"THEY'RE A BUNCH OF COM-
MUNISTS, DON'T READ WHAT
THEY WRITE," instructed Wolverine
head football coach Bo Schembechler.
Yes, word got out that Schembechler
told his players not to read the Daily
sports pages because we're com-
munists who don't know anything about
gridiron glory.
What the coach fails to realize is that
the Daily's four football writers are his
biggest fans on campus. When the
Wolverines are obliterated by Big Ten.

anywhere.
BO'S PROBLEMS stem from the fact
that the gang of four who cover football
are committed to reporting a 4-3 team.
When asked to respond to Schem-
bechler's charge of being Commies,
Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and Gromyko were
unimpressed.
Only Katie Blackwell admitted that
she was indeed considering Gus Hall,
the Communist Party's presidential
candidate, for the White House. Katie's

Schembechler anyway. I'm a young
Republican."
Shying away from politics for a
moment, we arrive at this week's
special guest, Joe McFarland. Mc-
Farland has dominated his sport as no
other Wolverine athlete in recent years.
A senior 126-pound wrestler from North
Olmsted, Ohio, McFarland was runner
up at last year's National Champion-
ships and an All-American for the third
time. McFarland's three-year mark is
124-20-4. One shudders to think what
McFarland would do to Bo if Schem-
bechler ever called him a Commie.

Winning with White .. .
Bblackens the Illini
THERE ARE two anecdotes that say it all about Illinois head football
criminal ... er coach . . . er crook . .. ah, let's go with coach, Mike
White.
In 1977, White was booted as the head coach of the California Golden Bear
football program. In '77, White guided Cal to an 8-3 record. Head coaches at
major colleges DO NOT get fired after going 8-3.
In the 1984 Illinois media guide, White's biography is supported by quotes
from professional coaches, testifying to the fact that White is the most
"astute, outstanding and intelligent" man since Alexander 'the Great.'
It is a point of fact that college media guides do not normally require suppor-
ting quotations as to the character of their coaches.
You see, Mike White is the biggest cheater still active in college athletics.
He has built a winning football program in Champaign by virtue of deceit,
illegal recruiting procedures and foul coaching tactics.
Ask any Big Ten football coach to comment on
White's program and you will inspire a shudder.
White's five-year reign in Illini country has
brought embarrassment after embarrassment to
the integrity of the conference.
How foul is White, you ask? Can a football
coach possibly be so corrupt?
Just consider the fact that three days ago the
University of Florida was hit with a smashing
three-year NCAA probation. Florida had un-
dergone a two-year NCAA investigation and was
nailed for a mere 107 rules infractions.W hite
Florida's sentence is three years of not being able
to play a bowl game and three years of not being
permitted on television. When it became ap-
parent that the Gator football program was
finished, head coach Charlie Pell was im-
mediately dismissed. Pell was considered a
distinguished coach.
Are you curious as to White's claim to fame?
Last July, after a two-and-a-half-year in-
vestigation, the NCAA nailed White to the wall
for 187 infractions!
White must have been jumping for joy when
the boom was lowered on the Illini in July. Had
the Illinois bust surfaced during the season, Moeller
when it would have gotten greater press
coverage, White's head coaching career would have been finished.
Florida and her 107 violations gets three years, Illinois with its 187 gets one
year. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm. There seem to be some inequities with
this one.
"Mike White is a great coach. But Mike White is not the world's greatest
administrator. I'm certain that Mike has learned a very bitter lesson," said
Illinois Chancellor, John Cribbet last summer.
Hey Illinois, who are you kidding. Have some integrity and fire this crum
before he does more damage.
In Champaign, White's name is held in the utmost reverence. That's one
interesting community. For anyone who ever watched Batman and Robin on
television, the overriding theme was that crime doesn't pay.
Here's a trivia stumper for you: who was the head coach at Illinois before
White arrived? Michigan's assistant head coach and widely respected
defensive coordinator, Gary Moeller.
Moeller left Michigan in 1977 for the Illinois job and in three years put
together a miserable record of 6-24-3. Moeller was unceremoniously dumped
by newly hired Athletic Director, Neale Stoner.
Moeller was in the midst of a five-year contract but Stoner claimed that
progress was not being made. At the time, several sources close to the Illini
program admitted that Moeller was indeed doing a fine job. But Illinois was
getting destroyed and Moeller was sent packing back to Ann Arbor.
Should Bo Schembechler step down from his current job, Moeller would
take over.
Having been with Schembechler since Bo's Miami of Ohio days, Moeller
was, and is cut in the 'honesty in athletics' mold.
Says a Michigan insider, "Illinois has a good football team, but they go
about it in all the wrong ways." And said Schembechler, "I'm not going to
get into that this week," when asked about his position on Illinois. "I think
everybody knows where I stand on intercollegiate athletics."
Schembechler had known for the last couple of years that the Illinois
program would get socked. But it was not Schembechler's job to put the Illini
on probation.
Illinois comes into Michigan Stadium tomorrow with a fine collection of
talent. They may beat Michigan, they may not. But no matter the outcome,
Illinois cannot go to a bowl game following the season. One should
realistically expect the NCAA to stiffen its penalty against Illinois. But
whether it does or not, Mike White and his ill-conceived program are the
biggest losers of all.

day by the United Press International.
In a balloting conducted of UPI
baseball correspondents from each
major league city, Anderson won the:
AL's top manager honors by a 3-1
margin over Billy Gardner of the Min-
nesota Twins while Frey was an easy
winner over Davey Johnson of the New
York Mets in the NL voting.
"No manager wins awards - only
players win the awards for them," said
Anderson. "I've never.seen a last place
manager win Manager of the Year. The
players win that award for the manager.
It's a special award and I am grateful
for it because my players won it for
me."

TORONTO (AP) - Center Darryl
Sittler of the Detroit Red Wings was
reported in good condition yesterday
after an operation for a fractured right
cheekbone he suffered during a
National Hockey League game Wed-
nesday night against the Toronto Maple
Leafs.
Meanwhile, Sittler's father, Ken,
remained in fair condition in the same
hospital after suffering a heart attack
while attending the game, won by the
Maple Leafs 6-1.
Nuggets' Cross out
DENVER (AP) - The Denver
Nuggets yesterday placed forward
Russell Cross on their suspended list,
saying he needs a few weeks of
rehabilitative work on an old knee in-
jury.
Cross, who played at Purdue, was
the sixth player chosen in the 1983 NBA
college draft and played in 45 games for
Golden State last year. He was waived
by them last week and signed a con-
tract with the Nuggets last Saturday.

defensive strategy and trying to
