Quick on the Draw
Byv Mike McGraw

Mets' Gooden named

Everyone hates Michigan .. .
... even refs at Ohio State

I t's always nice to have a few bad calls by the
officials on key plays whenever Michigan
loses. Then you can blame the loss on something
other than the Wolverines poor play.
Saturday in Columbus, though, Michigan didn't
play poorly at all and the refs blew several big
calls in the opposite direction. How much bigger a
moral victory can you achieve?
The refereeing atrocities began pretty early. On
a second-and-goal from the eight, Chris Zurbrugg
threw a pass into the endzone which was picked off
by Ohio State's Sonny Gordon in midair. The only
problem was that he landed two feet out of bounds
and apparently out of the vision of any of-
ficial-touchback Buckeyes.
In the third quarter with the score 7-3, Michigan
had the ball second-and-four at the OSU 19. The
Rose-Bowl starved crowd in excess of 90,000 was
making a lot of noise and Zurbrugg asked for an
official's time out because his signals couldn't be
heard. He didn't receive one and amidst the din, a
Wolverine offensive lineman moved and Michigan
was pushed back five yeards. Eventually the team
had to settle for a Bob Bergeronfield goal.
After Ohio State notched its second touchdown,
Sim Nelson caught a pass for 17 yards, but fum-
bled the ball away. The replays showed that
Nelson's kneesr were on the ground before the ball
came loose, although his body hadn't touched

down yet. But in college, you're down when the
knees touch. Nelson couldn't have gotten back up
and ran after that, so he shouldn't be able to fum-
ble either.'
All told, these errors resulted in one TD for the
Buckeyes and took away at least a field goal from
Michigan. I hope Brent and Ara were pointing out
this stuff on television.
Even though the Buckeyes are headed to
Pasadena for the first time since before anyone
can remember, they're going to have to live with
the fact that they should have lost to the
Wolverines. That ought to spoil their trip to
One thing about being from Michigan, no matter
where you go on the road for football, everyone
hates you. And if the home team wins, it's the
greatest thing that ever happened to these people
in their miserable lives.
Ohio State was a perfect example. For some
reason, everyone at that school has a deep inner
hatred for anyone or thing that comes from
Michigan. In Columbus, they throw things at
Michiganders, tell them they suck and burn their
cars. You have to wonder what kind of childhood
trauma caused this behavior.
Illinois last year was almost as bad. Those
people sat in their scumhole of a city and worked
themselves into a frenzy over Bo Schembechler

and his football team-even the Illinois players
and coaches participated. However, after they
won, the Illini seemed to be in too much shock over
actually going to the Rose Bowl to keep up the
"Muck Fichigan" chants. Apparently the daze
lasted on through bowl day.
I've already implied that Ohio State doesn't
deserve to go to the Rose Bowl. The team that does
is Wisconsin. Think about it. If the Badgers had
just hung on to the ball against Michigan, they
would have had an easy victory. They also lost at
home to Minnesota-you know that could have
been avoided. In the last four weeks, though,
Wisconsin has beaten OSU, tied Iowa, destroyed
Purdue and buried Michigan State. I think it can
make a solid claim to be the conference's best
team at this date.
But it just doesn't pay to go to a non-football
power school. They come up with their best team
in 20 years in dairyland and wind up in the Hall of
Fame Bowl playing Kentucky.
Speaking of bowls, remember how Muddy
Waters and his Cherry Bowl crew filled the papers
with predictions of the Big Ten runner-up against
a top Southeast Conference foe? Well, what did
they come up with for the Silverdome Showdown?
Michigan State versus Rutgers. Come on, that's
the worst bowl match-up since Great Lakes played
Mare Island in the 1919 Rose Bowl.

Rookie of
NEW YORK (AP) - Dwight Gooden of
the New York Mets, who blazed a
strikeout trail during the 1984 season
that erased the names of Herb Score
and Sam McDowell from the record
books, was named National League
Rookie of the Year yesterday.
Gooden's selection by the Baseball
Writer's Association of America gave
the Mets the league's rookie selection
for the second straight season. Right
fielder Darryl Strawberry' was the 1983
NL rookie.
Gooden received all but one of the fir-
st place votes, totaled 118 points, and
was the only player mentioned on all 24
ballots. Philadelphia second baseman:
Juan Samuel finished second with 62
points and Los Angeles pitcher Orel

the Year
Hershiser was third with 15 points.
Gooden, who finished second to Rich
Sutcliffe of the Chicago Cubs in the NL
Cy Young voting, struck out 276 batters
in 218 innings for the Mets, breaking the
rookie record of 245 set in 1955 by Score,
of the Cleveland Indians.
Gooden, who turned 20 last Friday,
was the youngest player in the league
last season.
He also broke the major league
record for strikeout ratio, fanning an
average of 11.39 batters per nine in-
nings. The old record was 10.71 by
Cleveland's McDowell in 1965.
Gooden's earned run average of 2.60
was second in the league only to the 2.40
posted by Alejandro Pena of the Los
Angeles Dodgers.

Grapplers gain Ohio Open victory

Michigan wrestling coach Dale Bahr
might not admit to it, but after wat-
ching his team demolish all the com-
petition and finish first at the Ohio Open
in Dayton last weekend, he has to think
that he has one of the top six or seven
teams in the country. Consider the
" This is Michigan's first team vic-
tory in the ten-team tournament during
Bahr's six year reign, and its first since
* MICHIGAN defeated Wisconsin
which was sixth in the nation last year;
Michigan State, which placed second in
in the Big Ten; and Ohio State.
" Senior All-American Joe Mc-
Farland remained undefeated for the
season after winning the 134-pound
division. Bahr said of McFarland, "Joe
looked really good, but we've come to
expect that from him."

" John Fisher also remained un-
defeated after winning his weight class
at 126 pounds. Fisher became the first
Michigan freshman to raise his record
to 10-0 since McFarland did it five years
ago. Commenting on Fisher's im-
pressive performance, Bahr said, "He
wrestled like a senior would. He's an
outstanding wrestler who adds a great
deal to our team."
" Heavyweight Kirk Trost finished
second, losing for only the first time
this year. That loss in the finals,
however, was to Matt Ghaffarri, an
alternate on this year's Olympic team,
who has used up all his college
eligibility and is unable to wrestle in
dual meets.
" Junior Scott Rechsteiner placed
second at 177 pounds; losing a close 5-4
decision in the finals.

" Tony Latora (150) was forced to for-
feit his semi-final match due to a
collarbone injury. He was subsequently
dropped down to sixth place. Latora's
injury is not serious.
* Junior Rickey Moore (142) and
senior Bill Elbin placed third and fourth
respectively and Bahr was happy with
both performances. Elbin usually
wrestles at 177 but is being moved up
due to Rechsteiner's success. Moore is
coming off a fine 13-6 sophomore
Bahr was not especially pleased with
the tournament officials. "We usually
don't get any breaks from Ohio of-
ficials," he said. Bahr referred to the
penalty point Rechsteiner was assessed
in the finals for stalling, which
ultimately was the winning margin in
the 5-4 decision.
