Agase cites injuries, turnovers
as Boilermaker trouble spots

The famous Purdue MarchingE
Band won't make the Ann Ar-
bor scene Saturday for its usual
scintillating halftime perform-
ance. Fans will have to bersatis-
fied with 60 minutes from the
world's most erratic college
football team, the Boilermakers.
Purdue has risen to the
heights of victory over its peren-I
nial tormentors, Notre Dame's
Fighting Irish, and has turned
in impressive performances
against weaker opponents.
ermakers have also sunk to the
depths of inept defeat against
such recognized patsies as Duke
and Minnesota.

Whenever the Boilermakers
get their hands on the ball,
whether by a turnover or any-
thing else, they develop an over-
whelming urge to throw it.
Standing serenely behind his
wall of blockers, and scrambling
madly when that doesn't work,
sonhomore quarterback Mark
Vitali searches out open re-
ceivers and completes passes to

firmly established, the Boiler-
makers send in the infantry, led
by the best runner Purdue has
had since Otis Armstrong, tail-
back Scott Dierking. A frequent
ball carrier in Purdue's option
attack, Dierking has rushed for
597 yards thus far.
Mike Pruitt, a Chuck Heater-
size fullback, has been doing an
excellent job since he came off
the bench five weeks ago.
The defense has been much
more porous than the usual Pur-
due variety, but Alex Agase
could explain that too.
"OUR DEFENSE is very
young, and to make things
worse we've had a lot of prob-
lems with injury," he said. In-
deed, team leader Ken Novak,

"The reason we're so erra- them with a consistency that
tic," explains Purdue head leaves defensive coaches with
coach Alex Agase, "is that we

have a very uneven pattern of
turnovers in our games. If
neither team makes big mis-
takes, we play a very even
game, but that hasn't happened
much this season."

"If neither team makes big mistakes, we
play a very even game."

DAILY LIBEL player-coach-owner-general manager Fielding H.
Feldman has been reprimanded by sports czar Bowie Rozelle
for "intimidating opponents."
The alleged intimidation occurred at the Libels' weekly
press luncheon. At the luncheon, the aging quarterback was
heard to say "Those Yomiuri Giants are in for a lot of
trouble. After being held to only 18-0 and 12-0 wins by the
Datum Technics, we're going to want a rout. I'd say 222-0
would be a good guess of the score."
The reprimand might never have hanpned, though, if
Feldman hadn't turned to a representative of the Giants, laughed
in his face. and given him a copy of the Libel playbook while'
saying, "a lot of good this will do you. Start praying, loser."
