USFJ
By RON POLLACK
Evil or beneficial. Which word best
describes the new United States Foot-
ball League? Unlike Michigan athletic
director Don Canham and football
coach Bo Schembechler, who opt for
evil, the prevailing attitude of
Wolverine gridders is that theUSFL
serves a very useful purpose, but has
certain drawbacks.
"I think it offers many players a
chance to play who may not have been
able to play in the NFL," said junior of-
fensive guard Stefan Humphries.
"That's good. What I don't like is that
the season starts during a player's
senior year. He may not graduate and
that's bad."
JUNIOR RUNNING back Kerry
Smith said that the consensus of the
Wolverines' squad is in favor of the
USFL.
"I think the guys are pretty excited,"
said Smith. "They look at it as an op-
portunity. I do. It opens doors and
makes for twice as many jobs. The
players aren't looking down on the
USFL."
An-outspoken opponent of the new
league is senior defensive back Jerry
Burgei.
"PERSONALLY, AFTER all the
wheeling and dealing of the last few,
weeks I lost a little respect for them,"
he said. "What they've done has been
unethical, immoral and out of control."
The wheeling and dealing Burgei
referred to, and which has caused an
uproar in college football circles, is the
New Jersey Generals' signing of junior
tailback Herschel Walker. College
coaches, administrators and even some
of Michigan's players feel that a bad
precedent was set by the USFL signing
an underclassman.
"The NFL has never taken a college
athlete out as a junior," said Burgei.
"So I think there's a legitimate com-
plaint."
IN CONTRAST, Humphries looked at
the Walker signing from both sides of
the issue.

FG: Is it evil or

beneficial?

'M' players state their opinions

on new lel
"I see some good points and bad poin-
ts," said the offensive guard. "The good
point being that as a senior he'd risk in-
jury and here was an opportunity to
play and not have that risk. You never
know when a freak injury will happen
because he's keyed on. The bad is that it
might open the door for more un-
dergraduates to sign."
'Personally, after all the
wheeling and dealing of the
last few weeks I lost a little
respect for them. What
they've done has been
unethical, immoral and out
of control.'

on the USFL

ague s reeeir
receiver Vince Bean or sophomore
middle guard Al Sincich that Walker
signed a three-year contract which has
been estimated to be worth anywhere
between $4.5 and 16.5 million.
"I think it makes a lot of sense," said
Bean. "For that kind of money, what do
you need school for? I think it was very
sensible on Herschel's part."

it signings,
phries. "I think the USFL opens the
door for juniors leaving early and
maybe being a little disappointed. A
junior or sophomore may think he has
the capabilities to play pro ball and
then be disappointed if he doesn't make
the team at a time in his life when he's
not mature enough to deal with the set-
back."
SAID BURGEI: "A ban would be
good. If the USFL takes players as
juniors, a ban would be good. A ban
would probably hurt seniors, but if you
want to make it you can contact the
USFL after you graduate."
Smith concurred. "I know the NFL
scouts watch our practices. If the USFL
is banned it might be bad if it hurts
players chances. But in the end, you'll
make it if you're good enough."
Bean and Sincich both said they un-
derstand why a ban might be instituted,
but have qualms about it because of
the harm it might do to seniors,
"WE CAN understand Bo's point
because he stresses a degree," said
Bean. "So I can see the man's point, but
it may hurt a guy's only chance-to turn
pro. So there are two sides."
"I'd say it's best for the players in

that if players leave as sophomores or
juniors they'll regret it later," said Sin-
cich. "But I'd be against a ban if it hur-
ts the seniors' chances with the USFL."
Before Walker signed with the USFL,
college coaches were expressing con-
siderable concern over the league's
schedule. If a college senior signs with
the USFL, he must miss his final term
since the new league's season begins in
March.
BEAN AND Burgei said that many
players in this situation probably won't
return to college for their degree during
the off-season.
"I doubt very seriously that they'd go
back," said Bean. "Once you leave
school, it's hard to go back. So in most
cases, I don't know too many players
who would go back."
Said Burgei: "A few of them, if they
make it, might not go back for their
degree. In fact, I'd say a lot of them
probably won't but we'll have to wait
and see.
SMITH SAID that the decision to go
back for a degree depends on the in-
dividual. "It's how you're brought up,"
he said. "Do you want a degree or not?"
Sincich was the most optimistic of all
the Wolverines, predicting that USFL
players will return to their college
campuses in large numbers.
"I think most might, especially if
they have something good going at their
University. Bo stresses that and I think
most will go back."

