Big Ten squads begin first full week

By CHRIS WILSON
Big Ten football starts rolling again
today and, though the eyes and ears of
Ann Arbor will undoubtedly be focused
on its Wolverines in Madison, a brief
glance should be taken at the actions of
thpir future opponents. On today's
schedule are two inter-conference con-
tests and four games against outside
opponents.
Up in East Lansing, the Michigan
State Spartans host the Illinois Fighting

Illini. The Illini are the only tested team
in the Big Ten. Last week they got off to
a somewhat less than auspicious start
by losing 26-6 to Pittsburgh on the road.
Illini coach Mike White might have bet-
ter luck'today if he wan get his team to
hold on to the ball. An all-rookie back-
field and a first year wide receiver kept
the offense jittery enough to lose three
fumbles to the Panthers last Saturday.
But even with a firm grasp on the ball
Illinois will have its share of problems

with the Spartans. Head Coach Muddy
Waters welcomed back 16 starters this
fall and a total of 41 lettermen. Among
those returning are quarterback John
Leister, tailback Derek Hughes and
wide receiver Ted Jones. And to add to
that returning talent, Michigan State
recruited prep All-American halfback
Aaron Roberts who will be lining up in
the starting backfield.
IN THE other inter-conference mat-
chup, rookie head coach Dennis Green
will pit his Northwestern Wildcats
against Lee Corso and the Hoosiers of
Indiana, down in Evanston. Green, who
inherited a team that went winless in its
last 22 attempts, has his work cut out
for him. A self-professed pass offense*
specialist from Stanford, Green is
rebuilding the questionable Wildcat of-

fense around senior quarterback Mike
Kerrigan who threw for 12 TD's last
season. However, Indiana will probably
ruin Northwestern's hopes for a new
direction. The Hoosier defense, led by
senior linebacker Craig Walls, while it
is not impenetrable, will be enough to
stop the undermanned Wildcat offen-
sive. On offense, Corso can look to his
star tight end, Bob Stephenson.
Stephenson should become Indiana's
all-time leading pass-catcher this
season and his sure hands should help
to make up for the loss of quarterback
Tim Clifford. Filling that spot is either
Babe Laufenberg or two-year man
Chad Huck. In either event, the
Hoosiers should have little trouble
shredding the Wildcat defense.
In West Lafayette, the air should be

filled with flying footballs as the Pur-
due Boilermakers host the Stanford
Cardinals. Both sides of this Big
Ten-Pacific Ten contest are known for
their passion for passing attacks. Pur-
due will miss quarterback Mark Herr-
mann and his favorite targets Bart
Burrell and Dave Young, but head
coach Jim Young is determined to con-
tinue his airborne ways with Larry
Gates at QB and lightening-quick Steve
Bryant at receiver. Stanford, mean-
while will center its attack upon the
mighty arm of junior signal caller John
Elway. Elway was named to the Spor-
ting News first team All-American
squad last year as a sophomore. The
last time a QB did that was in 1962.
However, even a star like Elway can't
do everything and since he won't be

able to help the Cardinal defense this
will be an extremely tight contest.
Another capacity crowd in Columbus
will be on hand to see Ohio State battle
Duke's Blue Devils. Head coach Earle
Bruce will call upon the considerable
talents of senior QB and Heisman
Trophy candidate Art Schlichter, as
well as running back Tim Spencer, and
the powerful Buckeyes will most likely
hold the Duke offense at bay.
The Iowa Hawkeyes have their hands
full as they square off against th
powerful Nebraska Cornhuskers in
their season opener. The Huskers,
perennially ranked in the Top Ten,
should enjoy a very pleasant stay in
Iowa City. In another out-of-conference
contest the Gophers of Minnesota
square off against Ohio University.

