LATE GOAL BEATS MICHIGAN
Icers succumb to Buckeyes, 4-3

By MARTHA CRALL
Ohio State prevailed in the key third
period of last night's Central Collegiate
Hockey Association (CCHA) contest,
overcoming a 3-2 deficit to defeat
Michigan, 4-3, before 5,479 at Yost
Arena.
The first two periods of play were
sloppy and after 40 minutes of play the
score was tied at two. But the two
teams traded goals in the third and at
18:14 OSU's Jamie Crapper scored to
give the Buckeyes enough goals to win.
"WE DIDN'T play that bad," said a
disappointed Michigan coach John
Giordano. "We didn't play that well in
the first two periods, but we played
pretty well in the third.
"We put a lot of pressure on in the
third," Giordano continued. "We
showed that we're in excellent con-
dition. They (the Buckeyes) were
dead."
"We played with a good mental at-
titude," said Ohio State coach Jerry
Welsh. "We didn't play too much dif-
ferent from the, way we did the last

five games, but the guys believe that
what we're doing is proper."
MICHIGAN LOOKED like a team
that had an extra week off, as it was flat
in the first period-and-a-half. The.
bright spot for the Wolverines was
goalie Jon Elliott, who saved 37
Buckeye shots.
"Elliott did a good job," Giordano
said. "The first goal he shouldn't have
given up, but otherwise, he wasn't
bad."
Injuries were the key, according to
Giordano. Senior Paul Brandrup didn't
dress and Brian Lundberg was injured
early in the game. In addition, Joe
Milburn and Mike Neff suffered second
degree shoulder separations during the
contest.
Ohio State drew first blood in the
game, and did so early, when Steve
Amoruso slithered a shot right through
Elliott's legs. The goal came only 51
seconds into the contest, and the puck
just made it over the goal line.
Michigan, however, came back to tie
the score at one before the period's end.

Brad Tippett shot a Ted Speers rebound
past Buckeye goalie John Damrath,
who had skated out of position at 16:50.
OHIO STATE'S second goal came
when Michigan defenseman Steve
Richmond brought the puck from
behind the Wolverine net and over-
skated the puck on his way out.
Buckeye Perry Pooley then picked up
the puck at the goal line and shot low in-
to the corner of the net at 6:48.
The Wolverines tied the game on a
breakaway by Don Krussman on a long
pass out of the Michigan zone from
Mike Neff at 15:49.

McCauley, who put the puck by Damrath
at 1:08. The assists were Speers.' first
and second of the season. He leads the
team with 10 goals.
Ohio State added the tying goal at
6:47 when Jamie Macoun rifled a slap-
shot from the left point which grazed off
Paul Pooley's stick past Elliott.

Filling the void:

'M' gridders Hall and Washington go
to the aid of injury-riddled hoopsters

By BOB WOJNOWSKI
Whoever said Michigan football
coach Bo Schembechler is a hard man
to deal with probably just didn't go
about it in the right way.
"I went into Bo's office and asked
him if it was okay to go out for basket-
ball," says gridder-turned-cager Greg
Washington. "He said, 'Go ahead."'
WHILE SUCH testimony does
nothing for Schembechler's reputation
for being something of a curmudgeon, it
pleases Bill Frieder and his depleted
band of cagers to no end.
And, although doubling up in college
athletics is not unusual, this situation is
a little odd in that Washington, as well
as third-string quarterback Dave Hall,
are currently playing for the cagers
even though the football season is not
yet over.

Frieder himself talked with Schem-
bechler before this Lend-Lease
program got underway and assured
him that the gridders would be retur-
ned, hopefully unharmed, in time for
the Wolverines' preparations for the
Bluebonnet Bowl, which get underway
December 17. The Bowl may leave
Frieder with only nine players to take
west to the Winston Tire Holiday
Classic in Los Angeles December 27-28.
The addition of the football players
nevertheless temporarily alleviates the
cagers' current personnel problems
which have arisen from the departure
of M.C. Burton and the injuries to cen-
ters Jon Antonides and Tim McCor-
mick.
"IT'S MAINLY because of the in-
juries that we asked them to come out
early," says Frieder. "Greg was plan-
ning on coming out anyhow, and Dave

had inquired some time
playing basketball."

ago about

Hall, a 6-4 sophomore from Livonia,
where he was all-state in both football
and basketball, hasn't played com-
petitive basketball since his senior year
in high school, and he admits that it will
be a while before he'll be in top form.
"It'll take a while to get my shot
back," he says. "But once I get it going,
I hope to score some points."
WASHINGTON, a 6-3 freshman out of

