WILDCATS HERE MONDAY
By JEFF SCHILLER
Eleven weeks ago, the Ohio
State football team strode into
Ann Arbor, unbeaten, untied,
top - ranked and fighting for
possession of the Big Ten and
national championships. Today
the Buckeye basketball team
stumbles into town, for a spe-
cial 1:00 p.m. contest, with a
1-6 conference mark, occupying
the Big Ten cellar, and fighting
for "nothing but pride."
But if Buckeye fans can be ex-

and the hoopsters cannot afford
any letdowns against the weaker
teams like OSU if they are to
cop the crown.
The Wolverines should have no
trouble getting "up" for th'e con-
test. If the traditional Michigan-

reminds the squad of the result
of last year's final game when
the Bucks humiliated the Blue

Michigan's track team travels to East Lansing today to com-
pete'in the MSU relays. Teams will be coming from throughout
the region to make up, what Coach Dixon Farmer calls "the
best relays meet in the Midwest."
The highlighted events will be the 600-yard run, expected to
be a battle between MSU's Bob Cassleman, Eastern Michigan's
Stan Vinson and the Wolverine's Dave Williams, and the 60-yard
dash, featuring Olympic gold medal winner Gerald. Tinker of

Bears ink M' stars
The Chicago Bears took a long step toward bolstering their
sagging football fortunes on Thursday by announcing the signing
of two 1973 Michigan football stars, All-American defensive
tackle Dave Gallagher and offensive guard Mike Hoban. Gal-
lagher, the Bears' second pick in the first draft round was also
tabbed by Boston of the fledgling World Football League, but
Dave chose the Bears because "the Chicago people and their
offer were so good."
Hoban was not drafted by an NFL club, but signed with the
Bill Andreas (6-7,14.7)
Steve Wenner (6-6,9.8)
Craig Taylor (6-10,2.3)
Gary Repella (6-3,8.0)
Larry Bolden (6-0,12.3)
Bill Frieder, Jim Dutcher and
Johnny Orr talk, you'd think
that today's opponent is the most
underrated team around.
"Ohio State is not nearly as
bad as their record indicates,"
Frieder commented. "They took
Notre Dame, the number three
team in the nation, to overtime
before losingtby four. And
they've lost to Wisconsin by
four, and Purdue by only two -
in fact they should have beaten
Purdue! We'll have to play well
to beat them."
It may be tougher however,
for Coach Fred Taylor to moti-
vate his Buckeye squad. OSU,
originally regarded as a dark-
horse in the Big Ten picture has
dropped six of its last eight con-
tests, the last two to conference
tailenders Northwestern and

that the Buckeyes have internal
troubles as well. Taylor benched

play has been a definite disap-
pointment this season, he is none-
the less the team's second lead-

OSU's major troubles of late
have been lack of rebounding
and a failure to penetrate offen-
sively. In fact the Ohio State

ed almost exclusively to 6'-7"
center - forward Bill Andreas
(6.5 reb. 14.7 p.).
"We have to have Billy in
there. Without him we don't
have any inside attack at all,

lor's words .Outside of An-

WHAT has kept OSU in ball-
games throughout the year has
been their ability to shoot the
basketball. Andreas (.530) and
6-3 senior guard Gary Repella
(.517) both convert better than
half their attempts, and 6-0

connects better than 45 per cent
