Rugger
By CHUCK DRUKIS
Rugby is best played on grass.
Michigan's Rugby Football Club
opens its home season on Palmer
Field immediately following t h e
Michigan-Virginia football game
this Saturday.
But before Doug Harvey's vice
squad busts the game, perhaps an
explanation is in order.
The game will be played on
grass, but the only high will be a
natural one-the enthusiasm and
fervor of the players doing their
thing.
Rugby officially became a club
sport at Michigan in 1961. Since
then, it has become one of the
most popular club sports on cam-
pus.
A club sport differs on two
fundamental levels with a varsity
sport. A club sport is basically run
by its- members, who set their own
guidelines, whereas a varsity sport
has a closer affiliation to the Uni-
versity and must abide by its
stricter regulations. Furthermore,
the finances of a club are provided
by the players themselves while
a varsity sport receives greater fi-
nancial support from the Univer-
sity.
Presently, there are two teams
- the Blue and the Gold. The
Blue is the better of the two,
consisting of the older and more
experienced players, while the
Gold is comprised mainly of
younger players. The teams are
selected purely on a competitive
basis from a player's perform-
ance in practice and official
games.
Why does a person choose to
play rugby, a sport that has not
yet achieved national popularity?
Conceivably the players themselv-
es could best answer that ques-
tion.
Chris Penoyar, a sophomore, is
starting his second year of rugby.
"I played freshman football for
a week and quit. I didn't like the
strict regimentation. I decided to
go out for rugby, and liked it."
Ron Smith is a senior, major-
ing in psychology. "I like the soc-,
ial aspect of the game. The play-
ers are different from other
sports. One plays because he likes

the game, not because he is out
to kill someone."
Steve Chapman went out for
rugby just to stay in shape for
wrestling. Now he has given up
wrestling for rugby.
Walt Holloway is a grad stud-
ent working on a Ph.D. in chem-
istry. "Rugby provides a chance
for travel. It is also one of the
few sports that allows grad stu-
dents intercollegiate activity."
Ross Vickers, working for a
Ph.D. in psychology, analyzed rug-
by as providing "a physical and
emotional release."
Perchance the most astute ob-
servation of rugby can be discern-
ed by a member of the opposite,
but equal, sex. Carol Garthwright
dates one of the players, and
comes to most of the games. "I
enjoy the game and I find it ex-
citing. Besides," she added, "I love
looking at guys legs."

Gridde Pickings

At first he saw nothing to arouse his interest. The usual shabby
bootlegs, new albums by various heavies and balladeers, a new one
called "Ostrich Mating Noises . . ." but HOLD ON! Stuck on a rack
way up on the wall, grinning out at the startled lad, was a new
album by POCO! He climbed spider-like up the wall, grabbed a hand-
ful of the albums and ran screaming from the store, outdistancing
the angry cries behind him. That boy was gone!
He ran like the wind across campus, never once pausing to ogle
hornily the braless lasses who roamed the Diag. The crazed lad sped
to his building and up to his room, fumbling with his keys. DAMN
those keys!
"Aieee!" he screamed and kicked in the door. He ripped off the
album's cover and crawled gibbering to his stereo. After various
frenzied ministrations he watched numbly as the needle dropped
down, down ONTO THE ALBUM!
Then, Lord, music filled the room: sweet bird-like harmonies
sailing into the ozone to the accompaniment of a honeyed steel
guitar.
The boy reeled, fell back and lay senseless on the floor. He had
POCO'd again!
Oh yes, fans, truck those Gridde Picks over here to the Daily
by midnight Friday and you may win . . . the new ,Poco album?
