When the pre-season football
polls came out late this summer,
it looked as if Notre Dame would
be national champions for the
second year in a row without even
taking the field.
How could the Fightin' Irish
ever lose a game?
To start out with, they had a
,miracle worker in head Coach Ara
Parseghian who led Notre Dame
to a 9-1 record his first season in
1964 after the Irish finished with
a 2-7 slate the year before.
Notre Dame also had one of
the top ends in the country re-
turning in junior Jim Seymour.
Last season he caught 48 passes
for eight touchdowns in seven
In Terry Hanratty and Coley
O'Brien, the Fightin' Irish fea-
tured two of the top-rated quar-
terbacks in the nation. When
Hanratty got hurt against Michi-
gan State, O'Brien took over and,
led Notre Dame to a 51-0 white-
wash over Rose Bowl bound
And talk about defense, the
Fightin' Irish had their super-
man returning in Kevin Hardy
who anchored down the defense
with his 6'5", 270-pound frame.
Alongside him, Notre Dame fea-
tured a new line that averages
more than 260 pounds per man,
heavier than many pro teams.
Yet the Fightin' Irish won't
go through the 1967 season un-
defeated and unscored upon. Pur-
due broke that golden bubble last
Saturday pasting Notre Dame with
its first defeat in two years, 28-
Then what weaknesses did the
pollsters overlook when they vot-
ed the Fightin' Irish as mostly to
succeed in 1967?
First, Parseghian had to fill the
holes left by the graduation of

Captain and linebacker Jim
Lynch, halfback Nick Eddy, de-
fensive end Alan Page, defensive
tackle Pete Duranko and guard
Tom Regner all received first place
recognition while fullback Larry
Conjar, center George Goeddeke,
tackle Paul Seiler and linebacker
John Horney got partial acclaim.
In all the Fightin' Irish lost 11
starters to graduation. While these
holes haven't been impossible to
fill, the losses have taken their
toll especially on defense where
the Notre Dame first team only
allowed 17 points all last year.'
In the world of the immortal
Parseghian, "the ability of the
number one defensive unit in 10
ball games to surrender only 17
points was a fantastic achieve-
"The offensive team gave up
two touchdowns, one on a fumble
to ,Purdue and a blocked kick by
Navy. The second defensive unit
gave up on touchdown," explains
"The ability for the defensive
team to duplicate this is very un-
That became evident last Sat-
urday when the vaulted Notre
Dame defense collapsed.
Parseghian put much of the
blame for that loss on the pass
rush. "Our front four just wasn't
able to get at the passer. We'
couldn't get near (Mike) Phipps."
And Hardy, who led the defen-
sive unit in Notre Dame's 41-8
victory over California two Sat-
urdays ago, was hurt in the Pur-
due game and will be a doubtful
starter against Iowa this weekend.
The Purdue game was a night-
mare for the Fightin' Irish all
"It's just that Purdue came up
with the key plans on third and
fourth downs while we failed,"
the Irish coach sighed.
"Our running game didn't
amount to a whole lot because
we were playing catch-up foot-
ball and this forced Terry Han-
ratty to set some new passing rec-,
ords. tHe completed 29 out of 63
"Hopefully, we'll have a bet-
ter balanced attack in the future.
"We plan to employ the split
end flanker back type of attack.
It should be very much the same
attack as last year" when Notre
Dame piled up 362 points on its

