But you have to come to grips with It some way. Saturday was a bench mark for University of 1 Cincinnati football. For the first time In seven years and only the third time ever the Bearcats were playing a game downtown. Beginning this season, most of the team's home games will be played at The school wants big time football. Craves it.

Lusts after it 1 On the field, It's no problem. Mike Gottfried, the UC coach, has a quarterback named Danny Barrett who can fling the ball from here to Boynton Beach, his hometown. Saturday, Barrett played a symphony. He threw four touchdown passes, tying a school record. The Bearcats bashed Louisville, 38-16.

By the fourth quarter, the UC bench was one huge party. Then the attendance figure was announced. In the press box, people shook their heads. That is UC's big time problem. Off the field.

In the stands. (See PURDY, Page C-2) BY TERRY FLYNN Enquirer Reporter 1 Danny Barrett insisted on underplaying his role In University of Cincinnati's impressive 38-16 victory over Ohio River rival Louisville at Riverfront Stadium Saturday. That's just another sign of the senior quarterback's confidence in his own ability to produce points and guide the Bearcats. Barrett riddled the Cardinal secondary for 311 yards and threw four touchdown passes among his 11 completions (23 attempts), but after the game he pointed to his teammates as the source of his success. "It was a great overall team effort," Barrett said.

"The offensive line gets first credit for this game. They gave me the time to find the receivers, and (Louisville) didn't get to the pocket all day." Actually, the Cardinals did reach Barrett once, sacking him for a 10-yard loss, but for most of the game the UC backfield was devoid of oncoming traffic. WHATEVER ELSE may be said, pro or con, about the Bearcats, you have to admit they are entertaining. A week ago they put 31 points on the board against Florida State, and Saturday Barrett and Co. scored four of UC's five touchdowns with a razzle-dazzle aerial attack.

The performance tied Barrett with Gene Rossi, Greg Cook and Tim Morris for most TD passes in a UC game. The onslaught started slowly. The Bearcat defense starred in the scoreless first quarter, stopping a Louisville drive on the 20- house backfield, Francisco's longest crer run was an audible called at tuo line by quarterback John Shaffer. "I wasn't expecting that big hole to be there," Francisco said. "It was a delayed draw, and I just shot up the middle." Klonne, meanwhile, felt that switching the offensive backfield formation was the key to the team's offensive theatrics.

"One we got Into the (formation), we took, out strength against theirs and we Just took it to them," he said. The Moeller offense took a little time to warm up in the first half, but when it finally did there was literally no stopping it? The McKinley DENO FOSTER, University of Cincinnati wide receiver, dances into the end touchdown receptions in Saturday's victory over Louisville. Moeller Gets Revenge, Swamps Canton settled down and just put the "ball in the air in the second half. And the receivers were still open." Barrett hooked up three times with junior wide receiver Deno Foster, the first on a 17-yard play near the end of the second quartet with Foster collecting the pass in the end zone. The Cardinals used the passing of quarterback Dean May, the eiu slve running of tailback Greg (See BEARCATS, Page J-jo 43-10: McKinley defense, which handcuffed Moeller so convincingly in the Division I state championship game last year, showed of doing so again in the first quarter.

"This was no revenge," Moell-er's rookie coach, Steve Klonne, insisted. Moeller lost to McKinley, 13-0, in last year's final game.

Moeller enjoyed such a luxury in this game that all 80 players who dressed also played. The night primarily belonged to the offense and senior Hiawatha Francisco stole much of the limelight. The tailback scored two touchdowns and rushed for 197 yards on 17 carries.

His most exciting run and the one that certainly had to demoralize McKinley was a 68-yard romp that was the first play from scrimmage following McKinley's only touchdown.

and they kick the heck out of you." But the game meant a little more to tailback Hiawatha Francisco, who became Moeller's second all-time rusher with 197 yards on 17 carries and two touchdowns. "It meant a lot because they came out and played us with a little momentum from the state game," Francisco said. "But with a good line in front of us, we took it to them. We really wanted to win this for last year's seniors." THIS GAME was billed as a rematch of the state championship game, but the temperature was nowhere near as cold and neither was the Moeller of fense. against particular opponents.

