Bill Frieder opened the door of the Basketball
402 class to find 14 bodies slumped over their
desks. Frowning at the sight, he flicked on the
lights, slammed the door, and stomped to the
"Glad to see y'all could make it," he drawled
sarcastically while erasing the board with a cloth.
"Now I don't want any PE 402 articles being
written about this class, so wake your butts up."
"I said, WAKE UP," yelled Frieder,
unconsciously throwing the cloth over the
shoulder of his sportcoat, leaving a trail of chalk
dust down the back. A giggle leapt out of the
back of the room.
"Robinson, that cute face of yours will only
get you so far in life. FRONT AND CENTER!"
Sophomore Rumeal Robinson gracefully
jumped over a couple desks containing still-
"OK, partner," said Frieder. "With an attitude
like that, how do you expect to pass?"
ROBINSON gave Frieder a quizzical look.
"Pass? Pass? Heck, just put me in the same
county as my buddy Mills, and I'll pass, no
"You aren't suggesting passing through
cheating?" said Frieder.
"Nah," said Robinson, shrugging. "More like
passing through the defense, through my legs,
behind my back... Whatever it takes."
In the back of the classroom, a head nodded in
THEeOLD CARD SHARK, trained to
catch the subtlest sleight of hand, moved toward
the motion. He didn't like what he saw.
"Rice," said Frieder, slowly moving through
the rows of chairs. "You know I don't allow food
and drink in this classroom."
Having seen this act for two years already,
Glen Rice ignored Frieder. The 6-7 junior sloshed
a doughnut around inside his coffee cup, knocked
the excess liquid off into the cup, and took a big
bite out of the doughnut.
"NO DUNKING," said Frieder, slamming the
cup to the ground.
"Aw, Coach," said the avid and artistic dunker.
"Let a guy have a little fun. With the easy tests
you've been giving us, a guy needs something to
keep his mind in tune. Look at the rest of these
guys. They're bored stiff."
FR I ED ER looked around. Robinson had
fallen back asleep, leaving Frieder and Rice to
bored by schedule
talk among themselves.
"Easy tests, huh? Boring, huh?" grumbled
Frieder. "What are you talking about? I take you
guys on a field trip to Alaska - "
Gary Grant shuddered in his sleep and muttered
something about Wildcats chasing him across the
"- I put you in a competition with some of
the nation's best andebrightest, and then I bring
you back home to take a few easy tests before the
big one in January. Is that so bad?"
He paused. Rice had fallen back asleep.
Frieder fumed. He threw the towel off his
shoulder in disgust and paced back and forth,
eying each of his students.
"I DON'T understand," he muttered to no
one in particular. "I work you guys hard all
through October and November, and now when I
let up on you a little bit, you tell me you're
bored. How is that going to help you? Where are
you guys going to stand when the Big Ten test
comes in January?"
Terry Mills rolled his head from his shoulder
and stared up at Frieder.
"Hey Coach, let up a little. We're sleepers -
can't you get that through your head? Just wait
till March. That's when the real test comes.
