19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
Edited by Gay Flood
November 21, 1977
SEMI-TOUGHSir:Very unsportsmanlike conduct, SI. You slighted all the thousands of real athletes throughout the world by opting to feature Kris Kristofferson, Burt Reynolds and Jill Clayburgh—Jill Clayburgh?—on the cover (Nov. 7). How could you? The article Semi-Tough Goes to the Movies was even more unsportsmanlike. A busted play.RICHARD S. QUINTANACochiti, N. Mex.

Sir:
If the Red Raiders go unbeaten this season, they will have done so while playing only four games at home. It's tough to win on the road, no matter what the caliber of the opposition. The selection committees of the postseason bowls should give Colgate serious consideration.

Sir:
Thanks for Michael DelNagro's article on a most deserving Colgate football team. Bowl bid or no, it's nice once in a while to see national recognition accorded a superior team from a small, highly selective college that doesn't give athletic scholarships.

NOT CRUNCHED
Sir:
Nobody, but nobody, crunches Tennessee State (FOOTBALL'S WEEK, NOV. 7). Tennessee Tech, a fine small college team, did indeed crunch East Tennessee State 63-20, but Tennessee State? No way. Coach John Merritt's TSU Tigers are 8-1-1 for the season, having lost only a 31-28 squeaker to Florida A&M and tied Tennessee- Chattanooga, 14-14. With little recognition, this predominantly black school has been one of the premier producers of NFL talent for many years, ranking right alongside the Notre Dames and Ohio States.
