Q-Backs Wind Up Grid Season Monday Night Downtown Quarterbacks wound up the grid season at Lubbock hotel last night, with movies of the Tcch-Amon:i game highlighting the program. Coach Dell Morgan showed the movies' after commenting briefly on the Raider-Hardin-Simmons game last Saturday. "It was just a case of not doing anything righl," Morgan averred. The boys had their instructions, but everything went haywire once they got on the field . . . and Hardin-Simmons- was ready for us. But we'll be after them next year . . . and the boys who played Saturday won't forget this yenr's licking. If we'd played the kind of bull we played against Texas A&M and Southern Methodist, we'd have won the Harriin-Sim- mons gnmc." lech Cagers Open Against Oklahoma Aggies Tonight Wilh smoke still settling from the football season, Texas Tech's baskcl.ballcrs launch their 1S46- •17 bnskclbnll campaign lonigh! when they tangle with Oklahoma A&M. defending national c-agc champs, at.

It's loo bad lhat they were "out" against Ihe Cowboys. We're one nf those rock-skulled dichiirds who still believe that the Tcchsans could have won that one, although we realize that there arc plenty of folks—including, probably, most of the 13,000 who snt in on Saturday's setto—who would argue this poi nt until the Panama Canal freezers over. « • * But the Raiders didn't win. In fact, they didn't even come close tfi winning, and for almost 45 minutes we had our _ own personal doubts as to whether they would escape a 1 ' whitewashing. In case you missed Sund-Vs account of th e game, we'll save you a lot of reading lime by saying that the Cowboys rocked Tech for three first-half, touchdowns- two on "high school" passes and the third 'following a fumble recovery—then coasted in as Tech's running game rambled over all of Fair Park stadium's turf except the double-stripe (and that, for the benefit of you readers who , don't follow football, is where they pay off!). * , * * To usl it looked like a case ,'oC some foxy scouting by H-SU, The Cowboys' first scries of downs following the opening kickoff obviously were pre-arranged, and someone on the Cowboy staff had spotted a gaping Tech. weakness nn defense against deep passes. For on the second down from scrimmage Al Johnson wound up and heaved a "cloud buster" to Bullet Cook to start the touchdown drive. That punch—followed by another scoring aerial by the siimf combination .five plays later —rocked Tech back on its heels, and Ihe Raiders never fully recovered. Johnson went on to hit four of the five tosses he tried, and might h;ive kept right on pitching strikes if he hadn't decided that 21 points was enough for one afternoon. * * • A few observers have told us they considered those H-SU pass completions as "lucky." _ We're- inclined to disagree. We think those plays were planned and developed perfectly, for Tech in earlier games— against Rice and Oklahoma A&M—had exhibited n leaky defense against lengthy passes. The surprising point to us was thnt more learns didn't try the deep passing game against the Raiders during the course of the season. * tf * On ihe Tech side nf Saturday's Irdger, Roland (Tirfry) Nabors checked in Ihe best defensive performance we've seen this season, with , r >a minutes of football that left even Cowboy rooters marvcl-i ling. The entire Tech line kept Rudy Mobley in check from scrimmage, allowing him an aver- ago of two yards in 29 ball-carrying efforts. In Ihe backfield. Roger Smith, Lecte Jackson and Krnest Hawkins displayed spurts of running brilliance! and the punting of Smith, Jackson and.Xack Henderson was above par. . . But the one glaring offensive shortcoming of the 104(5 Red Raiders became most evident Saturday. They just didn't have a passing game—and it's hard to get 22 poinls in DO minutes when you're picking up ground four yards at a clip. ' HORSE OF YEAH NKW YORK, Dec. 2 (IP}— Robert J.
