Michigan bowl picture unclear
By MIKE MCGRAW
The Rose Bowl may be quite a longshot, but a large
number of lesser bowls have got their eyes on Michigan
should it fail to win the conference title.
The official date to extend bowl bids isn't until next
Saturday, November 24 at 6:00 p.m. but the Wolverines
should have a good idea of where, if anywhere, they will
go to spend the holidays after playing Ohio State Satur-
SHOULD Michigan upset the Buckeyes and finish 7-4,
Don Canham and Bo Schembechler will probably have a
great deal of invitations to sort through. Bowls that have
expressed interest in the Wolverines include the Holiday,
Aloha, Peach, Liberty and Hall of Fame.
"If Michigan wins we'd be especially interested," said
Stan Bates of the Holiday Bowl. "We've always been in-
terested in Michigan and Ohio State."
The Holiday Bowl has a great need to come up with a
good team because it would be playing against currently
undefeated and number-three ranked Brigham Young in
San Diego on December 21.
AMONG THE other bowls that are glaring hard in
Michigan's direction, the Peach Bowl in Atlanta could be
a prime candidate. The Peach's television contract with
CBS ends after this year and would like a big TV draw
from the Big Ten to get the ratings up.
Another possibility is Memphis' Liberty Bowl, which
last year took Notre Dame with a 6-5 record. Like the
Peach, this bowl will probably entertain a Big Ten team
such as Iowa (6-3-1), Purdue (6-4), Wisconsin (6-3-1),
Michigan State (6-4) or Michigan.
The Fiesta and Sun Bowls are still watching the
Wolverines, but are longshots.
ONE BOWL that is making no secret of its desire for
Michigan is the Aloha Bowl in Hawaii. Even with a loss in
Columbus, the Wolverines could be invited to play there.
"Michigan with 6-5 is like others with 8-3," said Aloha
executive vice president Mackay Yanagisawa. "We're
definitely interested in them. But I think they're going to
beat Ohio State."
The problem with an Aloha invite is that after Michigan
battled UCLA in the Bluebonnet Bowl in 1981, the Big Ten
and Pac Ten decided to bar teams of the two conferences
from playing each other in a bowl other than the Rose -
and the prime choice of the Aloha people right now is
As for the Cherry Bowl, don't count on it. If the
Wolverines beat OSU, they'll accept a bid from an
established bowl and if they lose, the Cherry Bowl people
would probably want to match Michigan State against a
Southeast Conference opponent.

OSU athletic director
By PHIL NUSSEL
For 18 years Rick Bay devoted him-
self to Michigan. He aided his alma
mater by directing external activities
of the Alumni Association after many
years of work in the athletic depar-
tment. No one loved Michigan more
Today, he is the athletic director at
IS HE A traitor? A turncoat? That
depends on how you look at it.
Bay, who took the job at Ohio State
last May after serving as athletic direc-
tor at Oregon for three years, explained
grateful for my friends.
"But once you get out into the
professional world, there are other
places too that are outstanding and
command a great deal of respect. Ohio
State is one of those places.
there's no question that I'm a Buckeye
now. I continue to have a great fondness
for the Wolverines except on occasion
when they play Ohio State."
This week will be especially tough on
Bay in that he will be receiving flak

why he donned the scarlet and gray
"The Ohio State job represented a
unique opportunity," Bay said Monday.
"There's just a handful of jobs when it
comes to athletic administration that
are really special. Ohio State represen-
ted a step up for me."
BAY'S ATHLETIC career at
Michigan began during his freshman
year in 1962, when he was an important
member of the wrestling team. In 1964,
he won All-America wrestling honors
and in 1965 he was named the Outstan-
ding Wrestler in the Big Ten. He never
lost a dual match in the Big Ten in three
In 1970, he became Michigan's head
wrestling coach after working as an
assistant under the legendary Cliff
Keen. Bay led the Wolverines to a Big
Ten title in 1973 and to a second-place
finish in the nation the following year.
For the next six years, he worked for
the Alumni Association, and
culminated his Michigan career by
successfully directing the $2.6 million
fund raising campaign for the new
AFTER 18 YEARS of loyalty to the
maize and blue, Bay said he owes a
great deal to Michigan. But his loyalties
have changed now.
Bay explained: "First of all, I owe a
great deal to the University of
Michigan. There's no question about
that. I'll always begrateful for the
background I had at Ann Arbor and I'm
ACTUALLY, Bay's first "loyalty
clash" was with his mother, who
graduated from Ohio State with an
M.A. in Elizabethan Theater. When he
was at Michigan, his mother sent him
sympathy cards when Ohio State won
the fall classic. Likewise, she received
a card from him when the Wolverines
There are several factors that make
Bay unique as compared to most
athletic directors. First of all, he is one
of the few athletic directors to have had
this position in both the Pac Ten and the
He is also not from the football or
basketball establishments, like many of
today's other athletic directors are. He
believes this has helped him.
"I THINK it's helped me in my
overall perspective," he said. "I'm
very much aware of footballhand
basketball, but on the other hand,4
having been brought up through
wrestling, which is considered a non-
revenue sport, I have a greater sen-
sitivity for some of the frustrations that
coaches in the non-revenue sports suf-
A final reason why Bay is unique is
that he is very much a patron of the ar-
ts. He credited his mother's
background in theater for this cultural;
influence. Also, he claimed he goes to
New York three or four times a year to
see various theatrical productions.
One may think Bay's situation is very
unusual. But actually, several
prominent Wolverines can easily iden-
tify with this predicament. Bo Schem-
bechler was once Woody Hayes'
assistant at Ohio State and defensive
coordinator Gary Moeller was a player
Even the man who signed Bay's
degree at Michigan in 1965 could have
identified with this situation. Former
Michigan president Harlan Hatcher
was once on the Ohio State faculty.
It just goes to show, loyalties can
easily change, no matter who it is.

from both his old and his new friends.
But he is taking it all in stride. In fact,
he believes the clash of new and old
loyalties has made his job a lot of fun.
He joked that his new job has cost him
He explained: "I've said that I don't
have any friends anymore because all
my old friends are mad at me for going
to Ohio State, and that no one at Ohio
State likes me because I went to
Michigan. So I'm caught in the gap."
Why did the Yugoslavian national
team come all. the way from Europe
when they know they're going to get
slaughtered by the Michigan basketball
team? Of course, they wanted to get
their Griddes picks in.
Drazen Petrovic, the Yugo's star
guard, has already informed the Daily
that after he gets roughed up by Butch
Wade and his friends, he will turn in his
picks so that we can send him a free
small pizza from Pizza Bob's when he
wins. Do Yugoslavians eat pizza?
