IT WASN'T LONG AGO that D u f f y Daugherty worried
about things like 10-10 ties with Notre Dame and got mad at
people like Ara Parseghian just because Ara played more con-
servatively than Bill Buckley
But now Duffy has had to accustom himself to the rather
ordinary concerns of how to keep his failing Spartans above the
water level of .500.
In case you haven't noticed lately, Duffy's Irish has been
pretty well stewed in the last couple of years and this season
will probably not break the trend. Last year the MSU herd
stampeded itself into seventh place in the Big Ten, running over
only Wisconsin and Northwestern to five conference losses.
Two years ago they won only three games the entire season,
again trouncing the Badgers and Wildcats plus a 34-0 search
and destroy mission against You-Know-Who.
This year they opened with two unimpressive victories over
two unimpressive teams, Washington and SMU gust because

But Duffy's last two encounters, with Notre Dame (42-28) and
Ohio State (54-21), were worse devastations than all the riots
in Ulster.
deal to look forward to. After today's loss to Michigan his en-
tourage of assorted farm animals (also called football players)
will have to face Iowa, Indiana, and Purdue, three teams with
slaughterhouse offenses.
On top of all this, the Spartan injury report sounds like
the latest Viet Nam casualty figures - split end Gordon Bow-
dell out for the season because of a ruptured spleen, running
baks Tommy Love and Eric Allen "hobbling during this week's
practices," and tight end Jim Nicholson "probably not ready for

I don't.
My distaste for ~Duffy Daugherty is of a personal nature. It
goes back to February, 1968, when I wrote a story about illegal
athletic practices at MSU. Among the infractions cited were
free tickets to local movie theaters, free and unlimited long dis-
tance phone calls, and passes to snack bars in the athletic dorm-
itory complex.
I WAS A LOT MORE naive about the college sports world
then and believed that if something dirty was going on, all you
had to do was write about it and the authorities would act. Well
the authorities (Big Ten Investigator John Dewey and Commis-
sioner Bill Reed) did act, but with kid gloves. After Dewey's in-
vestigation they "reprimanded" one of Duffy's assistant coaches
and a football player, both of whom were implicated in my
But the larger issue of the professional nature of athletics
at Moo 'U' or in the Big Ten was left untouched.
Getting back to my feud with the Darling of East Lansing,
relations became strained when Duffy told Chicago Tribune
Sports Editor Dave Condon that he was going to sue me and the
Daily for libel. Unfortunately, when Duffy made this statement,
he hadn't as yet read the article he was fuming about. I guess
when he finally consulted with his lawyers, they gave him a flat
no, since we haven't heard a peep out of him since.
What made me mad was the air of saintly purity Daugh-
erty tried to project during the whole incident. When asked by a
Daily Reporter what he thought about the story he said, "We
work hard within the spirit of the rules. It's our whole life. Any-
time you call us liars or cheats we're bound to be very much
upset and perturbed about it"
DAUGHERTY ALSO MOANED about the potential b a d
publicity for the blemish-clean record of MSU. (Actually, one
ugly sore popped up in 1953 when Duffy was assistant coach to
Biggie Munn, now athletic director. The Big Ten put the school
on probation when it discovered the existence of the Spartan

While thousands of people were streaming towards the
Stadium Wednesday to take part in a massive anti-war rally,
Michigan head football coach Bo Schembechler was walking
quickly to his office in the Athletic Administration Building.
"We're preparing to wage a war, not end one," Schem-
bechler said with a smile.
That was one of the few times Schembechler smiled all
week. For despite the fact that the Wolverines are ranked
13th in the nation and rated eight point favorites to beat

than that of the quarterback,
