Hardship rule eased
for Big Ten athletes

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-The Big Ten hard-
ship rule for football players
was eased Wednesday to allow
an athlete injured before the
third game of the season to
have an extra year of eligibility.
The rule, altered at the Big
Ten spring meeting, previously
allowed a player another year
only if he was hurt in the first
game of the season.
Wayne Duke, Big Ten com-
missioner, noted that the old
rule was adopted when confer-
ence teams played only seven
or eight games. Most now play
11 a season.
Conference members a 1 s o
voted to return to two-man offi-
ciating crews next season. The
Big Ten went to three-man
crews in 1967, but coaches have
been complaining that too many
penalties are being called.

dure in case of a three-way tie
also was revised.
A coin flip will determine
which two of the three teams
will meet in the opening round
of the playoffs to determine

which school will represent the
league at the NCAA tourney.
The winner of that match meets
the third team for the right to
compete in the tourney.
Previously the team that last
represented the Big Ten in the
tournament was automatically
In other actions, the Big Ten
approved a trip to Japan in July
for the Wisconsin basketball
team and agreed to allow the
Ohio State gymnastics team to
compete in Ge rm a ny next
