Three Hawks on 2nd Unit— ICeyes Tops in Big 10 CHICAGO (AP) — Cocham- pions Purdue, Indiana and Minnesota bagged 12 places on the 1967 Associated Press All-Big Ten football squad. Purdue's Leroy Keyes was the only unanimous choice by the board of sportswriters in the Big Ten area. Defensive back Tom Sakal of Minnesota missed unanimity by one vote. The offensive and defensive units, plus kicking specialist, Dick Emmerich of Northwestern, did not have a single repeater from the 1966 lineups. However, three players from last year's second team were elevated to the No. 1 units. They were Keyes, split end John Wright of Illinois and linebacker Jim Sniadecki of Indiana. Purdue headed the selections with five players. Joining Keyes on offensive were backs Mike Phipps, the squad's only sophomore, and Perry Williams, and end Jim Beirne. On defense was middle guard Chuck Kyle. In addition to Sakal, Minnesota took three other spots with offensive tackle John Williams, defensive end Bob Stein and defensive tackle McKinley Boston. Rose Bowl-bound Indiana won three berths with offensive guard Gary Cassels and line- gackers Jim Sniadecki and Ken Kaczmarek. The offensive line averages 225 pounds and the defensive linesmen average 224. Rounding out the offensive team were end Jim Beirne, Purdue; tackle Dick Himes, Ohio State; guard Bruce Gunstra, Northwestern; center Joe Dayton, Michigan; and back Times Herald, Carroll, la. Tuesday, Nov. 28, 1967 Ron Johnson, Michigan.

John McKay's Trojans were awarded 474 points today to 436 to Tennessee in the final Associated Press major college poll. Southern California, which finished its regular season with a 9-1 record, received 36 first- place ballots in voting by a panel of 49 sports writers and broadcasters. Tennessee, 8-1 with one regular season game remaining be fore its Orange Bowl date with Oklahoma, received 11 first- place votes. Oklahoma was third with 311 points, followed by Indiana with 245 and Notre Dame with 243. Indiana, Southern Cat's Rose Bowl opponent, dropped out of the Top Ten after losing to Minnesota, but the Hoosiers roared back to gain fourth after upsetting Purdue and finish with a regular-season 9-1 mark. Notre Dame got one first- place vote and so did Sugar Bowl-bound Wyoming, which finished sixth with 222 points. Rounding out the Top Ten are Oregon State, Alabama, Purdue and Penn State. Besides Indiana, Penn State is the only new member of the Top Ten. It was a last-chance situation for the Gator Bowl-bound Nittany Lions, who had not been in the Top Ten before at any time this season. UCLA, fourth last week before being upset by Syracuse, and Houston, 10th before being surprised by Tulsa, dropped out of the rankings. The Top Ten, with first place votes in parentheses and points on a 10-9-8-etc basis: 1. Southern Cal (36) 474 2. Tennessee (11) 436 3. Oklahoma 311 4. Indiana 245 5. Notre Dame (1) 243 6.

Dr. Thompson commented after the 12-member council completed interviews with four more assistant coaches interested in the post vacated by Clay Stapleton. Bobb McKittrick of UCLA, Paul Kemp of Iowa State, Mervin Johnson of Arkansas and Al Onofrio of Missouri went before the council Monday. Dr. Thompson said no action was taken following the talks. The council interviewed three other coaching aides, Pat James of Oklahoma, Carl Selmer of Nebraska and Lou McCullough of Ohio State, on Sunday. Stapleton ended a 10-year career as Cyclone coach this season to devote full time to the Big Eight school's athletic directorship. Dr. Thompson said the council is considering only those candidates who appeared before the council. SUFFERS STROKE (XImeg Herald News Service) DEDHAM — George Willenborg Sr. of Dedham was taken to St. Anthony Hospital about 11 a.m. Friday by ambulance after becoming ill at his home. He suffered a stroke. By The Associated Press Kansas quarterback Bob Douglass was voted Big Eight Back of the Week for his 152 yards total offense, a season individual high against the Missouri defense, ranked No. 2 na- ionally. He made the big plays in a 17-6 victory. He threw a 52-yard bomb to swift Ben Olison, the ball traveling 50 yards in the air, for a 7-6 Kansas lead. A few minutes later his 19-yard run and passes of 11 and 14 yards led to a field goal, for a 10-6 edge. Late in the third quarter, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound junior from El Dorado, Kan., nearly hit the Tigers with a three-play haymaker. After runs of 10 and 28 yards, he fired a stroke to John Mosier, running full speed two steps behind the Mizzou secondary, at the MU 21-yard line. It appeared to be a 44-yard TD, but the ball bounced out of Mosier's arms as he was trying to tuck it away. Butch Davis picked it off and returned it to midfield. Missouri was stopped at the Kansas 12 and 29. Then it was Douglass' turn again. He led a 42-yard clock- killing drive with a 14-yard pass and runs of 3, 8, and 8 yards. Douglass actually grossed 208 yards as he ran for 91, was thrown for 56 yards in losses trying to pass and hit 6 of 11 passes for 117 yards. His season total of 1,741 total offense missed the league record by