in IM foot ball
By DAN NEWMAN
In much the same way that Ohio State
and Michigan turned Big Ten football of
the 70's into the Big Two, Rumsey
House and Elliot House have dominated
residence hall intramurals in recent
Since 1973, these two houses have
combined to win seven resident division
championships, five in Division A.
During this time, these two houses have
compiled a record of well over .750.
The manager of Rumsey's football
team, Bobby Evani, and Elliot's
resident director, Bill Harder, attribute
this success to excessive oparticipation
"The main factor for our domination
has been a great participation and a
willingness to represent the house,"
said Evani of his Rumsey squad, which
won the 'A' crown in '77-'78 and '78-'79.
Harder contends that there is more
enthusiasm on his Elliot teams than on
the other teams. "I think we take IM
football more seriously than the other
houses," he said. "Doing well is more
important to us." Elliot house won
Division A football from 1976 to 1978,
and it took the Division B crown last
How do these teams do it? "They just
go out and get the players," said one
me'mber of the Intramural Department
staff, who refused to commend further.
But Tom Phelps, who transferred to
Rumsey House prior to the football
season, sees it differently. "We just
naturally play well together," said
Indeed, many students consider it un-
fair that these two houses-which are
all male and have two squads
each-always seem to come up with the
campus' best athletes.
"Not true," according to Harder, who
has been Elliot's resident director the
past five years. "We're proud of our
success because we don't have any real
athletes. That's why when we beat
those teams with great athletes it's
even more satisfying." Harder added
that the house has had excellent
athletic directors over the years.
Asked if these two teams recruitthe
best athletes, Phelps responded, "I
wouldn't say we recruit. We just end up
with excellent atheltes."
"You can't recruit," responded
Evani. "We just spend a lot of time
practicing, sometimes two or three
times a week."
The question is how long can thi
domination continue? Currently, Rum-
sey House is 3-0, a definite contender
for this year's championship. But it's
too early to determine which teams will
dominate intramural football in the
'80's in the way Rumsey House and
Elliot House have in past years.

CHICAGO (AP)-University of
Illinois athletic director Neale Stone
said yesteday the school is following
Big Ten Conference rules on faculty
control of athletics.
"Certainly in my judgment Illinois is
in compliance," Stoner said. "The
house is in order from that standpoint."
THE CHICAGO Tribune reported
Wednesday that Big Ten faculty
representatives have drafted a
document that questions whether the
university is following conference rule
on faculty control of athletics.
Stoner said he has not yet seen the
Big Ten officials could not be reached
The Tribune reported that the
document, probably will be put into the
form of a letter to the university, and
may be made public next week. The
document was drawn up Tuesday after
three days of meetings in suburban
Rosemont, the newspaper reported.
ACCORDING TO the Tribune, th
document is a blueprint for deter-
mining if a school is following Big Ten
policy, and contains questions to which
the university will be asked to respond.
The Tribune quoted a Big Ten faculty
representative as saying that any talk
of expelling Illinois from the conference
The action was prompted by the con-
troversy over the eligibility of Illin
quarterback Dave Wilson, but does not
focus on Wilson, the newspaper repor-
"IN THE LONG run, people will
refer to this as the 'Illinois case,' not the
'Wilson case,"' a source told the
Tribune. "It goes right to the issue of
whether Illinois is adhering to the rules
of a voluntary association, even if those
rules don't always meet its needs."
Wilson, a junior college transfer from
California, filed suit against the con-
ference and the National Collegiat
Athletic Association seeking to reverse
a Big Ten decision denying him
academic eligibility for athletics.
Though the university also was
named a defendant in Wilson's suit,
school officials have defended his
eligibility. Illinois Chancellor John E.
Cribbett said last week that university
officials had examined Wilson's
academic credentials and found him
HOWEVER, BIG TEN officials are
questioning whether Illinois maintains
adequate faculty monitoring of athletic
programs, according to the report.
