Red Wings Rally To


Masochism, Sadism
And Sibling Rivalry
After reading Eric Erickson explain Luther's rebellion against
the Catholic Church in terms of an anal complex it occurred to -me
that if something as perplexing as the Reformation could be sim-
plified into Freudian lingo an elementary sport like football might too.
Essentially football can be viewed as a desperate quest to
return to the womb which is represented by the endzone. This
is reflected in the way fullbacks plunge over for touchdowns,
normally landing in a definite prenatal position on the endzone
turf. The endzone itself is quiet, tranquil territory which provides
a refuge from the brutal tackling elsewhere on the field.
The quarterback who runs most of the action must be considered
a father figure. His teammates obey him, but secretly are jealous of
his role. The opposition vents its sadism on the quarterback who
must often ."eat the football," a form of oral regressiveness.
When a quarterback eats the ball the coach, representing the
superego along with the screaming fans, will often pat the signal
caller on the rear (anal regressive) and assure him that he'll do,
better next time. This is a clear sublimation, for the coach reallyf
loathes the back because he frustrated the vicarious pleasure he gets
from watching those he taught perform well.
The Kickoff Trauma
A football game begins with an explosion-the kickoff. Two
teams collide with the result being a birth trauma for the players
and spectators. Occasionally, this first play will determine the;
future course of the game. And generally it is the initial quarter
that sets the tone of the entire contest.
Games are won and lost by the blocking in the offensive line-
a masochistic undertaking if ever there was one. A blocker inflicts
pain on, himself, complimenting the sadistic urges of the defensive
line. It is this complimentary nature that makes football. such a
wonderful family sport. Everybody on the field has a purpose, a
clear goal. The fan can identify with the tackler, the tackled, the
bench'warmer, the coach, even the referee. '
Naturally there is aberrant behavior on the field. Occasionally
one sees a right halfback giggle with glee when his counterpart
on the left side gets mangled byfa 300-pound guard. This is a
blatant case of sibling rivalry.
When the quarterback's protection is trampled and he scrambles
for shelter from the mob we see the genesis of paranoia. If the
pocket collapses the passer will try fewer and fewer passes, choosing
to make quick handoffs and then running for cover.
At halftime with a team trailing by twenty points the coach
tries to produce conversion reactions in his players. A type of faith
healing, he attempts to transform the lethargic egos before him into
snarling ids. ,
And what type of esoteric brainwashing technique does he use
in the locker room to elicit the killer in them?

DETROIT - The Detroit Red

then roared back to gain a 3-3 tie

No Laughing Matter?
NORFOLK, Va.-Football Coach
Alex Bell of Villanova may be
crying on the inside this season,
but he's laughing on the outside.
Interviewed by the Norfolk.
Ledger-Star, here is what Bell
had to say :
"Are you disappointed in your
1-6 record?"
"Truthfully, I didn't anticipate
a good team."
"How good is the defense?"
"It can't stop anybody."
"How good is the running
"We don't run too good."
"And the passing game?"
"We can't throw too good."
"Who is your leading ball-
"We don't have one.;
"When did things start to gox
bad for Villanova?"
"It started in spring practice,
when we couldn't stop each other."

The second gravest problem confronting college students
today is inferiority feelings. (The first gravest problem is,
of course, the recent outbreak of moult among sorority
house canaries.) Let us today look into the causes of infe-
riority feelings and their possible cures.
Psychologists divide inferiority feelings into three princi-
pal categories:
1. Physical inferiority.
2. Mental inferiority.
3. Financial inferiority.
(A few say there is also a fourth category: ichthyological
inferiority-a feeling that other people have prettier fish-
but I believe this is common only along the coasts and in
the Great Lakes area.)
Let us start with the feeling of physical inferiority, per-
haps the easiest to understand. Naturally we are inclined
to feel inferior to the brawny football captain or the beauti-
ful homecoming queen. But we should not. Look at all the
people, neither brawny nor beautiful, who have made their
marks in the world. Look at Napoleon. Look at Socrates.
Look at Caesar. Look at Lassie.
What I mean is you can't always tell what's inside a
package by looking at the outside. (Sometimes, of course,
ypu can. Take Personna Stainless Steel Blades, for exam-
ple. Just one glance at that jolly blue and white package-
so bright and pert, so neat but not gaudy-and you know it
hasto contain blades of absolute perfection. And you are

right! Personna gives you so many shaves per blade it takes
a math major to count them. And they are luxury shaves-
smoother, comfortabler, kinder to the kisser. Moreover,
Personna comes both in Double Edge and Injector style.

But I digress. Let us turn now to the second category-
mental inferiority. A lot of- people think they are dumber
than other people. This is not so. It must be remembered
that there are different kinds of intelligence. Take, for in-
stance, the classic case of the Sigafoos brothers, Claude and
Sturbridge, 'students at a prominent Western university
(Dartmouth). It was always assumed that Claude was the
more intelligent just because he knew more than Sturbridge
about the arts, the sciences, the social sciences, the humani-
ties, and like that. Sturbridge, on the other hand, was ten
times smarter than Claude when it came to tying granny
knots. But no matter; everybody looked down on "Stupid
Sturbridge," as they called him, and looked up to "Clever
Claude," as they called him. But who do you think turned
out to be the smart one when their granny almost got loose
and ran away? You guessed it-good old Stupid Sturbridge.
We arrive now at the final category, financial inferiority.
One way to deal with this condition is to increase your in-
come. You can, for example, become a fence. Or you can
pose for a life class, if your college is well heated.
But a better way to handle financial inferiority is to ac-
cept it philosophically. Look on the bright side of poverty.
True, others may have more money than you have, but
look at all the things you have that they don't-debts, for
instance, and hunger cramps.
Always remember, dear friends, that poverty is no dis-
grace. It is an error, but it is no disgrace.

While Michigan State mentor
Duffy Daugherty seems to be able'
to claim a near monopoly on pros-
pective All-Americas, Associated
Press Regional Screening Board
members are pointing to Wolverine
Carl Ward and Tom Mack, among
others, as possible replacements
for some of the Spartan stars.
Halfback Ward, whose two
touchdowns were instrumental in
last week's victory over Illinois,
is a late-comer to the voting this
year, but has been noted for his
startling moves and tremendous
speed. Mack, an offensive tackle,
has been praised constantly for
his blocking and remarkable
maneuverability, as has team-
mate on the left side of the line,
Charlie Kines, who was also tag-
ged this past week by the board
as a potential All-America.
Daugherty's Spartan list in-
cludes halfback Clinton Jones,
quarterback Steve Juday, offensive
end Gene Washington, linebackers
George Webster and Ron Goovert,
and 286-pound middle guard Har-
old Lucas, while overlooking AP
I regional candidates Bubba Smith,

Also singled out for particular
attention by the board were Notre
Dame halfback. Bill Wolski, two-
way end Aaron Brown of Min-
nesota, and safety Nick Rassas of
Notre Dame.-
Wolski won AP Back of the
Week honors for his five-touch-
down performance in fourth-
ranked Notre Dame's 69-13 mas-
sacre of ,Pitt. But MSU's . Jones
