. Tailgating, TV, Big Deficits for '72 Allen and Bob Barlette are fast. Lack of speed continues to hamper Army's punch so that Tom Cahill is probably going to rely more and more on the throwing of Kingsley Fink. Navy's coach, Rick Forzano, continues to predict seven victories for the M i d d i e s although his three previous teams have won a total of six games. Forzano stands alone. Pittsburgh has its problems getting off dead center and is trying to move by going to the wishbone. Villanova and Temple remain on the fringe of the East's big independent group.

With Ed Marinaro gone, Cornell may have difficulty challenging Dartmouth for the Ivy League title in the fashion of 1971 when the teams tied for the crown after the Big Green beat the Big Red in head-to-head combat. Yale c o u l d b e D a r t m o u t h ' s strongest opponent with Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Princeton. Penn and Brown trying. But the whole ivy pic- -ture can change off the field if black athletes, voicing unrest in the league, boycott their teams. SOUTH Condredge Holloway of Tennessee and Mel Barkum of Mississippi State will be the first black quarterbacks in the Southeastern Conference. They take over sputtering 1971 offenses so that one looks elsewhere for the strength in the powerful SEC. Charlie McClendon seems to have settled on Bert Jones .as his q u a r t e r b a c k for Louisiana State, much as Bob Devaney stopped using two quarterbacks after 1970 and stuck with Jerry Tagge at Nebraska last season. LSU m a y n o t b e t h e t e a m through an easy season without too many difficulties. The two quarterbacks will m e e t Sept. 23 in w h a t promises to be the air game of the season. plan of things, a quarterback is a must. MIDWEST Ohio State has quarterback problems but is able to field seven returning starters from both its offense and defense. . But Coach Woody Hayes says, "We're still not going to throw a lot. I don't like those interceptions.'' There is ample strength, with such players as Randy Gradishar at linebacker, to expect a lot from Ohio State. Michigan has a job holding onto its Big Ten title that could again be settled when these two go at it. Nov. 25. Hopefully, Hayes will remain calm this time. Purdue is strong and Bob Blackman has Illinois moving. But the Illini have one of the n a t i o n ' s most d i f f i c u l t schedules and Big Ten teams have not been doing well of late outside their own league. Notre Dame, like Ohio S t a t e , h a s q u a r t e r b a c k problems. But in the case of the Irish, the situation spells trouble. There are always more good football players per square foot at Notre Dame than at any other campus.

A favorable schedule gives the Tigers the chance for another impressive record. However, there is one hitch. LSU must play Mississippi and Alabama on successive weeks, a roadblock that also stands in the way of Georgia's having a fine campaign. Paul "Bear" Bryant's Alabama team will miss the r u n n i n g of Johnny Musso although Terry Davis is back to control the Tide's wishbone from quarterback. North Carolina has lost too many players from its A t l a n t i c Coast Conference championship team to be rated as easy repeater. Maryland may offer the Tar Heels the best battle for the ACC crown after years of looking up to the league champion. Gary Huff of Florida State and Don Strock of Virginia Tech have difficult acts to f o l l o w -- t h e i r own. H u f f passed for 2,736 yards in 1971 and Strock passed for 2,577. Huff could lead his Seminoles Cliff Brown may start where he left off for Notre Dame last y e a r but by season's end a sophonore, Tom Clements, may be the quarterback. The Big Eight remains the most powerful league of pro prospects in the nation with three teams that can run an opponent into the ground. Colorado, Nebraska and Oklahoma will also have to settle their own battles in what should again lead to the national title. . · Colorado has the chance to unseat Nebraska because of a big group of returning athletes led by Ken Johnson at q u a r t e r b a c k a n d Charlie Davis, who ran for 1.386 yards as a sophomore. Also, those two home games agains N e b r a s k a and Oklahoma help. The Sooners and Cornhus kers will be breaking in new quarterbacks but with their total talent they may not miss a stride in the conversion. Southwest Arkansas and Texas have been keeping the Southwest C o n f e r e n c e t i t l e t o themselves for so long that s o m e o n e s a i d , " F r a n k Broyles and Darrell Royal m u s t h a v e t h e t r o p h i e s stashed in their golf bags." This year appears to be Broyles' season to get the trophy away fron, his golfing buddy as the Arkansas Razorbacks have Joe Ferguson back at quarterback. He's one of the best. Texas must find a new signal caller, a job made more d i f f i c u l t because of the m a n i p u l a t i o n o f t h e Longhorns' wishbone. Texas AM might challenge for the Southwest title, or at least know some answers to the Texas wishbone. Emory Bellard, the Aggies' new coach, is c r e d i t e d w i t h d e v i s i n g the L o n g h o r n s ' offense while an assistant to Royal. Houston remains one of the strongest independent teams in the nation. But in 1976 the Cougars became a playing member of the Southwest Conference and Texas and Arkansas will have to worry a little more. Far West Arizona Stale has come to d o m i n a t e t h e W e s t e r n Athletic Conference the way Oklahoma ruled the Big Eight in the 1950s and Frank Kush has built the Sun Devils of Tempe to national ranking.
