-Big Ten

By The Associated Press
The Michigan Wolverines led
the way on the 1968 Associated
Press All-Big Ten team by having
six players named to the squad.
Michigan's record breaking Ron
Johnson was a unanimous choice
for the all-conference backfield.
Johnson rushed for 1,018 yards.
and scored 92 points to set Big
Ten records in both departments.
In a single game against Wiscon-
sin, Johnson rushed for 347
yards and scored five touchdowns;
again conference records. The
347 yards was an NCAA single
game rushing record.
Denny Brown, Johnson's back-
field mate with the Wolverines,
was named the All-Big Ten quar-
Brown led the Wolverines to an
t 8-2 season record and was the
Big Ten total offense leader and
collected 1777 yards total for the
season. Over the season, Brown
completed 109 of 229 passes for a
.485 average.
Michigan end Jim Mandich
joined teammates Johnson and
Brown on the All-Big Ten offense.
Mandich caught 43 passes for 574
yards during the season and dis-
tinguished himself as one of the
finest blocking ends in the con-
Tom Curtis, Wolverine safety,
was the only unanimous choice to
the defensive team. Curtis inter-
cepted 10 passes during the cam-
paign and returned them for 182,
yards. When asked to comment
upon his selection, Curtis was
somewhat tongue-tied, "I don't
know what to say," replied Curtis.

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - Two radical bas-
ketball changes will be ;proposed
by Big Ten coaches to athletic di-
rectors at the conference winter
meeting in Chicago next month.
Some coaches, who met Sunday
in Chicago, want the Big Ten
basketball runnerup to accept a
bid to the post-season National
Invitation Tournament in New
York City. They also want the 1-
and-1 free throw situation elim-
inated as it is currently under in-
ternational Olympic rules.
John Orr, Michigan's new
coach, proposed a post-season bid
to the Big Ten's second place
"The Big Ten never has gone
overboard for post-season com-
petition -but we've always been a
strong supporter of the NCAA's
national tournament in basket-
ball," said Commissioner Bill
Indiana Coach Lou Watson
was among those opposing post-
season play for the runnerup. "Af-
ter a team makes an all-out bid
for the conference title and the
NCAA tournament berth," he said,
"I think it is too much to ask
for the kids to compete in ano-
ther meet after running second."
Watson wants elimination of
the 1-and-1 rule.
"We are killing our game," he
said. "Nobody comes to see a free-
throw shooting contest and that
is all we will ever have as long
as we continue to make the 1-and-
1 foul call legal."
Reed said the elimination of the
rule is something for the rules
committee to act upon.
* * *
CHICAGO - Outfielder Willie
Horton of the Detroit Tigers has

joined another major league base-
ball star, pitcher Fergy Jenkins
of the Chicago Cubs, on the Har-
lem Globetrotters basketball team.
Both will appear at the Chi-
cago Stadium -Friday night and
will play with the Trotters as of-
ten as their schedules permit.
* * *
DETROIT - Mel Farr of the
Detroit Lions, who was the Na-
tional Football League's leading
ground gainer when he was in-
jured Oct. 27 in a game against
San Francisco, will undergo sur-
gery on his left knee Wednesday
morning and be out for the rest
of the season.
Farr, NFL rookie of the year in
1967, had helped spark the Lions
to a 3-1-2 record up to the date
of his injury. The Lions have not
won a game since then.
