Thornridge no longer leader Alton Evening Telegraph Tuesday, January 5, 1971 B-3 SPRINGFIELD ( A P ) Eleven of 16 teams in the Associated Press poll of Illinois high school basketball were upset in holiday tournament play last week and No. 1 ranked Thornridge toppled from first to second place in a scrambled poll Tuesday. The Falcons of Thornridge, No. 1 for the first three weeks of voting, lost their grip on the AP Poll following an upset to small Mounds Meridian, 4840. The loss 'shattered a perfect 10-0 record by Thornridge. The new first rated team is Proviso East of Maywood, who gained in pollsters' eyes by defeating powerful LaGrange Lyons, 71-68, the defending slate champions. Proviso East won the Proviso West Holiday Tournament. Proviso has a record of 10-1, the single In?", to Thornridge. Proviso jumped to first from fourth berth, capturing 10 of 16 first place votes. Last week Thornridge had appeared in firm grip of the No. 1 place after racking up all 16 first place voles. Thornridge got two first place votes this week. The AP top 61 teams in- Jim Bell eludes four new names this week, one of them — Mendota — climbing from unrated status lo 6th place in one leap. Mendota, with its 13-0 record, won favor by defeating Quincy, which had been rated No.' 10. Quincy fell from the ratings altogether this week. Other new names in the top 16 are Carbondale, Granite City, and Danville. Carbondale won its own 16-team t o u r n a m e nl by whipping Mounds Meridian, 50-47. Granite City won at Pontiac by upending previously undefeated Normal U. High, 5447, Granite City also beat Chicago Heights Bloom, 67-66. Danville won its 16-tcam tournament by rolling over St. Joseph-Ogden, 52-44. The top 16 teams, first place votes, won-loss records and poll points: 1.

(AP Wire- photo) 10-1 A viewpoint from 'Siberia' Being stuck in Alton on New Year's Day — far, far removed from football's fantastic four-bowl beat — was relevant to Harry Caray's feelings about broadcasting in Oakland while exiled from St. Louis. . . "Like being in Siberia," cracked loose-lipped IIC. . . Televiewing is a poor substitute, to be sure. . . If there was anything surprising about Notre Dame's Cotton Bowl-picking of previously unbeaten Texas it was the bookies who established the Irish as seven- point underdogs. . . Apparently they were earned away by the Longhorns' awesome surgical slicing of overly-balleyhooed Arkansas just prior to the bowl bout . . . Obviously, they didn't consider that Texas had to twice come from behind and even then only won over the Irish with slightly more than a minute to go in their previous meeting. . . They're saying pro scouts are giving the snub to Irish quarterback Joe Theismann inasmuch as he stands only six feet and weighs but 177 ... That's reminiscent of when Notre Dame assigned Bernie Crimmins, then of the Irish coaching-scouting staff, to look-see a high schooler said to have college possibilities . . Crimins returned with a similar appraisal: "too small. The kid would get killed playing college ball." . . . The forlorned prepster's name was Johnny Unitas who, as the result of the turndown, became quite a quarterback at the University of Louisville ... And Baltimore's Colts haven't regretted Johnny U's presence, either . ?. Theismann established five season records this past fall and seven career marks over some highly- regarded triggermen of the glorious Irish past ... To name a few: John (Heisman Trophy) Hurate, Bob Williams, Terry Hanralty, George Gipp, Frank Tripucka, Angelo Bertelli and George Izo. . . In case you're wondering what it takes to become an athlete at Notre Dame, hear this: "All must maintain a grade average of 77," says Irish publicist Roger Valdiserri. "Other universities permit athletes a 70 passing average. Here it's 77.". . . That came about a few years ago when a NCAA probe discovered some muscular marauders getting by the books by majoring in handball or similar methods of gold-bricking. . . Valdiserri also disclosed that Irish schedules are drawn up 10 years in advance, contrary to thoughls here that five years represented the maximum. . . Eddie Phillips of Texas, outstanding triple-option general, was easily the outstanding offensive player of the Cotton Bowl while Notre Dame's Clarence Ellis, a defensive halfback, had no peer as a picket. . . And the latter reminded this viewer of a fine defensive player in these parts: Glen Lott, a valuable pan of Alton's undefeated and untied Redbirds. * * * * SUPER-SILLY SCHEDULING: Alton's basketball Redbirds, coining off the Carbondale Holiday Tournament gaff, running into a road engagement at Breese against potent Mater Dei Saturday night.

