O--ID Mike Cooney of Tyler, Tex., Ken Copeland of Fort Worth, Tex., UCLA, Michigan Picked to Top National Scene Eighth of a series By MURRAY OLDERHAX NBA Staff Correspondent CHICAGO — (NBA) — This is the year Terry Brennan is on his own. Barest fragments remain from the stuff Frank Leahy left at Notre Dame. The outlook is not bright. This is no castigation of the boy coach. What lies ahead of him is a crucial period that will decide whether the Irish will sink into the post-Rockne abyss or maintain the Leahy level. It's tough to take losses like Guglielmi, Heap, Varrichione, Palumbo. Shannon — an All-America roster — and expect to be up again. Even the coaching staff has been weeded out. Brennan's backfield doesn't shape up badly at all. Paul Hornung, the highly touted Kentuckian whose default to South Bend chased Bear Bryant all the way to Texas A. and M., resumes at normal quarterback after a soph season of fullbacking. Don Schaefer is a spirited line plunger. Jim Morse broke Into the first eleven last year at halfback. Aubrey Lewis was a phenomena! schoolboy at Montclalr, N. J. The line is something else, with even Capt. Ray Lemek, an outstanding guard, doubtful after a knee operation. With the usual loaded schedule, we don't see the Irish cracking the nation's top ten. * • • They may be displaced, by the powerhouse Andy Gustafson has brewing at Miami of Coral Gables, Fla. Hurricane Gus will be launched against Notre Dame, Oct. 7, but even before that we'll get an idea of how it stacks up against Georgia Tech in a great doubleheader opener, Sept. 17, in Atlanta (Georgia-Mississippi is also on the card). Spearheading Gus' celebrated drive series is halfback Whitey Rouviere, seldom spectacular but solid in all departments. Quarterback Mario Bonofiglio and fullback Don Bosseler, a couple of displaced northerners, are other names to file pronto. It's a completely veteran and tested cast. Another southern independent coming up is Florida State, with huce end Tom Peamster. And on the subject of Independents, let's not overlook that small island in the midwest featuring Cincinnati, Miami of Ohio, Marquette and remember this one, Dayton. Hughie Devore, the old Notre Damer, is mounting a high- powered engine on the Flyers, who present all-star end candidate Jim Katcavage. * * * Now, in-itching more to the national scene, this is the way we see them when all the hulla-BOW- Loo simmers down: UCLA, Michigan, Miami of Florida, Maryland, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Rice, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech, Army. There's room for error, admittedly, and it may show up quickly because of the many testing early season games. Miami has Georgia Tech, as stated. Maryland-UCLA, Sept. 24, gives immediate insight on national powers. This is one season, incidentally, where emphasis on squad depth will be greater than ever because of the new substitution regulation. The four-minute rule In the second and fourth periods Is out. Now « player can re-enter the game onc» any quarter In which he has been removed. It's a move back to pla- tooning, but only by 11-man uniti which must play offense and defense.
