Brooks Robinson and tied t h e

Jim Northrup singled home a

The Big Ten rugby tournament
starts this morning in Columbus,
Ohio, and Seven Big Ten schools,
all except Minnesota, Northwest-
ern, and Iowa, will participate.
In the first round, Michigan will
square off against Michigan State.
Ohio State, originally scheduled
to play Iowa, will play the Mich-
igan "B" squad. Iowa informed
the tournament on Thursday that
they couldn't make it.
In effect, OSU is drawing a
bye, even if the "B" team wins,
they are ineligible for further
tournament play. OSU drew a
similar bye in 1969 when their first
opponent couldn't come. Several
sources have claimed that OSU
allegedly knew that Iowa wasn't
coming during the selections for
the first round, purposely getting
a bye.

The inability of the Lakers to

Rick Cornfeld
Martin: 'I'm not c-ocky-
just brilliant'
IN CASE ANYBODY is still so foolish enough to think that Billy
Martin is a brasp, cocky man, the new manager of the Tigers
is more than willing to make a correction.
"When people introduce me," Martin said at a Tiger Press
Day the other morning, "they call me the brash and cocky Billy
Martin. When they introduce Bobby Richardson," he said, refer-
ring to his soft-spoken successor at second base with the Yankees,
"they talk about his World Series exploits. Well, I've got more
than he does."
Brash? Cocky? Maybe just honest. "I'm aggressive,"
Martin admitted. "As a player I led by my actions on the
field. It takes hard work to be aggressive, but you gotta be
honest with yourself about your strong and weak points.
Everybody has weak points. Only' one man didn't, and they
crucified him. His name was Jesus Christ."
Martin, who has been manager now for barely half a year,
has transformed the Tigers into a team that is barely recogniz-
able. Al Kaline said it is the most aggressive, hardest-working
team he has ever played on, and other observers close to the club
This is Martin's second time in a Tiger uniform. As a self-
proclaimed non-brash, non-cocky, ex-World Series hero, Martin
covered shortstop with more-or-less success in 1958.
Then as now he was supposed to come in and fire up a
lethargic Bengal nine. "When I came here the first time,"
Martin said, "I was billed as a holler guy, a spark plg. You
can only do so much sparking, you gotta have a motor to
work with. We didn't have that kind of ball club."
Many people thought the Tigers still don't, but Martin, with
the aid of such speed demons as Kaline and Willie Horton, have
set about proving them wrong. In last Tuesday's season opener,
both Horton and Kaline were sent on hit-and-run plays and both
were thrown out stealing.
Does Martin think that sending Kaline and Horton running
was a smart move? "I thought it was brilliant," he equivocated.
"This was a hit and run. You gotta know the situation and who's
pitching and what kind of pitches he's throwing. We're gonna get
caught on hit-and-runs. We're gonna get caught on steals. But this
game is one of percentages.
"You gotta force the opposition into making mistakes,
and they're doing that. For once, they're making fools of the
opposition. And that's when baseball is fun.
"Look," he added, "when Northrup was on third base and he
was dancing up and down, what happened? He forced the pitcher
into making a balk. And he had balked once before, too, when
the umpire didn't catch it. You gotta take those chances. You
gotta bunt and hit and run. You gotta take the concentration away
from the pitcher."
Martin has been talking like that for a long time, all his
baseball life. But so far, he has been able to live up to his own
advance billing. An effective minor league manager at Denver,
he moved up to the parent Minnesota club in 1969 and led the'
Twins to a divisional title before being fired because of front
office resentment.
This is his second chance, and he has been planning his
overhaul of the Tigers' style of play all year. "In the winter,"
he said, "you just talk about how you're gonna do things, but
in the spring you gotta execute. They made mistakes, the
young kids especially. But they started to get things down.
I'm very much happy with the way they were doing things.
The important thing is they want to do it right."
A fiery guy, Martin is famous for carrying on feuds with
other baseball figures. One is reportedly with Oriole manager
Earl Weaver, but Martin denied it. He's a good man and a great
manager," Martin said. "He just does things out there that I
don't like. I'll tell that to his face. What's the difference? I do
things that he doesn't like."
Martin paused, then added, "I don't like that he's got all
those good players."
Another famous feud is with pitcher Dave Boswell, for-
merly a 20-game winner under Martin with the Twins and now
back with him on the Tigers. For perhaps the 1000th time,
Martin explained what happened that August night two years
ago outside the Lindell AC bar in Detroit.
"He didn't run his laps in practice one day. I was told about
it by the pitching coach. I saw him in the bar and told him I
wanted to see him about it the next day. He got mad at the pitch-
ing coach, but I told him that was the coach's job and if he hadn't
told me, he'd be fired. Bob Allison tried to talk to him about it

