FUTURE IS NOW FOR BLUE, PURDUE

Buckeyes lead in Race for Roses

With two weeks left in the Big Ten
season, the conference race for the
Rose Bowl is down to three teams -
Michigan, Ohio State, and Purdue.
Michigan and Ohio State control their
own destiny - winning their last two
games will send either of them to the,
Rose Bowl.
Purdue, meanwhile, must hope for a
miracle -the Buckeyes losing their
last two games while the Boilermakers
must ,win their final two. If this all
sounds rather complicated, it gets wor-
se. The standings are as follows:
Conference All
Ohio State -6 0 0 9 0 0
MICHIGAN 6 0 0 8 1 0
Purdue 5 1 0 7 2 0
In.case of a two-way tie for the con-
ference championship, the Rose Bowl
representative would be determined-by
the winner of head-to-head competition
between the tying schools. If all three
teams tie, however, this rule would be
waived because Ohio State and Purdue
did not play each other this season.
In that case, the second criterion for
breaking ties, overall record - is used.
If the tie-breaking process comes to
this, Ohio State will go to the Rose Bowl
because Michigan and Purdue each lost
a non-conference game. Now let's get
down to specifics.
An Ohio State victory at home against

Iowa Saturday or in Ann Arbor a .
from Saturday will eliminate Pu
from the Rose Bowl picture. If
Buckeyes win one of these games,l
due could do no better than tie t
even if the Boilermakers won their
two games against Michigan and
diana. Any tie between Ohio State
Purdue will send the Buckeyes on
basis of overall record.
IN ORDER for Michigan to main
any realistic hopes of going to theI
Bowl, the Wolverines must wint
final two games at Purdue and at h
against Ohio State. This would lI
Michigan undefeated in the Big Ten
alone atop the conference standing
If Michigan loses the Purdue g
Saturday, it would still have a slim
at the .Rose Bowl. Then, if Mich
were to come back and beat Ohio S
that would leave all three teams
one conference loss. There's that t
way tie and Ohio State would g
Pasadena.
UNLESS - If Indiana were to
Purdue in the final week, this w
leave Michigan and Ohio State ina
way tie and Michigan would get the
under the first criterion - head-to-
competition.
A Michigan loss to the Buck
would eliminate the Blue from theI
Bowl picture. In that case, the
Michigan could do would be to tie

IF OHIO STATE wins its last two
games, at home against Iowa and at
Michigan, this will clinch an undefeated
season and a Rose Bowl berth. OSU
could conceivably lose either of its last
two games and still make it to

Pasadena.
Even if Ohio State loses to Iowa
Saturday, it will automatically get the
Rose Bowl bid if it beats Michigan. This
would leavethe Buckeyes in, at worst, a
tie for first place. Having beaten
Michigan and an overall record better
than Purdue's would give the Bucks the
bid.

Theith U drops t it
The m ajor surprise in this week's national rankings is Ohio State's drop,
from third to fifth in the UPI poll, despite a 44-7 thrashing of Illinois.
Michigan remained in the tenth position in both polls with its whitewash of
Wisconsin.
Undefeated Alabama sits atop the rankings for the third consecutive
< week, followed by Nebraska. A third Big Ten team, Purdue, also is among
the nation's top twenty, ranked 14th and 15th in the AP and UPI polls.

One would think that the days of
pioneering are over. This is 1979 and it
seems that in many fields, including_
athletics, man has reached his peak,
Perhaps man has, but not woman.
Women's swimming is in its 11th year
here at Michigan as a varsity sport.
Throughout those 11 years the.
Wolverine women have kept pace with
the fine tradition that has been a
trademark of all Maize and Blue
athletic squads.
"Michigan has had a fine swimming
tradition for 55 years and the women's
program is no exception," states Stu
Isaac, head coach of the women's unit.
THE WOLVERINE tankers have
dominated the Big Ten in recent years,
capturing the last four Big Ten cham-
pionships. They have also had more All-
Americans and National Champions
than any other Big Ten school.
Graduated from last year's cham-
pionship team is freestyler Katy Mc-
Cully, the best woman swimmer in
Michigan history. McCully leaves
behind a career that includes winning
nine Big Ten individual titles and
placing second five other times.
Despite the loss of McCully, the
Wolverines have 11 All-Americans
returning, including: Mary Rish, Barb
DonCarlos, Marie Palko, Sue Collins,
Marion Stanwood, Kim Olson, Monika
Scheff, Sharon Flaherty and divers.

Barb Weinstein, Julie Bachman and
Ann McDivitt.
"BACKSTROKE SHOULD once
again be one of our strongest events,"
said Isaac. "All of our backstrokers are
returning (DonCarlos, Rish and
Flaherty) and they have the training
background to make this their best year
yet."
In the breaststroke, the Wolverines
lost captain and Big Ten finalist Karen
Rydland, but excellent first-year
prospect Kathy Kooser, a national AAU
qualifier, and veteran Palko will team
up in all the breaststrokes, just as they
did when they swam at the B. R. Ryall
YMCA in Wheaton, Ill.
"Freshperson Lisa Larsen (will) add
a lot of strength in the butterfly and will
complement returning Big Ten finalists
Scheff and Collins," said Isaac.
"OUR DIVING team will have the
best one-two punch in'the nation with
Barb Weinstein and Julie Bachman."
Michigan's impressive first-year
swimmers are: Kooser, Larsen, Suzan-
ne Andierson, Carolyn Clymer, Jo
Melchior, Maurine Jewell and divers
Vicki Kimball and Liz Wright.
It appears this year's squad will once
again be in the thick of the Big Ten race
for top honors and for one of the top ten
spots at nationals. The Wolverine
tradition is alive and growing in
women's swimming.

Gridd
Picks
Michigan basketball coach Johnny
Orr was overheard at yesterday's prac-
tice telling team leader Mike McGee
that he would not get a starting position
if he failed to predict at least 17 out of 20
games in this week's Griddes.
McGee, who has started in each of his
two years at Michigan, responded by
slam-dunking one of Orr's assistants,
and saying, "Shoot, Coach, I have
enough trouble making 17 out of 20 foul
shots! "
