TIME OUT By Steve Gillispie star Sports Writer Monday, Morch 20. 1972 'I'hf IJni-..ln S«»r Ijt NFL Owners To Discuss Threat Of Free Agents SPLIT BETWEEN PLAYERS AND MANAGEMENT SEEN AS BIGGEST PROBLEM College Cage Coaches Busy Kven though the season has ended, this is one of the busiest times of the year for state college basketball coaches. In addition to recruiting chores, many are also making final plans for their summer basketball schools that high school athletes attend. Hastings College’s Lynn Farrell has his fourth annual cage school set for two sessions. May 28-June 3 and Aug. 6-12. Farrell has pulled something of a coup by featuring Columbus High School’s Jack Johnson. Johnson could be quite a drawing card since his Class A championship team broke an 11-year domination by Omaha and Lincoln schools. However, the Hastings' school won't overshadow the Doane College basketball school much, if any. Tiger coach Bob Erickson’s lineup of coaches almost reads like Who’s Who in Nebraska prep cage circles. Among the coaches who will appear at Doane are Crete’s Walt Harris, Cozad’s Bill Ramsey, Omaha Westside’s Tom Hall. Pawnee City’s Larry Ribble, Milford’s Denny Bargen, Seward’s Rod Felix, Lincoln Southeast’s Wally McNaught, Kearney’s Tom Rine, Dorchester’s Jack Owen, and Springfield- Platteview’s Bill Buza. The school at Crete will be held for the ninth year HONOLULU — In the heat of continued management player hostility, National Football League owners began meetings here Monday, with private confabs expected on the more than 50 players in a position to play out their options. Knowledgeable sources believe the owners must begin to prepare for the possibility of large numbers of players becoming free agents. Records in the office of Commissioner Pete Rozelle show there are 58 players who, if not signed by May 1, will become free agents. Some have not signed because of the vvage- price freeze, others have said or implied that they plan to play out their options if their demands, monetary or otherwise, are not met. The list includes IX'troit quarterback Creg Landry: Minnesota quarterback Cary Cuozzo and wide receiver A1 Denson: Chicago wide receiver Dick Gordon: New York Giants’ defensive back Spider Lockhart, and Fred Dryer, the defensive end traded by the Giants to the New England Patriots. Indications arc that the major problem is not the governmental wage guidelines but the ideological split between the players and management. Only last week, in testimony before Congress at a House subcommittee hearing on labor management problems in professional sports, a group of players said relations between owners and players are marked by- mutual mistrust and lack of respect. “It’s sad to say, but it’s true.’’ said Bill Curry, veteran center for the Baltimore Colls and a member of the executive committt-e of the NFL Players' As.sociation. “Each side doubts the sincerity of the other, and I think it’s dangerous forthc spfirt.” The problem is two-fold—a (|uest for as much money as the owners will bear and dis.satisfaction with the option clause According to the players’ assrjciation, the player who has played out his option is not a true free agent because l)efore another club can sign him it must agree to compensate his old club to it.' satisfaction. Wholesale team-jumping by players who have played out their options and become free agents is viewed with e x t r e ni e seriousness by the NFL owners. In an attempt to try to establish better lines of communication with the players, the owners already have taken one .step. They rcf’ently appointed John Thompson, a longtime club administrator, as executive director of an owners’ player relations committee Modification of the option clause would be one other step the players would find to their liking, but owners arc not likely to do that In the public agenda for the owners’ meeting.s are a number of rule change proposals. .