Veteran Coach Woody Hayes will

Writing OSU's Epitaph
Thus the real destiny of Ohio
State's offense lies in its running
backs. Woody doesn't have much
depth in the backfield this year,
but he likes what he has.
Two sophomorehalfbacks, Dave
Brungard and Ray Gillian, ap-
pear to have broken into the start-
ing lineup. Joining with returning
lettermen, Rudy Hubbard and
Rudy Smith, they should give the
OSU running attack the speed and
power it lacked last season.
To support the backfield, Woody
has gone to great pains to restock
his offensive line. Players have
shifted positions and even
changed from defense to offense
in an attempt to give the runners
needed blocking.
Where the Action Is
Defensively, the Buckeye lineup
will emphasize youth. As many as
five or six sophomores could break
into the starting unit.
They, along with the return of
six regulars, should give Ohio State

of the past.
For the most part, they're big,
they're fast, and if the sopho-
nores come on as expected, they
should get the job done.
So with the passing attack gone.
it looks like "three yards and a
cloud of dust" will once again be
the battle cry at Columbus.

SAN JOSE, Calif. ()-San Jose
State College's opening football
game has been cancelled because
of threats to "burn down the sta-
dium" in a racial dispute.
The threats came during a emo-
tion-packed week of trying to meet
today's deadline to solve charges
of discrimination against the 'col-
lege's estimated 200 Negro stu-
dents. The total enrollment is
22,500.
President Robert D. Clark em-
phasized the "danger is not from
San Jose College students."
Texas offers to"transfer the
game to ElPaso were turned down.
