That's about the only direction he can look without much cringing. Illinois survived some last quarter Hawkeye heroics here Saturday for a 21-19 victory that lodged Iowa in the Big Ten cellar for the fourth straight year. But Nagel said despite his team's poor showing this fall (1-8-1 overall and 0-6-1 in the Big Ten), he thought it was improved over last year's edition- his first as Iowa's coach. And, he confidently predicts "next year is going to be a lot even better the next year." There are a couple of reasons for Nagel's optimism. The bulk of this year's squad returns next fall, and there will be some healthy fortification from what is considered the best freshman team the school has ever produced. The Hawkeyes picked a fantastic way to put a finishing touch to their season. The Illini completely dominated the first three quarters in rolling to a 21-0 command, and apparent victory, before the lowan's amazing urpising almost turned the tide. Failure on gambles for a pair of two-point conversions and a field goal attempt that was better than this, and it will be I short in the closing seconds turned out to be the difference. Iowa struck for a touchdown in the opening minute of the last period when quarterback Mike Cilek and end Al Bream teamed on a 27-yard pass play. Less than six minutes later, the Hawks cut the deficit to 21-12 when Cilek hit Bream with a nine-yard scoring toss. But attempts on two-point conversions after both touchdowns failed. Just a few minutes after that, Guy Bilek intercepted an enemy pass and returned it seven yards to the Hawkeye 45. Nine plays later, Si McKinnie bucked over from the one. The Hawkeyes had enough time after that to regain possession and drive into enemy territory, but a field goal attempt by Bob Anderson from the Illini 41 was short as the final seconds ticked off. Anderson's conversion after the ithird touchdown, by the way, gave him a perfect career on conversions — 32 in a row without a miss in three years. Nagel explained the Hawks gambled on the two-point try after the first two touchdowns in hopes of surprising the Illini. "If we had kicked after those first two scores," he said, "then Illinois would have been ready for a two-point try after the third touchdown." Nagel said he was highly disappointed the rally fell short. "I never wanted a game as much as I did this one for the sake of aur seniors," he said. "They held the team together. The players worked hard all season...they deserved something better than a two-point defeat." Regular quarterback Ed Podolak saw only limited duty because of a bad back bruise suffered a week earlier. Cilek took care' of the replacement job in record fashion. He completed 27 of 47 passes for 312 yards. The completions broke a Big Ten record.

Coach Johnny Pont, who labels his offense as "my uninhibited sophomores" and his defense as the "serious seniors," saw his Hoosiers put it all together in the final game of )his third season atthe Indiana helm. Not since Bob McMillan's "Po'r L'il Boys" had Indiana won a Big Ten championship, and after a 1-11 campaign in 1966, few took the Hoosiers serious this year. After piling up eight straight victories, the Hoosiers even lost their "Cinderella" tag when they were hammered by Minnesota 33-7. But they came back. Fullback Terry Cole, the only senior in the starting offensive backfield, helpod show the way for sophomores Harry Gonso, Jade Butcher and reckless John Isenbarger. On defense, such seniors as Ken Kaczmarek, Dave Kornowa, Doug Crusan and Brown Marks put a stop to fabled Leroy Keyes and Mike Phipps when it counted. ISU Talks With OlPs Pat James AMES (AP)-Iowa State University's Athletic Council was to continue its search for a new Cyclone football coach Monday after beginning interviews for the vacant post Sunday. Asst. football coach** Pat Jamas of Oklahoma, Carl Selmer of Nebraska and Lou McCullough of Ohio State appeared before the 12-rcember council in tha first Intorvlawt. Iowa State Asst. Coach Paul Kemp was one of those scheduled to be interviewed Monday. The council is looking for a successor to Clay Stapleton, who has ended 10 years as Iowa State coach to devote full time to the Big Eight school's athletic directorship. Th« council, including faculty, alumni and student representatives, has not indicated how many persons will be interviewed or when a selection will be made. James, Selmer and McCullough all have had successful coaching careers. James, 40, developed the Oklahoma defense which has been the stingiest in the nation in preventing opponents from scoring.

McCullough, 42, direct* recruiting at Ohio State. He formerly served under Stapleton at Iowa State, from 1958 to 1962, and he and Stapleton were assistants together at Wyoming.

"A lesser man By The Associated Press Green Bay's burial brigade has made an early killing in the National Football League's Central Division. But, if you ask Packer pundit Vince Lombard!, Chicago's Papa Bear is a very lively corpse. Lombard! lauded George Halas, Chicago's 72-year-old owner-coach, Sunday after the Packers nailed down the Central title with a 17-13 verdict over the rugged Bears. "Get this straight; he's an old man but he's a great man," Lombardi told newsmen in Chicago, where stories had been written suggesting Halas step down Bears' might have given up after what happened to his team earlier in the year. But Halas doesn't know what it means. "Instead of giving up, Mr. Halas turns around and gives the league its most improved team. The Bears are a great club, and I'm glad we clinched it against them." While the Packers' hard- earned victory gave them an insurmonutable 3%-game lead in the Central Division, idle Dallas closed in on the Capitol title, Cleveland clung to the Century lead and unbeaten Baltimore regained its one-game edge in the Coastal race.' New York flattened Philadelphia 44-7, dropping the Eagles three games off Dallas' Capitol pace with three games remaining. The Browns outscored Washington 42-37 to remain one game ahead of New York in the Century scramble. The Colts moved one-game up on idle Los Angeles in the Coastal derby by trimming San Francisco 26-9 for a 9-0-2 mark. Minnesota downed Pittsburgh 41-27 and New Orleans edged Atlanta 27-24 in other NFL games. In American Football League play, Houston kept its Eastern Division pennant hopes alive with a 27-6 victory over Boston and Miami upended Buffalo 1714. Green Bay's defending NFL champs capitalized on Dave Robinson's pass interception and Travis Williams' 69-yard kickoff return for two first-half touchdowns, added a third-quarter field goal by Don Chandler and then held off the Bears for their eighth victory against two losses and one tie. The second- place Bears are 5-6. Bart Starr passed five yards to Boyd Dowler for the Packers' first TD and Donny Anderson plunged one yard for the second. Chandler's 38-yard field goal followed Gale Sayers' fumble of a Pacer punt. Sayers, however, rambled for 117 yards on 18 carries and scored the Bears' lone touchdown on a 43-yard jaunt. Two field goals by Mac Percival completed the Chicago scoring Scrambling Fran Tarkenton led the Giants, 6-5, on their biggest point binge in four years, passing for 261 yards and three touchdowns. Homer Jones caught two TO passes, including a 63-yarder that helped him become the first NFL receiver to go over the 1,000-yard mark this season. Leroy Kelly topped the 1,000- yard plateau in rushing yardage, streaking for 163 yards and two touchdowns while helping Cleveland, 7-4, offset the red-hot passing of Redskin quarterback Sonny Jurgensen.
