Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD December 4, 1974 Stan Fischler Are the Islanders for real? One of the strangest hockey sagas of the decade currently is unfolding in the New York Metropolitan area where the upstart Islanders are threatening to knock the overpaid underworked Rangers right out of a playoff berth. That such a thought is possible just two-and-a-quarter years after the Islanders were born is something of a major miracle. Yet there skates Al Arbour's sextet looking more like a playoff club every week. Until "recently, Ranger players treated the Islanders with the kind of scorn age-old royalty reserves for the serfs. But last time out the vibrant expansion club thundered from behind to tie the Range-s and win.the kind of meaningful acclaim few teams obtain. Fred Shero, coach of the Stanley Cup champion Philadelphia Flyers, wasted no time putting down the Rangers and lauding the Islanders. "The Islanders are a more disciplined club than the said Shero, whose club has faced them both this season. "And they seem to be hungrier than the Rangers." Shero isn't in the minority either. "The said Flyers' captain Bobby Clarke, "work harder than the Rangers." Terry Crisp, now with the Flyers, was an original Islander in October 1972. He finds the change in his old team rather awesome. "When I was with them in that first said Crisp, "they took a lot of abuse. But Al Arbour has changed things. He's got the Islanders playing good positional hockey and waiting for the breaks. That's a tough system to go against." Arbour is the third Islanders" coach, following Earl Ingar- iield and Phil Goyette. Respected hockey critics credit Arbour with putting the accent on positive thinking in Nassau Coliseum. "The spirit in this club is Arbour admitted. The guys believe in themselves." Typical was the last meeting between the Flyers and Islanders at the Coliseum. Trailing 4-3 with a minute remaining, the Arbourmen rallied for the tying score after pull- ing goalie Billy Smith. Perhaps more significant was the fact that the Islanders never took a back step from the menacing Flyers and let the Broad Street Bullies know it. to boot. Much improved Garry Howatt led the assault by battering Clarke. "If they want to battle heads all said (goalie) Smith, "we'll battle heads with them." Another improved toughie is defenceman Gerry Hart. "Nobody's going to push our club around." added Arbour. 'I'll guarantee that. We'll stand up to any team." It's doubtful that the Islanders will prevail over the Flyers, Rangers and even Atlanta in the NHL's tough Lester Patrick iJivision but, on the other hand, you never know. Calder Cup winning defenceman Denis Potvin already is a superstar and Bobby Bourne looks like the Rookie of the Year. "I wouldn't go out on a limb and say they're capable of ivmmng The Stanley Shero concluded. "But as long as t hey continue to show such enthusiasm and drive, they're going to give a lot of clubs plenty of trouble." Especially the Rangers and Flyers. 80-footer wins game Teammates again It has been a while since Ear! Ingarfield, left and Les Colwill were teammates.