Sports authorities said the soccer clubs would need government subsidies if forced lo carry out expensive improvements lo their arenas. Attendance has been falling, and many of the learns art- in Ihe red. Flags flew at half staff in Glasgow, where Britain's worst sporting disaster occurred Saturday at the end of Ihe annual match between the local rivals, the Hangers and Ihe Celtics. Hundreds of fans stumbled and fell clown a concrete stairway outside Ibrox Park, rushing those on the bottom of Ihe pi'le. "People wore falling all over the place," said Clive Mitchell, who had gone to the malch with his son John, 21. "I passed out, and when I came to a policeman was holding me. I had been buried under a pile of bodies. "I saw my son lying next to me, lifeless. Then 1-passed out again." Eldon Griffiths, Britain's minister for sport, scheduled talks in London wilh adviser including Sir John Lang, whose 1!)G!) recommendations for safety improvements have not been fully carried out by the !)2 British major league clubs. Gordon Campbell, secretary of state for Scotland, was reporting to Prime Minister Edward Heath and his Cabinet after a visit to Glasgow. The munager of lilt- Rangers, William Waddell, said Glasgow city engineers and police had inspected and approved the stairway at Ibrox Park, which he described as among the safest stadiums in Britain. "No legislation could cover what happened al Ibrox," said Secretary Denis Follows of the football association. "I think it wan a sort of act of God." Walter's forgetting something .... Notre Dame or Nebraska No. 1? ... Ever play "King of the Hill" as a kid? . . . Well, the Irish defeated the hitherto No. 1 team, Texas, besides snapping the latter's 30-game winning binge despite a 11-1 season. . . So, which would you pick? . . . Nebraska, however, deserves strong consideration off its undefeated season, 11-0-1. . . Frankly, the Irish is the choice here. . . Wouldn't it be something if the judicial powers- thal-are would slop in the night before that alleged heavyweight fighl, scheduled Mar. 8, and slap America's No. 1 Draft Dodger in the klink for not showing up for reveille? That would make my 1971 complete! . . . My, my how Manager Walter Alston of Los Angeles' Dodgers has changed. Remember when he said, just last summer(?): "The day Richie Allen walks into my clubhouse is the day I walk out". . . Wonder what's keeping Walter? . . . Allen, just in case you're keeping score, has cracked 99 home runs and driven in 280 runs his last two seasons with two different clubs. And in the last 157 months he's been the property of three outfits, the Phillies, Cardinals and now the Dodgers. . . Everybody keeps trying to drag something out of the closet over Allen's departure to LA, when they really should get sick over the fact that the Cardinals gave away half a ball club to get him (Tim McCarver, Curt Flood and Joe Iloerner) . . . What's more, a certain degree of idolization is slill held in these parts for the biggest alleged deadbeat going, Orlando Cepeda, who also soured many tastes as a clubhouse lawyer . . . Cepeda's departure didn't siphon any tears here . . . Word has it that Hairy Caray ha, cut his going price to $50,000 in bidding for the Chicago White Sox broadcasting job, vacated this past season by long-time word- maker Bob Bison, now destined to toil under unpredictable Charley 0. Finley of Oakland's Athletics. . . Finley has an affinity for short, erratic relationships. . . * * * * Before closing out his spotless season here against Belleville East, conbtituents closer to head Coach Ed Yonkus •( Alton tattle-tale that he used a prayer attributed to Sir Jacob Astley before the battle of Newberry in 1614 A.I).: "Lord, I shall be very busy this day. I may forget Tbee; Hut do not Thou forget me." Red, Costello head All-Stars NEW YORK (UPI) — Larry Costello of the Milwaukee Bucks was named to head the West and Red Holzman of the New York Knickerbockers was listed lo coach the East today for the Jan. 12 National Basketball Associalion All- Star Game at San Diego. Coslello and Holzman were named by NBA Commissioner Waller Kennedy since their teams had the best won-losl percentage on the Monday morning of the week before the All-Star game. The Bucks were 30-7, an .811 percentage, while the Knicks were 31-12, a .721 mark. Holzman, coaching the Easl for the second consecutive season, beat the West, 142-135, last year at Philadelphia. Coslello is making his first appearance as an All-Star coach. The East holds a 14-(i edge i n All-Star competition, winning the last three and seven of the last eight. