LITTLE BUCKEYE CELEBRATING
By BOB EMORY
While most Michigan students were
busy recuperating from the rigors of
eating all the holiday food, the
Michigan hockey team was busy
suffering the ol' double whammy in
South Bend, as the Fighting Irish swept
a weekend series from the Wolverines.
Judging from the scores, 7-3 on
Friday night and 6-3 on Saturday night,
it appeared to be no contest for Notre
Dame. But Michigan coach Dan Farrell
thought differently, sort of. "Well," he
said, "we just played terrible on
'Friday. Nobody played well. -"On
Saturday I thought we were much
better. We got a real good team effort
,and I was pleased with that."
THE VICTORIES moved the Irish
into first place in the WCHA with a 7-2-1
conference mark, one point -ahead of
Minnesota. Michigan avoided a crash
into last place due to the fact that
,Colorado College and Michigan State
continued to have their problems. The
-Wolverines are in eighth place with a 3-7
WCHA record and 5-7 overall.
Michigan was the victim of a bad
break in Saturday's game, a break that
might have cost it the game. Trailing 4-
3 at the twelve minute mark of the third
period, veteran defenseman Tim
Manning was given a ten minute
misconduct for failure to wear his
mouth guard while on the ice.
It didn't mean that the Wolverines
played short-handed for ten minutes,
but they did lose the services of
Manning for the rest of the game and
ince he is a key figure in leading the
team, especially the power play, it was
a coatly and needless penalty. Notre
Dame scored just 20 seconds later on a
short-handed goal (Notre Dame's Scott
Cameron was whistled off for tripping
along with Manning) and then the Irish
scored again three minutes later to put
the game away.
According to Farrell, it is still the
lack of offense that is plaguing the
Wolverines. "You can't win in this
league by scoring two and three goals a
game," he emphasized. "Our two top
scorers (Dan Lerg and Terry Cullen)
are out with injuries and if we had them
back we would probably double our

Dan Lerg, in the process of working his
strained knee back into shape,
yesterday stepped on a puck during
practice and rein jured his knee. He will
definitely miss the upcoming
Minnesota series and may miss more..
As a disciplinary action, Farrell has
suspended forwards Mike Coffman and
Bill Wheeler from practice this week
and for both games against Minnesota
for some frivolous off-ice activities over

and catching the chill of the wind.
But the students did not revolt, in
fact they were rather passive. After
the game they called for their
cheerleaders' garters, not Michigan
During the game the Ohio fans were
just like any other partisan fans. They
kept a constant barrage of toilet paper
and buckeye nuts in the air over the
stadium. All the while the Michigan
fans in their midst taunted them with
cheers of "Gooooo Ohio. Beeeeeat
Clemson" and "Roses are Blue" while
everybody agreed that Woody's game
plan was meant for birds and not foot-
Before the game a perky Buckeye
cheerleader ended one cheer by
throwing a rose into the crowd. Two
Michigan fans grabbed it.
The next time the roses were seen
was after the game. One of the
Michigan assistants came out of the
dressing room with two of them.
"They're for real," he said.
Then the players emerged from the'
dressing room. Big players, each
clutching a small red rose. They
passed the roses on to waiting
mothers and girlfriends.
These same families and friends
had waited happily outside the Notre
Dame locker room. They were
waiting after the Michigan State
Russell Davis came out and some
friends yelled his name. Davis had
felt sick most of the day but now he
looked up, smiled and winked.
Don Canham came out without a
rose. He carried a can of Coke.
Nobody yelled his name and he drifted
into the crowd, shaking An occasional

looked tired, but they posed willingly
as relatives and friends took their pic-
It'll be tougher for Simpkins and
Greer on New Year's Day than it was
last Saturday. While the Ohio State of-
fensive line weighed out to a 237 pound
average, USC comes up at 249.
USC is big and quick. They have
beaten four bowl teams (Alabama,
Stanford, UCLA and Notre Dame)
and one of the Big Ten co-champs,
The Trojans are led by junior
tailback Charles White, Heisman
Trophy candidate. He rushed for 114
yards against Michigan two Rose
Bowls ago. He has over 1600 yards this
year with one regularly scheduled
contest remaining, against Hawaii.
USC has outscored its opponents
131-6 in the second quarter. The
Trojans run the ball well, they throw
it well and they kick it pretty good too.
Notre Dame had USC beat,
everybody knew it except the Trojans.
They moved the ball in that last
minute with frightening proficiency
and won the game on a 37-yard field
When the Wolverines resume prac-
tice they will work on containing the
Trojan attack. But if the pride the
Wolverines showed coming out of the
dressing room in Columbus and the
subdued manner of the Ohio State
fans after the game are any in-
dication, getting there is more than
half the battle.

glumly as the Buckeyes were manhandled by Michigan. Ohio State fans had little
to cheer about, as the Blue defense held OSU to one first down in the second half.

