Heisman Is Boost To Rogers' Stock ByPETERFINNEYJr. UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - South Carolina running back George Rogers, who made football his tool for breaking a life of hardknock poverty, has won the Heisman Trophy as the nation's best college player, adding another bargaining chip to his bid for a lucrative NFL contract. But Rogers, who led the nation in rushing in 1980 with 1,781 yards, has violated N- CAA rules'by making a verbal agreement with South Carolina Coach Jim Carlen to negotiate his future contract, the New York Daily News said today in a copyright story. Rogers was named college football's best player Monday by 1,050 sports writers and broadcasters in a poll sponsored by the Downtown Athletic Club. The Daily News said Rogers apparently has violated an NCAA rule that prohibits coaches from representing their athletes — either directly or indirectly — in any contract negotiations. Rogers told the newspaper Carlen had offered to serve as his representative. "Coach Carlen is the only guy I know absolutely that I can trust," Rogers said in a taped interview. "Plus, you know, he's doing it free. And I don't think I can beat that." Carlen admitted offering his services to Rogers but said he was unaware of the NCAA rule until Monday. "We're like a family here," Carlen told the Daily News. "Yes, I'm willing to to sacrifice part of my time to help him in his negotiations. What he told you is correct. I've done this for all my players. "But I saw the NCAA rule on this for the first time today and I've got to be careful. I may have to get an attorney here in town to do the negotiating for me. And he'll do it for free." Dave Berst, director of enforcement for the NCAA, said a coach was prohibited from representing a player even if he did not receive a fee. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound senior who, as a child, moved in and out of several small Georgia towns because of his family's financial difficulties, climaxed a brilliant four-year career as the NCAA's fourth- best all-time rusher with 4,958 yards. Only Tony Dorsett of Pittsburgh (6,082), Charles White of Southern California (5,598) Green Happy To Be Second PITTSBURGH (UPI) This was one time Hugh Green considered coming in second just about as good as finishing first. "I felt that what we were trying to accomplish was something new and unusual ...I'm not disappointed," Green, Pitt's all-everything defensive end, said Monday after learning he had finished second to South Carolina running back George Rogers in voting for the Heisman Trophy, given annually by the Downtown Athletic Club of New York to the nation's best college football player. Green, considered the leading candidate for the Lombard! Award as the nation's best defenseman, had hoped to become the first non- offensive player to ever win the coveted trophy, which is chosen in open balloting by 1,050 sportswriters and broadcasters from across the United States. Traditionally, the award is voted to a running back, and occasionally to a quarterback; a couple tight ends also have won the award. A long shot at the beginning of the season, Green benefitted from a campaign by Pitt's sports information office. An attractive poster, bearing the question, "Why not a defensive player this year?," was mailed to thousands of potential Heisman selectors. Rogers won the award with 216 first-place votes and 1,128 total points. Green, a native of Natchez, Miss., finished with 179 first-place votes and 861 points. "There are two different levels for offensive and defensive players," Green said. "It is slated for an offensive player to win, but when a defensive player is second, that means people feel he is a very comparable player." Rogers apparently shared Green's opinion. "I think it's very difficult for a defensive lineman to win the award because he's not in the spotlight," Rogers said. "A running back can make things happen whereas a defensive lineman has to wait for the action to come to him. I would say if Hugh Green didn't win it, it might be a long time before a defensive player ever wins it." Rogers will be going against Green in the Gator Bowl on Dec. 29 when the Gamecocks meet the fourth-ranked Panthers (10-1). Green is anxious for the matchup. "It real be a real challenge for the overall defense, not just for me," he said. "I've never played against a Heisman back." Nor has he played with one. Pitt's Heisman Trophy winner, Tony Dorsett, won in 1976. Green entered Pitt in 1977, where he has been starring on the defense ever since. and Archie Griffin of Ohio State (5,177) gained more yards In their careers — and all three won the Heisman. "I thank the entire coaching staff for helping me and the players for playing so hard behind me," said Rogers, who rushed for more than 100 yards in 21 consecutive games. "I'm kind of surprised I won it. 1 thought I had a real good season, but we