Your article on Bobby Hull (The Handsome Hero of the Hawks, Nov. 14) fails even to mention a contemporary great who is just hitting his full stride. Frank Mahovlich of the Maple Leafs grabbed the Calder Trophy from Hull with a 20-goal year when they were both rookies; he is now the second-highest goal-scorer in the NHL.

The article should have been called The Team of One Man, and it should have been about the Detroit Red Wings and the greatest player of all time, Gordie Howe.
After those high-flying, green-shirted Eagles swamped the Steelers 34-7 and rolled up 487 yards in the bargain, we Philadelphia fans thought we would get the nod at last. Instead it was the Colts and the Giants (Life in the Old Boys Yet, Nov. 14). Who's leading this league anyway?

?For information on the high-flying Eagles, turn back to page 16.—ED.
There are other teams in the NFL besides the Giants and the Colts. It's a shock, isn't it?
Why don't you wake up! Green Bay has an excellent team and will go on to further heights.

I've been reading SPORTS ILLUSTRATED for five years and never have I read a more inaccurate account of a great football game (Fever in Minneapolis, Nov. 14).
Not taking anything away from a fine Minnesota line, I would hardly go so far as to say Iowa was "whipped to a stubble."
I believe you left out the part about Minnesota receiving only three first downs in the opening half.
You can rant and rave all you want about the tremendous, wide-open offenses of Iowa, New Mexico State and Ohio State, but the best offense is still a good defense, and that's Minnesota's Golden Gophers, the No. 1 team in the nation.
