"We need these coaches on the
field, but more than that off the field
to help with (the players') social
lives, to help with their motivation
towards going to school and gradu-
taing and also helping with prob-
lems they have at home," Perles
said. "If money is more important
than the athlete, then it's good to cut
the personnel. If we're looking for
more help for our people, that's my
platform, that we need all the help
that we can get for these young
Even though it isn't a popular
position, Mackovic agreed with Per-
"I feel like I did last Tuesday at
this time when we were being de-
feated by Clemson," Mackovic said.
"The restricted earnings position will
not encourage young people to get
an advanced degree. Many of our=
graduate assistants come in with
some intentions to be a coach, but
with many intentions just to get an
advanced degree."
To eliminate the restrictions
against formal negotiations between
universities and representtives of

post-season bowl football games.
This was passed because the rules
have been largely ignored in recent
years. Ironically, this came after a
decision on Monday by bowl repre-
sentatives to abide by the third Sun-
day in November before negotiating
with prospective candidates. Other-
wise, the bowl would face a
$250,000 penalty.
The bowl officials did this in re-
sponse to a formation of a three-man
panel by the NCAA to look into the
idea of a post-season bowl draft of
teams in the order of most to least
money offered by the bowl. The
committee will also examine other
ways to improve the bowl system to
enable better competition.
The two proposals that didn't
pass were attempts to limit the
number of financial aid awards to
football and ice hockey players.
Iowa delegate Hunter Rowlings
III was pleased with the direction of
the conference thus far: "I think in
many cases the presidents have said
to their athletic directors, 'We're go-
ing to get it done this time.' I think
the athletic directors have come
aboard. To me, that's the most
promising thing that I've seen so

Swimmers all work, no surf

by Ken Sugiura
Daily Sports Writer
Like Greg Brady before them, the
Michigan men's swimming team
traveled to Hawaii with plans for
more than rest and relaxation.
Fortunately, the Wolverines fared
significantly better than the ill-fated
surfer in competition with the
Michigan took breaks from their
training to compete in a dual meet
with the University of Hawaii and in
the Rainbow Invitational, whose 13-
team field included Big Ten rivals
Wisconsin and Iowa.
The Wolverines faced off with the
Rainbow Warriors December 30, and
despite a weakened roster, the maize
and blue swam away with a 130-103
win to run their dual meet record to
Mike Barrowman, Eric
Wunderlich, and Eric Namesnik were
among the missing, as they were off
in Perth, Australia fine-tuning their
strokes and focusing on the World

Championships being held this
week. Early results from Down
Under include a second-place finish
from Namesnik, breaking his own
American record time, and a fifth-
place from Wunderlich in the 100
The divers were left to guard the
fort in Ann Arbor, so Hawaii was
spotted a sizable advantage, scoring
all the points in the two diving
events. Even the coaching ranks
were depleted, as head coach Jon
Urbanchek accompanied the trio to'
coach the American squad down
Junior Brian Gunn went three-for-
three on the day in leading the
Wolverine attack. Gunn hit the wall
first in his two individual events,
clocking a lifetime-best 9:19.04 in
the 1000 freestyle, 1:51.60 in the
200 butterfly, and anchored the
victorious 800 freestyle relay of
Scott VanAppledorn, Eric Bailey,
and Rodney VanTassell to a time of

At the Rainbow Invitational,
Michigan competed in only the first
half of the two-day meet, and trailed
Wisconsin after day one by a score
of 118 to 87. The Wolverines
copped four first places, led again by
Gunn. With victories in the 500
freestyle and 100 butterfly, Gunn
was the high scorer for the first half
of the meet. In addition to Gunn, the
200 medley relay team and Rodney
VanTassell in the 200 freestyle took
home first places.
However, the primary purpose
was not to compete but to train. And
train. And train. With the bulk of
the season still yet to come,
including dual meets with No. 3
Stanford and No. 9 Cal-Berkeley and
the SMU Invitational all in January,
the Wolverines looked to get plenty
of yardage under their belts.
"It's going to be tough training.
That's the whole purpose is to get a
base for the final push of the
season," senior Jirret Winter said
before departing to Hawaii. "It'll be


really tough."
Winter was expecting to put in
around 4 hours of practice daily
including Christmas and New Year's
