New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 20, 1984, New Braunfels, Texas Bowl games still muddled By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Who will be college football’s national champion this season? The answer may come more than a week before the big New Year’s Day games. The bowl picture remains scrambled pending a decision today by the Southeastern Conference executive committee on champion Florida. One thing did appear certain. Army and Virginia, the only so-called major-college teams never to have gone to a bowl, seemed on their way this year. So did 1983 national champion Miami, Fla., now ranked 12th, No. 9 South Carolina and unranked Notre Dame, as well as five Southwest Conference teams. No. I Brigham Young, the Western Athletic Conference champion, is already locked into the Dec. 21 Holiday Bowl in San Diego and the Cougars’ opponent may not even be ranked in the Top Ten. Boston College will accept a bid to the Cotton Bowl, where the Eagles will play the Southwest Conference champion. Texas has the inside track on the title, but must get past Baylor and Texas A&M the next two weeks. TCU, SMU, Houston and Arkansas are still in the running. If TCU does not go to the Cotton Bowl, the Homed Frogs are apparently headed for the Astro-Bluebonnet Bowl in Houston. West Virginia is a likely opponent there. SMU will accept a bid to the Aloha Bowl to play Notre Dame or Hawaii, while Arkansas will play either LSU or Auburn in the Liberty Bowl. Houston and Air Force will play Virginia Tech in the Independence Bowl on Dec. 15. Bowl bids cannot officially be offered until Saturday, although speculation has it that BYU’s opposition may be No. 13 Auburn or unranked Michigan, which just completed a 6-5 season, its worst in Coach Bo Schembechler’s 16 years. Where Auburn goes may depend on the decision by the SEC executive committee, which was to decide Florida’s fate. Florida won the SEC title even as it was found guilty of 59 rules violations by the NCAA. The NCAA recommended a three-year probation, which would be reduced to two years with good behavior. The probation would ban any bowl appearances, even though the SEC winner gets an automatic bid to the Sugar Bowl. Reportedly, a compromise had been worked out to let Florida keep its SEC championship — the first for the Gators in their 52 years in the conference — but deny the team a trip to any bowl. If Florida does not go to the Sugar Bowl, Auburn could earn a trip to the New Year’s Day game in New Orleans by beating Alabama in its season finale. An Alabama victory would send louisiana State to the Sugar Bowl. Nebraska also seemed headed to the Sugar Bowl. The Cornhuskers were ranked No. I and were ready to go to the Orange Bowl as the Big Eight representative until losing 17-7 to Oklahoma last Saturday. Nebraska’s loss, coupled with then-No. 2 South Carolina’s upset loss at Navy, wiped out the Orange Bowl’s hope for a national championship game. Now, No. 2 Oklahoma and No. 3 Oklahoma State play this weekend for the trip to Miami on New Year’s Day. Should they tie, Nebraska would back into the Orange Bowl slot. Fifth-ranked Washington, the runnerup in the Pacific-10 Conference, reportedly has already accepted a bid to be the Orange Bowl visitor. The only bowl that was certain was the Rose Bowl, in which Big IO winner Ohio State will meet Pac-10 champion Southern California on New-Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif. Realignment Merged, rearranged US FL sets schedule NEW YORK i AP) — Just two months before its teams are scheduled to open training camps, the United States Football Iieague was finally set to announce its format for 1985, its final season in the spring, The USFL, which has acknowledged losses of SKX) million in its first two seasons, was expected to announce today that 14 teams, four fewer than last season, will begin play Feb. 24. Those 14 are the result of three mergers: the ISKI, champion Philadelphia Stars and the Pittsburgh Maulers into the Baltimore Stars, who will play their home games next year in College Park, Md. then move to Baltimore in 1986: the Michigan Panthers and the Oakland Invaders, who will play in Oakland, and the Oklahoma Outlaws and the Arizona Wranglers, who will play in Tempe, Anz. In addition, the Chicago franchise, purchased by Eddie Einhorn after the Blitz failed and were taken over by the league, was expected to suspend operation. Einhorn says, though, he wants to revive the team when the league moves to the fall. And the Breakers, born