-'election of a Super Howl site and (liscueHion of the future of the Chicago All- Star game. JACKLIN WINS PLAYOFF and has three Aug. 13-18. sessions — # June 25-July I, Aug. 6-12 and Basketball schools like are credited with helping in the state. the ones at Hastings and Doane to improve the quality of play There will also be schools held at several other state colleges this summer. Interested prep cagers should note most schools have a limited enrollment so application should be made early. One Nebraska Lass Fam Auxier of Salem was the lone Nebraska starter on the .Midland College girls’ basketball team. She didn’t play the sport in high school but managed to crack an otherwise all-Iowa lineup the last two years. The senior helped her team to two state titles and a 37-5 record. Fam is now out for softball and was a member of last year’s Warrior team. The Concordia Teachers College’s bowling team took top honors at a meet recently. .Mark Baacke and Warren Ruland both rolled over 200 in the Bulldogs’ last series in taking the win. Honors for members have been announced. Jacobs Falters At Jacksonville . . . FIRST VICTORY SINCE 1970 Jacksonville, Fla. (iP) — Tony Jacklin, a bright and breezy Briton, beat John Jacobs on the first hole of a sudden death playoff Sunday and won the $25,000 first prize in the Greater Jacksonville Open golf tournament. Jacklin scored a routine par four on the first extra hole to notch his first victory on the American tour since his 1970 United States Open championship. Jacobs, a Vietnam of the Concordia basketball team Senior Ron Schroeder was picked the Most Valuable Player and honorary captain by his teammates. The 6-1 Wauwatosa, Wis., native averaged 14.4 points a game. He was also named to an all-opponent team selected by Luther College of Decorah. Iowa. Tom Faber was chosen the most improved player as he scored 94 points and grabbed 101 rebounds in 27 games. The 6-4 eager is a junior and will be back next year. Concordia distance runner Dan Cloeter says he won’t try and pass another runner again on the inside. He did in the Haylett Mile at the Nebraska Intercollegiate Athletic Conference’s indoor track meet and won but was disqualified. He apparently stepped on the inside of the track for more than two consecutive strides. Nebraska Regents Pick Fieldhouse Architects By Associated Press A divided University of .Nebraska Board of Regents Sunday selected two firms — one from Lincoln and one from Omaha — as joint architects for the r»ew $12 million University of Nebraska-Lincoln Fieldhouse. A 4-3 vote gave the business to the Leo A. Daly Co. of Omaha and the Lincoln combine of Clark, Davis & Associates. A motion to include a third firm, Kirkham-Michael & Associiitcs of Omaha in the approved archiUectural group was defeated on a 4-3 vote, as was a proposal to make the Leo A. Daly firm the lone architect for the job. The Legislature recently approved a plan to use $2.4 million a year of cigarette tax revenue to finance a bond issue permitting an immediate start on construction of the multipurpose fieldhouse-coliseum. NU President D. B. Varner called the special regents meeting, explaining he wished to see the project get moving before bond interest costs increase. No other business was transacted at the meeting. The division on the regents board stemmed from concern expressed by some that Lincoln firms have received an inordinate amount of business from NU projects and non-Lincoln firms should be dealt in more fully in view of the university’s statewide nature. Voting in favor of the motion to hire the Daly and Clark- Davis firms were regents Robert R. Koefoot of Grand Island, Robert L. Raun of Minden, J. G. Elliott of Scottcbluff and Edward Schwartzkopf of Lincoln. Voting “no” were regents James H. Moylan of Omaha, Robert J. Prokop of Wilber and Kermit Wagner of Schuyler. Regent Kermit R. Hansen of Omaha abstained from all votes. Initially, regent Wagner moved to select three firms — Daly, KLrkham-Michaels and Davis-Clark — as architects. Regent Prokop. supporting this effort, said there has been “marked inequity in architectural selections’’ in the past. He s.'iid r’1 architeHs are not receiving equal opportunity to share in the university’s business and said there is need to apply “equality and good sense’’ to such matters. The same 4-3 split rejected Wagner’s three-firm motion, as well as an amendment offered by Moylan, which would have designated the Daly firm as lone architect. A fiscal foundation for the fieldhouse, to be located on state fairgrounds adjoining the campus, was laid by the legislature last year when it increased state cigarette taxes from eight to 13 cents a package and directed that most of the added revenue be split between the fieldhouse and a new state office building. Gov. J. J. Exon o»bjected to the earmarking and the projects never got started, although money accumulated. a Vietnam war veteran who recently completed a