LOS ANGELES (P) - John
Wooden's silver anniversary season
at UCLA has been another pure
triumph on the basketball court,
yet the 61-year-old coach says it's
been anything but easy.
"1 havewparticularly enjoyed
the long winning streak," said
Wooden, named yesterday by The
Associated Press as collegerbas-
ketball's Coach of the Year for
the sixth time. "Nevertheless,
it's been a very trying year.
"My illness also entered into it,"
said Wooden, who was hospitalized
in December for what was describ-'
ed as a "mild heart .condition"-
not a heart attack.
"No," he said when asked if the
ailment would have any bearing on
when he would retire. When will
"I don't know. I've said all along
that I intend to coach at least one
more year, but that doesn't mean
it will be one more year. It might
be and it might not."
"I've curtailed none of the work
they didn't have this or that' but
any team that gets in there, whe-
ther it's UCLA or whatever, pro-
bably wouldn't be in there if they
didn't have a couple of players.
"That's always the case. When
you say, 'We'lt do well with Wal-
ton,' I say, 'yes.' Well, Ohio State
did well with Lucas, San Francisco
did well with Russell and Kentucky
did well with Groza."
"I think each succeeding year
I'm a better coach," says Wooden.
"I may not know anything more
from a technical standpoint but
each year I think I know more
about individuals and human na-
ture, and perhaps, in creating har-
mony among diverse groups. This

The common criticism of the
UCLA dynasty is that teams with
a Bill Walton or a Lew Alcindor
would find it difficult to lose.
However, Wooden's teams have
won with centers named McIn-

had guards named Hazzard and

Head football coach Bo Schem-
bechler confirmed yesterday that
reserve tight end C. J Kupec has
quit the football team in order to
be able to concentrate more fully
Kupec would have been locked in
a tight race with fellow junior
Greg DenBoer for the backup slot
behind starter Paul Seal. As a
sophomore, Kupec totaled enough
playing time in reserve and short-
yardage situations to win a letter.
In the practice polishing up play-
ing technique was emphasized and,
in the case of the offense, to goal
line situations. Playing against a
"scrub" defense, the Michigan of-
fense showed that its interior line
has quite a distance to go before
it will be able to be trusted in cru-
It is still too early.inthe season
for positional battles to develop.
"We're giving everyone a shot,"
Schembechler commented after the
practice. And, in fact, a good deal
of player - shuffling took place, to
the point where next year's sopho-
mores Gordon B'ell and Eduardo
Gonzales ran at halfback in some
sets with Dennis Franklin and the
first - string line.
Schembechler is running these
practices under the assumption
that the players he has on Ferry
Field right now are the only ones
who will be able to contribute to
Michigan football next season. Ask-
ed about the possibility of play-
ing freshmen next year (a la Ar-
chie Griffin) he allowed that there
was an outside chance for a fresh-
man to play as a wide receiver or
running back, but doubted very
much that freshmen would be able
t to crack the interior offensive line
or the defense.