Detroit, was named Blue Chip
magazine's national high school athlete
of the year his senior year, and he
stipulated when he signed a letter-of-
intent that he planned on playing both
basketball and football at Michigan.
But even a prep All-American has
troubles switching sports so abruptly.
"It's very, very tough," he says.
"Football consists of lifting weights,
while basketball is just continuous run-
ning."
Although both players say the two
'They're (Greg Washing-
ton, left, and Dave
Hall, right) just not in basket-
ball shape right now. But as
the season goes on, we're
hoping they can contribute
more and more.'
-Bill Frieder

sports and their respective practices
are equally strenuous, they differ in
opinion when it comes to naming a
favorite sport.
"I LIKE basketball a lot more
because it's funner to practice," says
Washington. "But whichever sport I'm
playing is the one I'm enjoying."
Hall, who also plans on participating
in track and field in the spring, hedges a
bit.
"I really don't have a favorite," he
says, "although I do enjoy track quite a
bit."

WASHINGTON, who plays wide
receiver on Bo's squad, will be either a
small forward or guard on Bill's squad.
Frieder will probably use Hall in a
similar capacity.
"I think I'll mostly be playing guard,
but our guards have to rebound for us
too," says Washington. "And reboun-
ding-wise I think I'm strong enough to
help out down low."
While Frieder admits that their con-
tributigns at first will be minimal, lie's
planning on much more out of his
"borrowed" gridders later in the year.
"They're just not in basketball shape
right now," he says. "But as the season
goes on, we're hoping they can con-
tribute more and more."
Until then, Hall must be content
playing a sport he didn't think he'd by
playing, Washington must be content
playing a sport before he thought he'd
be playing, and Frieder must6 b'con-
tent using a couple of players he didn't
think he'd be using. And it's all thanks
to Bo Schembechler's Lend-Lease
program.

THIS BUD'S FOR YOU
By BUDDY MOOREHOUSE;
Give it up, Joe .. .
. . give 'em hell, Jumbo
S MOKIN' JOE Frazier, all 37 years and 230 pounds of him, made his
non-awaited comeback attempt Thursday night in Chicago against an
ex-con by the name of Floyd "Jumbo" Cummings. The result was a 10-round
draw.
That's right, a draw. No winner. Kissing your sister. Cummings' meui
claim that their fighter had Smokin' Joe whipped. The two judges who
scored the bout a toss-up were just showing sympathy for an old man, they
said. But that was the result of Frazier's return to the ring after a five-year
layoff.
Personally, I didn't see the fight, but then, neither did a lot of people. Only
a couple thousand boxing fans, perhaps hoping to see some flashes of the Joe
Frazier of old, paid to see the match. I can't say whether Cummings really
won the fight, but I can say that I really wish he had. For a couple of reasons.
First, if Jumbo had beaten Joe, it might have convinced Frazier once and
for all that attempting a comeback was a bad idea. Maybe he would have
decided that he really was too old and out of shape to get back in the ring. But
as it turned out, Frazier will no doubt go on to other fights now, thinking that
he still has the ingredients to be a champion.
Smokin' Joe is simply not the same fighter he was 10 years ago, when he
dumped Muhammad Ali in what is still called "The Fight of the Century."
Frazier was a great champion, and it's sad to see that he can't just accept his
past without continually trying to relive it.
If Joe really wants to make a comeback, stick him in the ring with Ali
again. The Mighty Mouth is also making a shameful return to the ring, so a
bout between he and Frazier would be perfect. Two old men reliving their
past.
A pro to the cons
But the real reason I was pulling for Jumbo was because of where he came
from. Prior to 1979, he had spent 12 years behind the drab gray walls of the
Stateville Correctional Center in Joliet, Ill. Cummings was serving time for
a murder he had committed during a robbery.
Last summer, I spent two months in Stateville, teaching journalism to the
inmate staff of the prison newspaper. It was there that I learned that
although the 29-year-old Cummings is a relatively unknown fighter outside
of Chicago, he is a legend to the men at Stateville.
When he first entered the prison as a teenager, Jumbo started lifting
weights and hitting the speed bag to relieve the boredom. By the time Cum-
mings left Stateville, he looked just about as muscular as a person could get.
He immediately started fighting professionally after he was parolled,
beating opponent after opponent before he met Renaldo "I knocked down
Larry Holmes" Snipes in a nationally televised match earlier this year.
Snipes won a close decision in that fight, but it's the only loss Jumbo has on
his 17-1-1 record. '
Sports is a very big part of life to the guys at Stateville, and all of them
take great pride in Jumbo's accomplishments. The boxing room in the
prison is plastered with posters from his early fights. Once, when a man in
the prison was bench-pressing a tremendous amount of weight, I remarked
