(AP) --! The players are smaller, the ';· field larger and the weather -..colder in the Canadian Football /^-League. ':*. So says Arkansas State University Coach Bill Davidson, r, · who spent several ..weeks, this .'· summer coaching for the Ed- ,'·' monton Eskimos. . · "\ "The difference between the - Canadian league and the Na;i' tional Football League is the size thing," Davidson said. ''"John LaGrone of SMU and Greg Pipes of Baylor are both playing for Edmonton. Both are Outstanding football players, but because of their size they .were passed over. ,Both are ;about 5-foot-10, and that's probably stretching LaGrone." . In the CFL, Ihere are^Z play-, "ers on each team.' The extra player is used in the backfield. "You don't even 'notice there Tare 12 people on each team because of the larger field," Da- '.vidson said. "The hardest-thing o get used to is lhat you can send all Ihose backs in motion at the' same lime" toward the ine." * In the CFL, a team has three downs lo make 10 yards and a 'irst down and there is no siicli :hing as a fair catch or a dead jail on a punt or field goal attempt. "Say Ihe score is tied, it's the last play of the game a n d ' y o u are on the other team's 30-yard line," he said. "You don't have to attempt that field, goal. All you've got to do, is line up and punt the bail out of the stadium and you get a point." If a team is trapped in the end ?pne while attempting lo run back a punt or a field goal attempt, it is one point for the kicking team. "The kicking game makes up about one-third of the offense," he said., The end zone is 25 yards deep instead of 10 yards the United States,.making it"'. evfeh.' more difficult for a Ryan A Solid Choice : ' ' ' *' , . ' » ' i ' In Olympic Speciality £' MUNICH, Germany (AP) -- ; ~vim Byun's third crack at a !tgold medal may be over!-shadowed this year by a race inmost consider potentially 4he '^'greatest at'the 20th Olympiad-- 'j;the 5,000-meter run. S, America has two fine en- it trants'in Steve Prefohtaine and ·t^George Young, the latter com- "'petirig in his fourth Olympics, a .record for a n . American dis- irtance runner. But the two, j-*along with Leonard Hilton, face ;tas many as 10 others who could f.'break the Olympic record of 13 ^ minutes 39.6 seconds. ·t: In fact, the predictions are Uthat it'll take at least 13:40 just ~ to make the finals; |: BYUN SOLID CHOICE f" Meanwhile, Eyun appears a :? solid choice in,the 1,500-meter ' r u n , the metric mile. In 1964, 1 the leen-aged Ryun failed to J.make the finals. In 1968, at ^high-atltitude Mexico Glty, he .:Most the gold to Kip Keino of . ^Kenya and finished second . · ii,'. Keino is back this year, re- 'vportedly planning to triple in ,V-the 1,500, the 5,000 and the v'steeplechase. J; Ryun, 25, has hot approached f, his world Accord 3:33.1 in years r» and even in winning the U;S. f trials at Eugene, Ore., did only ,r 3:41.5. But his form was good, £ his feet flashed as of old and f experts said Ryun had re- j turned. £ His top competition could j,.come from Francesco Arese of j; Italy or a host of Englishmen. .Bob Wheeler and Jerome Howe ''round out the American eonlin ,. gent with both having recorded * siib-3:40 times Ihis year. r' The 5,000, however, is Ihe f race of Ihe Games. , |r AMERICAN RECORD r Prefontalne set Ihe American {·record of 13:2.8 in winning Ihe "lrials at Eugene with Young ^'second in 13:29.4.

In 'act, Shovter's lifetime best o 28:12 was set earlier this,year at the AAU championships as he ran second to late-kicking Greg Frederick's of Penn State. TOP U.S. ENTRANT ' Mike Manley is the top U.S entrant in the 3,000-metei steeplechase and lie has thi best chance of winning thi event of any .American since Horace Ashenfelter did 20 year,, ago. The ; 30-year-old Oregon schoo teacher is a true.veteran of the event with a lifetime best o 8:27.6, second best ever by an American. ' . Unfortunately, more than » dozen men have run faster lha that this year already, in eluding world record holdc Kerry O'Brien of Australia whose mark of 8:22.0 could f a l l Bronisiaw Malimnvskl of Po land has/already done 8:22. this year With Anders Garderui of Sweden and Kazmierz Ma randa of Poland recording fas times of 8:23.6 Bulgaria's Mik hall Zhclev has run 8:25.4. Keino's 8:30.0 in his first at tempt at the · steeplechas shows He could surprise thi good field. The classic marathon, all 2 miles of It. is probably the leas predictable race because of th hundreds of entrants, the lac off standardization in course around .Ihe world and the few competitions held prior to Ih games.

"If I run the bal the two-inch line one time hey;bring the ball back'to the np. This eliminates coaches riping about getting a bat pot.". Theie r is lillle difference in IB techniques employed in the :FL and NFL, says Davidson ince many of the coaches in Canada are Americans. Coaching at Edmonton vita, like being at a seminar," Da /idson said. "This -is an exp'erimenta Ime for these people," he said 'They are getting ready tu play iall games. They played foui ;xhibition games and two regu ar season games while I wa here. "In two of the exhibition ames, the temperatures wer n the 50s and 60s," he saic 'We dressed like it was lat November, here and we alway wore rain gear to the field." Davidson was responsible fo the Offensive 1 line at Edmonton "All had formerly been de 'ensive players so they didn lave that old pro attitude' o I've been here six or sevc years and you can't teach m anything,' " he said. "The were so eager to learn offen sive technique." Davidson said the America 'ootball players are called "im jorts" and that .a Canatlia' earn can only have 15 Amer can players on its 32-man ros ter. r ,i "What happens is that (he cut 10 players who might b setter than the last 10 the eep, but they've got lo cu them to make their quota," h said. ' · · Davidson managed to slip o'l. once' to play golf at Jasper Canada--a course which h say's is the · most picturesqu le's ever seen. "It's a national park, Ilk Yellowalone," he said.'"Ever tee faces a different snow-caj ped mountain. We came to th one hole and there was' ti wrapped around the tree's'hea the green. "The tin extended eight or 1 feet up the tree and \ve couldn figure out what it was for so w asked," he said. "We were to: it kept the bears from climbin up the trees.
