Gotor Bowl Teams Shaken? Volunteer Coach Offered Fla. Job BEST BY BALLOT By CHARLES S. ALDINGER JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (UPI) --The biggest question about Saturday's Gator Bowl football clash between Florida (8-1-1) and Tennessee (9-1) is not who will win. It's which coach will bo sitting where when the music stops? Tennessee Coach Doug Dickey isn't ready to say. In fact, his terse admission that Florida had offered him Kay Graves' coaching job was barely out of his mouth Tuesday before the motel operator stopped switching calls to Dickey's room. Tennessee's athletic director, Bob Woodruff, himself a former Florida head footiball coach, wasn't happy about the whole thing being out in the open just before the big game. Not good for morale, you know. "I have no comment," snapped Woodruff from his motel room near Dickey's. "And I'm sure Coach Dickey has said all that's going to be said about it for right now." Graves, 51, denied that he is giving up his job as head coach to devote his full time to being Florida athletic director, the other cape he wears on the 20,000-student Gainesville, Fla. campus. But the fact that Dickey, 37, had been offered the job confirmed what a number of southern newspapers had been reporting for several weeks: Graves is tired from the demands of two jobs and will quit despite an all-sophomore backfield which promises at least two more years of gravy at the Gator helm. If Dickey, a graduate of Florida who played quarterback for the Gators in 1951 and '52, turns down the Florida job, then it apparently will go to Florida assistant head coach Gene Ellenson, 48, a specialist in mdbile defenses. Both Dickey and Graves have compiled strong records at their two schools and both jobs are considered top plums in the college ranks. Dickey, who makes $26,500 a year in salary and about $25,000 in fringe benefits such a; television shows, has compiled a 46.14.4 mark in six years at Tennessee. And Dickey has won championships in the tough Southeastern Conference in two o: the last three years including this year. That's something tha' Graves has never done a f Thurmond Cleared In Paternity Suit SAN FRANCISCO (UPI)--A Superior Court jury Tues day dismissed a paternity case involving center Nate Thur mond of the San Francisco Warriors.

He succeeds Sta Lowe, who died in August lorida despite a good 69-31-4 cord in 10 years at the Gator elm. "As I said before," Dickey aid Tuesday, "I don't know of better coaching job in the ountry than at Tennessee. "This is a heck of a time for is to come up."

The team was dominated by the Oakland Raiders, the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs, who landed 13 first-team berths among them. Raiders, champions of Western Division, had five first- teamers and the Jets, champions of the Eastern Division, had four. Kansas City, runnerup to Oakland, also placed four players on the first unit. The Oakland players selected were: split end Fred Biletnikoff, center Jim Otto, defensive tackle Tom Keating, defensive halfback Willie Brown, and safety Dave Grayson. The Jets were: quarterback Joe Namath, running back Matt Snell, of- 'ensive tackle Winston Hill and defensive tackle John Elliot. And, from Kansas City: offensive tackle Jim Tyrer, offensive guard Ed Budde, cor- nerback Bobby Bell and safety Johnny Robinson. Rounding out the team are: Tight end Bob Trumpy, Cincinnati; wide receiver Lance Alworth, San Diego; running back Floyd Little, Denver; offensive guard, Walt Sweeney, SanjDiego; defensive ends Rich Elliot.

Coming from Starr, this is significant for the veteran Packer leader was himself a recipient of the same honor in 1966.

But Gabe, as the guys on be Rams call him, was the winner. He gave them the big play when it counted. He was he stalwart who stood up to enemy blitzes and delivered the crucial offense on a team which didn't score in big bunches. He also provided the pay-off--more touchdown passes than any quarterback in the league. There is a precedent for the Jurgensen-Gabriel switch-off on honors. In 1959, Johnny Unitas of the Colts was voted the quarterback on the player's All- Pro team but Charley Conerly m a split ballot, was awarded the Jim Thrope Trophy, as the most valuable player. In this year's v o t i n g Jurgensen was second, followed Bears, who made a remarkable Byrd, Buffalo. comeback from knee surgery ' ' to lead the NFL in rushing, and Joe Kapp, the inspirational leader of the Minnesota Vikings' attack. A distant fifth was Calvin Hill, the rookie of the year and a surprise spearhead of the Dallas Cowboys' ground game. Gabriel will receive his trophy at the NEA-CBS AltStar party in Hollywood's Television :ity on Jan. 15, and the ceremony will be shown na- ionally on the 1969 NFL All-Pro ["earn show, Sunday, Jan. 18, 3:30-4:00 p.m. EST, before the ro Bowl game.

His father, a native of the Philip- Dines who eventually settled in Wilmington, N. C., is 5-6 and (Jurgensen is also from Wilmington, N. C., and preceded Gabriel as a high school quarterback.)

It usually takes halfbacks two seasons to be able to cut and run at top speed again after a knee injury. And it was feared that Sayers' ability to break loose in the open field was ruined when his knee was wrecked because he might lose a step or two. Sayers, though, came back this year and looked just like the Sayers of old and he was one of the few players the Bear fans could cheer this year as the team struggled to a 1-13 season --the worst in the club's history.

Wampfler, who played college football at Miami of Ohio where he also did some coaching, said be would come to Fort Collins early next month following the Cotton Bowl game between Notre Dame and Texas.
