r Newsprint HU athletics: Out with the old By Marcia Davis When Northwestern University Presideni Robert Strotz began looking for a fresh start, Athletic Director John Pont and head football Coach Rick Venturi had to start looking for new jobs. With a little pressure from NU trustees, Strotz equated that new beginning with the end of Pont and Venturi ' s stay at NU. While many believed that the then-month- long racial controversy was the cause of the fir- ings, trustees later said it was Venturi ' s 1-31-1 record and NU ' s new outlook on athletics that ousted the two. DESPITE THE TRUSTEES ' later belittling of the racial conflict earlier that fail. Black Athletes Uniting for the Light put NU at the top of sports pages across the country. The group, which had organized two years ago, was led by the then-tailback and senior Mike Cammon, spokesman for the organiza- tion, which was made up of the majority of black athletes on campus. More than 30 members of the organization presented Pont and Vjce President for Student Affairs Jim. G. Carleton with their grievances the Thursday before Homecoming, creating a fear that they might boycott the game. The complaints came on Oct. 9 and claimed unfair treatment of black playedrs by Venturi and his coaching staff. The group said Venturi had: •made the remark that " All my nigger backs are hurt this week so I ' ll have to patch up my white boys. " •dismissed black players for minor offenses but allowed whites committing the same of- fense to remain on the team. •criticized blacks for showing emotion on the field. •refused talented black seniors the chance to play and placed them on the third-string prac- tice squad. •allowed both black and white injured players to be forced back to play without being fully recovered. •said of the black senior class, " I know I should have gotten rid of them before when I had the chance. " VENTURI AND WHITE athletes denied the charges, claiming the complaints to be ' from disgruntled seniors who had pressured other players into supporting their " lies. " Nonetheless, BAUL was pleased to hear that Strotz had agreed with a list of proposals they had drawn up to help improve the athletic pro- gram. While the president did not agree to follow the proposals exactly, he said versions of them would be included in a pamphlet that the university was working on for the athletic department. ■ ' Rick Venturi 372
