Spirit runs high in Irish workout After only two days of work the St. Joseph Fighting Irish will begin easing up for their upcoming battle with the Rosedale Bulldogs in a Little Kight Conference, tilt Thursday night at Charles S. Kerg Field at 8. Assistant coach Tony Cintgran said the spirit of the boys was good .yesterday although they went through a three hour workout. They know there can not be any letting up and they are working hard for the contest. Rosedale has a big line that has been to the wars before and have three outstanding boys up front. "Danny Fowler (185) was a All- Conference last season and is probably one of the belter ends," said Coach Tony Cintgran. Tackles Mike Thompson (225) and Hal Tweatt (215) will give the Bulldogs a good line." Last year the Bulldogs led going into the fourth quarter and although they lost their outstanding quarterback Welly Wilson and their tailback, the Irish will have their hands full Thursday night. "Although we do not know what Uiey will come out doing we feel that if they beat us it will not be because they are in better shape," said Cinlgran. The Irish will sfart at ends Bobby Duncan (200) and Johnny Windham (154) or Barry Brady (172), tackles Buster Mascagni (185) and Larry Kussman (230), guards Jeff Nick (157) und Joe Walker (145), center Howard Fisher (250) quarterback Nickie Crawford (145) or Doe Signa (162), tailback Ralph Thompson (165) or Sandy Casavechla (137), fullback Mike Tubertini (165) and.wingback Jim Crawford (150). On defense the Irish will have Tommy Turfitt (130) at cornerback and Nick will play linebacker if Tubertini can not play. Mike Hinkle (162) will see action at both guard and linebacker. "Quarterback Signa and fullback Tuberlini are still doubtful and it will probably be game time before we know if they can go," said Cintgran. USM getting ready for * Bama HATTIESBURG--Southern Mississippi Coach P. W. Underwood started Monday getting his Southerners ready for a test against an Alabama team he believes has a better running and passing game than that of a year ago. "I believe they (Alabama) are stronger both ways," the coach said. "Hunter (QB Scott Hunter) is a year older and was plenty accurate in their first game. And Jilleba (fullback Pete Jilleba) and Musso (tailback Johnny Musso) will give them a stronger ground game." Concentration on a scouting report of Alabama's 17-13 victory over Virginia Tech was the main order of the day Monday as the Southerners worked with abbreviated gear. Concerning his own club Underwood said "We've got to get well and we've got to quit stopping ourselves." Senior linebacker Mike Battles got off the injury list for brief spots of action in Southern's 14-5 win over Southeastern Louisiana but senior offensive tackle Bob Shepherd and junior linebacker Dickey Surace did not play and defensive end Terry Griffin also played just 'part-time, Reserve defensive tackle David Jussely also watched from the sidelines. Senior quarterback Gary Rayburn, who started the opener, was the only addition to the injury list. Sophomore Danny Palmer who came on to complete 11 of 22 passes but threw two interceptions, moved to the fore for Monday's drill. Underwood said he thought his defensive unit gave a "good overall performance" against Southeastern but a number of individual errors were noted. "We had more inconsistency on offense than we anticipated," the first-year head coach said. "Stopping ourselves is one thing we've got to eliminate," he added, and enumerated the times the Southerners hurt themselves on infractions, fumbles, dropped passes and errant passes. "Some of our mistakes could have been caused by our using three different quarterbacks," he concluded. Tailback Larry (Mole) Moulton was the leading ground-gainer for Southern with 74 yards on 18 carries. Palmer's completions totaled 119 yards and included a 15-yard touchdown toss to split end Billy Mikel, who caught four. Tight end Lionel Fayard also caught four.
