(UPI Photo) Major Football Powers Push For Reorganization By MIKE RABUN UPI Sports Writer DALLAS (UPI) — Major college football powers have protested for years their fate was being decided by NCAA schools who knew nothing about the problems they face. Now those football-playing schools are going to organize in hopes of convincing the rest of the NCAA institutions that what is good for big-time football is good for them, too. too. And what they want most of all is a reorganizatipn of the NCAA so that only the top football-playing schools in the country are in Division 1. Representatives of 58 schools met Monday as a next- to-last organizational step in forming the College Football Association, a sort of lobby group that will carry the sport's message to the NCAA. Some of the most well-known figures in college football were present—including Nebraska Athletic Director Bob Devaney and Arkansas Athletic Director Frank Broyles. Spokesmen said formation of the group was not intended as a threat to the NCAA. "If anyone interprets our organization as being intended at lessening the present restrictions and trying to write a blank check for what we want to do and turn us into pro football teams, they are incorrect," said Father Edmond Joyce, vice president of Notre Dame. Earl Ramer, faculty representative from the University of Tennessee, said the group would work within the framework of the NCAA. But, no matter how unified the major college schools are when they go to the NCAA convention in Miami next month, they will still be in the minority. There are more than 700 voting NCAA members. "We will have to win our points through rational arguments," said Joyce. The final organizational meeting for the CFA is set for February arid discussions have been going on for 18 months. "What triggered this action is the obvious fact that the divisional concept in the NCAA needs refinement," said Joyce. "The NCAA has failed to come to grips with the probfem." To qualify for membership in the CFA, a school must have a 30,000-seat stadium, must have averaged 20,000 in attendance per home game tor the past three years and must have awarded 80 scholarships the past three years. Members of seven conferences and 18 independent schools will be invited to attend, but no representative of the Pacific Eight or Big Ten was present at Monday's meeting. Eagles' Lineman Stabbed To Death BLACKWOOD, N.J. (UPI) — The wife of Philadelphia Eagles' defensive lineman Blenda Gay is being held on $100,000 bail on charges of stabbing her husband to death with a kitchen knife while their 3-year-old daughter slept nearby. Police said Roxanne Gay, 26, was charged with murder _ and atrocious assault and' battery just a few hours after her husband was stabbed in the throat and died at John F. . Kennedy Memorial Hospital in nearby Stratford early Monday. The couple's ground-floor apartment showed signs of a struggle, including overturned furniture and large blood stains in the foyer and the steps. Camden County Prosecutor Thomas Shusted said the Gays' daughter, Fonda, slept 'in their $260-a-month garden apartment during the argument. Friends of Gay, a 255-pound veteran of three years in the National Football League, said they were unaware of any domestic problems that might have led to the stabbing. "He always seemed to be with his family," said a spokesman for the Eagles, who first signed the Fayetteville (N.C.). State graduate during training camp last year. Gay moved from the Oakland Raiders to the San Diego Charges and then to the BLENDA GAY New York Jets since he entered the league in 1973. He finally earned a starting berth on the Eagles. Coach Dick Vermeil described Gay as a "hardworking guy who was very much respected among the 1 squad. He was a very warm person. He gave a lot. It's just a shock." Eagles' spokesman Jim Gallagher said, "He was a beautiful guy. He was a good guy." Gallagher said he last saw Gay at a Christmas party given by Eagles Dec. 11. "His wife and little daughter were there and he was enjoying himself," said Gallagher. But Shusted said the couple had a history of family arguments. "There have been problems in the past, of course, but how aggravated they were isn't known," the prosecutor said. Gloucester Township Police Chief Seth Stichler said Mrs. Gay had filed charges of assault and battery against her husband this year but later withdrew them. Super Night At Super Bowl Not Just For Super Fans NEW YORK — (UPK — Entertainment and sports events have as much in common as dollars and cents. That'.s the view of Pierre Cossette, who specializes in putting together television specials. His latest effort is "Super Night At the Sup, • Bowl," which CBS will broadcast from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena Jan. 8,9:3011 p.m. Eastern time, on the eve of the sudden death World Series of football. Cossette organized the first Super Night-Super Bowl show last year, earned dandy ratings, and plans to expand the concept to Super Nights for events ranging from the 75th anniversary of Las Vegas to the U.S. Open Championship tennis competition at Forest Hills. The Super Bowl show business and sports stars range from Lynda Carter as "Wonder Woman" to O.J. Simpson, with some big talent in between. Sammy Davis Jr., Elliott Gould and Andy Williams will host the show. John Wayne will be on hand to present the UPI Annual Professional Football Awards (a job Henry Kissinger filled last year), and Angie Dickinson will appear as the first woman sports reporter in a locker room full of naked athletes. "The show is aimed at the great, broad television audience," Cossette said in an interview. "The Super Bowl is the largest single event on television and this is a television show tied like an arrow to that game 14 hours later, tied to the ambiance, the tempo, the electricity. "This show is a piece of show business and that is what football, baseball, golf, all of them are — show business. "Ball players and actors are exactly the same. They use different artifacts, but they're the same. They start out at the same low salaries, looking for a break, willing to work for practically nothing, and they end up successful and holding out, with managers and agents and the whole thing. "Entertainment or sports, it's still buying and selling and tickets. "So it's a natural to mix entertainment and sports in a straight piggyback show like this that combines the two." Cossette believes "Super Night" attracts so many viewers because the Super Bowl is on everybody's mind the night before the big game. "All across America, that's the excitement that night. The housewives may scream like eagles, but their husbands are going to watch the Super Bowl," he said, adding that even the housewives might like the "Super Night" show. "The whole thing starts with a guy with a desk and a waste basket. That's me. He has an idea that he sells, then he lines up the best stars available. That's show business."