"I think they'd be foolish not to do something like that," LeClair said of the Campbell strategy. Besides, the Bengals have treated a couple of average backs like Campbell this preseason. Both Detroit and Washington ran well against Cincinnati in the preseason, and were particularly effective getting outside. "It's very important that our defensive line holds Its ground up front," said Gregg. "We haven't been playing good up front," Edwards said.

The problem on sweeps has been handling combination blocks, which the Oilers also use. The guard slides over to take the defensive end and the tackle slips out and blocks the outside linebacker. What ends Ross' Browner and Edwards have to do is hold up those tackles. "YOU JUST have to be quick and not let that tackle get around you to get that linebacker," Edwards said. "We Just haven't been doing a good Job keeping the offensive linemen off our linebackers." Linebacker Reggie Williams, who said he never plays well in the preseason and this year was no exception, thinks the Juices will flow with the real thing.

"The theory is that you as a team can't turn it off and turn it on," he said. "But that's only a theory." "You can't compare preseason with league games," said LeClair, who doesn't feel the Campbell dominance was as evident last year as in previous seasons. In the second game, the Bengals were ahead, 34-7, before Houston closed the final gap to a more respectable 34-21 count And the first game, in which Campbell gained 182 yards?

TAXI SQUAD: For Cincinnati CB Louis Breed-' -en, NT Emanuel Weaver, OT Ray Wagner and WR Dan Plater. Kp C'? -J'-' BY MIKE DODD Enquirer Reporter For the better part of his four years in the National Football League, Houston Oilers running back Earl Campbell has been the one-man answer to the question "Who Dey?" As they open their 15th season before a sellout crowd at Riverfront Stadium today (1 p.m., no local TV, WKRC radio), the Cincinnati Bengals hope to make the record-setting back wonder "What Da. Only once in his seven starts against the Bengals has Campbell been held to fewer than 100 yards rushing, and that caii.e last year when he left the game in the second quarter with a pulled hamstring and 74 yards. While the Oilers have talked about diversifying their offense and passing more this year, the Bengals believe past history will overrule future philosophy for the most part this afternoon. "THEY'LL PROBABLY line up In the I formation and run him all day," said linebacker Jim LeClair.

"They'll probably move Tim Wilson from tight end and line him up back there, too. "But it doesn't matter what they do. It all comes down to who plays best." "We're looking for Earl Campbell," said Eddie Edwards. going to go with him and try to drive the ball down our throats. He'll probably get the ball 35 times." In his seven appearances against the Bengals, Campbell has averaged a phenomenal 5.4 yards per rushing attempt, almost a full yard more than his career average.

Houston's Eddie Biles certainly wantc to open up his offense this year, and Bengals coach Forrest Gregg said he expects some more passing than in the past, but coaches have a tendency to go back to things that have worked HOUSTON CINCINNATI OFFENSE OFFENSE 80 Harold Bailey WR 80 Cris CoWnsworth WR 62 John Schuhmacher LT 78 Anthony Muno CT 63 Mike Munchak LG 62 Dave Lapham LG 58 David Carter 60 Blake Moore 60 Ed Fisher RG 65 AAax Montoya RG 76 Morris Towns RT 77 Mike Wilson RT. 87 Dave Casper TE 89 Dan Ross TE 84 Mike Holston WR 85 Isaac Curtis WR" 14 Gifford Nielsen OB 14 Ken Anderson QBT 40 Donnie Craft RB 40 Charles Alexander RB 34-Earl Campbel FB 46 Pete Johnson FB DEFENSE DEFENSE -1 71 Ken Kennard LE 73 Eddie Edwards LE- 67-MikeStensrud NT 75 WHson WWttey NT 75 Jesse Baker RE 79 Ross Browner RE 52 Robert Brazile "H.B 53 Bo Harris OLB -51 Ted Thompson ILB 55 Jim LeClair I.B 50 DarylHunt ILB 50 Glenn Cameron ILB 53 Avon Riley OLB 57 Reggie Williams OLB I 27 Greg Stemrk CB 44 Ray Griffin CB Wilson CB 13 Ken Riley CB" 36 Carter Hartwig SS 26 Bobby Kemp SS" 37 Mike Reinfeldt FS 27 Byan Hicks FS.