Smith took the stand that the Walker "IF YOU put $16.5 million in front of
case had special circumstances and anyone they'll go," said Sincich. "I
cannot be compared to the situations of don't think anyone could turn that
most collegiate football players. down."

CCHA playoffs heat up

By MIKE MCGRAW
If the ice does not melt this weekend during the late
winter heat wave that is tearing through the midwest,
the Central Collegiate Hockey Association will begin its
tournament to crown the conference champion.
the first round consists of a two-game total-goals-.
scored series with the winners moving on to the finals
next week at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. Here are this
weekend's matchups:
Notre Dame (13-17-2) at Bowling Green (24-5-2)
The first-place Falcons had the conference standings
in their favor the whole season but now may have cause
to worry. Three weeks ago in South Bend, the Irish beat
and tied BG .
"Bowling Green is a very tough place to play," said
Irish coach Lefty Smith. "They handled us easily there
early in the season, but we're a much improved team."
Ferris State (12-16-4) at Michigan State (23-9-0)
The Spartans didn't live up to their lofty pre-season ex-
pectations, but coach Ron Mason feels they still had a
,successful year up to now. But now MSU's traditional
nemesis, Ferris State, comes to town and they always
cause problems for State, including two victories this
year.
"We had our best year ever against them, a .500
record," said Mason. "It will be a very good series."
"As I looked at the films of our past games against

State, they seemed to be just going through the
motions," said Bulldog coach Dick Bertrand. "But they
beat us 10-2 over there the last time we played, so they
may have finally woke up."
Miami(15-16-1) at Ohio State (21-7-4)
The battle for the second best team in Ohio commences
tonight featuring two teams that have no playoff ex-
perience. But that,worries Miami much more than it
does Jerry Welsh, coach of the Buckeyes. "The more
pressure we can be under, the better we will perform,"
said Welsh.
"We seemed a little tight and nervous in practice this
week in anticipating the games," said Redskin coach
Steve Cady.,.'But I hope once the game starts, we'll play
with the confidence we've shown before."
Northern Mich. (16-13-3) at Mich. Tech (20-12-0)
Talk about big rivalries, they don't get much more in-
tense in college hockey than this one. The teams faced
off just two weeks ago and the Huskies won both games.
Plus with Tech playing at home this week, they would
seem to have an advantage, but that may not be the
case.
Last week when MTU played Michigan they lost
leading scorer Bill Terry to a shoulder injury as well as
forwards Ward Sparrow and Kurt Pearson, leaving Tech
very short on the front line. While all the other series will
be Friday-Saturday, the first game at Houghton will be
tomorrow with the windup on Sunday.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington
Redskins runningback John Riggins
signed a long-term contract with the
Super Bowl champions yesterday, the
team announced.
Riggins, who became a free agent af-
ter the Super Bowl victory, reportedly
was offered a three-year, $2.5 million
guaranteed contract with the Michigan
Panthers of the United States Football
League.
THE REDSKINS did not announce
terms nor conditions of the pact, but
owner Jack Kent Cooke said the con-
tract "will cover the rest of his playing
days in football."
His salary of $330,000 last season was

highest on the team.
Riggins said, "This is what I always
wanted." The Super Bowl Most
Valuable Player commented, "I'm
glad, real glad."
In a brief, prepared team announ-
cement, Riggins referred to next year's
Super Bowl site and told Cooke, "Next
stop, Tampa Bay. I'll see you there."
