Coast Sfars Named By Platoon System SAN FRANCISCO (API -- The 26th annual all Pacific Coast football teams, selected for the Associated Press by the writers, coaches and stoxrts. is distinguished from predecessors by the fact that the two platoon system is carried for tl^e first time. P L A Y E R S FROM both conference and independent schools are eligible for the granddaddy of the coast's all star squads. C a l i f o r n i a , conference c h a m p i o n and Rnse bowl nominee, placed three men on the varsity offense eleven and the same n u m b e r on t h e defensive team. R u n n e r u p Washington took three positions on offense and one on defense. Independent U n i v e r s i t y of SH» Francisco won uvij places on the defensive o u t f i t , along with Stanford.

John Ol:'ewski, took Oklahoma Wins Final UP Pol! MEW YORK (UP) -- The national champion Oklahoma football team, victorious in 31 straight lames, figured Tuesday to make .he Sugar bowl No. 32, judging from the final ratings of the United Press experts' rating board. THE BOARD, comprised of 35 of the nation's top coaches, placed Oklahoma first in the land by giving It 34(i of a possible 350 votes-an amazing total. Texas was hoisted to second place in the final ratings, Tennessee placed third, California fourth; Army fifth and Michigan sixth. Kentucky, Oklahoma's S u g a r bowl opponent, is seventh. Then, in order in the first 10, come Princeton. Michigan State and Ohio State. Thus, based on the way the teams rank, here's what you might expect in the bowl games New Year's day: DID YOU RING? With the timekeeper sternly counting off the seconds in London, Jim Kenny unwraps himself from around the bell to scramble back Into the rin«. It happened in the sixth round of his title fight against British empire featherweight champion Ronnie Clayton. The Scotsman got back by the count of nine, but lost the decision. JOD. With most of the players, coaches say, it seems to be a matter of just sitting around and expecting ihe inevitable. They're just waiting for calls from the armed forces, which the athletes feel are bound to come, sooner or later. IT'S TOUGH enough for a coaeh to build a fire under a team without added complications such as the threat of war. We're not saying that war is picking on athletics as a single target for destruction of morale--it hits every field--but in athletics it tends to be more pronounced and its presence is shown much more quickly. Any team whose morale is substandard is picked out in a hurry. It is quickly evident when a football or basketball club doesn't have the customary spark. One of the biggest problems any coach faces is getting his team mentally ready for a game. This means convincing them that they must do or die for dear old Siwash. But it's a little tough for any kid o put his sentiment for a school ibove his feelings for his own fu- .ure. It's pretty rough on the coach limself. In most cases, he is just as vulnerable to military service as are his athletes. The major aim of any coach is security In his position. Regardless of the stories, the coaches generally give out about wanting to move up, they still tvould be content to ride along with BASKETBALL FORECAST Dean Has Big Job at Cte But Vikings Are We Despite returning lettermen, Chaliis high school coach Dow Dean sees this season as one strictly for building a team. Dean looks to only two regulars back from last season, Keith Sharpen and Francis Hammond, 5-6 and 5-10, respectively, to provide the backbone of U' his varsity. One transfer student. Vernon Hoops, has struck camp from Jerome, and stands 6-3, but the learn as a unit is small and lacks experience, Dean says. The Vikings had a tough time of it last season. Dean says, winning two and losing 14. but he fails to see any easier path ahead. Candidates for this season's red and white squad are Dick Jutkins.

