Tigers

By RANDY PHILLIPS*
Southeastern Conference de-
fenses won't be whistling Dixie
this year when they come to
blows with the golden arm of;
Archie Manning from Mississip-
pi and his all star cast of 40 re-
turning lettermen.
Manning led the Rebels to a
7-3 season and an upset over
Arkansas in the Sugar B o w 1
last year. In the process he hit
on 58.1 per cent of his passes.
and ranked 8th in the nation in
total offense.
The Rebel offensive unit re-
turns intact except at the full-
back slot where two able re-
placements are ready to step in.
Three sticky fingered receivers,
Floyd Franks, Riley Meyers, and,
Jim Poole Jr., are, back to pro-
vide bullseyes for Manning to
hit.
The biggest difficulty seen for
Mississippi is the defensive line
where only Dennis Coleman ap-
pears solid at the end spot.
Mississippi plays a rather easy
schedule with o n 1 y Houston's
scoring machine and the sea-
son's finale with tough LSU in

the impossible Tiger's den at'
Baton Rouge standing in the
way of an unblemished record
and the conference crown.
LSU LOST 12 starters from
last year's squad, but only four
of those were from the nation's
No. 1 defense against the rush.
John Sage and Arthur Davis re-
turn on the line along w i t h
Mike Anderson at a linebacker
post.
The Tiger's secondary should
throw a few wrenches into its
opponents' passing attacks, as
the entire backfield returns this
year.
Four candidates for quarter-
back are fighting it out for the
job of graduated Mike Hillman.
The quarterback position could
be the key to the entire season.
Moans and groans can be
heard all the way from Gaines-
ville, Florida as the Gators try
to make do without their super-
pass grabber, the Cuban Comet,
Carlos Alvarez. Alvarez, con-
verted from a running back af-
ter coming to the Gators, team-

ed up with quarterback John
Reaves to provide Florida with
the most potent passing combi-
nation since Hanratty and Sey-
mour. But a bad knee required
surgery; and Carlos is a doubt-
ful participant in this year's ac-
tivities. Reaves, however, will
n o t be without help. Tommy
Durrance at tailback will pro-
vide the rushing yardage if some
big holes in the offensive line
can be patched up.
IN ADDITION to the offen-
sive line, the defense needs a bit
of repair work. Only four start-
ers return, and this could be the
biggest headache that n e w
coach Doug Dickey will have.
The Gators play a tough sch--
edule including rival indepen-
dents Florida State and Miami.,
The Gators meet Duke in their
opener this Saturday.
Tennessee probably plays the
easiest schedule of the teams in
the conference, and as a result
one would think that last year's
crown winner would h a v e a
good chance'to repeat. But the
Vols sturdy defense w a s hit
hard by graduation. Eight loss-

for SE(
es including linebacker Steve
Kiner present the Volunteers .
with a glaring weakness. And in
the SEC it takes a good de-
fense to win.
AUBURN AND GEORGIA are
always formidable foes in SEC
play, and this year will not be
any different. Auburn's mighty
defense will be weaker, but five
of six top threats on offense led
by quarterback Pat Sullivan and
running back Mickey Zofko are
back to help out.,
The Bulldogs will h a v e an
adequate scoring attack, but
their defensive line will be weak
although bigger than usual.
Fullback Julian Smiley head-
lines the offense.

title

Alabama plays the worst sch-
,edule of all the SEC teams with
USC, Houston, Miami, LSV,
Florida, a n d Mississippi on
hand to try and make it two
losing seasons in a row for the
Crimson Tide. Coach Bear Bry-
ant will surely need 6 few mir-
acles to come out alive despite
the fine passing of quarterback
Scott Hunter.
Vanderbilt; Kentucky, a n d
Mississippi State round out the
rest of the conference, but none
of these squads should p o se
much of a threat to the others.
Kentucky takes on North Car-
olina Saturday, while Vander-
bilt entertains Chattanooga and
Mississippi State hosts Oklaho-
ma State this weekend.

By JIM KEVRA,
The year of the quarterback!
That's what publicity men
throughout the cohntry are bill-
ing the 1970 college football sea-
son and for once, the publicity
men are right. Almost every team
which is nationally ranked has a
veteran quarterback and almost
every one of these quarterbacks is
a potential All-American. Of the
top 118 teams in the country, more
than 70 have a veteran signal call-
er returning.
THE SOUTH (as usual) has the
finest quarterbacks in the na-
tion and Archie Manning of Mis-
sissippi heads the list. Manning,
the pre-season -favorite for the
Heismann trophy, ranked in the
top ten last season in ,both passa
ing yardage and total offense,
while leading the Rebels to a 7-3
record and a Sugar Bowl victory
over Arkansas.
The - Crimson Tide of Alabama
has found another quarterback,

Scott Hunter, to follow in the
footsteps of Joe Namath and
"Snake" Stabler. Hunter, also one
of the top dozen in passing and
total offense, is,- not the break-
away type of runner that Manning
is but shows more accuracy as a
passer.
ALTHOUGH ONLY a sopho-

last season's top passer with 222
completions good for almost 3,000
yards. Reeves will have trouble

year as his key receiver, flanker-
back Carlos Alvarez, was injured
in practice and may miss part of
the season.
Bill Montgomery of Arkansas~
last years losers in, the Sugar
Bowl, Chuck Hixson of SMU and
Kelly Cochrane are other south-
ern superstars.
The midwest boasts a few quar-
terbacks worth recognitioni. Rex
Kern of Ohio State and Do n
Moorhead of Michigan are two
signal callers who, although not
high in the statistic department,
have shown the ability to win ball-
games. Head coach Bo Schem-
bechler thinks so highly of Moor-
head that he claims, "As long as
Moorhead's whole, we have as
good a quarterback as there is
in the country".
JIM PLUNKETT of Stanford
ranks as the best quarterback in
the west. A second team All-
American, Plunkett completed 197
passes for 20 touchdowns and over
2,600 yards and was fifth in the
nation in total offense. Dennis
Dummit' of UCLA and Jimmy
Jones of USC should also rank
high in the statistics department.
This Saturday, in a nationally
televised game Jim Plunkett's
Stanford team will jtake on the
Arkansas Razorbacs led by Bill
Montgonrery in what should be a
fitting start to the year of the
quarterback.
