Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 30, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Now Ifs Moses Malone's Turn Cedar Rapids Gazette Instant Millionaire -UPI Telephoto Moses Malone, the 19-year-old prep star from Petersburg, Va., hoisted aloft a million-dollar contract Thursday in New York after signing with the Utah Stars of ABA. The 6-11 cager spurned a college career. ■Soil l*ep|kers % Gum Svhrndvr This is the second article on Gus Schrader’s Skywriters tour of Big Ten and Notre Dame football camps. Sunday: Minnesota Challenges. Poor Linemen MADISON, Wis. — Dearest Diary: 4:30 p.m. — We check into Madison’s Edgewater hotel, but you wouldn't recognize the place, Diary. It has a big, new wing built on it to the east, all overlooking beautiful Lake Mendota. Our thoughts are on anything but football as we watch the graceful sailboats skimming across the blue surface so quietly and cleanly. 4:40 p.m. — Wups, everybody checks in, that is, except us. Through a mixup, no room is assigned to us. Then bill MAREK we finally catch a break, as we get the room saved for Big Ten Commissioner Wayne Duke. Ifs big enough for a small scrimmage and hangs right over the lake. 5:15 p.m. — After a quick clean-up and filing the Northwestern column we wrote on the bus, we motor to Camp Randall to see the end of Wisconsin’s vigorous practice. 6:00 p.m. — About a dozen Badger players are tapped for interviews. We always hate to see the linemen passed up as the writers flock around the glamor barks, but we must confess we talked to QB Gregg Bohlig and halfback Bill Marek, too. Marek was Wisconsin’s wunderkind! last year. This half-Polish, half-German lad from Chicago wasn’t big enough to get a second look from Colorado and several other schools, but Coach John Jardine was glad Ho get him. “All I know' is I spent a lot of time talking him out of going to Notre Dame,” laughed Jardine. Marek was the first soph in Wisconsin history to gain over 1,000 yards. He got a whopping 1,207 for a five-yard avearge. He rolled up 203 yards against Iowa in 30 carries and scored four TDs in Wisconsin’s 35-7 win. Included were TD gallops of 45 and 32 yards. Why does everybody have his best day against poor old Iowa? Crewcut Convention 6:10 p.m. — We shift to Bohlig, the 5-11,172-pound QB who was No. 2 in Big Ten passing to Northwestern’s Mitch Anderson last year. But when they met, Wisconsin won a high-scoring thriller, 36-34, and Bohlig hit 13 of 16 for 253 yards and Anderson had only 12 of 24 for 207. ‘‘I felt I had to do better than Anderson if we were to beat Northwestern,” Bohlig says, “but for the season he had much better records than I.” We ask if the product of Eau Claire high has pro ambitions. “If they give me the opportunity,” he replies, “but the pros don’t go for guys as small as I am. I’m just lucky Wisconsin didn’t use the same requirements when they recruited me.” 6:45 p.m. — Wisconsin dispenses cocktails at its newly expanded “W Club” rooms under the stadium and Coach Jardine fields questions. It’s a pleasure for us short-haired 30-Lap Feature For Late Models A 30-lap feature for the late-models will wind up the regular stock car season Friday night at Hawkeye Downs.

Then came the period beginning with Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain. They were followed Lew Alcindor, now known Hareem Abdul-Jabbar. Now it’s Bill Walton—and possibly Moses Malone. The big difference between Malone and the other dominant centers is that they attended college before turning pro and “At similar stages of their careers, Moses Malone is better than Wilt Chamberlain in all phases of the game,” said Eddie Gottlieb, former owner of by I the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers as and now a league consultant. Ready To Play ‘ Malone is ready to play pro basketball right now,” said Marty Blake, who operates a scouting service for nearly all of the pro basketball teams. “A lot of baseball players turn pro Why he did not.

But how many fathers ever tinued the ambidextrous young-1 were offered $3 millier to play ster. “I am not a selfish player I know the importance of playing team ball. And that’s what I will try and do.” Malone said he patterns his play after Spencer Haywood, a former star in the ABA and now an All-Star with the Seattle Supersonics of the National Basketball Association. Not only does Malone have great size, but also tremendous freaks to come to Wisconsin, as both the athletic director (Elroy “Crazylegs” Kirsch) and Jardine look great with their old-fashioned crewcuts. Believe it or not, there are three of us writers clipped short — Bob Ford of the Kokomo Tribune and Ed Chay of the Cleveland Plain Dealer in addition to yours truly. And that’s not counting the two assistant Big Ten commissioners, Charles Henry, who wears his Afro cut tight, and John Dewey, whose few surviving hairs are practically shaved. 6:50 p.m. — Iowa’s schedule is fierce, with Michigan, UCLA, Penn State and USC as starters, but Jardine challenges anyone to match his first six games: Purdue, Nebraska, Colorado, Missouri, Ohio State and Michigan. “Every time we beat somebody,” groans Jardine, “it seems we drop ’em off our schedule. I don’t believe you can play the first six games we face without great depth.” Someone asks if Elroy Hirsch made the schedules. “Elroy had nothing to do with this schedule,” Jardine explains. “His predecessor did it. That’s why, when Elroy asked me about the 1986 schedule, I said go ahead. ITI sit in the stands and throw tomatoes at the guy who is coaching Wisconsin then.” Bowl Expansion 7:00 p.m. *— Jardine says he (and most other Big Ten coaches) want one more weapon to help them catch up with the Big Eight: Let more than one team go to a bowl game each season. “Sure it helps recruiting,” he points out. “Gee, kids now want to know how many times you’re going to play on TV.” 7:10 p.m. — Wisconsin may lead the nation in Chicago players. There are 35 Badgers from Chicago, including eight from St. Rita high. One is Marek, the tough tailback who looks at those first six games and says bravely: “If you want to be the best you have to play the best . . . Besides, Big Eight teams don’t play as tough physically as the Big Ten.” Hmm, Wisconsin will have the chance to prove that against Nebraska, Colorado and Missouri, but they almost did it last year, losing heart-breakers to Nebraska 20-16 and Colorado 28-25. 7:15 p.m. — Wisconsin has one of those unusual kickers, Vladimir LaBun. His father — get this — is a Greek Orthodox priest who came to the U.S. from Czechoslovakia. “He kicks soccer-style, but with shoes on,” laughs Jardine. 7:30 p.m. — We join Jardine for broiled bratwurst, sauerkraut and all the trimmings. Mitt Wisconsin beer yet. He mentions the Badgers will bus to games at Northwestern and Iowa this season. A newsman impishly suggests Wisconsin could WALK to Iowa and still win. “I’m not going to walk in there,” growls Jardine, “because I’ve never won in Iowa City yet. I’m 0-2 there.” 9.00 p.m. — We bus back to the Edgewater and watch darkness descend on Lake Mendota. Got to start those typewriters again. Then, Dear Diary, maybe there will be time for a tour of Madison’s cathedrals, museums, art centers and other cultural spots. basketball? “I’m very happy for Moses, I think he’s gotten a fairly good deal,” said Lefty Driesell, who had Malone all set for Maryland until the Utah Stars of the American Basketball Association Thursday signed the high school phenomenon to a contract estimated at more than $3 million.
