Gopher spo
By The Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS--An indefinite probation against all men's
sports at the University of Minnesota-except basketball-has
been lifted by the NCAA, the school announced yesterday.,
The university basketball program remains on probation until
Oct. 28, 1978, the announcement said.
THE LIFTING of the probation was expected since the univer-
sity ended an impasse with the NCAA by declaring basketball
players Michael Thompson and Dave Winey ineligible.
The NCAA had contended that Thompson, the Big Ten Con-
ference scoring champion last season, had sold season tickets for
more than their face value and that Winey had accepted free
lodging at a lake home from a university booster.
The probation dates from the day University President C. Peter
Magrath informed the NCAA of the ineligibility action taken again-
st the two 6-foot-10 basketball players.
The basketball probation actually amounts to an increased
penalty and means the team will not be able to appear in post-season
tournaments next spring or on NCAA-sponsored television games
this season.

of recruiting violations which occurred under former Coach Bill
The announcement said the NCAA Committee on Infractions
discussed by telephone hookup yesterday the university's petition
for removal of the probation against all men's sports.
The NCAA subcommitee on eligibility appeals has not met to
consider the university's separate appeal to have the suspensions
of Thompson and Winey lifted.
The announcement said a decision on the two basketball players
was expected before Nov. 16, when the Gophers play the Cuban
BOTH THOMPSON and Winey are seniors. Thompson was one
of the top centers in the country last season when the Gophers com-
piled a 24-3 record. Winey has been used mainly as a reserve.
The university had contended that declaring the two players
ineligible was too harsh a penalty for the infractions.
Thompson passed up a million dollar offer to turn pro earlier
this year in favor of returning to Minnesota for his senior year, in 1
hopes of leading the Gophers to the national championship.
Paul Giel, university athletic director, said he was generally
"elated" with the NCAA decision to lift the indefinite probation.

"AT THE SAME time, I am obviously disappointed for what will
be a good basketball team this season not to be able to participate
in post-season play, providing it qualifies," Giel said.
"I believe the NCAA has been fair with the University of Min-
nesota," Giel added.

Badgers,'Jardine quits;
wili finish season first
By The Associated Press
MADISON, WIS.-John Jardine, whose teams have had just one winning
season in his nearly eight seasons as University of Wisconsin football coach,
resigned under the pressure of a four game losing streak yesterday.
JARDINE, 41, told a news conference after practice that he will finish
out the season. The Badgers play Iowa here Saturday and close their season
at Minnesota Nov. 19.
"MY JOB IS to finish this season," Jardine said. "I'm interested in a
smooth transition. After that, I'll never coach again. I've been coaching 20
years. I won't even coach the East-West game."
The Badgers won their first five games this year and moved into the top
20 in the ratings. However, they were unimpressive except for their 30-14 vic-
tory over Indiana in the opener.
They built the rest of their 5-0 record against weak sisters Northern
Illinois, Oregon, Northwestern and Illinois.
THEY HAVE lost their last four games to Michigan, Michigan State,
Ohio State and Purdue and have been outscored 129-7 in the process.
"I have nothing but super memories," a red-eyed, tired looking Jardine
said. "I'm not bitter because I understand what goes on. I've had 20 great
years. I'll remember the players most.
