Around The Big Eight Iowa State AMES, Iowa (AP) — Coacl Johnny Majors welcomed bad. several more players off Iowa State's lengthy injured Us Monday, including place kicke Reggie Shoemake. "Our.injury situation is get ting better, but not as quickh as I would like," Majors com mented during the Iwo-hou drill. "Dean Carolson, Mike Ter rizzi, Steve Burns, Henrj Lewis, Bob Matey, Tom Wilcoj and Larry Marquardt are stil nursing injuries so we had contrac hold them out of work," Majors said. "We are going to let Shoe make kick a short time each .day this week then send him in to work on weights to build up his strength," kicking coach Arch Steel said. Shoemake, a place kicker was released from the hospita Sunday after missing three practice sessions with mononu cleosis. Idaho, the Cyclones' season opening opponent, "will come in here like caged tigers," Ma jors warned his squad after the Vandals' 42-14 Boise State.

(AP) Coach Floyd Gass mentioned an overlooked but important point in Oklahoma State's victory of over Mississippi State during OSUfs quarterback club meeting Monday. "We didn't give the defense bad field position," he said. "We didn't give up a fumble or a pass interception in bad field position." The Cowboy defense showed as well. The Bulldogs Tan only 11 plays in OSU territory and only four inside the Poke 30 yard lined. Gass also had some comments on the Cowboy's next opponent, Arkansas Razorbacks. "We're running into a seasoned football team," head. "They have six starters back on offense and five'back on defense. "The important thing is that we're going over their as winners.

(AP) - The University of Tulsa football team started a normal week's preparation Monday afternoon for its upcoming game with Kansas State. The workout was light and included an on the field scouting report on the opponent. "The guard situation is impressive with Lindsay Anthony strong at right guard and Mike Mills and Lewis McGce fighting for the left guard slot. We will not know about George Kulovic being able to start until around game time," said coach Claude Gibson. "All the coaches were impressed with the Kansas Stale defense. The Kansas Slate offense made some crucial mistakes but they are running a new offensive system and it is only natural that they are not as sharp as they can be.

Record Attendanc F or NFL Preseason NEW YORK (AP) - A record 3,811,858 persons, an average of 49,505 per game turned out to watch preseason pro foolball, the National Football league announced Monday. The same 78-game exhibition schedule last season including one twin-bill, drew 3,496,782 or 47,254 per game. Division Champs Should Be Better Little Chance 49ers Will Return To Losing Ways SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Dick Nolan, coach of the San rancisco 49ers, says "the poise factor" kept his team out if the Super Bowl last season. Looking back on the 49ers' 170 loss to Dallas in the National r ootball Conference title game, Volan' said, "Some of our /ounger players made mistakes hey hadn't made since early in he season. You've got to remember that the game,was the biggest thing in most of their ives." The game also was the big- rest In the history of the 49ers, who waited 25 years for their irst division title. They sur- >rised , the National Football gUe by rebounding from a 4-8-2 record in 1969 to lO^-l last season and edge favored Los Angeles in the NFC West. Losing Season Remote But with quarterback John irodie coming off a season that earned him the NFL's Most Valuable Player award, and young players such as All-Pro receiver Gene Washington, 1970 NFC Rookie of the Year Bruce Taylor and defensive linemen Cedrick Hardman and Tommy Hart still showing improvement, there's little chance the 49ers will cross back to the losing side this year. Denver Broncos Coach Lou Saban, after a preseason loss to San Francisco, said, "That is an exceptionally talented team. Anyone who doesn't think they have a chance of going all the way to the Super Bowl is fooling themselves." Brodie passed for 2,941 yards to lead NFL quarterbacks last season. He threw just 10 interceptions while completing 59 per cent of his passes. Washington caught 1,100 yards worth of passes last year to lead NFL receivers. He's starting his third pro season. Ahd other 49er receivers, such as Dick Witcher, Bob Windsor, Ted Kwalick and Jimmy Thomas also have youth on their side. "I think we'll improve our running game," Dolan says, bring up our average and make it equal to our passing game." Former Canadian Football League star Vic Washington is one reason. Washington, with more speed than starling running backs Ken Willard and Doug Cunningham, figures to play a lot and make the 49ers' attack more versatile. The 49ers" veteran offensive line—which allowed Brodie to be tackled just eight times last season—and reliable place Kicker Bruce Gossett are solid factors in the offense. Tackles Cas Banaszek and Len Rhode, guards Randy Beisler and Woody Peoples and center Forrest Blue make up the starting line. On defense, old pros Charlie Kueger, Stan Hindman, Jim Johnson and Roosevelt Taylor play among some of the most highly rated young players in the game. Bruce Taylor made his share of rookie mistakes last season at the corncrback spot opposite All-Pro Johnson, but he drove opponents mad on punt returns, averaging 12 yards per return. Seasoned Safeties Roosevelt Taylor and Mel Phillips, another seasoned player, are the safeties. The 49ers were seeking backup help in the college draft, but lost their No. 1 pick, Tim Anderson of Ohio State, to the Canadian League. Starting linebackers Dave Wilcox, P'rank Nunley and Skip Vanderbundt are starting their third season togoUier. In the defensive line, Hardman, Hart and Bill Belk handle the ends, Kruegcr and Earl Edwards are the starters at Tackle, backed up by veterans Hindman and Sam Silas. The 49ers carried eight defensive linemen last year, simply because, "good ones are hard to come by and you can't have too many," Nolan explained. WP—Forsch. T—2:17. A— 7,476.
