The Reds tallied twice in the
bottom of the first on a double by
Pete Rose, a triple off the center

Cincinnati scored two more runs

in the second inning, then retired
the next ten batters until Dodger

Nolan survived a Los Angeles

Buckner doubled and Allen got an
infield single. Both advanced on
a grounder, but Jim Lefebvre pop-

Blackman, who is in his first year
at the helm for the Fighting
Although Illinois returns 34 let-
terman, almost one-half of the
starting offensive and defensive
teams are comprised of sopho-
mores, as compared to a total of
only four starting seniors.
One can only feel a little sym-
pathetic for these sophomores, as
well as the rest of Illinois' team,
as they have yet to face the likes
of Michigan, Ohio State, Southern
Cal, Washington, and Northwest-
ern, all of whom were ranked
in the Top 20 by' various presea-
son polls.
Nevertheless, Illinois' biggest
problem is its offensive line. Jun-
ior co-captain Larry McCarren is
the lone returning starter, and this
year has made the switch from
tackle to center, where Blackman
believes he is a strong All-Big
Ten candidate.
Aside from McCarren. the other
four lineman have a grand total
of 60 minutes of previous playing
time at their respective positions.
Understandably then, running
through holes created by Illinois'
front line this year may be like
trying to thread a needle.
However, the Illini may have
the horses to offset this problem.
Senior Darrel Robinson, back at
his familiar right halfback posi-
tion was Illinois' leading ground-
gainer last year.

Quarterbacking the team will be
competent Mike Wells, a junior
who connected on 71 of 170 pass-
ing attempts last year for eight
touchdowns.Wells, 6-5, 215, is a
strong runner, and will fit well
into Blackman's numerous option
The defense should fare much
better, as all 11 starters return{
from last year. The left side of the
line, manned by senior co-captain
Glenn Collier at end and Tab
Bennet at tackle, could be one ofI
the best in the Big Ten. Bennet,
who at 240 pounds runs the 40 in
:04.6 seconds, has been tabbed
for All-American honors. Dave
Wright and Bob Bucklin are slat-
ed to hold down the other side of
the line.
The linebacking should be ade-
quate, as Octavus Morgan, Chuck'
Kogurt, and John Wiza are set
to see action there. Greg Colby
figures to start at roverback, a
new position for Illinois installed
by Blackman. The manner in
which Colby handles this demand-
ing position will be pivotal to the
success of the Illini defense. Com-
pleting the defensive unit will be
speedy Willie Osley and John

Graham at the corners and Larry
Huising at safety.
So far Illinois has been nipped
by Michigan State, 10-0, and was
crushed by powerful North Caro-
lina, 27-0. After the State game,
Blackman had praise for his de-
fensive unit, which also performed
better than the score indicated
against the Tarheels. But the of-
fense was obviously inept in both
As is evident, the key to Illinois'
season is their offense, which has
thus far been shut out in both of
its games. (Ironically enough, en-
tering this season, Blackman's
teams had not been shut out in
their last 90 games - a streak
dating back to 1960.) Ifathe of-
fense can adjust to Blackman's
complex system, the Illini could
reach the middle of the Big Ten.