in Boston in 198;) and moved to New Orleans in 1984, will play this season in Portland, Ore. The moves mean the league’s first two champions, Michigan and Philadelphia, have relocated, both because they were unable to secure stadium leases for fall play. In fact, the .Michigan franchise remains in limbo because of a suit filed against it by the Pontiac Silverdome, with w hich it had a 15-year lease. It also means that since its inception the USFL has lost five of the top IO television markets — Chicago. Washington, Philadelphia, Boston and Detroit. Gooden named NL's Rookie of Year NEW YORK (AP) — Dwight Gooden has a formula for avoiding the sophomore jinx. “On Day One next year, ITI forget everything that happened this year,’’ Gooden says. For now , though, he will remember with relish the season that brought him the National league Rookie of the Year award, which was announced Monday night. He will take his plaque home to Tampa, Fla., ‘TTI hang it on the wall, and ITI look at it every night before I fall asleep." Gooden’s list of accomplishments was a long one in his first year, which happened to coincide with his final year as a teen-ager as he became the youngest play er ever to win the rookie award. Gooden, the New York Mets right-hander, did not turn 20 until last Friday. Before that day came, however, he had set a rookie record with 276 strikeouts to lead the league And, he set a major-league mark by averaging 11.39 strikeouts per nine innings. He set another major-league record with 43 strikeouts rn three consecutive rune-inning games, with a single-game high of 16. three short of the major-league standard. He set a club record by striking out IO or more batters in 15 of his 31 starts, and he became the youngest player ever selected to the All-Star Game. It was another happy coincidence that the announcement of the award came on the birthday of Gooden’s father. Dan. "You only have one chance to win this award, and to win it is a great honor," Gooden said, "and to win it especially on my father’s birthday ." The award is determined by a vote of 24 members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Two panelists are picked from each National league city, and they each vote for three players. Gooden was named first on all but one ballot, that cast by Dave Nightingale, national correspondent for The Sporting New* Nightingale voted for Juan Samuel, Philadelphia second baseman. Gooden had 118 points to 67 for Samuel, who was second. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Orel Hir-shiser was third with 15 points, followed by outfielder Dan Gladden of San Francisco i9>, pitcher Ron Darling of New York (3), outfielder Carmelo Martinez of San Diego (2), and outfielder Jeff Stone of Philadelphia and infielder Terry Pendleton of St. Ixhiis 11 each). Gooden said he came to spring training just trying to make the team, but he knew in his first outing with the Mets that he belonged in the major leagues. "My first game was great, facing all those hitters I’d watched on TV, and I knew right there I could make it," Gooden said. The Mets have supplied the league’s top rookie two straight years. Outfielder Darryl Strawberry won the award in 1983. Two other Mets have won the rookie award, Tom Seaver in 1967 and Jon Matlack rn 1972.

THE TERRY FOX STORY Robert Duvall KBVO -TV AUSTIN Brigham Young reaches No. 1 By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Brigham Young University has become the first Western Athletic Conference team to ever be ranked No. I in The Associated Press college football, as well as the fifth team to hold down the top spot this season. The Cougars, the nation’s only unbeaten major-college team, boosted their record to 11-0 Saturday by defeating Utah 24-14. Today, they vaulted from third place to No. I in this week’s AP poll, receiving 40 of 58 first-place votes and 1,124 of a possible 1,160 points from a nationwide panel of sports writers and sportscasters. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, which meet Saturday for the right to represent the Big Eight in the Orange Bowl, are second and third this week after being sixth and fourth, respectively, last week. The rankings underwent some wholesale shuffling after Oklahoma knocked off No. I Nebraska 17-7, dropping the Cornhuskers to seventh place, and Navy upset second-ranked South Carolina 38-21. BYU Coach IxiVell Edwards called the Cougars’ rise to the top “a once-in-a-lifetime thing." He said Monday was a "horrible’ day because his telephone rang incessantly.
