Although Commissioner Bil Reed claims the Big Ten is fa from a football disaster area some of the coaches would life the rules changed. "I'm in favor of one rule fo: everyone," said Coach Jack Mollenkopf of Purdue's unde feated and ninth-ranked Boiler makers. "I think we should fol low the NCAA rules which an. strict enough. I'm all for a foot ball program to be as strong as it can be." Illinois' Jim.Vaiek said "I'm tor red shirting and more scho arships. Personally, I woulc like to see the entire nation work under the same rules in eluding the same number o scholarships."

By LEW FERGUSON ssociated Pfe» Sportt Writer KANSAS CITY (AP) - With x of the eight conference ams receiving voles in this eek's Associaled Press Top wenty football poll, it was; a eady gathering Monday for the eekly Big Slight .briefing ses- on. There was one exception, how- and Coach Pepper Rodg- s didn't duck the dbvious question: What has Happened to his Kansas Jayhawks? A year ago, Rodgers and KU were riding high, unbeaten until Oklahoma upset them late in the season and making bowl scouts drool. Now, however, the Jayhawks have lost already to Texas Tech and New Mexico and face highflying Kansas Slate Salurday in one of three Big Eight Conference openers. "We're pretty low today, to be honest about it," Rodgers said. "I'm not so concerned about the physical condition of our feam as I am about whether bur team is as hungry as it was two years ago. We were quite low two years ago at this stage, then we beat Nebraska and things jelled. "But unless our older players do their jobs, we're not going to have a good team." A suggestion from, a newsman that KU's basic problem may be an inability to move the ball on offense, and that this problem might be laid at the feet of quarterback Jim Etlinger, brought this relort from Rodgers: I can't blame it on one man. If we'd had a little belter defensive team on the field'than we did Saturday night (at New Mexico), our Offense might not have looked so bad, and vice ;rsa. "Jimmy's not playing real good foolball, but some others aren'l either. He played better at New Mexico than a lot of people thought." About Saturday's battle with K-Stale, Rodgers said, "Our :eam certainly isn't over-confident. We didn't come back to earth; we've been shoved derground." Rodgers called the Wildcals 'a very sound football team vith some great individuals." Vince Gibson, Kansas Stale coach, said Kansas.' loss to New Mexico didn't make - the Wildcats respect the Jayhawks any ess. "Kansas lost a game probably because they were working on stuff for us last week," he ;aid. "They've got good material, and we know they're going to come after us." Missouri's Dan Devino and seemed awed by the other's team. "That Missouri - Michigan score (40-17) was enough to scare anyone," Devaney said. "Missouri is a team that won't beat itself. They have big, strong backs and just run at you." Countered Devine, "They (Nebraska) dig iii and come at you. Jerry Tagge has to be one of the better sophomores to come along.
