NEW YORK-It is more than
likely that in moving from Green
Bay to Washington Vince Lom-
bardi will be the instrument that
will destroy his own standing as
a legend.
For it will be difficult, if not
impossible, for Lombardi, to du-
plicate the success he achieved
with the Packers-simply because
1969 is not 1959.
To understand that is to un-
derstand how Lombardi built the
Packers by judicious trades, bril-
liant drafting and pei'fect knowl-
edge, understanding and manipu-
lation of the resources available
when he first arrived for the 1959
Some of the resources, however,
no longer exist.

First, to disspell a portion of
the legend, Lombardi did not take
over a Green Bay team without
any talent and make it a winner.
What he did was take a team with
potential, strengthen it, mold it
and maintain it.
To look at the 'roster in 1958 is
to find such names as Bart Starr,
Paul Hornung, Jim Taylor, For-
rest Gregg, Jim Ringo, Jerry
Kramer, Max McGee, Ray Nitsch-
ke-the names that made the
Packers what they were during the
Lombardi era.
That club posted a 1-10-1 rec-
ord. Two years later, Lombardi
had the Packers in the champion-
ship game, and when his nine-
year reign ended he had won six
Western titles, five league cham-
pionships, including the last three

in a row, and the first two Super
He did it, however, in different
circumstances than exist now.
The means to build as quickly,
and maintain once built, are nlot
the same.
When Lombardi conducted his
first draft and tapped a guy
named Boyd Dowler there were
only 12 teams vying for talent
among the colleges. Now there are
Where Lombardi was able to
get every 12th best player in the
country-in his first three drafts
he selected such people as Dowler,
Bob Jeter, Herb Adderley, Ron
Kostelnik, Elijah Pitts-he now
must settle for every 26th.
And when Lombardi finally had
built, and wanted to maintain,
he was able to play the future
market, selecting a player s :ch
as Donny Anderson who still had
a year of college eligibility left
and wait for him to finish.
Now futures cannot be :drafted,
leaving , Lombardi less room to
operate within the rules of the

A referee's decision on the dead-
locked overtime heavyweight bout
preserved Michigan's narrow two
point lead over Michigan State,
as the 'Wolverines grabbed their
first' team trophy of the three-
year-old Michigan F r e s hm a n
Wrestling Tournament yesterday.
Going into the final match,
Michigan had built up a 98-96 ad-
vantage over State on four firsts,
three seconds, and thitee thirds.
But the Spartan heavyweight was
evenly matched by Toledo's wres-
tler, and after a three minute
overtime ended in a draw, the
referee awarded the bout to To-
Morpents earlier 191-pounder
Preston Henry had put Michigan
into the lead, escaping from West-
ern Michigan's Ken Colby and
then riding him the third period
for a 2-0 win.
The Wolverines three other first
places were taken by Ty Belknap
at 130, Herb Sudduth at 145, and
Therlon Harris at 177.
Michigan and Michigan State
both more than doubled third
place finisher Miami of Ohio's
score of,.43. In fourth was Central
Michigan with 33, and next was
Toledo with 27. Bowling Green
came in sixth, totaling 17 points.
Holding the final slot were the
teams from Western Michigan and
Grand Rapids Junior College with
15 each.
"You can't single out one guy

on the team for the victory," As-
sistant Coach Rick Bay said.
"Take Tom Littleton at 115. We
weren't planning on wrestling at
115, and I didn't think he could
make 115 from 123. But he wanted
to wrestle so much that he got
down." Littleton went on to take
third place and four team points
in the 115 division.
"We don't have guys in the
line-up like State did. On paper
they're more awesome," Bay ex-
But on the mats, Michigan came
out ahead. The Wolverines almost
captured their first top place fin-
isher in the 123 class. In a ,wild
match against Tom Chesher of
Central Michigan, Hagen lost 9-8,
to finish second.
Michigan's 130-pounder Ty Belk-
nap not onlytwon three bouts to
take first, but all his wins came
on falls. The two time state run-
ner-up from Port Clinton, Ohio;
took out his first two opponents
in 1:30 and 5:05 to face the Spar-
tan's Terry Auble in the finals. In
just over a minute, he had Auble
in a fall.
At 137, Paul Paquin couldnt
keep up with State's Ed Fisher
and was downed 7-4. But Sud-
duth rebounded for the Wolver-
ines, edging out Spartan Bob
Hellner, younger brother of for-
mer Wolverine wrestler John HIll-
ner, 4-1.
Brian Boyce, Michigan's 152-

pounder, dominated his first op-
ponent, Tony Chirco of Miami. He
then was pinned by MSU's cham-
pion-to-be Dave Holek, but uies-
tIed through the consolation
bracket to take third on a fast
pin of Dave Stroud.
It was the same story for the
Wolverine's wrestler at 160. Mark
Kyrias won his starting match,
and lost the following, but came
back to take third on a runaway,
The final head-to-head clash
between the leaders took place in
the 176 bracket, with State com-
ing out on top. Michigan's George
Surgent coasted through his first
two meets, 9-0 and on a pin at
5:45. In the finals he faced Spar-
tan Gerald Myalacek and lost, to
finish second.
Then Michigan's Harris squeezed
out a 5-4 victory on, riding time
at 1775for a first, and set the
stage for a climactic finish.
