CHICAGO () - Towering
Fergy Jenkins, after five sea-
sons as a 20-game winner, cap-
tured the National League Cy
Young award yesterday and ap-
peared certain to become the Chi-
cago Cubs' first $100,000 pitcher.
Jenkins was the first Cub hon-
ored with the Young award since
it was originated in 1956. It is
given to the outstanding pitcher
in each major league.
"I was happy when the Asso-
ciated Press, voted me the best
and the Cy Young awardluueoi
right - handed pitcher of 1971,
and the Cy Young award for the
National League puts the frost-
ing on the cake," Jenkins said at
a news conference at Wrigley
Field.
The 6-foot-5 J e nk i n s, who
turns 28 on Dec. 13, was voted
the award by the Baseball Writers
Association of America by a wide
margin over Tom Seaver of the
New York Mets.
Jenkins, whose 24 - 13 record
last season was tops in NL vic-
tories, hurried to Chicago from
a duck - hunting expedition near
his Chatham, Ont., home.
He laughed of f printed reports

that he would seek a $150,000 sal-
ary for 1972. "I don't remember
saying that," Jenkins grinned.
"I'm leaving negotiations up to
my two lawyers, but I certainly
think now my salary will be over
$100,000." Jenkins last spring held
out for $100,000 but settled for an
estimated $90,000.
He was pleased, but not over-
whelmed by becoming the pitching
counterpart of Oakland's Vida
Blue, recent AL winner of the
honor.
"I would have liked being in
a World Series, but I'm not say-
ing I'm glad I won the Cy Young
award. I'm glad I got it, because
there were a lot of good pitchers
who also could have won it," he
said.
A control specialist, Jenkins,
in five Cub seasons since 1967,
won 20, 20, 21, 22 and 24 gamet
and, during that span, overaged
40 starts and 309 innings pitch-
ed per season.
Jenkins wryly recalled that the
Philadelphia Phils traded him to
the Cubs in 1966 "because they
said I didn't have a major league
fast ball."
"I possibly throw a little harder

against the Phils now than any
other club."
Jenkins holds the Cub career-
strikeout record of 1,466.
In the writers' poll, Jenkins got
17 first - place ballots and 61
points, followed by Seaver, then Al
Downing of the Los Angeles Dod-
gers with 40 points and one first-
place vote by the 24-man BBWA
selectioncommittee.
"I have to feel disappointed,"
said pitcher Tom Seaver of the
New York Mets after learning he
finished second in the balloting,
"this was the best year I have ever
pitched."
"I was more consistent than I
ever was," Seaver said. "I knew
Jenkins was the primary candi-
date with 24 wins but I thought
the voting would be closer." Seav-
er had six first-place votes and 61
points.
Five members of the Baseball
Writers Association of America
failed to pick Seaver on the first
three spots on ballot. "Nobody
knows how people vote and what
they are thinking about when
they cast their ballots," he said.
"I'm only 26 years old," he
added. "Maybe someday I could
put another one up on the wall."
Meanwhile, Downing of the
Dodgers and first baseman Norm
Cash of the Detroit Tigers were
named National and American
League comeback players of the
year by fellow players, the Sport-
ing News announced yesterday.

Okies, Huskers shake up stats;
Michigan defense rates kudos

By ROBERT HALVAKS
To no one's surprise, in most
of the nation's major team'statis-
tic departments this week one of
the nation's top three teams:
Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Michi-
gan; appears in the number one
spot.
Awesome second - ranked Ok-
lahoma (7-0), which is on its way
to destroying the all-time rushing
and total offense records for a
full season, is number one in those

departments as well as total
points, averaging 47 points per
game.
The Sooners are averaging
489.1 yards a game rushing, which
is well over the rushing record of
391 yards set by another Okla-
homa team in 1956.
Oklahoma is also averaging a
total offense per game of 578.9
yards, after its 711-yard perform-
ance against Kansas State last
week. This exceeds the present re-
cord average of 562 yards per
game set by Houston three years
ago.
Michigan is third in total points
with an average of 39.5 per game
and fifth in team rushing aver-
aging 328.1 yards.
Defensivelythe third-ranked
Wolverines are n u m b e r one
against the rush, giving up only
60 yards per game, and are also
number one in points yielded, al-
lowing its opponents slightly less
than five points per game.
Undefeated number-one ranked
Nebraska is on top in total de-
fense giving up an average of only
172 yards per game after eight
starts. The Huskers are followed
by Michigan, which has given its
opponents a grudging 179 yards,
per game.

Individually Ed Marinaro of
Cornell (6-0) is leaving all other
rushers choking in his dust as he
tops the rushing department with
a 216.3 yards per game average.
Marinaro's 15 touchdowns also
puts him out front in the individ-
ual point production race with 90.
Michigan's Bill Taylor is 15th
in individual rushing in the na-
tion averaging 115 yards per game.
Taylor's 11 touchdowns so far
this season puts him back in the
pack with 66 points. His two
touchdowns against Indiana push-
ed his career total to 30,VJust three
short of Tom Harmon's Michigan
record.
In the Big Ten, Michigan is on
top in all the team statistic de-
partments, with the exception of
passing offense and passing de-
fense, where they are tenth and
second respectively.
Sixth among the nation's place-
kicking specialists, Michigan's Da-
na Coin is a perfect 42 of 42 in
point conversions and is four of
nine in field goal attempts.
Michigan punter Barry Dotz-
auer, who is aiong the leaders in
the nation averaging 40 yards a
