It was the same old story in
the Big Ten Swimming Champ-
ionships last weekend: too much
Indiana power.
For the eleventh year in a
row, the mighty, acquatic Hoos-
iers captured the Big Ten title
while Michigan finished second.
This year, however, the Wol-
verinesmargin over the third
place team, Ohio State, was a
little too close for comfort.
Head coach Gus Stager's tank-
ers nosed out the Buckeyes by
only 16 points, 325 to 309. In-
diana, meanwhile, made a sham-
bles of the first place struggle
as they amassed a record 601
points, almost twice t h a t of
For the first time in a num-
ber of years (eight to be exact)
Michigan was unable to win a
single one of the eighteen events
but did manage to pile up
enough seconds, thirds, and
fourths to squeeze into second
It didn't take long for In-
diana to show that they meant
After the first two events, the
Big Red had rolled to a 109-25
lead over Michigan and the-only
thing that Indiana head coach
James "Doc" Counsilman could
find to complain about was the

tact that his "times were too
In the opening event, the 500-
yard freestyle, John Kinsella,
Indiana's super freshman and
triple worldrecord holder, set
a new NCAA record of 4:31.20
clipping 2 seconds off his team-
mate, Mark Spitz's old mark.
The Hoosiers also grabbed sec-
ond and third as Santiego Es-
teva and Bill Baird outdistanc-
ed the pack. Michigan was con-
tent as Dan Fishburn and Ray
McCullough picked up points
for fifth and sixth places.
But it was the second event
where the Hoosiers power shone
Indiana picked up 69 out of a
possible 93 points in the 200-
yard Individual Medley as they
placed f i r s t, second, third,
fourth, fifth, and seventh out of
12 competitors.
Gary Hall, the 1970 swimmer
of the year, set a new meet rec-
ord as he nosed out Mike Stamm.
Last year's winner, Larry Bar-
biere, had to be content to place
In all, the Hoosiers won 14 of
the 18 events, one more than
they captured last year. T h e
only races where the Big Red
failed to triumph were the 100-
yard breastr6ke, the 100-yard
freestyle, and both the one and
three-meter diving events.

Michigan State's Jeff Lanini
was victorious in the 100-yard
breastroke as he narrowly nos-
ed out Peder Dahlberg of In-
diana by less than one second.
Reed Slevin of Ohio State turn-
ed t h e trick in the 100-yard
freestyle by nipping Indiana's
Gary Connelly at the finish.
In the three-meter diving,
Ohio State t o o k their second
first place as Mike Finnerman
outpointed Minnesota's Craig
Lincoln. The two reversed their
positions in the one-meter event.
The rest of the events were all
Indiana as John Kinsella, Gary
Hall, and Mark Spitz each had
three firsts.
Michigan's top finisher w a s
Byron MacDonald whorplaced
second behind Mark Spitz in the
200-yard butterfly. MacDonald's
time of 1:56.17 was quite re-
spectable but he still finished
well back of Spitz who set a iew
meet. Big Ten, NCAA, and
American record of 1:49.50.
In that s a m e event, Michi-.
gan's Larry D a y placed third
while Bob Gavin finished fifth.
MacDonald also took third in
the 100-yard butterfly while Day
was once again one place fur-
ther back.
The key to Michigan's weak
showing w a s their failure to

score well in the diving compe-
tition. The Wolverines have one
of the strongest diving squads in
the conference but, in the Big
Ten Meet, they failed to pro-
In the one-meter diving Mich-
igan was shut out as they failed
to qualify for the finals. Mean-
while, in the three-meter event,
Joe Crawford placed seventh
while Dick Rydze struggled in-
to ninth.
Michigan diving coach, Dick
Kimball expressed disappoint-
ment after the meet at his div-
ers performances. "It's just one
of those things," said Kimball.
"All year long, we've really been
diving pretty well. But (at the
Big Tens) nothing seemed to be
going right."
After their mediocre showing
in the Big Tens, it would seem
that the tankers will have to re-
gain their consistency of earlier
in the year if they are to im-
prove on last year's sixth place
finish in the NCAA's.
Hoosier power!

Ai's not the greatest ...
because he's not the smartest
WHEN MUHAMMAD ALI flunked the army intelligence test a
few years ago he said, "I always claimed I was the greatest,
not the smartest." The second half of the statement was proved
again Monday night in the remarkable and thrilling fight be-
tween him and Joe Frazier.
The fabled confrontation between the boxer and the slugger
never came about because Ali decided to fight Frazier's fight.
He seemed to want to show that he could do everything, that
he could take any punch Frazier could throw and that he was
such a great fighter that he could even do better than Frazier
at what Frazier does best.
Ali failed, but he almost succeeded, and the feeling has
to be that had he fought in his usual style he might have
easily won the fight.
Who would have thought that Ali would come out at the
start of the fight flat-footed, and, even more amazing, that he
would win the first few rounds of the bout in his altered style?
Certainly Frazier didn't, and the spectacle they provided in the
middle rounds of the match was one of the most fantastic in
all of sports.
Repeatedly, Ali would let Frazier corner him against the
ropes, Ali's arms covering his midsection and the smaller Fraz-
ier, his head down, pummeling his opponent's body. Ali would
shake his head, indicating, not always convincingly, that the
blows were doing no damage, and then, taunting his foe, he
would shake his fist in Frazier's face.
Frazier was so disgusted at Ali's refusal to do anything
but stand and take punches that in round eight he grabbed
Ali, still standing against the ropes, and threw him into
the center of the ring.
"If I knew that by playing with him like I did I would lose
those rounds," Ali said yesterday, "then I wouldn't have done it."
Ali actually, although losing his fight with his stand still
tactics in the middle and late rounds, proved what he set out
to - that he could take everything Frazier had to give. He was
rocked by a left hook in the eleventh round, but Frazier was un-
able to finish him off, when it looked like a strong breeze was
enough to do the trick.
Then in the opening seconds of the last round, when a
classic left hook sent Ali flat on his back, Frazier was un-
able to land even a decent punch for the rest of the way.
No dispute is made here about the decision favoring Frazier,
but there were ringside observers who felt that on a rounds
basis, Ali should have been given the decision, or at least a
draw. Certainly Judge Bill Recht, who scored it 11 rounds for
Frazier, must have had his mind in the next county.
New York judges have a reputation for giving points for
aggressiveness, and Ali probably was penalized for his passive
style. But the fifth round, in which Frazier let Ali carry the
fight, almost conceding it to his opponent, was given by two of
the officials to Frazier.
It would have been nice for the fight to end by a knockout
- a champiohship should be won with the fists, not with an
officials pen - but, both men were able to accept an extra-
ordinary amount of punishment and still go on.
Ali suffered a blood clot in his chin and spent the night in
the hospital. Frazier's head was misshapen after the fight, and
his face resembled raw hamburger. In fact, closed circuit an-
nouncer Don Dunphy was unable to interview him because, he
said, "Frazier is sick in his corner."
Yesterday, Frazier's face was so misshapen, according
to his handler Yank Durham, that he refused to meet with
Still, it was an incredible fight between two incredible per-
formers, and a well deserved victory by Frazier. But if Ali re-
verts to his old style, he may be able to complete his long sought
ring comback.
Ali wants a rematch, but he may not get the chance. Dur-
ham said he wants Frazier to retire. "Joe looked at me," Dur-
ham reported yesterday, "and said 'You don't have to tell me
twice. I always do what you tell me, Yank.' "
