D2 Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 3, 1968 Football Results Gobblers Thrash Seminoles Tyson of Pahokee touchdown pass on the first play of the second quarter interrupted the Gobblers' fireworks. FSU went 80 yards in nine plays for the six points. VPI got back in business when Mike Widrer inter-rented yet. After Lenny Smith Intercepted a pass on his nine and got back to the 12, Edwards streaked up the middle for 88 yards with 7:51 left in the first half. On the ensuing klckoff, Tommy Warren lateralled off to Gary Pajclc, who fumbled as John Ivanac recovered on the scoring with 2:10 left in the game when substitute quarterback Tommy Warren passed 25 yards to Gary Pajclc In the end zone. Pajclc had started the season as the Seminoles' number one quarterback. Virginia Tech parlayed three pass interceptions,, a fumble recovery and one sustained drive into a 31-7 half time lead. To illustrate how suddenly the Gobblers struck, they drove 80 yards in 14 plays for a 32-yard field goal by Jack Slmcsak but need By CLIFF IRAL'8 TALLAHASSEE (AFN) Alert Virginia Tech picked off six Florida State passes and recovered a fumble as the Gobblers routed Florida State 40-22 Saturday night before a crowd of 31,342. It was the most points chalked up against the Seminoles since Auburn beat them 57-21 in the last game of the 1960 season Coach Bill Peterson's first as head coach at FSU. All of the interceptions but one were turned into scores for VPI. ed only nine plays to chalk up their four touchdowns. The field goal came on VPI's first possession in the game and the Gobblers picked up thetr first touchdown before the Seminoles could register on the scoreboard. Ron Davidson intercepted a Cappleman pass Intended for Billy Cox on the FSU 39 and returned It to the 15. Terry Smoot smacked over for the touchdown from the three four plays later. A 34-yard Cappleman to Jim Reserve Nick Del Visclo made the last theft to end Florida State's last possession In the game. Florida State now has a 4-2 record, this setback ending a three-game winning streak. Virginia Tech went over the .500 mark with the victory, at 4-3. Florida State's passing attack accounted for all of the Seminoles' touchdowns but they weren't enough to overcome the opportunities set up by the interceptions and the fumble.

(AP) -John Riggins and Bob Douglass ate up huge chunks of yardage with their slashing running Saturday, leading third-ranked Kansas to a 27-14 victory over Colorado. The Jayhawks, victorious In all seven games this season, In cluding four in the Big Eight for a share of the conference lead with Missouri, had a 27-0 lead before Colorado's Bob Anderson could get the Buffalo offense moving in the fourth quarter. Kansas put tight defensive clamps on Anderson the Big Eight total offense leader who had been averaging 220 yards a game. He didn't get plus yardage until midway through the third quarter. At one point, after 22 plays, Anderson had minus one yard In the middle of the third period. Anderson finished with only 32 yards total offense, his lowest total in his collegiate career. Kansas, meanwhile, ripped through Colorado's defense for 428 yards rushing, with John Riggins gaining 162 of it and Douglass 108. The Jayhawk rushing yardage was the most ever against Colorado, breaking the mark of 421 set by Missouri earlier this season when the Tigers beat the Buffs by the same score. Riggins exploded for 63 yards on the game's third play to set up Bill Bell's 20-yard field goal. Bell later booted a 38-yard field goal, the longest of his career and giving him nine for a Jayhawk school record. A soggy field from a steady light rain kept scoring down, with Kansas losing the ball at Colorado 17 on a pass interception and fumbling it away at the Buff's 16 in the first half. In addition, Colorado fumbled at the Kansas 24 late in the first quarter.

(AP) Sparked by the passing combination of quarterback Terry Bradshaw to flankerback Ken Liberto, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs upset Southern Mississippi 27-20 here Saturday before a stunned homecoming crowd of 15,000. on the Seminole 36 and returned it to the 28. The score came on the third play with Klncald pas sing u yaras to Ken t-awards. If the Seminole thnncht tha Gobblers were striking with extreme suddeness at this point 'they had not seen anything television as a high-school sophomore in Beaver Falls, Pa. "I knew about Unitas, because he was from Pittsburgh, not far from Beaver Falls," said Namath, "but what made me even more interested in the Colts at that time was their tight end, Jim Mustcheller. He came from Beaver Falls." Oddly, a dangerous sideline pass to Mutscheller In the Colts' 2317 sudden-death victory did much to form the Unitas Image. Asked if he had been concerned about an Interception, Unitas replied, "When you know what you're doing, you don't gel Intercepted." And the other day, when Namath was asked if he ever thought aboutsomeday succeeding Unitas as the best quarterback, he replied. "No." Asked why not, he laughed and said, Ilbecause I feel that way now." C3GD i BGIISSESf mi mm Seminole 10.

