Take Michigan for example.
From 1901 to 1905 the Wolverines
had a 55-1-1 record, and over four
of those seasons a back named
Willie Heston rolled up a total of
600 points. That's not yards, that's

All these are short term theories
related to short term situations,
but if a long term theory is really
required, perhaps it is encompass-
ed in the phenomenon known as
Ivy League washout.
This affliction is brought about
by the knowledge that a school's
reputation hinges on academics
rather than athletics, a statement
usually hastened by a few judici-
ously placed losing seasons, say
about 15 in a row.

one thing, but proving it is another. That's
why Greene's says simply . . . compare a shirt

Baltimore an 8-5 underdog and
closed with the Dodgers humil-

Baltimore won the last two
games 1-0, with home runs deci-

Blair's homer won the third game
and Frank Robinson clinched the
title with a solo homer Sunday.
Robinson won the American

1966 season and a new ear as the
outstanding player in the World
Series. He seems a cinch to be
