Tate whips Coetzee


PRETORIA, South Africa (AP)-
John Tate singlehandedly took care of
South Africa's attempt to climb onto an
important international sports plat-
form-the heavyweight championship.
Using short jabs in the second half of
the fight, Tate scored a unanimous 15-
round decision over Gerrie Coetzee and
won the World Boxing Association
heavyweight championship last night.

TATE, WHO came in at 240 pounds
but had no problem handling the
weight, showed great patience in the
early rounds, trying to finesse Coetzee
into mistakes. Then, beginning in the
seventh round, Tate began scoring
heavily to the body and at the head, and
took control of the fight to become the
successor to the retired Muhammad

The championship began to come
Tate's way in the seventh round. He
opened a slight cut over Coetzee's right
eye and began to reach Coetzee's body.
The pattern continued in the eighth,
ninth and 10th rounds, with Tate begin-
ning to use his strength and Coetzee
beginning to tire.
THEN, IN THE 11th round, Tate lan-
ded a good right to the head and

special to the Daily
CHAMPAIGN-Michigan's 27-7 win
over Illinois yesterday kept the streak
alive that few people know about. The
defeat was the 16th consecutive Big Ten
loss bestowed upon the luckless Illini.
The last time Illinois won a conferen-
ce contest was in 1977, when they beat
Purdue and Indiana back-to-back. The
victory over the Hoosiers was also the
last time the Illini won at home.
Against Michigan, Illinois has won
just once in the past 21 years, that vic-
tory coming back in 1966. With these
facts in mind, it's easy to see why Illini
coach Gary Moeller will want to pack
up his bags and get away from
coaching. Moeller instead played out
the things his teams did well against the
Wolverines yesterday, rather than
dwell on the negative.
"Observing on the field, it seems like
that was one of the best defensive effor-
ts, without any doubt, that we've had all
year," Moeller said in a somber post-
game interview. "We played a lotbet-
ter defensively this week than we did a
week ago (against Purdue. We attacked
things more; we were a more
aggressive team, and that's the thing
that's important to us.
"It's just a real shame, in a game like

that," Moeller added, "that our offense
had to turn the ball over, especially in
the third period and also in the fourth in
the position that they turned it over in."
Moeller attributed his offensive lack
of success this year to a slew of injuries
that have befallen several key players.
Injuries to quarterbacks Rich Weiss
(separated shoulder) and Lawrence
McCullough (knee) have forced inex-
perienced junior Tim McAvory into the.
starting role the last two games.
- Also out, either for the season or for
several games, are offensive tackle
Tin Norman, Ray Pasevic and Tom
Kolloff, all with knee injuries, starting
wide receiver John Lopez (shoulder)
and starting center Lee Boeke (broken
"We've had problems," understated
Moeller. "We've had a few too many in-
juries to go ahead and start playing a
high scoring game with a team like
Michigan from an offensive standpoint.
But I really believe as long as the
people who replaced them are trying,
that's all we can ask."
With a healthy team, Illinois would
most likely have more scoring pun-
ch-something they have desperately
needed. And with that additional
scoring punch, the Illini might be 3-3-1

on the year instead of a lowly 1-6 (0-4 in
the Big Ten).
If Illinois would have gained just nine
more total yards in three games, they
would indeed have a respectable
record. But the Illini failure to score
from inside the five yard line against
Missouri, Navy, and Iowa has left them
with no hope for a winning season.
But then Illini fans have seemed to
grown accustomed to losing in recent
years. Since Moeller's arrival three
years ago,a Illinois has recorded just
five winds and two ties in 29 games, cer-
tainly nothing to brag about.
The constant losing is what bothers
Moeller the most. The string of losses is
growing and with the losses comes
pressure, especially from the fans and
"Anybody in sports wants to win,'"
said Moeller. "The fans certainly are
no exception. But I can't think in my
mind of anybody who wants to win
more than the coach.
"I just hope the fans and alumni will
see behind the scenes that there's
something good happening beyond the
won-loss record."
Michigan coach Bo Schembechler
also hopes Moeller is given a chance.
"When he came here (to Illinois) he

Meyer rolls
to CC win
Fighting a stiff breeze and a rolling
10,000 meter course- at the Michigan
Golf Course Greg Meyer glided to an
easy victory over soft competition in
yesterday's Michigan Federation Meet.
Meyer, the defending champion of the
cross country event, finished in 31:53.2,
almost a minute off the course record
he set last year:-
The lack of competition was mainly
due to the absence of the top eight
Michigan harriers as they sat the week
out before the .three biggest meets of
the season begin on consecutive Satur-
TIHE WOLVERINES did enter ten
runners in the .meet with transfer Ed
Ostrovich placing the highest for
Michigan. Ostorvich finished fourth
overall in 34:05,0 behind Meyer, Mike
McGuire (running independently) and
Tim Fox (running for the Great Lakes
Track Club).4
Other Michigan harriers finishing
high were Doug Ward (fifth), Mike
Kilpella (sixth), Bill O'Reilley (eighth),
Gerard Danokowski (ninth).