WEST PALM BEACH 13G9 N. DIXIE HWY. PH. 132-0126 RIVIERA BEACH 2234 BROADWAY PH. 148-0641 , - - ' w -wg (C) New York Times News Service By DAVE ANDERSON NEW YORK - Separated by 10 years and 10 miles, the young challenger and the old champion will stroll onstage in New York today In different arenas. Joe Namath, the mod, shaggy-haired and nurturing a Fu Manchu mustache, his wobbly legs in low-cut white shoes, but gifted with an arm like a lariat, will be at quarterback for the Jets at Shea Stadium. Johnny Unitas, the pro, crew-cut at the age of 35, his sturdy legs in black ankle-high shoes, but with an arm as tender as lettuce, will prowl the sidelines for the Baltimore Colts at Yankee Stadium. Unitas once was the best. But this season he has hardly played and the suspicion is that his career is about over. Namath Is only 25, but Ironically his career is In constant jeopardy. Another whack on either of his knees and he might hobble off the field, never to return. But of all the quarterbacks In pro football, he is the one most likely to succeed Unitas in the throne room. Coincidentally, In their formative seasons, Weeb Ewbank coached each one, although under somewhat different circumstances. Unitas joined the Colts as a sandlot performer who had been cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Namath Joined the Jets as a celebrity with a $400,000 contract. "But as young quarterbacks they were very comparable," Ewbank was saying the other day before a Jet practice. "I remember when John was young, people used to ask me to compare him to Otto Graham because I had been with Otto at Cleveland. I used to say, 'give John an opportunity to play a few seasons and his record will speak for itself.' It'll be the same way with Joe. He's in only his fourth season, but already he's put together an amazing record. Give him a few more seasons and he'll have a record as good as anybody." Here Is Unitas' record through his first fou seasons (1956-59) In the National Football League and Namath's midway In his LONG-HAIRED JOE NAMATH UNLEASHES A PASS . . .He's ready to lead Jets Against Bills " NAVY'S Middies Humbled By Irish (O N.Y.TImes Newsservice PHILADELPHIA Before a turnout of 63,738 fans attracted by name appeal rather than game appeal, twice-beaten Notre Dame did the expected Saturday by humbling victory-starved Navy, 45-14. The crowd, sitting under sunlit skies at John F. Kennedy Sta dium, saw the Fighting Irish move into the lead In its first offensive sequence and domlnat ed matters the rest of the way. Navy kept the issue within control for one half, thanks to some fine passing by Mike McNallen and some fine ground play by junior Dan Pike. But with the score 24 to 14 at the intermission, the Middles ran out of fuel and were held scoreless for the rest of the day. In the meantime, such well- known Notre Dame stalwarts as Terry Hanratty, the sharp shoot ing tosser, and Jim Seymour, the pass grabbing end, went out about the business of completing the expected rout. Hanratty and Seymour emerg ed with some more Impressive statistics. The wiry Notre Dame signal caller completed 14 aer ials In 21 attempts for 149 yards and ran the ball nine times for 54 yards. Seymour, who seemed to have no difficulty in shaking loose from the Middles defens es, snared eight passes for 78 yards. The two Irish stars were In volved In three touchdowns, only one of which, however, resulted from an aerial (11 yards). In the first period, Seymour tallied on an unusual play when he scooped up a fumble by Bob Gladleux after that Notre Dame back had carried about 9 yards to the goalllne. Hanratty's solo effort as a scorer came early In the second chapter when he rushed through the left side on a keep fron1 3 yards, giving the mid-westerners a 23-to-6 edge. Gladleux racked up 117 yards in 18 carries as he also account ed for two touchdowns. Ron Dushney, partial to finding holes in Navy's middle, emerged with 66 yards in 16 plays. Ara Parseglan, the righting Irish's competent head coach, because of confidence or per haps Just good public relations, elected to send in his reserves with 10 minutes left to play. Even they experienced little dif ficulty in marching to the end zone the first time they gained possession. Inserted with the score, 37-14, the replacements paraded 54 yards In a dozen plays. Joe Thelsman, the 170-pound sopho more quarterback who seems destined to inherit Hanratty's spot next season, masterminded the drive. The 6-foot, 170-pounder engi neered three keeps during the advance, two of which were key factors In the march.

