NEW ORLEANS (AP)- Penn State Coach Joe Paterno
said yesterday that he's glad to have the chance to play top-
ranked Georgia for the national championship in the Sugar
Bowl. He argued, however, with the contention that he never
won the crown before.
"We won three national championships-1968, 1969 and..
1973. We just got voted out of them," he said.
OFFICIALLY, Penn State finished second in 1968 and 1969
and fifth in 1973 despite perfect records each season.
Paterno took off a bulky ring and displayed it.
"They say you only get a ring when you win the national
championship," he said. "In '73, I hadE
my own ring made and gave it to the
A VICTORY over 11-0 Georgia on ,

But so would the method Paterno said

he said. "I , know Mickey

tor) and those guys don't like to hear
But Paterno's proposal would
preserve at least part of the bowl struc-
"I've always felt that after the bowls
are over, you could come out with four
teams and play semifinals and finals." Wa
That would result in 14-game seasons for the two finalists and
13-game seasons for the two teams that bowed in the
HIS CONCERNS yesterday were more immediate and less
theoretical than that, though. He talked about Georgia and
running back Herschel Walker.
"Obviously, they have one of the greatest football players
who ever lived in Herschel Walker," he said.
He admitted that he has not yet sat down to study film of
Georgia, so he hasn't seen anything but game highlights of
"I GET very nervous when I see
those film clips of Georgia. I never see
him get tackled," Paterno said.
If Walker isn't a shoo-in for the
Heisman Trophy, then Penn State quar-
terback Todd Blackledge has to be con-
sidered a strong candidate, he said.
Any mention of Stanford quarterback
John Elway must open the door for
Blackledge, Paterno claimed.
"I have not seen Elway very much. I
think our kid, Blackledge, probably
does as much as he does, if you're going
to talk quarterbacks," he said.-
Blackledge has won more games
against tougher opponents than Elway
has, he said.
"Based on performance and what he
means to our football team and theG
schedule we played, I'd take my kid."
The most praised and loved ro-
mantic film of the season.
