A Daily Sports Analysis
Talent in college football seems to
run in cycles. Nineteen seventy-one was
an excellent year for quarterbacks, as
Jim Plunkett, Archie Manning and Dan
Pastorini were the first three athletes
chosen in the annual National Football
League player draft. In 1978 the
spotlight was on wide receivers when
James Lofton, Wes Chandler and John
Jefferson were gobbled up early. And
last season saw six defensive backs
taken in the first round.
So it comes as no surprise that the
crop of players available for the up-
coming April 28-29 draft again has an,
overabundance of talent at one position.
With Hugh Green, Lawrence Taylor,
E.J. Junior, Ricky Jackson and Mel
Owens all potential first-round draft
choices, 1981 would seem to be the year
of the outside linebacker.
1. Hugh Green-Pittsburgh
2. Lawrence Taylor-North Carolina
3., Ricky Jackson-Pittsburgh
4. E.J. Junior-Alabama
5. Mel Owens-Michigan
Green is the most dominant defensive
player in the draft. Only a small step
behind him is Taylor, a bone-crushing
tackler. Jackson possesses tremendous
athletic talent and would have received
much greater attention were he not
overshadowed by Green. Owens' 4.68
speed in the 40 makes him one of the
fastest linebackers to graduate in 1980.
1. Mike Singletary-Baylor
2. Robin Sendlein-Texas
3, Steve Doolittle-Colorado
4. Jim Collins-Syracuse
5. Kent Klausen-Montana
Singletary is an extremely intense
player who does whatever it takes to
win. He was a dominating player in
college despite only standing 5'111/2".
Sendlein is the exact opposite of
Singletary. He is blessed with great
size, but was inhibited by the
disciplined Texas defense. Doolittle and
Collins both hit well, but Doolittle has
been hampered by hamstring
problems, while Collins lacks some
1. Ted Watts-Texas Tech
2. Hanford Dixon-Southern Mis-
3. Bobby Butler-Florida State
4. John Sinimons-SMU
5. Jeff Griffin-Utah
Watts can do about everything a good
defensive back must. His 4.5 speed in
the 40 allows him to stay with the
fastest of receivers, and he is also a
ferocious hitter. Dixon anticipates well
and makes a lbt of big plays. Butler is a
sprinter on Florida State's track team.
Combine his speed with his willingness
to hit, and you have the best coverage
man in the draft. Simmons has shown
tremendous improvement for SMU,
and although he is not a savage hitter,
he gets the job done. Griffin has superb
reactions and is a threat to intercept
any sideline pass and return it for a
1. Kenny Easley-UCLA
2. Ronnie Lott--USC
3. Dennis Smith-USC
4. Don Washington-Texas A&I
5. Russell Gary-Nebraska
Easley is a complete player. He is
quick, agile, a hitter, and a superb
special teams performer. Lott, like
Easley, is everything a safety should
be. He is an excellent blitzer and has
great timing against the pass. he plays
with intensity and always seems to be
involved in the action. Although Smith
is not in the same class as Easley and
his teammate Lott, he comes close,
with better size and speed than either of
the first two. Washington missed the
beginning of the year with a broken
hand but has come back strong.
1. Leonard Mitchell-Houston
2. Mike Robinson-Arizona
3. Keith Gary-Oklahoma
4. Greg Meisner-Pittsburgh
5. Ben Rudolph-Cal State-Long
Mitchell has super size and speed. At
times he can dominate a game, but he
does not always play up to his awesome
potential. Robinson will be a 25-year-old
rookie, so he will not have the luxury of
gradual development. Robinson played
well in the post season bowl games,
which should move him up in the draft.
Gary is a fine pass rusher but has had
bad luck with injuries.

The Chinese philosopher Chuang Tzu,
a teacher of Taoism, once wrote an ac-
count of a butcher with unheard-of
abilities. His axe hand was so sure the
man had used the same chopped for
nineteen years. Every part of his stroke
accomplished something pertinent to
his task. One day he was asked, "How
has your skill reached such height?" ,
"What I, your servant, like is Tao,
which surpasses skill," the butcher
replied. "When I first began to cut up
oxen, all I could see was the ox itself.
After three years, I no longer saw the
whole ox. Now I get at it with my spirit
and do not see with my eye. My sense
perception stops but my spirit works
Using the mind's eye, Motherwell
distills his physical world. "As a result
of the poverty of modern life, we are
confronted with the circumstance that4
art is more interesting than life," he
wrote in 1944. Which is not to say that
his work excludes the physical world.
With a cluster of strokes he makes a
cogent statement on gravity; his selec-
tions of inks and papers prvokes all sor-
ts of sensual reactions. These works
focus on elemental forces of the natural
world, and on mental states and
emotions prompted by it. This is the
Motherwell work shown at the Simsar
- the labor of the eye and the mind's
eye in tandem, working instan-
