Graves Says New Grid Rules Make Play Ragged GAINESVILLE, Oct. 18 W If the play has been ragged in college football games you've seen this fall, blame part of in more mistakes by players, coaches and officials. The officials admitted before 31,000 spectators at the Florida- it on the wild card substitution) Vanderbilt game here Saturday rule, says Coach Ray Graves of that they goofed one. After pae Florida. In Florida's first five games single substitutions averaged 69 a game more than one for every minute of play. "It means a different back to fake to and a different back to hand off to on succeeding plays. You don't get team co hesion; you get confusion,' Graves said. "But you have to do it to keep up with your op ponents. In his opinion, the rule per mitting a single player to enter the game at any time results H e r e' s y o u r " c u e" to b ette r ta ste, SAYS MR. SMOOTH TO MR. SILK .

In previous Florida games the officials made a similar mis take twice but corrected it only once. Graves sain. 'Instead of coaches .coaching and officials officiating, they have to be bookkeepers under the present substitution rule, said Graves. Like most college coaches, he wants to change to free substi tution and two-platoon football the same as played by profes sional and high school teams Eighty-five per cent of the coaches favored that in a poU taken by Ray Eliot of Illinois last year. Why should we be in the middle between the high schools and pros?" Graves asks. Ve ask a high school coach if he has some good prospects who can play botr ways (of fense and defense) and he tells us about some who can play one way. Then the pros ask us if we have some good prospects who can play one way and we teU them about some who can play two ways. It just isn't fair to the boys." uraves believes everyone could do a better job under two- platoon football. We could have twice as good football and it would take less time on the practice field to coach it thus taking less of an athletes time away from his academic work, Graves said, "The fans showed the! would rather see two-platoon by the way they took to pro footbalL And it would be better for the sports writers because they would know who is in the game." He has an answer to the ob jection that two-platoon football would center all the talent in the . big schools and hurt the smaller ones. "All the NCAA has to do is limit the number of players you can use just as the pros do," uraves said. Florida, under Graves who is in his first year as head coach, has a record of . 4-1. He was assistant to Bobby Dodd at Georgia Tech before taking the Florida job. ' Miami, Florida On Gator Bowl . Committee's List JACKSONVILLE.

LSU Picked Over Florida, Auburn to Toi Qple Miami By VERNON BUTLER ! kenton & Co. are handy at scor-ATLANTA, Oct. 18 (P) You U8 both touchdowns and field say Alabama Is hungrier than Tennessee? So why did the Vols practically devour the Tide? Because they were thirsty, that's why. You say the LSU offense Is about to start clicking? How can your offense click when you spend the Kentucky night trying to ward off a bunch of hungry Wildcats? Past failures Ignored if not forgotten, we trudge blindly into a nine-game week hoping to hoist the season average back into the plush .800 neighborhood. Those two misses last week trimmed it to .788 on 26 correct and seven refusals of the chosen teams to cooperate. Starting, as usual, with the conference games: Louisiana State over Florida: The Bengals are back home where they're extremely hard to handle. LSU should find some way to score, or we're going to stop believing the old maxim that there are more ways to score on defense than offense. Georgia over Kentucky: This goals. Georgia Tech over Tulane: Tech usually wins the close ones at Grant Field, and this one is going to be close. Mississippi over Arkansas: One of the nation's top games and certain to be a thriller. Ole Miss has more defense. Auburn over Miami: But the Tiger can't afford even a small letdown, Miami is on the up swing. Alabama over Houston: Bear Bryant has given the Tide the proper dosage of growl, and the , squad wiU dutifully mangle the Cougars. Vanderbilt over Marquette: The Commodores get their first victory but little time to celebrate with Clemson next on the program. Tennessee over Chattanoogai With Alabama out of the way, the Vols can spend the next two weeks preparing for November tests with Tech, Ole Miss, Kentucky and Vanderbilt Mississippi State over Memphis State: Memphis offense led by J a m e s Earl Wright against Mississippi State bal ance. A standoff with the Ma is a tossup. Kentucky is getting better every week, and the , roons getting a slight advantage and aerial minded team coming Wildcats are at home, but Tar- because they're at home. across the bay. i : ; ; : - ' Standouts working against Hollins plays were Joe Scionti! and John Toole. Running weU on offense were Dick Whiteside, Mike Ramsey, Pete Licata, Jimmy Hunt and Doyle Dudley. The Panthers are nursing a few bruises but nothing serious enough to keep any man out of the game. Chamberlain Coach John Ad- cock expects some old fashioned rock 'em and sock 'em football from Manatee's Hurricanes. They are real tough," he said. "Everybody knows those Manatee people wiU hit you. But our boys have had a lot of zio and hustle this afternoon. They showed a lot of desire. You know, you play like you practice. At least that is the way I was taught." Two Boys Sick The Chiefs have two men on the sick list, Nelson. McLaughlin and Chris Thompson. They both have an upset stomach and plain don t feel good. With those symptoms. Coach Adcock told them to stay away from practice He doesn't want them breath ing on his healthy boys. Hillsborough showed the effects of the rough game with Lakeland last week and many of the boys were going at half speed. There are a lot of petty injuries but nothing to keep anyone out of the Boca Ciega game. Coach Hal Griffin said the Terriers had a good practice and boys were humping after the narrow escape in the Lakeland encounter. Gulf-Gobbler Game Site Changed to Turkey Creek The Turkey Creek and Gulf High School football game Friday night has been changed to Turkey Creek's Holmes Field, instead of its original site. Gob ble coach Jim Reed announced last night. The game was originally set for Gulf's field, but it isn't ready yet and the Bucs have been playing their home games at Tarpon Springs.
