Schembechler speaks about[S of the Daily
Super Game', bowl situation

DALLAS (P)-M i c h i g a n
Coach Bo Schembechler said
yesterday he isn't in favor of
a playoff for the national col-
lege football title but advocated
a "Super Game" between the
No. 1 and No. 2 teams after the
bowl games.
"T can't see a playoff starting
after the regular season ends in
November because it would
play havoc with final exams
and such," he said. "But I
could see a national title game
based on the results after the
bowls of the two highest ranked
teams say a week or 10 days
after Jan. 1.
"THAT way both teams
would still be in good condition
to play and it wouldn't interfere
with school work."

Schembechler was in Dallas
with Pittsburgh's Tony Dorsett,
Texas A&M's Ed Simonini,
Notre Dame's Ken MacAfee,
and UCLA's John Sciarra, and
Alabama's Alan Pizzitola on a
tour sponsored by the National
Collegiate Athletic Association
and ABC-TV which televises
college football.
S C H E M B E C H L E R
said there was great interest
in the bowl situation in the Big
Ten because "although it is not
yet official it's a foregone con-
clusion that both our conference
and the Pac 8 will allow any of
their teams to accept bowl bids
this year."
He said, "It's about time for
that rule. I think you can give
my team credit. We've only

lost two games in three years
and never played in a bowl.
We've been co-champs in the
Big Ten the last three years
and never got to the Rose-
Bowl."
The outspoken Michigan
coach said, "I can think of sev-
eral instances in the last sev-
eral years where we could have
perhaps won the national title if
we could have played in anoth-
er bowl game while Ohio State
was in Pasadena."
THE FINAL Associated Press
poll of broadcasters and sports
writers for the national cham-
pionship is taken after the bowl
games.
"The Big Ten rule without a
doubt cost us a shot at the na-
tional title and it's about time
they did away with it," Schem-
bechler added. "For example,
we'd love to come right down
here to the Cotton Bowl. That's
where Notre Dame got started
and the post-season bowls have
been a great thing for them."
IE SAID he looked for an-
other joust between Michigan
and Ohio State for the Big Ten
title this year with Wisconsin
and Michigan State moving up
fast.
'Our conference is getting
stronger over-all and I think
ths NCAA restrictions to 30
scholarships - which is what
we have had for years - will
make our league more com-
petitive with others who haven't
had those limitations," Schem-
bechler said.
On another topic, Schembech-
ler said the NCAA needed to
trim the length of time per-
mitted in the recruitment of
schoolboy prospects.
"That's one of the fatty parts
of college football and it has to
he trimmed," he said.

Royals' McKeon replaced
KANSAS CITY - Jack Mcieon was fired as manager of the
Kansas City Royals yesterday because of his ina'>ility to relate to
his players and was replaced by quiet-m-nered Whitcy Ilerzog.
Joe Burke, general manager of the Royals, made the an-
nouncement of the change in managers at a mid-day nows con-
ference and said he told McKeon at 3 a.m. yesterday os; the team's
retarn trip from Milwaukee he was being relic, ed.
McKeon did not attend the news conference and said from
his Kansas City home, "I think it would be best if I didn't say
anything more at the present time." He said earlier that he had
been relieved of a big burden and did the best job he could with
the team.
Musselman confirms
MINNEAPOLIS -- University of Minnesota basketball Coach
Bill Musselman confirmed yesterday that he was contacted by
investigators for the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
"Bill Hunt NCAA investigator talked with me," Musselman
said. "But I have not seen a list of the allegations."
"I can't comment on the allegations because I don't know
what they were or the severity of them," Musselman said. "They
are just allegations until they are proven."
Musselman confirmed that he admitted to the NCAA he was
guilty of what he called "minor, inconsequential" violations. 'I
went to bat for kids in serious personal trouble," he said. "My
conscience is clear."
Bell likes Wood
PHILADELPHIA - Willie Wood is expected to become pro-
fessional football's first black head coach Tuesday, when he is
named to lead the Philadelphia Bell of the World Football League.
A spokesman for the Bell told The Associated Press yesterday
that Wood, a former All-Pro safety with 'the Green Bay Packers
of the National Football League, is "the prime candidate" to suc-
ceed Ron Waller, who resigned Wednesday.

BO SCHEMBECHLER cracks a- smile during an interview
back in November shortly after Michigan's. loss to Ohio State
that left the Wolverines without a bowl game for the third
straight year. Bo spoke out yesterday in Dallas in favor of,
among other things, eliminating a fourth such similar oc-
curence.
