Perles picks transfer QB
Former Bruin Johnson takes over the reins

Magic set
to wdhis
SWcollege
sweetheart
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Will
she say "I take you Earvin" or "I
take you Magic?"
Either way, Detroit native
Earletha Kelly and Los Angeles
Lakers star Magic Johnson again are
planning to wed - this time
Saturday in Lansing, Johnson's
hometown.
The couple met while both were
students at Michigan State. Johnson
said they remained an item over the
years, but just were delaying the
jump into marriage.
The Rev.'Melvin Jones, pastor of
Union Missionary Baptist Church
in Lansing, said Monday he will
officiate at a wedding ceremony for
the two Saturday evening.
The Detroit Free Press Tuesday
also quoted an unidentified relative
of Johnson's as saying the two
would be married Saturday.

As Michigan enters this week
facing the unenviable task of play-
ing No. 7 Notre Dame, the rest of
the Big Ten's schedule resembles a
bakery- in other words, lots of
cupcakes.
Michigan State leads the way,
squaring off aginst the Chippewas
of Central Michigan. However, the
Spartans don't want to apologize
for this apparent mismatch. They
could use a warm-up game to adjust
to their new quarterback, Bret
Johnson.
Michigan State coach George
Perles unveiled Johnson as his
choice to fill the starting role in a
made-for-television performance on
Perles' weekly program, "The
George Perles Show." The jury is
still out on possible Emmy nomina-
tions.
Johnson, who started his rookie
year at UCLA before transferring
to State,edged out Tim Miller for
the job. Many suspected that
Johnson's experience would give
him an edge over the competition,
which also included Michigan high
school legend Mill Coleman.
However, Perles said the decision
was not based on any one factor.
"In the time we had, it was an
even race," Perles said. "It was just
a gut feeling you have and you go
with it."
Perles is not afraid to go back on
the decision, and he plans to play
both Johnson and Miller against the
Chippewas on Saturday.
"We will evaluate it through
the season," Perles said. "If one of
our quarterbacks have a nick or a
sprain or is not having the hot hand,
then we'll go to the other one."
Perles does have some reserva-
tions about the effects a two-quar-
terback situation could have on the
team.
"I realize a quarterback contro-
versy is not the most ideal thing to
have in the community because

coaches, players, and fans all choose
up sides," the Spartan coach said.
"But I revert back to Lombardi and
he said, 'If you win, it doesn't mat-
ter. If you lose there's going to be
criticism so what difference what
they're criticizing?' I'm just trying
to do what's best for Michigan
S tate."
Despite being heavy favorites
against Central, the Spartans are
trying not to take the Chippewas
too lightly.
We have nothing but the highest
respect for Central," Perles said.
"They have a lot of their players re-
turning, and they'll play with all
kinds of emotion. We'll give them
the same respect that we give every-
one."
FOR OPENERS: Three other Big
Ten teams are opening their seasons
this weekend. Minnesota hosts San
Jose State, and Rice will pay a visit
to Northwestern. Meanwhile, Wis-
consin kicks off its campaign with
Western Illinois.
STATE RIVALRY: After its

lopsided victory over Hawaii, Iowa
squares off with their local rivals,
the Iowa State Cyclones. The Hawk-
eyes are an 11-point favorite, but
coach Hayden Fry expects a battle.
Iowa State defeated Eastern Ill-
inois, 42-13, to open the season.
"No one on our football team is
complacent when we play Iowa
State," Fry said. "It gives people
the bragging rights, and the coffee
talk in the state of Iowa is pretty
heavy."
