be defense where five key per-
formers have departed. Coach;
Muray Warmath's hopes will rest
on the arm of Phil Hagen, who
completed nearly fifty per cent of{
his pases last season, and on the
running of Barry Mayer and Jim,
Carter, both of whom had fine
seasons last year.
Optimism is prevalent, for a
change, at Wisconsin, Michigan's,
next opponent. Despite the fact
that Wisconsin has not scored a
victory for two years, Badger
coach John Coatta said in May,
"We've had an excellent spring. I
think we've got some football
players."
Illinois, another of the weak
links in the Big Ten, was hit hard
by graduation this season, but
Coach Jim Valek will greet a fine
sophomore group which could give
the Illini a representative team.
Iowa is on the Michigan sched-
ule for the first time since 1964,
Michigan's last Rose Bowl sea-
son. Last season the Hawkeyes
featured a record breaking of-
fense, but the team will have to

ers

lak, last year's star tailback if
Iowa is to continue to move ahead
toward success. Another major
difficulty was created when six-
teen black athletes left the squad
during spring practice.
The Maize and Blue's final
hurdle of the regular season is
defending Big Ten and national
champion Ohio State. C o a c h
Woody Hayes' squad may be
stronger than last year. T h e
Buckeyes' only major losses were
All-American tackles Dave Foley
and Rufus Mayes, and Hayes ap-
pears to have capable replace-
ments. Back again are All-Ameri-
can candidates quarterback Rex
Kern,. fullback Jim Otis, rover-
back John Tatum, and halfback
Larry Zelina. As Hayes says, "It's
obvious that we have more than
depth"
Perhaps the only things stand-
ig in the way of repeat of a na-
tional title are complacency, lack
of incentive (no Rose Bowl trip),
and just maybe a revenge minded
Michigan football squad.

By BILL CUSUMANO
Associate Sports Editor
Football has become the gla-
mour game of collegiate athletics,
but this year it may have to sur-
vive without its usual quota of ex-
ceptional stars. O. J. Simpson, Le-
roy Keyes and countless others
have departed for the professional,
ranks and no likely replacements!
are in sight. Instead, the colleges
will be relying on several power-
house teams to maintain its image'
in the public eye.
The club that everyone is look-
ing toward with fear is-Ohio State.
The Buckeyes of Woody Hayes re-1
turn almost intact from last year
when t h e y rolled through ten,
straight opponents while winning
the Rose Bowl and national chain-
pionship.
The only rebuilding of any im-
portance that Hayes has to do is
at the tackles. Dave Foley and1
Rufus Mayes now do their head-
breaking for the New York Jets'
and Chicago Bears, respectively,1
and will be sorely missed.
STILL, the Buckeyes return all!
of the backs who went through
the holes that Foley and Mayes
opened so Hayes really can't be
blamed for smiling. a-
Rex Kern, Jim Otis and the oth-
er Ohio State runners should rack
up a lot of points and a superb
defense led by John Tatum will
make all challengers earn a n yC
points that are given up. The only
thing that really seems to standI
between the Bucks and another
undefeated season is the fact that
they can't return to the Rose Bowl
and might not have enough incen-
tive to go against upset-minded
opponents every week.
Of course, Ohio State is not the:
only school to return a top notch
team and the Buckeyes certainly
do not have a lock on the national
title. The southwest has t h r e e
teams that could give the Bucks a!
tussle on any Saturday and two
of t h e m. Texas and Arkansas,.
should give each other a titanic
battle on December 6.
THE THIRD TOP team down
in cow country is Houston. Thea
Cougars are highly regarded by
many and have even been picked
number one by Playboy. The name1
of the game in Houston is offense
and nobody does It better, T h e
Cougars have led the country in1
total offense for three consecutive
years and last y e a r set a new
NCAA record. While rolling up the
yardage, Houston also found time
to score 425 points, 100 of which;
came against Tulsa in one game.
The Houston attack is based on
coach Bill Yeoman's multiple of-
fense. The number of options that
a quarterback has when he starts1
to roll out are seemingly endless
and the result is usually a con-

