By DALE SIELAFF
The loss of twenty lettermen, a
crop of untried sophomores, a
lengthened ten game schedule,
and a disappointing fourth place
1964 finish add up to headaches
for the Fighting Illini of Illinois
Coach Pete Elliott has set about
rebuilding his team, '63 Big Ten
champs, around 11 letterwinners,
most of whom are in the back-
Headed by All-American full-
back Jim Grabowski, Elliott has
his entire offensive backfield re-
turning. Grabowski led the Big
Ten in rushing last fall with 723
yards for a 5.2 average. At 6-2,
215, the tough senior is being
tabbed for repeat All-America
honors this year.
At quarterback, veteran Fred
Custardo is the man to watch, as
Coach Elliott has turned the team
over to him, with only four sopho-
mores and an inexperienced jun-
ior, Bruce Sullivan, to back him
up. Last season Custardo turned
in a steady performance, ranking
sixth in the conference on a 52
per cent.completion average, good
for 787 yards.
Senior Sam Price, back for his
third year, finds himself battling
for a starting halfback assign-
ment. Ron Acks, the fourth of-
fensive starter has been shifted to
defense, leaving the field open for
sophomores to step into the back-
Top first year candidates are
Cyril Pender and Ron Bess. Bess,
at 6-0, 190, has apparently won
one halfback post, while Pender
!is still battling Price for the nod
at the other. Price Was second
among Illini rushers last fall with
225 yards, for a 3.5 average.
Illinois has been noted for its
tough defensive backfields, and
Elliott, sees this year as no ex-
ception, despitesthe graduation of
two-thirds of last fall's deep trio.
Senior Dick Kee, who stands only
5-9 and weighs 175, is the re-
turnee. Kee played 221 minutes in
'64, and helped the Illini hold
theiraopponentsto a 39 per cent
ILLINOIS COACH Pete Elliott exhorts his team in preparation for the coming season. The Illiil
have an outstanding backfield with All-American fullback Jim Grabowski, and capable Sam Price
at half and Fred Custardo at quarterback. The Illini deficiency, however, is inexperience in the of-
fensive and defensive line which could keep the m in the second division of the conference.

Acks, who will probably be re-
placing All-America George Don-
nelly at safety, Elliott has sopho-
more Phil Knell to team with Kee
on pass defense. Backing up the
starting three are lettermen Al
Waters and Wayne Paulson.
Custardo will be throwing to a
group consisting entirely of sophs.
Last year's regulars Rich Cal-
laghan and Dave Mueller are
graduated, Bob Trumpy' is in-
eligible, and Eddie, Russell has
been lost due to a knee injury.
This leaves only veteran Bo
Batchelder, who will be used ex-
clusively on defense. Starting posts
have been set with John Wright
and Larry Jordan getting the nod.
Don Hansen, a 6-2, 201 senior
linebacker, is ready to try to fill
the shoes of the graduated Dick
Butkus. Hansen has impressive
credentials, including All-America
honorable mention, a second All-
Big Ten team position, and the
post of 1965 co-captain along with
Grabowski. Working with Hansen
will be senior Bill Harper (6-0,
181), who is still working for his
In the interior line, which is
probably Illinois' biggest problem,
only '64 regular Gary Eickman is
With all six lettering guards
gone, Elliott must man the for-
ward wall with sophs or inexper-
ienced upperclassmen. Heading
this list are Ron Guenther (5-9,
198), and Fritz Harms. These two
should be starting on offense, with
sophomore Bill Allen and junior
Tom Smith, at 225 and 193 re-
spectively, set to go on defense.
Tackle is a little more secure,
with "experience concentrated on
the eight side. Veteran Eickman
has the edge on defense, with
236-pound Dale Greco and 265-
pound Willis Fields pushing for
the offensive job. On the deft
side, the field is still unsettled,
with Ray Bateman' (6-5, 270),
Will Radell (5-11, 210), and 235-
pound Dick Stone in the running
With the experienced backfield
and inexperienced line, the Illini,
open the season on September 18
at home against the Qregon State
Beavers, and then play six teams
before meeting the Blue on No-
