Wolman, financially t r o u b I e dl
owner of the Philadelphia Eagles,
said yesterday he has agreed toi

team, reportedly to a Norristown,

"I want it understood the con-

Wolman said of the reported con-
tract with Leonard Tose.
Although Wolman confirmed
from his Silver Spring, Md., home
that he had signed a conditional
sale contract in excess of $15 mil-
lion, he declined to- confirm that.
Tose was the purchaser.
Tose was not immediately avail-
able for comment.
"The guy I'm selling to is a real
fine gentleman and would be an
asset to the citya ofuPhiladelphia,"
Wolman said. "I'm sure he will beI
acceptable to the National Foot-
ball League owners."
Wolman, who owes about $35
million to creditors, had to come
up with a contingent buyer under
an agreement filed before Joseph
0. Kaiser, a federal bankruptcy
referee in Baltimore.
The principal creditors are the

Michigan at the Events Building. Sorenson is currently number

muscular Howell is in the fourteenth spot with a 17.5 mark. Both
players were starters for coach Fred Taylor on last year's Big

And if you don't know WHICH State we mean by now, where

The Buckeyes are back in town.
If emotion has anything to do with success in basketball, the
Wolverines ought to do OK today because right now they should
be green with rage at their Columbus cousins.
The most recent flare-up of this eternal confrontation began
last year with the'Michigan cagers' visit to St. John's Arena. In that
contest, the Wolverines played almost as well as they did last Satur-
day night at Minnesota. Naturally, Michigan was . chased right off
the court in the first half and just went through the motions in the
second period.
The. return match in Ann Arbor was something else again.
Under a barrage of about a million fouls, the referees were the
deciding factor as they handed OSU a tight decision in a game
nobody in this town will ever forget.
After receiving such gentle treatment from their Ohio friends,
Michigan was nice enough to do the Buckeyes a favor as they upset
Iowa at Iowa City to give OSU a tie for the Big Ten Championship.
The next major meeting was on the football field. The date
was November 23, 1968. One genuine Rose Bowl trip went out the
Surely Michigan does not feel it has gotten an even break out
of all..this. Victories in wrestling, swimming or gymnastics don't seem
to give any satisfaction since OSU has very little in these sports and
cares even less.
Maybe the basketball team will be able to do the trick. As usual,
it all depends on whether the supercharged offense can overcome a
super-porous defense. In other words, are the Wolverines capable
of standing up to impending onslaught without flinching.
The pressure for getting back at these mental midgets is quickly
increasing, and a full house today will not be content until the scum
. is ground into the dust.
?Under these circumstances, if the Wolverines get a sizeable
lead they would be advised to go for the two point conversion.
