This Week in Sports
Ever wonder what in the world's going on in sports? (Sometimes we
do too.) Seriously, we here at the Daily have decided to set aside this space to
alert you as to what will transpire in sports during each week. If you think
you'll enjoy this plethora of irrelevent information-great! If not, tough.
We're going to print it anyway. So here goes:
Come down to Tiger Stadium and experience first-hand the thrill of a
real live pennant race. Baseball's finest fifth place team, the Detroit Tigers,
take on the rampaging New York Yankees tonight, tomorrow night and
Thursday. Game time is 8:05 for all three games. If you can't make it down
to the Stadium, don't worry. You can still see the Bengals as they play in
Cleveland Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The first two games will be
televised for reasons that elude me right now.

Returning for his 10th year as Master of Ceremonies, Glenn E. (Bo)
Schembechler welcomes us all to another exciting season of "Name The
Point Spread." Yes, guys and gals, game show fans and gamblers, our boy
Bo has lined up for your approval another fine football team completely
equipped with all the parts necessary to rip, tear, shread, mutilate and
destroy the likes of such keen competition as Duke and Arizona. Once again,
the Wolverines will seek that ever elusive perfect season capped by that
dream of dreams-a national championship! We invite you to join us as
another season of fun football begins when the Wolverines take on conferen-
ce foe Illinois at the Stadium this Saturday. Game time is 1:30 but the
cheerleaders, pom-pom girls and the marching band will appear about one-
half hour earlier. Havifun folks, only this year;leave your booze, frisbees,
and obscene cheers at lome. Uncle Don doesn't like those things any more.

Philadelphia at New Orleans of the week: Seattle at N.Y. Jets.
As if you didn't know, this Friday you can sit back and watch as
ABC televises the celebrated rematch between Eugene Crumsby and Fred-
dy Pismo. No, seriously, Muhammed (Mouth) Ali will attempt to regain the
heavyweight crown he lost earlier to Leon (Teeth) Spinks. It should be a
good fight in the mold of such earlier classics as, for example the Norton-
This being just the first full week of school, it's a little early for any
Michigan intercollegiate sports to begin (besides football, of course).
However, one school team is competing this week as the women's golf team
travels to Normal, Illinois to participate in the Illinois State Invitational this
Friday and Saturday. A bus trip is being planned but hurry, there aren't that
many spaces left.
Check this space same time next week for another week's worth of sports
schedules and other wortniess information. Until then . .

T HE DAY is Friday, September
The place is New Orleans. The
Muhammad Ali and Leon Spinks
s>' have battled it out for 14 ferocious
rounds. Most of the judges have it dead
even - seven rounds Ali, seven rounds
Spinks. The tension mounts in the
heated arena, as the spectators and
combatants wipe yet another bead of
perspiration from a drenched brow.
ALI SITS slumped in his corner, a
towel draped over his head, awaiting
the bell for the start of the 15th. He
glances into the Spinks corner and
scowls. Suddenly, Ali's eyes bug and he
jumps to his feet. "Look, Angelo!" he
cries. "Thas it! Thas the same black
AP Photo bottle Spinks drank from the lass time,
as Min- when he whupped me in February!"
t night's Spinks sipped from his mysterious
bottle and squinted at a waterlogged
label. After several moments of
concentration, he motioned for one of
e ts hs trainers to lean over. Spinkscupped
hshands to his mouth and whispered to
his trainer, "The Libels by 14."
His trainer looked at him
"HURRY!" SPINKS persisted. "I've
only got to midnight Friday to get these
picks in to the Daily at 420 Maynard so I
em whenhave a shot at a small two-item pizza
days and from Pizza Bob's."
"But why the Libels by 14?"
' is -fair demanded the trainer.
Renfrew "Because, the Libels, like Leon,
too, but never . . . " But he was unable to finish
his sentence, as the bell sounded to
begin the final round.

If any student football fans think
they've missed their chance at
redeeming their football coupons for
tickets, they can now breath a sigh of
relief. The athletic department ticket

An item on page three of the Saturday
Ann Arbor News said that students had
not picked up their quota of tickets and
that those tickets remaining would be
made available for public consumption
as of Sunday, September 10.
Many students were in an uproar
when they saw this announcement, but
ticket manager Al Renfew has clarified
"We've given students an extension
to pick up their tickets because many
did not return to school by the time of,
the first deadline.
"However, if tickets available for the
public run out, we will start distributing

are a lot of student tickets remaining is
an overestimation made by the ticket
office last spring.
"We wanted to give the students a
cushion, so there would be tickets for all
those who wanted them. We covered
ourselves pretty well. Of course we
