More penalties for MSU
By The Associated Pres
EAST LA1NSING - Michigan tate
University has lost a key defensive back
for the entire 1976 football season and its
starting tight end for five games und:er
peQalties imposed yesterday by the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Associati ct.
Five other players, including a -'ar
defensive tackle, were told rey w)nid
have to sit out the first gamne of the
season - against Big Ten champion
Ohio State, where the Spartans will need
all the talent they can field.
THE NCAA barred starting defen.sive
back Joe Hunt for the season for involve-
ment in violations in MSU's football
program. Tight end Mike Cobb, a senior
this fall, was ruled ineligible for the
first five games.
Hunt's ineligibility means an end to
his collegiate athletic career, according
Hunt out for season.
to Dr. John Fuzak, MSU's athletic coun-
cil chairtuin. The quick, aggressive back
was part of a defensive quartet which
h-is been the strong point of MSU football
far twc years.
Bit the Spartans have depth in the
defensive backfield. One of those ruled
out of one game this year is Ted Bell,
the once-promising running back who
has been moved to the defensive secon-
dary. He will be a junior.
DARRYL ROGERS, MSU's new foot-
ball coach, said he did not yet know
how badly the team would be hurt, but
added, "I think anytime you lose any
football player, no matter who be is, it
hurts." He said he was not able to say
who would replace Hlunt, but said the
shorter, one-game penalties of the other
players improved the situation some-
Hunt and Cobb were penalized for
benefiting from the use of a credit card
owned by a "representative of the uni-
versity's athletic interests," and loaned
to an assistant coach.
The booster providing the credit card
has been identified as T. Michael Doyle,
a Lansing attorney and MSU alumnus.
In a report of its own investigation of the
NCAA allegations, the school acknowl-
edged both players admitted illegal use
of the credit card and said they would
Two players - Bell and middle guard
Melvin Land, a junior this fall - will
miss the Ohio State opener because
they accepted a ride with an assistant
coach from East Lansing to Cleveland
during the 1974 Thanksgiving holiday.
BELL WAS also accused of involve-
ment with what the NCAA termed "spe-
cial credit accounts" at a local travel
The other players barred from the
season's first game are star defensive
tackle Larry Bethea, who will be a
junior; defensive end Jim Epolitio, a
senior; and reserve quarterback Ed
Smith, a junior.
The penalties are the latest blow to
MSU football, which has been crippled
by the NCAA finding of 34 violations in
The school, put on three years' pro-
bation, forced coach Denny Stolz to re-
sign and hired a new coach, new as-
sistant coaches and a new athletic di-
rector in an attempt to clean house.
