On Kansas basketball KSU students producing TV show ... some sports shorts from the sideline while wondering how many Big Eight teams will receive bowl bids next Saturday ... A television documentary on Kansas basketball is being produced by three radio and television students at Kansas State University. The 30-minute documentary will investigate why Kansas basketball is getting "better every year." Head coaches from KU, K-State, Wichita State, Fort Hays State and Cloud County will be interviewed for the program. The three students who are making all the editorial decisions, including writing, producing and filming, are Kevin Petrehn, Overland Park; Dan Lindquist, Waterville, and Margaret Schartz, Cimarron. All are K-State seniors. The video tape will be offered to public television stations in Kansas for use at the start of the 1981-82 college basketball season. * 6 * They said it: Reggie Rucker, wide receiver of the Cleveland Browns, on 0. J. Simpson's latest Hertz commercial: "What I want to know is, if this guy can fly, why does he need to rent a car." Swen Nater, center for the San Diego Clippers, on hard play in the NBA: "Sam Lacey (formerly of the Kansas City Kings) says I'm a dirty player, By Harold Bechard Sports Editor but I tell him I take a lot of showers." Larry Lacewell, football coach at Arkansas State, whose team has played five of its last six games in the rain, commeting on a report that the Arabs have taken a day off to pray for rain: "If they really want rain, they'll schedule our football team for a visit." * A * The 67 Division 1-A football games last weekend produced 351.9 passing yards per game (both teams combined) — an all-time high, breaking the record of 348.6 on Nov. 22, 1969. It was the third straight week that passing yardage exceeded rushing. -tr * * Which Division 1-A school has played the toughest football schedule so far this season? You're correct if you picked Penn State. The Nittany Lions' opponents have a combined record of 37-21-1 against 1-A opponents when not playing Penn State. That's a percentage of .679. Behind the Lions came Temple, Boston College and California. Nebraska (.616) and Kansas State (.6154) are sixth and seventh on the list, Oklahoma (.5966) is llth, Colorado (.592) 14th, Iowa State (.565) 21st and Wichita State (.563) 23rd. vy v^ ^f The talk at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence Saturday was that Kansas is a strong candidate for the Peach, Independence or Holiday Bowl. There weren't any bowl scouts at the Kansas- Colorado game, but KU athletic director Bob Marcum said there will be several in attendance this Saturday when the Jayhawks battle Missouri. Kansas sports information director Sid Wilson said that the Peach Bowl was looking for a strong area team to meet the third-place finisher in the Big Eight Conference. So look for either Kansas or Missouri to play a Southeastern Conference team in the bowl game in Atlanta, Ga. Kansas recruiting coordinator Dick Purdy says the 1981 crop of high school football players is the best in the state since 1972. That was the year the Jayhawks signed such stalwarts as Nolan Cromwell, Laverne Smith, Terry Beeson and Blake Thompson. Western Kansas teams advance to semifinals A trio of unheralded teams from Western Kansas — Hoxie, Norton and Victoria — advanced to the semifinals of the high school football playoffs with victories Saturday night. Hoxie stunned second-ranked and defending state champion Plainville, 21-0, in a Class 3A contest; Norton blanked Pratt, 14-0, in a 4A game; and Victoria knocked off No. 1 ranked Cimmarron, 8-0, in a 2A contest. Two other area teams — Clifton- Clyde and Hillsboro — also advanced in Classes 2A and 3A, respectively. Clifton-Clyde whipped Axtell, 28-6, and Hillsboro edged Belleville, 14-10. But for area Eight-Man teams, Saturday night was a disaster. No. 1 ranked Dorrance was blasted by Argonia, 43-14; third-ranked Waconda East was upset by Midway-Denton, 29-16; and Brewster dropped a 39-19 decision to Fowler. Ransom, however, defeated Cunningham, 36-18. Hoxie, now 