lost three games (8-3) and I thought that might be my downfall. Usually the Heisman Trophy goes to a team with a better record." In a year when the Heisman competition was supposed to be close, it was a runaway. Rogers received 216 first- place votes, and 1,128 points, far ahead of Pittsburgh defensive end Hugh Green, who got 179 first-place mentions and 861 votes, and Georgia's freshman sensation Herschel Walker, who tallied 107 first-place votes and 683 votes. Green received more votes than any other defensive player In the 45-year history of the Heisman, and Walker was the first freshman to finish as high as third in the balloting. Rogers already has thought about his priorities when he signs his first NFL contract. He plans to buy a house in Atlanta for his mother, an expensive sports car for himself and gifts for his brothers and sisters. "If it wasn't for football, I would be able to say none of these things I am saying now," he said. "It's amazing, isn't it?" Rounding out the top 10 Heisman vote-getters were Purdue quarterback Mark Herrmann, Brigham Young quarterback Jim McMahon, Ohio State quarterback Art Schlichter, Portland State quarterback Neil Lomax, Nebraska running back Jarvis Redwine, UCLA defensive back ' Kenny Easley and Michigan wide receiver Anthony Carter. Georgia Holds To Top Spot NEW YORK (UPI) - The Georgia Bulldogs, enjoying their first undefeated regular season in 35 years, remained the No. 1 team in the nation today following balloting by UPI's Board of Coaches. Georgia, which defeated intra-state rival Georgia Tech, 38-20, Saturday to post an ll-O record, can wrap up its first national championship with a victory over Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day. The Fighting Irish, 9-0-1, held on to the No. 2 rating in balloting by 38 of the 42 coaches — six from each of the seven geographical sections of the country — who comprise UPI's Board. Georgia received 35 first- place votes for 565 points and Notre Dame, which meets Southern California on Saturday, had two first-place votes for 519 points. Florida State, idle since Nov. 8 but with a game against Florida on Saturday, remained at No. 3 followed by No. 4 Pittsburgh (one first- place vote), a 14-9 winner over Penn State, and No. 5 Oklahoma. Rounding out the Top 10 were No. 6 Michigan, No. 7 Baylor, No. 8 Alabama, No. 9 Nebraska and No. 10 Penn State/ Penn State, ranked fifth last week, fell five places after losing to Pittsburgh.

DePaul OpensNew Arena With Romp By FRED LIEF UPI Sports Writer It's not like the old place on West Belden Avenue in Chicago, where the rumble of the el was a short jump shot away, but it's home now for DePaul University. The second-ranked Blue Demons this season moved to the Horizon, a slick new arena In the west suburb of Rosemont, 111. The new facility, with a capacity of 18,000, is near O'Hare Airport. And in view of DePaul's strength this year it provides the opposition maximum access for a quick getaway. On Monday night, the Blue Demons — with Mark Aguirre scoring 26 points — christened their new home with a 74-56 victory over Gonzaga. "The new place is going to hurt us a little at the start, but help us in the spring," said Coach Ray Meyer, starting his 39th season at DePaul. "We're going to have to get used to it, much the same way the fans are," said senior guard Clyde Bradshaw, who had 10 paints. "We're used to playing at Alumni Hall but I think everything will work out for us here." DePaul held Gonzaga without a basket for nearly seven minutes. DePaul led, 2318, with 4:20 remaining in the half, and Gonzaga did not score again until 17:25 remained in the game as DePaul reeled off 12 straight points. Gonzaga Coach Dan Fitzgerald, whose club was led by Tony Sheen with 13 points, knew he was in deep trouble. "We couldn't buy a basket," he said. "We are normally a good shooting team, but... I'm happy with the job we did. You've got to remember, we're playing against a championship caliber team." Elsewhere in the top games, No. 4 Indiana defeated Murray State, 59-41, Iowa thrashed Detroit, 98-55, and Kansas State dumped South Dakota, 83-50. Isiah Thomas, one of the nation's premier guards, scored 21 points to help Indiana rally past Murray State. The Hoosiers trailed, 33-30, at the half but then limited Murray State to 8 points the rest of the way. "Once we got ahead," said Indiana coach Bobby Knight, "our players, with their quickness, made their presence felt." Vince Brookin.5, hitting 11- of-17 from the floor, scored 27 points in just 16 minutes to power Iowa in its laugher. The Hawkeyes murdered the Titans on the boards, 67-43. Rolando Blackman scored 22 points, making six of his last seven shots, and Randy Reed added 17 points to carry Kansas State. "We were rolling tonight," Blackman said. "We had that ball moving up and down the floor." South Dakota Coach Jack Doyle said, "We played hard. We were just outmanned."

