Fall sports scene..
. ,. you figure it out
N THE PAST, it's been my contention on these pages that Spring is the
1sporting world's season in the sun, but it's time to qualify that conten-
tion. Autumn at least runs a close second and by November, Fall's spor-
Alng foliage may just overrun professional basketball and hockey's warm
weather, playoff fever.
Highly significant, huh? Anyway, here are some October musing for a
M ,.ainy Wednesday . . .
_ This ranking nonsense has to stop. After barely escaping a fourth-
week upset to Lorenzo White, Bobby McAllister, and the Michigan State
Spartans, Iowa has again captured number one. Before sliding by the
Spartans, the Hawkeyes tore apart powerhouses Northern Illinois,
Drake, and Iowa State. Add to that Barry Switzer's Oklahoma Sooners
wVho, before redeeming themselves Saturday by destroying Kansas State,
"pummeled" Minnesota, 13-7, last week. They surely deserve number
two. The kicker of course is Indiana, now enjoying UPI's number 20 spot.
-Wes, that's Indiana. You figure it out.
" Now that the Eastern Division baseball races are over, the Yanks and
',Mets deserve honorable mention for gallant efforts. Many, however,
found the battle of New Yorkers deserving of more attention. After
ridiculing other cities for their losses, New Yorkers in the last month sud-
denly were ripping into New Yorkers. How refreshing.
" A friend suggested the other day that this University could con-
ceivably boast three number-one teams - football, basketball, and
baseball. Whether the University has three number-one teams is another
" Flash! The Lions are 3-2 and the Dead Wings, I mean Red Wings are a
potential playoff thorn with the addition of a few highly paid recruits.
How things have changed, huh Spark?
1 Take a gander at the NFL standings, and then look again. Chicago,
the Jets, the Browns, and yes the Kansas City Chiefs are all atop their
ivisions. The eye-opening fun stops of course with the New England
'Patriots. Suffice it to say Ben Dreith is evil. So is ( )ucky Dent, for that
' Someone was bragging to me the other day about "the reigning world
champions of baseball - Tramm, Gibby, Lance, Senor (Gut) Smoke,
etc. "Wow! There's a well-founded boast.
" It's time a list enumerating what people love so much about Ivy
League football was written. Other than cerebral standouts basing their
ivelihood, here are a few items for consideration: Seagrams (a name
synonomous with) Wine Cooler, Suede Wallabees, Affected Speech, Bach,
and of course thick, heavy Shetlands.
" I think everyone will agree "Turf Tamer" is the hottest, hippest thing

slaving for King George, wasn't the fleet outfielder more exciting when
he played Billy Ball and pilfered second and third base twice a game?
" The Cardinals' John Tudor is another story, however. In Boston,
Tudor often pitched well, but the team never hit The Wall when it hap-
'pened. In St. Louis, Tudor is a Cy Young candidate. Yeah, the turf
probably has nothing to do with it.
" This Katrina and the Waves business at Michigan Stadium has gotta
end. The band deserves a standing "O" for its showtime antics, but just
how many Wolverine fans want to hear the annoyingly poppish twang of
"Time to feel good?" That's usually taken care of by the students and
" One final note: three weeks ago in this space I talked of cocaine in
major league baseball. Thanks to all who provided feedback, especially
the eloquent essayist who reviled me with bodily function insults and
brilliantly childish wit. I enjoyed it.
IDOMIR, MADILL, AND MAGE LINK TOGETHER
Roommates pace women golfers
By JEFFREY RUSH
A wise man once mused that "there is no stronger bond
of friendship than a mutual enemy." Though the sport of
golf is a slower paced sport in comparison to many other
sports played by Americans, the overriding goal of
defeating such perennial rivals as Michigan State and In-
diana has melded together strong friendships on the
Wolverine women's golf team. Perhaps the best example
to be seen is that of teammates Jan Idomir, Valerie Madill
and Terri Mage. They are roommates whose friendships'
roots date back a decade.
Madill and Mage both came out of the Flint area, and
have a long history of Flint junior golf behind them.
Luckily for both, they were able to overcome questionable
beginnings to their golfing careers.
MADILL RECALLS her introduction to golf as merely
tagging along with her older brother. "My brother played
in Flint Junior Golf, so my mom had to take me along,
too." Like Madill, Mage's start was as a result of family
prodding, and she too played in the Flint juniors. It was in
the Flint juniors that these two first came to know each
"I remember playing together when we were about ten
years old," said Madill, "although we never got to play
directly against each other." The two played every Mon-
day during the summer, and at the end of the year par-
ticipated in match play tournaments. Without boasting,
Madill conceded that she was a top player back then,
having won each of the various levels of competition.
"I always wanted to beat her," said Mage. "She was
always the one to beat."
NOT FAR AWAY, Idomir was working on the form that
made her an all-state selection at East Lansing High
School. When she decided to forsake staying at home and
attending MSU, the stage was set for the three to meet.
Mage emphasized that the friendship was slow in the
making at first. "The only time I saw Jan and Val the first
two years was when we were playing." Yet the fact that
they all lived in Betsy Barbour and did spend so much
time together practicing led to their eventual friendship
and later their status as roommates.
Now it is rare to find one of the three without the other.
The three emphasized the positive aspects of having each
other around, stating that it actually helps their golf
"It helps that they are around," says Mage, "because
we can talk about the attitude and the play of the team."
Coach Sue LeClair noted that the camaraderie of the three
is exhibited by the whole team, and that the positive in-
fluence of the friendships spill over from the golf green to
the chalkboard green. She said, "One of them is very
organized. She keeps them together as far as school is
concerned. They all help each other a lot."
After a weekend which saw several individual successes
for the women's golf team, Coach Sue LeClair looked for,
ward to next spring's Big Ten championships. The golfers
are going to have to help keep each other on top of their
games, as Indiana has been tough all year. LeClair is con-
fident, however, noting that, "they're all starting to play
