Something mast be done.
First, The Recruiting System ...
First. I think the hioh nrxniu i . ,. . .

esFSj'' Panting
ITT -ww-uuig mgn scnooi students before they have
Professional baseball teams must do with prep stars.
tostuung a maximum scholarship standard (tuition, books,
ttMteetera) that each school could offer its prospective athletes!
This WWW still give each institution a degree of self-determination-dow
Dig to make its athletic program wi&ln the lirmtatione but it
wouH also muzzle the big, ambitious college and greatly curtail the
vicious We can give more than ttiey" recruiting cycle.
This would still allow for an efficient recruiting program during
the summer months but, most important, it would prohibit dangling
active lure before players still in high school and would stand
ardize to scholarship offer-thus, putting the premium on the merits
of the individual institution rather than the size or attractiveness of
the scout's offer.
Both these stiuplations, however, would have to be strictly en
forced nationally by the NCAA, with powers delegated to each indi
vidual conference. The Big Seven, then under the auspices of the
NCAA, would suspend or reprimand any of ks member schools if it
overstepped the recruiting line. '
The Scholarship Program...
Secondly, after the extent of the scholarship has been clearly
delineated ,a central faculty committee should be set up to screen all
candidates on the basis of athletic ability, need, academic records
and personal conduct reports.
A. contract should be drawn up stating the exact terms of the
scholarship agreement and signed by the student and his parents.
The scholarship list should be published, just like any other Univer
sity scholarships, and information about qualification should be listed
m the college bulletin.
The athletic director, the head coach and his assistants would, of
course, make the recommendations to the committee. In most cases,
the committee would go along with the recommendations.
However, under this system, alumni influence is passed to a group
lhat it cannot sway to any appreciable extent, the applicants will be
judged as students as well as athletes and pressure will be removed
from the coaching staff to grant this or that boy a scholarship.
Most important, it would be a watchful guardian of institutional
integrity, dispensing with much of the old "cloak and dagger" secrecy
of many college athletic scholarship programs.
Athletics, Academic Integration . . .
Thirdly, the coach should be thoroughly integrated into the faculty
so that he has the status, occupational safety, and salary equal to
but no more than that of any other faculty member.
The important consideration here is the coach's salary, which
in many institutions exceeds that of the president. The average big
tone coach earns between $10,000 and $15,000 per year while the
average full professor, with DerhaDs 20 vears of tMchino mvrimro
10 books to bis name and a world-wide reputation, may get $7,000, if
uc a iucy .
I dont think it's too much to ask that a football coach live on a
full professor's salary, with perhaps a special traveling expense
account. If the salaries of big-time coaches could be scaled with those
of other faculty members, coaches would enjoy much more faculty
and administration acceptance and job security.
But here again; this is difficult to implement Individually. How
can you get a good coach if he can get twice the money somewhere
else? This is another important consideration for the NCAA, perhaps
in conjunction with the American Association of University Professors.
Position Of Administration ...
Finally, I think the administration of each school should stand
squarely behind its athletic department, and particularly its coaches
and their contracts. It is responsible for the entire college program of
which intercollegiate sports is one part.
The only reasons why a college administration cannot stand be
hind its athletic department is if it's ashamed of the department's
unethical practices or if it is too weak or politically conscious to back
an unpopular coach or athletic policy.
, In the former case the college officials have the authority, if not
the immediate responsibility, of cleaning up the department. In the
latter situation the school authorities must keep constantly in mind
mat whenever or wherever the public (most likely a few fanatic fans
and powerful alumni) dictates a school's football program, hiring and
firing a coach at will, the entire program becomes a tragic burlesque
of the ideals of American education. ,
The Final Result ...
I think if these points were carried through they -would integrate the
athletic department and the coaches more closely within the aca
demic sphere of the University, relieve administration officials, athletic
directors and coaches of alumni, newspaper and special interest pres
sures and stabilize the vicious recruiting program.
By the way, my "authoritative sources" tell me that Pete Elliott,
former Michigan star and assistant bf coach it Oklahoma, will defi
nitely be cur next grid coach. They tell me, too that negotiations have
been going on for some time, .

Dierks was a good blocker, ex

many times to aid his team in a