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Scott Pyles, last year's champion of the International Intercollegiate Games at Innsbruck, Austria, has turned professional, he announced Monday. Pyles, of Frisco, Colo., will join the International Ski Racers Association tour. He formerly raced for Western Stale College al Gunnison, Colo. More pro football in coming decade SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Commissioner Pole Ro/elle said Saturday he expects the National Football League lo add six more learns during the coming decade — bringing the league to 32 clubs. "We're not even thinking about expansion now," Uozclle told a news conference on the eve of Ihe National Football Conference championship game between San Francisco arid Dallas. "Bui it's u logical assumption that during this decade we're going to get to .'i2 teams. In the past decade, wo went from 12 to 26," he said. "However, 1 don't know when it. will come. The clubs waul to consolidate what they have now — and don't want to destroy the competitive balance." Ho/olle said several cities have, or will have, the population to support an expansion loam. He listed Seattle first and .said other possibilities are Phoenix, Portland, Tampa, Memphis, Birmingham, a regional team a r o u n (i Winston - Salem, Honolulu and Mexico City. The commissioner also told newsmen he expects the league's competition committee to go "back to the old drawing board" and add a couple more criteria for selection of the fourth "wild- tho card" competitor for conference playoffs. "We damn near got burned and had to flip a coin this year," Ho/elle said. But he said even if I wo more criteria were added, a coin flip — and not a playoff Kami! — would still be the ultimate tie-breaker. "After all, the fourth club g e t s a semi-free pass anyway," Ko/.clle said. "They didn't win their division." Tile commissioner also d e f e n d e (1 the television blackout of regular season and playoff games in Ihe cities where they are played, saying weather for football is not ideal and that even ticket buyers have failed to show up on bad days when (he Bailie is televised locally. "We don't want to be a studio show," he said. Ho/elle also said that a one- rninute commercial spot for this year's super bowl had sold for up lo $200,000; that 13 games woudl be telecast again next season on Monday nights; and that the ban on c i g a r e t t e commercials wouldn't make a "major difference" to pro football because their portion of television time had been declining steadily in the past four or live years — from 25 per cent of the spots to "considerably under 10 per cent." University of Illinois, Chicago Circle, whom they'll host, tonight at the Kcl- wardsville High gym wilh tin-off time at K:l, r ). "You've already beaten them, haven't you . . . on the road, too?" Uurdcllc asked, shaking his head. SIU did beat the Chikas, 85-81, at Chicago on the Cougars' three-game road trip before Christmas. "I've never in my life seen such an improvement made in a team as SIU has shown in one month's lime," said Burdettc. "How in the world did UMSL (the University of Missouri at St. Louis) beat, you all. . . what was the score (!)7-75) ... in your opening 'game?" lie asked. "We beat them in St. Louis Ihe night before SIU beat, us, 85-75, and then two nights ago. here in Martin, UMSL just barely beat us, 71-70, on a great individual performance by their Mark Bernson." SIU's coach Jim Dudley was asked the same question: "I prefer not to talk about that first game. Rather I'd like to look ahead. We still have two games remaining with UMSL (.Ian. Hi at Kd- wardsville and Feb. 8 at SI. Louis)." D u d I c y ' s message was explicit, although he didn't, articulate it. As for as Dudley is concerned and his charges, too, the Hivcrmcn's long domination over the Cougars is going to end this season. UMSL has beaten the Cougars six straight times. SIU's performance New Year's day against Tennessee was a great leam effort although Hick Kssington and D e n n y Thronoburg each poured in 27 points. The left- h a n d e d Throneburg, a sophomore, continued his sensational pace at the free- throw line as he converted seven out of seven chances lo raise his season's average lo .005. He's now made 57 out of lilt chances in 10 games. Ninth in the nation in college division players, lie should move up dost; to the leadership. Tlironebiirg also continues to lead the Cougars in overall scoring wilh a 20.110 per game average. Kssmglon, Denny's running male at guard, is hitting at a 17-poinl clip.

