•—Wednesday, November 26, 1975 VAUfY MORNING STAR Winning The Toss Triggers An Overtime Disaster In NFL By HAL BOCK AP Sports Writer Any pro football fan worth his tailgate party can tell you that the key to winning an overtime game lies in winning the coin toss. The first team to score wins and it’s easier to score when you have the ball than when you don’t. Ergo, you want to win the toss and elect to receive. Right? Wrong. There have been six overtime games played in the National Football League this season In five of them, the team winning the toss and choosing to receive the kickoff wound up on the short end of the final score. Maybe Abner Haynes had the right idea after all. It was Haynes who won the coin flip before the start of the overtime period in the 1962 American Football League championship game and promptly used his option to pick which goal he would defend. Houston was so flabbergasted that it did no damage offensively and Haynes’ Dallas club eventually won the game in the sixth period. The NFL adopted the overtime rule for regular season play before the start of the 1974 season after there had been seven ties during 1973. The overtime rule was used only twice last season. Winning the coin flip had no effect on the outcome of the game. In the first overtime game last year, Denver and Pittsburgh struggled through 15 extra minutes with neither team scoring. The game ended in a 35-35 tie. The only other overtime was between the New York Jets and New York Giants. The Giants won the toss, elected to receive and failed to score The Jets came back and won 26-20. In the six overtime games played this season, only once has the team winning the toss taken the ball and gone on to score without surrendering it to the other team. That happened 10 days ago when St. Louis beat Washington 20-17 on Jim Bakken’s 37-yard field goal seven minutes into the overtime That was one of three OT games in which Washington has been involved this season. The Redskins won their first, beat* ing Dallas 30-24 on Nov, 2. In the last two weeks, they’ve lost successive extra period games, first to St. Louis on Bakken’s field goal and then to Oakland last Sunday on a 27-yard field goal by George Bianda at 7:13 of the overtime period. In the other overtime games, Dallas whipped St. Louis 37-31 on a three-yard touchdown pass from Roger Staubach to Billy Joe Dupree, Los Angeles trimmed San Diego 13-10 on Tom Dempsey’s 22-yard field goal and Kansas City topped Detroit 24*21 on a 26-yard field goal by JanStenerud Without the overtimes, the standings in the NFC East would not be drastically changed but Washington would be better off St. Louis would still be first, Dallas second and Washington third. But the Redskins would trail the Cowboys by only one- half game instead of one game and would be 1 M 2 back of the Cardina Is instead of two behind swc Grid Briefs TEXAS. AUSTIN, Tex. (UPD-Texas running back Earl Campbell was hospitalized Tuesday for fluid accumulations in his elbows but coaches said the move was just a precaution. “We’re not concerned,” said head coach Darrell Royal. Campbell, averaging better than 100 yards rushing per game, injured his elbows on an artificial playing surface. Quarterback Marty Akins, who injured a knee against TCU and was questionable for Friday’s game with Texas A&M, ran better in practice than at anytime since the injury. The Longhorns ran through a brisk 75 minute workout. They leave for College Station Friday morning. BAYLOR. WACO. Tex. (UPI) — Baylor coach Grant Teaff sent his team through extensive pass rush drills Tuesday in preparation for their season finale against Rice. He said the lack of an effective rush helped SMU beat the Bears in the second half last weekend. Tight end Ron Lee. with an infected leg. and defensive tackle Wharton Foster, with a broken toe, missed workouts. TEXASA&M COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (UPI) — Texas A&M coach Emory Bellard said Tuesday senior Mike Jay would be the starting quarterback for the Aggies against Texas Friday. “David Shipman is well and is looking good in practice but he has missed three weeks’ work. We’re going into the game to play both Jay and Shipman but Mike will start,” Bellard said. Shipman, junior from Odessa Permian, pulled a hamstring in the Baylor game and didn't return to work until Wednesday of the SMU game. In the first half against SMU he went down with a strained knee and Jay took over. This is the first week Shipman has been able to take a snap from center. Otherwise, the Aggies are healthy with the exception of guard-tackle Craig Glendenning, junior from Celina. Tex., who strained a knee in the Rice game. He should be ready for reserve duty by Friday. Texas A&M, ranked No. 2 nationally, has a 5-0 Southwest Conference record and must face Arkansas Dec 6. If Texas, ranked fifth in the nation, defeats the Aggies Friday, the Longhorns will finish with a 7-0 SWC mark and earn the host spot in the New Year’s Day Cotton Bowl game. UT, Aggies Each Have Two On Coaches' A-A ROCHESTER. N Y. (AP) Ohio State’s Archie Griffin, Southern California’s Ricky Bell and Pittsburgh’s Tony Dorsett were named Tuesday to the backfield of the American Football Coaches All-American team.
