2 B Iowa City Press-Citizen Friday, January 8. 1978 Knight fumes despite Indiana win over Iowa " uuaLii uuuuv iviiihiil rt inuiniia Hoosiers had just rattled off an 18-point vu.iuiy w upen weir Dig ien con-ference basketball season in a way that five teams did nnt. ' But to hear Knight speak after Thursday night's 69-51 drubbing of Iowa, one would think the llth-rated Hoosiers were one of those teams that ; shared defeat in their initial conference ; cuLuuiiiers. "I thniurht nnr nlav nffpnsivelv In this game was the worst I've seen since I've been here. I don't think we were thinking about playing basketball tonight," said Knight. Mike Woodson Dumoed in 17 points and Wayne Radford added 14 as the Hoosiers outmanned an inexperienced lowa team. I "We were our worst enemy. We beat ourselves," said Iowa Coach Lute Olson. Elsewhere in the Big Ten, Michigan State surprised Minnesota 87-83, Michigan downed Northwestern 8045, Purdue thumped Illinois 95-85 and Ohio State stopped Wisconsin 77-61. Freshman Earvin Johnson canned 31 points, including three straight free inrows wiin t.ii letx, as Micmgan state roarea dhck irom a seven-pomi aencii in the final four minutes to defeat Minnesota. Grady , From page IB Thompson of Iowa City tells me he talked with ex-Iowa star Paul Krause of the Minnesota Vikings a couple of weeks ago and Krause says his interception against the Los Angeles Rams in a playoff game won't count in "official" NFL all-time records. Only regular-season records count, Thompson quotes Krause as saying, so Krause will have to play another year to have a chance to tie or surpass Emlen Tunnell's all-time NFL record for pass interceptions. Right now, Krause doesn't know whether he'll try for another season. He'd just like to rest for awhile. Post-mortem on the bowl games: Best passers Matt Cavanaugh of Pitt and Guy Benjamin of Stanford. Best all-around quarterbacks Jeff Rutledge of Alabama, Rob Hertel of USC and Ron Calcagni of Arkansas. Best runnning back Roland Sales of Arkansas. Speaking of Hertel of USC, do you recall that he received his collegiate "baptism" in Iowa City early in the 1975 season? Vince Evans was supposed to start at quarterback, but didn't make the trip because of an injured thumb. Iowa recovered two early fumbles for a 10-0 first quarter lead, but sophomore : Hertel, in his first start at quarterback, rallied the Trojans to a 27-16 win by . running for two touchdowns and ' passing to Randy Simmrin for another. . Another "Iowa City connection:" Arkansas Coach Lou Holtz was a graduate assistant at Iowa under Jerry Burns for two seasons in the early 1960s. After that, Holtz coached at Ohio State under Woody Hayes before becoming a head coach at the college level. After watching the bowl games, I've decided that what Iowa needs more than anything else in football right now is quickness. Is that a profound thought? In a game of ups-and-downs, the Spartans, now 9-1, led by as many as 14 points early in the game, but lost their momentum early in the second half when Minnesota, 44, came on to take the lead. The way Minnesota Coach Jim Dutcher saw it, the teams played three games. "They won the first one, we won the middle and they got the most important one at the end," he said. Johnson sank the three consecutive free throws after a personal foul and technical foul ware called on Minnesota's Bill Harmon. The three-point conversion gave the Spartans a 77-76 lead they never relinquished. Purdue got 21 points from Walter Jordan and 20 each from Wayne Walls and Joe Barry Carroll as Purdue improved its season mark to 6-4. Illinois, also 6-4, was led by Audie Mathews and Rich Adams with 15 points apiece. Joel Thompson and Alan Hardy both scored 18 points to lead defending champion Michigan, 6-3, past Northwestern, 4-6. Jerry Marifke led Northwestern with 15 points. Michigan Coach Johnny Orr missed' the game because of the flu, as did Northwestern's top scorer, Tony Allen. . Freshman Ken Page's 18 points paced Ohio State's victory over Wisconsin. The Buckeyes hiked their record to 8-2, while Wisconsin, led by Bill Pearson's 15 points, dropped to 44. Conference play continues Saturday with Indiana hosting Illinois, Iowa traveling to Ohio State, Northwestern meeting Purdue and Michigan State remaining at home against Wisconsin Minnesota meets Michigan Sunday in a televised game.