The un- b e a t e n Cornhuskors are college football's top-ranked team—and mythical national champion— for the HI70 season. Nebraska garnered a whopping 39 first-place voles in Ihe final Associated Press poll of a nationwide panel of sports writers and sportscasters and easily outdistanced runnrr-up Notre Dame with eight firsts. "It's probably Ihe greatest thing ever to happen lo University of Nebraska athletics," said Bob Devaney, the Cornhusker coach and owner of the best record in major college coaching ranks. "You could say the same thing goes for me as a coach." Nebraska piled up 94fi points with a first-place vote worth 2(1, a second 18, and so OIL Notre Dame had 814. Nebraska conquered Louisiana Stale 17-12 in the Orange Bowl. Notre Dame upset defending national champion Texas 24-11 in the Cotton Bowl. Texas finished Ihe regular season in the No. 1 spot but the Cotton Bowl loss by the Loiighorns dropped them to third in the final rankings. Tennessee, the Sugar Bowl champion, ranks fourth, followed by Ohio State, Arizona Stale', LSU, Stanford, Michigan, Auburn, Arkansas, Toledo, Georgia Tech, Dartmouth, Southern California, Air Force, Tulane, Penn State and Houston with Oklahoma and Mississippi tied for 2()lh. "11. is the ultimate of all college football players to win their league championship, then the national championship is just sonic sort of dream." Devaney said. This is Ihe first national title for Devaney. who has won five Big Wight conference crowns and tied for a fifth championship. He coached five years at Wyoming before taking the reins at Nebraska nine years ago. The upsets of Texas and Ohio State in the New Year's Day howls paved the way for Ihe Coruhuskers to vault to the top. Nebraska was third at the end of the regular campaign and it.'s Orange Bowl victory left the team with an 11-0-1 record. Only blemish on the 11)09 Nebraska season in a 21-21 d e a d 1 o c k wilh Southern California, which administered second-place Norte Dame, 10-1, its only loss, :1H- 2S. The fighting Irish were No. (i at season's end. Stan f o r(i and Heisman Trophy winner .lirn Plunked smashed Ohio Stale in the Hose Bowl, handing the Buckeyes, !)-!, their first loss of the year and dropping them from second to fifth. Texas, which got. three first-place votes, had its 3(1- game victory skein shattered by Noire Dame, and finished 10-1. Tennessee, 11-1, occupies (he same position it hold before the postseason clashes. Ari/ona State, Toledo and Dartmouth are the only unbeaten, untied teams in The Top Twenty. Arizona Slate, 11-0 and Poach Bowl champion, got two first-place votes and finished sixth. Toledo, 12-0, the Tangerine Bowl winner, ranks 12th and Dartmouth, 9-0, the Ivy League champion, is 14th. Toledo's 23-game winning streak qualifies as the current longest with Texas' string bovken at 30. Of Ihc teams in the Top Twenty, only Michigan, No. 0: Arkansas, No. 11; Dartmouth ; Southern California, No. 15: Penn Slate, No. 18; and Houston, No. 19, did not. play in bowl games. Michigan and I^ a r t m o u t h were prohibited from postseason games by their respective conferences, Big Ten and Ivy.