Heal Drafted By Dallas Club a fair measure of success with a permanent job. So, the job is doubly tough for a young coach with a young team. NO ONE is weeping crocodile tears over the situation. Many of them are going out and trying to do something about it. by installing freshman rules in most conferences, allowing first-year students to compete in varsity athletics. Even so, a number of smaller colleges may wake up next year without an athletic program because they'll be without athletes. Apparently, we can look forward to another period of war-time college athletics, unless a few diplomats can learn what the score is, themselves. SOME OF the pre-Idaho and Idaho State basketball series publicity recalled that Idaho State had beaten the Vandals in their last previous meeting. Actually, Tom West, the Bengal faculty athletic committee chairman, says Idaho State beat Idaho twice previously, once by a 47-46 count in Pocatello, and the other time by eig*ht or 10 points at Twin Falls. Tom says there was another series back in the dim, hazy past, but he can recall little about that one, other than that he believes the teams split. That would keep the Bengal-Vandal cage series an even- up affair to date. Tuesday night's Pocatello wrest- j ling program featured a command performance. THE DISTRICT athletic commissioner, none too pleased by last week's goings-on out at the National Guard armory, had ord- | ered a rematch of the tag team I bout which had resulted in victory for Buzz Jones ami Tarzan Zimba --a disputed victory, to put it mildly. Jones and Z'imba had been awarded the decision over Dano McDonald and John Pavich, but because of the circumstances, the commissioner o r d e r e d another bout--and this time with I wo referees. It happened this way last week. The teams split falls. Then as Zimba and Pavich came out of the ropes at one another, they collided and both fell to the mat, out cold. McDonald entered the ring in an attempt to revive his partner, Pavich. The referee, Lee Grable, moved McDonald out of the ring, accompanying him all the way to his corner. U'UILE THE REFEREE'S back! was turned Jones sneaked into the i ring, picked up his partner, Zimba, j and laid him across Pavich, in | body-press style. When the referee ; turned around, he measured out a three-count and the bout belonged to Zimba and Jones. The commissioner had asked that purses for the bout be withheld, but the wrestlers already had been paid. Mike Nazarian, the "Mad Armenian," and Grable were scheduled to meet in the opener. Nazarian was peeved at Grable's order for him to break a series of strangleholds on Pat McGill last week, and finally Grable's disqualification of } the Mad Mike for a strangle. Naz- arian welcomed the opportunity to meet Grable. PA!' McGILL and Don Mayne will referee the tag bout. Tight Race Looms For Cage Honors . NEW YORK (AP)--The No. I college basketball team in the nation for 1951? ONLY A CRYSTAL gazer can foressee which of a power packed, group that includes CCNY, Bradley, Kentucky, North Carolina State, L o n g Island, Brigham Young, Iowa and Kansas will emerge next March as the nation's top cage quintet. Leading cage observers from coast to coast agree that the customers will watch the best brand of basketball seen since the war. City College of New York, the national champion, naturally is generally rated as the team io beat. With two exceptions, the Beavers have the same team that captured both the National Invitation and NCAA tournaments last March. NAT HOLM AX'S grand slam kids, however, will not find the road an easy one. They must contend with the improved Kentucky, NC State, LIU, Birgham Young and Kansas squads. Bradley, g o o d enough to be ranked No. 1 in the final Associated Press poll last season before the tourneys, is as good if not better than it was in '49-50. Denver Off for East Army.

DENVER (UP) -- The veteran basketball team of Denver university left Tuesday for points east and the annual eastern barnstorming trip against some of the toughest teams in the nation. DENVER WILL join Brigham Young in the invasion and from all indications this could be the year Rocky mountain fans have been waiting for ever since Wyoming won the region's last national crown in 1944. The Cougars earned the plaudits of eastern writers with an. easy 84 to 69 win over Niagara Saturday night and was to get the real test Tuesday night in a game with City College of New York at iladison Square garden. CCNY is currently ranked as the nation's top hardwood quintet. When Denver arrives in the big city, the two top teams from the mountains will be in the east at the same time--with one thing in mind. To make up for a disastrous road trip of a year ago when Denver lost four straight and BYU dropped three out of four, winning only from Loyola of Chicago. DENVER THREW the Skyline in hysteria at the start of last season by zooming into first place and holding on until near the end when lack of reserves and inexperience dropped the Pioneers into a second place tie with Wyoming, Coach Hoyt Brawner has hopes for better things this year, "}Ve'll have a much better reserve bench, in addition to the ail-veteran five, and the experience the boys got last year should make them tough all year," Brawner said. He warned that he wasn't too optimistic about Denver winning the opener against S H H K Y K P O H T . l,,i.