fused defense. The only trouble
is that the many options some-
times also confuse Houston's own
backs and many fumbles occur.
However, with seasoned veter-
ans like quarterback Ken Bailey,
halfback Carlos Bell and receiver
Elmo Wright the Cougars should
score enough around the fumbles
to blast most teams into submis-
sion. And just in case the offense
does sputter, the overlooked de-
fense was tenth in the nation last
year and should be just as tough.
HOUSTON and Texas struggled
to a 20-20 tie last season in one of
the year's great games and it's a
shame that there won't be a re-
match since Texas is loaded once
again. The Longhorns return three
quarters of the backfield t h ati
rushed for over 3,000 yards from,
Darrell Royal's "wishbone - T,"
with only halfback Chris Gilbert
to be replaced.
The bulls returning to the Tex-
as offense are led by James Street,
the quarterback, and ace fullback
Steve Worster. And when Street
doesn't want to hand-off to one
of his backs, he can always use
his baseball pitcher's arm to
throw to speedy Cotton Speyrer.
Supiuemacy in the southwest will
be established, though, when the
Longhorns crash with the Razor-
backs of Arkansas, Only a loss to
Texas kept Arkansas from win-
ning the SWC race last year andj
the Porkers would like to atone
for that mistake.
BILL MONTGOMERY was a
sophomore find for coach Frank
Broyles at quarterback last year
and he should be even better with
a year's experience. Making Mont-
gomery even more effective will
be the presence of Chuck Dicus,
an All-America candidate at end
who was the Most Valuable Player
in this year's Sugar Bowl game.
Just as the Southwest Confer-
ence always turns out fine teams,
so does the Southeastern Confer-
ence. This season promises to be
no exception with Georgia a n d
Tennessee leading the way and
such perennial powers as Alabama,
LSU and Mississippi providing
strong threats.
Vince Dooley has made the
Bulldogs a national power since
his arrival at Georgia and this
year's squad is shaping up as one
of his best. What makes this edi-
tion of the Bulldogs so potentially
good is the presence of Mike Ca-
van, probably the best quarter-
back Dooley has ever had.
Georgia usually relies upon de-
fense to win games but the great
abilities of Cavan will give the
defensive platoon more of a cush-
ion to work with. Whatever points
Cavan does put on the board for
t h e Bulldogs should be enough
since the defenders are almost the
same crew that operated so effec-
tII

tively last year. Only All-Ameri- I
cans Bill Stanfill and Jake Scott
are missing b u t their positions
should be adequately filled.
Another team that lives by its
defense is Tennessee but the Vols
are not worried about it. Their
defenders, led by linebacker Steve
Kiner, rarely g i v e up points in
double figures. Kiner in particular
seems ready to follow in the foot-
steps of former Tennessee greats;
such as Frank Emanual.I
Doug Dickey's offense is ques-;
tionable, though, since he has re-
placed his whole backfield. How-
ever, spring practice performances
indicate that the Vols will score,
just enough.
ONE MIGHT suspect that the
SEC teamsd Iide themselves on
defense and it is tr'ue. Most of
their great powers rarely have a1
big star, an exception being Joe
Namath at Alabama. Instead, they
are hard-hitting and just plain
tough units.
The SEC does not have a mo-
nopoly on tough defenses, though.;
The Big Eight usually turns out
several hard-nosed teams and its'
top candidates for national rank-
ing this season are Missouri and1
Oklahoma. What differentiates]
the Tigemrs and Sooner's from SEC;
teams is that they are bigger arEd
have more offense.;
Missouri is the pre-season fav-
orite to take the Big Eight after
its stunning slaughter of Alabama+
in the Gator Bowl. Terry McMil-
lan has developed into a m o r e+
than dependable quarterback and
he has veteran backs behind him,

led by tailback Jon Staggers. The
Tiger defense has most of the roen
returning who stopped Alabama
with the o n 1 y exception being
Roger Wehrli, All-American saf-,
ety.
Oklahoma will give Missouri its
chief challenge as the Sooners al-
so return a veteran team. The key
for Oklahoma is Steve Owens, a
Heisman Trophy possibility and
maybe the best halfback in the
land. Only quarterback problems
and defense could hold back the
Sooners.
Out on the west coast the big
noise is still USC, even without O.
J. Simpson. Soph quarterback
Jimmy Jones is supposed to be
the next great one and ends Sam
Dickerson and B o b Chandler
should help him to live up to his
press notices. John McKay also
has most of his Rose Bowl defense
on hand so New Year's should find
his in Pasadena once again.
SOUTHERN CAL'S old rival,
Notre Dame, also should be strong
again despite the loss of Terry
Hanratty and Jim Seymour. Joe
Theismann can do the job at
quarterback and t h e defense is
big and strong. The main problem
is finding offensive help for Theis-
mann.
So the national picture is once
again filled with familiar names.
The old powers will once again
fight over the rankings and by the
end of the season may even pro-
duce a n e w Simpson or Keyes.
Otherwise it might just be a sea-
son filled with great teams made
up of good players,
