Hawks' hopes hinge on running

Indiana's super sophomores
to lead Hoosier cage revival

In recent years Iowa footbal
teams have been starting their sea-
sons off slowly and then tapering
off. This year seems to be no ex-
ception as, the Hawkeyes invade
Michigan sporting a 2-5-1 record
Trouble began to brew in Iowa
City last year when Athletic Di.
rector Forest Evashevski canned
coach Ray Nagel, and then the
athletic board dumped Evashev
ski, rehired Nagel and presentec
Bump Elliott with the athletic
director's job.
Then the starting quarterback
Larry Lawrence became dissatis-
fied with the school in the corr
belt and went packing.
Although the Iowans profess tc
have no morale problems, jobs ir
their athletic department offer
as much security as the Oakland
Athletic's managerial position.
The Hawkeyes started the sea-
son with senior Roy Bash at the
offensive helm. Bash guided Iowa
to three non-conference lose,
against Oregon State, Southern
Cal and Arizona. He was largely
unimpressive, hitting on nine o:
32 passes for a 28 per cent com.
pletion ratio.
Bash was shelved after the non.
conference meetings in favor of
sophomore Kyle Skogman. Skog-
man led the team through their
first four Big Ten games, emerg.
ing with one victory and one tie
However, Skogman's statistics
were none too impressive: 35 for
105 passing and -17 net yards
As a result of Skogman's less
than sterling performance, he was
replaced by Bash, who met with
some success against Indiana lasi
week. This brings us to the
Michigan game, and it appears
that Bash will once against gel
the nod.
Not all of Iowa's fortunes resi
upon the success of their signa.
callers, however. The Hawkeyes
sport one of the most effective
running backs in the conference,
Levi Mitchell. Mitchell, a 5-9, 18(
pound junior, has netted 807 yards
in 177 carries this year, averaging
4.6 yards a try. He has also haul-
ed in eight passes for 71 yards.
Mitchell's running mate in the
backfield is 6-2, 220 pound senior
fullback Tim Sullivan who is re-
bounding after missing all of last
year due to a motorcycle accident,
He has amassed 458 yards in 115
attempts after it was doubtful that
he would play at all this year.
The other offensive mainstay
is split end Kerry Reardon, a
senior who has pulled in. 20 aerials
for the team lead. The rest of the
offense reeks. The kindest words
Nagel could find for his offensive
line were "they've improved over
the last few games."
The Iowa press guide predicted
that there would be dramatic im-

provement in the defense which
surrendered 275 points last season.
Actually, it has improved some-
what; this year the defenders have
been pierced for 23.5 points per
game, a "dramatic" reduction of
four points.
Nagel picked out three members
of the defense as deserving of
special recognition, possibly a
Purple Heart. End Layne McDow-
ell has had a part in 34 tackles
and linebacker Dan McDonald in
50. Defensive back Craig C l e-
mons, Nagel's other stalwart, has
picked off three of Iowa's four in-
In addition, linebacker D a v e
Clement owns credit for 55 unas-
sisted tackles. In all, the defense
has given up 3100 yards, while the
offense has picked up 2300.
The Hawkeyes plan to throw
the same offensive formations
(Wing T and spread wing) this
week as they have employed a 11
season. Nagel also indicated that
his team will alternate between a
4-3 and a 5-2 on defense.
When Iowa comes roaring into
Ann Arbor this weekend they will
be carrying with them a two game
conference unbeaten streak. T h e
last time the Hawkeyes went un-
beaten for three games in Big Ten
play was in 1960, and now, a mere
decade later, the battling birds
are just one small game away
from equaling that feat.

(Eighth in a series)I
Something is brewing at In-
diana, and it could mean three
years of woe for the other nine
Big Ten basketball teams.
Eight of Indiana's top twelve
players this season will be sopho-
mores and one, George McGinnis,
is touted as the best rookie in the
Big Ten.
Every coach in the conference
is saying "Look out for Indiana,"
despite the fact that the Hoosiers
finished last in Big Ten play in
1969-70. Coach Lou Watson and
his boys won't be breaking prece-
dent if they make the long jump
to first this year, however, because
the Hoosiers did the same thing
back in 1966-67.
"We're going to be awful young,
says Watson "but we'd like to do it
Laying the foundation for In-
diana's title hopes will be three
returning starters: Jim "Bubbles"
Harris, Joby Wright and R i c k
Ford. The 6-0 Harris was the
classiest Hoosier in uniform last
year, averaging 18.0 points a game,
while 6-8 junior center Wright
chipped in with 14.7 and provided
a lot of boards.
The Indiana freshman team lost
only to Purdue and Ohio State
last year ,an awesome performance
considering that McGinnis and
6-8 Steve Downing were ineligible
and two other superfrosh, 6-5
John Ritter and 6-4 Ed Daniels,
were bothered by injuries.
McGinnis is a 6-7, 235-pound
mapleman who was the first Ind-
iana prep ever to top 1,000 points
in a single season: neither Rick
Mount nor Oscar Robertson were
able to do it in their schoolboy
careers. Watson raves about Mc-
Ginnis' great strength, saying
"George has the ability to follow-
up his own missed shots," and
calls him a potential great scor
er. But, says the Hoosier mentor,
"George still needs to learn to
- ---

play at both ends of the court."
Just as McGinnis is characteriz-
ed as a great offensive player,
Downing is called by his coach "a
fine defensive player who will
block a lot of shots and b o t h e r
people inside." Another home-
grown product. Downing played on
the Indiana high-school All-star
team with McGinnis, Ritter and
another sophomore, 5-10 guard
Bootsie White.
The brains of the team should
be provided by Ritter, a 3.8 stu-
dent whom Watson calls "real
smart on the court." Ritter will
switch off between guard and for-
Daniels is a guard who is only

adequate outside, but is a good
ball-handler and will add to In-
diana's awesome board strength.
Indiana is likely to start out
the season with McGinnis and
Downing up front, Wright in the
middle, and Daniels and Harris
at guards - a lineup that will be
tough to beat.
Watson sees Illinois (the team
which will be previewed tomor-
row) as the Big Ten's team to
beat, but says "You can't over-
look Purdue. They have m o r e
veterans coming back than any-
one in the league." He also ex-
pects trouble from Minnesota,
Ohio State, and naturally, our own
man-eating Blue.

SHawks humiliate Flyers;
Rangers, Penguins draw

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO - Bobby and Dennis
Hull scored two goals each to race
the Chicago Black Hawks to a 7-1
victory over the Philadelphia Fly-
ers in a National Hockey League;
game last night.
The triumph boosted the Hawk's
hold on first place in the
League's West Division to f o u r
points over the Flyers and idle
St. Louis Blues. s
Dennis Hull opened the Chi-
cago attack at :20 of the first1
period by converting on Stan Mi-
kita's pass from the boards behind
the Flyer net.
Bobby Clarke got the Flyers even
at 10:55 of the period but the
Hawks quickly took command on
goals by Keith Magnuson, C h i c o
Maki and Bill White.

ly Boyer gave the Pittsburgh Pen-
guins a 3-3 National Hockey
League tie against the New York
Rangers last night.
A pair of second-period goals 62
seconds apart by Dave Balon and
Ted Irvine had moved New York
into a 3-1 lead and it stayed that
way through the early stages of
the final period.
Boyer's goal came on a scramble
in front of the New York net-
minder, Ed Giacomin, and closely
resembled the opening goal of the
game scored by New York's Vic
Hatfield, who beat Pittsburgh's
netminder Al Smith from a tangle
in front of the goal.
