Ex-'M' linebacker at home in pros
By SUSAN BROSER
Everything seems to be coming up
roses for the Michigan Panthers, and
one of those roses is a former Wolverine
linebacker named Carlton.
Picked up by the Panthers last mon-
th, Carlton Rose saw his first playing
team and feels that discipline and hard
work can get him out on the field again.
Rose says playing in the USFL is not
much different than playing in college.
"What it is, is a job," said the 6-0, 210-
pounder. "We work six to seven hours a
day in the Silverdome, just getting one
day a week off. It's just like college
ball, but it's nice - I have no classes to
The presence of old Wolverine team-
mates Anthony Carter, Paul Girgash
and Andy Cannivino helped make
Rose's transition from college to the
new league a smooth one.
"THEY ARE all level-headed guys
and everyone is treated as an equal,
whether you start or if you don't," said
Although he feels comfortable with
the Panthers, Rose admitted he is a lit-
tle uneasy about his life's new fast
pace. "I don't like all the travelling
back and forth, going from east to west.
he said. "We've been to New Orleans,
San Francisco, Chicago and Colorado
all really quick. It's a lot of rushing
around and its a long season - 20
games or more" .
Another hindrance to the linebacker's
adjustment has been a shoulder injury
suffered in college. Rose feels now,
however, that he is in "pretty good"
shape. He is looking forward to
receiving more playing time and, not
hesitating about being biased, he gives
a strong evaluation of the 1984 Pan-
"I FEEL as though we have the best
team in the league, both offensively and
defensively," said the positive-thinking
One of the leading tacklers on last
year's Michigan team, he is also op-
timistic about next year's Wolverines.
"Michigan is ,going to have a good
football team next year. It will be a
good offensive year," Rose said. "Paul
Jokisch should be strong and there will
be good running backs. The only
situation that may be tough is the quar-
terback position, and there also may be
problems with the outside linebackers,
without Lyles and Hassel."
The twenty-two year old may have
hard work in store for him but the
struggle may lead to something
promising. Rose is starting his career
in an increasingly popular league and
playing for the best team inthat league.
A broad smile appeared on his face when
asked if he like playing with the Pan-
"Its always been a childhood dream.
I wanted to play for any professional
team," he replied without hesitation.
"If I went for the NFL I would have
been a late draft choice and its no big
deal that I'm not with the NFL ... I'm
just glad to be here."

that they should be free to ignore the
National Collegiate Athletic
Association and cut more profitable
deals to televise games nationally.
THEY ARGUE the NCAA is violating
federal antitrust law because its TV
package reduces the number of games
available to viewers nationwide. A
federal appeals court agreed and in-
validated the NCAA arrangement.
The NCAA claims its TV deals
promote, not impede, competition. Its
lawyers will ask the high court to con-
tinue the broadcasting deal, which in
1983 involved $74.3 million in payments
and audiences of up to 22.5 million for
each game televised.
The colleges have won the support o
the federal government, which argues
that the NCAA plan limits the number
of games shown.
SOLICITOR General Rex Lee will tell
the justices that the NCAA's joint
operating venture lessens opportunities
for smaller schools' to appear on
television and restricts the chances of
major football schools to be seen "as
