Ducks seek recovery
from quack remedies

HOLDING LEADERS?
aS: Good, bad, and us

By MARC FELDMAN
Last year, quarterback Dan
Fouts was the Oregon offense.
Dan Fouts is gone and so, it
seems, is the Oregon offense.
The Ducks did manage to win
four games last fall, including an
upset win over the inconsistent
Stanford Cardinals, but some of
the horrendous beatings admin-
istered upon the webbed-footed
ones were more memorable.
There was that squeaker in
Norman, Oklahoma last Septem-
ber when the Sooners struggled
for 731 yards in total offense and
escaped with a 68-3 win.
The following week in Los An-
geles, the Duck defense contin-
ued its inspired play by hold-

ing UCLA to just 65 points as the
Bruins managed a 65-20 win.'
Things weren't quite that bad
all year since rookie coach Dick
Enright defeated cross-state riv-

al Oregon State in the season fi-
nale 30-3, after an impressive 27-
2 win over San Jose State in
the next to last game. In addi-
tion, OU held national champion,
Southern Cal, to one of its least
impressive wins of the year, by a
respectable 18-0 count, after a
scoreless first half.

Naturally, the rushing game
was ignored with Fouts around
and the Webfoot runners were
basically an unknown commodi-
ty. Oregon rushed for an aver-
age of only 108 yards per game
and the handoff was more of a
change of pace than an offensive
weapon.
One Duck runner did distin-
guish himself, Don Reynolds. The
5-8, 181 pound Reynolds averag-
ed a fine 8.1 yards-per-carry in
scampering for 421 yards after
becoming a starter midway
through the campaign. He will be
backed up by a man with an un-
usual name, Oreaser Brown,
while Henderson Martin (5-9,
195) mans the fullback slot.
n Eight starters return defensive-
ly so the question remains whe-
ther the Ducks are the team that
yielded 133 points in two weeks
or the one that held San Jose
State and Oregon State to five
in an equal number of games.
In preseason a year ago, the
combination of, inexperienced
players and a new coach made
things difficult for the Web-foots
when Oklahoma and UCLA were
the opposition. Enright has his
system in gear and 16 of the 22
Ducks who won the last _two
games return, so improvement
may be on the way.
If Oregon is to be competitive,
the defense, not exactly a bastion
of strength last year, must per-
form well. Fouts is gone, and
Enright is looking for an offense.

By CLARKE COGSDILL
For some strange reason, pos-
sibly having something. to do
with the teachings of an ulcer-
prone teeny-bopping Perfect Mas-
ter, lots of people think last
year's statistics can tell us some-,
thing about how this year's teams
will perform. The table of 1972
Big Ten Statistical Leaders Re-
turning In 1973 is furnished for
their delectation.
While they meditate upon the
fact that returnee Mitch Ander-
son managed to lead the .Big
Ten in passing last year while
his Northwestern Wildcat team-
mates soared to a 1-9 season
record, the rest of us can turn
our minds to loftier things: the
stat the Big Ten doesn't give us,
to wit, the important ones.
For example, we can consider
the case of David E. Brown, a
running back from Michigan
State. The official statistics tell
us he was the Big Ten's fifth
leading rusher last year, gain-
ing 565 yards for an impressive

4.9 yards per carry. The Spar-
tans, therefore, have a real stud
returning to their backfield,
right?
Maybe the Perfect Master is
right, too. In their wisdom, the
Big Ten publicity wizards failed
to c o m p i 1 e the fascinating
"Games Decided By Lost Fum-
bles" standings, wherein Mr.
Brown would rate an honorable
place.
REMEMBER T H.E Spartan-
Wolverine game last year? Re-
member the MSU drive that
stalled when the aforementioned
David E. Brown fumbled on the
Michigan three yard line.
Granted, "our" Dave Brown
popped one of the hardest hits
anyone has seen, but the ball
squirted loose, it bounced into
the endzone, the Wolverines re-
covered, and MSU lost a tight
game. Definitely a d e c i s i v e
bobble.
Recalling the MSU game last
year brings to mind another in-

--I

Big Ten leaders

Wildcat QB
teresting datum: "Touchdowns
Nullified by Clips." Although the
Spartans were shut out, they did
get into the endzone when Mark
Niesen swept his right end for
14 yards. Lucky for Bo Schem-
bechler, the official was watch-
ing tight end Billy Jo Dupree,
who forgot to block his man
from the front.
Fifteen yards. No score. Niesen
probably didn't need Dupree's
clip to make it across the goal
line anyway.

MOO U. MENTOR Denny Stolz
suggests a further refinement:
"Touchdowns Scored On Clips
the Refs Missed." He swears
that Gil Chapman's TD end-
around was made possible be-
cause a Wolverine made an il-
legal block.
Offensive linemen continually
complain that they don't receive
enough attention from the media.
Undoubtedly, this is because they
are the only players who don't
have a statistic to call their own.
For these people, probably the
best indicator would be some-
thing else the Big Ten doesn't
tell us: "Undetected Offensive
Holding." The ability to hold
without getting caught can mean
the difference between a starter's
job and a position pouring Wol-
verine-ade for the student man-
agers.
Try it yourself. Next time you
visit the Stadium, take along
your binoculars, focus on the
other team's most effective block-
er, and watch his hands very
closely.
Switching over to defense . . .
it was- truly magnanimous of the
Big Ten to furnish us with in-
dividual pass interceptions rec-
ords. We all know how important
they are.
Unfortunately, interceptions tell
us only part of the story about
defensive backs. Equally impor-
tant is the absent category
"Times Nabbed for Pass Inter-
ference."
