(AP) -- "In; gome -ways," a Houston writer observed, "Jim Carlen reminds one of the late Vince Lombard], perhaps the greatest dis Ciphnarian Â«i football history "You can't honestly knock his Idealistic. approach, and you have to admire his guts for speaking out." , . Carlen,; entering his third year as football coach at Texas Tech, has shown no reluctance to speak his mind. ' : But aside from a confrontation last year with Tech fans, his vigorous, personalized recruiting program couplec with a hard set of rules attract- ed the most attention. When his unbending guidelines were announced, 'a campus undeiground news paper promptly labled him "Morality Fats." And, says Carlen, "I think a lot of recruiters from other schools have used it against us very openly and viciously." On the other hand, he continued, when other coaches find a kid who favors such rules, they well sell those rules as i! they weire their own. In the competitive arena of schoolboy recruiting, such matters are more than delicate.
