Jayhawks Rip Tigers, 23-7

By The Associated Press
COLUMBIA - The Kansas Jay-
hawks soundly peat Missouri's
fabled defenses, smashing the
nation's first-ranked Tigers 23-7
for the Big Eight conference foot-
ball championship yesterday.
Missouri had won its other nine
games this season. A record crowd
of 43,000 witnessed vicious, defen-
sive play by both teams until
Roger Hill's 47-yard field goal
split the crossbars in the third
quarter for the first score. Hard
tackling and fidgety ball handling

MANi t/itin
The Morning After
YOU LOST THE LAST GAME of the season. Your team actually
lost the game, but you feel it personally--as if you alone were
It took a good team to do it. Ohio State is one of the best teams
in the country and your boys topped them in every department-but
not in the scoring column.
It leaves kind of a sour taste in your mouth. The season's over
now and all the bright hopes that you and your coaching staff har-
bored back on that cloudy September first are things of the past.
Some of them materialized. Others, such as an always hoped-for win
over the Buckeyes, didn't.
This morning, with your second season as head co'ach behind
you, you would like to sit back and spin the wheels of "if."
IF Dave Glinka hadn't had those two passes intercepted in the
last quarter yesterday, maybe .... IF that last great drive up at
Wisconsin a few weeks ago had started two minutes earlier, maybe
. . IF you had had a little more depth when that Michigan State
line wore your boys down in that second half at East Lansing, maybe
* . .. IF Michigan hadn't given the ball away to Minnesota seven
times, maybe....
BUT THERE -ISN'T much use in chewing over those games now.
Maybe if you think a little longer things won't look as bad as they
do on this "morning after."
Looking on the credit side of your ledger you find that you gave
Michigan its first winning season in three years and your first as a
head coach.
Take a quick look at the year. Try the Oregon game. Your
Wolverines didn't have any trouble taking a 21-0 win over a team
that was edged out of a Rose Bowl bid by a one-point loss to highly
ranked Washington (the only mar on Oregon's record since the
Michigan game). Didn't have a bad team that day.
Even look at the loss toMichigan State. Dropping a close game
to the heavily favored Spartans wasn't much of a disgrace.
THEN CAME DUKE. Since that easy 31-6 win over the Blue Devils,
you've been able to laugh up your sleeve at the brand of football
played in their part of the country this year. After that rugged day
in Ann Arbor, Duke waltzed through its schedule to a number six
national rating until stubbing its toe against North Carolina yester-
From then on it was a Big Ten schedule all the way and you had
to take a little of the bitter with the sweet.
You bumped a good Northwestern team and then dropped close
games to Minnesota and Wisconsin. You called a couple of the right
plays as you settled your first of your family clashes of the coaching
brothers. After that win over Illinois you drew a breather against
Indiana and went into the Ohio State game as the only Big Ten team
with as much as a two-game winning streak.
So you lost the last one. Maybe it isn't much consolation but
you know that your boys played one of their best games. And even
Woody Hayes agreed afterwards and said that Michigan was "the
hardest hitting defensive team we played all year." You couldn't
have lost much face in Ohio Stadium if someone as blunt as Hayes,
will admit what he did.
Sure, today is Sunday and you lost a footbah game yesterday.
.But Thursday is Thanksgiving and .maybe as you and Mrs. Elliott
and all the little Elliotts gather around that turkey you might stop
to think that this wasn't such a bad year after all.

cost Kansas the ball four times
on fumbles, and Missouri three.
The third Missouri fumble set
up Kansas' first touchdown min-
utes after Hill's field goal. Quarter-
back John Hadl passed 19 yards to
halfback Bert Coan for the touch-
down. John Suder kicked the extra
point, and Kansas led 10-0 after
three quarters.
Kansas struck twice in the
fourth period while the Tigers
sandwiched in their only touch-
down. The Jayhawks moved 69
yards in 13 plays with Coan get-
ting another touchdown on a two-
yard jab over tackle. Suder again
North Carolina 7, Duke 6
Quarterback Ray Farris plunged
over for a touchdown with two
minutes remaining, and Fullback
Bob Elliott kicked the game-
winning point as inspired North
Carolina upset sixth-ranked Duke,
7-6, yesterday.
A crowd of 42,000 saw Duke go
ahead minutes earlier when full-
back Dave Burch dived over'from
the two. Sophomore Billy Rey-
nolds, who attempted two field
goals, tried thebextra point, but
it was partially blocked.

Michigan State was a 23-point

Thornton passed and ran North-
western to a 14-7 victory over Illi-
nois yesterday in a Big Ten foot-
ball finale.
Thornton, 20-year-old Chicagoan
who was disabled last year with a
broken ankle suffered in North-
western's second game, returned
the opening kickoff 83 yards to
set up the Wildcats' first touch-
down, and took charge in an 87-
yard drive in the final quarter for
the game-winning touchdown.
Illinois threatened late in the
fourth quarter when Mel Meyers
tossed a 41-yard pass to Thurman
Walker to the Northwestern 12.
But the fired-up Wildcats not only
held, they tossed Meyers for a;
couple of losses and took over on
the 19-yard line.
The outcome gave both teams
5-4 records for the season, and
2-4 in conference play.