As a high school quarterback
in a fair to middling league 25
miles northwest of New York City,
Paul Toscano was a hard runner
with little recognized ability as
In fact, Toscano was much bet-_
ter known as his school's basket-
ball scoring star (he set a county
record with 50 points in a game)
against very weak oppositon that
consdered a 6'4" center a veritable
Is college at Wyoming, his foot-
ball coach took advantage of Tos-
cano's known running ability and
turned him into a defensive safe-
Last year, Toscano was goodI
enough to make second team All-
Western Athletic Conferencey
But this year. Coach Lloyd
Eaton of the perennially strong
Cowboys had a problem. Gone
were his top two veteran quarter-
backs from his powerhouse of last
Into the void Eaton inserted.
Toscano because of his "head, at-
tiude, and battle experience." As
,to the passing ability of his new
choice, the best opinion given of
Toscano from anyone was "fair."
Now, after three games of this'
season, Toscano leads the nation
in total offense. After handling
the ball 95 times, Toscano has run
or passed 683 yards.
But the real shocker is that he
leads the nation in touchdown
passes with seven, having run for
only one. He also ranks fourth in
passes completed (right behind
TerrysHanratty) with 39 in 72 at-
tempts. He also ranks second in
passing yardage with 625, mean-
ing he has run for ony 58 yards.
Of Mice and Men
Some teams have all the luck.
The fact is, had Toscano -been
proven to be only a mere mortal,
Wyoming would still be favored
to romp through its schedule un-
defeated and take an outside
chance at the nation's top ten.
The Cowboy's "lesser" lights are:
Gene Huey, 13th in the nation
in pass receiving; Jerry Depoyster,
fourth in the nation in scoring by
a kicker; All-America tailback
candidate Jim Kick; offensivej
tackle Mike LaHood; guard Dave
Rupp; defensive back Dick'
Speights; and Vic Washington,
who was the leading punt returner
in the nation last year and is
number two so far this year.
A couple of years ago the con-
ference would stop right there.
One good team and a bunch of
But now there's Arizona State, j
who has Ed Roseborough-13th inI
passing in the country, 17th in
total offense and 18th in punting.
Max Anderson is fifth in the coun-
try in rushing and 14th in scoring,
while J. D. Hill is seventh in scor-
ing and 14th in pass receiving.
Ken Dyer from Ann Arbor is 12th
in pass receiving.
Arizona State also has Curley+
Culp, NCAA wrestling champion
and supposedly just as good at
football, on the defensive line.+
Brigham Young, second in total
offense, first in passing offense,
third in scoring, and third in
rushing defense will probably go+
somewhere this year.
What a Way to Go
But New Mexico, with the na-
tion's top passer in Terry Stone,;
the number three pass receiver in+
Ace Hendricks, and the third rank-
ed passing offense, is picked for
the conference cellar.
Arizona is also very weak, de-
spite the fact that they beat Ohio
State Saturday. Utah has a passer
in Jack Gehrke, but nothing else.
Independents from the area in-
clude Air Force, and New Mexico
State. New Mexico State will be
fairly good because of its tradi-
tionally great running backs, but
will be held up because of its tra-
ditionalyly porous defense.
As in Tot
Air Force, however, is in trouble.
One example is Dave Mumme
(prosounced Mummy), a 'junior.
He transfered fromt Louisiana to
the big rival of Toscano's school
during his junior year in high
In his 'senior year, he averaged
11.5 yards a carry on the gridiron
as a halfback, was the best passer
on his team and so popularized the
option pass, was a top defensive
player, and set a league scoring
record for a season. .
He also set a New York State
record in the pole vault.
Sought by many schools includ-
ing most of the Ivy League, he
passed up all offers including a
full scholarship from Princeton
granted weeks before the April'15
mailing date in direct violation of
the Ivy League cooperative agree-
ment, so anxious were they to get

Instead, Mumme chose the Air
Force following in the steps of his
father, a military man.

was one of the Falcon's top fresh-
man.,However, Mumme badly in-
jured both legs during his sopho-
more year and was out for the

quite empty for Mumme, since the
second cheating scandal in three
years has wiped out the Air' Force.

Collegiate football's most prized
and distinguished trophy, the
Little Brown Trash Basket, goes
up for grabs Friday, and UAC cap-
tain Don (the fumbler) Tucker is
not very happy about it..
"We might as well not even
bother to show up for the game
with you Daily people," said a dis-
grunted Tucker as he calmly flip-
ped paper wads out of his second
story office in the Union. As pres-
ident of UAC, this has been one of
his most engaging activities.
"We have no offense, we have no
defense and our quarterback,
Tom (the bomb) Lovel, is a study
in futility," he added in one 'of
his more optimistic assessments of
Tucker is probably right.
Quarterback Lovel has yet to
complete a pass, going 0 for 20 in
last week's humiliating Mugger
loss to a University High squad of
freshman girls. In that game he
had six passes picked off and-was
held to -50 yards on the ground.
The whole UAC squad from
coach Bob (popgun arm) Neff
down to offensive blocking back
Jack (potato famine) O'Hara and
Joe (the weasel) Heiser is a con-
glomeration of ineptitude.

I'm sure our boys will do it," said
chief cheerleader Roz Braemen of

"After the game I'm going to
join the Daily," she added.
