Flutie tops Wolverine-less
AP All-American squad

SAE crowned grid kings

The Associated Press announced
it's annual college football All-
America squad yesterday, and not,
surprisingly, Heisman Trophy win-
ner Doug Flutie highlighted the list.
Something else that wasn't too sur-
prising was that for the first time

since 1967, a Michigan player was
not named to either the first, second
or third AP teams. Middle guard Al
Sincich and linebacker Mike
Mallory were selected to the
Honorable Mention defensive unit by
AP.

The SAE's capped off a perfect 7-0
season by soundly thrashing the Phi
Delts in the Fraternity Class A cham-
pionship at the indoor football building.
With the win, SAE manager Tom Pahl
believes his fraternity has established
itself as a football powerhouse. "We've
reclaimed our football dominance,"
stated Pahl at a press conference af-
terwards. "For four of the last five
years we've made the finals of the foot-
ball playoffs."
Pahl may have a point. This year
SAE racked up 138 points while only
surrendering eight points-the lone Phi
Delt touchdown in the championship
game. In that game, SAE struck first on
an 18-yard aerial from quarterback
John Jennings to flanker Ken Hawk. Af-
ter a two point conversion pass from
Jennings to Joe Grusser, the SAE
defense dug in. Chris Fowler intercep-
ted an errant Phi Delt heave and rum-
bled 45 yards for what proved to be the

game-winning touchdown. However,
the Phi Delts did manage to break the
SAE's shutout string late in the game
on a 50-yard scoring strike from quar-
terback Tom Boylen to Doug Stewart.

Taylor. Taylor added that the game
was primarily a game of field position.
"They couldn't move the ball, but
neither could we," he said.
However, strong defense by Alpha
Phi Alpha eventually led to a touch-
down pass to flanker Ralph Williams.
Another opportunistic play by the Phi
'D' came when James Latham inter-
cepted a ball at Omega's 20-yard line
and then jittered his way into the en-
dzone. Latham's interception return
nailed the Omega's coffin and enabled
the Alpha's to end their season 4-2.
Law Gold 2, Orbitals I
Typical of their squad, the Gold
defeated the Orbitals in due
time-double overtime to be exact. Af-
ter nearly 75 minutes of play in the in-
tramural Class A soccer final, the
Gold's Andy Perrin broke a 1-i

stalemate with the game-winning boot:
that brought the Orbitals back down to
earth. Perrin's kick and Dave Cam-
pbell's earlier goal for the Gold enabled
the squad, made up entirely of law
students, to end the season unbeaten at
7-0-1.
MP & Boys 2, KSA 0
MP & Boys captured the intramural
class B soccer championship by
literally using their heads against the
Korean Students Association. The MP's
Chris Plummer headed in a goal on a
corner kick to get the Boys rolling..
Later on in the contest, Kevin Fularcykt
punted in the club's second goal. Team
manager Chris Neuguth claimed the
game was well played and well
refereed despite adverse weather con-
ditions.

While the SAE's and Phi Delt's were
mixing it up indoors, the fraternity B
championship turned into a defensive
struggle outdoors. The frigid cold made
it difficult to cutback, according to
Alpha Phi Alpha manager Kennie

Special to the Daily
MOUNT PLEASANT - Freshman forward Lorea Feldman
pumped in 20 points and grabbed six rebounds and Wendy
Bradetich scored 15 and had seven boards to lead the
Michigan women's basketball team to a 63-56 win over Cen-
tral Michigan last night.
The victory boosts the Wolverines' record to 3-1 and marks
their best start in a long time.
"WE REALLY had a great, great game up here," said
Wolverine head coach Bud Van De Wege. "It felt good to con-
tinue to win."
Both teams fought a see-saw battle in the first half, with
Michigan taking a 30-25 lead into the lockerroom.
The opening moments of the second half saw the struggle
continue, until the Wolverines ran off a 10-0 spurt and opened

their lead to 48-35 at 11:32.
THE MICHIGAN defense then held on and the offense
broke the Chippewas' press to lock up the win. Feldman was
a key factor for the Wolverines on both ends of the court.
"It was just an outstanding all-around game for Lorea,"
said Van De Wege. "She scored 20 points and took the ball in-
bounds against the press. What was really important was
that she handled the press well."
Junior guard Orethia Lilly added to the Wolverines cause
with 12 points and five rebounds and played a good floor
game,stealing the ball threetimes.FreshmanaKelly Beni-
ntendi also helped out, tossing in eight second-half points,,
four of them during the Wolverines' scoring burst.
Sylvia Odum and Latanya Cox paced Central with 13 and 11
points each.