six-month suspension from the tour, bogied the playoff hole when he hit the top of a tree with his second shot and failed on a 12-foot downhill putt. The 27-year-old Jacklin birdied the 71st hole to catch the front-running Jacobs with a four-under par final round 68. The 6-2 Jacob matched his 283 total-five-under par on the Hidden Hills Country Club course — with a final round 70. Australian veteran Bruce Crampton finished birdie-birdie to tie Rod Funseth for third place in this $125,0C0 event. They were locked just one stroke back at 284. Crampton had a 70 and Funseth 71. Bob Murphy, who shared the lead starting this rain-delayed final round, had to rally for a 72 and 285. John Schlee was alone at 286 with a 69. Arnold Palmer had a 69 and was tied at 287 with young Jerry Herd, who made a fast finish with a five-under-par 67. They were the only players under par. Lee Trevino had a 72—288 and defending champion Gary Palyer of South Africa took a 73-291. Jacklin, who scored his first American triumph in this tournament in 1968, is on the rebound from a poor 1971 season when he finished 102nd on the money list with only $19,977. He’s already won over $48,000 this year. He got off to a fast start, running in a whopping putt, perhaps 50 feet in length, for a birdie on the second hole, then scored an electrifying eagle two on the 383-yard third. The handsome young man from Elsham, England — the son of a lorry driver and the first Englishman in some 50 away’’ with bogeys on the fourth and sixth, once in the water and once after hitting a tree. From then on it was a scramble, with Jacobs at one point holding a two stroke lead. Jacklin, playing one hole in front of him, finally got it back with a birdie on the 17th. a 548- yard par five. He reached the green with a three wood second shot and two-putted from 60 feet. Jacklin’s api^oach putt was a beauty, lagging up to about six inches. He tapped in for the bird. “Then I failed to birdie the hole,” Jacobs said. “That was the difference.” x-Tonv Jacklin, 52^000 70-71-74-68-283 John Jacobs, $14,300 Bruce Crampton, $7,350 Rod Funseth, $7,350 Bob AAurphy, $5,125 70-7^73-72-285 John Schlee, $4,500 ?o 7 Herrv Heard, $3,842.50 • ■ ^^'73'74-67 287 Arnold Palmer, $3,842.50 .71-72-75-69—287 Bobbv Nichols, $3,000 Lee Trevino, $3,000 .......

But Kinney, a first round draft choice of the Chiefs, was speaking of his career in basketball . . . not football. Kinney and 11 seniors from Nebraska’s football tieam experienced a frustrating time Sunday night at Pershing Auditorium before 2,000 fans, dropping a 90-72 basketball game to the Kansas City Chiefs. “It looks like my basketball days are over for good,” said Kinney, who scored just six points and got into early foul trouble. “I think I'll concentrate on making the football team and forget about traveling around playing basketball.” The Chiefs’ ‘old’ men — nine- year veterans Buck Buchanan and Dave Hill — led the professional team’s attack. Buchanan scored 22 points and Hill added 18. Beth have been playing with the basketball team since it originated in 1964. “It’s not really any tougher now than it was in 1964,” said Buchanan, the Chiefs’ 6-7. 275- pound defensive tackle. “I just enjoy playing basketball and 1 can’t think of a better way to stay in shape during the off­ season.” Buchc«nan also enjoys the —MEN'S STATE BOWLING MEET NEARS CONCLUSION— Kossek: Florom Likely To Challenge Leaders By RANDY EICKHOFF Star Sports Writer With only one week remaining in the Men’s State Bowling Tournament, it appears that the winners have already been determined. But at; least one threat remains—Roger Florom who has yet to bowl his singles and doubles events in the tournament. “He (Florom) shot a 672 in his team event at Parkway,” says Bernie Kossek, the tournament director. “So he’s definitely a threat to the all­ event leader. And he could take the lead in the singles, too. “But right now, I think he’s probably the only one remaining who’s got a shot at it. Someone may get hot and roll a real good game with a high handicap, but as far as known ability, he’s got the best shot at it.” The current leader in the singles. Bill Straub, fired a 742 scratch during last Sunday’s competition to take the lead in the handicap and high scratch and tie for the lead with Jim Dill in th#» aM-events. i Straub, a scratch bowler, and Dill, a past winner of the doubles title, both carry 1994 scores in the all-events. And, oddly