THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, October 31, 1961 Missouri Practice Declared Off Limits By BOB POOS COLUMBIA. Mo. (AP)-Missouri University has abandoned its long-established custom of open football practice sessions because of information leaks that could prove valuable to opponents and gamblers. Coach Dan Devine, who announced the ruling, emphasized that most of the leaks were by loyal Mizzou rooters and were not intended to do the team harm. But some, he said, were not. He said he had tried to keep secret last week the fact that star halfback Norm Beal suffered a practice injury which could keep him out of Saturday's game with Nebraska. Devine said he learned this information was passed by a loyal alumnus who heard it at a practice session, went home to another Missouri town and talked about it. It soon spread statewide and even to Nebraska, where it was published. But another incident, which oc- curred last year, was not so innocent. The student manager of the Tigers heard a Missouri student giving detailed information on a Friday night to the coach of the next day's opposition on what had ranspired during the week's practice. This student was a transfer from the other school. And said Devine, "we know that gamblers all over the country pay kids to give them information they think will be valuable in helping them set up point spreads. "It's part of our job to protect this information and not let it be available to someone who'll use it the wrong way." The Tiger coach noted that most other schools have always utilized secrecy in practice. "This has been building up for a long time here. We'd like to go on the other way but I figure we must do this in self-defense." Devine also said a factor in hi? decision was that a good part oi practice involves criticism of a player's work in previous games "When you've got a lot of people ooking on I don't think it's fair 'or a boy to be criticised. Only the coaches and other players should hear it." Observers noted that in the Ne- araska game, Missouri playe< without the services of Beal as lad been predicted. Mizzou won 10-0 but that was below the foot ball card point spread. "Devine said he believed most o the leaked information involvet squad condition. "But I'm no naive enough to think that som strategical dope hasn't been passed on." He said the team will now prac tice inside a wire fenced enclo sure with the gates locked. Persons looking through the fence will be asked, pob'tely, to move on. Eventually, a canvass covering will probably be put up around the fence. Missouri faces Colorado Saturday in a game which will go far in deciding the Big Eight Conference championship in a contest between two undefeated teams. Spartans Lead 2 Big 8 Teams In Top Ten By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer Michigan State and Mississippi, the nation's top two college football powers, tackle tough tests Saturday against opponents. The Sartans, upset-minded ranked first Monday for the third week in succession, place their 5-0 record on the line in a Big Ten conference clash with resurgent Minnesota, last year's national champions Battle Of Dodds Coming Up Again ATLANTA (AP) - Chapter Two of the Bobby Dodd father and son story comes next Saturday when Florida and Georgia Tech meet here in a Southeastern Conference football game. The younger Dodd went one up last year when he helped lead Florida to an 18-17 upset of his father's Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. 3obby Dodd Jr., who shares the quarterback job with 138-pound Larry Libertore, completed a 32-yard pass in the closing minutes as Florida drove for the winning touchdown. Dodd drove the Gators to the Tech three, and Libertore took them in for the score. The script is about the same for the second act of the father- son drama. Tech is favored as it was last year. But there is an important difference. Florida relished the underdog role in ^1960 and knocked off both LSU and Tech en route to an 8-2 selsoii jnd a Gator Bowl victory over Baylor. This year, weakened by injuries to key personnel, Florida seems to have lost the upset touch. The Gators played well but lost to Rice 19-10, and last Saturday LSU flattened them 23-0. Coach Dodd concedes he has a better team now than he believed possible two months ago. Tech vaulted to the No. 3 spot in The Associated Press top 10 after routing Southern California and Rice, tumbled after losing to LSU, and then fought its way back to its current No. 7 listing with successive triumphs over Duke, Auburn and Tulane Steers Drop Larry Swift KANSAS CITY (AP)-Larry Swift, 6-5 rookie from Kirksville State, has been dropped from the Kansas City Steers' squad in the BOBBY DODD SR.

