4C THE TENNESSEAN TUESDAYNOVEMBER 6. 1984 s" Big Teoms Mcsjor Bowls Scouting f College Football Auto Racing LARRY WOODY Two other teams to mention Ohio State and whoever the SEC runnerup is. SUGAR: "We have a situation we haven't had before, where we have so many SEC teams who have been involved with bther ranking teams during the season," Holmes said. Bowl games rarely will take a rematch from the regular season. So if the SEC Sugar Bowl team is Georgia, it probably can't take South Carolina because they met during the year. If it's Florida, they can't take Miami or Florida State for the same reason. So what's a good guess? Well, take away South Carolina and the Miami-BC winner and you end up with Ohio State. Oklahoma, the Washington-USC loser, and Oklahoma State are in the major bowl picture, too. What the Sugar Bowl must first be concerned with is how Florida does in its eligibility case. The Gators may win the SEC and not get to be in the Sugar BowL By MKE LOPRESTI Gannett Mewa Service It's getting to be backroom deal-cutting time for college football's post-season games, but it's clear about the only thing you can find in the bowls right now is mush. Saturdays are becoming difficult for the power pushers from Dallas, New Orleans and Miami. As the top-ranked teams keep barely winning and sometimes badly losing, the bowl scouts keep finding Friday's game plans turned into Sunday's scratch pads. As the Sugar Bowl's Mickey Holmes said, "It seems like we go back to square one every week." , Lot of bushes remain to be shaken out there before invitations are handed out Nov. 21 But here's a thought or two: . COTTON: If Texas remains No. 2, the Cotton Bowl probably will get its choice of at-large teams, since the Longhorns would be the highest rated opponent available to play (No. 1 Washington is tied up in the Rose Bowl). At this point that would be South Carolina or the winner of the Nov. 24 game between Boston College and Miami. The Gamecocks may not be the most familiar bunch of people ever to play football, but they do have that big "O" in their loss column. As one bowl scout said, "They're the only one (unbeaten) anybody can get their hands on." But the Cotton may opt for the EC-Miami winner even if rated lower than South Carolina. It would give the game a big-name quarterback, be it either Doug Flu-tie or Bernie Kosar. And the Cotton Bowl could use that given Texas' defensive, low-scoring souls. ORANGE: Nebraska is closing on Texas in the polls and could hop over the Longhorns, giving the Orange Bowl the Inside lane. The same option South Carolina or the RG-Miami winner pops up here, but would the Orange want ln-town school Miami a second straight year? Raceway Called Sound ' ' NASVILLE RACEWAY General Manager Joe Carver says the track is on sound financial footing and that reports of problems within owner Warner Hodgdon's business and racing empire are unfounded. "The track is not for sale, I'm not leaving to work for Darrell Waltrip and Warner Hodgdon is not bankrupt or under indictment," said Carver yestereday. "But I know these reports are being circulated, and yes, it's been disruptive to our operation. I think there are some forces J f A,A4,,liia,ifc- I- ft J - 1 ' 7 'v?

