19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
Edited by Gay Flood
January 24, 1977
OKLAHOMA VS. THE PRESS (CONT.)Sir:Concerning the article on Oklahoma (Fans to Press: Drop Dead, Dec. 13), your reporter, Frank Deford, changed the meaning of a quote he attributed to me. I said, "We're a young state, striving for excellence, and football has been one area in which we have achieved excellence"—not "the one place where we have achieved excellence."

WORLD CUP TRY
Sir:
Paul Gardner's portrayal of a young U.S. team's last chance at the 1978 World Cup (End of a Dream in Haiti, Jan. 3) altered my view of soccer a bit. For the first time I was right in there pulling for soccer players I felt were "my team." And although in the end I was disappointed in our loss, I am proud of our effort and hopeful of future victories.
