(Continued fromPage 11)

If Metallic can do the job, he should
benefit from the talents of split end
Rteggie Arnold. The elusive Arnold can
fly and snatched 16 passes for 287 yards
last year.

Both the offensive and defensive lines
concern Young. The Boilermakers
ranked eighth in the Big Ten last fall in
total defense and Young hopes to put
some of his defensive knowledge to
work.

A bright spot for Purdue is its defen-
sive backfield. All Big Ten safety Paul
Berey (5-11, 190) returns along with
capable cohort Rock Supan (6-1, 185).
Last year's linebacking core returns
headed by the teams top tackler, Kevin
Motts.
Supan, the man who downed the
Wolverines last year-with his winning
field goal, returns again to handle the
placekicking chores{,

Ohio State
Now in his 27th year at the helm of
Ohio State, Woody Hayes will field
another powerhouse this fall. After
reeling off a 9-2-1 mark in 1976, the
Buckeyes hope to stay injury-free
before heading into the annual season
finale with Michigan.
"Our strength this year lies in our
four captains," Hayes says. "Ray Grif-
fin is the best safetyman in the country
and will be seriously considered for na-
tional honors. Chris Ward is an excep-
tional fellow and a great competitor."
"We also possess a fast middle guard
that other teams do the honor of double
teaming in Aaron Brown," Hayes adds.
"And without Jeff Logan we would have
been mediocre last year. He grew up
like Archie Griffin and is built like him.
He's a determined kid who is not in Ar-
ch's class but he's the closest thing
we've got to him."
That is quite a nucleus for Woodrow
to work with. All-American offensive
tackle Ward (6-4, 278) bolsters a line
that has the responsibility of opening
holes for backs Logan (5-10, 184) and
Ron Springs (6-2, 196) in addition to pro-
tecting quarterback Rod Gerald (6-1,
175).

revenge
The slippery Gerald can run the op-
tion almost to perfection and if he
hadn't been hurt early in the season last
year who knows how far the Buckeyes
may have gone. Gerald is fully recov-
ered from his back injury and seems to
be throwing the ball better than he did
as a freshman or sophomore.
Springs, who made a name for him-
self in the Buckeyes' 27-10 Orange Bowl
victory over Colorado, possesses great
speed and should complement the
powerful Logan in the backfield.
Logan galloped for 1,248 yards last
year and is hoping for bigger numbers
this year. Logan also has good hands
and is a good clutch receiver. Another
double threat for the Buckeyes is wing-
back Jimmy Harrell, the squad's lead-
ing receiver last year, who can really,
go when he touches the football.
Defensively, Hayes couldn't have
said it better. Brown (6-2, 228) is a quick
middle guard who amazingly makes
tackles despite being double teamed.
Safety Griffin is a hard hitter and won't
be outrun by any receiver.
Along with those two stalwarts,
Hayes owns two fine defensive players
in tackle Eddie Beamon (6-2, 254) and
linebacker Tom Cousineau (6-3, 224).
Beamon is a powerful tackle with
good speed when he manages to pene-
trate the opposing backfield and Cousi-
neau led the Buckeyes in tackles last
fall with 184. Hayes is known for putting
together a stingy defense and this year
will be no exception.
"We feel we lost the best kicker
American college football has ever seen
in Tom Skladany," Hayes says. "Our
biggest problem will be replacing him
and it may take two or three guys."
Skladany boomed punts consistently
and kept the opposition in its own terri-
tory with his titanic boots. He had long
range on field goals also and very few of
his kickoffs were returned all year.
On September 24, Oklahoma invades
Columbus and after that Woody might
just mow down the Big Ten opponents
until the November 19 clash in Ann Ar-
bor.