The Rebels, winners of six in a row in an undefeated campaign in which they've scored 204 points ! to 13 for their foes, tangle with sixth-ranked Louisiana State Un- .versity in a Southeastern Conference matchup Saturday night Michigan State, also overpowering all opposition with 131 points while giving up only 10, retained the No. 1 spot in the latest ratings of The Associated Press' 47-man committee of sports writers and sports casters. The Spartans, 35-0 conquerors of Indiana last Saturday, polled 31 first-place votes to eight for the Rebels, who walloped Vanderbilt 47-0 in their latest game. On a point basis, Michigan State received 437 to 407 for Mississippi. The top teams, with first-place votes in parentheses, points figured on a 10, 9, 8, 7, etc. basis: 'Skins Lose Game, Find Quarterback WASHINGTON (AP)-The Redskins lost another game Sunday —their seventh this year and 15th in a row over two seasons—but they may have gained a quarterback. "Norman Snead played a great game," said Washington Coach Bill McPeak today, 'and it came at a crucial point in his career." The 6-foot-4 rookie from Wake Forest completed 21 of 31 passes for 296 yards and two touchdowns although the Redskins' lost 27-24 in the final minute to the Philadelphia Eagles, defending Na> tional Football League champions Snead will be r the starting quar terback again next Sunday when the Redskins play the defensively strong New York Giants at Yan kee Stadium. McPeak, also a rookie as heai coach, has gambled on Snead as his quarterback. He swapped of Ralph Guglielmi, 1960 regular a the spot, just before the season Hoppmann Setting New Records For Iowa State By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Iowa State's Dave Hoppmann, utilizing the effective blocking of Dan Celoni, Paul Sullivan, and a host of other hard-nosed single- wing fundamentalists, appears well en route to rewriting the Cyclone record book. A year ago as a sophomore, the 6-1, 178 pound tailback set three Iowa State records while leading the Big Eight Conference rushers. He topped the league with 844 yards rushing and a total offense of 1,058 yards. His 1960 school records: most yards gained rushing in one game, 224 against Detroit; most yards mshing one season, 844; and most total offense in one game, 32(1 yards against Detroit. Last Saturday he yards in '25 carries gained 271 against K- State to break his one game record. Hoppmann's performance pushed his total rushing in 6 games to 720 yards on 158 carries. Bill Thornton of Nebraska trails with 453 yards on 81 carries. Hoppmann is second among league passers with 19 completions out of 43 attempts for 344 yards. This gives him a total offense of 1,064 yards, 6 yards more than he compiled to lead the conference in 1960. Gale Weidner of Colorado continues as the No. 1 passer. He has completed 31 of 75 for 437 yards. Larry Montre of Iowa State tops the pass receivers with 10 receptions for 210 yards. Dennis Cla ridge of Nebraska has the best punting average, 42.3 yards on 23 punts. The leading punt returner is Claude Crab of Colorado. He has returned 5 for an average of 12.8 yards. Jerry Hillebrand of Colorado is the No. 1 scorer with two touchdowns, 7 conversions and three field goals for 28 points. Kansas leads in total offense for 6 games with 1,554 yards but Colorado with 1,347 in 5 games has the best average, 269.4 yards. Missouri is No. 1 on total defense. The Tigers have yielded only 1,020 yards in 6 games. The Steers will go into their league opener in San Francisco Wednesday night with 11 players One more player must be cut off by Dec. 1.

Most teams figure on taking several seasons to develop a quarterback, working him gradually into the lineup. But McPeak decided the Redskins were desperate. He is bringing Snead along in a crash program. No Doubt About It, Texas' Tough By JACK CLARY Associated Press Sports Writer It is pretty hard not to believe in this current Texas football team. It has proven itself. The Longhorns have won their two toughest games of the season Coach Dan Devine of Missouri Snead, a quietly confident type, i -and on successive Saturdays, heard boos for the first time First they battered Southwest when Washington was shut out for Conference toughie Arkansas 33-7 the second consecutive week in a j and last week beat Rice 34-7. 24-0 defeat by St. Louis. The Cardinal linemen dumped Snead seven times trying to pass and he completed only 7 of 17 passes. The figures are more convincing: No. 2 ranking nationally, the nation's best over-all offense and j top rushing offense: fifth best i 51.2 point average for the first two weeks of the 1961-G2 season. If the Cardinals' rough treat- £CO ring team; and ninth in total ment upset the lanky quarterback - it didn't show against the Eagles. He had the poise of a veteran.

Sharmaii's Jets Win Home Game LOS ANGELES (AP)-The Los Angeles Jets made ther American Basketball League home debut with a 119-116 victory over the Chicago Majors Monday night. "It was a mighty fine homecoming, I think," said player- coach Bill Sharman, for years a star with the Boston Celtics of the rival National Basketball Association. There were seven 3-point field goals scored from beyond the 25- foot circle under the new ABL scoring rule. Kelley Coleman of the Majors scored two of them. Sharman connected on a 40-foot set shot that put the Jets ahead 61-59 at halftime, and they never trailed after that, although the Majors tied the count at 104-104.
