KATL1FF COLLEGE STATION, Te.x. <AP> - It's all in how you look at U This business 01 picking Texas A&M for the cellar in the 1M2 Southwest Conference football race. Almost without exception the coaches and sports writers have chosen the Cadels for DIE bottom rung. Coach Ray George picks his Aggies lo finish third. George sees Texas Christian. Texas, Arkansas, nice and Southern Mclbodisl. to tie for first. He sees Baylor in second place and his Ag- gies third. That's his way of selecting the Cadets for the bottom. Those who have picked the Agaies for the cellar have done so on the basis of facts and figures. It's a fact that George lost his dream backfield and a total of 16 Icttermen and these forecasters figure you can't replace Glenn Lippman, Billy Tidwell, Bob Smith, Ya'le Lary and Dick Gartlcmal.