Hark, ye patriots of the pigskin! This Sunday,
December 3rd, will be the only day on which you can
make application for tickets to the 1979 Rose Bowl
clash between Michigan and Southern California.
The sale, which will be conducted at Crisler Arena
between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., is open to all students,
faculty, and staff who do not wish to travel on any of
the Alumni Association tours, which already include
a game ticket.
AC(COI)ING TO Ticket Manager Al Renfrew,
"There is absolutely no need to start a line. There will
be a ticket for everyone who wants one."
In other words, you need not hurry to Crisler at 8
a.m. in order to apply for the precious ducats, which
are $18 apiece. Seat arrangement will be determined
when tickets are picked up in Los Angeles on Decem-
Here, then, is the procedure you should follow for
obtaining your Rose Bowl tickets:
" GO TO THE south end of Crisler during the
designated hours Sunday. Once there, you will fill out
a coupon, half of which you will keep in order to pick
up your tickets in Los Angeles. IT IS ESSENTIAL
that you not lose the coupon stub, as it will be your
only proof of identification to pick up the tickets.
" Take your stub to the Los Angeles Sports Arena
on December 31st between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Once
there, you will trade the stub, in for a ticket. This
process will operate onta first come/first serve basis;
in other words, the first person in to redeem their
stub in Los Angeles will receive the best seats, and s
The ticket department has laid down some groun
rules, thereby making the application/pickul
process more honest and efficient. Perhaps the mos
important rule is that the ticket applicant must shov
up in person at both Crisler and Los Angeles to clai
Thus one person cannot apply for anyone other tha
himself, or pick up anyone else's ticket. This rule wi
be enforced by having the applicant furnish his/he
signature at both locations. It would also be advisab
to bring a picture on both occasions.
The Sports Arena is located at the corner of Sante
Barbara and Figueroa streets in Exposition Park

Big Ten headds roll;
Iowan out, Stol next
By The Associated Press
Bob Commings was fired yesterday after five years as head football
coach at Iowa, Commings' teams were 17-38, including a 2-9 finish this
The firing was announced by university President Willard Boyd and
Athletic Director Bump Elliott following a three-hour meeting of Iowa's
Board in Control of Athletics.
Boyd recommended that Commings be given a position within the
university as assistant to the associate director of personnel for the
remainder of his contract.
"I'm abdicating, and that's about it," Commings said.
Asked if he would accept the position offered by Boyd, Commings said
"What does it mean?" referring to the strange-sounding title.
Comnmings, Iowa's MVP as a one-platoon guard on a Big Ten and Rose
Bowl champion team in the mid-1950's, said he had no regrets about
returningto Iowa as coach.
In other conference news, it looks like Minnesota stalwart Cal Stoll may
be the second Big Ten football coach to get the axe in as many days.
Minnesota Athletic Director Paul Giel has asked Gopher football coach
Cal Stoll for his resignation, The Minneapolis Star reported in yesterday's
The Star said Stoll fought Monday to retain the head coaching position he
has held for seven years, but to no avail.
University officials said Giel went home from work Monday without
making any formal announcement on Stoll's resignation,, but didn't rule out
the possibility that a statement would be forthcoming.
"I would like to have at least one more year with these kids," said Stoll.
"We've got a pretty good football team here for next year. It took me seven
years to get this team where it is and I would like to have that year with
"I don't know beyond that. There are only so many wars in a man. But I
would sure like to fight the next one.
Moving down to the South, Duke coach Mike McGee was hit with some
bad news, also.
Duke Athletic Director Tom Butters made it official at a Monday
afternoon news conference-football Coach Mike McGee has been fired by
McGee was replaced as head coach by Shirley "Red" Wilson, 52,
assistant athletic director. Butters called McGee "a man and a damn fine
