation now rests in the South
and West. On that basis, the bal-
ancing point should be some-
where west of the Deep South;
and, give or take a few miles,
that's where today's big game,
Louisiana State at Tennessee, is
found.
Actually, Knoxville, Tennessee,
has to stretch a point to fit that
geographical definition. But the
fourth-ranked Volunteers, after
last week's whipping of Alabama,
are still pretty much in the

Bulldogs Prime
Other games involving ranked
schools involve a return to the
Southland. Georgia, bidding for
the Southeastern Conference
crown and a prime bowl slot,
should have little trouble main-
taining its number six ranking
against winless Kentucky. But
North Carolina State might find
the going a little rougher in its
grudge match with Duke.
The big game in the East pits
Penn State against the Orange of
Syracuse. Penn State may be only
3-2, but their two losses have
been by a total of three points to
Navy and UCLA. Quarterbackj
Tom Sherman, listed among the
nation's offensive leaders, has
thus far passed the Nittany Lions
to a fine year offensively.

Football Morality:
'Murray, Bump,KAra, Duffy
For the football nut who believes his sport has everything, it
now has everything plus.
A real live moral issue has popped up. This is, the case of
the coach who piles on points when he has the opposition beaten.
The whole problem comes to a head today, when Michigan goes
up against Minnesota, while Michigan State visits Notre Dame.
The Wolverines are in the classic position. Last year, ignoringj
their own tradition of keeping the score down so as not to em-
barrass the opposition coaching staff, they scored 49 points in shut-
ting out Minnesota. Then, Michigan was solid against a Gopher
squad that had no offense, and on that day at least, no defense
either.
This year, Michigan is forecast to- pay through the nose in the
grand old style. Minnesota is loaded. They found a passer last week.
Coach Murray Warmath is angry over last year's game. The team
is boiling with'the idea of revenge.
The Wolverines, Bump Elliott and the other coaches, already
down in the dumps figure to be embarrassed.
So much for the model situation. The MSU-Notre Dame
issue is much more complicated. At stake apparently is the repu-
tation of Ara Parseghian as an ethical football coach, one who
plays by these "gentleman's" rules governing the sport at least
most of the time.
Strike one on Ara was when he violated everybody's sports-
manship code when he went for the tie last year against MSU. No
matter how bad a tie seemed in a situation like last year, it was
made infinitely worse by the fact that at the end of the game, he
made no effort to find out which team was better. MSU was given
the right to be bitter forever for being tied by a quitter, and taken
advantage of in the polls because Notre Dame has national appeal
and MSU is a state institution.
Strike two was the propensity first displayed last year to
smash a weaker team to wipe out the memory in the heads of
the sportswriters of a troublesome result the previous week. The
first victim was Southern California last year after the tie. LUSC
had just been hit by an eligibility crisis on top of some late
season injuries. Ara took advantage.
After Notre Dame lost to Purdue this year, they followed it up
with a 56-6 decision over hapless (hopeless), helpless Iowa, and the
revenge of USC preceded a 47-7 squeaker over scandal-racked Illinois.
This brings us right to today's game, and whether it becomes
strike three on Ara will be debated for years.
It starts with whether Coach Duffy Daugherty at MSU is dig-
ging his own grave. Hit by a fantastic number of injuries, he sus-
pended six members of his tea min what some have called a drive
for Ara's sympathy. Then Ara made it much worse for himself by
opening his big mouth and releasing the supposedly confidential list
of those suspen~ded.
The relative strength of the teams is now unbelievably unbalanced.
Notre Dame has the power to smear State all over the street. State,
was never very strong, losing two games when they were healthy.
The Irish were beaten twice by superior efforts.
The new point here is that Ara probably has nothing to gain,
either in the polls or anywhere else, by pouring it on now. The
excuse is taken away.
Assuming the gentleman's agreement is right, Ara has no
reason to take advantage of Duffy's position.
If he believes it is wrong, he will be prepared to be repayed if
he ever has a bad recruiting year.
Ahhhh, what the heck. Watch Michigan State win in the "upset
of the century".

Michigan's ruggers, presently
holding down second place in the
Western Division of the South
West Ontario Rugby Union, will
be out to improve on their 2-2-0
record today as they meet Wind-
sor Blackrock at Ferry Field.
Blackrock, the league's third-
17-0 drubbing by Michigan earlier
this year, and has won only a
place team, was the victim of a
single game (over last-place Mich-
igan State).
The ruggers have enjoyed a
fine season,sdespite the two con-
ference losses. Unbeaten by an
American team, they defeated
Indiana, ranked fifth in the coun-
try last year, a week ago.
Constant
The club has played either
three or four games each weekend,
giving every member a chance to
compete against teams from other
schools. Nearly sixty players saw
action against Indiana and Wind-
sor, as the club won three of four
games.
Michigan's 'A' team will face the
Blackrock squad at 3 p.m. in
the old stadium behind the intra-
mural building. An intrasquad
game, between the graduate and
undergraduate members of the
club, will precede the 'A' contest.
There is no admission charge,
and all who have never seen rug-
by played are encouraged to at-
tend.

Crossers

After dropping a 7-3 decision
to Michigan State in the season
opener last week, Michigan's la-
crosse club takes on Notre Dame
in South Bend today.
The Irish handed the 'crossers
a one-sided 8-1 loss when the two
clubs last met in 1965. But the
contest will be Notre Dame's first
of the fall season, and Michigan
is counting on the experience
gained against MSU to give them
the advantage.
Today's game will complete
Michigan's fall schedule, since La-
crosse is primarily a spring sport.

By The Associated Press
DETROIT .J? The Boston Cel-
tics remained undefeated last
night as they routed the Detroit
Pistons 128-109 for their fourth
straight National Basketball As-
sociation victory.
Breaking a 23-23 tie late in the
first period with seven straight
points - five by Tom Sanders,
the Celtics opened a 34-29 lead by
the quarter's end and from then
on never were in trouble.
With John Havlicek dropping
in eight points, the Celtics in-
creased their bulge to 62-50 by
halftime.

The Michigan golf course will
close for the season at 5 p.m.
on Tuesday, Oct. 31. All golfers
should clear their lockers be-
fore this date as the clubhouse
will be closed until next spring.

Then in the third period, Bos-
ton turned matters into a rout
by outscoring Detroit 24-7 in the
first six minutes and subsequent-
ly ledby as many as 32 points be-
fore finishing the period with a
102-75 edge.
In the quarter, Sam Jones was
the big man for the Celtics with
nine points.
From then on, the reserves took
over for both sides.
Havlicek topped the winners
with 22 points with Sam Jones
adding 21 and Bailes Howell 19.
Dave DeBusschere scored 26 for
the losers, who now are 2-3 on
the season.
PHILADELPHIA - Hal Greer
showed a hot hand for the fourth
straight game as the jump shot
artist led the Philadelphia 76ers
to an easy 132-115 victory over
the Seattle Supersonics in a Na-
tional Basketball Association
gam elast night.
Greer scored 26, boosting his
total for the last four games to
138 as the unbeaten 76ers won
their fifth straight. It was the
third consecutive loss for the
Supersonics, who have won only
one of six games in their maiden
season in the league.
Greer shot seven for 13 from
the field and 12 for 15 from the
foul line in the mismatch. The
Supersonics, suffering natural
growing pains, never had a
chance as the defending NBA
champions raced to a 17-2 lead.
Seattle was held without a field
goal for the first six minutes and
was never in the game even
though it cut the margin to 10
with a lot of garbage shots in the
late minutes.
