C. - (NEA) You have .to give the pre-season favorite tag to North Carolina North Carolina State in the Atlantic Coast Conference . but should be of excitement before the season is concluded. . At least four other teams should be in position to challenge the nation- Frank McGuire ally ranked Wolfpack, which won 28 of 32 games last winter. Here is my pre-season rating: 1, North Carolina State; 2, North Carolina; 3, Duke; 4, Wake Forest; 5, Maryland; 6, Clemson; 7, Virginia; and 8, South Carolina. Duke, runner-up to State last season and the conference's representative in the National Collegiate A. A. eliminations, has all its key players back except Capt, Don Tobin.

Tar Heels 'Better' North. Carolina should be 50 per cent, better with the addition of outstanding sophomore talent.

The INS panel of experts, in its final poll of the season, singled out he Army coach from a group of nominees which included Jess Hill of Southern California and Ed 3 rice of Texas. The experts also saluted these other "Best of the Week" performances: Game of .the Week— Army's come-from-behind 14-to-6 upset of Mavy. Player of the Week—Jon Arnett, Southern California halfback. Play of the Week — A 70-yard touchdown run by fullback Dick Gupton which gave Denver a controversial 6-to-3 victory and cost Wyoming the Skyline championship. Here's the evidence Considered by the board of East-West Shrine game scouts Berhie Bierman, Andy Kerr and Francis J. Powers; INS columnist Bob Considine, INS sports editor'John Barrington and sportscaster Harry Wismer: Coach of the Week Blaik, 30 years a coach, steered Army over 14 seasons to two national championships, six Eastern titles, five undefeated seasons and tnore. winning streaks of 32' and 28 games. But he was resigned to a mediocre, season this year after losing his brilliant passing and running tandem of Pete Vann and Ail-American Tommy Bell. He made a desperate gamble in converting Ail-American end Don quarterback, a switch that drew much criticism throughout, the season and even was blamed. for losses to Michigan, Syracuse and Yale. Saturday the man who couldn't pass and his hard-charging teammate's ran Navy aground, 14 to 6. "I knew we were taking an awful chance in switching Holleder," Blaik said after the game, "but from the moment I started thinking about this year I figured it was the only chance we had to 'beat Navy." Blaik forgot to.mention the pep talk he gave Holleder on the sidelines when things weren't going t°o well in the second quarter or how he re-rigged his offense to stymie a six-man Navy line and his de- fense'to cbpe with the Middies' baffling attack -which featured two lalfbacks'as flankers on the pitchout play. Game of the Week The Army-Navy game was unique for many reasons, not leas the fact that the Cadets beat . polished Navy squad which had ;ost only to Notre Dame in eight previous games, and which was ready to accept a second straigh' bowl invitation. A ringside ..crowd of 102,000 in Philadelphia's- Municipal Stadiun and a nationwide television audi ence watched the Cadets triumph without completing a single pass the very weapon which the experts predicted would win the game— for Navy. Don Holleder, who played as an Ail-American end on the same field the year before quarterbacked such a bruising ground game that -Navy wa forced into six fumbles, three o them while in scoring position. Player of the Week A week earlier Southern Ca halfback Jon Arnett was cheate by an offside penalty of a 98-yar Pellegrini Picked On Leahy's Team Michigan State's Earl Morrall, who engineered one of Notre Dame's two defeats this season, earned the quarterback spot on Frank Leahy's 1955 All-America team. Leahy, whose weekly football prognostications have been aired on 176 television stations this fall, selected his all-star team for TV GUIDE Magazine. Joining Morrall in the backfielc are halfbacks Tommy McDonald of Oklahoma and Howard (Hopa- long) Cassady of Ohio State and fullback Don Schaefer of Notre Dame. •' In the line, the former Irish coach chose Ron Kramer of Michigan and Ron Beagle of Navy Tackles are Jim Parker of Ohio State and Hardiman Cureton o UCLA. At guard, Carl Nystrom o Michigan State and Pat Bisceglia f Notre Dame. Center is Mary and's Bob Pellegrini. Leahy arrived at his selections fter watching scores of games, in erson and on TV, arid consulting 0 other gridiron authorities. Bo 9 Sherman Named Loop's Coach Of Year RICHMOND.

The schedule, too, must have carried weight, for two of the Colonials' losses were to .nationally-ranked Maryland and West Virginia in games in which GW made belter- than-expected stands. The Colonials also had to play eight of their nine games on foreign soils. This was Sherman's fourth season as head coach at George Washington and his overall record stands at a break-even 17-17-2.

The fleet back scored 23 points as the Trojans handed nighty Notre Dame its worst beat- ng in ten years—a 42-to-20 upset. Arnett scored three touchdowns— on runs of ten and seven yards and a 67-yard pass play from Jim Contra tto — and kicked five; extra points. Play of the Week For 59 minutes and 53 seconds Denver and Wyoming fought a scoreless duel. Then quarterback Joe Mastrogiovanni booted a 17- yard field goal for Wyoming and the Cowboys kicked off to Denver with the game apparently in the bag. Halfback Max Willsey took the ball on his own 22 and, when trapped, lateraled to fullback Dick Gupton. Gupton romped 70 yards to the winning touchdown as time ran out and with John Watts on his back the last five yards. Wyoming athletic director Glenn Jacoby, whose school thus lost a share of the Skyline conference title with Colorado A •& M. protested that the field judge blew the ball dead before it was lateraled and that no official ever signalled the TD because there wasn't one within 40 yards of the goal'line.

Sherman's current George Washington club ranked ninth nationally 'in -total defense and fourth in forward pass defense. Only Florida and Maryland scored more than two touchdowns against it. Sherman topped a list that also ncluded The Citadel's John Sauer who produced his school's first winning team, in 13 yeans; West Vir ginia's Lewis, whose teem won the conference title for the third year in a row; Virginia Tech's Frank Moseley, and Davidson's Bill Dole Hollywood Plans Movie On Rocky HOLLYWOOD (tf> — Heavyweight hampion Rocky Marciano's manger, Al Weill, is in Hollywood ne- 'otiating for the filming of the tory of Rocky's life.
