Pete Rozelle? Even the great iguana hunter, Richard Burton, has more credentials.
Excellent job on Rozelle. He well deserves it. Please extend kudos to Writer Ken Rudeen. I wish I had a blowup of the cover for framing.
The south end of Kelso running north would have been more deserving.

I must say the sight of football's Rozelle on your special start-of-the-year cover gave me something of a shock, but Rudeen's masterfully organized arguments convinced me that the NFL commissioner was indeed a worthy choice.

Congratulations on your bowl game picks and astute call of the Giants and Bears game (Dec. 23). Your record is beautiful: three right, six wrong. Next December I suggest you poll the lowliest fan in Jasper Mills, Ohio. He could do better by tossing a coin.
Please have Tex Maule repeat after me: "Everything west of Yankee Stadium isn't Bridgeport. Everything west of Yankee Stadium isn't Bridgeport. Everything...."

You never did print your final season's record for college football predictions. Could it be you were just too ashamed? Judging by your astounding .375 average for the bowl games, I cannot believe it was a case of modesty.
New York City
?Yes, it was. Our pickers crawled out on a limb 203 times last season (handicapping only the toughest games), got 127 right, 68 wrong and tied 8 for an average of .651.—ED.

Regarding Tex Maule's articles on Tittle and the title: nuts!
What a waste of words to prove nothing. I'll bet they taste terrible. Here's 1,000 cheers to George Halas, his world champion Bears and little ole Wrigley Field.
