NCAA Investigates Colorado
For Grid Recruiting Violation

No. Dominant WCHATeam': Renfrew

BOULDER, Colo., (P) - A Uni-
versity of Colorado official said
today the university has been no-
tified it is under investigation by
the National Collegiate Athletic
Association. '
This confirmed earlier reports
that the NCAA was studying re-
ports of illegal football recruiting
practices at the university.
Colorado won the Big Eight Con-
ference grid title this season and

will play Lousiana State in the
Orange Bowl at Miami Jan. 1.
"The university has received
notification from the NCAA that
an official inquiry is now being
made concerning alleged infrac-
tions of NCAA rules," said Carl-
son, director of athletics.
"The university has been asked
to provide certain information by
Feb. 1, if possible. We have assur-

ed the NCAA of our full and com-
plete cooperation."
Carlson declined to discuss the
case further or go into the nature
of the alleged infractions.
Last summer Manuel Congedo, a
260-pound football tackle who was
recruited by the university, said
he was questioned by Arthur Berg-
strom, an NCAA investigator.
"They think Colorado is giving
large sums of money for football
players," Congedo said in a Den-
ver Post Interview, "but I can
tell you the school doesn't do it."
Congedo has not played at Colo-
The Post said it learned that
members of the university football
coaching staff and a number of
players have been questioned by
Colorado officials.

Michigan hockey coach Al Ren-
frew is in a very fortunate posi-
tion-he's got nothing to complain
His team has won all five of its
games. He has only one injury of
importance. His team holds the top
spot in the Western Collegiate
Hockey Association. His three lines
are all producing. And last but not
least, the invincible Denver of last
year exists no longer.
Starting from the bottom of the
list, it seems like Denver of 1961-
62 is not like Denver of 1960-61.
The mighty Pioneers were blasted
for 16 goals in two nights by Mich-
igan Tech, the team that Michigan
defeated twice two weeks ago.
Offense Clicks
The first night was- the closest
of the two as the Huskies squeeked
by, 8-7. Saturday night's 8-2 win
is indicative of a slaughter. The
graduation losses of forwards Jerry
Walker and Bill Masterton, de-
fensemen George Konik, Marty
Howe, and Grant Munro, and
goalie George Kirkwood is evident-
ly too much for Pioneer Coach
Murry Armstrong to replace.

and Kirkwood were All-American's
last year.
"The WCHA is different than
last year," said Renfrew, "there is
no dominant team. You probably
won't see another like last year's
Denver for years."
With the Pioneer's two defeats,
Michigan has now taken undis-
puted control of the top spot in
the WCHA. Minnesota is the only
other team which has not lost any
WCHA games, but it hasn't played
Injury - wise, only defenseman
Don Rogers has a serious ailment.
Rogers injured his wrist during the
summer and it wasn't fully re-
covered at the start of the'season.
During the first game with Michi-
gan Tech he reinjured it but he
has continued to play.
"Don has been playing with a
cast on and it has hurt his shoot-
ing, what he needs is to rest it,"
said Renfrew.
Renfrew was pleased about the
balance of his three lines. Of the
12 Michigan goals last weekend,
the first line (Red Berenson, Gor-
don Wilkie, Ron Coristine) ac-
counted for four tallies; the second
line ,(Bill Kelly, Larry Babcock,
Tom Pendlebury) contributed
three, while the third line (Al
Hinnegan, Gerry Kolb, Carl White)
added five.
"The third line won Saturday's
game for us," said Renfrew. Kolb,
third line center, led Michigan's
4-2 Saturday night win with two
goals and an assist.
Keep Three Lines
"We're going to keep the three
lines just as they are," said the
Michigan coach.
Renfrew does have one problem,
lack of depth at defense. For the
games to date, Michigan has been
skating three defensemen (Rogers,
Wayne Kartusch, Ross Morrison)
with Mike Hanov coming in briefly
in spots.'
"It's rough when you have only
three, we're trying to work Hanov
in more and more," said Renfrew,
"we could have been in serious
trouble when Morrison went into
the box for five minutes last Satur-

Both Wolverine goalies, sopho-

Butts will probably alternate in
the nets according to Renfrew.
Gary allowed three goals in the
Wolverine's 8-3 win in Friday's
Cobo Hall rout. Butts allowed two
goals on Saturday. Gray has now
allowed five goals in three games
and four of them have been when
the Wolverines were short-handed.

"We could take lessons from
them on how to run a wrestling
meet," said Michigan wrestling
coach Cliff Keen after yesterday's
Keen was commenting on the
excellent meet conditions to which
he and the Wolverines were treated
in their dual meet at Hofstra. The
Wolverines had returned home
Monday night after their second
meet of the eastern swing with
Navy. They won both meets.
Hospitable Treatment
"There was much more .. . well,
I'd guess you'd call' it pageantry
there than there is at meets here
in Ann Arbor. They had a capacity
crowd, and they treated us with
perfect hospitality," he added.
"It's just a fine little school with
a very good wrestling team for its
size. Most of the top wrestlers in
the area (Hofstra is located in
Hempstead, N.Y.) are grabbed up
by larger schools, but they manage
to hold on to some good ones."
Hannon Fine
"Their 123-pounder, Don Han-
non, is a real dandy. He could hold
his own in any conference. He's a
real wrestler."
"Navy was probably a stronger
team than Hofstra. Hofstra was

stronger in the first three weights;
Navy in the last five. Actually, the
meet was closer than the score in-
dicated. If we hadn't gotten those
three pins (by Gary Wilcox, Carl
Rhodes, and captain Don Corriere)
we'd have been in trouble."
Sophomores Improving
Keen was pleased with the per-
formances of his sophomores.
"They're still green, and they're
still making mistakes, but they're
bouncing right back. Give them
some time and experience, and'
the'll be good," he said.
Mike Vuocolo, himself a sopho-
more, did not wrestle in the 177-
pound class against Navy although
he defeated his man in the Hofstra
"Vuocolo stretched a muscle in
the Hofstra meet, so we gave Bill
Florence (another sophomore) a
chance. Vuocolo has beaten Flor-
ence once in practice matches, and
they have tied once. Vuocolo did
more wrestling in high school than
did Florence, and is ahead of
Florence at this point."
Barden Rough
"Jack Barden did very well at
heavyweight in both meets. He'll
stay there until Guy Curtis re-
covers from a back injury he suf-
fered during the football season.
Then we may move Barden down
to 177.
Curtis may be ready to go on
Friday when the Wolverines travel
to Bloomington to battle Indiana
in their third dual meet of the
"All in all, it was an enjoyable
and profitable trip," said Keen of
the Eastern swing. "The boys man-
aged to get in some good experi-
ence against good competition."
"I think that the meets were
good preparation for our upcom-
ing conference matches.

Swim Crown
In I-M Meet
Sigma Alpha Epsilon defeated
Beta Theta Pi 31-29 last night to
win the fraternity dual swimming
meet championship.
It was SAE's twenty-fifth
straight victory over a four-year
period. The last time SAE lost a
dual swimming meet was in Octo-
ber, 1957.
The Betas were winning before
the last event of the meet, the
