Miami whips stumbling Irish By United Press International Gerry Faust, who guided Notre Dame to its first losing season in 18 years, gained one useful bit of experience following Friday's embarrassing 37-15 loss to Miami of Fla. "I learned that I don't want to lose," Faust said. "It's no fun." "I'm personally embarrassed," said senior cornerback John Krimm. "I feel sorry for the seniors especially, and for myself. There's no way we can make it up. The Juniors will come back next year and they can remember this and learn from it. The seniors can only move on." Sophomire quarterback Blair Kiel, who suffered two of Notre Dame's three interceptions, is one of the underclassmen returning next year. "We were embarrassed on national television and that's going to give us added incentive," Kiel said. "One thing we learned this year was that Notre Dame has a great tradition, but games are won and lost on the football field." Mike Rodrigue scored once as a quarterback and once as a wide receiver and Jim Kelly threw two touchdown passes to lead Miami to its first victory over the Irish in 21 years. Notre Dame and first-year coach Faust finished the season at 5-6, the worst Notre Dame record since Hugh Devore's Irish went 2-7 in 1963. Miami wound up at 9-2, the Hurricanes' best record since they went 8-1-1 in 1956, but won't go Ho a bowl because of NCAA sanctions for recruiting violations. "Beating Notre Dame before a national television audience was more than any coach could hope for," said Hurricans coach Howard Schnellenber- ger. "This is better than a bowl win. This gets the team over the top and to the position of being a national power." Rodrigue, a senior who was converted from quarterback to wide receiver this year, and Kelly sent Miami to a commanding 30-6 halftime lead. Rodrigue lined up as a quarterback on the Notre Dame 4-yard line just 3% minutes into the game and rolled to his right for the opening touchdown. Notre Dame's Greg Bell took the ensuing klckoff 98 yards down the left sideline for a touchdown, but the extra point was blocked by tackle Lester Williams. Rodrigue made it 14-6 on a 18-yard completion from Kelly, Danny Miller booted field goals of 49 and 53 yards and then receiver Rocky Belk gathered in a Kelly pass behind the Notre Dame secondary on the 15-yard line and raced in for a 63-yard touchdown. Miller added a 24-yard field goal to give the Hurricanes their 24-point halftime lead. Ainge signs pact with Celtics Sunday, November 29,1981 — The Sallna Journal Page 27 TOP QUALITY EQUIPMENT! BACKPACKING • CAMPING I CROSS COUNTRY SKIS I OUTDOOR CLOTHING I BOSTON (UPI) - Danny Ainge, who found in a short baseball career he couldn't hit the breaking pitch, will soon get his chance to find out if he can hit the outside shot and lead a fastbreak in the National Basketball Association. Ainge, who led Brigham Young University to the NCAA playoffs last spring while a third baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays, Friday jumped to the champion Boston Celtics of the NBA. Ainge signed a multi-year contract with, the Celtics, three/days before a deadline given the team by the Blue Jays, who earlier won a court battle to keep Boston away. "I'm excited to get started playing basketball. It's going to take me a couple of weeks, I'm sure (to get ready)," the 22-year-old Ainge told a packed news conference in Celtics President Red Auerbach's Boston Garden office. "I've always been optimistic that everything would work out with the Celtics," said Ainge who played pro baseball with the Blue Jays the last three years. This season his batting average fell below .200 while the Blue Jays tried to keep him and the Celtics tried to sign Danny Ainge him, after surprising the NBA by drafting him during the baseball season in June. The agreement was reached following a day-long meeting in Boston involving his father Don, his agent Bob Quinney, Auerbach and Celtics owner Harry Mangurian. No terms were announced, however the Celtics were expected to compensate the Blue Jays, who held Ainge under a contract that prohibited him from playing professional basketball until 1983. "If all goes well, Ainge could be in uniform (No. 44) by Dec. 9," when Boston hosts the New Jersey Nets following a road trip, Celtics coach BUI Fitch said. "Danny is a good player. We know that," Fitch explained, "But he's four weeks behind every rookie. If he's as Northwest claims 6A title OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (UPI) - Russ.Maloney ran 48 yards for a touchdown, in the first quarter Saturday afternoon to lead Shawnee Mission Northwest to a 124 victory over Wichita East in the Class 6A state championship game. The victory gave the Cougars their first state football championship and ended a long drought for Shawnee Mission teams in 6A. Northwest is the first Shawnee Mission team to win the large class football title since Shawnee Mis- ,sion South in 1975. -' Maloney's run gave Northwest a 6-0 lead with 5:24 remaining in the first period. Ron Frazier made the extra point attempt but Northwest was called for illegal procedure. Frazier missed from 5 yards further back. Northwest got a break in the defensive struggle for its final score. Late in the third quarter, linebacker Rich Wroebel intercepted a short pass from Wichita quarterback Steve Hyson and returned it 61 yards for a touchdown. Wichita's offense penetrated the Northwest 30-yard line only once and could manage only 139 yards in total offense. Tailback Kevin Crawford, Wichita's leading rusher with more than 1,000 yards, was held to 51 yards on 13 carries.

The Fowler Goldbuga took their second possession and moved to the Midway 12 only to settle for a 36-yard Todd Dewel field goal. The 3-pointer came with 8:15 to go in the opening period, and proved to be the only time Fowler would get on the board. In 4 plays Midway moved 42 yards, scoring on a 15-yard bootleg by Zeit. It was the first of three touchdowns for the Junior in the first half.

Also present were two Blue Jays representatives, including Vice President Pat Gillick. "We are satisfied. We came out minus a third baseman, but you have to face up to it that he wanted to be a basketball player," Gillick said. Ainge, in another of Auerbach's drafting coups, was chosen in the second round of the June NBA draft after other teams had bypassed him because of his baseball career. He repeatedly offered through the summer and fall to repay a $300,000 bonus to Toronto. Gillick said Ainge was allowed to keep all the money he'd been paid by the Blue Jays. Mangurian and Auerbach have said they will ask the NBA to investigate charges of tampering against the Los Angeles Lakers and the Philadelphia 76ers. It has been reported represent- ives of both teams told Toronto they would meet the Blue Jays' asking price of $1 million to release Ainge when the Celtics held the BYU All America's rights untO the 1982 draft. Auerbach on Friday reiterated that there "definitely will be a full-scale investigation of the charges." Ainge said he had no contact from other NBA teams. ^ OUTDOOR EQUIPMENT SPECIALISTS (Bring This Ad For 5% OH Any Item In Stock Excluding Bicycles.) 1111 Moro Aggie ville/ Manhattan 539-5639 HOURS: Mon.-Fri. 10-6, Thurs.
