Friday, September 23, 1988 HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS College Grid Wars to Flame Saturday Alabama and Southern California Meet in. Earlly Season Game H.Y HARRY GKAYSON Sports Eilllor, NKA Service. As intercollegiate football warfare flames anew, a dozen or more of thu nation's top-ranking teams become immediately concerned with staying in the race for national honors. Washington travels to MinneapoliH jo engage Minnesota in what perhaps is Ihe most important game of September 24. Even dour Bernie Bierman is reported satisfied with the way the Minnesota outfit has come to hand, which is one reason why 1 am picking Ihe Golden Gophers lo edge the Huskies as they did in Seattle two years ago. Minnesota was nosed out twice last term—by Nebraska and Notre Dame— which is two more than the Vikings ar« accustomed lo losing. The position is liltcly to pay for it this trip, for BiHi-man has a typical Minnesota line behind which Matty Christiansen, Larry Buhler. and others run rapidly and hit savagely. The entire left side of Washington's first string line of 19S7 was swept away by graduation, but the Purple and Gold freshmen were not scored on and Jimmy Phelan has phenomena performers in Al Culver, fullback, am Stove Slivinski, gianl end. Dean McAdams, a 190-pound halfback, has averaged 50 yards in punting in early .scrimmages. If Minnesota is looking for a warm- up, it will get one right under the g\m Southern California Gels Two Ulg (James Southern California addicls gel Ihe biggest dose of early season major sluff. Having sliced their working squad to a mere half hundred, Howard Harding Jones and Southern California are ready for Alabama's invasion of Los Angeles' huge Memorial Coliseum. The Trojan/; should prevail in a spectacular engagement. As though that wasn't enough for football-hungry people of one locality for one week-end, U. C. L. A. tackles Iowa in ihe famous Pasadena Rose Bowl on Friday night, September 23. While the Hawkeyes have Nike Kinnick, one of the country's butler backs, the Bruins possess too much manpower and ihe great negro performers, Kenny Washington and Woodrow Wilson Strode. Southern California appears mightier than it has been since 1932, but Alabama didn't stub its loc in California until an undermanned Crimson Tide was repulsed by a super-California array in the Rose Bowl last New Year's Day. Jones, (he old Yale man, has Amby Schindler and Grcnville Lindsdell op- crating behind a large and mobile forward wall. But, while Sandy Sanford, place-kicking Alabama end, fractured an ankle on the eve of his club's departure for the battle-ground, Frank Thomas has Herky Mosely and Charley Holm leading the atlack, and the Tus- caioosa lads have a habit of sinking back. Louisiana State Loaded for Ole Miss ami Others Sam Chapman, California's All- America halfback and kicker of 1937, is now an outfielder with the Philadelphia Athletics. The Golden Bears lost a number of other luminaries, including the bulky blocking quarterback, John Meek, but still have Vic Bottari and so many more that Saint Mary's should he no great problem at Berkeley. While Wt'.st Virginia is no pushover, 1 Pittsburgh, with Ihe finest set of backs • in the land and exceptionally fine ends, I .should win handily al Pill Stadium. Graduation losl Louisiana Slate only one first-string back, the redoubtable Pinky Rhom, and Bernie Moore has a line two-deep with veterans. Mississippi, which journeys lo Baton Rouge with its new coach, Harry Mehre, will find the Tigers loaded for a real Rose Bowl bid. While Kansas is coming up in the Rig Six, Dana X. Bible has had a year lo work at football-minded Texas, which is as good a reason as any for making the Longhorns the choice at Lawrence. Purdue Will Do Well to Scrape By Detroit Purdue will do well to scrape by De- Iroil al Lafayette. While IHinoi. should win at Champaign, Ohio University can be depended upon to stir up some trouble. Idaho, with 19 veterans on hand again .should nose oul Oregon Slate al Corvallis. Arkansas, hit hard by gradualion will have to hustle to down Oklahoma A. and M. at FayeUeville. Although North Carolina is rebuilding, il should have enough to shade Wake Forest at Chapel Hill, and North Carolina Stale should squeeze by Davidson in Ihe cool of the eve at Charlolle. Other major schools stick to the old opening pushover system . . . because so many of ihe belter teams are bowled over before the boys are warmed up. But thai is exaclly why Minnesota, Washington, Southern California, Alabama, California, and sonic more discarded Ihe pushover plan. If you're going lo have your ears pinned back at the very start, why not be upset by someone worthwhile? m t m» 1'U'a.sanl Vacation EVAN£TON, 111.—Bob Voights and Bob Daly, Northwestern tackle and end respectively, worked their way across the Atlantic on a freighter this .summer to tour England and the Con- linenl on bicycles.

Par for Cupid on Any Course to make the average coach tear his hair, and yet year after year they come up with something just about as good. Since 1933, Minnesota has won the Big Ten championship or shared it every fall. Except for Andy. Uram at left halfback this fall's squad is just as fast as the one of a year ago. ll has just as much reserve strength and il is almost as rugged. Spiril and leadership is improved. This year's squad is stronger at center than last yeai. equally as strong at the guards, fackles,. arid' ends, a lillle weaker/at' both halves; stronger at fullback; and just as good i:l quarterback. Minnesota easily may be on another long undefeated run. //v -me TEAM.. . Again MINNEAPOLIS-All good things must end, they s;.-y, and it's probably true—except at the University of Minnesota.

Prescott.. ; The Panthers upset a strong' team from Bossier City, La., last Friday night by defeating them 18-12. After this victory the spirit of the Magnolia boys is very high and they are working hard to make this season a successful one. The backfield is fairly strong with two seasoned players and two hew boys but the line has many difficulties to.iron out as it is composed mostly of new boys. Charles Dunn, 185 Ib. tackle of last season reported for practice Thursday. This should slrengthen the learn considerably. Under the direction of Lewis Scholl new coach, the Magnolia team is playing an entirely different brand of ball from that they have used for the last low seasons. The Panther bunch features a spectacular backfield led bv Captain "Red" Jones, who punts and Passes. Goss, last week's hero, and Hudson take care of the ball carrying duties, while Wilson handles the blocking dunes with Captain Jones DARTMOUTH American League Clubs New York Boston Cleveland .