"Maybe this will relieve people's minds a little." A lot of minds evidently needed relieving, reflected by recent inquiries into the state of the track by (1) the State Fair Board, which owns the Raceway property, (2) NASCAR, which sanctions the races, (3) Coors Brewing Company, sponsor of one of the two Winston Cup races, (4) drivers who are building expensive race cars for next season, and (5) local fans who are concerned about the future of the sport. Reports of financial problems in Hodgdon's $500 million National Engineering Co. have circulated nationwide from company headquarters in San Bernardino, Calif., to NASCAR headquarters in Daytona Beach, Fla. The reports were rampant in Atlanta over the weekend among NASCAR officials, corporate sponsors, fans and , drivers who converged for the rain-delayed Atlanta Journal 500. None of the reports have been substantiated. ' In addition to real estate and construction interests, . Hodgdon is also deeply involved in auto racing. He is owner of Nashville Raceway and Bristol Raceway and half owner of Richmond (Va.) Speedway and North Wilkesboro (N.C) Raceway. He also owns half interest in the International Hot Rod Association and half inter-' est in the Junior Johnson-Warner Hodgdon Racing Team, for which Darrell Waltrip and Neil Bonnett drive. He sponsors Waltrip's Sportsman race car and provides sponsorship for Winston Cup races at Rockingham and Riverside. "Obviously, a lot of people have a vested interest in the state of Warner's business affairs, including me," said Carver, one of the more than 1,000 employees in the Hodgdon empire. "If there was something going on, I'd know about it And I can tell you for a fact that none of the stories being circulated is true." , Carver said the turmoil Js being caused by rumor . fueling rumor, and said he welcomed the chance to clarify some of the reports. 0 Bid-rigging. "People are saying that Warner has been indicted for bid-rigging in California. That's not true. One of his employees was charged in 1978. The employee was fired, but three competing companies filed a $3 million suit against Warner's company, Na- .,. tional Engineering. That suit is still pending." 0 Bankruptcy. "The company, to the best of my knowledge, is on sound ground financially. Warner has a habit of waiting until the last minute to make some of his payments, which gives rise to a lot of speculation about a lack of operating capital. Some of that got started at Rockingham when his share of the purse didn't arrive until the morning of the race. But the bottom line is, he has never missed a payment" 0 Nashville Raceway's failure. "The track lost $217,000 last year but made money this season. I think the 1983 loss was due partly to the ownership transition, the fact that the previous owners had eliminated the weekly racing schedule, and that the on-track competi-. tion frankly was not that good. We got it built back up this season, made some money, revived fan interest, and I think we'll keep going strong." - 0 Carver leaving to work for Waltrip. "Darrell like everybody else in the country had heard all the rumors. He and I go back a long way and he said that if anything happened to the track I always had a job with him. I appreciate the offer but right now I've got a job I'm happy with." 0 Employee terminations. "We let two employees go for personal reasons but had already planned a cutback. . We simply don't need a full staff during the off-season." Complicating the situation was the fact that Carver was out of the country on vacation last week as the reports circulated. . "When I couldn't be contacted some people jumped to the conclusion that I was ducking the issue," said Carver. "That's the last thing I'd do. It's to the track's advantage to clear this mess up as quickly as possible and get on with our work." Attempts to contact Hodgdon at his California home or of ftce have been unsuccessful. , "He maintains a very busy schedule and sometimes even I have trouble locating him," said Carver. "Again, this can give rise to false speculation when he's not available to answer every charge somebody makes." .......

Roundfield has a bruised left calf and Tripucka is suffering from a sprained right ankle. Cleveland fell to 0-6 with the loss. Detroit led 81-69 early in the final quarter before the Cavaliers chopped the lead to 85-82 with 8:06 remaining after Johnny Davis scored a jump shot and four consecutive free throws. ' , Detroit pushed the lead back out to 97-87, but Cleveland, featuring two baskets by World B. Free, pulled within 97-93 with 2:40 to go. The Pistons then put the game away when Laimbeer made a dunk off a pass from Thomas and aded a free throw for a three-point play, Kent Benson made a driving layup and Thomas canned an 18-footer for an U-point Detroit margin. . Cleveland was led by Davis with 21 points, . Roy Hinson with 20 and Free with 16. The season is still very young, but Reggie Theus and World E Free already are at odds with their new coaches at Kansas City and Cleveland. "I want to feel like you can make a mistake without it being a cardinal sin," Theus says of Kings Coach Jack McKinneys style, which he regards as too conservative. "If that's the way it is, you may as well sit me down." Replies McKlnney: "No one's playing style is being restrained more, than Theus. But you can't have one guy out of control in a team concept Sometimes you have to harness his enthusiasm If you don't he'll make silly passes, unnecessary plays." Free is averaging just 11 shots and 14 points per game for the Cavaliers this season, far under his gunner norms of 19 shots and 22 points last year, before George Karl replaced Tom Nissakle as the Cleveland coach. "I will not become just a passer and cutter," Free fumed. "This franchise was nothing and I made it something." ' Plenty of off-season trades and a balanced group of rookies figures to give a new look to starting lineups around the league in 1984-85, but one of the most intriguing changes to watch is Detroit's experiment with Kelly Tripucka at guard.