COLUMBUS - Michigan's links-
men are a disappointing eighth at
the halfway point of the Kepler
Invitational golf tourney in Co-
lumbus, Ohio. Playing 27 holes
yesterday, the best Michigan could
muster was a 609 total which left
them 29 strokes behind first place
Michigan State. Michigan's low
scorers were Neal Spitalny a n d
Gary Bailliat who both checked in
with 11 over par 119's. Rocky Poz-
za was only a stroke behind at
120 but the remaining Wolverines
finished further back with Dan
Hunter at 125, John Roska at
126 and Chuck Murnham at 128.

there, the squad w i ll be again

the depth of a team in many
events is often more important
than the presence of one or two
star performers.
Michigan has an abundance of
depth in both the 880-yard and
mile runs, which will greatly help
their two-mile and four-mile re-
lays. Their 440-yard and mile re-
lay units are also better than
average and could place in most of
the meets this spring.
After all of these relays, the
Michigan team returns to dual

Casey looks sharp
in football practice

Courtmen stunned by
Illinois, defeated 6-3

Michigan's first football game
is still five months and two days
away, but the high-powered Wol-
verines were in midseason form
yesterday as the first stringers
trounced the second team 35-0 in
a full scale scrimmage in t h e
Freshman quarterback Kevin
Casey appears the man to beat for
the slot vacated by Don Moor-
head as he led Michigan's starting
offense to paydirt five of six times.
On the first strings' opening drive,
Casoy twice picked up sizable
yardage on what appeared to be
a busted play. After scrambling 20
yards down to the 23, Casey hit
fullback Fritz Seyferth with an
18 yard pass. Then, after an eight
yard scoring toss to Seyferth was
nullified by a holding penalty,
Casey again prevented disaster by
running out of trouble and pick-
ing up eight yards to the seven.
From there Alan "Cowboy" Walker
took it in on a sweep. Dana
Coin kicked this, as well as the
second extra point.
The second touchdown was set
up by wingback Glenn Doughty
who has shown flashes of hip
sophomore brilliance all spring
Following a ten yard jaunt by
Walker, Doughty, who has added
some ten pounds to his frame this
year, took off from his own 41
on a run up, the middle, and
breaking tackles all over the field,
went 51 yards to the seven. Sey-
ferth plunged in for the touch-
Then after the first string de-
fense throttled the second string
offense for the third time, Casey
and Doughty collaborated on a
pass over the middle which t h e
wingback went 44 yards with be-
fore being halted at the two. Big
Ed Shuttlesworth, a 241 pound
fullback, took it in from there.

Special To The Daily
CHAMPAIGN - Michigan's
courtmen suffered a shocking 6-3
loss yesterday to surprising Illinois
in the opening match of their
Big Ten season. The Wolverines
had trouble with the erratic wind
currents and were unable to play
up to their usual standards as
they lost five of six singles
Coach Brian Eisner said the
wind was the critical factor, "it
was a question of which team
would adjust best. We didn't." He
added that "Illinois was used to
playing on their courts and we
weren't." This was also Michigan's
first outdoor match of the year.
"We beat them two weeks ago"
(in the Irish Invitational), Eisner
said, "and we knew this would be
a difficult match."
Only in the doubles were the
Wolverines able to do well as they
won two of the three matchups.
Of the six singles, however, only
Ramon Almonte was able to
emerge victorious for Michigan,
Almontevdefeated Kevin Morrey
7-5, 6-4.
The rest of the singles belonged
to Illinois. Number one Michigan
seed Joel Ross went down to Rick
Wack 6-4, 6-3. Rod Schroeder

smothered Tim Ott 6-0, 6-4, and
Chip Clements made short work
of Dick Raverby 6-2, 6-3.
Kevin Senich lost to Berry
Maxwell 6-1, 6-4 and to complete
the rout, Miles Harris knocked off
Mike Ware 7-5, 6-0.
In doubles competition Ott and
Ware defeated Morrey and Cle-
ments 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, while Almonte
and Senich upended Harris and
Maxwell 6-3, 3-6, 6-4. The final
match saw Raverby and Ross de-
feated by Schroeder and Wack
5-7, 6-3, 6-4.

slot but injured his leg almost
immediately. Doughty meanwhile
continued his one man vendetta
against the defense as he picked
up 21 yards straight up the mid-
dle. For once, however, the first
string could not take it in.
It took only a few plays for the
first string to get the ball back
and this time they garnered the
score the hard way, picking up 3-
4-5 yards a carry with Shuttles-
worth, Doughty and Walker each
lugging the football.
The second string now, with
freshman halfback Don Cole-
man doing much of the carrying,
penetrated into opposition terri-
tory but were stopped on downs
at the 41. From there the first
string took over and worked it
down to the four before C a s e y
was thrown for a 16 yard loss
ending the threat.
Shortly thereafter, Walker thril-
led those in attendance with a
spinning, weaving run in which
he broke four tackles and went
twenty yards to the five. Doughty
then plunged over from the one.
Greg Koss took over the se-
cond string offense at this point
and started picking apart the de-
fense with pinpoint passing. He
did not have the time that Casey
was getting, however, and was un-
able to sustain a drive.
The gridders will break for East-
er and will finish their spring
practicing with an open scrim-
mage a week from today in the
1 P.M.-Mid.
