anybody to discourage the use of
drugs by athletes.

ACCORDING TO 'EXPERTS':
Big Ten still Big Two
By RON POLLACK
Even though Iowa represented the Big Ten in the Rose
Bowl last season, the Big Two is anything but dead.
At least that's what pre-season college football magazines
seem to be saying. Street & Smith, Game Plan, Football Ac-
tion, College Football-The Professor's 1982 Guide To Win-
ning, Athlon's The Really Big Ten and Pigskin Preview have
all hit the newsstands and all pick Ohio State and Michigan to
finish one-two in conference play.
MICHIGAN IS predicted to top the conference in Football
Action and Athlon's The Really Big Ten. Ohio State is the
choice of Street & Smith, Game Plan, Pigskin Preview and
College Football-The Professor's 1982 Guide To Winning.
Illinois is picked third in all six publications. After that, the
magazines tend to differ in their selections although all place
Northwestern in the cellar.
College Football-The Professor's 1982 Guide To Winning
lists odds for the Big Ten race. They are as follows: Ohio
State (5-2), Michigan (7-2), Illinois (5-1), Wisconsin (6-1),
Purdue (6-1), Minnesota (6-1), Iowa (10-1), Indiana (20-1),
Michigan State (50-1) and Northwestern (1,000-1).
MICHIGAN WAS ranked in the Top 20 of all the magazines
(Athlon's did not have one). The highest the Wolverines were
ranked was sixth by Football Action. The lowest they were
rated was 17th by both Game Plan and Pigskin Preview.
A few Michigan individual players were also singled out for
attention by the magazines. Anthony Carter was named First
Team All-American on all the magazines that chose such a
team, except for Pigskin Preview which accorded that honor
to Tennessee's Willie Gault.
Also earning First Team All-American honors for
Michigan was Keith Bostic who was chosen by Street &
Wolverine performers given honorable mention status
were linebackers Robert Thompson (Street & Smith) and
Paul Girgash (Pigskin Preview), and quarterback Steve
Smith (Game Plan).
