Michigan might be sitting undefeated and on top of the--
polls but the rest of the Big Ten has fared pretty well in -
non-conference action also.
"I look for an exciting Big Ten race," Frieder said.
"Woo, you can say that again," Orr added.
"It should 'be a typical Big Ten season," Frieder add-
ed. "Indiana will improve and Michigan State is the only
team that hasn't performed well."
The Minnesota Gophers have gotten off to a quick 4-0 start
including victories over Detroit and Nebraska.-X
"As long as their ineligibles are eligible, they are going
to be tough," Orr said with a chuckle. "fleck, (Michael) Thomp-
son, (JRay) Williams, (Dave) Winey, (Flip) Saunders and (Os-
borne) Lockhart are back - and that was a. good U of D
team they beat."
Purdue and Indiana, pre-season choices as other prime con-
tenders for the Big Ten title, have both lost two games al-TO
ready this year.
"Purdue is coming on strong now," Orr said. "They won
at Providence - and that's a heckuva team."
"It is only a matter of time for Purdue," he added.
"I would be surprised if they lose another non-conference
game, and they still have to play Louisville and Arizona."
The 'defending national champions of Indiana have lost two
in a row but Orr expects a lot from them as the season wears
"Indiana is getting organized. Don't think they won't be
good when the Big Ten games. start," Orr said. "You know,
Indiana doesn't play any patsies either - except for their
