Cage notes: Everything you
want to know and then some
By JESSE BARKIN
This just in from the Michigan lockerroom:
' If you think Michigan fans are useless, don't go to Toledo. At the
Oklahoma State - Michigan game in the Toledo Blade Glass-City Classic, the
Toledo rooters continually shouted "Sit down, down in front! !" It wouldn't
have been so surprising except they were yelling at the Wolverine players
who were off the bench near the end of the contest.
" Detroit Southwestern's 6-5 sensation, Antoine Joubert, seems very con-
fortable rapping with Leslie Rockymore in the Michigan lockerroom after
home games. Unless he has a con-
flicting engagement (a game of his
own) Joubert can usually be spotted
at Crisler Arena games. I
" Upset: Michigan cheerleader
Dave Miller lost a hand-walking con-
test across the court last weekend at
Bloomington to a Hoosier opponent.
It is believed to be the gymnast's fir-
.' st defeat. He is unbeaten in Crisler.
More news from Bloomington.
After the Hoosier 93-76 slaughter this
weekend, coach Bobby Knight went
into the Wolverine lockerroom to
give encouragement to the young
x ~ ' F "'Michigan cagers. When asked what
Knight, who is known to speak
basketball in technical terms (san-
ts, criss-crosses, angles), said to the
Wolverines, Bill Frieder said, "I
Miller don't know. I can't understand what
... upset at Bloomington he says; I don't think anyone does."
" At the beginning of the season much of the talk centered around the
emergence of Eric Turner as an all-American. One local ON TV broadcaster
even went as far as saying that there is no better guard in the country as the
6-3 Turner. Sorry folks, but potential does not count. He may someday
become one of the greats, but right now I'll take UCLA's Rod Foster, Arizona
State's Byron Scott, Marquette's Glenn Rivers, Notre Dame's John Paxson,
and maybe even Indiana's Jim Thomas. By the way, all the aforementioned
are upperclassmen which stands to prove ho valuable experience is.
" With that in mind, it's scary to think how good the Wolverines could be in
" During the football season, Bo Schembechler discussed the possible im-
plimentation of the alley-oop pass on the gridiron: "There's one guy on cam-
pus who could do it if I could only get him out. But he's dribbling like a fool.
I'm just kidding." Guess who? Wrong; Schembechler was talking about Roy
" Open letter to Richard Rellford, Paul Jokisch, et al: Safety and injury
prevention is all well and good, but please, please keep your mouth guards in
your mouth. The woman sitting next to me at one game almost lost her
nachos when Rellford picked his off the floor and shoved it back into his
mouth - dirt and all.
" Does it appear to you that Paul Jokish may contribute more to the
Wolverine cause as a football player? This is not to belittle his hoop-playing
skills, but the 6-8, forward is only averaging 7.3 minutes per game in the Big
Ten. Besides, the 235-pounder is no slouch at tight end.
" White towels have been surfacing in the student-filled sections behind the
South basket at Crisler Arena lately, mimicking the Wolverine coach.
Rumors are flyingthat Frieder actually buys his suits with towels already
sewn onto the shoulders.
" Two things bother me about the Michigan warm-ups. First of all, the
stripes have got to go; and second, with all the money Don Canham has, why
don't they get tear-off sweats. They are so cool. (Confidential to Tim Mc-
Cormick - you don't tuck in warm-ups.)

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Chuck

Bills from National Football League
doormats to divisional champions,

Knox, who took over the Bills in 1978
after leading the Los Angeles Rams to
five straight divisional titles, had one
year left on his initial six-year contract.
All contract obligations were waived,
team spokesman Dave Senko said.
"I APPRECIATE very much the
support of Ralph Wilson and the oppor-
tunity to coach the Bills these last five
years," Knox said in prepared
statement. He could not be reached at
Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, Rams'
Executive Vice President Ray Nagel
said, "If Chuck is interested in the LA
coaching job, certainly I would be in-
terested in talking with him about it."
The Rams fired head coach Ray
Malavasi at the end of the season. Knox
coached the Rams from 1973-1977.
Knox reportedly was offered a job
last summer as coach and general
manager with the Phoenix team in the
new United States Football League, and
several NFL teams reportedly wanted
his services. Knox has denied those
Knox's record in Buffalo was 37-36.
His overall record after 10 years in the

Club Sports roundup
With little or no snow to be found in the Ann Arbor area, the Michigan downhill ski
club headed north to compete the past two weekends.
At the Miller Lite Distributor's Race, which took place on the weekend of
January 15-16 at Crystal Mountain, both the men's and women's teams performed
extremely well. The women captured top honors, while the men raced to a strong
second-place finish behind Northwestern Michigan College.
The women were led by Amy Honer, who zig-zagged her way into second place in
the slalom event and zipped down the course for a third place in the giant-slalom
race. Teammate Becky Johnson grabbed third in the slalom as the women handily
won the event. The team score is the combined time of each school's top three
finishers. The men, meanwhile, were paced by team captain Chris McCoy, who
earned an eighth-place finish in the slalom race.
Last weekend at the Crystal Mountain Cup Race, the women's team was once
again king of the mountain, but the men's team had an uphill struggle and slipped
to a fifth-place finish out of 14 schools.
Honer provided Michigan its strongest finish as she took second place in the
giant slalom race. Jim McCollough, the only bright spot on an otherwise bleak day
for the men, finished ninth in the giant slalom.
"The girls did well," said McCoy, "But we should have done better. Fifth place
isn't very good; we're a lot better than that."
CR OSS-CROUNTR Y SKIING
The Michigan cross-country ski club also spent the weekend in the Great White
North as 10 of its members raced in the Region III Championships at the Boyne
The ground may have been white at the start of the women's five-kilometer race,
but the finish line was entirely Blue as Michigan's Linda Longo, Cammy Kelly, and
Kathy Fillmore pushed their way to first, second, and third place respectively.
Michigan performed as well in the men's 10-kilometer race where Jam Damman
slid into second place and Adam Ruskin notched a third place finish. In the U.S.
Ski Association 10-kilometer race, graduate students Sam James and Mike Muha
raced to sixth- and ninth-place finishes.
"We were very pleased because for several of the people who raced, it was their
first time in snow this year," said Muha.
The club will hold an indoor cross-country ski clinic on February 1 in the Ander-
son Rooms of the Michigan Union at 8:00 p.m.
The Club Sports Roundup relates briefly the activities of Michigan club
sports during the previous week. This week's information was compiled by

Bowie's new cast "will be such that he
