The main attraction in the
arena of college football is more
often than not the major con-
ference races to see which
champions will be extended in-
vitations to play in bowl games.
However, there exists a sepa-
rate class of gridiron squads,
known as the independents,
which usually puts on some
kind of sideshow, with one of
its representatives stealing the
show in post-season action.
The mention of the word inde-
pendents should immediately
bring the thought of Notre
Dame to mind. Last year's run-
ner-up to Nebraska for national
honors; the Fighting Irish
should once again be a power-
Led by mentor Ara Parse-
ghian, Notre Dame has 16 out of
22 starters returning with the
memory of a 24-11 victory over
Texas in the Cotton Bowl un-
der their belts.
Last year, Notre Dame's rug-
ged defense grudgingly gave up
only 108 points against power-
house teams like Georgia Tech.
In the season's opener last week,
the Notre Dame defense inter-
cepted seven passes and block-
ed a punt, displaying awesome
control over Northwestern's of-
fense while winning 50-7.
With such defensive talents as

The University of Iowa is not
famo'us for talented football
teams. But this year Iowa has
moved into new ground with the
acquisition of a new coach with a
wonder-worker reputation, Frank
Lauterbur of Toledo. His 23-
game win streak was the high-
light of an eight-year career as
the Toledo head coach.
This year, however, it's a dif-
ferent story, with another type
of team in a definitely different
league. Lauterbur seems hope-
ful that he can do the same thing
at Iowa that he did, at Toledo,
saying, "It's a different league
and the circumstances are differ-
ent, but that's why we're here."
Lauterbur has some reason for
optimism. He has a strong sec-
ondary defense, in which. he has
"We were hurt in the Ohio
State game because our captain,
(Steve) Clemens, was sidelined
with a virus infection. I think he's
the best in the country, though,
when he's in the game," com-
Another reason for his opti-
mism is the presence of a tailback

named Levi Mitchell who rushed
980 yards in a school record 205
carries last year. "He's a fine
running back who's quick and
dangerous when he has the ball.
I'd like him to have the ball more"
mentioned the Hawkeye mentor.
Another valuable plus on Lau-
terbur's squad is the presence of
nine returning starters. These in-
clude co-captain and guard Geoff
Mickelson, tailback Mitchell, tac-
kle John Muller, and guard Chuck
Legler on offense.
On defense there are co-captain
and cornerback Craig Clemens,
defensive backs Charlie- Podolak,
Rich Solomon and Jerry Johnson,
and tackles Jerry Nelson and Bill
As many reasons as there are
for optimism in the coach's of-
fice, there are also reasons foi4
dismay. For one thing, the Hawk-
eyes are made up of mostly small
rookies. He is concerned about
the size of his players, saying, "We
have to work with what we've got,
but they certainly could do a lot
better, job on defense. As for the
size problem, I'd really like to
get Alex Karras on waivers."
Rookies dominate the Hawkeye
team. There are 32 juniors, 20 so-
phomores and only 19 seniors,
most of whom did not start in
last year's games. Top sopho-
mores for the Hawkeyes are re-
serve quarterbacks Rob Fick and
John Highland, tailback Harold
Johnson, wingback Dave Jackson,
split end Brian Rollins, lineback-
er Harry Young, place wicker Har-
ry Kokolus, and tackle Jim Was-
Two of Iowa's most talented of-j
fensive linemen are juniors Craig
Darling and Tom Cabalka.
Besides the personal problems
of being a rookie coach LauterburI
has worries about the fact that he
has no proven quarterback or line-
backers. He expresses cautious op-
timism about his starting quarter-
back, Frank Sunderman: "He im-
proved quite a bit in the Ohio
State game and has a lot of poise
for a rookie."
The Hawkeye's offensive phil-
osophy is new this year and the
defense has changed from a 4-3-4
to a 5-2-4. All the innovation
on the team is bound to cause
After the dismal 52-21 opening
against Ohio State Lauterbur
felt that his defense needed im-
provement "everywhere". He in-
tends to try to weld the team to-
gether and warns that "we better
It has been a long time since
the Hawkeyes have won a Big Ten
championship. The last time they
were on top was way back in 1956.
But as it's phrased in Ecclesiasties,
"to everything there is a seas-
son" and someday, perhaps with
the help of coach Frank Lauter-
bur and a mature team, Iowa's
time will come.