Denver Bronco Coach Red Miller, named today by the Associated Press as the NFL coach of the year, holds up an orange T-shirt sent him by a Chinese basketball team in San Francisco. The shirt proclaims 1978 AP laserphoto as the "Year of the Horse," in Chinese symbolism. Miller hopes the shirt is right as he prepares the Broncos for their Super Bowl meeting with the Dallas Cowboys a week from Sunday. Red Miller NFL coach of year NEW YORK (AP) - Red Miller, who guided the defense-minded Denver Broncos into the playoffs for the first time in their history and into the Super Bowl as well was named National Football League Coach of the Year today by The Associated Press. Miller's team had the best American Conference record (12-2) in the regular season, then knocked off the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-21 and defending NFL champion Oakland 20-17 in the AFC title game. He received 58 of the 84 votes cast by a nationwide panel of sports writers and broadcasters, three from each league city. Don Shula of the Miami Dolphins received 25 votes. The remaining vote went to Leeman Bennett of the Atlanta Falcons.

So Robert Miller, who had spent 17 years as an assistant coach in the pros, the last four developing New England's explosive offense, was hired. He succeeded John Ralston as head coach of the discontented Broncos, also-rans from the day they were born in the American Football League in 1960 until last year, a team which didn't even post a winning season until 1973. It was also Miller's second term with the Broncos. He was their offensive line coach from 196345. "He's one in a million," said Lyle Alzado, Denver's All-Pro defensive end. "I'd go out and die for that man." Miller's first major move was to acquire Craig Morton, a discontented backup quarterback to Roger Staubach at Dallas and an ineffective starter with the New York Giants for a dozen years. It was a one-for-one deal. The Broncos got Morton, the' Giants got quarterback Steve Ramsey. Morton became the AFC's No.2 passer. Ramsey was cut before the season began. "Red is a most unusual man," said Morton. "When I first met him, I felt something special was about to happen. At our first meeting he said we were coming into a unique situation, a new quarterback and a new coach coming to a team that was 9-5. He said, 'We can do an awful lot with this team. Let's get together and do it.' I said I was excited, too." The Broncos' season began with victories over St. Louis, Buffalo, Seattle and Kansas City. But wait, the experts said. Let's see what happens when they have to play Oakland, the defending Super Bowl champions, five-time division champions and winners in 26 of 34 games against Denver. What happened was that Denver demolished the Raiders 30-7. The Broncos' winning streak reached six games, then Oakland beat them 24-14 but they followed that with six more victories in a row, deposing the Raiders as AFC West champs. Denver finished the season with a 14-6 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the team it meets in the Super Bowl Jan. 15. AP names Walter Payton as most valuable in NFL CHICAGO (AP) - Now that the Chicago Bears' season is over, star runner and offensive-line booster Walter Payton can take a break from patting others on the back. But that just isn't the unselfish, never-say-die character of the strong, compactly built man who lunges for extra yards and helps up tacklers when they finally bring him down. So after a panel of 84 sports writers and broadcasters had picked him on Thursday as the Associated Press' Most Valuable Player in the National Football League, his reaction was predictable. "I can't believe it. There's so many other guys in the league that I admire and I think are super players, and for me to get it is something that seems to be unreal. I can't believe it," he said by telephone from Hattiesburg, Miss., where he was quail-hunting. Well, then, who would the NFL's rushing king and NFC's top scorer vote for? He slithered past the question as deftly as he leaves potential tacklers hugging air. "It's just like a list of who's who. There's guys that play defense that play well and on offense. To name one personally would be an injustice," he Who won the regular seoson gome between Minnesota and Dallas this year? The Cowboys won in overtime, 16-10. Name the player who ran 90 yards for a touchdown with a blocked field goal attempt in ' last year's Minnesota-Los Angeles playoff.

Who scored the winning touchdown for Oakland in last year's 24-21 comeback victory over New England in the AFC divisional playoffs? Ken Stabler ran for a one yard touchdown with 10 seconds left. Who did Pittsburgh beat, 40-14, in the first round of last yeor's AFC playoffs? The .Baltimore Colts.

Corner of Clinton and Washington anywhere on m said. Payton got 57 MVP votes.. Two quarterbacks, Miami's Bob Griese and Denver's Craig Morton, were tied for second with 10 apiece. Payton's value to the Bears is beyond question. For the first time in 14 years, they reached post-season play. Their 9-5 record was their best since 1965. Payton, only 23 years old and in his third season out of Jackson State, led the league in rushing with 1,852 yards, third best in NFL history. The rest of the team ran for just 962 yards. His 27 pass receptions were second most on the Bears. And his combined rushing-receiving yardage of 2,121 was a whopping 46 percent of the Bears' total net offense. He also set two NFL records. His 275 yards rushing on Nov. 20 against Minnesota beat O.J. Simpson's one-game record of 273. His 339 carries for the season were seven more than Simpson's mark. And in 1976, he led the NFC in rushing with 1,390 yards. lessons, leagues and tournaments Cross country skiing Cross country ski initructlon will b. otltrtd Jan. 7 and Jan. 14.
