IICAA meeting during season miffs Griner By BUCK TURNBULL Register StaH Writer AMES, IA. - Iowa State Coach Jim Criner said Tuesday he doesn't think it's fair for the NCAA to make coaches attend committee meetings for the purpose of replying to charges while their seasons are in progress. Criner will be among those from Iowa State who are to appear Friday morning before the NCAA's Committee on Infractions to answer allegations of wrongdoing by the Cyclone football and basketball programs. Criner's team ends the home season Saturday against Kansas State, then winds up the following week at Oklahoma State. "It seems to me that the NCAA could very easily have waited another week until our season is over," said Criner. Huskers' Meeting Six weeks ago Coach Tom Osborne and others from Nebraska were called to a similar meeting in Booth Harbor, Maine, on a Sunday, the day after the Cornhuskers had played a home game against Oregon. Criner said he didn't believe that was fair, either. "I say that primarily because our time ought to be spent with the players," he said. Although a victory over Kansas State would assure Iowa State of its first winning football season in six years, raising the record to 6-4, Criner has been placed in an unusual situation. Not many coaches find themselves on the chopping block when they've finally turned the corner in a losing program, but Criner's job security is not the best because of the lengthy NCAA investigation. Job Questions If there are severe penalties forthcoming, many believe new university President Gordon Eaton will fire Criner, paying him off for the final year remaining on his five-year contract, and in that case, Athletic Director Max Urick's job may be hanging in the balance, too. Criner said he had not met with Eaton to discuss his situation, and when asked if he expects to be the Cyclone coach next season, he said: "I'm taking things one at a time. Right now the only thing I'm worrying about is Kansas State. "That's really all I want to talk about. I got into the profession to coach football, and that's what I want to do." Iowa State is a 13-point favorite to beat the Wildcats, who have not won a road game since 1983, but Criner said they are not a team that can be taken lightly. "They're playing very well right now," he said. "They are a much better team than they were earlier in the season, because new coach Stan Parrish has done an excellent job of adjusting to his material. "A perfect example was their game last week with Oklahoma State a 23-3 loss. They controlled the football, and had more rushing yards and more first downs, but they self-destructed down near the goal line." Lost to UNI Kansas State has a 2-7 record, beating Western Illinois in its opener and Kansas in Big Eight play. One of the losses was to Northern Iowa, 17-0. Criner said he is pleased with the progress of the Cyclones, who battled heavily favored Nebraska on even terms for three quarters last Satur day before bowing, 35-14. Two closing victories would give them a first-division finish in the Big Eight with a fourth-place 4-3 mark, which would be the school's best since 1978. A 7-4 overall record also should merit bowl consideration, said Criner, "and that's something we're playing for. We hope it can come true." NOTES Criner said he expects to be back for practice Friday, since the NCAA meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Vista Hotel in Kansas City. For what it's worth, Nebraska learned of its penalty a one-year probation three weeks after the meeting in Maine. . . . Special, pre-game ceremonies Saturday are planned for Iowa State's seniors, and there are a lot of them 14 starters, including the entire secondary. "The team coming back will be a good one, because we have good young players," said Criner. "But we will need help in the secondary, and also in the defensive line." at . i Waterloo's newest hotel is also the closest to the Greyhound Racing Park.

(AP) -Sore-shouldered quarterback Jim McMahon has a slight tear in the ten don of his right rotator cuff and will be unable to start for the Chicago Bears at Atlanta on Sunday, a team physician said Tuesday. "We had to struggle to find it," said Dr. Clarence Fos-sier, who explained that the tear only JIM McMAHON showed up in the second of two arthroscopic examinations. Fossier said that even with dye injection, the tear could not be detected until McMahon had exercised the shoulder vigorously. Just the added irritation of the two tests would set McMahon back anoth er three or four days, Fossier said, so it is unlikely he would be able to play until a week from Sunday's game with the Falcons. Coach Mike Ditka ordered the tests to see if McMahon would be ready to throw again today. "Mike Tomczak's the starter Sunday if Jim isn't ready," Ditka had said earlier. Fossier said physicians would merely continue treating the inflam mation in McMahon's shoulder for the remainder of the season, but might decide to perform surgery during the off-season.

