LACKS DEPTH:
S need marks defensive line

By DICK ZUCKERMAN
The exciting windup to the
Arizona State-Texas of El Paso
match slast fall just may have
been a preview to this season's
Western Athletic Conference foot-
ball title chase.
The Sun Devils won that one,
33-32, on a 'touchdown off a brok-
en pass play in the last second
of play.
However, Wyoming, unbeaten in
three years at home and tasting
defeat only twice, in their last 22,
games, has plenty going for them
and should also be figured in on
the championship fight. They will
be hardpressed to repeat their
10-0 regular season finish of a
year ago, but it could be done.
As in the Ipast two seasons,
Coach Lloyd Eaton lacks an ex-
perienced quarterback. He must
also come up with a kicker this
year. No longer can he depend on
the 40-yard field goals and punts
of Jerry Depoyster, whose toe de-
feated three teams last year ex-
pected to play key roles in 1968:
Texas-El Paso 21-19, Colorado
State 13-10, and Arizona State,
15-13.
Eaton will have the experience
of 28 returning lettermen. Cow-
poke co-captains are two All-WAC
choices, split end Gene Huey and
linebacker Jim House.

most improved teams in tpe
league," remarked CoachMudra.
If Arizona is to pull any sur-
prises it will be up to quarterback
Owen Lee, a 6-3, 196 pound senior,
to get the Wildcats pro-style T-
offense moving. Singled out as top,
Arizona players were tackle Tom
Nelson and linebackei Gary Klahr.
Brigham Young lost four league
games in 1967. But the teams they
lost to had exceptional seasons-
Wyoming went undefeated, UTEP,
-Utah State, and Arizona State lost
two apiece. Yet Tom Hudspeth's
crew, which wound up 6-4, pulled
one of the biggest upsets of the
year, a 31-1.3 shocker over Oregon
State. BYU's average of 396.2
total yards per game ranked sixth
nationally in '67. Counterbalanc-
ing, that, the Cougars were 12th
in rushing defense, allowing op-
ponents a stingy 87.4 yards per
game-
Brigham Young lacks depth in
the interior lines. The Cougars
have four offensive backfield

starters from last year and a top-
flight pass receiver in Casey
Boyett. Hudspeth said his Cougars
"have inexperience and lack of
depth in both lines and we need
some more speed in the second-
ary . . ." BYU plans to throw "a
lot."
New Utah Coach Bill Meek, with
34 lettermen, also talks about a
passing game. "We're hoping we
can throw because we're not
strong enoygh to run the ball
down anybody's t hr o a t. Our
strength is our defensive unit.
The front four should compete
with anybody in the league."
Utah will have to rely on fast--
developing sophs and junior col-
lege transfers, but the part the
Redskins play in the WAC race
will depend largely on who takes
over for quarterback Jack Gehrke
and halfback Charles Smith.
Meek said there is a complete
new unit of offense and "we don't
look at all good at quarterback
and don't even know who he will
be." He said the best Ute players
are defensive ends Gary Kerl and
Norm McBride, and fullback
Steve Molnar.
Also in his first coaching sea-
son, New Mexico's Rudy Feldman
hopes to rebuild the Lobos after,
three straight losing seasons. A

Coach Dennis Fitzgerald, men-j
tor of the defensive line, calls it
"a pleasant blend of experience
and potential." Experience equals
three returnee lettermen. Poten-
tial includes a host of sophomores
and a smattering of juniors.
Reflecting this analysis, t h e
probable starters for the interior

defensive line against California
will be senior lettermen Tom Goss
and Jerry Miklos, and sophomore
Dan Parks. "All three are ahead
of last year's comparative point."
Fitzgerald notes. "They have more
quickness."
Newcomer Parks was a stand-
out in Spring practice. A fullback
in high school, he was moved to
tackle last spring. "Because of his
good athletic ability, he adjusted
to the right tackle position with-
out difficulty," says Fitzgerald.
"He has great size - 6'5", 240
pounds.
At the other tackle spot, Goss
brings the experience that Parks
lacks. "Experience and quick-
ness have made him much im-

Boilermakers top AP poll;
South shows grid strength

By The Associated Press
Houston and Georgia cracked'
into the rankings as a weekend
of only limited warfare produced
a thorough shakeup in The As-
sociated Press' major college foot-
ball pool.
The top three-Purdue, South-
ern California and Notre Dame-
were about the only teams to
escape the madcap shuffle from
the preseason rankings.
Purdue attracted 14 of the 30
first-place votes and 584 points,
while Southern Cal had eight and
536 and Notre Dame two and 488.
Houston, unmentioned in the
preseason poll, leaped all the way
to 11th after humiliating Tulane
54-7, and Georgia took over the
No. 18 spot after a 17-17 with
Tennessee/ that dropped the Vols
from ninth to 12th.
Nebraska, only other ranked
team in action over the weekend,
remained 14th after a 13-10 last-
minute victory over Wyoming.
Texas moved up a spot to
fourth, trading places with Okla-
homa, while FlQrida climbed a
notch to sixth and Alabama mov-
ed from tenth to seventh.

State fell two spots to tenth to
round out the top 10.
Texas A&M slipped from 12th
to 13th, Indiana from 13th to
15th, Minnesota from 15th into a
tie with UCLA for 16th, Miami
jumped from 20th to 19th and
Louisiana State, dropped f r o m
18th to 20th.
Arizona State, 17th in the pre-
sealson poll, and Syracuse, 19th,
vanished from the ratings al-
though neither has played a game.
The top 20 undoubtedly w ill
undergo another shakeup next
week, since three games this

Gri dde Pickings
Grid picks is what The Daily has for its football fans every fall.
And this fall, much to the disappointment of The Daily staff, we have
lost a writer, but gained another fan. Our esteemed Associate Sports
Editor of last year has hung up his old typing gloves, and put away
the helmet that protected him from the flying bricks that frequently
came crashing thru the windows near the old sports desk. He has
taken a job with the Athletic Dept. writing sports releases.
Now he is a fan, not a staffer. So for you Grayle Howlett, we
'offer this grid picks. And what pickins there are.
Just feast your eyes on the list of twenty terrific games; leading
off with California at Michigan, and climaxing with Millsaps at
Sewanee.
Some of these grid iron battles will be difficult to psych out, but
there is just reward for anyone who labors successfully in prognos-
ticative' football fields.
So for you Grayle Howlett, and all you would-be Grayle Howletts,
The Michigan Daily is offering these prizes: One large pizza pie
from Cottage Inn (your choice of trimmings) complete with custom
mnade box.
And for any girl that cones even close to winning, The Daily
has arranged a special evening'"op the town" for you with either of
