Many are wondering if Coach Johnny Majors is leaving the Cyclone job in favor of a similar position at Baylor. Majors has denied he's moving. Hut will the same denial be made after the Cyclones play Louisiana State Dec. 18 in the Sun Bowl? At the moment most Important to Majors is Saturday's game. The prediction here is a Cyclone victory 28-14. Last week we experienced the second poorest record we've had in making predictions in something like 20 years. Once we were below 60 per cent. The record showed 31 right, 18 wrong and two ties for 63.3 per cent. For the season we stand as 401 right, 151 wrong and 11 ties for 71.9 per cent.

Wichita 13 Havlicck Leads Celts To Win BOSTON (AP) - John Havlicck scored 14 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter Wednesday night and led the Boston Celtics to a 108-100 National Basketball Association victory over the Buffalo Braves. The Celtics, who built an early 18-8 lead, took a 61-56 half time edge as Havlicck and Hock Island's 'Don Nelson combined for 27 points in the first two quarters. Grouped around their coach, Don Morris, from left, are the Alleman starters: Mike Kiss, Andy Sottos, Greg Schneider, Jeff Widdel, and George Tometich. (Staff Photo) Insights Continued From Page 57' George Tometich (6-2), and Joe Barbour (6-2) plus Andy Sottos (6-2), a transfer from Orion who was ineligible last year but-a starter this year. CENTRAL AT UTHS - Central, with Don Moriarty pumping in 29 points, knocked off Dubuque Wahlert 58-47 in its opener Tuesday but should be faced with a tougher test in the Panthers. The UTHS crew is inexperienced but does feature one of the area's best one-on-one players in 6-3 Bruce Mason, who averaged better than 16 points a game before being dropped from the squad late last year. Dave Hanson (6-1) is the only other performer Coach Cliff Talley has with much experience, but he does have some height in Pete Kaha (6-6), Jim Fonteyne (6-6) and Tim Hughes (6-5). Twins Dale and Darrell Koenig (both 5-11) also figure in the Panther plans. ROCK ISLAND AT ASSUMPTION - The condition of Assumption star guard Pat Broders is the big question as the Knights try to rebound from a 88-72 setback a week ago at the hands of Clinton St. Mary's. Broders, who had 23 points in a losing effort, has been nursing a bad shoulder hurt in the final period of the St. Mary's tilt and has had his arm in a sling up to Wednesday. Rock Island coach Bob Riley is rebuilding with only his son Jack (5-11) and Lorenzo Turner (6-3) returning with much experience. Turner will be the biggest Rock starter with Dave Breiby (64)), Marv Haymon (6-1) and Willie Seward (5-11) comprising the rest of the lineup, putting Riley's team at a distinct height disadvantage. PLEASANT VALLEY AT RTVERDALE - The Rams, one of the area's powerhouses a year ago, will be debuting in their new fieldhouse and coach Gordy Kinkead has only one starter, Rick Stearns (6-4), returning. Gary Lanzen (6-2), the club's sixth man, is back but Kinkead figures Dave Bull (6-6, 220-pound all-league football tackle) is the key. Other starters' will be guards Mike Frits (5-10) and Larry Wilson (6-1). Pleasant Valley coach Ron Dalton figures his Spartans may take their lumps this year since he has no experienced hands. Dalton will choose from Mike Jones (5-11), Keith Hoist (6-0), Mel Francisco (5-9), Randy Winslow (7-5), Scott Willis (5-7), Dwayne Haessler (5-10) and Lynn Broughton (5-11). Winslow missed last season because of a knee operation while Willis is a transfer from Omaha. NORTH SCOTT AT MAQUOKETA - The Lancers, with only guards Jim Rasche (6-1) and Nile Fiala (6-1) returning as veterans, face the WaMac Conference favorite in Maquoketa who belted DeWitt 79-47 Tuesday night. Coach Larry Lake of North Scott, figuring his team has some potential if it can hurdle the rough opening portion of its schedule." Conigliaro f To Salt Lake ANAHEIM (AP) - The California Angels said Wednesday outfielder Tony Conigliaro has been assigned to Salt Lake City of the Pacific Coast League because of his "own indecision and medical situation." Harry Dalton, new Angels general manager, said he discussed the move with Conigliaro and "he was agreeable. If he decides that he wants to resume his career, we will bring him to spring training." THE ANGELS announced last week that Conigliaro, 26, had been placed on the disabled list and would receive his full salary for the 1971 season, estimated at $70,000. Conigliaro quit the team in July and complained of deteriorating vision. Later he filed a grievance with the Major League Players Association to be placed on the disabled list. The vision problem stemmed from an injury to his left eye when he was hit by a pitched ball in 1967. He sat out 1968 and came back with the Boston Red Sox to hit 20 home runs in 1969 and 36 in 1970. CALIFORNIA acquired him in a trade last winter. In 74 games with California last season, Conigliaro batted .222 with four home runs and 15 runs batted in. ' The Angels also announced that Winston Llenas, 28-year-old infielder, has been assigned to the Salt Lake farm team. The moves give the Angels a 38-player roster, leaving two openings for possible drafts next Monday , at the winter meetings in Phoenix. Honor Two Ex-Angels will have to score at least three or four times. Which brings to mind another titanic struggle such as this 25 years ago Notre Dame vs. Army. Johnny Lujack well should remember, too. Army then had Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard. The Irish had such fine running backs as Emil Sitko and Terry Brennan, along with the All-American Lujack. A high-scoring game was anticipated as both teams had been running up big scores on opponents. So what happened? It ended in a scoreless tic. We don't think that will happen this afternoon at Norman, Okla., but we aren't looking for a point spree either. Without going into the whys and wherefores, we pick Nebraska 10-7. Continued From Page 57 the decade" against second-rated Oklahoma. The Cornhusker team left Lincoln's municipal airport about 12:45 p.m. CST aboard an Eastern Airlines charter flight to Norman. They will return this evening. THE TEAM was accompanied to the airport from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus by about 400 persons, most of whom were students. At the airport, the team was given a proclamation signed by Gov. J. J. Exon declaring today's kickoff time to be "Wishbone Breaking Hour," a reference to Oklahoma's Wishbone-T offense. "Loyal Nebraskans across the nation may participate in the festive breaking of the wishbone ceremony," said the proclamation. Amidst songs and yells, Nebraska Coach Bob Devancy said his team was going to Norman to play a "great" Oklahoma team but he said he expected Nebraska to win. Campus pep organizations sponsored a 45-minute rally prior to the plane's departure. COLUMBUS, Ohio - Two former Quad-City Angel players and another who once played .with the Quad-City Braves today were named on the. class AAA all-star baseball team. Ex-Angels to be honored are second-baseman Billy Parker and catcher George Pena, along with Adrian Garrett, a former Braves' players.
