Card,
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Car-
dinals, molded by Manager Whitey
Herzog in his own feisty image and
driven by the persistent bats of Keith
Hernandez and George Hendrick, en-
ded 15 years of frustration last night by
beating the Milwaukee Brewers, 6-3, to
win baseball's 79th World Series.
The Cardinals won their ninth Series
and the fourth straight by a National
League team with three runs in the sixth
inning of the decisive seventh game, on
RBI hits by Hernandez and Hendrick
and the-seven-hit pitching of Joaquin
Andjar and Bruce Sutter. The Cards
pounded 15 hits.
THEY WERE the speed-oriented
Cardinals - a replica of Herzog's three
American League West Division cham-
pions in Kansas City, with perhaps a lit-
tle less power.
They were the Mississippi riverboat
gamblers, unafraid to risk the present
for the future either in the front office
or on the field. Eight of the 25 players on
the World Series roster were not on the
team when Herzog became manager
before the 1981 season.

win it all,

6-3

Perhaps the most daring of them all
was Andujar, who came back from a
painful leg injury to pitch seven innings
for his second victory of the Series.
HE WAS not perfect, but he had help,
and he made the big pitches when it was
necessary. Sutter pitched the last two
innings for his second save.
Sutter retired Gorman Thomas for
the last out on a strikeout with the
crowd shouting "Bruce, Bruce." As
fireworks exploded over the stadium,
Cardinal players mobbed the ace
reliever at the pitcher's mound and
fans poured onto the field despite the at-
tempts of security men to hold them
back.
When the lights were turned on at
Busch Stadium Wednesday night, they
shone on a new era of baseball in St.
Louis, which had been in 12 previous
World Series.
And the lights shone brightly on Her-
nandez, whose sleeping bat awoke in
Game 5 after going 0-for-16, and who
finished with a Series-high eight RBI.

THE SPORTING VIEWS
NCAA needs reform . ..
S colleges worship the dollar
By MIKE BRADLEY
First of a two-part series
THE NCAA MUST be reformed.
This all-knowing organization designed to control college athletics is rid-
dled with problems. Eighteen schools are currently on probation for
violations ranging from coaches buying cowboy boots for recruits, to alumni
paying for abortions for players' girlfriends. Student-athletes who complete
their eligibility at a university are not receiving their degrees. Larger
schools are trying to keep the smaller institutions from receiving a share of
coveted television revenues. Athletic departments are making so much
money from football and basketball that they can finance special projects
while ignoring minor sports (a one-million-dollar indoor football training
facility springs immediately to mind). The bottom line of all of this is that
while the athletic departments of these larger colleges are reaping extensive
revenues, the athletes themselves are being exploited.
When most colleges and universities were founded, their major goal was
not to provide students with the opportunity to develop their athletic skills,
but rather to provide quality education for the people of their area. Does this
commitment still hold today? In most cases, of course it does. However, in
the case of many student-athletes, one must wonder. Are these students
being run through the university simply to carry a football or hit -a 25-foot
jump shot? They could be. Let's look at some statistics.
Abe Lemons is the former basketball coach at the University of Texas,
where he served for six years. In that time, only one of the players he
recruited received a degree. Last year, of the 24 seniors who were regulars
on Southwest Conference basketball teams, only four received degrees.
That's a whopping 16.7 percent, the worst in the nation. Of course, the best
league in this respect was the Ivy League, where 12 out of 12 players earned
their sheepskins. This is to be expected, however, since the Ivy League has
maintained a de-emphasization policy in regard to athletics since 1956.
There are no scholarships, no spring football practices, freshmen can't play
varsity football, and all of the Ivies, except Yale, are in Division IAA in foot-
ball. This, of course, means smaller crowds, lower television revenues, and
lower quality athletics than one might find at Michigan, UCLA, or Notre
Dame. Somehow, I don't think the Ivies' administrations care that their
receipts are lower.
Alumni kick in
Athletic departments across the nation need money, lots of it, to maintain
their lofty status as NCAA powers in various sports. This money comes from
gate revenues, concessions, parking, and television monies from appearan-
ces throughout the season. In addition, each school's athletic booster clubs
raise inordinant sums of money each year. Penn State's Nittany Lions Club
presented that institution with $1.5 million last year, while Oklahoma and
Nebraska each received checks from their booster organizations for $1.2
million. These revenues are not illegal, but are contingent on one thing-
winning.
Also, no alumnus is going to give a hefty check to his alma mater for the
athletic program if his school is 1-10 every football season and 6-20 each hoop
campaign. Likewise, why should ABC or CBS televise Oregon State's
hapless football team, or Colorado's sad-sack basketball squad when they
can treat the nation to Alabama or North Carolina. To the victor goes the
spoils.
A slap on the wrist
So, how does the University make money? Good teams are the answer.
And, as we all know the only way to build good teams is to recruit star high
school athletes. The NCAA has set up stringent rules to which schools must
adhere when they are luring high school students to their institutions. They
frown on schools that violate the rules, and put any offenders on "probation"
a sentence which can range from a slap on the wrist to a loss of a few
scholarships in upcoming years to a loss of television and bowl appearances.
This last condition, as I have already shown, can cost the university a lot of
money. This penalty is rarely imposed, and when it is, does not last very
long.
Therefore, the university's athletic program is locked in a battle with
other schools to grab talented players that will bring winning seasons to
their schools and, subsequently, higher revenues. As a result of this, enor-
mous pressure is placed on athletes to perform at top capacity while still
concentrating on scholastics.
TOMORROW: The athlete and what can be done.
