By characterizing Michigan, after its loss to Penn State (The Lions Roar to the Fore, Oct. 24), as doomed to "just six more games and a hollow New Year's Day," you trivialize the commitment of thousands who play football with no thought of rankings or bowl games but simply for the love of the game.

First the Jesuits: B.C. (Twice Is Doubly Nice, Oct. 17). Then the Mormons: BYU. Thank God SMU isn't on Notre Dame's schedule this year.

On Oct. 22 both Northwestern and Columbia won on the road. When is the last time these two schools won away football games on the same day?
