It is widely assumed among non-
athletic circles that football play-
ers spend their off season time
studying, drinking, and chasing
women. This is not entirely true.
daFor an hour or more every Mon-
day, Wednesday, and Friday, the
members of the football team
trudge down to the football training
facilities to engage in winter con-
ditioning. Highlighting drillsbfor
the gridders this wnter have been
a set of new conditioning ma-
chines.
The Nautilus weight condition-
ing program consists of a set of
sevenmachines, each designed
to tone a particular muscle or
Smuscle group. As such, the ma-
chines vary in design, but they
all basically consist of a frame-
work supporting a set of weights
chains, and pulleys, with a plat-
form for the man using them.
In the Michigan program, a man
raises an unspecified weight as
many times as he is able on each
machine, and has a total of thirty
minutes to cover all seven ma-
chines.
"The big reason we run this pro-
gram is to get the plavers in shape'
for spring practice. If they are in
shape, they won't have as many
injuries," explained assistant coach
Gary Moeller who, along with
other coaches, run the program.
The main objectives of this
activity are to strengthen mus-
cles and improve flexibility of
movement," Moeller claims. "It
is designed to strengthen the
muscles at every possible point.
And if it'sedone correctly, it
helps improve cardio-vascular
circulation. We want to break
down as much muscle fiber as
possible."
"And not only for football play-
ers. We've got lacrosse players in
here, too. This program is open to
anybody."
It would take a dedicated per-
son to endure the ritual, however.

and is packed in so that his chest
does not move. He then lifts the
weights by either pushing a set
of bars forward, or pressing
another set back with his elbows.
The last three machines con-
centrate on the leg muscles and
the hamstrings. On machine seven
a man lies on his stomach and
lifts the weights by bending his
knees.
After their bout with the Nau-
tilus machines, the football players
transfer to another room for a
series of reflex drills, which are
the same as those done before
games, but on a smaller scale. A
passerby can hear shouts of "You
don't roll over, you flip over," and
groans of agony emanating from
the drills.
The gridders rip through the

Ned "Nikita" Nautilus
Inventor of Weight
Machine
The machines look like the result
of an unnatural union between Vic
Tanny and Thomas of Torquema-
da. And thirty minutes on them is
enough for most of the football
players.
"They make you use every mus-
cle in your body," groaned one ath-
lete after a session on the ma-
chines.
The first of the machines is bas-
ically an adjustable seat with the
weights positioned behind and the
pulleys on top. A person strapped
in this contraption can do two
things. He can lift the weights by
pulling down on a bar suspended
above his head, or he can lift them
by pressing down with his elbows
on a horizantal bar.
The second, third, and fourth
machines are likewise concern-
ed with the toning of the mus-
cles of the arms and the upper
torso. On machine three, the
victim steps into the machine

North Carolina State
leads tough ACpace
By MICHAEL WILSON
This is the time of year when conference races move into
their final, climactic stages with the winners going off to play in
the NCAA tournament. But before they do so, most of them have
to fight their way through some very tough conference struggles.
Such is the case in the Atlantic Coast Conference, perhaps
the most powerful basketball conference in the nation. The ACC
contains three teams in the top ten of the AP cage ratings. North
Carolina State is second, North Carolina is fourth, and Maryland
currently owns the number seven spot. With little more than a
month remaining in the schedule, these three teams are in the
thick of the fighting for the conference crown.
NORTH CAROLINA S T A T E,:::.>:r>.... >r;..
currently on top with a spotless
7-0 record, also has the best look- ATLANTIC COAST
ing schedule of the three teams. CONFERENCE

drills in groups of seven or eight.
Gro ips keep going through from
11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
While it cannot be truthfully
said th-t the football players en-
joy the drills, most seem to feel
them necess =;ry, and there are
no compl ints heard in the halls
of Bo's palace.
"I think this program is A-
OK," claimed Larry "Doctor B"
Banks, a senior defensive end.
"But I really don't care for those
reflex drills. They were all right
the first day, a little harder the
second, and they have been get-
tong worse since.
"But it's all going to be worth-
while on the last day of the sea-
son." If any of you have forgot-
ten, the last game of the regular
season will be held in Columbus.

maining on State's schedule, N. Carolina St. 7 0
three will be played at home in N. Carolina 7 1
Raleigh. These include Wake For-M
est, Duke and North Carolina.
The only real tough game on the road for Coach Norman
Sloan's team is when they must travel to Clemson on February
23. "Clemson has always given us trouble in the past." an as-
sistant said.
Only a half-game away in second place is North Carolina,
owning a 7-1 record. Its only loss came at the hands of North
Carolina State. However, this team faces the roughest schedule
of all. It must play Maryland in College Park February 13, and
North Carolina State on February 26. North Carolina will play
host to Virginia February 23 and close the season with Duke
March 2.
THREE GAMES back but still in the picture is Maryland,
currently with a 4-3 conference record. Maryland assistant coach
Howard White, states that, "the team who has the home court
advantage will have the best chance. The schedule is really
about the same. I think our biggest game will be on February
13 when we play North Carolina at home. If we win, this game
will get us that bye in the tournament."
Maryland plays host to North Carolina on February 13,
travels to Clemson February 16, and to Duke University on
February 23.
