Johnny loosens up.. .
. for the big one tonight
WASN'T REALLY SURE I was in Alabama until I got to the
Holiday. Inn last night for the press dinner and the first
speaker was none other than Paul "Bear" Bryant. The Bear
didn't discuss off-tackle plays and he was very careful not to
mention that certain school in South Bend, Indiana that took
the national championship away from 'Bama not so long ago.
However, Bear did roll out the welcome mat. "I welcome
y'awl down to Tuscaloosa an' anythin' we heuh in Alabama can
do to make your stay more comfortable, we'll be glad to do."
Down here In the heart of Dixie, basketball - especially
of the NCAA tournament variety - is no longer something a
bunch of guys do In between the fall football season and
spring practice. Alabama's fine basketball coach, C. M. New-
ton, has put the Tide on the basketball map with two straight
20-victory seasons and a share of the SEC title with Vander-
bilt this year.
Rebel yells will resound at beautiful Memorial Coliseum to-
night, and since Notre Dame will be Michigan's opponent in this
evening's 8:05 starter, the Wolverines may have a few sup-
porters here. Actually, residents that drive down Lurleen B.
Wallace Way or mosey on down from Birmingham have no
great love for the state of Michigan, Campy Russell, or the Ann
Arbor dope laws, but Michigan did not beat them in the Sugar
Bowl and Notre Dame did.
Folks down here hold grudges - just look at the Civil War.
Although Marquette coach Al McGuire is renowned
for his sparkling wit at the lecturn, Michigan's Johnny Orr
stole the show at dinner here last night. Smiling and laugh-
ing like a kid who just got a new toy, Orr had good-natured
barbs for almost everyone in the room.
To the delight of the media and coaches present, Orr related
some stories about Michigan athletic director Don Canham, who
(incidentally) was in the room.
"I just 'got my contract renewed by Canham - from thirty
days to another year," quipped Johnny. When the laughter sub-
sided, he added, "Hell, with Canham, that's tenure!"
Orr also told about the problems he and the Michigan
entourage were having finding room accommodations here
as late as Tuesday morning. "Well, when we called up the
Holiday Inn the other day, and asked about Michigan ac-
commodations, the girl at the desk replied 'Y'all must have
some mistake -- Indiana's going to stay here!",
The Wolverines, not the Hoosiers, are indeed in town, and
although' no one here can quite believe it yet, they are playing
tonight for the right to meet either Marquette or Vanderbilt in
the national quarter-finals on Saturday.
Notre Dame is a great team and deserves every bit of its
third-place ranking in the national polls. The Irish are strong all
over, especially in the middle with All-American John Shumate.
"Big Shu," a 6-9 240-pound slab of granite, is the man Michigan
must stop in order to upset the Fighting Irish.
Michigan State nearly toppled Notre Dame last month
in East Lansing, and the only reason they came that close
was that Shumate was'held to four points in the second half
and his muscular board work was limited.
This year's Mid-East regional is, as usual, the strongest of
the four across the nation, and the team that emerges Saturday
will most likely face either UCLA or North Carolina State in
