WOODY HAS ANOTHER POWERHOUSE
Buckeyes: Tough as ever

By RICH LERNER
Shed no tears for Woody Hay-
es. Woody may have lost Heis-
man Trophy winner Arch Grif-
fin and Big Ten Most Valuable.
Player Corny Greene from last
year's conference champs, but
another Buckeye powerhouse re-
turns.
The Buckeyes are big-Mount
Everest big. Fullback Pete
Johnson outweights all of Mich-
igan's starters. Starting t i g h t
end Jimmy Moore stands 6-6
and tips the scales at 265
pounds. Lining up next to Moore
is tackle Chris Ward, a ,275-
pound hulk.
Whoever replaces G r i f f i n
and Greene, most likely Jeff

Hogan and Rod Gerald re-
spectively, will have an ex-
cellent blocking front to pro-
vide interference.
With Griffin running for the
Cincinnati Bengals, Hayes will
center the offense around his
fullback as in the pre-Griffin
era. The 256-pounder Johnson
rumbled for 26 touchdowns a
year ago, nearly causing Woody
to forget about his predecessors,
Champ Henson, John Brocking-
ton, Jim Otis, Boby Ferguson
et. al.
Sophomore Gerald assumes
field leadership with sterling
credentials but little game ex-
perience. Darrel Royal is still
wondering how Hayes sneaked

the speedy Gerald out of Dal-
las.
Logan hasn't had mtch chance
to show his stuff in Ohio Stad-
ium and if the junior tailback
doesn't measure up, Junior Col-
lege All-American Ron Springs
is waiting in the wings. Springs
led the nation's JUCO's in scor-
ing and rushing a year ago.
Senior Jimmy Harrell, plagued
by injuries throughout his car-
eer, is slated to replace Brian
iBaschnagel at the wingback
spot. Herman Jones returns at
split end.
With the loss of Griffin,
Greene and Baschnagel, this
year's Buckeye backfield will
certainly not be as strong as

last year's. However, the Ohio
State defense should be even
stronger than 1975's Rock of
Gibralter-
Four starters return to the
defensive front wall All-Big Ten
tackle Nick Buonamici and Hay-
es have kissed and made tp
from last spring's altercation
and the 255-pound senior will
anchor the line. Eddie Beamon,
a second team All-Big Ten
choice flanks middle guard
Aaron "Chunky" Brown.
All-conference end Bob Brud-
zinski, a high school team-
mate of Rob Lytle, guards one
side. Any of the four "B's",
Brown, Beamon, Buonamici and
Brudzinski could reach All-
American status.
Fittingly, Farley Bell should
man the end opposite Brudzin-
ski. Ed Thompson and Tom Cou-
sineau are set at the linehack-
in gspots.
If there is a chink in the Buck-
eyes' defensive armor, it is in
the defensive backfield. Hayes
must replace Craig Cassady and
Tim Fox, but Ray Griffin and
Southfield native Bruce Rthl
are back. Lennie Mills should
take over for Cassady, and yet
another Griffin - this o n e
named Duncan - aspires to re-
place safety Fox.
Ohio State's greatest strength
lies in its kicking game. Sup-
erleg Tom Skladany will not
only handle the punting chores
but take over for Tom Kla-
ban as place kicker.
Getting a break against Mich-
igan State today - seven Spar-
tan starters must sit this one
out because of the recruiting
scandal - the Buckeyes face a
rigorous non-conference sched-
ule. After visiting Joe Paterno
and the Penn State Nittany
Lions, the Buckeyes return to
Columbus to host Missouri and
Rose Bowl champ UCLA.
Should Woody and his charges
come off the non-conference
schedule undefeated - w a t c h
out!