Top college stars NEA's 1980 All-America football team By Murray Olderman SAN FRANCISCO (NEA) The 1980 All-America college football team announced by Newspaper Enterprise Association is a tribute to that phenomenal modern species — the running back! The abilities of George Rogers of South Carolina have been well documented. He has been a brilliant ball-carrier for four years and will quite likely be the first man tapped by the pros. But how about freshman Herschel Walker? This sensational 18-year-old has been the physical force of the undefeated Georgia Bulldogs, No. 1 team in the nation. He is already being touted as the best running back of all time. The NEA All-America team is assembled from consultations with leading college coaches, writers and scouts from all sections of the country. The emphasis is on varsity exploits. Georgia, Notre Dame and Southern California, all finishing successful seasons, each placed two men on the 1980 NEA team. There is a strong Southern cast to the team, with eight selections from that part of the country — led, of course, by Walker and Rogers. For offensive balance on the NEA All-America squad, there is the wonder man of the Ohio State Buckeyes, QB Art Schlichter, to provide passing and leadership — with excellent receivers such as Ken Margerum of Stanford and Chris Collinsworth of Florida. Skeptics might question the omission of Purdue's Dave Young at tight end, in view of his nation-leading receiving totals. But it was the feeling of NEA's advisory board that little-touted Marvin Harvey of Southern Mississippi was the better all-around man at that position, where blocking is also required. Randy Schleusener of Nebraska may not be a blue- chipper in pro assessments, but the tall, smart guard of the Nebraska Cornhuskers has been an achiever. He is jomed up front in the blocking posi- Uons by Ron Wooten of North Carolina, at the other guard; John Scully of Notre Pame, at center; and a pair of mountainous tackles, USC's Keith Van Borne and BYV's Mck Eyre. On defense, nose guard Jim Burt of Miami (Fla.) and back Bill Whisker of. Itpspuri, likewise wofl't be first-round draft choices by the NFL •• .. ttey don't fit the it specifications. But they have been superb college performers. That doesn't mean the NFL will overlook this All-America defensive lineup. Ends such as Hugh Green of Pittsburgh and E.J. Junior of Alabama are premium types. Leonard Mitchell of Houston and Ken Sims of Texas are prototypal tackles at any level of football. You won't find linebackers with more range than Mike Singletary of Baylor and Bob Crable of Notre Dame. And they were challenged severely by David Little of Florida and Lawrence Taylor of North Carolina. In the defensive backfield quartet with Whitaker are Ken Easley of UCLA, probably the best deep defender in a generation; Ronnie Lott of USC; and Bobby Butler of Florida State. The kickers are Rex Robinson of Georgia for field goals and Ray Stachowitz of Michigan State for booming punts.

(UPI) Jim Plunkett, frustrated by his inability to throw a touchdown pass, scored on an 8- yard bootleg early in the third quarter Monday night to carry the Oakland Raiders to a 9-3 victory over Denver, all but knocking the Broncos out of playoff contention. The Raiders' defense came up with one of its finest performances of the season, limiting the Broncos to only one scoring chance and that was early in the game when Fred Steinfort kicked a 41- yard field goal. The Broncos, suffering their sixth loss against seven victories, spent most of the game buried in their own end and never had a chance to kick a field goal, let alone score a touchdown. Chris Bahr kicked a 44-yard field goal at the start of the final quarter for Oakland's only other points. The Raiders, 9-4, might have had an easier time of it but they missed four fieldgoal attempts plus an extra point. The victory enabled the Raiders to tie the San Diego Chargers for first place in the AFC West with three games left. Bahr missed field-goal attempts of 31 yards in the second quarter, 26 in the third and 47 and 43 in the final period. The Broncos took a 3-0 lead at halftime, but the Raiders moved ahead with the second half kickoff, going 77 yards in eight plays for the game's only touchdown. A pass interference call against Aaron Kyle on Cliff Branch was the play that enabled the Raiders to score. It set them up at the Denver 31, and five -plays later, Plunkett carried the ball in for the score. Bahr's try for the PAT hit the left upright. Rod Martin recovered a fumble by Jim Jensen at the Denver 28 late in the third quarter, but Bahr missed from 26 yards as the near capacity crowd of 51,583, who staged a pre-game demonstration in the parking lot, booed the slightly built kicker. At the start of the fourth quarter, the Raiders moved to the Denver 26 and when they could not advance the ball farther, Bahr came on and this time made good from 44 yards out. Bahr missed from 47 yards on Oakland's next possession. .Then after Ted Hendricks recovered a fumble by Rob Lytle at the Denver 34 with about five minutes remaining, the Raiders once again were unable to convert the turnover into points as Bahr fanned from 43 yards.

