A SMELLY SITUATION ! The Matesic incident at Tempe came as no surprise to this corner Anyone who witnessed the Arizona-Tempe game and closely watched ' the play of Joe (alias Edward " Andrew) Matesic’ could not help but wonder how a big guy like that could play such terrific football and still be classified as only a freshman It didn’t make’ sense Matesic was heads and shoulders above everyone on the field that night He was without a doubt as good a tackle as there was in the Border conference even on par with Texas Tech’s Jerrel Price After the game this writer remarked to Bill Rider KCNA sports-- caster: "That Matesic Good gosh- he was terrific Why he looked as if he’s been playing for the past five years in fast competition He has too much on the ball to be a freshman Wonder how and where Tempe -ever got that guy?” The identical remark was made to Coach Bob Winslow several times later with Winslow agreeing that Matesic was quite 'a man ' Winslow gave no hint 'a to anything' being underhanded in Matesic’si case but J F - (Pop) McKale : indicated upon questioning that the University was checking on Matesic - - This whole thing is a sorry mess One observer :lose to the football scene at Arizona remarked that local officials had known t about Matesic for nearly two months 1 1 For some time Arizona coaches have been quite bitter about the differences In the academic setups between" the state university and Tempe Local coaches claim that the going for athletes at Tempe is made much easier than at Arizona and for that reason the job ef recruiting talent is a softer task Now that the Matesic incident has been made public Tempe undoubtedly will watch and check 1 athletes’ transcripts more eruditiously Tempe has been hurt by this event Just what effect all this will have on Tempe’s future athletic policies will only be answered by time - The -recent resignations of Larry Simering’s football assistants the resignation of Don Kinzle as athletic director and possibly as ‘ track coach all have created an unsavory taste and unpleasant odor about the state Telnpe had ‘ better watch itself and its athletic department or it will be weakened to such an extent that Arizona may beat ’em in football 1 t Demaret Wins Crosby!
