All-around athlete

McMurtry won't go

By SCOTT G. MILLER
Greg McMurtry does not want to
become the next Bo Jackson.
Jackson, who plays for both the Na-
tional Football League's Los Angeles
Raiders and Major League Baseball's
Kansas City Royals, is the first athlete in
years to be under contract simultaneously
to two professional sports teams. Mc-
Murtry, a sophomore at the University,
also stars in both football and baseball.
But, he says, that won't always be the
case.
"I think I would much rather pick one
sport and try to be the best I can," said

McMurtry. "It's too much of a strain go-
ing from one game to another."
He will delay the straining decision of
which sport to pursue until the end of his
college career. Both professional football
and baseball teams are interested in the 6-
3, 200-pounder.
THE BOSTON RED SOX drafted
the Brockton, Mass., native on the first
round of the baseball draft last spring, but
McMurtry turned down a six-figure
contract. The Wolverines' center fielder
last season, he hit .299 and knocked in the
game-winning run in the Big Ten
championship game.

"He had an exceptional year considering
he started playing in January," said
Michigan baseball head coach Bud Mid-
daugh. "We feel fortunate to have him."
He also may go in the first round of the
football draft. Last year, the Sporting
News named McMurtry Freshman Re-
ceiver of the Year. His combination of
size, speed, and soft hands interests the
football scouts.
"McMurtry is a great first-round Na-
tional Football league prospect," said
Brockton high school coach Armand
Columbo about McMurtry while Michi-
gan recruited him. "He lacks no prerequi-

THE SPORTING VIES
By RICHARD EISEN
"Paging Dry Eisen to the operat-
ing room. Paging Dr. Eisen to the
O.R."
"Yes, nurse, what's the prob-
lem?"
"Doctor, it's that patient again,
the National Hockey League. It's
been in too many fights again and
now it's fighting for respectability."
"Yes, I see. It's gotten so bad that
the patient has developed a tumor."
"A TUMOR? Where?"
"Right there, nurse. It's in the
shape of Dave Brown. You know
- Dave Brown?"
"No."
"Where have you been, in a plas-
tic bubble? Dave Brown is a so-
called 'defensemnan' for the Philadel-
phia Flyers. Last week, he violently
and maliciously crosschecked New
York Ranger Tomas Sandstrom.
Sandstrom, totally unexpectingthe
cheap shot, had his neck viciously
snapped back and had to leave the
game on a stretcher. He hasn't
played the same since.
"The sad thing about all this is
that Brown only received a 15-game
suspension. If Brown had done this
on the streets of New York, he
would have been arrested for assault
and battery and faced a possible
prison sentence. Since he did it in a

The NHL is sick,
and the doctor is in

Flyers uniform during an NHL
game, he only received a 15-game
suspension. The patient has con-
tracted a very abnormal disease."
"BUT DOCTOR, what does
Brown have to say about all this?"
"He claims he was doing his job,
and the sad thing is that he's right.
You see, nurse, Brown is a type of
tumor that the NHL calls a n
'enforcer.' His job is solely to beat
the brains out of anyone beating his
own team. And the tumor is spread-
ing. Nearly every NHL team now
has an enforcer on its roster.
"What healthy league these days
has something called an enforcer?
Does baseball have a special type of
pitcher who comes into the game to
solely bean somebody in the head?
No. In order to stop the cancer from
spreading, the patient must impose
stricter punishments. The patient
can be such a graceful and beautiful
game if it weren't for this tumor."
"Hurry, Doctor. The patient is in
shock. Suggest something."
"OK, scalpel!
"First, penalize the coach, since it
is he who sends the enforcer out on
the ice to do the dirty work. Fine the
coach 10 to 20 grand, depending on
the seriousness of the penalty. Let
the coach think about whether he
wants to take his family to Disney-
world during the offseason before he
sends his goon out on the ice.
"Second, suspend the player for
three months and the entire playoffs
without pay. The goon will have to
sit and watch while his team goes
through the most important part of
its schedule.
"Third, if this player commits the

same crime again, he will be sus-
pended for an entire year- without
pay.
"Last, if the player hasn't learned
his lesson at this point, he deserves
to be banished from the patient for
life.
"Sutures, nurse. The patient is
cured for now."
"Do you think it can survive the
tumor, doctor?"
"Only if it takes the prescribed
medicine."

victorious
in Evanston
By STEVE ROEDER
Ann Colloton and Brent Lang led
the Michigan men's and women's
swimming teams to impressive
showings this past weekend in the
Big Ten relays in Evanston. Though
no scores were kept in the. seven-
school, 10-event meet, e a c h
Michigan team recorded five
victories.
Colloton's leadoff split of 1:06.1
in the 3 x 100 breaststroke race was
less than a second away from the
NCAA qualifying time. With
Jennifer Eck and Candice Quinn
swimming equally impressive times,
the Michigan breaststrokers
outdistanced the field by 10 seconds.
"It was a fun meet," said women's
coach Jim Richardson. "I think that
the breaststrokers did an excellent
job. Those were three good times for
the first meet.