BALTIMOHE (UPI) George Blanda is going to the Super Bowl. Alone. 'Phe rest of his leam didn't quite make it. Technically, neither did Oakland's 43-year-old back-up quarterback b e c a use the Baltimore Colls beat Ihe Haiders, 27 r 17, here Sunday. Thai should've knocked Blanda out of Ihe box for Ihe Super Bowl. It didn't though. He already had promised himself he would go. He also promised, or half- promised anyway, he'd retire from football if Oakland won Ihe Super Bowl game but that's all academic now because the Haiders aren't, even going to be in it. ''He'll be back next season," said one of his teammates after the licking by the Colts. "He'll be back unless he gels a head coaching job somewhere." That, sounds like the right dope. Before they let Ihe press in Sunday, while the door of Oakland's dressing room was still closed, somebody mentioned the Super Bowl game two weeks off and Blanda muttered: "One of these days we're gonna win that S.O.I!." That's not exactly the comment of someone about to retire. 'Phe Haiders peeled off their dirl-slained, sweal-soaked uniforms in the saint 1 room w h i c h .served as Ihe Baltimore Orioles' dressing quarters when they won baseball world champion ship less than !)0 days ago. Only there was no chain pagm* flowing in Ihe room S unday. And instead of Karl VV e a v e r , Ihe Baltimore manager, cxpahmng how good he felt aboul beating Cincinnati, here was (ioorgo Blanda sitting with only a towel across Ins midriff answering questions put lo him by a West ('oast radio man. ' "I don'l like to ask this question, but I know a lot of people are wondering about it," said the radio man "What about you corning back next year'.'" (ieorj'.e Blanda hesitated a second and scratched his back. "High! now I can't say." he said. "I don't know. I've enjoyed my lour years here and I never really play for money ilself, but I don't know right al this moment I'm gonna have lo think about, il." ' 'Plie radio man said he'd have to lake a break foist al ion identification and that afforded one of Hie wailing newsmen an opportunity to get. a word in sleclgewise. "Did you get tired out I h e r e? " Ihe newsman inquired. "Tired?" Blanda snapped, flicking Ihe ash off his c i g a r e I I e . "Why does everybody ask me if I get tired? Ask Ihe young guys that, will you? I never get tired." Then in an aside he mumbled: "Hell, that last pass was 70 yards and he asked me if I gel lirai." 'Phe radio man told Blanda I hey were back on the air again and pretty soon the interview was ended. Blanda scooped up the towel and walked about Ifi foe! to his locker where he began pulling on his street clothes. "You played well," a guy said to him. "Your statistics- were belter than Unilas'." "Statistics don't mean a Ihing,' ' Blanda said. "We lost to a better football team and Unilas is Ihe best there is." The next question was a beauly. II was put lo Blanda by someone who hadn't heard him doing the radio interview. "Are you more tired than usual now?" was !lic question. Bland looked as if he'd have a fit. I hat's a silly he barked. "If I was tired I'd have quil ten years ago." was pretty obvious Blanda didn't want to be asked again if he was tired. It's also prelly obvious By ASSOCIATED PRESS UCLA is still looking for a new football coach lo replace departed 'Pommy Prothro but two other college jobs have been filled. Harvard and Darlhmouth announced Monday the appointment of new head coaches, two days after UCLA, lost Prothvo to the pro Los Angeles Hams. Harvard picked Joe ftestie, who has coached ' Ihe Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League for ihc last three years. Hestic replaces John Yovic- sin, who retired for health reasons at the end of last season and remains al the school as director of physical training and recreation. Dartmouth came up with Jack Croulhamen, who has b e c n defensive backfield coach under Bob Blackman for the last five years.
