In

Dallas

heat

By ROD ROBERT
As soon as Michigan's Swim
Coach Gus Stager got off the
plane in Dallas Friday morning,
he was worried.
The temperature was 77 degrees,
later to go as high as 83. It re-
minded him of three years ago,
when a powerful Michigan swim
team came to Dallas with a good
chance of taking the NCAA's.
Those swimmers weA4 also greeted
with summer-like weather,rand
soon forgot that they were in "Big
D" for a swim meet. They only
thought of sun ana fun, and con-
sequently they blew the national
title.
Last Friday wasn't that much
different. The weather was beau-
tiful and Michigan lost to SMU
I61-52.,
Stager was somewhat appre-
hensive before the meet, tegrful
of another Dallas fiasco. So that
afternoon, he held a meeting with
his team, reminding them of what
happened three years earlier. He
told his swimners, "When you
get your job done, the one that
you came down here for, then you
can look at the pretty girls. but
not until after."
The team seemed to comprehend
the coach's fears, and slept for a
couple of hours before the meet.
But what they didn't compre-
hend was that SMU was a lot bet-
ter than they looked. Mustang
CoachFRed Barr, also known as
~"The Fox," had done a good job

"I expected that everyone of them
would be a second and a half fast-
er than they had ever done before.
SMU had shaved down (removed
hair from the arms and legs),
and this always lowers the times.
But some of them swam thre2 sec-
onds faster."
A lot of Wolverines swam faster
than they hadever done before,
too. In fact, the competition was
so fierce, that members of both
teams achieved the fastest tiries
in the nation this ;rear in six
events.
Undoubtedly, the wild cheers
from a partisan crowd also helped
to push the MUstanges to their
record times. There had been signs
all over Dallas telling of the Wol-
verine invasion, and the town re-
sponded with an enthusiastic
capacity crowd of 2,500.

SMU's Coach Barr defended the
scoring after Rydze's outburst, "I
thik the judges were right in pun-
ishing him (Rydze). The boy got
out of place and he had to be put
back in it.
One of the judges did come up
to Rydze after the meet and -aid,
"I'm sorry if you think I was pre-
judiced against you in scoring.
But you have to realize that I am
at home base."
Michigan's Diving Coach D ek
Kimball refused to call the judges'
scoring biased in any way. Kimball
said of victor Pyle, "He didn't miss
one of his dives."
After the low. board, Kimball
talked to Rydze and later recapi-
tulated his advice. "I told him that
even if he thought that the judg-
ing was bad, getting mad won't
do any good. He just has to show

nothing but praise for the Mus-
