. a year later

- ---Bill Alterman .:
Nobody ever said life wasn't a struggle.
Some people give up and simply wait for death to make it of-
ficial. Others seek victory with the aid of a gun.
Bill Taylor struck with the only weapon he had-his pride.
For three years Taylor was the hero of Ann Arbor. Twice the tail-
back from Barberton, Ohio led the Wolverines to the Rose Bowl and
broke the all-time Michigan rushing record in the process. Though
drafted a relatively low fifth by the Atlanta Falcons, B. T. believed
he had an excellent chance of making the pros. But something stood
in the way; the Falcons say it was his athletic ability, Taylor thinks
it was something personal, intensely personal.
Two weeks ago Taylor, now playing for the Calgary Stampeders
in the Canadian Football League, finally let it all out:
"He's a racist," Taylor said referring to Atlanta coach and general
manager Norm Van Brocklin. "Speaking for my race, Van Brocklin
is setting us back 100 years."
But nobody seemed too upset at Taylor's charges, least of all
Wilt Browning, Atlanta's PR man who replied, "Taylor is dis-
gruntled because he was a very fine college player and hasn't
been able to make it in the pros. This is very common."
Taylor knew the reaction his outspokehness would bring but went
ahead anyway;
"I figured it (the story) would come out like sour grapes but I'm
not going to be concerned 'about things like that anymore. I've been
misused a few times and I've been discriminated against. I lost my
mother last January and I went through a lot of changes since then.
It's just not worth it being somebody other than myself and that is
just what I was doing, going out of my way to avoid confrontation
at Atlanta.
"But I just had to get it off my back and clear the air.
"I'm bitter against Atlanta. I felt I wasn't released on my footballf
ability, I was released because they were trying to make me into
another person. I was supposed to kiss Van Brocklin all over and I
won't kiss anybody all over. This is what he concentrated on.
r "It was 'Yes sir' this and 'No sir' that and he'd cuss you out in
front of everybody during practice. Afterwards he'd pat you on the
back and you would say 'Yes sir' and 'No sir' to him. I didn't but a

BillyTaylor's happier days


Gridde Pickinigs
Remember those days of yesteryear when the Super Kiss, as they
called Henry, was the darling of his Poca Poca Teacher College
Campus. Not only were his sweet cheeks loved by every prospective
geography teacher, but he was the number one swift winged receiver
for the Poca Poca Puckers.
01' number 88, or the dart as they called him on the field, caught
more passes than anyone else in the history of the Puny Seven Con-
ference. And what's more he threw a few passes in his time-mostly
along the sidelines near those beautiful Pucker Poopsies cheering
their team onto victory.
The Dart was Poca Coach Pistol "Paris" Pollack's prize player
and he used him extensively to shuttle in those secret plays and
devious counters.
The Kiss remembers these days well and owes his present day
expertise mainly to "Paris's" faith and trust and the experience
gained as signal caller and messenger for that top notch football
machine. The Kiss recounted, "Boy were those days the 'good ol'
days.' Our Athletic Director, Dick Tricky made it all happen by in-
creasing the football budget tenfold. We don't know where he got all
that dough, but some people have said it came from some special
alumni groups. And then he got that new eligibility rule so that we
All-Americans could have four more years. What a man! And remem-
ber thosetMr. Pizza pizzas? Mmm Good."
"By the way, this is my good friend and companion, Delores."

by Michigan head coach Bo Schembechler and Athletic Director
Don Canham.
Canham and Schembechler both called the story "a complete fab-
rication." And indeed Michigan probably has the most academically
oriented athletic- department of any major college football power.j
Michigan is consistently one of the few universities to graduate all or
nearly all of its athletes in four years. And one of the first things an
athlete is told upon entering Michigan is that academics is primary.
So perhaps the dichotomy between winning and learning is not irrecon-
ciliable. Let's hope so.{
In any event Billy Taylor, who will be back in Ann Arbor next
semester working towards his masters degree, seems to have finally
found peace of mind:
"Calgary looks good. The coaches like me, the fans like me, I could
