Editing and commenting are done by Gas Schrader, Gazette sports editor Dear Otis: As you are probably aware, in the Big Ten the three major sports ended up in a tie. The Big Ten used three different methods of determining the champions. In football it, was a vote by the athletic directors, which is quite fair. In basketball there was a playoff game on a neutral court. In baseball it was decided by tho number of runs scored when the two teams met. This is not the least bit fair, as teams early in the season are apt to make mistakes. Just one mistake could cost the entire championship. I feel the Big Ten should get together and decide on one method to determine champions in all sports. EDWARD F. MURPHY 304 Ronalds street, Iowa City NOTE: It was an interesting coincidence that the Rig Ten football, basketball and baseball races ended in championship ties, Ed. hilt we don’t believe ifs necessary to have the same system for deciding which team should qualify for post-season play. For instance, football couldn’t very well have a playoff, as basketball does, and it wouldn’t be very practical for baseball, either. You arc still hearing echoes of what Michigan Coach Ro Schembechler had to say about the athletic directors’ vote in football, and vet you and I agree it seemed “quite fair.’’ All we can say for the baseball system is that it is slightly better than flipping a coin to decide which team goes to the NCAA playoffs. Rut we don't have a better solution. Does anyone?—-Gus. C.R.SOO Big Success To the editor: We are proud and appreciative of our many parents, students and friends of Washington high school who so willingly pitched in to help make our recent '‘Cedar Rapids 500” such a success. Countless friends, over 250 parents and over IOO students worked together in many different jobs for a common cause we all believe in: The Warrior athletic program. Our enthusiastic thanks to all these helping hands, and a special thanks to the community for their support of the “C.R. 500”. We feel everyone will benefit from this activity. DUANE ANTON President, Washington Athletic Club NOTE: We understand your group netted several thousand dollars from the project, Duane. Most booster clubs are having a tough time staying in the black these days, especially now that girls’ sports are coming on with such popularity—Gus. Dear Gus: Seven Lion Lettermen Return Seven returnin'] lettermen give Linn-Mar's baseball foam a solid nucleus of experienced players. The veterans include (back, from left) Brad Brcneman, Gary Efael, Dane Lyon, Bill Stone and Greg Cantaberry; and (front) Dana Lyon and Dave Wood. Outfield Big Problem for Linn Mar Jabbar Hurt Bucks I think the officiating (in the NBA championship series) was very bad. Most of the time, when he turned to do a sky hook, Jabbar charged right into Cowcns. And Jabbar was always knocking Cowens around. Then that one game I kept count of the fouls, and Jabbar should have been the one fouled out instead of Cowcns. I think the reason Boston won the series was the Bucks always threw the ball to Jabbar to shoot. He’s not really as good as Oscar Robertson. JIM HOLLAN 2325 B avenue NE NOTE: We must conclude you’re not a charter member of the Kareen Abdul-Jabbar Fan club. Jim. He’s some gun, though, isn’t he? If the Bucks had been able to use their top guards fully, we think it might have proved the difference-- Gus. By Steve Herreid Linn-Mar high’s 1974 baseball team will boast exceptional squad depth, a large pitching corps, and an experienced infield. But there exists one area which boss man Sam Kielty j knows must be filled if the; Lions are to be title contenders in the Fast Central Iowa loop. “We’re strong behind the plate and up the middle ibis season, but our outfield is very questionable,” summarized the third-year mentor. Graduated from the squad of a year ago are outfidelders Dan Sindelar and Bob Peterson, both of whom were named to the allconference team, and Jeff Schaeffer, who was the club’s leading RHI man. Still, Kielty is optimistic, and he has a returning nucleus of seven lettermen with which to build around. Heading up the group is Dana Lyon, a junior hurler who was 5-1 3 last season and owns a 1-0 mark thus far this season. Other letterwinners include third baseman Dane Lyon, who is a junior; senior Dave Wood, who will catch; senior pitcher Bill Stone; shortstop Greg Cantaberry, second baseman Brad Brenneman and outfielder Gary Etzel, all seniors. Lyon (Dana} set a school record by striking out twelve ; in Linn-Mar’s opener with Lisbon. which the Lions won. 3-1. He and Stone, joined by sophomore Brad Reid, should provide a solid pitching staff in the coming season. Kielty sees last year’s conference winner and runnerup as the teams to beat in this campaign. “Dyersville Beckman and Benton Community have to be given the edge because of their spring schedules,” he said, “and Prairie will be tough, too. But I would like to think that we would be in the middle of the pack, if not higher.” In addition to Reid, five other sophomores have been impressive' thus far, and could be a contributing factor as the season progresses. The list includes Jack Chambers, Brian Barnes, Von Hollingsworth, Bob Sindelar, and Dan Kosmach. ‘ lf lf* *Opw»' yrwll And ll In G»-zettn dawned!
