Frieder at Flint Northern)
wanted to go to Iowa. Not many
people know that. But they
(Iowa) sent their tender (the
document in which the univer-
sity agrees to pay the athlete's
expenses) the week of the semi-
finals. It had to be in the day
of the finals.
"I PROCEEDED to call Bill
Reed, who was dead -
they told me he was dead and I
asked for whoever was running
his office - and I told them off
about Iowa sending Britt a
tender during the state finals.
I would not let Britt sign that
tender. If something could be
worked out later, fine, but I
would not let him be thinking
about that.
"We tore that tender up. And
Iowa could not issue another
one to him. Then it came down
to Michigan and Michigan
State. I must admit I was par-
tial to Michigan - I'm a true
Blue - and I felt it would be a
better school for him."
Frieder's partiality for Mich-
igan has not diminished one
iota since coming here and to-
day he is sending those tenders
he once tore up. As is the case
with hard workers, his dili-
gence has been recognized.
"Frieder's done a fantastic
job," says Head coach John
arr. "He's energetic, devoted,
loyal, and really dedicated to
what he's doing here. And he's
honest. He's so honest it hurts."
