Hoey provides guidance

By RANDY BERGER
One only has to look at the long list of
Wools currently on athletic probation
to see that there is a growing tem-
ptation to let athletes slide by
academically. With this assumption,
more pressure is being placed on
academic counselors to make sure that
athletes remain academically eligible.
However, to George Hoey,
Michigan's academic conselor for
athletes, the pressure of the job can be
over-exaggerated.
1 I DON'-T FEEL the pressures that
people have alluded to to exist in terms
that you got to keep someone eligible,"
said the former Michigan defensive
back. "I can't keep them eligible
because I'm not the one going to classes
but I am here to provide support."
The job of the academic counselor,
according to Hoey, is more to advise
and help the athletes in how to pursue
their academic career at Michigan
rather: than making sure they
raduate or attend all of their classes.
{ "I think everybody is in a position to
be helped, whether it is those who are
marginal students or not but to what ex-
tent is the only question," added Hoey.
"Whether it takes one through
graduation or to the point of being able
to graduate and then not following
through are two separate things. There
is only so much any individual or group
of individuals can do to influence another

individual.'
ONE THING that is certain to Hoey is
that despite what people may say about
scarcity of true student-athletes,
schools are placing more emphasis on
finding an athlete who is interested in
being successful in academics. When Hoey
was playing in the mid-sixties, athletes
did not have the luxury of being able to
seek help from an academic counselor.
"When I was playing there was no
academic counselor so I had to pretty
much look out for myself," said Hoey.

Hoey is certainly one who can under-
stand the position that athletes are in.
While holding aspirations of someday
going into professional football, Hoey
had to balance how much time to spend
on the fogtball field and in the
classroom. However, Hoey's situation
was probably more prosperous than
most.
After not.playing his first two years,
Hoey switched from running back to

defensive back. Subsequently, he made
All-Big Ten two years in a row while
also specializing in punt returning.
Although he was drafted by the
Detroit Lions in the 14th round in 1968,
Hoey's professional career never really
developed. He played for as many as
five teams in the span of eight years
before retiring from football and retur-
ning to Michigan in 1975.
"I WAS A journeyman defensive
back but the times were relatively
Hoey...
... counsels athletes
good," stated Hoey. "It was overall a
good experience."
In 1976 Hoey joined the admissions of-
fice and acted mainly as a liaison bet-
ween the athletic department and the
admissions office. After Jim Betts
vacated the spot of academic counselor
in 1978 Hoey stepped in.
"I always had an interest in the job
from having been the person who was
admitting the athletes and not being
able to follow up on what happen to
them."
IN ADDITION to coordinating all the
activities involving eligibility for com-
petition and scholarships, the job of
academic counselor has been further
expanded. Hoey is also involved in in-
dividual counseling and coordinating a
tutorial program channeled through the
athletic department.

"I would even like to see my role ex-
panded even more," added Hoey. "I'm
interested in tapping into the area of
career planning. Given their demands
to practice, athletes are taken out of the
same context of using the University's
facilities like other students. They tell
the students that facilities are always
available for the students' use but
sometimes the athlete can't find the
time to use them."

THE SPORTING VIEWS

C.

NBA poised and ready .. .
. .. Lakers to take it all
By JESSE BARKIN4
First of a two-part series
ATIONAL Basketball Association rosters underwent heavy personnel
changes since the season ended last May, but the end result will be
exactly the same as last year: a final series featuring the Los. Angeles
Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers.
And like last May's finale, the defending world champion Lakers will
emerge victorious.
During the off-season the league was deluged with trades involving some
of the league's premier players, and coupled, with one of the deepest
collegiate drafts in modern NBA history, the makeup of many teams has
drastically altered. .
David Thompson, Bernard King, Darryl Dawkins, Artis Gilmore, John
Drew and a host of others will play for teams other than those they ran for
last season. Indeed, in the NBA, "You can't tell 'em without a program" is
not just a hawker's line-it is a reality.
But after all the wheeling and dealing was over and the smoke had
cleared, one thing was certain-and wouldn't it just figure-the Lakers,
76ers, and Boston Celtics, the top teams over the past few seasons, were
three of the most improved.
The Lakers, who won a record 12 of 14 playoff games, establishing them-
selves as one of the greatest teams in history, had first pick overall in the
draft; the Sixers, championship finalists two of the last three years, traded
for the best center in basketball; and the Celtics, 1981 NBA champions and
owners of the league's best won-loss record last season, received one of the
most talented point guards in exchange for a man that "retired" two seasons
ago.
As if the Lakers needed any more help in ruling the West, they got it in a
strong, quick and agile power forward: introducing James Worthy.
The Sixers, perennial bridesmaids, traded away under-achiever Dawkins,
and thus were in need of the best center in basketball: meet Moses Malone.
And the Celtics, whose frontline is unsurpassed in quality and quantity,
and whose only weakness is at guard traded ex-player Dave Cowens to
Milwaukee: enter Quinn Buckner.
The Lakers, possessors of the best running game in NBA history, are a
veteran team that knows what it takes to go all the way. With Norm Nixon,
Magic Johnson, Michael Cooper, Jamaal Wilkes, Worthy, Bob McAdoo, and
of course Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Los Angeles might become the first team
in 13 years to repeat as champions.
But the 76ers have Malone; and this may be all that has to be said. The 6-11
center led the league in rebounding and was second in scoring last year
enroute to being named the NBA player of the year. And in 1981 he took the
otherwise sad-sack Houston Rockets to the finals. This year, his teammates
are anything but sad. Julius Erving, Andrew Toney, Bobby Jones and
Maurice Cheeks will surround Malone to form an awesome fivesome.
So where do the Celtics fit in? Well, Robert Parrish, Larry Bird, Cedric
Maxwell, and reserves Kevin McHale and Rick Robey form a frontline that
can wear down any team-including the new Sixers. But the key to the Boston
season is its backcourt; especially Buckner and Danny Ainge. Ainge was a
disappointment last season. But critics tend to overlook the fact that he was
only a rookie thrown into the pressure that surrounds the NBA playoffs.
So it will be the Lakers versus the survivor of the Celtics/Sixers series,
right? Probably. But it won't be the cakewalk many think; and contrary to
what Brent Musberger and CBS think there are other teams in the NBA
besides these three. So what about the rest of the league?
Tomorrow: the other guys.

begin with four months
of leadership training.
Then as a Navy officer
you get a full year of
graduate-level training
unavailable anywhere else at any price.
Navy training is based on more than
1900 reactor-years of experience. Right
now the Navy operates over half the
nuclear reactors in America. And the
Navy's nuclear equipment is the most
sophisticated in the world. That's why
your Navy training is and must be the
most sophisticated in the world.
As an officer in the Nuclear Navy,
you have decision-making authority

The rewards can begin as early as
your junior year in college. Qualify, and
the Navy will pay you approximately
$1000/month while you finish school.
After four years, with regular