Rose, 45, the most prolific hitter in baseball history, was put on waivers, which means he cannot play before May 15. He has a year left on his contract as a player. "We have not categorized this in any way as a retirement, and it's not. It's just him stepping off the roster," Reds General Manager Bill Bergesch said Tuesday. "I would hope we haven't seen the last of Pete Rose, the player." It will be the first time since Rose began his major-league career with Cincinnati in 1963 that he will not open a season as a player on a roster. Although he could be selected by another team in baseball's December winter draft, Bergesch said he considers that possibility remote because Rose will remain Cincinnati's manager. Rose and his coaches will decide, in consultation with the general manager, which players are retained next season, Bergesch said. "That will be Pete's decision. He's going to decide the 24 men," Bergesch said. "Pete's been very good about it all along. He's always said he was going to do what's good for the ballclub." Bergesch, who urged Rose to take himself off the winter roster so that the Reds could protect a younger player, said Rose made the decision voluntarily Monday when they met to discuss the roster. Teams had to complete their winter rosters by today. Rose came off the protected list for right-handed pitcher Pat Pacillo, a minor-leaguer. Rose still can play in exhibition games. The Reds had a surprise announcement Tuesday in revealing the players named to their 40-man roster. The team released left-handed pitcher Chris Welsh, a former Texas Rangers pitcher used by Cincinnati as a spot Pete Rose He's still the manager GAR V f re- 7 Sale Price 29.97 P15580R13 V7 SIZi PKICt P165 8jP'3 "175 8QU13 4097 0185 80P13 41.97 P185 75P14 42;7 P195 75P14 4597 P205 75B14 47.97 P215 75P14 491 P205 75M5 4997 P215 75P15 S4.97 ISJ '7 Sale Price 43.97 P17570R13 Blackwall SIZE PRICE P185 70P13 44.97 P185 70PU 191 P195 70P14 53 97 "P205 70P-4 59 97 "F225 70P15 67 97 THE DES MOINES REGISTER 3S starter last season, and veteran catcher Dave Van Gorder. Welsh was 6-9 with a 4.78 earned-run average for Cincinnati in 24 games after going 5-2 with a 4.02 ERA for the triple-A Denver farm team in 10 games. Bergesch said Welsh and Van Gorder had to be bumped because the Reds chose to protect more young minor-league prospects. Bergesph said the Reds will talk to Welsh, who may be signed by other clubs, about remaining with the Cincinnati organization. On Sept. 11, 1985, Rose added to his list of major-league records by collecting a single to break Ty Cobb's former career hit record of 4,191. Gooden wants drug-test clause in his contract TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - New York Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden, sensitive to rumors that he might be involved with drugs, says he will ask for a drug-testing clause in his next contract. "It can be for a test every week, every two days, as often as they waht and it can be forever," Gooden said. Gooden, the National League's Cy Young Award winner in 1985, told the Tampa Tribune in an article published Tuesday that he has never taken drugs and does not have a problem with alcohol either. "Beer is what I drink and not much of that," said Gooden, who posted a 17-6 regular-season record in 1986. "Wine makes me sick. Drugs? No; l never use them and I never will." The latest wave of rumors began after Gooden started four games in postseason play without winning any of them. The Mets star also did not show up for a ticker-tape parade given the team after it won the World Series. Gooden, who will turn 22 Sunday, said the rumors began during a mid-season slump that saw him lose four straight decisions. "People think I am 35 years old, guess. If something goes wrong, the talk starts," Gooden said. "That is the reason for the drug clause I want in a contract I hope will be for two or three years." Lanier, McNamara picked by Sporting News ST. LOUIS, MO. - Hal Lanier 6f the Houston Astros and John McNamara of the Boston Red Sox have been named co-managers of the year by the Sporting News. Both Lanier and McNamara received nine votes in a poll of major-league managers. Davey Johnson of the New York Mets was third with 3V4 votes, followed by Bobby Valentine of the Texas Rangers with two. Lanier guided Houston to a team-record 96 victories and the National League West Division title. McNamara piloted Boston to the World Series for the first time in 11 years.
