Indiana seeks better year

Pooler and Boykin
power Northwestern

By RICH LERNER
Indiana should field a much-
improved football team this
year. Coach Lee Corso has 16
full-time starters returning, and
31 players who started at least
one game. The flamboyant Cor-
so also has some top-notch in-
dividuals lining up for the
Cream and Crimson. In fact,
Corso thinks the Hoosiers have
a shot at the championship.
"We've got everybody back.
We got a couple of good recruit-
ing years back-to-back," Corso
says. "Yet, I don't think we
got a freshman that can help
us, and that's the best news I
can think of."
WITH EIGHT players re-
turning to the offense, Corso has
a potentially explosive attack.

Quarterback Terry Jones led
the Big Ten in passing last year,
throwing for 1347 yards and ele-
ven touchdowns. However,
Jones will have a dogfight to
keep his job. Transfer Dobby
Grossman was a part-time
starter for two years at South
Carolina before coming home
to Bloomington. Senior 3 o b
Kramer is also an able signal-
caller.
Halfback Courtney Snyder
netted 1254 yards on the ground
last fall. The first-team all-Big
Ten selection ranks third on the
all-time Indiana rushing lead-
ers, and still had two years of
eligibility remaining.
Senior split end Trent Smock
snared 31 passes last year for
seven tallies, leading confer-
ence receivers in touchdowns.

"SMOCK is a rarity at In-
diana," Corso beams,: "he gave
up basketball for football."
Flanker Keith Calvin graabed
29 passes as a freshman, a
year ago, and combines with
Smock to give Jones and Gross-
man one of the best receiving
corps in the conference and
the nation.
Reggie Holmes -and Mark
Miklozek have nailed down the
fullback and tight tnd positions
respectively.
6-7, 268-pound tackle David
Knowles and three-year starter
Jim Schuck at center anchor a
capable offensive 'The.
CERTAINLY, the Hoosiers
should be able to syore points.

There are two changes at
Northwestern this season. One
is a $500,000 touch-up job on
Dyche Stadium. The other is
John Pont's switch from an air-
oriented attack to a running
game. Pont has two big reasons
for abandoning the pass - Jim
Pooler and Greg Boykin.
Boykin, a 6-2, 225-pound sen-
ior tailback, gained 624 yards
rushing as a freshman and 350
yards as a sophomore. However,
he missed all of last year with
a cracked fibula. Coach Pont
is counting on Boykin return-
ing to his form of 1972 when he
was named to the all-Big Ten
second team and his 194 yards
and four touchdowns in the
spring game indicate that he
will.
Pooler stepped into the start-
ing role a year ago, when
Boykin broke his leg and
gained 949 yards rushing be-
fore the year was out.
To go with Boykin and Pool-
er, Pont will have fullback Rich
Boothe (375 yards last season),
an excellent blocker.
To prepare for the de-emphas-
is of the pass, 195-pound tight
end Scott Yelvington has moved
to split receiver, while 6-6, 232
pound Dan Cleary takes over
at tight end.
"We now feel that we have
the forward thrust to establish
the run," Pont said. "We have
to form the offensive forma-
tions that keep both Boykin and
Pooler on the field.
To have one or the other on
the bench would be criminal.
"We're not going to put the
ball in the air 30 times a
game," Pont assured.
As the season starts, the Wild-
cats have not yet found an ade-
quate quarterback. The Big
Ten's leading passer of 1972 and
1973, Mitch Anderson has grad-
uated, leaving the Purple Haze
leaderless.
Walk-on Randy Dean is the
frontrunner for the starting posi-
tion, but only by default. Kim

Girkins and Steve Moor stayed
out of spring practice to partici-
pate on the baseball team.
While the baseball coach - may
love them for that, it did not
particularly endear them to
Pont. Pont insists that Dean will
start.
No matter who the quarter-
hack is, Dean, Girkins or Moor,
he will have a strong set of re-
ceivers to aim his aerials at.
Yelvington led the Big Ten
in receiving last year with 37
receptions, while flanker Wayne
Frederickson caught 14 passes
and Boothe 11.
The offensive line will be in-
experienced. Guard Randy Ku-
ceyski is the only returning
starter. Jim Foskett, a two-year
starter at tackle wrecked his
knee and will not see action this
fall.
Pont insists that the Wild-
cat defense, last in the con-
ference in scoring defense a
year ago will be improved.
Middle guard Paul Maly, a
high school teammate of Mich-
iean's Steve Grote and Jerry
Vogele returns to start after sit-
ting out last year with a broken
foot. Maly combines with tack-
les John Holliday and Marty
Szostak to form a strong inter-
ior line.
While the middle of the de-
fense is strong, the outside de-
fenders are young and inexper-
ienced, which may leave the
Purole Haze vulnerable to the
ontion play and sweeps. B o t h
linebacking positions will be
filled by sonhomores. Al Benz
and Greg Stanley. Kevin
Sprouse and letterman Terry
Br'ntlev flank the line.
The defensive backfield is a
sound unit. So sound, in fact
that the league's second lead-
ing interceptor, Malcolm Hunt-
er has switched to split end.
Pete Shaw starts at weak
safety with Steve Scardina at
strong safety. Mark Harlow and
Jim Hutchings man the corner-
back slots, with Neil Little pro-
viding excellent depth.

Since Bo Schembechler has
been coach at Michigan, only
one team has defeated the Wol-
verines in Michigan Stadium.
Missouri stomped Michigan 40-
17 on October 4, 1969. Exactly
six years from that date, the
Tigers will again enter Michi-
gan Stadium and challenge the
Wolverines.
The Tigers aren't the same
team that soundly defeated
Michigan six vears ago. Besides
losing its national renutation,
Missouri lost its old coach, Dan
Devine.

AL ONOFORIO took over the
reins from Devine in 1972. Since
then, 01 Mizzou has played
slightly under .500 with a 22-24-
0 record.A
But don't let that record fool
anyone. The Tigers can pull off
the upset at any time.
THE OFFENSE is piloted by
rifle-armed junior Steve Pisar-
kiewicz. Last year, Pisarkie-
wicz was top pnsser in the Big
Eight. and he nlaved only half
the season. He had 70 comnile-
tions in 156 attempts, totalling
828 yards.

MISSOURI'S highly touted tailback Tony Galbreath, will be
one of the Wolverines' main concerns when they' square off
with the Tigers on October 8. In Missouri's surprising 20-7 up-
set of No. 2 ranked Alabama in its season opener, Galbreath
rambled for 120 yards in 32 carries and scored on a three yard
jaunt. Michigan will also have to be wary of the relentless
Tiger defense that helped snap the Crimson Tide's 22-game
win streak. Missouri is ranked fifth in the UPI poll.