The Rock and the Chicken hit A2

MASS MEETING
SEPTEMBER 15 7:30 pm
UNIVERSITY CLUB
MICHIGAN UNION

By RON POLLACK
When the Slippery Rock Rockets take on the Wayne
State Tarters at Michigan Stadium today at 1:00
p.m., they will face quite a bit of competition for the
crowd's attention. Also performing will be 12,000 high
school band members, the Clydesdale horses of Bud-
weiser beer fame and the San Diego Chicken.
With such sideshows going on, goal line stands and
double reverses may not be as captivating as they
might otherwise be. But the head coaches of the two
football teams have no complaints about the pagean-
try that will surround the game, since a much larger
crowd than is ugual for either team will attend the
game to see these stunts.
BOTH COACHES say that the publicity and expec-
ted large crowd are beneficial to their respective
programs.
"I think it is always good to play in front of a large
crowd," said Slippery Rock head coach Fred Gold-
smith. "It can't hurt. A lot depends on how we do. If
we play good sound football, the experience is good.
It's good even if we don't but if we play well it's even
better."
"It's a big football game that we hope to do well
in," said Wayne State head coach Dave Ferris. "It's
a game that will be in front of the biggest crowd that
Wayne State will play in front of, and we hope to show

people what kind of football Wayne State is capable of
playing."
IN ASSESSING today's game, Goldsmith notes
that his team is just now moving up to the same
division as Wayne State. "It seems like Wayne
State's conference is a tough, established division II
conference," he said. "We're just in the process of
moving from division III to division II. Going against
a team that has recruited with scholarships, while we
haven't (division III schools do not use scholarships)
makes a giant question mark."
The Rockets will be led on offense by tailback Rick
Porter who rushed for 1,043 yards last season, scoring
five touchdowns in the process.
The leading candidates for the quarterback
position are sophomores John Elliot and Don,
Christian. However, neither possesses much ex-
perience as they only threw a combined total of 68
passes last year in backup roles, completing 24.
Nonetheless, Goldsmith says that he has no qualms
about putting the ball into the air.
"I THINK our quarterbacks are a 'eal strong
point," he said. "Barring the weather,we've been
practicing the forward pass. I don't mind throwing
the ball a bit. Both of our quarterbacks had good
springs."
Slippery Rock's top returning receiver is Robert
Green who caught 12 passes for 175 yards and one

touchdown last year.
On the defensive side of the line, the Rockets return
eight starters from last year's 4-5 ballclub. The most
notable returnees being middle guard John
Dahlstrand and defensive tackle Gary Hunt. The two
were the team's second and third leading tacklers
respectively this past season.
"I think if anybody is going to be good they have to
have a good defense," said Goldsmith. "I hope oux
defense can keep it a close football game."
STANDING OVER center for Wayne State will be
Greg Goldstein who, like his counterparts at Slippery
Rock, did not throw a tremendous amount of passes.
last year. On the season, he completed 31 of 85 attem-
pts for 402 yards and two touchdowns.
Running down Goldstein's tosses for the Tarters
should be flanker Paul Longo (36 receptions, 492 yar-
ds) and tight end Kevin Schneider (14 receptions, 158
yards).
On defense, Wayne State only returns four startersy
three of which line up in the secondary. Junior free
safety Chuck Aldrich has led the team in intercep
tions the last two years, while strong safety John Ker-
fey and cornerback Sherman Fuqua each picked off
three passes last season. The other holdover from the,
past season's defensive unit is weakside linebacker
Steve Doman.

Cedeno fined
$5000, but,
suspension
lifted by NL
president

NEW YORK (AP)- National League President Chub
Feeney lifted the suspension of first baseman Cesar Cedeno
of the Houston Astros yesterday but fined him $5,000 for en-
tering the stands earlier this week during a game at Atlanta.
The incident occurred Tuesday night and Cedeno was ejec-
ted from the game. Feeney suspended Cedeno for an un-
determined period Wednesday.
CEDENO, A native of the Dominican Republic, said a fan
who called him "killer" provoked him to go into the stands.
Cedeno was convicted on involuntary manslaughter and
fined $100 in January 1974 after the fatal shooting of a 19-
year-old woman in Santo Domingo.
"People who attend baseball games have the right, and it is
part of the enjoyment of the game, to root vociferously for
their favorites or, on the other hand, vent in a sportsmanlike

fashion feelings towards players that are negative, and
players expect this as part of their profession," said Feeney.
"Yet in this case the evidence is compelling that the
remarks made by fans went beyond the realm of decency.
This type of spectator behavior is not only unfair to the
players, but is unacceptable to the vast majority of the fans
who go to the game for entertainment and enjoyment rather.
than to express such anti-social behavior.
"It is the policy of this office that extreme actions by spec-
tators that infringe- upon the rights of players and other fans
be responded to by proper security measures, including ejec-'
tion and,: in cases where objects are involved, legal
prosecution."