eight yards. He's the first Jayhawk to win the total offense crown since All America Ray Evans did it in 1947. "You thought I was kidding when I said Douglass is as good as Gar Beban of UCLA," said Dan Devine, Mizzou coach. "If anything, he's stronger." In two games against Missouri, 196566, Beban averaged 181.5 passing, 29 rushing and UCLA averaged 19 points—a win and a tie. Another top candidate was wingback Eddie Hinton of Oklahoma. "Hinton played extremely well," said OU Coach Chuck Fairbanks. "He made a key contribution on each of our scores." Hinton scored the winning TD on a 23-yard bolt, caught 5 passes for 53 yards, rushed 7 times for 69, returned two kickoffs 53 yards and one punt 6 yards. Other nominees were quarterback Ronnie Johnson of Okla- homa State, three TD passes of 13, 25 and 46 yards and a 31- yard TD run against K-State; Colorado's Charles Greer, a top all-around game with a fumble recovery, pass interception and pass break plus 35 yards on three punt returns; Nebraska's Ben Gregory, with 120 yards on 8 pass receptions, one a great 43-yarder, and excellent blocking; and Cornelius Davis, K- State. Douglass was chosen for the second time this season. Nebraska's Wayne Meylan, an All America middle guard, was the Big Eight Lineman of the week. McKinnie Led Hawks On Ground IOWA CITY (AP) - Silas Mo Kinnie's last season on the Iowa football team was his best. The bruising senior fullback led the Hawkeyes in rushing as weli as scoring, racking up 588 yards on the ground and notching 56 points, final statistics showed Tuesday. McKinnie averaged 3.5 yards on 166 carries and scored nine touchdowns and one conversion on a run. Although quarterback Ed Podolak missed nearly a third of the season with a cracked rib, he still easily led the Hawk- eyes in total offense with 1,014 yards on passes and another 323 on runs. Podolak connected on 79 of 162 pass attempts for five touchdowns, while his replacement, sophomore Mike Cilek, completed 61 of 136 passes for 735 yards and four touchdowns. Other team leaders: Pass receptions — Al Bream, junior end, 55 catches for 703 yards and five touchdowns. Tackles—Rod Barnhart, sophomore linebacker, 124. Kick off returns — Tony Williams, senior, 24 attempts for 433 yards. Pass interceptions - Steve Wilson, junior safety, seven. Wilson also led in passes broken up, six; fumble recoveries, three, and punt returns, 254 yards on 24 tries. Fairbanks and Rodgers Top Big 8 Grid Coaches KANSAS CITY (AP)-The Big] Eight had two football Coaches of the Year this fall—Chuck Fairbanks of Oklahoma and Pepper Rodgers of Kansas. Pick one if you wish. You'll be right either way. They are two of the best candidates in many a year. Never have two new head coaches made a greater impact on the Big Eight in the same season. In the Associated Press annual poll, they finished about 50 • 50. Dan Devine of Missouri was the only other coach with any votes. Fairbanks, 34, won the championship and an Orange Bowl bid with a team that was 4-3 in the league in 1966 and picked to finich in a fourth place tie by newsmen making a 2,200-mile pre-season trip to league camps. Fairbanks had been thrust into the job in the middle of spring practice, four days after Coach Jim Mackenzie died of a heart attack. Rodgers, 36, directed the Jay- hawks to a second place tie at 5-2 with a squad that was 0-6-1 in the league last year and picked a shaky sixth place, a scant two points above the cellar. Going into the last quarter, Kansas led Colorado 8-6 and Oklahoma 10-7, but lost both by four. Never before in the 61-year history of the conference had a school improved by five league victories in one year. Both coaches had long been considered prime head coaching material. OU had no choice but to pick a new head man from its staff when Mackenzie died. Fairbanks, a polished speaker, meticulous organizer and low key on the practice field, was chosen over gravel-voiced Pat James a defensive genius. Fairbanks promptly named James his chief assistant. "I'm grateful for Pat's effort^" Fairbanks said. "He's the finest defensive coach in the country." Fairbanks had never played a down of defense, high school or college, when the first two-platoon era ended in the middle of his career at Michigan State in 1953. Yet he became a good defensive end his senior year, served as defensive backfield coach at Arizona State and was the architect of OU's excellent pass defense in 1966. But he also served as offensive chief of Houston's explosive 1965 team, the last of his four seasons there. The effervescent Rodgers, a former Georgia Tech quarterback under Bobby Dodd, quickly became recognized as an offensive geniub as he tutored quarterbacks Rich Mayo of Air Force's Cotton Bowl team, Heisman Trophy winner Steve Spurrier at Florida and Gary Beban at UCLA. Bob Douglas developed into a player of the same mold this fall. The Rodgers offense is bold and imaginative, yet simple and sound. It's based on execution and the .trend-breaking, unexpected play. "I'll never have a squad I appreciated more," Rodgers said. "They played hurt and did everything possible to gain respect and success."
