M K-State now No. 11 UTEP tops new Bottom Ten list By STEVE HARVEY Just how bad is Texas of El Paso, anyway? That question may be answered Saturday when the down-in- the dumps Miners play Air Force in an early season test of weakness. The Miners, 1-10 in 1977, lost to North Texas State, 49-0, last Saturday in their opener to jump to No. 1 in the Bottom Ten. Air Force was 28-1 last year. Kansas State, ranked first in the Bottom Ten last week, looked strong in practice and was moved back to No. 11. Utah State, following the example of many American baseball players, emigrated to Japan where it defeated Idaho State, 10-0. The college All- Stars continued their holdout. CRUMMY GAME OF THE WEEK: Virginia vs. Wake Forest. ROUT OF THE WEEK: Penn State vs. Rutgers. SPECIAL CITATION: Mississippi State, which recently had to forfeit 19 games dating back to 1975 for using an ineligible player, opened with a 28-0 win over West Texas State. It's too soon to tell whether the school will have to forfeit that victory also. School, 1978 record 1. UTEP (0-1) 2. Cornell (0-0) 3. Wake Porest (0-0) 4. Northwestern (0-0) 5. Virginia (0-0) 6.

He still feels his team will make it to the Orange Bowl, if the players don't worry too much over final exams. Right now, however, St. Louis is atop the Bottom Ten rankings. The Cards displaced New Orleans, which was rated No. 1 last week due to computer error. Actually, as everyone knows, the Saints are favored to win the NFC title again. O.J. Simpson, obtained by No. 4 San Francisco, in exchange for numerous draft choices (as well as the man who does the Avis commercial), fumbled twice to spark the 49ers' opening game loss. Meanwhile Delvin Williams, who was traded away by San Francisco, after it Acquired Simpson, was held to 119 yards and 11 carries for Miami. CRUMMY GAME OF THE WEEK: Detroit vs. Tampa Bay. SPECIAL CITATION: New Orleans' second string offensive tackle Mark Meseroll, a free agent, previously was a starter for the Spinnaker II Bar in Panama City, Fla., where his position was nightbartend- er.

Lion Coach Tommy Hudspeth publicly chastised Hoopes, saying he "choked completely" and was responsible for the loss. According to the grievance, filed through the NFL Players' Association, Hudspeth later told Hoopes he was forced to cut Hoopes because "too much pressure" had been applied by the coach's statements. being taken. \ Stingley, 26, was injured Aug. 12 during a game with th'ie Oakland Raiders.
