DeGroot gained prbminence in the early iflio's in football at Stanford University, where he was Phi Beta Kappa, played center and captained the team.

UNISEX, UNISEASON JIM MURRAY L OS ANGELES, CALIF. - Remember when, if you saw a guy in a raccoon coat and a flask, you knew he was .going to a football game? If you saw him in 1 sleeve garters, straw hat and a beer, you knew he was going to a baseball game? Remember when, if you saw a girl and guy walking through the snow to a gyhinasium and she had a corsage and gold shoes on, you knew they were going to a basketball game and the dance afterward? Well, you can no longer tell sports seasons by the haberdashery. Seasons don't overlap anymore, they coincide. Three more domed stadiums and we can have 300-game baseball seasons (per team) and 100-game football seasons. Basketball can even play matinees. Season tickets can cost you $20,000. -They-can-artfully-rework-the- playoffs - {which -are-not included in your season tickets) so they can cost even more. In addition to unisex, we will now have uniseason. Knowing sports entrepreneurs, I can see them going any day -no'w-to-the government to see if there's some way we can stretch the calendar to 13 months. fTlHE YAWNING maw of television will go from doubleheaders JLr to~triplehcaders to round-the-clock football. There are already plans for a second golf tour, which, presumably, will one day challenge the older existing golf tour, defeat it in a playoff, merge, then establish another golf tour. To be.played at 6 a.m. They already have plans to stretch out the Super Bowl to 2-out-of-3. So, why not 6-out-of-ll? They have figured out how • to make the World Series three Series. The snorts universe is expanding at a rate greater than anyone's ability to cope with it. One constant is beginning to emerge of interest to the bettor: With stretched-out schedules, more and longer trips to new and distant franchises, increased hours of tension, a line is easy to establish. When it gets down to the end, bet on youth. In basketball, a BiirHussell had to save himself: over the season to be able to eke out his last championship. Then he quit. In baseball, a fat old gaffer could coast through the old, -leisurely 154lgamp. riaytimp spason and be fresh at Series time. N OW, ONLY strong young arms can survive the season, a pressure-packed, 3-out-of-5 playoff and come into a World Series with their concentration and fas Wall intact. In" football, only the young vigorously can bounce back quickly enough after an exhibition-regular-and-post>sea"son set of concussions, nosebleeds and knee-locks, and be healed enough to win the Super Bowl. Experience only counts when you're not too tired — or too hurt — to use it. All I know is, by 1984, the championship team in any given sport will average 14 "years of age. And, if you'll hand me my pith helmet, shorts, and mosquito-repellent, I must be off now for the opening of the football season. © Th» Los Angeles Times - ' OUTDOOR TIPS ABE CAUGHT WITHOUT BOB0iRS,T!?Y (RUBBER OR .. -RUN THE HOOK TWIWWSH THE SPONSEAHP SLIDE IT UP THE LEADER...
