This Week in Sports
With Boston out of the way, baseball is left with the same four teams
that contested last year's divisional playoffs slugging it out for 1978 honors.
Kansas City and the Yankees begin their best three out of five divisonal
playoff tonight at Royals Stadium. Meanwhile, Philadelphia and Los
Angeles take another day off before beginning their series tomorrow. The
NL playoffs, which begin in Philly, do not have a travel day on Thursday as
the Royals and Yanks do. If you haven't guessed by now, this is to insure that
prime time has a game every night this week.
Once the playoffs have been decided the World Series will begin at the
home of the National League team.
Michigan hosts the Wildcats of Arizona in the last full week of inter-
sectional Big Ten games. The conference didn't fare so well last weekend,
with only Ohio State, Illinois and Wisconsin joining the Wolverines on the
winning side of the ledger. In 20 games against non-league opponents, the
Big Ten is dead even with ten wins against ten losses.
This week Illinois is. at Missouri, Notre Dame at Michigan State, Min-
nesota hosts Oregon State, Iowa entertains Utah, Northwestern at home
against Arizona State, Wake Forest invades Purdue and Woody Hayes
welcomes Southern Methodist.

Fishing around ahead
for ex-Tiger Houk

Bo's predictable?...
...It's Greek to me
It was raining, Michigan was pounding Duke into the ground (swamp)
31-0 and most everyone around was bored. A school teacher, elementary no
doubt, cane up with a brilliant suggestion to pass the time. "Let's play a
game;"she shouted from three rows back.
"OK," a wet and wasted alumnus yelled back, "but what kind of
"We could try and guess the final score," an enthusiastic freshperson
suggested. No one took him seriously.
Then a professor-like individual suggested we try and figure out the line-
up on the field. With all the substitutions Bo was making there was a consen-
sus that such a game would be near impossible.
Finally an umbrella-protected lady suggested we try and predict what
play Bo would call on each down. I thought it wasa good idea and looked
forward to some tough competition. But as soon as my enthusiasm surged, it
declined at the remarks of a drunken frat man next to me.
"That won't work, you jerks," he stated. "Bo is so predictable, why wat-,
ching paint dry would involve more suspense. Give up on the contests and
watch the game."
I sat dripping wet, watching Smith off tackle, Dickey on the option,
Leonni up the middle. It wasn't predictable-at least as not as predictable as
drying paint.
So here, my Greek philosopher, is a test of Bo's predictability. Th
questions are those asked him at the Monday afternoon luncheon. Following
,are three possible answers, only one of which is correct.
You have 30 seconds to think about each question. Good luck.
QUESTION 1. Why did you kick-off to Duke to start the second half?
a)- I bet Virgil at halftimethat he couldn't hit the scoreboard in the Nor-
th endzone on the fly with a kick-off. I wanted to collect on the bet early s6 I
could send Leach out for hot dogs while the press was still around to see it.
(That kid can do anything.)
b) It was raining when we went into the lockerroom and with the con-
ditions what they were I would rather kick-off. The only way we were going
to lose was by our own mistakes so I thought we should kick. When we came
out of the lockerroom I saw that the rain had stopped and I figured I made
the wrong decision. Then again, when they said I tried to run up the score I
said 'what the hell, we gave them the ball in the second half.'
c) Leach, Huck, Davis and Clayton were playing euchere in thei
lockerroom and they weren't quite finished so I sent the defense out.
QUESTION 2. What did you think of Dickey's play?
a) Super. If Joe Falls hadn't started all of thisLeach for Heisman talk I
would probably start B.J. I can hear it now-the fans.in the south endzone
yell B and those in the north endzone yell J.
b) Well, I'm not up on my theatre. Is Dickey the guy who wrote
Camelot? Or was it One in a Million?
c) When you judge a reserve player you have to look at the situation
when he comes in. We were ahead 31-0 and he knew he couldn't blowit. He
wasp pretty loose. Overall he played pretty good. He made some bad
judgments .. but then Rick madqea bad judgment.
QUESTION 3. Did you see that water girl Duke had?
a) No
b) I'm not sure, what number was she wearing?
c) Yeah, I saw her. As a matter
of fact I turned to Dr. Jerry O'Con-
nor who was standing next to me and
said, 'That's the reason we're going RELEASE YC
to whip these guys.' FEELINGS ON'

By The Associated Press
DETROIT-Ralph Houk, now that he
has officially retired from 40 years in
the game, says he "wouldn't even con-
sider another baseball job-unless 15
years from now I'm stone broke."
He and the reporters jamming his
Tiger Stadium clubhouse office laughed
as Houk, who closed out his 16-year
major league managerial career Sun-
day, fired volleys of parting witticisms
and anecdotes.
DID HE, PERHAPS, hope for one
last chance to argue with the umpires,
throw his cap to the turf and kick the
"I wouldn't have done it because they
would have thought I was doing it to put
on a show," he said. Then, breaking in-
to a grin, he added, "I wouldn't do that
to those nice guys."
Asked if he might write a book about
his experiences, Houk, occasionally
puffing on his ever-present cigar, said:
"I never will because the only thing
that would sell would be something'like
Bouton's book ...
"THE ONLY BOOKS that sell are
ones where you have something cheap
in it and I wouldn't do that-although I
could put a lot in it."
Jim Bouton, former New York
Yankee pitcher under Houk, wrote
"Ball Four," a best seller which in-
cluded inside stories about baseball and
his teammates.
"Everybody thinks I'm retiring,"
Houk said. "I'm just retiring from
baseball. I've got a new job, maybe
tougher than ever: catching fish. And
you know my job will be tough-if
you've ever seen me play golf."
Houk, 59, said his biggest ambition
when his baseball career began in 1939
was, "to make the Joplin ball club or
the Topeka ball club" of the Yankees'
farm system.
"I THOUGHT that would be the high
point of my career," he said.
Later, he said, "I had more visions of

kick out of. I never worked so hard in
my life .... I'm not a desk man. I never
knew how to do all that paper work. My
file system was terrible, but my
secretary did a good job."
However, "I think it made a better
manager out of me . . . I don't think
people realize the problems you have in
the front office."
Houk said he'll probably feel funny
about his retirement about the time
he'd normally prepare for the winter
league meetings, then again when he'd
normally get ready for spring training.