DETROIT (AP) - John Ogrodnick
scored three third-period goals last
night, the last with 49 seconds
remaining, to lift the Detroit Red Wings
to a dramatic come-from-behind 7-6
National Hockey League victory over
the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Ogrodnick beat Maple Leafs' net-
minder Ken Wregget with a slapshot
from the top of the face-off circle for his
14th goal of the season to cap a five-goal
third-period outburst.
DETROIT trailed 6-2 after two
periods, but rallied on power-play
markers by Ogrodnick and Steve
Yzerman around Frank Cernik's third
of the season to cut the lead to 6-5 mid-
way through the final period.
The Maple Leafs grabbed a 3-0 first-
period lead on goals by Russ Courtnall,
Stewart Gavin and Borje Salming
before Brad Park and Lane Lambert
answered to cut the margin to 3-2. Bill

Yankees, Cubs make
first winter trade

HOUSTON (AP) - The New York
Yankees yesterday sent pitcher Ray
Fontenot and infielder-outfielder Brian
Dayett to the Chicago Cubs for four
players in the first trade of the 1984 win-
ter meetings.
In return for their two players, the
Yankees will receive Henry Cotto and
pitchers Rich Bordi and Porfi
Altamirano.
FONTENOT, 27, was 8-9 for the Yankees
with a 3.61 earned run average in 35
games last season, his first full one in
the major leagues. He appeared in 15

games for the Yankees with an 8-2
record in 1983.
Dayett, 27, split the 1984 season bet-
ween Columbus and the Yankees. He
batted .301 in 45 games at Columbus
and .244 in 64 games with the Yankees.
Hassey, 31, came to the Cubs from
Cleveland last year, hitting .333 in 19
games at Chicago. Cotto, 23, played in
105 games with the Cubs last year, bat-
ting .274.
Bordi and Altamirano, both right
handers, were used primarily in relief
by Chicago.

Bowling for dollars . ..
. it doesn't make cents
By STEVE HERZ
College Basketball is upon us as the Georgetowns, DePauls, Indianas
and maybe even Michigans around the nation battle for number one,
something becomes rather perplexing.
What's wrong with the NCAA? The college basketball champion is the
crowned prince from a field of the nations best. Even in baseball, the college
World Series is done in a playoff format. So what does football have? A
Fiesta here, an Orange there, even a Rose - what I'm referring to here is
the bowl system. Sure, there's a lot of tradition in the present bowl system.
but this isn't Fiddler on the Roof, it's football. Anyways, how much
tradition is there in the Liberty, Holiday, Aloha, and
most of the other bowls? The only bowls with a great deal of tradition are the
big four: Cotton, Sugar, Orange, and the Rose. The NCAA refuses to
relinquish the bowl system, yet it desparately needs a playoff in Division IA
system. I am suggesting that there is plenty of room for both.
The plan would call for the top sixteen teams around the country - based
on a system similar to the one in charge of the NCAA basketball tournament
- to be involved in a playoff for the National Championship. Sixteen teams
may sound like a small number at first, but over the past few years, one of
the biggest criticisms of the bowl system has been that mediocre teams have
been invited. We need not look any further than our own home to ask if the
Wolverines are worthy of a bowl bid this season. Most would say no.
is time a problem? Not really. Begin the playoffs the first weekend in
December and have the first round contests played at the sites of the eight
smallest bowl games. In this way the Independence Bowl, for example, held
in Shreveport, La. would not suffer in the least. In fact this bowl, like many
others, have had trouble selling tickets. Attach the words "NCAA College
Football Playoffs" to the tickets and undoubtedly sales and fan interest will
increase. And instead of bringing in a team with four losses such as Air For-
ce, there is a guarantee that two top twenty teams will be on the field.
The following week four more games will be played. Have these games
played at other bowl sites, (for example, the Cotton, Fiesta, Gator, and
Peach.) With the top eight teams remaining, an educated guess would be
that all four games would be sold out with little problem. The networks
could retain rights to the games and with an increased television audience
could command higher advertising dollars. Thus, the bowls could give more
money to the participants.
After cutting the field down to four teams, it would be about the second
week in December. Give each school two weeks off for final exams. In doing
this, it would also allow excitement to build for the games. Then, two Satur-
days later, in the Sugar Bowl and the Orange Bowl, have the NCAA
semifinals.
The winner of each game would head west to face off against each other in
the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day - the winner will be crowned National
Champion, not voted mythical national champion. Keep the annual Rose
Parade, the big crowd would still be there.
Most everybody agrees a change is needed. Every year some team
screams bloody murder. Maybe a change will come about this year. If
Brigham Young wins the Holiday Bowl, they will, most likely, be number
one. And Oklahoma, Florida, Washington, and even South Carolina will
stake its claim to the top spot.
The Cougars have played no one from the top twenty all season, thus their
12-0 mark has less value. If Brigham Young can win it this year by feasting
on a weak schedule, it will encourage schools to soften up their opponents.
The effect is already in motion. This year Ohio State's non-conference
schedule included Oregon State and Washington State, not exactly UCLA
and Washington. Second-ranked Oklahoma took on Texas. Nebraska, and
Oklahoma State, coming away with two wins and a tie. Meanwhile, BYU is
battling the Rocky Mountain boys from Utah and football powerhouses in
New Mexico and Wyoming.
But we can't blame BYU. It is not at fault, the system is faulty, it's an-
tiquated. Under the playoff system. Brigham Young could go into the
]playoffs undefeated, but like all other teams in the tournament, it would have
to win four games to be the National Champion. After winning a few games
