Joel Bussert, director of player personnel for the NFL, said shortly before his office closed that Bosworth had not submitted the required written statement saying he wished to be included in the regular draft. “We don’t have anything, and it has to be in writing,” Bussert said. “A phone call would not be sufficient.” Had he heard from Bosworth at all? “No,” Bussert said. Earlier Monday, Bosworth said he had not made up his mind. Ef forts to reach him in Norman, Okla. and at his parents’ home in Irving, later in the day were un successful. Bosworth may now choose to enter a supplemental draft to be held later this year, or he can re turn to Oklahoma where he has one year of eligibility remaining. If the two-time All-America re turns to school, however, it likely won’t be to play football. Okla homa Coach Barry Switzer has said Bosworth will not he back, and the linebacker has not taken part in spring drills. Bosworth, 6-feet-2 and 240 pounds, was expected to be one of the top five players drafted. His reluctance to enter the draft centered mainly on his wish not to play for the Indianapolis Colts or Buffalo Bills, who have the sec ond and third picks. UT will contest some of NCAA’s allegations AUSTIN (AP) — The University of Texas plans to contest less than half of the 62 allegations the NCAA made against the school’s football program, a school lawyer said. The final report to the National Collegiate Athletic Association will include denials of allegations made concerning excessive entertainment money for student athletes during recruits’ visits, attorney Knox Nun- nally told the Austin American- Statesman. Nunnally said the report, which is about 70 pages, was being sent by special delivery to the NCAA Mon day. The report is broken down into four areas. The school classified the allegations as those it considers sub stantially correct, those considered correct but with mitigating circum stances, those involving conflicting evidence and those UT denies. “A lot of those on the entertain ment expenses are denied,” Nun- nally said, citing six charges that UT made at least 10 payments to UT athletes ranging up to $80 more than the $20 per diem. “There is also conflicting evidence on the legal assistance given by (Aus- K.C.’s Jackson starts season on right foot KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Bo Jackson’s double off the wall was more impressive to Dave Winfield than the home run he hit into a strong wind. “That ball was PAST him,” the New York Yankees right-fielder told teammate Rickey Hender son. “That ball was already past him in the strike zone. It should have been a swing and a miss, or a foul ball.” “You mean the shot he hit over your head?” Henderson asked with a grin. Just 17 months ago, Vincent Edward “Bo” Jackson was cap ping a brilliant college football ca reer in which he rushed for more than 4,000 yards and won the Heisman Trophy. In baseball, which only close friends knew was his favorite sport, he had only about 200 at-bats in college games. After spurning millions of dol lars from the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he holds or shares the Royals’ team lead in runs, hits, total bases and RBI. Includ ing 25 games he played in Kansas City last September, the muscular 225-pounder has hit the longest home run in Royals Stadium his tory and legged out eight infield singles. “I’m enjoying myself. I’m hav ing the time of my life,” he said. “And the more I play, the better I’ll get. I feel like I’m 100 percent better than I was last September.” The Royals shocked a lot of baseball purists by deciding to start the unpolished tailback- turned-outfielder in left field this season. But after three games against the White Sox and three against the Yankees, he’s hitting .417 with an on-base percentage of .714. He punished the Yankees “I’m enjoying myself. I’m having the time of my life. And the more I play, the better I’ll get. I feel like I’m 100 percent better than I was last September. ” — Bo Jackson to the tune of 8-for-12 with a home run, fi\e RBI and an oppo site-field double that Winfield feels should never have hap pened. Jackson did strike out seven times in the first six games. He’s also been guilty of a couple of judgment errors in the outfield. But the good has far outweighed the bad. “I said this spring that it was re markable the progress he had made from last year to this year,” said John Schuerholz, Royals general manager. “But it is even more remarkable the progress he’s made this first week.” MSC POLITICAL FORUM Everyone is Welcome! Political Forum General Committee Meeting Wed. April 15th 7 pm 301 Rudder Committee Awards will be Presented The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who pick first, will take Miami quarterback Vinny 1 estaverde. 1 he Heisman Trophy winner has already signed a contract with the Buccaneers. Bosworth has said he prefers to play on a grass field instead ol ar tificial turl, and that he wants to Play ' v ith a winnei or in a high- profile city such as New York <u Los Angeles. He was interested in plaving with the Philadelphia Eagles and their coach. Buddy Rvan.

Mitigating circumstances were discovered on some of the allega tions involving 15 loans to athletes totaling $670, Nunnally said. Nunnally and UT officials will meet with the NCAA Infractions Committee fora preliminary confer ence before the schools official hearing at Hilton Head, S.C., April 24-26. The NCAA sent a letter to U I ol- ficials in March alleging rides viola tions in 19 categories in the Long horns’ football program from 1980 through 1986. The allegations included loam and gil ts of small amounts of cash to athletes, the loan of automobiles, and entertainment cash in excess of that allowed by NC \A rid s lor ath letes who host rect tuts during visits to the campus, Nunnally said in March.