Unitas also had fewer Interceptions, but Ewbank recalled that "John had an Interception problem, too. The thing about both of them is that they're so good, they thought they could complete anything. I remember I once brought Otto Graham to training camp for him to criticize John In the workouts. One time John completed a pass over the middle and Otto told him, 'you hit that one, but I wouldn't have thrown it Into that crowd.' Basically, they're duplicates." Unitas' motion apparently has shortly after the third period began as quarterback Harry Gon-so lnspersed his passes with strong runs by Isenbarger and fullback Tom Fleming to move Indiana to the eight. Gonso then hit Al Gage for an eight-yard score. Wisconsin got Its first break when Carl Winfrey recovered Isenbarger's fumble on the Indiana 17. Randy Marks capped the six-play scoring march with a two-yard dash. Indiana's winning TD came on a 32-yard runback with an Intercepted pass by Jim Snl-adeckl.

"John always followed through with the back of his hands pointed Inward," Ewbank said, "like a pitcher throwing a screwball. I thought he'd have arm trouble sooner, but Joe's motion Is straight away. Another member of the Jets, Johnny Sample, a cornerback on the defensive unit, was a teammate of Unitas a decade ago. "The thing that always impressed me about John was his control of the game," Sample said. "No matter what the score was, he was going to do something to get the ball Into the end zone. He never got panicky. He did the things he had to do and he thought ahead. He d call a play In the first quarter that he knew wouldn't gain much yardage, but In the last quarter, he'd come back with a play that looked like the earlier play, but it was different enough for a big gain." Regarding Interceptions, Sample had a theory that perhaps only a defensive back could realize and appreciate. "John threw a smarter pass than Joe," said Sample. "He was able to throw a pass so that if his receiver couldn't get It, the defensive back couldn't get it, either. But Joe has a quicker arm than John and a stronger one. If Joe keeps developing, he'll be as great as John was. In our game In Houston two weeks ago, when he took the offensive 80 yards in the last four minutes to win, he looked like John did in the sudden-death championship game here in 1958 against the Giants." Namath saw that game on Colgate Victor HAMILTON, N.Y.

Minnesota sophomore halfback Barry Mayer, who scored on a 60-yard run in the first period, gained 179 yards rushing and tied the Gopher one-game rushing record set in 1951 against Iowa by Paul Glel. The victory was the first by Iowa in Memorial Stadium since 1958 and gave both teams 3-4 over-all and 2-2 Big Ten records. Lawrence's three second half touchdowns brought Iowa from a 20-14 half time deficit. The Gophers had taken a 20-7 lead In the second period on Jim Carter's one-yard plunge and an 11-yard touchdown pass from Ray Stephens to Ray Parson. But the running of Lawrence, fullback Tim Sullivan and tall-back Eddie Podolak, who scored Iowa's other touchdown on a three-yard run, dominated the Gophers until the final minute when Stephens plunged three yards for the last Minnesota touchdown and Carter ran over the two-point conversion. low 7 7 7 14 ,15 Minnesota 7 1.1 0 828 Iowa Lawrence 1 run (Melendez kick) Minn Maver 60 run (Nvgren kirk) Minn Parson 11 pass (rom Stephens (kirk tailed) Minn Carter 1 run (Nvgren klckl Iowa Podolak 3 run (Melendez kick) Iowa Lawrence 4 run (Melendez kick) Iowa Lawrence 9 run (Melendez kick) Iowa Lawrence I run (Melendez kick) Minn Stephens 3 run (Carter run) A 57.703.

Wisconsin had two more chances to break its 17-game winless streak, but field goal tries by James Johnson and Ryan missed their mark. Johnson missed three other field goal attempts and had a fourth blocked. After a scoreless first period, Indiana took over on the Badgers' 23 on a fumble.