An IOC spokesman said Athens' application, hid been accepted along with those from Melbourne, Australia, and Nagoya, Japan. The spokesman said a recommendation by a special IOC commission to holl the Summer Games permanently in Greece would be considered at the IOC's 84th full session at Baden-Baden next September. LA Pitcher Howe Named Top Rookie LOS ANGELES (UPI) Steve Howe didn't think he .would even make the team, but Monday he became the second Los Angeles Dodgers' pitcher'in two years to win the the National League's Rookie of the Year award. "1 can't believe it," Howe said after receiving the award. "I really didn't expect it. I competed against some really fine baseball players." Howe got 12 first-place votes and 80 points from the 24 members of the Baseball Writers Association of America — two from each Natiqnal League city - to easily beat out pitcher Bill Gullickson of Montreal and outfielder Lonnie Smith of Philadelphia. Gullickson got five first- place votes and 53 points, and Smith received four first- place mentions and 49 points. "I was just glad to be with the Dodgers," Howe said. "In March I had no idea I would accomplish what I did." During spring training as a non-roster player, Howe was nearly sent back to the minors for more seasoning. Although they needed left^ handed relief help desperately, the Dodgers were not quite sure if Howe was ready for the jump to the big club. But he impressed them with his 94-mph fastball and made the team with a strong showing in the exhibition season. "We weren't sure we were doing the right thing when we kept Steve," Dodgers' pitching coach Red Adams admitted earlier this year. "We didn't want to risk injuring his arm. But the more we looked 'at him in spring training, the more we liked him and we decided to take a chance with him." The Dodgers' gamble paid off as Howe became the club's N9. i reliever during the regular season. Appearing in 59 gamesjie gave up jus| efl§ home r«C- t Morgan — in 85 innings of relief and walked only 22. During one stretch of outings from May - Sept. 17, he allowed only seven earned runs in 63 1-3 innings (1.00 ERA). "I had a good time in the bullpen," Howe said. "I hadn't relieved before so I didn't know what to expect. My arm never bothered me, so it doesn't worry me if I'm a starter or reliever in the future." Second baseman Davey Lopes said he "told Steve to familiarize himself with everything he had to do in every situation. He had NHL Standings Campbell Conference Patrick Division W L T Pts Philadelphia 17 5 4 38 NY Islanders....' 16 5 5 37 Washington 8 6 9 25 Galgary 10 9 5 25 NY Rangers 6 15 4 15 Smythe Division W L T Pts St. Louis 15 6 4 34 Vancouver 13 7 5 31 Chicago 9 12 5 23 Colorado 910 4 22 Pdmondton .....6 12 5 17 Winnipeg 1 16 7 9 Wales Conference Norris Division W L T Pts Us Angeles 16 6 1 33 Montreal 12 10 2 26 Hartford;. ...8 12 4 20 Pittsburgh 6 13 4 16 Detroit 3 15 4 10 Adam?

Howe, 22, who set a Dodger rookie record for saves with 17 and posted a 7-9 record with a 2.65 earned run average, was named on 22 of the 24 ballots. Gullickson and Smith each were named on 17 ballots. For the first time since the BBWAA began voting on rookies in 1947, a 5-3-1 point system was used in determining the winner. Each writer participating in the voting was asked to select three candidates. Others receiving votes were infielder Ron Oester of Cincinnati, pitcher Dave Smith of Houston, pitcher Jeff Reardon of New York, pitcher Al Holland of San Francisco, outfielder Leon Durham of Philadelphia and pitcher Bob Walk of Philadelphia. Howe is the ninth Dodger to capture NL top rookie honors since the inception of the award in 1947.
