What does Big Ten football,
hold in the way of excitement
for 1974? In the past few years
it has come to mean an Ohio
State-Michigan game in the cli-
max of the league schedule.
However, there may be foot-
ball revivals occuring on other
Big Ten campuses this year
which could add an element of:
surprise to the picture. Satur-
day's opening action short-
circuited some experts' opinions
as to how the Big Ten would
shape up, and while the season
is still very young, there are
indications that the "Little
Eight" may offer tougher com-
petition to the "Big Two."
One of the biggest surprises
was the 19 points that the
vaunted Ohio State defense
gave up to the Minnesota
Gophers. While Gopher coach
Cal Stoll may be building his
team around a "never quit"
philosophy, there must have
been more to the Gopher of-
fense than spirit alone.
Down 28-3 in the third quarter,
an instant replay of last year's
56-7 debacle between these same
teams loomed large in the minds
of Minnesota mentors. One Min-
nesota spokesman had this to
say: "When OSU scored that
fourth major, we were very
doubtful as to whethereornot
we could make a game of it.

Wisconsin soundly thrashed
Purdue 28-14 in a game which1
both coaches called a comedy of
errors. Badger coach John Jar-
dine had more to laugh about,'
however, as his team capitalized
on Purdue miscues. The Badgers
opened up a 21-0 lead going
into the third quarter, before
the Boilermakers could strike
back.
The main strength behind the
Wisconsin victory turned out to
be substitute tailback Ron Pol-
lard, who played instead of in-
jured star Bill Marek. Pollard
scored twice in the third quar-
ter, and rushed for 72 yards.
Next week, Wisconsin begins
a very tough schedule. They
play Nebraska on regional tele-
vision, followed by Colorado,
Missouri, Ohio State, and Michi-
gan. It may be tough sailing
through that stretch.

Phillips and a 40 yard pass to
Frank Johnson from Jim Ko-
patz. Phillips and Kopatz were
the keys to victory, and may

make Illinois a team to reckon
with this year. Indiana, on the
other hand, has started off con-
ference play where they left off
last year. In 1973 the Hoosiers
lost all eight conference games.

The 'Fox' becomes an Oriole
BALTIMORE-The Baltimore Orioles have purchased the con-r
tract of veteran outfielder Jim Northrup from the Montreal Expost
in a straight cash deal, the American League team announced
yesterday.
Northrup will join the Orioles in New York today.
The 34-year-old Michigan native spent his entire profes-
sional career with the Detroit Tigers, including 9 seasons
with the parent club until they dealt him to the Expos. Atr
Montreal, he appeared in 21 games and batted .241.
A .267 lifetime hitter, Northrup has walloped 147 careert
homers including eight grand slams in the regular season, and
one in the 1968 World Series.
Bob Foster hanrs 'em u,
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - World light-heavyweight boxing
champ Bob Foster, 34, retired yesterday after 13 successful title
defenses, saying he doesn't want to battle the world sanctioning
bodies.
"It's time to retire, I guess," Foster said. "I still think I can
lic kany light-heavyweight in the world, but it's too much of a
mental thing to fight the World Boxing Association and the World{
Boxing Council, too."
Foster, a sergeant in the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, said boxing "has been a great life for me. I will keep
close to the ring. I always will. But I intend to stay in law
enforcement work for a long while . ."
Foster leaves the ring as the unbeaten chamipon, eclipsing
Archie Moore's recor dof 11 successful title defenses.
Foster is the first to chalk up an unbeaten record against
light-heavyweights-48 in the pro ranks and 102 in the amateur