enough, both were members of the Diamond Bar and Grill team, last year’s defending champions, who all but sewed the winner’s spot up by totaling a new state record of 3234 scratch and a 3279 handicap during the team event two weeks ago. Though the record for high scratch of 778 set by Rocky Adams of Fremont in 1939 will probably not fall this year, Straub’s 742 is the next highest in the history of the tournament. The doubles mark of 1389 set by Charles and Richard Hoffman in 1967 was eclipsed in the handicap by William Graham and John Culp of Fairbury who teamed for a 1291 scratch which, coupled with their 102-pin handicap, gave them a 1393 total for the doubles lead. The only records that haven’t been equalled or broken so far this year are in the all-events where Fremont’s Dick W’enkelman scored a 2050 in 1939 and the handicap when Gary L. Tod.d used an 81-pin handicap to finish with a 790 in 1965 and, of course the 778 by Adams. Kossek remembers Wenkelman’s 2050 all-events win the 1939 and Adams’ victory in the same year. Both appeared well out of it just before their last games when Kossek, who was leading each event, decided to go home. “Rocky had to fire a 279 to beat me in the singles in his last game,” Kossek recalls. “So I thought for sure I had won that event. And I had a real good lead in the all-events w hen I set the record of 2018 so I tiiought I was the winner there. “Well, Rocky went ahead and rolled a 3C0 in his last game to beat me by 21 pins and set the record in singles and Wenkelman broke my new record in all-events with 2050 to beat me out. I got second in both events.” Kossek had to wait until 1956 when he won the singles with a 681 to take the crown he almost had in 1939. Singles Bill Straub, Lincoln .. .

Basketball is just like any other sport to me and you always work hard to win.” The Chiefs, behind Hill’s long-range shooting, took a 3012 Icisd at the end of the first quarter and the Corphuskers couldn’t gel witiihi 10 points after that.

Cram Set To Compete With UCLA By .Associated Press Dpiiny Crum U going home lo face the master—Jtrhn Wooden. “I c.nn’t wait to get back to !x)s Angeles for the Nationals,” Coach Crum said .Saturday after hi.-, fourth ranked Louisville Cardinals beat Kansas State 72-65 and earned a berth against mighty lop rated UCLA—A dynasty Crum helped build—in Thursday night's semifinals of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Un-beatcn UCLA, seeking its sixth eon.secutive N C A A champicnship. won its regional over L^ng Beach State 73-57. The other semi final game will match No. 2 North Carolina, a 7.3-59 win.ver over No. 3 Pennsylvania, against 10th- rated Flori'.ia State, which tn unced Kentucky 73-54. Crum, who was the backbone of UCLA's recruiting network fcr t'.ie past three seasons, leit for Louisville with Wooden’s blessings. “I consider Denny a top head coaching prospect.” Wooden said at the time. “He does a tremendous job of recruiting. I have no hesitancy in recommending h,m. I always hope when 1 have an assistant he’s the type other schools would want.” Crum played under Wooden for two years and was his assistant coach for three. Ht' has giiided Louisville to a 24-3 record and isn’t «^ueamish about tackling the best. “We’d just like to play anyone when it gets down to the final fcur.’’ he said, “but UCL.A has always been gocd to me and from an emotional standpoint I'd like to see them in the semifinals against us.’’ Crum will get his wish, even though he bemoaned the fact that his team lacks a killer instinct. It blew Kansas State off the court with a 49-20 burst in the opening 18 minutes, then let the margin shrink to three points in the late going. “I don't know what we can do for that,'’ Crum said, “but we’d better find out fast.” Jim Price paced the Cardinals against Kansas State with 25 points. UCL.A didn’t have i'ts expected trouble with Long Beach as hct-sucoting Henry Biibby pumped in 23 points and 6- foot-11 Bill Walton added 19.- That, ’n fact, was Wooden’s strategy. Woe den said he planned that “if they covered Henry, the boys should give the ball to Bill, ar»d if they covered Bill, they s.iculd give the ball to Henry.” But the veteran coach didn't seem overjoyed about having to face Crum's team in the next round. “He’s coaching Louisville and I’m coaching UCLA,” he said. “We don’t play Coach Crum; we play Louisville.” All Events High scratch—Bill Straub, Lincoln, 742.
