2— E THE REfGISTlR-NBWS — WT- VERNON, ILLINOIS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1968 "Set Lamonita!" Is Strategy Of Jets By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer | NEW YORK (AP) - "Get Lamonica." { That, says Gerry Philbin. is j the best defense against the Oakland Raiders' passing attack. The New York Jets, for whom Philbin plays a brilliant defensive end, must contend with that attack Sunday in the American Football League championship game, and if they can stop it, they could stop Oakland. "Daryle Lamonica is the center of the attack, and he devastated Kansas City with five touchdown passes last Sunday in the Western Division playoff. "If we get to Lamonica early, then we could save what could be a long game for us," said Philbin, who was named to the week. "We've got to keep on his back. We have to get to him because when he's hot, he's hot. "Even if you can't tackle him and throw him for a loss, you can get your hands in his face. If he has to throw over your hands, he's very likely going to throw a bad pass." Lamonica didn't throw too many bad passes six weeks ago when he completed 21 of 34 against the Jets for 311 yards and four touchdowns. "He had a pretty good day, but I think we put pressure on him," Philbin recalled. "We got to him twice, and we made him scramble a few times. Anyone is less effective if he has to run around while he's trying to see his receivers. "But he throws so quick you WANTED REAL ESTATE LISTINGS We have buyers for TOUT home at a fair price.

Le've given him some good shots in the past—nothing dirty but just hard—and he just bounces right back. You can't rattle him mentally either." What the whole thing comes down to is how well the Oakland offensive line and the New York defensive line does against each oilier. The Jets dumped the opposing quarterback 43 times this season, third best in the league, while the Raiders have permitted Hie opposition to get to their quarterback 29 times, fourth in the league "I'd have to say they have one of the best pass protections in the Lestern Division," said Philbin, a 6-foot-2, 245-pounder now in his fifth pro season. "In the Kansas City game they looked even better than I thought. They looked super. I think Kansas City got to Lamonica only once. You have to do better than that." pimiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiwiiiiiiinniimiiiiiiiiiiiH § AT CENTRALIA i | Yesterday's Results i Jacksonville 70, Homewood Flossmoor 66 I Champaign Central 92, Nashville 57 p New Trier 71, Freeport 45 § Benton 69, Princeton 66 | Thornton 93, Salem 38 1 Belleville West 69, Stephen Decatur 60. | Centralia 95, York Elmhurst 75 | Peoria Spalding 75, Pittsfield 62 BOWLING ALIBI MIXED LEAGUE High Series: Dallas Cluck 517; Lyle Snyder 504; Bill Tolley 483; Pat Kelton 480; Inez Williamson 429; Edna ChambUss 423.

"No Wholesale Changes" Colts Clad For 2nd Shot At Cleveland By GORDON BEARD Associated Press Sports Writer BALTIMORE (AP) — proper execution of proyen plays will outweigh surprise gimmickry in Sunday's National Football League championship game, says Coach Don Sbula of the Baltimore Colts. "Teams don't get this far without doing some things right," Shula said of his Cotls and their opponents, the Cleveland Browns. "You don't throw out the things you can do ahd use gimmick stuff. "If anything new is done, it will be a wrinkle here and there on offense or defense. But there won't be any wholesale changes." A breakdown of Baltimore basics helped contribute to Cleveland's 30-20 victory in a regular season game between the two teams. It was Baltimore's only loss in 15 games. "We're happy for the opportunity to play Cleveland again," Shula said. "We hope to play a lot better than we did in the first game, and execute better." Leroy Kelly of Cleveland, the NLF's ground-gaining champ, gained 130 yards in the regular season game and scored two touchdowns. Asked if Kelly was Baltimore's , chief concern for Sund ay's contest in Cleveland, Shula agreed and then elaborated; "Leroy Kelly, the Browns' defense, the Browns' offense, and the whole Cleveland football team." In Thursday's practice, the Colts rehearsed their defensive alignments for the Browns, including ways to disguise the blitz. "The defenses of the two teams are quite similar," Shula said, "The Browns don't blitz much, but rather use it as a mixer." Cleveland's front four apparently does the rushing job adequately without help from the blitz, since the Browns' secondary led the league with 32 inter, ceptions. Shula had high praise for Cleveland linebackers J i m Houston, Bob Matheson and Dale Lindsey, crediting them 'Pistol Pete' Tops Scoters NEW YORK (AP) — Pistol Pete Maravich of Louisiana State has widened his lead over Calvin Murphy of Niagara "in the major college basketball individual scoring race.

The teams tied 20-20. After the game, Allen said the muddy field conditions were the worst he'd ever seen. Reeves called the comments un-neeessary and ill-advised. "But we heard rumors in training camp," said Roman Gabriel, the No. 1 quarterback of the Rams under Allen. "We heard rumors that George Allen would be fired 1 if we didn't win it all this year," Gabriel said. "And those rumors popped up more often as the season progressed. "Before our last ball game with the Baltimore Colts, Coach Allen said he wouldn't be back next year," said offensive guard and co-captann Joe Scribelli. Allen seems to always have Allen's deals earned him the name of The Trader and in 1966 the Rams were 8-6, their best record in eight years. The following season Los An-| geles was 11-1-2, won the Coast' al Division title and, after a 28-7 loss to Green Bay for the Western Division crown, thrashed Cleveland' 30-6 in the Playoff Bowl. This year the Rams were hit by injury and illness but wound up 10-3-1, losing their last two games—to Chicago 17-16 and to Baltimore 28-24. Allen, a native of Detroit, played football at Marquette in 1944. He began his pro coaching career with the Rams in 1957 after nine years of college coaching at Morningside in Iowa and Whittier In California. M. D.

All systems are "go" as the bowl season is about to blast off with 11 games in the next six days, most of them to be televised somewhere or other. However, the University of Michigan, which missed out on a trip to the Rose Bowl, got its licks in Thursday night by winning the Coach Bowl. The Wolverines topped Glenn "Bo" Schembechler of Miami, Ohio, to succeed Chalmers "Bump" Elliott as head coach, The Associated Press learned. Elliott will move up to associate athletic dl- rector. In six seasons at Miami, Sohembechler's teams won 40 games, lost IT and tied three. As a student there, he played under Woody Hayes, whose Ohio State team is going to the Rose Bowl, The action on the field begins tonight when Ohio University, unbeaten, untied and ranked l6tn in the nation, meets Richmond's Southern Conference champions in the Tangerine Bowl at Orlando, F2a, Saturday finds Missouri against Alabama in the Gator Next week it's the Peach Bowl Monday, the Blue Bonnet Bowl Tuesday and the Rose, Orange, Cotton and Sugar Bowls Wednesday. A crowd of 68,000 is expected to watch a defensive battle between Missouri and Alabama in the Gator Bowl. 'Bama ranked fifth in total defense and defense against scoring and sev enth in rushing defense. Missouri was eighth in total defense and fifth in pass defense but the Tigers also ranked 32th in rushing offense and 21st in total of. fense. They have an All-American in safety Roger Wehrli, the nation's No. 1 punt returner. The Sun Bowl also could be a defensive struggle in this year of the exploding scoreboard. Although Auburn has a potent aerial duo in Loran Carter and Tim Christian and Arizona has a fine receiver in Ron Gardln, they also rank among the defensive leaders. Arizona finished seventh in total defense and 14th Jn rushing defense while Auburn was eighth in deferring the rush.
