Friday, October 23, 1970 The Lincoln Star '21 Beamtgeit Reseivung Less, Bamaging Wore OKLAHOMA STATE TIGHT END HAS TWO TOUCHDOWNS, THREE FIRST DOWNS IN SIX CATCHES smrmmis By Hal Brawn Sportt Editor, The Star Schedules Affect Ratings II YOU QOn mink the SrhfidllP, tfnm nlaua ha. some ettect On the ratines, then how especially in a crowd. "When you get only one pass a game you gotta catch it!" Dearinger is the target of a lot of good natured jests, particularly from end Hermann Eben, State's record setting receiver and Dearinger's closest friend. Eben likes to tell the story of the time Dearinger was on an "open line" show over the OSU campus radio station. "Tom doesn't say a lot but he's quick," Hermann relates the story with a laugh, "I called him the night he was on this radio show and asked him guess I used to think in terms of passes caught but now I've found it's much more important to win." As a 185-pound sophomore, he moved a two-year regular out of the tight end job and quickly gained the nickname of "Stickman." "I guess I got that name because I was so skinny," he says with a grin, "I think it was Steve Farris who started calling me that name." Two-and-a-half years and 20-pounds later, Dearinger is one of State's best blockers and best clutch receivers, Stillwater, thing about Oklahoma State's senior tight end Tom Dearinger, he's receiving fewer passes but hurting the opposition more- lot more! la bis first two campaigns the lanky Stillwater product caught 58 passes for 632 yards and one touchdown.

This year, he's caught only six passes in five games but three have netted key first downs and two others produced touchdowns. "It's kinda hard to pass up targets like Hermann (Eben) and Dick (Graham)," the soft-spoken Dearinger says, "I 'Why don't they throw to you more? Have the coaches lost confidence in your ability to catch the ball? "Then Tom shot back, 'Well, Hermann he knew my voice because I hadn't given my name we've got such a tremendous wide receiver we've just gotta throw to him'. "That really put me in my place," Eben grinned. Eben has plenty of good words for Dearinger. In fact, he feels Tom's versatility is far greater than his.

"Tom's underrated. He's got good hands and he can really block," Hermann seriously adds, "That blocking is more than you can say for me. I don't block too well." Both of the Cowboy seniors were married last spring and at Dearinger's wedding, Eben found Tom's car and painted it rather heavily. His conscience must have bothered him somewhat as he followed Dearinger to a filling station at the edge of town and in his dress tuxedo washed the automobile for his friend. While Dearinger is a young man of few words, Eben says, "He's a pretty good chat terbox when he's around friends.

He keeps his cool but I think you'd be in trouble if he ever got mad." Tom's evaluation of Hermann is, "You can't, realize how great his hands are when it comes to catching the ball but most of all he's a great guy. Believe me, he's truly a practicing Christian." A B-minus student, who plans a future with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, quietly goes on his way catching his one pass a game and leveling defenders with deadly efficiency. and Toledo being in the top 20 while Missouri is not? 4 you suppose Ohio State would still be rated No. 1 if they had played Air Force, Notre Dame and Nebraska like Missouri has. 'i Give Ohio 'State's schedule to Missouri and we'll bet you the Tigers or any one of many other teams still would be unbeaten.

Could. one of the reasons be that why would you want ta play Notre-Dame or any other top rated )eam when you can be rated No. 1 by playing patsies? For prediction purposes, we should have more teams playing a schedule like Ohio State's. It might help us get back above the 70 figure. Last week, it was 32-19 for 62.7, making the season mark read 212-97-4 for 68.4.

"It seems like every time we get ready to play somebody they are right at their prime," boutneast coach Frank Solich observes. Early in the season teams could defense East solelv against the pass," Solich points out.

"Now they've established their ground game to go along with the passing and as a result they're twice as tough to stop." The Southeast mentor fears East's improved defense as well. f'They gave up 35 points in their first he says, "yet just a single touchdown in each of their last three. East coach Lee Zentic admits his Spartans have been steadily improving. "We're coming right along," he says. "Our ability to move the ball on the-ground as well as in air has really helped.

Though our defense is also improved," Zentic added, "we'll certainly be thoroughly tested this week." Zentic points to Southeast's backfleld speed as the one factor he worries about the most "They're much quicker than anyone we've faced so far. They have a number of backs who can do lots of things well." But Zentic sees the Southeast game as a particularly big op-. portunity to his club. "They've beaten all three of the teams who beat us Northeast, Lincoln High and Grand Island. We could 'really redeem ourselves for the season with a win in this one."

"I feel real let down that this I situation came about when 11 players didn't show up for practice, then I felt it became a matter of who is coaching the In a similar confrontation last year, blacks presented a list of complaints which included a request that a black assistant coach be hired. The matter subsided without any publicity.

L'AtilanLa -Muhammad AlilAngelo Dundee, All's trainer. By HAL BROWN Star Sports Editor Nebraska made some adjustments in its kickoff coverage Thursday "in preparation for Oklahoma State Saturday in hopes of stopping a particular kickoff return the Cowboys often employ.

Films show the Cowboys using a return that appears to have a player handing the ball forward to a move that should be illegal, according to football rules. "It would appear to be illegal," Husker head coach Bob Devaney admitted, "But they've used it and we've got to prepare for it. "If they actually hand the ball forward, it's got to be illegal and I'm going to talk tu the officials about it before the game. "But if the man getting the ball is slightly behind the man handing off, then there's that for his last bonafide bout against Zora Folley in March 1967. "That Quarry kid hits well coming out ot ciincnes, saw Dundee, who is more ot a pro fessional associate than a friend to Ali.

"That's why we've been letting sparring partners rap Clay in the mouth so much. That worries me, too now ne react to getting busted in the old banana nose." Fight publicist Murray Goodman said about 520 newsmen will staff the bout in the Municipal Auditorium. Television will beam it to theaters with 900,000. available seats nationally and to screens Europe, Australia and South coverage is hotter than at any championship said Goodman. "And, this isn't really a title bout.

Balanced enough is the Husker offense that it ranks as the Big Eight's only team averaging over 400 yards a game (402.1), holding down third in rushing (230.9) and second in passing (171.2). The two offensive speciality Categories continue to be headed by Colorado and Kansas State. The Buffs, still leading all in scoring with a 30.6 mark, are the most potent on the ground with their 272.8 reading. Kansas State, with Lynn Dickey once again zeroed in, is the passing leader (177.0) and aiming at its third straight aerial title. Defensively, Nebraska's Black Shirts still lead against the rush (134.5) and totally (252.3), while Oklahoma State, idle last week, took over the pass-defense lead by default The Cowboys, giving up 106.2 a game, will be challenged to keep the spot (this week's foe, Nebraska, is second in passing proficiency).

The Huskers, who saw their bulging rushing-defense lead cut to less than 20 yards by Kansas' potent rushing offense last week, still top the defense against scoring standings, showing an 11.7 mark.