Attendance Ohio's Archie Griffin wins Heisman Trophy NEW YORK (AP) Until he became the fifth un- deTlassman to win the Heisman Trophy, Ohio State running ace Archie Griffin wasn't aware that none of the four previous players who won it as juniors had been able to repeat as seniors. Now he knows. "Everyone's scaring it into me Griffin said Tues- day when he was announced as the 1974 winner of the Heisman Trophy, which an- nually goes to the outstanding college football player in the country. Griffin, a 5-foot-9, 185- pounder who holds the Big Ten and Ohio State career rushing records, intends to give it his best shot in 1975 in an attempt to become the first two-time Heisman winner. "I'm gonna put my best foot he said, "and if the voters think I'm good enough to win it again, then I'll win it." Griffin has felt the pressure in rushing for more than 100 yards in every game during the last two NCAA record 22 consecutive regular- season games, plus the 1974 Rose he expects to be even more of a target now that he stands above the crowd as the 40th Heisman winner. His next outing is against Southern California and the Heisman runner-up in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. "I'm sure they'll probably come and shoot at me more, but I'll just go out and do my best in every game. Coach (Woody) Hayes says you either get better or you get worse and I'll just try to im- prove next year." That will take some doing since Griffin has yards rushing in his college career and gained 1.620 yards this among the nation's major collegians. Griffin captured the Heisman in a runaway over Southern California senior tailback Anthony Davis. The two will meet in the Rose Bowl for the third year in a row. Griffin received 483 first- place worth three of a possible points from a nation- wide panel of 849 electors. He was named second on 198 ballots and third on 75 others. The votes were tabulated on a 3-2-1 point basis. Davis received 120 first- place votes, 148 seconds and 163 thirds for 819 points. Joe Washington, a junior halfback from Oklahoma, finished third with 87 first- place votes and 661 points. Then came Notre Dame quarterback Tom Elements and Nebraska quarterback Dave Humm. Rounding out the top 10 were Michigan quarterback Dennis Franklin, Oklahoma linebacker Rod Shoate, Medicine Hat plans new ball park MEDICINE HAT (CP) City Council has revealed plans to build a stadium that could accom- modate a Class A club in the newly formed Pioneer Baseball League. It was announced at council Monday night that Los Angeles Dodgers and Texas Rangers have both expressed interest in locating a farm club at Medicine Hat when the new league expands by 1976 or 1977. The stadium, which will in- volve rebuilding the old Athletic Park, is expected to be completed in 1976. Council has budgeted for the project. The newly formed Lethbridge Expos are a part of the Pioneer Baseball League. The Lethbridge team is sponsored by the Montreal Expos of the National Baseball League. Locals tangle Lethbridge's two entries in the Southern Alberta Juvenile League will meet this evening. The Warriors and Elks, a Midget entry in the league, will tangle tonight at at the Civic Centre. Brigham Young quarterback Gary Sheide, Maryland defen- sive lineman Randy White and California quarterback Steve Bartkowski. The other juniors to win the Heisman were Doc Blanchard of Army in 1945, Doak Walker of Southern Methodist in 1948, Vic, Janowicz of Ohio State in 1950 and Roger Staubach of Navy in 1963. 4IVo-show' figures approach ASSOCIATED PRESS A total of fans holding tickets did not show up for National Football League games over the weekend, pushing the NFL "no-show" figure for the season toward a record one million. Through 155 games so far this season, the no-show total is compared with 860 for 156 games in 1973. "With two weeks remaining, our no-shows appear certain to top a Don Weiss, NFL in- formation director, said Mon- day. The no-show is a person wLo has bought a ticket for a game, up to but elects not to use it, in most instances preferring to stay home and watch the contest on television. This has been a bone of contention between the NFL and Washington since Congress passed a law for- bidding TV blackouts when a game is a sellout at least 72 hours in advance. Com- missioner Pete Rozelle, contesting1 the law, argues that it tends to bleed 'fan interest and undermine the basic economic structure of the game. Rozelle is preparing briefs to have the law changed. Raw, miserable weather joined with characteristic late season apathy to keep fans out of the parks Sunday. At Atlanta, where the Falcons met Los Angeles Rams in bitter 33-degree cold, ticket holders did not appear. This was a NFL one-game record, the previous high for no-shows being the who chose to stay away from the game between Baltimore Colts and Kansas City Chiefs on Dec. 17, 1972. Gaping rows of empty seats also were visible at Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia and New York, areas belted by numbing cold, high winds, snow and ice. There were no-shows at Chicago's Soldier Field where the Bears beat New York Giants 16-13 in wind, rain and snow a local record for ticket holding absentees-. At Cleveland, after 20 inches of snow had fallen in some suburban areas, stayed away. There were 022 no-shows at Philadelphia and at New York's Shea Stadium where Joe Namath and the Jets racked up their fourth straight victory, beating San Diego 27-14. Other no-shows were: St. Louis, Pittsburgh, 9.155; Minneapolis, Buf- falo, 4.217; Oakland, Detroit, and Dallas, 988.
