Passing

Cardinal

key

By BRIAN DEMING
If you enjoyed the Iowa game,
were pleased with the Colo-
rado contest, and liked the
Navy debacle, you should love
the Stanford game.
Or so it would seem.
The Stanford Cardinals, the
team which upset Michigan iny
the '72 Rose Bowl, have yet toE
win a game this year. Thej
Cardinals have lost to Penn
State, 24-2, and Illinois, 41-7, and,
tied San Jose State just last
week, 21-21.
"WE HAVEN'T played the
way we're capable of playing,"
Coach Jack Christiansen re-
marked. Considering the fact
that both Penn State and IllinoisI
are nationally ranked (14 and
15, respectively) and San Jose
State may not be as obscure as
they appear, the Cardinals can
still harbor hope.
The two major reasons for
Cardinal optimism are their
passing attack and defensive
line.
AN HISTORICALLY consis-
tent producer of fine quarter-I
backs, the Palo Alto school has
come up with another passing
oriented attack. Mike Cordova,
a 215 pound sophomore who has
started in all the games thus
far, completed 23 of 51 passes
against Penn State, for over
300 yards.
Cordova has been plagued by
inconsistancy and interceptions
since that game. Four Cordova
aerials were picked off by Il-
linois defensive back Mike Gow
alone.
"We haven't moved the ball
consistently throughout a
game," Christiansen said, "and
for this reason we will start un-
tested sophomore quarterback

Jerry Waldvogel."
RED-SHIRTED I a st y e a r,
Waldvogel has not played this
season but, according to Chris-
tiansen, "played impressively in
the spring game, and has looked
very good in practices this
fall." Sophomore third stringer
Guy Benjamin has completed
11 of 15 passes with one touch:
down playing behind Cordova.
Stanford's shuttling quarter-
backs have averaged over 220
yards per game.
The receiving corps is a cap-
able assembly of ten returning
lettermen. Eric Test, 205-pound
senior, leads the Cardinals in

receptions with 12 for 148 yards. Unfortunately neither has been

Fullback Scott Laidlaw is the

Although the Cardinals have
held opponents to just over 100
passing yards a game contrast-
ed to the over 220 yards per
game given up in rushing, Stan-

"We'll have to hit with them
(Michigan)," Christiansen said.
They are as good or better
looking than I've ever seen
them."

STANFORD has amassed only
230 yards rushing, less than 80
yards per game. This weakness
helped turn the Illinois game
into a rout as the Cardinals
failed time and time again to

THE CLASSIC BATTING form of Frank Robinson shown here will no longer be the trade-
mark of the baseball great. Robinson was named baseball's first black manager ever yester-
day, taking over the Cleveland Indians of the American League. Robinson will be the first
player--manager since Lou Boudreau.

"IF I HAD one wish in the
world today," said the new
manager, "that wish would be
to have Jackie Robinson here
to see this happen."
He said he saw no similarity
between himself and Jackie
Robinson because "times have
changed, the world has chang-
ed; things are just completely
different."
"I hope I don't become
known as a black manager," he
said. "I hope I am judged by
what the ball club does on the
field."
Seghi said he was aware of
the significance of the an-
nouncement, and said he was
aware inferences would be
made that Robinson was named
because he is black.
"But the only reason why

LOS ANGELES LAKER superstar Jerry West announced
his retirement yesterday, ending a brilliant fourteen-year
career with the Lakers. In his announcement, West said he
felt he could no longer play the game the way he wanted
to. "Physically I was sound and would have been able to
play," West said, but I would not have been able to play,
the way I want to play." During his career, West accumu-
lated a total of 25,192 points, including a 63 point barrage
against the New York Knicks in one game in 1969.

It was the first win ever for
the expansion club whose re-
cord now stands at 1-4-1 in ex-
hibition play. The Red Wings
are now 0-6.
Win ger Mike Marson led
the attack for the Capitals
with a hat trick including two
game clinching goals in the
final period. Detroit's Bill
Lochead tied the game at 4-4
with a 30-foot shot from the
right side at 6:56 in the third
period giving the Wings still
plenty of time to go ahead.
But after Gary Bergman, just
obtained from the Minnesota
North Stars, was sent off for
holding, Washington's Marson
responded with a goal at 11:31,
making the score 5-4. The goal
was set up by a perfect pass
from Tom Williams to Marson
just in front of the crease after
the Red Wing defense failed to
clear the puck out of their end.
Later in the period Detroit
muffed several lopsided scor-
ing opportunities. Both a break-
away by Marcel Dionne and a
three-on-one break led by Nick
Libbett went awry.
