Holiday Bowl blues? ....
... only for the ignorant
W ould you believe that this column was going to be devoted to the world
of professional wrestling? It was. Professional wrestling is a sad
commentary on the lower-middle class in-20th century American society.
But, alas, what can I do to change the values of those who live and die with
professional wrestling? Nothing.
There is one thing, though, that I am quite capable of doing. And that is
straightening out you poor, misguided, upper-middle class LS&A students
who know a pathetically small amount about the world of big-time college
In this past Thursday's Daily, our glorified opinion page ran a real piece of
garbage in the top slot, entitled, "Holiday Bowl: Bad Timing
An LS&A senior submitted the opinion, highly critical of Michigan's elec-
tion to accept a bid to the December 21 bowl game. Complained the poor
"An event like this hurts the reputation of the University. When the image
of this institution is hurt, your chance of getting a job when competing with
others of different schools is significantly decreased.
"I am outraged that Michigan accepted the bowl bid to play in the Holiday
The spoiled brat is angered because with the Wolverines competing in the
Holiday Bowl, his market value will be significantly decreased.
I am now going to correct this lacking individual and hopefully all you
doubters will have a little more food for thought.
Mr. Opinion blasted Michigan's director of athletics Don Canham,
because the players and band members making the trip to sunny San Diego
have to reschedule all final examinations occuring after December 17.
Big deal! Rescheduling a final exam is about as difficult as getting accep-
ted as an undergraduate to Eastern Michigan.
For the majority of band members, the trip to California will offer an un-
matched experience. Band director Eric Becher certainly won't have
problemsgetting people to make the trip. As a matter of fact, Becher can't
take all the people he would like to.
Mr. Opinion challenged Canham on failing to uphold his policy of not per-
mitting a bowl game to interfere with academics. I know for a fact, that Mr.
Opinion has probably never met Canham and certainly never discussed
"Michigan bowl policy" with the head hor.cho.
Several years ago, before Michigan had built its indoor practice facility,
the Wolverines flew out to Pasadena a full two weeks before the January 1
Rose Bowl. In those days, final exam conflicts presented themselves and
were resolved. I have confidence that the University can accommodate
anyone who needs to be, in this case, a team of football players and a group
of band members.
It might be interesting to note, that Michigan football players NEVER
miss classes to travel to away games. The team departs Ann Arbor Friday
afternoon and returns immediately following the Saturday afternoon battle.
Not wanting to leave final exams alone, Mr. Opinion compares Michigan
to seven other schools, which he alleges refused to go to the Holiday Bowl
because of such final exam conflicts.
With the questionnable exception of Notre Dame and definitely Wisconsin,
don't anyone ever compare Michigan's standard of excellence with such
mediocre institutions as: Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Penn
State and Purdue. These universities are not worthy of comparison.
By the way, the Holiday is still considered a second-rate bowl. Oklahoma,
Oklahoma State and Nebraska had far more attractive bowl options and for a
far larger payoff. Michigan will always be the choice over schools like
Wisconsin and Purdue, for simple reasons of reputation and tradition. Notre
Dame was destined for the Aloha Bowl and Penn State simply suffered an
embarrassing season, although not quite as bad as either Alabama or Pit-
The Rose it is not, but the Holiday Bowl is a wonderful opportunity for the
1984 Wolverines. A victory over top-ranked Brigham Young would only add
to the luster of Wolverine tradition.
I would be amazed if any current student is denied employment because of
Michigan's presence in the Holiday Bowl. Don't be ashamed of your univer-
sity, Mr. Opinion, be ashamed of yourself.
