Big Jim Divided On Club SEATTLE (AP) - The Vni- versity of Washington Huskies, with quarterback Sonny Sixkiller kokng stronger than ever, open UK 1971 football season Saturday tgUDit * band of Gauchos from the University of California at Santa. Barbara. It vill be the first meeting of the two teams, and the Huskies art Uvofed by as much as 43 points. But Husky coach Jim Owens isn't all that happy. "I would like to have had a few more sharper practices," be said. "We have not been as aggressive or as sharp mentally as we should be." But Owens is happy with Sixkiller. He describes the junior signal caller as "stronger and more of a leader" than he was last year when he topped the nation with an average of 18 pass completions per game. Starting with Sixkiller will be Jim Krieg. sensor flanker »to was his favorite receiver last year; Tony Apostle. Junior halfback; and Jerry Ingalls, 202- pound fullback and one of four sophomores tabbed for the opening game. In pre-season practice, Sixkil- kr has looked good throning to j ends John Brady and Tom Scott, while Apostle and Ingalls have been getting help with the running game from Larry Dumas and Jim Echer. Defensively, the Huskies again look lough, although such stalwarts as Al Kravitz, Bob Ferguson, Cal Jones and Bill Cahfll won't start the opener because of minor injuries. The Gauchos have 19 jaior college transfers this year--six of whom have drawn starting assignments Saturday. "We're brought in some mighty fine talent and our preseason drills have been encouraging," said Andy Everest, who had a 2-9 season in his debut at Santa Barbara last year.

With 199 triumphs in 26 years as a bead coach at Maryland, Kentucky, Texas AM and Alabama, Bryant is on the thresh- hold of becoming the sixth coach in the history of college football to win 200 games. It won't be easy because Alabama visits Southern California, which is ranked fifth in The Associated Press pre-season poll. Coach John Mckay of the Trojans insists, however, that he doesn't expect another rout like last year's when Southern Cal romped 42-21. "Alabama is 200 per cent better than it was a year ago," says Mckay. "They are a lot bigger, especially on defense." The feeling is mutual. '·This year's Southern Cal team is bigger and better than last year's," says John David Crow, a member of Bryant's staff, "and I think every Alabama follower knows that they were great in every way in 1970." USC's 6-J-l record was disappointing, but the Trojans were the only team to tie national champion Nebraska and the only one to beat second- ranked Notre Dame.

In the second round of action, t will be the Road Runners vs. the "G" Men; Yard Birds go a g a i n s t the Finishers; the Lumbermen will challenge the Leathernecks and the Hornets meet the Wolverines. Seven games are scheduled , , ... the always nebulous home field advantage. Defense is also expected to play a large part in W. F. West victory chances at Tumwater, where two relatively green contingents will clash. Tumwater is seen a shade farther along than the Bearcats at this point offensively, but, Co a ch Orson Christensen's defensive unit should be more advanced than the T-Bird stop troops. In addition, the 'Cats possess great mobility and quickness and it is this that has caused divided between Cenlralia and Chehalis athletic fields. In each city the games start at 7 p.m. S a t u r d a y night with the nightcap trailing at 8:15 p.m. The Lumbermen have taken the league championship both years of the existence of the league. The first year they walked away with the title, but last year, with the expansion of the league to include four ChehaUs teams, the Lincoln Creek contingent bad a tougher time of it.
