All this will come out in Saturday's wash.
But consider for a moment the opportunity that has slipped

Because he failed to speculate on the outcome of Saturday's

hopes to the limit.
The only other respectable team

"I find the truth
to lie most often
with the protestors"
By BOB ANDREWS
In this centennial year of Col-
lege Football the race in the
South Eastern Conference shapesI
up to be the tightest in about
Some say that the Georgia Bull-
dogs should once again win the
conference title but Tennessee,
Louisiana State, Alabama, Mis-
sippi, and Auburn will be breath-
ing down their necks.
Georgia's trademark u n d e r
their coach Vince Dooley has been
their defense and this year is no
different. Kerry Teel and R o n
Huggins, both top rated li n e-
backers, should form the core of
the powerful Bulldog defense.
Marked improvement should be
made this year on the offense.
Mike Gavan, rated by many as theI
best quarterback in the confer-
ence, heads a group of four strong
offensive backs which include
Donnie Hampton, Paul Gilbert
(scheduled as last year's No. 1
quarterback until injured), a n d
Jack Montgomery, a sophomore,
who has looked great in prac-
tice. Chuck Whittemore, Dennis
Hughes, and Billy Brice will be
the receivers. Whittemore in h is
sophomore year caught 40 pass-
es for 608 yards. There are those'
in Georgia who say he is the best
Bulldog receiver since Jimmy Orr.
THE VOLUNTEERS of Tennes-
see, under coach Doug Dickey,
have lost only one of their last
14 conference games and once
again are strong contenders.
The offense can be described as
young and speedy. There is an
entirely new offensive backfield.
Bobby Scott, a 195-pound junior
will run the offense which plans
to i-ely more on r-unning than on
favored in Southeast struggle
passing. Scott runs much better
and has a stronger but less ac-
curate arm than Bubba Wyche
who called the plays for the Vols
last year. Bobby Patterson, Don
Carpenter, Lance Pearce and Bob-
by Majors are fighting it out to
decide who will replace Richmond
Flowers at tailback.
THEN AGAIN there is Paul
"Bear" Bryant and his Crimson
Tide from Alabama. Last year the
Tide scored only 177 points, few-
est in a decade, and the Bear
worked the offense in only a way
he could, to see if there could be
some improvement in this dismal
Scott Hunter, only one in a long
tradition of fine quarterbacks
from Alabama, is still the No. 1
man. He's a good passer but has
been ineffective as a runner. Bry-
ant hopes to have more balance
in his offense which means a run-
ning attack to go along w i t h
Hunter's fine passing.
Things won't be so easy for Ala-
bama this 'year, but with "Bear"
Bryant at the helm it's very pos-
sible that the Tide will once again

most powerful defenses, will once

Giaduation cleanedoet a good
supply of backs, but 15 lettermen
will be returning on offense. Mike:
Hillman the quarterback, who
stood out in last year's Peach Bowl
win over Florida State, should
have a great senior year. Eddie
Ray, the fullback, has had some
knee trouble but if his knee holds
tip, there will be no trouble at this is the best man he has ever had at
position, that position.
LAST YEAR, the Rebels of Mis-
sissippi under coach John Vaught
gambled with youth and almost
won with three early victories, but
injuries and inexperience shattered
all their hopes. If their regulars
manage to stay healthy the whole
year. Mississippi has an outside
shot at the conference title. The
team should show much improve-
ment in their defensive unit which
In the last two years, Bill Pace
has done wonders at Vanderbilt.
Now, in his third year, his team
will have more speed, and im-
proved defense and a better quar-
terback. Johnny Miller, won the
quarterback role last year and is
fighting off the challenge of Wat-
son Brown. a talented sophomore.
THE FLORIDA GATORS have
always produced good teams, but a
conference title has eluded them
for the last 35 years. The same
thing should hold true for this
year. The offense is the question-
able area. The quarterback spot,
which hurt the Gators in 1968, has
been filled by Jack Eckdahl, who
has been in.iured the past two sea-
sons, but John Reaves, a super
prep star from Tampa, could Loe
the job away irom E hdahl.
The pirolem uu Mississippi
State is that they usually allow
the o jonent to score more than
their potent offense does. That is
one reason they haven't won a
conference game since 1965. Tom-
my Pharr. was the leading quar-
terback in passing and total of-
fense in the S. .C. last year, but
even his fine ability won't carry
the Bulldogs "pharr" enough.
Once the defense improves, Mis-
sissippi State should become a
JOHNNY RAY, the only n e w
head coach in the SEC, promises
that h i s Wildcats at Kentucky
will take tremendous strides this
year. Ray, who was a defensive
aide to Ara Parseghian at Notre
Dame. made many changes in per-
sonnel, installed the 4-4-3 defense
he used at Notre Dame, and most
importantly, he has generated
morale on a team which hasn't
been in a bowl game since 1952.
Ray insists that to be a winner,
you must always think like one.