10-1, rolled up 262 yards of rushing and held Plainville to 180 yards of total offense in the 3A quarterfinal game at Hoxie. Plainville ended its season with a 9-2 mark. Lance Krannawitter started off the scoring for Hoxie by picking up a Plainville fumble and running it into the end zone. Lea Sealock made it 14-0 at halftime with a four-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Mark Cooper ended the scoring with a six-yard run in the final period. Hoxie quarterback Kevin Ziegler rushed for 102 yards on 12 carries to lead the Indian attack' and also had three punts downed inside the Plainville 10-yard line. Norton continued its amazing season with its victory over Pratt, the third win of the year for the Blue Jays over a Mid-State AA opponent. Jeff McKie gave Norton a 7-0 lead after the first quarter on a three-yard touchdown run and Clark Cox 'caught a nine-yard pass from quarterback John Tacha in the second period. Norton, which will host Wellington this Friday in a 4A semifinal game, has now won eight straight games this season after dropping its first three of the season. Pratt ended its season with a 6-5 mark. Victoria, now 10-1, got the only points it needed against Cimmarron when John Basgall scored on a five-yard run in the second quarter. Quarterback Jeff Miller then ran over the two-point conversion. Cimarron, which ended its season with a 10-1 mark, was held to just 125 total yards by the stingy Victoria defense. Clifton-Clyde, now 7-3, rolled up 334 yards of total offense and 20 first downs to coast to an easy victory over Axtell. Brad Blackwood scored twice for the Blue Jays and quarterback Kejiton LaBlanc ran for one score and passed for another. Hillsboro quarterback William Brenneman hit Kevin Frantz with an 11-yard touchdown pass with 1:07 left in the game to give the Trojans a narrow victory over Belleville. Belleville, which ended its season at 6-5, took a 10-7 halftime lead on a seven-yard run by Pat Damman and a 28- yard field goal by Shawn Hallowell. Hillsboro, now 9-2, got on the scoreboard in the first quarter on a 30-yard pass from david Penner to Jan Schroeder. Fowler overcame a 19-17 deficit after three quarters and scored 22 points in the final period to defeat Brewster. Doug McClaren scored four touchdowns for the winners. Fowler is now 11-0, while Brewster ended its season at 9-2. Quarterback Kevin Zeit scored one touchdown and passed for two more to lead Midway-Denton past Waconda East. Midway is now 10-1, while Waconda East ended its season with the same record. Dorrance and Argonia battled to a 14-14 halftime deadlock before the home-standing Red Raiders exploded for 29 points in the second half to win their 10th game against one defeat. Eric Richardson scored four times for the winners. Ransom exploded for 28 points in the first quarter and never looked back against Cunningham as the Longhorns posed their 10th victory in as many games. Sunday, November 15,1961 - The Salina Journal Page S7 Fort Hays nips Emporia, 16-15 HAYS (UPI) - Fort Hays State scored 16 unanswered points, including a 29-yard field goal by Howard Putter with less than two minutes left, and the Tiger defense foiled a late two-point conversion attempt to give Fort Hays a 16-15 Central States Conference victory over Emporia. Fort Hays ends the regular season 65 overall and 3-4 in the CSIC, while Emporia finishes at 2-8 and 1-6 in the league. Trailing 9-0 at the half, Fort Hays used a 1-yard run by Jerome Lanier late in the third period, and a pair of fourth-period scores — once on a 14- yard pass from Rick Mondt to Phil Brethower and again on Putter's 29- yard field goal — for a 16-9 lead with 2:16 left in the game. Emporia drove back with an 8-yard scoring pass from Pat Cisper to Dow Pridey to make the score 16-15 with 40 seconds left and the Hornets elected to go for the win but Fort Hays held for the win. Emporia got on the Scoreboard first with a 28-yard field goal by Alan Cress and did not score again until the 10:32 mark of the third quarter on a 7-yard pass by Cisper to Jeff Rettinger.
